15 Essential Rules For Choosing A Restaurant
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 20:01:04 -0400
From buzzfeed.com

And for getting the most out of your experience.

If you see chefs smoking outside the front door, keep walking.

Because that place doesn't value the customer, I promise you.

Via giphy.com

Toilets tell you a lot.

If the bathrooms are a state, why should the kitchen be any different? Also: No running water in the bathroom? RUN.

Via giphy.com

Don't be fooled by the cutesy decor.

The cleanliness of a restaurant is important (see toilets above), but the look of it doesn't always reflect the quality of the food. Let's call it "the Paris effect," in honor of the first restaurant everyone stumbles across in Paris, a romantic brasserie just off the Champs-Elysees with red roses on the tables and charming art on the walls and the worst slop you've ever eaten.

Via giphy.com

Be wary of a chef with a dirty uniform.

A little bit of dirt is par for the course when you're working with food all day. But an "I've just slept in a dumpster" catalog of stains on a chef's whites (aka uniform) spells all kinds of trouble.

A "Mrs. Doubtfire" Sequel Would Probably Be Terrifying
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 18:46:03 -0400
From buzzfeed.com

According to the internet. And the internet is always right.

By now, you've probably heard the bizarre and depressing news that a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel could happen. (It doesn't mean the movie is actually being made, but apparently there's a script in the works. If Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus like it, then it might be a go.)

What might this next installment of cross-dressing nannydom look like? Super scary. Because, let's face it: MRS. DOUBTFIRE IS AN INCREDIBLY DISTURBING AND CREEPY MOVIE.

These videos might make you reexamine the movie in a totally different light...

Like, all you have to do is re-cut the trailer with Inception music, and you begin to wonder whether the whole thing wasn't a dream all along:

And it's easy enough to re-cut the trailer to look like a horror movie:

65 Magical Facts About Disneyland And The Magic Kingdom That You Should Know
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:47:03 -0400
From buzzfeed.com

You don't have to be a kid to appreciate the most magical place on Earth.

Photo by Chantel Beam/ Graphic by Christina Lu for BuzzFeed

1. Walt Disney was inspired to build Disneyland after taking his daughters to ride the merry-go-round at L.A.'s Griffith Park.

2. The actual Griffith Park bench where Walt sat when he came up with the idea for Disneyland is on display near the entrance of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln.

3. On opening day Disneyland had only 18 attractions.

4. Disneyland's King Arthur Carousel is older than the park itself. It was built in 1922 for the Sunnyside Beach Park in Toronto.

5. In the 1950s, Steve Martin worked at Disneyland, first selling guidebooks (as a kid) and later at the Magic Shop.

6. Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle reaches a height of 77 feet, while Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle is 189 feet.

7. The Disney family crest is on Sleeping Beauty Castle; it's located above the drawbridge.

Via Photo Credit: adamcfink via Compfight cc

8. Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle is the only Disney park castle with a real functioning drawbridge. The drawbridge has been used twice: once on opening day and the second for the opening of the remodeled Fantasyland.

9. Contrary to popular belief, the golden spike that is located on the ground just after walking through Sleeping Beauty Castle is not the exact center of the park. Rather, it was used to center the castle to Main Street, U.S.A.

10. A time capsule was buried on July 17, 1995 -- which was the 40th anniversary of Disneyland -- in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. It will be unearthed on July 17, 2035, which is the 80th anniversary of Disneyland.

11. The Matterhorn was the first tubular steel roller coaster in the world.

12. Yes, the urban rumors are true, there is a basketball court inside the Matterhorn.

13. In the 1970s, Michelle Pfeiffer worked at Disneyland as Alice [in Wonderland] in the Main Street Electrical Parade.

14. Snow White's Scary Adventures features the voice of Adriana Castelotti, the original Snow White.

Gabriel GarcAa MA!rquez's Death Mourned By Obama, Shakira And More (TWEETS)

From huffingtonpost.com
Novelist Gabriel GarcAa MA!rquez was inspired by the mysticism of his native Colombia but, when news of the Nobel laureateas passing began to circulate on Thursday afternoon, the entire world began to mourn the death of a literary legend.

Colombian singer Shakira joined millions of her compatriots in mourning one of the countries greatest icons and posted a picture on Instagram with a final goodbye message to the author on her website:



Dear Gabo, you once said that life isn't what one lived, but the life one remembers and how he remembers it to retell it... your life, dear Gabo, will be remembered by all of us as a unique and singular gift, and as the most original story of all. It's difficult to say goodbye to you, with all that you've given us! You will always be in my heart and in those of all who loved and admired you. Shak


Dozens spoke about the life-changing experience of reading classics like One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love In The Time of Cholera while citing their favorite quotes.

Actor James Franco, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, President Barack Obama and more took to Twitter to pay their respects. Take a look at how journalists, actors, politicians and more came together to mourn the passing of aGabo.a



Michael Rapaport Blasts Spike Lee: He Made Money On Brooklyn Getting Better
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 18:51:30 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Actor and native New Yorker Michael Rapaport joined HuffPost Live on Thursday to talk about his new documentary "When The Garden Was Eden," which chronicles the glory days of the New York Knicks and their arena Madison Square Garden and opened the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

Host Josh Zepps asked Rapaport about Spike Lee's recent rant against the gentrification of Brooklyn, in which Lee said, speaking to the gentrifiers: "You canat just come in when people have a culture thatas been laid down for generations and you come in and now shit gotta change because youare here? Get the fuck outta here."

