Florence and the Machine rocks the SNL stage

Florence and the Machine grabbed some major points for being one of the only VMA performances that wasn't terrible.  In Face it was amazing.  With one live TV performance under her belt Florence Welch brought her astounding talents to the famous Saturday Night Live stage.  The first song was, predictably, her immensely popular hit "Dog Days are Over".  She kept the set pretty simple with only a few back up dancers to the side and Florence herself kept the movement to a minimal (I don't blame her in that mini dress).  Her vocals however were everything I was expecting.  Pure Power. After a quick costume change Florence returned to perform "You've Got the Love" with a string quartet.  This performance was worlds away from her VMA performance in terms of its simplicity.  But even with just herself on the stage Florence has a stage presence you can't ignore.  It was nice to see her getting an opportunity to showcase other of her songs from her album Lungs.

World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...
