Just delete the theme directories from your hard drive--likely at 
/usr/share/mythtv/themes.  Specifically, delete the BlackCurves-OSD and 
Gray-OSD directories and their contents.

No errors shown in the logs.  You said you started mythbackend, then 
mythfrontend, then mythfrontend crashed, then you shut down 
mythbackend.  The next step after what's showing in your frontend log 
would have been the MythMusic schema update, which could be canceled if 
you chose the option to cancel it from the prompt on screen.  However, 
in doing that, you would have gotten actual exit messages, so it seems 
that mythfrontend is actually crashing.

Therefore, to figure out what's happening, you'll have to get a backtrace:
