Advocacy group Parkinson’s UK is drawing criticism against Kanye West and his new album.  The head of the organization said that the album contained an “inexcusable level of stupidity” with a lyric from his latest record, Yeezus, The Guardian reports.  The actual line in question appears in the very beginning of the album where West says, “A monster about to come alive again / Soon as pull up and park the Benz / We get this b**ch shaking like Parkinson’s.”

Parkinson’s UK’s Chief Executive Steve Ford said in a statement, “People with Parkinson’s have to cope with intolerable social discrimination on a daily basis – often to the point where they are afraid to go out in public – and this sort of thoughtless, callous comment can only serve to make things even worse for them.”

The U.S. group American Parkinson Disease Association also chimed in with their opinion on West, with Vice President Kathryn Whitford telling TMZ, “We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance.”

O cineasta Edouard Molinaro, diretor de A gaiola das loucas e "Fuja enquanto é tempo", morreu hoje (7/12) em Paris, aos 85 anos. A causa da morte foi insuficiência respiratória.

O cineasta reconhecido pelas comédias que filmou com, entre muitos outros, Louis de Funès, Oscar(1967) e O Avôzinho Congelado (1969), começou com filmes  policiais e depois passou à comédia, dirigindo grandes atores franceses.

Começou a carreira quando a Nouvelle Vague anunciava uma nova era mas, ao contrário dos nomes que com ela emergiram, como Godard ou Truffaut, estava no coração da indústria cinematográfica

O auge de sua carreira foi a adaptação para o cinema, em 1978, da peça teatral A gaiola das loucas, com Michel Serrault e Ugo Tognazzi.

Edouard Molinaro filma alguns dos jovens nomes emblemáticos do cinema francês do seu tempo, de Jean-Claude Brialy, Françoise Dórleac e Jean-Pierre Cassel (em Arsène Lupin Contre Arsène Lupin, de 1962) a Brigitte Bardot (As Malícias do Amor, de 1964, também com Anthony Perkins) e a Jean-Paul Belmondo e Catherine Deneuve (Caça ao Homem, igualmente estreado em 1964). Desses actores, aponta ainda o Les Inrockuptibles, aproveitou para os seus filmes “o fogo e a vitalidade pop dos anos 1960”.


Compositor francês Bernard Parmegiani, responsável por inovações avant-garde e música eletroacústica, faleceu aos 86 anos.

Parmegiani pertence ao mesmo panteão como Luc Ferrari e François Bayle - inovadores compositores franceses, que operam na órbita da música concreta de Pierre Schaeffer, que ajudou a limpar o terreno para o meio século seguinte da prática musical.

"RIP Parmegiani, timeless and endlessly inspiring music from you." - Laurel Halo

21 de Dezembro de 1940 - 4 de dezembro de 1993 (52 anos).
Frank Zappa está no panteão de grandes músicos. Dezembro é um mês cruel para quem gosta de mister ‘Z’ morreu a 4 de dezembro de 1993. No final deste mês (21 de dezembro)faria 73 anos. Nos seus 53 anos mostrou-se perfeccionista e seminal, tornou-se um dos maiores guitarristas de todos os tempos, foi reconhecido como excelente compositor (de rock, jazz, música eletrônica e orquestral) e dono de um humor sarcástico e corrosivo.

Quem teve a oportunidade de assistir aos seus shows (ensaiados, ritualísticos, mágicos, sempre envolvendo três ou quatro horas de músicas sem intervalos) EU VI AO VIVO FRANK ZAPPA em Madrid, 1988, nas festas de San Isidro. Entre 25.000 e 30.000 pessoas assistiram ao concerto, que teve a participação de duas bandas de Madrid desfrutando de um bom número de seguidores, Mermelada e Burning- sabe do quão bom músico Zappa era, e como sabia extrair o melhor dos melhores músicos que contratava (em comum com Miles Davis).

Um DVD com imagens de actuações ao vivo foi lançado para assinalar o 10º aniversário da morte do cantor, guitarrista e produtor, «Does humour belong in music?» o DVD que inclui imagens do concerto realizado em Nova Iorque a 26 de agosto de 1984. Temas como «Zoot allure», «Tinsel town rebellion» ou «Trouble every day» são apresentados neste DVD.

Multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer, Frank Zappa died of prostrate cancer.He married Adelaide Gail Sloatman, in 1967, they had four children: Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen.

Frank Zappa was one of the most innovative and versatile rock musicians of his generation, creating a vast body of work that encompassed almost every genre of music — but he wouldn’t have wanted to hear it. The mercurial genius actively resisted those kinds of labels and effusive public praise, focusing instead on the work itself in a career that spanned more than three decades. He died on Dec. 4, 1993 at the age of 52 after a long battle with prostate cancer.

Born on Dec. 21, 1940, Zappa first came to widespread public attention in 1966, the year his first album with the Mothers of Invention was released. Characterized by a bizarre melting pot of musical influences, satirical lyrics, extremely high instrumental values and outrageous theatrical performances, that group attracted a strong base of public support while breaking almost all of the established rules of the music business.

After the Mothers first broke up in 1969, Zappa went on to a genre-defying career with a series of lineups that is impossible to pigeonhole or even accurately describe in words, in the process helping to discover and nurture artists as diverse as Alice Cooper and Steve Vai.

Zappa’s stable and relatively conventional home life belied his flamboyant public persona and outrageous lyrics. He married his wife, Gail, in 1967, and they remained together until the end of his life, raising four children together. Zappa fought with record companies and censors for much of his career, ultimately gaining the rights to his own master recordings and forming his own labels to release his work without interference. He often worked from a home studio or office, which allowed him to both keep up his workaholic ways, and spend time with his family.

Always up for pushing the boundaries of acceptable tastes, Zappa testified before Congress in 1985, when Tipper Gore’s PMRC proposed “voluntary” ratings should be placed on sound recordings. Zappa — who was vehemently opposed to organized religion and a staunch advocate of the First Amendment — said in part, “The establishment of a rating system, voluntary or otherwise, opens the door to an endless parade of moral quality control programs based on things certain Christians do not like.”

Zappa was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1990. He later said that he had experienced urinary problems for years, and submitted to repeated medical tests, but by the time he was diagnosed, doctors told him the condition had existed for many years and was inoperable, essentially giving Zappa a death sentence. He curtailed most of his musical activities, but spent the last few years of his life involved mainly in classical composition, debuting his work ‘The Yellow Shark’ to rousing success in Europe despite being very ill.

In the final television interview of his life, Zappa — appearing quite sick — described his health as “fair — good days, bad days.” Despite that, he smoked openly during the taping, dismissing the notion that smoking had played any role in his illness. “To me, a cigarette is food,” Zappa observed. “Tobacco is my favorite vegetable.”

Looking back on a career that most would view with envy, Zappa was adamant that the work itself had been the reward, not someone else’s assessment of his legacy. “It’s not important to even be remembered,” he maintained. “The people who worry about being remembered are guys like Reagan, Bush — these people want to be remembered, and they’ll spend a lot of money and do a lot of work to make sure that remembrance is just terrific. I don’t care.”
