The Following: What to Expect From the "More Intense, More Graphic" Season 2
Seattle Pi - about 3 years
Though The Following's second season doesn't officially get underway until Monday, Jan. 27, Fox will air a special preview episode after the NFC championship game on Sunday, which will catch viewers up on what's happened in the year since the (allegedly) fatal showdown between Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Joe Carroll (James Purefoy). Sunday's installment, titled "Resurrection," finds some of Carroll's followers coming out of the woodwork to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his death by carrying out a bloody attack on the New York City subway. Only this time around, rather than stumbling around empty liquor bottles and trying to ward off a hangover, the former FBI agent is eating healthily, watching the morning news and going for a long run, all before heading off to his job teaching forensics at a criminal justice school in Manhattan. After seeing the subway slaughter in Sunday's episode, fans might question the validity of that statement, however. Among the many new char ...

Cecilia Alvear: Coming Soon to a Screen Near You: the Saga of the Empress of the Galapagos
Huffington Post - over 3 years
(The "Baroness" and her two lovers on Floreana Island, Galapagos) There are many legends about the "Enchanted Islands" as some call the Galápagos, none more intriguing than the saga of several Europeans who arrived at the archipelago in the 1930's in search of "Paradise." Among the most fascinating yarns is that of a woman who called herself "The Empress of the Galápagos" and billed herself as a "Baroness." It is the stuff films noirs are made of. A tale of adventure, love or lust triangles, betrayals, violence, perhaps murder? No wonder that all these years later those events inspired documentary film makers Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine to co-produce and direct The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden, featuring the voices of Cate Blanchett, Diane Kruger, Connie Nielsen, Josh Radnor, Sebastian Koch, Thomas Kretschmann and Gustaf Skarsgard. As reported in The Wrap, The film is now in post-production and will be released later this year. It was one of the stories t ...

Jennifer Raiser: Cameron Silver Mines the Golden Decades
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Cameron Silver, that suave salesman of sumptuous schmatte, is aptly named. Not only for those silver coins he so gently coaxes out of our minaudieres, or for his sage authority on the history fashion, but also for his hair. Cameron Silver now has gorgeous, glimmering, silver hair. Talk about eponymous! Here is a man who fashions himself with elan, and he hopes you will, too. His new book, Decades, A Century of Fashion takes the reader on a deluxe rail-car journey through the major fashion movements of the 20th century, and peeks into the high speed train of the 21st. Silver admits in his introduction that he first became intrigued with fashion in college, when he worked, "earning an obscene amount of money simply by charming the pants off famous people, and then selling them new ones." That began a lifelong relationship with fashion, which he now applies to his Los Angeles shop and his Bravo reality show. Deftly written with Rebecca DiLiberto, the lavishly illustrated lar ...
