Apple Releases iTunes 11 Today

Apple has officially released iTunes 11. The new iTunes features a simplified player, redesigned Store and new iCloud features. A considerably redesigned interface focuses on edge-to-edge designs for albums, movies, and TV shows in the iTunes library, and personal recommendations are available when users click In the Store, which has similarly been simplified visually. Purchases in iCloud now appear inside your iTunes library, and can be played directly from iCloud or downloaded as a copy to sync to a device or play offline. Playback syncing is also a possibility with iCloud, which remembers where you left off in a movie or TV show; iTunes will now continue playing right where you left off, no matter what device you use.

iTunes 11 features Up Next, a simple way to see which songs are playing next. Up Next enables users to reorder, add, or skip songs at any point. The new, smaller MiniPlayer includes album art, adds Up Next, and makes searching easier. Apple is also boasting improved search within iTunes, as instant results from your library pop up as you type in the search field.  For Mac, iTunes 11 is being updated through the Mac App Store, an iTunes first. Expect some initial downloading time to be followed by behind-the-scenes hard drive grinding as your library is updated in the background after installation.

Notably, the Mac requirements for iTunes 11 are a computer with an Intel Core processor and 512MB of RAM, OS X version 10.6.8 or later, 400MB of available disk space, and a broadband Internet connection; Safari is no longer listed as a required item for iTunes. Windows system requirements are a PC with a 1 GHz Intel or AMD processor and 512 MB of RAM, Windows XP SP2/Vista/7/8, 400 MB of available disk space, and a broadband Internet connection, up from 250MB required for the prior PC version.

Jimi Hendrix’s People, Hell & Angels Featuring Previously Unreleased Completed Studio Recordings Coming March 5, 2013

People, Hell & Angels showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew restless, eager to develop new material with old friends and new ensembles. Outside the view of a massive audience that had established the Experience as rock’s largest grossing concert act and simultaneously placed two of his albums in the US Top 10 sales chart, Jimi was busy working behind the scenes to craft his next musical statement.

These twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements—horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar—Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music.   People, Hell & Angels presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician and producer.

People, Hell & Angels will be available Tuesday, March 5, 2013.

With an album title coined by Jimi Hendrix, People, Hell & Angels reveals some of Hendrix’s post-Experience ambitions and directions as he worked with new musicians–including the Buffalo Springfield’s Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, Billy Cox (with whom Hendrix had served in the 101st US Army Airborne and later played on the famed R & B ‘chitlin circuit’ together) and others–creating fresh and exciting sounds for the next chapter in his extraordinary career.

People, Hell & Angels is co-produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer and John McDermott. Kramer first met Hendrix at Olympic Studios in London in January 1967. Hendrix, who would have turned 70 on November 27 this year, developed a unique rapport with Kramer. As a result, Kramer engineered every album issued by the guitarist in his lifetime and recorded such famous Hendrix concerts as the Woodstock festival in August 1969. Since 1997, Kramer has teamed with Janie Hendrix and John McDermott to oversee the release of each Jimi Hendrix album issued by Experience Hendrix.

The dozen previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix performances premiering on People, Hell & Angels include “Earth Blues,” “Somewhere,” “Hear My Train A Comin’,” “Bleeding Heart,” “Baby Let Me Move You,” “Izabella,” “Easy Blues,” “Crash Landing,” “Inside Out,” “Hey Gypsy Boy,” “Mojo Man” and “Villanova Junction Blues.”

A musical companion piece and successor to 2010′s Valleys Of Neptune, the critically acclaimed album showcasing the artist’s final recordings with the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, People, Hell & Angels offers tantalizing new clues as to the direction Hendrix was considering for First Rays of The New Rising Sun, his planned double album sequel to 1968′s groundbreaking Electric Ladyland.

Unlike contemporaries such as the Beatles or Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix owned his songs and master recordings. He did not have to record his music at recording studios owned and operated by his record company.  Hendrix spent countless hours recording his new music at new, independent music studios such as New York’s Record Plant and the Hit Factory.  Hendrix was so focused on recording his music that, concurrent with nearly all of the sessions featured as part of People, Hell & Angels, he was underwriting the construction of his own recording facility–the state of the art Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village.

Robot Blueprints & The First Viral Video From Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim

Earlier today, the viral marketing for Guillermo del Toro’s new movie Pacific Rim officially kicked off with robot blueprints and the first viral video.

In the film, legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that would takes millions of lives and consumes humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day and is set to be released in 2D and 3D on July 12, 2013.

Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart Returning For X-Men: Days of Future Past

Director Bryan Singer tweeted this week that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will be reprising their respective roles as Magneto and Professor X in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and they’ll be joined by X-Men: First Class stars Michael Fassbender as Magneto, and James McAvoy as Professor X.

Days of Future Past is also the title of an X-Men comic book storyline from 1981, which alternated between a dystopian future in which mutants are living in internment camps, and the present day mutants working to prevent that future from happening.

Singer also officially announced that X-Men: First Class‘s Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are also returing as Mystique and Beast, respectively. Does this mean Rebecca Romijn and Kelsey Grammer will be playing their 21st century counterparts? All Singer would say in his final tweet: “More to come…”

Vader’s Little Princess By Jeffrey Brown

Vader’s Little Princess ($15) by Jeffrey Brown is an irresistibly funny follow-up to the breakout bestseller Darth Vader and Son.

Vader—Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire—now faces the trials, joys, and mood swings of raising his daughter Leia as she grows from a sweet little girl into a rebellious teenager.

Smart and funny illustrations give classic Star Wars moments a twist by bringing these iconic family relations together under one roof. From tea parties to teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2′s hologram, and making sure Leia doesn’t leave the house wearing only the a skirted metal bikini, Vader’s parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.

The 64 page hardcover will be released on May 1, 2013.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Blu-ray Collection Scheduled To Arrive on April 2, 2013

After delaying the release because of a legal dispute over the packaging, Marvel has announced an April 2nd release date for its 10-disc, six-movie “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One” Blu-ray collection. It was originally scheduled to arrive on Sept. 25.

Pre-sales began on Tuesday November 20th for the collection, which will include new content such as deleted scenes from each of the studio’s previous films and a look ahead to Phase Two, which begins in May with Iron Man 3 and continues with Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers 2.

Rimowa GmbH, the German manufacturer of luxury travel briefcases, sued Marvel and Disney’s Buena Vista Home Entertainment in August, claiming the packaging for the collection violated its trademark. Rimowa had provided the studio with an aluminum Topas attaché case for Samuel L. Jackson to carry in the film, but did not grant Marvel permission to manufacture replicas. “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One” will now be released in a different case but with the same glowing Tesseract cube. It retails for $219.
