Anthony Kiedis TV Show

Word on the street is that long time Red Hot Chilli Peppers front man, Anthony Kiedis, is planning a series for HBO based on his rock ‘n’ roll childhood.  The memoir is tentatively titled “Scar Tissue” and focuses on Kiedis’ move from Michigan to Hollywood and his relationship with a rock star lifestyle dad.  Variety has the whole story.  This follows a recent trend of famous 90s front men taking on completely random new projects.  Have your say and give us some episode ideas in the comment section.

Watch All of MTV’s Videos Online

Well, MTV might have just made itself cool again. It’s rolling out MTV Music – a free, searchable database of nearly every video in their vault. My only question is, what took them so long? It has a slick interface, the site runs quickly and the video quality is much better than the user-submitted videos on YouTube. Sorry if we just ruined your work day, but we’ve already spent hours looking at some old favorites.
