Neil Young has posted a live recording of a new song to his official site. It’s an impassioned protest song in the tradition of his classic late 60s and early 70s work called “Who’s Gonna Stand Up.” Check out the live recording below, which was recorded at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on July 13 during a show with Crazy Horse.
“Who’s gonna stand up and save the earth” Young repeats, calling out the corporations and politicians believed to be destroying the environment. Fracking, for one, is mentioned by name in he lengthy, folk-rock singalong.
"Who’s Gonna Stand Up" was inspired by the documentary Under the Influence. On Young’s official site, the singer-songwriter quotes the film’s synopsis: “Under the guise of democracy, huge global corporations have purchased our politicians and are writing laws that poison our planet and dismantle our democratic process.”
Young has a handful of fates planned over the next several weeks, beginning with a Set. 13 performance at Farm Aid in Raleigh, N.C.
Young’s 2014 studio album, a covers collection called A Letter Home, was released April 19 and peaked at 13 on the Billboard 200.
Just recently found out about fracking causing earthquakes... bananas! This definitely should be a bigger issue.
This story has it all. Stretch Hummers. Booze. A right hook. And a former vice presidential candidate screaming, “Do you know who I am?”
Just another Saturday night in Anchorage with the Palins?
Several Alaska bloggers reported a brawl at a house party over the weekend for the Iron Dog snowmobile race (that Todd Palin has won four times). And it allegedly involved the former first family of Alaska.
“On Saturday, September 6, 2014 just before midnight Anchorage police responded to a report of a verbal and physical altercation taking place between multiple subjects outside of a residence located on the 900 block of Harbor Circle. A preliminary investigation by police revealed that a party had been taking place at a nearby residence and a fight had broken out between multiple subjects outside of the residence. At the time of the incident, none of the involved parties wanted to press charges and no arrests were made. However, the case is still an active investigation and is being reviewed by APD and the Municipal Prosecutors Office. Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident. Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party.”
Here’s the salacious scoop from Alaska political blogger Amanda Coyne:
“A nice, mellow party, until the Palin’s show up. There’s beer, of course, and maybe other things. Which is all fine, but just about the time when some people might have had one too many, a Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. Track isn’t happy with this guy, the story goes. There’s words, and more. The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn’t. At this point, he’s up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, “Don’t you know who I am!” And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!” No, it’s what happens when the former First Family of Alaska comes knocking. As people were leaving in a cab, Track was seen on the street, shirtless, flipping people off, with Sarah right behind him, and Todd somewhere in the foreground, tending to his bloody nose.”
Is this real life or a scene from a Real Housewives show? If the above account is real … oh my.
Meanwhile, because the drama never ceases, the next night, Bristol Palin returned to her home in Wasilla to find a stalker in her driveway, who was arrested and charged with felony stalking.
Somewhere, producers at TLC are kicking themselves that “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” isn’t still on the air.
UPDATE: Anchorage Police Department’s communications director Jennifer Castro confirmed to the Loop what others have reported that there was a fight at a party where the Palins were in attendance.
Writer/director Lisandro Alonso and actor Viggo Mortensen pose at "Jauja" Press Conference - Arrivals during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival at Storys Building on September 11, 2014 in Toronto, Canada.
In this episode, “The Garrison Commander”, Claire encounters Captain Black Jack Randall for the first time since their first meeting.
Previously on Outlander, Claire went on the road with the MacKenzies collecting rent. During that time, she had a chance to witness the conflict with the British from the point of view of the Scottish. She also learns that Dougal is raising money for the Jacobite cause. She comes to see the men around her in a different light and becomes more understanding of their plight.
This episode picks up right where the last episode left off with Lieutenant Foster questioning Claire if she is being held against her will by the MacKenzies. Initially she finds some comfort being among her own people again since crossing through the stones. She hopes that she’ll be able to return to Inverness and travel to the stones after she has talked to the commander at the garrison. Her situation becomes tenuous when Black Jack appears, and she once again finds herself under suspicion. Soon she is the subject of Black Jack’s interrogation and learns his true nature.
