Paramore sing about a Rose-Colored Boy

The hard times have come and gone, and Paramore are ready to get down with their latest synth-laden single, Rose-Colored Boy. The latest single off their 5th studio album, After Laughter, Rose-Colored Boy comes complete with a totally 70’s vibes in the music video, which sees frontwoman Hayley Williams taking on the appearance of a newscaster from that time period, complete with big hair, and her bandmates in Mad Men-esque suits.

REVIEW: Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is the first in a planned trilogy of animated movies starring none other than the King of Monsters himself, Godzilla, as the title might give away, but it’s a different kind of Godzilla movie than most of the fare currently out there. Godzilla has seen an big screen revival of late, with Shin Godzilla reigniting Godzilla fever in Japan, but it’s the 2014 Hollywood reboot version of the kaiju that takes the starring role in this story.
