Sights and Sounds #22

My girl Naya Rivera, who I love on Glee, got a record deal. Good for her.

Beyonce’s next single is “Best I Never Had.” I’m sort of eh on it.

Even better from Beyonce is the amazing video that Jay-Z took backstage at the American Idol finale. This was a rehearsal! Insane.

Monster Giuseppe Heel – That’s The Monster Shoe

by Jamie Sanford on January 7, 2011

So, like many others, I’m really enjoying the new Kanye West album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

My favorite track is “Monster” which features Bon Iver, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and one of my new favorite ladies, Nicki Minaj.  It is Nicki who sings about the “monster shoe,” at about 4:03 in the video.

(Please note that this song has language that might be offensive and is NSFW – and the images, especially those of Nicki that are shown as the song is playing, can also be construed as NSFW.)

So let’s talk about the Giuseppe heels, shall we?  All available from Zappos.com, which has a great collection of heels by GZ and many other fabulous designers.

I need to find more songs that reference designers so I can turn those lyrics into blog posts!

2010 Recap – Music, Movies, TV

by Jamie Sanford on December 31, 2010

The 2010 recap posts continue!  This one is video-heavy, I suggest visiting the original post for ease in watching the videos if you’re reading the feed.

Music
Kanye West – no one is denying how great his new album is. My favorite song from the album is “Monster” and here’s an unedited version of the video. NSFW!

Civil Twilight – a recent discovery, here’s the video for “Letters From The Sky” which I really like.

How To Destroy Angels – Trent Reznor’s new band with his wife Mariqueen Reznor and previous collaborator Atticus Ross. This is the video for “The Space In Between,” which is really fantastic.

Lady Gaga – she killed it all year. I love her because I dig the music, I love how she is running her own show the whole way. Here’s the “Telephone” video with Beyonce.

80s pop – I’m always in the mood for 80s pop. You know you want to watch the “Take On Me” video.

Nine Inch Nails – 2010 was the first year in a while that I didn’t attend at least one NIN show, since the big “Wave Goodbye” tour of 2009. NIN.com gave us this video from that last set of shows on Christmas. I can’t wait to see more.

Florence + The Machine is another 2010 discovery. Here’s the video for “Heavy in Your Arms” from the Eclipse soundtrack.

David Usher – who brought out a fantastic acoustic album this year. I’m still hoping to find my way up to Canada to see a show in 2011. Here’s a video of “Black Black Heart” from a recent live performance in Toronto.

Barcelona – I was introduced to this band with that video of the giant aquarium, and the song from that video is so good. Here is that video featuring “Please Don’t Go.”

Japanese Aquarium

Had a bit of an obsession with Cream more recently. Here’s an audio-only video of “White Room.”

Movies
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Big Lebowski, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 1, Whip It, Clerks 2, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Jaws. I watch random movies that are old and don’t go to the movie theatre very often.

Here’s one of the opening scenes from The Big Lebowski. Very NSFW!

Television
Vampire Diaries, Mythbusters, Dancing With The Stars, 30 Rock, Hoarders. Also had massive marathons of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Bones.

The Vampire Diaries - Is It Bad To Want All Three?

The Vampire Diaries - Is It Bad To Want All Three?

Hot, right?  This show is so good – and is currently one of the only things my husband and I sit together on the couch to watch together, faithfully.  They don’t mess around at all, people show up and kill people and die on a regular basis.  There are no throwaway episodes.  I want to watch less TV in 2011, but I won’t be giving up this show.

Next post coming soon.
