I had to add the lyrics to this song below for my legions of imaginary fans to soak up. This song in its subtle lyrical genius rocked my face off. I use to randomly pick out one line at a time and throw it up on my Facebook page, and without fail, people would read it and comment something to the effect of... "Wow" Or "Beautiful" Or "Hey Wes, who wrote this" Or "I'm sorry I tried to steal your "Return Of The Jedi" Speeder Bike toy when we were kids..." Because the song is hauntingly, beautiful and perfection. I […]
What up yo. I was out of work 5 years back. Found a blog by a girl from New York City. She was from the Midwest, had a drug problem and came here to Metropolis to be in Fashion School and to model. Damn it, I wish I could remember then name of her blog. She would write these long articles about missing this guy, missing that guy, going online to chat rooms and meeting guys who always ended up exposing themselves to her. It was a good read. Anyway, She listened to kick ass music. I discovered "The XX" […]
David O. Russell creates another ensemble piece that has magic in every corner. The script is stellar , the cast is a knock out & the performances from Bale, Cooper, Lawrence and Adams are fantastic.
I want to send out love to the Ramis family, we all lost an immense talent today. He wasn't just funny, he was hard working and brilliant. Ramis wrote and directed many of the quintessential comedy films that would go on to influence and change Hollywood's understanding of the entire comedy movie genre and what potential it could have. The films he made would launch many careers and would inspire the next few generations of Hollywood's a-listers. The news of his passing is sure to devastate many in the film community. Take a look at a few of the films […]
Michel Gill. I walk away from watching the second season of the brilliant Netflix series "House Of Cards", and immediately I wanted to write about supporting actor Michel Gill. He did an amazing standout job playing the role of Garrett Walker, The President of the United States. There are some simply incredible performances throughout this series. The 2 leads, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, are razor sharp here... Spacey is more at home this season, but he was on point the first season also....as was Wright. Here, they are now a combined force. They are Fierce, loyal to each other […]
I could go off here for a while about the beauty of Anton's eye, how he paints with images, how the black and white photography in this film shot by cinematographer Martin Ruhe is gorgeous and the entire film looked like silk to me, but I'm sitting in a parking lot banging this out on my iPad and I need to get back home. But listen. I didn't know much about Joy Division before watching this film. Then as it progressed, and because I have this crush on all things Great Britain (I'm going home to my British SwePea), I […]
Eddie Vedder & Pearl Jam discuss Eddie's penchant for scaling the rafters of the stage during early, electric live performances...and how they all feared he would die:
"Everytime." - Stone Gossard

What up yo. Here is a 15 minute preview of the upcoming Fourth season of Thrones. Winter Is Coming... Well, I'm a New Yorker. Winter has been here a while now with a fury this year. "Nature. Is. A whore." Kurt
I have finished the first episode of season 2. The following 2 thoughts raced though my mind. "Wow." "Razor - Fucking - Sharp." Slick. Rock and roll. Gasoline. It moves like a runaway train. Better do your homework on season 1 before you start. No spoon feeding here. Waiting the entire episode for Kevin Spaceys Frank Underhill to turn around and look at us. He doesn't. Not till he's done with his agenda for episode 1. A few times during the episode I was reminded of the harshness of the characters that we had become familiar with from season 1. […]

Here's a little clip from "Pearl Jam 20", the documentary film from Cameron Crowe.
The "Mama-Son" tape refers to the instrumental containing versions of what would become "Once" "Alive" & "Footsteps". Eddie Vedder received the tape from his friend, former Chili Peppers drummer and future short-term PJ drummer (Yield) back in 1990.
Grease the film musical starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John was a blockbuster in the theaters in 1978, and is simply iconic 40 years later. A feat very few films an claim.
Dylan Farrow originally posted a scathing account of sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of Woody Allen when she was 7 on February 1, 2014 to New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof's blog. I've re-posted and commented on both Dylan's letter and Woody Allen's response. Woody says it's all lies. He spends much of his letter focusing on Mia Farrow, not on his adopted daughter Dylan. This speaks volumes to me. If Allen is telling the truth and is innocent of the charges, or if he is guilty of the heinous crimes, the one common denominator is that […]
Ok. Woody has responded to Dylan's accusations, guns blazing. I read the below earlier...still bleary-eyed from waking up without my coffee from a late night at work, and I thought a few things: First, the guy can write. Second, of all the children that he and Mia had raised, one stands with him, that is Moses, and he makes sure we know that Moses doesn't believe Dylan. Third, he makes some damn good and valid points. Years of practice? Just the truth? He passed lie detectors when originally accused. Mia Farrow refused to take one. Forth, and most important. This […]
"YOU GOTTA KNOW THE TERRITORY" "LOOK! WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK, WHAT D'YA TALK!" What up yo. I used to watch this one with my Mom. I had forgotten the music, why I liked it, then I watched a few days ago...and watching the opening number "Rock Island" (they did a great job touching this BluRay up. Video & Sound) hurled me backwards in time to 1981, being a kid, sitting with Mom and watching this...memories I always appreciate. The opening number to me is gasoline. High octane. Listening to them perform this...watching them perform this...me […]
This is from the almighty Cameron Crowes website, "The Uncool" on Phillip Seymour Hoffmans performance of the midnight phone call scene in his autobiographical film "Almost Famous". PSH "My original take on this scene was a loud, late night pronouncement from Lester Bangs. A call to arms. In Phil’s hands it became something different. A scene about quiet truths shared between two guys, both at the crossroads, both hurting, and both up too late. It became the soul of the movie. In between takes, Hoffman spoke to no one. He listened only to his headset, only to the words of […]

Dave Chappelle the powerhouse, comic genius, and some of his greatest material…
Fuck. Goddamn it man.... what a talent I'm at a loss for words. He was a fine actor. I don't know what he had to do to get those performances out... I don't know how it happened. I just read some trade magazine post that he only had 7 days if filming left on Hunger Games To which I say Fuck off. Who cares about footage. About a film. They will deal with it. Just like the fast and furious movies when Paul Walker passed. I didn't want to hear about the future of those films. These are men. […]
