Abort! Abort! It's that time of year when Hollywood releases movies it should never have made in the first place. These are the turd droppings that studios, fearing the worst, refuse to preview for critics. That leaves only the trailer to give you a fix on Collateral Damage, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Los Angeles firefighter whose wife and child are killed in a terrorist bombing. Yes, this is the flick Warner Bros. postponed after 9/11. Vowing revenge, Ah-nuld races to Colombia to track down the villain, who asks, "What's the difference between you and I?" To which Ah-nuld replies, "The difference is, I'm just gonna kill you." And you were worried this film might lack sensitivity and gravitas.

    “Santa Monica”

    Everclear | 1996

    After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
