The TV Guide
On Monday night I got to see singer/songwriter Lenka perform an acoustic concert and last night I was able to see her perform a second concert, this time with a full band. As I mentioned before, Lenka is one of my new fave performers so I was really happy to see her perform two different shows over two different nights in celebration of her new album Shadows which was released yesterday. Last night I managed to record some video to share with all y’all so you can have a taste of just how great Lenka is live. Click below to see a few photos and watch a few videos from last night’s performance. More »
Coming June 29
Back in October we learned that actress Agnes Brucker was cast to portray the late Anna Nicole Smith in an upcoming made-for-TV biopic film titled The Anna Nicole Story for Lifetime TV. Today we get our first look at the newly released trailer for the movie. 6 years after Anna Nicole‘s death, we will be reminded on June 29 just how sad her life truly was. I’ve been blogging for a long time and I remember the very tragic way Anna‘s life played out and then ended. Watching this trailer brought back so many disturbing memories from Anna‘s last days. Because I am a big fan of director Mary Haron (the woman who directed the brilliant film American Psycho) I have to admit that I am very curious to see how this movie turned out. I have every confidence that it will be better than Lifetime‘s biopic about Elizabeth Taylor so it has that going for it. Anna Nicole‘s life was just so tragic … I don’t think it’s going to be easy to see all that sadness play out again. The Anna Nicole Story will premiere on Lifetime on June 29, will you be tuning in?

"Hello, people of Facebook / You Tube / I-Don't-Really-Know-Who's-Watching-This"
Paris Katherine Jackson, the only begotten daughter of the late Michael Jackson, is turning out to be a pretty normal teenager which, I’m sure, will come as a big relief to many. Like many normal teenage girls these days, Paris likes to make videos and share them online with friends as well as the world wide web at large. This week, a 20 minute makeup tutorial that Paris film made its way online and as you can see in the embed above, it gives us some very cute insight as to who Paris is as a young woman. The video is long, even I haven’t watched it the whole way thru (and, really, I’m not the target audience) but just watching for a few minutes will let you see Jackson‘s very cute, very bubbly personality. I don’t know if she’s offering great makeup tips or not but she does look cute trying to do so.
Oh, and in unrelated Paris Jackson news, the British tabloid The Daily Star is claiming that she is being considered for the role as the new Dr. Who. LOL.
Kickstarter My Heart
For the past 10 years, Detroit filmmakers James R. Petix and Sarah Biblia have been working tireless on a new music documentary about the Detroit garage rock scene titled It Came From Detroit and at long last the film is ready for release. Starting today, YOU can make a donation on the film’s Kickstarter page to help get the documentary into production. The filmmakers themselves can better explain the documentary than I ever can but in a nutshell, it’s an exciting inside look at the Detroit music scene that has given birth to bands like White Stripes, Von Bondies, The Detroit Cobras, Gore Gore Girls and many, many more. I think it’s no secret that Detroit and it’s thriving and exciting music scene is very near and dear to my heart so I’m really hoping to do all that I can to help get this film into the hands of fans. Click below to learn more about It Came From Detroit and learn how YOU can help get the film released. More »
