I screened Bessie on HBO and here are 10 things I learned.
John Oliver nailed Pearson on his HBO Last Week Tonight show on Standardized Testing. If you have not seen it yet, clink the link and watch it. I laughed a lot but can't really say I enjoyed the show; it was too disturbing. It won't be funny until companies like Pearson are brought down.
Did you pay to see the so-called 'fight of the century' between Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Manny "Pac-Man" Pacquaio? Tons of bars and other public spots paid a pretty penny to make the event available to their customers - and many say it paid off big time.
Montage of Heck may help viewers see beyond the Cobain myth. That myth, however, has had enormous staying power, and partly because it resonates within rock history.

What Thought Crimes and the case of Gilberto Valle tease out are the fuzzy lines between speech and action, between fantasies and realities, and between life in cyberspace and life in the real world.
As the first chapter of his story comes to a close, and as humble as he may be, the hustle to finally be able to choose the material has come and the second act of his career is set to blossom.
While several other video sharing sites have tried to kill it off, it remains elusive and strong. Like House Targarean being powered by the force of Dragons, YouTube has another mighty animal that mesmerizes its audiences: the cat.

JAs the vice president, Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) was just a heartbeat away from the presidency.
