How To Throw A Wedding That Everyone Will Be Talking About
Huffington Post - over 2 years
By Elizabeth Mitchell for Brides Obviously lush flowers and a gorgeous venue are some of the elements of a beautiful wedding, but picture-perfect décor doesn't ensure an epic party. Score a 10 out of 10 for overall experience by following these simple yet effective tips that will have your guests talking about your wedding for years to come. 1. Ask for song requests. To ensure everyone is having a great time and dancing the night away, have your guests request a song via the invitation response, recommends Key Largo wedding planner Lynn D'Ascanio of Dasignerevents.com. "Give this list of songs to your DJ, along with the name of the person who requested each song. That way, if the dance floor starts to thin out, the DJ can play songs off of the request list." This pretty much guarantees that the person who requested the song will get up and dance and encourage others to do so as well. 2. Don't let your friends and family talk forever. "Many fun events have been driven ...

Open Letter to the Ghost of Lou Reed
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Dear Lou Reed's Ghost, When I first discovered the Velvet Underground, somewhere around 18, somewhere in the half-space of my undergraduate years in State College, Pennsylvania, I had not yet discovered myself. I didn't know, really, what the strange album with the banana cover -- The Velvet Underground and Nico (1967) -- could mean, really, or why the robotic numerology of the German model Nico sounded so succulent, and even more so in comparison with the New York glibness of your vocal on tracks like "Run Run Run." When "European Son," your tribute to poet Delmore Schwartz, your literary mentor at Syracuse University, degenerates from its almost James Brown-meets-the-5pm-commuter-rail opening rhythm into the sonic chaos of its closing minutes, that's when the angled dysmorphia of the Velvet's project first became apparent to me: Your music refused itself the way Melville's Bartelby the Scrivener would "prefer not to." The Andy Warhol banana on the cover was not the picture ...

'Revolution' Season 2 Premiere: 7 Reasons To Give NBC's Drama A Second Chance
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Revolution" returns to NBC for Season 2 with a new night and time, premiering Wed., Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET. Last season's finale saw our heroes make the treacherous journey to the Tower where they were able to turn on the power, but at what cost? Without giving too much away, it's safe to say that the effects of this move prove to be catastrophic for everyone. But is "Revolution" still worth your time in Season 2, especially with a slew of new shows jostling for the space on your DVR? Even creator Eric Kripke acknowledges that the show lost its way last year, telling TV Guide, "by the end of the season, around the time that we had drone strikes, I was watching along with everyone else and asking myself what is this show about? I just don't know what this show is about anymore." Having seen the first two episodes of "Revolution's" new season, we can attest that Kripke seems to have led the show back on the right track. There are certainly still some extraneous elements, but Season 2 ...

Jason Hughes: The Power Outage Explained
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 1, Episode 13 of NBC's "Revolution," titled "The Song Remains the Same." This week, "Revolution" did something no one was probably expecting. In the thirteenth episode of the first season, they explained exactly what caused the blackout. What a refreshing change of pace for fans of serialized science fiction. It had begun to feel like "Lost" had broken the format, convincing writers that audiences wanted all of their questions unanswered for years on end. When last week's "Revolution" ended with Rachel deciding to tell Aaron everything, it seemed obvious they were going to fake us out and have her tell Aaron without telling the viewing audience. But they didn't. Instead, she told him and us that the blackout was caused by a computer virus of sorts -- tiny machines the size of a virus. They're pretty simple machines as well. "Two commands," Rachel told Aaron. "Absorb electricity and replicate." It was the latter c ...

Giancarlo Esposito Continues To Be Awesome
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
If "Breaking Bad" has taught us anything, it's that Giancarlo Esposito is awesome, and that opponents should never underestimate any character he plays, whether it's the machiavellian Gus Fring or the steely Major Tom Neville, Sebastian Monroe's (David Lyons) right-hand man on "Revolution." Sadly, it seems that the slimy Randall Flynn (Colm Feore) has not yet learned that lesson, as demonstrated in The Huffington Post's exclusive clip above. Flynn has intimate knowledge of both the blackout and the pendants that can be used to power Monroe's vast array of destructive machinery, so he seems eager to put Neville in his place -- but Neville is more than capable of holding his own in a battle, verbal or otherwise. Check out the exclusive clip above and tune into "Revolution," Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC, to see who ultimately comes out on top in this war of words. Here's how NBC describes this week's episode of "Revolution, titled "The Song Remains The Same." WHILE NE ...

FIRST LOOK: 'Revolution's' Explosive Return
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"Revolution" doesn't return until March, but NBC has a sneak peek of what you'll see when Season 1 starts back up. "We pick up exactly where we left off," "Revolution" Executive Producer Eric Kripke said at the 2013 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Sunday, where the preview made its debut. When "Revolution's" winter finale aired in November, Miles (Billy Burke) and Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) finally rescued Danny (Graham Rogers) and Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell), but the villainous Gen. Monroe (Giancarlo Esposito) had the electrical power and the fleet of helicopters to cultivate a high-tech military force. In the two-minute preview below of what's to come when "Revolution" returns in March, there's a whole lot of kissing, punching and exploding. It all culminates in Rachel saying, "Monroe has power. Let's get some of our own." Watch the "Revolution" preview below and tune in to NBC on Monday, March 25 at 10 p.m. ET for the rest of "Revolution" Sea ...

