"Guardians of the Galaxy" shared a new trailer today. I love everything about this movie, especially the racoon with a gun. What I hate about this trailer and what will annoy me about the movie is the music. "Spirit in the Sky" again, really? How much money is Norman Greenbaum sucking out of the collective pool of royalty money amongst music budgets in Hollywood. Who is Mr. Greenbaum's attorney that negotiated the sale of his soul to Satan for such blanket coverage? I would like to hire that lawyer.
Here is an actual list of movies and TV shows this song has been in. Put a bag over this song and don't take it off until its spirit is actually in the sky.
If that particular music selection didn't have you sticking tree branches in your ears it's followed by Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling." Did the music supervisor for this film graduate from the University of Unoriginality with a major in boring and a minor in trite? "Hooked on a Feeling" has haunted me since its use in "Ally McBeal." Remember that stupid dancing baby?
If these two songs were house guests you would have asked them to leave years ago or resorted to blunt force trauma and a backyard burial just to get away from their grating overuse in mass culture.
We are decades past the 70s, 80s or whatever decade these songs were conceived, back when people made out to them. All they do now is make us wretch and rightly so.
Now that I've got that off my chest I will say something positive...I really can't wait to see this film. It looks original, close to the comic and it's Mavel so you know it will be slick. Enjoy the trailer below.
You can add one more must see show to your Summer list. The Offspring are coming along with Pennywise and Stiff Little Fingers to Saltair on August 26th. Killer lineup, bro!
Rumor also has it that The Offspring may be working on new music. Noodles told Tut.by that the band planned to head in the studio after they wrapped up their last tour. I guess we will have to wait and see on that front.
Of course last month was the 20th anniversary of "Smash" the album that made The Offspring pretty damn big. Pop that one in your playlist and remember what a badass this album made you feel like until you see them in August.

Duddy: My Favorite snack… Mini-Pies. I make these at home. They’re literally like thick apple pie, but really small. But it still looks exactly like an apple pie. I call them “Pieders.” Pie Sliders.
“Pieders, Where Every Day Is Your Cheap Day”
Duddy: I have bought the website and patented it [“Pieders”]. The world will know the joy of holding a pie in your hand and eating it without any silverware.
Old Rap Tapes
Duddy: It is literally like ten dudes in a garage, my dad built a soundproof room in our garage. …We would go there after parties… I had this little four-track, mini-disc recorder and a cashio keyboard. We would make the dumbest beats and everyone would have rap on the song.
Utah Reggae-Rock scene
Duddy: You[Salt Lake City], are more of a mountain town. And this more like beach music… Utah, especially, has an amazing scene for out type of music.
escpeccially, has an amazing scene for out type of music.

The Black Keys, whose new album, "Turn Blue" comes out on Tuesday (and you can listen to it early by clicking here), announced the "Turn Blue World Tour" and by gosh darn, Salt Lake made the cut. This is refreshing because The Black Keys are one of the best live bands around and because so many other bands like Nine Inch Nails and Kings of Leon have skipped us over on their recent tours (though I still light a candle they will announce SLC dates eventually).
Dan and Patrick announced their dates in a way that would make David Lynch proud. Check out the video below and get ready for turkey season with The Black Keys on November 12th at the Maverik Center. Not to mention the excellent Jake Bugg is their opener for the Salt Lake date. Tickets go on sale May 16th. That's next Thursday, so don't go and blow all you concert ticket money this weekend.
Also, catch The Black Keys on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
Here is the video for "Fever" in case you haven't gotten around to it:
