Born John Warren Geils Jr., the guitarist formed The J. Geils Band while attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Geils teamed up with bassist Danny "Dr. Funk" Klein and harmonic player Richard "Magic Dick" Salwitz in 1967.

The group saw early success with their forays into blues rock, but exploded in popularity in the 1980s, when they began focusing on mainstream new wave rock.

28 Best Drunk Scenes in Film

28 Best Drunk Scenes in Film
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, arguably the biggest drinking holiday of the year, we looked at some of the best drunk moments to grace the silver screen. From Humphrey Bogart’s classic, heartbreaking “of all the gin joints” speech in “Casablanca,” to the utterly ridiculous scene in “Team America” when the puppets spew their guts up, here are the 28 best drunk scenes on film.

Leaving Las Vegas” — Booze Run

Although not a traditional “drunk scene,” the opening scene of “Leaving Las Vegas” — which sees Nicolas Cage’s Ben Sanderson dancing through a liquor aisle piling his cart sky high with booze — is as good a prelude to this list as any.

Arthur” — Introducing Princess Gloria

Dudley Moore’s Arthur spends the majority of the film tipping back drinks, but his introduction of “Princess Gloria” to his aunt and uncle at a restaurant — and his insistence that Rhode Island could

How Cell Phones Would Have Ruined Most of Our Favorite Movies

How Cell Phones Would Have Ruined Most Of Our Favorite Movies

By

Alex Simon

If you’re a pop culture maven, most likely it can be agreed that the modern cell phone can be traced back to two classic TV series of the 1960s: Star Trek and Get Smart. Captain James Tiberius Kirk and his USS Enterprise crew were always armed with their “communicators” when traveling abroad on a distant planet. They were palm-sized devices with covers the flipped open, providing instant connection with the orbiting space ship. This design was aped, no doubt, by former Trekkies for the classic “flip phone” design that ruled the high-tech roost in the late 90s and early millennium.

Secret Agent 86 Maxwell Smart had his shoe phone, surely the most creative (and ridiculous) example of technology ever invented by someone who was most likely thought to be a creative and scientific genius. However, it

10 Adam Sandler Films That Actually Didn’t Suck

With the release of yet another terrible Adam Sandler movie in Grown Ups 2 (you can read my review here) it would be easy to stick the knife in and trot out every awful movie the much-criticised comic actor has ever made. But I figured I should head in a different direction and present 10 Sandler movies that actually don’t suck.

It’s important to remember that it wasn’t always this grim for Sandler. At one point he was a star of Saturday Night Live, which opened doors up to bigger and better opportunities. And throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s Sandler was a bankable name guaranteeing that your hard earned dollars would be well spent on something funny. But then sometime during the mid- 2000’s Sandler unfortunately stopped caring about producing quality content and nowadays is a guarantee that the movie is a steaming pile of dung.

Eminem Raps ‘I Nailed J. Lo’ On Shocking New Track

Eminem is rapping some interesting allegations, claiming he ‘nailed J. Lo’ in a new song! The real Slim Shady with Jenny from the Block? Say it isn’t so!

Eminem, who is set to release his eighth studio album later this year, is featured in fellow rapper Tony Touch‘s new song ”Symphony in H,” and his raps reveal more than we ever wanted to know about his sexual history — like, did Eminem really “nail” Jennifer Lopez?

Eminem Raps He ‘Nailed’ Jennifer

The rap superstar has some interesting rhymes on the Tony Touch track. He even claims that he uses his Oscar (that he won for his song in 8 Mile) as a “door stop.” That’s no way to treat an Oscar, Eminem!

Good News For Eminem Fans

Good News For Eminem Fans
Eminem's return to the rap game is official.

The 40-year-old rapper teased "Symphony in H" this week with a 1:30 minute clip. The track is Em at his finest -- quick and harsh, over a catchy beat. "Love stinks, that explains all this anger that's spilling out, and I ain't chilling out / Got an Oscar, but I'm still a grouch," Eminem raps in "Symphony in H." Take a listen to the teaser above.

The song reportedly first leaked on DJ Tony Touch's Sirius radio show. "Symphony in H" will make its full debut on Touch's upcoming mixtape, "The Piece Maker 3: Return Of The 50 Mc's," hitting stores July 9.

Marshall Mathers, who is expected to release his own album later this year, took to Twitter to publicize the track.

'Real World Portland' videos: Preview 'Sins of the Flesh (eaters)'

Love stinks for (almost) everybody in the next episode of "Real World Portland" on MTV. In Tuesday's "Sins of the Flesh (eaters)," Jessica has problems in her relationship with Tyler, Averey and Johnny fight after a possible flirtation at the bar, and Marlon wrestles with his faith after a night of casual sex.

It's all very dramatic. Preview the drama now with three video clips from the episode.

First up, Averey gets love advice over the phone, who is thinking of moving to Massachusetts to live with or near Johnny.

Granny is a smart woman, telling the girl not to move for a boy -- especially since she has done it before.

How smart exactly are we talking about? Judging from this next video, Averey's grandmother knows her all too well. And Averey might want to rethink this whole Johnny thing.

Seeing only this little clip, it is hard to

Nashville Recap: Sleazy Come, Sleazy Go

At the outset, this week’s Nashville seems like a happy affair. Scarlett is set to make her Grand Ole Opry debut, Rayna is ready to announce her new label and Gunnar is building buzz about his new song. Even Juliette – who’s seriously not thrilled to pay off Dante for a blackmail sex tape – is ready to hand over the cash and watch the problem fade away in time for the CMAs.

Nothing terrible happens… until lots of terrible things happen. Quickly. In ways that will only lead to even more terrible things happening. Did I mention the dead bodies?

