(PCM) There is a new party drug that has been popping up dance clubs and raves all over the world and surprisingly it is a substance that many of us have certainly consumed at one time or another in life. The drug is said to cause a brain-boosting rush, provide the user with tons of energy and keep the party going all night long, and oh, did we mention is is also listed as a common superfood by health experts?

We are referencing cacao, a substance that grows in the tropics, and is quickly on it’s way to becoming a pretty darn “sweet” party drug.  Cacao can be ingested, drunk or even snorted and party-goers are experimenting in just about every way imaginable. It is beginning to take the place of alcohol and other illegal substances at many events, as bar tenders are mixing it into drinks and keeping their bars well stocked with cacao drinks and supplement pills.

They are using the very same raw cacao powder that can be purchased at your local Vitamin Shoppe or other health food store location and it is all completely legal. The raw cacao powder is said to create a surge of endorphin’s in the body which leads to the feeling of euphoria and it also features a high level of magnesium which is responsible for relaxing muscles and de-stressing the body. The cacao is in no way going to create a scenario where someone goes out of their mind, it just amplifies the overall experience of being in a club. User claim the effects of the cacao are subtle and provide a nice, calming effect over time.

Didn’t they always say that chocolate makes everything better?  Looks like they were telling the truth!

Little-Men1

Synopsis:

When 13-year-old Jake’s (Theo Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father’s old Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia, Gloria), a dressmaker from Chile, runs the shop downstairs. Soon, Jake’s parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) — one, a struggling actor, the other, a psychotherapist — ask Leonor to sign a new, steeper lease on her store. For Leonor, the proposed new rent is untenable, and a feud ignites between the adults.

At first, Jake and Tony don’t seem to notice; the two boys, so different on the surface, begin to develop a formative kinship as they discover the pleasures of being young in Brooklyn. Jake aspires to be an artist, while Tony wants to be an actor, and they have dreams of going to the same prestigious arts high school together. But the children can’t avoid the problems of their parents forever, and soon enough, the adult conflict intrudes upon the borders of their friendship.

Directed by Ira Sachs (Love is Strange, Keep the Lights On, Forty Shades of Blue) with his trademark humanism and insight, Little Men highlights the New York City landscape with a story of life-defining friendships in the midst of familial turmoil.
TRT: 85 min.
Country: USA
Language: English
Director: Ira Sachs
Writers: Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias
Cast: Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Ehle, Paulina Garcia, Theo Taplitz, Michael Barbieri and Alfred Molina

Memorial Day, the last Monday of May, is the day we honor Americans who gave their lives in military service.

This holiday was originally called Decoration Day and honored soldiers who had died during the Civil War. Immediately after the war, various towns in the North and South began to set aside days to decorate soldiers’ graves with flowers and flags. Those earliest memorial observances occurred in Waterloo, New York; Columbus, Mississippi; Richmond, Virginia; Carbondale, Illinois; Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, and several other places.

The first widespread observance of Decoration Day came on May 30, 1868, which Maj. Gen. John A. Logan proclaimed as a day to honor the dead. General James Garfield (later the twentieth U.S. president) gave a speech at Arlington National Cemetery in remembrance of fallen soldiers, saying that “for love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.” Afterward, 5,000 people helped decorate the graves of more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers.

Over the years the day became an occasion to remember the dead in all American wars, and came to be known as Memorial Day.

On the Thursday before Memorial Day, in a tradition known as “Flags-in,” the soldiers of the 3rd U.S. Infantry place small flags before more than a quarter million gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery. They then patrol twenty-four hours a day to make sure each flag remains standing throughout the weekend. On Memorial Day the president or vice president lays a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the cemetery.

According to the U.S. flag code, American flags should be flown at half-staff until noon on Memorial Day, then raised to the top of the pole. At 3:00 p.m. local time, all Americans are asked to pause for a moment of remembrance.

Another Superstar Requests Their Release From WWE http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/05/another-superstar-requests-their-release-from-wwe/ Wed, 25 May 2016 06:53:51 +0000 http://pcm-tv.com/news/?p=26506 Continue reading ]]> Cody-Rhodes1

(PCM) Like a revolving door another wrestler has requested their release from World Wrestling Entertainment. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to the many fans who have followed Cody Rhodes throughout his ten-year career with the company. Rhodes always delivered whatever gimmicky character the company threw his way, but the company never seemed to be behind him.

Cody Rhodes is the son of the great American Dream Dusty Rhodes, and the brother of WWE veteran GoldDust. Rhodes has been through a lot in the last year. He recently lost his father in June. He has been trying to push creative to drop all the gimmicky characters like the Stardust character he has been portraying and let him be just himself, but the powers at be would not allow that to happen.

On May 21st Cody Rhodes asked for his release from the company. WWE granted his release the following day, and wished him well in all his future endeavors. Fans have come to know those words “future endeavors” well after reading about all the recent releases WWE has gone through in the last few weeks. There seems to be a lot of disconnect and unhappiness backstage in WWE these days. But it is sad that the Rhodes family has worked for the WWE for a very longtime, and they couldn’t give someone like Cody Rhodes who has put over many a talent over the years, a chance to show what his true character by being himself.

Rhodes wrote a very interesting statement about his release, and it pretty much sums up all his feelings toward the company. You can see his statement below:

ahobbitThe first question to answer is “What do the habits of hobbits have to do with getting to good health?”  The answer is simple.  Everything!

Those of you who read this column regularly know that I find great inspiration from fiction.  And there is much that can learned from hobbits if we consider a few facts, expand on them and use a bit of imagination.

What do we know about hobbits off the tops of our heads.  Well, they are a small people.  They enjoy six meals a day and they have very tough and hairy feet which allows them to go shoe-less.  We know they bake as bread is mentioned in The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings.  Seed cake is also mentioned in The Hobbit as Bilbo’s home is invaded by dwarves and Bilbo wonders about the provisions in his larder.  We know they drink both wine and beer.   We know that they enjoy bacon eggs, apples, strawberries and cream and other simple food.  We know that Bilbo liked to walk.  He even had maps of the shire where he had marked his favorite places to stroll.  Bilbo even wrote a walking song.

