Eros And Apollo
Studio Killers
Eros And Apollo

#10. Studio Killers - Eros And Apollo (3:28)

Why the long face? Sad that your favorite cartoon band, Gorillaz, are no more? Say hello to the newest gang of animated music makers, Studio Killers! Like Gorillaz, Studio Killers are based in the UK, and they’re composed of Goldie Foxx, Dyna Mink, and Cherry. Their first single “Ode To The Bouncer” has been bouncing around the internet for awhile now (and if you haven’t seen it yet, now is a great time to do so), but the cartoon crew just recently released their first album and “Eros And Apollo” is my favorite track. If you’re not immediately entranced by the opening piano line, maybe you’ll appreciate the way the Cherry’s melancholic, bittersweet voice contrasts with Goldie and Dyna’s immaculate production. Or perhaps you’ll smile at the way she equates hearts to cereals (plural!) while warning young lovers about a potentially dangerous romantic situation. In any case, if you’re a fan of sparkling, shiny electro-pop with a bit of a cute twist, Studio Killers is a concoction you should give a test drive.

Best Moment: Each time Cherry goes over the top in the chorus for “Señorita’s” and “Sweet Lolita’s”, first showing up at 0:55.

The Album [Studio Killers]: 8/10

AGNES i need a huge favor. Im trying to convince my non 1d friend of M!M force closeting habits and of larry realness. So i need both receipts links to videos picturess a giffs. Pleaseeeeee. Its really important thx babe

I can’t believe I just did this, but yeah. 

I present to you the Larry Is Real Masterpost of masterposts/ the ultimate guide to Larry. It is really long, but I tried for it to be as organized as possible. Contains parts such as “tattoos”, “TXF”, “Management” etc. each part includes links to videos, links to masterposts, gifs, photos, tweets, timelines etc.

You are welcome to use this either as Larry resource, or when having doubts or when trying to convince someone. I’m sure this will work just perfectly, though I have to warn you that it is painful.

Thanks to everyone in this fandom making these masterposts and gifs, you are amazing.

The Julie Ruin
Just My Kind

#15. The Julie Ruin - Just My Kind (3:51)

It’s been awhile since our favorite riot grrrl Kathleen Hannah has released any music. Bikini Kill’s final album was in 1996 and the last we’ve heard from Le Tigre was 2004. This puts her at about ten years absent from the scene, so her return as The Julie Ruin is a welcome one. Run Fast certainly has a few songs reminiscent of her rowdy past like “Kids In NY” and “Party City”, but my favorite moment on the album is a slower one. “Just My Kind” is where Kathleen lays out the feelings she has for her other half and it’s hands down the best courtship mix-tape cut of the year. Hearing Kathleen’s unmistakable voice spearhead such a tender moment is just so endearing and it’s obviously meant to be placed between the ears of a new crush (or old flame). 

Best Moment: The tension that lights up for the final “I’m gunna yell it out, ah, ah, I’m gunna scream it out” at 2:52.

The Album [Run Fast]: 7/10

**This took me forever, so if you steal this I will not be happy


Last year, I did a Top 100 moments post from the Take Me Home Tour in 2013. That one was illuminating in its consistency and was a great way to revisit a year most of us do not think of with great fondness.

This list was different to put together. It was less about proving consistency (though that is still apparent) but more about enjoying the little looks and exchanges we still get to see. While they were certainly more restricted in their interactions on and off stage (at least after the astounding South American leg),  overall, 2014 was a much easier and more enjoyable year than the previous one in a lot of ways, for them and for us.

