For those Panic at the Disco fans – no need to start pulling your eyelashes out. According to their official website, it appears lead singer Brenden Urie (he’s Hawaiian on his mother’s side. Go figure!) and co-founder/drummer Spencer Smith are still members while co-founder/guitarist Ryan Ross and bassist Jon Walker are venturing off to do their own thing.

“Though the four of us have made music together in the past, we’ve creatively evolved in different directions which has compromised what each of us want to personally achieve. Over the years, we have remained close and honest with each other, which helped us to realize that our goals were different and that parting ways is truly what is best for each of us. We are all excited for the future, you should be too.”

The Clean Up Crew

"It's all about the paper"

"It's all about the paper"

I’m about a year late, but I just caught wind of this comedic web series “The Clean Up Crew”. Its basically, like, if you were to combine The Office and CSI. Taking comedy and the mockumentary set-up and combining it with the latter’s crime scene blood and guts.

The show follows the daily occurrences of a crime scene clean up crew as they deal with the competing businesses, snotty detectives, and just with each other.

My favorite crew member is the strong, but silent type Ofato (played with great comedic timing by Samoan actor Tyler Tuione). Too bad his character doesn’t say anything, but Tuione uses it to his advantage by getting his point across through his facial expressions. I think he does a better acting job than his counterparts with speaking roles.

Flashback Friday! (Rush, Rush-Paula Abdul)

abdulreevesrushLet’s go back to the early 90’s to a pre-American Idol Paula Abdul where she tried her acting chops in this long ass melodramatic video with Keanu Reeves for “Rush Rush” from her Spellbound album.

I’m guessing this is set in the 1940’s / 1950’s, yet Keanu always brings out that damn surfer/stoner boy accent which I’m sure didn’t exist yet. He was still hot though.

It’s kinda cute watching them romance each other because Paula looks like his little sister. She’s so tiny! Both of their performances should’ve garnered Academy Awards though *cough*
