Farewell to "90210" (again). We just heard the TV series "90210" will end after its current fifth season. It feels premature as this was one of our favorite shows. The show's soundtrack has been incredibly fresh and catchy. "90210" also used some great songs from LoveCat's catalog. Listen for songs by Nick Fowler, Matt Keating, The Shake, and more. Although this series is ending, it feels inevitable that it will be rebooted in about 10 years. We look forward to it.

This Holiday season we give thanks to our talented writers and musicians who get better and better!

Hey, we know we don't get film & TV placements just because we look good. It's because we work with great bands from over 50 different countries around the world. And the music keeps getting better. The Genders new album is better than their last one (we insisted!). Stock Mashin's new hiphop joints are hotter than last year's (Stock got engaged). Now is better than before. So thank you to all our musician and writer friends, for your talents, enthusiasm and appreciation. "To all of the ladies and gentlemen who made the whole thing probable."

excited to work with Hans Inglish - rapper, producer, video artist, etc.

We're excited to sign a new deal with Hans Inglish, the NY-based rapper, singer, producer. It all started about a month ago when we were looking for some cool hiphop videos to license for a TV show. A manager turned us onto Hans Inglish's video for his song "Ah Yeah" and we were immediately hooked. Hans Inglish "Ah Yeah" video

the verdict is in. Dexter is finishing up a great season on Showtime. They killed it with the music this season! Loved hearing Rapidxfire, Eljuri and Latin Soul Syndicate!
NCIS Los Angeles is a procedural show with a great soundtrack. It really captures the L.A. streets from the Culver to WeHo to the Strip. Love it when the show used Bill Anschell or Los Straitjackets!

We've spent the last month watching the new Fall TV shows, looking for new classics and rock driven shows. "Nashville," "666 Park Ave" and "Revolution" are new drama shows that have caught our eye. "Neighbors" is a comedy with great music. Will post on more shows soon.

in praise of BBC mini-series

How many times have you wished that your favorite film was longer? (A sequel isn't the same because it comes 2 years or more later.)

Welcome to the BBC 6-hour dramas. This format is unique to England, and never caught on here in the U.S. It's resulted in some of the best TV shows of all time. In almost all cases, they're based on great novels. Here's our top 4 list:

1. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
2. A Very British Coup
3. Cambridge Spies
4. House Of Cards

What's your favorite?

The power of music is still most under-appreciated.
Try to imagine today's "tech revolution" without music.

Computers in the home would not be 1/2 as fun without mp3s & videos
No one would need high-speed internet from cable companies for downloading
No one would buy CD burners or blank CDs.
Tower Records would be open.
Apple Computers would be a division of IBM.

Doesn't it feel like someone owes rock music a couple of billion dollars?
