(PCM) YouTube star Todrick Hall is at it again! This time with an absolutely hilarious and incredibly well-done mash-up of hit Disney songs set to the style of classic 90’s R&B. We can’t believe how well these work!
The “90’s Disney” compilation is performed by both Todrick and Shoshana Bean and features songs from Disney films such as “The Little Mermaid”, “The Lion King”, “Beauty And The Beast” and “Aladdin”!
Check it out below and just try not to jam out in front of your screen!
(PCM) Rihanna pulled a prank on Jimmy Kimmel late last night/very early this morning with the help of some of his now-former employees at “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The music superstar snuck into Jimmy’s house, tiptoed up to his bedroom and proceeded to stage a full concert at his bedside (and on it).
(PCM) Yesterday, the internet was buzzing after Jay-Z held a bizarre celebrity-filled press conference to launch his new artist-run music subscription service called Tidal.
Jay-Z recently purchased the platform which is worth an estimated $56 million and will feature high quality audio and exclusive content that is owned by the actual artists. Jay-Z was joined at the press conference by artists such as Rihanna, Kanye West, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Jack White, Alicia Keys, Jason Aldean, Daft Punk, Arcade Fire and of course Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce. Both Calvin Harris and Chris Martin joined in via video conference.
Tidal, prides itself as being by the artist, for the artists and will cost the listener $20 per month. It was not so much the announcement of Tidal that was bizarre, it was just the behavior of the artists in attendance. They were all lined up on the stage appearing very cult-like and made a big to-do about signing an official declaration.
The worst was Alicia Keyes incredibly confusing speech that found her rambling about everything from Jimmi Hendrix to Nietzsche while giggling and humming “Pomp & Circumstance”, she appeared more intoxicated than serious. It didn’t help matters when Madonna threw her leg up on the podium, Usher made odd hand gestures and the rest of the celebrities just stood around the stage looking uncomfortable.
Almost abruptly the sound cut out and then it was over and Tidal was official born … at least we think. You can watch the full bizarre press conference below:
(PCM) In an incredibly smart business move to help protect her brand, pop superstar Taylor Swift has purchased two porn domain names: TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult. It is the hope that by her owning those domains it would put a stop to any internet trolls who would make an attempt to dirty up the singer’s image online.
Over the past few years the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers have significantly expanded the amount of generic top-level domains that one can purchase. In early days you could purchase the normal .com, .net, or.org, but now there are some more interesting choices available such as .adult, .porn, .xxx, and .sucks.
We are actually kind of surprised that Swift and her team did not purchase .sucks as well! While not open to the general buying public yet, certain individuals were given an opportunity to register these new generic top-level domains before everyone else. They will be open for public consumption on June 1, 2015.
(PCM) Doyle may be a man of very little words, but his music speaks volumes and trust me, it was turned up full blast during the band’s recent show at Reverb in Reading, PA.
Doyle is currently out on the road in support of his debut album “Abombinator” and he along with the rest of the band are gearing up to release a follow-up due out later this year. The band consists of frontman Alex Story of Cancerslug, drummer Anthony “Tinybubz” Biuso (previously T.S.O.L., The Dickies, Hed (pe)), and touring bassist Dietrich (Die Trich) Thrall (standing in for Left Hand Graham), and of course the almighty Doyle himself!
The crowd at Reverb that evening may have been small, but they were no less mighty and Doyle delivered a set that was chock full of raw aggression and emotion. So much so, that it literally filled the entire room. Watching Doyle and front man Alex trade-off both slithering and stomping about the stage was hypnotic and overall I was lost in the music from beginning to end.
Doyle is a true monster with his guitar, as he pounds the strings in animalistic fury and never misses a beat. The band overall had an excellent stage presence and truly commanded the attention of the audience from start to finish.
The band played through the “Abombinator” album at break-neck speed and of course die-hard Misfits fans were pleased, as several classic Misfits tunes was spliced into the set. The tour is just beginning to get underway and Doyle has several upcoming shows with both Mushroomhead and Dope that will last throughout the early spring.
Prior to the band’s performance we were able to catch up with Mr. Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein himself to learn some details about the upcoming second album, his delicious “Hotter Than Hell” hot sauce, as well as, touring plans for the rest of this year. Check it out below :

(PCM) Every time I have had the pleasure of seeing Daryl Hall and John Oates perform live, I know that I am in-store for a fantastic evening of stellar musicianship and of course some delightful catchy melodies.
When Daryl Hall and John Oates take to the stage, they churn out hit after hit from beginning to end. To this day, they still have the ability to cause the women in the crowd to lose their minds and more panties were flying at the stage than I have seen at any other rock show in quite some time.
There is a reason that Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer’s Daryl Hall and John Oates are still the number one selling music duo in history. They always knew just how to craft the perfect song and their 14-song set spanned the entire length of their extensive career. Opening up with “Maneater” and “Out Of Touch” to closing their second encore with “Kiss On My List” and “Private Eyes”, there was not a single song that I wanted to hear that was left out of the evenings incredibly tight set list.
The women in the crowd went truly wild during both “She Gone” and “Sara Smile” and I personally had the best time ever dancing my heart out to hits such as “Rich Girl” and my personal favorite “You Make My Dreams”. I adore hearing these songs in the live environment and a lot of the new arrangements do a fantastic job at enhancing an already phenomenal song.
The pair appear to be having a fantastic time on stage and while many artists who have been in the game as long as these two could afford to “phone it in” so to say, Daryl Hall and John Oates sounded both fresh and energized and put on a truly outstanding performance.
Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors. Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegan in the 1970’s, from the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch.” By 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the number-one selling duo in music history, a record they still hold today. In May 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. In 2014, the two musicians hit another high as they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
