Recap: 'American Idol' Season 13 - Top 6 Performances - Country & Rock Night

23 April 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're down to six on "American Idol" and the singers are doing double-duty on Wednesday (April 23) night. Alex, Jena, Caleb, Cj, Jessica and Sam will each sing one song dubbed "Country" and another song deemed "Rock."  Two quick thoughts: 1) Dexter Roberts picked the wrong week to go home. If ever a theme would have helped ease Dexter along in his "Idol" genre, this would have been it. 2) For all of the Judges' Save thing, this week's theme seems to doom Sam Woolf, doesn't it? I continue to suspect that Jena, Caleb and Alex are in their own voting class. And of the remaining three singers, who can pretty much go home in any order as far as I'm concerned, two of them can be comfortably classed in a country-rock niche and the other one is Sam Woolf. Either we're about to see some impressive theme cheating from Sam, or else he's doomed before he begins. »

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 13 - Top 8 Performances - Back to the Start Night

2 April 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So tonight's "American Idol" theme is basically Deja Vu? Weird.  Wednesday's (April 2) "Idol" theme is officially Back to the Start and it apparently means that we're going to be hearing the Top 8 sing the songs they auditioned with. Are we really deep enough into this season to be getting repeat performances? Don't we want to hear singers do fresh things? I do. But maybe I'm wrong? To me, this feels like a theme that's intended to help sagging frontrunners like Sam Woolf, but what do I know. Click through and we'll celebrate what is sure to be a filler-filled telecast together... 8:00 p.m. We've got eight performers and two hours. Are we going to get to duos this week? Trios? Something so that this isn't just wheel-spinning for a full two hours? 8:01 p.m. The filler starts with a tribute to funny moments from the judges in the auditions, »

Creepy Clown Stalks the Streets of Staten Island

25 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

There's nothing more frightening than a clown who's more interested in spreading fear than cheer, and a few of them have leapt off the big screen in recent months, moving from the fictional world into the real world. First, the British town of Northampton was terrorized by a rash of evil clown sightings and then an armed clown stalked pedestrians in Australia, though thankfully neither of them actually ended up hurting anyone. Now, it's Staten Island, New York that a creepy clown is calling home...

As reported by Staten Island Live, several residents of the New York borough have posted images on social media of a man they've been spotting in the area since last week, dressed as uber creepy clown Pennywise, from Stephen King's It. Much like the Northampton clown, the Staten Island clown isn't doing much other than waving and posing for pictures, though his mere presence is »

The man who’s always there: Carter Burwell’s collaborations with the Coen Bros.

29 January 2014 9:34 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In his 30-year career as a composer, Carter Burwell’s film scores have run the veritable cinematic gamut. From composing for Spike Jonze (Being John MalkovichAdaptation., Where the Wild Things Are) to his work being the best parts of the Twilight saga, Burwell’s résumé is sporadic and unconventional, even for a man who makes film music for a living — it’s fitting, given his less-than-conventional roots as a cartoonist for The Harvard Lampoon and later as a vagrant New York punk rocker. Undoubtedly, Burwell’s become best known for the his collaborations with Joel and Ethan Coen. Last week, Sound on Sight ranked the films of the Coen Brothers, so what better way to take over The Big Score than with a similarly themed meditation on their work with Burwell? As much as the Coens’ filmography is defined by their trademark cynicism and wit, Burwell’s compositions are »
