Liz & Dick, Lindsanity’s (aka Lindsay Lohan) latest attempt at relevance, was an interesting mini-biopic about the love affair between the glamorous Elizabeth Taylor and her co-star/husband Richard Burton. A Lifetime original movie, I was initially surprised at how well-made Liz & Dick was. Compared to the Will and Kate special I reviewed two years ago, Liz & Dick is Oscar-worthy material.
Just in time for the end of my semester at the University, my favorite balding prince and his stunning wife have announced they are expecting a royal baby. After Kate was admitted to King Edward VII hospital in London with acute morning sickness, officially known as “hyperemesis gravidarum,” the royal couple was forced to admit the pregnancy, only informing the royal family a few hours before the official announcement. The royal family was overjoyed by the news. So was the rest of world: British Prime Minister David Cameron and other celebrities such as Cheryl Cole immediately took to their Twitters to congratulate the royal couple on their impending bundle of joy.
Mika’s newest album The Origin of Love follows in the footsteps of the singer’s previous two albums with positive, pop-beats that lift up your mood no matter how down you are. Listening to it on a Friday afternoon, I was impressed with Mika’s latest effort and, despite my fatigue from the long week, his album left me feeling renewed and ready for the weekend. Including fine contributions from rapper Pharrell, featured in the first U.S. single “Celebrate,” the album is shaped by Daft Punk influences that distinguish it ever so slightly from his two previous efforts, Life in Cartoon Motion and The Boy Who Knew Too Much.
Wahoo wow: University graduate James Eysenbach was recently named Cosmopolitan’s Bachelor of the Year for the state of Virginia. Though he lost the national title and $10,000 prize to Louisiana Bachelor of the year Ryan Chenevert when results were announced last Thursday, Eysenbach is still a swoon-inducing prospect for anyone in search of a Virginian gentleman.
Just in time for Halloween comes ABC’s bone-chilling new series 666 Park Avenue. Premiering Sept. 30 to almost 7 million viewers, the show’s focus is the Drake, an upscale hotel located on 999 Park Avenue — the address appears as a 666 when the light casts a tricky shadow on the address plaque in the first episode. Centering around Henry Martin (Dave Annable) and Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor) as they take on positions managing the swanky hotel, the show’s supernatural elements surface as Jane begins to unravel the building’s dark secrets.
Kate Middleton is known for her squeaky-clean image, mega-watt smile, classy yet fashion-forward outfits — and of course, her husband, the adorably balding Prince William. So imagine the world’s shock and dismay when photos surfaced of the Duchess of Cambridge not only topless, but commando!
Matthew Perry is back on the air on NBC’s new series Go On, which follows the life of sportscaster Ryan King, who is forced into group therapy to deal with the recent death of his wife. The show, which premiered last Tuesday to almost 10 million viewers, is shaping up to be one of the fall’s biggest hits. As the episodes are only around 20 minutes each, this kooky, unconventional series is a must-watch for any college student who wants a break from the endless reading and paper writing that lie ahead this semester.
This summer has been a relatively quiet one in terms of celebrity scandals, and I blame the Olympics. With everyone obsessing about the brawny but not-so-brainy Ryan Lochte, it’s not a surprise that people couldn’t handle more than the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal (which honestly, did not surprise me in the least). Hence, after the closing ceremonies ended it was only a matter of time before the rumor mill started turning again. And, considering the summer’s London Olympic theme, what better place to start than an English prince’s risqué photo shoot!
There are some summer fashion trends that never get old and others that are forgotten as soon as fall rolls around. New trends in women’s fashion will, I hope, be of the latter, more fleeting variety, since many recent looks have traded attractiveness for the sake of the high fashion.
As I attempted to pack for Spring Break last Friday I turned on the television for background noise. To my surprise, an Ace Ventura special movie event was playing, and naturally, I dropped whatever clothes I was holding to give it my undivided attention. Ace Ventura was a part of my childhood I rarely get the opportunity to revisit, and the trip down memory lane was worth putting packing off to the last second.
Shame, the new movie directed by Steve McQueen (Hunger), certainly keeps your attention, but not for the reasons you may expect. Shame offers a broad social commentary which reflects the emotions felt by both the characters and the audience. Everyone has secrets and everyone feels shame. The question is, how far are you willing to go to hide them before they catch up with you?
I Just Want My Pants Back, a new MTV series which premiered last August but began airing regularly this February, is the latest show to ruffle the feathers of the watchdog group Parents Television Council (PTC). Focusing on the lives of four post-grads living in Brooklyn, IJWMPB regularly depicts promiscuity and drug use, which, despite the fact the characters are firmly in the realm of adulthood, has the PTC up in arms.
Thankfully. spring is almost here. And that means it is time to "spring clean" our wardrobes. Get ready, everyone. It's in with the new trends and out with the old. This spring expect flowery prints and bold colors - but never at the same time - paired with simple, understated outfits.
"It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights/ It's time to meet the Muppets on The Muppet Show tonight!" The infectious theme song for the iconic Jim Henson show gets the big-screen treatment as Kermit the Frog and the gang reunite for the first time in 12 years. Their latest adventure, The Muppets, garnered a great deal of buzz before its Nov. 23 nationwide release - and with a 98 percent positive score on ratings aggregate Rottentomatoes.com, fans should expect to hear about the furry friends for a while. I deem the feel-good film a must-see.
The dynamic duo is back to grace our television sets with its lewd - but spot-on - humor and social commentary. Airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. on MTV, Beavis and Butt-Head provides ample laughs for new and old followers alike. The classic '90s cartoon ran for seven seasons before it stopped airing in November 1997, but this summer, creator Mike Judge declared its triumphant return to the small screen with a long-awaited eighth season.
Four episodes in and still flying, ABC's Pan Am, a period drama about female stewardesses in the 1960s, is the hot new show of the season. Despite rapidly declining viewers - it went from 11.06 million to 5.84 during its four episode arc - the show remains buzz-worthy in the entertainment world and among my television-minded friends. As for me, I'm not ashamed to say that I watch it - and yes, I enjoy it. The fourth episode, which aired last Sunday, demonstrated promise after a disappointing first episode in which there were far too many subplots to keep the main storyline straight. An overwhelming number of characters and dramatic occurrences gave me, and I'm sure the other 11 million viewers, quite a lot of confusion. Despite my initial reluctance, it took only a couple more episodes for me to start to keep up with the storyline and even become emotionally invested in the characters.
A great loss to the University community was felt upon the passing of Gregory Colomb of the English department on Tuesday, October 11. Greg, or "Mr. Colomb" as I always addressed him, was my assigned advisor first and second year. Although mandatory advising meetings are only supposed to be 15 minutes long, I was always in there for at least twice that allotted time period, talking about the different classes I could take, but more importantly, discussing New Orleans, the drinking age, the different rainboots people wore around and if I should go to graduate school or not. Mr. Colomb made a profound impact on me and I deeply respected his opinions and all the advice he most graciously bestowed on me without ever crossing the line and being preachy or "old" about it.
"Now the story of a wealthy family who lost everything and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together."
The Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar on the Downtown Mall is without a doubt one of the gems of the City. I have been hitting up this bohemian hole-in-the-wall for years now, and each time I'm there, I discover something new. Far more than your average drink joint
AMC's hit show Mad Men has not only inspired its own overpriced Banana Republic clothing line, but also a revival of interest in the 1960s that has spawned another two series airing this fall: The Playboy Club and Pan Am. Sex appeal, glamour and a whole lot of cigarette smoke surround these time-capsule series that are sure to appeal to mass audiences and spice up the dreary winter days to come.
