Mo fun
So, lotsa fellas at my work have been growing mo's for movember, and I've been in on the fun. We had a work party on Wednesday night for Movember (I won best Motown Mo prize, but the overall winner of Movember in our office was dressed as the builder from the Village People). Anyways, here's the evidence.

If you feel like sponsoring me (hey, this photo made you laugh, that's gotta be worth at least a fiver) then go here and enter my rego number 104231. Much appreciated.
Check the video of Steve Jones and John Lydon on their recording for video game Guitar Hero III. Why would they re-record one of their old songs? Jones says it's cos their record company lost their masters. Bonus points - Lydon loses his noodle at a UK press conference for the game launch, classic - Link.

Jeremy Piven goes metal
Funniest video I've seen in ages, language is NSFW tho. Need ya headphones on for it. The Piv gets spotted at an LA nightclub by silly metal band, who get him onstage to play drums for them. Hat tip to LAist.

The joys of the music biz, part 480
Sighted in Alan McGee's column on the Guardian "Dub be good to me: Curious about dub reggae but don't know where to start? Here's five classic albums to get the riddims started."

One of the albums listed is by dub maestro Scientist, called 'Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires'.

"... Rockstar Games licensed the Vampire album for their Grand Theft Auto game, but Scientist received no compensation from the deal and sued the company.

He ultimately lost because he engineered the album but didn't produce it, so isn't considered the owner of his work - setting a dangerous precedent in the world of dub, where engineering is the key to creation. Rockstar Games successfully argued that with the extra profile its game gave the album, Scientist had already been compensated."
