Ovation: Sarah "Paddy" Jones.

04/22/2014 13:24:09 PM

I'm not much of a dancer.  I did, however, take Ballroom Dancing 101 in college.  I enrolled in the class, as well as Intro to Bowling, because credit for passing the class could be applied toward the physical education requirement for graduation and I didn't have to change ..

Diatribe: It’s Not Beyoncé’s Fault If Her Fans Step On You.

04/03/2014 13:02:01 PM

I had a fantastic time at a big arena concert earlier this week.  We arrived early enough to park and avoid long lines at the entrance to the venue, where security guards were checking the contents of all the purses and bags that the ladies were carrying and watching for the most heinous of are..

Something Unusual: A Grieving Mick

03/21/2014 10:37:40 AM

Mick Jagger, the brash, wriggling frontman of The Rolling Stones, dispels all expectations of a 70-year-old man when he performs.  It may be a shock to even Mick that he and his fellow senior citizens are still not only performing with incredible flash, but selling out arenas at their age..

I Am a Specialty Act

03/16/2014 19:41:22 PM

  Seductive as that may seem, and I know that as you read the title of this blog you must have allowed your mind to wander far and wide into areas I never intended when I put fingers to keyboard and typed that heading out. Yes, for some of you that means a variety of activities of which I have ..

A Lament About Movies

02/17/2014 21:28:37 PM

Do you love movies, or perhaps you prefer to call them “films?” Makes no difference to me. Do you love them whatever you call them? I do and I’ve always loved them except when they tried to smother us with all those all-singing, all-dancing, everyone goes to night clubs in evenin..

Diatribe: The Kooky-Weird-Eccentric-Shia LaBeouf Scale.

02/10/2014 12:17:22 PM

This weekend I had the pleasure of seeing a friend star in a local theater production.  He and the rest of the cast presented a wonderfully entertaining performance to a sold-out house.  Afterward, the audience was invited to meet and greet the cast and crew as they exited the building.&nb..

Ovation: Dame Helen Mirren Is Fun.

02/03/2014 12:06:35 PM

Some celebrities have a reputation for being distant, aloof or arrogant.  Others are simply eccentric or downright weird.  Either way, they spend the duration of their careers developing and protecting an image upon which their livelihood depends.  British actors and actresses sometim..

The actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead today in his apartment’s bathroom. Hoffman is considered to be one of the most gifted and versatile actor/director/writer's today and his sudden, unexpected death has sent shock waves through not only the entertainment community but also those w..

Today I Voted for Film and Actor Awards

01/15/2014 20:15:30 PM

Friday is the cut-off day for anyone who gets to vote in the SAG-AFTRA Awards contest and so today I decided that, yes, I’d take advantage of my privilege and I voted. Who did I vote for and do I think they’ll win? Can’t tell you that because it’s like spoiling the fun of it ..

Diatribe: Ridiculously Long Acceptance Speeches At Awards Shows.

01/13/2014 11:01:16 AM

I never win anything.  Some people are just really lucky.  Everybody knows someone whose name gets pulled out of the hat all the time.  It seems that they get picked to come up on stage to help a magician, if a foul ball is hit out of the ball park it lands in their seat, if they buy ..
