(PCM) Thanks to the assistance of the police department in Dover, Delaware, pop superstar Taylor Swift was able to grant the wish of a cancer stricken teen who was unable to attend Swift’s sold-out concerts at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA this past weekend.

The Dover PD produced the following video about the life of 13-year old Victoria Marsh, who was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer late last year after discovering some pain in her ankle. The video has been viewed over 1.4 million times on Facebook, and eventually got the attention of Taylor Swift and her team, who made young Victoria’s wish come true.

Swift invited Victoria, who also suffers from Downs Syndrome, and two of her sisters to a private meet & greet back stage just prior to her amazing performance on the “1989 World Tour”. Unfortunately, Victoria’s doctors were not able to clear her to attend the actual concert, but she did receive an 8-hour pass for the hospital to attend the meet & greet with her favorite musician.

The Dover PD were overjoyed to help make Victoria’s dream come true and posted images of Victoria and her sisters meeting her idol on their official Facebook page. Such an amazing story, as we are so glad to hear that young Victoria’s #Swiftawish came true.

Review: Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck

Montage-Of-Heck

(PCM) I had the chance a couple days ago to watch the 2015 HBO documentary, “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” directed by Brett Morgan. The movie was interesting to say the least and sad all in the same time. I was a Nirvana fan like most kids growing up in the 90s. Kurt Cobain and the Nirvana machine helped change music. I take that statement back, because music is universal but Nirvana was a HUGE success, especially after the release of the 1991 album Nevermind. It put a lot of glam and party bands out to pasture and cleared the way for the gloomy Seattle weather that tortured Kurt Cobain’s soul. It seemed like a lot tortured his soul.

As a fan of Nirvana’s it was cool and unnerving to watch this documentary. It is literally what the title of the movie is …  a montage of different things. From home movies of Kurt growing up, to interviews with various family members and band mates, but there was this one guy that was missing. And that guy was a man named Dave Grohl, the lead singer of the band the Foo Fighters, and former drummer of Nirvana at the height of their success. I know Dave’s a busy guy and seems like a humble and nice guy in all the interviews I have seen, but it was odd to see him left out of the film.  We all know that Dave was busy with the making of Sonic Highways during the making of this film, but it would have been cool to see or hear from him, at least with some special commentary or something similar. He was a huge part of Kurt’s life on and off stage. They were friends and I felt that there was a void not having him in the film that could certainly be felt when watching.

Our favorite Yoko Ono of the 90s Courtney Love is in the film. She can be seen through old home movies and present day interviews. The present tense Courtney during interviews looked pretty and chill, as she gave us insight into the grunge gods mind and life style. The home videos portray her as both b**chy and incredibly drugged out.  Her main man was always standing right by her side, but some of the nudity that was shown in the home video footage was certainly questionable at best.

It was cool seeing Krist Novoselic talking about Kurt. He seems like a nice humble guy that told stories and insight about Kurt. They just seemed like a couple friends that grew into the biggest band in the world. Other Cobain family members were in the film and through the interviews laid out a map of what would form and empower Cobain’s life and music. And now let’s talk about drugs.

As the movie ends Kurt’s daughter Francis Bean is revealed as one of the producers. I have no idea what her life is like now, but as I watched the movie she is seen on old home movies as a little baby.  Kurt and Courtney are obliviously strung out on drugs as they are with her which was absolutely sickening. This not only infuriated me but I felt really bad for their daughter. For her to have to grow up without a parent (I know the feeling) and have to watch this old footage was probably a montage of emotion for her, and I have to commend her for helping to release this film.

Overall, a good flick and very, very sad. Kids don’t do drugs. Because even the biggest rock star burned out because of them. But he will never truly fade away.

Watch The Official Trailer For “Amy”

AMY_web(PCM) From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.

A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense – she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyze her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era.

Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Rihanna Makes History As Dior’s First Ever Black Campaign Star

Rihanna-Dior2

(PCM) Music and fashion icon Rihanna has made history by becoming the first woman of color to be chosen as the face of fashion designer Dior’s upcoming advertising campaign.

The news was announced that Rihanna would be the new face of Dior back in mid-March, however it was only within the last few days that her sexy and edgy advertisement photos began leaking out on the web.

The photos for Dior’s ad campaign were shot by photographer Steven Meisel for the company’s Secret Garden IV campaign and were taken at the incredibly elegant and historic palace of Versailles.

When the news about her campaign was first announced Rihanna revealed to MTV that it was “such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color. I think to be acknowledged by Dior means a lot, as a woman, to feel beautiful — to feel elegant and timeless.”

World Naked Gardening Day

May2aWorld Nude Gardening Day

(WNGD) On the first Saturday of May, find an opportunity to get naked and do some gardening. Do so alone, with friends, with family, with your gardening club, or with any other group collected for that purpose. Do it inside your house, in your back yard, on a hiking trail, at a city park, or on the streets. Stay private or go public. Make it a quiet time or make it a public splash. Just get naked and make your part of the botanical world a healthier and more attractive place.

All that’s involved is getting naked and making the world’s gardens–whatever their size, public or private–healthier and more attractive. WNGD has no political agenda, nor is it owned or organized by any one particular group. Naked individuals and groups are encouraged to adopt the day for themselves.

Events like WNGD can help develop a sense of community among people of every stripe. Taking part in something that is bigger than any one household, naturist group, or gardening club can move gardeners with an au naturel joie de vivre toward becoming a community. And in the case of WNGD, it’s fun, costs no money, runs no unwanted risk, reminds us of our tie to the natural world, and does something good for the environment.

The WNGD Calendar:

Saturday, September 9 – 2006, 2nd Annual
