Before She Was Bella! Sha!




So last night I saw the movie, "The Messengers" on cable, and before and after every commercial they had to remind us viewers that the film starred Twilight's Kristin Stewart. As if we could forget, considering she was the female lead.

I'm just bringing this up because I hear so many people complaining that Kristin Stewart is not the right person to play Isabella Swan in the Twilight Saga films. So here, her role in "The Messengers," was definitely a better role for her. She plays a dysfunctional teen with an attitude problem, and gives off a lot of negative body language (in bed). Just kidding, she doesn't have a sex scene. Unless they edited it out on cable. Who knows (in bed)?
Now I'm killing it. I'm just trying to say that I thought this role was a better fit for KS. Believe it or not.

But speaking of KS, did you know she and co-star Robert Patterinersteinerson both got $12 Million for "New Moon." KS is younger than I am, and I'm lucky if I have $12 in my bank account. Anyone else up for gold digging?

But as for the film, "The Messengers." Well, let's just say casting the right lead actress couldn't save this crap-fest. The film also stars Dylan McDermott (The Practice) and John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), both of which are great actors, but this film didn't give them a chance to show any acting potential. It was boring, dull, cheezey, not scary at all for a horror film. And I don't blame the actors here. I'm not sure really, who could save this one.

So my result for "The Messengers," Kristin Stewart is good for her role, but the movie is shite.

QATFYG: So what are other Kristin Stewart roles you like? Have you heard that she is playing Joan Jett in an upcoming film called, "The Runaways?" And are you vampire freaks psyched for New Moon?

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
