Seth Cohen Would Still Completely Love Death Cab For Cutie
Someone from the local paper was in attendance and wrote an extensive story on the incident. The rest of the show takes off from there, with the hosts Wold and O'Connell chiming in with stories that are brought mind by the guest's adventures. The episodes are not very long but they are, as advertised, always silly.
Though seemingly disorganized, Serenity Gathering managed to put together a beautiful festival in spite of oversold tickets and overworked staff. From the eyes of attendees, it was nothing but beautiful music, art, performances and oak trees.
"I met him on a Monday and my heart stood still." That's the opening line of the 1963 hit "Da Doo Ron Ron", one of a string of songs that vividly captured the essence of teenage romance in a way American popular music had rarely done.
The Drapers lived in Ossining, N.Y., and so did we beginning in 1963. Before that, we lived in a Bronx apartment building on Fordham Hill, a place I hadn't thought of in years.
I can think of no better way to celebrate Bruce Willis' 60th birthday than by thanking him for making the world better for bald men everywhere.
The uncanny similarity of Maze's vocal intonation to that of the (former) King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is remarkable. There's a uniqueness to his voice that makes it easy to get wrapped up in.
Sadly, we live in a culture of digital cruelty that no one is immune to. Whether you are a celebrity, the child of a sports figure, or an average person trying to get through life -- you can be struck down by the emotional keystrokes of cyber-bullets.
And if the festival is not enough to intrigue, one can always walk around the port of Thessaloniki, brimming with bars and outside tables, with people enjoying grilled octopus, kalamata olives, melted feta cheese and animated conversation (where is that crisis?)
Remember the great John Hughes film The Breakfast Club, in which five high school students (labeled as "the brain, the athlete, the basketcase, the princess and the criminal") are forced to peacefully coexist in Saturday detention?
So what's McGillicuddy's favorite offering at this year's festival? Genevieve honestly found it hard to choose between two screen legends who'd agreed to make special appearances at TCFF 2015.
Not sure about this one. Kevin Hart is terrific. Will Ferrell starts broad while setting up plot, but his performance is forced. Whereas Hart, who plays it straight, is a delight.
Check your social consciousness at the door. Forget the formulaic script and lackluster direction. Get Hard features two genius comic actors working their craft like magicians. Hart and Ferrell make this movie raunchy, silly, hysterical and fun.
It's always a toss up of priorities. I know as I'm gorging on good material that there are moments I should savor. But the total package is so seductive that I can't be bothered to be polite, reasonable, health conscious or disciplined.
Thirty-eight years ago this week, Sanford and Son ended its historic television run after 136 groundbreaking episodes. The show was anchored by the incomparable Redd Foxx and then-rising-star Demond Wilson.
The series has already been renewed for a second season, and after the events of the finale I just saw, it's hard to tell what direction the tale will now go, but I think it's safe to say that if you have a spare 325 minutes to binge watch The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, do so.
Many friendships between men and women are punctuated by attraction which is never acted on, but keeps the relationship exciting and alive. In the end, though, it isn't just about that energy and flirtation, it is more about knowing each other well and having each other's backs.
