One of my favorite directors, Robert Rodriguez, just released a teaser trailer for Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For and it looks phenomenal!! Another fav, JGL otherwise known as Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in the sequel with returning cast members Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, and Mickey Rourke. Lady Gaga also has a part, but we’ll have to wait until August 22, 2014 to see what that’s all about. Watch the teaser above!
So I loved the acoustic performance that U2 did of Oscar nominated song, “Ordinary Love” on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and after the performance at The Oscars, I am now obsessed. Although this isn’t the acoustic version the original is just as amazing.
The song was made for the biographical film, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom and was released last year, but clearly hasn’t gotten all the praise it deserves. Awesome message and such a heartfelt tune. They released an official lyric video for the song back in November and then followed up with this video which is a combo of a music video and a lyric video. Have a look above.

GOLDFRAPP: TALES OF US is a 30-minute film that was inspired by Goldfrapps’ latest album, Tales of Us. Directed by Lisa Gunning, it features five individual stories based on love, loss, madness, and identity that were taken from the album. This will be a ‘One Night Only’ event and will be shown in select theaters nationwide on March 4, 2014 at 7:00pm. Right after the showing, a live performance from Goldfrapp will be shown in all cinemas from Air Studios London. Take a look at the trailer above and buy your tickets here.
Oh man, am I loving Scarlett Rabe‘s single, “Battle Cry“. It’s intense, with a head bopping melody and incredibly catchy lyrics. I’m always happy when I find a song that I can play repeatedly without getting tired of it and “Battle Cry” is definitely one of them. The piano is awesome and so I’m not surprised to find out that she’s classically trained and has been deemed a “classical piano prodigy”. Scarlett may be a newcomer, but with soul like her’s, I think we’ll be hearing a lot from her. Personally, I can’t wait for more. Have a listen to “Battle Cry” above.
