Totally vintage baby! No, I’m just kidding about that. Well, first off, I really don’t like wearing pants. So I usually like to wear dresses with tights. I have a couple of dresses from the eighties; they were my mom’s.
Blake Lively, who currently plays Serena van der Woodsen on the CW’s “Gossip Girl” and who also starred in the movie franchise “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” hosted “Saturday Night Live” this past Saturday. Expectations were high that she would bring her boyfriend and costar, Penn Badgley, onto the set for a cameo, but sadly for the ladies, he didn’t show up. Her performance was a green light for more television stars to come this season, as January Jones’ previous performance was very disappointing.
The “Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstractions” exhibition is the natural world in its most basic elements. In more than 130 paintings and drawings at the Whitney Museum of American Art, O’Keeffe is celebrated for her distortions of landscapes, flowers, bones and realistic objects that focus on her experience with people and places.
From the moment the lights slowly rise on her staring off into the distance, you realize how hard it will be to concentrate on anything else. Cate Blanchett’s glorious Blanche DuBois in Liv Ullman’s production of Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire,” will probably go down in history as one of the most magnetic performances ever to be seen on stage.
The movie trailer for “Brothers” seemed to promise an action-packed drama that would constantly have you on the edge of your seat. An American adaptation of the 2004 Danish film, “Brodre,” “Brothers” tells the story of the complicated relationships between brothers Tommy (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Sam Cahill (Tobey Maguire), and Sam’s wife, Grace (Natalie Portman).
A lot of people are mad about MTV’s “Jersey Shore”. Italian people and people from New Jersey are apparently pretty mad about the fact MTV’s house full of guidos are making them look stupid.
10. “Post-Nothing” by Japandroids
With only two members, newcomers Japandroids may have constructed the most fun, most unadulterated album of this year. Their debut album, easily marks Japandroids as an artist to watch in the coming years. Check this: “Young Hearts Spark Fire”
When Trey Anastasio, guitarist of the legendary jam band Phish, screamed “Can you still have fun!?” during “Wilson” not a soul in Madison Square Garden could be expected to disagree with him. Friday night marked my 13th, and most likely final Phish show of 2009 and I must say I couldn’t have asked for a finer conclusion. After all, this was sacred ground. The band had rung in 1995 with their all time greatest show here. They had broken their original hiatus in this hall and this week marked their first return since.
The atmosphere inside Mumon in Garden City, which opened in January of 2009, is incredibly peaceful. Almost uncomfortably quiet, but it has enough movement around it that it doesn’t feel like being inside a raw fish cave. This trendy environment, although mildly enjoyable at face value, has some issues that go far beyond the interior decorating.
Everyone knows about “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” as Heath Ledger’s last film, but for my money, it’s the new Terry Gilliam. The former Monty Python animator has been leaving his unique mark on cinema for over 30 years with his breathtaking visuals and madcap sense of humor.In this regard, his latest film is no exception and the fact that it exists at all is a miracle in itself.
