A new podcast series has emerged from the east end of Toronto, featuring two of the sharpest music pundits in all of the GTA.
The Deaf Ears Podcast is hosted by Cam Gordon (Peace/Chart) and Ryan B. Patrick (Exclaim!), and offers a unique listening experience for Canadian music fans. Each episode chooses a singular musical act to celebrate and skewer, as Cam and Ryan riff madly on their relative merits, the quality of their music videos, their eating habits and anything else that comes to mind. “The Deaf Ears M.O. is fairly simple,” says Cam. “We’re trying to replicate the sound and feel of two friends sitting in a bar, talking about music in an unstructured, freeform and half drunk fashion. It’s basically Behind the Music for people who hate Behind the Music.”
To give you a taste of what to expect, Episode 4 focuses on Kim Mitchell with Cam and Ryan debating whether the video for “Patio Lanterns” was racist while Episode 3 targets George Clinton and the amazing fact he’s still alive. Aerosmith, David Bowie and Public Enemy are just a few of the other artists who come under attack and the pair promise regular updates as the series morphs and grows.
The first eight episodes of The Deaf Ears Podcast are currently available for download at http://depodcast.wordpress.com with new episodes posted weekly this fall and beyond.

TRON Video Game Portfolio Release Date Set for December 7, 2010 in North America
Disney Interactive Studios announced a collector’s edition of TRON: Evolution will be available at retail. The TRON: Evolution collector’s edition package will include an exclusive TRON light cycle collectible based on the in-game model from TRON: Evolution. The light cycle model is being created by renowned collectibles manufacturer Sideshow Collectibles. Available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the collector’s edition will be packaged in a special protective casing with a drawer for the game.
The company also announced December 7 as the North American release date for all its TRON: Evolution video games on popular platforms. TRON: Evolution games will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system, Wii™, Windows PC, Nintendo DS™ and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system. The Wii game’s title is TRON: Evolution – Battle Grids.
The TRON: Evolution collector’s edition will only be available in limited quantities and will have a suggested retail price of $129.99 in North America. The collector’s edition will be available on December 7 with the rest of the TRON: Evolution video game portfolio before the “TRON: Legacy” film hits U.S. theaters on December 17 in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D.
Developed by Propaganda Games, Disney Interactive Studios’ action and role-playing game studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, TRON: Evolution is set during the era between the two TRON films, “TRON” (1982) and “TRON: Legacy.” TRON: Evolution conveys the story of significant events within the TRON mythology. The game features an epic adventure across a massive digital world filled with high-mobility disc-based combat and advanced light cycles.
TRON: Evolution is one of the keys to unlocking the TRON mythology. The game’s story takes place before the “TRON: Legacy” events and provides insight into the film’s past. As an integrated entertainment experience, the film will reference elements of the game’s story. Fans will want to play the game to learn more about the TRON mythology seen in the film, but each entertainment experience will stand on its own.
Disney Mobile’s TRON app (www.itunes.com/app/tron) for the iPhone® and iPod® touch is free to download and features an all-new version of the classic Tanks game from the Tron Arcade. The app also features “TRON: Legacy” trailers, pre-sale order information for the TRON: Evolution game, and it will be updated as the premiere of the “TRON: Legacy” film in December draws closer with additional video, music, and free and premium games.

A Couple Bars from YShaws expressing his feelings on August 20, 2010. Produced By Silent Heat Productions
Partners In Health (PIH), The Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF) and Grammy-winning reggae band Steel Pulse announced the release of Hold On [4 Haiti], a new song composed by lead singer David Hinds and recorded to raise funds for the solar electrification of health clinics for PIH in Haiti. The clinics, operated by Zanmi Lasante, are located in the remote mountain highlands and do not have access to the electric grid. In the aftermath of the January earthquake in Port-au-Prince, the facilities have experienced a rise in demand for health-care services, countered by dangerous fluctuations in fuel supplies needed to operate their generators.
Steel Pulse has launched a new website, http://www.holdon4haiti.org , where the song is available for download on a donation basis. One hundred percent of donations received will benefit Haiti.
Explained Mr. Hinds: “Because the initial media coverage has waned considerably, we want to revitalize the focus on Haiti’s plight. We wrote Hold On [4 Haiti] to support the people of Haiti through the work being done by the Solar Electric Light Fund and Partners In Health. We’ve got to make a real difference on the ground – that’s what this project is all about.”
“Steel Pulse’s Hold On [4 Haiti] is a song of hope,” said SELF’s executive director, Bob Freling. “Our hope is that we can solar electrify all 12 hospitals and health centers for Partners In Health in Haiti. We were already working on electrifying PIH clinics, but in the wake of the earthquake we’ve been requested by PIH to accelerate our timeline for bringing solar power to all of their sites in Haiti.”
