  1. Who do I have to bribe for Annie Lennox to make a new album that is not 1. covers or 2. Christmas songs

  2. I always forget 80s episodes of Another World happily lifted music from Vangelis and Blade Runner, of all places. You wouldn't see that pricey shít happen today.

      Blade Runner was '82. AW was still using it in '89, which is appropriate since much of that music is ageless IMO.

      Ennio Morricone's The Mission soundtrack, as well.

      Yes, which I used to love as a kid. Haven't listened to it in years. Linda Gottlieb gets (deserved) credit for using major film scores when she took over at OLTL, but in fact they were in play at certain shows at certain times before 1991.

  3. I know I hate on Katy Perry a lot as is, but this happened? It wasn't a sketch?

      Did you see that embarrassing museum video she did where her head was in a platter and they had to pretend like everyone knew her?

      She looked like Edward Norton in American History X

      Someone needs to be fired for this.

  5. Cheers. To the FBI.

  6. Ignore Jimmy Fallon and focus on a third of Fleetwood Mac performing with these kids:

      Thanks for finding that. I enjoyed it. Someone get Christine's hair out of her eyes...

      My eyes weren't focused on Jimmy at all, that's what's so cool about it.:lol:  Those toy instrumental versions are so much fun to watch.

      I feel like Christine's hair has been in her eyes since about 1973

  7. Finally finishing Season 1 of Queen Sugar (on Hulu). So good.

  8. Black Panther:

  9. My mom watched it and I didn't, but whatever http://ew.com/tv/2017/06/09/northern-exposure-reunion-revival-atx/

      I used to watch it, so did my parents...I quit after a few years as I hated the Chris and his endless blathering and I never liked the Joel/Maggie pairing that suffocated the show. It probably wouldn't be the same without Ruth Anne (the old lady on the show) and I imagine John Cullum wouldn't be back either.

      That's so sad. 62 feels so young...I hadn't seen Dick Tracy in many years but I just watched a few clips of her ER role (she was another of Carter's honeys) as I remember her from there. Her voice, mainly. She was a very intelligent actress.

  10. Am I the only person who knew Katy Perry was insane years ago

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      I'd guess it's based on how crazy she looks in all her public appearances now - crazy eyes, lost, confused. And her cannibalism video (Bon Appetit) genuinely disturbed me a bit. Here is the weird bit she did for a museum where most of the people had to pretend to be amused...

      I think she's trying to stay relevant. I'll take TS over her any day.

  11. Somehow David Edelstein made his Wonder Woman review issue worse http://www.vulture.com/2017/06/a-word-about-my-wonder-woman-review.html

    1. marceline

      marceline

      I found the review offputting when I first read it. I didn't realize the glaring wrongness of it until after I saw the movie. He really did fixate on absolutely all the wrong things.

  12. I have no idea if Wonder Woman is any good, but David Edelstein's Vulture review of it is insanely inappropriate and creepy.

    1. DRW50

      DRW50

      I saw some say he does that with men too but he really went on and on with Gadot. And the random moment he took to tell disappointed viewers that there would be no S&M when I'm pretty sure 90% of those reading would not even know of the S&M stuff...kind of revealing. 

    2. marceline

      marceline

      Yeah it was really offputting. I found the remark about Israeli women being a "breed unto themselves" just weird.

    3. KMan101

      KMan101

      Sounds creepy. I never read movie reviews anymore.

  13. I'm glad they're both doing so well (she should be winning Emmys every year for The Americans) though he seems a little manic, but Scott Speedman and Keri Russell are hilarious recounting the hair debacle on Felicity:

      Russell and Rhys have been outstanding on The Americans. One of the best series on television that not enough people watched. I'm looking forward to their next (and final) season.

       

  14. Hot Take of the Week: The Roadhouse musical numbers ending each episode of the new Twin Peaks over credits are the evolution of the classic soap opera beauty shot.

  15. Never expected to see OLTL's Deanna butt naked in bed with a bewigged Kyle MacLachlan but here we are #twinpeaks2017

      LMAO to DRW50. And her acting is still [!@#$%^&*], even under Lynch's direction. Thought he might be able to pull some sort of unnatural acting ability out of her, but alas, it was not meant to me.

  16. Twin Peaks leaked on Italy's Sky on Demand. Haven't spoiled myself much but it definitely sounds like a dark premiere in the vein of Lynch's later films, which no one can call a "nostalgia fest".

  17. I don't watch The Bachelorette but these bachelor bios are one wild ride http://www.vulture.com/2017/05/bachelorette-season-13-contestant-bios-biggest-red-flags.html

  18. I cannot describe how surreal it is having the biggest show of my life return from the dead this week and be at the center of a media frenzy in 2017.

      Her playing Cookie would have been laughable and it's not even remotely believable that she was offered that part. Perhaps she was offered a part of a woman who likes to eat a lot of cookies and got confused.

      Mo'nique and Janet Huber should just be locked in a room together where they can bitch to their hearts content.

    3. DramatistDreamer

      A interesting perspective on this. Some may find it provocative. #TeamMoNique

      For what it's worth each character in this piece is a problematic one, including Mo'nique.

       

  19. RIP Powers Boothe

      I saw this on Ryan Phillippe's instagram of all places. It's a coincidence that I'm in the middle of bingeing Deadwood right now. It'll be bittersweet watching the rest of the series. RIP

  20. New trailer for Series 2 of Jane Campion's Top of the Lake ("China Girl"), starring Elisabeth Moss, Nicole Kidman and Gwendoline Christie. If you haven't seen the first series, do it.

      Sundance aired the first series in the US. Does Netflix get Sundance shows after they air?

    2. Vee

      They used to and may still, but TOTL S1 is no longer on there so who knows. IIRC Sundance airs it in September.

      Luckily I have Hulu. I keep meaning to get rid of it and they keep offering great content like "A Handmaid's Tale" to thwart me. So I'll check this show out.

  21. Great new overview (Part 1, anyway) of the Twin Peaks phenomenon in its thread.
