We all know that soul-crushing feeling when a show you love gets canceled. But perhaps 30 Rock’s Dr. Spaceman can steer you in the right direction. So, your TV show ended… now what? Continue reading
We all know what it’s like to lose a beloved TV show. If you somehow don’t, you either don’t watch enough TV, or you should go out and purchase a lottery ticket because you are clearly very lucky.
For the rest of us, we know the pain of no longer seeing a show you once loved on your TV every week or of putting the series finale in the DVD player and knowing it’s the end. Continue reading
A long time ago, we used to be friends. Seven years ago if you’re a Veronica Mars fan. But some friendships have a kind of magic that allows you to pick back up as though nothing has changed even if you haven’t seen each other for several years. I’m happy to say that Veronica Mars is one of those friends.
The March 14 release of the cult-show’s crowd-sourced movie brought back everything you’d expect from creator Rob Thomas. Continue reading
If you’re a Veronica Mars fan, or just generally familiar with the show, then you’ve likely already heard about the Veronica Mars Movie Project that went live on Kickstarter March 12 and was fully funded in only 11 hours. The project actually shattered several Kickstarter records, proving what a dedicated fan base the show had.
Just 8 months ago, the Veronica Mars movie made headlines by breaking all kinds of records for Kickstarter fundraising. Only 8 months, and we already have footage coming out for a movie. A movie that’s based on a TV show that ended 6 years ago. It almost defies logic.
But if that’s not exciting enough, a new featurette released earlier this month combined with the footage from San Diego Comic Con in July gives Marshmellows a lot to look forward to. Continue reading
It’s a good year for the charming Kristen Bell and her fans. Thanks to the Kickstarter campaign, the Veronica Mars movie is a fact – they’ve just finished shooting. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until 2014 to enjoy Bell on the big screen because this summer the coming of age Indie film The Lifeguard will be released. Continue reading
When you think country music, you probably think cowboy hats, pick-up trucks, girls crying, boys fighting, and people drinking alcohol all the time. In some cases, you would be correct in your way of thinking, but country music is not limited to that stereotype with a variety of sounds and artists emerging in recent years to suit just about anyone’s taste.
It’s the artists themselves that make country music so appealing to me. I biggest reason I was looking forward to watching the 2013 CMT Awards was because I love almost every single artist that is presenting or performing. I am a country princess through and through…even though I live in the city. The performances I was most looking forward to seeing were: Hunter Hayes, Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, and Carrie Underwood.
Jason Aldean, country music star, and Kristen Bell, famous actress, hosted the 12th annual celebration that took place in Nashville, Tennessee. I am dying to visit the capital of country music and hope one day I can! Kristen hosted the show last year as, but this was Jason’s first time hosting an award show.
Lenny Kravitz opened up the show with his song, “American Woman.” One of the hosts, Jason Aldean joined him as well. Every time I hear this song, I wonder where Taylor Swift is since it’s the song that plays right before she goes on stage for her RED tour. This song definitely got the crowd going.
Kristen told Jason that he has to “rip” on the country music stars, but both seemed to have a hard time with it. Jason wound up telling Taylor Swift that country will always be her home and they are proud of her (I was shocked to say the least and very happy that he gave her a compliment) and Kristen tried to make fun of Carrie Underwood, but couldn’t do it.
Kellie Pickler and Scotty McCreery, American Idol alums were the first presenters for the Breakthrough Video of the Year award. The winner was Florida Georgia Line for their song, “Cruise”. I am obsessed with this song, so I was very happy that they won. Anyone who is friends with my girl Taylor is great in my book. Plus they are mighty fine looking, in my opinion.
Anna Sophia Robb, actress from The Carrie Diaries, and Brantley Gilbert, country bad boy, introduce the next performer: Miranda Lambert. She performed her new song, “Mama’s Broken Heart.” I love Miranda’s bad ass attitude. Plus her pink microphone is awesome. She is a fantastic singer and Blake Shelton is one lucky man to be married to her.
The Avett Brothers introduced the newest artist to country music, Kasey Musgraves. She performed her new song, “Blowin’ Smoke.” She is a huge success so far. Almost everyone I know on Twitter is obsessed with her. I am not a fan, but I wish her all the best.
Dog Chapman, the Bounty Hunter, and his wife Beth were the next presenters for the Performance of the Year award. The winner was Miranda Lambert for her song, “Over You.” This is a very emotional song that she wrote with her husband Blake Shelton. It’s about his brother that passed away a few years ago.
