If you’re a fan of action movies, particularly those that went direct to video in the 1990′s, you might know the name Maria Ford. A recurring co-star of Don “The Dragon” Wilson (she appeared alongside Wilson in four of his films, including Futurekick, Ring of Fire 1 & 2 and Night Hunter), Ford was also a staple performer in many of Roger Corman’s Dtv efforts in the same decade…
However for everyone who isn’t a hardcore action movie nerd like myself (or indeed if you didn’t grow vicariously through VHS rental during the decade), Maria Ford is probably a name you won’t recognise, but a face you will. With over 50 credits to her name, she’s appeared everything from sleazy skin flicks such as The Key to Sex to family-friendly comedies such as Addams Family Reunion and Beethoven’s 5th…
These are 10 of her best films:

"My mom offers to pay me money every week to take it out. I say no just to spite her. I'm sure I am going to have to take it out soon because I am not a teenager. But I quite like fighting my mom still — and she keeps offering me more and more money. I'm just going to see how high I can take it." That is breakout U.K. soul singer Jessie Ware talking to Pitchfork on the subject of her nose ring; we mention it here because it is charming, and also because the nose ring is once again on display in the video for "Night Light," off her debut album Devotion. Also featured: human-sized sock puppets, waterless synchronized swimming, curtain dancing, mesh cloche hats, and general coolness. Actually, Jessie Ware is cool enough at this point that she could probably accept the thousand quid from her »

Jessie Ware has confirmed the title of her new single to Digital Spy. The singer will release 'Night Light' on October 22 as the latest track from her debut album Devotion. Discussing the song at the launch of MTV Brand New 2013, she told Digital Spy: "It was a toss-up between 'Wildest Moments' and 'Night Light' of which one we'd release first. I think it will work well for the autumn. "I feel like it's a sassy ballad and I thought I could throw a few diva moves in it. We just shot the video and I think it'll look fantastic." The star, who previously featured on tracks by Sampha and Sbtrkt, insisted that she wants to "keep on doing (more) »

What is myocardial infarction? Alex Trebek has been hospitalized after suffering a minor heart attack, but it doing well, and will be ready to start taping the 29th season of Jeopardy! next month.
The Republican Party has decided that the Air Force is hostile to religion after they removed the line “if you attend chapel regularly, both officers and Airmen are likely to follow this example. If you are morally lax in your personal life, a general moral indifference within the command can be expected” from their Squadron Officer Training school manual. Having been in the Air Force, they're anything but hostile to religion. I recall in basic training the choice to either go to church on Sunday morning or stay and clean the barracks. Even I went. They confuse not pressuring people to have a religion with being hostile to religion.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
The White Stripes split up. The Black Keys hit their success into the stratosphere. Death From Above 1979 reform. It’s all go in the world of the rock ‘n’ roll guitar/drum garage duos. So it looks set to continue with us Brits getting in our foot (feet?) in on the hullaballo.
Formed in 2004 it’s been a long time coming for Blood Red Shoes to stake their claim as ‘go to duo’, but with The White Stripes stricken from the record, The Black Keys success at an all time high because of the aforementioned split and their constant mining of the garage blues well, Dfa 1979 as unpredictable as ever and this reunion likely to be short lived; what better time than now?
2012 (specifically March 26th) sees the release of their third studio album, their strongest album yet and their best shot at the big leagues. »

2011 has been a brilliant year for music. There’s been so many good, and varied, releases that it’s been hard to wittle down a top ten of what we think were the best releases of the year. Eventually, we managed to settle on our choices and the list is as diverse as it is strong. If you haven’t heard any on the list, then listen to them the first opportunity you get.
