EXCLUSIVE: Tonight Alive Talk Facing Fears And Empowering Fans

Sara Scoggs
Sara Scoggs Aug 28, 2013

Tonight Alive have a new album coming our way soon, and I think they are just as excited for its release as their hardcore fans. One of my favorite things about this young band is their outlook on life and their message of perseverance, overcoming fears and being who you are. It's something a lot of young music fans can learn from and will eventually experience first hand. I asked them to elaborate on that sentiment when I caught up with them a few weeks ago. We will have more coming with the band soon on their new album, The Other Side. #musicrules

The Other Side hits stores in the US on September 10th, pre-order here

Meet My New Best Friend: THE BLAZAR

Sara Scoggs
Sara Scoggs Aug 26, 2013

For the past few days I have gotten to hang out with my new best friend, my Beacon Audio speakers. Man, I love them. The Blazar is portable and small --yet loud and full; and I can easily sync with my iPhone and iPad. That way I can blast Paramore and sing into my hairbrush as loud as I want. I also love that it’s portable so I can bring it from one room to the next as my “performance” moves around my place. I can also throw it in my bag and bring to a pool party or friends house for an impromptu to dance party. #musicrules

But wait, you can't buy them just yet. 

Beacon Audio also has a new Kickstarter to launch The Blazar Project and bring the product to the market. They have collaborated with tons of artists like Neon Trees and AWOLNATION for custom speakers only available via this Kickstarter. The pledges come with some pretty amazing incentives including limited edition speakers, these cool t-shirts and much more. I honestly love these speakers and the only way they will be in stores is if we help get the word out.  So tell a buddy so we can all blast our Blazar speakers. 

Learn more here about this amazing new toy we all need. 

What do you think of the speakers?

Last night Taylor Swift played to the Staples Center in LA for the second night in a row. Taylor welcomed two of our favorite ladies Tegan And Sara on stage to perform their song, "Closer" - and everyone was jumping! At Monday night’s show, Taylor welcomed Cher Lloyd for her hit "Want You Back" and Sara Bareilles for her anthem "Brave." She sure has a lot of friends in LA. 

Wonder who she will have Thrusday and Friday night! Take a look below.

Taylor Swift 'The RED Tour' Plays Los Angeles: 'Burning Red'

Sara Scoggs
Sara Scoggs Aug 20, 2013

Last night Taylor Swift kicked off a four-night stay at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to a sold out crowd. The 51st night of the Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter’s RED Tour was filled with dancing, emotion, sparkle and of course RED. I had never seen Taylor live before, but I had been told she puts on a spectacular show. 

That was very accurate.

Taylor’s live show, just like her latest album RED, takes you through a spectrum of emotions. My heart was racing when I heard the opening song “State of Grace,” I had a huge smile on during hits like, “22” and “You Belong With Me,” but I also had an emotional connection with Taylor during the heartbreaking ballad, “All Too Well.” She sang live, did a bit of dancing, and lots of jumping. She played the guitar, the banjo and the piano. She played songs solo, and with a full band. She ran all over the stage with tons of visual effects, but also sat calmly on a stool with an acoustic guitar and sang the same songs she had written in her room at 3 am. 

I didn’t leave the Staples Center with the same sort of glow I get after a Paramore show, or the same kind of exhaustion I get after jumping around to Jimmy Eat World – but I did leave with the same sort of feeling you get after a good chat with a close friend or after watching a an emotional film. A sense of relief that someone else is dealing with the same sense of loss, and that lessons in love are learned over and over. Now Taylor’s core audience might be too young to really empathize with Taylor’s songs that this point in their lives, but she did a wonderful job of bestowing her advice among the young audience. I especially liked what she said before playing her Grammy Award Winning song, “Mean.” Basically that being bullied isn’t just for high school, it continues into adulthood. A harsh reality, but an important one to not ignore.

Live Taylor Swift was able to make over 15,000 people feel like we were all her best friends. I guess that’s the best part about Taylor Swift in general; I see a bit of myself in her. I am sure a lot of people dealing with these same lessons in love and life can agree with me. The hopelessly hopeless ones who want the fairytale but keep learning it’s not as easy as the stories you read as a child make it seem. The lessons that people can be mean, but you can be above it. The lessons that hearts can break, but they can still survive. And the lessons that your friendships in life can be your saving grace. #musicrules.

Would you see Taylor live?

Why Chandler Bing Is My Favorite Friend

Sara Scoggs
Sara Scoggs Aug 19, 2013

Today is Matthew Perry's 44th birthday! Matthew is the man behind one TV's most beloved characters, Chandler Bing from Friends!

Matthew had has tons of other roles, but his role as Chandler is my favorite. Sarcastic yet sensitive; Chandler is a real treat. 

Yes, really.

He always held a special place in my heart with his outlook on life, love and trying to find his place in the world. I always identified with those parts of his personality and honestly see a lot of myself in him.

Chandler is sensitive...

 ...And just wants to find that speical someone.

There was a point when he didn't know what career path to take... 

 

... But he never gave up!

He may not always know what to say in a crisis...

... But he is quick with a joke.

He likes to relax on the weekend...

...But he can cut a rug when there's a celebration.

He can go with the flow when need be...

...And relax. 

And through it all he made me laugh...

... But he eventually fell in love with his best friend Monica, and had it all. 

Awwwww.

Happy Birthday Matt -- and thanks for Chandler!
