Dierks Bentley Is Hoping His Lucky Number Wins Him Some ACM Awards
Having worked on Oscar campaigns for 35 years, I found going to the 87th Academy Awards ceremony a serious revelation of the American zeitgeist. On the other hand, celebrating "Oscar Weekend" was just a hell of a lot of fun.
The number of plays from some music streaming services are now being included with sales results to rank releases in various music industry "charts" -- the standard reference point for success in the commercial music business. What are these new charts actually measuring?
While The Riot Club is fairly predictable, its cast is no doubt a showcasing of the stars of British cinema's future not unlike our own The Outsiders (1983) that supplied us with Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, and so many more.
Virgin Produced, the film, television, and entertainment division of the British Virgin Group recently collaborated with the Fred Kiesner Center for Entrepreneurship at Loyola Marymount University for the Hilton Distinguished Entrepreneur Lecture Series held at their West Los Angeles campus on March 19th.
Can't say this is the best film of the franchise, because so many of them have been excellent. But it's easily the most daring. Fasten your seat belts and test the airbags. This one accelerates real fast.
Oh Helix fans! You know who you are. No hiding. Especially if you want to see what Kyra Zagorsky just told me! Is Kyra the hottest doctor or what?!
Despite a lot of acclaim, it was passed over at the Oscars and by most critics groups. It grossed less than $40 million worldwide (most of that in the US), so chances are you haven't seen it yet. You should.
"Ladies and Gentlemen!" The orchestra rose to their feet as the last of their bold notes danced off the curved walls and undulated ceiling of the concert hall. "Ladies and gentlemen!" exclaimed Stuart Chafetz with a showman's bravado.
"I never would mess around with peoples' emotions and put music out that didn't mean everything to me. It's just not what I do. I can't make records quickly. I can't do stripped down live shows. I'm all in on everything."
John Coltrane is worth much more than the sum of his parts. His work permeated the collective conscience of those concerned with disrupting the norm, with challenging their own mastery of their crafts.
If Freakshow ended with a too convenient mass-murder, Empire was just as much to blame for a reverse-illness scenario. When you're trapped in a script corner, erase those pesky plot traps. The audience won't care.
We are performing our Samba this week to "Chillando Goma" by Fulanito, which is a super fun and upbeat song! I'm really enjoying that each week brings a new challenge for me and keeps me on my toes, literally.
For those of you who may have forgotten the O'Toole film or missed the last week's documentary, Masada is an ancient fortress located between the Dead Sea and the Judean desert. Though that sounds a bit academic, there is nothing at all dry or boring about Masada. Herod's temple is breathtaking in scope and scale.
When Eden found that she had in fact been cast as the voice of Star Butterfly, she began bouncing off the walls with glee. Which proved to be a bit of a problem once Eden got in the recording booth.
We have a winner! Alicia wins the race for state's attorney but is losing everywhere else. She tries to reach out to Prady, but he won't work with her. Finn, despite being adorable and buying her a video game, has a new girlfriend. Her campaign manager is leaving, having done a job well-done. And Peter? He is very, very low in my book.
On Postcards From Berlin, we follow [debut] as they discover their unique sound. Still a work in progress, [debut]'s music is highly cinematic and evocative, utilizing dark, electronically produced beats and synth paired with ethereal pianos, strings and female vocals.
Elisabeth Moss, now more famous for Mad Men than when I first saw her onstage in David Mamet's Speed the Plow opposite Jeremy Piven and Raul Esparza, gives Heidi the requisite intelligence, as she did in the Mamet play.
