Porcupine Tree / Larry David & Woody Allen

13th Jun 09 (Sat) 2 comments

UK progrockers Porcupine Tree have a new album coming out in September, and it now has a name: The Incident.  It’s out September 21st on Roadrunner Records in the United States.  It’ll be a double-album: first CD being the (cough) 55-minute title track.  The 2nd CD being an EP-lengthed featuring these four songs: “Flicker,” “Bonnie The Cat,” “Black Dahlia,” and “Remember Me Lover.”

My fandom of Steven Wilson’s songwriting (examples: Stupid Dream & Lightbulb Sun) will probably lead me to gravitate to the 2nd CD, but we shall see.  Their counterpart in the prog world, Dream Theater, can’t write their way out of a wet paper bag (when it comes to a “song”)… so at least Steven tends to do that every once in a while…

As previously reported, Porcupine Tree hits the road with King’s X and That1Guy this fall (two favorite artists of mine).  I’ll be at the That1Guy-opened show in Portland, OR.

Larry David is a busy man.  As previously reported, the 7th season of Curb Your Enthusiasm is underway (and will host all major members of the Seinfeld cast).  Larry’s feature movie from writer/director Woody Allen is hitting the streets this June/July.  Here’s a trailer for Whatever Works:

The Strike Strikes Back.

So, I wholly think that this Writer’s Guild strike is a just one. They (the writers) have been getting screwed by the big wigs for royalties for their written material on internet and other distribution, while these big wigs are getting advertising money from said internet and other distribution.

Anyway, Speechless Hollywood has some clever videos put together. Here are my favorites:

Clever… yet I’d rather the various production companies, the AMPTP and the WGA settle this damn strike.
