102.7 KIIS FM is Calling Out for Carly Superfans

The folks over at the LA-based radio station, 102.7 KIIS FM, are looking for students who are huge Carly Rae Jepsen fans.

Presumably, it is for some sort of contest that may involve Carly performing at a school. I’m not sure if you need to be a student in the LA area, but give it a shot! Unfortunately, I don’t qualify as I’ve been out of college for awhile now.

Max Landis Releases a 150-Page Document about Carly’s Discography

Writer/Director Max Landis’s recent 150-page ode to Carly has been making the news and social media rounds lately, much to the delight and confusion of fans and non-fans alike. It is a manifesto-of-sorts which claims to extensively prove a specific pattern in Carly’s songwriting for every song she’s made. He titles it “A Scar That No One Else Can See”, a lyric from Carly’s “More Than a Memory”. You can read the document on his website. He has even made a PDF file so you can read it on your Kindle and other mobile devices.

Landis even went as far as to make this promotional video for it:

I’ve yet to read more than a handful of pages, so I can’t really give an opinion on it. However, the first review has come out from Slashfilm.com which describes it as “brilliant” and a “masterwork of bizarre storytelling”. Even Anthony Fantano , Youtube’s most popular music critic (theNeedleDrop), has shared his perspective on the piece in this video:

Writer and Director, Max Landis, is  most notable for writing the film “Chronicle”. He is the son of famed director Max Landis who has directed films such as The Blue’s Brothers, American Werewolf in London, Coming to America, and Michael Jackson’s Thriller music video).

Carly Rae Jepsen (Probably) Announced as a Performer for a Music Festival in Dubai

*UPDATE 9/13/17* – The site has confirmed that Carly will be a performer at the festival!

The promoters for Fiesta De Los Muertos, a Halloween themed music festival on October 27th, have been reveal teasing their performer lineups through a series of Tweets with songs played in reverse and many fans are agreeing that their latest Tweet is a dead-ringer for Call Me Maybe….

I wonder if Carly and crew will dress up again like she did that one time where she was Cruella DeVille and the band were the dalmations from 101 Dalmations ?

If you happen to be in the Dubai area before Halloween, be sure to get your tickets! Although you might want to wait until Carly is formally announced as a performer, but we’re 99% sure she will be.  The acts announced so far are Gorillaz, Stormzy, Massari, and The Mariachis.