So what can be inferred from the above facts.  The Hobbit society was agricultural in nature.  We know they kept chickens, pigs and cattle.  We know they grew apples and strawberries raspberries, lettuce, grapes and coffee beans at the very least.  We also know they grew tobacco but it seemed they used it responsibly.  They must have grown grain as there was bread and cake and you need hops to brew beer.

What can be pulled from these facts that can help with our health.  Let’s start with six meals a day.  Eating six times a day is a healthy habit to get into.  These meals should not be meals that are indulgent in fact I would bet indulgent meals of any kind were not a daily experience in The Shire.  The six meals were mostly rustic healthy whole foods.  Breakfast may have been Bacon and eggs, but second breakfast was more like a snack and may have been whole grain bread and butter and maybe some tea.  Eleveses may have been some cheese and fruit,as the hobbits by that time were more than likely in the fields working by then and would be carrying their food with them.

Lunch could have consisted of a sit-down meal or again something carried into the fields or pastures.  Whole grain breads maybe a little meat or a small meat pie.  We know Tolkien loved rural England and lunch was often pies in rural England one savory and one sweet.  So meat and vegetables in one and fruit in the other.

Tea would be taken at home in the latter part of the afternoon.  We know that hobbits liked 6 meals a day but Tolkien stipulated that with “when they could get them.”  Tea may have been tea, bread and butter, small cakes and maybe small sandwiches.  The richer the hobbit family the grander the tea.  Supper we know was a hearty meal that the whole household sat down together to eat.  We find this to be true when Frodo Sam Merry and Pippin all sit down at Farmer Maggot’s table.  We even know the menu, or at least some of it.  There was beer, bacon, mushrooms and other solid farm fair.  There must have been a bit of meat as the dogs “layed by the fire and gnawed rinds (cheese) and cracked bones.

I don’t think that meat played a large part in a hobbit diet.  First hobbits were small and bringing down a cow for beef would have taken a lot of work and many hobbits to do it.  Mutton and lamb?  Possibly but again these animals would be used for other purposes.  The hobbits would need wool for clothing and so killing the animals for food would take a way a continued source of making fabric so my guess is there was a small amount of meat per meal and none at all at some.  Maybe a four ounce portion an many dietitians suggest.

We know that there were vegetables and potatoes and turnips cabbages and carrots too.  We are also aware id the hobbits deep love for mushrooms and the films suggest tomatoes.  Bread was a staple food, as it is in almost all cultures, but not white bread.  These would have been whole grain rustic loaves, loaded with flavor and nutrition.  Apples, for sure, as well as strawberries a hobbits diet was bright and colorful.  Not completely vegetarian but much more so than what we consume with the large amounts of meat we make a habit of eating.

The hobbits exercised because in an agricultural society the exercise was built in to the day.  Planting, weeding and harvesting was all physical work as was milling grain into flour.  Tending sheep and cattle was also physical as the animals would be moved from place to place in order to graze.  Shepherds and herders had much to do.  And there is no doubt that all of the hobbit food was organic, could you imagine Sam using a pesticide?

We know that Bilbo liked to walk.  We also know that ponies were available but not many road and so a hobbits feet were the main source of transportation.  Also feeding ponies takes a lot and what animals hobbits had were probably used more for work that for puling a carriage.

So a hobbit life style was a healthy lifestyle.  A lifestyle that consisted of hard work whole foods and regular exercise.  This type of lifestyle is something we all should aspire to and actually adapt to the best of our ability.

As you know my goal right now is to become vegan.  To eliminate animal products all together and I am working toward that, but in the meantime, living like a hobbit seems a great beginning.  Now if only I could get Mrs. Maggot to invite me to dinner.

There were some slight criticisms that Bates Motel had stagnated in it’s second and third seasons of the telling of Norman Bates’ early years, but with season 4 concluding on Monday night with possibly the most disturbing cessation yet, things are about to be ramped up in it’s reportedly final turn next year!

2016’s string began with Norman Bates being bought to a mental hospital after being found wandering around and appearing to be talking to himself by a bystander. Norma and Dylan were searching for cinema’s most famous “mother’s boy” but the overbearing and domineering parent eventually got wind of where he was taken. After being threatened by authorities that her son could be taken away from her should she fail to get him the treatment he needs, the two were eventually reunited.

Meanwhile, Emma underwent her surgery for a lung transplant. These were tense times for her father and boyfriend Dylan but all ended well after she pulled through, but not before Emma’s mother Audrey was told to leave the hospital after putting in an appearance. She was only to live a little while longer before Norman, taking on his mother’s persona, strangled her after accusing her of being a poor mother!

Norman began to lose his sanity, inch by inch, by the second and was forced by Sheriff Romero into Pineview Institute after turning against his mother, thinking that she was plotting against him. Initially reluctant to make friends at the facility, a fellow patient by the name of Julian made friends with him. The two inmates found a way to escape, ending up at a strip club. Unfortunately for Norman’s new pal, he was beaten senseless by the club’s bouncers and Norman’s alter ego almost caused chaos herself when she came close to attacking one of the strippers.

The two were bought back to Pineview Institute where Norman continued his consultations with Dr. Edwards, who bared witness to “Mother.” Eventually, Norman managed to persuade Dr. Edwards that he would make a faster recovery being in the comfort of his own home. But Norman was about to make a shocking discovery when he found out that Norma and Romero were married! Norma explained that she only married him for the insurance to get him into Pineview. Armed with this new information, he told Romero to get a divorce from Norma because he was going to get his own insurance. Of course, he didn’t know the full story. Norma and Romero fell very much in love!

