4 Steps To A Pitch Perfect Relationship

I loved ”Mamma Mia!”, the ABBA movie. I loved “Hairspray.” So of course I also loved “Pitch Perfect.” Watching a group of misfits perform everything from Ace of Base to Rihanna together is infectiously, vicariously fun. But aside from the singing (though the singing is so good!) this is a story of unexpected friendships and life-changing love.

The plot is simple: Aubrey (Anna Camp), the Queen Bee of the Barden Bellas, an all-women’s college a cappella group, desperately tries to revive the girls’ reputation after an unfortunate incident at last year’s finals competition: You only have to YouTube “a cappella barf” to find out what that is. Will they or won’t they triumph in finals this time around? Keep reading »

“Games Of Thrones”‘ George R.R. Martin Is Planning To Hide After A Specific Episode Next Season

You know when that thing happened to Ned Stark in Season 1 of HBO’s ”Game of Thrones” and everyone who hadn’t read the book (and some who had) completely freaked out? There’s more stuff like that to come and A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin is kind of scared about how you’ll react. So scared, in fact, he’s considering leaving the country to hide out for a while. (No spoilers for upcoming plot lines!) Read more…

As we eagerly await the season three premiere of “Downton Abbey,” consider this over tea and crumpets: life before Lady Mary was mucking up her love life and Lady Sybil was wearing pants. Julian Fellowes, the creator of of the show, has announced his plans for a spin-off drama, following the courtship of Lord and Lady Grantham. At a recent BAFTA lecture, he said, “I do have an idea of doing a prequel of the courtship. He only fell in love after they married. He married her for the money. That is something he came to feel quite guilty about.” Here’s what we have to say on the matter: SMASHING. Cora … that minx. And now I’ll have to talk in a British accent for the rest of the day.

Alanis Covers "Basket Case"

Last week, Billie Joe Armstrong melted down onstage at the IHeartMusic Festival and over the weekend he checked into rehab for substance abuse. Here his pal Alanis Morrissette covers Green Day’s song “Basket Case” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in the most Alanis Morrisette-y way possible, meaning as a ballad.  She told Billboard.com, “We’re all figuring it out. So let’s just support the fragile artist. I’ve always been an advocate and supporter of artists and Billie Joe to me — he deserves to be bowed down to, He’s been in this industry for a long time and so for him to experience the consequence of a system that kind of set it up for him to fail is a travesty to me.” Alanis sang “Basket Case” earlier this week at a concert in Pomona, California, too. I prefer the Green Day version, to put it politely, but it’s sweet the way she’s publicly supporting her friend.

"I wanna ride bikes with you?"

First off, apologies for the crap quality of this video: the original was taken down, but thankfully (?) someone was able to make a second copy. This clip features a bride named Jacquelyn who is professing her love to her husband  Todd Evan Krieger. The video was presented to Todd — who she refers to as Tadeo — at the couple’s recent wedding, and then somehow it made it to Huffington Post’s wedding page, where it was then picked up by Buzzfeed and Gawker. Both sites seem to think this video is a sign that the apocalypse is nigh or something, and refer to it as “the worst thing in the entire universe.” But I don’t know, I didn’t think it was that bad. Sure, it’s kind of annoying that this woman felt she had to put this up on YouTube, rather than just share it with her husband, but she certainly shouldn’t be totally vilified for it. Though yes, the song is really long and annoying.
