Another Death … DJ AM

DJAMSo, I just logged into MySpace and I see “Remembering DJ AM” .. wait – WHAT!? So, of course I head to PerezHilton.com and see that sure enough, DJ AM has indeed passed away. So sad! He was only 36 and had his whole life ahead of him!

Perez posted on his site that he believed the death might have had something to do with the plane crash DJ AM was recently in (along with Travis Barker of Blink-182); like he never got over it …. Ugh – was there no one close to him that could see he was having trouble?

According to the New York Post – DJ AM was found in a Manhattan apartment yesterday and was pronounced dead at the scene. There was also drug paraphernalia with him. SO SAD!

Seriously, what the hell is going on lately? It’s freaking depressing …


Totally Team Jacob

The newest trailer for Twilight Saga: New Moon has come out and it focuses on introducing Jacob and his huge role in this second book/film. There are several ‘new’ things to watch out for in this trailer – Victoria’s much redder hair (was hoping they would do this as her hair is mentioned as looking like “fire” in the water), gorgeous Dakota Fanning as “Jane” (perfect!) and loads of sexy wolf-boys!

I am SO excited about the release of this movie! I need to steal back my books from my friend so I can read “New Moon” again before it comes out on the big screen!

What do you think of the trailer? Are you excited about “New Moon” coming out?

Director John Hughes Dead At 59 (awaiting sources)

John Hughes – one of Hollywood’s most successful directors – the KING of the 80′s / 90′s teen movies with such hits as “The Breakfast Club;” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off;” “Sixteen Candles;” and “Weird Science” – not to mention “The Great Outdoors” and “Home Alone” – has died at age 59.

According to reports Hughes had heart attack during a walk while he visited family in Manhattan.

TMZ has posted the news – so I know a lot of fans are waiting for ‘legit’ news sources to update.

All I gotta say is … what the hell is going on lately? Everyone is freaking dying!!

Cum On Feel the NOIZE!

ROA_album cover Anyone who knows me knows that there are two things in life that I LOVE – theatre and music! I especially love 80′s music and ‘hair bands’ like Quiet Riot, Mötley Crüe, Twisted Sister, Warrant and Poison (yummm …. Brett Michael’s). Well – how about COMBINING the two? Yes – I mean a Broadway musical that is all 80′s ‘Hair Band’ rock and roll! That, my dears, is the new Broadway musical sensation “ROCK OF AGES!”

New Line Records has released Original Broadway Cast Recording of five-time Tony Award nominated “ROCK OF AGES.”  For those of you not in the know, Rock of Ages is the new Broadway musical starring American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis (yummmm …..). Set in 1987 in a legendary Sunset Strip rock club, a small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer and they fall in love to the greatest metal songs of the 80′s. The musical is an arena-rock love story told through the hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and more.

I had the opportunity to test out the soundtrack and when I received it in the mail believe me it promptly went into my car cd player. It’s cheesy-ness is outrageous – just as you would expect Hair Metal meets Broadway would be. It was awesome! It’s ‘Grease’ if ‘Grease’ were set in Hollywood in the 80′s!

Rock of Ages stars American Idol’s Constantine Maroulis (Tony Award nomination for Best Actor in Musical), Amy Spanger (The Wedding Singer ) and James Carpinello (Xanadu and Saturday Night Fever). The show was nominated for five Tony® awards including Best Musical, Best Actor in a Musical (Constantine Maroulis), Best Director (Kristin Hanggi), Best Costume Design (Gregory Gale) and Best Sound Design (Peter Hylenski)!

Here is the tracklist:

  1. Just Like Paradise / Nothin’ But A Good Time
  2. Sister Christian
  3. We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands
  4. I Wanna Rock
  5. We’re Not Gonna Take It
  6. Heaven/More Than Words / To Be With You
  7. Waiting For A Girl Like You
  8. Wanted Dead Or Alive
  9. I Want To Know What Love Is
  10. Cum On Feel The Noize / We’re Not Gonna Take It (Reprise)
  11. Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night
  12. Here I Go Again
  13. The Final Countdown
  14. Any Way You Want It / I Wanna Rock (Reprise)

  16. I Hate Myself For Loving You / Heat Of The Moment
  17. Hit Me With Your Best Shot
  18. Can’t Fight This Feeling
  19. Every Rose Has Its Thorn
  20. Oh Sherrie
  21. The Search Is Over
  22. Don’t Stop Believin’

I gotta say though – the main girl kinda had me wanting to pull my ears off. I really didn’t like her voice … But the rest of the songs were great. I would definitely see this show!! Anyone wanna sponsor me to Broadway to see it? ;)

Rock of Ages tickets are on sale now through November 1st. You can get them via the Rock of Ages website!

Les Lye from You Can’t Do That on Television – Dead

I know other 80′s kids will remember Les Lye as “Barth,” “El Capitano” (the guy always getting shot) or “Snake Eyes” (the horrible bus driver) from the Nickelodeon show “You Can’t Do That on Television” (which also starred Miss Alanis Morissette herself!) Well – Les Lye passed away at 84. According to his CTV obituary, the veteran broadcaster passed away on Tuesday. The cause is not known.

With fellow comic Bill Luxton, Lye co-created the comedy duo Uncle Will and Floyd, which appeared on Canadian TV for more than 20 years.

Lye is survived by his wife Johnni and three children.

I used to watch the show when I was quite little (probably in re-runs). The show was awesome – yet – incredibly gross! lol … It’s so funny though that the things they did on that show wouldn’t ever be on tv today (especially on a kids show) but there are so many other things that are so much worse on now!

Here is a clip featuring Les Lye as Barth:

Did you ever watch the show?

Adderall, Harry Potter and a Mayjah Headache

DSCF2676sm

Could I squeeze any other keywords into that post title? Geeze … seo much?! Anyway – I have a headache. I woke up with said headache. I’m not exactly sure if it’s a sinus headache or not because I took some Sudafed around 30 minutes ago and it seemed to be helping, but the headache came back a little. However; I began Adderall (for my A.D.D …. finally) a couple days ago and I am worried that the headache is coming from that. I ate breakfast – cereal – this morning, but maybe I need to eat something else. I wasn’t hungry for the cereal but I knew I had to eat something otherwise I’d  get “a massive headache” (according to my psych).

Oh – but I just started sneezing and the pressure seems to be going away a bit. So maybe it IS a sinus headache?

Went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince on Wednesday with my friend Melissa. I still have to write up my ‘full’ review but I do have a word of advice (that I should be taking myself!) The book and the movie are separate entities – go into the theater KNOWING that there will be changes. All movies based on books are different – so be expecting that. Take this movie for what it is and you will like it much more. If you are expecting the movie to be just like the book you will HATE it. Hopefully I didn’t spoil it for anyone – lol ….

Today I am taking hubby to see the movie while Xander is in daycare. Like a date! Maybe we will eat lunch (off the dollar menu) before the movie!
