Joaquin Phoenix Works With Diddy

In a break from new music posts, here’s a bit of tasty news from one of our favorite actors making the all too baffling leap into music.  Some of you may have already seen the ridiculous video of Joaquin Phoenix rapping/falling on stage, but you may not have known that Phoenix plans to bring Sean “Diddy” Combs on board to produce his album.  You may also not know that Casey Affleck (Ben’s sort of talented younger brother) plans to make a documentary about the creation of this album.  We don’t even know what to say… just look at that picture.  Phoenix is either on heavy medication/drugs or just another actor who plans on embarassing themselves for our amusementSinging like Johnny Cash does not mean rapping is a good idea.  ATH fans, how about a Joaquin Phoenix album title or worst musical acts by famous actors?  Go!

    I’m jumping in to defend Capn Kirk…

    William Shatner, “It Hasn’t Happened Yet”

    “It Hasn’t Happened Yet” by William Shatner

    The largely spoken-word album that Shatner made with Ben Folds a few years back is surprisingly effective, even though some of that effect is about making listeners cringe. Still, Has Been is a real record, with real songs, some of which are moving and curiously revealing. The best in the latter regard has to be the torchy, melancholy “It Hasn’t Happened Yet,” in which Shatner laments the lack of certainty in his life, even at this late date.

    Fools! No one disses Bruce Willis’ “The Return of Bruno” and gets away with it! It doesn’t hold a candle to Eddie Murphy’s “Party All the Time.”

    Just look for yourself…
