Heroin: art and culture's last taboo

21 December 2013 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It wrecks lives – but it has also inspired art from the poetry of Baudelaire to the music of Lou Reed. In Paris and Berlin, Andrew Hussey traces the path of heroin through modern culture

One of the easiest places to find heroin in Paris is in the streets in and around the Gare du Nord, a stone's throw away from the Eurostar terminal. I know about this place partly because I live in Paris and I am a frequent Eurostar traveller, and partly because this is where Google sent me when I typed in the request "Where to find heroin in Paris". Apparently the most popular spot for dealing is the rue Ambroise-Paré which contains a series of entrances to underground car parks where users can shoot up in relative privacy. The place permanently stinks of piss and is under constant police surveillance, as dealers and clients scurry back and forth between their hiding places. »

‘PR’ Dom Streater: ‘Honored’ To Be The First African-American Winner

18 October 2013 11:06 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Congratulations, Dom! The designer says she managed to stay out of the drama this season on ‘Project Runway,’ earning her the winning spot! See what else she had to say about her big win.

Dom Streater persevered through season 12 with one goal in mind: beating out her competition and bringing home the winning title of Project Runway! Now she just has to decide one thing- what to design next! She will receive a whopping $500,000 to design her next collection, and if it’s anything like we’ve seen this season, it will definitely be fabulous!

Dom Streater Wins Project Runway:

This season of Project Runway was particularly fierce because so many contestants were amazingly talented. The final challenge was a difficult one — design “washable fabrics,” along with finalizing the makeup, hair, and fittings before presenting it at the finale during Fashion Week. “I didn’t want to get caught up in the drama, »

More Spoilers From "Sons Of Anarchy" - Season 6

30 August 2013 2:50 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more Season 6 story spoilers and footage from showrunner Kurt Sutter, creator of the FX  'biker' dramatic action TV series "Sons Of Anarchy", debuting September 10, 2013:

Asked how long actor Ron Perlman’s despicable 'Samcro' leader, killer, gun-runner will be behind bars in Season 6, Sutter acknowledged that the character backed himself into quite a corner.

"That’s a rough one", Sutter said. "We’re going to have to play out that storyline a little bit to know exactly where it goes. We’re still kind of figuring out the ramifications of everything in terms of where he lands".

"The interesting thing is by having the two people he loved most in terms of the club, 'Juice' and 'Gemma', kind of turn on him. 

"I do think there was a moment where, even though you despise 'Clay' to an extent, you actually felt sorry for this guy. So yeah, there »

Meg Wolitzer: 'The character is not standing for women everywhere. I had to write that on my forehead'

10 August 2013 12:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The novelist talks to Emma Brockes about friendship, rivalry and being a '30-year overnight success'

Fiction asks a lot of people, says Meg Wolitzer, "to tell them that you need to learn about these characters, to take time out in your day from being frightened for your livelihood and your children, to think about Susan and Bill, who don't exist. It's a nervy thing to ask." She asks it of herself every time she sits down to write – "What fiction ought to do" – and the answer had better be good. "The anxiety makes me a stronger writer."

The Interestings, Wolitzer's ninth novel, is more ambitious than any she has written so far, tracking a group of friends from the moment they meet, at summer camp, up through the decades of their lives. It has done very well in the Us, so that at 54, Wolitzer has become, as a friend joked to her recently, »

Jennifer Lawrence Freaks Out Meeting Jeff Bridges

25 July 2013 6:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

She's won an Oscar, but that hasn't changed Jennifer Lawrence - she acted just like a regular fan when she ran into an actor she liked at Comic-Con in San Diego. The Hunger Games star, 22, got flustered when she spotted Jeff Bridges in the same press room at the event and rushed towards him to say hello before running the other way in a panic - and it was all caught on camera! (Skip to the 2:30 mark for the action below.) In the video posted by Extra, Lawrence finally gets up the courage to try again, and she steps »

Listen: Exclusive Song From Music World Drama 'Filly Brown'

26 April 2013 8:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last month, we brought you an exclusive dubstep track from the SXSW thriller "Snap." Co-directed by Youssef Delara, the film featured msuic by longtime industry veteran and musician Reza Safinia, but it wasn't the first time they worked together. They had previously collaborated on "Filly Brown," which premiered at Sundance in 2012. And with that picture now out in theaters, we have another exclusive track to share with you.  Starring Gina Rodriguez -- who also sings on the tune along with Diamonique -- the film follows young Latina rap star who is offered a shot at the big time, but has to choose between compromising her artistic ideals and abandoning her friends or making her lifelong dream come true. This remix of "This Is My Life" adds some speaker shaking bass drops, adding to a whole other dimension to what had originally been a more straightforward hip hop song. "Reza drew »

The Smoak show: 'Arrow' star Emily Bett Rickards on Felicity, Oliver, and some big life changes

24 April 2013 12:59 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If you're poking around in the "Arrow" tags on your social media site of choice, it won't take long for a clear fan favorite to emerge: Felicity Smoak. Brilliant, sarcastic, and less polished than your typical CW heroine, Felicity is the prime example of why "Arrow," a seemingly male-driven show, has had great success with its dynamic, strong female characters.

