‘This Is Us’ Series Premiere — A Full Review

Written by , Posted in General

this-is-usNBC’s ‘This Is Us’ has received serious buzz, and it’s deserved. I’ve yearned for a low-concept dramedy a la ‘Parenthood’ since it went off the air, and ‘This is Us’ fits the bill. The show stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan, and Ron Cephas Jones, who are all age 36 when we meet them. To quote series creator Dan Fogelman, 36 is an age that can look very different for everyone, with some our friends married, others with grown kids, some who are just about to walk down the aisle, etc. But at our core, we all want the same thing — to be happy. It’s nice to see a cast of all shapes, sizes, and colors, who are very relatable and whose lives seamlessly intertwine. It’s episode one, and I already feel like I know this group and love them. And kudos to casting for this lineup. It’s refreshing to see Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia push beyond their previous roles.

Lady Gaga’s “Perfect Illusion” Video — You’ll Find Her Somewhere

Written by , Posted in General

Maybe Lady Gaga is the “Perfect Illusion,” and not the love she’s now rejecting with angst, vigor, and a good roll in the desert sand in the video. To quote my friend whose Lady Gaga loyalty died with Artpop, “It was all too much, and now it’s nothing.” Directed by longtime friend Ruth Hogben, the music video for her new song is basically a poor man’s Burning Man with little to no sets and drab daisy dukes. I’m not afraid to admit I like the song and I like the video, despite its negative feedback. In fact, I’m actually not a Lady Gaga fan at all, and this might be the first time I’ll listen to her music more than once. But it’s clear her brand identity is in crisis, and she has little to know grip on the direction of her career. Is this a shift, or is a pit-stop before she’s a breakfast egg and a lunch meat dress all over again? Let’s not forget that even though she had some questionable moments, she also teamed with Giorgio Armani for some unforgettable tour looks. Watch the video below. When you’re finished, try to tell me who Lady Gaga is, in ten words or less.

Chelsea Handler Attacks Angelina Jolie in Brangelina Divorce — Inappropriate?

Written by , Posted in General

Though it’s certainly sad to see any marriage end, I can understand the press’s subtle glee with the Brangelina breakup. First, Angelina Jolie is a fundamentally unlikable star. She weirded us out with the Billy Bob blood vials and seemingly broke up another man’s marriage to America’s sweetheart. Sure you can’t take a man that isn’t already willing to leave, but it’s also low-hanging fruit. Longer relationships are susceptible to outside influence by the mere nature of time, boredom, and mundane life occurrences. The shiny and new will always seem superior. Plus, it’s Angelina Jolie, who is likely one of the last remaining movie-star Goddesses out there. Let’s also not forget their faux-family W Magazine spread which even Jennifer Aniston, who always takes the high road, called insensitive. Reports also circulated that Brad Pitt alienated his close circle of friends when he met Jolie, and she forbade him from acting in moves with sex scenes. One can therefore understand her questionable popularity.

There’s one looming question; however, that I’d like to address, and my readers are free to comment with their own hypothesis. Why does the public constantly pounce on their AMOUNT of children? Is it because they’re aghast at the idea that parents of such a large brood can’t seem to make it work, or is it because half of their kids are adopted? After all, six might seem like a lot, but no one comes down on Jim Gaffigan for it. Even Mel Gibson seemed to get a soft reaction to his now-ninth child.

When I saw the video below from Chelsea Handler, who I usually like, I couldn’t help but have a very negative reaction to her “85 kids” remark,which begged the aforementioned question, and she’s certainly not the only one to make this joke. Leave the kids out of it.

Patton Oswalt Pays Tribute to His Late Wife at the Emmys

Written by , Posted in General

Grief is deeply personal for each individual, and though there’s no platitude that will push the pain away, celebrities sometimes offer helpful pockets of wisdom that could perhaps offer empathy and comfort to others. Patton Oswalt unexpectantly lost his wife, true crime writer MIchelle McNamara, leaving behind their young daughter, and Oswalt has been incredibly honest about his personal struggle. At the Emmys, he summed things up in just one minute, saying that “it’s going to be a long, long time before [he] can be the kind of person that she made [him] again.”

Mike Doughty’s New Video — Watch Now

Written by , Posted in General

I can’t say enough good things about Mike Doughty, who I had the pleasure to interview and whose career I constantly follow. There are some musicians who consistently deliver, and he’s one of them. In fact, at any point in time I can play any and all of his songs and enjoy it as if it’s the first time I listened. The former Soul Coughing frontman will release his new solo record, The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns, on October 14. To pre-order the record, click HERE. Listen to “I Can’t Believe I Found You in That Town” below.

Calvin Harris Release “My Way” — Is it About Taylor Swift?

Written by , Posted in General

It always blows my mind how one massive celebrity can launch/solidify careers of every hanger on imaginable. In the case of Calvin Harris, for example, nearly every woman he dates post-Taylor Swift will receive a nugget of fame, because the world wants to know who the potentially broken-hearted man will find as a rebound. As for Tom Hiddleston, it will have the opposite effect. The man was Loki, a serious actor with an impressive resume, and for a brief moment in time, he was that guy wearing a I <3 Taylor Swift shirt at her July 4th party.

Calvin Harris might be talented in his own right, but his new song, “My Way” is grabbing attention for another reason, and it’s that the public wants to know if Taylor Swift is its subject. In fact, he repeats, “You were the one thing in my way,” A LOT, which isn’t exactly a Sunday New York Times crossword. It is worth nothing that man might need a lyricist. When Taylor Swift does this type of thing, there’s many, many more words. Listen below.

Ordinary World Starring Billy Joe Armstrong – Watch Trailer Now

Written by , Posted in General

This is the first I’ve heard of Billie Joe Armstrong’s starring vehicle, Ordinary Life, but from the look of the trailer, it’s going to be good. That’s not surprising considering Armstrong’s taste and shrewd career moves, especially in a world where musicians fade fast. In fact, Green Day has substantially improved over time, and Armstrong made it to Broadway with ‘American Idiot.’ Ordinary World is both written & directed by filmmaker Lee Kirk. It first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Ordinary World opens in limited theaters + on VOD starting October 14ththis fall.
