Larry King Dies

Posted on 23 January 2021 by Brian Walsh

Larry King the award-winning TV and radio host who became a household name with his long-running CNN show Larry King Live, died Saturday morning at the age of 87.
“With profound sadness, Ora Media announces the death of our co-founder, host, and friend Larry King, who passed away this morning at age 87 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles,” King’s official Twitter announced Saturday morning. No cause of death was provided, but King’s death came weeks after it was revealed that the 87-year-old host was battling coronavirus.
“For 63 years and across the platforms of radio, television and digital media, Larry’s many thousands of interviews, awards, and global acclaim stand as a testament to his unique and lasting talent as a broadcaster. Additionally, while it was his name appearing in the shows’ titles, Larry always viewed his interview subjects as the true stars of his programs, and himself as merely an unbiased conduit between the guest and audience. Whether he was interviewing a U.S. president, foreign leader, celebrity, scandal-ridden personage, or an everyman, Larry liked to ask short, direct, and uncomplicated questions. He believed concise questions usually provided the best answers, and he was not wrong in that belief.”

Taylor Swift

Posted on 31 December 2020 by Brian Walsh

Taylor Swift inadvertently created a viral TikTok challenge through one of her new songs.

TikTok and other social media platforms have created the “Hometown Hunni Challenge” or the “Text Your Ex Challenge” that’s based around the lyrics from the “Lover” singer’s new song.

Swift debuted her ninth studio album, Evermore, earlier this year. The record features a song entitled, “Tis the Damn Season” which features a story of a person going back to their hometown during the holidays and reconnecting with an old flame.

“So we could call it even / You could call me babe for the weekend / ‘Tis the damn season, write this down / I’m stayin’ at my parents’ house / And the road not taken looks real good now / And it always leads to you in my hometown,’ Swift sings on the track.

Swifties have now taken it upon themselves to text Swift’s lyrics to their exes and screenshot their responses. TikTok is flooded with videos of screenshots and reactions from exes all across the globe.

Get in on the challenge yourself! Find the sound here and use the hashtags: #textyourex #tisthedamnseason and #hometownhunni.

Hopefully, none of the conversations end in “Bad Blood,” and maybe even a “Love Story” is created from the challenge. Just don’t hold Swift responsible for your post-holiday quarantine judgment.

Beatles Documentary

Posted on 27 December 2020 by Brian Walsh

Acclaimed director Peter Jackson has shared a sneak peek at the half-done Beatles documentary that he is currently working on.

Titled The Beatles: Get Back, the film contains snippets from over 56 hours worth of never-before-seen footage and chronicles the time period between 1969 and ’70, over which the band eventually broke up and went their separate ways.

The film builds on Let It Be, the 1970 musical/documentary that “captures the writing and recording of their penultimate album” of the same name.

In a recent press release, Ringo Starr shared that the former painted a rather bleary picture of that time when, in reality, “there were hours and hours of us just laughing and playing music, not at all like the version that came out.”

The film is slated to come out on August 27, 2021.
