Yet Again, Tom Morello Denies Rage Against the Machine Album Rumours
Clearly Tom Morello doesn’t watch the news. Lance Armstrong was accused of using performance enhancing drugs for all of his Tour de France victories, yet he denied it and sued people. He finally admitted it was all a lie and he was in denial. A totally incomparable situation is Tom Morello’s Rage Against the Machine album rumours. The band have denied them repeatedly, but we all know you’re testing something out in the studio. Sure, you’re afraid the magic isn’t there, so you don’t want people to know you’re in the studio. But let us know already. (Note: I’m probably way off in my theory)
After Tuesday’s new album rumours due to a throwaway comment, guitarist Tom Morello has yet again denied that a new album is in the works. In a Q & A on Twitter, a fan asked “ok spill the beans, new rage album or not? Pleeeeeeeease #resortedtobeggingnow.” Morello responded “‘fraid not. Appreciate the enthusiasm but ‘no new rage album’ is kinda like ‘not seeing a unicorn’. It’s not exactly NEWS.”

Grammy Rules – Nipples: Yes for Men, No for Women
A leaked document has revealed some interesting stipulations at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards. The memo is from CBS, who produced the infamous 2004 Super Bowl, where ‘wardrobe malfunction’ became part of our lexicon. The document says that men can show their nipples, while women cannot (via Gigwise). I have the opposite rules at my parties.
Some quotes from the memo: “CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe. Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic.
Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples.”
It also notes that shirts with foreign languages on them need to be reviewed. What’s this about no side or bottom boob curves?! Worst.Event.Ever!