B-Sides: Welcome to Fright Night

By now you’ve probably seen the Kid Cudi music video for the Fright Night 3D remake - a future B-Sides in the making, no doubt. But how does it compare to the J. Geils Band’s theme song from the original Fright Night?

J. Geils Band made quite a splash in the early Eighties with hits like “Centerfold” and “Love Stinks” and “Freeze Frame”. Lead singer Peter Wolf left the band in 1983 to pursue a rather unsuccessful solo career. Seth Justman took over the vocals for the band’s only album before breaking up in 1985.

The final song from J. Geils Band before fading into pop music oblivion would be the incredibly Eighties sounding title track from Tom Holland's little 1985 vampire flick titled Fright Night...

While the debate rages over the merits or lack thereof of the new Fright Night in 3D, here’s the last hurrah of

Net Crawl: Jason Bateman Recreates “Teen Wolf Too” Scene With Jimmy Fallon

Jason Bateman, who has his latest comedy The Change Up, hitting theaters today, has had a career resurgence based on his hilarious comedic performances. Few young folks would remember him from the sequel Teen Wolf Too, where he replaced Michael J. Fox. Now he and Jimmy Fallon on ‘Late Night’ decided to recreate a scene with Fallon from the film. He showed a clip of Bateman intimidating a woman at school and then re-did it with Fallon as the old lady. It was … well, about as good as the original actually.

Neither could quite stay in character, and we couldn’t help laughing along as Fallon overacted both the disdain at Bateman’s character and then ultimately the fear as he “wolfed” out a bit, intimidating her. It didn’t quite make us want to go watch ‘Teen Wolf Too,’ but it did make us want to see them recreate

Jason Bateman and Jimmy Fallon Recreate a Scene From 'Teen Wolf Too' (Video)
Filed under: Reality-Free, TV Replay

Jason Bateman is known now as a go-to guy for solid, hilarious comedic performances. But he's long been a staple of great cinema, as evidenced by his star turn in 'Teen Wolf Too.' He stepped into the big -- well okay, little -- shoes of Michael J. Fox and blew Jimmy Fallon away on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37Am Et on NBC).

'American Idol' Recap: Pia Kills, As James Weeps

Wednesday night's "American Idol" was supposed to be all about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But leave it to Jimmy Iovine's sleepwalking producers and Nigel Lythgoe's showbiz pizzazz to make it rock softer than an Air Supply acoustic album.

That's not to say the top nine of "American Idol X: Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain" didn't give it their all and then some. This may go down as the sweatiest "Idol" episode ever. Did Idolland's air conditioning break, or is there a fire within these contestants causing them to look like James Brown on Pcp?

As an added challenge this week, producers handicapped the girls by forcing them to wear Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. collection of leopard-print diapers and silk tube-top jumpsuits. I guess they really don't want the Season 10 "Idol" to have a vagina. Paging Gloria Steinem!

"I'm From a Part of Town Called Lima Heights Adjacent" | This Week on "Glee"

  • Pajiba
There's always a weird balance with shows on "Glee" that don't feature Sue Sylvester. I find myself walking away not realizing I missed her or writhing in agony from the loss. Generally, the latter happens when it's a Will Schuester centric episode, but last night I got the former. I suppose they've done enough with Sue's "Love stinks" mentality and decided to forgo her contribution for this episode. Although, to be honest, I'd have love to seen how one spends Valentine's Day when one is one's own spouse.

But without Sue, this episode of "Glee" flourished. Love was in the air with the kids at McKinley and Dalton. First up Blaine asks Kurt for some love advice about a guy; Kurt assumes that the guy Blaine is asking advice for is Kurt and basically agrees with any suggestions that he might like. Unfortunately, though it should come as no surprise,

Week in Review: Happily Ever After Best Left to the Movies

The phones at Billable Hours & Sons were blowing up this week. If a celeb wasn't being nominated for a Golden Globe or SAG Award, he was getting divorced—or, in Michael C. Hall's case, both!—meaning, endless calls to the lawyers and endless congratulatory texts from friends, family, agents and publicists. Then again, the biggest split was between people who are neither married nor of legal age to rent a car in California, proving you don't have to be hitched—or 25—to suffer the sting of a high-profile breakup. Puppy Love Stinks: Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, who met when they were teenagers on the set of High School Musical, didn't last forever? Stfu! We'd...

Rosie Cosch... Got the Part!

After a 15-year hiatus from acting, Rosie Cosch is back doing what she loves. In mid-June, she saw a casting notice on BackStage.com for "Love Stinks," a one-act play in New York's Midtown International Theatre Festival, and she thought it would be a great way to get back into the industry. Cosch hoped that getting cast would be an opportunity to network and build a new—or, in her case, second—career.The Westchester County, N.Y., native had always thought she was an actor: putting on plays in the neighborhood as a little girl, running through the house singing songs from "Annie," participating in school productions from grammar school through college. But her family had strong ideas about her going into the established family fashion business."My father was a designer," Cosch explains. "I never thought I'd have the possibility to fulfill my own acting dreams." So she

caption this! image from ‘Youth in Revolt’

Fun for Wednesdays! We look at an image from an upcoming movie or TV show and write snarky, witty, or otherwise entertaining captions for it. No prizes, it’s just for fun. Love stinks: Dimension Films tells us about the film: In the tradition of Catcher in the Rye, and starring Michael Cera (also of the Oscar® winning film, Juno, and Superbad), Youth In Revolt is a coming-of-age comedy that puts a fresh and outrageous stamp on a tale of adolescent obsession and rebellion. Based on the acclaimed novel by C.D. Payne, Youth In Revolt is the story of Nick Twisp – a unique, but affable teen with a taste for the finer things in life like Sinatra and Fellini – who falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful, free-spirited Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday) while on a family vacation. But family, geography and jealous ex-lovers conspire to keep these two apart.
