The Strokes At the Palace, Hollywood photos by Kastle Call them what you want — “Next Big Thing,” “Buzz Band,” “All the Rage In England” — one thing is for sure, the scruffy bunch of New York City newcomers known as the Strokes have created the biggest musical stir of the year. With sounds reminiscentRead More…
I have to admit that I was one of those people who, upon hearing last year of Miramax and Quentin Tarantino’s decision to release his long awaited film “KILL BILL” in two parts, thought I smelled disaster. After all, the movie must be an overly long, self-indulgent flop if they couldn’t edit it down toRead More…
THE MATRIX: REVOLUTIONS Warner Brothers I have to begin by stating that it is impossible to consider “The Matrix: Revolutions” outside of the context of the first two films in the Matrix Trilogy: obviously, the film cannot be separated from the preceding films. But “Revolutions” – although a stupendous technical filmmaking achievement which does haveRead More…
Beautiful Creatures by Kastle photo by Greg Watermann For those who lived through the late ‘80s glam-metal era, recovery from the hangover hasnÕt been easy. The images are too vivid — and the pictures too prevalent — to simply forget all that hair and makeup, all that spandex, all those over-the-top parties. But if theRead More…
STARSKY & HUTCH Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller – the comedy duo of this decade apparently – score once more with this fun remake of the 1970’s TV series “Starsky and Hutch.” I don’t remember too much of the original series but I am sure this adaptation is an improvement; it is set as aRead More…

THIRTEEN Fox Searchlight Pictures While I was watching Catherine Hardwicke’s new film “Thirteen” I had a very strange reaction – apart from the familiarity of the events on the screen which seemed to be ripped from the lives of myself and my friends — I felt really sorry for my mom (who would think?). IRead More…
I just read on the celeb gossip column on winkbingo.com that Jessica Simpson, who’s latest album “Happy Christmas” was a refreshing surprise in the 2010 music scene, is the midst of a public quarrel with John Mayer. Allegedly, the reason for this dispute was Mayer’s sharing intimate secrets about their love life with Payboy magazine in a recent interview!
KILL BILL: Volume One Release Date: October 10th, 2003 (wide). MPAA Rating: R for strong bloody violence, language and some sexual content. Distributor: Miramax I meant to do a much longer review of Quentin Tarantino’s new film, “Kill Bill: Volume One” but Miramax wouldn’t let me intoRead More…
“Fading Into Bright” Tribunal Records $$$$ With bands like Blink 182, Dashboard Confessionals, and Newfound Glory dominating the emo pop-punk genre of today, the idea of a girl rocking out and sounding good is hard to fathom. However Everafter is quite the band, and Ashley Smith is quite the singer. Now is the time toRead More…

Guest Coolgrrrl correspondent Jackie O of Detroit interviews Christian of the Datsuns from backstage at their show in Bordeaux, France!!If you believe all the hype out there, rock’n’roll is now making a comeback. But I’ll go ahead and assume that you’re smart enough not to buy into all the shit that the Man is tryingRead More…
Hybrid by Shannon Hybrid: the name says it all. They’ve managed to create the ultimate “hybrid” form of music by fusing elements of dance, classical, jazz and rock.
