Last summer, FX scared the Hell out of us with their adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan‘s novel The Strain and today we learn that they are already hard at work, ready to scare the hell out of us again this summer with the show’s second season. Altho The Strain book series is a trilogy, I’m guessing that the TV series will be longer than just 3 seasons. The Strain season 2 will likely tell more of the story from book one … I’m guessing. Click the embed above to watch this new teaser for the upcoming second season of The Strain and get ready! The Master returns … and he looks hungry.

At long last, I finally made my out to the movies to see the Academy Award-nominated film Selma in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and I have to tell you — I was absolutely floored by what I saw. For hours after the movie, I found it difficult to synthesize my feelings about the film because of its powerful impact on me. I actually cried very early on in the movie (if you’ve seen it, you know what I’m talking about) and continued to quietly sob for the duration. I studied the work of Dr. King in college but it’s one thing to read about the events portrayed in this film and it’s quite another to see it play out in motion. I truly loved this wonderful and important movie but two very glaring things kept sticking in my mind like a burr that dug into my brain. First, I was angry to see the things playing out on the big screen echo and remind me of the injustice that still happens today. Second, I was dumbfounded that David Oyelowo wasn’t nominated for the Best Actor Oscar because I can assure you, he delivers one of the greatest movie performances of the year — hands down, absolutely no question.

While promoting the forthcoming release of his new movie Mordechi in Berlin yesterday, Johnny Depp offered his opinion about actors who make music professionally and revealed that he SO not a fan of the practice … even tho he, himself, is an actor … who makes music. As I understand Johnny‘s comments, he sees nothing wrong with actor’s who play music with real musicians (like he does) but he finds the notion of actors who make their own music professionally (either solo or with their own bands) a “sickening thing”. Ok, then. Tell us more, Johnny Depp. More »

After years of begging on his part, Justin Bieber is finally getting his wish … Comedy Central has decided to give the young pop star exactly what he’s wanted for some time now — his own Comedy Central Roast. The fact that The Biebs had to ask for his own roast totally defeats the purpose of what a comedy roast is supposed to be in the first place but the kid ins’t the sharpest tool in the shed and honestly, I don’t think that he cares. Comedy Central issued a press release about the forthcoming Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber, which you can read in full below. More »
Less than 2 months ago, back in November, Prince shut down all of his social media accounts (the accounts he created to promote the release of his most recent albums Art Official Age and PLECTRUMELECTRUM, the latter with his new band 3rd Eye Girl) and pulled all of his music/videos off You Tube. Today we learn that Prince is back online again with the release of the new music video for his new single with 3rd Eye Girl titled MARZ. MARZ clocks in at under 2 minutes but it’s a pretty great Prince track. The vibe of the video is supposed to be “retro”, I think. I’m not sure if the release of this video online is meant to signal a return to the Interwebs by his Purple Majesty or just a one off thing but watch the video while you can before Prince decides to pull it offline.
