Jonathan Groff singing Queen (you’re welcome)

Let Jesse St. James IGNITE your weekend.

If you watched GLEE, you know that Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff) is the best/most talented character on the show. That’s not an opinion either. That’s COLD HARD FACTS. He had Rachel Berry swooin’ like you wouldn’t believe, but always played hard to get. That’s who Jesse St. James is. The bad boy. Girls wanted him and guys(Mr. Schuster) wanted to be him. A lot of qualities I relate with…….except not at all.

If you need more of Jesse St. James (or just more impressive singing in general) I highly recommend watching Glee on Hulu. Have a great weekend y’all.

Trailer Alert – Suicide Squad

Ok, I think the choice of song in this trailer is blinding my judgment, but this looks incredible. I always knew DC had it in them. It only took Christopher Nolan to change the super hero movie game with his Batman trilogy. This looks like the gritty, dirty movie that the Suicide Squad deserves. And Will Smith as Dead Shot? Sign me up for a Halloween costume laster this year.

Music Monday – Queen

The man with the mustache (mustache-less in this video)…..he IS and WAS rock and roll.

Sweet Baby Jesus: Freddie Mercury is Back (He’s Still Dead Though)

Freddie Queen guitarist Brian May stopped by BBC Radio ostensibly to discuss Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell, his new book on 19th century French stereoscopic cards. But after detailing his lifelong love of the cards and their odd visions of hell, May revealed plans for a new Queen album featuring unreleased Freddie Mercury vocals from the Eighties. Asked what his favorite Queen song ever recorded was, May said the answer changes every time, but “my favorite at the moment is ‘Made in Heaven,’ which was never a single but it’s the title track off the [1995] album we made after Freddie was gone with all the pieces that were left. “I’ve just been doing something very similar because we found a few more tracks with Freddie singing and all of us playing and they’re quite beautiful. People will be hearing this work toward the end of the year.”

Freddie Haters Gonna Hate

I love Freddie Mercury. Not in the way that he would love me, but he was the best. If you can look me in the eyes and tell me a better vocalist than Freddie Mercury I’d probably rip your eyes out. On a serious note, the guy could write, sing and perform like nobody else, and the best part was he didn’t give a shit what anybody thought of him. He’d dress in drag for Queen’s music videos, sport a porn ‘stache and wear THE tightest clothes on stage. Then he’d belt out “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “Somebody to Love” or “Fat Bottomed Girls” and you’d sit there and enjoy the shooting star that was singing for you. I can’t wait for this to come out. Long live The King.

Badass of the Week – Freddie Mercury

Freddie-freddie-mercury-31144611-1572-886

 

When we started these “Badass of the week” posts I clearly stated that the person did not need to be relevant that particular week, or even alive. My pick happens to be both, and yet he is still my Badass of the Week, and that’s badass. Freddie Mercury had it all, the rock star look, the mustache, the voice, and an all-time great band behind him, queen. I have always said if I could sing like anyone in the history of the world I would sing like Freddie. This guy had a vocal range that couldn’t be touched and an energy that couldn’t be replicated. He could serenade you to sleep (It’s a Hard Life ) or rock your socks off (Bohemian Rhapsody). I have never seen Freddie Mercury live because sadly his life was cut far to short, but I have seen videos of his live performances, and they’re amazing. Freddie Mercury is my, vocally superior, badass of the week.

Kate Upton Should Run For Queen Of America

I’ve always been a fan of England’s power system. The prime minister might think he makes the decisions but it’s really up to the king and queen. He knows it, I know it, you know it. Being “the king” of something just sounds so much more badass than President. Companies have presidents. Country’s should have kings and queen. If America is going to name our first queen it should be someone who makes the Queen of England look like an old piece of shit. While that’s pretty much the easiest thing in the world to do, it would still be nice for the Queen of America to be someone who is nice to look at and has hall of fame boobs. Enter Kate Upton. Talk about having the world by the balls. SI cover girl two times over. Movie star. Model of the Year. Oh yeah and she’s 21. No biggie smalls. Get Clooney as her king and this country will prosper like never before.

London Must Be The Most Boring Place On The Planet

LONDON, July 17 (UPI) — Margaret Rhodes, British Queen  Elizabeth II’s first cousin, says she “is not terribly” excited about the  impending birth of Prince  William‘s first child. Rhodes made the comment when CNN’s Christiane Amanpour  asked her this week if she is excited about the new addition to the royal  family. “Not terribly,” she laughed. “Well, you know, everybody has babies, and it’s  lovely. I don’t get wildly excited about it.” “Really?” Amanpour asked. “Not even for the next heir to the throne?  History?” “Yes, all right, I’m prepared to be excited,” Rhodes said. William’s wife Kate  Middleton reportedly was due to give birth to their first child July 11, but  the palace hasn’t confirmed her due date and the baby has yet to arrive. NBC News said Middleton’s mom, Carole, has told friends the child will be a  Leo, an astrological sign whose dates don’t begin until July 23. Middleton also has been spending time at her parents’ country house — miles  from the London hospital where she intends to give birth — suggesting she’s not  expecting her baby until next week, Zap2it.com said. William is the queen’s grandson. – UPI.com

In the US THIS WEEK we had a murder trial that exposed the major flaws in our justice system, a TV star overdosed on heroin and heated abortion debates are consuming one of our largest states. None of those stories compare to the bombshell coming out of London, England this morning. The Queen’s first cousin “isn’t terribly excited” about the birth of Prince Williams baby. The balls on this lady. Comments like this will surely rock the country of England to it’s very core. How boring must it be to live in London? I know America is insane and we’re guilty of shining the spotlight on all of the wrong people and things, but at least we’re not boring. Fatally flawed, yes. But not boring. Meanwhile everyone in London is walking around with umbrella’s talking about how the Queen’s first cousin couldn’t give two shits about the birth of a royal baby. Hey lady, stick to tea, crumpets and cricket. That’s the English way.

P.S. It’s always bothered me that the English put the word “terribly” in front of the word “excited”. Are you bad at being excited? Get your shit together and butcher the language like an American.