We Exist
Arcade Fire
We Exist

#13. Arcade Fire - We Exist (5:43)

Arcade Fire have emerged as the defining indie band of the 2000’s, mastering the Herculean task of impressing hardened critics while simultaneously winning over new casual fans, and with the release of their fourth album Reflektor, they show no signs of slowing down. Each album has been able to build upon the previous one without anything feeling recycled or rehashed. Their fourth album coasts along nicely after the momentous success of The Suburbs, and my favorite song is “We Exist”. As usual, the band leaves no stone unturned, laying down many subtle moments throughout the track that reveal themselves after multiple listens, like the guitar picking at 1:51 or the bass tone change at 3:28. And, of course, just when we might feel like things might be turning predictable, the band ratchets things up for the second half of the song, blowing us away with an incredible culmination of vocals, strings, piano, and like eight other instruments along with that ever present bassline.

Best Moment: While the final go around at 4:41 is good, the best part is actually at 2:23 when the bassline first goes up instead of down.

The Album [Reflektor]: 8/10

TOP 100: Take Me Home Tour H/L Moments 2013

Lisa, Jess and I have been getting super excited for the WWA tour and thought a great way to get even more excited would be to go through every H/L moment from the 2013 tour and put them into a top 10 list. 

As you can tell by the title of this post, that did not happen. Because guess what! This is the hardest post I’ve ever had to make because I couldn’t pick 10 or 20 or even 50 “essential” moments from this tour. 


We all pine for the days of yore when the Up All Night tour was going strong, and there were a lot of moments I love from that tour. But it was also a much shorter tour and took place over a shorter period of time. It was a case study in teenage love affair: flirting, sex and hearteyes. The Take Me Home tour was different (obviously lol) in that it was much more subdued (partly for unhappy reasons).

But after going through this, I think I might like this tour better, which seems crazy, but once you go through this list (and Lisa’s), you’ll see that this tour was all about being settled, domestic and fond in the face of what appeared to be pretty extreme measures to have us believe they weren’t even friends anymore. 

But once you go through this list, I think you’ll agree, that nothing that matters has changed.

Let’s do this.

Sweet Tooth
Blue Hawaii
Sweet Tooth

#55. Blue Hawaii - Sweet Tooth (3:31)

Wishing you had some new Grimes songs to obsess over? Worn out your copy of Purity Ring’s Shrines? Maybe it’s time to give “Sweet Tooth" a try. Blue Hawaii is the side project for Braids vocalist Raphaelle Standell-Preston and she has a gift for assembling hair-raising synth-based creep outs. "Sweet Tooth” begins with just a few repeated notes on a keyboard, but eventually the beat begins to match pace with our heartbeat and Raphaelle’s voice is chopped up and cast towards us from quite a few shadowy directions. The end result is a song well suited to soundtrack a long winter’s night. Lucky for us.

Best Moment: From 2:40 to 2:56, when the second half of the song peaks out after a slow build and we’re assaulted with multiple instances of Raphaelle and her demands of love.

The Album [Untogether]: 6/10

Brie Code Lead Progammer

Today we interviewed Brie Code Lead Programmer for Child of Light.  We talked about working on a small team and diversity and female protagonists. 

1.            What were some of the unique challenges that came up during the production of Child of Light?

At Ubisoft Montreal we know a lot about making big games with big teams. Before starting Child of Light, I was thinking it would be a bit of a break! But while it was refreshing and different to work on a smaller team, it turned out it was definitely not easier. Everything we knew about making games was not necessarily true anymore.

On big teams you can become highly specialized in your work. For example, during most of my career I’ve been coding AI systems. I’ve spent years and years on AI systems. But on a smaller team, everyone is a generalist. So we all got to learn A LOT. It has been a super rewarding experience to learn about all the different parts of the pipeline, all the different parts of the game engine. And especially to be able to get closer to the hardware and learn more about all the different consoles we develop for. We’ve got an AI programmer doing all the networking, and a gameplay programmer owning the sound engine. And this “everyone does a bit of everything” ethos stretched beyond the programming team. For example, our writer would run parts of the story by me, and one of our designers was doing very technical scripting. It’s been a really varied and fun experience.

