It's fair to say that any new song by Coldplay will be better received than a certain Canadian Skater Girl's attempts at covering one of the band's most popular tunes. The Brits took the stage at the Los Angeles Tennis Center on Wednesday night, to premiere new track "Charlie Brown" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Like most of their songs of late, or ever, it's a swooping, stadium anthem that may not be a direct homage to the "Peanuts" character, but still manages to give brief reference to our favorite loser, whether intentional or not ("In my scarecrow dreams/ When they smashed into smithereens/ Be a bright red rose come burst to concrete/ Be a cartoon heart"). The Kimmel performance was part of a larger 90-minute set for the Grammy Foundation's "Grammy in the Schools" program, and also featured the first performance of current single "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" in the U.S. While frontman Chris Martin was featured on guitar, he still proved his mobile self, managing to run to each side of the stage before song's end, employing some of his signature dance moves. Watch the performance below.

A wide array of OTC medicines was also considered eligible. see here cold sore remedies
The new rules for reimbursement most notably affect purchases of OTC medications that fall into the following categories(1): pain relievers, cough, cold and flu, allergy, acid controllers, anti-diarrheas and other gastrointestinal, smoking cessation products, feminine anti-fungal and anti-itch, respiratory treatments, topical medical ointments, cold sore remedies and sleep aids.
In addition, according to BASIC, one of the nation's largest third-party benefits administrators, the regulations do allow for the eligibility of some OTC categories such as diabetic supplies, bandages and durable medical equipment. But the company noted that the IRS is unlikely to publish a complete list of qualifying expenses.
The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