While Emma and Dylan were making plans to leave for Seattle, a tense showdown occurred between Romero and Norman which resulted in Norman threatening him with an axe. Thankfully for Romero, Norman took his anger out on the shed door next to him. Romero, himself, had his share of secrets after hiding the money in Norma’s basement that he got from Bob Paris who he offed in the finale of season 3. Romero’s ex girlfriend Rebecca, wearing a police wire, unsuccessfully attempted to get Romero to admit that he killed Paris but authorities were still hot on his tail.

Sensing danger that could threaten the world in which Norma and Norman privately created for them, Norman went downstairs in the middle of the night and turned on the furnace, closing every vent in the house. Not wanting to live anymore, he ached to be with his mum for all eternity, lying beside her awaiting what would surely be certain death for both of them! Romero pulled up late and knocked on the door, calling out for Norma with no response. Finding both Norman and Norma lying beside one another in her bed, Romero frantically tried to resuscitate Norma. Norman came to, finding the now dead body of Norma Bates lying beside him while a weeping Alex struggled to take in his current reality.

Still in denial, Norman was convinced that “mother” was playing with him in order to punish him for all his recent bad behaviour. Even seeing her lifeless body at the funeral parlour failed to make him come around! It was then that he noticed that she was wearing the wedding ring that Alex planted back on her finger that she removed shortly before her death after choosing her son over being with him. Norman lifted it back off and presented it to Romero at the funeral. His response? A swift punch to his jaw. Falling back on the church benches, Romero continued to pound him and had to be yanked away by the funeral directors.

Now at the end of his tether, Romero obtained a gun intending to kill Norman but was met by law enforcement agents who arrested him for perjury. Norman began to tire of waiting for Norma to return. He drove to the cemetery where her now buried corpse remained. After digging her body out, he bought her back to the Bates Motel’s house where he thinks he can now be united with her forever. Norman received a phone call on his cell phone from Dylan! His brother expressed to him that he still wanted to keep in contact. Norman shunned his request, telling him that he will miss him but that they should not talk anymore, and with that he hung up.

Chick Hogan unexpectedly knocked on the door. He gave Norman a casserole dish that he had made for him after hearing of the tragic news. He told Norman he would be back to check on him in a few days time. Hurrying back to Norma, Norman begged her to wake up. Now reaching despair, he ran upstairs and got the gun that Norma got for herself 3 seasons earlier.

Pointing the device at himself, he was about to press the trigger when he heard the sound of a piano playing! A vision of Juno, the dog he lost, greeted him at the bottom of the stairs. Taking a few more steps into the living room relief came over him after seeing Norma, her hair and clothes in immaculate condition, playing “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.”

The camera panned from outside the house, drifting further and further away, the motel and house now clothed with Christmas lights.

Season 4 left no room for doubt that it was nearly as entertaining as the show’s original series. While, in fact, a lot happened in season 2 and 3 it didn’t really feel like it was progressing the narrative forward until season 3’s finale. But the opening of this year’s succession of episodes made it clear right away that it wasn’t going to beat around the bush, and that it didn’t!

With only one more lot to go, and with claims that it would now tell it’s own version of Psycho, a risky move or not, this year begged you not to miss out on how it all ends on A&E.

aveganIt has been a little over sixty days since I put My Journey To Health down for a while.  You might call it 60 days in prison, and it  was in a way.  I have been flipping around between emotional illness and physical illness during that time and my life was a mess.  Some days I barely got out of bed for one of or the other of those reasons.  The worst days were the ones I couldn’t get out of bed because of both of the reasons.  Now, however I am on the mend and ready to start again.  This however will be a battle that is totally new and I am excited to be taking you on the journey with me.

My psychologist has made the suggestion that I go vegan.  This is something I am easing into.  I figure by the middle of June, the change should be complete.  There is also food in my freezer that I do not wish to throw out when that is gone the change will have been made.

Becoming vegan means that you get all your nourishment from plants.  So vegetables fruits grains nuts beans are your whole diet.  This can be called Plant Power according to mu good friend Steve. A  Vegetarian, on the other hand is no meat but I believe dairy and eggs are allowed.  For a while I will be more vegetarian than vegan but the switch will happen eventually.

This is hard for me.  I like meat and to be honest I do not like green vegetables at all.  Broccoli literally makes me sick to my stomach.  So I will be going into grounds that I am very nervous about.  I believe I can do it, but it won’t be easy.

I guess a question that should be answered here is why am I doing this?  The answer is a bit complicated but here we go.  I think my psychologist believes that I would not only lose weight by following this kind of diet, but I may also rid my body of some of the poisons that processed food dumps into your body.  Eliminating those may help do a reset on some of my emotions.  Time and perseverance will tell.  Hanging with this will be the toughest part, especially if I smell bacon.

I need to confess here that I am a fast food junkie.  I did go with out sugar from the first of January until mid March but I did not go with out McDonald’s, Burger King, Arby’s or Boston Market.  Then there were Hungry Man Dinners and many other microwavable foods that was what I have been used to eating since my mom passed away.

I had been living with my folks for awhile as due to some physical problems and the emotional issues I cannot work.  Mom was a great cook and, not to be vain, I inherited that from her.  When she died it was like all the joy of cooking disappeared.  I have been upstairs, I have an apartment in the basement, a total of three times to use the kitchen in the last three years.

Exercise is the next hurdle to cross.  According to my psychiatrist I have boobitrapped myself when it comes to exercise.  After even a small amount of exercise I don’t feel good about what I have accomplished, in fact I feel extremely depressed and hopeless.  This is coming from the bad feelings I have about myself.  Those feelings are so intense that my brain actually won’t let me feel good about me.  Exercise at this point fuels my low self esteem instead of helping it.  Now what can be done about that?  Nothing!  I have to exercise anyway and allow my brain to adjust.  This will not be easy.

I have a lot more to say but for now this is enough.  It’s good to be back with you all and I hope you will follow me on my journey.  Next up is being healthy like a Hobbit.

