Summer Reads … Make you feel good.

Nothing feels as good as lying on the beach reading a book on a warm Summer day… But sometimes it’s hard to find a good book that’s worthy of said situation. Well the Buzz is here to help with some standout options of what to read this summer…

For Movie Lovers:
We all know that the best movies are not usually original ideas by screenwriters, but conversions from the movies predecessor: the book. We all also know that the books that serve as source material are usually better than the movies made for them. For this reason it’s always better to read the book first… Here are a few page-turners you should probably read before they come to life on the screen later this summer: Continue reading

College Bound; Making The Final Decision.

This past summer and fall you spent the majority of your spare time looking at college catalogs, visiting campuses, driving to SAT and ACT tests and of course filling out your applications.
Then you spent the last four months anxiously waiting for an answer. And now the wait is over, your mailbox is full of acceptance letters from the colleges you wanted to attend. The only question is, which one?
In a way, choosing from among the acceptances is a bit like choosing which schools to apply to. During the pre-application period, you gathered information about each college, so now you just need to revisit the information you already know and make a decision.

The GaGa/Beyonce 10 minute music video shocks fans and poisons people…

*Posted below is the CLEAN version of the video, the article below is written on the EXPLICIT version of the video which can be found at other websites.

Like most things that Lady GaGa does, the “Telephone” 10 minute music video featuring Beyonce, cannot be taken at face value.

Looking deeper into the epic clip for her latest single, one can find many pop culture references and product placements that bring so much more to the video than what originally meets the eye…

The video starts with some cheesy looking opening credits that lend themselves to the cheesy 70’s film theme that GaGa & her team were striving to attain. We then see GaGa entering a prison, being thrown into her cell and stripped down to next to nothing. This sets the audience up for by far the most shocking part of the video, where GaGa leaps at the camera, revealing everything and the prison guard explaining GaGa’s downstairs situation.

Said explanation was an answer to a question that has been surrounding Lady Gaga since she rose to fame in late 2008… Is the Lady really a lady at all? Rumors have flown around computer screens and tabloid covers for over a year now that Lady GaGa used to be a man and/or a hermaphrodite. The Lady denied these rumors consistently, but they never faded away so at 1:10 in the video, GaGa gives fans and critics alike more evidence than most probably ever needed to resolve the issue.

Spring into Fashion

It became clear this week as temperatures reached near 60 degrees and  light filled the sky past four o’clock, that spring is in fact upon us.
The spring lines have been out for several weeks and are now pushing aside the winter fur coats on store shelves around the world. Which means it’s time to dig yourself out of your winter hibernation of turtlenecks and sweatpants, and go spring shopping.
And this season has something for every fashion lover from, sheers, romantic, pastels, glamor and a touch of wild.

PRETTY SOFT PASTEL

This season, soft is not just about frilly blouses. Pick any article of clothing and find it in a variety tempting colors and textures. Pieces in jersey, cashmere or silk are layered and draped with an emphasis on smoothing over curves and adding a sense of ease. Head-to-toe girlie is not the trend I’m advising. Instead, pair a feathery skirt and a tailored jacket, or keep the focus on an elaborate neckline above a straight mini. Pastel colors should be one of you first choices when shopping for a spring wardrobe. The top 10 colors for woman’s spring fashion were announced by Paton at the Fashion Color Report 2010 in New York City. Violet, Aurora, Turquoise, Fusion coral, Tomato puree, Tuscany, Amparo blue, Pink champagne, Dried herb and eucalyptus are the colors to shop for.

Will the “Runaways” be a box office Runaway or a (Cherry) Bomb?

After three years of fighting fans, we are closer than ever to seeing how the “Runaways”, the Joan Jett/Cherie Currie biopic, will turn out …

In case you haven’t heard: fans of the band have been outraged since the announcement(s) that Kristen Stewart will play Joan Jett in the film alongside Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie, and fans of the actresses have been outraged at the former’s outrage.

It has been an endless argument on multiple message boards, and it is an argument that cannot truly be settled until the film comes out on April 9, 2010. But the recent release of promotional material for the motion picture is giving us a significant glimpse at what the film will be like.

Back in December of 2009 the first poster arrived online (right) alongside a very brief teaser trailer (above), but those both left much to be desired… Now, however fans and critics alike are delighted to get a full-length trailer (top), a full length music video for Dakota Fanning’s take of their hit “Cherry Bomb” (below), and a much more inviting poster with images of the stars.

Kristen and Dakota and the casting directors alike have all been criticized about the film. But fans of the band should know that the casting has a smiling seal of approval by the real Runaways themselves, Kristen Stewart has even been spotted hanging out with Joan Jett several times over the past two years.

“I was really lucky to have her be so into the project and so open about it, because not a lot of people my age know about The Runaways and it was the most important part of her life and kick-started her career.” -Kristen Stewart

Where before the message boards talked about how the girls are “too young” and “incapable” of playing these iconic women (they are, after all, stars of “Twilight”), they now read “impressive” and “better-than-expected”.

But it remains to be seen and heard whether or not Ms. Fanning & Ms. Stewart can fulfill those iconic platform shoes … Until April 9th, that is, when you can expect a respectable review right here from yours truly.
