Hundreds of gaming fanatics lined up around Westwood's Hollywood Video last week because they just couldn't wait to play Sega's much-anticipated Dreamcast system. You may have seen Sega's billboards announcing the system's arrival on "9/9/99." But Thursday morning, at 12:01 a.m., the store made 100 of the consoles available for rental. Verne Troyer (1), better known as Austin Powers' pint-sized alter ego Mini-Me, arrived with an entourage of similarly diminutive bodyguards.

Infopop, a Seattle-based Internet company, cut off its hosting service to the band's message board after being contacted by the Secret Service, according to the company's president, Michael Moore.

As we close the book on 2012, which among other things included the ambitious yearlong multifaceted salute to Woody Guthrie on the 100 th anniversary of his birth, Pop & Hiss will take a page from America's most celebrated folk singer and songwriter. Two pages, actually, that contain 33 new year's resolutions that Guthrie concocted just as the year 1942 was about to begin. They range from whimsical (No. 3: “Wash teeth if any”) to serious (No. 27: “Help win war - Beat fascism”)

Here's a second example of empty chairs  throwing off planned conservative convention festivities this week.  A planned anti-President Obama concert, " Rock the Red ," had been  scheduled as counter-programming to the Democratic National Convention next week. Country artists including Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels and Lee Brice were booked at the 11,000-seat Bojangles Coliseum for a show organized by Jason Lambert, a North Carolina Republican consultant.  Though not an official Republican event, the set was planned as a conservative riposte to the DNC festivities.  But the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority , which operates the Coliseum, pulled the plug on the event Thursday. Kimberly Meesters, the director of marketing for the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, told Talking Points Memo that organizers "didn't meet their financial obligations by the deadline we require," which appears to be shorthand for very low ticket sales.  In a post on their Facebook site , organizers for Rock the Red stated " Bojangles claims the change was due to low ticket sales on Ticketmaster.

Kudos to writer-director Antonino D'Ambrosio for taking such an eclectic and disparate number of aims, thoughts, subjects and mediums and creating the smart and inspiring - and uniquely whole - documentary that is "Let Fury Have the Hour. " A kind of think/performance piece about what's termed here "creative reaction," the film hears from a stirring swath of socially conscious artists whose work largely emerged as an anger-channeling counter to the Reagan-Thatcher era of conservative individualism.

The Occupy movement galvanized protest singers to assemble in public spaces and shout their grievances last year. In Los Angeles, the potential arrival of a ChinatownWal-Martmay do the same. Wal-Marthas already begun construction on the controversial store at Grand Avenue and Cesar A. Chavez Boulevard, but this Saturday a bevy of union organizers and local and national acts known for social activism will lead what they're billing as "the largest protest against Wal-Mart ever held in the U.S. " Acts that include Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and adventurous folkie Ben Harper (who headlines the Hollywood Bowl the next night)

Add Rage Against the Machine to the list of rockers, including Elvis Costello and Sinead O'Connor, who have butted heads with "Saturday Night Live." The L.A. rock band with radical political views saw its recent booking on the NBC-TV show as an opportunity to make a high-profile statement against a U.S. political system it believes is geared to the wealthy -- right under the nose of guest host Steve Forbes, the billionaire publisher and former Republican presidential hopeful.
