Who is HIGHLIGHT???
Hey guys. So for a while now there has been talk about Highlight debuting. Most people have no idea who highlight is, how many members are in the group, their ages, what they look like etc. One things for certain............people have been passing on Legendary rookie group..........so you gotta wonder. How good is this group? What do they sound like? Do I know them?..................Well maybe.................possibly...............................ummmmmmmm YES! Do these five guys look familiar? Do you guys remember the band formerly known as Beast/B2St??? http://youtu.be/ZAzWT8mRoR0 http://youtu.be/8JQJ83aFNo8 http://youtu.be/9JWkOTkhpf4 https://youtu.be/PrKvv4o0Ofs ......oh yeah but there was like another right? A sixth member..............Yes there was. Jang Hyunseung. Also apart of the duo Troublemaker. -------------------------- QUICK RUN THROUGH Sadly that sixth member of Beast departed and the explanation we got was differences in music ideas or so. Shortly after this the contracts for all six Beast members and Cube expired. This gave way to other possibilities and the remaining members decided to leave Cube and start their own label. (Around Us) Jang Hyunseung decided to stay and do another contract with Cube. Now that the five had left there was still an issue with the Beast name. Cube had the rights to that name for more years meaning the boys could not promote under that name since they had left Cube. After intense thinking and talking back and forth with Cube the boys decided to give up on the Beast name for the moment and promote under a new name........dundundunduuuuun HIGHLIGHT was born. This name is a song title from the past album. Alrighty now to introduce you to each member of HIGHLIGHT. DO YOU KNOW THEM? Well here are the links for the cards that lead to each member.

3 Trendy Boho Looks Perfect For Festival Season
Festival season is upon us. Whether your going to Coachella, Governor's Island Ball or just festival fashion, it's necessary that you dress the part. While festivals are an integral part of every fashion and music lovers spring and summer, the fashion is what really stands out. When you think of festivals the first thing that usually comes to mind is bohemian. Boho chic is a huge fashion staple at festivals. You don't have to go all out to give out some serious boho vibes. You can easily rock some distressed shorts and an oversized tee shirt with combat boots or a crochet dress and a wide brim hat and easily be considered boho. If you're looking for a bit of boho-spiration this season, keep scrolling below to see the three festival looks that will help you get your true boho style down packed. Look #1: This look is chic and super comfortable. A crop top and a maxi skirt, it doesn't get much better. Add a few accessories and you're good to go. Look #2: This look is a bit more casual and laid back. Because everyone loves oversized sweaters and distressed denim. Oh, yeah. Can't forget the Dr. Martens. A serious festival staple. Look #3: If you're a true free spirit, this look in particular you will more so gravitate towards. The matching boots, hat and bag in contrast with the white crochet dress go together perfectly to give you an effortless flower child look. Which look would be your go-to festival look?

Top 10 Alternative Albums Of 2015
2015 was a huge year for Alternative music. We had comebacks, break-ups and killer releases. Music is the missing link between us and the rest of the world. It expresses our deepest fears, joys and triumphs. 2015 was the year of great comebacks, massive hooks and surprise collaborations. Alternative music is always surprising and brilliant. Here are my picks for the top 10 Alternative Albums of 2015. 10. Let It Reign - Carl Barat and The Jackals One of the most underrated indie releases of this year, Let It Reign is a stomper from start to finish. Showcasing the anger and madness Barat became famous for, while also coming off as an extremely nuanced look back at wilder days, this album is perfect for anyone going through the trenches. I took a lot of comfort in these songs, because it was like someone was singing my sorrow back to me. This album is ideal for front to back listening. No skips needed. Even Carl Barat himself liked my sentiments on this record. YES for the ReTweet! (Scroll right to see!) Essential Listens: "March of the Idle", "A Storm Is Coming", "Victory Gin" 9. Badlands - Halsey If you put Sia, Lorde and Debby Harry into a blender, out comes Halsey. Badass, unique and fresh, her style and honesty injected pop and alternative with some much needed perspective. I remember listening to the single "New Americana" while I lived in Brooklyn, New York this summer. I'll never forget the memories associated with it. That's how you know a song or album is good. You can remember the exact time you listened to those tracks, and they transport you to that place. Her debut was one of the most pleasant surprises of the year. We've got a lot to look forward to. Essential Listens: "New Americana", "Ghost", " 8. Wolf Alice - My Love Is Cool Teenage reckless abandon is alive and well with Wolf Alice's "My Love Is Cool". Marketed and revered as grunge's next incarnation. After years of relentless touring without a full-length release there was a lot of anticipation leading up to the full length release. We were not disappointed. Unapologetic and taylor made for the festival circuit, Wolf Alice, is yet another UK indie act with the potential to take over the world. Essential Listens: "Lisbon", "Soapy Water" 7. Sound & Color -Alabama Shakes No voice rocked the world in 2105 like Brittany Howard's. Sometimes when you hear something so profound and unique, it just changes things. We felt the pain, joy and madness of this album through each note she sang. It doesn't hurt that this band is solid as a rock live, and even sounds better than the records. Alabama Shakes were relatively unknown prior to this year's release, and hopefully their star will keep rising, so we can get a little bit more of that home grown, soul-rock and roll. Essential Listens: "Future People", "Don't Want To Fight", "Sound & Color" 6. Blur - The Magic Whip 2015 was really the year that Britrock came back. I mean four British bands made this list, and for good reason. Blur dropped off the map after a festival cancellation in 2013, but came back with magic to spare with 2015's "The Magic Whip". More fun and functional than most albums of this year, the album was a great comeback for one of Britain's most revered bands. Now, if only Oasis could give us an album like this. We'd be set. Essential