2.            How do you think the diversity of the Child of Light team helped the production?

You can find a lot to read about how diverse teams can outperform even more qualified teams, and it is not difficult to see why. Diverse teams bring a variety of personalities, backgrounds, and ideas. They tend to communicate more since there is no assumption of shared knowledge or previously-established social rituals to uphold. They also tend to bring multiple approaches to problem solving …or even to defining what problems to solve. And this last point is the most interesting to me.

I think it’s a really good time to look to diverse teams for innovation. It’s no secret that the game industry suffers from a lack of diversity, and this shows in what the industry produces. We make games about guns and about the same protagonist over and over, from game to game to game. But what other games could we create?


3.            What do you think about the burgeoning community of innovative game developers?

I love what is going on in the indie community and what they are doing to explore new gameplay, new stories, new ways to convey meaning. All my favorite games right now are indie games. And tech-wise, it is a really exciting time also. Partly because the tech has sort of stagnated, we have to look at innovating no longer just on realism but on everything else. And at the same time, so many people who aren’t gamers now have tablets or smartphones. Something I’ve seen recently is a remarkable number of my non-gamer friends inheriting previous-gen consoles, and wondering what to play. (They love Journey.)

So I think we can innovate, and we can expand our audience, if our development teams include not only hardcore gamers but also casual gamers, gamers who used to game but don’t anymore, and especially people who love culture and media but don’t game (yet). And I think we have a good mix like this on Child of Light. We’re mostly hardcore industry veterans, some of us are more casual gamers, we come from all over the world, and we have a good balance of gender and sexualities and ages. With all these different perspectives, we’ve had some great debates and we’ve learned a lot from each other. And I hope we’ve made a game that can appeal to a wide range of people, from seasoned Squaresoft fans to my friends who have just discovered Journey.

4.            How do you feel about making a game with a female protagonist?

I think representation in media is very important. I remember one day while I was finishing Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, I was rushing through the metro, and I saw this life-size poster with the Brotherhood flanking Ezio. A teenage girl walked up in front of me, slowly, looking at the poster, and then she walked straight up to the female Assassin and reached out and touched her face and just stood there for a while looking.

I have at times debated whether this is the right industry for me. I’ve been attached to the computer since I was tiny and grew up loving games and loving programming. And this industry is an industry full of growth and opportunity and passion. And my colleagues are some of the hardest working and most friendly and intelligent people I have ever met. But at times I get lonely. It can be lonely to be the only woman or one of very few women on the team, or to be the only one with my own girly taste in film or books or whatever. But seeing that girl standing there, it made it all worth it, because I realized that it is worth pushing for more diversity within the industry and for a diversity of characters within the games we make.

That girl reminded me what it was like to be young and looking for role models and how powerful it can be to see yourself represented in the media that surrounds you. My favorite games growing up were Colonel’s Bequest and Zak McKracken. Later it was Starcraft, then the Longest Journey and Morrowind, and more recently it’s been Skyrim and Gone Home. Most of my favorite games have compelling characters, often compelling female characters, and I think that is not a coincidence.

For many years most films have had mostly male characters because it is assumed that while women will see a movie with a male protagonist, men won’t see a movie with a female protagonist. And so female-led movies won’t make money. But I think this last year may have disproved this. It’s exciting and you can look it up: In the top 100 grossing films of 2013, female-led movies grossed on average more than male-led movies. As well, it was found this year in an analysis of movies since 1990 that movies that pass the Bechdel test have netted higher than movies that don’t.

Can we prove the same with games? I want to.

And so it has been such a pleasure and an honour and a dream come true to work on Child of Light. I love the character of Aurora. She’s brave and tough and relatable and girly and cute and rises against adversity. She’s an interesting character.

And all of this is beside the fact that people in real life are just so interesting and so varied. People are fascinating. And in games, we are making virtual worlds, and so we can make anything we want. I think we have a responsibility then to create interesting, varied characters.




