Eternalism is a philosophy of time arguing that all points of time are real. Adherents to this ideology (i.e. stoners) will tell you 2000 didn't stop, it's always 2000 for those living in the present of 2000. It is with an eye on eternalism that we bring you the following collection of stories. You have entered. . .the Nu Twilight Zone.
First up, antichrist superstar Marilyn Manson has been cast on the upcoming season of the FX biker gang drama Sons of Anarchy. His character is named Ron Tully and is a white supremacist ruling his minions from a jail cell. If white supremacists pick their leaders based on paleness, Manson must be their king. Says Manson regarding the role, "Sons' has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father's, so I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of 'SOA' is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle." Making dad proud by going to jail. Keep doing it your way, Brian Warner. Sons of Anarchy's ultimate season starts airing in September.
Say what you will about Manson's music, at least he survived the era without making a total doofus of himself. Same can't be said for Limp Bizkit who are back on the troll-path. They've announced "Endless Slaughter," the new single from Stampede of the Disco Elephants -- like we could expect poet laureate ish from a band known to name albums Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water -- will be released initially as a cassette. Oh snaps, take that boutique noise, indie and black metal labels. I bet today is now just one of those days when you don't wanna wake up. The "experience" is to be sold at Limp's upcoming live shows. "Experience." In 30 years there's going to be a Limp Bizkit laser show. Bet on it.
Godsmack are naming their new album 1000 Horsepower. Said Wyatt, "THAT'S A LOT OF HORSES!" It's not known if Luck's David Milch will film Godsmack's first video. It's also not known if you can go back in time and delete your Godsmack-borrowing senior quote.
Korn's Jonathan Davis is miffed at Revolver for not including him in the stylized cover honoring participants at this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour. The art does include the bruised and bloodied visages of Mushroomhead and Body Count, among others. (Also, Cannibal Corpse. Just saying. Fair and balanced.) The scat man sorta sub-tweeted his displeasure on Thursday. He then jumped in his shower that sprays solely $100 bills. Life is hard.
Finally, Sublime With Rome -- which is not the shittiest remake of Roman Holiday ever, but a cover-heavy collaboration between Sublime's Eric Wilson and singer Rome Ramirez -- called foul on Linkin Park for calling authorities on their weedy ways. Sublime With Rome -- which is not sports talk radio Jim Rome's karaoke name -- were allegedly sparking up at KFMA Day 2014 in Tuscon, Arizona. Then the man came and took all their weed, man. Rome Ramirez sent the following flurry of tweets:
Linkin Park called the cops on us and said that they were allergic to pot. cops came and took all our weed while we on stage. Bitch shit. That just happened lol #snitches #bitchmove. Linkin nark.Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, along with other band members, denied being involved. Turns out, Linkin Park's security detail are the finger-pointers, because an unnamed band member is actually allergic to "marijuana smoke." In the end, I guess it doesn't even matter.
In related news, Linkin Park have mentioned they're crafting their next album in the spirit of Meshuggah and Botch. Hmmmm...
Find the full statement regarding Linkin Park's pot-smoking fiasco below. Have a great weekend.

Dee Dee?? (Living Things @ Highline / more by Leia Jospe)
St. Louis garage rockers Living Things are about to appear as one of their hero bands, the Ramones in the now-filming The Runaways, the biopic about the groundbreaking 70's all-girl hard rock group led by Joan Jett. Kristen Stewart of Twilight fame plays Jett, with Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Academy Award-nominated actor Michael Shannon as the band's "Svengali" Kim Fowley...Living Things have already recorded a cover of "We're A Happy Family."That makes two Twilight actors with roles as rock stars in upcoming movies. Living Things' new record, Habeas Corpus came out earlier this year on Jive Records. A track from it is posted above.
In addition to having a useful resemblance in attitude to the punk progenitors, the band has a direct line into the production - singer Lillian Berlin is the husband of the film's writer and director Floria Sigismondi.
In other movie news, the The Sun UK reports that "drug-guzzling shock-rocker" Marilyn Manson will be filming a musical, "Goth-inspired" version of Cinderella with Harry Potter's Emma Watson. 500 Days of Summer, starring She of She & Him, has an indie rock soundtrack that includes Feist, The Black Lips, and She & Him. Funny People, in addition to featuring characters wearing indie rock t-shirts, also has an indie-friendly soundtrack. Oh, and Patton Oswalt is a Big Fan.

NIN in Atlantic City, NJ (more by Zach Dilgard)
Got a few weeks to kill? Time to break out that new hard drive that you got over the holidays.
"The internet is full of surprises these days.And in the forum....
I was contacted by a mysterious, shadowy group of subversives who SOMEHOW managed to film a substantial amount (over 400 GB!) of raw, unedited HD footage from three separate complete shows of our Lights in the Sky tour. Security must have been lacking at these shows because the quality of the footage is excellent". -Trent Reznor
There is about 405gb of HD footage available. It was recorded with multiple consumer HDV cameras during three shows: Victoria 12.05.08, Portland 12.07.08, and Sacramento 12.12.08.The release of these torrents has PC World asking if NIN is the first "open source band". If so, there's more proof that open source is the way to go, because despite giving away their album Ghosts I-IV for free, it was Amazon's best selling digital album of 2008.
This is raw, unedited, un-color-corrected HD footage. It will be primarily of interest to advanced users, who may wish to attempt to edit it together into something. It could be really interesting to see what creative users can put together using this and other fan-recorded footage. These guys are off to a great start already.
...The footage is available as a free download via bitTorrent. If you don't know what bitTorrent is, please go to this link and read every word of it before you ask anyone on the forums what to do with the torrent files. [NIN Forum]
