*SLEEPYHEAD, CLOSE YOUR EYES... MOTHER'S RIGHT HERE BESIDE YOU...



Horror films certainly ain't what they used to be... Even those that are being considered the "good ones" nowadays like IT FOLLOWS and THE BABADOOK end up being utterly disappointing and undeserving of all the online hype...

But one can still hope, I s'pose... Check out the spooky trailer for GOODNIGHT MOMMY, a new Austrian film creeping into theaters this September that just might actually deliver... And with that last sentence, I will probably be eating my words in a couple of months...

*YOU CHARGE ME UP LIKE ELECTRICITY, JUMP-START MY HEART WITH YOUR LOVE...



Even though I feel like this next video falls somewhat short of equalling the brilliance of the song, I still wanted to post the latest visual offering from MAJOR LAZER for their single "Powerful" featuring ELLIE GOULDING and TARRUS RILEY...

Look I get it, we all want to have super powers, but mutants are soooooo played out... Nevertheless, I still feel like this is the best track off their 2015 album PEACE IS THE MISSION...

*BECAUSE FROM THE MOMENT WE MET, IT WAS OUT OF OUR HANDS...



Two months back I was enthusiastically rallying the troop(s) for the new album by ACTIVE CHILD and surprise surprise, here I am once again trying to spread the word about one of my favorite Electro records of the year, MERCY...

If the single "Never Far Away" hasn't already broken down that jaded heart of yours, then perhaps the gorgeous opening track "1999" might seal the deal... Here's the officially adorable video...

*I'MMA BLOW YOUR MIND - TAKE IT OUT ON THE FLOOR LIKE THAT, LIKE THAT...



Since releasing her most excellent mixtape AMETHYST back in March, I've become a huge admirer of TINASHE (pronounced Ti-Nah-Shay), a stunning 22 year-old RnB singer/dancer from Kentucky who is currently in world-domination mode touring alongside NICKI MINAJ...

If you haven't already, check out her jaw-dropping video for the single "All Hands On Deck", which actually appears on TINASHE's 2014 debut album AQUARIUS, another definite must own release for all fans of sexy soul jamz... Whoa mama, this girl is on fire...

*TURN UP TO RIHANNA WHILE THE WHOLE CLUB FUCKIN' WASTED...



Not much of an introduction needed for this next video... I love RIHANNA... I love her music and I also love it when RIHANNA gets naked... So this is a win-win situation...

The song "Bitch Betta Have My Money" is expected to appear on her upcoming album R8, which has yet to receive a release date... Enjoy!!!

*THE GREATEST THING, YOU'LL EVER LEARN - IS JUST TO LOVE AND BE LOVED IN RETURN...



GASPAR NOÉ is one of the most original filmmakers working these days and his resumé so far has been pretty impressive, while often a bit challenging... Next up though for the controversial Argentinian-born director is LOVE, a sex-infused tale involving three characters that will teeter on the boundaries between arthouse cinema and straight-up porno... And oh yeah, it was shot in 3D...

Here's the official teaser trailer that is definitely NSFW unless you work at a sex ranch or dildo vendor...

*WE COULD CRUISE TO THE BLUES - WILSHIRE BOULEVARD IF WE CHOOSE...



In June of 2014, LANA DEY REY released her critically-acclaimed second album ULTRAVIOLENCE and as far as I'm concerned, it was also one of my favorite records of the year.. Therefore, I was quite pleased when earlier this week the title track from her upcoming album HONEYMOON premiered online to give us a taste of what's coming... So far, sooooooo good...

All the haters out there can go lick a bum's dirty ass, because if you can't appreciate the talents of LANA DEL REY and her dreamy torch-singer stylings, then face it you are petty and you've got bad taste...

*PUT ME ON A PEDESTAL AND I'LL ONLY DISAPPOINT YOU...



Just last month Aussie lady rocker COURTNEY BARNETT appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JIMMY FALLON and played her song "Pedestrian At Best", which absolutely rocked the fucking joint... But seeing how NBC are total bitches with their content, I'm going to have to share a different performance of said song because if you haven't heard her yet, you really need to...