Rapaport, who appeared in Lee's 2000 film "Bamboozled," had some choice words for the director.

"I mean, Spike lives on the Upper East Side. If the people that donated money to Spike Lee's last film saw the apartment that he lives in, they'd bug out. So I don't know what he's talking about," the actor told HuffPost Live.

Rapaport, who attended Erasmus Hall High School in Flatbush, went on to say that the gentrified Brooklyn neighborhoods are better off for the changes, and that people like Spike Lee have benefitted from the improvement.

"Brooklyn got better. And he's making money off the fact that it got better," Rapaport said.

Really? McDonald's voice famously glides between Broadway and opera. Even in Porgy & Bess or her solo albums, she's never come within a mile of jazz singing. How crazily misguided can you get?

Well, not so crazy. The moment McDonald begins to sing, you wonder where the heck this sound has been hiding. If an unknown steps up and sings Janis Joplin, you can admire how well they perform the songs, but not be astonished that their voice sounds like that legendary singer. It happens. But when a multiple Tony-winning artist who has performed so many different parts suddenly sings in a voice nothing like you've ever heard before, it's pretty astonishing.

Let's be clear: she is imitating Holiday down to a "t." This isn't McDonald putting her own spin on songs in the vein of Holiday, the way Dee Dee Bridgewater recently did in her own bio-play about the great jazz singer. This is McDonald as Holiday, the same way Ben Kingsley inhabited Gandhi or Michelle Williams did the same with Marilyn Monroe or other artists have embodied Winston Churchill and countless other legendary figures on stage and film. Done on a surface level, it's just mimicry, a pale copy of the original. Done on a cellular level the way McDonald does here, it brings this artist to life again. She elevates what is inevitably a pedestrian excuse to share some anecdotes and -- far more importantly -- sing some songs. The show itself is nothing special, but McDonald's performance makes it eminently worthwhile.



Bridgewater did much the same recently off Broadway. That show used a rehearsal and an evening's performance as an excuse for Holiday to shoehorn the story of her life while chatting with the boys in the band and sneaking some drinks. It was a hoary device and the machinery never stopped creaking. In contrast, this bio-musical depicts a straightforward night club appearance by Holiday months before she would die in July of 1959. Stories are told but there's no desperate attempt to chart Holiday's entire life and the result for much of the show is a far more natural affair, where character is revealed casually and tellingly.

Holiday comes out in a lovely white gown, launches into "I Wonder Where Our Love Has Gone" and we're off. The way she manipulates her jaw (does it hurt?), slurs the words a la Holiday, tells jokes and slowly, all too predictably disintegrates is made fascinating by McDonald. Her voice, by the way, is not the broken down beauty of Holiday at the end of her life. It's more like Holiday at the peak of her powers, when she was recording for Decca. The dark shading is there, but any loss of range is more than compensated for by Holiday's masterful phrasing. The truth is that at least on recordings, her voice was a ravaged shell of its former self by 1959. It was like a grand old estate with the roof caved in, the windows busted, and nature slowly reclaiming the structure for itself. That voice still had a faded majesty, but it was as much for the hints of what it used to be as anything else. (Not to say Lady In Satin isn't marvelous....)

McDonald isn't so perverse as to croak like that. She performs "What A Little Moonlight Can Do," "Crazy He Calls Me," "God Bless The Child" and more with passion and conviction and a swinging self-assurance that is both perfectly in character (she's singing as Holiday, not McDonald) and satisfying on its own. Nothing in the show will surprise you for a moment other than her singing style, but surely that's what you came for?

But about the show. It sets the scene so effectively that the real goal of such an evening -- to make you feel like you really have stepped in a time machine and are watching a great artist at work -- is achieved for a while. Then playwright Lanie Robertson blows it by getting heavy-handed. A moment where Holiday must pause for a second and turns her back to the crowd is all the drama we need -- Holiday's anguish and pride and humor come through every song loud and clear. But this subtle emotion is squandered when Holiday wanders off stage to do some heroin. She returns sleepy-eyed and slurring her lyrics even more than usual, nodding off in the middle of half-remembered anecdotes.

But in case we still aren't sure what's been going on, her long-sleeved glove is shoved up towards her wrist, needle marks dot her arm and blood is marking a trail of tears. This sledge-hammer approach turns the final scenes into pathos as Holiday tumbles off the stage and can barely get through any more numbers. It's a deeply unsatisfying turn, no matter how "true" the details may be.

This lack of confidence in the central conceit is reflected in the set design of James Noone. It makes great use of Circle In The Square, putting a bar and tables on the stage where audience members sit and drink while Holiday wanders among them. (You definitely want to sit there if you can.) Great. Unfortunately, they also feel obliged to add hokey touches like Victrolas that float in the air behind Holiday and ghostly photos of the important people in her life that appear on the wall behind her. Every such gesture pulls us out of the idea that we're in a nightclub watching Holiday and is utterly pointless to boot. Do we really need to see what the great Lester Young looks like?

