HBO's Vinyl

Back in February came word that HBO had decided to give Vinyl, the ’70s music business drama from Terence Winter, Mick Jagger, Rich Cohen, and Martin Scorsese, a season two. This is something HBO does often to give shows a fair chance to find their audience.

But some things have happened since the decision was made to greenlight a second season, and now HBO has announced that they have decided not to move forward with a new season of Vinyl after all.

Mick Jagger

This year, The Rolling Stones set a milestone as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. Now, another milestone gets set as it’s charismatic front man Mick Jagger celebrates his 70th birthday today.

Forty years ago, if you asked anyone, probably the band included, if the Stones, let alone Jagger, would still be performing in 2013, most people would have shook their collective heads in disbelief. In 1973, to imagine having not only that staying power, but the wherewithal and organic propensity to even WANT to continue playing rock and roll in what seems like an unofficial young man’s game, would have been scoffed at. But it’s precisely and exactly that which has happened, and from the looks of the success of the tour that just recently had a stint at London’s famed Hyde Park, in front of 65,000 plus adoring fans, there seems to be no sign of letting up.

Alejandro Jodorowsky and ‘Dune’: The Story Of The Greatest Sci-Fi Film Never Made

BAADASSSSS!   |

Jodorowsky's Dune

The long and storied history of cinema is one to be studied, admired, and treasured for the many timeless classic feature films it has brought to our astonished eyes. But beneath that history lies buried a mass grave of unrealized films that were either killed at the treatment or script stage or were permitted to proceed in front of the cameras before being shut down and virtually forgotten about for the remainder of time infinite. In an alternate universe many of those unmade movies completed the journey from random idea to the new release section of your neighborhood Target and irrevocably changed the face of cinema forever.

This is the story of one of those great unmades. This is the story of Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s Dune.

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when my fear is gone I will turn and face fear’s path, and only I will remain.”

Muscle Shoals: Fame Studios

Muscle Shoals
Director: Greg Camalier
Cast: Aretha Franklin, Mick Jagger, Clarence Carter, John Paul White, Gregg Allman, Keith Richards, Steve Winwood, Jimmy Cliff, Rick Hall

Located alongside the Tennessee River, Muscle Shoals, Alabama changed the world as the birthplace for some of America’s most creative, exciting, and soulful music.

Directed by Greg Camalier, Muscle Shoals documents the history of the Muscle Shoals music scene and the players involved in creating that signature sound – including FAME Studios founder and legendary producer Rick Hall and The Swampers, the Muscle Shoals rhythm section that played with the likes of Rod Stewart, Boz Scaggs, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Percy Sledge, Gregg Allman, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Alicia Keys, Bono, and others bear witness to Muscle Shoals’ magnetism, mystery, and why it remains influential as a hot-spot for rhythm and blues.

Kristen Wiig's Musical Farewell On SNL

Last night’s Saturday Night Live apparently marked Kristen Wiig‘s final episode as a regular cast member, and with a little help from host Mick Jagger, the comedian got an emotional, musical send-off from her fellow cast members and SNL producer Lorne Michaels.

The last skit of the episode showed the Rolling Stones frontman speaking at a high school graduation, where he calls up Wiig for a special farewell, congratulating her after “7 years.” As the Stones tune “She’s A Rainbow” begins to play, Wiig takes off her cap and gown, and her cast members one-by-one take the stage to dance with her. With the help of one of the musical guests, Arcade Fire, the cast and guests all sing “Ruby Tuesday,” with Wiig teary-eyed as people like former cast member Amy Poehler and her Bridesmaids co-star Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm came on stage.

You can watch the farewell here below.
