SHORT FILM / MUSIC (VIDEO): Best Coast's "Our Deal," directed by Drew Barrymore

There's one of many reasons as to why I'm posting this video up. One of them being the admiration I have for Drew Barrymore, who has suffered as the child star gone bad, out of control, and healed through the cameras of the media, and who has lived to tell the tale while increasing her resume, her talents, and surely, her creativity through the very lens that captured her years ago.

And not to mention, when I saw her directorial debut film "Whip It!" I was proud FOR her, because it's one of my favorite movies. She's chill and it shows through whatever she makes that it's OK to be chill as well, in this industry that's filled with lights, camera and TONS of action.

So, of course, after directing a film, it has to be cool to direct a music video as well. And she has! For the first time, Drew stepped into the Music Video Director seat and has created this great short film/music video for the indie band Best Coast's single "Our Deal." And she's brought to life some of young Hollywood's coolest crowd.

The short film is about two gangs where one of their members happen to fall in love, all while another one of their members gets jumped BY the other gang, causing a war. Featuring Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl in "Kick-Ass") and Tyler Posey (Scott in MTV's "Teen Wolf") as the love struck gangsters, Miranda Cosgrove (Carly in Nickelodeon's "iCarly") as the victim, and featuring the gang members from both sides you have Donald Glover (Troy in "Community"/rapper Childish Gambino), Shailene Woodley (Amy in ABC Family's "Secret Life"), and Alia Shawkat (Maeby in "Arrested Development"), this short film is boss.

Take a look for yourself.

NEW MUSIC (VIDEO): Frank Ocean's "Thinking About You"

Check the latest video from the growing household name Frank Ocean for his track, "Thinking About You."

I enjoy this song... Had no choice. My sister played it constantly on blast where I couldn't get away from the sounds TILL I liked it...

I got sucker punched :(

Latest Muppets Movie Trailer!

The Muppets mock "Girl With A Dragon Tattoo," in their latest trailer.

In case you were wondering...

And if you weren't... You're welcome :)

Jesus why is this trailer so awesome? The propaganda... Lawdamercy.

NEW MUSIC / ALBUM ALERT: Childish Gambino, "Bonfire"

Donald Glover -ahem, excuse my pardon- Childish Gambino, is coming out with a new album.

Called "Camp."

No more EP's. At least for now.

Finally, an LP. But this time, behind a record label.

Sir Gambino, who has been signed to Glassnote Records (the indie record label behind Mumford & Sons), will be releasing Camp sometime in November. Would have been earlier had he not been snatched up and officially introduced into the music world by being signed. HI-OH.

Aside from me being proud of his new home, I am also PSYCHED. To hear this album. Oh gosh... So, I totally sweated bullets of anticipation when a snippet of a track off Camp graced the interwebs, called "Bonfire."

Take a listen. Crawl into a rock. And come out when Camp releases. No need to worry about the world. JUST this fine piece of work.


BTW... Dude seriously loves white and asian girls, doesn't he? :'(

ANOTHER BTW... He's having a tour. PURCHASE TICKETS HERE. They officially go on sale tomorrow at 12 noon (10AM for West Coasters). For American Express card users, went on sale yesterday. So be quick as hell. NYC tickets to his last show sold out in three hours. Vultures...

LAST BTW, PROMISE... Season 3 of Community, next Thursday. Hype!

Idris Elba's Music Vid... Oh lawd... HAPPY FACE!

Idris Elba sings.

Well if you don't know, now you know. And when this beautiful chocolate man sings, you melt. And when you get to hear him sing WHILE watching him sing? You disintegrate. Because... It's Idris Elba.

Or... As for his alias--Driis.

Check out the video.

The "Other" Olsen Is An Up & Comer!

You guys know that there is more to the Olsens than just Mary-Kate and Ashley, right? Good... I just hope you're fully aware. And if you're not, introducing to you iiiiiiiis...

ELIZABETH OLSEN! Who is said to become indie film's newest star.

She's really pretty.

No, seriously. She's REALLY pretty.

Idk how great her acting chops are but apparently, if you're automatically getting a GQ interview, taking away from you being the youngest sibling of the richest siblings under 30 with their own franchise, then your chops must go ham...

The 22 year old stars in the indie thriller, Martha Marcy May Marlene. In which she goes nude, during a sacrificing scene. (O_O)

You've got the part.

NEW ALBUM ALERT: Florence + The Machine!

Florence and the Machine.

Always heard this group through the grapevine and came across their sounds while watching a TV commercial or while it played in the backdrop of a television show but I neevr truly paid attention till a while ago, when a contestant on "The Voice," sung their jam, "Dog Days Are Over." Certified Jam that I jam to till this day.

From there I researched more tunes and fell deeper and deeper into their music till I was literally FALLING into it. It's so intoxicating, and also right up my ally.

Well, for you already made fans who are judging me for being so late on their coolness... F&TM are coming out with a new LP, dropping on Halloween in the UK and hopefully soon after in the US, called "Ceremonials." And if you haven't checked out the first preview for said album here, then do so.

AND after that, check out another preview track from their new album above called Shake It Out. I NEED A DOWNLOAD LINK ASAP. I love it... I love them... Fangirl moment.

And below is the album cover and tracklist for "Ceremonials." GOSH... The beauty before my eyes.


01. Only If for Night
02. Shake It Out
03. What The Water Gave Me
04. Never Let Me Go
05. Breaking Down
06. Lover to Lover
07. No Light No Light
08. Seven Devils
09. Heartline
10. Spectrum
11. All This and Heaven Too
12. Leave My Body

Drake's Deception Hits TV!

While I was at Fashion Night Out last night (it WAS amazing!), many folks sat their tushes down and enjoyed the NFL Kick-off, which was ever so kind as to also kick off the first Uncharted 3 TV spot!

For any fan who didn't keep up with the news for the game from E3, the Uncharted 3 BETA and the trailers they've released, they probably got a major kick out of it. Psh, I got a kick out of it just because!