Listens: "I Broadcast", "Ghost Ship", "Go Out" 5. Grimes - Art Angel Much like Halsey, Grimes turned pop music on its head this year. Bucking the notion that women are merely pawns in the grand scheme of pop music, Grimes is a testament to female empowerment. Catchy hooks, beats dripping with style and hipster-cred coupled with honest and provocative lyrics create one of my favorite albums of the year. Trust me, after a few listens you'll be questioning everything. Essential Listens: "Flesh Without Blood", "Artangels", "California" 4. American Beauty / American Psycho - Fall Out Boy A lot of hardcore fans didn't like this record. Whatever the reason, change in sound, more electronic vibes, samples, who knows. I on the other hand rocked out to this thing all year long. With quintessential tracks ranging from bittersweet (Fourth of July), to party ready (American Beauty/American Psycho, to haunting (Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC)), this album has something for everyone. If you're willing to give something new a chance, evolution is always good for rock and roll. Essential Listens: "Centuries", "Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC), "Jet Pack Blues", "The Kids Aren't Alright" 3. Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots I never really gave Twenty-One Pilots a chance. For some reason I aligned them with 5 Seconds of Summer as a virtually commercial outfit with little to no artistry involved. But, I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to 2015's Blurryface, an honest, cold, often harsh look at post-adolescence and the emptiness that often comes with realizing that you're an adult. It hit home. I highly recommend this album for anyone coping with their doomed youth. Essential Listens: "Stressed Out", "Ride", "Fairly Local" 2. The Desired Effect - Brandon Flowers The Killers frontman took us back to the 80's with his second solo effort, The Desired Effect. It's one of those albums you can listen to all day and not even realize it. Diverse and surprising, Flowers generates all sorts of musical stylings from the Robert Palmer-esque "Lonely Town" to the rhythmic departure of "Can't Deny My Love", all the way to the heartland-rock inspired "Dreams Come True" we see the range of the singer's influences like never before. A true masterpiece in the art of pop music, The Desired Effect creates a soundscape on its own level. Retro, fabulous and honest, this is a top recommendation from 2015. Essential Listens: "Dreams Come True", "Lonely Town", "Can't Deny My Love", "Digging Up The Heart" 1. Anthems For Doomed Youth - The Libertines Of course the most unlikely and epic comeback of the year has to top my list. It's no secret that The Libertines are a band that changed my life. Rooted in dirty indie rock, with all the history of an epic novel, this album has been a long time coming, and a long shot to happen. After the messy break up of Britain's most exciting band, most thought the Libs would never come back. Surprise. 2015 was the year everything changed. With irreverent new tracks chronicling the struggles of history (Fame and Fortune), and old favorites finally seeing the light of day (You're My Waterloo) Anthems For Doomed Youth changed the lives of Libertines everywhere. Essential Listens: "Gunga Din", "Heart of the Matter", "You're My Waterloo", "Iceman" What were your favorite albums this year? Make sure to talk about them in the Alternative-Rock community! A totally bitchin' place for all things alternative.
Why Are These Kids At A Rave?
The 1990s were a simpler time - at least in the realm of kid birthday parties. You went out for laser tag or group-watched a movie. You had slumber parties or rented the 'party room' at your local roller rink. However, sometime between then and now, Skrillex happened - which brings us to the latest trend in children's birthday parties - KIDDIE RAVES. Introducing CirKiz - it's like that neon EDM-packed post-apocalypse you used to go to in college. But with safer goodie bags. You got your wildin' out, glowstick-wielding white bros. Guy with a cool haircut working the 1's and 2's. The person who's been going hard on fruit punch all night. And the one in the corner, currently regretting the fruit punch. CirKiz was created by some NYC-based, EDM-loving parents - Jesse Sprague and Jenny Song - who wanted to create a special place "where families can listen and dance to DJs, see live performances, and experience a nightclub environment in a safe, controlled daytime setting." Available in both New York and London, parents can choose one of several popular warehouse venues and trendy nightclubs for their CirKiz-sponsored event. One such venue, I was surprised to learn, is Cielo, a New York spot known for hosting some pretty 'high-brow' house and trance DJs. In fact, that's exactly where Jesse and Jenny first came up with their Cirkiz idea: "We had [our son's] 1st birthday party at Cielo. We invited friends with kids and friends without. It was so much fun for everyone we decided to make it an annual event but in different clubs. The message we got from all our friends was clear and consistent: 'You should do this professionally and turn it into a business... I'd pay to go.' So after years of just doing it for fun, we finally got our act together and did exactly that." Currently, CirKiz is hosting a 'winter series' of raves at NYC's Space Ibiza on Sundays, where ticket prices range from $15 - 20 per person. You can check out more details at their official website or you can be like me and just stare at these pictures, feeling equal parts confused and disturbed. With that being said: What do you guys think? Is combining kids and rave culture a good idea or bad idea? Let me know in the comments below. (Also shout-out to the LED robot in this picture up here. For a part-time job, that's - admittedly - rad as hell.)
Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world. Director Pete Docter said they wanted the film to remain complex and emotional while making sense with the foreign audience's culture. Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', “We learned that some of our content wouldn’t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, ‘What’s gross to you?’ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.” In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,“We offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that they’d be hockey fans.” Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying ‘it’s a shortcut.’ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.” Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?
