When Do Kids Start Learning to Play the Guitar?

Many people who take up wanting to learn to play guitar often start their lessons wondering how long it will take them to become reasonably good at it. It's hard to give a time limit when it comes to learning a musical instrument because it really depends what level you want to get to. This is the same no matter what instrument or any other type of skill you want to learn to master.

Wes Bentley Has Been Cast As Seneca Crane In The Hunger Games

Last week it was reported that Woody Harrelson was up for the role of Head Gamemaster Seneca Crane in the upcoming big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games. Today we learn that Harrelson did NOT get the Seneca Crane role because Deadline reports that actor Wes Bentley (American Beauty) has nabbed the role of Seneca. [...]

Um, ouch. A new report going around this week makes the claim that Guy Ritchie, ex-husband of Madonna, underwent a circumcision to have the foreskin removed from his penis so that he could be in compliance with Maddy‘s Kabbalah beliefs. Now, baby boys get circumcised all the time … but apparently, Ritchie was among the British men who was not snipped as a child. If true, it really sounds like Guy truly loved his wife a lot … enough to get part of his penis cut off.

There are many things a man would do for the woman he loves but not every man would consider losing part of his manhood. But Guy Ritchie is said to have agreed to say sayonara to his foreskin to please his then-wife Madonna. It has been claimed that [Ritchie] … was circumcised to adhere to the Material Girl’s Kabbalah beliefs. Karen Berg, a spiritual adviser to Madonna, is reported to have said that Ritchie underwent the surgeon’s knife to please his then-wife, according to New York magazine. The mother-of-two who co-founded the modern Kabbalah Centre in L.A. is reported to have said that Madonna: ‘keeps a kosher home, she observes Shabbat, she circumcised her son and had her [ex-] husband circumcised’ Madonna, who was raised Roman Catholic is said to have heard about Kabbalah for the first time at a dinner party in Los Angeles while pregnant with her daughter Lourdes. And in an article published in Israeli’s biggest daily newspaper, Yediot Ahronot in 2009, the star described being introduced to Kabbalah at a time when she ‘something was missing in my life’.

UGH! Madonna may have found something that was “missing” in her life but Guy‘s conversion to Kabbalah resulted in him losing something … very important. What’s even worse is that Guy got his penis snipped for Madonna and she STILL divorced him. It really sounds like Guy truly got the short end of the stick … quite literally. Poor thing :(

Electric Slide

I have picked out, in my opinion, the 5 Best Techno Songs from 1995 to 1999. I enjoy a wide variety of electronic music, so some of these picks might be better classified as Rave, Electronic Dance, Trance, Eurodance, Electronica or maybe even House. Genres are getting a little too specific anyway, and there are way too many different classifications. So, if the song was at least partly synthetic, and had a good enough beat to dance to it, then it made my list. Techno songs usually have several different mixes of the same song, so if there is a specific version that I like it will be noted after the song title.

Simon Cowell To Re Launch Top Of The Pops?

He hasn't even launched the American X Factor yet, and he's already thinking of what's to come after that!
Simon Cowell is reportedly planning to revamp the iconic BBC music show, Top of the Pops, which was canceled in 2006, but this time, he wants to expand it past just the UK!
He explains:
"It's not cost effective [...]

Tattoo Given In School

… And the art teacher watched as the fellow student inked the 16-year-old and two other kids.


That's pretty atrocious, to have someone who is in an authority position completely ignore the dangers that this poses. And it DID have dangers, it turns out:

Lovella Deloatch let her daughter Timisha get her grandmother's initials professionally tattooed on her arm and the words "beautiful nightmare" on her lower back.

That was before they learned Timisha is a type 1 diabetic.

"It could get infected easily, she could get gangrene easily. It wouldn't heal, it could still be bleeding and I wouldn't know because it was on the inside, she could lose a limb, anything. She might have made a bad judgement call for herself, but she's 16, the adult was supposed to have stepped in and said no."

We just don't know how this makes sense to someone who was hired to teach these kids. It's such a stupid idea. Seriously. Even the most reckless person could see it!

An investigation is under way, of course, and we'd definitely like to see something done about this!

The Lennon Inspired Paul McCartney Lyrics

To learn the guitar, one must know its roots and origin. Guitar history dictates that this piece of musical instrument was developed in the 12th century. Before, it was simply described as any instrument that was plucked or strummed, characterized by a long fretted neck with a flat soundboard. All guitars of those times were made of wood and did not have a universal form.

The Beatles Album Covers Their Three Most Iconic

Released in 1987, the album 'James Taylor Classic Songs' has been an entry point for many people discovering James' music for the first time. It is a wonderful collection of his material, up to that point in his career, and its place in my CD library is still near the top amongst a select few that I categorise as 'most listened to'.

Confused by Guitar Effects: Clean/Boost, Compressor, Distortion, Overdrive, Fuzz?

