Finneas O’Connell is Heading an Instagram Manhunt

It looks like Billie Eilish’s big brother, Finneas O’Connell has run into some trouble. It appears that a couple of packages were stolen from his doorstep along with his doorbell camera which was, as he puts it, “ripped out of its socket”. But he’s found the perfect way to deal with this problem: social media.

Finneas is putting “all 2.4 million of [his followers] to good use,” by arranging an Instagram manhunt of sorts. So, here’s what he did. He put up a picture of his robber and captioned his Instagram post with this,

“This handsome fella stole a bunch of packages off my porch in LA today and then RIPPED my doorbell camera out of it’s socket and left with it. Lemme know if you know him. I won’t press charges if he gives them all back and let’s me give him a neck tat that says “thief”

Wow. That is possibly the most innovative and creative way to deal with a robbery. We did not see the bit about the neck tattoo coming.  Just last year, Finneas O’Connell moved into a home with his girlfriend, Claudia Sulewski, who also shared the salvaged doorbell camera footage to her Instagram story.

Some say that social media can be more terrifying than jail time and it looks like Finneas is proving that to be true. Though he’s taken quite a drastic measure against this thief, we’re still curious to see how it all unfolds.

In other news, while we’re on the topic of Finneas, we have to also bring up Billie Eilish. She just finished an Instagram live session with Rainn Wilson who plays Dwight Schrute on The Office. Oh and it’s worth mentioning that Billie binge-watched the sitcom for the 15th time in quarantine. Ahh the siblings and their eccentricities. They never fail to leave us entertained, in one way or the other.

Sia is Out to Lift Your Spirits With ‘Together’

Just like she’d promised, Sia has finally graced us with new music. Her new single is titled, ‘Together’ and it arrived with a music video too. The track will feature on Sia’s next project: a film called, ‘Music’, directed entirely by the singer herself.

The track was written by Sia and Jack Antonoff and produced by Antonoff too. Now, the song is a departure from Sia’s older numbers for sure, because this one’s a lot more peppy, syrupy-sweet and finds its home bang in the middle of the Pop genre. Which is interesting, considering that Sia tends to veer toward Alt-pop when it comes to most of her music. There’s always a new element, something that makes the piece uniquely Sia’s but for some reason – this song lacked just that.

Much like the song itself, the lyrics are charming and light:

I can see the lightning

Coming from your ears

Yeah, I see you’re frightened

I can see the lion

Sleeps tonight in the tears you’re crying

Oh, you can’t love me unless you love you too

Treat yourself like nothin’ but a fool

Can’t love me unless you love you too

It appears that self-love anthems are the new rage right now, but it’s not surprising considering that it’s also the need of the hour. During this difficult time, people are looking for music that will bring them some sense of comfort and maybe even cheer them up. But that being said, one can still create an uplifting song and bring something new to the table.

All About the Music Video

Now, coming to the music video. It all takes place within a rainbow-wallpapered playhouse and features Sia’s longtime collaborator Maddie Ziegler. Dancers are dressed in funny costumes, as they move about the room, delivering just the right dose of joy. The colour scheme in the video is also meant to cheer people up, it’s vibrant and loud, urging you to perhaps even sing along.  

This tune will be part of her upcoming album and film, both titled ‘Music’. Both projects are slated for release in September. Sia also hinted that she’s written a good 10 new songs, all of which we can probably expect to see on the album.

Until September, hopefully she’ll drop a couple more treats on the way.

Childish Gambino Back With The Community & It’s Hilarious

If you are wondering what your favourite Childish Gambino a.k.a. Donald Glover has been up to during this lockdown, we have a little scoop for you that is going to make you both excited, and get you laughing.

Donald Glover has reunited with the cast of the very popular 2009 show, ‘The Community’. He gained a cult following from the show as the geek — Troy Barnes.

Childish Gambino released some brilliant new music, on his own website and later on YouTube and other platforms, earlier this year that has been keeping his fans’ appetites full.

This week the singer-songwriter-comedian Donald Glover joined the rest of the loved stars from their respective homes. On your screen you can see Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong. It is hosted by the creator Dan Harmon.

Why are they doing a table read of this 2014 episode called ‘Cooperative Polygraphy’? To raise money for two different organisations that have been on the front lines of the country’s fight with COVID-19, ‘World Central Kitchen‘ and ‘Frontline Foods‘.

‘Cooperative Polygraphy’ was the was the fifth season’s fourth episode. Also a bit of trivia — this was Donald Glover’s almost one of the last episodes on The Community. He left the show after which it continued for eight more episodes and then bowing out. People were SAD, believe us.