Florida Georgia Line then told the audience that show was being broadcast to all the military and armed forces deployed overseas and introduced the next performer: Darius Rucker. He performed his song, “Wagon Wheel.” Lady Antebellum joined him on stage as well. The entire audience was cheering and singing along.
Jason Aldean introduced the next performer, Hunter Hayes. His performance was outside of the Bridgestone Arena. He sang his song, “I Want Crazy.” Oh my goodness. I am a huge Hayniac. Hunter is just so adorable and I am completely obsessed with this song. It reminds me of the relationship I have with my boyfriend. I listen to it at least once or twice a day. I need to see this kid in concert! Girls in the audience were wearing heart shaped sunglasses with “Crazy” written on them. I want a pair now.
Hunter sent it over to Luke Bryan, who was playing across the street at a place called The Stage. He sang his song, “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye.” He is a very talented singer and his voice gives me shivers. He then sent it back to the Arena for the next performance. My girl Taylor!
Taylor performed her new single, “Red.” Her dress was red and black. Her guitar was red. Her microphone was red. Can you tell she loves the color red almost as much as I do? I am so biased, but this was the best performance of the night. She had her band with her and back up dancers as well. The lights on stage changed colors when she mentioned blue, grey, and red. Taylor and her guitarist Paul Sidoti gave fantastic guitar solos as well.
Larry the Cable Guy was out next. He told Carrie Underwood to stop calling him because they are both married to other people now. Carrie’s husband Mike was about to go onto the stage and beat him up jokingly. I was cracking up. Larry presented the award for Collaborative Video of the Year. The winner was Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Eric Church for their song, “The Only Way I Know.”
The Band Perry introduced the next performer: Keith Urban. He sang his new song, “A Little Bit of Everything.” His guitar skills are amazing. Plus I am a sucker for his Australian accent. He and his wife Nicole Kidman are cute together.
The Nationwide On Your Side Award for Best New Act winner was Hunter Hayes. He definitely deserved this because he is a wonderful singer. He is so adorable and humble. Plus he is friends with my girl Taylor. You know that means a lot in my book.
Jana Kramer and Charles Easton, stars of the hit TV shoe Nashville presented the award for Duo Video of the Year. The winner was Florida Georgia Line. In their acceptance speech, they mentioned my girl Taylor. “Two in a row. We are going to turn into Taylor Swift now.” So awesome!
Lisa Marie Presley and Ed Sheeran introduced the next performers: Lady Antebellum. They performed their song, “Goodbye Town.” Charles Kelley and Hilary Scott’s voices complement each other so well. For having a baby on the way, Hilary can still rock like the best of ‘em.
Lenny Kravitz presented the award for Female Video of the Year. The winner was Miranda Lambert for her song, “Mama’s Broken Heart.” She gave Carrie a hug and Taylor Swift a high five on her way to the stage.
Keith Urban introduced the next performance from Little Big Town. They sang their song, “Break the Chain.” My girl Taylor was head banging along to the song. Towards the end of the song, Keith joined them on stage for a guitar solo.
Dax Shepard and The Bacon brothers presented the award for Group Video of the Year. The winner was Lady Antebellum for their song, “Downtown.” Then Kristen introduced Jason for his performance of “Night Train.”
Miranda Lambert presented the award for Male Video of the Year. The winner was Blake Shelton for his song, “Sure Be Cool If You Did.” How cute that Miranda was able to give the award to her own husband? Sadly, he wasn’t able to be at the show, so she accepted on his behalf.
Rascal Flatts introduced the next performer, Carrie Underwood. She dedicated her song, “See You Again” to the tornado victims of Oklahoma. It was a very emotional performance.
Sheryl Crow and Kenny Rogers presented the award for Video of the Year. The winner was Carrie Underwood for “Blown Away.” I was a tiny bit disappointed that Taylor didn’t win.
Florida Georgia Line and Nelly closed out the show with their remix of “Cruise.” What a great song to close out the show with!
The 2013 CMT Awards were awesome like they are every single year. I love country music and I hope the readers do as well.
There is very little more frustrating to a dedicated fan than a show that gets cancelled too soon. This was the fate of the CW’s Veronica Mars. The show, which featured a witty teenage detective (Kristen Bell) solving mysteries big and small, was forced to end abruptly after two and a half seasons. Fans were left feeling frustrated with the loose ends and lack of closure. Continue reading
