Happy Birthday, Marilyn Monroe! A Look Back at Her Life

Jeryl Brunner | June 1, 2015 | Entertainment
Although she was to become one of world's most alluring sex symbols, Marilyn Monroe's start in life was very, very far from glamorous. Born in Los Angeles on June 1, 1926, Norma Jeane Mortenson spent most of her childhood in and out of foster homes and orphanages.

The Grateful Dead: Never Has a Band Had Such Contempt for Their Fans

Mike Edison | June 1, 2015 | Entertainment
The massive phenomenon that was the Grateful Dead has never been objectively reported on, an historical anomaly that boils down to what might as well be a Buddhist koan: Pretty much anyone who was there must be immediately eliminated as a reliable witness.

Live from Encino... 'The Late Show'

Michael Barrie | June 1, 2015 | Comedy
As a writer on both series finales, Johnny Carson's Tonight Show in May of '92, and David Letterman's Late Show in May, 2015, I can say the shows were similar in one respect: both required me to -- for one last time -- drive to work in the San Fernando Valley.

Minding the Machines

Tom Klein | June 1, 2015 | Technology
There is no stopping our shared future with intelligent machines, whether this brings us comfort or conflict or both. Those lessons from the Stone Age must surely remain in our bones, and we cannot shake them even as we look ahead to the stars or down at our phones.

I Never Knew Kevin Costner Starred in a Cycling Film

Shannon Wrzesinski | June 1, 2015 | Entertainment
I love sports films. They tell the stories of unlikely heroes, show the sacrifices athletes make, and reveal agonizing truths behind the greatness we witness.

'It Follows' Won't Leave Me Alone

Scott Russell | June 1, 2015 | Entertainment
It Follows is a killer thriller that stays with you. Even as I write these words, more than six weeks after seeing the film, I can't listen to a single note of its soundtrack without shuddering and casting a nervous glance over each shoulder.

When the War is Off-Screen: Movies That Show the Other Sides of War

Jon Eig | June 1, 2015 | Entertainment
War is basically the perfect subject for a filmmaker. It is extremely visceral. It provides obvious action. Morality can be as opaque or as transparent as you like. War has been good to the film business.

World's Largest Family Reunion: Genealogy or Preen-ealogy?

Megan Smolenyak | June 1, 2015 | Fifty
Here's my deepest concern about the Global Family Reunion: Has the marketing of it been so successful that we're in danger of changing the definition of genealogy? The interest in famous cousins has always been there, but has its prominence in the GFR's PR campaign been such that many will think that's the whole point?

What Is It Like to Be a Disney Animator?

Quora | June 1, 2015 | Entertainment
My time with Disney was 15 years ago, so things may have changed. At first I was extremely stressed out. I was working at the best of the best. I ended up getting an ulcer in the first two months I was there.

Why I Am Thrilled To Share My Name With Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn Becker | June 1, 2015 | Women
I don't know how or why Caitlyn Jenner found her way to the name we now share, but I am proud as hell to share it with her. For me, my name has always given me strength and pride, but now it can do that for so many others thanks to Jenner.

Caitlyn Jenner -- Living Like We All Should Post 50

Sharon Greenthal | June 1, 2015 | Fifty
It's not just that Caitlyn Jenner looks good. It's the amount of courage she has to have to put herself out there, first on television as a man, and then on the cover of Vanity-freakin'-Fair as a woman. And not a young woman, either. Jenner is 65-years-old -- midlife, but approaching her senior years.

San Andreas: Separating 5 Facts From Earthquake Fiction

Graham Kent, Ph.D. | June 1, 2015 | Science
As a seismologist, I welcome this movie and hope it marks the beginning of a serious conversation about the real consequences of a large earthquake in modern America. Whatever the scientific flaws of San Andreas may be -- and they are plenty -- the consequences of a large urban earthquake remain unnerving.

The Book Expo Of America (BEA) and BookCon 2.0 just ended this weekend in New York City. If you love books, you should have been there. Actually, if you love movies or TV shows, you should have been there too, since lots of your favorite movies and TV shows are based on books or spin-off books.
