This Map Shows Where All the Wildfires in California Are Burning

11 October 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This article originally appeared on time.com.

Fast-moving wildfires tore through California this week, destroying 1,500 homes, wineries and businesses in what has become one of the deadliest outbreaks in the state’s history.

A number of wildfires swept across Northern California in Napa and Sonoma counties just north of San Francisco — killing at least 17 people and forcing thousands of residents to evacuate their homes as firefighters struggled to contain the roaring flames that have scorched tens of thousands of acres.

California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties, as well as in Butte, »

Fyre Festival Email Leak: ‘No One Is Eating So Therefore No One’s Pooping’

5 June 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Just when you thought the Fyre Festival PR disaster couldn’t get any worse, it has: Just-released emails show organizers haggling over how many toilets they’ll need to provide for the outdoor festival they promoted as a luxury concert in paradise. Mic reports that nearly four weeks prior to festival meltdown, an email titled “Red Flag- Bathrooms/ Shower Shipping” circulated, calling attention to the “unexpectedly high costs…of shipping enough toilets and showers to the Bahamas to accommodate an anticipated 2,500 people on the island.” Around the same time, the festival’s caterer backed out of the deal. This series of events led one. »

Boxer David Benavidez Scores the Knockout of the Year

22 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ve seen plenty of boxing knockouts in my lifetime but when someone scores a spot on perfect punch it always surprises me.  But I think in the history of my watching boxing or even just boxing highlights I’ve never seen a boxer deliver a combination as on target and as lethal as this.  David “Red Flag” Benavidez displayed what could only be described as “video game skills” during the 8th round of his fight with Rogelio Medina. Medina went flying out of the ring, and ultimately lost the fight, when Benavidez landed a brutal 7-punch combo. When you watch this

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: One Dwayne Johnson To Rule Us All

Last Week’S Review: Melissa McCarthy Is The Only Living Boy In New York

Here we are: The “Saturday Night Live” Season 42 finale. What a long, strange trip it’s been, huh? Hard to believe it was only last fall that we watched the Chicago Cubs dance up on the female cast members, or wondered if Dave Chappelle meant it when he asked us to give President Trump a chance. A lot of songs, impressions, and parodies-so-on-the-nose-they-hurt later, and another season of “SNL” is in the bag. Last night, we bade farewell to longtime cast members Vanessa Bayer and Bobby Moynihan — evidently, Kenan Thompson will stick around until someone remembers he doesn’t have to be there — and inducted host Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson into the Five Timers’ Club. Let’s take a look at the finale!

Host: Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson is a large, magical man, all muscles and teeth and charisma. »

Christian Grey Is A Walking Red Flag In Honest Trailer For ‘Fifty Shades Darker’

9 May 2017 12:54 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The “Fifty Shades Of Grey” franchise is showing that it doesn’t have much lasting power in the cinematic bedroom. While the first film topped $571 million worldwide, the follow-up, “Fifty Shades Darker,” could only manage $378 million. That’s still a nice number, but generally speaking, you don’t want your sequel to make nearly $200 million less than its predecessor, so Universal might be advised to upgrade the kink for the final entry in the series, “Fifty Shades Freed.”

As Screen Junkies reveals in their latest Honest Trailer, ‘Darker’ only has about ten minutes of sex, in an otherwise unsatisfying movie about a young woman who is stalked by a good half-dozen people, and a man who throws up so many red flags, no reasonable person should be dating him, even less allowing him to tie them up.

‘Folk Hero & Funny Guy’ Review: Wyatt Russell and Alex Karpovsky Hit the Road in Year’s Most Charming Buddy Comedy

8 May 2017 2:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alex Karpovsky knows his way around an ill-fated working road trip. Back in 2012, the indie multi-hyphenate pulled triple duty on his “Red Flag,” starring in a feature he also wrote and directed about a filmmaker taking his latest work on around the country on a makeshift tour that only did more (mostly amusing) harm than good. In Jeff Grace’s amiable “Folk Hero & Funny Guy,” Karpovsky is mining similar territory in a comedy elevated by pairing up the actor with rising star Wyatt Russell.

As childhood friends who have taken wildly divergent paths in life — Karpovsky’s Paul is a struggling standup comedian who just ended an engagement, Russell’s Jason is a mildly successful folk singer who is having a hell of a time traveling the country and jamming out, with groupies to spare — the pair have a lived-in, believable chemistry that hinges equally on their affection for and disappointment in each other. »

‘Folk Hero & Funny Guy’ Trailer: Mismatched Pals Wyatt Russell and Alex Karpovsky Embark On Uproarious Road Trip — Watch

27 March 2017 10:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fans of “Girls” star Alex Karpovsky will likely feel comfortably familiar with some of the dynamics that play out in his latest starring role in Jeff Grace’s “Folk Hero & Funny Guy,” as the multi-hyphenate returns to the same wacky — and insightful! — road trip high jinks that marked his own  feature, “Red Flag.” In that film, Karpovsky played a filmmaker who takes his latest feature on the road and encounters all kinds of strange characters, all of whom have lots to say about his creative output.

In Grace’s film, Karpovksy is again a struggling artist — this time, an aspiring comedian — who (somewhat against his will) takes his shtick on the road, only to find some unexpected people and situations along the way. He’s the funny guy, so of course he also »