Calvin Klein Under Fire For Provocative New Ad Campaign http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/05/calvin-klein-under-fire-for-provocative-new-ad-campaign/ Sun, 15 May 2016 17:39:05 +0000 http://pcmlifestyle.com/?p=32665 Calvin-Klein1

(PCM) Clothing designer Calvin Klein has never been one to shy away from controversy when putting together advertising campaigns for the brand, however many feel that their newest campaign has taken things a step too far and are almost pornographic in nature.

We have to admit that the ad does give off a creepy vibe, as it features 23-year old model Kiara Kristin providing the camera with a full up-skirt shot with the caption “I flash my #calvins”. Almost instantaneous the ad began receiving a ton of backlash via social media with some even accusing the brand of promoting pedophilia.

Many just found the ad to be gross and in poor taste as they feel it shows that this kind of behavior is acceptable for young women.… Full Story

(PCM) Clothing designer Calvin Klein has never been one to shy away from controversy when putting together advertising campaigns for the brand, however many feel that their newest campaign has taken things a step too far and are almost pornographic in nature.

We have to admit that the ad does give off a creepy vibe, as it features 23-year old model Kiara Kristin providing the camera with a full up-skirt shot with the caption “I flash my #calvins”. Almost instantaneous the ad began receiving a ton of backlash via social media with some even accusing the brand of promoting pedophilia.

Many just found the ad to be gross and in poor taste as they feel it shows that this kind of behavior is acceptable for young women. Kylie Jenner is another model who has recently been featured in Calvin Klein ads of a provocative nature as she is seen with her fists shoved down the front of a pair of Calvin Klein underwear and another features her in an undershirt gripping a blood orange that looks creepily similar to a woman’s vagina.

Calvin-Klein2 Calvin-Klein3

There are those that are defending the ad campaign claiming that women are often the victims of up-skirt shots without their knowledge or permission and that Kristin knowing posed for the image and was paid for the campaign. Either way it is has sparked up a huge debate online with people weighing with their opinions on both sides.

What do you think of Calvin Klein’s ad campaign?  Creepy or creative?

Peacock

(PCM) Talk about stone cold, Mr. P, a love lorn peacock who resides in New Orleans, LA, was recently captured on camera attempting to hilariously woo a ceramic swan lawn ornament.

The video of Mr. P’s failed love attempt has since gone viral, as the video show’s Mr. P prancing around his intended mate with his gorgeous plumage held high. Ceramic swan was having none of his advances, because you know she, is well … that whole ceramic thing!  Either way Mr. P, the peacock’s attempt is quite adorable and perhaps we can work on finding him another lover, one that will perhaps be a bit more open to his advances!

There Is One Particular Starbucks Where No Names Are Written On Cups, Any Guesses Where It Is? http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/05/there-is-one-particular-starbucks-where-no-names-are-written-on-cups-any-guesses-where-it-is/ Sun, 15 May 2016 14:26:37 +0000 http://amyth.com/?p=3055 (PCM) One of the busiest Starbucks locations also happens to be one where the baristas are sworn to secrecy and no names are ever written on cups.

(PCM) One of the busiest Starbucks locations also happens to be one where the baristas are sworn to secrecy and no names are ever written on cups. It seems the CIA headquarters has it’s very own Starbucks location in Langley, VA. In fact, it is even mysteriously referred to only as “Store Number 1” on customer receipts.

According to one barista, who obviously wishes to remain anonymous, the no names on the cups policy for this particular location is incredibly frustrating as it happens to be an incredibly busy store and the line would move twice as fast if they were allowed to identify their customers. The barista added that often times the line is so long that it wraps around the hallway outside.

It is said that visibly this Starbucks looks exactly the same as all the others, however there are definitely some added security measures. It is a place where the CIA often will conduct job/recruitment interviews and all nine baristas that work in the location had to undergo significant background checks and a particularly in-depth interview process.

They are to tell their bosses immediately if anyone who enters the establishment begins asking too many questions about their job, as they are only allowed to say they work in a federal building. According to the Washington Post, the location is sometimes referred to as “Stealthy Starbucks” and the baristas are accompanied by CIA “minders” if they must leave their work area for any reason during a shift and they are required to leave their smartphones in the car for security purposes. So much for playing a little Candy Crush in their downtime!

One can certainly see why this would be one of the busiest Starbucks locations in the country, as it appears that caffeine and covert operations and analysis seemingly go hand in hand.

(PCM) It is a sad time of year for TV fans, as we learn the untimely fate of some of our favorite shows. We must face the reality that although we may love them, some shows have been ultimately given the ax. We are especially sad to see that ABC’s Nashville and The Muppets didn’t make the cut, but here’s hoping that they will find a home at another network, as rumor has it, Nashville is being shopped around.

Below you can find a complete list of the cancelled TV shows for the 2016-2017 season broken down by network:

ABC
Of Kings and Prophets (was pulled after only two episodes)
The Family (after 1 season)
Blood and Oil (after 1 season)
The Muppets (after 1 season)
Wicked City (after 1 season)
The Whispers (after 1 season)
Agent Carter (after 2 seasons)
Galavant (after 2 seasons)
Nashville (after 4 seasons)
Castle (after 8 seasons)

CBS
Angel from Hell (after 1 season)
CSI: Cyber (after 1 season)
Extant (after 2 seasons)
Under the Dome (after 3 seasons)
Mike & Molly (after 6 season)
The Good Wife (after 7 seasons)
Person of Interest (after 5 seasons)

CW
Containment (after 1 season, was initially announced to be limited.)
Beauty and the Beast (after 4 seasons)

FOX
Grandfathered (after 1 season)
The Grinder (after 1 season)
Bordertown (after 1 season)
Minority Report (after 1 season)
Second Chance (after 1 season)
Knock Knock Live (after 1 season)
Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life (after 1 season)
American Idol (after 15 seasons)

NBC
Heroes Reborn (after 1 season)
The Player (after 1 season)
You, Me, and the Apocalypse (after 1 season)
Truth Be Told (after 1 season)
Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris (after 1 season)
Mr. Robinson (after 1 season)

Some shows still remain in limbo with no announcements being made about renewal or cancellation such as “Limitless” and “Undercover Boss” on CBS, “The X-Files” on FOX and “The Last Man Standing” on ABC. So perhaps we can hold out some hope…we are looking at you FOX….please give us some more of The X-Files!

