Well, I just finished watching The Sound of Music: Live. I'm on the West Coast, and in summation: The hills are certainly still alive. (Unfortunately, in one respect there is way too much "wood.") Sit back, please. This is not brief.
I'm looking forward to April's wedding, and I'm very concerned about Christina and Meredith: They're recruited as April's "people"; hopefully they remember they were each other's person before mid-season break. The tension is too much for me!
Any other female performer who refused to share any of her personal life (or personality, really) would quickly be branded with quite different labels than the ones we have reserved for Queen Spears.
Historically, gay men have engaged in intergenerational relationships -- among consenting adults -- probably more than straight people have. One reason is that we've had to find each other and teach each other about ourselves, and often that's been about older people teaching younger people.
In its Thanksgiving episode "Big Bang" took a big swing with a high concept that didn't entirely work, and here they try to pull double duty with a serial story and an episodic one.
If you're like most Americans, you know that Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison and emerged without hatred to spearhead a peaceful transfer of power in South Africa. But you probably know nothing about the 1995 Rugby World Cup match.
This raw, unrelieved portrayal of the underbelly of America is not an easy picture to take, but it has an authentic if harrowing Appalachian ring. No spring in sight here (except perhaps at Oscar night).
Though none of us could ever truly imagine the trials Nelson Mandela faced or the suffering he experienced, a number of filmmakers have used the power of cinema to present a window -- however narrow and skewed it might be -- into that struggle, or one like it.
This must be the Season of the Witch. Not only did the brilliantly warped minds behind American Horror Story, Ryan and Murphy and Brad Falchuk, create a Coven of them for Season 3, but they also made the witchiest woman of them all part of it. And Stevie Nicks couldn't be more delighted.
What my father told me was exactly what Mandela said when he got out of jail. He asked the South African people to rewrite their songs, to resist their first impulse. He said: Please do not to be defined by the prejudices of your enemies.
After being outsiders, the Coens are in the strange position of having critics seemingly tripping over each other to lionize whatever they do -- and I feel like that's what might be happening with their latest film Inside Llewyn Davis.
This week's playlist includes music by Elliott Carter, Big Mama Thornton, Maria Callas, Joan Armatrading, and more.
Actress and singer America Olivo (NBC's upcoming Chicago PD, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark) certainly knows about that, being a multi-racial mix of Chilean, Basque, Spanish, Italian, Irish and Belgian.
Given my previous experience, I walked into the 8 p.m. showing of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last night with low expectations. To my delighted surprise, 30 minutes into the film, I was sure that this movie would live up to everything I wanted it to be.
Last night Scandal turned into 24 and dumped torture porn on us Scandalistas.
Believe it or not, fictional newsman Ron Burgundy is slated to guest host ESPN's signature newscast Sportscenter.
Narco Cultura looks into the world of the Mexican drug cartels and how it has spawned a culture that romanticizes and celebrates the bloody exploits of the men behind it. I was able to sit down with Schwarz for an in-depth glimpse into the motivations for this project.
This week I talked with 21-year-old singer Jonathan Allen, who touched our hearts singing his way into the semifinals on America's Got Talent. His audition performance has been called the most emotional audition ever in the show's history.
Through his biography, and now thanks to his boundless self-regard and lack of filter, West is an apt poster child for Generation: Me,
"Helping others and giving back have been incredibly important to us throughout our career," says Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix, "so when Make-A-Wish came to us and told us about Mark Guerra we were thrilled to be involved."
If you're in New York, you owe it to yourself to see the sexiest, most mind-blowing night of singing and sin you'll ever experience.
Screw the social bias. Everyone should date whomever they want.