On the plus side, Esosa has McDonald looking glorious in a lovely white gown and the lighting by Robert Wierzel and sound by Steve Canyon Kennedy is very effective, moving in close on McDonald at dramatic high points (like "Strange Fruit") with a tight spotlight and (I believe) bringing her voice slightly higher in the mix as compared to scenes where she is wandering through the audience. Simple and effective. Director Lonny Price has paced the show well. It's a pity they didn't cut the dramatics and let Holiday be Holiday. Nonetheless, for much of this brief, engaging evening, McDonald delivers her spirit and more importantly her songs with the loose, improvisational greatness that was Holiday.

It's tantalizing to imagine how this show might send McDonald off into a new jazzy looseness on other appropriate roles. Certainly, jazzy is not a word I ever associated with her before. But apparently, McDonald can do anything, as she proves again here.

THE LIBRARY ** out of ****
THE PUBLIC THEATER

Anyone following the career of Steven Soderbergh knows that he is constantly challenging himself. In film, Soderbergh has tackled all manner of genre and style, from one-man documentary style performance pieces to popcorn flicks like Ocean's Eleven. It's the one through-line in a seemingly random career that has ping-ponged from one project to another. Now he's moved into TV and theater, insisting he's bored with film. That could be theater's gain if Soderbergh continues his foray into this art form.

Unfortunately, his latest directorial effort on stage is based on a dramatically flat spin on the Columbine high school massacre. Longtime collaborator Scott Z. Burns took a real-life incident from that terrible day and spun off this story. I'm not remotely surprised Burns took inspiration from this footnote to that crime because it fascinated me too. In real life, one of the killers was stalking students in the library. A girl silently praying was shot in the head and killed instantly. A few minutes later, another girl was asked if she believed in God since she had blurted out "Oh God, help me." Quite reasonably, she said "no" and then "yes," desperately trying to tell this lunatic whatever he wanted to hear. He just walked away, saying "God is gay" but didn't kill her.

However, their back and forth was subsequently and wrongly attributed to the girl who had been praying silently and was shot in the head and killed without saying a word to the killer. She became a martyr in the eyes of many who heard this fanciful tale: songs were written about her, her story was passed around on the internet as inspiring and the bereaved mother of the girl published a memoir about her daughter as a Christian martyr titled She Said Yes.

I go into detail because this story fascinated me when it became incontrovertibly clear what really happened. In essence, no one cared it wasn't true. People kept repeating the story even though a thorough investigation detailing the attack minute by minute clearly ruled it out. The story continued to circle the internet. A young relative of mine wrote an essay about this girl and her inspiring Christian faith and when I pointed out to her parents it wasn't true, they seemed nonplussed and saw no reason to correct their daughter. What harm would it do to believe this? And you can imagine the delicately awkward situation of the survivor. Who would want to add to the pain of a grieving mother? Who would want to take away the one shred of comfort she had latched onto: the false idea that her daughter had been a martyr for her faith? And yet, it wasn't true.

Here's Soderbergh discussing The Library with Charlie Rose.



Burns was clearly intrigued by this moral dilemma as well. But after earlier drafts sticking closer to the Columbine event, he spun off a wholly fictional tale that tries to up the stakes dramatically. In this case, Caitlin (Chloe Grace Moretz) has survived a school shooting and remains oblivious for a while about what people are saying. Instead of someone else being attributed with her saying yes she believes in God, Caitlin is horrified to hear that the media is reporting that she told the killers where some people were hiding and was thus spared while all the others she "snitched" on were killed.

Unfortunately, this isn't remotely as interesting a moral dilemma. Caitlin has no reason to be quiet -- of course she's going to try and prove her innocence. And we really never doubt her, even though the police and her parents and friends and neighbors and seemingly the rest of the world never believe her for a moment. So Caitlin has no reason NOT to challenge a man of the cloth using her as an example of lack of faith. She has no reason NOT to ask the mother of the "martyred" girl to stop saying Caitlin failed this moral test. The Library becomes a banal mystery where we wait for everyone else to realize what we've instinctively understood from the beginning: Caitlin is telling the truth. It's not a moral dilemma, just a weak Law & Order episode where even minimal police work might have raised doubt about her guilt from the start.

Under the circumstances, Moretz does a very convincing job as Caitlin, waking up from the nightmare of a shooting to the nightmare of having no one believe her. It doesn't help that she's been hiding some facts about vaguely knowing the killer beforehand. While the show does a decent job of showing the media firestorm and how quickly rumor becomes fact once it's been repeated on the evening news, I don't think it was attempting to denounce this so much as simply describe it. When the mother of the martyred girl (Lili Taylor) shows a savviness about TV movie rights when talking to a publisher, it didn't feel like a condemnation of her sincerity but just a reflection of how even newbies just rescued from a natural disaster know their parts when news cameras are rolling. In fact, I thought Taylor's underwritten part was actually pretty decent and understanding, given that the entire world was telling her that Caitlin was badmouthing her dead daughter over guilt about revealing the hiding place of schoolmates.

But other than Moretz, only Tamara Tunie as a detective investigating the crime struck me as a fully rounded character I believed in. Everyone else felt sketchy and unconvincing. Soderbergh directed capably and the sets by Riccardo Hernandez and lighting by David Lander are initially striking. (The set feels more like a morgue or a futuristic hospital setting than anything else.) But the already shaky play by Burns takes a thuddingly banal turn at the end and all the other tech elements follow suit.

