Smashing Pumpkins - Jimmy Chamberlin

NEW YORK - Drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has left the Smashing Pumpkins.

Chamberlin's departure is posted on the Smashing Pumpkins' Web site. The announcement didn't say why the 44-year-old Chamberlin left the group.

Chamberlin joined the Grammy-winning alternative rock band in 1988 and played on all of their albums except 1998's "Adore." The band broke up in 2000 and reunited six years later with Chamberlin and frontman Billy Corgan on board.

The announcement says Corgan, who sings and plays guitar, will "continue to write and record as Smashing Pumpkins with plans to head into the studio this spring."

The Sounds concert

I haven't been to a concert in a while and the next one scheduled is one I'm super, super excited for. The Sounds' album, Dying to Say This to You, was one of those albums I couldn't stop listening to. It was a great energy record if I need a pick-me-up whilst working. I'm expecting a pretty electric performance and am so glad to be able to see 'em. I regret not being able to see them with Shiny Toy Guns and Assassins a couple years ago in Chicago. Dang. What a lineup! Power chick singers galore. Anywho... The show is on May 9 at the Rave and while I was at first excited about seeing The Sounds on their upcoming tour with Paramore and No Doubt, I'd rather see them alone I've decided. Hopefully the crowd won't be as filled with types like radio-crazy teenage girls who just wanna be Hayley or only know Gwen's solo stuff. Recap to follow!

Phoenix + Saturday Night Live

No, not Phoenix the city... the band Phoenix! They're going to be on SNL this weekend with Seth Rogen hosting and I've gotta say... I'm jittery all over. The last album truly rocked my face for many hours on end and the single on their MySpace, dubbed 1901, has me excited. Tune in, folks. I'm not quite sure what their live show is like, but here's to hoping the music dominates.

I'm A Vader-illionaire.

The far-reaching scope of crazed fans and their endeavors to pay homage to their favorite obsession is always humorous. This guy decided to create some Star Wars currency, touting Lord Vader as the face. Too bad we can't customize our dollars like we can our credit cards!

Colbert + Nasa

This article is awesome. I happened to be channel surfing one night (a very rare occasion) and came upon The Colbert Report. Colbert was calling for the Colbert Nation to unite and hit up Nasa's site for naming a new international space station and name it... You guessed it. "Colbert". I started laughing and reached for the laptop, but couldn't find the link on his site just yet. Then I read this...

Oops: Colbert wins NASA space station name contest

WASHINGTON - NASA's online contest to name a new room at the international space station went awry. Comedian Stephen Colbert won.

The name "Colbert" beat out NASA's four suggested options in the space agency's effort to have the public help name the addition. The new room will be launched later this year.

NASA's mistake was allowing write-ins. Colbert urged viewers of his Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report" to write in his name. And they complied, with 230,539 votes. That clobbered Serenity, one of the NASA choices, by more than 40,000 votes. Nearly 1.2 million votes were cast by the time the contest ended Friday.

NASA reserves the right to choose an appropriate name. Agency spokesman John Yembrick said NASA will decide in April, but will give top vote-getters "the most consideration."

New Band :: Tinted Windows

Now if this isn't an interesting mash-up of I'm-already-in-a-huge-band-but-I-want-to-be-in-another candidates, I don't know what is! Tinted Windows is comprised of Hanson's Taylor Hanson, former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Cheap Trick's drummer Bun E. Carlos, and Fountains of Wayne's bassist Adam Schlesinger. The 2 songs on their MySpace are catchy and have piqued my interest. Listen for yourself...

Blockbuster + Tivo

I don't exactly know what came of, or what started, the news about Blockbuster's supposed bankruptcy, but it doesn't sound like they're going out too soon, or at least not without a fight. Their days have been numbered since Netflix and Redbox started dominating the video rental market. We shall see what happens to the once-behemoth Blockbuster soon enough. Death to high rental prices, I say!
