Vol. 1 No. 11, Week of May 9, 2011
Roxy Rawson sings that “God’s Got Bones;” Marie Osmond and the Prodigal Husband; Fictionist on a roof, on a magazine, in a box, with a fox; Shaun Barrowes sells a song to Coke and offers you money to let him perform your song, and more!
Roxy Rawson has posted her complete new single (last time was just a preview) for pay-what-you-want-even-nothing-you-heartless-monster download. If you enjoy it, the least you can do to show it (literally, the very least) is to go to this website and vote for it. Also, new album title announced: “Quenching the Kill” I quenched the kill once. It was weird. You can also visit her site to check out some video previews and demos. It’s an old song, but it still has one of the best titles in linescratchers history, and you can hear it on her site: God’s Got Bones.
Marie Osmond recently re-married her first husband, according to dailyindia.com. Indians love their Osmond Family news. Also, remarrying ex-spouse? That always works. Seriously though, we wish them the best. (Thanks, Dallin.)
Fictionist played the first in a series of free rooftop concerts happening in Provo this summer and fall. Upcoming concerts include the Neon Trees (fresh off their appearance this week on Letterman) and the Lower Lights, among many others.
Speaking of Fictionist, you can still vote for them to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone. Even (especially?) if you voted before, because they’ve moved on to a new round and everyone can vote again. Just four left this time! If they win, I guess second sexiest mormons to appear on the cover of rolling stone is a pretty alright thing to put on your resume.
Ex-American Idol guy Shaun Barrowes recently sold a song, Sail Away, Soldier, to Coke for a commercial. He also just returned from a successful tour of Italy. He also just collected and posted a bunch of his videos on his stumbler. I stumbled something once.* Also, musicians: Shaun will pay you $2500 to use your song on his show, Live for Music. He’ll also perform it, which could be cool or it could be weird. But it would probably at least be interesting.