(PCM) Kevin Smith the man behind Clerks and Dogma is back at it again. This time he brings us Yoga Hosers. The film will hit theaters on July 29th. The movie will be a teen comedy that follows Colleen Collette and Colleen Mckenzie, played by Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith, who are faced with an evil force.

Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp are the daughters of Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp. This is the second film in Smith’s, “True North Trilogy.” Johnny Depp will return as man-hunter Guy Lapointe. We first saw Depp portray this character in 2014’s Tusk. Depp under heavy make-up is hardly recognizable as this character, but his dialogue is hilarious.

The movie recently was in the press after the MPAA retracted their R rating and gave the film a PG13 rating. Smith has described the movie as a “kid’s movie.” The film will center on the Colleens who work at a convenience store and love yoga and their cellphones. The two sophomores get invited to a Senior party by a local hottie. But before they can go to the party they must battle an ancient evil that has been buried under the store. The girls team up with Guy Lapointe to battle this ancient evil and fight for their lives.

The upcoming release of “Fury” marks the first new music that we’ve heard from Sick Puppies in nearly two years and to say we are excited is an understatement.

John Carpenter’s Best Horror Works: A Countdown http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/05/john-carpenters-best-horror-works-a-countdown/ Tue, 10 May 2016 20:02:38 +0000 http://www.ageofthenerd.com/?p=7248 It has been announced that 68 year old legendary horror director, John Carpenter will be headlining the Simple Things Festival in Bristol, England on October 23rd.

It has been announced that 68 year old legendary horror director, John Carpenter will be headlining the Simple Things Festival in Bristol, England on October 23rd.

Carpenter will be playing a type of contemplation of his past musical work that reached the pinnacle of success throughout the late 1970’s and 1980’s and will be accompanied by a live band. Fans of Halloween and Carpenter’s work in general are sure to have a blast.

A countdown on several of his best works in the horror genre will be analyzed today, so stick around to see which movie this article picks as it’s first choice!

The Fog (1980)

the-fog-preacher

Capturing some of the spiritual essence of Halloween, The Fog tells the story about a group of shipwrecked outcasts that return to terrorize a small Californian town all beginning with the incoming of a mysterious wide sheet of fog.

Director John Carpenter utilized his famous synths to construct the score as he famously did for Halloween which suitably fitted the picture. But unlike the aforementioned, The Fog confirms the entities in this one are, in fact, supernatural, something in which Halloween only hinted at to the audience.

The Fog makes for a spooky early 1980’s supernatural slasher movie that was designed by Carpenter when he was still at the top of his game, although this work was to be bettered in the future!

The Thing (1982)

the-thing-1982-01

It has been reported that The Thing is the one movie that Carpenter is most proud of. After being an independent director for so long, Universal Studios were willing to lend him a sizeable budget to do the remake of 1951’s The Thing From Another World.

But unfortunately for Carpenter, The Thing has always been viewed as something that should have been given much more credit than it received considering the jaw dropping practical special effects combined with a sterling narrative and matching performances by the likes of Kurt Russell. Carpenter managed to still create an intense sense of paranoia as he did with his independent horror works but in a slightly altered manner.

It has been said that the musical score has the power to tell just as much of a story as the actors, but unfortunately The Thing’s theme does fall short of being memorable and effective. But with the astonishing effects showing themselves for what they are, a good score doesn’t seem to matter much in this case and is instead secondary to what the film visually displayed.

Christine (1983)

christine-1983-1

After work was completed on The Thing, an adaption of Stephen King’s novel Christine became John Carpenter’s next project. Plot alterations that were set in the novel have irked fans of the book who still want to see a more faithful adaption.

Nevertheless, Christine is an effective chiller. Keith Gordon is disquieting as teenage owner Arnie Cunningham, who eventually turns against his loved ones after being emotionally lured by the devilish automobile. It’s conclusion does suffer from not being as definitive as perhaps it could have been but the back door is left open for a sequel which never came to fruition.

A remake has been mentioned by Hollywood executives but nothing has been set in concrete. If or when it does happen, maybe fans of the book will finally get what they have been longing for!

Halloween (1978)

halloween1_halloweenfeature_620

Considered, rightly or wrongly, the grandaddy of slasher movies, Halloween wasn’t a success right away and instead was a project that gained a global following through word of mouth over time.

Relatively tame compared to what we are shown today, modern audiences born after 1989 possibly wouldn’t be able to take it quite so seriously as older folk who were born closer to it’s initial release. But those that are interested in the technicalities of filming would find Halloween quite interesting. Carpenter knew exactly what he wanted out of each and every shot that made it to the big screen and used the Steadicam to instigate audiences into wondering if the villain, Michael Myers was ever going to pop out from behind a tree or a large green garden bush and terrorize 1970’s audiences!

The score was also composed by Carpenter, which resonates simplistically but is haunting and threatening at the same time. Although it’s sequels also used the theme, it’s message eventually changed into one that symbolized Myers as some unstoppable monstrous force that lost it’s dangerously expressive presence.

Concert Review: Pearl Jam Rock The House In Philadelphia, PA http://pcmworldnews.com/news/2016/05/concert-review-pearl-jam-rock-the-house-in-philadelphia-pa/ Tue, 10 May 2016 17:46:42 +0000 http://unskinnypop.com/?p=48535 (PCM) We had the profound opportunity to witness an evening with Pearl Jam when the Seattle-based band stopped by the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA for a two- night gig. We were able to catch night one, during which the band played an epic three-hour set to a sell-out crowd. The audience was just as enthused to see the band as they were to be back in Philly.

