Video: Geri Halliwell - Calling

I'm not a big ballad lover, but there are exceptions. One of them is "Calling", the 2001 single by former Spice Girls member Geri Halliwell. I'm not sure why, but there is something magical about the song, and I've always loved Geri's mysterious vocals. I also love the black-and-white video where she's got a Marilyn Monroe vibe going on.

The song is taken from Geri's second solo album "Scream If You Wanna Go Faster", available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.

Shirley Temple dead at 85

Another classic movie legend has left us. Shirley Temple was born in 1928 and became a huge child actress in the thirties, starring in movies such as "The Little Princess", "Bright Eyes", "Curly Top" and "Heidi". Shirley got an Academy Award in 1935 and a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 1960. She passed away on Monday, eighty-five years old.

Rest in peace, Shirley!

"No roses when love dies, so tell me no more lies"

New CD's in my collection: "So80s Presents Hubert Kah" by Hubert Kah, "Wild Child" by E.G. Daily and "The Album" by Tove Naess. But the highlight was the soundtrack to eighties soap "Lace", including the rare Deniece Williams track "No More Lies" from "Lace II". The soundtrack can be ordered from the composer's official website.

Video: Annie - Russian Kiss

Norwegian electropop princess Annie just gave us another reason to love her. Check out the video for her brand new single "Russian Kiss", a collaboration with Bjarne Melgaard and Richard X. I love the fact that she stands up for LGBT rights in Russia. The song is out now on iTunes and Spotify.

Check out this sexy promotion photo for the "Dallas" spinoff where hunky Josh Henderson is bathing in oil. Soap fans also know Josh for his roles on "Desperate Housewives" and "90210". I can't wait for season three of new "Dallas" to air here in Sweden!

Melrose Place - Amanda Woodward's bed

I'm so jealous of my friend who has a bed that looks like the one Amanda Woodward (Heather Locklear) had on my favorite soap "Melrose Place". I think I'll have to steal it from him. Or ask to share it with him ha ha!

Goodbye GetGlue, hello Trakt.tv

Maybe you remember that I used to recommend GetGlue, a social network where you could check into movies, TV-series, books, video games and music. However, GetGlue jumped the shark long ago, removing all the great things about the website, totally ignoring complaints for their users. And when you thought things could'nt get any worse, they went and changed the name to TVtag.

So from now on I use a social network called Trakt.tv instead. It's the perfect app for checking into movies and TV-series, while sharing it to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. I love it so if you give it a try, add me as a friend by visiting my profile. It's perfect for entertainment nerds!

"How's about coming back to my room for a little boom boom?"

New CD's in my collection: "Demi" by Demi Lovato, "Party" by Samantha Gilles, "La La" by La La, "Body Heat" by Body Heat, "Tattoo It" by Paul Lekakis and "Jaya" by Jaya.
