Kenny Vs. Spenny just might be Canada's biggest exports since Rush and BTO, but this duo is taking care of business in moving pictures as opposed to in sound, competing not just for your entertainment but to document what executive-producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of South Park, have called, "The most accurate examination of male friendships that we've ever seen." Starpulse sat down with Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice to discuss their forthcoming Comedy Central debut, how their friendship has survived for so long, and the philosophical underpinnings of humiliation and cheating....

Mistico
It's been two and a half years since Charlie Hunter's last release, Copperopolis. This is certainly not too long to wait if you're happy with the jazz status quo. But for those of you who are Hunter fans Mistico has been a long time coming.

With Mistico, Hunter's first release on Fantasy Records, he continues the quest he's been on since he left Blue Note years ago; a quest no more complicated than the enjoyment of music-his own and others'. And he seems at least a few steps closer to what he's been looking for. "I wanted everything to sound like one kind of large instrument that will ...