The play ends with the members of the cast quoting from the final report. One scene earlier, we saw a student being walked through the library by the detective (why, we wonder, wasn't this done before?) when she suddenly realizes he's confused about who was standing where and has made a terrible, terrible mistake. It's not wildly affecting, but it is dramatic. But to follow that with a banal reading of the report -- whose only purpose is to make clear Caitlin was telling the truth -- becomes a tiresome repetition of facts. The play is not about the massacre, as such, so why are we detailing who was shot where and when at the climax? Each time the killer is described as shooting someone, a strobe light blinks and blood red lighting flashes on the stage, about the most literal minded and dull way of depicting such a tragedy as one could ask for, especially when it is repeated over and over, the way actual footage of a tragedy can be repeated on TV news until even the real thing loses all impact.

A kernel of a fascinating play is here. But real events have been tragically amped up in an attempt to add "drama" in a way that unintentionally leeches the story of moral complexity. But Soderbergh shows the desire as he always has on film to tackle work of complexity and ambition. And he certainly has good taste in actors: it's to be hoped Moretz will pursue the theater as successfully as she has film.


SOUTH PACIFIC ** 1/2 out of ****
PAPERMILL PLAYHOUSE

If you haven't seen South Pacific on stage before (or in a long time), Papermill Playhouse has a decent revival to offer. If however you saw the brilliant Broadway revival that ran from 2008 to 2010, this production (and any other production you ever saw, including the still-born feature film) will pale in comparison. If you've never read Tales From The South Pacific by James Michener, it's an excellent work and easily the best thing he ever wrote. Rodgers & Hammerstein took that collection of disparate short stories and stitched them together into a show that seamlessly captures romance during wartime, military life and not so incidentally racism. As usual, they also offered up a clutch of catchy songs.

It almost seems to have begun before we arrived at the theater: the nurse Nellie (Erin Mackey) and rich island planter Emile de Becque (Mike McGowan) have fallen in love so quickly they haven't even told each other yet. But it's wartime and Emile knows life is precious so he asks her to marry him and she excitedly agrees to think about it. At the same time, Lt. Joe Cable (Doug Carpenter) has volunteered for a dangerous mission to spy on the enemy and needs Emile's help. Before risking his life, he takes a little r&r with the daughter of Bloody Mary (Loretta Ables Sayre), a local entrepreneur who knows a handsome catch when she sees one.

Both these romances are poisoned by prejudice: Cable can't imagine bringing a "native" home with him to America and Nellie is horrified to discover that Emile is a widower and that his late wife was also colored. (She seems less surprised that he asked her to marry him without mentioning the fact that he has two children, a bizarre little plot failing that should have been corrected by now.) You can wash that man right out of your hair but you can't wash prejudice out of your heart.



This production is directed by Rob Ruggiero, choreographed by Ralph Perkins and with sets by Michael Yeargan and costumes by Catherine Zuber. Perhaps my mind is playing tricks on me but it feels deeply in debt to the Lincoln Center production, down to when pieces of the set are taken off stage by extras. The only area that doesn't feel like a facsimile is the lighting design by John Lasiter -- and not in a good way. The Broadway production was gorgeously lit with so many eye-catching variations on sunsets; this lighting seems to change at the drop of a hat, more of a mood ring than a subtle scene-setter.

This can be a problem with any classic. Once you've seen a definitive production, you begin to mentally compare what you think you remember with what you're seeing. A guest of mine couldn't enjoy the new revival of Les Miserables because their fond memory of the original Broadway run was so deeply ingrained in them. I'd never seen a fresh, good production of that show, so I enjoyed the new one greatly. Even at its best, this production of South Pacific is probably just fine. But if you have no competing memories, that will surely be fine indeed, given the songs and the story.

Mackey leans a little too heavily on her accent; her Nellie seems more of a dumb hick who would be overwhelmed by Emile's world -- she's more of a pet than a partner. Worse, Mackey tries to sing in an accent rather than with her lovely natural voice. Even in the middle of songs, she'll switch awkwardly from accented lyrics to unaffected, distracting us every step of the way. She'd be wise to drop the twang while singing and playing it down while talking. McGowan is strictly in the Mario Lanza tradition of Emiles, though his accent becomes a little heavy especially when he's being impassioned. Again, less is more.

Tally Sessions is Luther, an enlisted man with a crush on Nellie. He's a lot better at unrequited love than the show's admittedly thin attempts at slapstick humor. And I think Newsies has sucked up all the chorus boys in town since the sailors here look to be about the oldest group of enlisted men in World War II. (Casting them at 21 and younger would also add to the pathos of impending battle and make Emile stand out as an older man more effectively.)

But Doug Carpenter intrigues the most. He's a square-jawed, old Hollywood handsome leading man to say the least. He's also got an excellent singing voice. One look at him and you know precisely the sort of roles he's played: Curly in Oklahoma, Tony in West Side Story, the Prince in Cinderella, Lancelot in Camelot. (What, no Marius in Les Miz?) A ripple of excitement burst through the audience as he launched confidently into "Younger Than Springtime" and he was equally effective on the scathing, angry "You've Got To Be Carefully Taught." As a singer, he's an excellent actor and performs these songs well. And to be fair, Cable is a rather one-dimensional secondary role. But I fear from this brief impression that Carpenter has coasted too long on his looks and let his profile do his acting for him. He somehow managed to be cheesy even in silhouette during scene changes. Carpenter has the charisma and the voice to be much much more than a soap-worthy pretty face. Here's hoping this was simply a role that slipped away from him or he applies himself more completely as an actor in the future.