When Emily Bett Rickards, a relative unknown from Vancouver, was hired to play Felicity, it wasn't supposed to be a recurring gig. It wasn't even a guest-starring role. Now, she's been a standout guest star in a majority of recent episodes, and been promoted to series regular status for Season 2. "I was a day player, sooo my life has changed, to say the least," she says. "I'm thrilled. I don't know how else to put it. I am the happiest person."

"I remember shooting my first scene with Emily ... way back in early August, »

Jennifer Lawrence's (Coolest) Fan, Jack Nicholson, Crashes Her Interview

26 February 2013 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jennifer Lawrence has a surprise superstar fan! The shocked look on the Hollywood darling's face when she won the Best Actress statuette during Sunday's 85th Annual Academy Awards may have been topped with the look she gave when approached by Jack Nicholson, shortly after the show. "Oh, you've got a fan here," Good Morning America host, George Stephanopoulos, pointed out as Nicholson, 75, crept behind the newly minted Oscar winner, 22. "Such a beautiful job," the actor told a gasping Lawrence. "I know I'm crashing your interview." After Nicholson walks away, Lawrence throws her head in her hands, shouting, "Oh, my god! »

Supernatural 8.14 Recap: "Hellraisers" Part 1

14 February 2013 3:52 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Hey folks! Like Supernatural after a severe two and a half year slump, I. Am. Back. So first, I’d like to thank Arik for doing the spectacular job of guarding my mantle. Secondly, since I missed last week’s discussion thread, obviously, a shoutout to Dean’s minor “gay thing” crisis. It was awesome to see Dean flushing under the guy’s attention.

We open with a montage of Kevin in his quest to translate their half of the Demon Tablet. After a month or so of working diligently and existing on the standard diet of Aspirin and Caffeine, he somehow manages to complete the task... and collapses with a nose bleed. Holy Crap!

Last week, the Winchesters found the Men Of Letters Head Quarters (Mol-hq) and went about moving in. This week, Dean finishes adding the final touches to his room. It seems that he has emptied the »

Writers Guild East Awards Ceremony to Tribute Nora Ephron; Watch Live Broadcast of WGA West

13 February 2013 11:16 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Writers Guild East has announced a tribute to writer-director Nora Ephron (1941-2012), to be presented at the guild's East Coast awards ceremony on February 17. The nominees are here. The tribute will be led by author Meg Wolitzer, whose novel "This Is My Life" was adapted and directed by Ephron in 1992. Wolitzer will speak and show a video clip presentation. During Ephron's nearly four-decade career in the film industry, she penned or co-penned (often with sister Delia) 14 produced screenplays, and directed eight films. She was nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar three times -- in 1984, 1990 and 1993 -- for, respectively, "Silkwood," "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle." Our Toh! obit to Ephron is here. The Writers Guild Awards' West coast ceremony (East and West happen simultanously) will be broadcast live here on February 17; Nathan Fillion will host.

Nora Ephron Tribute Set For WGA Awards

13 February 2013 8:59 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Nora Ephron, the quintuple-threat director and screenwriter and playwright and author and columnist, died in June after quietly battling leukemia. She had been a staunch WGA member and received the WGA East’s Ian McClellan Hunter Award in 2003 honoring motion picture work, so this tribute set for the WGA’s New York awards show February 17 is fitting — she never won the guild award despite nominations for a heavy-hitter list of movies (Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally..., Sleepless In Seattle and Julie & Julia). Her last play, Lucky Guy, is set to begin previews on Broadway next month with Tom Hanks and Maura Tierney starring. Here’s the guild’s release announcing plans: New York City – Writers Guild of America, East today announced a tribute to award-winning, screenwriter, director, playwright, author, and Guild, East member Nora Ephron.

John Ostrander: Freelancers Live Without A Net

6 January 2013 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As the comics world knows, writer Peter David recently had a stroke. I’ve known Peter for a long time and I both respect and often envy his talent, skill and the breadth of his work. Peter has health insurance but there are plenty of bills that just won’t get covered and, as pointed out here on ComicMix, fans who want to show financial support can do so by purchasing his work at Crazy 8 Press. That’s incredibly easy; not only do your help Peter and his family but will probably get a damn fine read out of it at the same time. Like I said, Peter is a very talented writer.

Peter’s better prepared (as far as anyone can be prepared for something like this) than many in the field; he has health insurance and most other freelancers – including myself – don’t. It’s hard to get, »
