Twisted Sister and Their Superlative (and Surprising!) New Movie

Pamela Glasner | Posted 03.03.2016 | Entertainment
Pamela Glasner

At first glance, you'd think a title like "We Are Twisted F***ing Sister" would be enough of an indication as to what this film is about. But director Andrew Horn's vision was a film for everyone, not just fans, one which would impart a deeper understanding of and respect for the men who lived it.

Michael Sigman | Posted 12.18.2014 | Entertainment
Michael Sigman

Record World co-owner Sidmore Parnes was a man of his word and a man of few words. After abruptly firing his editor, Mitchell Fink, in the fall of 1972, Sid handed me the job, saying simply, "I assume you're prepared to take over the magazine." I was 23 and had worked there for a year and a half.

Some Kind of Wonderful is one of 80s movie-master John Hughes' underrated films. A new band who shares a variation on that name and phrase is quickly making me forget about the two.

David Finkle | Posted 09.20.2014 | Arts
David Finkle

Perhaps an argument could be made that the songs are so strong they represent emotions at moments of great joy or stress, delight or disappointment. But it's not a very persuasive argument. The more convincing contention is that Berns was a songwriter who wanted to produce as many commercial songs as he could and knew that powerful love songs were the most obvious way to go.

There's No Song Like The First Song

Shelly Peiken | Posted 09.16.2014 | Entertainment
Shelly Peiken

The first song you write with someone is like a first kiss. The songs (or the kisses) that follow might be better for other reasons, or you might never want to write another song with that person again. Either way there's no song like the first song. There just isn't.
