His own direction

So unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past five years, you know about One Direction. And if you don’t live in a cave, you’ve also definitely heard about the tragic news coming at us all from 1D.

NEW YORK — Madonna, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Jay Z are among the A-List musicians who are co-owners of Tidal, a streaming service being billed as the first artist-owned platform for music and video.

The membership-based service — similar to subscription service Spotify — will provide music and video content that users can stream on computers, tablets and smartphones or listen to offline. It is being offered at two price points: $10 for standard sound quality and $20 for “lossless high fidelity sound quality.”

‘Get Hard’ goes limp

by Allen Adams

Ferrell/Hart comedy mostly wasted potential

Sometimes you see a trailer for a movie and the potential leaps out at you. Whether it’s an interesting aesthetic or an engaging cast or whatever, your curiosity is piqued. And then, sadly, that initial flare of interest quickly fizzles out as the film quickly reveals itself to be little more than squandered possibility.

Van Halen to rock the Waterfront

by PR

With special guest Kenny Wayne Shepherd

BANGOR – In celebration of a 2015 Summer/Fall North American Tour, Van Halen will perform a special concert for “Jimmy Kimmel Live” March 30 on Hollywood Boulevard. Featuring some of the band’s essential rock and roll classics, the concert will be broadcast over two nights, March 30 and March 31, on the late night talk show and marks Van Halen's first U.S. television performance with original lead singer David Lee Roth. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. / 10:35 p.m. Central time on ABC.

As you read this, I want you to imagine a dapper man sitting with a guitar in the warm California sun. He’s singing a song that he just wrote about your life.  

Alright, the song may not specifically be about your life - or mine - but no one will fault us for thinking that it could be.

by Allen Adams

Inoffensive animated film heavy on sentiment

There’s no denying that the overall quality of animated films has increased significantly in recent years. DreamWorks has long been a big contributor to that uptick in quality – not to the level of their rivals at Pixar, but certainly significant.
