Things I Like


Game-Of-Thrones-2014

I search through my On-Demand listings and all my Netflix recommendations…and the rivers are running kind of dry these days. There’s no new Scandal eps, no Nashvilles, no Curbs, Breaking Bads, or and no, The Blacklist ain’t it. At least I have Good Wife to look forward to, and Justified is back. And…now the anticipation is building for the fourth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones!

The bad news is…that horrid lil’ sh-t King Joffery is still not dead. But meanwhile, almost every other Stark in the Seven Kingdoms is. Ugh.

The good news is…judging from this first trailer for the new season of Thrones, there will be more Red Priestess, more Khaleesi spilling blood and taking names, more icky incest, more wildings, and many confusing plotlines.

Bring it. April 6th, 2014.

ryan-lewis-macklemore

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ incredible year continued on Sunday night with two wins at the 2013 American Music Awards in Los Angeles. Currently on tour, the rap duo took time before hitting the stage at Miami’s American Airlines Arena to accept their award for “Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album.” During his acceptance speech, Macklemore quoted the great Martin Luther King Jr. and spoke on racial profiling, inequality, and the fight against racism. The duo later returned to perform “Can’t Hold Us,” via satellite.

“And due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award, I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it.”

homeland-season-3-showtime

Here we go again! Homeland Season 3 kicks off on Showtime starting on Sept 29th (well, hopefully. My CBS and Showtime has been dead for 2 weeks.). And I can’t wait to cringe every time looney CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) self-destructs in her never-ending obsessive love affair with psychotic terrorist Nicolas Brody (Damien Lewis).
Judging from the new 3-minute trailer for this season, Homeland will bring new meltdowns from Carrie, Brody getting shot in a foreign country, congressional interrogations for Saul Berenson, and… oh great, the most despicable child character this side of Game of Thrones, Brody’s daughter Dana will start taking naked selfies and fetishizing her dad’s Islamic religion.

Bring on the tension!

nick-catchdubs-iamsu-bizness

Fool’s Gold co-founder and prolific partyrocker Nick Catchdubs is one of our favorite folks…such a nice guy! So we’re obviously pumped that he and the Fools Gold family (Atrak and all) have put out Nick’s new single “Bizness” featuring Iamsu and Jay Ant from the Bay Area… along with a creative and kooky music video befitting the FG stamp of bizarro approval.

Watch the video, directed by Scott Jacobson and produced by the comedy web network JASH, featuring next-level lipsynching from the last types you’d think could spit Iamsu and Jay Ant’s bars….

jay-z-picasso-baby-1

Jay-Z continues to push boundaries in support of his newly released Magna Carta Holy Grail album. The rapper-mogul has descended upon New York City’s Pace Gallery on Wednesday afternoon for a six-hour performance of “Picasso Baby” off his new solo LP. Serving as a life art piece performance, the moment draws inspiration from artist Marina Abramovic’s 2010 MoMA exhibition Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present. Footage captured from the event will be used for an official music video, presumably directed by Mark Romanek (“99 Problems”) who co-ordinated the event along with Salon 94. Wale, Marina Abramovic, Judd Apatow, Jerry Saltz, George Condo, and other well-known figures in the art world are all in attendance.

According to early reports, Jay-Z’s new album is set to debut No. 1 on Billboard’s charts next week selling an estimated 475-525k copies its first week in retail stores. Jay has already received a platinum plaque for the 1 million copies it sold via the “Magna Carta” app for Samsung devices during its initial July 4 release.

Check out photos and video on set of “Picasso Baby” below….
