Fed Up About Roads

It has gotten to the point where I cringe when I have to drive around this area. There are areas in Traverse City that look like a war zone. When you have to spend more time viewing potholes instead on concentrating on the road, accidents are bound to happen...

Madonna has co-written and is directing a new movie titled simply W.E., which began shooting a few weeks ago in London.

Seal is set to release his sixth studio album, Seal 6: Commitment, this month on Reprise Records. The soulful singer, whose first single from the album will be the emotional “Secret,” says that the album’s title stems from his own life being “fully committed,” to his wife (model/actress/Project Runway hostess Heidi Klum), his family, his own well-being, and his music career. “I hope that the music strikes a chord with people,” Seal says...

And after much speculation and chat about Weezer going completely DIY/independent upon leaving their long time major label home of Geffen/Interscope Records, turns out the band has signed with Epitaph Records, and are dropping their debut disc on that label this month. The new Weezer album, called Hurley, has already offered up its lead single, “Memories”...
