So I’m super psyched about seeing one of my all-time favourite books, The Great Gatsby (Fahrenheit 451 being my other), being turned in a big budget movie (unlike the Mia Farrow version). You know what would be totally amazing? If they chose Lana Del Rey’s National Anthem to be a part – any part – of the film. Everything about it oozes The Great Gatsby, especially the theme of Old Money and New Money.
If you haven’t seen the second trailer (or Del Rey’s song), check both of them out below!
So this is what I like to call a spectacular performance. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Angela Miller is going to be in the Top 3, if not the winner of this years American Idol, based on this performance alone. The only fear I have is she set the bar too high and all future performances aren’t going to be good enough, as the judges will constantly compare it to this performance.

Other than the ridiculously long title, here’s another free track to download, courtesy of Starbucks and iTunes. The artists are Ben Harper and Charlie Musslewhite, while the track is titled You Found Another Love (I Lost Another Friend). Please comment on which code you’ve used, since they can only be redeemed once. Enjoy!
Since my Facebook and Twitter newsfeed is bombarded with all things Super Bowl related, I thought it would be fitting to post something as well. Here is a mashup of artists singing the Star Spangled Banner at various Super Bowls. Enjoy.
For those who are (unfortunately) fans of anything to do with the Kardashians, you must watch this. It is a deleted scene from This Is 40 and features Maude Apatow (the offspring of the absolutely hilarious Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow) doing what is probably the best impersonations of all three Kardashian sisters. When my sister first showed me this, it left me in tears – that’s how funny it is. It’s eerie at how much Maude actually sounds like them…not that I would know from watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Check it out below – hilarity ensues!
