How Demi Lovato Helped Show Me I'm More Than My Disability

October 17. The day I was waiting patiently for, for 107 days. To be more specific, the Demi Lovato concert at the Mohegan Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. To set the record, normally I do not go to concerts, or fangirl obsessively for months upon months just for one event. Show More Summary

Song Premiere: J.D. McPherson, 'Bossy'

A mere month after releasing Warm Covers EP, J.D. McPherson is back with more: a fresh new track from his forthcoming album, Let The Good Times Roll. "Bossy" cuts a different groove from most of 2012's Signs and Signifiers, eschewing the Little Richard sax-and-rattle for more riff-based blues roots. Show More Summary

A Q&A with C.J. Valleroy of Angelina Jolie's Unbroken

Young C.J. Valleroy was first inspired to become an actor watching Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt battle it out in Mr. & Mrs. Smith's famous kitchen fight scene. How fitting then that his breakthrough role in the upcoming dramatic feature Unbroken (a Christmas Day release in America) would be directed by Jolie, a woman he now considers a friend. C.J.

An American in Paris Without Gene Kelly?

When I learned recently that so many of my good friends were cast in the upcoming "reimagining" of An American in Paris, I eagerly went to the website to read about the new production scheduled to premiere at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris on December 10, 2014, and to open in New York City next spring.

Interstellar: Imaginative, Expansive... and Provocative!

There are basically two kinds of sci-fi films. One kind is the easily digestible. In other words they're the slam-bam-thank-you-ma'am of sci-fi films, of which the 1996 film Independence Day is a good example. Aliens come in massive starships to wipe out mankind and mankind fights back. Show More Summary

Taylor Swift Begins Again: How Swift Shakes Off the Haters (and Has Some Fun) on '1989'

As regrettable as it is to admit, there was definitely a period of time when I doubted Taylor Swift. Regardless of the praise Red received as the genre-crossing epic of a Swiftian album, I could never seem to get on board with the ostensibly erratic mix of mellow guitar tracks and synth-heavy singles on the album.

A new documentary called Soul Boys of the Western World follows the British band Spandau Ballet from its New Romantic beginnings in London in the late 1970s through an appearance at Live Aid in 1985 and a 1999 fight over royalties that landed most of its members in England's high court for a whole month.

Nolan's Space Odyssey: Hour of the Wolf Movie Review of Interstellar

Here's the dilemma: I saw Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey when I was twelve years old, and to say it was a formative experience is an understatement. The film fundamentally changed the way I thought about science fiction, narrative story-telling, and the nature of film itself. Show More Summary

A-Sides with Jon Chattman: Donn T Plays the Gramophonica; Topher Mohr Funks it Up

My high school biology teacher was kind of a jerk. All year long, he'd constant compare me with my sister. He had taught her three years prior, and remembered her as an A-plus student. She wasn't, but it didn't matter. He would always point how different I was simply because I was sort of the class clown and struggled with the subject. Show More Summary

There's Something About a Jersey Boy

I spent the first 8.5 years of my life in New Jersey. It's where I learned to walk, talk and shit - which is more or less how many outsiders view The Garden State. To them, Jersey is the smelly armpit of New York, where waste management occurs, where the Jersey Shore is a bad MTV joke and the Governor is a bit too large for life. Show More Summary

Jane Austen, Reinvented

Jane Austen may have died in 1817, but her novels have survived more than 200 years -- not only survived, but they've been reinterpreted in a hundred different ways, none more so than her most beloved novel, Pride and Prejudice. The story of Mr. Show More Summary

Movie Review: Foxcatcher - You'll want to wrestle with this movie
