Veronica Mars Movie Trailer

After a sucessful Kickstarter campaign, the Veronica Mars movie has been made and will be released March 14th. The official trailer is now up and it looks like this movie just may live up to the hype, if not the tv show’s substantial legacy. Most of the cast is back (we’ll miss those Lilly flashbacks, but what could they do?): Veronica (Kristin Bell)! Veronica’s dad! Logan! Wallace! Dick! Mac! Leo (a.k.a. New Girl‘s Schmidt)! and I’ve read Weevil is supposed to be in the film, too, though he’s absent from the trailer. Check it…

Amanda Palmer: New Mp3 & Album!

The Dresden Dolls‘s former (and still occasional) frontwoman, Amanda Palmer, will release her sophomore solo album in September. An officially independent artist now, Amanda is currently running a Kickstarter campaign for fans to help fund the recording and just made the track “Do It With a Rockstar” available as a free, legal download on her site. You can access the mp3 by entering your email address at the link below. Those, like me, who had lost interest in the increasingly soft, somewhat gimmicky direction of Amanda’s solo career will be very happy to hear her return to raucous rock on this new song. Just when I thought I was out, she pulled me back in. Now I’m excited about her new album.

Amanda also made an endearing little Dylanesque video explaining the Kickstarter campaign with other audio clips from the new album…
