“Cinderella” – new single from Traci Hines

traci-hines-cinderella-1

A new single from Traci Hines, of Disney Little Mermaid cosplay fame, was just released. “Cinderella” is all about having hope and determination to make your dreams come true. Written by Traci and her producer Adam Gubman.

It’s not a cover of a song from Disney’s Cinderella, instead it’s an original number that really captures that Disney feel.

Of the song Hines says, “The concept started out with Cinderella, which is why I kept the theme of the video inspired by her, but the song is meant to be sort of our take on if we got to write a new song for a modern Disney Princess film, whether it was for Cinderella herself, or a whole new character. I’ve been singing Disney music for as long as I can remember, so it was really fun to imagine what it would be like to write something a Disney Princess would sing.”

There’s definitely room in the world for more Disney songs, even if they’re not original Disney songs. As a long time role player with a focus on Disney, Hines is well positioned to create these songs. I hope she continues.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2, Ep. 14 Preview

agents-of-shield-213-1

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2, Ep. 14 is titled “Love in the Time of Hydra.” The plot synopsis tells us that that Coulson and his team are still reeling from a shocking revelation that leaves the team, not to mention Skye’s arms) fractured as they must decide what to do with one of their own. Meanwhile, Bobbi and Mack reveal their true allegiance to Hunter, while elsewhere, Ward and Agent 33 embark on a personal mission.

I can’t wait to see Edward James Olmos, who is playing the Director of a completely separate SHIELD organization. Other guest stars include: Adrian Pasdar as Brigadier General Glenn Talbot, Christine Adams as Agent Weaver, Kirk Achevedo as Agent Calderon, Mark Allan Stewart as Agent Oliver, Simon Kassianides as Sunil Bakshi, Raquel Gardner as Carla Talbot, Maya Stojan as Agent 33, Landall Goolsby as Selwyn, Gigi Bermingham as Rhonda, Parisa Fakhri as Lieutenant Decker, and Meredith Bishop as Officer Anderson.

I’m excited to see where this goes as we lead up to the May 1st premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. I hear there may be some cross-over between the TV show and the movie. Just as how Captain America: Winter Soldier made a huge difference.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs this Tuesday at 9:00 PM ET on ABC!

Cinderella Slips Off Glass Slipper, Falls to Second in Box Office

cinderella-secret-garden

Facing off against an Insurgent box office, Disney’s Cinderella still managed to place second at the cinematic ball with $34.5 million during its second weekend at the domestic box office. That adds up to to $122 million so far in the US and Canada. Add in the foreign earnings of $131 million and that brings the total earnings to $253 million.

It looks like a fairy tale ending for Disney as the film is estimated to have cost $95 million to produce.

While the live action version of Disney classic isn’t a musical, Lily James does sing “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” for the end credits. You can listen to a version of that song in this newly released music video:

Have you seen Cinderella in theaters? What did you think?

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D recap – One of Us

image

This weeks episode began with Cal, just as mentally unstable as ever, recruiting various gifted, or rather enhanced, people from S.H.I.E.L.D.’s index.  His goal hasn’t changed, take down Coulson and S.H.I.E.L.D., but now he’s enlisting the help of a computer genius, a mob enforcer who used chemistry to make himself even stronger and a woman who seems to be just as unstable as Cal as she has permanently attached blades to her finger nails after a bad break up.

The team of baddies head to a mental institution to break out the final member of their group, a man who has the ability to case people to go catatonic with just a whisper. Coulson and Bobbie go investigate the breakout, which leads them to Coulson’s hometown, Manitowoc, Wisconsin. How Cal found out this was Coulson’s home is beyond me. But he’s setting a trap for our favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. director. Coulson realizes this and calls May for back up.

What has May and the rest of the team been doing this whole time? Because Skye is now listed on the Index, she has to go through a psych evaluation, which means calling in an outside consultant to administer it. Coulson wants to bring in Andrew Garner and May reluctantly agrees. Why is she reluctant? Because Andrew is her ex-husband, a fact that greatly interests Skye when she finds out. Fitz and Simmons are equally as interested, which serves to bring them back together as a team after Fitz lied to Simmons about Skye’s powers.

May gets the call from Coulson and the bus heads to Wisconsin, with everyone on board. There is then an argument as to how much of a role Skye should play in apprehending her father.  They decide to try and bluff Cal into surrendering by allowing May to put a gun to Skye head. This whole time Skye has begun to get her powers under control, she’s learning to push her emotions away, though Andrew makes the point that she’s not pushing them away, just internalizing them.