The star of this episode is Tobias Menzies who portrays both Frank and Black Jack. Frank comes across as a dull, although perfectly nice and unassuming, man while Black Jack is very dark and twisted individual. Claire can’t help but look for signs of Frank in Black Jack. They share the same face and voice but that is where the similarities end. The viewers, and Claire, will see plainly that both men are nothing alike. Tobias Menzies depicts Black Jack as a man who it is very easy to hate.
Here are a few teasers:
-The English officers make no secret about how they feel about being sent to Scotland and the locals.
-Dougal proposes a solution to a problem.
-Claire sees Black Jack with an item that she recognizes as a family heirloom that Frank treasured.
-Black Jack promises to reveal his true nature to Claire. The interrogation is an intense battle of wits.
-Claire's medical skills are needed.
-Claire learns something about Jamie.

So excited for this episode (this was the critics' favorite)! Which part of it are you anticipating most?
Bradley Cooper won’t get a makeover to star in “The Elephant Man” on Broadway. But the Booth Theatre will.
The outside of the historic W. 45th St. house is already tricked out with a marquee that reads, in a Victorian-era font, “Hideous! Deformed! Grotesque!”
It’s part of the sexiest man alive’s idea to engage people’s imaginations before they set foot inside the theater to watch the revival of Bernard Pomerance’s 1979 Tony winner about Joseph Merrick, the deformed 19th-century Brit evoked in the title.
“Bradley called me and said, ‘I have this idea of making the world of the theater the way it would have been in Merrick’s time,” says Drew Hodges, president of SpotCo, the advertising agency handling the show. “He wanted to make (the Booth) feel like one of the attractions of that time.”
So exterior walls and doors will be covered in artwork reminiscent of a 19th-century circus sideshow. Movable period lamp posts will stand outside in the coming weeks. Vintage light bulbs will dot marquees to add to the period vibe.
Cooper’s name will be above the title(legend!) — but you won’t find any pictures of the 39-year-old “American Hustle” and “Silver Linings Playbook” star, his baby blues or his buff bod.
“He didn’t want photographs of himself,” says director Scott Ellis, who’s been working with Cooper to finalize the exterior decoration. “He’s not splattering himself outside the theater.”
Cooper, who is making his second appearance on Broadway, is sharing signage with co-stars Patricia Clarkson, who plays a kind actress who champions Merrick’s cause; and Alessandro Nivola, who plays a doctor caring for the unfortunate man. Like Cooper, they reprise their roles from a 2012 Williamstown Theatre Festival run.
“We talked about the sideshow and about creating a feeling (to get) people looking and thinking about the world before the play begins,” says Ellis.
On stage, unlike the 1980 movie adaptation, Merrick is played without prosthetics. The audience imagines terrible maladies as they are enumerated with clinical detail.
Bradley Cooper graced the glossy GQ in January but his good looks won't be plastered outside the Booth Theatre. Peggy Sirota/GQ Bradley Cooper graced the glossy GQ in January but his good looks won't be plastered outside the Booth Theatre.
No one’s talking about the price tag on this elaborate exterior work, but a theater insider ballparks the figure at around $100,000.
“Front of houses are things you do later when your show is a success,” says Hodges. “Bradley was so passionate about setting the stage, he got everyone excited.”
As fashion designer and upcoming Dancing With the Stars contestant Betsey Johnson presented her spring 2015 collection, some people recognized a few Bravolebrities working the famous runway.
Betsey Johnson‘s fashion shows are always more like a party, and that proved to be the case at her prenup-inspired show on Sept. 10 during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City — and those in attendance were in for a surprise when famous faces came down the runway!
Seeing a celebrity or famous model on the catwalk isn’t rare, but it isn’t everyday that a reality star gets to strut her stuff, that is, until now! Betsey tapped three members of The Real Housewives to model, sending Cynthia Bailey, Kristen Taekman, and Camille Grammer down the runway.
