The Entertation Index: April 11

April 11, 2013

Aiken, Clay — A 57 year-old woman has been charged by a North Carolina judge after trespassing on the property of  American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken’s home. The judge called the woman a nuisance, a criminal and, if she really believes she can make Aiken love her, the least well-informed stalker in history.

Coachella — The organizers behind popular music festival Coachella have announced set times for 2013’s event, which begins tomorrow. Please note the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at 8:25 pm on Friday, Franz Ferdinand at 10:15 pm on Saturday, The Lumineers at 4:45 on Sunday. Being drunk, dirty and talking nonstop about the one DJ gig you did one time will, as usual, take place all weekend long.

Hagar, Sammy — Current Chickenfoot and one time Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar addressed his estrangement from his former Van Halen bandmates recently in an interview by saying that “I would be in that band, still, if we could get along.” Sure, Sammy. And you’d still have a license if you could drive fifty-five. I guess some things just aren’t possible.

Paisley, Brad — Country singer Brad Paisley’s new song, a collaboration with rapper LL Cool J   called “Accidental Racist” which apologizes for the South’s history, is being soundly blasted by critics across the board for its bizarre lyrics and self-importance. On one front it succeeds, however: it’s simultaneously both the worst thing to happen to both hip hop AND country music.

Park, Jurassic — With the success of Jurassic Park 3D this past weekend, New York Magazine has a story on how sound-effects engineers decided upon and created the noises made by the film’s CGI dinosaurs, including a horse in heat for the Gallimus flock which stampeded through the countryside and two tortoises having sex for the barking of the velociraptors. So see? All those noises you thought were scary weren’t scary at all. They were really just kind of skeevy, gross and icky.

imagesVoorhees, Jason –– Actor Richard Booker, the first to portray Friday the 13th’s killer Jason Voorhees in a hockey mask, has died. Well, they thought he was dead, and then he came back again. And then they thought he was dead again, but he came back at the end.
