Trump has learned how to channel this so-called passion to appeal to a specific demographic that has, in turn, propelled him to the front lines of the Republic Party. Unfortunately, that passion is fueled by the dangerous concoction of hate, anger, and ignorance
I have great expectations for The Force Awakens. Not just because everything I've seen has wowed me in a way that I haven't been since perhaps the first three movies. It's not just because our original heroes have returned for this next installment.
There is political power in the image of President Trump as Alexander the Great cutting the Gordian knot of Washington with a single stroke of his mighty sword. Trump v. the Constitution? Well, yes. But, can he keep his policy and political commitments within the existing constitutional framework? Probably not.
The man behind moduS ponY is Matt Ackerman, a talented multi-instrumentalist who spills the colors of his mind into his work creating a dreamy collection of visceral sounds.
I spoke with Wendell Pierce - most famous for his HBO series roles in The Wire and Treme - on the closing weekend of Brothers from the Bottom, a critically-acclaimed play about gentrification in New Orleans after the storm, in which Pierce played a lead role both on stage and in production.
In the movie world you would not expect a smallish screening for a movie like Rock the Kasbah to have a night like this, but Bill Murray has great karma.

This attitude serves Giona well -- he takes the chance and does it -- and he and I enthuse over our love of Dave Grusin's winning score for The Goonies: which, it turns out, inspired us both to rush headlong toward the arts.
Traveling can evoke innovations and creations unlike any other muse. The inundation of new interactions, challenges, tastes, sights, smells and sounds awaken the spirit. Singer, songwriter, and healer, Meniyka Kiravell, has dipped the quill of her mind into the bottomless inkwell of travel.
When last we saw Larry David on his classic television show Curb Your Enthusiasm a number of years ago, he was wandering the streets of Paris with good friend Leon. And then the scene faded out and Larry David faded away. And since then, I've been desperately seeking Larry!
