Clever rhyming, infectious beats, and Revenge of the Nerds references make this Norwegian electro-rock band a no-brainer.

Them Crooked Vultures have sparked mystery and intrigue amongst music fans and critics alike. The line-up consists of John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), and Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age). First hinted at in 2005 to Mojo , Them Crooked Vultures officially surfaced this month in front of fortunate fans in Chicago and Amsterdam. Details regarding upcoming shows, appearances, sound, and album release have been scarce. While a handful of fans have experienced the rock phenomenon in the flesh, the rest of us must patiently follow the clues and await the public debut.

Me and Orson Welles
Director: Richard Linklater
Cast: Zac Efron, Claire Danes
Opening: 25 November
Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat—Zac Efron is not, I repeat not playing Orson Welles in the upcoming film by Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise, School of Rock). Let’s pause for a moment so that we may collectively let out an enormous sigh of relief before continuing on to the task at hand.
Ready? The good news is apart from that, Me and Orson Welles looks to be an engaging and entertaining view of Welles’ Mercury Theater and its 1937 staging of Julius Caesar. Despite having recieved excellent reviews since its first screening at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival, the film has had trouble finding a distributor here in the United States. The fault for this, however, would seem to lie more in the limited appeal of its subject matter (with nary a crime-fighting guinea pig or wisecracking robot to be found!) rather than in its level of quality. We’ll find out for ourselves on November 25th when it is scheduled for release.
