Film Review: ‘Permanent’

Film Review: ‘Permanent’
It’s hard to decide which era “Permanent” is most nostalgic for: 1982, when writer-director Colette Burson’s semiautobiographical coming-of-ager is set, or the turn of the millennium, when movies like “Welcome to the Dollhouse” and “Ghost World” set the template for the kind of twee, adolescent-angst stories that reached their apotheosis a few years later with Fox Searchlight releases “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Little Miss Sunshine.” In either case, the movie does neither time period any real favors, being a funny-ish (but never outright funny) portrait of a high school girl whose biggest concern is her hair.

As such, the title “Permanent” refers to the chemical process (or “perm,” as the mainstream called it) made enviable by the likes of Meg Ryan, Stevie Nicks and Dolly Parton back when big hair and poodle-like ringlets were all the rage. It also describes the kind of damage that high school renders on teenagers everywhere, who carry the

The Voice Recap: Battle Stations!

The Voice Recap: Battle Stations!
It’s a cliché and a half to say that everything can change during The Voice’s Battles. In fact, if Carson Daly said it, I’m sure I’d roll my eyes. But it’s also, weirdly, true. Last season, I went into the Battles backing Felicia Temple and came out in awe of (eventual winner) Chris Blue. Going into Season 13’s Battles, my money was on… well, you know. However, I wouldn’t be in the slightest surprised if, by the time they were over, I was rooting for a different singer. Did Monday’s kickoff of the Battles,

Tom Petty’s ‘Don’t Come Around Here No More’: A Guide to Every Mad ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Reference
Rock star Tom Petty, who died Monday at 66, left behind a legacy of songs that reached inside and stirred the soul with a combination of frustration, wistfulness, rebellion, cynicism, elation, and restlessness. But Petty also might be remembered for some of the most iconic music videos of the 1980s — the heyday of MTV and VH1 as TV jukeboxes.

Petty’s landmark work included 1985’s psychedelic “Don’t Come Around Here No More, and The Atlantic digs in pretty deep into the backstory to how the song and video came about, which was inspired by an encounter between the Eurythmic’s Dave Stewart and Stevie Nicks.

Now the founding drummer is telling the tale of those formative years in Love That Burns: A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac, Volume One 1967–1974, a lavish new book by Genesis Publications due out Sept.
