NPR: Many will remember his wrestling.
Many will remember his roles in Cyndi Lauper’s videos.
Some will remember his part as a henchman on Miami Vice.

Captain Lou Albano professional wrestler, actor and all-around legend, has died. He was 76.

As New York’s Daily News says, Albano was “known for his wild goatee, usually tamed by a rubber band, and his half-open Hawaiian shirts … (and was) a wrestling world fixture for more than a half-century.”

Mike Watt and Brendan Mullen

Brendan Mullen died of a major stroke this week at the age of 60.  He was the founder of the legendary Hollywood Hardcore Punk club Masque in 1977.

Brendan Mullen was always very kind to me… in the old days, always a kindness and interest. When the band before the minutemen made two cassettes of a prac (only recording of them), I gave one to brendan – he was only person to get cuz the other got kept in a drawer. Ever since old days we’d have huge spiels together, lots. Intelligent man. Helpful man. Drummer man, too. He’d call me with ideas all the time… more recent was to make album… now there’s no time. Fuck. He was great cat, great cat! Big love always to him from Mike Watt. He touched many folks’ lives…

Big loss for our team – missing you! ~ Mike Watt

Murdered Model Jasmine Fiore Wanted to Sing, Too. Audio Included.

Jasmine Fiore, murdered wife of reality show star Ryan Jenkins, was an aspiring model and actress. So it’s not a big surprise that she wanted to sing, too.

Going by the name Jaz, Fiore’s vocals can be heard on, where she “sang” as part of the dance/electronica group Machines of Joy.

From M.O.J.s bio:

“Inspired by and deriving their name from the modernist visions in Ray Bradbury’s 60’s literature ‘Machineries Of Joy” and the neo-classic “Fahrenheit 451”, M.O.J were implanted and fused in Northern California in February 2005. California super-model/sassy singer “Jaz” (aka. Jasmine Fiore, and British musician-producer & electronix über-wizard mBlaze (aka. Mike Barnes) blend ethereal female vocals with melodic trance and progressive grooves aimed at both the charts & club remixes.”

By “ethereal female vocals” I think they mean “shitty auto-tuned vocals”, because people only use auto-tune to cover the fact that they can’t sing. Yes Kanye, this means you too.

Listen to part of her song Delirious here.
