I get a little warm in my heart when I think of 'Winter'
We are just over 2 weeks away from the much-anticipated re-release of Tori Amos‘s debut album Little Earthquakes and her sophomore album Under The Pink on April 14 and to get fans excited, live audio of Tori‘s song Winter from LE has been released. The double-cd reissues of Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink will include b-sides and live tracks from the early ’90s era so this beautiful rendition of Winter, embedded above, will be included on the LE release. I’ve owned these recordings for many, many years now but I’m so excited by these reissues that I plan on purchasing them on release day. Have a listen of Winter above and tell me you don’t want to buy a copy of Tori‘s re-released albums even if you own them already ;)
I LOLed more than once
Last week we saw the promo videos for Dwayne The Rock Johnson‘s 4th time hosting Saturday Night Live and last night, he got the job done quite well, actually. I’m not sure that I was expecting much from his episode but I was very pleasantly surprised by how funny most of the skits were last night. The cold open skit, embedded above, that revolved around The Rock Obama was a great indicator that the rest of the episode would bring the LULz. The skit about Disney‘s live-action Bambi movie was another fave (but The Jungle was just too damn funny). Click below to watch all of the SNL skits from last night’s episode and see how funny The Rock really is as SNL host. I gotta say, now I’m looking forward to his 5th time hosting as well. More »
Her first public post-surgery appearance
Last week, Angelina Jolie bravely shared with the world her decision to have preemptive surgery to have her ovaries removed in order to reduce her cancer risk. Last night, she made her way to The Forum here in the Los Angeles area to attend the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards with her daughters Zahara Marley and Shiloh Nouvel as her dates. I guess the “story” is that yesterday’s event was Angelina‘s first public event since she underwent her surgery but for me, the real story is that she enjoyed a really fun outing with her children. Look at the ecstatic joy on her daughters’ faces when Angelina won her Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Villain for her starring role in Maleficent. It’s insane how big her daughters have gotten but it’s really, really amazing to see them looking so well … and so happy and proud of their mom. Check out the photos in this gallery, I promise that they will brighten up your day.
"Welcome James, it's been a long time"
Last December we first learned that the new James Bond movie will be titled Spectre and it will hit theaters at the end of this year. Last month, we got our first look at the first promo photo released from Spectre. Today, we get to feast our eyes on the first teaser trailer for the much-anticipated sequel. As you can see above, James Bond appears to have some secrets that he’s been hiding and it would appear that those secrets are going to come to light when James Bond: Spectre opens in theaters this November. I can’t wait!! This first look at the film is sooo good, right?

Meet the Wolf Pack
We are just 3 weeks away from the premiere of the third season of Orphan Black so the promo push for the new season is in full swing. Last week we got to see a scene from the Orphan Black season 3 premiere episode and today we get to check out a great new teaser trailer. The new season of OB will focus on the introduction of the male clones from Project: Castor and as you can see above, they look like they are going to be a fun bunch. Gah! I can’t wait for this show to return. Orphan Black season 3 premieres on BBC America on April 18, my body is READY!

"They tried to make it about race. I don’t think that’s fair"
One thing that’s always interesting about race relations and conversations about race is the fact that most people believe that if they’re not an active member of the KKK, and they’ve never used the word “nigger” as a racial slur (and even if they have, but it was just an honest mistake… or whatever), then they are not racist, nor have they ever practiced racism. I’m sure the Ferguson mayor, James Wallace Knowles III, doesn’t think he’s a racist. But when you refuse to acknowledge or see racism in the very city you’re supposed to be running (or in any city, anywhere), you are a racist. Or a coward. Probably both. So here’s racist/coawrdice Ferguson mayor saying more racist ish, without even wearing a white hood over his head.
Audiences will meet Kurt for the first time
A couple of weeks ago, we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming documentary film Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck directed by Brett Morgan but executive produced by Cobain‘s daughter Frances Bean. Today we get to see an interview with Morgan about the film. According to Brett, audiences will be introduced to Kurt Cobain for the first time in his film because there is much that the public doesn’t yet know about him. We can look to HBO for the release of Montage of Heck but the film will show in select theaters so that it can be considered for Academy Award nomination. This is a pretty interesting interview but I’m just so ready to see the actual film itself.
