Giveaway: THE DARK PROPHECY

Let us know for a chance to win a prize package for Rick Riordan's The Dark Prophecy! We're just over a week away until the second installment of Rick Riordan's The Trials of Apollo series arrives, and FYA is giving away a prize pack that'll be music to your ears! Here's the offical word on The Dark Prophecy (which you might want to skip if you haven't read The Hidden Oracle yet): Zeus has punished his son Apollo—god of the sun, music, archery, poetry, and more—by casting him down to earth in the form of a gawky, acne-covered sixteen-year-old mortal named Lester.

The only way Apollo can reclaim his rightful place on Mount Olympus is by restoring several Oracles that have gone dark. 15 Best Broadway Showtunes For Workouts - Theatre Nerds.

Part of every great workout is having a playlist that keeps you energized and motivated. The next time you need go-to songs for the treadmill or weights, here are 15 tracks that will suit you perfectly: Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop-influenced sound in “Hamilton” is perfect for that motivational build during the tougher parts of working out.

This post is about The Hamilton Mixtape but it’s also about Ja Rule and Ashanti.

Ja Rule and Ashanti are smooth and flirty in 'Helpless' off The Hamilton Mixtape

Don’t stop reading. I assume you care more about Hamilton than you do about two washed-up stars from the early 2000s but I really care about both. When I was in high school and whichever artist was at the top of the charts was basically the most important person in my life, Ja Rule and Ashanti were the reigning chart-topping prince and princess of hip-hop/R&B.

Alessia Cara's MTV MVA 2016 with Troye Sivan.

Alessia Cara's MTV MVA 2016 with Troye Sivan

She’s 20 years old and she already oozes so much confidence and charisma it’s unfair. It’s unfair to her peers (she’s so real she makes Ariana Grande look like a Madame Tussauds wax figure) and it’s unfair to us grown ass adults who will never be as cool as she is. If you watched the VMA pre-show last night, you watched Alessia open the show with a stellar performance of her second hit song Wild Things. Alessa sometimes gets some flack, especially on Twitter, for looking “like she just rolled out of bed.” The only part of Alessia’s performance I didn’t like is that she had to share the stage with Troye Sivan, the first of many artists to make me feel old AF last night. Birdy - Wings. Celebrate - DIsplay Video 18s. Guest Squee: "My Dad Wrote a Porno" Podcast.

I was going to ease you guys into this review, but then I remembered that the Bitchery are not an audience that needs to be eased into these sorts of things.

Guest Squee: "My Dad Wrote a Porno" Podcast

So here’s the tl;dr right at the beginning: “My Dad Wrote a Porno” is a podcast where a British man, Jamie, and his friends James and Alice read aloud an erotic novella written by Jamie’s father. It goes about as well as you’d expect. Written under the penname Rocky Flinstone, Jamie and his friends make their way through all 14 chapters of Belinda Blinked; 1 A modern story of sex, erotica and passion.

Pop Style Opinionfest: “Grease Live!,” J Law Style, and “Zoolander 2”

Come now, kittens. Did you think we were going to let the extravaganza known as “Grease Live!” Pass without comment from us? Silly bitches. Of course we have things to say about it; LOTS of things, from the one cast member who came close to tanking the whole thing to the surprisingly effective performances of several other cast members to the bizarre use of the audience and the truly jaw-dropping camera work. Oh, and the songs and the dancing too. Then, we turn our loving and judgmental eyes toward Oscar nominee and frequent T Lo subject matter Miss Jennifer Lawrence; specifically, Miss Jennifer Lawrence’s red carpet style. And our conclusion is, despite her limited range, she’s kind of tough to pin down.

Even so, we picked two looks from the Dior spring 2016 couture collection as possible jumping off points for her Oscar gown. As per the uzh, it’s the typical T Lo opinion-spew. Thanks once again for submitting to our onslaught of bitchery, kittens! Fug Nation's Favorite Podcasts. Mimi’s Reign As The Queen Of Retail Christmas Music Has Come To An End…. 10 Korean indie music artists you need to hear now. I love Big Bang as much as any other K-pop fan (I just bought tickets to go see them on their world tour, I can’t wait!) , but there are some uber-talented musicians in Korea that are not yet household names in the States…yet. From underground hip hop artists to disco-influenced rockers, here are 10 musicians that are making some great tunes. 1) If you like Frank Ocean you'll like Zion T. Stuff You Should Be Watching (Or Listening To): Hamilton.

I know this is about “watching,” but with Hamilton the musical, that’s tricky. But you should definitely listen to it, and you should watch it if you have the geographical privilege and the money (or the kidney to sell to get the money, I guess?). I know, I know, EVERYONE (it seems) has been yelling about this, and I was hoping to hold off on listening to the music until I had a chance to see it, and then I saw what ticket prices were like for AUGUST and went, well fuck it and hit buy on iTunes, and haven’t turned it off since. How I haven’t been singing in the office is a testament to my name to my professionalism. Stuff You Should Be Watching (Or Listening To): Hamilton.
