|Godhead Week: Day 1|
" I don't like revealing TOO much about my songs, because I like people to interpret them their own way, but I think I can give you my overall inspiration without spoiling it for others…"
Now here is Jason with today's song: "Stay Back": A song about denial. Some people don't know a good thing when it slaps them in the face, and some people are so self-deprecating that they actually push others away, even if they are perfect together. Others feel that they are flawed and don't want to hurt anyone else, so they push others away before it gets too deep.

|Cobain's Ashes: Stolen or Nuts?|
The strange part - well, it's all strange -- is that this past June, Love went public with the news that her late husband's ashes were stolen from her Los Angeles home. Love was apparently storing them in a pink bear-shaped handbag in her closet, which she claimed a friend had swiped.
"I can't believe anyone would take Kurt's ashes from me," Love said at the time. "They were all I had left of my husband. Now it feels like I have lost him all over again." However, the theft was never confirmed. Most of Cobain's ashes had previously been scattered at a New York Buddhist temple and in Washington's Wishkah River.- Now it gets really freaky
|Did Planned X Rating Kill The Motley Crue Film?|
"The Motley Crue thing I was really into and I did a lot of work on it," Charles says. "I wrote a pass on the script and everything, but it was at MTV Films which then got swallowed by Paramount Vantage which then got swallowed by Paramount. All those people were gone that developed it and it got put to the side, so I don't know what's going to happen to it. Also my thing about that which was that I felt it had to be an NC-17 [equal to an X rating] movie, and I thought, 'Well that would be ballsy to do. When was the last time they had a mainstream NC-17 movie?' That'd be a good idea."
"I don't know if you've read the book, but it's really a great read," he continued. "Do you know Neil Strauss at all? He used to work for The New York Times as their pop critic, he wrote the book and he's a really good writer. It's so much better than they deserve, the book, because Motley Crüe is a crappy band but he wrote a really epic book about them. It's really fascinating. What's good about it is how hardcore it is. They've killed people, they've hurt people, they've crippled people, they've done all kinds of crazy things. You'd have to show that for real and I think there was a little bit of reticence about doing that ultimately. But for me, I would do it if it could be done the proper way. If it's going to be sanitized then they don't need me to do it. They could find somebody else to do that."- more metal news

|Lost Johnny Cash Track In New Documentary|
The film Johnny Cash's America is poignantly placed in the context of today's
political climate and this oration "I Am The Nation" reminds us what our country stands for at a time when Americans seem more divided than ever.
Johnny Cash's America examines how Johnny became the most authentic celebrity voice our country had. He embraced all of America's diversity without prejudice or partisanship and he had so much clout with the American people that every President in office during his lifetime courted Johnny Cash. Both the right and the left claimed him, although he remained non partisan. He was championed by teenage punks, their parents, and their grandparents. He was embraced by soldiers and anarchists, by conservatives and liberals, yuppies and rednecks. When times demanded change, he was not afraid to change with them. When times were good, he sang in celebration.
Santana, 61, told Rolling Stone magazine he would eventually like to start a church in Maui, Hawaii.
But despite his continued musical success, Santana said he wanted to move on and explore his other skills. "I'm not sick of what I do, but I find that God gave me the gift of communication even without my guitar and with the ability to get people unstuck with certain sections of the Bible having to do with guilt, shame, judgment and fear," he said.
|Bon Jovi Go Plastic|
Our friends at SleazeRoxx posted a news story about this card which looks rather like an advertisement but did contain a little news: If you apply now you can get a Bon Jovi long sleeve t-shirt (size S - XXL available) and a Bon Jovi mesh baseball hat after qualifying transaction(s). No details on what those purchases might be. But we did find that the APRs will range between 9.99% and 19.99%.
Also the issuing bank is Bank of America and strangely unlike regular BOA cards (at least here at anti) they have no cap on the balance transfer fees so you get to help the working class hero Jon Bon Jovi buy his next sports team that much faster! So toss out your Crapitol One card and get this one, it will go great next to your KISS Visa! So what are you waiting for?- You know you want it!
