Adele! A Smart “Hello”!

7 Nov

  
Adele transcends everything.  4 years waiting to hear from her and she gives a wonderful sneak peak of what’s in store, by releasing the first single off of her Adele 25 project!

“Hello” has become the first song to sell one million tracks in a week, the power of download. The beautiful, heart-wrenching ballad also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart., where in a few weeks it will be available on Nov. 20.

YouTube is already filled with videos of fans singing the songs and a few artists already doing covers! 

The Nov. 20 date has even caused some artists to change their album release dates, for the anticipated sales are going to go through the roof.  30 million sold from her last project, so the question is which way is Adele and her management going to go? 

Allow the “25” album stream online or the old fashion way; releasing the CD? Anyway you look at it, she is going to win!  By releasing the single without any heads up; was genius!!  A smart young woman she is!

Adele also looks so amazing in the “Hello” in the monochrome video, I’d analyzed each of the scenes, the set design and how wonderfully I will from now on admire wind blowing!   The vocals are amazing and the chorus is so heart felt, relatable.

25 is about knowing who I’ve become, without realizing it! I’m sorry it took so long, but you know life happened.

Fashionably, women will be looking for a faux fur coat, a simple plaid shirt and the longest eyelashes to put on!  For this beautiful gal makes you want to just try! 

So you know, Adele will be live in NYC on Nov. 17 and a TV debut of her smash hit “Hello” will air as part of an hour-long BBC special on Nov. 20. But a teaser from the taped performance is now out — and it’s worth a viewing.

The 27-year-old British songstress both sounds and looks stunning in the snippet, released Friday by BBC Music.  It marks her first TV appearance since performing “Skyfall” during the 2013 Oscar ceremony.

Adele, I will be waiting anxiously to hear your album and looking forward to travel where you are to here you live; like the last time in London! 🇬🇧

Can you tell I’m a lovely fan! 😉.  Ladies and Gentleman….ADELE

BBC’s Luther 2nd Season – Idris Elba

30 Jan
Luther (TV series)

 

 

Here’s my response to the many e-mails I received on Luther, do I know?

Yes,  Yes….there’s going to be a second season!

BBC did announce Luther second series will be airing in the Spring!.  It will broadcast as two two-hour long specials, on BBC One; no dates published yet.  They just finished filming.

It’s so hard to believe when Luther originally aired in the UK, the ratings were said to be decreasing during the series. The series was up against such shows as against ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent and Coronation Street; which played a major reason.

I must admit, the fans who created such a stir frenzy that the series was definitely a must see; surely proved that by having such positive feedback of the series was the catalyst of BBC One’s decision to allow the series to be included in the line-up of many cable networks!

And even when it could n’t get any better, Idris Elba received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.   Although the Golden Globe award went to Al Pacino, You Don’t Know Jack; the nomination clearly shows the decision to continue the series was definitely a good choice!

Many of you have asked, who is my favorite character?  Of course, Idris Elba who plays John Luther!  Then there’s Ruth Wilson, who plays Alice.  My favorite quote by her?  ” I did it for YOUUUU”!  Her acting, well let’s say..so believable!

With Neil Cross’s writing, the Luther cast and our love for knowing what’s going on across the pond, I believe we all are anxiously waiting for “What’s next?”.  The acting is so superb and drama to the highest!  I’m wondering, are you wondering?

If you are on Facebook and haven’t done so already, you can join the page name Luther, join the Discussions tab to be part of all the buzz with people around the world, all waiting and telling what they liked about the series!  And I’m sure, also the second series when it begins airing in a few months!  Everyone is sooooo bloody happy!

See! Once again, I didn’t give too much away, for those who have n’t seen it (see my first commentary).  It’s now on DVD, so it’s not too late to catch up!

So everyone, let’s get ready!

BBC America’s Luther – Idris Elba!

5 Dec

When talking with my Aunt Vadney who lives in London, she keeps asking if  I have been watching the BBC’s mini-series, named Luther.    My answer, usually is…. Hmmm, not yet!  

Last night I should n’t have had 2 cups of coffee so late, I couldn’t go to sleep!   So when checking last night my cable’s ON DEMAND line-ups, I’d noticed BBC America.  Luther was listed, so I began watching the 6 – part mini-series on my cable,  this was about 9 PM and here it is 7 AM in the morning and I just finished, I was also watching Law & Order UK <great too!>

Such a fantastic writer, Neil-Cross has brought his characters to life and I must say his creation of this 6 – part mini-series was so full of suspense, I was at the edge of my seat !  My pooch was wondering, why I kept jumping up and down! 

Neil Cross

Without giving away too much, Idris Elba <love him!> is the brilliant London murder detective, John Luther (DCI) solving the most unbelievable, yet believable crimes.  However, it’s not just solving mysteries, the BBC series leaves you memorized in getting to know this detective’s crazed life, sometimes leaving you to shake your head, but often sympathize with him at times!  The wonderful cast always leaves the viewer, with the question, “What do we do now?”  Superb acting!  The characters just popped off the screen.<video below>

There’s going to be a  Season 2  and I definitely can’t wait!  Now, if you want to partake in a great story-line with a lot of suspense; check it out!   You won’t be disappointed!

If you want more of the East London born actor;  Idris Elba has joined the cast of  ‘Thor’, the Marvel Studios film about the Norse God of thunder; coming in May 2011.  He plays Heimdall, the guardian of Asgard.  A very important role protecting the Rainbow Bridge, so there will be a lot of action! 

Well, thanks Aunt Vadney!  Better late, then never they say!!  Well, it’s 8:30 AM, I ‘m going to sleep!  🙂  zzzzz
