About a year ago Rob Thomas, the creator of the cult classic TV Series about a teenage detective, Veronica Mars, created a Kickstarter to get the film version of the story funded. The show was so beloved, that it’s fans funded the film in approximately 6 minutes! If you’ve never watched the series that introduced the world to Kristen Bell, you have some Netflix homework ahead of you. For those wanting to know more about the series or those excited about the new film, check out the opening scene of the new film.
I was just talking with a friend of mine this past weekend about how it’s been far too long since we’ve heard anything new from Bright Eyes frontman, Conor Oberst. And then yesterday we got treated with a brand new song off his upcoming solo record, Upside Down Mountain. Oberst kicks off the first leg of his worldwide tour on May 8th ahead of the album release on the 20th. IHYEB favorites, Dawes will be accompanying Oberst on the tour as both the opening act and his backing band. The new song is called “Hundreds of Ways” and you can stream it below.
One of the funniest bits that Jimmy Kimmel does on his show is take to the streets and interview people about things that either don’t exist or haven’t happened yet and see what kind of response they give. He calls it Lie Witness News. It’s amazing how many people will just b.s. their way through the interview. In the latest installment of Lie Witness News, they asked people what they thought about the President’s State of the Union address, which hadn’t even taken place at the time of the interview. It is absolutely hysterical.
I can’t believe this is actually happening. The entire gang is back and it looks real promising. I think I’m gonna have to re-watch the tv series in anticipation of it’s theatrical release on March 14th.
