How to Form a Girl Band

In 2008, Louis Walsh (of X Factor judge fame) and Kian Walsh decided they wanted to form a new girl band. They held auditions in Dublin, Ireland in July and 3000 girls auditioned! About the auditions, Louis said, “We’re looking for talent. Undiscovered talent, young with a good attitude and who will look good. We don’t want good - we want great.” The five lucky lasses were announced in December 2008 to be Jodi Albert, Sharon Condon, Corrina Durran, Leigh Learmont and Kasey Smith!

Reality Television

Even though it looks super fun to be in a girl band, it’s a lot of work too! Even though the band was formed in 2008, it’s taken two whole years for them to get their debut single and album ready! Leigh Learmont even revealed that it took them a year and a half to come up with the band name Wonderland! Cameras followed them around while they were producing their debut album and was aired on a reality show called “Louis Walsh and Kian Egan’s Next Big Thing” on ITV2 in the UK and TV3 in Ireland.

Debut Album

We’re only a couple of weeks away from the release of their debut album on 7 March in the UK! Their debut single, “Not a Love Song” has been described as “fun and cheeky with a rocky edge” by Jodi Albert and Corrina says “We’re quite casual and laid back girls. We sing music that’s quite heartfelt and we really want to get into our performances.” Check out a clip of them performing "Nothing Moves Me Anymore"!

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage.

'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
