KOAR doesn’t typically reserve its space for lunatic movie directors, but we couldn’t let this shameless marketing tactic slide. Disgraced movie director James Cameron who claimed to be ‘the king of the world’ when he won an Oscar for Titanic has no shame to push a script that he wanted to sell. He was set out to find the real Jesus and my GOD he came back with the goods. Golly Day, The King of the World found Jesus. The last time I picked up the yellow pages I found the name Jesus 75 times. But Nooo…He found the real one. This maniac human is actually going on the record making outlandish claims. Director Simcha Jacobovici told the press conference: “For millions of readers, the Da Vinci Code was a fantasy, a fiction. Here is a Judah, son of Jesus, next to a Jesus and a Mariamne.” Greed sees no boundaries. Some hollywood execs are concerned on how this could effect his career.

    • David Geffen the music and film producer is taking a stab at politics. Dave loves his name in the press. Gotta love hollywood producers getting involved with politics.

    • Top 40 Station Adds Unsigned track.
      Top myspace artist One Less Reason’s new track “If You Want Me” has been added to Jackson’s, MS top 40 station Y101. The Program Director Nate West heard the buzz on the band and after listening to the song he decided to add the track, which is not an easy feat today. His instincts are correct, “If You Want Me” is reacting and is a top requested song. For more information email the management.

    UPDATE: One Less Reason just SOLD OUT the 800 capacity venue Hals N Mals in Jackson, MS. Now if it works in this market, by theory, it should translate in most markets.

    EMI the struggling British music company, has said it has received a fresh takeover approach from US rival Warner Music.

    Analysts said even acceptance by EMI could lead to regulatory difficulties.

    Warner’s approach comes as EMI is battling against sliding sales of compact discs in the United States. EMI last week said it expected revenue at its recorded music business — EMI Music — to show a decline of about 15 percent in the year to March 31 compared with the previous 12-month period.
