Chvrches has created a new version of their song “Down Side of Me” in support of Planned Parenthood. The Scottish band has just teased the upcoming video for the song, which was directed by Kristen Stewart. The actress broke the news about this collaboration during an interview with The New York Times last month.
“I had been asking them to let me do something for them for a while,” Stewart told the Times of the pop trio. “They’re so good. I ended up with a pretty simple but definitive narrative arc that highlights the cause in a sweet but quiet and confronting way.”
The remake of the song, which hails from the trio’s 2015 album “Every Open Eye,” will be part of the “7-Inches For Planned Parenthood,” a curated series of 7-inch vinyl records, »

Suddenly, so many things make sense. The Magicians' magical world of Fillory has never been all that logical. Some animals are sexy and some can talk, and there's an army called the Foo Fighters, and for some reason, its rulers can only be kids from Earth. And it's all watched over by a god named Ember who seems to be really, really bad at being a god, or doing anything useful that doesn't involve pooping in the magic supply. Or at least that's what we thought, until we saw the opening of this week's season two finale. In the three minute intro, Ember (Dominic Burgess) explains just how much of a hand he had in everything that has happened ever since the beginning of Fillory. »
BBC Music has inked a six-year deal for U.K. broadcasting rights to the world-renowned Glastonbury Festival.
The deal, announced Monday, covers the next five iterations of the legendary music festival through 2022. This includes Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary festival in 2020, while the 2022 festival will be broadcast in the BBC’s 100th anniversary year. The festival will not be held in 2018.
The new deal continues a long and successful partnership between the BBC and Glastonbury. In 2016 the BBC’s television coverage of the event reached a record 18.9 million people, representing nearly one third (31.9%) of the entire U.K. population.
“We have worked closely with a fantastic team at the BBC since 1997. It has become an integral part of what we do at Glastonbury,” said Emily Eavis, co-organizer of the Glastonbury Festival and daughter of festival founder Michael Eavis. “Together we have created something really special – two decades of historic live broadcast from many of the biggest names in »

We finally got to see what it was like when Julia attended Brakebills on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 10 "The Girl Who Told Time."
It's not surprising to learn Julia's magical discipline centers on knowledge. But it is puzzling to discover Dean Fogg shares the same power.
Mainly because, as Penny pointed out, the dean rarely manages to help anyone despite the students being in constant crisis mode.
I forgot all about the previous 39 timelines Jane created in her attempts to stop the Beast. Julia did, too, given the way she reacted to the dean saying he knew her.
That's not necessarily a bad thing. There are always so many stories happening at once on The Magicians. I like how they manage to weave original threads back into current stories.
I especially like the reminders when they include new ways to bring Alice back into the mix.
Julia: You don't know me. »

What an episode. “Cheat Day” consistently gave me chills, from the beginning right until the end. The episode focused on Quentin, and Julia, with some important subplots from Penny and Eliot. Let’s start with the small stuff. Eliot is going to be a dad! His subjects have a secret rebellion called the Foo Fighters! His wife used to be with the man who tried to kill him! So much nonsense in Fillory. Eliot is growing, and I love it. There’s not much more to say about it. Penny’s Mr. Miyagi scheme was lacking, but I did love the lead up

Is magic worth all the heartache it causes?
It certainly doesn't seem like it after watching the characters struggle with their realities on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 5 "Cheat Day."
But as Quentin discovered, escaping to the real world isn't as easy as he thought it would be.
Not when the pain of losing Alice remains so fresh in his mind and heart.
It was an interesting choice to bring Emily Greenstreet back as Quentin's coworker.
They have a lot in common. Both dropped out of Brakebills. Both lost someone they cared about to magic. Both are having a hard time letting go.
Not just of the magic, but of the people they loved.
Emily: Were you masturbating in your office?
Emily: Whatever. I do.
Quentin: What is this place?

Punk rockers Me First and the Gimme Gimmes' top priority when they hit the road is testicle care -- making sure their nuts are comfy. TMZ got a copy of the greenroom demands for the super group -- made up of Nofx's Fat Mike and Foo Fighters' Chris Shiflett -- and a 5 pack of Hanes nut huggers are apparently crucial to their success ... as is Nicorette gum, mint flavor only. They're playing the »

The final song of their mini-set — which included “Award Tour,” “Can I Kick It?,” and “Movin Backwards” — was “We the People,” the incendiary cut off their 2016 album We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service. As the instrumental began to play, longtime Tribe affiliate Busta Rhymes took a moment to address America’s current political state.

Some of us can barely make it from the kitchen to our bedroom without tripping over our on feet, so we’re endlessly impressed by these performers who get back up on the stage, no matter how many times they end up nosediving in front of a crowd.
These 12 onstage wipeouts were particularly memorable, and prove that cringing is basically an occupational hazard when you’re a music star.
Madge famously ended up on the floor when her theatrical cape failed to properly rip off near the beginning of a 2015 Brit Awards performance.
