    However, on Monday the car refused to co-operate as its battery died. Exiting the 20-foot car, Splash star Daryl bundled up against the chill in a white cardigan fingerless black gloves. She wore green flared corduroy pants and pink, cats-eye sunglasses as she carried her bags. The stranded pair called a group of friends to help, and four men were later seen pushing the car to the side of the parking lot, before the couple climbed into a pal's car and sped off. Earlier this month, Neil posted a photo of his beloved LincVolt to social media with some details...

    This random, motley set of Josh with Lester and Earl is for the true Josh junkie. Sound and image quality varies, because even the best '50s sources lack HD quality -- so, no apologies! The playing is topnotch, IMHO. A few songs don't have Josh on Dobro. Either he was "simply" playing fills, or he was playing bass. Regardless, he was always a joy to hear, or see.

    Riding galaxy-sized expectations, the new "Star Wars" movie is already setting records for pre-opening ticket sales, with still a month to go. But does that mean the movie's destined to be the biggest of all time? Though several signs point in that direction, the outcome isn't guaranteed. The movie is on track to have the biggest December opening ever, topping "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," which took in $85 million in the U.S. and Canada on its opening weekend in December 2012.

    YouTube ^ | 22 Nov 15 | Warren Zevon and Linda Ronstadt
    Linda Ronstadt - Poor Poor Pitiful Me "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" is a rock song written and originally recorded by Warren Zevon in 1976. It is best known as one of Linda Ronstadt's signature hits from 1978. Country music singer Terri Clark scored a hit in 1996 with her own cover of the song. There have also been many other versions of this song. In keeping with Warren Zevon's sardonic lyrical style, the song's verses deal with a failed suicide, domestic abuse, and a brush with sadomasochism. The song first appeared on Zevon's 1976 self-titled solo album. It is reputed...

    For Stephen Colbert, the late-night honeymoon appears to be over. The dose of reality comes upon tracking the last three weeks available on the ratings front. But first, a quick review of where we were and how we got here on the late-night competition front: outside of Colbert's opening week, NBC's Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show have beaten his CBS competition every week with plenty of room to spare. No surprise there, as even CBS execs concede they had no illusions of beating Fallon as Colbert and The Late Show find their groove. But that's not to say Colbert...

    This week is a bit different kind of comedy. Lydia Shum was sort of a female Danny Devito in Hong Kong Cinema. She was short fat and homely and played upon those attributes rather than trying to hide them. Generally she plays a harridan house wife married to a feckless husband who is a womanizing gambler or who has some other domestic issue. Unlike Stephen Chow or Sam Hui movies you have to pay attention to the dialog as the jokes are more verbal and often revolve around puns and plays on words. This is not to say there is...

    Elvis Costello composed “(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes” on a train traveling from London to Liverpool in 1976, before he became a recording artist. Sketched out in the final 10 minutes of the three-hour journey, “Red Shoes” is a surrealist tale about an imagined jilting and the appearance of earthbound angels offering the singer immortality—in exchange for his footwear. Months later, Mr. Costello recorded “Red Shoes” for his first album, “My Aim Is True,” which was released in 1977.

They sang along with tears in their eyes, because they were the ones saying goodbye to the men who were boarding the planes for Vietnam. And it got to soldiers/vets, too. As Jason Sherman, an AFVN DJ during part of his tour in Vietnam, recalled: “Leaving on a Jet Plane brought tears to my eyes.”

With so many spies out there playing cloak and dagger games across the silver screen, it’s not surprising that there could be some creative bleed-over between franchises. Mission: Impossible 5 and James Bond 24 were especially similar: both featured stories where the franchise hero had to uncover a...
