Eureka the Butcher (Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez of The Mars Volta, Zechs Marquise) Announces Debut Album “Music for Mothers”

Eureka the Butcher "Music for Mothers" album cover

Eureka the Butcher, solo pseudonym of Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez (also of Zechs Marquise and The Mars Volta) announces the forthcoming release of his debut album. The recording, Music For Mothers is dedicated to the multi-instrumentalist’s mother Frances Sarah Rodriguez-Lopez who passed away last year.

“This record is for my mom because she is the reason why I started playing the piano,” says Marcel. “She told me that it was great that I wanted to play drums, but if I played the piano, I could create music and play to a room full of people by myself. I didn’t start playing drums for another 4 years, and I wouldn’t start playing piano for another 7 or so. That’s when I started making electronic music. Making music under the Eureka name gives me that ability: to make music and perform by myself. I, however, do not perform alone. Sadah Luna performs with me because of my love for her dance and her love for my music. She completes the live show.”

Christina Amphlett, Lead Singer of Divinyls, Dead at Age 53

Christina Amphlett

Christina “Chrissy” Amphlett – front woman of the Australian rock band the Divinyls, whose “I Touch Myself” went to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1991 – died Sunday at her home in New York. Amphlett was 53 years old.

Amphlett’s husband of 14 years, former Divinyls drummer and multi-instrumentalist/producer Charley Drayton, confirmed in a statement that his wife died after battling multiple sclerosis since 2007, and breast cancer since 2010.

“Chrissy’s light burns so very brightly,” Drayton stated. “Hers was a life of passion and creativity; she always lived it to the fullest… With her force of character and vocal strength she paved the way for strong, sexy, outspoken women.”

Drayton also revealed that Amphlett had “expressed hope that her worldwide hit ‘I Touch Myself’ would remind women to perform annual breast examinations.” (via Yahoo!)

“Futurama” to End Its Seven-Season Run on September 4, 2013


Comedy Central has decided not to renew ”Futurama,” meaning the show will end its 140-episode run on September 4, 2013. The final 13 episodes, which represent the second half of season seven, begin airing on June 19th at 10 pm.

The series originally aired aired from 1999 to 2003 before Fox cancelled the series for the first time. After thriving in reruns on Adult Swim, ”Futurama” was relaunched in 2007 with four-direct-to-DVD movies that Comedy Central ran in half-hour increments as a 16-episode fifth season in 2008-09. Comedy Central subsequently ordered a sixth season of 26 episodes, which aired in 2010-11, and a seventh season of 26 episodes, the first half of which debuted in 2012.

The producers say that they are exploring options for a new home for the show, but there are no serious talks at this point.

“We’ve been in this situation before, and it’s tempting when you’re doing episodes that are as good or better than anything you’ve ever done to continue doing it,” series creator Matt Groening says. “We’re catching our breath and seeing what the fans have to say. The experience of this show has been so much fun from the very beginning to now — everybody is so happy to work on this show — that it’d be a shame if we all went our separate ways… We would love to continue. We have many more stories to tell. But if we don’t, this is a really great way to go out… I think these episodes are the best ones we’ve ever done.” (via EW)

John Hughes’ 1985 Film “Weird Science” to Get a Remake

Weird Science

Deadline reports that Silver Pictures and Universal are teaming together for a remake of Weird Science, the 1985 sci-fi comedy about two nerds who create their own idealized woman. Written and directed by John Hughes, the original starred Anthony Michael Hall, Robert Downey, Jr., Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Bill Paxton, and Kelly LeBrock.

The remake will be written by Michael Bacall, who scripted last year’s Project X for Silver Pictures and also wrote the script for the hit film 21 Jump Street, based on the ‘80s TV show of the same name. According to the article, the film will “attempt to carve out its own identity by being redrawn as an edgier R-rated comedy in line with 21 Jump Street and The Hangover.” (via Paste)
