Whatever and Ever Amen at 20: Ben Folds’ Track by Track Commentary on the ’90s Piano Rock Classic

1 hour ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lugging a baby grand piano onto a punk club stage in the ’90s was about conspicuous as bringing a baby elephant—and twice as inconvenient. But any patrons who feared that they were about to endure a Gershwin recital were soon set straight by Ben Folds, frontman and primary songwriter of Chapel Hill, North Carolina’s Ben Folds Five. Flanked by an explosive rhythm section in the form of stickman Darren Jessee and bassist Robert Sledge (PSA: the Five are actually three), Folds earned a reputation as the Jimi Hendrix of the piano—a violent virtuoso who punished all 88 keys »

Jimmy Fallon Imagines a (Terrifying) World With a Donald Trump-Owned News Network

22 February 2017 7:40 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Are you sick of the dishonest liberal media constantly spreading fake news? Do you cringe at the thought of any fact that isn't an "alternative" one that suits your beliefs? Would you prefer to hear about imaginary terror attacks in Sweden rather than the current refugee crisis? Then Trump News Network is probably for you! Like Alec Baldwin on SNL, Jimmy Fallon is choosing to deal with the everyday absurdity of our nation's president with humor (a welcome change from humanizing a man who brags about sexual assault). His skit on The Tonight Show on Tuesday, though funny, feels all too real as he imagines a world with a Trump-owned news network. "It's the only news network that's 100 percent fair and 112 percent factual," he jokes, before warning everyone that a Godzilla attack on Finland is imminent.

How about Alex Trebek rapping on Jeopardy! tonight pic.twitter.com/MNy9CEkf1p - Kenny Ducey (@KennyDucey) February 21, 2017 Alex Trebek might be 76 years old, but that doesn't mean he's not hip. In addition to dealing out some serious burns to Jeopardy! contestants, the veteran host also might be a closet hip-hop fan. During Monday night's episode of the game show, he no doubt inspired a new Saturday Night Live skit while rapping (Ok, rap-reading) lyrics to songs by Kanye West, Drake, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, and Desiigner for a category titled, "Let's Rap, Kids!" Trebek, who's hosted the show since 1984, was apparently just as amused saying the lyrics as we were hearing them. "I was just getting into this rap thing," he joked after finishing off the category. "I'm not too good at it but I was getting into it." Looks like that time he rapped The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air »

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey

21 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

Jordan Peele’s Second Act: How the ‘Key & Peele’ Comedy Star Became a Bonafide Horror Director With ‘Get Out’

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jordan Peele’s latest career incarnation could have been fodder for “Key & Peele,” the hit Comedy Central sketch show in which he and Keegan-Michael Key skewered modern racial issues. But Peele wrote had written a horror movie about race, and it needed a director. That created a challenge: After William Crain (“Blacula”), Bill Gunn (“Ganja & Hesse”), and Ernest Dickerson (“Bones,” “The Walking Dead”), how many black horror directors can you name? (The savviest genre fans out there might also remember James Bond III, very much a real person, who directed “Def By Temptation” 27 years ago.)

Needless to say, it was slim pickings. “I first pitched this as a movie no one would make,” Peele said. “About halfway through writing the script, I realized I was the only person who could direct it.”

However, Peele’s feature directing debut, “Get Out,” also brings him into the rarified class of horror directors »