"My theme was all about Modern LOVE and marriage!" the always creative designer tweeted to fans Wednesday. "What a day!"
The gals seemed to be having so much fun as they rocked the over-the-top designs, which were perfectly paired with bold makeup, wigs, and even a veil. From sexy lingerie-type looks to bold gowns and dresses that evoked memories of prom pictures from the 80s, the collection mainly consisted of fancy frocks and possessed the eccentric yet feminine vibe we’ve all come to expect from the designer.
First up was the beautiful Cynthia who took a break from filming Real Housewives of Atlanta to star in the show.
"Got my life walking in @xobetseyjohnson today," she instagrammed. "Had so much fun #onceamodel….@Calibere @thebaileyagency"
Not to be outdone, Kristen also looked quite fab as she walked in a puffy wedding dress.
Johnson described the look as "someone's getting married," even though a "prenup" necklace was proudly displayed around the model's neck.
"Got to walk in a wedding dress today for Betseys show," the Real Housewives of New York star captioned on Instagram. "#Stillgotit #RHONY @XoBetseyJohnson #BJprenup"
But the Real Housewife who got the most attention from the audience was the one and only Camille.
Described by the designer as a "true Jersey Girl," Grammer stepped onto the runway in a sheer and skimpy dress.
"In NYC for fashion week," she tweeted before showtime. "Getting ready to walk the runway for Betsey Johnson. So excited! At my age and after cancer...A bit nervous."
On the heels of The National ENQUIRER’s report about his cheating confessions, RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained jaw-dropping video footage that shows Ayers describing his sordid affairs in excruciating detail. Watch as he admits, “I’ve been known to cheat … [and] hurt Vicki.”
The sleazy footage was filmed in a Las Vegas hotel room, as The ENQUIRER reported, by a business associate who recorded the exchange to protect his interests. With a hidden camera rolling, Ayers let loose about the grimy reality of his on-off relationship with Gunvalson.
“Did I mark on my calendar if we were off today or on today?” he says of Gunvalson. “I’ve been known to cheat…Bottom line, it hurt Vicki to know even if we weren’t together that I fucked somebody else. That hurt her.”
Admitting to a “fuck” with a prostitute named “Maya,” as well as a fling with a woman named “Jewels,” Ayers says, “I didn’t mean to cross the line. I didn’t know. I thought it was appropriate.”
Ayers claims that after some of his indiscretions came to light, Gunvalson called him saying “Lose my number. I never want to talk to you again.”
But earlier this month, Ayers was shown sitting proudly by Gunvalson’s side at the RHOC reunion, as the two discussed moving in together.

Emma Stone looks absolutely stunning on the red carpet at the Magic in the Moonlight premiere held on Thursday evening (September 11) at the UGC Cine Cite Bercy in Paris, France.
Not crazy over this look
South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of culpable homicide after the judge found he killed his girlfriend by mistake.
Judge Thokozile Masipa said the athlete acted "negligently" when he fired shots through a toilet door but in the "belief that there was an intruder".
She said the state had failed to prove he intended to kill Reeva Steenkamp.
He was also found guilty on a charge of negligently handling a firearm that went off in a restaurant.
South Africa's prosecuting authority said it was "disappointed" Pistorius was not convicted of murder but said it would wait until after sentencing to decide whether to appeal.
The BBC's Andrew Harding, in court, says that following the verdicts, Pistorius sat, rubbed his face and slumped briefly forward.
There was not much emotion in court because everyone knew that verdict was coming, our correspondent adds.
It leaves the disgraced sprinter facing up to 15 years in jail, although legal experts suggest seven to 10 years is more likely when sentence is passed in a couple of weeks.
The double amputee had denied murdering Ms Steenkamp after a row on Valentine's Day last year, saying he shot her by mistake.
With this the judge agreed, saying "it cannot be said that the accused did not entertain a genuine belief that there was an intruder".
