When it comes to music, Maggie Rose doesn’t let other things define her — not prevailing trends, not marketing labels, not even her own past.

Maggie Rose defines herself.

A woman of exceptional versatility and variety, the Nashville-based artist draws from the many musical genres at play in the city — a love of storytelling and substantive lyrics learned from country music, an affinity for finely crafted pop production, R&B’s commitment to an irresistible groove. Familiar elements all, but Maggie Rose combines them in a singular way. It’s always honest, always her.

Maggie Rose’s new tracks “Just Getting By” and “Pull You Through” show a powerhouse singer in complete command not only of her live-in-the-studio recording sessions but also of her creative and prolific career. Recording in Nashville with an 11-piece band, Maggie’s making the most exciting music of her life as she taps into a soulful country side in the vein of Linda Ronstadt and Adele.

Maggie envisioned a unique level of rawness for these sessions, an approach to recording she had never taken before. Rather than building the tracks through overdubs, she wanted all the players — the rhythm section, the guitarists, the vocalists — in one place together, taking cues from each other and responding in the moment. Her band consists not of the city’s studio talent but of members of The Morrison Brothers Band and Them Vibes, as well as friends from Nashville’s music scene who are plenty talented in their own right and have played with Kelly Clarkson, Brothers Osborne, Steven Tyler and others. The sound springs from the shared experiences of a community.

Maggie’s entire career has prepared her for this moment. She’s just now reaching a point where she can fully express the music she always has held inside herself. “I have a level of confidence now that’s allowing me to make my music the way I want,” she says. “I have been waiting to seize this opportunity and I didn’t even know it.”

“Just Getting By” and “Pull You Through” encompass the lifetime of a relationship. “Just Getting By,” which Maggie — a newlywed — wrote in the wake an argument with her husband, shows a couple wrestling to establish a unified identity. “It’s not simply about the feeling of falling head over heels in love or of being in an argument, it’s about profound commitment to one another,” Maggie says. “It’s about having hope and believing in yourselves. It’s kind of romantic that we’re in hustle mode as much as we are. I feel like I’ll look back on this time of my life, and it will seem dreamy to me.”

Maggie wrote “Pull You Through”, a soulful ballad, while she was engaged, imagining years into her future — and the implication of the phrase “’til death do us part.” “You grow up your whole life knowing that’s part of the wedding ceremony, but to hear it and realize its gravity is overwhelming,” she says.

Shortly after she wrote the song, Maggie’s grandparents, married for 66 years, died seven weeks apart. “Suddenly, these people who had been together for decades were gone,” she says. “In retrospect, their passing made the song mean that much more to me, as I understand more about what committing your life to someone looks like.”

The new tracks come just months after Maggie’s acclaimed ‘Dreams > Dollars’ EP. In 2016, CMT named Maggie one of its Next Women of Country, and this year she has toured with Martina McBride and opened dates on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul tour. Taken with recent releases ‘Dreams > Dollars’ and ‘The Variety Show Vol. 1,’ “Just Getting By” and “Pull You Through” reveal a singer crafting a sound as varied and nuanced as her musical interests. “It’s nice to be able to feed my creative spirit as often as I want and not be a one-dimensional artist,” she says.

Black Panther already the biggest seller of the advance Imax tickets of any Marvel title.

Black Panther” is four days away from its wide release, and has already become the biggest seller of advance Imax tickets of any Marvel title, Imax Entertainment CEO Greg Foster told Variety on Monday.

“We have a movie that has clearly captured the zeitgeist,” Foster said. “Pre-sales are the surest way to see how momentum is going: The momentum is gathering steam as opposed to slowing down.”

With each passing week, box office estimates for the film’s opening weekend have climbed, reaching more than $150 million on Monday. The film could potentially have the largest February opening weekend ever, beating out “Deadpool,” which opened in February 2016 to a weekend box office total of $152 million.


Foster declined to provide specific figures on pre-sales, but said advanced Imax tickets for the film do not appear to have peaked yet.



“A movie often peaks 10 days before it opens,” he said. “This movie feels like it’s going to peak the day it opens. It’s remarkable.”

Additionally, the film is attracting audiences all across the country. “There are no borders on this. The momentum is continuing on both coasts and in the middle; in red states and in blue states. In giant cities and smaller suburbs.”

The Marvel movie, which so far has a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

Black Panther” is directed by Ryan Coogler, based on a screenplay written by Coogler and Joe Robert Cole.

Keep your dogs safe and happy on the 4th!

Posted on: July 4th, 2017 by marisa

This article is lovingly borrowed from the amazing site Pet MD:


Like many Americans, you may be planning to have a festive Fourth of July. Along with barbeques and day at the beach, no July holiday celebration would be complete without enjoying the fireworks that celebrate the birth of our nation.


