10 Rare Cover Songs by Amy Winehouse That Demand Your Attention

23 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27, popular music lost one of its most talented young voices. She had stunned the world in 2006 with her breakthrough album, Back To Black, which showcased her larger-than-life vocal range and songwriting skills that belayed her tender years. By the end of her life Winehouse had become infamous for her personal problems and drug-fueled exploits, but her music will endure long after the tabloid headlines are forgotten. While most of her songs are autobiographical, featuring lyrics brimming with equal parts wit and vulnerability, she wasn't afraid to add her own unique twist to familiar tunes. »

Review: 'Horace and Pete' concludes as one of the very best dramas you'll see

4 April 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(This column starts off talking about Horace and Pete in relatively general terms, for the benefit of the people who still haven't watched but are curious about sampling it. I'll get to spoilers for the finale midway through, with another warning before that.) Horace and Pete, Louis C.K.'s drama about a Brooklyn bar that's been run by the same family for 100 years, came to an end over the weekend, with even less fanfare than it had on arrival. News of the first episode simply appeared in the inboxes of people on the LouisCK.net email list that just said "Go here to watch it. We hope you like it." Saturday morning, the email read, "I have nothing clever to say.  But I would like you very much to know that episode 10 of Horace and Pete is ready right here." That this was going to be the final episode »

21st-Century TV Artist Louis C.K. Aims High With the Aggressively Classical, Mostly Good Horace and Pete

10 February 2016 7:56 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s fitting and funny that Louis C.K.’s formal experiments would ultimately take him back in time 60 years, to the age of televised theater: Studio One, Playhouse 90, and the like. Over five seasons, he exhausted most, if not all, of the possibilities of his experimental comedy Louie — including multi-episode arcs that were basically feature films broken into pieces, two of which cast other actors as his same-named alter ego. Now he’s made a series that’s as aggressively classical as a 21st-century TV artist can get.  Horace and Pete, the “surprise” series C.K. released last week through his website, is old-school, save for its political and cultural references (super-recent) and its language (profane, of course — this is Louis C.K.). Were it not for C.K.’s roving, zooming camera and the brown-orange sets that echo stagey 1970s sitcoms like All in the Family, Horace and Pete »

Abe Vigoda, ‘Barney Miller’ and ‘Godfather’ Actor, Dies at 94

26 January 2016 11:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actor Abe Vigoda, best known for his roles as mobster Tessio in “The Godfather” and as Detective Sgt. Fish in TV’s “Barney Miller” and a spinoff series in which he starred, has died. He was 94 and died in New Jersey of natural causes, his daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs told the Associated Press.

The tall character actor with the characteristically slouched shoulders and hangdog face became something of a pop culture figure due to repeated false reports of his demise, which became the subject of jokes. Reflecting his somewhat odd celebrity was the existence of a punk rock band named Abe Vigoda; his recurring appearances in the late 2000s on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”; and the existence of a website named Isabevigodadead.com, which for years consisted simply of a blank page with the word No.

Vigoda made his feature debut in a bit part in Marcel Carne »
