HBO Orders an '80s-Set Music-Video Comedy from David Fincher
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Did you know that at one point, music was just music? Like, you would listen to a song on something called a "radio" and you'd have to make up the singer's face in your mind because it was a purely aural medium. But then the 1980s came along and the music video came into the mainstream thanks to MTV and the awesome hair of Mark Goodman. And then all hell broke loose in the music industry! Why am I giving you a brief history lesson in music videos? Well, I wanted to paint a picture of what HBO's new series Video Synchronicity might look like. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has given a series order to the comedy, which is set in the 1980s and follows a video producer who moves to Los Angeles right at the beginning of the music-video boom. There's a big name behind the show, too. David Fincher ( Fight Club, House of Cards) will direct and produce the series. Starring as Robby, a green director who moves to Hollywood looking to direct a sci-fi movie but falls into making ...

Lonna Saunders: Bold & Beautiful Kay Alden: Putting Words in Other People's Mouths
Huffington Post - over 3 years
That Kay Alden, always putting words in other people's mouths! It started with her Communication Arts dissertation for her Ph.D. at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Encouraged by her college advisers to write about dead people because their body of work is complete, Kay instead decided to write about her passion, soap operas, hooked on since age twelve. Her dissertation title was Daytime Serials as Mediators of Social Change. Why mediators of social change? Often times, Kay found soaps to be ahead of the curve in dealing with everyday family problems with their characters serving as positive role models for their viewers in dealing with sticky domestic situations. For example, a pregnancy outside of marriage. Years ago, in families too often the attitude was, "Ban her!" from the family. Alden feels soaps helped viewing families to be more compassionate in those real-life situations and found viewers looking to soaps for help in getting them through tough time ...

Inside Actor Corbin Bernsen's Flea Market Find-Filled Home
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It's always exciting to get a glimpse inside celebrity homes. We're so curious to get an peek at their luxe decor and to learn about which famous designer they've chosen to help them bring their vision to life. So of course this is what we expected when we got an exclusive look at the house tour of PSYCH actor Corbin Bernsen and his wife Amanda Pays' California home featured in the March issue of Country Living. But boy, were we pleasantly surprised to see that the home, though gorgeous and impressive, was anything but extravagant... and the actors designed it themselves! Nestled in the Studio City neighborhood, the 1940s ranch house is filled with flea market finds and decor that the couple curated together. For instance, in the living room, Pays reupholstered the sofa with textiles from Ikea. And in the kitchen you'll find cabinets made from reclaimed barn wood and appliances from Sears. Pays' even DIYed the lemon art that hangs next to the spice rack. And while we ...

Blake Henderson: My 15 Thoughts on the 2nd Presidential Debate
Huffington Post - over 4 years
1) Americans looked really good. Robust, overwhelmingly Caucasian, pearish, male, resigned, sated. We're now in post-America America, and our citizens are looking the part! 2) Candy Crowley moderated the debate. Asking the questions. Kickstarting dialogue. Setting the tone. And how serendipitous and American is it that someone with her first name was moderating a debate in October? Sweet. 3) I had no idea it was going to take place on Long Island, which is the 17th most populous island in the world and also the home of the Lohans. 4) I, for one, was surprised that both candidates wore ties. I really didn't think that was going to happen. 5) I admit that I was only halfway listening, but I think its bullshit that the economy was never mentioned once. 6) The scatting was unexpected. But welcome. 7) Is it just me, or did this remind you of the subplot from Major League when Roger Dorn's (Corbin Bernsen) wife was sleeping with Rick Vaughn (Charlie Sheen)? That is ...

Game Of Thrones Recap: How Not To Train Your Dragons
Best Week Ever - almost 5 years
It’s Game Of Thrones Episode 16, entitled “The Old Gods And The New,” which refers to both the symbolic ‘changing of the guard’ at Winterfell and King’s Landing, as well as the literal disparity between the Wildlings’ “Old Gods” (The Gods of Murder and Rape) and the modern society’s “New Gods” (The Gods of More Humane Murder and Slightly Lighter Rape). The episode opens with Winterfell instantly being conquered by Theon, thus confirming Bran’s prophetic dream: Theon instructs Bran to yield the town to him and Bran does, prompting the wildling Osha to tell Bran “Don’t you see? It’s your dream – the sea has come to Winterfell.” Bran’s like, “Thanks, Sparknotes, but we all figured that out a week ago.” With this dream now come true, Bran worries, “Uhoh, I hope I don’t have to take the SATs naked at this place that’s kind of like my high school gym but also part of it’s like my friend Jeff’s house, and Jeff was there but it wasn’t really Jeff, you know?

The film will be available through On Demand through Comcast, AT&T, Time-Warner, Cox, Cablevision, Rogers, Verizon, and iTunes in the U.S. and Canada. “It’s a miracle,” says a spokesman for RiverRain Distribution. “We survived the hale storm of atheist groups and devil worshippers attacking the film almost 24/7.” The film will also be available on DVD through Bridgestone Media and Wesscott Marketing—two of the largest Christian distributors in the world.

Akron-based First Energy has agreed to be the title sponsor of the 75th All-American Soap Box Derby.It's the first title sponsor for the non-profit in five years.
