Spring Cleaning with Ryan Adams

With summer only a week away, Ryan Adams is doing some spring cleaning. The singer-songwriter (and FP hero) announced he's finished work on The Cardinals III/IV, an unreleased double album from 2006, and the Blackhole LP, recorded in 2005 and recently dubbed "Love is Hell Part 3" by Adams on his facebook page.

Adams has been quiet since he quit the Cardinals in early 2009 and married Mandy Moore months later.  As a Greek friend used to say: Life is Choices. Sure, he was publishing poetry books, writing video game reviews (sigh), and experimenting with heavy metal.  But for a guy who recorded a dozen albums  before the age of 35, all that amounts to early retirement. And when we bumped into Adams on Allen Street, we were too dumbstruck to say hi, much less press for details of his life, musical or otherwise.

No word on when these records will drop or how they compare to previous Adams recordings. For now, if you've never heard Heartbreaker, there's still time to redeem yourself before the record's 10th anniversary in September. Seriously.

  1. Like in The Vampire Diaries, happy death day trailer viewers could easily get emotional whiplash from all the turnarounds and betrayals. This whole town is in a codependent, abusive relationship with itself and you half wonder why everyone doesn't just pack up and get out of each other's face.

    Instead, people will end up bedding former enemies, who may very well end up trying to kill them again a few episodes down the road. It's entertaining but a bit exhausting to watch. watch rampage full movie online free Because the series keeps the twists coming hard and fast, you don't often get a chance to feel bored or to ponder just how ridiculous it all is.

    (A trick also employed by The Vampire Diaries.) The acting is okay for this sort of thing, with some wood-adjacent performances not spoiling the fun. The cast seems to relish chewing the scenery and especially enjoys getting all arch and Evil. watch the devils candy 2017 free online

    When a new episode rolls around, I will often completely have forgotten what happened the previous week, so the recaps at the beginning are useful. And yet, I can't help but watch. The Originals is like candy-floss, pleasant on the palate but it quickly evaporates. watch Avengers Infinity War online free hd

    It disappears straight out of my mind after watching, as if it has been rejected by the memory bank. A guilty pleasure then, just like the series that Sired it, even if The Originals does not feel very original. happy death day nude
