    Remarkable arrangement of Michael Jackson's classic. A total re-thinking of the song, but true to the original. Intonation perfect, musicians so good one is tempted to think the whole thing is a CGI simulation, but it's not.

In a statement first reported by Axios, the former Obama secretary of state and failed 2016 presidential candidate announced that the book would be released in October by Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s Press. In the novel, “a novice Secretary of State joins the administration of her rival.

    Of late I have been watching what I consider to be some pretty good spy shows. So I am going to list them. I have ROKU and most of these I found available on streaming channels. Epix Channel: Here is found two really good shows worth watching: "Berlin Station" series set in modern Berlin of the CIA station there. "Deep State": Modern day spy series set in the U.S., England, and the Middle East. The plot is pretty believable and concerns the Military Industrial Complex. On Showtime I have been binge watching "Homeland". Great show and plot, I have just...

    Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them."

  • Review: ‘Hunter Killer’ Explores the Depths of Geopolitics

    New York Times ^ | 10/25/18 | Ben Kenigsberg
    In “Hunter Killer,” ordinary alliances are suddenly upended and the United States Navy must do whatever it can to protect the interests of the Russian president. No, it’s not a documentary; it’s a submarine movie. Sent to find an American sub that appears to have sunk in Russian waters, Joe Glass (Gerard Butler), the captain of another American sub, quickly realizes that this was no ordinary sinking. A Russian vessel that plummeted alongside the missing American one was sabotaged, not torpedoed. Above ground, the Russian defense minister (Michael Gor) is staging a coup. He’s taken the Russian president (Alexander Diachenko)...

    EW ^ | August 20, 2018
    The Eagles have flown past Michael Jackson’s Thriller to take the record for the best-selling album of all time. Recording Industry Association of America confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday that the band’s 1976 compilation album, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975), has been certified 38x platinum, which means sales and streams of the album have reached 38 million copies. That officially puts it ahead of Thriller, which has been certified 33x platinum. That’s not even the limit of the Eagles’ record-selling dominance. In addition to grabbing the No. 1 spot, the band also has the third-best-selling album of all time:...

    MSNBC's erratic Hardball host, Chris Matthews, has again gone off the deep end with his nonsense talk about the Constitution's three-fifths clause. He's claiming that conservatives believe black people are, or once were, only three-fifths of a person. Why does a group of people that always loses elections or tends to do lately, why do they call themselves American people because - do they still count blacks as three-fifths? Three-fifths of a vote?

    The new Ethan Hawke thriller The Purge was number one at the box office during its opening weekend, but critics are slamming the film for its thinly veiled commentary against the National Rifle Association and Tea Party groups. The plot brings moviegoers to the near future where in 2022 a new regime has come to America. The "New Founders" have taken over the country and practically eliminated unemployment crime, and want. One of the ways this new political movement has brought on such an idyllic society is to allow one night a year when any and all violence, even murder,...

    Fiction writing is a far tougher road to travel than op-ed; ask anyone who's tried it. As satisfying as it can be artistically, its practical frustrations can make the aspiring fictioneer wonder why he didn't put his spare time into something constructive, like teaching manatees to tap-dance. Many fiction writers claim to write for the sheer pleasure of it. Some claim they only write for the revenue: "to buy groceries," as the late Robert A. Heinlein put it. But all of us, without exception, write to be read. Anyone who claims otherwise deserves no more of your time. Thus, it...

    (June 15) -- If you aren't the least bit concerned about the health of America's freedoms, you are either a) in a multiyear-long drug induced coma, B) Sean Penn, or C) dead. And you've definitely never heard of Overton's Window. The Overton Window is a political theory developed by the late Joseph Overton, a brilliant public policy strategist and ardent free-marketer. Overton observed that "when public policies in a given area (education, health care) are arranged from freest to least free, only a relatively narrow window of options will be considered politically acceptable." The theory says the window will gradually...

    COLOGNE, Germany (AFP) – Huge effigies of US President Barack Obama and bankers made up as zombies from Michael Jackson's famous "Thriller" video starred in Germany's biggest carnival procession here on Monday. More than a million people braved the snow to line the route of the seven-kilometre (four-mile) parade, where revellers traditionally poke fun at current events and enjoy tonnes of sweets hurled from the travelling floats. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's alleged night with a call girl was rewarded with a huge figure showing a beaming premier surrounded by breasts. Obama's controversial Nobel Prize was also the butt of...
