Things to Know





Alright, I know this isn’t being posted on the Weekend like it was last time…and it’s no longer called Weekly Roundup. It’s simply Things to Know. The premise is still the same…a collection of links or my thoughts that I would like to share with you all. It might be posted every week…might not. Might be posted on time a week…might be posted more. Might be posted on the weekend…might be posted on a weekday. Basically, there’s no set time, so just keep checking the blog if you’re interested. This is also where other contest announcements will be posted most of the time.

Miley Cyrus and Pete Wentz (bassist of Fall Out Boy) have a video out about 7 things they hate…it’s just amusing. You can find that here: Click Click

Next, author John Green posted a four minute video discussing the first half of Catcher in the Rye. Another example of John Green’s exceptionally fast talking.

Pop/Rock band The Cab has a new video out for their song “I’ll Run” I love this song, so check it out here!

Comedian Bernie Mac passed away this past Saturday.


If you go over to Book Room Reviews, they posted an article where Stephenie Meyer talks about the criticism of Breaking Dawn.

Over at Afterelton.com, editor Michael Jensen and author Brent Hartinger have started a new vlog called The Wrap with Two Gay Guys. This is the newest episode titled Vampires are So Over. What do you think?


Below, you can watch a group of teens spoof the Twilight trailer. Honestly, I found this really hilarious and I think all the people acted very well. They obviously put a lot of thought into this, and the outcome was pretty awesome. Share your thoughts in the comments!



Singer Teddy Geiger can be seen in the new movie The Rocker, but more than that…he wants YOU to help choose the songs for his next album. He has 33 songs up to be listened too, rated, and even bought by you…the top picks will make his new album. To hear the songs just head on over here!

Finally, I wanted to talk about the song we have up on our Myspace profile. It’s by Crosby Loggins, son of Kenny Loggins and winner of Rock the Cradle. To listen just head on over to our Myspace page.

That’s it! Leave your thoughts on this idea in the comments…as well as what you think about the various links!

I haven't seen the real trailer, but the fake one was pretty darn good.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Lenore: You should see the real one, so you can compare the real things to the spoofs...but agreed, I believe they did an awesome job as well.
