Ozzy Osbourne Reveals Cover for June LP 'Scream'

Metal god Ozzy Osbourne's Scream is due out June 15th and Rolling Stone has your first look at his new album cover. The angel wings, the red typeface, Ozzy standing victorious atop a mountain with a black flag in hand — who else but the Prince of Darkness could deliver album artwork like this? It looks like he's prepared to bark at the moon, to borrow from an Ozzy album of yore. Scream's first single "Let Me Hear You Scream" is already receiving heavy radio airplay after it premiered on an episode of CSI: NY two weeks ago. He'll shoot the video for "Let Me Hear You Scream" next month with director Jonas Akerlund (Lady Gaga's epic "Telephone" clip) at the helm.

Scream was produced by Ozzy and Kevin Churko, the same team behind Osbourne's 2007 album Black Rain. Ozzy also had a hand in writing all of Scream's 11 tracks. The album will feature Osbourne's new guitarist Gus G. as well as bassist Blasko, drummer Tommy Clufetos and keyboardist Adam Wakeman.

As Ozzy told Rolling Stone in January, the album originally had another title, but his fans protested. "I was going to call it after one of the tracks on the album called 'Soul Sucker.' When we put it on the Internet, none of my fan base liked the title, so I was like, 'Fuck it. I've got to come up with another title,' you know," he admitted. "They said, 'I can't imagine me walking around the fucking house with 'Soul Sucker' on my T-shirt.' OK, fine — thank you."

Ozzy will embark on an 18-month world tour as well as revive his annual Ozzfest after a one-year hiatus. The official announcement and details for Ozzfest 2010 will arrive this Friday night.

Scream Track List:
"Let It Die"
"Let Me Hear You Scream"
"Soul Sucker"
"Life Won't Wait"
"Diggin' Me Down"
"I Want It More"
"Latimer's Mercy"
"I Love You All"

Green Day Moonlight as Foxboro Hot Tubs at Beer-Soaked Secret Show

By the time the Foxboro Hot Tubs reached the beer-soaked, shambling conclusion of their chaotic two-plus-hour set in the basement of New York's Bowery Electric last night at nearly 3 a.m., roughly 950 cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon had been consumed and nearly twice that amount had been poured out over bandmembers' heads or sprayed into the audience. Two Who songs had been covered, one plastic alligator head had been angrily brandished, a number called "It's Fuck Time" was played eight times, three women had been kissed and one attempt to repair a marriage by telephone had gone completely awry.

Such is the particular brand of anarchy practiced by the Foxboro Hut Tubs — or, as they are more commonly known, Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool (along with guitarist Kevin Preston and touring musicians Jason Freese and Jason White). If Green Day's main concern is a spit-shined and muscular arena punk outfit, the Foxboro Hot Tubs are the exact opposite. The show was a dervish from the first note, bodies colliding and songs arriving in white hot flashes. Armstrong spent more time in the crowd than onstage, repeatedly hurling his body into the audience and allowing himself to be passed overhead from one end of the room to the other. It was a rare and occasionally startling sight: a bona fide rock star coming within literal touching — and often, groping — distance of his fans.

The very nature of the show seemed fantastically quixotic. There are no clear fiscal rewards for the band — the venue officially holds only 108 people, though it was jammed with a few more — and they played just one song, "St. Jimmy," from the Green Day catalog. What the show did provide was an opportunity for the group to spit at the rules of professional rock & roll. More than anything, they came off as old friends who had known each other for ages, had far too much to drink, and were just going to keep bashing out bleary-eyed garage songs until somebody pulled the plug.

The music is perfectly suited to this kind of giddy haphazardness: the Hot Tubs hang out at the intersection where garage started giving way to punk, and their hot-rodding Kinks-meet-Stooges rave-ups sound best loud, and when most of the band is intoxicated. Sunday's set list was cobbled together from audience suggestions and the impulses of the band members, which meant that there was plenty of time for Armstrong to dally in perplexing non sequiturs ("I don't like to Swedish kiss, I like to French kiss") and several songs got multiple plays. In fact, their latest, "It's Fuck Time," gradually evolved into something of a running joke, the kind that's funny the first time you hear it, hilarious the fourth and excruciating the eighth.

Sunday's show, as well as a Friday show at Don Hill's, came at a time when Green Day are at their most professional, earning accolades from unexpected quarters for the Broadway version of American Idiot. In case anyone in the audience had forgotten the musical existed, a few of the show's cast members took repeated opportunities to remind them, mugging for the audience and showily hamming it up with the band until, a little after 2 a.m., a very weary, very drunk Armstrong playfully chided them by saying, "I love you guys, but you have to get the fuck off the stage."

