Ana Gasteyer brings the party on I'm Hip'

Doing the unexpected has been a hallmark of actress and comedienne Ana Gasteyer's career from the start.

On six wildly successful seasons on 'Saturday Night Live,' Gasteyer displayed remarkable versatility in roles ranging from Martha Stewart and Celine Dion to the host of an NPR food show.

Parts on 'Seinfeld,' 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' 'Frasier' and other comedies confirmed Gasteyer's ability to effortlessly fit into an existing ensemble and find the laugh.

Sometimes you have to take a chance and follow your instincts. Engineer and producer Alan Parsons, long known for the sonic wizardry he bestowed upon highly regarded and hugely successful projects by Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Hollies, Pilot and others, was made an offer that no one thought he could refuse. It was late 1974 and Pink Floyd was preparing to enter Abbey Road Studios in London to record the follow-up to the mega-successful 'Dark Side of The Moon.'

Parsons had devoted more than six months of his life to helping make 'Dark Side' the beloved classic that we know today. Bringing the record to life was equal parts exhilaration and frustration for Parsons, who remembers longing for 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' episodes to air on BBC because it meant the band would take a break to watch, leaving Parsons some quality alone time to prepare mixes without interference.

With two new albums, a Grammy Award, and the loss of two band-mates (on the same day), the past few weeks have been a little surreal for Marty Balin, founder of legendary San Francisco band Jefferson Airplane and vocalist for Jefferson Starship.

On Feb. 15, Balin and the members of Jefferson Airplane were feted by the Recording Academy with a Lifetime Achievement Grammy at the 58th annual ceremony.

From humble origins in Burlington, Vermont, in the late 1970s to its current status as one of the most popular global ice cream brands, Ben & Jerry's ice cream is an example of the American Dream at work.

Two childhood friends, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, take a correspondence course on ice cream-making, craft some creative flavor variations, open a small ice cream shop in a renovated garage, expand as success allows, designate a significant amount of profit to various causes and charities and eventually sell the company for hundreds of millions of dollars. As a condition of sale, both Ben & Jerry maintained positions on the board of directors while insisting that the new owners (Unilever) would continue funneling a percentage of profit to the Ben & Jerry's Foundation.

Why Ringo rules

With the welcome news that Ringo Starr & His All Star Band are set to play Cross Insurance Center in Bangor on June 8, it's a good time to assess some of Starr's greatness. The Beatles would not have been the group we know today without him.

For starters, he completed the group. They truly became The Beatles when Ringo officially joined the band in August 1962, four years after John, Paul and George began playing together. When Ringo accepted the job, the chemical reaction synthesized by the coming together of those precise personalities created a form of divine magic that can never be duplicated.

Ringo: 'Every time he (Pete Best, previous Beatles drummer) was sick, they would ask me to sit in.'

Farewell to The Man Who Fell To Earth

 

'Come on, it can't be real,' I thought to myself at 2:30 am on Monday. I saw the headline but it didn't make any sense. And then I found the official post on his Facebook page. The thoughts were coming all at once and none of them made sense. 'David Bowie died? That isn't possible. He just released a new album on his birthday. There must be a mistake.'

Way back when, I really thought there was a chance that Bowie came to Earth from another planet. Maybe he just went home.
