Mina - How The Angels Fly video

if you are hot and you sing on some sort of pro level, i have a knack for finding you. (non stalkerishly much haha.) information on this girl in the english language is extremely scarce. album sounds very similar to the single.

Juno star has a mind of her own

lol. i was gonna write the only thing i know for sure about this ellen page is that she would never ever sleep with me (based on her letterman interview). and this solidifies that assumption "Diablo Cody, the film's screenwriter and Page's new best friend"

Martin Luther King "I have a dream"

Commodore SX-64 vs MacBook Air


Caution’s in the Air as Sundance Opens

That could change, of course, and film agents said that as recently as last year the first big sale — of “Grace Is Gone,” to the Weinstein Company for $4 million — didn’t take place until Sunday night. But the dismal box office performance of Sundance films like that one (it earned less than $37,000) may be a reason this year’s festival marketplace started off so slowly.

these bloggers were getting text messages about how the movie was playing, while it was still playing.

my movie revues #28

across the universe - see, i find many films based around social issues are great. this one is. i'm liking this for best director. a lofty film.
the kite runner - see, excellent. very excellent.
a mighty heart hd - see, lots of great acting from angelina, and realism.
stardust hd - see, excellent fantasy adventure film.
die hard 4 hd - see, radical action in this one. great entertainment. most obvious hollywood thing would be the textbook play with the daughter.
eastern promises hd - see, it was good. definitely some extreme violence.
sunshine hd - see, ultra intense suspense sci-fi film.

So, Wait, Was ‘Gossip Girl’ Realistic or Not?

so much gold in this article.
And she is totally going to try freebasing crystal meth.
In other words, just like your parents.
We hate Vanessa.
Except, if she were a real person, she wouldn't climb through windows in Brooklyn without getting shot

my 2 comments.. vanessa would not have gotten rid of 10 grand just to make a funny. that was unbearable.
and dan does not need a gay haircut. have feelings for the straight people watching the show.

australian party boy corey delaney on a current affair

16 Year-old Corey Delaney threw a little party for his friends...which he happened to announce on his MySpace page...that quickly got out of hand. When the party was over, police had arrived to break up the hundreds of teens who were scattered through the neighborhood and causing over $18K worth of damage. Corey went into hiding shortly thereafter, but not so much to avoid a contemptuous interview with Australia's A CURRENT AFFAIR.

fuckin funny. click in the middle of the video to play.

Shelby Lynne - Just A Little Lovin

this album comes out in two weeks. it is superb.
"Shelby's new album, Just A Little Lovin', was inspired by one of her favorite singers, Dusty Springfield. The album features nine clasic songs associated with Dusty and one stunning original written by Shelby, inspired by Dusty."
Shelby Lynne (born Shelby Lynne Moorer, October 22, 1968, Quantico, Virginia) is an American country music singer, songwriter and actress. She won a Grammy Award in 2001 for Best New Artist.
this album is very chilling jazzy. I Only Want To Be With You is the first super familiar song followed by The Look Of Love.

Christina Aguilera - Save me from myself video

footage from wedding. good enough.

Cat Power - Jukebox

this comes out in one week. sounds excellent. starts with a bang with new york. the whole album has a distinct sound. it's got a bluesy tinge to it. check it.

Hayden the master of his music-making house

"when Everything I Long For blew up 12 years ago"
wow. 12 years. that album is awesome. can't wait to check out the new one dropping tomorrow.

my winter tv review

new shows
sophie - this canadian comedy just premiered and is funny. lol'ed at least 10 times during first episode. nuts to anything nonecstatic the toronto star guy said. either i met natalie brown at some industry party or she's been in so many pictures and commercials, i think i have. thumbs up.
the sarah connor chronicles - action action action. probly more gunshots in first episode than the last 40 movies i watched. america is gonna love it.
the wire season five - just started excellently. i've seen every episode from the first four seasons. this season will rule.
jpod - gave up after ten minutes. not good.

concluded shows
gossip girl - season did not disappoint. how great was that pool party episode.. series ended with pure lol. stay and fight! ha
the black donnellys - i finally finished the series and it was good. not a major conclusion but a good watch none the less. props to the girl for beating that psycho.
it's always sunny in philadelphia - i've seen every episode from all three seasons. this show is majorly slept on but kicks serious ass.
weeds - seen every episode. season three ended beautifully.

