Flashback: 'Office Space' Gleefully Mocks Michael Bolton

30 June 2016 9:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Office Space hit theaters in February of 1999, it took in a paltry $4.2 million in its first weekend, landing in eighth place behind such widely-forgotten turkeys as My Favorite Martian, Blast From The Past, Message in a Bottle and Payback. Writer/director Mike Judge had proven himself in television with Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill, but this seemed like it would end his foray into movies and live-action work before it really began.

Office Space made such a tiny impact when it opened, it's easy to imagine »

‘Phantom of the Paradise’: Brian De Palma’s Damnation of the Creative Industry

29 June 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“We’ll remember you forever, Eddie / Through the sacrifice you made / We can’t believe the price you paid / For love”

After a brief, eerie opening voiceover from Rod Serling, Brian De Palma’s biting 1974 Phantom of the Paradise opens with these lyrics from The Juicy Fruits — a literally named bubblegum nostalgia pop outfit — that combine the easily digestible with the macabre. The song’s musician subject exploits the American cult of celebrity, becoming an overnight sensation by strategically committing suicide for chart success. This mesh of exploitation and idealism peaks as ghoulish producer Swan (Paul Williams) and aspiring singer Winslow Leach (William Finley) do Faustian battle over the fate of music and their souls. In De Palma’s first big-budget film — relatively: it was twice the cost of 1973’s Sisters — the money went to making the biggest, flashiest middle finger to creative industry you could ask for while cementing his meta-fascination with death. »

Luke Bryan Turned His Back on the All for the Hall Concert - and the Crowd Went Wild! (Let Us Explain)

13 April 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The sold-out crowd at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena learned Tuesday night there are some things Luke Bryan just won't do. One is this: If Keith Urban and Vince Gill are in his backup band, he's not going to ignore them. That's why, halfway through a magical stripped-down acoustic version of "Strip It Down," Bryan simply turned around to face the two guitar masters behind him. "If I'm gonna play and sing with Keith Urban and Vince Gill," he announced between verses, "I want to watch them." Urban couldn't resist commenting on the about-face, suggesting with some Aussie sauciness, that the »

The Voice Live Playoffs (Pt. 2) Recap: Ain't No Way For Us to Love Them

12 April 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Thirty-seven years from now, when retired broadcaster Carson Daly writes The Complete History of The Voice: Seasons 1-84, there will be no mention of this Tuesday’s episode.

Because while Season 10’s Live Playoffs, Night 2, may not have been the worst live episode in the history of the show that re-launched Cassadee Pope’s career, it might’ve been the most forgettable.

No one stood out — well, except for Christina Aguilera, wearing leather half-gloves that made her hands look like Ninja »

One recent evening, Rita Coolidge sat at her kitchen table in pink cowboy boots, sipping a glass of chardonnay when the conversation drifted to Crosby, Stills & Nash.
