    10 Songs Still Missing From Spotify & What You Can Listen to Instead

    As recently mentioned, I'm a pretty big fan of Spotify. Speaking as someone who never got over getting burned by my purchase of Stroke 9's Nasty Little Thoughts I'm a big fan of having the chance to listen to a record all the way through before making a purchase.

    Turning 10, American Idol Struggles to Make New Stars -- But Mostly Misses

    It's hard to imagine it now, just a shade less than a decade later, but at one time American Idol was able to crank out star after star in a succession of seasons. Most people couldn't name at least one of the last five winners of Fox's cash-cow pop show, even as ratings have remained healthy (if no ... More >>

    Idol Beat: He-Man Woman Hater's Club

    ​55 million. That's how many votes were cast to determine which two unfortunates would be given the boot last night on American Idol. To those who like to get up in arms about the "outrage" that the show draws such massive numbers from an otherwise apathetic population, I'd remind you the show ... More >>

    Pop Rocks: Betty White Needs A Break

    ​The Saturday Night Live episode hosted by Betty White aired last weekend, thanks to the efforts of some 500,000 Facebook users who bravely took a break from complaining about the security of those photos they posted from the Senor Frogs wet t-shirt contest in 1988 to create a group expressly ...

    The Five Best American Spinoffs From British TV....And Win An Invention Of Lying DVD

    ​If you saw the Golden Globes -- or, more likely, if you surfed the net the next day for highlights (because Lord, those speeches were as long and pointless as the drawn-out walks to the stage) -- then you saw Ricky Gervais tear into the American version of The Office. All in good fun, of course.( ... More >>

    Creepy, Inappropriate and Otherwise Weird Christmas Albums

    ​ Christmas is 22 days away, so you still have time to put in some online orders for delivery. And, coincidentally enough, we're going to bet that whatever holiday album you've been playing for the past few years is starting to get a little stale.

    Ask Joe The Plumber

    It's been a big day for Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as "Joe the Plumber." After John McCain mentioned his name about 12,000 times in last night's debate, the media descended on the guy's house in Ohio to learn about "the common man's" thoughts.

    Variations on "Hotel California"

    Yes, it's probably one of the most overplayed songs in both the Arrow's and K-Hits' libraries, but the Eagles' "Hotel California" deserves to be. Written by Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Don Felder (who was fired from the Eagles in 2001), the title song to the band's 1976 album captures the creeping dr ... More >>

    Idol Chatter

    Seattle — what happened? I remember there was once a day not too terribly long ago when you heard no more about that rainy northwestern metropolis than any other large American city. It was a city with a decent basketball team and the perpetually mediocre Seahawks and Mariners. Maybe you knew ... More >>