Denette Wilford: It's Only a Matter of Time For 'Revolution'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It's easy to find out what TV shows a person likes -- and, even more telling, what they hate. All you have to do is look at their PVR and see what's there multiple times, being saved for a rainy, really snoozy day. Take what I have banked, for example: "Once Upon a Time" (any episode with Rumpelstiltskin, good; any other one, meh), "CSI" (good, but not absolutely urgent), "Fringe" (not what you think -- my PVR missed the second episode of the season and we haven't had a chance to catch up online), and "Last Resort" (actually, I have no idea why that's there; pressing "play" now). Oh, wait. How could I forget the show clogging up most of my PVR's space? "Revolution." Oh, "Revolution." Sigh. I had such high hopes for the show. It started off so well. Remember that moment, in the pilot, when we first saw the lights go out? Cell phones dying, TVs getting fuzzy, radios becoming staticky, car headlights fluttered, then came to a halt, airplanes falling from the sky ... it was ...

Maureen Ryan: Why 'Revolution' Is A Hit (And Why It Still Has A Problem)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
It's a question I've seen bandied about the Internet regularly this fall: Why is "Revolution" a hit? Why this show? Before I get to a few possible answers, I should say that I don't think the question is dumb. The last half-decade has seen dozens of high-concept TV shows fail, or half-fail for a season or two until they're put out of their misery. Ever since "Lost" was a hit, TV networks have been trying to replicate its weird DNA, but they have generally come up with a series of genetic experiments gone awry, not successful clones or upgrades. We're trained, by this point, to think that any broadcast network show that embraces genre elements is going to be more "Heroes" than Hurley. "Revolution" has avoided this curse, and I have some ideas why it has helped NBC have its most successful fall since dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Over the past decade, I've seen almost every episode of every failed sci-fi/fantasy/high-concept show, and I have the "Terra Nova" velocirapto ...

Maureen Ryan: 'Revolution' Review: Should You Watch J.J. Abrams' Latest?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Oh, "Revolution." How you vex me. To clarify, watching the pilot for "Revolution" (premieres Monday, Sept. 17 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC) is not a waste of time. There's a good chance you'll enjoy the modest, competent first hour of this show, which depicts life in America 15 years after all electricity mysteriously stops working. Given that many of us can't go 15 minutes without checking email, Facebook or Twitter, the thought of being permanently without our electronic pacifiers is both scary and strangely alluring, and "Revolution" wisely plays up the positive parts of this tech-free scenario. Though tension and confrontations crop up here and there, there are also golden shots of sun-kissed farms and bountiful fields. (Early on in the pilot, we see the carcass of a car that has been turned into a vegetable planter. Talk about green energy!) You can't blame NBC for turning away from high-brow sitcoms and toward a show that's a cross between "The Hunger Games" and a ...

Revolution Taps Lost’s Jeff Fahey in an Unknown Role
Boom Tron - over 4 years
At any given point in the life of a J.J. Abrams’ productions, such as NBC’s new series Revolution, you can expect to see actors pop in who have worked on any number of Abrams’ other shows and chances are they will have appeared on Lost. It happens more often than not, and Revolution, though still very new to the Abrams family, will not be an exception. Not only does Elizabeth Mitchell have a starring role in the series, but the hairy chested Jeff Fahey has been tapped for a guest-starring role for the show’s first season. Out of all those who have appeared on Lost throughout the years, Fahey was more than a few viewers’ favorite; practically guaranteeing he will be well received. Unfortunately, aside from knowing Fahey will be playing someone named Hutch in an early episode of the season, nothing else is known about this part. TVLine reported the casting, but failed to give up the goods. It is, however, a safe bet to say he will be playing a gruff voiced man, because that is what F ...

Pearish peek at French satire, politics
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Pearish peek at French satire, politics Drawing on the Cantor's own holdings, graphic arts curator Elizabeth Mitchell has pulled together a compact survey of caustic prints and drawings made in France during the so-called July Monarchy of Louis-Philippe d'Orléans. "Three Glorious Days" of popular revolt in Paris forced Charles X to flee, and Louis-Philippe took the throne under a revised charter that designated him "King of the French" rather than King of France, a distinction that made a difference with the 1789 revolution still in living memory. The new regime promised an end to press censorship, a claim that several publishers quickly rose to test, most significant among them Charles Philipon, whose weekly journal of politics and art, La Caricature, set the century's standard for critical ridicule of power. The caricatures Philipon published earned him a six-month prison sentence for offense to the public image of the monarch, but that did not deter him or h ...

Preview the Abrams/Kring Revolution – NBC’S Apocalypse

  J.J. Abrams, this time with Supernatural boss Tim Kring, continues his streak of consecutive years with one of more buzzier upcoming shows. Not all of the last, see Undercovers and Alcatraz, but they all at least sound good, don’t they? Next up is NBC’s Revolution which is set to show us a fictionalized earth and what happens when a lot of stuff just stops working. Obviously, we go all Mad Max, and to help us through the chaos is the familiar face of Elizabeth Mitchell, who played one of the harder female roles in recent memory, when she portrayed Juliet on LOST (which Abrams produced and is the co-creator of). Mitchell is pictured in two image released by NBC as her character Rachel Matheson (great last name to have for the Apocalypse) where she will apparently mostly show up in a series of flashbacks, probably memories of her kids, Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Danny Matheson (Graham Rogers), and her brother-in-law Miles (Billy Burke).
