Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Trailer!

30 Jun

Sorry a bit late on this one, but was out of town! Either way, it’s been a trending topic on Twitter since it was released. While Deathly Hallows might be the weakest book of the series – this has to be the most dramatic trailer to date for the films. I know I’ll be there front and center opening night. And in case you missed it, be sure to check out our newest Harry Potter fan, Genesis, and his live blogging of the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Monday Music Madness: “Misery” – Maroon 5 & “Right On (feat. Joanna Newsom & S.T.S.)” – The Roots

Misery – Maroon 5

I know, I know – now before you say anything, let me just say that this song isn’t bad. Maroon 5 has been off the map for a while now, but they’ve come back with a new single, ‘Misery‘ that sounds like their typical funk-pop. In true Maroon 5 fashion, this song will get stuck in your head, at least it did with me. Plus, it’s a “fun Summer song” (ugh can’t believe I just said that). So check it out below.:

Like this song? Check out their new album Hands All Over dropping on September 21.

Reaction To USA’s Goal Around the World

24 Jun

So unless you are living under a rock – you know that Landon Donovan scored for the USA in the 90+ minute of our game versus Algeria. This one moment was one of the greatest feelings in my life – pure euphoria. Well someone has taken some of the best (not sure why DC wasn’t on there..) and compiled them into a great video that will have you chanting with them – U-S-A! And it doesn’t hurt he chose one of the best songs from any movie (Rudy).

Look out world – the USA is starting to follow soccer! And if you still don’t like soccer, just try explaining yourself without sounding like a moron.

Live Blog: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

24 Jun

So I wrote this post back on March 31, 2010 – but I figured, nobody wants to read me live blogging, right? Wrong. Apparently, live blogging was an enjoyable experience for some of you out there. Mind you, when I wrote this, I was still fresh to the HP franchise, so I had no idea what was going on. But, I’m proud (I guess) to say that I’ve completed all 7 books and watched all of the movie so far. Yay nerd-om. So here is my “live” experience with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
_____________________________________________________

Ok, let’s get this out of the way. No – I have not read any of the Harry Potter books nor have I seen any of the Harry Potter movies. I know, let that sink in. Why, you ask? I don’t know. I never got around to it, it wasn’t my cup of tea, I’m more of a Lord of the Rings person – you pick an excuse for me. The point is, I never had anything to do with the “magical world” of Harry Potter.

Well, that’s kind of untrue now. A couple of weeks ago, I was forced to listen to something else besides music at work when the “iron curtain” came down in the form of music stations being blocked at work. So, my co-worker was kind enough to let me borrow his Harry Potter audio books.

And I have to admit, they’re pretty good. Sure there are some major plot points that have been ruined for me, but that’s ok. I never thought that I’d actually give this series a chance. But after listening to the first book, I was hooked. (LAWL that rhymed).

After “reading” a bit of the third book, I realized that I still haven’t seen any of the movies. So, I Netflix’d the first movie.

So, here is a “live” post about my thoughts on the movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I hope you find this entry ridiculous and entertaining. Also, if you’re one of those rare people that have never seen or read Harry Potter, there might be some spoilers in here, so be weary. So go pop in the first movie, sit down, grab some popcorn, and visualize I am there watching the movie alongside you!

  • Hagrid’s much smaller. Like a young, alcoholic Santa instead of the giant in the book.
  • WHY DOESN’T DUDDERS LOOK ARYAN THE WAY HE WAS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK?!
  • This should be called “Harry Potter and the Abrupt Beginning of the Movie: Just So We Can Get to Hogwarts”

Keep reading for more sassiness!

A new band has emerged from a sailboat off the East coast – they call themselves Tennis. A young married couple from Denver decided to buy a sailboat, learn to sail, and then along the way wrote about their experiences. The album is coming out with so much buzz, you should jump on the wagon quick. You can read their entire sail blog here.  [Limited Buy Here]

Live Blog: Tron Viewing

21 Jun

Now I might be the biggest fan of the new Tron: Legacy coming out this December, however I still have never seen the original! So I finally used my NetFlix account to go and grab it. And today, I am sitting down to watch it. In case you have never heard of this, here is a trailer below for it:

  • Okay, well that was an extremely cheesy looking DVD screen to choose from. Let’s go “start program!”
  • Ooo a bunch of dots…NO IT’S A CITY! NO IT’S FLYNN’S ARCADE!
  • Arcades bring back great memories of my childhood.
  • FIRST LIGHT RACE! WINNER!
  • Oh my God – that is the worst green screen work I’ve ever seen…what am I getting myself into.
