In the 70s, a new kind of music was created which was the flawless melodious bridge from the defiant of the 1960s to the emergence of a happy 1980s. Dissimilar to the counterculture of the 60s, the 70s music was relaxing and could make people move. Through the 80s music, people could forget the war of the past decade, and enjoy some good music in dance clubs. That is when the Disco movement started as people needed a place to vent their frustration. Indeed, the 1970s was not the only decade which created a real transformation in terms of music, however it was unique.
If a word could define the musical style of the 70s, then Disco is the utmost perfect word, and Betty totally agrees with this. Betty has always admired the music style of the 70s. Betty Balls loves looking at these old song videos on YouTube occasionally, and she always hum of these songs while doing her daily activities. Do you know who Betty is? She is the darling of Lucky Pants Bingo, and the true love of Luke. Lucky Pants Bingo is the one place you will always find Betty and Luke while playing bingo games only. Those two lovely bingo mascots rock the bingo rooms every Saturday with their cheeky words, and amazing tournaments. If you want to know more of their unlimited love-tales, take a trip to one of UK’s best bingo website- Lucky Pants Bingo, and feel the bingo-love with the amazing Bingo couple.
It is no wonder that Betty loves that type of music. Despite that the 70s-music’s popularity was short-lived, that genre of music rocked the discos, and consisted of a great deal of artists and songs. Until now, fans still dance to these songs, and this music genre had a great influence on fashion as well. For instance, “The Hustle” by Van McCoy is still known as the first ever disco song. That song is said to have set the trend for disco tracks. Gloria Gaynor also gained popularity with her very famous “I will survive” which is still played at weddings and themed clubs. Do you still remember The Bee Gees? They literally defined the disco genre with their hit song “Jive Talkin”, and their most popular song still is “Stayin’ Alive”.
Other famous blockbusters of the 70s are The Village People’s “YMCA” and “Macho Man” which gave even more popularity to this genre of music. Rod Steward and Diana Ross also have a hand in shaping the 70s music when they added disco elements to their music releases, as well as releasing disco albums.
But disco music was not the only trending genre in the 70s. Other music genre such as popular rock from Pink Floyd, Queen, Electric Light and Kansas was also part of that culture. Funk & Soul songs from James Brown, Wind & Fire, Earth and The Isley Brothers were quite known, and we cannot forget Punk Rock from Patti Smith, New York Dolls and Talking Heads.
I have really bad taste in movies, therefore I watch a lot of crappy films on Netflix. Even though I know they are awful, I can sometimes tell one is not worth watching because it is gotten less than two stars. That is no longer going to be the case in a few weeks.
According to Variety, the streaming service announced today that going from the 5 star system to a thumbs up/thumbs down one. Why the change? Netflix VP of Product Todd Yellin said after some testing, the thumbs did 200% better than the stars. I guess it is easier and a throwback to the late Sniskel and Ebert, and that is why people prefer it.
Do you give Netflix a thumbs up or a thumbs down for the change to their ratings system?
Yesterday, the World fell in love with 2 awwwwdorable kids who interrupted their dad’s BBC interview about South Korea impeaching their President, Park Geun-hye, and now their grandmother explains what happened.
Ellen Kelly told Daily Mail why her grandchildren, Marion 4, and James, 9 months, bursted into the room when they heard their dad talking to someone on the computer. She said, “Robert usually Skypes with us from his home office, which is where he did the interview.” Then she added, “The kids probably heard voices coming from the computer and assumed it was us…It was just hilarious.”
You see Ellen Kelly lives in Ohio, while her son, Robert E Kelly, and his wife, Jung-a Kim, live in South Korea, so that is the best and cheapest way for her to see her two grandkids. Since, kids love their grandparents, you can’t blame them for running in to talk to them. Which explains why Marion came in dancing, she was putting a little show for her grandma.
When it comes to Ellen, being the proud mom that she is, she told the British newspaper, “I just hope that he gains recognition for his expertise rather than for this, as great as it all is.” Sorry, he will always be remembered for this because he is this year’s biggest viral sensation and it is something the whole World has been craving and desiring.
Now, when it comes to the Kelly family, which talk shows do you think they will be on this week here in the States? I say Good Morning America, Today, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Therefore, look out for the family of four to make their American debut. And let’s hope it is just as memorable.
Ryan Gosling accepted a Goldene Kamera Award in Germany yesterday. Only one problem, it wasn’t him.
What? According to The Hollywood Reporter back in January two German comedians, Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf, created a fake booking agency and booked the Oscar nominee on the show. The Kameras were so excited to have him be part of their big night, they agreed to several demands like he wouldn’t walk the red carpet, would be surrounded by security the whole time and his appearance would not be announced before he came out to accept the award.
Then it was time for the big moment. Out walked Ludwig Lehner, a Munich Chef who has a slight resemblance to the actor and he said, “Good evening, I am Ryan Gosling. I dedicate this prize to Joko and Klaas.” It was then that everyone in the audience including Jane Fonda, Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell knew they were pranked. And they took it all in with shock and laughter. After the Oscargate, does anything surprise anymore at awards shows? Let’s hope so because that is what makes them memorable. It is the only reason why we still remember Moonlight beat out La La Land for Best Picture
When it comes Lehner, do you think he looks like The Notebook heartthrob? I think he looked more like Nicolas Cage with the huge side split than the hot actor. Still it is quite incredible that they were able to pull it off. My Alpine Bavarian Hat is off to them.
