Magneta Lane - Witchrock


Magneta Lane is an all female band with a punk-like sound. In the style of Joan Jett, Chrissie Hynde, and Debbie Harry, these ladies know how to rock out and are doing so on their new album, Witchrock, is released on February 12.

Magneta Lane was formed in Toronto in 2003. Paper Bag records issued their first release, The Constant Lover, in 2004.

After much touring in Canada and the United States, the band, at a very young age, became slightly burnt out. The girls then got a new manager and a chance meeting with some powerful music executives, which led to renewed creative energies. Which brings us back to Witchrock.

 I was sent these four tracks from the album to listen to. I had not heard of Magneta Lane before so was excited to learn of local talent. 
 I was blown away from the first track I played, Burn. Quickly I realized this was my kind of music, being the HUGE punk fan that I am. The fast beat and drumming in the background reminded me of a female version of The Strokes. Listening to the other tracks, my opinion didn't sway but grew stronger. I hear the punk inspiration clearly and yet in a modern way. 
 So in the end I have to admit I am a new fan. I look forward to these ladies putting out more music and touring again. They are definitely up my alley!

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