There were times the same could be said to the Hot Tubs themselves. As the night went on and the participants became — both internally and externally — alcohol soaked, the show ambled off in odd directions, including not one but two meandering noise jams, one of which even featured darting jazz flute. But the reason the show worked was that the wall between performer and audience was obliterated: Armstrong repeatedly invited people onstage and many obliged, one of whom Armstrong treated to a sustained, open-mouth kiss. He emptied entire cans of beer over his head, then sprayed them out into the crowd. It felt natural and unforced, music being made for the sheer enjoyment of making it, and for the frenzy it instills in those who hear it.

Occasionally, the tight bond between performer and spectator turned out some strange results. Near the end of the show, an audience member stumbled onstage and implored Armstrong to call his wife, who had just left him. "Did you cheat on her?" Armstrong drunkenly deadpanned. The two then clumsily called the woman in question who, unsurprisingly, did not answer. Armstrong, soaked to the skin with beer and steadily moving past coherent ordered the band into another number and the man, crestfallen, did the only thing he could do: looked out into the audience, shrugged, and launched himself over top of it.

AC/DC : Puncaki Top Chart Berkat Iron Man

Band rock legendaris, AC/DC kembali puncaki chart album Inggris berkat bantuan dari Iron Man 2. Sepertinya Angus Young cs. mengulang kesuksesan beberapa tahun silam lewat Back In Black, pada Agustus 1980.

AC/DC berjaya dengan album Original Soundtrack Iron Man 2. Mereka menggusur album album Wake Up Nation milik Paul Weller dan penyanyi fenomenal, Lady Gaga. Sementara album terbaru Meat Loaf dengan judul Hang Cool Teddy Bear berada di peringkat keempat.

Pendatang baru, Diana Vicker dengan hits berjudul Once puncaki chart single UK, kalahkan OMG dari Usher featuring Will I Am.

Semoga kesuksesan soundtracknya ini jadi petanda buat kesuksesan film Iron Man 2.Let's see..

Madonna Duduk Manis di Puncak Billboard Hot 200

Setelah kemaren AC/DC masuk ke puncak chart Inggris lewat soundtrack Iron Man 2, sekarang giliran Madonna yang berjaya. Yup, albumnya merupakan original soundtrack drama komedi televisi Glee, berjudul The Power of Madonna, minggu ini duduk manis di posisi teratas Billboard Hot 200.

Duduk di belakang Glee, terdapat Lady Antebellum yang ngebooming dengan album Need You Now. Albumnya terjual sebanyak 83.000 kopi. Disusul Justin Bieber, si penyanyi muda bertalenta. Albumnya berjudul My World 2.0 asik berseluncur di posisi tiga.

Di Amerika Serikat, AC/DC dengan soundtrack Iron Man 2 hanya mampu bertahan di posisi keempat. Di bawah AC/DC, album milik Usher bertitel Raymond vs Raymond melorot satu slot ke peringkat lima.

Sementara Lady Gaga melesat ke posisi paling buncit. Gadis Paparazi ini bertahan di posisi sepuluh dengan album The Fame, yang mampu terjual 28.000 kopi.

Nah sekarang udah ada tahu kan, album mana yang recommended…

“Peter Answers”, kehebohan?

Hari ini ada sesuatu yang mengejutkan selagi saya di sekolah. Sedang santai-santai di kelas, tiba-tiba ada yang berteriak-teriak mengenai sebuah website yang alkisah dapat menjawab (dengan tepat) semua pertanyaan anda.

Omigot. Tak lama kemudian, anak-anak kelas berebut mencoba di komputer kelas. Namun tidak ada yang membuahkan hasil; sejauh-jauhnya hanya celotehan tentang “anda kurang percaya” atau “saya tidak mau jawab”. Halah.

Hingga akhirnya ada teman dari kelas lain yang (ceritanya) “percaya”, dan, ternyata, selagi dia yang memegang kendali sang jin menjawab semua pertanyaan – bahkan yang sangat personal sekalipun – dengan akurat!

Saya akan membahas lebih banyak mengenai website ini di bagian bawah tulisan ini. Mungkin anda ingin mencobanya.

Cara menggunakan: Tunggu halaman selesai loading. Di kotak input paling atas, ketik “Peter, please answer:” atau “Peter, please answer the following question:”. Kemudian, secara automatis anda akan pindah ke kotak bawah, di mana anda dapat mengetik pertanyaan anda. Akhiri dengan tanda tanya, atau tekan enter. Tunggu sesaat, dan peter akan menjawab. (Saat pertama kali mencoba, anda akan ditanyai dulu persetujuannya. Tekan “I agree”.)

Selamat mencoba. May the souls be with you.

(Saya akan menganalisa website tersebut lebih lanjut dalam post ini. Jika anda tidak ingin tahu, harap tidak membuka kelanjutan post ini.)

