TV survivalists: who's the hardest?

26 July 2011 8:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Keeping warm in the wild by sleeping in the freshly gutted carcasses of deer, the likes of Bear Grylls and Mykel Hawke were climbing Everest when their contemporaries were still learning how to roll a joint…

The word "survivalist" used to be associated with groups of mostly American, mostly Christian millenarians who spent their weekends eagerly anticipating the End of Days. Since this was mostly imagined to be a thermonuclear war that would completely disrupt the local, regional, national and international social and political order and ravage the planet's food supplies, young right-wing Christians were taught self-defence and self-sufficiency. With the advent of reality TV the survivalist really took off – there are now a host of programmes devoted to undergoing the extremes of nature.

Glee Takes On Fleetwood Mac's Rumours: What Other Albums Should They Do?

17 March 2011 11:06 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

At this week's PaleyFest, Glee creator Ryan Murphy announced that the show is going to devote an episode to Fleetwood Mac's album Rumours. As a Fleetwood Mac fan, I loved the recent performance of "Landslide," but I'm glad that the old-school band will really get its due on the series. The cast has used artists as episode themes before, but they haven't taken the whole-album approach yet. My assumption is that this will open the door for other album-centric episodes, and I already have my ideas, like The Beatles' Abbey Road, David Bowie's Let's Dance, or Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds. It's a bigger challenge when you're thinking of an album in its entirety, so I'd love to hear what suggestions you guys have. What whole albums could the Glee cast perform? »

Throughout his long and storied career, David Bowie has made a habit out of innovating and staying way ahead of the curve. Rather than shift as things are happening (the way Madonna does), Bowie has always anticipated where culture is moving and has gotten there first. He doesn't always knock it out of the park (neither his electronica album Earthling nor his dalliance with Tin Machine should really be considered career victories), but more often than not he gets it right. He has even been on top of innovations that have nothing to do with music, as Bowie was one of the first major artists to embrace the Internet (he even had his own AOL-esque web portal for a while) and on this day in 1997 he kicked off one of the boldest business moves of his career when he sold "Bowie Bonds," which were investment securities people could by that »
