September 2013 yielded a number of notable new music releases. As a blogger, music journalist and critic, I found it incredibly difficult to make the time to listen to the over abundance of music provided. That said, I am so glad for there to be an over abundance as opposed to an under-abundance. While all of the albums I listened to left me with something special and a new jam to add to my playlists on my iPod, I chose five albums that stuck with me for various reasons. If you haven’t partaken of these, you should definitely check them out!

Love is one of the fundamental pieces of human existence, and therefore a lack of it causes certain people to act in terrible ways. One of these ways is stalking someone; following them around and watching their every move, hoping that they will feel the same way at some point. Here are ten songs that perfectly soundtrack any stalking adventure (not that I recommend engaging in the activity, since it's illegal, socially frowned upon and well, just weird).

Sometimes you have to suffer for your art. Whether it's dropping (or packing on) weight, sitting in a makeup chair for three hours a day, or getting new piercings, some actors and actresses are willing to do what it takes to convey a realistic character. Here are some of the Most Insane Movie Makeovers:
Rooney Mara in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Mara went the distance to present a faithful Lisabeth Sander. The actress had her hair dyed and cut into Sanders' bizarre fashion and bleached her eyebrows and lost weight. Most shocking, however, is Mara went ahead and got all the body pierci...

15 years ago today, there was Sports Night.

Breast implants are nothing new in Hollywood. Some stars willingly reveal that they've had them, either to boast, get attention, or just plain get the truth out there and avoid all the stories. Some stars get them and neither confirm or deny it despite the obvious differences. And other stars don't have them, yet constantly become the objects of speculation because of an outfit they wore that either made their bust look bigger or smaller.
To the untrained eye, when a star wears a low cut gown that's tight on the sides basic physics applies and things "get pushed together", giving the appea...

Here’s a simple task for you. Go out on the street and ask a random person what they like most about Zooey Deschanel? Their answer, if they know of whom you are asking about, will be something positive.
Zooey is your girl next door and, in my opinion, America’s sweetheart. Weird thing is, everyone sees her that way. Her demeanor is inviting and her quirky personality can strike up one heck of a conversation. But you see, there are quite a few actors in Hollywood that portray themselves as Zooey comes off. Maybe that’s it; they portray themselves whilst Zooey just is...Zooey.
I have taken...

Celebrities don’t exist without a reputation. It’s their bread and butter. But when they take that reputation in their own hands via social media, tweeting and updating fans on everything from morning routines to late-night parties, the volatile result can have PR agents wringing their hands and the rest of us clicking “share” in sheer disbelief.
If you really want to single-handedly attract all the wrong publicity, follow these inspiring examples.

The amount of excellent music releases this year has been staggering, and it’s been almost impossible to figure out what music to get and what to skip. So, here is a list of the twenty most essential records of the year so far:
“Run the Jewels” (El-P + Killer Mike) - “Run the Jewels”
Killer Mike and El-P unite after individually putting out two of the best hip-hop releases of last year. The results: one of the most focused, fun, and aggressive hip-hop albums of 2013.

'The 1975' Review: The Essential Pop Album Of 2013

I love romantic comedies. Anything written by Nora Ephrom or starring a pre-plastic surgery Meg Ryan I memorized, purchased, and re-watched annually. 'You've Got Mail,' 'While You Were Sleeping,' 'Sleepless in Seattle,' 'Truth About Cats and Dogs,' and 'The Proposal' are my top five to date. Unfortunately, while the 80s and 90s introduced realistic romantic comedies about middle-class couples humorously struggling to find each other; the post-90s simplified the plot into terrible cliches about the uber-perfect, uber-successful, uber-glamorous woman and her one-dimensional love interest (‘Ho...

Unlike the ‘Barney‘ and ‘Teletubby‘-inspired 90s, the 80s clearly fixated on scaring the crap out of its kids. All I remember is a series of films that freaked me out more than crimped hair and Reaganomics. The 80s cartoons proved that most Baby Boomer adults HATED their children and their children’s friends. Why else create such frightening psychedelic plots bordering on torture, BDSM, and solitude? This is definitely not the “I love you/You love me” Barney love-fest of the 'Power Rangers' generation. I think half of today’s post-Generation X bloggers use kid flick lists as public therapy ...
