Taylor Swift Releases “Blank Space” Video — WATCH NOW

Written by , Posted in General

I generally support the idea of a pop record that is not over-produced bubble gum bull shit, and Taylor Swift reigns supreme with ‘1989.’ Much like Gwen Stefani, I see Taylor Swift as cool, calm, calculated and in complete control of her career. She pens her tunes, she’s perfected her image, and she’s poised and polished in every interview. Plus, people tell me she’s nice, so the girl is easy to get behind. Aside from that little hiccup of hurling public insults at her past lovers, she’s the perfect superstar. And speaking of that hiccup, Swift shrewdly took aim at herself in her new song, “Blank Space,” with lyrics like “Darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream,” and “Got a long list of ex lovers, they’ll tell you I’m insane.” Watch her funny video below.

Shia LaBeouf Is a Cannibal

Written by , Posted in General

Shia LaBeouf has finally made use of his madness with a wacky, new video via Rob Cantor’s “Shia LaBeouf song,” which includes the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir and the Argus Quartet. Cantor crafted the song in 2012, and the internet’s undercurrent made it viral. Two years later, LaBeouf boarded the crazy train and finally created something to back his bonkers status. Good work, Shia.

Selena Gomez’s “Heart Wants What it Wants” — WATCH NOW

Written by , Posted in General

Selena Gomez’s “Heart Wants What It Wants” in her new video, which would be sad and moving except for the fact that the title is actually a Woody Allen quote, which he uttered in an interview when pressed about his relationship with Soon Yi Previn, saying “The heart wants what it wants. There’s no logic to those things. You meet someone and you fall in love and that’s that.” Plus, it’s a little hard to empathize with Gomez considering her heart obviously wants Justin Bieber, and even the greatest amount empathy won’t wash away that douchedom. Enjoy her less than stellar song below.

Jon Stewart Apologizes. He Voted.

Written by , Posted in General

Jon Stewart’s bad joke landed him in the penalty box with some pissed of Americans who look to the lauded political satirist for their daily sanity. When asked by Christiane Amanpour if he voted, Stewart sarcastically said he “just moved and [he] doesn’t even know where his thing is now.” The flip remark sent off a firestorm, with most people rightfully suggesting Stewart demeaned the voting process as unimportant. Watch the Daily Show host cool off the hot water with an apology below.

The Democrats Lost: Nicolle Wallace Gives a Rundown

Written by , Posted in General

If you have a limited amount of time and a lot of interest in politics, then you need only look to Nicolle Wallace and her ninja election rundown on The View. Though we all know that Republicans took control, Wallace answered many pressing questions about what’s next. I’ve bulleted her key points below for ease of read, but watch the video at your leisure to see Wallace in action. The View sure landed a big fish, and it’s nice to see a level-headed Republican on the panel.

  • The Senate will be younger and more female
  • All Presidents face a backlash in their sixth year
  • Had the Democrats aligned instead of maligned Obama, then perhaps Obama’s supporters would have voted, thereby increasing the Democrats’ chances.
  • The Republicans rejected Tea Party antics in favor of less crazy leaders to represent its party.
  • Pot is legal in two more states, like it or not.
  • A Democratic President is more likely to get stuff done with a Republican controlled congress, because it’s easier “when it’s just the White House negotiating with one other side.”

PHOX Visits Conan for a Stunning Performance — WATCH NOW

Written by , Posted in General

PHOX first caught my attention via a very astute music manager who insisted I see them live in Los Angeles. Their magical stage presence and quiet conviction is awe-inspiring, and their tunes are catchy enough to secure mainstream success. Plus, the lead singer is darn beautiful. Catch them on Conan below.

Russell Brand Bombarded With #PARKLIFE! Hashtags

Written by , Posted in General

It appears that twitter trolls have put their attacks to some interesting use as of late, taking a stunning amount of space to barb Russell Brand and his new, sententious book, ‘Revolution.’ The viral rebuke against his verbosity began with Dan Barker, who hilariously suggested that “Russell Brand’s writing feels like someone is about to shout “PARKLIFE!” at the end of every sentence.'” The term stems from the title of a song by the British band Blur, which features ridiculous spoken lines by actor Phil Daniels, which are continuously interrupted by the word “Parklife.” Many retweets later, Brand is now bombarded with the titular term, and he’s drowning in hashtags. I suppose the guy deserves it. After all, if a comedian is going to wax on about politics, he can expect some powerful pushback, and this is brilliant. Listen to the song below, followed by a parody video of Brand.

Delta Spirit at The Satellite: A Full Review

Written by , Posted in General

DeltaSpiritIntoTheWideAlbumCover

 

With a devoted underground following and impressive mainstream success, Delta Spirit has become one of the most in-demand live shows to see. Originating from San Diego, the five-piece power group are promoting their fourth full-length Album, ‘Into the Wide,’ and their live performance at The Satellite beautifully balanced their well-known Americana elements with the modern rock transition of their most current material. Delta Spirit’s shift in sound is largely influenced by their move to Brooklyn, a transition that created just enough moody tension to incorporate city angst into their heavier record. Seeing Delta Spirit live at the Satellite confirmed their status as music’s must-see act, most notably the incredibly impressive drumming of Brandon Young, who captured my attention for most of the evening. Listen to ‘Live On’ below, and purchase their record on iTunes.