NEW YORK, NY (September 9, 2016) — STEVIE WONDER delivers the new collaboration entitled “Faith” [feat. ARIANA GRANDE] for Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures’ SING, it was announced last night during Ariana Grande’s interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  The song will be available soon via Republic Records, as well as on the upcoming release of the Sing Official Soundtrack Album.  Sing opens in theaters everywhere on December 21.

“Faith” unites Academy Award®- and GRAMMY Award-winning Stevie Wonder and multi-platinum GRAMMY Award nominee Ariana Grande.  Produced by powerhouses and multi-GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter/producers Ryan Tedder [Adele, Beyoncé, U2] andBenny Blanco [Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry], “Faith” marks the first song that Stevie Wonder has contributed to a film in more than 25 years.

Stevie Wonder remains one of the most legendary and influential artists in history.  In addition to selling more than 100 million albums worldwide, he has garnered a total of 25 GRAMMY Awards—the most-ever awarded to a male solo artist in history.  Among countless accolades, he is an Academy Award® winner and landed at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 All-Time Artists. A paragon of goodwill, charity and activism, he was even named a Messenger of Peace by the United Nations.

ABOUT SING            
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (Academy Award® Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times.  Buster is an eternal optimist—okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrel—who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it.  Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition, even if the prize money isn’t exactly in the bank yet.

Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (Seth MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Academy Award® Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.  Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.  And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.

Featuring more than 65 hit songs, Sing is written and directed by Garth Jennings (Son of Rambow, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.  Released by Universal Pictures, Sing arrives in theaters for the holiday season on December 21, 2016.

Within less than a year, ARIANA GRANDE captured No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 twice—first with her Republic Records debut “Yours Truly” and also with its 2014 follow-up, “My Everything.”

“Yours Truly” yielded the game-changing pop smash “The Way” featuring Mac Miller, which went triple-platinum, landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and seized No. 1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart. Meanwhile, the platinum-selling My Everything garnered a GRAMMY Award nomination for “Best Pop Vocal Album” and spawned the six times-platinum hit “Problem.” Upon the single’s release, Ariana became “the youngest woman to debut with over 400K sold first-week,” while the song ranked as the 5th “highest digital song debut for a female artist” and 9th highest ever. Moreover, it debuted at No. 1 in 85 countries, topping the iTunes Overall Top Songs and Pop Songs charts for four weeks.

During release week, “My Everything” was No. 1 on Spotify as Ariana personally rose to No. 1 on Billboard’s Artists 100 chart. She also became the first woman in history and the first artist since Michael Jackson to simultaneously have three songs—“Problem,” “Break Free” featuring Zedd, and “Bang Bang” with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J—in the Top 6 of the Digital Songs Chart. “Bang Bang” went platinum and was GRAMMY-nominated for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” By the end of the year, she landed four songs in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100; the most of any artist in 2014. Ariana has enjoyed five Hot 100 Top 10 smashes.

In 2013, Ariana was named “Best New Artist” at the American Music Awards.  Other accolades followed, with Ariana winning “Favorite Breakout Artist” at the People’s Choice Awards 2014, the “Young Influencer Award” at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the “Radio Disney Chart Topper Award,” “Choice Female Artist” and “Choice Single” “Problem” at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and more.  At the 2014 MTV VMAS, “Problem” was named “Best Pop Video” as well. In November, Ariana took home the award for “Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock” at the 2015 American Music Awards.

2016 sees Ariana release her mega-anticipated third full-length album, “Dangerous Woman,” driven by the title track, which captured No. 1 on both iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and Top Pop Songs Chart minutes after release.  “Dangerous Woman” also debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, earning her the distinction of becoming the first artist to debut on the chart with the lead single from her first three albums.

Female speaking roles in top movies hasn’t changed in 70 years

According to Lauzen’s findings, which looked at more than 2,300 characters appearing in the top 100 grossing domestic films of 2013, the number of female-speaking roles has barely changed over the past 70 years. Women totaled just 30% of all speaking roles in 2013 (and this number “includes major and minor characters”). And only half of these speaking parts were as leading characters.