But she said: "The accused knew there was a person behind the toilet door, he chose to use a firearm.
"I am of the view the accused acted too hastily and used too much force. It is clear his conduct is negligent."
Pistorius was convicted on an unrelated firearms charge - negligently handling a firearm that went off in a crowded restaurant.
He was acquitted of another charge of firing a gun in public, through the sunroof of a car, and of a charge of illegal possession of ammunition in the home where he killed Ms Steenkamp.

In Depression-era North Carolina, the future of George Pemberton's timber empire becomes complicated when it is learned that his wife, Serena, cannot bear children.
As a high schooler, it couldn’t be easy to perform in front of an audience that included Suzy Menkes, Olivier Zahm, and more — but none of them seemed the least bit nervous. (“I hyped them up a bit,” Sevigny told the Cut after the show.) The result was touchingly sincere, a grounded counterpoint to so many other Fashion Week events. It also seemed to reimagine traditional high-school hierarchies, making the artists, the poets, and the performers the coolest girls in school. (Many of the women also wore flat-brimmed hats that read "TRI-STATE represent," an organization that Sevigny invented.)
Sevigny was clear that this collection, too, was for a woman whose personality was larger than her clothes. “I just feel like so often, you see a girl and you say, she’s wearing blah-blah-blah, that’s so instantly recognizable,” she said. “I wanted to make clothes that would allow the girl to shine through.”
She explained that she was inspired by her time living in the East Village, when she used to see students from Grace Church School walking around the neighborhood in their uniforms.“I was always envious of them and the simplicity — how easy it would be to wake up every day and wear that uniform,” she said. “And yet, how I could see individual personalities coming through even in that.”

She also retweeted various fans that were impacted by her:
Have you ever had a celebrity speaker at your school? We had Rudy (inspiration of the self-titled movie) and it was so-so but idc about football.
As a nation, we used to be really into codes and messages hidden inside of American symbolism, which turned Dan Brown’s 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code into a mega-bestseller. But times have changed, and now we’re totally into the government treating our privacy like garbage. So it makes perfect sense that 20th Century Fox, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s Imagine Entertainment are heading back in Brown’s library to turn his techno-thriller Digital Fortress into a TV series. Don’t tell the government I said that about them.
ABC has given Digital Fortress a put pilot, meaning the network has to show audiences a pilot, with a stiff penalty attached if they don’t. And given how well adaptations of Brown’s work have done on the big screen, it’s silly to think ABC will balk on this topical project. Unless someone stops them for saying too much.
Digital Fortress centers on the cat-and-mouse relationship between an NSA cryptographer named Susan Fletcher and a former NSA employee named Ensei Tankado, who is putting the government’s most consequential secrets up for auction. He has his own stiff penalties attached if he should be killed. There are double-crossers and twists throughout, and it deals with a lot of – you guessed it – questions of governmental superiority when it comes to information.
The pilot is being written by Outlaw Country’s Rachel Abramowitz and Josh Goldin, the latter of which also co-wrote Sam Raimi’s Darkman. It is going to make the premise sexy, because coding is sexy. Guys, it seems like someone sexy, a programmer perhaps, has taken over this sexy site and is making me sexy write this.
Will Ron Howard get directly involved with the pilot? He’s currently on the road to directing Tom Hanks once more for the Brown adaptation Inferno. That’s been a slow-moving project, given Howard’s work on the waterbound drama Heart of the Sea, but it's still possible that he can fit a pilot into his schedule.
Iggy Azalea's legal team now says it may indeed be her in that sex tape ... but there's also a chance she was under 18 when it was shot.
It's a big change from what her people told TMZ just 2 days ago ... that NO Iggy sex tape exists. Now it sounds like it does ... but with legal peril.
We broke the story ... a video purportedly showing Azalea and an ex-boyfriend is being shopped to porn giant, Vivid Entertainment.
