Biscuits- Kacey Musgraves

This song came out in March, but I just heard about it today. I guess it is because the music video just came out June 10. I think the song has a great message that a lot of people need to listen to, including me(sometimes). It speaks to me obviously because of how people give their negative opinion on equal rights.

What do you think of “Biscuits”?

Being Mean To Taylor Swift’s Mom

(04.10.2015) Thursday Taylor Swift told the world that her mother has been diagnosed with cancer. People were mostly supportive and comforting, but some internet jerks were still at it. I don’t get it, especially with something like cancer.

(03.27.2015) Today I am discussing Little Big Town’s new single “Girl Crush”. Country radio stations across the country are dropping it because their listeners say it supports the LGBT community. What are your thoughts?

The Next Two SNL Hosts

SNL has announced the next two hosts and musical performances for the October 26 and November 2 shows. The show is taking a week off this week and is replaying the first episode of the season.

On the October 26 episode Edward Norton will be hosting the show and Janelle Monae will be the musical guest. If you have no clue who Edward Norton is, you’re not alone cause I wasn’t sure either. He actually has done a lot of stuff on TV and in movies, but it looks like minor parts. He was the Hulk in the 2008 film The Incredible Hulk. You may know him from his most recent acting jobs in the films Moonrise Kingdom and The Bourne Legacy. Looks like the next film he is in doesn’t come out until 2014 and is called Birdman.

Janelle Monae should be a household name by now after seeing exposure from the song “We Are Young” by fun., which she was the featured artist. She has had two previous albums that I haven’t listened to yet, but those were before the fun. exposure. She just released an new album in September called The Electric Lady which I have heard some songs from. She has a great voice and her songs are great, so I am excited to see her perform on the show for the first time. She definitely is one that deserves to be heard by millions.

On the November 2 episode Kerry Washington will be hosting with Eminem as the musical guest. You have most definitely heard of Kerry Washington from ABC’s hit show Scandal. I don’t watch the show and know that she is in the show and what it’s about. Kerry was also in the critically acclaimed and widely talked about Django: Unchained that came out at the end of last year.

Eminem has been away for a few years, but he has returned to make an attempt to take back the rap throne. Can he do it? Possibly with songs like “Berzerk” he is destined to make a strong comeback with a new sound and vibe. His new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is set to be released November 5, so it is a good thing he is on this show the Saturday before. It will be good to give him more exposure to others that may not know he is back.

All in all I think it is hard for me to decide how these shows will go. I think the musical guests are solid for the next two episodes, but not sure on the hosts. It seems the hosts I think will be funny aren’t, and the ones I think won’t be funny are, so going by that, I would say these will be two funny episodes. We just got to remember that SNL is in a rebuilding phase.

What are your thoughts on the next two episodes of SNL? Let me know in the comment section below.

Zombies Eat Away Ratings Competition

AMC’s flagship show The Walking Dead got off to an amazing start last night when season four premiered with 16.1 million viewers. That beat its old record for the season three finale of 12.1 million viewers. The makes it the most watched television show of the season and even beat out the MLB and NFL games that were on TV. That within itself is an accomplishment and I applaud it. It’s not a surprise with so many viewers coming on to the show each season that many people got caught up over the summer to be able to watch the fourth season as it rolls out.

Now was the season premiere episode that great? I would be inclined to say no, not at all. I myself wanted to see more of what they’ve done with the prison to make it more hospitable for a village worth of people to easily live in the prisons confines. The episode has some action which was better than most episodes from last season. I do think it feels like we are almost entering a different chapter in the series which is why this episode did feel more like a pilot(as if the show was starting now, months after the initial outbreak). We got a glimpse at some problems that the prison may face with the fence protecting them, disease, and outsiders wanting inside the prison. Then we have the governor lurking around somewhere, but must no be too close since Michonne can’t seem to find him.

While I don’t think the episode was as good as it could have been, I won’t judge the series that hard. We are starting fresh with something new in a sense, and it needs to be set-up. Also with so many new viewers it is a good thing to start slower. Again, at least this episode was better than most from season three. Now, lets really ramp this show up and give us the action we want and deserve as long time viewers and fans of the series.

Walking On Air- Katy Perry

While “Roar” was a great song, but sounded too much like her Teenage Dream music. “Dark Horse” failed to impress me much, I mean, “white pop girl with black rapper man”, seen it and not that impressed. When I first heard “Walking On Air” I had no clue it was Katy Perry. While I think any Katy Perry album will do well and be a great album, I was beginning to get worried that maybe Prism wasn’t going to deliver the promised sound departure from Teenage Dream.

Then I heard “Walking On Air”…. I thought my iTunes Radio station was playing an old dance song from the 90’s. This song while borrowing from the 90’s, sounds totally different from anything on the radio right now. While she went the popular dance route with this track, she made it different by going with this 90’s euro-dance style. The song reminds me of the dance songs that I first heard as a youngster on 107.5 The River when they would do a Saturday night weekend dance thing in the late-90’s. I lived close to Nashville, but far enough that I always had to sit outside with my boombox to pick up the reception. Thank you, Katy for bringing that memory back to me. Out of the three songs released, “Walking On Air” is so far my favourite. Take a listen to this awesome track below.

The Starving Games

it was just a matter of time before The Hunger Games got its very own parody movie. There is something about these parody films that is enjoyable, even if you love the franchise its poking fun at. I love The Hunger Games movie and books, but The Starving Games looks funny, and I will definitely be watching it.

A lot of times the parody films tend to be badly written, or beat a joke into you so many times it gets old or boring, but sometimes there are those gems that really are funny. This years A Haunted House was done rather well I thought.

I probably wouldn’t pay money to see The Starving Games in theatres, but can you say Red Box Special? Watch the trailer for The Starving Games below. Let me know what you think about the trailer and parody films in general in the comment section.
