Oh brother, where art the Coen Brothers, you ask? That question will be answered after viewing “The Ladykillers.” Filled with their typical shenanigans, the film is clearly a product of Joel and Ethan Coen (who are also responsible for “Raising Arizona,” “The Big Lebowski” and “Fargo”), and I would imagine that very few would have it any other way. […]
Sure, people joke that Bert and Ernie were gay, that Cookie Monster would do anything to get a fix and that the whole thing where Big Bird was the only one that could see Snuffleupagus until one day when magically everyone could see him, too, was just plain weird. […]
Incubus is a band that I cannot live without and their fifth release, “A Crow Left of the Murder,” does not change my opinion. Their unique sound once again shines through even with the addition of new bassist Ben Kenney, formerly of The Roots.
The new album is explorative, but all their albums seem to possess some quality of exploration. […]
I couldn’t tell you how many articles I’ve read over the last two years that predicted the White Stripes would be the next saviors of mainstream rock ‘n’ roll. It seems as though the same journalists who had once lured thousands of adolescent suburbanites into buying Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit records have now turned their attention to the greener pastures of garage-rock land, once they discovered Fred Durst was balding under that ridiculous Red Sox hat of his and Chester Bennington was about as bubble gum as Mandy Moore. […]
Girl swoons over boy on the big screen. Girl wins date with boy. Wackiness ensues. Such are the events in the new motion picture “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton.”
Tad Hamilton (Josh Duhamel) is a movie star heartthrob desperately in need of reputation rehab. […]
From the outside, it’s a normal farmhouse. Minus the glowing neon signs in the windows, drivers exiting off Route 95 might mistake the aging building for a residential home.
Fading yellow siding adorns the two-story house, clad with green shutters and complete with a broad front porch. […]
If you’re from New Jersey, chances are you have a diner. Anyone that heralds from this amazing state can give an answer to the famous question, “What’s your diner?” While in South Jersey, I live closest to the Starview Diner but prefer the Philly Diner.
College and high school students gather in diners across the state to catch up with friends, hang out over a cheap cup of coffee or to nurse a hangover. […]
In Mandy Moore’s newest album, “Coverage,” she leaves all the writing to the more capable hands of musicians such as Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Carly Simon, Debbie Harry, Elton John and Carole King.
Mandy Moore has had medial success since her debut with “Candy” and has not been able to find her niche in the world of music. […]
Mandy Moore stars in “Chasing Liberty” as 18-year-old Anna Foster, the daughter of the president of the United States.
The uber-sexy president, played by Mark Harmon, has Anna under surveillance 24/7 by his secret agents, including Morales (Annabelle Sciorra) and Weiss (Jeremy Piven). […]
Beer has been on tap at 100 Homecrest Avenue for as long as the self-proclaimed “resident leprechaun” of Buddy’s Shamrock Tavern can remember.
Bob Delaney, the pub’s bartender, has been serving drinks in the building for 17 years and three owners. […]
New York is home to rock legends and experimental upstarts. New York band Coheed and Cambria, new on the scene, has released a saga-CD while city flame The Strokes – last year’s headliner – just put out is sophomore release.
Coheed and Cambria
“In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3”
What’s a Coheed? Who’s Cambria? Coheed and Cambria (CO & CA) is a band whose musical complexities are surpassed only by the ambiguity of its message. […]
Life after Sept. 11 was a period of self-realization for singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright. “I’d hit that age where I was either gonna go down one path and self-destruct or go down the other path and survive,” the 30-year-old explained. “I had to really look at my life and figure out what sustains me. […]
Outkast just don’t make the same album twice. Instead, the genre-pushing hip hop act released two different albums at the same time.
The much-anticipated double album, “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” gives the duo of Big Boi (Anton Patton) and Andre 3000 (Andre Benjamin) the forum to stand on their own respective feet, making this release a pseudo-solo album for members of a band that is still together. […]
“Anna in the Tropics,” a new play by Nilo Cruz that recently won the Pulitzer Prize, opened at the new Berlind Theater in Princeton.
Cruz’s play tells the story of a Cuban-American cigar factory in the early 20th century. Family, love, literature and betrayal collide in this beautifully lyric explosion of passion and sensitivity. […]