That's a lot of caveats for a pleasant night with some great songs like "There Is Nothing Like A Dame" and "Some Enchanted Evening." But Papermill has raised its standards as a launching pad for Broadway worthy shows so we've come to expect more. And Sayre proves how great this show can be. Bloody Mary is not an avaricious woman trying to trap a wealthy white man into marriage. She sees a handsome man of good character and genuinely thinks her daughter and he would be happy. She offers him her money to make the pairing more palatable. Even when he rejects them, she recognizes her daughter's genuine love and will put the kibosh on a far more profitable marriage to a planter if only Cable will follow his heart. Six years later, Sayre's Tony nominated performance as Bloody Mary is just as fresh and convincing as ever.

Mara Wilson Won't Appear In 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:52:41 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
The announcement of a "Mrs. Doubtfire" sequel has the internet in a frenzy, wondering what it could be about, where the original film's members have been these past 20 years and what exactly life is right now. Some people are clamoring for more cake faces, while others wish the classic would remain in the past. Joining the latter group is Mara Wilson, who played Natalie Hillard in the 1993 film. Wilson shared her feelings on the sequel via Twitter.

"For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I," Wilson wrote. "I've been in some mediocre movies, but I've never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now. Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end."
















Wilson even took the time to tweet out some humor in reaction to her Facebook trending description.







Wilson wasn't the only actress to comment. In the clip above, Lisa Jakub, who played Lydia Hillard in "Mrs. Doubtfire," reacts to news about the impending sequel.


Here Are The Most Absurd Gaps Between Sequels (And Proof They're Usually Worth The Effort)
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:49:16 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
After 20 long years, lying dormant alongside Robin Williams' moderately offensive bodysuit, "Mrs. Doubtfire" is officially getting a sequel. This development, mere months from the re-upping of another '90s favorite -- "Dumb And Dumber To" -- left us to look into whether cinematic resurrection is worth it. Based on these other absurdly delayed sequels, digging into the vaults of movie history usually provides solid returns at the box office (though certainly less reliable when it comes to, you know, being any good).

"Psycho" (1960) and "Psycho II" (1983)
"Psycho II" was made three years after Alfred Hitchcock died, so he really can't be blamed for it. In terms of box office numbers, it was a success relative to the original, but the closest reviewers came to consensus is best summed up in a line from the Chicago Reader's review: "... the film clearly could have been much worse."

"Godfather II" (1974) and "Godfather III" (1990)
"Godfather III" is one of three not-technically-a-sequel items on this list, but it's such an incestuous travesty, it felt wrong not exclude. Seriously, despite the presence of Al Pacino (and regardless of its surprisingly solid Rotten Tomatoes score), this movie is the cancerous, hairy mole on the face of two of the greatest mob films in the history of time. Anyway, it took home a satanic $66,666,062 at the box office.

"Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi" (1983) and "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" (1999)
Technically a prequel, but also technically the movie that introduced the world to Jar Jar Binks. A contrived plot matched with pretty much a complete lack of character development left this one pretty passionless, but hey, it was one of those rare late '90s movies available in 3D.

'Parenthood' Star Xolo Mariduena Opens Up About Season 5's Biggest Storyline
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:25:58 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
The season finale of "Parenthood" airs on Thursday night, meaning we'll probably find out if Julia and Joel will get back together. In preparation of this emotional final episode -- and let's be honest, a secret hope that we could get some finale spoilers -- HuffPost TV chatted with Xolo Mariduena, who plays Joel and Julia's adopted son Victor.

So will Joel and Julia get back together? Mariduena couldn't tell us, but he one thing's for sure: He's team Joelia.

What do you think about Joel and Julia's separation? Do you think it's realistic?
I think it's definitely realistic for my age range. I think it resonates with different people's families. I think Victor was very shocked, because they seemed so happy always. I think it was really shocking for him to see such a loving family sort of fall apart that quickly.

Are you rooting for Joel and Julia?
I think everyone is. I would say they're pretty much the perfect couple. I think Victor as a character would really love to have them back together, just because they're the only family that's ever cared for him. I think that it's had a very big impact on his life.

I know at first Sydney blamed Victor for Joel and Julia's separation. But do you think this separation has brought Victor and Sydney closer together?
I do. It's only gonna be Sydney and Victor, and I think that they're very dependent on each other. I think it's brought them closer in a way that they can understand each other and understand each others views.

I know Victor had a pretty tough time adjusting, but do you think he finally feels like one of the Bravermans?
I think he fits in perfectly. I think the only thing that isn't so perfect is that he wasn't born into the family. But other than that I think he fits in perfectly. He gets along with all of the characters and both of his parents as they love him and think he can grow and prosper. I think the whole family -- especially Craig T. Nelson, Zeek -- all those guys have really been great.

Who do you feel closest to on the "Parenthood" set?
I would say Tyree [Brown]. Just yesterday I was hanging out with him and we were playing video games. Even though we don't have a lot of scenes together we both get along so well even though he's a few years younger than me.

