Okay, Grammy really liked the video I posted of Jayk and David from Varsity Fanclub dancing, so I decided to post up some more of them. So Grammy, this is for you.
Here's also this foreign singer named Jesse D'Lane. He's performing "Me and You"

Yeah, I know thousands of people blogged about it before me, but it took me a while to decide whether or not to comment on this. Now I will.
Okay, I've gotten either two reactions to the movie version of Twilight: it was terrible, or it was just slightly disappointing. I think too many people had way too high expectations for Hollywood doing this. Honestly, remember Harry Potter? That was great until it hit the silver screen. It's a good movie series, but nothing can really compare to the text originals. So when Shelby and I went to see the midnight show for Twilight last Thursday, I expected it to suck, like a good movie-goer. Left the theatre not only pleased, but surprised. People, if you walk into a movie expecting it to bomb, there's a good chance you'll be pleasantly surprised. Unless you saw Babylon A.D. or Max Payne. Cut the movie and cast some slack, they're just human.
It was funny, way funnier than the book. And, I'll admit, at first I was disappointed in the casting, but once you actually go watch them in action, they did great. It doesn't matter how the actors look, what matters is if you can see the characters in their words and their actions. Ladies, no man on earth could ever compare to the Edward in our minds, but Robert Pattinson filled the spot well. And Edward (as did all of the other characters) looks different in everyone's minds. My Edward might have shorter hair than yours, or better teeth. Robert rocked it, as did the rest of the cast.
I only had one problem with one part, and I wish the Cullens were in it more. I was surprised that Jacob was in it as much as he was. I thought he might show up once and not show up until New Moon, but I don't mind. All I'm saying is, it's a good movie, a great one. People just expected too much out of it. Not every movie follows the book it's based on, and just because Twilight is an amazing book series doesn't mean it's movie counterpart has more right to follow the book than Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or any other series. I definitely want to see it again, and I'm going to buy it when it comes out. And, although my heart will have problems during it, I will go see the second movie.

When I saw their video for "Future Love," two thoughts popped into my head: "Wow, these boys are pretty cute," and "This is the kind of pop I grew up with." It took me a few tries to get used to them, but I liked them right away. You have to wath their vid and see for yourself, but these guys definetly have an energy about them and are worth checking out. Plus, check out some of their sick moves. I just about died from the awesomeness when I saw this.

Hot, unattainable guys are haunting me! Especially talented ones. Top of the Charts for now, Ben Barnes. Yes, I am talking about Prince Capsian. He's hot, he's funny, he's tall, already he sounds like a winner. But get this: this guy can sing. He was in a pop group called Hyrise for about 4 minutes, in his words, and here's a video of them performing their song "Leading Me On." He was the second singer, btw. Honestly, what is up with me and pop groups lately? Well, the lead singer of Framing Hanley is hot too, but he made "Lollipop" a real rock song, so he deserves some praise for that.
