The Flaming Lips Make Another Movie
The last time The Flaming Lips front man, Wayne Coyne, set out to make a film, it took him seven years. After finally being able to release Christmas On Mars in 2008, it sounds like Coyne has caught the film-making bug. He's just announced his plans of making another film to Billboard, but will this one take as long? He gives us an ambivalent answer as he goes into...

Bonnaroo 2010 will be revealing itself to the nation (or world if you're a international traveler and music fanatic) slowly but sure on February 9. In fact, it's going to be dragged out so much that Bonnaroo has called the line up unveiling an event - a "virtual event for Bonnaroo fans" are their exact words. If you'd like to discuss the line up as it is announced chunk by...

Today I saw a video for The Flaming Lips' Silver Trembling Fetus Christmas tree ornament. Lead singer, Wayne Coyne, even says it is rumored, but not scientifically proven, to make you...

Check out The Flaming Lips new two minute song "I Can Be A Frog" with a hot girl in a bikini dancing around like a mad woman pretending to be all the things he's singing about. I for one am on the fence about this video. Some people are calling it "pure imagination" and others "pointless." I get that The Flaming Lips create work that inspires you to use your imagination, but...
