Another Bieber fail

In case you were wondering, Justin Bieber is still behaving like a self-absorbed delusional little twit.

The latest misstep by the Biebs came during a recent visit paid to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. You would think that if anything could get Justin Bieber to behave respectfully and think about something other than Justin Bieber for a little while, this would be it.

You would be wrong.

The Sentinel-Standard of Ionia and report Judge Raymond Voet has a posted policy at Ionia County 64A District Court. It states that electronic devices causing a disturbance during court sessions will result in the owner being cited with contempt.

Evil Dead' a blood-spattered reboot

Remake of horror classic ratchets up the gore

Every cinephile has a handful of movies that are particularly special to them. For whatever reason, those films serve as touchstones along their own personal pop culture journeys.

For me, Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' films definitely fit that bill. The wonderful journey of that trilogy (from low-budget gorefest to hilarious reimagination to full-on epic fantasy/horror/comedy) has ensured that the movies have retained a permanent place of affection in my heart.

Dance show is poetry in motion

Robinson Ballet LIVE 2013 at Bangor Opera House

BANGOR The Robinson Ballet's annual spring dance show has always been a highlight of the season for me. It's as much as sign of winter's departure as melting snow or tulips. And they never fail to put on a fun show. 

Robinson Ballet LIVE 2013 runs through April 13 at the Bangor Opera House. In addition, the company will be presenting their Youth Matinee production of 'Aladdin' on April 13.

Film festival fun with LAFF

Lewiston Auburn Film Festival marks third year

LEWISTON/AUBURN With the constant evolution of new technologies, it has never been easier to be a filmmaker. Granted, it's still difficult as heck to be a good filmmaker, but more people than ever at least have access to the tools necessary to make a movie.

With this abundance of cinematic riches floating around out there, it's nice to know that there are people out there doing their best to ensure that these films have a chance to find an audience. People like the folks in charge of the Lewiston Auburn Film Festival (LAFF).

All hands on deck

Art auction to raise money for Black Bear Skatepark Association

BANGOR The Black Bear Skatepark Association is trying something a little bit different for their latest fundraising effort. Something outside the box. Something unsanctioned. 

The Unsanctioned Art Show & Auction kicked off at COESPACE on April 7. The basic premise is a simple one. 40 local artists were given blank skateboard decks and tasked with creating unique artworks for subsequent auction. Other than that one instruction, the artists were given carte blanche to let inspiration run wild.

Portland's 20th Anniversary All-Stars

A look at some of the most successful Sea Dogs

The Portland Sea Dogs are celebrating their 20th anniversary this season. The team's first season was 1994; they began life as the AA affiliate for the expansion Florida Marlins. They remained part of the Marlins system through 2002, when the team switched affiliation and joined the Red Sox farm system, where they remain to this day.

A lot of future big leaguers have worn the Sea Dogs uniform. In honor of this auspicious anniversary, it seemed fitting to assemble an all-time lineup. Here's a look at some of the best players ever to grace the grass at Hadlock Field.

Sex tape shenanigans

If you've been paying attention in recent years, you've noticed that MTV has seemingly gone out of their way to lower the bat when it comes to reality television. Shows like 'Jersey Shore' and the like have turned some unpleasant people into celebrities.

Farrah Abraham, a former star of the network's 'Teen Mom,' has been popping up in the news in recent weeks following some drunken club antics and a DUI arrest. But she's taken it to the next level a sex tape with XXX star James Deen.

Sweet sounds at Sugarloaf

Sugarloaf Reggae Festival marks 25th year

CARRABASSETT VALLEY It might seem a bit counterintuitive to think of a ski mountain when it comes time to consider the dawning of spring. While Sugarloaf is one of the premier skiing destinations on the East Coast, come April, we're more inclined to think about melting snow rather than snowpack.

However, there's more to Sugarloaf in the springtime than just some late-season shussing down the slopes.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation' blows (up)

Action sequel unfocused and uninteresting

It's never a good sign when a movie misses its initial release date. Sure, there's always some excuse, but no matter what they wind up 'fixing,' you can rest assured that you're almost certainly not going to get a classic piece of cinema out of the deal.

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation,' the not-so-eagerly-anticipated sequel to 2009's 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,' was supposed to hit theaters last year, but it got pulled and (one assumes) frantically reworked before finally being released.
