    Jessica and Zayra: Not Quite Good Enough

    Till we went back and re-read Zac Crain's 1999 story here, we forgot that Jessica Simpson was signed to a record deal in 1997. So, we almost done here? It's been a while since we've had news about the big-screen version of Dallas, which is supposed to start shooting around here and in Louisiana some ... More >>

    "Where the Whiskey Drowns and the Beer Chases"

    Screw Rock Star: Supernova. We're thinkin' we prefer our karaoke, in person. Last Wednesday, we ventured into the world of live backing bands with Rock Star Karaoke hosted by the lovely and vivacious Jenn Nabb. Good thing we did when we did--the karaoksters got the boot from Lakewood Bar ... More >>

    Look at Little Sister

    Danny Moloshok / Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 Two Texans down--those would be, from left, former Dallasite Patrice Pike and current local Zayra Alvarez--and one to go. Tuesday night on Rock Star: Supernova, Patrice Pike jumped at the chance to perform an original song for the members of Supernova— ... More >>

    She's Gone

    Danny Moloshok/Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 Dallas' Zayra Alvarez is outta contention to join Supernova. We'd offer her our sympathies, if only we could figure out how that's supposed to be a bad thing. Those of you watching Rock Star: Supernova last night know that Zayra Watch 2006 has come to an end. ... More >>

    Just Let Her Go

    While the local girls flamed out on Rock Star: Supernova last night, Houston's Dilana was delightful. Those of us at the headquarters of Zayra Watch 2006 just about had a conniption fit last night when, during Rock Star: Supernova, the Latina warbler commited the sin of all sins: She attempted to ou ...

    Thank you, Dave Navarro, Thank You

    Danny Moloshok/Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 If we wanted our rock stars to be boring, Patrice, we'd listen to Radiohead. Last night's Rock Star: Supernova was a lesson in feisty dialogue with co-host Dave Navarro. The guy was definitely showing some post-break-up angst when he exchanged his usual stic ... More >>

    Rock Star Goes Opry

    Danny Moloshok / Blue Pixel for MBP 2006 The woman in me says this is one bad dress Zayra Alvarez is wearing. So, last week on no one's favorite show, Rock Star: Supernova, Zayra Alvarez landed in the bottom three after an atrocious rendition of The Kinks' "You Really Got Me"--and rightfully so, ba ...

    Rock Star 101: Know Thy Cr�e, GNR and Metallica

    Zayra, you have pretty much voted yerself off this island. Every time Rock Star: Supernova host Brook Burke says "the world's best unsigned rockers," I throw up in my mouth just a little bit. The last two weeks have been a horrible showing for what the world has to offer Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and ... More >>

    Dallas Rocks

    Former Dallasite Patrice Pike did well on Rock Star last night. So we hear. Heh. Stop weeping already. I know you wish you hadn't missed last night's inaugural episode of Rock Star: Supernova, but it's cool; I got your back. The girls offered the heaviest competition; most of the guys were way too w ... More >>

    Rock Star? OK, Whatever.

    Zayra Alvarez played the Dallas Observer Music Awards in 2005. That's much cooler than being on a TV show trying out for Tommy Lee's band. Seriously. Rock Star: Supernova debuts on CBS July 5 and features some dozen hopefuls vying for a spot in an "all-star" band with Tommy Lee and ex-of-Metallica J ... More >>
