Cover Me Monday: Why Don’t You Love Me

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals
Sometimes you don’t really know what songs could benefit from being a little “rocked up” and to be honest this song is a prime example. I am not that big a fan of the Beyonce original of this song…it was yet another in the Beyonce oeuvre of sassy R&B, “I am woman hear me be melismatic!” tunes and if you have heard one of those puppies you’ve heard more than enough. But in the hands of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals it becomes a hard-charging, bluesy rock song with Ms Potter doing her damnedest to channel the energy of Grace Slick and succeeding marvelously.

The Seven Best Not-So Final Girls

The Not-So Final Girl is my own little observation about horror movies (most notably the slasher variety) and a tweak on the trope of the Final Girl, in that there is almost always one female character in a slasher film that usually gives the killer a run for his money before finally being taken out or just makes a huge enough impression on the audience (mostly through a strong performance by the actress) that we begin to wish she didn’t have to die.
