Sound Advice 

by Inlander Staff & r & Say a Prayer for Me -- Now -- Former B2K singer and multi-platinum recording artist Omarion (just that, no last name) issued a press release through his recording label after the terror attacks in London on July 7, asking everyone to pray for him -- only him -- while making no mention of anyone victimized by the attacks or their grieving families. Astounding as it was, the appeal for spiritual help would have been somewhat understandable had O actually been injured in the attacks. But he wasn't. He was perfectly fine. In fact, he had been all the way on the other side of town when the attacks occurred. When asked why everyone around the world should work the singer into their prayers for the actual victims of the attacks, Omarion's publicist eloquently replied, "He wasn't hurt or anything, but just the fact that he was there and all that." Don't be so sure, O. Flying bomb debris can seriously ding Mercedes window glass.





Summer Lovin' -- Summer crushes are fun. But too much of a good thing can be scary. For instance, how many times can the Spokesman-Review's Isamu Jordan namedrop the same local band in the span of a month without sounding like he's gushing? So far, it's been three weeks and counting. Yep, summer love is in full bloom over at 7 with Jordan utilizing his weekly column two weeks in a row (7/1 and 7/8) to wax rhapsodic about a show he attended at the B-Side on June 26 featuring a fusion of Belt of Vapor and Weight. That's in addition to his chunk on 6/24 previewing the show. We like these guys too, but man, there are a lot of other fish in the sea. And keeping it casual while seeing other bands might be a healthier way for him to approach this relationship.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
