Who turned out the lights?!
- The Red Hot Chili Peppers have released the sixth of several new songs that are part of a digital bombardment on their official website over the weekend. The eight-minute tune is called "In Love Dying," and it (like the others) was written and recorded while the band toured to promote their most recent studio album, I'm With You.
- The National Music Centre in Canada is planning to restore and display the mobile recording studio that The Rolling Stones used to put together their classic albums Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street. The NMC bought the studio back in 2000, but restoration plans have been on hold since then. Led Zeppelin and Bob Marley also recorded in the mobile studio.
- We gave you passes to see what turned out to be the #1 movie in the country this weekend, as Warm Bodies opened at the top with a $20 million take, followed by Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters slipping down to #2, while the Silver Linings Playbook capitalized on its awards buzz to jump up to #3. Elsewhere, Sylvester Stallone's Bullet to the Head bombed big, coming in at #6.
- Steve Rogers has found his leading lady! Captain America: The Winter Soldier will add Emily Van Camp (ABC's Revenge) to the cast as the female lead, and though the character has not yet been confirmed, it's expected that she'll play Sharon Carter, the niece of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and the Captain's love interest. The film opens April 4th, 2014.
- PS3 Skyrim players, rejoice! All of the available downloadable content for the fifth Elder Scrolls game is coming to the system throughout February, with Dragonborn being made available next Tuesday (the 12th), followed by Hearthfire the next week, and Dawnguard on the final week of the month.
- With the likely reveal of the Playstation 4 on February 20th, what is Microsoft doing to prepare? Setting up their own reveal, of course. Rumor has it that the next iteration of the XBox will be shown off later this spring, meaning that both companies will use E3 not to unveil their new systems, but instead, to display them and show off their capabilities, features, and games.
'Til Tuesday, you maniacs--ROCK!
