Yes, I watch GLEE, not for the plot (which is toilet paper thin), but for the musical numberts. It truly is the American Idol for fall.

October 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Amazon Kindle is offering “Witch and Wizard” by James Patterson for FREE download via pre-order until December 14.

Click here to pre-order for free!

Book Description:

Imagine you wake up and the world around you – life as you know it – has changed in an instant. That’s what has happened to Whit Allgood and his sister, Wisty. They went to sleep as normal teenagers, and woke up as wanted criminals. Accused of holding incredible powers they’d never dreamed possible. Find out just how different they are. It begins – now.

The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they’d never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents–and maybe the world?

Leaks From David Archuleta’s Christmas From the Heart Album!

October 10, 2009 16 comments

David Archuleta’s Christmas album “Christmas From The Heart” drops on October 13. AND two songs have leaked so far: ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ (featuring Charice Pempengco) and the original song ‘Melodies of Christmas’. You can preview the other songs on the album on Amazon right now.

Listen to ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Listen to ‘Melodies of Christmas

ETA : OMG! Someone just sent me a copy of David Archuleta’s ‘Ave Maria’ – and HOLY s***! Chills baby – he is inhumanely perfect in this track. Sorry to sound like a deranged fan… but seriously! seriously! Listen!!! This track just convinced me to plunk down the $$$ for the album…

ETA 2 : Here’s a higher quality stream of ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

ETA 3 : Pat-A-Pan also leaks! Click here to listen.

David’s voice was made for Christmas songs, seriously. I think it’s the combination of the purity of his voice mixed with a warm boyish/innocent tone.

However, the original song ‘Melodies of Christmas’ seems to be lacking in, well, a memorable melody. A good catchy melody I might add. I don’t know, maybe it’s just because I’m so used to listening to familiar Christmas songs… but for me, this song lacks a strong hook / catchy chorus that can earworm itself into your brain. Don’t get me wrong, David sounds great; the lyrics I can go along with; the music itself? not so great. I’ll give it a couple of more listens, maybe it’s one of those songs that sound better the more you listen to it.

As for ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, David and Charice sound good together on their duet! Charice has a tendency to oversing / overpower, but she sounds beautifully understated here. She and David harmonize well together. It’s a pity that I personally just never liked this song (or I’d have enjoyed it more). I hope that Oprah Winfrey invites Charice to sing the song on her show (so David can tag along) since Oprah just looooves little Charice. David’s competing against THE Bob Dylan (who also has a Christmas album out that has an almost identical title! Christmas In the Heart) so David will need all the advertising help he can get.

I’m looking forward to listening to the other tracks which sound great on the Amazon previews. Hope they leak soon too!

FREE Download – iPod Touch and iPhone Game ‘Peter und Vlad’

October 10, 2009 1 comment

FREE for just this weekend, download the iPod Touch and iPhone game ‘Peter und Vlad’ from App Shopper!

Product Description:

Peter und Vlad is an action adventure game for iPhone and iPod touch with a herding flavor that allows you decide the fate of the Sedov brothers, Peter and Vlad in their epic battle with an invention-gone-mad!

Vlad Sedov, the mad scientist has created a weather machine to help his brother Peter with his farming chores. In his design of the machine, Vlad made some rather dangerous mistakes as the machine gets its energy from sheep wool and he forgot to add an off button to the machine!

It’s up to you to guide Peter in his effort to flock the sheep into the farmhouse and prevent a disaster!

Features:

* Alternative gameplay mode: In Zen mode you can practice your herding skills for as long as you like without having to worry about the danger of the weather machine.
* Peter’s good knowledge of mushrooms gives him that extra something he’ll need to save his sheep from his brother’s weather machine. Remember though that Peter is under a lot of stress and therefore could make a mistake by eating a toxic mushroom – with humorous results.
* Real-time weather transformation effects as the out-of-control weather machine morphs summer into autumn, winter and spring.
* Local and global leaderboards that measure your efficiency as a herder.
* Original soundtrack performed by E.V.O (the Electronic Vlad Orchestra).

2012 – Adam Lambert Music Teaser (Time for Miracles snip!)

October 10, 2009 3 comments

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about "2012 – Adam Lambert Music Teaser", posted with vodpod

** The FULL song got leaked. Click here to listen! **

Whoops! Screw real life when it makes me miss this! I guess that I’m sooo late to the party right now.

It’s just a snippet and I basically still have no idea if the song is really good, but still I’m having CHILLS, baby. Adam’s voice just soars in the few seconds I can hear him! I can understand why Brian May had to go and blog about it after listening to the whole song. Can’t wait till the whole single is released!

New Edit : Here’s BOTH previews combined into one package for your easy listening! (Download LINK care of ontd_ai again)

It’s a GREAT time to be an Adam Lambert fan, don’t you agree? Listen to a cleaned up MP3 of the snippet from the video!

** If video won’t play, it’s also on YouTube. And here’s a DOWNLOAD LINK for the cleaned up MP3 for your iPods (thanks to ontd_ai) **

ETA : And listen to another snippet, this time care of Amazon!

** And here’s the DOWNLOAD LINK for the Amazon UK snippet (again, thanks to ontd_ai) **

ETA 2 : Reviews are in for the snippet, and as expected, pretty raving ones (since it’s Slezak & Parker so far…)
