Last night I made my way out to the El Rey Theatre here in LA, CA to see Death Cab for Cutie live in concert. My ex-bf Erik is a huge emo/hipster and it was his influence that got me into Death Cab/Postal Service/etc. We never got to see the band in concert when we were together so last night was my first DCFC show. I am happy to report that the show was really fantastic. More »

Last night, the judges on NBC‘s singing competition show The Voice, performed a cover of the Queen classic song We Are The Champions to show the contestants how it’s done. Adam Levine was joined by Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and finally Christina Aguilera for the performance which was, IMHO, fun if not spectacular. There were deffo highlights of the performance and some performers sang better than others but overall, it was a great treat to watch. Check out video of The Voice version of We Are The Champions below. More »

The DC Comics film Green Lantern won’t open in theaters until June 17 but today we get to see 8 video clips which gives us, essentially, 8 minutes of the film. Spread out over the course of the film — from before Hal Jordan becomes Green Lantern up to his climactic final battle scene with Parallax — these clips kinda let you watch the film before the film is even released. Now, I’m not a big fan of watching too much footage from films before they are released but … I kinda slipped and watched all of these clips myself. If you want to watch all or some of these Green Lantern clips, you can do so below. More »