Throughout his career, Elvis Costello has to his credit explored many different genres of music, from the spiky guitar pop of his early albums, to the country and western projects of the early 80s and mid 90s, to his experiments with The Brodsky Quartet and writing collaborations with the likes of Allen Toussaint and Paul McCartney. However, it is on the song Shipbuilding that Costello seems to find a lyric that combines a righteous anger with a level of compassion and sensitivity perhaps not normally associated with his songwriting.

Taylor Swift How to Get Great Tickets Closer to Taylor

12:30pm, Tuesday March 15th. I lay in bed with a nasty fever as I receive a call from the Deftones publicist letting me know Chino would be available for an interview at 3:30 that day. I knew I had an upcoming interview with him, but no idea it would be that soon, so needless to say, I was not completely prepared. Luckily, I, along with some close friends (who also love the Deftones) were able to come up with a quick interview in the short time we had! My gratitude goes out to them as well as Chino Moreno for taking the time to do the interview!

The 5 Best Techno Songs From 1990 to 1995

The rockabilly scene, just like pretty much any other scene I can think of, has its purists. And just as with all purists, rockabilly's version can be a little hard to take sometimes. After all, what does it mean to be a rockabilly purist? How can anyone identify what is pure rockabilly and what is not? In my view, you can't. Rockabilly has too many forms of purity to narrow it down quite that easily!

How to Do Vampire Makeup for Women

Making art is difficult. Often the work in our minds seems more real than the work we have actually done. So, the questions are: How does art get done? Why, often, does it not get done? And, what is the nature of the difficulties that stop so many who start? In this series of articles, I will be sharing insights and activities to enhance your creativity.

Supernatural Mommy Dearest Recap

Supernatural’s latest episode entitled ‘Mommy Dearest’ aired tonight. Get the recap here and tell us – what’s up with Castiel?! Was that a shocker or what? Details below the fold. It’s hard to believe that Cas would be the next in line to go dark side, but it’s true. Sam, Dean and Bobby have all been touched by evil at one time or another, I just didn’t think Castiel would be on the same wavelength as Crowley, who we thought was dead after Cas supposedly salted and burned his bones. One things for sure, the war in Heaven has to be pretty bad if he’s teaming up with the guy who sold his soul for three more inches in his former life. Leaving clues here and there throughout the episode, it wasn’t until the very end that we really get confirmation of Cas’ hidden agenda. After making comments about a Wayward child, Eve’s rant about collections of souls, as well as Cas’ comments about the greater purpose, and Dean dead set against working with demons and monsters, you only hope that the arrows pointing to Cas where smoke and mirrors. But that’s not so. When Mommy Dearest first kicked off [...]

Trey Songz Passion, Pain and Pleasure Album Review

Luthiers are the artisans that take pride in building and preparing guitars. They do not only build guitars but also work on violas, cellos, luters, double basses, violins, and mandolins. These days most modern day luthiers specialize in guitars to make their living. Typical wood used in guitar construction are rosewood, mahogany or maple.It is an art form to build a quality guitar because the tone of the guitar is completely dependent on the quality of the wood, shape and construction methods used by the luthier.

How To Find Free Rap Music

If you are a practical user who would want to make use of his time wisely, then one thing that can bug you when you are using your computer is when you find out that your iTunes library have numerous duplicate tracks. This does not necessarily mean that you have many copies of this certain track; let's say "A Little Help From my Friends" by the Beatles. Your iTunes might display different tracks but it originates from one file only.

Tickets for Tweens

Learning guitar requires lots of patience and discipline. These are qualities that you should cultivate within yourself. Don't let the feeling of slow progress get to you. Provided you are putting in consecutive practice days, the big improvement is definitely there. Even if you can only squeeze in only twenty practice minutes a day, do that and don't stop to be pessimistic. You see learning guitar is like learning a language. The difference between the fluent French speaking person and the incoherent one is the fact that one speaks the language more often that the other. Needless to say, the same applies for guitar, those who play great guitar practice daily while the average guitarist is inconsistent and erratic when it comes to practice.

Late yesterday afternoon I started feeling … under the weather (I don’t dare use the “s” word) and it turns out that I continued to feel worse and worse as the night progressed. Because I have 3 nights of Prince concerts ahead of me, I wanted to make sure that I got as much rest as possible so that I could start feeling better. Emma, Josh and his cousin Steve came over to hang out for a bit … but all I could do is pop some meds and go to sleep.

As I was waiting for my medicine to kick in, I busted out my concert ticket album and box of concert memorabilia to reminisce about the amazing Prince shows I’ve seen over the years. I got one of Prince‘s picks at his concert at the Roosevelt Hotel back in 2007 and I’ve been collecting Prince tambourines since the mid-90s. I am happy to report that I’m feeling a bit better today so I will — hopefully — be in great shape for the concert tonight. I’ll need all my strength so I can bang the Hell out of my tambourine at the show tonight.

