Watch: ‘Homeland’ Releases A New Teaser For Its Upcoming 4th Season

Carried Away
"... it has been one war waged 14 times"

Last month we got to check out the first, full-length trailer for the upcoming 4th season of Homeland on Showtime and today, courtesy of Buzzfeed, we get to check out the just-released new teaser trailer for the season. While the first trailer showed a bit of plot, this new teaser is all mood. I love Homeland a lot so I’m excited for the new season, even if I’ve yet to be wowed by any of the promo stuff we’ve seen thus far. All I really need is copious amounts of Claire Danes ugly crying and I’ll be all set, to be quite honest. The new season of Homeland premieres on Showtime on October 5.

#ThrowbackThursday: 10 Great Musical Performances From Robin Williams

His raps are EVERYTHING

This morning I wrote a bit about Robin Williams, and how his passing—and his daughter—may inspire change in social media policies. I don’t know about you guys, but I am not finished celebrating this man’s career yet. Today I put on Hook for my boys (okay, mainly for me), and I thought we could keep the party going for #ThrowbackThursday. Click inside for more!

Watch: This Is How Broadway’s ‘Aladdin’ Paid Homage To The Late Robin Williams

In honor of one of the Greatest Entertainers of all Time
"We're only going to do this once ..."

The cast of the new Broadway musical Aladdin paid homage to the late Robin Williams this week with a special, one-time-only audience sing-a-long performance of Friend Like Me, a song that Williams recorded first for the Disney animated feature film Aladdin. As you can see in the embed above, Tony Award-winner James Monroe Iglehart (who won his award for playing the Genie in the Broadway version of Aladdin) led the cast, crew and audience in a special rendition of Friend Like Me after their performance Tuesday night. This homage was really lovely, I think. Please enjoy.

#Ferguson And The Truth About Our American War Zone

Social Media At Its Best

This morning I wrote a piece about Twitter at its worst. The death of Robin Williams was and is a tragedy, and some (certainly not most) of the responses from social media are also a tragic reflection of the worst of our kind, and the worst things our technology has to offer. In light of another tragedy—the murder of Michael Brown an unarmed 18 year-old in Ferguson, Missouri by police—we can see social media at its best. A couple of years ago I interviewed the director of the Occupy Wall Street documentary #whilewewatch, and he spoke about being inspired by social media activism, which developed in direct response to the lack of real (and accurate) news coverage. I had a very similar conversation with Oscar-nominee Jehane Noujaim, who made a film about the Egyptian revolution. This happens every time there is organized protest that the authorities then turn into a “war zone.” Click inside for more.

The Darkness
Featuring Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

Back in June we got our first listen of Ryan Adams‘s new single Gimme Something Good and today we get to see the official music video for the track. As you can see above, Ryan managed to get the legendary Elvira, Mistress of the Dark to appear in the clip with him … and it just rules all. I really love this song so much. I’m really anxious to hear the rest of Ryan‘s self-titled new album. If you love Ryan, Elvira or just good music in general, I suggest you check out the video above.

First Look: Iggy Azalea And Rita Ora Release A ‘Kill Bill’-Inspired Music Video For ‘Black Widow’

Homage
Someone really loves Tarantino movies

Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora just dropped the official music video for Iggy‘s new single Black Widow and as you can see above, the clip is heavily influenced by Quentin Tarantino‘s movie Kill Bill Vol. 1 and, to a lesser degree, Pulp Fiction. Earlier today we saw Ariana Grande‘s video for Break Free that appears to have been inspired by Britney Spears‘s music video for Oops! … I Did It Again but the influence here is much more evident. I like the video. The song? That’s another story. Have a look at Black Widow above and see what you think. Are you charmed by the Tarantino tribute? Do you like the track?

Watch: This ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ And ‘Frozen’ Mash-Up Will Either Make Your Day Or Ruin Your Life

I really love/hate this
Hans Christian Grey

So … someone got the bright idea to mash-up the trailer for the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey with film footage from the animated movie Frozen to come up with something called Fifty Shades of Frozen. Part of me is totally entertained by the cleverness of this mash-up. Another part of me is horrified at the idea that Princess Anna and Hans might have a sadomasochistic sexual relationship. OY! Click the embed above to watch Fifty Shades of Frozen … then click below to watch the trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey for comparison. Enjoy!! More »