in the middle shows
prison break - i'm right in the middle of season one off bluray. kinda like real life where there are nothing but challenges coming up nonstop. <3 the dr.
curb your enthusiasm - i've seen all of seasons one and six. gonna get through the other four seasons for sure.

my movie revues #27

i'm making an effort to see the big award show favorites. the only one i will never ever watch is hairspray. fat girl and man dressing as a woman is highly gay.

juno - pass, this movie is annoying. there is nothing wrong with this film EXCEPT the writing. it has no basis in reality. it's creative fluff. you can make ONE character eccentrically annoying but not every single one.
broken english - see, nice story about a woman over 30 trying to find the right guy.
i'm not there - see, excellent film about and inspired by bob dylan. has the chick from science of sleep. the cool thing about this film is when you relate to the words being said. introspective.
control - see, this was in black and white which over-enhanced the piercing contrast between the two girls. the too good-looking factor certainly comes into play.
no country for old men - see, certainly interesting but i don't know what all the fuss is about. drugs, killers, nothing new.
the lives of others hd - must-see, unforgettable.
shoot em up hd - pass, this movie is in very bad taste. painfully awful. smh.

"back the fuck off"

ashlee simpson is badass. she says "back the fuck off" at about 2:26 of her outta my head song. i guess her audience of 14 year olds grows up to be 18 and can bear swearing. i hope there's a lot more swearing to come on her album. pull an avril ashlee!

The Whores of the Year

pointing out in detail the obvious lengths mainstream movie critics go to to get on a poster ad.

"Oh, but wait. I Am Legend DOESN’T EVEN APPEAR ON HIS TOP 10 LIST!!! One of the “greatest movies ever made” isn’t even one of the ten best films of 2007!"

too funny

Bat for Lashes - What's a girl to do (French TV)


FADER 40: Unpublished Pimp C Interview

good read.

Guy records his roomate dancing - featured on the Today Show


Katharine McPhee dropped from record label smh

record label is pretty dumb. her album was good.
"2007 self-titled affair that debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200"
it sold 366,000 copies in the usa. in my opinion that number is good enough to justify making a living as a recording artist. stop spending a million dollars a track or you will go over your budget like eminem says.
i compare this mildly to christina milian, except the difference is i never once listened to the entire milian album. mcphee album is decent. idiots!

Friday, January 4, 2008


i was gonna write a tirade but then i realized they were right about something.

not hip hop though. it was a fluke they got the 50 and kanye ratings right on. and it doesn't take a scientist to figure out clipse are great.

nothing like starting the kanye album at 10:30am.

National Geographic Photography Contest - People Gallery

all great

i was pretty sure their regulations were wack from the past (like taking rights or something) and this is from a message board:
"A musician or say an actor discusing their latest release in a magazine is exposure, not paying contibutors for content, which is what your image is, is simply taking advantage of gullible people who think being published without recompense is a good thing. And contributes further to the degrading of photography as a profession as opposed to a hobby."
nobody cares if you have been published in ngm if you were not paid. true story.

my movie revues #26

smiley face - see, anna faris pothead movie. funny.
gone baby gone - see, this is an important film. guaranteed to spark discussion if you watch it with someone.
true heart susie - see, this 1919 gem was cool. they don't make em like they used to.
atonement - see, film is good but the problem with this is just when you think, wow what a fucking ending, you see the credits.
transylvania - see, kinda weird but great. super ending.
jersey girl hd - pass, not very interesting and too much music.
the phantom of the opera hd - see, quite entertaining with amazing sets and lots of emmy screentime.

The Music Industry's War on Insider Leaks -- New York Magazine

another day. another article about music leaks. this article is the closest to the truth you will ever find because beyond what's in this article, you don't need to know.

they censor themselves because that's the unwritten rule.
“The name of the crew is [redacted], and they released a [CD-quality version] on October 1. Beyond that, I really have never heard of these guys before, so I wouldn’t be able to give you a lot of data on them.”

M.I.A. PAPER PLANES official video

much better than the leaked version. this version is the version m.i.a. approves. i never got to read her blog about it.
