Top Ten Reasons Outside Lands Music Festival Was Magical

Paul McCartney
Last weekend the beautiful (yet cold and windy) city of San Francisco hosted the 6th annual Outside Lands music festival with headliners Sir Paul McCartney, Nine Inch Nails and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Here are the top ten reasons why the festival was magical:

1.) Sir Paul McCartney...period.

2.) The Red Hot Chili Peppers proved that they can still rock the house- 'Oldies but Goodies' in our book. 

3.) Despite the hundreds of Port-a-Potties, hundreds of people still felt the need to pee out in the open directly behind the port-a-potties. A very hysterical sight.

4.) Lamb Fries at the Outs...

Glee 305
It seems like ‘Glee’ has just decided to pretend last week’s West Side Virgin Story never happened. Thank goodness! What a relief it is to jump right back into election season and age-inappropriate relationships! Puck leads the boys in a sexually charged performance of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” within the first five minutes of the episode and it's clear that we can put 'The First Time' behind us and have some fun this week.

The good news gets even better when Ms. Corcoran , who has nice scenes with just about every single character in this show, speaks to Mr. Schue about keeping their...

Christmas music video
Back when MTV played music videos (remember those?), this time of year was reserved for playing the best… and worst Christmas classics that pop culture had to offer. Even though the days of Christmas tunes playing on TV until 3 am are over, the art of the Christmas music video has never gone away. To celebrate, Starpulse has put together a small collection of yuletide joy to celebrate the season. Eat that MTV.

(500) Days of Summer was one of the best movies of the year. The Golden Globe nominated film will be released on DVD on December 22nd

, and for those who haven't seen it - we recommend you check it out.

We especially love the musical scene where Joseph Gordon-Levitt charms the audience with his dance moves to Hall & Oates "You Make My Dreams Come True." His character, Tom, falls head over heels in love with Zooey Deschanel's character, Summer, and what better way to express his love than in song? When he thinks about her he wants to sing and dance and everyone else is as happy as he is...

Chris Marsol Releases New Album, 'Butterflys, Lipstick, and Hand Grenades'

Chris Marsol
Let's face it, they've got us all figured out. It's a formula no doubt. Multiply your age by your city and state, add your disposable income level then divide that by your ethnicity and they will surely be able to determine what kind of music you listen to and how to get you to buy it. And unfortunately, we as a society rarely disappoint. Yet we all know that Nirvana fan that used to sneak in her room when no one was privy and pop in that N' Sync album, all the while publicly detesting pop music. That was our first lesson in pop culture: things are rarely as simple as they seem. We l...