But then Iggy's lawyers now tell us ... any sex video would be the work of a "spurned business suitor" -- aka the ex-BF -- who's just trying to damage her image and career out of revenge. They also told us any footage was possibly shot "without her knowledge or consent" ... kind of a weird statement -- either it was or it wasn't. The lawyers also say it's possible it was shot when she was a minor.
So, let's review Iggy's sex tape position: It's NOT me ... it MIGHT be me ... IF it's me, an evil ex-business partner is out to get me ... and I might be jail bait ... so, I dare you to release it.
Director Sophie Barthes'Madame Bovary has landed a U.S. home with the newly reorganized Millennium Entertainment.
Starring Mia Wasikowska ♥, the movie made its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival and will play at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 10. Madame Bovary, which has drawn mixed reviews, also stars Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans and Ezra Miller.
Wasikowska plays Emma Bovary, a young, beautiful woman from northern France who marries the town doctor in order to escape a life of swine farming. But she soon grows tired of her husband and enters into a series of ill-fated love affairs.
WME helped secure financing for the film and represents U.S. rights, while Radiant Films International is handling foreign sales.
The deal for Madame Bovary comes days after the management team of Millennium Entertainment, led by Bill Lee, and private investment firm Virgo Investment Group bought out the stake owned by Avi Lerner's NuImage/Millennium Entertainment. Millennium Entertainment will be renamed in the coming weeks.
Marino and Joe Neurauter produced Madame Bovary in association with Barthes via her Aden Film banner and Aleph Motion Picture's Jaime Mateus-Tique.
Madame Bovary Sells in U.S. to Millennium Entertainment
A Columbia University graduate, Sophie Barthes was born in France and grew up in the Middle East and South America. Barthes has just completed an English adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary with Mia Wasikowska ♥, Rhys Ifans, Paul Giamatti and Ezra Miller. In 2010, her directorial feature-film debut, Cold Souls with Giamatti and Emily Watson, was released in the US
by Samuel Goldwyn, and was also distributed worldwide. Prior to its theatrical release, Cold Souls played in competition at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and went on to play in more than thirty international film festivals.
Barthes has completed a residency at the Sundance Screenwriters & Directors Lab and was named one of Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film." She is a recipient of the Annenberg Foundation Film Fellowship.
Madame Bovary will play at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10, 11, and 12.
WaH: Please give us your own description of the film.
SB: It’s an adaptation of Madame Bovary. My intention was to respect the spirit of Flaubert’s novel, to honor his acute sense of aesthetics and beauty (through costumes and production design), while creating a modern film in terms of style, acting, cinematography, editing, and music.
WaH: What drew you to Flaubert's novel?
SB: Madame Bovary is one my favorite novels. Emma Bovary will always be an enigma, but as the years pass, I feel that I understand her better. She has a violent nostalgia, almost an infantile nostalgia, to be understood by the men surrounding her. I like her relentless fight for independence, her rebellion against the mediocre, and her quest for the sublime, even if she burns her wigs in the process. I like that Flaubert never judges her morally for her self-destructiveness, for her desperate attempt to satisfy her wildest desires and appetites.
As Baudelaire said it so beautifully, Emma Bovary is an androgynous character. She cannot be reduced to a gender or a sociological type. She represents something bigger than herself. That was the genius of Flaubert: the ability to combine the general and the particular.
WaH: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?
SB: Making this film has been Sisyphean. It was difficult to put the financing together. But the whole team [did] incredible [work], and I think it paid off. I had a very precise idea of how I wanted this film to look and feel, which required shooting in a specific region in France, collaborating with French heads of departments for costumes and production design to recreate the 19th-century provincial France as authentically as possible to honor Flaubert’s memory.
WaH: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theatre?
SB: More than “think,” I would like them to leave the theater with a feeling, an emotion. I also hope that they would want to rediscover or read the novel for the first time. Madame Bovary is timeless. It is not just about the female condition in France in the 1840s. It’s not a simple cautionary tale. Emma is more than a character; she gives us an insight into human nature. With Emma, we are diving into the complexities of Flaubert’s psyche. I think that Flaubert's famous sentence, “Madame Bovary, c’est moi” ("Madame Bovary, she is me"), in reality means, “ Madame Bovary, c’est nous” ("Madame Bovary, she is us"), in our modern incapacity to live a “good-enough” life.