(PCM) We had the profound opportunity to witness an evening with Pearl Jam when the Seattle-based band stopped by the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA for a two- night gig. We were able to catch night one, during which the band played an epic three-hour set to a sell-out crowd. The audience was just as enthused to see the band as they were to be back in Philly. The last time Pearl Jam played in Philly was three years ago and  this show marked the  23rd time Pearl Jam had played in city of brotherly love.

PJ8

There were so many memorable moments during the show. One of our favorites occurred when Eddie sang a song to a couple that had just gotten married high up in the box seats. The lights shined on them as he sang and they kissed. It was a moment we will always remember, as Eddie Vedder serenaded the couple with , “Picture In A Frame” by Tom Waits saying it was “the most romantic song I know”!

PJ3

Pearl Jam has such an amazingly extensive music catalog that we can’t even begin to imagine just how hard it is for them to craft a set list each and every night. Night one in Philly was like a glorious buffet of classic Pearl Jam favorites with a few deep cuts thrown in, much to the overall delight of fans.

PJ13

Prior to breaking into “All Night” Vedder shared some stories with the audience about the very first time that the band played in Philadelphia and the atmosphere during their 1992 performance at J.C. Dobb’s. Much the same as the rest of us, Vedder admitted to being saddened to hear that the legendary venue has since gone under.

PJ2

The spotlight was turned on Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament leading into “Low Light”, as Vedder praised his skills as a master musician and terrific songwriter before breaking into the song. “Love Boat Captain” was dedicated to nine year fan Joshua, who was in attendance at the show due to a wonder organization called “Given To Life”. The crowd cheered as the spotlight was turned on young Joshua and his family who were absolutely overjoyed and jamming their hearts out with the band.

PJ1

After an amazing performance of “Evenflow”, Vedder speaks highly of drummer Matt Cameron and his amazing memory before breaking into the Cameron penned song “Into The Moonlight”. It was wonderful to witness the closeness and camaraderie that exists between the members of Pearl Jam who have managed to maintain such a tight unit after twenty-five years. That is no easy feat considering the ever changing musical landscape.

PJ9

Another amazing set from an amazing band. Pearl Jam’s music has always had a message, and that message has spoken to their longevity with their fan’s. Pearl Jam celebrates 25 years of being a band this year. An amazing feat if we do say so ourselves! If you’re interested in this set list or any of their shows from this tour past or present you can find their official bootlegs of the show’s on the link found here!

(PCM) LA-based music duo Yacht, who also happen to be romantically involved, are fighting back against the culprits who allegedly leaked a sex tape of the duo, by selling their own version of the tape for mere price of $5.00 available for download on their website.

The pair claim that someone illegally got a hold of the tape and began to distribute it online. They did not elaborate on where the original tape was available or just how many people had actually viewed it.  The band members, Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans, posted the following message to Yacht Facebook page:

Claire and I — who have been romantic and artistic partners since 2006 — made a “sex tape.” It was intended for us only. We don’t feel the need to justify the reason we made it. Anyone reading this who has been in a long term partnership understands that preserving the relationship is an ever-changing and challenging thing. It’s especially difficult when the lines between career and romance are as merged as ours are. The financial pressures that we’ve been under, which de facto extend into our extracurricular lives, created a circumstance in which we felt like we needed a bit of an escape from the day-to-day. So we turned on a camera, became naked, and had sex. We assumed that we were the only people who would be privy to that video. I guess we were naive. Now you have the option to be privy to that video. For us, that’s a shame.

We feel like art is an act of generosity. The art we make for the public is for that expressed purpose. And now we’re in an awkward situation where the art that we made for us and us alone is being viewed by anyone who has the inclination to hit play — a true and humiliating blurring of the public and private.

Jona and Claire went as far as to say that they planned to press charges against the individual who stole the tape and made the decision to release the tape themselves. However, as it turns out the entire situation is a hoax created as a way to hype the new music video that Yacht will be releasing this week.  It has been pointed out by several sources close to the band that they only people who have claimed to see it are celebrity friends/supporters of Yacht and no one else seems to be able to find it online.

While this is certainly a great, albeit sneaky, tactic to generate buzz surrounding the band, many feel duped by the publicity stunt and angered that the band would go to this length to generate video views. When we made an attempt to check out the page with the “sex tape” in question we got an error message. Let us know if you or anyone you know of has been able to successfully download the video!

Award winning actress, Jodie Foster earned her spot on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on Wednesday when she received her own star on the famous Hollywood boulevard. Starring in the likes of such classics as Taxi Driver, it is safe to wonder why she was not given a slot sooner!

Foster’s career does not just involve the art of acting. She has dabbled in directing and producing movies and television. Her appearances in movies have been sporadic in the last several years ,but anything is possible and all it takes is one smart choice of script to make another big impact in cinema once again.

Until, and if that happens, why don’t we analyze what this editorial picks as her three most memorable roles!

Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs (1991)

The classic psychological thriller is now 25 years old, as frightening as that maybe. The Oscar winning picture, directed by Jonathan Demme, was made with enough class so as not to easily be dismissed by the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences as horror movies often are. Jodie Foster won an Oscar for Best Actress for Silence of the Lambs and it truly wasn’t just down to Anthony Hopkins’ slightly campy portrayal of man eating villain Hannibal Lecter. Foster’s Clarice Starling was young and vulnerable, somebody who was thrown into the “lion’s den.” Starling eventually found her deeply concealed courage as the FBI agent who was on the trail of a serial killer, but at the same time was seduced by Lecter’s cunning psychological methods behind bars to reveal personal information that resulted in the two forming an unusual bond.

