In my other life, I write books. On my kitchen shelf, you’ll find a mug with a picture of a typewriter and the caption "Careful – you might end up in my novel." I’ve never actually sought revenge on anyone by immortalizing them in print but I understand the impulse. It’s a form of power. If someone pisses me off, I can do horrible things to them. Humiliate them, take away whatever they love most, kill them slowly and painfully, or all three. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) the people mo... [Read more]

Taylor Swift is uncharacteristically taking a respite from writing love songs; however, up until now, the "Shake It Off" singer didn't seem able to produce any material that didn't discuss her current and former relationships. During this time, author Nicholas Sparks (known for The Notebook and A Walk to Remember) also couldn't stop issuing best-selling love-dramas that became so popular they were adapted into feature films. For all you hopeless romantics out there, I challenge you to discern wh... [Read more]

T. Swift’s relationship status is the subject of an obscene amount of media attention. With the recent announcement of her world tour and the release of her new album 1989, which sold over one million copies in just one week, journalists have been pouring over her lyrics trying to decipher who exactly she’s singing about. Whether it’s frenemy Katy Perry or ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, the press has consistent field days with Swift’s heartbreak. While I can’t say I’m a fan of the singer’s conversio... [Read more]
I'm the product of a mixed marriage. My father was pure Connecticut Yankee, from the roots of his gingery hair to the tips of his Sperry Topsiders®. Mom was born in Oklahoma. Dad didn't approve of country music, which he referred to as "that gawdawful yodeling," and wouldn't have it on the radio. But when Dad was out of the house, Mom would tune in to the country station. She loved to sing along and I'd harmonize, singing soprano to her deep alto. Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Patti Page (Mo... [Read more]
A “secret” anything for the boy band known as One Direction is probably few and far between these days. Since being selected through one of the most complex vetting processes ever devised, each of the “boys” has probably signed away a good deal of the element of secrecy to Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment family in exchange for future earnings. The members of One Direction had even been previously rejected as individual contestants on the British music competition program The X Factor and wer... [Read more]

Hopelessly Un-Hip!

May 1, 2013
I have a confession to make: You'll find the radio presets in my car tuned to an assortment of NPR stations (going over a hill in rural Connecticut usually results in the loss of reception) and my Pandora account is heavily weighted toward music recorded prior to 1980. So, what the heck am I doing working for a site dedicated to providing opportunities to see the latest, greatest, most popular entertainment? [Read more]
