Boy Band Alert: PRETTYMUCH | @prettymuch #music

Pretty-Much-Would-You-Mind-Audio-758x409

What’s up, peeps??

It’s no secret that I grew up in the boy band era (*NSYNC foreva!), but now I get to enjoy the new wave of boy band’s thanks to living with my 13-year-old niece. My niece is an old soul, so she was always willing to watch old *NSYNC videos with me, she’s gone to see New Kids On the Block with me twice, and we were hooked on ABC’s Boy Band Show this past summer. What can I say? It’s genetic!

I have to say that this is one of my current favorites. PRETTYMUCH has an old school style, catchy beats and they can dance their butts off! Plus, they were put together by Simon Cowell, who also put together my niece’s all-time favorite band, One Direction.

Check them out and let me know what you think! Who was your favorite growing up?

PRETTYMUCH is currently on tour with Jack & Jack, and we’ve heard some of their unreleased songs, which are amazing! Stay tuned…

Hey there, music lovers!

I had the pleasure of listening to Saint Raymond’s EP before its release and became an instant fan. It was released on Friday, November 17 and I’m happy to be able to share it with you now!

The A Light That Blinds EP follows from the release of the acclaimed Nottingham singer’s Top 10 debut album Young Blood in 2015.

You can listen to A Light That Blinds EP here – Spotify

IMG_1057Saint Raymond released two songs from the EP ahead of release, including the upbeat indie pop anthem ‘We Are Fire’ and the seductive late night swagger of ‘Nightcrawling’.

The singles have been receiving great support from Radio 1, with Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens particularly big fans at the station. He has previously been ‘Hottest Record In The World’ and completed a Maida Vale session for Radio 1 too.

Saint Raymond has received great praise from the broadsheets and indie tastemakers. His feel-good indie anthems have captivated arenas and he’s also played with the likes of HAIM, Jake Bugg and Ed Sheeran.

@Thisfunktional Talks With Manuel Garcia-Rulfo MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Actor Manuel Garcia-Rulfo has had an amazing career with projects like “MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS,” out in theaters now, which has included him with magnificent casts.

The character of Biniamino Marquez in “MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS” brings Rulfo to a cast of 12 magnificent actors which entertain in a classic story by Agatha Christie.

“I really had alot of fun playing this character, because it’s so different from what I’ve done before or very different from who Manuel is,” Rulfo said. “I’m a very reserved, shy man and this character is very much an open book.”

Although having been on several movie sets, been part of great movies and played some great roles, Rulfo still finds he learns so much from his co-stars.

The challenges that come with getting into the mindset of each role brings different challenges for actors to each movie, which Rulfo said he found to be part of the fun of this character.

Along with the challenge of a new role, Rulfo said the experience of this movie helped him appreciate working with a veteran cast.

“I’m very proud and blessed and lucky,” Rulfo said. “Having the opportunity to work with all these amazing people, in magnificent seven with all the actors and the magnitude of such a film and now this film. Then La Vida Inmoral with a wonderful friend of mine, Manolo Caro, and all the actors in it. I like those projects that you benefit, not only from the outcome, but from everything like the people you work with and that you learn from the people you work with — directors and actors — I’ve been lucky from that.”

Rulfo was thrilled when he heard the actors he would be working with. He looked forward to work with actors who he knew from their work.

 “All these people, I’ve admired and followed their careers so much and I respect them,” Rulfo said. “To share scenes with them, it’s like a pinch moment. Every time I was there, on the train, I would look around and think ‘What the fuck am I doing here?’ They are such professionals and they have this amazing human quality.”

There’s not many opportunities to bring to life a classic tale which is widely known, or that an actor gets to put a spin on a classic character.

Rulfo said, “The opportunity of bringing a classic like this one of Agatha Christie to the big screen, that’s what made me say of course I’m in.”
