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.
May I call you Amy? I know we've never met, but after reading your book, Yes Please, I feel like we just had a two week slumber party. And after you've seen someone in their hypothetical pajamas, it seems we should be on a first-name basis.
Fighting re-animated dinosaurs, threatening creatures from the future and all manner of the undead may be somewhat of a diversion. But more useful and in these cases more entertaining, as well, are those films which provide clues for dealing with our real life, daily challenges!

This is a cute movie - colorful, silly, good storyline. Well-played, Disney. Throw Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, and Mindy Kaling into the mix and there's enough money to feed a gazillion hungry kids (hint, hint). BUT -- let's keep it real -- it's more than just a colorful eyeball party.
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.
I'm well aware that Leslie Knope is a fictitious character. However, through Amy Poehler's enthusiasm and witty inclusion of feminist principles, Leslie is brought to life. Leslie Knope is the complete embodiment of feminism.
Since the place was reborn in 1979 under the direction of the new Radio City Musical Hall Productions, the Spring Spectacular has been reliably perky, friendly, and leaning towards mass-market bland.
As I watched the series finale of Parks and Recreation this week I was overwhelmed with the sense that Leslie was giving me permission to try and care as much as I can.
Parks and Rec will also always remind me of the coolness, calmness and contentment of a windy summer night under foreign comforters that became my own when I realized what it means to have a favorite TV show.
She tackles these double standards head-on, questioning the way we traditionally judge women. Leslie (and that sweet, sweet hubby Ben) show us how sexist assumptions make a mockery of not just women but men as well and ultimately act as a disservice to all of us.
On October 11, 1975 NBC's Saturday Night with host George Carlin debuted on NBC. At the time, ABC had a program called Saturday Night Live with Howar...
