Through a medium of Philadelphia blues and jazz with numerous spin-offs of various soul artists blending into his own style, John Legend collaborates with the well-known band The Roots for the first time in the album Wake Up! The soul-induced artist incorporates a mix of R&B voices from a Stevie Wonder swing to a Marvin Gaye melody.
As this album was made with President Barack Obama?s election in mind, most of the songs adhere to a theme of change.
Whether it is their creativity, their innovation or just their pure skill to perform, several people are pursuing their own idea of what it means to be a musician.
A band that seeks a progressive art style is Foray M. An original project conceived by two juniors, guitarist Samuel Rosenberg and synthesizer-vocalist Keith Boylan, the band has grown to include freshman drummer Derek Boylan and bassist Annamarie Nyirady, a junior at Madison High School.
Halo: Reach, the final Halo installment to be made by Bungie, the original Halo creators, is set directly prior to Halo: Combat Evolved. Humanity has been at war with the Covenant, a group of aliens embarking on a religious venture that involves annihilating humanity. Planet Reach is the military stronghold of humanity, and its location has been kept secret to the Covenant for the duration of the war until the beginning of Reach.
NBC's newest prime time show, The Event, was one that could be missed. Though not a bad show, The Event was nothing exceptional.
The show uses a flashback technique that provides the viewer with an irrelevant details about the President (Blair Underwood) and background information for the main character?s story.
Most of the show revolves around the actions of protagonist Sean (Jason Ritter) and his girlfriend, Leila (Sarah Roemer). The couple is embarking on a romantic cruise in which Sean intends to propose to Leila.
Hanson was a staple in the music repertoire of every girl in the late 1990s. They rose to fame on the wings of a song with lyrics nearly impossible to understand and a chorus comprised of total gibberish.
Thirteen years after their hay day, their legacy in pop culture is little more than a reference to their only famous single ?MMMBop? and infinite number to which they are the punch line.
In their first release, Elephant Shell, Tokyo Police Club moved at a frantic pace in most of their songs that would seem difficult for many artists to sustain. However, in their latest effort, Champ, they have not slowed down one bit.
Their new work remains as catchy and upbeat as ever, although the band has shown some signs of maturity as well. While many of their previous songs were simplistic beats with few complexities, the songs on this new album do occasionally take some time to slow down and explore some more nuanced elements.
Completely bogged down with clich?s and dripping with overdone ?jokes?, Killers is a physically painful waste of two hours. Although summer movies tend to be ridiculous and stupid by nature, this film takes it to a whole new level, failing to capture even a full minute of humor among the preposterous and dumb. Everyone involved should be drawn and quartered for committing such a criminally bad project to film.
New York Times bestselling author Emily Giffin?s novel Heart of the Matter is the story of two women whose lives are brought together by a tragic accident. On one side is Tessa, a happily married mom who recently gave up her career to stay at home with her two kids. Her husband Nick is a pediatric plastic surgeon. On the other side is Valerie, a single mom who has given up on relationships and love. At a slumber party, Valerie?s young son suffers burns, and Nick is the doctor who treats him at the hospital.
The summer movies lineup is filled to the brim, and, as with any set of choices, has good and bad options. The comedic stylings of the third movie in the Twilight series, which I hear is a full-movie buildup to a dramatic battle that does not actually take place, only brings the quality of summer movies lower. Additionally, The Last Airbender, directed by hack director M. Night Shyamalan, has a depressingly horrific lineup. But there are good choices as well, and I?ll direct you to the top two movies you need to see this summer.
The most recent product of the twisted mind of Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club, Survivor) employs the sense of the fast-paced, yet purposeful insanity that Palahniuk utilizes in each of his unique novels. Tell All embraces its author-mandated requirement to be utterly off-the-wall by exploring vintage Hollywood through the eyes of an image obsessed assistant/housekeeper/confidante to fading star Katherine Kenton.
