Carson Daly Remembers Late Mother With Sweet Thanksgiving Day Post
Carson Daly is missing his late mother, Pattie Daly Caruso.

The Voice host took to Instagram on Thanksgiving Day to express how the holiday isn't the same without his beloved mom.

“Deeply missing the smell of mom’s Jimmy Dean sausage as I woke up this am. Luckily, she left the family recipes for us. #Happy Thanksgiving #TomTurkey,” Daly wrote alongside an image of a pre-cooked turkey and his mother’s recipes.

Daly’s mother died of a heart attack on Sept. 17. The 44-year-old TV personality has been vocal about losing his mother, sharing letters and special notes that Caruso left behind.

During his return to the Today show, Daly told his co-anchors that he was “doing Ok.”

"I'm healing, still in shock, really rough loss," he said. "Nobody likes that phone to ring in the middle of the night to get that call.”

Last month, Daly suffered another loss when his stepdad, Richard Caruso, also died.

‘Diamonds are Forever’ over the top but dull

Diamonds are Forever

Directed by Guy Hamilton

Screenplay by Richard Maibaum & Tom Mankiewicz

UK, 1971

Following up On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, widely considered by most fans to be the best Bond incarnation pre-reboot, here the series takes a step back to recast the iconic Sean Connery in the role of mischievous misogynist Jimmy B, and promptly trips over itself in a strangely crass and dull outing. Replacing the wooden George Lazenby with the series’ original super spy proves to be mere consolation rather than icing on the cake bomb.

Diamonds are Forever surprisingly starts with direct continuity, with Bond leading a ruthless and fisticuffs laden hunt across the world for wife killer Ernst Stavros Blofelt (played here by Charles Gray). He eventually tracks down the evil mastermind and gives him a searing exit to proceedings, or so it seems. Getting back to the small matter of his day job

Countdown to Spectre – Diamonds Are Forever Review

Ricky Church continues his countdown to Spectre with a review of Diamonds Are Forever

After On Her Majesty’s Secret Service producers Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman sought Sean Connery to come back to the role he made famous one last time (officially at least) in Diamonds Are Forever, the conclusion to the Spectre era of Bond films (until next month that is). After the death of his wife, Bond attempts to move on and is investigating a diamond smuggling operation that is far more sinister than the typical smuggling ring when he discovers his arch-nemesis Blofeld is behind it.

After George Lazenby decided to drop out of the Bond franchise for fear of being typecast (on advice from his agent no less) production had to work fast to recast the role. Despite looking at new actors, they thought it would be best to gain Connery back one last time

‘Come Back to the Five and Dime...’ Plus 2 More Atlanta Events

Fans want Jimmy Dean to come back to the Five and Dime; Shakespeare writes it “As You Like It”; and a dive-in movie is showing at the Georgia Aquarium. It’s this week’s Atlanta events roundup. “Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean”In 1955, James Dean was filming “Giant” in a small town near McCarthy Texas, but died soon after. Twenty years later, his fan club, The Disciples of James Dean, reunite to commemorate the anniversary of his death. But events from their past begin to emerge that should have stayed hidden. The original play premiered in 1976 and was directed by Robert Altman, as was the 1982 film version. This version, directed by DeWayne Morgan, is playing through June 27 at Onstage Atlanta. “As You Like It”Take another trip into Shakespeare's enchanted woods in “As You Like It,” where Rosalind disguises herself as a man while

Bluray/DVD Review: Sleepaway Camp III

One of the things that I love most about being a horror writer and a longtime rabid 80s horror nut is getting the opportunity to meet other fans like myself and talk about the films that we sat through as kids for the first time and how we have grown to become so attached to them as adults so many years later. While established franchises like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street have their own masses of followers, it warms my heart when I meet a fan of the Sleepaway Camp series and get the opportunity to banter back and forth with them and discuss what we both love and hate about the original trilogy. Surprisingly, there is a sort of divide among fans about which sequel they prefer most – Unhappy Campers or Teenage Wasteland. It’s fascinating to get to hear them speak so passionately about

Men, Women, Anderson and Altman: On ‘The Master’ and ’3 Women’


Paul Thomas Anderson learned to make movies by watching movies. Each of his films bears the ghostly fingerprints of his masters and mentors: the obsession and one-point perspective of Kubrick; the tough-guy veneers and fetid societies that sated the first decade of Scorsese’s career; the intense meditative stares of Jonathan Demme, constantly reminding us that we are, of course, watching a film—we’re immersed in it, but we are spectators, non-participants, in the hands of an artist. Anderson has never created voyeuristic or naturalistic films, never approached Cinéma vérité, and he’s never tried to feign an amateur aesthetic. He crafts films indebted to the grand ambience of New Hollywood, rendered unnaturally lucid and diligently composed. To watch one of Anderson’s films is to get a condensed lesson on the artisanship and history of American cinema.

