Watch Stevie Nicks On NBC’s ‘Up All Night’
March 31st, 2012 at 5:15 pm | |
On last week’s episode of the NBC comedy Up All Night, TV producer Reagan (Christine Applegate) tells the Oprah-like daytime talk show host Ava (Maya Rudolph) that she’s booked Stevie Nicks to perform on the show. The two ladies then hug and scream with excitement. As I was watching this, I was thinking, yeah, pretty much, I can see me and my girlfriends reacting the same way. I mean, c’mon, it’s STEVIE NICKS!
You can watch the full episode of Up All Night, titled “Letting Go,” here below, along with a video interview with Nicks, who talks about being a fan of Up All Night as well as of the actresses on the show, which is why she wanted to do the guest spot.
The episode is peppered with Nicks references and music, as well as several scenes with the artist, so if you’re a fan of the Fleetwood Mac songstress, you’ll LOVE this. Be sure to watch til the very end of the episode for an awesome sequence that I’ve dreamed of experiencing myself [...]
The Most Shocking Moments Of ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 1

March Is Metal: 20 MP3 Albums For Under $7 Each
This article only addresses events that happened during the first season of the HBO TV series Game Of Thrones, not how they were originally portrayed in the George R. R. Martin’s series of novels, A Song of Ice and Fire.
Game of Thrones has delivered unto us a show that is as rich as it is complex, a fantasy show flush with blood, lust, and treachery. To say that the bar hasn’t risen to unfairly high levels for the second season is an understatement, and saying that the show’s propensity for the truly shocking has added to those great expectations is certainly another.
In advance of Sunday night’s premiere of Season 2, we thought it best to highlight some of those shocking moments from Season 1; those scenes that made your jaw drop and your pulse quicken.
Warning: There are tons of spoilers beyond this point. [...]

Watch Ron Burgundy Prepare For His Big ‘Anchorman’ Sequel Announcement
Remember the Tronorail, Disney World’s Tron-themed monorail that operated in the theme park back in 2010 as a promotion for Disney’s Tron: Legacy? It caused quite the stir with some people outraged that Disney would put what they considered to be advertisements on the monorail.
Well, guess what? A new themed monorail is on the way to Disney World, this time for the Marvel Studios film The Avengers, according to the Disney Parks Blog. This Spring, one of the Magic Kingdom Park monorails will get an Avengers-themed makeover in time for the film’s opening on May 4.

March Is Metal: Disturbed’s ‘The Sickness’ MP3 For $6.99
Earlier this week, we brought you the news that comedy superstar Will Ferrell made a surprise appearance on the late night talk show Conan as the character Ron Burgundy, the egotistical news anchor with a heart of gold and a brain of vanilla pudding he played in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. His appearance was to wow the audience with a jazz flute jam and to make the special announcement that a deal had been worked out with Paramount Pictures for a sequel to the 2004 hit comedy to finally move forward.
Funny or Die, the website Ferrell co-created with friend and frequent collaborator (and co-writer and director of Anchorman) Adam McKay, has posted a video chronicling the moments before and after Ferrell’s Conan appearance. You can check it out here below [...]

Netflix Review: American: The Bill Hicks Story
As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deal for March 2012, David Bowie‘s Hunky Dory is on sale for only $5.
This wonderful 1971 album by music’s greatest chameleon, David Bowie, finds him in an early phase of his career. But, it is still a mélange of different sounds and styles that he would find himself interchanging as easily as shedding musical skin later on in his career. Hunky Dory, which contains one of his most well known songs, “Changes,” also has tunes as diverse as the cabaret style “Fill Your Heart,” the aching “Life on Mars?,” the steely knives pointed at the songs “Andy Warhol” and “Song for Bob Dylan,” the out and out rocking “Queen Bitch,” and the haunting “The Bewlay Brothers.”

I read The Hunger Games for a couple of reasons: pop culture relevance and simple curiosity. I wanted to get it read prior to the release of the film, too. The book is simple and incredibly melodramatic, but it’s also surprisingly engrossing and the characters are quite well rendered. It feels like a hundred other genre all-ages books I’ve read and it also lacks a central voice, other than the fact that “bad people suck,” to quote a friend. The classic genre films and books of this type had something to say deeper, and at least to the author, more important than just the adventures of so and so.
What this book and film has is a well-developed and interesting female hero in Katniss Everdeen. She’s strong and imperfect, but a good role model for young girls, unlike a certain vampire lover we all know too well. Now a good role model for young girls isn’t a requirement for me to like a book or movie, but if kids are going to grab onto this story, at least the hero is worth their time [...]

With The Avengers set for release a little over a month from now Marvel Studios has good reason to celebrate. A decade ago the idea of getting Earth’s mightiest heroes together in one movie was laughable given that the film rights to the various characters were owned by different Hollywood studios who weren’t exactly receptive to the idea of a collaboration that would force them to share the potential wealth with their Tinseltown rivals. It wasn’t until Marvel formed their own movie division and started financing blockbusters like Iron Man and Thor that the company could finally take control of their celluloid destiny [...]
