The Finding Freddie video podcast on YouTube is a wonderful ongoing series of short videos covering different aspects of Freddie Mercury’s life. So far there have been 4 episodes. If you’re a fan of Queen music you’ll love these!
Bohemian Rhapsody Overload
Hyped for this. Don’t be bad. Don’t be bad. Don’t mess it up. It’s kinda odd to think of Elliot from Mr. Robot as Freddie Mercury but this trailer is promising, unless you’re going to pick holes in every little bit of it. I enjoyed this interview with Rami Malek […]
