Drew Barrymore fans may recognize the Boxer Rebellion from this summer’s rom-com Going the Distance, but soon everyone will be familiar with the Rebellion as the boys gear up to release their third album, The Cold Still. The foursome, based in the UK, has made a name for themselves through their moving music and the power behind their live shows. To make The Cold Still the band collaborated with legendary music producer Ethan Jones, who has worked with Kings of Leon, Rufus Wainwright, and Paulo Nutini, just to name a few. Released on the band’s own label, Absentee Recordings, the newest album contains ten new tracks including the first single “Step Out of the Car”. While the Boxer Rebellion have kept this much anticipated album mysterious, the snippets they have let slip promise the band’s best work yet.

The Cold Still will be available both digitally and on CD on February 7th, 2011 in the UK and Europe and February 8th in North America.

David Lynch, the cult director of surrealist and incisive films such as Eraserhead, Lost Highway, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, and, alas, Inland Empire, has released a synth-heavy song, “Good Day Today”. Furthermore, if you’ve seen any of his demanding films, you will, no doubt, notice the profound importance of sound and music present in them. Lynch is also set to release an album, and this song is apparently its first single. It’s not a strange world.

Those who have cable or satellite television have access to classic shows on TVLand, American Life Television, Nick at Nite, or something else, but for those still using digital sets or converter boxes things are different. That is, until now, perhaps.

MeTV has been a Chicago staple for several years, providing viewers with endless repeats of shows like Leave It to Beaver, Bewitched, I Love Lucy, The Munsters, Sanford & Son, and more recently, Happy Days, The Nanny, and Scrubs. Its success led to multiple affiliates and a sister network, MeToo, which airs dramas like Perry Mason, Charlie’s Angels, The Man From UNCLE, and Gunsmoke. Now the company behind it is taking the brand nation-wide beginning January 2011.

Many different families have various traditions around this time of year, but probably few of them came from something PBS used to air about ten years ago. Those from the UK might already be familiar with the adventures of Mr. Bean, a guy who has very unusual ways of doing everyday things, but it is harder to come by in the US. So here, for your comedic pleasure, is some holiday hilariousness that is safe for all ages.

Chances are, your Thanksgiving feast wasn’t as difficult to prepare as Mr. Bean’s was! In this classic clip from the British TV show, part of which was later shamelessly copied on Friends, you’ll learn the reason why you should never wear a watch while cooking.
