First Look: Owl City Takes “To The Sky”

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

How appropriate that the new Zack Snyder film about owls has its title soundtrack single sung by Owl City. To The Sky debuted on YouTube and Owl City’s official site yesterday. The song was first released on September 1st and has created hundreds of Owl City fans. Everyone remembers how Fireflies took flight last year and became the song everyone loved to hate or secretly loved.

To The Sky has been said to be perfect lead off for the film Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. Critics are raving that it has the perfect blend of synth pop and melodies to compliment a soundtrack to a film such as this. The video depicts singer Adam Young writing and recording the track while having the film play on in the background. In the end, Adam Young is transformed into an owl.

The girls & gays have their anthem(s), but what about the “straight” guys? This is a hilarious video released a few days ago dedicated to all things for straight guys. The lyrics follow a straight guy who grew up in the gay capital, San Francisco, and how he had to hide the fact that he was straight, and so on.

The video is actually pretty brilliant and quite entertaining. About time the “straight guys” came up with a video/parody themselves. It’s a nice change of pace. Lady Gaga at the MTV VMA’s: “And thank you to the gay for remaking the Bad Romance video over and over again.”

Lohan Admits Failed Drug Test

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Yesterday, was a big day for our two favorite twenty-something red-head actresses. Emma Stone‘s “Easy A” premiered and SNL announced that she would be hosting SNL on October 23rd. They also announced that Lindsay Lohan would be hosting on December 4th! That wasn’t the only Lindsay news yesterday. Reports surfaced that she had failed her drug test. If that was they case, she could face 30 days in jail. This morning, Lohan admitted that this was true, in a few heartfelt, honest…tweets:

“Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next wee as a result. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences…I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful…Thank you all!!!”

A Chilly New Thriller: “Frozen”

In: Adam, Movies

Forgiving the lame pun, this movie is actually quite well done: full of cringe-worthy moments just like a thriller ought to be. Combining the hot, mainly tv-actress Emma Bell with the once-too-young sexy “Transamerica” homo son Kevin Zegers alongside the boy-next-door Shawn Ashmore (“X-Men’s” Iceman), this 90 minute scare-fest pulls off a pretty damn decent flick. As oppose to recent fright films like “Resident Evil“, “A Serbian Film” and “Piranha”, “Frozen” is not so slash n’ gore but rather sustained fear and less-is-more bloodsport: an appreciated break from the norm.

Set on the ski hill, we endure the tortured limbo of a couple and their disgruntled friend’s nightmare: being held captive by a shut down ski lift as they head up the hill in an attempt for “one more run.” Admittedly, you need to set aside a bit of reality to believe that in this day and age, a mountain could let this stranding happen, what occurs after the sun sets and the kids start to panic is actually quite believable and painful in a “that’s what I would do” kind of way as we watch their terror unfold. And, don’t worry, it’s not just the story of a bad case of frostbite ;) The characters are realistic, their dialogue is simple but accurate and the suffering they endure is both cringe-worthy and utterly likely considering the situation. Short but sweet, this thriller doesn’t need incestuous, stalking mutants or raised zombies to sell its fear factor- just plain old “god I hope that never happens to me” storylining.

Lady Gaga On DADT

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!, Videos

Lady Gaga has released this incredibly honest and well spoken video urging people to call the senators in their constituencies to get them to finally repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. As you know, the law forces gay soldiers to keep silent about their sexuality, or be sent home. But actually, their freedoms are being breached even worse with people being investigated and having their emails searched, etc. to prove their sexualities. It’s disgusting. Here’s a little of what she says:

“To my fellow Americans, the Senate, Senators John McCain—Arizona, Mitch McConnell—Kentucky, James Inhofe—Oklahoma, Jeff Sessions—Alabama, and youth all over the world who are watching….‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ is a law that was created in 1993 that prevents gays from serving openly in the military. Since then 14,000 Americans have been discharged from the armed forces, refused the right to serve their country and sent home, regardless of honorable service or how valuable they were to their units…We are not asking you to agree with or approve the moral implications of homosexuality, we’re asking you to do your job, to protect the constitution. As majority leader Harry Reid said, anyone who is willing to fight for this country should have the same civil opportunities to do so as anyone else.”

That’s just an excerpt. You have to listen to how passionate, respectful, and educated Gaga was in how she delivered this message.

Actually, all three will be showing up on the Saturday Night Live stage in the next few weeks. Emma Stone (Easy A and The House Bunny) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men) both announced their respective hosting gives during their recent visits to Jimmy Fallon’s talk show. NBC hasn’t confirmed the hosting gigs, but it’s safe to say it’s a sure thing, considering they both made announcements on a former SNL cast member’s show.

Stone will make her SNL debut on October 23, then Hamm will hit the stage the week later on October 30. This will mark Hamm’s third hosting duty and second time hosting the episode right before Halloween, in perfect time to for “Mad Men’s” season finale.

Let me preface this by stating first, that I classify myself as a casual Scissor Sisters fan. While I love a couple of their songs to death, I am nowhere near a hardcore fan like some people I know. I probably couldn’t name more than five songs to save my life. But after watching them live, consider me a convert of the church of the Sisters. Four words come to mind when describing the night, PHE·NOM·E·NAL. Seriously, it was amazeballs. One of the BEST.CONCERTS.EVER. It’s like going to a movie when you know nothing about the plot. Then walking out the theater, amazed at how genius the film was. The concert experience was exactly that.

My friend Joel (hardcore fan) and myself showed up to the concert to meet up with Stephen, Rich and our friends Craig and David. We all arrived in time to see one of their opening acts take the stage. DJ Sammy Jo, their tour DJ, did a great job of keeping the crowd upbeat despite the less-than-stellar weather. The concert took place at the Malkin Bowl, an outdoor venue in Stanley Park, which is normally a great intimate venue, when the sun IS shining. NOT so hot when it’s raining. Since it was general admission, we staked our claim on a great spot, counting the seconds til Jake Shears and Ana Matronic strutted their stuff on stage.

Summer to Fall: Songs for Transition

In: Music, Nic

The sun may be shining, but the air is cooler. I dunno about you, but I only have my windows and doors open half the time now. I consider taking a light jacket or hoodie when I leave the house. And I don’t think I’ve worn shorts for a couple of weeks. Fall has fallen upon us.

As soon as the seasons shift, so does my choice of music. Traditionally, cooler weather brings strong bouts of Roisin Murphy’s “Ruby Blue” album, or a marathon of The Smith’s Greatest Hits. Although these are in circulation in my world right now, I’ve found a small playlist I’ve made is helping me remember a busy, sweaty summer, and getting me amped for for the changing leaves.
