The Top Uses of Journey Songs in Movies or TV

Any band that can boast that it had Santana and Steve Perry among its ranks no matter how many people came and went is one of the greatest bands of all time. Journey is obviously a favorite of many directors and actors since it appears so often in movies and even in TV, but the real trick of it is that they’re also a band that has transitioned very well across the generations to be universally loved by so many that their Hall of Fame induction was just a matter of when, not if.

Exclusive Interview: Actress Ashlee Macropoulos on This Just In and Glass Jaw

In an exclusive interview, Flickering Myth sat down with Los Angeles-based actress Ashlee Marcopoulos to talk about acting and her hit Emmy-nominated TV show This Just In.

FM: Have you always wanted to be an actress? How did acting come about for you?

Acting has always been something that’s inside of me. Like many artists, I have always had a need to express something that could only be done through honing my craft. Which is ultimately shinning a light on the deepest parts of myself and seeing what’s really there.

FM: What and who inspired you to become an actress?

My mom really is the reason I have been able to keep up with acting. If it wasn’t for her taking me to classes as a little girl and driving me all over the place to follow my heart, I would have never realized how important acting was to me.

First Run… Then Hide In New Alien Covenant Poster

20th Century Fox has released another great poster for Alien: Covenant in advance of a brand new trailer debuting tomorrow, March 1st.

This latest one-sheet is very reminiscent of the one released for director Ridley Scott’s original 1979 masterpiece.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise.

We fans can’t wait for the upcoming film! So many questions left unanswered from the 2012 film Prometheus. Who were the Engineers, where did Noomi Rapace (Elizabeth Shaw) and Michael Fassbender (David) rocket off to, why were the Xenomorphs originally created?

If you’re in need of more Alien goodness before May, check our Steve Perry’s trilogy of novels that deal with events on Earth and in other locations in space set a number of years after the movies Aliens and Alien 3. Earth Hive is the first novel in the Aliens book trilogy,

I Was There: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Election Night Party — Without the Guest of Honor
They arrived wearing their red, white, and Hillary Clinton finest: sweaters with their candidate’s name woven into the nap, custom painted “Nasty Woman” leather jackets, yards of sequins that reflected the excitement felt all around. The supporters who came to New York City’s Javits Convention Center were ready for a party on Election Night.

Unfortunately, the party never happened.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens': The Original Title, Hayden Christensen's Cameo, And C-3Po's Red Arm

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Almost Had This Familiar Title

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Almost Had This Familiar Title
The Star Wars: The Force Awakens title was announced to generally accepting adulation from fans, though there were a few detractors. Now, it has become a fixture in the franchise lexicon, and it's hard to image the 7th chapter in this longstanding sci-fi series being called anything else. But there was a time when it shared it's title with a book that is no longer considered canon. It would have been a title familiar to longtime fans, especially those who still believe in the acts portrayed in what has since become known as the Star Wars Legends series. Creative Executive for the Lucasfilm Story Group Pablo Hidalgo had this exchange with Jedi News editor Justin Lasalata.

"For the longest time, the Tfa title was the same as an old novel. Thankfully it changed. :) With so many books, it's inevitable. It was Shadow (singular) of the Empire for a while.

Star Wars Lords of the Sith by Paul S. Kemp | Review

I was a fan of the Star Wars expanded universe. I got as excited for getting new Star Wars galleys as I did getting a new China Mieville, George R.R. Martin, or Steven Erikson Arc, and Timothy Zahn’s core 5 books in the EU, the Thrawn Trilogy and following duology, are among my favorite chapters of Star Wars history Period from any medium. Even the most enthusiastic fan of Star Wars and the work Del Rey has done with the license, however, will admit there have been lows to go along with highs, many of them seem universally agreed upon, and many others are personal gems or dislikes that make the conversation that much more interesting.
