A must have album for any fab playlist is definitely Nancy Sinatra's 'Boots', it's a ultra hip groove!
In the mid 1960s, with songs like “So Long Babe” and “How Does that Grab You, Darlin’?“, Nancy Sinatra took the image of a girl crying over her diary for a boy who wouldn’t behave and changed it to a woman who let her men know, in no uncertain terms, just how things were going to be.
“These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” kicked open the doors for a whole new category of women in music. Nancy’s tough girl attitude preceded women’s liberation and created the first rebel chick pop/rock singer. The era of the female rocker was born. Nancy cites among her influences, Ruth Brown, Laverne Baker, Doris Day, Peggy Lee, Elvis, Brigitte Bardot, and her Mother. One of Nancy’s continuing inspirations is Diane Keaton.
GREATEST AMERICAN HERO REBOOT GETS SECOND CHANCE AT FOX
Last year, The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord were behind an attempt to reboot Stephen J. Cannell’s classic comic book inspired series Greatest American Hero. Despite having a put pilot order from Fox, the new Greatest American Hero did not take flight.
However, Fox is reportedly giving Lord and Miller a second shot at Greatest American Hero with a pilot production commitment this go-around, but that doesn’t mean things aren’t changing. This time, writer and director Rick Famuyiwara has come up with his own take on Greatest American Hero, replacing Rodney Rothman on the project. The initial report indicates that Fox is already looking for an actor to fill out the garish red superhero costume that provides its user with powers.
And since we are on the subject of music, isn't it about time that someone covered 80s new wave hits mariachi style ... oh look someone has.
Mariachi Band Brings Morrissey To Dia De Los Muertos
In Los Angeles, one of this year's largest Day of the Dead celebrations was held at Hollywood Forever Cemetery where Rudolph Valentino, Jayne Mansfield and Dee Dee Ramone are buried. It featured plenty of the day's usual customs — folkloric dancers, face-painting and elaborate Huichol yarn paintings and beadwork. But this year's celebration also brought an unexpected addition: A mariachi band that plays covers of songs by The Smiths' lead singer, Morrissey.
El Mariachi Manchester is an L.A. band devoted to Moz. Morrissey made Los Angeles his home, and his music continues to enchant Angelenos — especially Mexican-Americans, according to Gloria Estrada, who plays guitarrón in the band.
Funny, she doesn't look Druish
The Dumbest Thing The Star Wars Expanded Universe Did To Princess Leia
Star Wars’ old Expanded Universe is no more. Under the Disney regime, it has been relegated to the “Legends” banner, and the new official canon includes just the movies and TV shows, along with a whole new set of books, comics, etc. But somehow, one of the absolute worst EU books still has an enduring influence on Star Wars canon.
The Courtship of Princess Leia may not have the most outlandish plot twists (I give that to The Corellian Trilogy) or the most absurd tech (the Sun Crusher is a thing that exists), but as a whole, I think it fails the most out of all the old Star Wars books. On every conceivable level. But this book’s terribleness has proved to be shockingly influential.
‘Star Trek Beyond′: Everything We Know (And Don’t Know)
As revealed by Simon Pegg, the third installment in the rebooted Star Trek series recently wrapped up principal filming. Like all big franchises these days, the movie is shrouded in as much secrecy as Paramount can manage, but as reported by CinemaBlend, there have still been multiple photos and video leaked that show extras and stars from the movie on outdoor sets. There have also been studio sanctioned “leaks” from stars like Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto, who have shared photos from the set in order to hype up fans for round three.
Not surprisingly, there are many facts and rumors about the film that are floating around the Internet. Here’s a look at some of what we know about Star Trek Beyond, which is due out in theaters next summer to mark the 50th anniversary of the original TV show’s debut in 1966.
