Take one guess what a TV character played by Lisa Loeb wears. Glasses, of course, not unlike the bookish specs that defined her look in the music video for her 1994 hit “Stay (I Missed You)”, or the many models in her line of Lisa Loeb Eyewear. But because the singer’s new character is part […]

Taylor Swift Strips Down Crazy-Ex Persona With Acoustic 'Blank Space' Performance
Huffington Post - about 2 years
When your brain gets a bad case of Internet fatigue, it's sometimes nice to revisit classic, guitar-strummy tunes of a simpler time; a time when Lisa Loeb and Alanis Morissette dominated the airwaves, and airwaves were still a relevant mode of transmitting music. At a small performance at the LA Grammy Museum's Clive Davis Theater last September, contemporary pop icon Taylor Swift channeled a real '90s singer-songwriter vibe with an acoustic version of her hit song "Blank Space." All these months later, it is finally available for consumption thanks to a newly released YouTube video. Swift prefaced her performance with an explanation of how it was inspired by false portrayals of her in the media as crazily boy-obsessed.  "My first reaction was like, 'Man, that's a bummer. This isn't fun for me,'" she said of the coverage. "But my second reaction was like, 'Hey, that's actually a really interesting character.' So, I was like, 'I can use this!'" For further viewin...

Lost Soul</em>: Reintroducing Bob Hillman, Chats with Peter Case, Maia Sharp and Ben Caplan, Plus Alphanaut, Sit Kitty Sit and Butchers Blind's Exclusives
Huffington Post - over 2 years
ALPHANAUT'S "UNNECESSARY SOLDIER" According to Mark Alan, aka Alphanaut... "The term 'Unnecessary Soldier' comes from Thomas Jefferson's vision for keeping military costs controlled in the US by reducing the number of soldiers employed in times of peace. This idea stuck in my head for years, especially in our current age where we've done the complete opposite of what he hoped for. "With this title I wanted to create an anti-war piece, but really struggled with an approach. I felt there are so may classic protest songs out there and I didn't want to duplicate a message that had already been delivered. Plus I had already written my own anti-war song 'More Than I Do' several years earlier. "In the end, I decided to write a lyric that was told from soldier to soldier, human to human, each with an agreement to throw down arms and ignore the machines of conflict that sent them each out to the field. When composing the piece I really wanted to have it reflect the sounds of ...

'The Voice' Recap Season 5, Episode 11: The Knockout Rounds, Part 1, Are Full Of Tough Choices
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 5, Episode 11 of NBC's "The Voice" titled "Knockout Rounds, Part 1" Knockouts! Where the Battle rounds are all about showing up a duet partner; in the Knockouts, a singer can only sink themselves. A new twist this season lets coaches steal losers of the Knockout rounds. The "steals" mean us viewers won't have to say goodbye to some of our favorite singers. But as the squads whittle down, Blake, Christina, Cee-Lo and Adam all say they aren't looking to replicate any archetypes they already have. It's looking more like "Lord Of The Flies" with every passing episode. For my fellow sob-story skeptics, this week's episode is refreshingly light on twinkly piano music, tributes to dead relatives and tales of personal tragedy! #sticktothetunes. Here's how it all goes down: Team Christina: The first battle of the night is hype, hype, hype. Two of Team Christina's toughest singers are ready to strut their stuff. Amber Nicole sings "...

He's Been Working On The Same Movie For The Past 11 Years
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Ethan Hawke is, for a lack of a better term, a straight shooter. He's not the type of actor who, when discussing the new film he's promoting, makes it sound like something it's not. In our recent interview, Hawke, now 42, described the Warner Bros. thriller "Getaway" as a "popcorn movie." As someone who does interviews for a living, I like interviewing Ethan Hawke. Hawke, if you've been paying attention, is having a nice year. In fact, between the critically acclaimed "Before Midnight" (below, Hawke theorizes about where the franchise can go from here) and the financial success of "The Purge" (a film that cost $3 million to produce and earned $83 million worldwide), it might be Hawke's best year yet. He hopes to continue that momentum with "Getaway." The film stars Hawke a former race car driver who is blackmailed into performing a series of vehicular infractions across the city of Sofia, Bulgaria. (Selena Gomez and Jon Voight co-star in "Getaway," which features one of th...

Amanda Callaghan: Betsey Johnson Is More Down To Earth Than She Looks
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Since I could first pick up a handbag, Betsey Johnson has been my favorite fashion designer. She evokes the perfect combination of girly and rebel, two things that every woman has somewhere inside them. She is a fashion icon and legend, having started in a small NYC boutique and continuously built her empire into the household name it is today. I was saddened when I heard about her company filing for Chapter 11, but was hopeful that her brand would rise again with the help of Steve Madden's company. I was home watching Style Network one evening, scouring for ideas for a new blog post, and a commercial came on for a new show... XOX Betsey Johnson. Finally I could get my much-needed dosage of Betsey and a look into the eccentric's glamorous life! I imagined her doing cartwheels in her penthouse apartment that was adorned with pink frill and confetti. I imagined lots of champagne, vacationing and hangouts with Lisa Loeb. However, since the show first aired I have watched re...
