Actress Lori Singer Teams Up With Cruelty Free International to Help End Cosmetics Testing on Animals
Huffington Post - about 3 years
If you grew up in the 80's chances are you were crazy about the film Footloose (I owned the soundtrack...on vinyl). Chances also are, if you were a teenage girl at the time, you strongly identified with or admired the lead female character "Ariel Moore" - free-spirited, strong-willed and desperately wanting to break free from parental control but, at the same time, pining for simpler times when she didn't question their authority or their love. It is with a bit of nostalgic giddiness that I am so thrilled to learn that the incredibly talented Lori Singer ("Ariel Moore" in the film) is the newest celebrity to lend support to Cruelty Free International and our effort to ban cosmetics testing on animals worldwide. Lori, who was an executive producer of the film Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, which won 3 Primetime Emmys last year, took time out of her busy schedule to support the cause, "I'm behind the work of Cruelty Free International to ensure that animals don't ...

Heavy Hitters To Compete In Charity Softball Game
Huffington Post - over 3 years
EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. -- Its roster of participants is impressive: former President Bill Clinton, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, three Baldwins, Dustin Hoffman, Paul Simon, Jackson Pollock and Kurt Vonnegut, to name just a few. Organizers of the annual East Hampton Artists & Writers softball games are a little fuzzy about when they got their start – most peg it to around 1948, when artists including Pollock, Willem de Kooning and others organized casual pickup games on summer afternoons in their yards. Today they have become one of the premier events in the Hamptons, New York's summer resort for the haves and have mores. "I've played against some of the greatest house painters in the world," jokes reporter Carl Bernstein, making a common, good-natured accusation that his opponents pepper their rosters with "ringers" to gain a competitive advantage. This year's game, billed as the 65th and slated for Aug. 17, is expected to draw thousands to watch writer ...

Jon Eig: Optional Oscars -- 1993
Huffington Post - over 4 years
This is the second entry in my periodic continuation of film critic Danny Peary's entertaining 'Alternate Oscars.' Today, we look at 1993. Picture: Schindler's List essentially won Best Picture the day it was released. Nobody debated this. It was big and important and quite good. But I can't help but feel that the middle of the movie, which features Ralph Fiennes' astonishing portrayal of Amon Goeth, is the best thing in the film, almost to the point of overshadowing Liam Neeson's Schindler. So, though it may seem particularly sacrilegious, I'm going in a different direction. My Choice: Groundhog Day. 1993 was a year of great prestigious pictures: The Piano, The Remains of the Day, In the Name of the Father, The Age of Innocence. The titles alone drape you in a cloak of educated snobbery. So why pick -- gasp -- trifling popular entertainment? Well, something needs to be said for the brand of movie that can play on cable three times per day for months on end and ...
