As of Monday, the artist formerly known as VH1 Classic is getting a whole new look: It will be reborn as MTV Classic, a channel devoted to the 24-hour-a-day airing of the aesthetic comfort food of millennials. To name a few of the shows that will be getting the rerun treatment: Daria, Beavis & Butt-head, Aeon Flux, Cribs, MTV Unplugged, Real World, and Laguna Beach. And while it may read like I’m just copy-pasting a BuzzFeed listicle, given the world’s newfound nostalgia for all things ’90s, there’s never been a better time to plumb the character design of shows like Daria for fashion fodder.
Barb Wire Dolls hail from an artist commune on the island of Crete, the band sold everything they owned and left crisis-ridden Greece in 2010 for Los Angeles, at the invite of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer. Upon their arrival in California, Barb Wire Dolls immediately sold out the world famous Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, boasting a live show that is second to none.
Electrifying rock of this magnitude did not go unnoticed by the elder statesman of the Sunset Strip, the incomparable, irreplaceable Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead. After seeing Barb Wire Dolls live, Lemmy took an immediate interest in the band and placed them under his supportive wing. Disgusted with the current state of rock music and its lack of true rebels, Lemmy saw that the Dolls were the obvious choice to help carry the torch of rock and roll as part of his label, Motörhead Music.

Hey everyone – it’s been a year since my last Q&A with Jeff Pilson, and I’m excited to run another “State of the Union” interview for you all. As usual, there is a lot to talk about, and I’ve done my best to cover the bases, but this one will certainly play heavier on the “State of the Reunion” due to the big announcement this week about DOKKEN! – Michael
Here we go…
- Hey Jeff – it’s hard to believe another year has come around since our last Q&A… I just want to start by thanking you for always being willing to update your fans like you do.
JEFF: No prob. It’s all about communication these days. Glad you’re helping out with it.
- Let’s dive right into the deep waters: Word is starting to spread that Don has finally agreed to an offer that brings back you and…

It could also implement augmented-reality-like features
Too bad recording is disabled, that band is really rocking out.
Recently, artists have been going to some pretty great lengths in order to cut down on the number of people taking photos and videos during concerts. Recently Apple was granted a patent for which they filed in 2011 for tech that would allow an infrared transmitter to prevent the iPhone camera from recording in certain locations.
The idea would be to restrict recording in a simpler way that doesn’t require handing out an electronic bag to each patron that will only unlock outside the venue. The user, for instance, might see a message that says “recording is currently unavailable.”
As 9to5Mac.com points out, there are also some practical applications for the technology, like using IR signals to enhance the camera and implement an augmented reality (remember when that was the craze?) system where the camera and phone screen become a heads-up display, adding information to the scene in front of you.
As always, this is a patent, so it could just stay in the realm of intellectual property forever. But, something like this could have some scary implications if it were to be used at, say, a large-scale protest or a gathering where smartphone video recordings would otherwise be very likely. On the other hand, the idea of renting a smartphone camera blocker for a wedding ceremony sounds fantastic.
