Dog-eat-dog politics

BURLINGTON, Ky. - She might be a bit shaggy, but Lucy Lou wants to run for president _ and she comes with political experience.

Red Sox Report Card – August 2015

Man – these things are a lot more fun to write when the team isn’t terrible.

We’ve all but closed the book on the 2015 Boston Red Sox (though it should be noted that technically they aren’t eliminated from postseason contention, with the models giving them a 0.2% chance at making the playoffs). It hasn’t been a great season thus far, with a summer full of disappointing performances.

Celebrity Slam - (09/02/15)

More VMA magic

As with anything, the Celebrity Slam cycle has its own ebbs and flows. Some times are richer with material, while others are less fertile. It’s the nature of the beast.

On the verge of no-hitter history

2015 could wind up the no-hittingest season on record

One of the things that we love about baseball is the narrative of history. The game has been with us for so many years that we’re able to make comparisons across generations. But despite well over a century of players and games, there are still opportunities for us to see things that we have never seen before. We tend to be very aware of those historic moments as they approach.

‘We Are Your Friends’ spins off-track

DJ film largely uninteresting and utterly unnecessary

You would think that with the general trend toward homogeneity in Hollywood releases – not to mention the downturn in studio rollouts and a tendency to keep one eye on the overseas box office potential – there would be little room on any slate for films that appear to have little reason for being.

A not-so-great ‘Escape’

‘No Escape’ offers little of value

One of the indications of a good movie trailer is when it leaves you wondering about the circumstances that led to a seemingly incongruous moment. The thriller “No Escape” has just such a trailer. In it, we watch as Owen Wilson throws a kid (his kid, we assume) off a roof toward another roof.

Criminal record

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The thieves that have twice hit a Providence vintage record store took the “Stairway to Heaven” and made off with “Money.”

Celebrity Slam - (08/26/15)

Lack of direction

There’s a lot of joy inherent to what we do here at Celebrity Slam. There’s no denying that we take great pleasure in celebrating the foibles and faux pas of the famous folks among us. And happily, the tendency of celebrities to say and do things that are ridiculous or idiotic or some combination therein shows no signs of abating.

Sequel offers engaging characters, loads of laughs

As a longtime reader whose tastes tend toward the omnivorous, I’ve collected a handful of favorites over the years. These are the authors whose every new work I eagerly anticipate, seek out and devour. We all have our favorites, after all.
