Tarantino vs. Star Wars Corey O'Brien |

Tarantino vs. Star Wars

Bobby Burns is a clever guy.  He turned "Frozen" into a nightmare and has now filtered "Star Wars" through his Tarantino obsessed mind.  You get all the tropes, fonts and Sam Jackson, but in a galaxy far enough away. Watch this and you may want to turn any of your favorite films into an ultra-violent western.  It's what all movies in the future are built on.  Then again, you could just pick up a Joseph Campbell book and dress up any basic narrative to fit your flavor.  Check out the clip.

Deadmau5 Announces New Album Corey O'Brien |

Deadmau5 Announces New Album

The Mau5'd one has announced a new album.  Last year he called off his engagement to Kat Von D. Perhaps this will be a breakup album.  2014 seems like a great year to release break-up albums (looking at you, Coldplay). When it comes to mathematically nuanced album titles Deadmau5 is your guy.  This new album will be called "While(1<2)."  That has heartbreak written all over it, no?\

Talking about the album Deadmau5 said, "It's a good mix of shit I want to do versus shit people want to hear or what they would expect. It's a good balance. It's not like, 'Oh, it's such a departure. He's doing smooth jazz." This according to NME.

Anyway, the album will drop on June 17th in digital form with the physical version available a week later. Check out the preview below and share your thoughts.

Dirty Heads Interview with Richie T

 

Listen Here

 

From: Hunington Beach, CA

 

Favorite Snack

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 Announce Tour Dates: Salt Lake's In! Corey O'Brien |

The Black Keys Announce Tour Dates: Salt Lake's In!

(Photo by Danny Clinch used with permission from Nonesuch Records)

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:
