Published

I’m a Celebrity‘s Ant and Dec have teased a “really strong” line-up for the upcoming series.

For the first time in its history, the ITV show is set to leave the Australian jungle and instead broadcast from Gwyrch Castle in North Wales, a relocation brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.

While appearing on Steve & Karen’s Breakfast Show on TFM this morning (September 15), the Geordie duo were unable to comment on any specifics about the celebrity line-up, but they did promise that “the casting looks really strong so far”.

One star who’s been tipped to take part is Selling Sunset‘s Christine Quinn, which the presenters were unable to confirm or deny.

Other rumoured personalities include Scott Disick, Charles Ingram (the Who Wants to be a Millionaire winner who became the focus of the stage show Quiz and its recent TV adaptation), and former Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon.

Also on the radio show, Ant and Dec were asked why they couldn’t find a location for the series in their home city, Newcastle.

Ant revealed that they’d recommended plenty of locations in the Tyneside area, saying: “We tried. We pitched a lot of castles, don’t worry.”

With host Steve admitting the relocation will help bring new life to the show, Dec replied: “There’s real curiosity over what it’s gonna be like, particularly for us.”

I’m a Celebrity will return later this year on ITV.

What is this special tradition- Autumn Equinox? Here is everything you need to know.

Published

Everyone is aware of Autumn Equinox, whether it be Mayans, Druids, Astronomers, meteorologists, or the Anishinabe. And for those who do not know, it is the time at which the sun begins to fade and we have lesser sunlight and longer autumn and the time for winter nights start.

On September 22, 9:30 – 10:21 am the Autumn Equinox is set to begin. Thus, the fall will begin in the northern hemisphere whereas, in the southern Hemisphere it’ll be spring. Equinox actually means equal night in Latin. Thus, the northern hemisphere will be experiencing 12 hours day and 12 hours night. While this thing seems pretty normal but it happens only twice, once during the Spring/Summer Equinox and Autumn/Winter Equinox.

However, it is not the time of actual winter when people feels cold. The weather will just be quite pleasant.

According to Google, if we look into a deeper level, as per the conscious remainder blog the equinox is something like a thought that could be represented. We could consider it as a period of troublesome situation before entering the light from the dark or the struggle between life and death. Thus, there are a lot of things we can metaphorically compare to with Autumn equinox.

As mentioned above, the day and nights are equal during this equinox thus, it could be understood as the sun’s journey to actually get at that place and this ultimately is significant to the universe’s journey.

Thus, we get to learn that we should own the direction we are heading towards and continuously try to bring balance in our lives. It would be nowhere wrong to say that the mother nature tries to make us learn a lot of things just with the change in seasons.

Prince’s Estate Released A Video Of The Late Singer Performing With Miles Davis On New Year’s Eve In 1987

Published

While Purple Rain stands as Prince‘s most popular and recognizable album, many will crown his 1987 album, Sign O’ The Times as his best body of work. Since its release three decades ago, the album has been praised and celebrated time and time again, with the most recent example its 2017 induction into the Grammy Hall Of Fame. Another example dates back to 2004 when Rolling Stone labeled it “the most complete example of [Prince’s] artistry’s breadth, and arguably the finest album of the 1980s.”

Thirty-one years after its release, the late singer’s estate released a super deluxe edition of the album along with a two-hour Prince performance on New Year’s Eve in 1987. The show, which was a benefit concert for The Minnesota Coalition For The Homeless, took place at Paisley Park and sports an incredibly smooth performance alongside jazz legend Miles Davis.

The performance was released alongside the super deluxe version of Sign O’ The Times which includes a boatload of unreleased songs and edits to Prince’s original work, amounting to 65 additions and alterations in total. Among the new additions fans can find “Can I Play With U?,” which stands as Prince and Davis’ only collaboration from their respective careers, and the full remastered audio from his 1987 show in Utrecht, Netherlands.

You can watch the two-hour performance featuring Miles Davis, who appears at the 1:43:00 mark, in the video above. The super deluxe edition of Sign O’ The Times is out now via NMG/Warner. Get it here.

Soundgarden Members Talk ‘Floating, Trippy’ Brandi Carlile Collaboration

Published

“In an evening packed with exceptional guests and many amazing performances, Brandi’s was amongst the standouts,” Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil tells Rolling Stone of Brandi Carlile’s appearance at the 2019 Chris Cornell “I Am the Highway” tribute concert, where she sang “Black Hole Sun” alongside an all-star band that included Peter Frampton and the surviving members of Soundgarden: Thayil, drummer Matt Cameron, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Ben Shepherd.

Soundgarden’s one-time performance with the Seattle-raised country singer resonated so much with the group that when Carlile, in her role as Record Store Day Ambassador, approached the band about recording something in the studio, they jumped at the chance. “The studio collaboration sounded like a super fun project and a great opportunity for Ben, Kim and myself to play music again with Brandi,” Cameron says.

The result is A Rooster Says, a 12-inch vinyl featuring Carlile tackling a pair of Soundgarden classics backed by the surviving members of the legendary grunge band. For the single, Carlile and her longtime collaborators “the Twins,” Phil and Tim Hanseroth, reentered Seattle’s London Bridge Studio — where Soundgarden’s Louder Than Love and the Temple of the Dog album were recorded — in November 2019 with Cameron, Thayil and Shepherd to record Superunknown‘s “Black Hole Sun” (a studio take on their powerful Cornell tribute performance) and an electrifying version of Badmotorfinger‘s “Searching With My Good Eye Closed.”

“That was Brandi’s choice and it was a good one,” Cameron said. “‘Searching With My Good Eye Closed’ is one of Chris’ greatest songs, it has so much depth. It’s a colossus. Hearing Brandi and the twins completely rock the fuck out on that tune was amazing. I love how it turned out. Kim’s solo is pretty incredible too.”

Thayil added, “I assume that Brandi chose to record ‘Searching With My Good Eye Closed’ because it’s a beautiful song that is accommodating of her vocal style. I’m really happy that she chose this song, because her interpretation is absolutely amazing. It’s beautifully emotive, floating and trippy. Her version sent shivers down my spine.”

While the band was tempted to countrify their music — Cornell “absolutely loved” Johnny Cash’s country take on the band’s “Rusty Cage,” Cameron said — due to time constraints, Carlile and Soundgarden kept their A Rooster Says renditions closer to the songs’ original form.

When A Rooster Says — currently only available in its physical Record Store Day form — was announced earlier this year, Seattle native Carlile said that she remembered encountering Soundgarden in the Nineties at London Bridge. “Soundgarden were just gods to us back then. Total pioneers and unreachable to us in every way,” Carlile said at the time. “We went about making our demos and cleaning the studio when we couldn’t afford the bill never knowing that in November of 2019 we would go back to London Bridge and RECORD TWO SONGS WITH THEM!! [Chris Cornell] was as great as a human singer can get and now he’s an angel. Thank you Kim, Ben, and Matt. I’ll never forget this day for as long as I live.”

“We felt honored that she asked us to take part in her Record Store Day project,” Cameron added. “We had a blast. I think most people assume the three of us over and done with since Chris passed away, but that’s not the case. It’s nice to know that people still want to hear us play together.”

Thayil was similarly enthusiastic about another collaboration with Carlile, as well as another opportunity to play with his Soundgarden band mates. “It was so natural and fun to play with Brandi, and the twins, and playing with Ben and Matt is second nature for me,” the guitarist said. “Any opportunity to play with all of them again whether live or in the studio, I would embrace without hesitation.”
