Disney’s Rebel Princess

Posted in Humor, Movies, Music, Society on August 19th, 2014

Certainly, you don’t have to enjoy Disney’s Frozen. You do, however, have to face the fact that Elsa is Disney’s rebel princess…and in more ways than just her sexuality.

Elsa of Arendelle – Disney’s Rebel Princess

Whether is saying, “Fuck It All” to her final exams or “Let ‘Em Burn” about people who’ve hurt her or held her down, Elsa is most definitely a rebel through and through.

Three From Korr-A

Posted in Music on June 26th, 2014

So…Here’s three interesting and, I hope, entertaining electronic / pop / quasi-hip-hop music videos from Korr-A aka Kristina Korban.

If you like Korr-A’s work, you can get her music from iTunes or Amazon, depending upon your preferred device and format.

Actually, not only was discovering Korr-A pleasant, it was serendipitous. I only discovered this woman’s music due to a “pop under” advertisement that came up while web surfing for my recent post on Ukraine’s talent for stupidity. And yes! Korr-A aka Kristina Korban was born in Kiev, UA.

The Audience Was Thunderstruck

Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, the duo known as 2Cellos, left the audience thunderstruck – pun quite intended – with their cover of the 1999 AC/DC hit single.
