The Big Hurt: Deluxe buyer's guide

The word on seasonal box sets

Music news in brief: Bieber bullied, Kayne weird, Black Keys Pea'd

The Big Hurt
It's been a rough month for our biggest stars: Weezy's in solitary, TI's going back to jail, and now that rascally Biebs has run afoul of the mounties for scrapping with a 12-year-old kid who has since filed a formal complaint.

The Big Hurt: Alternative rock songs

Who Charted?
I got up this morning filled with a furious hatred of alt-rock — I was tossing and turning half the night with Third Eye Blind's "Semicharmed Life" stuck in my head, a torment I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

If you thought Sex Pistols Perfume was the unlikeliest endorsement I'd lay on you this month, think again.

The Big Hurt: Sex Pistols perfume

Plus ELO death and Moz racism

The Big Hurt: Cruising with music that floats

Love boat
I'm not usually one to plan ahead, but let's consider my Valentine's Day nailed down . Buddy, I've got three words for you, plus a number: Boyz II Men Cruise.

The Big Hurt: Tila gets shat on

Plus Faithless sell out, plus Jay Electronica vs. Lil B, and props for Cee Lo

The Big Hurt: Bieber goes 3-D

Plus Badd get bad, Loggins hits the highway, Perry slams 'Perry'
This one is a few weeks old, but I think it bears mentioning: one of the dudes from COLOR ME BADD — the second-most-piratey-looking dude, if that helps — was arrested on charges of being a lady hitter. Another part of my youth destroyed; another piece of my soul yanked from my body.

The Big Hurt: This week in brand synergy

Blige, Bieber, and Sears connect the dots
Uh oh, it appears I don't have anything important to make fun of — I was really counting on a member of Aerosmith's dying right before my deadline or something, but no such luck. Let's mine the press-release pile for some fresh squareness.

Mysteries of the Hot 100

The Big Hurt: Who Charted?
After a year of reviewing only Top 10 hits, it seems I've pretty much run out of Drake jokes. For now, anyway — don't go thinking I'm gonna stop making Drake jokes. Actually, I was lying — I've still got a shitload of Drake jokes.

The Big Hurt: Critic proof

The wacky world of Allstar Weekend
One of the perks of being a credible music journalist for a major weekly is that record labels are always sending you free promo CDs, hoping you'll find the time to shine the light of your critical expertise upon them (and liberally quote the press kit).
