Alt-J is Sold Out, But You Can Still See Them

Alt-J is SOLD OUT for Monday night at The Complex, but all hope is not lost if you didn't bother getting your tickets. X96 will be featuring another LoungeX before their show, but due to the intimate nature of the performance space is very limited.

The only way to gain access is to win an invitation and make sure you can sneak out of work to attend. You can enter to win an invitation below. In case you weren't aware this tour is selling out everywhere and with a lot of critical acclaim over their sophomore album, "This Is All Yours", Alt-J is proving to be one of the hottest bands on the planet. NME (music mag from their home country) gave the album 4 out of 5 stars. stating, "Downbeat and often acoustic-led, the plan is to infuse their icy diodes with a more natural-sounding human warmth." You can read the entire review here.  

This will be a LoungeX to remember, so get signed up and tell your friends to sign up and take you if they win. Scroll down to enter..

Red Bull Owes You Red Bull Corey O'Brien |

Red Bull Owes You Red Bull

And no wings were given that day.

Apparently the performance enhancing properties of Red Bull have come into question within our justice system. While Red Bull has maintained their advertising has been truthful they want to make the litigation go away. It's like when your mom won't shut up about eating your peas and you sue her over the definition of peas....maybe.

Either way, Red Bull have agreed to give those who have purchased Red Bull between 2002 and October 3rd of this year either $10 in cash or $15 in Red Bull. If you felt, after years of drinking Red Bull, you have not been given wings you should click here and file your claim. There are deadlines though, so if you are feeling lazy just drink a Red Bull then get it filled out and filed.

Be aware it could take a while as there is another hearing scheduled in May of 2015 to approve the settlement. If approved it could take as long as 149 days to get that sweet cash or sweet liquid.

Let's wait together over a Red Bull. Red Bull. Red Bull. Red Bull.

Richie T. interviews Angela Cartwright

Richie T. interviews Angela Cartwright known as Brigitta Von Trapp in The Sound of Music. Angela talks about her book and love of art and photography. 

LISTEN BELOW

Richie T.: There's this whole debate old-timey photography with film.. and now with everything digital where do you weigh in in all that?

Angela Cartwright: There is something about the quality of film..uh photography. I love black and white..uh film photography. It is just so unique and has such a different quality about it. I have to admit I am kind of on the bandwagon with digital too. It is instant gratification.

Richie:.. How does the book come together?

Angela Cartwright: There is no photoshop at all in the book. It is all just how they were. You know, we went through thousands of negatives and two sheets and with our little white gloves on in the archives of the bowels of Twentieth Centruy Fox, we had kinf of unlimited access to the archives which is kind of unheard of. It was really quite an adventure, I was just so glad that Twentieth saw the value in it. 

Styling the Stars: Lost Treasures from the Twentieth Century Fox Archive is out in stores!

Read A Book, Get Pizza...Book-It's Back Corey O'Brien |

Read A Book, Get Pizza...Book-It's Back

Remember when all you wanted to read was Choose Your Own Adventure books and eat Pop-Tarts and Bagle Bites all the live-long day? Me too. Those were good days. I didn't know about thing like taxes, Rush Limbaugh and genocide. Things were good. I also enjoyed things like professional wrestling and playing Metroid. 

Then, one day my third grade teacher played a mean trick on a young psyche. She told me I could have a pizza if I read "Dear Mr. Henshaw." I have blocked this out of my mind to the point where I can't even recall what the book was about. According to Amazon.com the book goes down like this, "After his parents separate, Leigh Botts moves to a new town with his mother. Struggling to make friends and deal with his anger toward his absent father, Leigh loses himself in a class assignment in which he must write to his favorite author. When Mr. Henshaw responds, the two form an unexpected friendship that will change Leigh's life forever." I am quite surprised I didn't end up hate reading and pizza.

I still love pizza. Since then I've been introduced to so many great authors and stories. Let's get nostalgic. Pizza Hut has fired up their "Book-It" promotion, not for a new generation, but for the same generation. Read a book and get pizza. The good news is we are now adults, so there's no third grade teacher telling you to read sentimental crap. Pick up a copy of "American Psycho" by Ellis, "Invisible Man" by Ellison or Self-Reliance by Emerson. 

If you did it then, you can do it now. Grab up a book, click here and live up to your potential in literature and pizza.

Watch this video if you doubt me. I can't recall if I was a Book-It Kid or a latch-key kid first. I am proud of both.
