My brother's favorite band is releasing a live album. But WAIT! It's not new (do you see a trend here?), the audio CD is actually the audio soundtrack of the DVD of I Heard a Voice ..…

Singer/songwriter of AFI, Davey Havok, announced his debut novel, Pop Kids, coming out April 4th, 2013, via Black Candy Publishing.
We will be doing a proper review of the book, because we like AFI and we're looking forward to reading the book. This is just a pre-order announcement for you. In fact, if you pre-order the book, you do get a special embossed edition signed by Davey Havok - all for the same retail price of $20.
The publisher describe the book as a fictional novel about today's youth: "Obsessed by social networking, reality tv, Internet porn, fashion, film, music, sex, and drugs – today’s teens are on an existential collision course with disaster. With an insider’s eye for nuance, language and style, Davey Havok, lead singer and songwriter of AFI and Blaqk Audio, creates a blistering, yet compelling portrait of high school angst in his debut novel POP KIDS."

Attention Beatles fans: Places I Remember: My Time With the Beatles is available for purchase now via the publisher's website, curvebender.com.
This 13-pound book, features over 1,000 photographs of The Beatles and their families and friends, all shot by Henry Grossman. Many of these photographs have never been seen. I haven't seen these books, but based on their website; it seems they are only producing these books for very wealthy Beatles collectors with the "standard" pricing of $495, and going up as much as $1190 bundle and autographs!
I'm sorry, for that much money, I'm buying a new computer… and probably still have some cash left over for a beer.
Still, I think if you see the book physically in the book stores - it would probably be very tempting.
Did you know that before the Gatlin Brothers, it was The Gatlin Quartet? Before the band went on tour, their sister, LaDonna Gatlin left the group to settled down: "[my brothers] went on to produce hit records, I went on to produce two children!".
In LaDonna's new book, The Song in You: Finding Your Voice, Redefining Your Life, she shares stories about raising children, putting family first, overcoming adversity, and ultimately inspiring countless others to discover their own 'song' in life.
If you were curious, she uses the music scale as a reminder of uplifting messages:
re (realize your potential)
mi (mind your manners)
fa (failures can become fertilizer)
sol (solutions begin with me)
ti (time is valuable)
Personally, I think of a deer (a female deer!), and so forth.
LaDonna has also recorded four solo CDs and is a contributing writer to the bestselling book series Chicken Soup for the Soul, her latest book The Song in You: Finding Your Voice, Redefining Your Life is out now via HCI Books.