WaH: What advice do you have for other female directors?
SB: Never give up. I do believe it is harder for female directors. I have been lucky to receive support from the Sundance Institute for my first film. I’m eternally grateful for their support. I think you need to be surrounded artistically and follow your intuition -- always follow your intuition.
WaH: What’s the biggest misconception about you and your work?
SB: I have no idea. I’ve only made short films and two features, which are very different. One is a surreal comedy, and the other is a period tragedy. I'm curious to know what misconceptions this could trigger.
WaH: How did you get your film funded? Share some insights to how you got the film made.
SB: European funds. It’s an independent film, so the financing is largely dependent on the prestige of the cast and foreign sales.
WaH: Name your favorite women directed film and why.
I love Cléo from 5 to 7 by Agnes Varda. I love its simplicity, tonality, poetry, atmosphere, sensuality, lightness, and sadness. I also admire the work of Claire Denis and Vera Chytilova.
TIFF Women Directors: Meet Sophie Barthes - Madame Bovary
Just a quick reminder of Mia's flawlessness before you enter the post.
This could officially be the best celebrity pairing of all time…Ian Thorpe and Ricky Martin.
Yep, a source is claiming the new couple have signed a half million dollar magazine deal telling the world they are in love.
Peter Ford, an Australian celebrity commentator, broke the jaw dropping news on Twitter earlier today.
He posted on Twitter: "Ian Thorpe ready to share even more private stuff!!.He & bon bon shaking mate agree to huge mag/photo deal."
He then added:"Happy times for Ricky Martin and Ian Thorpe & they're about to tell the world in a mag deal."
Flashback to July this year and 31-year-old swimmer Ian came out during a TV interview with Michael Parkinson.
He stated: "I'm comfortable saying I’m a gay man. And I don’t want people to feel the same way I did. You can grow up, you can be comfortable and you can be gay."
He later revealed that Ricky, 42, had helped him through the brave decision to go public. Yep, we had a whiff of a romance…even back then.
The Voice mentor has been single since January after splitting from longtime partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella, who he has two children with.
Either party are yet to confirm and details about which magazine are scarce…but TheFIX has our fingers crossed that this is latest real life romance out of showbizland.
Do you own an iTunes account? Congratulations. You also own at least one (quite possibly only one) U2 album.
Apple marked the iPhone 6 launch by slipping a copy of the ageing Irish band's latest album into every account, deliberately infecting gadgets with some people's idea of musical malware.
Think of it as a surprise Christmas present from a relative who doesn't know you very well.
Or knows you really well, if you like U2.
If you DO like U2, great. It's a Beautiful Day* and you'll probably find Songs of Innocence an uplifting collection of soft-rock ballads.
If you don't, you'll probably want to get rid of it, pronto.
The third option is that you don't know you've got it yet, in which case you're in for a massive shock when you stick your phone on shuffle.
So how can you get rid of the offending album if it's driving you to the Edge* of War*?
If you have your computer handy, getting rid of the album is the Sweetest Thing*. Simply sync your phone with your iTunes, go to the music tab, and untick the album.
If you don't, you'll have to go through and delete every track individually, so Get on Your Boots* and get going.
Go into your music. Select albums. Select Songs of Innocence, then swipe each track left individually to reveal the delete option. There are 12, so this is the gift from Apple that keeps on giving.
It's a nice thought. Having said that, next time you want to give us a present, Apple, we'd rather have a voucher. Or just some cash.
Incidentally, Songs of Innocence is the band's 13th studio album, and their first since 2009. It's out to buy for non-Apple users on October 13.
*These are U2 puns. And we are sorry for them.
The BBC throwing shade at U2?
