Our youth reporters have called this Disney / Pixar film, Inside Out a "masterpiece" of animation. They love the storyline which explores the bumpy ...
The occasion is this year's Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival, this weekend, October 24th and 25th, and the delightful subject is Jessica Williams, who will receive -- along with award-winning actress Ebony Jo-Ann -- the inaugural Reel Sisters Hattie McDaniel Award.
Is it possible to have too much comedy? Festival Supreme seems to be insistent on testing that limit, adding a fourth stage this year. The third annual Festival, which took place in downtown Los Angeles, was chock full of comedians, sketch acts, rock bands, and oddities this past weekend.
While Amy's personal experience is in the entertainment industry, her advice about cultivating healthy detachment can benefit anyone -- entrepreneurs in particular.
Even now, days later, I find myself considering Riley and her emotions. I think about the end of the movie when she finally opened up to her parents about how she felt. Instead of her parents simply telling her to be happy -- what most of us are told -- they said they feel the same way.
To this day, I'm hard-pressed to think of an experience as simple yet as satisfying as listening to a beautiful story read aloud. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but judging by the immersive experience these 11 audiobooks give us, a sound can be worth a whole lot more.

Double standards are so pervasive in society today. A guy who romances multiple ladies is a straight-up boss, but a girl who dates around is a "slut" ...
Inside Out is a wall-to-wall wonder, good news for anyone who despaired that the animation studio, Pixar -- after numerous missteps -- had lost its mojo, and who, frankly, would've rejoiced in any glimmer of the ol' Pixar verve now.
After repressing several urges to walk out during the screening of Inside Out, I stayed until the conclusion. Alas, this is an overrated film directed by Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen that is confusing.
The best Madonna impersonator is exploding on the web right now, and to the internet's surprise, it isn't a drag queen. Comedian and writer Nadya Ginsburg is known for a nuanced string of characters (Cher, Britney Spears), being hailed most recently for her beloved web series, The Madonnalogues.
No matter how TV has changed and will change again over the years, if there is a genre that has no need to reinvent itself, that genre is comedy. The only thing that a good comedy really needs is a small, cozy room full of great and enthusiast writers.
