Somewhere between Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes and Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs exists Mickey Keating’s Carnage Park – a primal, maniacal throwback to 1970s post-political backlash. Memories of George Mihalka’s My Bloody Valentine help shape a myriad of influences that drive the director here, as he blends a West Coast criminal escapade with passionate kisses of slasher violence.
Think From Dusk Till Dawn, if you will (yes, another influence), except instead of vampires, you’ve got a patriotic lunatic who can’t accept that the times are indeed a’changing. As echoed in the opening narrative, if you tell people the “American dream” is dead, some folks might get mad – or in this case, retreat to a hellish playground constructed with only innocent deaths in mind.

Just as David Bowie had no memory of ever recording Station to Station, Matthew Perry has revealed that his former drug abuse has left him with no memory of shooting multiple seasons of Friends. Speaking to BBC Radio 2 about his play The End of Longing (rehearsals of which kept him out of the Friends quasi-reunion), Perry proved unable to answer a question about his least favorite episode of the NBC sitcom. "I think the answer is, I don’t remember three years of it," he said. "So none of those … Somewhere between season three and six ... I was a little out of it." (If true, this would mean the actor has no memory of "Mrs. Chanandler Bong.") Perry struggled with alcohol and painkiller addiction throughout his time on the show. As he told People in 2013, "I couldn't stop. Eventually things got so bad that I couldn't hide it, and then everybody knew. »

Matthew Perry achieved comedy icon status as Chandler Bing on "Friends," but the true story of his substance abuse is anything but funny. The actor is now working in London, which is why he's not in that epic "Friends" reunion photo, and he recently talked to BBC Radio 2 about his past, present, and future work.
Matthew was asked about his least favorite "Friends" episode and he answered, "Oh my goodness. ... I think the answer is 'I don't remember three years of it.'" One of the hosts noted that he was a little out of it, and Matthew agreed, saying, "a little bit of the time, I was a little out of it, yeah." They shared stories of famous people doing their jobs while high, adding that they don't recommend that anyone try that at home. "Anyway," Matthew said, "my answer to your question is 'Somewhere between season 3 and »

Somewhere between the first day of kindergarten and the college commencement ceremony, we’ve all racked up a list of teachers we’ve found memorable — for reasons both good and bad.
The freshman comedy, which debuted Wednesday night, follows six elementary-school instructors as they navigate both their professional and personal lives — and I, for one, will now always wonder whether my second-grade teacher was hooking up with a drug dealer in her free time.

Feel like you’ve just been winded after seeing the final price of the Oculus Rift? You’ll want to take a seat then – it isn’t getting cheaper any time soon. In last night’s post-pricing announcement Reddit Ama, Oculus Rift founder and creator Palmer Luckey said there’s almost zero chance of seeing the Rift for a cheaper price until future generations are released.
[A cheaper price is]Very unlikely for the first generation of Rift. A standardized system is in the best interest in developers trying to reach the widest audience, and we cannot significantly reduce the cost without dramatically reducing quality.
Luckey elaborated on how often he expects different generations of the device to be released, likening the gap to being somewhere between a games console and a smartphone.
Somewhere between a console and a mobile phone, much closer to a mobile phone. The PC spec for Rift won’t change during the 1st generation. »
