Lip syncing is nothing new. It’s the pleasant party version of karaoke, and it’s a trap many artists have fallen into. For Matthew Perren, it’s a three year long experiment and project.

After the Oscar snub – I guess Melissa Leo really did earn that one, crazy lady that she is – I’m really happy to see Bonham Carter earn a title that is far cooler than any old Oscar. In fact, Bonham Carter was one of the very few awarded with a CBE, that is a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. This year’s list, published on December 31, also features a few other CBE’s.
Neither Queen nor the Family Stone topped the recent list of “Best Basslines of All Time,” a survey composed by Musicradar.com. Instead, the honor went to Muse’s hit 2003 song, “Hysteria” which actually has a rocking music video to boot. Rush’s “XYZ” followed, with Queen coming in third and fourth. I guess it’s pretty impressive “Another One Bites The Dust” and “Under Pressure” with David Bowie both made the top 25 cut, but still. James Brown rounded out the Top 25 with “Make it Funky.”

Nearly twenty years later, I know better.
What's the expiration date on covering the NBA Finals? Was it over yesterday? I don't care. I could rub this victory in the Miami Heat's stupid faces for another month. Not only is Cinema Blend Head Honcho Josh Tyler the biggest Mavericks fan north of Oklahoma, everyone who doesn't live in Miami and isn't a douche bag was pulling for the same team on Sunday night
