“The most expensive production to ever hit Broadway, “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” left the audience (and the cast) hanging in its preview performance Sunday night (Nov. 28). The New York Post says the show’s high-tech stunts went “completely awry,” including wires dropping on the audience, scenery missing pieces and the show’s star Natalie Mendoza was suspended helplessly in midair during the climatic end to Act I.
As Mendoza finished the number “Rise Above” while suspended over the audience, a wire malfunction left her there — for seven or eight minutes, while stagehands worked to figure out the problem. In the first act alone, the show was halted four times for technical difficulties…”
Full audio tracks from “Special Education,” the Nov. 30 episode of “Glee,” have been released.
Dueling versions of the Evita power ballad “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” featuring Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer), will be heard in the episode. Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Chord Overstreet (Sam) take the leads on “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” with Naya Rivera (Santana) socking out “Valerie” and Darren Criss (Blaine), Colfer and the Dalton Academy Warblers blending their tones on “Hey, Soul Sister.”
Here is the full version of T.I’s new single, “Castle Walls”, from his upcoming No Mercy album. The song features Christina Aguilera and was produced by Alex da Kid. Have a listen.
“Observing the estate through the gate from the outside looking in / Bet you would think I got it made, better look again / I got a butler, got a maid and a mansion / The belief is that I’m living out a millionaire fantasy…”
“A sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths.” - Joss Whedon
Dang, must be kinda fucked up to hear something you created is being turned into a movie (again!). Best part though was when he said:
“I can, however, take this time to announce that I’m making a Batman movie. Because there’s a franchise that truly needs updating. So look for The Dark Knight Rises Way Earlier Than That Other One And Also More Cheaply And In Toronto, rebooting into a theater near you.”
I am not watching this so-called Buffy movie if it does not include Joss Whedon or Sarah Michelle Geller. For me there is NO Buffy without Joss or Sarah, or any of the Scooby Gang for that matter. Even though technically I know there was a Buffy before Sarah but still… Sarah IS Buffy!
“The woman who insists “I’m your prostitute, you gon’ get some” on charging new single “Get Some” isn’t the same “shy, shy, shy” girl who cooed longingly throughout her 2008 debut LP, Youth Novels. Now 24, Lykke Li has done some serious growing up over the last few years, and we’ll hear the results when her sophomore album, Wounded Rhymes, is released on March 1 via her own LL Recordings. (Download “Get Some” and non-album ballad “Paris Blue” in exchange for an e-mail address at her site.)”
