Jane's Addiction To Headline Rhonda's Kiss Annual Concert

Rhonda’s Kiss, an organization that helps cancer patients in need, announced today that legendary rock band Jane's Addiction will perform at their annual concert event on Friday, Dec. 8 at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

Proceeds from the concert event will benefit the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute and further the mission of Rhonda’s Kiss, supporting programs to assist cancer patients in need, and helping those who receive a cancer diagnosis make ends meet during treatment. Rhonda’s Kiss is a 501c3. To date, the charity has donated nearly $1 million to hospitals to support cancer programs and patients.

“At Cedars-Sinai, it is our mission to treat the cancer patient as a whole, rather than just the disease,” said Amin Mirhadi, MD, radiation oncologist at the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute. “We are proud to collaborate with the Rhonda’s Kiss foundation to help us achieve that.

Gotham season 3 episode 2 review: Burn The Witch

Rob Leane Sep 27, 2016

Jim’s moral compass goes a bit wobbly in this rather fun second episode of Gotham season 3...

This review contains spoilers.

3.2 Burn The Witch

Holy moral compass malfunction, Batman! In my last review I was hoping that Gotham would start shaking up the stories revolving around Jim Gordon, to make the whole ‘he’s really changed’ thing seem more convincing. Looking at this week’s episode, I needn’t have worried.

Leather jackets and bottles of beer are the easy shorthand for ‘our protagonist is becoming a bit of a dick.’ And this week, that basic idea from the season premiere was fleshed out with some actual plot. It was genuinely shocking to see Jim let Fish Mooney go free at the end of the episode, to manipulate the Gcpd, to encourage Penguin’s mob, and to do nothing when Penguin was later seen celebrating after a fair number of people died.

How ‘The Wiz Live!’ and ‘Grease Live!’ Revitalized the TV Musical (Emmy Watch)

How ‘The Wiz Live!’ and ‘Grease Live!’ Revitalized the TV Musical (Emmy Watch)
“The Wiz Live!” and “Grease Live!” both continued the live musical revival that began with NBC’s “The Sound of Music Live!” in 2013, which drew a remarkable 18.4 million viewers.

NBC’s “The Wiz,” though, was designed more like a Broadway show with an eye on Broadway sometime in the future. “The Wiz” “lent itself more to theatrical environments because of its familiarity, because it’s fantasy, and because of its musical performances,” said production designer Derek McLane (“The Sound of Music Live!” and NBC’s “Peter Pan Live!”).

McLane collaborated with”Hamilton” Tony-winning costume designer Paul Tazewell on an organic world with different looks made for the culture of today.

“Kansas is not a happy place for Dorothy and that’s reflected in its neutral palette,” McLane continued. “Munchkinland is predominantly orange with cylindrical buildings that evoke the Munchkins. Emerald City is like a modern club with different shades of green and electrified.

“For the Y-m-c-a!”

Producer Charles Roven revealed this week that Suicide Squad – the film about a bunch of convicted supercriminal killers fighting other supercriminal killers – is aiming for a PG-13 rating. There’s something weirdly comforting about a world where eight-year-old kids can watch that kind of movie with parental guidance.

It seems as though nobody informed Jared Leto of this,

Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs movie review: dino crock

If you guessed that this is a cheap pre-Jurassic World cash-in, congratulations: you are smarter than this padded-out pile of cut-rate cinematic junk. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If you imagined that a new direct-to-dvd movie entitled Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs was a cheap pre-Jurassic World cash-in, congratulations: you have mental powers beyond those demonstrated by anyone onscreen or behind the scenes of this padded-out pile of cut-rate cinematic junk. The title is about as fact-based as the movie’s grasp of science, human relationships, digital effects, or storytelling. There’s only one cowboy, and he’s not much of a cowboy since that traumatic rodeo incident, and though he will get back up on that horse — literally — in order to battle some dinosaurs, this would more appropriately be called Girls in Tiny

Women in Leather Jackets: The TV Season So Far

Women in Leather Jackets: The TV Season So Far
The fall season is juuuust underway, and while a few stragglers will premiere in the rest of October, we're mostly up and running. So far, this season hasn't had any major new hits or any genre breakthroughs. But one thing is common across network and cable, comedy and drama, hit and underdog shows right now: Female characters are wearing a lot of leather. Leather jackets (and possibly faux-leather jackets) are everywhere, more than the reliable jean jacket or even the go-to black blazer. Generally, the jackets are there to represent toughness — or at least a "no-nonsense" attitude, as if there are people who love nonsense — but sometimes it's just to rough up an otherwise-cutesy sitcom ensemble. Leather for everyone! Please note, all these jackets are from this season, as in, within the last few weeks. Other characters have worn lots of leather jackets in the past — ahem, Olivia Benson —

Happy Birthday Elton John! What’s His Greatest “Lost” Single?

Today is Gaytron Saint Elton John‘s 67th birthday, and how do you pay tribute to one of the most successful musicians of … any time? In the past, we’ve counted down his greatest hits (my favorite – “Someone Saved My Life Tonight”), so this year let’s take a look at the flip side, his greatest songs that weren’t his biggest hits.

