Watch: The ‘Poltergeist’ Remake Releases A Scary Fun New TV Spot

What Are You Afraid Of?

Last month we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming remake of Poltergeist, opening in theaters in August. Today we get to see the just-released new TV spot for Poltergeist that features lots of new footage not previously seen in the first movie trailer. I’ve already decided that I need to see this movie because based on what I’ve seen thus far, this new version of Poltergeist looks like a lot of fun. Believe me, they will never be able to top the original film … but this new version looks close enough to the original to be a fun time at the movies. I love the trailer, I love this TV spot, I can’t wait to see this movie when it opens on May 22 (moved up from the original July 24 date).

‘Blue Monday’ On A Saturday

On Friday night, I traveled back to 1987 to see Dokken in concert. Last night, I traveled back to 1997 to see Orgy. I used to love Orgy back in the day when I was still really into industrial music but kinda dabbling a bit into more electronic, EDM music in the late ’90s. Orgy was the perfect mix of industrial dance music and their hit cover of Blue Monday (by New Order) really made me a fan. I saw that they were playing a small show at the Whisky A Go Go on Sunset so I decided to check ‘em out. I’m happy to report that the show was much better than I thought it would be. The place was packed, the band was pretty on point and I got to enjoy a night of music that I had forgotten I used to really love once upon a time. More »

Watch: ‘Glee’ Performed ‘I Lived’ By One Republic As Its Series Finale Song

The End

After 6 seasons, Glee came to an end on Friday night when the series finale episode aired on Fox and while I don’t really have much love lost for this show that lost my interest years ago, I think it’s worth saying goodbye to the once truly revolutionary TV show. I can’t even get into the all the crazy stuff that went down on the series finale ep (way too many time jumps, TBH) but I do want to share video of the final song performance … One Republic‘s I Lived. Click the embed above to watch the cast of Glee perform the swan-song that caps off their 6 season run. I also want to note that the finale episode did much to pay homage to the late Cory Monteith, who was memorialized one more time with the Glee performance of Journey‘s Don’t Stop Believin’ from the season premiere episode. Click below to watch the performance again, remember how amazing Glee used to be and try not to bawl your eyes out. More »

Watch: Kerry Washington Delivered A Powerful Vanguard Award Acceptance Speech At The GLAAD Media Awards Last Night

Scandal star Kerry Washington was awarded the Vanguard Award at the GLAAD Media Awards here in Los Angeles, CA last night and she delivered a stirring and very powerful acceptance speech on the support of same-sex marriage in this country. At one point, in particular, she spoke directly to “Black people today [that tell her] that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage” to make a poignant point about “legislating love” … she said:

So when black people today tell me that they don’t ‘believe’ in gay marriage (pause), the first thing that I say is please don’t let anybody try to get you to vote against your own best interests by feeding you messages of hate. And then I say, you know people used to say stuff like that about you and your love. And if we let the government start to legislate love in our lifetime, who do you think is next? We can’t say that we believe in each others’ fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each others existence and the truth of each others hearts. We must be allies. And we must be allies in this business because to be represented is to be humanized. And as long as anyone, anywhere is being made to feel less human, our very definition of humanity is at stake and we are all vulnerable.

Thank you, Kerry. Very well said. After you click through the gallery presented here to see photos from last night’s GLAAD event, click below to watch Kerry Washington deliver her Vanguard Award acceptance speech in full and be inspired. More »

Why Are We Afraid To Post Certain Things On Our Own Facebook Pages?!

A few days ago I was lit’rally in tears whilst reading this amazing article on The New Yorker. I mean, honestly. There is nothing more wonderful to me than this, “An Open Letter from Your Horrible Facebook Friends.” I think the best part about articles like this is when you see yourself in them. So when I got to the part that mentioned “The girl who appears to have stayed perpetually pregnant since graduation,” I died laughing and devoured the rest of the piece immediately. I then found the writer on Twitter and stalked him and his friends for a good 30-45 minutes. It was a great time. But you wouldn’t believe the Facebook comments I got from friends who said they LOVED the piece, but were bummed that they couldn’t share it because they had Facebook friends that might take it personally, or might not get it. OMG that made me SO unnecessarily sad! I need to get to the bottom of this, so click inside for more!

Charlotte Gainsbourg Of ‘Nymphomaniac’ Joins ‘Independence Day’ Sequel

Wasn’t I just talking about Nymphomaniac yesterday? And how much I love/was traumatized by it? I wrote a little about how the film kind of made me a Shia LaBeouf fan. But all of the performances in the movie were really strong, especially that of the lead actor, Charlotte Gainsbourg, whose face continues to haunt my dreams. LOVED her, and I will now watch every movie she’s in. So it looks like I’m definitely going to see the Independence Day sequel, ID Forever, as Gainsbourg has now been cast, alongside Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher. Click inside for more!