Dr. Paul Farmer, co-founder of Partners In Health, has been an advocate for the Solar Health Care Partnership between the two organizations from the very beginning, when SELF worked on electrifying PIH clinics in Africa. “We know that solar energy is self-replenishing and sustainable. It works for us in Africa, and we want to use it across all our facilities in Haiti; diesel is already in short supply and will likely become even more difficult to obtain as time goes by,” said Dr. Farmer. “This song by Steel Pulse serves as a reminder that we stand with the people of Haiti in solidarity and compassion.”

Confused? Yeah, us too.

With the sports world buzzing about the UFC debut of former world boxing champion James Toney, some of the biggest names in boxing and MMA have come together to offer their opinions on his epic fight with Hall of Famer Randy Couture on Aug. 28. Before the two legends lock horns inside the Octagon® at TD Garden in Boston live on Pay-Per-View, we take a look at the thoughts, opinions, and predictions of some of the world’s finest fighters and personalities.
UFC light heavyweight Phil Davis. Prediction: Couture by Decision “It would be great for a guy like James Toney to build a name for himself in MMA but I’m going to have to go with Couture because of the cage experience that he has. It should be an entertaining fight. I feel like it could go the distance. I’m going to say it will go three rounds and Couture will win 29-28.”
Andre Berto – WBC welterweight champion – father Dieusel Berto fought in UFC 10 “I think it’s going be a good fight. Everybody knows Randy is not gonna stand up with James. If he does, it will be a short night. Most likely Randy is going to try to take James down and try to submit him so UFC can be glorified that they’re better than boxing. Hopefully James Toney has been working on his wrestling and ground skills. If so, it’ll be very entertaining.”
“Terrible” Terry Norris – Former world junior middleweight champion and pound-for-pound king “I just wish James luck and may the best man win. We know if it was just straight up boxing, James would knock Couture out, but James is fighting Couture’s fight and he’ll have his hands full.”
Dan Hardy, UFC Welterweight “I respect him greatly as a boxer, and I admire him for backing up his words by actually stepping into the Octagon. Floyd Mayweather talked a ton of crap about UFC fighters, but he ultimately didn’t have the balls to come and back his big mouth up. James Toney does have balls.”
WEC featherweight Chad Mendes. Prediction: Couture by TKO “Randy Couture will win this fight. I think he’ll win by first-round TKO.”
Miguel Cotto – reigning WBA junior middleweight champion. Prediction: Couture “Two great fighters, one trained in MMA and one in boxing. In a boxing match, I give it to Toney and in an MMA fight; I have to go with the MMA fighter (Couture).”
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans “(Toney’s) inside fighting capabilities could serve him well given Randy Couture’s clinch game. Look at the Frank Mir and Shane Carwin fight – most of the damage was done to Frank Mir against the cage. But if you get a guy like James Toney who knows how to strike off the cage, and who makes a living with inside fighting … I think that could lend some promise to James Toney. It could be a short night if a guy like James Toney lands one of those shots on the inside. He’s definitely the best true boxer out there in the UFC.”
Greg Haugen – former world lightweight champion – fought Vinny Pazienza, Ray Mancini, Julio Cesar Chavez, and Pernell Whitaker. Prediction: Toney “Unless Toney is fat and out of shape, he will destroy Randy. His standup game is way too strong for him. Remember, James is one of the most skilled guys out there if he is in good shape.”
Michael Bisping, UFC Middleweight “I can’t wait to see it to be honest. Can Randy double-leg him inside 10 seconds and do a number on him? Of course he can. But what if Toney lands one shot? That’s what makes this so interesting. What if?”
Paulie Malignaggi – Former world junior welterweight boxing champion. Prediction: Couture “The problem is, most boxers, even in their prime, would not last in MMA. These guys know how to grapple and kick, and the same could be said the opposite way – no MMA guy is gonna last in the ring with a boxer if they’re boxing. You’re going into somebody else’s domain. And not that Couture is a spring chicken, but if you look at James Toney, he’s always a guy who’s been a close-range fighter – shoulder rolls, dips, counterpunches. He never really had an outside game that was so special. He had slow feet and was plodding, but he had good upper body movement. You can’t do that in MMA, especially with Couture, who was a Greco-Roman wrestler. He’ll just wrestle him, take him down, choke him or ground and pound him. I don’t see how James Toney can win the fight, even if Couture is the older guy, but the best to both guys.”
WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan. Prediction: Couture “Toney has to make his punch count right away, but Couture will be watching for that. In any fight, you need a plan B and I don’t think Toney has one in a UFC fight.”
