Sara Bareilles, “Brave”

Sara Bareilles’ latest serves as the lead single from her fourth studio album, The Blessed Unrest.  While researching the song, I couldn’t help but to fall more in love with it.  Not only was it directed by first-timer Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation, I Love You, Man), but Bareilles wrote it for a friend who was facing trouble with his sexuality.

No wonder it’s already the third-highest charting song of her career.

Robin Thicke, “Blurred Lines”

Robin Thicke recently found himself in hot water with his latest single, “Blurred Lines.”  In less than a week after its release, YouTube removed the video, citing violations to their terms of service (i.e. nudity… and lots of it).

“Hybrid,” a scene.

I recently finished a course titled “Art of the Short Screenplay” at the Jacob Burns Film Center.

There, I was able to develop an idea I’ve been toying with for a while.  Here’s a draft of the (very brief) opening scene:

Nikki Williams, “Glowing”

Nikki Williams is no stranger to penning hits for pop radio.  Her most recent co-writing credit is none other than Demi Lovato’s “Heart Attack,” which currently sits comfortably at the #10 spot on the Billboard Hot #100.

Check out her solo effort below, “Glowing,” from her as-of-yet untitled album, due for a 2013 release.
