Phedon Papamichael On 'Monuments Men' & Making Movies With George Clooney
Huffington Post - about 3 years
"The Monuments Men" gave co-writer, director and star George Clooney his best debut yet as a director. The Sony release earned $22 million over its three-day opening weekend, $10 million more than Clooney's "Leatherheads" grossed during its first frame in 2008. Like that screwball comedy, "The Monuments Men," based on Robert Edsel's book "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History," is another throwback film from Clooney, a feature that could have easily starred Cary Grant, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre were it released in 1945. In an interview with HuffPost Entertainment, cinematographer Phedon Papamichael said that is no accident. "George is very much a fan of that era of films, not just with this one. He attempted something similar with 'Leatherheads.' He watches a lot of films from those days," Papamichael told HuffPost Entertainment. "In this particular case, we looked at movies like 'The Great Escape,' 'Bridge Too Far,' 'Dirty ...

These Men Not Only Created Ball State University, But They Had Great Mustaches Too
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Men around the country are currently refraining from their normal shaving routine, either for "Movember" or "No Shave November." By now, some of those men may be itching to pick up that razor and go back to shaving. But we have some inspiration about the potential mustaches you could have if you stick with it: the Ball brothers. (Left to right: William Charles Ball, 1852-1921; Frank Clayton Ball, 1857-1943; Lucius Lorenzo Ball, seated, 1850-1932; Edmund Burke Ball, 1855-1925; George Alexander Ball, 1862-1955.) The five brothers founded a company best known for producing glass and canning jars -- sometimes called Mason jars -- in the late 1800's. Today, the Ball Corporation has spun off its canning line to the Jardin Corporation. The Ball brothers purchased the land and buildings of a small, failing teachers college in Muncie in the early 20th century. They donated them to the state of Indiana in 1918, according to the university's website, and the state legislature voted to ch ...

Prince George's Christening Card Offers BIG Greetings
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Prince George, Britain's future king, will be christened on Wednesday, October 23rd, and a Christian media organization is giving all Christians the chance to wish him well in a giant card that already has over 4,450 signatures. The little prince is just three months old, but he's made his way into the hearts of thousands of Brits of all faiths, necessitating the enormous card which stands taller than a typical adult.

We give thanks that by bringing their child to be christened they have responded to Your love and to the grace of Your only Son, Jesus Christ. We pray for William and Catherine as they love and care for George Alexander Louis.

28 Very Surprising Baby Names On The Rise
Huffington Post - over 3 years
By Pamela Redmond Satran for Nameberry Swimming just below Nameberry's "Most Popular" lists are other baby names attracting new levels of attention. Some of these are unusual names from traditional sources like the Bible and nature, while others are classic choices that have suddenly gone from dowdy to stylish. Many of these names share a darkness, an edginess that may not at first be evident. It might be that, in these vampire-threatened times, we’re more drawn to myths and pop culture sources that have a shadowy underside. Or it may just be that we’re looking harder for unusual names, in places parents may have shied away from in the past. Wherever we find them, here are 28 surprising baby names on the way up: Asa Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP The Biblical king’s name, Asa, is being rediscovered after a midcentury slumber thanks young actor Asa Butterfield, soon to be much more famous with his starring role in Ender’s Game, in movie theaters November 1.

Most Popular Girls', Boys' And Unisex Baby Names Of 2013, According To Nameberry
Huffington Post - over 3 years
By Pamela Redmond Satran for Nameberry The newborn British prince has propelled the name George nearly halfway up the most popular boys’ baby names list, according to the website Nameberry. George, which didn’t rank on the site’s tally of Top 100 most-viewed names for 2012, has vaulted to Number 52, thanks to its use for young Prince George Alexander Louis. For girls, Imogen, which claimed the top spot on the site at the mid-year mark, widened its lead over longtime favorite Charlotte. And Rowan is the new Number 1 name that can be used for both genders, claiming the unisex crown from Quinn. Nameberry tallies which names attract the most views among the 14 million page views for all of the names on its site. The Nameberry popularity list measures which names parents are considering for their children in the future. Celebrities have a powerful influence on the new popularity lists. North, the name chosen for the newborn daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, ranks Numbe ...

Prince George's Christening Date Confirmed By Palace
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Mark your calendars: Prince George's christening date has been set! Clarence House announced today that Prince William and Kate Middleton's little bundle of joy will be christened on Oct. 23 at St. James' Palace. George Alexander Louis will be christened by The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby. Immediately after the news was released, Twitter began buzzing, searching for meaning in the choice of venue. After all, William and Harry were both christened in the Music Room at Buckingham Palace, so this is a buck from tradition -- if you're looking at Georgie's dad, that is. St. James' Palace was where Princess Beatrice, Freddie Windsor and Gabriella Windsor were all christened (and where Princess Diana was laid to rest). But Princess Eugenie was christened at Sandringham Church, while Queen Elizabeth II's christening took place in a private chapel at the Palace. Clearly, christening venues are a mixed bag, and the locale isn't a sign of the duke and duchess' ...

Put It In Your Time Capsule: Notable Celebrity Events Of Summer 2013
Huffington Post - over 3 years
As summer inches to a close, we look back at some of the most memorable events that shaped the celebrity world from June through August 2013. They are, in no particular order: Kim Kardashian Gave Birth & North West's Photo Was Finally Revealed The reality star's pregnancy was one of the most followed, photographed and talked-about, maybe ever. Every bumpin' look was carefully analyzed, her weight viciously dissected in tabloids, baby name speculations ran rampant. Then, on June 15, Kim gave birth to a healthy baby girl, whom Kanye and she named North (Nori for short). It wasn't until over two months later that North West was revealed to the world via photo on grandmother Kris Jenner's talk show. The Royal Baby, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, Was Born Another highly anticipated baby was the royal heir to the throne. Many comparisons were unnecessarily made between Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian's pregnancies, but on July 22 baby George entered th ...

US Magazine - over 3 years
By George, that's a cute baby! Just a few days shy of his one-month birthday, His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge resurfaced with his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton for a second photo opp. Released Monday, August 19 by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 31, the two photos feature the new parents, their (sleeping!) bundle of joy George (born July 22) -- and, in one of the shots, royal pup Lupo!

The First Hint The Duchess Is Breastfeeding?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Before Prince George Alexander Louis was even born, there was discussion and debate around his mother's decision whether or not to breastfeed. Now, it appears we have the first clue that the Duchess might be nursing. Kate Middleton was photographed last week wearing the "Blossom Knot Front Lavender Dress" from Seraphine; the garment provides easy breastfeeding access post-birth, according to their website. And of course, the dress is now on backorder until September. Back in June, while the duchess was still pregnant, British TV and radio presenter, Beverley Turner, wrote an op-ed for the Telegraph explaining how Middleton's decision to nurse could benefit the whole of England. Breastfeeding rates in the U.K. have dropped for the first time in a decade and Turner attributes the downfall in part to "cultural forces" surrounding the practice. "It’s not cool; it’s not sexy," she writes. "What we really need is The Duchess of Cambridge to get her Royal orbs out to feed ...
