Quick Thoughts on Framing Hanley’s “Envy”

Listening to music.

Framing Hanley was a band I really enjoyed in the late 2000s, after they burst into the “emo” mainstream with their cover of Lil’ Wayne’s Lollipop and Hear Me Now. They continued putting out music for a few more years before announcing a break in 2015. In 2019, they reformed and started […]

My Favourite American Idol Alumni

Lee DeWyze, 12/28/19

American Idol premieres its eighteenth season (its third on ABC) tomorrow night. As the show has played a big part in my life, I’m definitely going to be watching, but I’m erring on the side of caution after what I felt was a lacklustre seventeenth season. Most of that can […]

Quick Thoughts on Kesha’s High Road

Listening to music.

Quick Thoughts on Demi Lovato’s “Anyone”

Listening to music.

While I don’t usually watch much of the Grammys, I couldn’t help but watch the telecast awaiting a performance from one of my favourite singers, Demi Lovato. When the moment finally arrived, I just transfixed on the TV and blocked all peripheral noise out, and I’m glad I did. The […]

Quick Thoughts on Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

Clerks. is one of my all-time favourite films, so I’ve always followed along with any news of a new View Askewniverse project – even if the events of Mallrats 2 and Clerks 3 haven’t exactly made it the best track record. Needless to say, when Jay and Silent Bob Reboot […]
