Briefs, bitches

  • MTV News' Ozzfest kickoff report has one of the best, most raw descriptions of a heavy metal show I've ever seen. Chris Harris, MTV News' resident metal expert, is really repping for all things heavy at MTV, of all places. This is the same place that fired Ian Robinson.


  • Lil' Wayne and Juelz Santana will have the most playfully rhymed rap release ever, whether they release their upcoming project as a mixtape or a proper LP.


  • Somehow, Judas Priest is going to release a record that is ambitious, metal and gay. In all seriousness, I've thought about a heavy-metal musical for a long, long time, and that if anyone would do it, it would be Rob Halford. Sure enough, the gay did it. God bless heavy metal. (Note to MTV News: Bad call on that Halford picture)


  • "A Scanner Darkly" is finally coming out this week. It's about damn time. Richard Linklater is such a slacker. He's only releasing two films this year. Check out this English-as-a-second-language IMDb user comment on the movie. I'm sure his other movie, "Fast Food Nation," will be mostly "indie movie," liberal bullshit that will preach to the choir, but "A Scanner Darkly" (another no-doubt fine Phillip K. Dick adaptation) should at least be exciting. It better be, he turned down a Harry Potter movie to do the movie.
