Band: Reefer Album: Reefer 3 1/2 out of 5 stars Perhaps earlier this year you read my review for Human Highway's album Moody Motorcycle. If so, then I don't really need much of an introduction to the main guy behind Reefer. But just in case you missed it, here goes the abridged version: Canadian musician Nick Thorburn is or was in the following bands: The Unicorns, Th' Corn Gangg, Islands, Human Highway and now the Hawaiian indie pop escapade Reefer.
Generally this is how a band's musical career will go: They put out their first album, it's poppy, full of hits and pretty straightforward. Their next album is a lot like the first, but not quite as good since they're still using the same basic styles and sounds.
A narrator's voice speaks out of the darkness, talking of legend and a blue-eyed girl. He goes on to illuminate all of the significance behind the grand scope of the story, and though he's trying to sound important, he's more like that annoying guy in the movie line who critiques the film before he's even seen it. Instead of captivating the audience, the voiceover simply sounds pretentious.
How does one adapt a book about the love of reading into a movie? Just like this. "Inkheart" is based on the internationally best-selling book by Cornelia Funke, and tells the story of Meggie (Eliza Bennett, "Perfect Life") and Mo (Brendan Fraser, "Adventure at the Center of the Earth").

One, two, three, four, who is it we’re cheering for? Five, six, seven, eight, probably someone out of state!

These 16 games mean a minimum of 16 halftime slots to fill, and associate Athletics Director Tim McDiffett. With his volunteer Shootout committee, have been looking for acts to fill those gaps in action.
On paper, Matthew Thomas Dillon's band Windmill does not sound all that special. He's a singer-songwriter from England who plays the piano and writes songs about heartbreak. It sounds like a Coldplay or a Keane album. But in actuality it sounds more like a Flaming Lips or a Why? record ghostwritten by Elliott Smith.

Lie flat on the ground, your face down, arms tightly held to your sides. You are now planking. Despite its basic concept, people all over the world took this silly, simple idea and ran with it. Or, to be more accurate, took the idea and lied down motionlessly on the ground with it. The origin of planking had been in doubt for some time. Many thought it originated in England or Australia in the early 2000’s.