UFC welterweight Carlos Condit. Prediction: Couture “Wrestling will be the dominant force in this fight, regardless of how well James Toney can punch or how hard he can hit. He won’t be able to set up his shots like he would in boxing, and Randy Couture is the kind of fighter to capitalise on every little mistake he makes. Randy has made a whole career out of overcoming opponents with tactics and strategies, and Toney will probably be his easiest puzzle yet. We all know Toney has only his punching to fall back on, so Randy won’t have to work too hard to grab a hold of him and get him in his domain. Couture’s too experienced and too good at what he does.”
Sechew Powell – Number one IBF junior middleweight contender “I think if James can keep the fight on his feet he has a decent chance, but the minute they take the fight to the ground it’s over.”
WEC bantamweight contender Joseph Benavidez. Prediction: Couture by TKO “James Toney is just a boxer and MMA is a whole different sport. Your skills go down in boxing when you’re worried about being taken down. I don’t think someone can come in with just one background and fight a world-class MMA fighter.”
WBA heavyweight champion David Haye. Prediction: Couture via submission “I admire Toney’s courage, but six months of training isn’t going to be enough. As a UFC fan, I know two or three years wouldn’t be enough. He’s delusional here. Couture isn’t only going to end his UFC career inside a minute, he is most likely going to break James’s arm or leg and end his boxing career too.”
Christy “The Coal Miner’s Daughter” Martin – Women’s boxing pioneer. Prediction: Couture “I have never watched a UFC Pay-Per-View event, but I will be watching JT. I want James to win, but he’s stepping into Couture’s domain, therefore I think it will be Couture stopping James with his ground game.”
Steve “2 Pounds” Forbes – Former IBF super featherweight champion “It’s an interesting matchup. I think the question for Toney is, is he insane or is he a genius? He’s not taking on a regular MMA fighter; he’s taking on a legend in every sense of the word, but not only that, he’s doing it in Couture’s discipline and that takes guts. If Toney is successful, then he has opened up a whole new avenue for himself and other boxers to go into MMA. Toney has always been a risk taker and he’s fearless, and for that I root for him to do well. But I also love Captain America (Couture) because he’s from my birthplace of Oregon and has done great things in the sport. I hope it’s a good match.”
Steve Cunningham – IBF cruiserweight champion. Prediction: Couture “Toney’s got a puncher’s chance, but this isn’t boxing, and Couture’s not gonna stand and trade punches with him. This is Randy’s sport and I see him winning. Plus, he should be extra fueled to win this fight because of the disrespect from Toney, but I hope it’s an awesome fight either way.”
UFC welterweight Nick Ozipczak. Prediction: Couture “I’m just going to say what everybody’s thinking, and that’s that Toney only has a puncher’s chance here. That puncher’s chance will only last in the opening thirty seconds of the fight, too. Unless Toney lands something significant on Couture early, he’ll be taken down and it will be a definite first-round stoppage for ‘The Natural’. I can see Couture winning either via ground-and-pound for by submission but, whatever it is, it will happen early. If a miracle happens and Toney gets back to his feet at any stage, he’ll then find his punches won’t have much sting on them, as he hasn’t developed the muscles in his arms to cope with the grappling aspect and then the punching.”
UFC middleweight Patrick Cote. Prediction: Couture “If Randy underestimates his boxing skills it would be a big mistake. But how is James Toney going to react to wearing 4-ounce gloves because he’s used to the bigger gloves in boxing? He has some skills and he has punching power, but in MMA you have to be well-rounded so I think Randy will be too much for him.”
Fres Oquendo – heavyweight boxing contender – lost 12 round split decision to Toney in 2008 “James’ only chance is if he connects clean on Randy’s chin like Ray Mercer did against former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia. If not, I see Randy taking James down and that will be the beginning of the end of James’ MMA debut. Number one, because James has no legs, as I showed the world when we fought, and two, he has no ground game experience, which gives Randy the edge.”
UFC lightweight Terry Etim. Prediction: Couture “James Toney was a fantastic boxer, and one of the best to ever do it, but he’s a novice mixed martial artist. That’s the key in this fight and the reason why Randy Couture will dominate him. Toney probably still has one danger shot which can switch Randy’s lights out, but the likelihood is he won’t be in any position to land it at any stage in the fight. As soon as Randy gets a hold of him, the fight’s pretty much over. Randy won’t be foolish enough to stand and box with a guy like Toney, so he’ll be looking for his comfort zone from the off. Randy is the worst kind of opponent for Toney, because he’s a veteran guy, very experienced and knows how to execute game plans.”
