Celebrity Slam - 08/13/14

Acting selfish

There are certain wells to which we continue to return here at Celebrity Slam. It isn’t laziness, necessarily – it’s just that sometimes, the low-hanging fruit is the juiciest. One of our consistent targets is Kim Kardashian. There are few famous people who can match her combination of spotlight hunger, entitlement and shamelessness.

Film is a predictable, but ultimately pleasant experience

As the summer movie season begins to wind down, a look back over the last few months reveals a fairly typical slate of offerings. It’s blockbuster season – home of action spectaculars, superheroic adventures and the odd broad comedy. And that’s mostly what we got.

The fool, no knave

Remembering Robin Williams

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

A shell of their former selves

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ a bland, boring reboot

Nostalgia is a double-edged sword. Yes, it can be nice to have the opportunity to revisit things from our younger days that brought us joy. Strolls down memory lane are often worthwhile experiences.

Winds of change blow in Boston

Red Sox make big moves at trading deadline

The 21st century has been very good to fans of the Boston Red Sox. The Sox have been consistent playoff contenders for the past 15 years – with a couple of notable exceptions, of course. As an added bonus, the Red Sox are the only team thus far this century to win three World Series titles.

Celebrity Slam - 08/06/14

A Bieber-Bloom battle

One of the downsides of writing a feature such as Celebrity Slam on a weekly basis is the fact that we have little control over when exactly famous people will do and say the ridiculous things for which we so greatly enjoy mocking them. We go to press on Tuesday evenings so that our fine publication can hit the streets bright and early on Wednesday morning.

Humor, action abound in debut novel

Alternate history has long been a mainstay in the realm of speculative fiction. History is rich with tipping points, pivotal people and actions whose impacts resonate long after they’ve become memory. Writers have been using simple “what if” questions to imagine wholly different worlds – worlds similar to, but not exactly like our own – for generations.

Adventure and adversity in the Arctic
