Billy Boyd - The Last Goodbye music video

Music Video: Billy Boyd – “The Last Goodbye” (The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies)

Media | November 22, 2014


The Lord of the Rings actor & musician, Billy Boyd, was picked to sing the last song for Peter Jackson’s last film in the Tolkien universe. “The Last Goodbye” is the perfect song to finish off these 6 movies and having an actor so involved with the last trilogy, it’s pretty perfect if you ask me. The song is beautiful, and a bit sad since this is the last we’ll see from Middle Earth for a long, long time. The video is just Billy singing and playing guitar as footage from all 6 movies is playing. I’ll take Billy Boyd singing over Ed Sheeran any day.

Western Standard Time Orchestra

Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra recording second album

Music News | November 18, 2014


Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra features an all-star roster of musicians like members of Hepcat. The ska/big band orchestra plans on recording a new album as well as play live in other parts of the country (NYC better be in that plan!) and other countries. So they are asking for help from all the rudies around the world to help out via Indiegogo. You can donate just 5 bucks for the hell of it, pre-order the new album for 10 bucks and lots of other goodies to get. If you have big ass deep pockets, you can have the band play a show for you. Alex needs to hit up Jon Favreau I think.

The Peanuts Movie

Video: The Peanuts Movie full trailer

Media | November 18, 2014


I didn’t know there was a Peanuts movie in the works but apparently The Peanuts Movie is coming out in time just for next Christmas, on November 6th 2015. It’s the big-screen debut of Peanuts and being written by Charles Schulz’s son Craig and his son Bryan Schulz. The movie is being produced by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and directed by Steve Martino (Horton Hears a Who!,Ice Age: Continental Drift). Sounds like Fitz and the Tantrums have a song in the trailer as well. Based on the trailers and images I’ve seen, the animation and style of the movie looks perfect! I’m really hoping this doesn’t turn out to be a giant lame turd.