Ok, bagaimana? Dapat hasil? Wah, pasti anda kurang percaya… Kasihan. Coba deh, sedikit lebih percaya.

Ah, sekali lagi dicoba. Konsentrasi.

Pasti bisa!


Ok, ok, ok. Anda bisa menebak kalau ada yang tidak beres di sini. Ingin membaca analisa saya? Silahkan.

Ini merupakan analisa website tersebut. Bagi yang tidak ingin mengetahui lebih lanjut, berhentilah membaca. Sekarang.

Sekarang, ayo kita analisa sedikit lebih mendetail alur penggunaan fasilitas ini. Pertama, kita harus mengetik “Peter, please answer:” atau versi panjangnya, kemudian automatis kita akan pindah ke bawah dan dapat mengetik pertanyaan. Ada beberapa hal yang janggal bagi saya.

  • Hanya beberapa orang yang bisa menggunakannya. Selain mereka, peter benar-benar menolak menjawab.
  • Mengapa kita harus mengetik berulang-ulang “petisi” itu?
  • Mengapa kita dengan alangkah baiknya dibantu oleh script, sehingga dengan diketiknya tanda “:” langsung berpindah kotak, dan dengan tanda tanya langsung terkirim?
  • Mengapa bahasa apapun bisa dijawab?
  • Mengapa harus sesuatu yang pasti?

Jika anda ingin menganalisa sendiri, silahkan. Saya akan lanjut.

Bagaimana jika saya langsung to-the-point tentang bagaimana cara membuat seisi ruangan merinding, orang teriak-teriak ayat kursi dan bahkan melemparnya? Sederhana.

Inilah penjelasan triknya, bagi anda yang tidak tidur tiga hari sembilan malam karena Peter Answers. Enjoy.

Cobalah ketik sebuah tanda titik (“.”) di kotak atas, yang ceritanya adalah petition. Tapi yang keluar adalah huruf P. Sekarang coba ketik apa saja yang anda mau. Keluarnya bukanlah apa yang anda ketik, melainkan huruf-huruf “eter, please answer”, sepanjang jumlah huruf yang anda ketik. Dengan kata lain, yang tampil di layar selalu tulisan tersebut, bukan yang anda ketik, selama anda telah menekan titik pada saat pertama mulai mengetik. Ajaib, toh?

Lanjut. Setelah anda menekan titik kemudian huruf apa saja (yang tampil sebagai bagian dari “petisi” yang seharusnya ditulis), coba tekan lagi tanda titik. Sekarang yang anda ketik benar-benar akan sampai ke layar. Silahkan ketik sisa petisi, melanjutkan dari apa yang sudah terlihat.

Sekarang, tekan tombol titik dua (“:”). Ok, sudah pindah ke kotak bawah. Nah, isikan pertanyaan anda di situ. Lanjutkan ke seperti biasa.

Dan hasilnya?

Huruf-huruf di antara kedua titik tersebut akan dituliskan sebagai jawaban dari Peter. Ini rahasianya. Jadi, majulah ke keyboard, dan coba ini di depan teman-teman anda. (Ini bekerja jauh lebih efektif di komputer yang keyboardnya jauh dari layar, tidak cocok di notebook. Jangan sampai orang melihat apa yang anda ketik!)

Saya akan akhiri dengan sebuah contoh. Misalkan, saya akan menanyakan warna tas saya (hijau).

Di petisi, yang saya tekan pada awalnya adalah: “.hijau.”. Yang tampil adalah “Peter, “. Ok, sekarang saya akan selesaikan kalimat tersebut dengan normal: “please answer:”. Dan di bawah, seperti biasa akan saya tulis: “Apa warna tas saya?”. Dan keluarlah, “Peter answers: hijau”. Ajaib… Benar-benar ajaib, seberapa jauh tipuan sederhana bisa membuat orang ketakutan.

Oh ya, petisi lebih panjang “Peter, please answer the following question:” adalah untuk jawaban yang lebih panjang.

Selamat menipu.

Perhatian!! Jangan masukkan data pribadi anda!

Bisa jadi Peter Answers adalah teknik penjebakan untuk menarik informasi mengenai orang-orang diam-diam. Dia merekam segala sesuatu yang anda ketik dan mungkin menyimpan data tersebut di servernya. Karena itu, JANGAN SEKALI-KALI MENGIRIMKAN DATA PRIBADI (seperti nomer kartu kredit, KTP, dsb) kepada peter!!

Harap waspada.

Sedikit informasi teknis untuk sesama programmer:

Sistem Peter Answers menggunakan AJAX, yang mengirim data ke server (menggunakan script ajaxian sepertinya). Script utamanya adalah [] yang menyimpan perintah untuk conversi karakter pada saat mengetikkan. Bila anda bosan, coba saja bonkar script itu. :D
