The Dead Weather – “Buzzkill(er)”

Two new Dead Weather tracks will be available for digital download on Nov. 4 via Jack White’s Third Man Records, but you can listen to one of them, “Buzzkill(er),” right now. The Nashville-based supergroup is currently working on a new record that will be out sometime in 2015.

Paging Mr. Herman…Pee-Wee’s Back!

Mr. Herman, you have a telephone call at the front desk. And it’s Judd Fucking Apatow!

Though we’re still about a week away from a “huge announcement,” actor Paul Reubens announced last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that a third “Pee-Wee Herman” movie is officially in the works.

“Judd Appatow is producing it still–this was all leaked three years ago,” he said. “We hired a director…and we’re going to start in February.”

In other Pee-wee news, Shout Factory just released a Pee-wee’s Playhouse box set. All 45 episodes (plus a Christmas special) have been digitally remastered and are now available for the first time ever in full HD.

Reubens recently opened up about the Playhouse reissue in an interview with Rolling Stone.

What a lot of people don’t realize is, the show was shot on film. But it’s never been seen on film — we’d shoot it and immediately transfer it to tape, then we’d edit it on tape and add the effects in on tape. The whole thing is then put on a “broadcast tape,” for airing. You lose information and clarity the more you dupe, so in some cases, we’re talking six generations of loss. We’ve cleaned all that up. I’ve spent over a year in a lab helping the folks putting this out with color corrections, helping them find the right source material for some of the effects — many of which they recreated from scratch for the Blu-rays. The amount of work that went into this was huge.

New Music: Marilyn Manson – “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge”

Marilyn Manson quietly released “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge,” the first song off his forthcoming record, over the weekend. I often forget how talented this dude guy is and how much I’ve dug his music throughout the years. Unsurprisingly, “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge” is pretty dope (show).

Manson will release his 10th studio record in 2015. “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge” is available as a free download over at marilynmanson.com.

My Morning Jacket Cover Woodie Guthrie

My Morning Jacket’s cover of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” makes me want to punch my MacBook Pro in the nuts, drop $100 on this North Face Venture Jacket and hike the Appalachian Trail.

But tough shit, daydream. This guy’s out of vacation days and stuck on a miserable greige cube farm pushing papers and dancing the Corporate America shuffle.

Go download the group’s twangy take on “This Land is Your Land.” According to Rolling Stone, Jim James and the boys are donating 100% of their artist royalty to benefit the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC), which helps young folks and veterans find jobs protecting our country’s outdoor areas.

“A lot of kids that were born with the Internet and a phone in their hand all the time, it’s like the Internet is bigger than what it should be,” James says. “I love the thought of young people getting these jobs and taking pride in the land and hopefully being leaders to other young people. There’s got to be people who stand up when they want to put a pipeline through a park, or they want to blow it to pieces to take coal out of the ground, or frack it to get gas out of it. If we don’t fight and watch, these things can be stolen from us very easily and very quickly. There’s been so much beautiful land that’s been just destroyed forever.”

The North Face is also donating up to $250,000 for 21CSC and premiering the below ad during Sunday Night Football on Nov. 9.

Rachel Goodrich & The Grrrls – “MonstA Mash” (Video)

Halloween blows–I’ve never been a fan. But Halloween-y music, on the other hand, is the tits. Here’s a spooky, fuzzy wuzzy video from Miami-bred, California-based Rachel Goodrich and her band, The Grrrls, for “MonstA Mash.”

And if you’re feeling nostalgic, here’s my favorite Rachel Goodrich video of all time.
