Weekly Music Video

Today's video is yea, babe, no way by LANY. They are an American 3 piece band and their music is described as "dream pop". Members are lead singer Paul Klein who plays the keyboard and the guitar as well, Les Priest who also sings and plays the keyboard and guitar and drummer Jake P. Goss.

The group formed in March 2014. In April they uploaded the songs Hot Lights and Walk Away to Soundcloud and released their debut EP Acronyms later that year. (LANY is an acronym for LA to New York). They were anonymous at first because Jake and Les had previously had their own project/duo WRLDS and they wanted their new music to stand alone.

Last December LANY signed to British label Polydor Records and brought out the EP Make Out which contained songs from previous releases. Their first official single WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS? was released in March this year. The band also have two other EPs, I Loved You (2015) and kinda (2016).

I saw this video on MTV Rocks last night. I don't watch that channel a lot because it's not really my kind of music (although I do like some gothic and symphonic rock) but I flick through the channels sometimes. I liked the song and thought I'd feature it today. I'd never heard of dream pop before so it was also good to discover a new genre. :)

yea, babe, no way was released this month and is from LANY'S latest EP kinda.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Top 10 True Movies

I like watching films based on true stories. I used to watch them occasionally as a child and teen but I started watching them more after the True Movies channels (True Movies 1 and True Movies 2) launched on Sky 11 years ago. It seems weird that it's been so long, lol. I usually watch the films on those channels (or True Entertainment) but I also sometimes watch them on Lifetime or other channels. (I think a lot of these are Lifetime original movies but we didn't get the Lifetime channel in the UK until late 2013).

I thought that today I'd share my Top 10 True Movies. :)


Trigger warning:

Most of the films are based on crimes (often murder or abuse) and I realise these are difficult subjects, so read with caution if you're sensitive to these type of films.