What are your favorite lesser-known Elton singles? The songs you never hear anywhere … except in the walkman in your mind.

Here are my top ten, in no particular order.

Victim Of Love – Do you remember Elton’s disco era? That’s because it mercifully only lasted one album, 1979′s Victim Of Love, which is one of the worst selling and reviewed albums of his career. And for good reason – it was his first album in which he didn’t write any of the songs or play any of the instruments,

Locarno 2013. The Question of Vintage, Part 2: Lionel Baier’s “Les grandes ondes (à l’ouest)”

  • MUBI
Lionel Baier is a Swiss filmmaker born in 1975, a teacher and an active cinéphile, the director of many documentaries and features, among them Garçon stupide, a refined fiction with a documentary posture (and something in common with the first films by Alain Guiraudie) and Un autre homme, a film about a film critic (a cousin to Louis Skorecki’s trilogy Les Cinéphiles).

Baier belongs to a generation of filmmakers who had to deal with the fact that they were coming “after.” After their own “masters” or mentors, after their own film culture. After the revolutionary movements of the 60s and 70s. After. A source of political and artistic angst that led to choices spanning from whining nostalgia to merciless caricature, from fake indifference to abstract reconstruction, from respectful tributes to philological or critical questioning.

Baier’s new film is a comedy set in 1974, a straightforward filmic charge against Switzerland's “help

Thn At Future Cinema’s Fantastic ‘Grease’ Event

As I write this at in the early hours of the morning, I’m still a wee bit drunk and very over excited. Seriously, I haven’t stopped singing ‘We Go Together’ for about an hour. Why? Because I’ve just returned home from a great night in Barnes, courtesy of the fantastic team at Future Cinema!

Arriving at the secret location dressed in full 1950’s attire (quiffs, Leather Jackets, the works), myself and my good friend James Docherty were instantly confronted by a bunch of T-Birds, who happened to be driving past in Grease Lightning itself, and welcomed back to Rydell High for the new semester. Walking on, we were encouraged by Coach Calhoun to try out for the Football Team, which resulted in us running at and tackling a petrified Eugene.

'Once Upon' Star Teases August's Identity

'Once Upon' Star Teases August's Identity
I have been obsessed with Eion Bailey since he introduced Xander to the wild ways of hyena people on a 1997 episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Since then, he's fought for "freedom" alongside Brad Pitt in Fight Club, stormed the beaches in Band of Brothers and dished out fruit tarts in Center Stage.

Currently he's playing August, hottie with a million secrets, on ABC's Once Upon A Time, which is really hitting its stride as it races toward the end of season one -- a destination that Eion's character plays a massive role in. Over the next two weeks, we'll come to learn a lot about August, so I caught up with Eion to get his take on the character while also finding a totally natural segue to talk about Center Stage.

Gay Girl’s Goggles: "Once Upon a Time" SnapCap (1.07) – The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

Jeepers H. Christmas, Once Upon a Time, I can't believe you had the balls to do what you said you were going to do! When promo monkeys go "and someone's going to diiiie," no one ever really dies! Someone gets maimed, maybe. Beaten down a little bit. A supporting character whose name we've never even known takes a bullet in the head. But literally squashing the literal heart of the the hottest dude on the show in the prime hour of his like/ship-ablility? Way to take it to eleven, Lost writers.

Afterellen Bait

"The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" is a really dude-centric episode of TV, which doesn't really rate very high on the Ae-baitometer on account of there are so many dude-centric episodes of TV walloping is in the face parts every week. But I'll be damned if it wasn't the best episode of Once Upon a Time to date.

TV Bad Boys We Love

  • The Backlot
Bad Boys. We love them. Even when we try to deny it, we know that a part of us gets starry-eyed at the leather, the attitude and the checkered pasts. It’s long been a cultural stereotype that girls love the bad boys, but in reality gay and bi men are just as susceptible to their charms. Ever since James Dean rumbled onto the big screen, people have been hooked.

Look into those eyes and try to resist...

But what is a Bad Boy, exactly? It used to be enough to simply be from "the wrong side of the tracks." But the concept has evolved over the years and today the Bad Boy is something more complicated and full of shades of gray. And sometimes a Bad Boy is really a bad boy, although that is a relatively new development when it comes to TV Bad Boys.

Lady Gaga's 'Judas' Video: The Key Scene

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for Lady Gaga's music video for "Judas"! The video is a colorful, kitschy pop-culture take on a love triangle between Mary Magdalene (Gaga), Judas (Norman Reedus) and Jesus (Rick Gonzalez), filled with religious pomp and circumstance, as well as very cool clothes. (We know this 'cause it leaked! Eeks!)

Gaga and her boys live someplace (we have no idea what time or place we are — hey, this must be a Gaga video!) where biker gangs run amok and couture is their currency. (How do we get to this place? Is it through some Born This Way vortex?) Leather jackets, bejeweled crowns and gowns rule the "Judas" world.

Now, while all the scenes are quite memorable (Gaga riding on a motorcycle clutching her love, Jesus, longing for Judas; Gaga in a black dress and habit torn between her two loves; Gaga's lipstick gun
