Golden Globe Music Nominees
Every year, we look forward to seeing which of our favorite artists will walk away with a coveted Golden Globe. With so many amazing movies this year (and even more flops), we were excited that a few of our favorites were nominated:
- John Willliams, “War Horse”
- Howard Shore, “Hugo”
- Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”
- Ludovic Bource, “The Artist”
- Abel Korzeniowski, “W.E.”
Our votes are going towards Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and Howard Shore. We loved “Hugo” and the music played such a powerful role. Of course, we’re excited to see “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and are big fans of Reznor and Ross. Who will you be rooting for this Golden Globe season?
Glee Supports High School Music Departments
The TV show Glee recently hosted a video contest entitled “Glee – Give A Note.” Entrants were asked to submit a two-minute video expressing their school’s need for help in supporting their music department. The campaign awarded a total of $1 million in grants, ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. Many schools around the nation entered back in October and winners have been announced. Phil Campbell Elementary and High schools won both a $50,000 grand prize (High School) and $25,000 first prize (Elementary) for their videos. Watch the Phil Campbell High School Band video here, and watch the Elementary school’s video here. Both videos are inspirational, showing the destruction and devastation that both school faced after a tornado went through. To read more about the Phil Campbell schools, read the article here.
Rock til we quake!
Rock concerts are notorious for being an all-out fantastic time – you’ve got your moshers, your jumpers and your screamers. What happens when a concert’s fan-goers rock-out so hard that they produce earthquake seismographs? Well, such is the case at a recent Foo Fighters concert in Auckland, New Zealand. Seismologists from Geonet Blog noticed the shaky ground at the concert. “The concert vibrations were recorded as a semi continuous harmonic signal with a peak osculation of 3Hz, i.e. the ground was shaking 3 times per second in a nice rhythmic motion,” the blog noted.With 50,000 fans in attendance, it’s no surprise that so many feet produced such a feat (we know, bad pun). Have you been to an event that produced something like this? Or maybe your convinced it should have? Share with us in the comments below.
