Andrew Fish: Rockne S. O'Bannon on Defiance, Farscape, Cult, and the Coming Revolution
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I still remember watching an episode of the revamped Twilight Zone back in 1985, white-knuckled as the silhouetted killer from under the bed prepared to finish off the one kid who was supposed to be immune to the carnage of the Shadow Man. That was my first experience with Rockne O'Bannon's addictive brand of storytelling, though I didn't know it at the time -- and given his long list of science-fiction creations, you've probably enjoyed one or two yourself. I'd still never heard of him when the honor students at my high school polled A.P. English class about whether the Newcomers on Alien Nation should have the right to vote. Yet by 2004 when Farscape's fans had amassed enough clout to bring their favorite space chase back from the dead, O'Bannon had earned an international reputation for crafting the kind of mythos that gathers a cult following. "That's kind of the sweet spot where I live," he says during our recent chat. "As much as I would have loved to have created CSI ...

photo credit: Alan Mercer A Conversation with BMG Songwriter, Recording Artist and ASCAP President/Chairman Paul Williams Mike Ragogna: Paul. We meet again! Paul Williams: Hey, how are you, Mike? MR: Pretty good. Thanks for taking the time. PW: Absolutely, happy to do it. MR: Me too, I do appreciate your time. And I'm happy for you, your co-writing "Touch" and "Beyond" with Daft Punk. PW: Isn't that exciting, for an old guy to have something like this roll along? I met yesterday with a guy who writes for The Street and he said the most amazing thing: "You had cuts by Elvis and Ray Charles and Daft Punk." One of the miracles of my life is the fact that I live and work in a musical world where ageism isn't really nipping at my heels, evidently. I kind of like that. MR: Plus you've had a documentary about you and your life that premiered a few months ago. PW: It premiered for the first time in the Toronto Film Festival and then it was shown at the An ...

Celebrity Apprentice 2012 Recap: Puppet Up
Celebrity News & Style - almost 5 years
‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ had its usual share of drama last night in an episode which saw the men lose a task and Paul get fired. But would Aubrey be back? At least it was a fun task: to design two original puppets and improvise with a Henson Alternative troupe. But with one player feeling pushed out, the sparks soon flew  With Lou being fired last week, to balance the teams up Forte had to pick a member of Unanimous and it is Clay who is selected to switch teams and join Dayana, Lisa andPenn.  At FAO Schwarz with Brian Henson the teams began work adult puppets. Lisa was Forte’s project manager while Paul was Unanimous’ leader. But he seemed to have no idea what he was doing or why. That left them drifting aimlessly, until we discovered that Arsenio had a talent for improvisation.  Penn was too tall to be a puppeteer so he had to host. Lisa is told by Clay to put on a Spanish accent, which offended Dayana. Lisa tried to get her involved in cutting and pasting wardrobes but the ...
