Get Wendy & Lisa’s ‘Nurse Jackie’ Score NOW!

What better way to bring in the Ides of March than by listening to some new music by Wendy & Lisa? Sure, you could participate in the annual toga run in Rome, but wouldn’t it be that much more fun to have the new Nurse Jackie score on your favorite portable music device? Showtime is releasing the first season score by the musical dynamic duo on March 2nd. If you can’t wait that long (Wendy & Lisa music is MUST HAVE music after all) Showtime is offering all the tracks as a download on their website right now. The CD and download are both more than reasonably priced, in fact you can pick up both for around the same price as a new CD at the store. The music that Lisa Coleman and Wendy Melvoin have composed for Nurse Jackie is funkier and more playful than their compositions for two of my favorite TV soundtracks, Heroes and Carnivàle, and handily continues the creative high from their 2008 album White Flags of Winter Chimneys. To give you an idea of what awaits you on this new disc of audio joy, check out the Nurse Jackie title sequence below.

Fall Preview: Movies

We are pleased to unveil the first in a series of Fall Preview podcasts that will highlight not only the upcoming films for the next two months, but all manner of geekdom and pop culture goodness as well. Each week, the PCZ brain trust will sit down and hash out the good, bad and indifferent that will be presented to you in the form of movies, television, comics, books, music, games, toys and anything else that fits into our little corner of the universe.

The past few months have unleashed a bounty of cinematic glory for fans who have eagerly anticipated a summer film season of epic proportions. This year, we have already been treated to the reinvention of a perennial Hollywood star’s career, the newest chapter in a storied franchise and the second highest domestic grossing film of all time. After Iron Man, Indy, Batman and a host of other blockbusters, do fans have anything emotions left in the tank for the next crop of films? What is there to look forward to in this downhill slope toward the holiday season?

In this episode, we break down the films scheduled to hit theaters in September and October. From the return of the Cohen brothers to J. Michael Straczynski’s first screenwriting effort, we give the lowdown on what has us both excited and confounded about the next two months of film. Join Dan, Joe, Ian, Wes and Bob as we revel in the madness that is the PCZ Fall Preview!


U2 & Live Nation Join Forces

Variety is reporting today that U2 have signed a deal with concert promoters Live Nation that will keep them on stages across the globe for the next 12 years. The agreement with U2 is Live Nation Artists’ first feather in their cap since landing a deal with Madonna last year. The deal with U2 will include concert promotion, merchandising, digital and branding rights.

U2 frontman Bono said of the deal that the group wanted a “closer, more direct relationship between the band and its audience, and Live Nation has pledged to help us with that.”

U2’s deal with LNA will not affect their recording agreement presently in place with Universal.
