Movie Review: A Dog's Purpose..An Everlasting Film
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Have you ever had to put a dog to sleep? A cat? A pet? Then A Dog's Purpose is for you. And a box of Kleenex. A dog's love is unconditional. A Dog's Purpose directed by the talented Lasse Hallstrom demonstrates this. This is the story of four dogs who talk. And share their view of their owners and the world. Caveat. They all have the same spirit. Are the same spirit. Reincarnation. The first dog is a Labrador named Boss. He is so lovingly portrayed and a bit soppy at times, so much so that you know his impending death is going to be a corker. In a way this is the weakest and most manipulative part of the film because it is filmed in such a story book, sunlit setting that you know the director is setting your emotions up for a tumble And that Kleenex box. Boss's owner is Ethan played by AJ Apa who has the boyish good looks of a young Tony Perkins and who lives on a farm out of Andrew Wyeth country. But after Boss dies, another dog is quickly born on the silver screen ...

1970s Hair Icons That Will Make You Nostalgic
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Beyond the bell-bottoms and platform shoes in films and books, the 1970s was truly a transformative decade. Subcultures that spawned a generation of hipsters, rockers and radicals brought forth an eclectic mix of styles that we believe are best told through hair. From Farrah Fawcett's feathered cut to Debbie Harry's bleach-blonde bob to Pam Grier's Afro, these '70s hairdos echo the attitudes fueled by outspoken youth. To truly understand this great shift in society and politics, we've compiled a list of 16 hair icons whose strands tell a beautiful story. Farrah Fawcett The late "Charlie Angels" actress' flipped hairstyle remains one of the most sought-after looks, but somehow, many seem to fall flat of capturing Fawcett's big, bouncy mane. Pam Grier Grier's badass Afro commanded just as much attention and respect as the strong characters she played in blaxploitation films like "Foxy Brown" and "Coffy." Debbie Harry What impressionable young girl didn't reach for that bot ...

Tim Cummings' Passage to <em>The Normal Heart</em>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Those who detect a thaw in the cold war between the New York and Los Angeles theatre worlds must be smoking something: just because Larry Kramer's Normal Heart has returned to Los Angeles after 16 years does not mean that the Coasts are viewing each other with any less suspicion. The tiny but much-lauded Fountain Theatre in L.A. is hosting, and New York-born and -bred Tim Cummings tackles the explosive lead character, Ned Weeks -- a thinly disguised fictional incarnation of the activist playwright, whose outrage fueled the emergence of the gay rights movement. I caught up with Cummings in between rehearsals at the Fountain and, although he belongs to that rare breed of actor who convincingly plays heroes and villains, sad-sacks and kings, romantic leads and slow-witted fishmongers, he exuded apprehension and awe at the immensity of this role. Earlier this year, Cummings stormed the stage at Disney Hall in the role of larger-than-life Ballets Russes genius Serge Diaghilev, backed b ...

Rashida Jones On Befriending Your Ex
Forward - over 4 years
Rashida Jones, best known for television roles in “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office,” has taken the leap from acting to screenwriting with her new film, “Celeste and Jesse Forever.” Jones, daughter of legendary musician Quincy Jones and Jewish actress Peggy Lipton, told reporters she is usually cast as the “dependable, affable, loving, friend-wife-girlfriend.” But her character in “Celeste and Jesse Forever” is decidedly more complex. She plays the female half of a couple on the verge of divorce who can’t seem to let the relationship end: They’re friends and they care about each other, but they’ve fallen out of love and must deal with the challenge of life apart.

'Who Do You Think You Are?' Sneak Peek: Rashida Jones' Sad Family Past
AOL TV - almost 5 years
"Parks and Recreation" funny lady Rashida Jones is taking on a more serious role: Tracing her family's roots on "Who Do You Think You Are?" (Fri., May 4, 8 p.m. ET on NBC). Jones, the daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton, identifies with both her African American and Jewish heritage, but didn't know much about her mother's side of the family until doing this show. Researching her family tree takes her from Manhattan to Ireland and then to Latvia in Eastern Europe with her mom in tow -- our exclusive sneak peek of their visit there (above) is truly touching. "When I began this journey, I was hoping to find out more about my grandmother, Rita, and I'm astonished by how much more I've learned about my mother's side of the family," Jones says. "As difficult as it's been, I'm grateful to share these stories with my mother, and that the two of us can now visit this memorial and pay our respects to our family." "Who Do You Think You Are?" airs on Fr ...

Financial manager who bilked celebrities gets five years in prison
Santa Monica Dispatch - almost 5 years
A former manager at a Los Angeles financial services firm was sentenced to five years in state prison after pleading guilty to charges stemming from the theft of over $4.6 million from more than a dozen people, including celebrities Debbie Allen, Mariette Hartley and Peggy Lipton, prosecutors said Thursday. Diane Schumacher, 58, of Irvine pleaded guilty Wednesday to 17 felony counts of grand theft of personal property from 17 victims and was sentenced by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Horwitz to five years in state prison. Horwitz also ordered Schumacher to pay more than $3.5 million in restitution. Prosecutors noted that Schumacher entered an "open" plea to the court, which means she did not negotiate the settlement with the Los Angeles district atorney’s office. Schumacher previously worked for Keepers Financial Corp., which provides clients with bookkeeping and bill-payment services. She was fired in 2009 after 12 years at the firm. The thefts, which were investigat ...

ESL For Parents to Help Their Children
Danbury Patch - almost 5 years
On West Street, the _Hispanic Center of Greater Danbury_ is teaching parents the English they need to help their children with school work. Today, a kindergartener's report card might say, "Exceeds Expectations," rather than "A"—and the English phrase can cause all kinds of confusion. "Sometimes I don't understand something," said Malitza Aquino from Veracruz, Mexico. She is taking the parents' ESL class at the Hispanic Center. She has two boys, 11 and six, and a 10-month-old daughter. "My son speaks to me in both languages. Sometimes he's a little impatient. You need to be able to talk so you can take care of your children. So they're not taking care of you." Speaking the language can help a person survive in a country where the predominant language isn't the one you speak. Last week Danbury Patch covered an ESL class that helps day laborers get paid. In a visit to the Emergency Room, Aquino's son had to explain to the doctor through his tears and pain about the plastic toy h ...
