Lorde tells Rolling Stone that she got teary-eyed when she heard that Bruce Springsteen covered "Royals". "My Twitter went mental. Everyone in New Zealand was like 'You can't believe what just happened! It was so exciting. It was the highest honor. He's such an incredible songwriter. I got a little teary. It was very cool. It's crazy when someone like that is covering your song. Those words were nothing before I put them into my laptop and started messing around with them in the studio. It's crazy to me they could come out of someone's mouth who is that respected."
In this totally awesome British commercial for the EE mobile network, Kevin Bacon reprises some of his most iconic film roles, including Capt. Jack Ross from A Few Good Men, Ren McCormack from Footlose and yes, even Jack Burrel from Friday the 13th.
The Buffalo Home Show opens this weekend and This Old House's Kevin O'Connor is a special guest! He loves Buffalo's old architecture, and we're happy to know especially familiar with our watering holes!
Daylight saving time begins Sunday. A new survey reveals that the average person needs 3.5 days to adjust to daylight saving time. Other findings:
- 82% of people feel tired, groggy and irritable while adjusting to the time change
- 50% of people need eight or more hours of sleep per night to feel well rested
- 20% of people are sleeping on a mattress that is nine years or older
The Monday after we spring ahead for Daylight Saving Time is the worst Monday of the year for accidents. Observing Daylight Saving Time year-round would prevent 195 motor vehicle deaths and 171 pedestrian fatalities. Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands don't observe daylight saving time.
University of Alabama at Birmingham Professor Martin Young says, "The Monday and Tuesday after moving the clocks ahead one hour in March is associated with a 10 percent increase in the risk of having a heart attack. The opposite is true when falling back in October. This risk decreases by about 10 percent. Exactly why this happens is not known but there are several theories. Sleep deprivation, the body's circadian clock and immune responses all can come into play when considering reasons that changing the time by an hour can be detrimental to someone's health."
Wake up 30 minutes earlier on Saturday and Sunday than you need to in preparation for the early start on Monday Eat a decent-sized breakfast Go outside in the sunlight in the early morning Exercise in the mornings over the weekend (as long as you do not have pre-existing heart disease) Doing all of this will help reset both the central, or master, clock in the brain that reacts to changes in light/dark cycles, and the peripheral clocks -- the ones everywhere else including the one in the heart -- that react to food intake and physical activity. This will enable your body to naturally synch with the change in the environment, which may lessen your chance of adverse health issues on Monday."

Just wondering, do those sticks qualify for bags fly free? This totally shows how non-glamorous and tenuous the life of an athlete can be. 20 games left in a regular season, who knows how long in the playoffs...and much of it probably spent in a hotel...or maybe a new teammate will take them in.

Newsies, Disney’s Tony Award®-Winning “Critics’ Pick” To Hold Auditions for Male Dancers in Buffalo on Friday, March 7for Broadway and North American Tour
Disney Theatrical Productions will hold an open call audition for male dancers for both the Broadway and upcoming North American touring productions of Newsies, the Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical smash, in Buffalo on Friday, March 7 at 4pm at Adam’s Mark Buffalo (120 Church Street/Buffalo, NY 14202). This audition will be first-come, first-serve and is for technically-trained Equity and non-Equity male dancers between 16 – 22 years old of all ethnicities who can tap and sing well.
This audition will be overseen by Lou Castro (Associate Choreographer for Newsies) who has worked on the Broadway productions of Women on the Verge, 13, and Sunday in the Park with George.
When: Friday, March 7, 2014Starts promptly at 4:00pm
Where:Adam’s Mark Buffalo120 Church StreetBuffalo, NY 14202
All dancers should bring sneakers, tap shoes, kneepads and a photo/resume.
Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score with music by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, with a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, Newsiesis directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work.
The show received 23 major theatrical nominations – including eight Tony Award nods – and won Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Score and Best Choreography. One of Broadway’s highest profile hits, it has been featured nationally on “Dancing with the Stars,” “The View,” “Good Morning America,” “Nightline,” “Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade,” and “The CBS Thanksgiving Day Parade.”
Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.
Newsies is inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899,’ when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers.
The stage version introduces seven brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including ‘Carrying the Banner,’ ‘Seize the Day,’ ‘King of New York’ and ‘Santa Fe.’
Since the film’s 1992 theatrical release and subsequent DVD release, Newsies has grown into a cult phenomenon, and for years had been the single most requested title of all the Disney musical films not yet adapted for the stage. (The film featured a screenplay by Bob Tzudiker & Noni White (Tarzan, 102 Dalmatians).)