One cannot help but think that had Foster signed up for the mediocre Hannibal (2001) that the sequel would have earned a more elevated reputation. Julianne Moore is a great actress but her altered portrayal, giving Starling a more assertive edge, took away from the apprehension that the story for that movie was narrating.

Meg Altman in Panic Room (2002)

Foster made a bit of a splash with Nell in 1994 but truly needed to make another captivating movie worthy of classic status. And it is probably of no surprise that Panic Room in 2002 turned out to be yet another psychological thriller. Based on the novel by James Ellison, Panic Room tells the story of a mother who, with a daughter suffering from diabetes, has to fight for both her life and her offspring when three intruders break into their home searching for a valuable piece.

If Silence of the Lambs delivered tension in unpredictable moments, then Panic Room would be viewed at as the one where the twitchiness and suspense would not seemingly die down throughout. Special mention has to be given to a young Kristen Stewart for her performance playing the physically plagued young Sarah.

Although the determination and strength of Clarice Starling wasn’t evident until the last half of Silence of the Lambs, Meg Altman’s is displayed rather early. A game of cat and mouse, Altman thought fast on her feet and displayed enough intelligence to almost constantly outwit the burglars, who get more and more desperate!

Panic Room is definitely one to check out for those that love fast paced thrillers, but be warned! Those with low lung capacities may find it difficult to breathe!

Iris in Taxi Driver (1976)

The wheels of Jodie Foster’s career had already been rolling for several years before the opportunity to star in Taxi Driver came along, so when it did she took it firmly with both hands!

Playing a prostitute named Iris on the unwelcoming streets of New York City in the mid 1970’s, it was a role that was rather minimal for the new girl on the Hollywood block. Robert De Niro commanded much more screen time, and to be fair it is felt that there was perhaps a little too much vigor in Iris considering the situation that she is in.

Still, Taxi Driver was the indicator for things to come for Jodie Foster’s career and the movie wouldn’t be what it turned out to be without Martin Scorsese’s masterful direction of showcasing the dejection and general misery that the city projected. Special credit has to be given to Michael Chapman for his fitting cinematography that consisted of lifeless colours and demonstrating the isolation of De Niro’s Travis Bickle that eventually sends him on the path of destruction, but achieving salvation for Iris.

(Syfy) Today, the Fourth is definitely with you as Syfy reveals the first wave of cameos and the official movie poster for SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS, premiering Sunday, July 31 at 8PM ET/PT.

With sharknados back in full force, it’s only natural that Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) would need to enlist help from some new friends in his tireless fight to protect the world from the sharknado menace…

Among those making cameos in SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS this summer are:

Cynthia Bailey (“The Real Housewives of Atlanta”)
Robert Herjavec (“Shark Tank”)
Kym Johnson (“Dancing with the Stars”)
Carrie Keagan (TV host)
T’Keyah Crystal Keymah (“In Living Color”)
“Baywatch” stars Gena Lee Nolin and Alexandra Paul as Astro-X rocket scientists and astrophysicists
Benjy Bronk (“The Howard Stern Show”) as a morning show host
Duane Chapman (“Dog the Bounty Hunter”) as a chainsaw dealer
Stacey Dash (actress and pundit) as the Mayor of Chicago
Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts) as manager of the Shark World hotel
David Faustino (“Married with Children”) as a Las Vegas gambler
Lori Greiner (“Shark Tank”) as a home shopping guru
Frank Mir (MMA fighter) as head of security for the Shark World hotel
Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Wayne Newton (aka Mr. Las Vegas) and Todd, Savannah and Grayson Chrisley (“Chrisley Knows Best”) as themselves
Dr. Drew Pinsky (“Loveline”) as a pastor
Patti Stanger (“Millionaire Matchmaker”) as a reporter
Corey Taylor (Slipknot) as a Shark World hotel security guard

…and stay tuned for more cameo surprises to be announced!

SHARKNADO: THE 4th AWAKENS takes place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in last summer’s SHARKNADO 3: OH HELL NO!. Fin (Ziering), his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks – and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) least expected.

Tara Reid is also set to return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign. David Hasselhoff (as Gil Shepard) and Ryan Newman (as Claudia Shepard) will also reprise their SHARKNADO 3 roles. New additions to the SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS cast include Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs.

SHARKNADO: THE 4TH AWAKENS is a production of The Asylum. Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct an original screenplay written by Thunder Levin.

Mothers-Day1(PCM) Garry Marshall is a man who definitely understands women.

This is why his female-driven romantic comedies, including “Pretty Woman,” “Runaway Bride,” “Princess Diaries,” and now, “Mother’s Day,” are such treats.

The 81-year-old Marshall attended a special Manhattan event hosted by social media and Sirius XM radio hosts Melissa Gerstein and Denise Albert, known as “The Moms,” to talk about his new film, “Mother’s Day,” which opened just in the time for the actual holiday. He was there with one of the star’s of the film, Kate Hudson.

The movie, which gets to the core of complicated family relationships, also boasts a star-studded cast led by Hudson, Julia Roberts, and Jennifer Aniston – who all come off as both charming and realistic.

“Mother’s Day,” from Open Road Films, tells intertwining stories about Miranda, a television host (Roberts), Sandy, a divorced mom of two boys, (Aniston), and Jesse, (Hudson), who is hiding her marriage and young son from her parents because her husband is Indian, and she fears they will not accept them.

Other stories involve a widower with two daughters, played by Jason Sudeikis, and several other family members who come together in the week leading up to Mother’s Day, as well as Jesse’s sister, Gabi, (Sarah Chalke) who is afraid to tell their parents she is gay and married to her female partner. They also share custody of her partner’s young son.

Marshall has directed more than 30 movies, including, “Raising Helen,” “Beaches,” “The Other Sister,” He is also the creator and producer of numerous award-winning TV shows, including “Happy Days,” “Laverne and Shirley” “Mork & Mindy,” and “The Odd Couple.” His early career found him writing for such gems as “The Danny Thomas Show,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and “The Lucy Show.”