It’s gonna be a long night for me … after the Prince concert, I’m **hoping** to stay awake for the Royal Wedding. I’m gonna do my best to bear witness but … we’ll see. Happy Thursday, y’all!!

Before it was Britney Spears vs. Christina Aguilera, it was Tiffany vs. Debbie Gibson. Back in the late 80′s, Tiffany and Debbie battled it out for the hearts, minds and souls of pop fans as the dueling teen pop stars competed for pop supremacy. This Summer, after All This Time of wasted Electric Youth, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson will lay down their arms and perform TOGETHER for the first time ever!

Live Nation is pleased to present Debbie Gibson and Tiffany, together for the very first time, at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on July 29 at 8 pm. Tickets are $69.50, $39.50 and $29.50 and go on sale this Friday, April 22 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available at, charge by phone at 800-745-3000 or at the Westbury box office (Box Office opens at Noon). Event, date and time are subject to change. Tickets are subject to applicable service charges. For membership information, visit

Merrick’s Debbie Gibson rose to fame while still in high school. Her debut single, “Only In My Dreams” was released in the summer of 1987 and was followed in the fall by “Shake Your Love.” Out of the Blue her debut album was released that fall and by the spring of 1988, the title track had climbed to number three on the charts. With the release of her fourth single, “Foolish Beat,” Debbie Gibson became the youngest artist to write, produce and perform a #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. ”Lost in Your Eyes,” the first single from her sophomore effort, Electric Youth became her biggest hit, staying at number one for three weeks. In addition to her recording career, Debbie Gibson has starred on Broadway in “Les Miserables” and “Beauty and the Beast.” She starred in London in the West End production of “Grease” and toured nationally in “Grease,” “Funny Girl,” and appeared at the Paper Mill Playhouse in “Gypsy.” More recently she was seen in her second SyFy film “Mega Python vs. Gatorid” with Tiffany as her co-star.

TIFFANY is back! …to her roots. The dynamic voice of the 80s has returned to where it all started for her, country music and the Nashville music scene. Now a critically praised songwriter, Tiffany is set to capture your hearts again…with her new album of country/rock tunes! Tiffany began her career at the age of 13 when she signed her first recording contract with MCA. The self-titled debut album was released in 1987 and eventually went quadruple platinum. The innovative “Mall Tour” that followed proved to be the signature for Tiffany’s early career and was very effective in targeting her core audience of young teens making Tiffany the youngest female artist to debut at number one on the Billboard charts. Tiffany produced three top ten hits, two of which were national and international #1 pop singles “Could’ve Been” and the celebrated “I Think We’re Alone Now.” The soon-to-be teen pop phenomenon, New Kids on the Block, got their big break as the opening act for her world tour. Tiffany released her second album, Hold An Old Friend’s Hand, which went double platinum and featured the top ten hit “All This Time.”

I would just DIE to see these two perform together. It’s unclear if this show is a one-off performance or if they are planning to hit the road together but if New Kids on the Block can go on tour with Backstreet Boys, then I don’t see why Tiffany and Debbie can’t do the same. In about 30 years, I full expect Britney and Xtina to do this very same thing … but for now, I’d totally settle for Tiff and Deb :D

Britney Spears‘s young sons did a big of Easter egg hunting here in SoCal yesterday with their nanny and from the looks of the photos, it would seem that they had a great time. Sean Preston and Jayden James attended the Eggstravaganza event at Grape Arbor Park in Calabasas, CA on Saturday to get into the Easter spirit. Britney did not attend with them, presumably so that the kids could play without her drawing attention to their attendance.

My guess is that the boys got to spend yesterday with their mom … but got to play with other kids at the Easter egg hunt event at the park on Saturday. The boys got to play in the petting zoo and then were able to collect Easter eggs, candy, toys, etc. during the main event. So cute, right? These are fun photos … it looks like Britney‘s little chicks really did have themselves a great Easter weekend ;)

Movie Review: Water For Elephants

For months I’ve been talking about the big screen adaptation of the novel Water for Elephants and this weekend the film finally opened in theaters. To be honest, despite the amount of time I spent blogging about the production and promotion of the film, I wasn’t really convinced that I would love the final product. [...]

Yesterday was pretty much a travel day for David and me so it wasn’t really all that exciting. After a quick Easter Egg hunt in the front yard of David’s parent’s home, we had to get our butts to the airport for our flight back to LA. Because we did have one stop on our journey, we couldn’t get home as quickly as we would’ve liked … but our layover in Cincinnati, OH did afford us a very nice Easter brunch surprise.

We found an Outback Steakhouse in the airport in Cincinnati and I was able to stuff my fave partake of a delicious plate of Aussie Cheese Fries (pronounced Aussie Chayze Froys) midway thru our journey home. Trust me … it helped make the day go by so much faster :)

We did get home early enough in the day here in LA so that we could go out for a bit … we ended up seeing a movie at the ArcLight (review forthcoming). As much fun as we had in NYC and CT all week long, nothing beats being home, sweet, home here in SoCal :)
