Dancing with the Stars may bill itself as a splashy dancing entertainment. But once again, after the October 7th "Most Memorable Year" show, last night, it proves that it's the most emotionally resonating confessional since Oprah went off the air.
Unlike those who've taken to social media to express their disgust over Cosmopolitan Magazine's crowing of the Kardashians as "America's First Family," I've failed to understand the big to-do about the headline on the cover of their November issue. Love or hate them, the Kardashians embody what our country has come to represent to the rest of the world; vanity and excess.
As I watched the reenactment of Petit's walk between the towers, I marveled at his heroism. Who needs Marvel comic heroes when our children can see the wonder of human spirit in all its glorious action?

The watchword in all films of this type is realism--usually injected through live sound recording (rather than miming) of performances. (Still, there aren't many mixing desks in sight up the back of these "real" music venues.) But Ricki and the Flash plays things just a little too safe.
A View From the Bridge is entertaining and thought provoking. It also provides theatergoers with an opportunity to see an Arthur Miller classic performed impeccably.
Seattle Public Theater recently premiered Bad Jews to a sold out house at The Bathhouse Theater, and the youthful cast kept the audience involved from beginning to the surprise conclusion.
Each of these jobs create different levels of opportunity for networking and experience. And with each of them comes great responsibility as far as being careful to choose opportunities wisely.
Evan's Crime, directed by Sandy Tung, is an independent film about college kid who finds himself in deep trouble for a crime he didn't commit. The film premiered at the 31st Annual Boston Film Festival.
Last September, the interweb was introduced to new heartthrob, Robby Blackwell, by popular producer DJ Marley Waters on a track called "Afterparty" featuring Christina Milian where the new swoon brought with him a remarkably strong, soulful, yet, seductive voice.
At first glance, Rock the Kasbah seems like the typical Hollywood movie depicting Muslims: turbaned men on horseback, a girl who needs an American's help to succeed, and bombs blowing up when the plot slows in the movie. However, you would be ill-advised to pass quick judgment.
"Radio" is a track culled from Cold Fronts' new album Forever Whatever on legendary Sire Records, the act hailing from Philly, featuring frontman Craig Almquist. Here's the official story behind the Sire signing.
The four-time Grammy nominee has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide throughout her notable career. Her new musical project, titled Picking Up the Pieces, harkens back to the folk roots of her breakthrough 1995 debut album, Pieces of You.
