Thrilled to learn today that Rami Malek has been nominated for a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in the Bohemian Rhapsody movie.
The movie is now the highest-earning music biopic of all time - and still earning.
I’ve seen it twice and will probably go once more before New Year’s.
Two things blew my mind.
1. Rami Malek was so believable as Freddie Mercury, you would literally forget that you weren’t watching Freddie himself.
2. The costumes worn by everyone in the film were so authentic, you remembered seeing the band wearing them in live footage and photographs you’ve seen so many times over the years.
In my opinion, Rami Malek and costume designer Julian Day both deserve Oscar Awards for their work on this film.
I rest my case with photos of Queen’s actual costumes. SEE THEM HERE.
You know when you hear a song that’s so hysterical that you just have to play it for all your friends?
Well that’s about to happen.
Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is seeing a resurgence due to the film of the same name.
Imagine if it was a Christmas song.
Check out a Yuletide take on the tune below.
Play the whole thing and I guarantee you’ll be laughing out loud.
Also below watch Robert Plant run through an Elvis holiday tune.
Plus check out “Winter Wonderland” done to a familiar tune.
“Springsteen On Broadway” is an extremely powerful show that Bruce has been doing since October 2017.
The run of shows has been extended twice.
It features Springsteen telling stories and performing songs either on acoustic guitar or on piano.
He is joined by his wife to sing with him on a couple tunes each night.
I saw the show back in January and it knocked me out.
I always described a Springsteen concert as taking me to a certain time and place in my life.
I describe this show as encompassing my entire life.
Watch the trailer below and then catch the entire show starting December 16th on Netflix.

On November 23rd Robert Plant attended the birthday party for his ex-wife Maureen.
There happened to be a live band at the party.
Robert decided to join the band to have a little fun.
Together they ran through a few Elvis tunes, “One Night With You”, “Little Sister” and “A Big Hunk O’ Love”.
Watch the performances below.
October 30th 1978 “WKRP In Cincinnati” aired a Thanksgiving themed episode.
It was titled “Turkeys Away”.
It easily has to be the funniest Thanksgiving TV show ever.
Station manager Arthur “Big Guy” Carlson has a great idea to push turkeys out of a helicopter.
Of course the problem can be summed up in the classic line from the episode “As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly”.
One of the craziest things about this is that it was based on an actual radio station’s promo event gone awry.
Watch the show for yourself below and have a great Thanksgiving!!!
If you still haven’t gotten around to seeing the new Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” put that on your holiday weekend to-do list!
There’s a lot of talk about Rami Malek and an Oscar for this role and there’s good reason for it! Take a look at this montage of clips of him talking about Freddie and the movie... it’ll make you like him even more!
The movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a big hit.
A lot of people are raving about the job Rami Malek did playing Freddie Mercury.
Exactly how good of a job did he do?
See for yourself.
The video below shows Freddie’s actual performance with Queen at Live Aid side by side with the filming of that scene from the movie.
I must say, it is incredible.
Don’t ask me what it takes like. I just heard of this 5 minutes ago!
But after watching the video, I kinda wanna do the experiment.
I did notice there is one thing the reviewer did not say about a Watermelon Ham...
Did you notice that, too?
