Alecia Moore's New Project Includes Ode To Her Mom
Mad in America's International Film Festival will encourage us to think anew about the nature of what is commonly called "mental illness" and its treatments. I have had a chance to preview some of the festival films.
Both movies involve infidelity and old flames. One of the characters is desperate to get pregnant and turns to someone other than her husband. At some point in the middle, they get high. But they are by no means the same movie.
There is a space where existential nuance and personal confession all exist in the rhythms of a dreamscape universe. This is the world of Pell, and with his recent album Floating While Dreaming, he transports us to a universe of varied influences manifested in ambient sounds and serious hip-hop grooves.
The curious nature of promoting a business or exposing a brand has rapidly changed over the last ten years as social media birthed magical new genres of entertainment, marketing, and business communications. And yes, even job search and recruiting.
It's over? Already? There are so many more artists to see, music to experience, moments to remember, Nashville sights to check out.
Waxing nostalgic makes me want to get my hands on an old upright Moviola. It's a magical machine that captures a bygone age of cinema, a tactile one where you held images in your hand and then fed the delivery system, celluloid, through metal sprockets, rubber belts and optics.
It is easily the best part of the whole show and is reminiscent of a past Meyers routine that worked very well -- his banter with Bill Hader's character Stefon on SNL's Weekend Update segment.
At 80, Cohen announced, he'd start smoking again. On this CD, he already did.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of watching San Francisco electro duo Double Duchess perform at Stargayzer Festival in Austin, and this week they have followed up that performance with an equally mesmerizing music video for their new single, "Good Girl Freak Out."
Pride is the kind of movie that is best seen without knowing its storyline going in. Because it delivers something quite different than you expect, based on the kind of movie it seems to be.
I cannot tell you how exciting it was the first time we opened that locker. We had no idea if we'd find hidden treasure or junk. The locker was packed with filing cabinets and boxes and it was very dusty, but that was a good thing -- it had not been touched in a very long time.
Have we fallen so far? Have our standards for what we constitute as art dropped so low that when we hit lower and lower depths we become desensitized to it all? Where do we go from here? Is this vulgar lowbrow popular music the new normal? I certainly hope not.
Ron Bloom doesn't have to be in the entertainment industry. In fact, given his track record for making money for a lot of people, he really doesn't have to do much. And yet, here he is, literally in the heart of Hollywood at the BiteSizeTV studios on the main floor of the W Hotel right on Hollywood Blvd.
One of today's great comediennes is in fact a man. In the tradition of other celebrated gender benders, like Divine, Dame Edna and RuPaul, the man who transforms nightly into Varla Jean Merman has spent the better part of 20 years elevating "drag" to a peerless variety of this art form.
Outlander presents a fantasy that doesn't seek to appease the pornography-influenced tastes of a straight male audience. To put it in simpler terms, Outlander is a drama crafted for the straight female gaze.
JLo, you just redefined the image that the world has of a 45-year-old woman. You celebrate the sexual power of a beautiful big booty in your new "Booty" video and destroy the idea that women over 40 are over.
Episode 107 begins with a flashback to Claire's and Frank's wedding day.
