Wu-Tang Album now FBI item of interest

The Freedom of Information Act is a funny thing. Because of this act, everyday average citizens are able to send requests to the government to attain documents that, by all legal means and rights, aught to be public. As such, once the nefarious individual known as Martin Shkreli was arrested by the FBI earlier this week, geographer Andrew Wiseman sent a request to the FBI to release to him the Wu-Tang Clan album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin." Why? Because Shkreli has it.

Spotify Party lets you match music with mood

I'll admit that I'm not the best person to make a playlist for a party. Sure, I can come up with a mix CD for someone in particular, but I suck at party music.

Grooveshark clone slammed with damages in lost court case

Following the original Grooveshark’s demise, a cloned version of the service was brought to life in early May of this year, just a few days after the original service was killed.

Star Trek Beyond trailer uses Beastie Boys music

Star Trek Beyond trailer uses Beastie Boys music

The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond has been revealed, and it's a good time having ho-down of action. This isn't going to be a movie based on ships in space so much as it's going to be about the Enterprise sort of... getting swarmed and crashing. That'll happen within the first half of the movie, so it's no spoiler! Also this trailer features the Beastie Boys. That's strange, if you consider the fact that MCA, (may he RIP), stipulated in his will that "what you get is what you see, and you wont see me in the advertisiiing."
