OK, I'm a little late to the party. The 12-episode sci-fi drama Sense8 produced and created by J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5) and written by siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix) has already debuted June 5 on Netflix.
Under Ingrid's strict embrace I got my very first byline in print, and went on to write hundreds of articles for Spin, Details, Rolling Stone, the New York Times, and eventually publish two books about music. I owe part of that to Ingrid because she gave me a chance when all I had was an unpublished restaurant review.
It's been almost six months since the tragic discovery of Bobbi Kristina's body face down in a bathtub. After her family exhausted all hope for a miracle, Bobbi Kristina has now left this earth. No matter what the final cause of death, there is one constant-grief. Grief seemed to be a key factor in her senseless death.
Whether dark or joyous, there is much to gay culture and in this time of merging, blending, homogenization, it's nice to have two reminders of how fabulous gay culture can be, and how far it has come with so far yet to go.
What filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer uncovered in his first film on the subject, The Act of Killing, and now in his follow up film, The Look of Silence, is the dirty little secret that this was a cover story to justify a ruthless military take over of the country. A bloodbath the United States wittingly and unwittingly supported.

Experienced pollsters will tell you that the best indicator of which candidate will ultimately win an election is the question: which candidate would you rather have a beer with?
Of course they weren't perfect, but they got so much so darn right--in a time when it mattered so darn much.
Farrell shares how he has learned to resist forcing too much of his own life experiences into a performance, so as not to make it an exercise in what he calls "purge acting."
As commercialization increases, Super Concerts are labeled as music festivals and made to be a hot ticket of the summer. This is not the natural progression for the thriving music festivals in America and around the world, but a bastardization and redefinition of the concept of a festival.
Cher has said that if Donald Trump is elected President, she has an exit plan -- she will move to Jupiter. Stay put, Cher. Trump is not going to be nominated or elected, and everyone knows it (except possibly Trump).
They wanted to do a remake of The Champ. I'm not a big fan of remakes, nor am I the guy to go to for an adaptation or reinvention. That said, I pitched them the idea of telling the next chapter of Marshall's story through the analogy of boxing.
It's fitting that Robert DeLong's new song is called "Don't Wait Up." Ever since he dropped his debut album Just Movement in 2013, the wunderkind music master has kept so many people out late at night, likely stumbling home the next morning with a well-worth-it, music-soaked throbbing headache.
It made me realize that death is something one can also laugh at, approach it with wonder and not only dread. It gave me the courage to think that perhaps our best years are ahead, instead of always behind.
Artur Balder's Little Spain offer us a neglected, often forgotten, seemingly incidental part of the history of Spain and New York. They converge in the form of Spanish immigrants to the city, a place where, as the song goes, "if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere."
Donald Trump says exactly what the GOP believes. It's a simple axiom: personal wealth accumulation is everything. It's just that when The Donald expresses their credo, he ignores the shinola and emphasizes the crass.