Marshall said he made the new movie to tackle complex and difficult issues such as interracial relationships and same sex marriage. As is the norm in his films, “Mother’s Day” is touching, but also extremely uplifting.

He said that grown children and their parents often drift apart, especially after fighting over their differences. “You might have had fights with one another, but your mother is the first one [in your life] who loves you so you’ve got to make up. So that’s what we do in this movie; and we do it in a funny way.”

Q: Garry, please tell me about your mom.

GARRY MARSHALL: My mom was a dance teacher and taught dancing in the basement of our apartment building in The Bronx. She wore slacks, nobody wore slack in the neighborhood, and she was a working mother. She told us when you’re sad, you go and make someone laugh and that will cheer you up. That’s what I have been doing all of these years.

Q: So would you say that was your mom’s motto?

GM: Yes, my mom had a great sense of humor she used to repeat to me, ‘never be boring, never be boring.’ And I was six years old and I asked her, ‘what’s boring mom?’ She said, ‘you’re father.’ I am kidding; they were happily married for many years.

Q: How would you describe Kate? You two seem like you have a nice bond.

GM: She’s very cute, this girl.

Q: Kate’s children came to Atlanta to the set of this movie – 12-year-old Ryder and four-year old Bing.

GM: Oh, yes. I would say that Bing is as cute as a button.

Q: How do you get all of these amazing people such as Kate Hudson all of the time to join your cast?

GM: I call up and say ‘Hey Kate, we’re doing a movie.’ We did a wonderful picture together “Raising Helen” and I happen to know somebody she knows, her mother Goldie [Hawn], who worked with me on the movie “Overboard.” So I say ‘come let’s make a movie.’ We had a good time.

Q: Tell me about Kate’s character, Jesse, in the movie.

GM: Gladly. Kate plays a character, I’m sure you have gone through it, where her mother says ‘him, that’s who you are going to marry? Look at him. You’re going to bring him home for dinner?’’ And they have fights. You might have had fights with your children. But the mother is the first one [in your life] who loves you so you got to make up. So that’s what we do, and we do it in a funny way.

Q: “Raising Helen,” your other movie with Kate was also a mom-themed movie as well.

GM: I do a lot of chick flicks.

Q: I would say that you do them really well – you may have invented them. But what inspires you on these women themes?

GM: What inspires me? I’m a Scorpio. I’m Italian. I have a sister and I have daughters. I grew up in an apartment in New York where your grandmother and grandfather lived in the apartment and you are all bunched together. So I am very comfortable with women and I think they are the most interesting things in the world.

Q: How do you characterize your movies?

GM: Nobody flies and nobody explodes.

Q: What else are they about?

GM: Well, we deal with some tricky subjects in this movie that a lot of people don’t try to do and we got them in. We do them. And I deal with hopeful endings: that’s the key word. You end feeling good. You got to make a gag reel. I love the gag reel. The longest end credits in the history of movies, you will see a few of the gags and mistakes at the end, after the picture is over.

Q: Do the studios immediately embrace movies like this with more emotional content?

GM: No. You’ve got to fight them to make this happen. They told me when I did Beaches nobody wants to see a story about women, girls and friendship – nobody cares – it’s not a buddy picture. I said, ‘Don’t you understand women fight, yell at each other and say the worse things to each other and then an hour later they go shopping.’ [He laughed]. Men have a fight; they say one cross word they don’t talk for 20 years. Women are far more fascinating to me.

Q: What’s the biggest change for you making this film?

GM: The biggest change is that they all have cell phones. My seven-year-old grandchild knows how to work the internet. To get your kids to look up. I never go near the internet, it scares me. I’m very hip; we shot this movie with drones. I didn’t do it, my son shoots it. But I have six grandchildren and it is a whole different thing of raising kids today. They are so fast because they use the internet. There are four stories in this movie and the kids can follow it in a zip. They know all the characters and they register so much; it’s amazing. I can’t follow it half the time. But this movie I can follow. I lived it for a very long time.

Q: Technology has really changed our lives.

GM: Yes. We used to say no TV, now you say give me the phone.

Q: It seems like you truly enjoyed the experience of making “Mother’s Day.”

GM: You meet a lot of people when you are making movies, so whether it’s a hit or not you usually have a great time and meet people you are going to know the rest of your life. You get up five o’clock in the morning with these movies, so it’s nice to see people that you know. We opened this movie and the first kid in the movie is my seven-year-old granddaughter running around the hotel.

Q: Do you have tips or advice on getting an actress like Kate Hudson to be in your movie?

GM: You have to make friends with someone like Kate, first.

Q: Why is that?

GM: It has always been difficult to get these movies made. When my sister Penny [Marshall], who you know as Laverne, went to direct her first film they said they didn’t like women directors. They felt that a woman’s mind did not come up with ideas that appealed to a mass audience. That’s all Penny had to hear. The benchmark in movies is a movie that makes $100 million. Penny not only made one of those, she made two, “A League of Their Own,” and “Big.” I’m very proud of her; she was the first female director to break the $100 million mark. So you got to keep going and now you push that internet button and they give you start up money or something.

Q: I can see that you loved working with Kate on this. Do you have a fond memory of working with her actress-mother, Goldie Hawn? What’s your favorite movie that your mom, Goldie Hawn, made?

GM: Oh, yes. Her mom is an amazing lady. After “Overboard” we had a cast party and your mom said to me ‘Can I bring a friend to the party? She’s not in the movie.’ I said, ‘Sure, bring friends.’ Who did she bring – Elizabeth Taylor! [He laughed]. I was stunned. What a wonderful woman!

Q: Do you have anything else you want to add about the movie, “Mother’s Day?”

GM: I hope that you enjoy the film. It touches a lot of subjects. Everyone has problems, but I think you will come away and say ‘okay we have hope that we can solve the problem.’
