Don’t see St. Vincent for its complex characters. Though the cast is promising (Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd and Bill Murray, to name a few), the movie is altogether disappointing. There are definitely no strong female characters to speak of, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the overwhelming lack of any multi-dimensional character, regardless of gender. I do recognize and applaud the fact, however, that the actors do the best with what ... Read More

Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan was just hospitalized this week in Dallas, Texas.

It is presumed that Duncan tried to help a victim of Ebola without knowing they were ... Read More
TV on the Radio released their new single "Happy Idiot" with a trippy music video on Funny or Die to match. In the video, Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee Herman!) plays a race car driver "Racer Steven" who hasn't raced "in a long time." The heartbroken racer makes lap after lap, haunted and tormented by the images of a past lover (Karen Gillan). Karen Gillan (of Doctor Who, Selfie) is seen in different outfits, sometimes cheering, sometimes baking a cake, all on the ... Read More

This is Dilys Price at 13,000 feet. With 82 years under her parachute, she jumped out of an airplane to save the charity organization she founded over a decade ago. She tweets Dylan Thomas quotes. "Daredevil Dilys" is my new role model.
Price first took a leap at 54, around the same time she founded Touch Trust, a unique charity that “...promote[s] the development of an inclusive society through the provision of creative movement opportunities for those who ... Read More

Dunham also touches on the term TMI- and how it's never used in regards to ... Read More

The Sisterhood will span over six episodes that follow five young ladies as they consider taking the habit. This is a big deal considering it will reveal the hardships of devoting yourself to God and the Catholic church permanently (including what is involved in that decision).
This is also the first time ever that cameras ... Read More

I have to admit, it's a little difficult to write a review about someone I have admired and followed since I first got into stand-up comedy. I still remember the first time I saw comedian Sarah Silverman perform live back home at a show in Manchester, New Hampshire, and I knew all her jokes and delivery by heart so well I could say them along with her. I recently watched Silverman’s HBO special We are Miracles (released November 2013) before ... Read More
College Humor needs to stop downplaying the greatness that is this music video! The new black and white short video titled, "Sexually Enlightened R&B Song," can and should be covered by John Legend in the near future (seriously John, this is me asking you to cover this song, please, please, please!). The song is performed by Phil Jackson, who says he will do his lady (played by Briana King) “socio-politically” right. Right on!
The ... Read More
