HEART
HEART

Do you get goosebumps when you hear music that is beyond thrilling? I do, and let me tell you–I had goosebumps all the way up to my hair last night after watching Seattle’s own HEART  (Ann and Nancy Wilson) brrrrrinnnng it hard with “Kick It Out” on The Late Show With David Letterman.

Watch it til the very end…after Ann and Nancy kick everyone’s ass into orbit, Dave Letterman damn-near loses his mind. It’s awesome.

If you aren’t aware by now, Foo Fighters are Dave’s guest band every single night this week, and Dave Grohl’s HBO mini-series “Sonic Highways” is premiering Friday, October 17. DVR the crap outta this thing–here’s the trailer!

Honestly. I love Dave Grohl so bad. Hey–wanna see something funny? Watch this:

Listening to Dave Grohl talk about music and his parents…then discuss more music and his own kids, is more than great. It’s delightful.

I’m pretty much wigging out over the tremendousness of the trailer for the ‘Behind The Candelabra‘, the story of Liberace (played by Michael Douglas) and his paid gigolo long-time boyfriend and chauffeur, Scott Thorson (effortlessly portrayed by Matt Damon).  Good LORT this is going to be a CLASSIC.

Take a look at the clip, won’t you?

 

Honestly. I could watch that 90 second trailer on a gotdamb loop.  Get out you feathers and furs and get IN jacuzzi tubs, because THIS will be EHHHH-PIC.

(NONE of this has been written with a drop of sarcasm, by the by. Did you SEE pretty-girl Rob Lowe??)  I’ve got the vapors.

Beyonce Presents Blue Ivy’s FACE To Get You To Watch Her HBO Documentary

“Life Is But A Dream”

Lots of y’all are pretty jaded when it comes to Beyonce and her Perfect Life…and I tend to agree to an extent.  But we’re all here for one thing and one thing ONLY.  Blue Ivy’s FACE, which has never been seen until it’s time to pimp out the HBO “documentary” (eyeroll) Life Is But A Dream airing tomorrow night.  If you don’t know what I’m referring to, this is how HBO is promoting the special:

Multiple Grammy®-winner, entrepreneur and actress Beyoncé will be the focus of an intimate feature-length HBO documentary film debuting Feb. 16, 2013, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.  Directed by the superstar, the film is a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.

“Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person,” said Lombardo.  “Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the 

“Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”

“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” said Beyoncé.  “Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”

The film is a multi-faceted portrait of the 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer, businesswoman, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother, showing off the extraordinary gifts that have made her a global phenomenon, and stripping away the veneer of stardom. It includes extensive first-person footage, some of it shot by Beyoncé on her laptop, in which she reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother last year.

The film sheds light on her childhood in Houston, with home movies revealing the close bond she built with her family and charts the challenges Beyoncé felt when she decided to manage her career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment.  The film also captures the intense physical and emotional demands she goes through in the studio, preparing for live performances, running a business and her family life including her return to the spotlight after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012.

I’m already grinding my teeth over the pretentiousness of it all.  I don’t know if I’ll even watch it, because Lord knows, I’ll yell at the TV too much already. (You should’ve heard me last night during that “certain part” on Scandal last night.  “Daaaaayuuummmmm!” was probably heard all the way across town.)  Oh–you’re waiting to see The Golden Platinum Child, aren’t you?

 

I’m pretty sure Beyonce had NOTHING to due with this child and she’s 100% Sean Carter’s baby.  I don’t know how he did it, but it goes to show what Money + The Illuminati can do.  Just kidding. (Not really.) Wait, yeah I am. Or not.

A show of hands if you’re gonna watch this hot mess?
