Hark The Herald Pentatonix Sings

I caught the PTX gang at an exclusive intimate show at The Roxy in Los Angeles, CA last night where they closed with their rendition of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" off of their just dropped Christmas CD. 

They mixed the song up with an old fashioned revival style gospel arrangement that is da bomb!

Even though Halloween hasn't happened yet, treat yourself to an early  present and get ready for the PTXmas holiday!

"Lolley" Bop

Electronic music's best-kept secret, Sophia Lolley, set the international dance floor ablaze two years ago with the release of "Da Bop”, her English language interpretation of WTF!’s  cover of Irena Santor's 1968 novelty hit "Piosenka O Sąsiedzie". EDM fans from all around the world began clamoring for more from the spirited British singer and this month, the wait is finally over!  Sophia Lolley's self-titled EP, featuring “Da Bop” 

Sophia describes her sound as theatrical disco pop, however the album is sprinkled with colorful music of varying styles including an undeniable cabaret influence born out of her love for 1940's artists like Doris Day and Glenn Miller
 She admits to having multiple personalities, running the gamut from serious to loving, reserved to gregarious, feral to gracious, and fun loving to drama queen.  "I’m a falconer. I go fly-fishing. It took me nine times to pass my driving test. I hate vegetables. I have lots of animals including a pet magpie, sparrow hawks, tortoises, hens, cattle and the occasional badger. I also smoke big cigars." 
All of her personas are reflected in the EP that was born from a series of collaborations over the last five years between Peace Bisquit and Count De Money, the production team that produced and mixed "Da Bop”. 
The EP begins with "Live That Day”, a song Sophia wrote as a tribute to her grandmother who died four years ago. "Grandmama was a huge inspiration to me,” she says. “Her motto was ‘everything will always be ok' and she was right. The song is about looking on the bright side of life because it is there."Sophia’s magical musings are also captured in “Everybody Loves It”, a song that encourages all to appreciate the lovely gloriousness of life. 
“The idea for the EP was to create a collection of Sophia Lolley songs that fans could dance to at a bar or pop on during a cocktail party or at fashion runway show,” says Bill  Coleman of Peace Biscuit. 
Sophia Lolley is thrilled the EP and future projects will take her out of England.  Though she loves her hometown of rural Devon – she calls it the best county in Britain – there are no musical influences or excitement there.  She’s anxious to come to the states, particularly Texas.  “I’ve always wanted to go to Texas to see if there are still cowboys," she says.

They're All Going To Laugh At You, Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne: Have A Bloody Good Halloween!
Happy Monday and only 11 more days until Halloween! Yes!

I thought I would kick off the week with one of my favorite celebrity Halloween costumes, worn by one of my favorite celebrities.

Let's celebrate the season with one of the coolest people on the planet, Ms. Kelly Osbourne paying homage to one of my favorite movies with actors in their mid to late twenties  playing teenagers, Carrie.

That's right KO is dressed for the prom as the one and only Carrie White, with the must have accessory of the season, pig blood doused all over her beautiful dress.

Only she could have come up with such a great costume, and pull it off.

I love Kelly she is a tough woman with a mouth like a trucker and a heart of gold. Currently on Fashion Police, Kelly has come a long way since her The Osbournes days.

Kudos Kelly! Have a great week everyone!

Laugh With Kelly, Not At Kelly:

"Kiss Me, Kill Me"

"While confronting his unfaithful boyfriend Dusty blacks-out. When he comes to, his boyfriend was murdered and he's the prime suspect."

If the title didn't get your attention I knew the above tidbit would. Sounds intriguing! Want to know more about this movie and how you can be a part of it? Read on, if you dare...

"Kiss Me, Kill Me” stars Van Hansis (“As the World Turns,” “Eastsiders”) and Gale Harold, who is playing a gay character for the first time since his legendary role as Brian Kinney on Showtime’s groundbreaking “Queer as Folk.”
Gay Again, Gale Harold

Directed by Casper Andreas (“Going Down In LA-LA Land,” “The Big Gay
Musical,”), from a screenplay by David Michael Barrett (“Such Good People,”
“Bad Actress”), picture boasts some powerhouse indie talent: Willam Belli
(“RuPaul’s Drag Race”), Kit Williamson (“Eastsiders,” “Mad Men”), Independent
Spirit nominee, Yolonda Ross (“Treme”), Tom Lenk (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”),
Brianna Brown (“Devious Maids”), Jonathan Lisecki (“Gayby”), Michael Maize
(“True Blood”), Craig Robert Young (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), Jackie Monahan
(“Foxy Merkins,” “Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same”), as well as
Matthew Ludwinski and Allison Lane (“Going Down in LALA Land”).

It's Van Hansis
“I’m beyond thrilled about the fantastic cast we have assembled,” says director
Andreas. “That we managed to attach such great talent is a testament to David’s
sensational screenplay." He adds, "I can’t wait to get started on the production
and get to work with these wonderful actors, including my two “Going Down in
LA-LA Land” stars, Matthew and Allison.”

“Casper is a world-class filmmaker,” says screenwriter Barrett, “It’s going to be a
really fun ride seeing him, and this spectacular group of talent, bring my script to life.”

“Kiss Me, Kill Me” is a contemporary Alfred Hitchcock/Agatha Christie-style “whodone-it,” with the mystery centered on Dusty who confronts his unfaithful
boyfriend and blacks-out, only to wake up to find the boyfriend murdered and
he’s the prime suspect.

Director Andreas and screenwriter Barrett are producing. Their 30-day campaign
is looking for $100,000 and offering perks that range from digital downloads, to
being an extra, a speaking part, and different producing levels.
