Bob Dylan celebrated his 73rd birthday earlier this week and it feels like he’s led nearly as many lives. He began as a Woody Guthrie acolyte, imitating the dust-bowl balladeer as faithfully as a baby boomer from Hibbing, Minnesota, could. It wasn’t long before he found his own voice, spearheading the early-1960s folk revival as well as the singer-songwriter movement, and introducing poetry into pop music. Through countless changes in sound, image, and even religion, he retained his unique artistic vision even when his popularity occasionally waned. By the 21st century, he was enjoying an upsurge of critical and popular interest based on a series of powerful late-career albums that crystallized his aesthetics and unique world view.

Remember when super hero movies weren’t nearly as huge as they are today? All you have to do is look back about 15 years ago, just before X-Men hit theaters in 2000 and brought Wolverine, Professor X and the rest of Marvel’s Merry Band of Mutants to the big screen, kicking off a wave that continues to this day of capes, masks and form-fitting outfits to the big-screen.

X-MenBlog

With X-Men: Days of Future Past hitting theaters today (and hopefully clearing up some of the continuity issues that that have developed between 2000 and now), we thought it would be fun to roundup the various movies and TV shows that have featured the X-Men or its characters in some way.

oasis_definitelymaybeThis week, we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of one of the definitive albums — no, make that the definitive album — of the Britpop era, OasisDefinitely Maybe.

It wasn’t the feuding Manchester group’s most popular release — that would be the follow-up (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? — but its songs and swagger set the course for one of the most fertile periods of British guitar rock. In fact, the album’s influence can still be heard today in young artists like Jake Bugg and the Arctic Monkeys.

In addition to sing-along pub classics like “Live Forever,” “Supersonic” and “Cigarettes and Alcohol,” the remastered deluxe edition of Definitely Maybe, now available on Music Unlimited, also features a bounty of loud and leery B-sides, demos and live tracks that will send you running to your closet, searching for your parka and Adidas trainers.

Listen to Definitely Maybe (Remastered) [Deluxe Edition] now on Music Unlimited.

Check out more Britpop classics from Oasis.
