Book Review: "Rushtoons By Fantoons Vol. 2112"

10 July 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Review by Todd Garbarini

Rush is a band that has never taken itself seriously. In the 33 years I have followed The Boys, I have come to regard them as musicians who have no trouble making fun of themselves and this is an aspect of their personalities that endears them to so many of us. The band’s use of the Three Stooges theme to open many of their concerts since the 1980’s and their amusing videos that open and close their later tours are proof that they don’t take themselves seriously.

In keeping in the spirit of such silliness, David Calcano’s 2015 book Rushtoons by Fantoons Vol. 2112 is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to our favorite band by some world-class artists who have created some beautiful cartoons that ape and good-naturedly poke fun at Rush’s famous album covers, making visual puns and humorous references to imagery that is as synonymous »

29 March 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This is not the first time Archer has drastically changed the format for a whole season. Season five was Archer Vice, a pastel, florescent spoof of Miami Vice.

Larry David on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

7 February 2016 8:40 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It may not have the buzz or attention as last year, but Saturday Night Live is quietly having another great season. That's an incredibly unhip thing to say, as bashing the show seems like a national pastime for many, especially those that don't actually watch it. It's been a great 16+ months for the show, full of renewed energy and surprises. In that respect, Larry David fits right into the show's current renaissance: His impression of Bernie Sanders last fall was surprising yet, in retrospect, almost inevitable. It wasn't surprising that »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ premiered

1 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

34 years ago today, a new talk show favorite was born when Late Night with David Letterman debuted. Letterman hosted Late Night on NBC until 1993, when the network chose Jay Leno over Letterman to take Johnny Carson’s place as host of The Tonight Show. Letterman then moved to CBS and launched Late Show with David Letterman. On both Late Night’s first show in 1982 and Late Show’s first episode in 1993, Bill Murray was the first guest. He was a frequent guest on both, with 44 appearances between the two shows. In the final episode of Late Show with David Letterman last May, Murray presented item No. 1 on the show’s star-studded final Top 10 list. Other notable February 1 happenings in pop culture history: • 1896: Giacomo Puccini opera La bohème had its world premiere in Turin, Italy. 100 years later, the massive popularity-bound musical Rent premiered in New York — Jonathan Larson based Rent »

Dakota Johnson Admits to Watching Her Parents Film Sex-Scenes as a Kid

28 January 2016 11:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well, that's cringeworthy. Growing up with famous parents, Dakota Johnson was no stranger to a film set as a kid. She would often accompany her mom, Working Girl actress Melanie Griffith, and dad, Miami Vice star Don Johnson, to their various film shoots and watch them work. But sometimes, she saw a little more than she bargained for. "I was around for a lot of it and I would watch them," Johnson told Net-a-Porter.com's The Edit Magazine. "But there were also things I could see that I didn't want to, like watch my parents have sex with other people. »

Remembering Eagles Guitarist Glenn Frey's First Film, 'Let's Get Harry'

19 January 2016 9:16 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

First, there was the popular video — a mini-movie, really — for his hit single, ''Smuggler's Blues.'' Then there was his well-received guest spot as a seedy pilot on the Miami Vice episode based on the same song. And now, Glenn Frey, the singer-composer who continues to soar on the charts long after leaving The Eagles, has a key supporting role in a feature film: "Let's Get Harry," an action-adventure set to open Friday nationwide. What's next? The romantic lead in a Hollywood blockbuster? “If I could stretch that far,” Frey said a few days ago in his Inn on the Park suite, “I would like that. But with my limited experience in this field, I'm looking for safe parts right now. I don't want to overextend myself, or have a French accent, or do something I might not be able to handle at this early stage of my acting development. »

‘The Simpsons’ Goes ’80s With Epic New Opening Credits (Video)

7 January 2016 7:46 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“The Simpsons” is going full ’80s this Sunday, and the epic opening credits will have you missing the mayhem of “Miami Vice.” The new episode, titled “Teenage Mutant Milk-Caused Hurdles,” launches with Homer channeling Don Johnson in a white suit, pastel T-shirt, aviator sunglasses and rippling muscles as he is catapulted via his couch into the world of “La-z Rider.” A mashup of crime-fighting, gun-toting, speedboat-riding, bad guy-chasing — with Ned Flanders making an appearance as Fernando Whitmore — follows, all to a jaunty ’80s soundtrack.
