Unseen Week: Torn and Shattered (nothing left)
DiR reports: To celebrate the release of Unseen's new CD 'Internal Salvation' this week we have asked Mark to pick his top 5 favorite songs from the CD and tell us a bit about each track. We continue today with the song "Torn and Shattered (nothing left)". Here is Mark: 

This song was done in the middle of the song writing process. The music was done by Tripp our bassist along with Scott our guitarist. The words to this song dwell on finding strength in a time of need. It's somewhat slow for The Unseen I guess it's our album ballad, haha.
- 'Internal Salvation' hits stores today.

86ed Charlotte
Contact Music reports: Rocker JOEL MADDEN and his girlfriend NICOLE RICHIE were escorted out of a luxury California hotel on Saturday (07Jul07), after the GOOD CHARLOTTE frontman almost came to blows with U.S. reality TV star SPENCER PRATT. 

Pratt was dining with his The Hills co-star and fiancee Heidi Montag when the incident at the Beverly Hills Hotel occurred. Pratt claims Madden was angry about comments he was incorrectly reported to have made about Richie's weight. [does she have any weight?]

He tells website In Touch Online, "I was sitting having a quiet lunch with Heidi when Nicole walked in and started pointing at me and then whispering to Joel. "He storms over and starts shouting, 'You've been talking s**t about my girl.' I told him, 'Please can we not do this at the Beverly Hills Hotel. This is ridiculous.' Then he started screaming and calling me names." - the high drama continues here. At least it's more exciting then his last two CDs.

Moby's Latest Beef
Gigwise reports: Moby has hit out at organisers of the Live Earth concerts for selling meat at the shows. 

Speaking through his blog, the vegan dance veteran quoted the UN statistic that livestock breeding and the gases the animals emit is a huge contributor to worldwide the greenhouse gases in the environment.

He writes: "The one thing that still stuns me… is that almost no one in the 'stop global warming' camp talks about the environmental ramifications of animal production. To quote a UN article: ‘rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars.' [yes, but a good steak is a lot tastier than a Honda. Why doesn't be organize a global concert against meat? He could call it Live Stock] - Moby's tirade continues here

Quote of the Week: Saving the Earth With Bad Music
PR reports: The good folks at Hecklerspray spend a good deal of time giving out useful beating tips as well as humorously delivering entertainment news about useless celebs and other "folded" topics. Today they posted their hilarious Live Earth recap which has provided us with more than one quote of the week. Are you ready? Here they are: "...That's right, Saturday saw Al Gore's global Live Earth concerts take place around the world, where a diverse group of musicians including Madonna and Spinal Tap travelled to large vastly-lit sports stadiums in their private jets to tell a televised audience of two billion to use different lightbulbs, sign the vague Live Earth pledge and only drive around at 100mph while loaded up on pot if you're in a Prius like Al Gore's son. Unless you're Madonna, who seemed to think that singing a rubbish new song and telling everyone to jump up and down would have some sort of effect on climate change.

...there's not really any hiding from the fact that trying to save the environment with a series of global concerts that are estimated to have emitted a total of 31,500 tons of carbon - roughly the same amount as you would if you left your TV on standby for 1,684,498 years - is a bit like someone trying to raise awareness for domestic violence by punching his wife in the face a lot."- A lot more here including how Keane can save the world!