Perhaps you are considering staying at home and planning a get-together with friends and family. Or, you may want to go check out your local professional fireworks display. While putting the finishing touches on your planned celebration, take a moment to consider your pets.


Unlike people, pets don’t associate the noise, flashes, and burning smell of pyrotechnics with celebrations. Pets are terrified of fireworks, and often panic at the loud whizzes and bangs they produce.


Because of this, the American Humane Association reports that July 5 is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters. Why? In a 2005 press release the Indiana Proactive Animal Welfare, Inc. (PAW) stated that animal shelters the day after Fourth of July are “inundated with pets that panicked at the noise of firecrackers and fled into the night, winding up lost, injured or killed.”


Both the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and PAW have listed ways you can prevent your holiday celebration from turning into a tragedy. Here are 10 tips on how to keep your pet from panicking this Fourth of July weekend.


10. Keep your Pet Indoors at All Times!


It may seem obvious, but even if your pet is used to being outside, the resulting panic caused by fireworks or other loud noises may make them break their restraint or jump a fence in a terrified attempt to find safety.


9. Don’t Put Insect Repellant on Your Pet that isn’t Specifically for Pet Use


The same tip applies to applying “people” sunscreen on your pet. What isn’t toxic to humans can be toxic to animals. The ASPCA lists the poisonous effects of sunscreen on your pet as, “…drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy.” DEET, a common insecticide, may cause neurological issues.


8. Alcoholic Drinks Poison Pets


If your pet drinks alcohol, they can become dangerously intoxicated, go into a coma, or in severe cases, die from respiratory failure. Yes, even beer is toxic; fermented hops and ethanol are poisonous to dogs and cats.


7. Going to a Fireworks Display? Leave Your Pet at Home


The safest place for your pet is at home, not in a crowded, unfamiliar and noisy place. The combination of too many people and loud fireworks will make your beloved pet freak out and desperately seek shelter. Locking them in the car is also not an option; your pet may suffer brain damage and heat stroke.


6. Have Your Pet Properly Identified


If your pet manages to break loose and become lost, without proper identification it will be that much harder to get them back. Consider fitting your pet with microchip identification, ID tags with their name and your phone number, or both. It is also a good idea to have a recent picture of your pets in case you have to put up signs.



5. Keep Your Pet Away from Glow Jewelry


It might look cute, but your pet could chew up and swallow the plastic adornments. The ASPCA states that while not highly toxic, “excessive drooling and gastrointestinal irritation could still result from ingestions, and intestinal blockage could occur from swallowing large pieces of the plastic containers.”


4. NEVER Use Fireworks Around Pets


While lit fireworks can pose a danger to curious pets and potentially result in severe burns and/or trauma to the face and paws, even unused fireworks can be hazardous. Some fireworks contain potentially toxic substances such as arsenic, potassium nitrate, and other heavy metals.


3. Don’t Give Your Pet “Table Food”


If you are having a backyard barbeque, you may be tempted to slip some snacks to your pet. But like beer and chocolate, there are other festive foods that could harm your pet. Onions, coffee, avocado, grapes & raisins, salt and yeast dough are all possible hazards for dogs and cats.


2. Lighter Fluid and Matches Are Harmful to Pets.


The ASPCA lists chlorates as a harmful chemical substance found in some matches that, if ingested, can cause your pet difficulty in breathing, damage blood cells or even cause kidney disease. If exposed to lighter fluid, your pet may sustain skin irritation on contact, respiratory problems if inhaled, and gastric problems if ingested.


1. Citronella Insect Control Products Harm Pets, Too.


Oils, candles, insect coils and other citronella-based repellants are irritating toxins to pets, according to the ASPCA. The result of inhalation can cause severe respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia, and ingestion can harm your pet’s nervous system.




The safest and best bet for celebrating this Fourth of July with your pets is to exclude them from holiday festivities, at least this time around. Instead, find a safe, secure spot in the home for your pets while you go out and enjoy the loud bangs, bright lights and spectator fun. Your pets will appreciate the quiet a lot more than you’ll enjoy the noise.

Key of Key and Peele going through divorce.

Posted on: March 1st, 2017 by Candy

Keegan-Michael Key‘s estranged wife says his ending of their 17-year marriage was so unexpected, it’s causing her serious health problems … in addition to leaving her in financial ruin.

Cynthia Blaise say she’s suffering from severe depression, anxiety, hair and weight loss and PTSD … according to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ. She says she’s been taking 5 different meds since the 2015 divorce filing.

Blaise says she financially supported him early in their marriage with her work as a Hollywood dialect coach — and even when his career took off, she was at his beck and call.

She says Key made way more than her in the final years of their marriage — including a $1.2 mil Toyota endorsement deal — but she’s fallen on financial hardship since the split … due to giving up her career.

We’ve reached to Michael’s rep, no word back. Blaise wants spousal support, a fair split of assets and attorney fees.
