There Was Some Surprisingly Good Economic News on Tuesday
Mother Jones - almost 4 years
There was lots of economic data released Tuesday. We'll start with the good news: The 2008 bailout has largely been repaid: The US government has recovered most of the bailout funds it disbursed to financial institutions and auto companies under the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) launched in 2008. The Treasury department has just unveiled a new interactive that tracks those funds so you can see for yourself. The Treasury has recovered all of the $68 billion it disbursed since 2008 to AIG (the giant insurance corporation that insured a bunch of top-rated mortgage-backed securities that turned out to be junk): The government has regained almost all of the $245 billion injected into banks since 2008: And taxpayers have gotten back 62 percent of the $80 billion in bailout funds distributed to GM and Chrysler: Consumer confidence is up: Despite the fact that Wall Street is freaked out about the Federal Reserve lightening up on its stimulus efforts, consumer c ...

Achieve Ye This Goal
National Review Online - about 4 years
‘I’m also issuing a new goal for America,” declared President Obama at his State of the Union on Tuesday. We’ll come to the particular “goal” he “issued” momentarily, but before we do, consider that formulation: Did you know the president of the United States is now in the business of “issuing goals” for his subjects to live up to? Strange how the monarchical urge persists even in a republic two-and-a-third centuries old. Many commentators have pointed out that the modern State of the Union is in fairly obvious mimicry of the Speech from the Throne that precedes a new legislative session in British Commonwealth countries and continental monarchies, but this is to miss the key difference. When the Queen or her viceroy reads a Throne Speech in Westminster, Ottawa, or Canberra, it’s usually the work of a government with a Parliamentary majority: In other words, the stuff she’s announcing is actually going to happen. That’s why, lest any enthusiasm for this or that legislative proposal b ...

Bay Area repertory film picks, Aug. 23-26
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Bay Area repertory film picks, Aug. 23-26 Another presentation of the 1975 cult classic film and live performance by the Bawdy Caste. I've quoted Barry Bostwick's gem from a 2010 interview with Chronicle correspondent Michael Ordoña before, but I get such a kick out of it: In my obituary, in The Chronicle, said San Mateo's Bostwick, who plays Brad Majors in the film, it'll probably say 'Barry -hole Bostwick died.' [...] he enlists the help of a high school drum majorette (Tuesday Weld), who's not exactly innocence and apple pie. Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is back with a film about a nurse, a paramedic, a gymnast and her coach who stand in for dead people, hired by the deceased's relatives, friends or colleagues.

MEET RILEY KEOUGH: Elvis' 23-Year-Old Granddaughter Who's Going To Be A Huge Star
Business Insider - over 4 years
Like Rafiki presenting a baby Simba over the African landscape in "The Lion King," Riley Keough was first introduced to the world as a newborn on the cover of People magazine in 1989. And although Keough was born 12 years after her uber famous grandfather, Elvis Presley, had already died, the now 23-year-old daughter of Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough was destined for fame—whether she liked it or not. Apparently the showbiz scion liked it, because Keough has chosen to continue in her famous family's footsteps. First as a model and now an actress, Keough is set to star in a series of big budget films, such as the "Mad Max" reboot she is currently filming in Africa alongside Charlize Theron. Most recently, Keough can be seen playing a pink-haired stripper in the Steven Soderbergh-directed "Magic Mike." It was on the set of the stripper flick that Keough met her current fiancé, 22-year-old English actor Alex Pettyfer. Pettyfer told The Ho ...

Jack Nicholson Movies: Rating The Actor's Best And Worst Films
Deadline Hollywood - almost 5 years
What's Jack Nicholson's secret? Maybe it's the eyebrows, hovering like ironic quotation marks over every line reading. Maybe it's the hooded eyes, which hold the threat of danger or the promise of joviality -- you're never sure which. Same with that sharklike grin. Or maybe it's the voice, which has evolved over the years from a thin sneer to a deep rumble, but is always precisely calibrated to provoke a reaction. Put them all together, and they say: "I am a man to be reckoned with. Ignore me at your peril." Nicholson, who turns 75 on April 22, is often criticized for relying on his bag of tricks, for just showing up and doing Jack Nicholson (though indeed, he often seems to have been hired precisely for that purpose). But he's also capable of burrowing deep into a character, finding his wounded heart, and revealing the ugly truth without fear or vanity. Moviegoers don't always love the subtler Nicholson as much as the broader-played rabble rouser, but both have made him an instituti ...

In a 1971 interview with the New York Times, Weld explained that she had chosen to reject these roles precisely because she believed they would be commercial successes: "Do you think I want a success? I refused 'Bonnie and Clyde' because I was nursing at the time, but also because deep down I knew it was going to be a huge success. The same was true of 'Bob and Carol and Fred and Sue' or whatever it was called. It reeked of success."
    In 1963, she guest-starred as Denise Dunlear on The Eleventh Hour, in the episode "Something Crazy's Going on the Back Room".
