Man Arrested For Reporting False Creepy Clown Sighting
Huffington Post - over 1 year
A North Carolina man who told police someone dressed as a clown had knocked on his window at night landed in jail on Friday after admitting he fabricated the story, the latest twist in a string of such reported sightings in recent weeks. David Wayne Armstrong, 24, described to Winston-Salem police how he had chased the clown into nearby woods, but authorities said in a statement he had lied. He was arrested on a charge of filing a false police report. Winston-Salem police also said Friday it had found no evidence to substantiate a report earlier this week of a clown attempting to lure children into a wooded area by offering them treats. Reports of clown sightings in the state and neighboring South Carolina since late August have residents on edge and prompted more police patrols. In most cases, investigators have found no one matching the varying descriptions of the clowns. function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_tra...

Sarah Jessica Parker Defends 'Sex And The City 2' On 'Billy On The Street'
Huffington Post - about 2 years
"Billy on the Street" took a break from its regularly scheduled obstacle courses and streetside confrontations to discuss one of the most polarizing films of the last decade: "Sex and the City 2." In case you were living under a rock in 2010, here's an excerpt from Salon writer Andrew O'Hehir's review to give you a sense of how poorly the film was received.  It would have been more merciful for writer-director Michael Patrick King to have rented Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda out to the “Saw” franchise, or to Rob Zombie, so we could watch them get shot in the head or skinned alive by Arkansas rednecks. Instead of that, we get something that’s truly sadistic: the SATC girls as haggard specters, haunted by their freewheeling ’90s past and stupefied by the demands of work, marriage and/or motherhood.  Before delving into a game of "Santa's Reindeer or Sex App," host Billy Eichner asked "SATC" star Sarah Jessica Parker how she reacted to the negativity.  ...

Season of the Witch
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The new season of American Horror Story has been predictably psychotic. If Kathy Bates keeping slaves in an underground torture chamber and turning one into a Minotaur doesn't provide you with enough grindhouse fare, you can always be "shocked" by the gang rape or the living burial or the assemblage of body parts that becomes the "perfect" boyfriend. Perfect, at least, in a "Monkey's Paw" sort of way. Witchcraft represents the least outré element of the new season. AHS:Coven nods to the idea of witchy women as threatening to male power and representing a spiritual attitude opposed to the patriarchy of the Abrahamic religions. But this seems just a bit threadbare at this point. Allison Hannigan's spell-casting character Willow in Buffy the Vampire Slayer conveyed all these idea about the neo-pagan movement more than a decade ago, In fact, she both embodied the feminine principle in spirituality and critiqued it by talking about all the "wanna-blessed-be's" she had to contend with in ...

Easy, Happy Halloween Alternatives for Single Moms
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Single moms are always busy and Halloween can add to the stress. Children anxious about costumes, candy choices and keeping up with the Halloween Joneses can be too much. This October 31, you might want to ditch the door-to-door trick-or-treating and try out one of these fun-filled alternatives. 1. Decorate Pumpkins Carving a pumpkin is a pre-Halloween tradition, but it is a difficult task and sharp knives prevent children from really participating. A great time-saving alternative to pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating is to decorate pumpkins on Halloween. All you need are a few small pumpkins and a pack of multicolored markers. Bring your pumpkin to life by using an old hat, false eyelashes, buttons or pieces of fabric to add to the design. Kids will enjoy being able to decorate their pumpkins themselves. Help your kids give their pumpkins faces and personalities for extra fun. The best part about opting out of carving? Your kids get to enjoy their handy work for longer, because u...
