"Little lights flash in your eyes / Glowing by the fireside"
We are just about a week away from Xmas 2014 and everywhere you go, there is Xmas music everywhere. Some people love it, others don’t … but I’m a fan of Xmas music. I don’t really go for the traditional type of Xmas music but I do like creative versions of the classic carols or poppy, upbeat original songs. Owl City has released a new Xmas single titled Kiss Me Babe, It’s Christmas Time which you can hear in full above. Owl City is usually hit or miss for me but there is something I like about this song. Have a listen, see what you think.
Hoping for the Best
Amy Adams will host Saturday Night Live this coming weekend and today we get to see her promo videos for the show. Amy does her best to crack wise in the clips embedded above and while I did laugh once or twice, I really don’t have much faith that the actual show will be funny. BUT, One Direction will perform as the musical guest this weekend so … worth tuning in for? Maybe. Check out the video promos above and see if they do anything for you. SNL airs live from New York, as you know, this coming Saturday night.
Three weeks ago, we got our first quick look at the first footage from the upcoming 5th season of the HBO series Game of Thrones. Today, we get to see more quick footage in a new teaser video that was released a short time ago.

Click the embed above to watch this new footage … which you kinda have to squint to see — and don’t blink. Enjoy.

Thus far, we have seen emojis used in various fun ways … in music videos, as tattoos and even as Hallowe’en costumes. Today, we see that Bill Nye the Science Guy has come up with an inventive way to use emojis as a teaching tool. Click the embed above to watch Bill Nye explain the science of evolution by using emojis. As you can see, he used quite a few different emojis in very clever ways … but he never once uses the praying hands emoji because, science.
January 6, 2015
Earlier this month we learned that MTV has decided to dedicate the upcoming season of The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II will be dedicated to castmembers Diem Brown and Ryan Knight, who both passed away after the season wrapped filming production. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the new season of the show. As you may know, Diem‘s illness resulted in her early exit from the show and we get to see a bit of that at the start of this trailer. The rest of the trailer looks pretty standard so, yeah, it should be a great season. Battle of the Exes II will premiere on MTV on January 6 at 9PM.
"They did…whatever they were into"
Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is featured in the new issue of Elle magazine UK and altho the issue isn’t out just yet, the magazine is giving us an early look at his appearance in this new issue. Jamie looks insanely good, as usual, in the photo below from his spread and in his interview, he opens up to the magazine about his first visit to a real life sex dungeon. I guess the guy would go to any lengths to get into a movie character like kinky Christian Grey. Elle has also released a behind the scenes video from Jamie‘s photoshoot which, sigh, you just have to watch. More »
Britney Spears is Abstastic!
Yesterday we got a preview of Britney Spears‘s appearance in the January 2015 issue of Women’s Health magazine and today we get to see more from her shoot with the mag. E! News was invited to tag along on the set of her photoshoot and they bring us really fun behind the scenes video of Britney doing her thing. As you can see above, it looks like she had a blast on set and it shows in the great final photos. Make sure you watch the video to the end to learn about Britney‘s meditation practices. This is a really fun vid.
The First of 6 Xmas Concerts
Earlier this month, Mariah Carey gave a questionable live performance on live television when she sang at the Xmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center in NYC. Last night, Mimi more than redeemed herself with a stunning Xmas concert performance at the Beacon Theater in NYC. Mariah is performing 6 sold out shows at the Beacon Theater over the coming days as an Xmas gift to her fans and last night was the first show. Click through the gallery to see some photos from her performance last night then click below to watch video of Mimi performing the Xmas classic songs O Holy Night and Joy to the World. More »
The Final Nail in the Coffin
The final, abbreviated season of Glee will premiere on Fox on Friday January 9 and to get fans excited, a first promo video for the final season of the show has been unleashed upon the world. As you can see and hear above, actress Lea Michele sings the song Let It Go from Frozen in this season 6 promo — which not only proves that the song is WAY beyond overplayed but that the death knell for the series has rung. Click the embed above to see the death of Glee and Let It Go featured in this one promo video.
More MM For You
Back in October, Marilyn Manson released a new song titled Third Day of a Seven Day Binge which will be featured on his new album The Pale Emperor which is scheduled for release next month. Today we get to hear another new song from the album, a track titled Deep Six. MM is offering both Third Day and Deep Six for immediate download if you pre-order The Pale Emperor on iTunes … but you can click the embed above to hear this new song in full first before you make up your mind. Unfortunately, this new song sounds to me very much like most of the music that Manson has been putting out in recent years. I’m hopeful that this new album will feature some great new music but, thus far, I’ve yet to hear anything all that exciting. Have a listen, see what you think … do you like this new MM song?