But Anderson’s most obvious early influence—one he has name-checked,

New on Video: ‘Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull’s History Lesson’

Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull’s History Lesson

Written by Alan Rudolph and Robert Altman

Directed by Robert Altman

USA, 1976

The popularity of the Western, at one point America’s reigning genre champion, was starting to wane considerably by the mid-1960s and well into the 1970s. In part to keep the form alive, and in part to examine just want made this type of film what it once was and had now become, many filmmakers, Sam Peckinpah most notably, began to approach Westerns through a self-consciously analytical lens. These were Westerns that were, in one way or another, about Westerns themselves: what made them work, what their key tropes were, how could their conventions be subverted or updated, and how could this old-fashioned genre be made modern?

Director Robert Altman, no stranger to subverting conventions and thwarting expectations, had already tackled this in 1971, with McCabe & Mrs. Miller.

'WWE Raw:' Welcome Back to Daniel Bryan's House of Yes!
You take the good, you take the bad, you take the rest and there you have last night's installment of Monday Night Raw.

With the Authority finally usurped, fans got some much-needed relief from Hhh and Stephanie's omnipresence (at least after the opening segment) and were rewarded for their patience with the return of one-night Gm Daniel Bryan. And after a rather lengthy series of monologues and mandates, grown men and women tussled and toiled, belts were defended and retained and Kane ended his night covered in a hellacious combination of condiments.

Come Back to the 5 and Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean | Blu-ray Review

Long unavailable for home viewing, Robert Altman’s 1982 title Come Back to the 5 and Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean has languished as a remote, minor title of the auteur’s filmography, trotted out to devotees at retrospectives. Based on the play by Ed Graczyk and featuring a bevy of eclectic actresses, it’s often and unfairly lumped into consideration with Altman’s other adaptations of stage material from the time period, including David Rabe’s Streamers (1983), Sam Shepard’s Fool For Love (1985) and Christopher Durang’s Beyond Therapy (1987). Often described as typically Altmanesque with its examination of Americana, a dialogue heavy showcase of melodrama squeezed from the banalities of everyday existence, at last it’s available for a wider appreciation, ripe for a recuperation as more than a mere trifle lost in a flood of greater titles from an American auteur.

It’s 1975 and a group of extreme James Dean fans,

After Lauren Bacall's Passing, Every Hollywood Legend Name-Checked in 'Vogue' Is Dead

After Lauren Bacall's Passing, Every Hollywood Legend Name-Checked in 'Vogue' Is Dead
Upon its release in 1990, Madonna's "Vogue" was an appreciation of a long-gone age of Hollywood glamour. Now that age is truly lost: as xoJane's Marci Robin pointed out on Twitter, the passing of Lauren Bacall means every star name-checked in the song has died. Bacall was the last surviving member of the 16 famous names in the song; nine of these stars were still alive when the song hit airwaves on March 20, 1990. ("Vogue" itself is 24 years old.) Below, find the full list of celebrity names included in "Vogue." "Greta Garbo and Monroe, Dietrich and Dimaggio"As fate would have it, Greta Garbo

Kathy Griffin Needs to Join Rosie O'Donnell on 'The View'
Our first victory in the great 2014 overhaul of "The View": Rosie O'Donnell appears to be rejoining the show alongside veteran panelist Whoopi Goldberg. We basically asked for this. Now let's perfect "The View" once and for all -- we need Kathy Griffin to join the show too. A three-comedienne panel would be a strange new world for "The View," but Kathy Griffin is simply the perfect fit. She's candid, she's able to talk about anything, and she's actually willing to be vulnerable and even solemn when the occasion calls for it. She gets "The View." And now "The View" should get her. Here are six reasons why: 1. She has a great friendship and onscreen rapport with Rosie. Kathy Griffin and Rosie O'Donnell could talk about anything. They don't have to try to be interesting because they're actively interested in everything. It's sort of addicting, particularly in this clip from Rosie's short-lived Own show.

Muppets Facts: 19 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About Jim Henson's Creations

It's been decades since visionary Jim Henson first created the Muppets, yet today his lovable creations are as popular as ever.

But for as much time as the Muppets have spent in the spotlight, there's still a lot you don't know about Henson's clever creations. From the first national Muppet "star" to the materials that created the Kermit prototype, here are 19 things you probably don't know about The Muppets.

1. Jim Henson created The Muppets in 1955, making them nearly 60 years old!

2. Henson coined the term "Muppet," but it is not a combination of the words "marionette" and "puppet" -- a belief that was once supported by Henson himself. Rather, it has been reported that Henson just liked the sound of the word.

3. A key factor for the Muppets success is that Henson's realization that TV would allow him to put the puppets front and center, while still hiding the puppeteers. With
