Kings Of Leon

Alright, if you haven’t been under a rock, you’ve probably heard of these guys before. With hits like “Sex on Fire,” “Use Somebody” and “Notion,” who hasn’t heard of Kings of Leon? Not to mention nine top 40 singles (UK), two Brit Awards, three albums reaching the top 5 on the UK Albums Chart. Their new album, Only by the Night was the Nashville based band’s claim to fame in the US. They took home three Grammy awards this year, including Record of the Year, Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and Best Rock Song for “Use Somebody.” So yeah,

Ooo, yes. Get as close to the camera as you want.

they’re pretty successful. And it’s no surprise! Lead singer Caleb Followill has arguably the most unique voice in modern rock and roll. Their ever-evolving bluesy/southern rock/alternative sound is refreshing. Also refreshing are the bands’ strong family roots (duh, the band members are three brothers and their cousin). Yes, among all their success, the guys are as humble as ever. They still take plenty of time out to be with their family and their girls, and still lead relatively normal lives.

While the new album is fantastic and by all means a work of art, what a lot of people don’t realize is that they already had a huge body of work, including Aha Shake Heartbreak, Because of the Times and Youth and Young manhood, all of which personally blow my mind. The sound changes a bit the farther back  you go in their albums, and you can really see how much they’ve changed over the years. Of course, any change in sound gets criticized by long time fans, and KoL have gotten flack from theirs, but to me the guys are just exploring their sound, and I couldn’t love them any more.

Matt Bomer

Hi, all. I have recently discovered the USA show White Collar. USA has a history of awesome shows, such as Monk, Burn Notice, In Plain Sight, and Psych. White Collar is no exception. I was watching Monk, and after it ended White Collar came on. At first, I was going to change the Channel. That is, until I saw this devilishly good-looking creature…

Hellooooo, hottie.

That big ball of cute is be Matthew Bomer, and needless to say, he captured my attention and I ended up watching the show, which also happened to  be the first episode.  The second and third episodes showed after that and I was sucked into the show, not just by the obvious eye candy, but by it’s interesting plot and characters. Matt plays Neal Caffrey, an extremely intelligent con-man who escapes from prison with only four months left on his sentence to find his ex-girlfriend, who he believes is in trouble. When he is recaptured, he strikes up a deal with agent Burke to work for the FBI and help catch other criminals in exchange for his freedom (well, he wears an ankle bracelet, but it’s better than jail) and the rest is history. Season two of the show premiers this summer, so be sure to look for it!

You might also recognize Matt from his part as a reoccurring character (Bryce Larkin) on the  TV show “Chuck” or from “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.”  You can find his complete filmography  at IMBD. But for now, enjoy the shirtless wonder below.

Ooo la la

You’re welcome.
