released 2008

can you believe The Jonas Brothers invented being in love with their song “Lovebug” which came out in their third album, A Little Bit Longer, released August 12, 2008 with Hollywood Records.

Who needs “mental stability” and “contentment with yourself and your life” when you have Pretty Odd, the second studio album by American rock band Panic at the Disco. Recorded at the Studio at the Palms in Paradise, Nevada with additional production at Abbey Road Studios in London with producer Rob Mathes, the album was released March 25, 2008 on Decaydance and Fueled by Ramen. Inspired by baroque pop and the works of The Beatles and The Beach Boys, the psychedelic-styled rock album differs greatly from the techno-influenced pop punk of A Fever You Can’t Swea

DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda was first released on June 6, 2008.

To get the ambiance of the film, production designer Raymond Zibach and art director Heng Tang spent years researching Chinese art and kung fu movies. This effort, combined with the rest of the crew’s extensive research and knowledge of Chinese culture, so impressed the Chinese that there were meetings by official government cultural bodies to discuss why their own country has not produced animated films of such quality themselves.

Hey @anti-tony people I’m not sure if you know about this but marvel actually did a trilogy of like. super low-budget student-film type movies that go into a lot of Tony’s backstory and if you haven’t seen them that’s probably why you don’t know about any of Tonys character arc or just. general details about him as a person and his motivations over the past decade! I’d really recommend watching them so that everything makes a little more sense. The first one is like a little over 2 hrs long and apparently they didn’t even have a solid script or anything, and marvel was super nervous about hiring the lead actor, but I thought they turned out pretty well!! Anyway the first movie was released in 2008 and it’s called Iron Man and

OKAY GUYS BUT LOOK:

Let’s go back to generation 4 for a second:

Diamond and Pearl were released on September 28, 2006.

Platinum was released on September 13, 2008.

HeartGold and SoulSilver were released on September 12, 2009.

The order of release went the new games, then the sequel, then remakes of an old generation. From the looks of things, generation 7 is following a similar pattern.

Sun and Moon came out, now Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming out around the same time next year. This is the same pattern as generation 4, except there’s one thing: Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming out only ONE year after the original games.

What could this mean? It could be suggesting that the Sinnoh remakes are coming out right after. Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming out in 2017 so that a remake could be released in 2018 (which is the 10 year anniversary of Platinum). The time gap between Platinum and HG/SS was a year, so the time gap between US/UM and D/P/PT remakes could also be a year.

TL;DR: Sinnoh’s coming next, but most likely in 2018 if there’s a pattern that’s being followed.

BTS Crack the Bubbling Under Hot 100 With 'Spring Day,' Conquer Multiple Charts With 'You Never Walk Alone'

By releasing a new version of their hit Wings album coupled with four creatively challenging new songs and a truly powerful lead single, BTS continue to conquer new territory on multiple Billboard charts with the release of You Never Walk Alone.

Most notably, the K-pop boy band’s new single “Spring Day” debuts at No. 15 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart for the chart dated March 4, 2017. The Bubbling Under Hot 100 acts as an extension of the 25 songs that have yet to chart on the definitive Hot 100 singles chart and are just below the top 100 slots. Like the main Hot 100 chart, rankings are based on sales, radio airplay and streaming data.

The feat is truly unprecedented given K-pop’s history on Billboard’s singles chart. While the group does not land on the Hot 100 comparing them to the groups that have puts into perspective how the impressive chart performance of “Spring Day.”

Wonder Girls were the first K-pop act to chart on the Hot 100 with “Nobody,” a song that was a megahit when released in Korea in 2008 and eventually landed on the Hot 100 a year later thanks to the group re-recording it in English and performing it on U.S. television shows. CL also landed on the Hot 100 with “Lifted,” but again this was an English song promoted on The Late Late Show With James Corden. PSY is the only K-pop act to send Korean-language songs to the Hot 100 (so far, four of them), but has been assisted by an American record deal and management. To compare: BTS’ “Spring Day” is almost all in Korean, had zero promotions in America, was released new music during a notoriously competitive week with the 2017 Grammy Awards, and “Spring Day” dropped on a Sunday making their charting window smaller than other releases. The accomplishment gives hope and acts as a guiding light to the burgeoning K-pop scene and gives indication of how Korean acts can continue making their mark on the American industry.

“Spring Day” sold 14,000 digital downloads in the week ending Feb. 16, according to Nielsen Music. The total puts BTS at No. 1 on World Digital Songs Sales giving the band their third No. 1 on the chart. In fact, all four new songs from You Never Walk Alone hold down the first four slots making BTS the first act on World Digital Song Sales to do so. “Day” is followed by “Not Today” (which sold 12,000), “A Supplementary Story: You’ll Never Walk Alone” (8,000) and “Outro: Wings” (6,000).

Looking at You Never Walk Alone as a whole – a repackaged version of Wings that came with four new songs – the album debuts at No. 61 on the Billboard 200 – extending BTS’ record as the K-pop act with the most entries on America’s definitive albums chart to four. So far, they’ve bowed with The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2 (which hit No. 171), The Most Beautiful Moment In Life: Young Forever (No. 107), and Wings (No. 26). G-Dragon and BIGBANG are the only other K-pop acts to boast more than one entry on the Billboard 200.

And as if they couldn’t have more to celebrate, You Never Walk Alone debuts at No. 1 on World Albums giving BTS their third chart-topper on that ranking.

Check back to Billboard.com the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 22 to see BTS’ accomplishments when all the charts are refreshed.
