If you’ve got an extra 1/10th of a billion dollars lying around, you could find yourself moonwalking down the same paths Michael Jackson once did. Following extensive renovations, the King of Pop’s Neverland Ranch is officially on the market for $100 million.
Now called by its original name, Sycamore Valley Ranch, the 2,700-acre property is located in Los Olivos, about 40 miles northwest of Santa Barbara, California. Though the miniature amusement park and private zoo have all been removed (a llama reportedly still remains), 22 buildings remain on the property. Those include a train station with the famous Neverland clock (above), a four-bedroom guesthouse, a second guesthouse with two bedrooms, a swimming pool with a cabana, and the Neverland Valley Fire Department building.
The main complex is a 12,000-square-foot Normandy-style house situated between two lakes, complete with six bedrooms and an attached staff quarters. There are also basketball and tennis courts, a 50-seat movie theater with viewing balcony, and a stage designed for magic shows complete with trap doors.
Rumors that Neverland was going to be on the market began last summer, but The Wall Street Journal has confirmed that the property is now officially up for sale.
Jackson purchased the property in 1988 for a cool $19.5 million. He lived there through 2005, at which point he chose to distance himself from the ranc...

When A$AP Rocky first emerged at the beginning of the decade, it was by shrewdly repackaging cloud rap and Houston-Memphis hip-hop for the Fashion Week crowd. A few years later, he expanded his palette and dabbled in singing on Long. Live. A$AP, an album that air-dropped two excellent singles and featured both a not-half-bad Skrillex collaboration and a head-pleasing posse cut.
As we waited for At.Long.Last.A$AP, Rocky dribbled out hints about what the album would sound like. Promotional single
The Black Market: The Month In Metal
May 29, 2015 9:02am | StereoGum
Before we get started with this month's column, a quick programming note: For scheduling reasons, Black Market founder and Stereogum editor Michael Nelson has passed the torch. In his stead, I (Doug Moore) will be kicking off each month's clutch of tunes. Michael is among the sharpest writers and analysts in music -- I've happily … More »

Thomas Arsenault wrote "Margarita" as a towering New Wave tribute to his mom, but when Delorean got their hands on the Mas Ysa track, they turned it inside out, de-emphasizing the melody in favor of atmosphere and infectious rhythm. That's not to say there's no harmonious goodness here, though; the real stars of this … More »
Watch Kendrick Lamar Rap Atop A Traffic Light Pole For
May 29, 2015 8:51am | StereoGum
In Kendrick Lamar's last video, the great "King Kunta" clip, Lamar rapped from the rooftop of a closed-down Compton swap meet. He'll do that one better in his new video for "Alright," the Pharrell collaboration from his new album To Pimp A Butterfly. (It's good to see that "Alright" is about to become … More »

New Song : Postiljonen :
May 29, 2015 8:37am | My Old Kentucky Blog
Our homies over at Gorilla vs. Bear just premiered a new sun-soaked, wistful song from Swedish threesome Postiljonen. “Waiting” is the first new music from them since their hazy, ascendant 2013 album Skyer. Mia Brox Bøe

John MacLean was once a member of the Beta Band, the great and influential and weirdly underrated Scottish group. He directed some of their videos, and after the group's breakup, he became a filmmaker. His first movie is Slow West, the new indie Western with Michael Fassbender. The composer Jed Kurzel did most of … More »

Rowlf the Dog and the seven singer-songwriter stereotypes

Kung Fury, an insane, 1980s-inspired kung fu B-movie, is the best film of the weekend
May 29, 2015 8:00am | Cosequence Of Sound
The best movie of the weekend comes not from Cameron Crowe, but rather Swedish writer-director David Sandberg. After successfully raising over $600,000 on Kickstarter, Sandberg set out to film Kung Fury, an over-the-top kung fu B-movie set in 1980s Miami.
Without giving too much away, the 30-minute short features dinosaurs, vikings, an arcade game that transform into a killing machine, and a cameo from David Hasselhoff. Sandberg himself plays the film’s kung-fu protagonist, while The Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone is cast as his arch nemesis, Adolf Hitler.
The full film can be seen below. A standalone clip of Hasselhoff’s “music video” is also posted.
Drake Was Used In A Sentence During Scripps National Spelling Bee
May 29, 2015 7:34am | StereoGum
God bless the cool English teacher, the one who sits on his desk chair backwards and cusses in class twice a year. In some sort of ultimate example of cool-English-teacher-ness, one judge dropped Drake's name into the Scripp's National Spelling Bee last night. (If you've seen the great documentary Spellbound, you know that spelling bee … More »

premiere: Postiljonen ushers in summer with soaring new single
May 29, 2015 7:00am | Gorilla Vs Bear
Sweden’s Postiljonen follow up their 2013 soft-Balearic-dream-pop masterpiece Skyer with a sweeping, sumptuous new summer night jam, inspired by “the Balearics, widescreen cinema and massive 80s pop anthems.” Best listened to while gazing longingly at a picturesque sunrise/sunset (probably), as the palpable yearning in Mia Brox Bøe’s gorgeous/breathless refrain “If I give my heart away, it will only start a fire” envelops you in her very real blissfully bittersweet summertime sadness. Happy to have these guys back. “Wait” is out June 1st via Best Fit Recordings.
Mogwai have designed a range of skateboards
May 29, 2015 6:58am | Fact Magazine
You know what’s cool?
Skateboarding is cool. Yeah, still. We know so because not one but two of our favourite acts have launched custom decks within weeks of each other, and while Daft Punk’s 70s-inspired offering was highly covetable, Mogwai have one-upped them by with some merch that includes a donation to a good cause.
The band have collaborated with Focus Scotland to create the series of limited edition skateboard decks and some rather nice T-shirts, with £5 from every deck sold going towards the GUSM74 skate park project in Glasgow.
Sibs Roberts of Focus explained: “We reached our 14th year in business last month, and each year we like to mark it with something special that we can look back on with pride: this project with Mogwai definitely fulfils that criteria. Being a fan of Mogwai’s music and knowing Stuart’s love of skateboarding, I suggested the idea over a number of off the cuff emails, and here we are. Hopefully people will be as stoked on this as we are.”
