Blue Valentine: Ryan Gosling’s Earth-Shaking Movie – Download His Song!

Ryan Gosling sure knows how to steam things up.  Do you remember that amazing elevator kiss scene from Drive?  Ryan Gosling‘s “Driver” character gives “Irene” (Carey Mulligan) a prolonged, passionate kiss right before he saves the day by bashing a bad guy’s face in.  Gosling fans seeking more hotness from him will not be disappointed in Blue Valentine (watch it now on Netflix).  The Blue Valentine Soundtrack features great music by Grizzly Bear, Department of Eagles, Penny & the Quarters, and a bonus track by Ryan Gosling himself.

Blue Valentine is featured in a recent Rolling Stone article about some pivotal moments in history for the Millennial generation.  Read the article for details about that steamy scene in Blue Valentine, here: Coming of Age: Millennials’ Most Earth-Shaking Sexual Moments.

7 Must-Watch Movies For Serious Mad Men Fans

Tonight marks the debut of Mad Men‘s final season on AMC (check local listings).  Lakeshore Records takes a look at the cast’s other acting appearances.  You think you know everything about your favorite Mad Men series regulars?  We uncovered seven movies which star some of your favorite Mad Men actors: Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, Jessica Paré, Jared Harris and Alison Brie.

Lakeshore Records: Christina Hendricks in "I Don't Know How She Does It"

Debuted in 2007, Mad Men is a period drama which takes place in the ’50s and ’60s.  Not ones to spend their days sipping Martinis or filing their nails, these actors ventured out of their small-screen bubble.  Die-hard Mad Men fans will find it delightful to see Jared Harris in a saucy movie or Christina Hendricks play a less than classy lady.
