Favourite music sites/applications

These are my favourite music related websites and applications. :)

iTunes

Great for buying/downloading and listening to music. Once you download iTunes onto your computer you can buy music from the iTunes store (and listen to samples before you buy) and also upload your own music to iTunes. Visit the site to download it.

Amazon

This online shop is good for buying music, as well as books, video games and lots of other things. You can also listen to samples on Amazon. They don't always let you listen to samples on the UK site, so I sometimes go to the American and German sites instead when I want to hear album snippets.

 HMV

Website for the CD, DVD and game shop. You can get good deals on here and also listen to music samples for some CDs.


Spotify

This is an application that you download to your computer and then you can listen to music for free. The account I have is Spotify Open (the free one) and you can also get paid accounts, Unlimited and Premium, which cost £4.99 and £9.99 per mo…

Another Fright Night remake trailer

The original trailer I posted was removed from Youtube by the user, so here's another one:



It says "Full Movie" but it's just a trailer and to watch the full film, you've got to go to a website. I'd rather wait for it to come out officially though, lol. This one shows more  scenes than the other one. What I can say about the remake so far is that it just doesn't have the atmosphere of the original! But then I don't suppose it would really, lol. Jerry seems a bit more menacing in this version. I'll post more info about the remake when it's available.

Edit 28/5/11: This trailer has been removed too!

More Vampire Films

So this is my follow up post to the Top 10 Vampire Films one. Here I'm going to write about some films I haven't already mentioned. They aren't in any particular order. Please note that this post contains spoilers! Unless otherwise stated, the videos are trailers.

Near Dark (1987)

Farm boy Caleb (played by Adrian Pasdar) lives in the American Midwest with his dad and little sister Sarah. One night while out with his friends, he meets a girl named Mae (Jenny Wright) who he is attracted to. They go off together but before long Mae becomes desperate to get home before dawn. Caleb thinks that she is probably worried that her dad will find out she's been out all night, so he messes around by stopping the car. He and Mae kiss but all of a sudden she bites him, then gets out of the car and runs away. Unable to start the vehicle again, Caleb attempts to walk home through the fields but grows increasingly ill and starts to burn as the sun rises! As he is struggling along, a bla…

Teen Mom 2

Teen Mom 2 just started in the UK. For those who don't know, Teen Mom is a spin off series from the TV show 16 and Pregnant, which (as I'm sure you can guess, lol) is about pregnant teenagers. There is also a series called Teen Mom which follows the lives of four teenagers from the first series of 16 and Pregnant, Maci, Farrah, Catelynn and Amber. Teen Mom 2 is about four more girls, Leah, Chelsea, Kailyn and Jenelle. Here is some info about the girls (based on the series current showing in the UK):

Leah Messer 

Has twins Aliana and Aleeah with Corey Simms. She and Corey had only been together for a little while when Leah got pregnant. At the end of their 16 and Pregnant episode they broke up because Leah cheated on Corey with her ex-boyfriend Robbie. At the beginning of Teen Mom 2 Leah wants Corey back. In last week's episode, Leah is concerned because Ali is developing slower than Aleeah and has taken her to the hospital.

Chelsea Houska

Has daughter Aubree with ex-boyfrien…