WEC bantamweight contender Scott Jorgensen. Prediction: Couture by TKO “I’m a wrestler, man. Couture is going to double leg him, take him down and beat him until he taps to strikes. It’ll be Couture by first-round ground-and-pound. I’d like to see Randy drag it out for three rounds but I don’t think Toney has the heart for that.”
Former two-weight boxing champion Ricky Hatton. Prediction: Toney within a minute or Couture “James has a very good sense of timing, so there’s a chance he will land the one shot he needs and score a win right away. But, having been ringside at Randy’s fight with the much bigger Brock Lesnar, I think it is almost certain Couture will be able to maul Toney to the fence, take him down, and finish him there.”
UFC lightweight Paul Kelly. Prediction: Couture “It’s Randy Couture all the way for me, as I’m a massive fan of Randy and the way he goes about his work. He’s been an inspiration to me for many years, and I can’t see how James Toney walks into mixed martial arts and beats one of its greatest fighters. There’s no doubt Toney is a great fighter in his own right, as a boxer, but he’s done nothing so far as a mixed martial artist. Couture, on the other hand, has done it all and has experienced every single situation you can possibly confront in the Octagon. This sport is all new to Toney. He may have had nearly 100 boxing matches, but he hasn’t had one MMA match. I see Randy taking him down and finishing him quickly and in devastating fashion.”
Former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown. Prediction: Couture by submission “Randy by rear-naked choke in the first round”
UFC lightweight Andre Winner. Prediction: Couture “I’ve been reading quotes from Toney on forums and websites, and he’s saying he’s going to come out in a normal boxing stance and won’t change his game at all. If that’s the case, unless he catches Randy very early on, he’s just going to end up on his back. If he’s not willing to learn or adapt, he’ll get pummelled. I think he’s a great boxer, but my money is on Randy, so long as he plays it smart and exposes Toney’s weaknesses. If they get into a clinch, Toney will struggle with Randy’s sheer strength and size. Toney’s a big guy, but he never started out as a big guy, and has gradually put on a lot of weight, but it’s fat weight. Randy’s a decent-sized guy and has that natural grappling strength that all great wrestlers I have. I believe that will shock Toney on the night.”
Jeff Mayweather – Renowned trainer and former pro boxer “I think it should be interesting. Toney has the advantage in a stand up match, but if he gets taken down Couture should win because he has way too much experience. I heard Toney was working with a top grappler and doing real well but I don’t think you can take a crash course in something like that and perfect it. And vice versa, there’s no way Couture could become a great boxer overnight, so I think a lot will be determined after the very first blow. I will be watching it for sure and I’m pulling for James Toney because I know him personally, not because he’s a boxer. These are two different sports and I think that they both have their own fanbase, but the two of them combined will make this a huge event.”
WEC bantamweight Brad Pickett. Prediction: Couture by TKO “Obviously Randy Couture will win by first-round TKO. He’s a wise, old dog and he won’t try to prove any points on his feet. He’s going to close the distance, push him against the cage and take him down, mount him and win by ground-and-pound. Now, it’s a funny game and things can happen but if I was going to bet my house on it that’s what I think will happen.”
Australian boxing champion Danny Green. Prediction: Couture “Toney is a slow starter and Randy will tear him apart.”

Controversial celeb daughter and newly minted Vivid porn star Montana Fishburne sat down with AsIs Magazine in an exclusive interview for the Special Edition Assets issue available on newsstands Wed., Aug. 25th. Montana is the ideal Assets woman at only 18, embodying “the benefits of beauty, booty and brains.”
A multi-talented actor of stage and screen, Laurence Fishburne, is definitely respected as a king in the urban community, and Assets is the only men’s urban magazine to get the real answer to the number one question in America: “Why do porn when your father is Laurence Fishburne?”
Interviewer Shabazz gets the story behind how a seemingly well educated young lady follows her desire to start her career through porn and how she’s handling the controversy.
“Of course it will affect him. Of course people are going to ask him about it, and he feels a certain way about it,” says Montana on how her career may affect her famous father. “People shouldn’t look at him any different because of what I’ve done. I’m not him, I’m my own person, he just happens to be my daddy.”
In the exclusive 12-page spread, Montana discusses her feelings about being a black porn star, her childhood in New York and move, at age 15, to live in LA with her father and her side of recent allegations and her dislike of Brian Pumper.
“My definition of success is being happy with what you’ve done and the accomplishments you’ve made,” explains Montana. “I liked watching myself on camera so I called Vivid and got a meeting with Steven Hirsch. The rest, as they say, is history. Her movie “Montana Fishburne” was released earlier this month and a trailer can be viewed a www.vivid.com.
