I started getting into Cheryl Cole after getting her latest album, A Million Lights. The album's leading single, 'Call My Name' was an infectious lead produced by Calvin Harris (he, of Rihanna's #1 single 'We Found Love'). This week, No Doubt, also debuted the single off their first album in over ten years 'Settle Down' as long as their accompanying music video within 12 hours after releasing the single on Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show. Also of note was the release of Nelly Furtado's second single off her upcoming album of the same name, Spirit Indestructible. I like it a lot more than the lead single and the music video is gorgeous and typical, traditional Nelly Furtado. The only weird thing was the fact that she hasn't released a mp3 of the single, although she said it will come out next week. I just think that it is odd that the music video was released two weeks prior to the single.
What I Watched
My brother and I were able to go see The Dark Night Rises together before he left and went back to Afrghanistan after these past two weeks of R'n'R. It was pretty cool since the past four years we have been to a lot of midnight releases of comic book movies and it was fitting that we were able to see the final Batman movie in Christopher Nolan's trilogy. I loved it, I loved it so much and it was such a great conclusion to the rilogy with nods to the two films prior to it. Of course whatever the case, it wasn't going to satisfy everything and yes there were some gaping plot holes that were hard to ignore but I thought it was still really original and pefect. Nobody coming after Heath Ledger's Joker could hold a candle in comparison but Tom Hardy did an admirable job, and Anne Hathaway was very good and impressive in a supporting role as Catwoman, aka Selina Kyle.