Even though most of your scenes are with Savannah, do you feel like you have your own special bond with the other Braverman kids?
Jabbar and I are very close. I pretty much see Savannah every day. I see Max once in a while, he's definitely a very nice and down to earth person. Drew a|. or Miles [Heizer], he's really nice. A little shy, but I think it fits him. All of them are very nice and I get along very well with them. It's a perfect cast, especially for my first job, I feel like it'll be the best job I'll eve have.

Should we be excited for the season finale? Are there any big surprises coming up?
I can't tell you any surprises, but I think everyone will love the season finale.

Catch the season finale of "Parenthood" on Thursday, April 17 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.


Eric Hutchinson's Pure Fiction
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:22:42 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
It was one of those brutal New York City winter nights this past January when I met up with Eric Hutchinson at the Monkey Bar in midtown. He was sitting alone in a booth towards the front across from the bar dressed in a high-collar, blue zippered sweater and jeans, his hair a little longer, his face a little thinner. He looked relaxed, confident; as if he had shed the excess from his life and work. Ella Fitzgerald played softly on the jukebox. An elderly couple chatted at the far corner. Hutchinson ordered a Scotch, neat. I had my obligatory Hendricks and tonic, two limes, lots of ice. I had come to find out what was behind the songs I had lived with for two weeks on a first mix of his new album, which he would title, Pure Fiction.

"It's called Pure Fiction, because when I finished writing the songs that would end up on this album and started looking them over, I noticed that none of them were about me," Hutchinson began. "When I took myself out of the way, I wrote about something else. But then I thought anything that comes from me on some level is about me. I still wrote it, I still made it; it came from somewhere, and I think on this album I tried not to get in the way of that as much. If I wrote a lyric, maybe at some time earlier I would have thought this is too cheesy or this is too simple, but this time I said, 'I wrote it for a reason and I don't want to get in the way of what I'm writing it for.' I tried really hard this time around to not screw with stuff more than it needed to be. And I enjoyed that process."

Hutchinson's first two studio albums brimmed with the kind of hooks, choruses and clever lyrics an ascendant star needs to make on his way to the firmament, but he was now without a label for the first time in years. He recently released a set of live songs from his last tour, Almost Solo in NYC, which featured his deftly humorous storytelling as much his considerable musical talents, but decided it was time to trim the whole thing way down, get back to what put him in the discussion with the industry's hottest new talent in the first place.

"You get a lot of good things from being involved with a major label system like exposure I never would have gotten," says Hutchinson. "But the other side of it is it's almost never on my timeline. The last album took a long time, partially it was me, but partially because once it was done there was a lot of stuff out of my control. My mantra on this album was 'I want to make it, I want to put it out, and I don't want anything to be between that.' I wanted that control."

Released from music-biz trappings, the 33 year-old singer/songwriter returned to his roots; back to his apartment, back to the guitar, and reconnected with his adoration for the well-constructed song -- tearing it down and building it back up, one note at a time.

"I sat at in my home studio asking, 'Can I play this song on the guitar? Can I make this song work?' recalls Hutchinson. "Because it's not about hiding behind tricks, it's about 'Is this a song when it's broken down to its bare basics -- is it a song or not? Is it tangible?' I would be at the piano or guitar and just play it as hard as I could and just sort of sing and leave the recorder going and for twenty minutes maybe bang on the piano as hard as I could, smash the guitar, totally sing guttural. Then, leave it alone. Go back the next day and see what jumps out from that, what works."

Much of this primal, stripped down style is clearly evident in each track of Pure Fiction; a truly masterful presentation of Hutchinson's acute pop sensibilities. In fact, Pure Fiction is Hutchinson's elegy to pop music, his raison d'Aatre, a place to fit all those melodies that are so comforting in their immediate hook you'd swear you've heard them before. The album's first single, "Tell The World" is a wonderfully crafted sing-along and a striking prologue to the album's underlying theme -- holding onto our moments and shamelessly shouting it from a mountain top.

"I found myself in the worst place a writer can be, which was happy," he chuckled to himself. "I live in New York, I'm married, I've got a dog -- I've got a nice life...and when I sat down to write this time I didn't feel like emptying the chest all over again and having to dig out my problems. And I became aware midway through that there's a lot of that in there anyway, but I kind of felt it was thematically working and I didn't try and go away from it when it was clear I wanted to keep saying it. It's also a little bit about 'I'm in a great place, but doesn't everyone always hate you when you're in a great place?'"

To hear Hutchinson explain it "Tell The World" is less joyous romp than social commentary on how everything that ends up on Facebook and Instagram reflects only our best moments in life, however there is a great joy in the song, especially the vocal, which is as infectious as anything he has committed to a track. His experience with achieving a measure of stardom and accepting his good fortune without trepidation infuse Pure Fiction with a feel-good vibe, something he found while traveling the country on tour and experiencing life outside the bubble of New York, where he lives, but mostly seeing the world for leisure.

"I put up this inspiration board right in front of me at my workspace when I was playing piano or guitar and singing into the mic," effuses Hutchinson. "I was actually thinking about what I am looking at when I'm working. This method took me back to Barcelona, when I went to visit the Joan MirA3 museum and I was in heaven. The whole city is amazing. It's so beautiful. And his stuff was so beautiful I immediately thought, 'Should I be looking at something that pleases me when I'm writing; would it bring something out?'"

