Eurotrash is back! ‘We have a guy who paints portraits with his penis’

10 June 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Their racy show defined 90s post-pub TV. Now, Antoine de Caunes and Jean Paul Gaultier return for a one-off Brexit special

Antoine de Caunes is a novelist, actor, film director and television presenter. His greatest talent, however, may well be his ability to keep a straight face. It’s a skill he’s making use of as he lists the guests appearing in a special edition of his show Eurotrash. “There is this guy named Human Nature who transforms himself into different animals, and he will transform himself into a unicorn,” he says, his face betraying no glimmer of smirk. “It’s very spectacular, it’s not just a guy in some makeup. Really spectacular.”

After some thought, Antoine continues: “We have the Spanish psychic that can read the future in vegetables and fruits…”

Top 25 Twenty-First Century Jazz Albums

29 April 2016 10:44 PM, PDT | | See recent CultureCatch news »

Today being international jazz day, there will be much celebrating of the greatness of its history. I’ve done that in the past; it is a great history. But it is not all back in historical times; jazz lives, and evolves, and continues to be great. Yet how many lists of the greatest jazz albums include anything from the current century?

That they do not is no indictment of them; only sixteen percent of the years when recorded jazz has existed (not counting the present year yet) are in the twenty-first century, after all, and some prefer to bestow the label of greatness after more perspective has been achieved than sixteen (or fewer, for newer releases) years.

Nonetheless, if people are to respect jazz as a living art form, a look back at the best of its more recent releases seems worthwhile. Here’s one man’s “baker’s dozen »

12 ways the arts can encourage climate action

25 April 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A panel of experts around the world share their thoughts on the most effective ways the arts can prompt climate action

Sponsored by Connect4Climate

Our belief is that people act out of having a relationship with the environment. If that emotional connection is not there, they won’t care. Rather than relaying messages, it’s about creating experiences and creating an alternative that’s actually more rewarding. I often wonder if it’s as simple as encouraging creativity over consumption.

19 April 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The Voice‘s Top 12 results telecast (tonight, 8/7c on NBC) could turn out to be the best of times and the worst of times for Coach Blake Shelton.

After all, while the country superstar’s main man Adam Wakefield is atop the Season 10 heap when it comes to iTunes sales, Blake’s remaining two artists find themselves on the exact opposite end of the spectrum as of noon Et (the official close of voting).

The Voice Top 12 Performance Recap: It's Not Over (Unless It's Over)

18 April 2016 7:27 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Like Christina Aguilera executing a run during a contestant’s rehearsal package, or Blake Shelton spiking the comedic volleyball in Adam Levine’s face (over and over again), The Voice‘s Alisan Porter is pretty much perfect.

And Monday night, as she detonated a vocal bomb shaped like Demi Lovato’s “Stone Cold,” she seemingly left a barren wasteland (think Mad Max: Fury Road, without any cast members) where the Season 10 competition used to be.

Interview: Actor Don Cheadle Discovers Himself ‘Miles Ahead’

6 April 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Like improvisational jazz, the performance career of Don Cheadle has many moods, directions and shadings. For his latest film, he takes on the titles of co-writer and director, along with the lead role of music legend Miles Davis. This all comes together is the aptly titled “Miles Ahead.”

Cheadle applies a different kind of music biography spin, with a centerpiece story about Davis that operates as a mythical framework for the musician’s life story, told in a loose flashback format. The cinematic structure is jazzy and kinetic, and it moves forward with an energy all of its own, driven by the frenetic soundtrack of the man himself. As a director, Cheadle has crafted something outside the norm, a visual blend that could be at home within the florid sweep of a Miles Davis composition.

Doctor Who, geek fandom and Comic Book Guy

9 February 2016 8:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




What happens when the episodes you love don't match everyone else's? Here's what it feels like to do fandom "wrong"...

This article contains spoilers for Doctor Who: Love & Monsters

During my first year at university, I met up with some other Doctor Who fans. This was 2007, when Tennant-mania was starting to overwhelm Britain and a then-45-year-old show was inexplicably the height of cool. After drinks and awkward small talk in the student bar, we turned to the question. The question you ask whenever you meet another fan. The question that’s hidden in plain sight...

No, not “Doctor Who?” Not even ‘who’s your favorite Doctor?’ Rather: “What’s your favorite episode?”

As we went around the group, the obvious candidates were named: Blink, Human Nature, Dalek, Utopia. Titles that are hallowed in the annals of Nu-Who history. Finally, it was my turn to contribute. »
