I never even thought of this until Rolling Stone brought it up, but Dave Grohl could be nominated for an Oscar for the film Sound City. How this never occured to me, I really don't know. Next up: win an Emmy and a Tony. It must be done. There is no stopping you, Grohl.
He should win an Oscar just for pulling this off and making me all swoony.
Not just because of Nirvana or Hall and Oates (seriously, I guffawed about that...but good for them). No, no...because KISS is finally going to be inducted.
Look, I am more than willing to say that I am not a huge fan of KISS. Gene alone has tainted my view of the band. However, to poo poo their impact on the music world is a stupid thing to do. IT'S ABOUT TIME. Read more about the inductees for the upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame HERE. Also, see the thing that possibly contributed to those years of not getting inducted.
Is it too show-offy or dumb to be excited to share this with you? Probably. I rarely get time off, so let me have this moment of looking terrible.
I got to spend my weekend loving Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. I should not even have to explain how much I peed myself.
This was weird for me. 1) My love for John Goodman is ridiculous. 2) Stallone and De Niro are in an upcoming movie that I choose to not acknowledge. I am ok with them all together in this, though.
Excuse me while I sit down and rest. The very notion of annual nominations for the Grammys exhausts me. Not everything is terrible, but...*sigh*

"An older Michael Cera works in the desert with rejects from Mystery Science Theatre 3000" is how this video was thought up.
Keep your wrath away from me.
I get what they're saying, though...but it's bound to piss people off. Go check out the article HERE.
The latest video from Lorde, by the way, can be seen down below:
Which is understandable, what with the constant touring and three albums they've put out in the past 14 months. Go to bed, guys. Also, Bille Joe Armstrong has been busy since pulling himself out of the EEEEK! that happened at last year's IHeartRadio Festival, so...read more about what he's been up to HERE.
Meanwhile, I am gladly playing this on the 90s at Noon today!
Looks like Metallica won't be doing their annual festival next year. It's not like the band hasn't been busy or anything with a movie, anniversary of their first album, playing Yankee Stadium, signing to be part of Giants Day, etc.