This track appears on COURTNEY's kickass 2015 album SOMETIMES I SIT AND THINK, AND SOMETIMES I JUST SIT... Cop that shit!!!

*I AIN'T AFRAID TO DIE ANYMORE - I DONE IT ALREADY...



Less than six months ago, ALEJANDRO G. IÑÁRRITU was graciously accepting the Oscar for Best Director for his 2014 comedy masterpiece BIRDMAN, which he most certainly deserved... Next up for this brilliant filmmaker is THE REVENANT, an intense revenge-driven thriller starring LEONARDO DiCAPRIO and TOM HARDY which was apparently inspired by true life events...

Check out the first official trailer that premiered a couple days back and get stoked for what looks to be one of the most ambitious and highly-anticipated films of the year... I can't wait!!!

*LEGS MOVIN' SIDE TO SIDE - SMACK IT IN THE AIR!!!



I know it's been a few days since her impressive victory last Saturday (7/11), but I still wanted to say congratulations to SERENA WILLIAMS for winning her sixth WIMBLEDON title and 21st Grand Slam title overall...

At 33 years-old, SERENA continues to prove why she is unarguably considered the greatest female tennis player to ever play the game and it's still going to be quite some time until she lets go of that #1 ranking... You go girl!!!

*I WANT TO BUILD A MACHINE THAT NOBODY ELSE HAS THE BALLS TO BUILD...



I've been completely hooked on HALT AND CATCH FIRE this Summer, which is currently half-way through airing it's second season and in my opinion, one of the best programs around right now...

This entertaining AMC drama takes place in Texas during the mid 1980's and focuses on the talented minds behind the dawning of personal home computers and online gaming... The entire cast is totally awesome and the show's soundtrack is all synthy and punky, including the theme song by PAUL HASLINGER... For those unawares, HASLINGER is a pretty busy composer these days who also did a six year stint with TANGERINE DREAM from 1985-1991...

Check out the opening credits above and give this show a chance if you're looking for something new to nerd out on...

*TELL ME IF YOU FEEL THIS PAIN - 'CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO BE YOUR BALL & CHAIN...



In addition to several other female Electro-Pop stars currently dominating the world, UK songstress ELLIE GOULDING has grown on me quite a bit, which is primarily due to the fact that she masterfully covered ACTIVE CHILD's song "Hanging On" a few years back...

Seeing how this was my 12th post for the month of May, thereby surpassing my collected blogging output of the previous four months, I thought I would treat ya'll to one more lovely ditty... Enjoy!!!

*YOU'RE ALWAYS ON MY MIND - IT'S LIKE I'M WITH YOU ALL THE TIME...



It's been a few years since my last ACTIVE CHILD post, but recently Pat Grossi has been previewing some new tracks from his upcoming album MERCY, which comes out June 16th... For those unawares, Grossi was a former choirboy and ultra-talented harpist out in Los Angeles before wisely dedicating his life to angelically crooning over luscious electronic beats...

Above you can check out the song "Never Far Away" to get a taste of what's to come and down below I've included a delightful live performance from 2011 of the song "She Was a Vision"...
 

*WHAT I FEEL WON'T GO AWAY - SO YOU BETTER BE HERE TO STAY...



Earlier today, the talented RnB duo LION BABE released another new video to support their awesome self-titled EP and this time around it's for the song "Don't Break My Heart"...

These sexy far-out visuals you're about to see suggest that some women in the future will be metallic, bootyful and eager to dance for our pleasure... So pretty much like how they are now, minus the silver body paint...

*GREENDALE HAS WARPED ME LIKE A BARBIE IN A MICROWAVE...


Now that MAD MEN is officially over and COMMUNITY has been banished to YahooTV or some shit (where no one will ever see it), I am actually experiencing the dreaded effects of ALISON BRIE withdrawals...

Luckily I recently discovered ALISON appearing in this super sexy shoot for GQ MEXICO and let me tell ya, "Ella es muy caliente!!!"
