I want your submissions for the Spotify Music Corner!
Editor Stan Huskey and I came up with the idea a couple of weeks ago and we officially launched it on Sept. 22. We wanted to give our readers a fun place to go to on our website to check out what other people are currently listening to and to give them the opportunity to share what they're listening to.
Ya hear that?
I want YOU to send me your Spotify playlists! We're keeping the number of songs to a maximum of 10, and we'd like you to tell us why chose each song. After you put a playlist together, just copy the embed code into an email along with your description and I'll put it up on our site FOR AN ENTIRE WEEK!
Want to know the coolest part about having it on our site for a week? Other Spotify users will be able to find you on Spotify and can follow you if they like your choices!
So make sure you start sending me your playlists so I can start featuring them on TimesHerald.com!

'NSYNC to reunite at MTV's Video Music Awards?!
At least that's what US Weekly is claiming. Justin Timberlake is accepting this year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this year and will reportedly be joined on afterwards by former boy bandmates JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick.
According to US Weekly, "The MTV source ... (says) that producers are 'trying to make it happen,' and that the much-hoped-for reunion is 'coming together.' The hugely successful group last performed together back in 2004, singing the 'Star Spangled Banner' at the Annual Challenge for Children; their last televised performance was at the 2003 Grammy Awards during a tribute to the Bee Gees."
This is big, guys. This is so big. At least for me it is. I fell in love with 'NSYNC in 1997 and I never stopped following Justin Timberlake. So let's all keep our fingers crossed that this happens!

Bloodhound Gang deported from Russia after flag stunt
A video that was taken at a recent concert in the Ukraine shows bassist "Evil" Jared Hasselhoff stuffing a Russian flag down his pants while on stage, according to the New York Daily News. Hasselhoff reportedly apologized for the incident, claiming it's the band's tradition to mess with objects thrown on stage by fans.
Over the weekend, Russian culture minister Vladimir Medinsky sent out a tweet saying "Bloodhound Gang is packing its bags."
A video of the incident can be watched below.

Conshohocken connection in new Bruce Springsteen documentary
MoreThanTheCurve.org, one of The Times Herald's community bloggers, says the documentary "includes an interview with 27 year old Nick Ferraro of Conshohocken. Ferraro was interviewed due to his father, also Nick Ferraro, climbing on-stage at a Bruce Springsteen concert in Philadelphia in October of 2009 dressed as Elvis. Dressed as Elvis, Ferraro performed a song with Springsteen."
At the four minute mark in the video below, you can see Ferraro's father performing with Springsteen.

Something to be proud of
I've known Matt since my sophomore year of high school (I'll be 27 in September — for time frame purposes) and he's been involved with music the entire time I've known. In fact, I'm pretty sure I met him at a show that one his former bands was playing at.
That being said, it's a really awesome thing to see how much he and his bandmates have accomplished over the years. The music business isn't an easy thing to get into, and The Wonder Years have done everything in their power to get to where they are today. And the coolest part of it all is how down-to-earth they have all remained and how much they still do things on their own.
This week the band is hosting a "pop up shop" in Philadelphia in collaboration with Glamour Kills to celebrate the release of their new album. The shop features limited edition merchandise that will only available this week, and it also gives their fans the opportunity to hang out with them in a low-key and intimate environment. The band also has friends performing every night after shop hours, and the week will come to a close with an acoustic performance and signing by The Wonder Years.
If you happen to be in Philadelphia at all this week, head to 307 Market Street and see out what these guys are doing. They have a lot to be proud of, and I think everyone should see what they've accomplished if they have a chance to.
