Gone? Yesterday Apple announced that over 500,000 iPads were sold during their first week. Based on forecasting, they’re likely to run out of them within’ a few weeks. The strain on supply has also delayed the iPads International launch.

Tomorrow, at The Grove in Los Angeles, CA, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment in conjunction with Inwindow Outdoor will unveil an interactive digital exhibition to promote the release of Avatar on Blu-ray and DVD. The Avatar display is a 60’ x 10’ structure at The Grove and features three ‘morphing stations’ surrounded by vinyl and branded in Avatar themes. As mall shoppers approach the screens, facial recognition technology will hone in on their faces and transform them into Na’vi, the blue skinned species from the future made famous in the movie. Once the morph is complete, users can enter their email address via touch-screen so they can be sent the video of their transformation along with information on where to purchase the DVD.

April 14th, 2010

Last night the Here Comes Trouble Tour featuring Ashlyne Huff, Just Kait, and Honor Society paid a visit to the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, MN. As a whole, the show was fun and gave the 100+ fans a chance to see Honor Society up close as well as hear new music from two newcomers.

Ashlyne Huff kicked off the show with her pop-rock inspired tracks from her soon to be released self-titled EP. Her set opened with the anthemic song, Soapboxer and led into another strong number, Make It Rain. Unfortunately her drummer Jerry took a more sterile approach to the beat than the one found on her upcoming release. After the two upbeat tracks, Ashlyne slowed it down a little bit with Heartbeat before the highlight of her set, Sweet Nothing. Everything just came together with this radio friendly sounding track featuring some of Ashlyne’s best lyrics. Following the song she promoted the new NOW 33 compilation featuring her debut single, Heart Of Gold… but instead of going right into the track she performed two snippets from other artists first which proved to be a clever way to promote the CD. The set kept moving with her upbeat songs Comeback and Trippin’ It Up, which featured some fun choreography with her backup singer Ely.

Ashlyne Huff — 35 Minutes

1. Soapboxer
2. Make It Rain
3. Heartbeat
4. Sweet Nothing
5. Now 33 Snippets
– TiK ToK
– Bad Romance
6. Heart Of Gold
7. Comeback
8. Trippin’ It Up

Best Song: Sweet Nothing
Pros: Autographs, Pictures and free CD samplers at intermission. Fun and energetic set for people unfamiliar with her music. Great lyrics!
Cons: Based on her career in dancing, it would’ve been nice to have seen Ashlyne put in a little more footwork.

Next, Just Kait took to the stage and the show felt a lot like her vanilla flavored moniker. Her set featured many of her tracks, amped up with aggressive guitar and a heavy thumping double-kick. Musically her performance was adequate, but you couldn’t help but wonder is she was 100%. However, her band definitely did their best to give some energy to the set. Not until the final minute did Kait step away from the microphone stand, and that was hop on the drums during the trash can finale at the end of her set.

Just Kait — 27 Minutes

1. Being On TV
2. Star Commander
3. Love Trying
4. Hot Stuff
5. Heart Shaped Bruise
6. Sick

Best Song: Hot Stuff
Pros: Autographs at intermission
Cons: Lacked any stage presence

After a short set change, Honor Society took to the dark stage as their entrance music played. As the lights came up they played a quick rock flavored riff before heading into Rock With You. For fans, this was definitely a plus as this song wasn’t played on their previous tour. Also, seeing the rhythm section laying down the funk was a treat. The fancy fretwork and slapping by Andrew on his Lakland Skyline Darryl Jones 5 string bass added a whole new dimension to the groups sound. As the song ended, they once again chopped through another rock riff into the crowd favorite, See U In The Dark… although it was interesting to see there was no reference of the Honor Roll. Following the track, Jason added some soft synth to accompany Michael’s dialogue before the group kicked into gear with Hear Comes Trouble. Once again the musicianship and tightness of the group shined on this track and the next track, Two Rebels. During the latter, several changes were noticeable, including variations with the keyboards, bass, in addition to the bridge being extended. After four energetic songs, they slowed it down with My Own Way. At the end of the song Alex and Andrew exited the stage, while Michael and Jason played a few of their favorite songs over the last year. The medley gave fans a chance to hear the vocals Michael showcased, even though Jason struggled with the backing vocals on Speechless. He made good though, with great lead vocal on Use Somebody. Alex and Andrew returned to help the two on their new track, When I Get Home. After the acoustic songs came to an end, the guys went back into high energy mode with Sing For You. Then it was Don’t Close The Book with Ashlyne Huff and Just Kait joining Honor Society on stage to help out with the vocals. As the song was coming to an end they went right into Over You and the crowd erupted as they all knew their time to party with the guys was going to come to an end shortly. The fun continued right into Nobody Has To Know and Michael did a few moves to connect with the crowd. After a short break, Honor Society returned to the stage to perform an encore with Full Moon Crazy… and it was!

Honor Society — 55 minutes

1. Rock With You
2. See U In The Dark
3. Here Comes Trouble
4. Two Rebels
5. My Own Way
6. Acoustic Medley
– Fire Bomb (Rihanna)
– Speechless (Lady Gaga)
– Need You Now (Lady Antebellum)
7. Use Somebody (Kings Of Leon)
8. When I Get Home
9. Sing For You
10. Don’t Close The Book (feat. Ashlyne Huff and Just Kait)
11. Over You
12. Nobody Has To Know
13. Full Moon Crazy

Best Song: Rock With You
Pros: Honor Society has definitely cranked it up a notch with their music.
Cons: Didn’t perform their first single, Where Are You Now (which was also one of their strongest live songs). Merchandise table should be renamed ‘fleecing’ table, prices are absurd. All that in addition to my laundry list of complaints I won’t revisit.

All in all it was a great show. Honor Society continues to be one of my favorite acts, although you can’t help but wonder how much longer they’ll survive with poor ticket sales in addition to several other forces working against them. To add to my concerns, at this time Honor Society has no plans to return to the studio and when asked about it Michael Bruno deflected the question by saying that Maroon 5’s album, Songs About Jane was out for two years before they had a break. Keep in mind, that was in 2002 – the economics of the industry have changed radically in eight years. I’m not saying Honor Society is over, but it might be wise to see them if you have the chance.

C21Media is reporting the ITV Studios Global Entertainment has closed a deal with TF1 of France to present TV movies including Lifetime’s blockbuster, The Pregnancy Pact and other titles from the Hallmark Hall of Fame.