The "inspiration wall" can be heard in the nearest Hutchinson has come to a ballad, "Sun Goes Down"; his "Dock of the Bay" moment, mixing a haunting melody with striking lyrical imagery. "I got this postcard and just described what was on it," says Hutchinson; the postcard as metaphor for the captured moments of Pure Fiction: "On the front a desert sky orange, red and brown/ She wrote will you think of me/When the sun goes down."

"I guess the more places you go, the more you realize the same things matter to everybody," he says, smiling.

We ordered another round as the room began to fill and the background banter reverberated. Hutchinson made sure I understood the spiritual center of Pure Fiction which is infused in tracks like "Love Like You", an achingly infectious song with a tension that draws the listener to the lyric through an almost hypnotic vocal performance, mixing Beatles bop with the velvet strains of Al Green. But it is in the juxtaposition of subtle duplicitous lines like "This is a crash landing, we're living a dream", which hint at Hutchinson's playful seduction of how much happiness is the result of blind chance.

But it was anything but blind chance when Hutchinson entered the studio last summer, where he constructed the songs meticulously, showcasing an array of rhythms for flavor -- South African, bosa nova, four-on-the-floor rock and slap-back funk -- giving personality to dance numbers like "I Got The Feelin' Now", "A Little More" and "I Don't Love U". Wrapping the tracks in airtight tempo allowed his dexterous vocal lifts and twists to breathe inside percussion. "I tried really hard to not get in the way of these songs," says Hutchinson. "I usually agonize over a certain chord progression or lyric, but this time I just let it happen. I stopped wondering what it was or where any of it came from."

To complete the cycle back to basics, Hutchinson worked on Pure Fiction in L.A. at the late Elliott Smith's humble studio on Van Nuys Boulevard where he recorded his debut, Sounds Like This in 2008. Under the tutelage of two producers, Jerrod Bettis, (Adele, Better Than Ezra, Backstreet Boys) who played much of the accompanying instruments, and Aben Eubanks (Kelly Clarkson) he opened his mind to new recording techniques , but remained dedicated to my description of him when we first met in 2006; songsmith.

"It's that attention to detail all the way across, where every single thing matters, which could also be the unraveling as you get close to the end of the album," Hutchinson says, laughing. "In the old days you get the whole band together and figure out later what the hell that sounded like -- did the bass player play the right thing or not -- but to me that's the whole thing; we get the drums down, and then I get the acoustic guitar, and I make sure the acoustic guitar works and then Jarred picks up the bass and I say, 'Well, that's great, but that part could have gone there.' It's the only way I know how to make music."

New found professional freedom, a comfort in knowing his place in the music biz and a masterfully crafted pop album has Eric Hutchinson right where he wants to be. "I've been doing this for how many years, but whenever anyone asks me, 'What kind of music do you play?' it's like the first time it's ever been asked. I never have an answer, you know? And on the last album I was chasing this thing that I'm a soul artist and the show reflected that on some level, but I think after making this album, I can answer people; I make pop music. This is pop music, and I think this show will reflect that a little more. The last show was little more like a soul review and I think this will be a little more pop, whatever that is? I guess we'll figure that out. Yeah, these songs are pop. I'm a pop artist."

Perhaps the strongest musical statement on Pure Fiction is "Forever", a collaboration with The 88's Keith Slettedahl, a first. It is a master's course in dynamic ranges; from the massaged acoustic open to the lilting lead vocal as prologue to chest-caving bass drum kicks, all of it bedding the wash of harmonies that appear as if a choir. It evokes the best of the British New Romantics period seeped in a New York club milieu. "I was trying to get out of my head space, and for me, that meant co-writing with someone else for the very first time," says Hutchinson. "For the first time I can listen and kind of say it's not mine. I can appreciate all that he contributed to it. Talk about getting out of your own way, I was completely out of it, because it was his thing, and I came to love it more than anything I could come up with."

When we parted, well over an hour of coming to grips with this crossroads album of his, and where it will lead him, he assured me that just speaking aloud its intentions brought to light all the hard work it took to realize Pure Fiction. But doubtless it will be more well-defined this time around.

"My manager (Dave Morris) is obsessed with the idea of how many artists finally figure it out by their third album; Springsteen, Billy Joel, their first albums are not the ones people talk about, they don't have the hits on them," says Hutchinson. "But to me, I think, the third album was about figuring it out. The first one was just gut level, raw, had to get it out there, the second album was over-thinking it all, and this one is me tinkering and learning from those two and changing it up a little bit."

Gabriel GarcAa MA!rquez Will Live On Forever With These Words Of Wisdom
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:13:10 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
In memory of Gabriel GarcAa MA!rquez, who passed away on Thursday, we're revisiting a post we originally published for the author's birthday in March.

As Gabriel GarcAa MA!rquez, a man who heightened our reality and pushed the boundaries of our imagination through his writing, expressed in Love in the Time of Cholera "I discovered to my joy, that it is life, not death, that has no limits."

In many ways, the Colombian novelist and Nobel laureate's life did seem limitless. 'Gabo,' as he was often called, pioneered the magical realism genre and gave literature a whole new perspective on the world and the written word -- but his works also held nuggets of wisdom about love, war and life that are immortalized in the pages of One Hundred Years of Solitude, Love in the Time of Cholera and other classics.

Here are lessons from 'Gabo' that will live on forever:



Sing for Ed Sheeran: The Most Talented Young Solo Artist
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:08:43 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Last Monday, the seventh, I listened to Ed Sheeran's long anticipated new single "Sing" when the view counter on youtube was just over 300. At this time, my fingers pressing against the keys, the first single from his follow up album to the 2011 worldwide sensation +, has been listened to almost three million times.

The title suggests that "Sing" inspired me to write this piece on one of my favorite musicians, and to a certain extent, that is true. His new album, x, will be available on the 23rd of June. I am eagerly anticipating his sophomore album. Follow ups to huge successes can sometimes fall into the pattern of what is known as the "Sophomore Slump." Riding off of such commercial and critical acclaim, Sheeran could release an album of himself singing the dictionary and it would go platinum.

"Sing" is a safe song: melodically catchy, upbeat, and extremely radio friendly thanks to the producing credit from Pharrell Williams. With that being said, "Sing" is Ed Sheeran's worst song. That is not to say that it is bad, because it still beats out the vast majority of all of the other overplayed tracks on radio stations across the nation. I'm holding the 23 year old artist to higher standards based off of his pure, raw talent.

Listen to his ten minute version of "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" or his eight minute version of "Give Me Love" from his debut album. Enjoy his covers of "Who You Are," "Skinny Love," "Wonderwall," "Hit Me Baby One More Time," (Seriously) "Thrift Shop," "I Knew You Were Trouble," "Chasing Cars," "Same Love," "Little Things," (Although he actually wrote this song for One Direction). Everything he covers, in my opinion, blows away the original. Those are just a few of his covers.

From beginning to end, his debut album continued to surprise and leave listeners in awe. He plays masterfully on a guitar that looks as if it is meant for someone half his age. He can change from powerful vocals to soft, tender whispers in a matter of moments. In "U.N.I." he shows off his skills as a singer/rapper.

He has collaborated with dozens of artists, sung his heart out for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit with "I See Fire." His voice soothes the soul, tells a story, and surprises you with every change in tempo, rhythm, and vocal inflection. At times, Ed does not seem human. If there is one artist out there that could be described as having the voice of an angel, Sheeran's jaw dropping vocals would surely make him a contender for that designation.

We should "Sing for Ed Sheeran" in hopes that the rest of his upcoming album contains much of the same magic that his debut album did. Let's hope that the fame hasn't changed his music too drastically. When listening to + it is apparent that the album was written from the heart, from a deeply personal place, not for the mainstream.

Everyone is listening to his story now, and an artist that young, with such an abundance of talent, could easily crack under the pressure and create a safe album. "Sing" is a great song, but it is too safe. I expect more from the rest of the tracks come June 23rd.

In the meantime, search far and wide across youtube, because much of his talent is displayed outside of the mainstream, away from radio waves, in the ears of his dedicated fans. Ed Sheeran is the most talented twenty-something musician we have. Sing for his talent, and hope for a follow up that contains the same magic that we first heard over three years ago.


Blood Orange Amazes All At Great American Music Hall
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 17:06:23 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
There's nothing better than a good ol' fashioned get-down at the Great American Music Hall on a Tuesday night. Blood Orange provided the ambiance and groove needed to accomplish just that. On my way to the show I thought to myself "How many people will be performing at this show? Dev by himself? Dev with a DJ and a drummer?" I was pleasantly surprised when eight people emerged onstage including both female singers who really make Cupid Deluxe one of my top three albums of 2013.

It's hard to know what to expect from Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) during a live performance because his music is so eclectic. Dev performed as Blood Orange for the first time back in 2009 while also in the band Lightspeed Champion which eventually went on an indefinite hiatus. Blood Orange's first full length album, Coastal Grooves featured one of his biggest hits "Champagne Coast." Coastal Grooves was a much different album than Blood Orange's successor, which is to be expected as a band experiments with styles. The title of the album is a pretty much a spot on description of the type of music you can expect. On his most recent album, Cupid Deluxe, you hear plenty of saxophone, some pretty funky bass and no shortage of electronic beats -- mostly of the 90's hip hop variety. While the albums are masterful, seeing Blood Orange live is a whole different animal.

The collection of talented people giving life to the unique sound of Blood Orange's music was quite a sight to see. The tracks ranged from sultry, to dance-y, to trance-y and a lot of everything in between. Almost every one of the band members are on vocals at some point in time during the show and boy can they belt. Every member of the band is essential to the show's success and to that I applaud them. Of the many shows I've been to so far this year, Blood Orange takes the gold by far.

Check out the slideshow below for some of the best moments of the night, and make sure you check out Blood Orange next time he comes through the Bay Area.

BD Wong Will Return To 'Law & Order: SVU' For An Episode This Season
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 16:48:23 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
BD Wong is back!

Dr. George Huang, the most underrated/everyone's true favorite "Law & Order: SVU" character, is returning to the series for one episode this season. According to TV Guide, "Huang will appear in the penultimate episode, Thought Criminal," to do a psych evaluation on a suspect being tried for attempted kidnapping and the rape of a child. It must be a pretty serious episode if they're bringing Huang back to New York all the way from Oklahoma City.

At the end of Season 12, Wong left "SVU," but has returned for some guest appearances since. If anything, we hope Huang will provide some support for Benson, who could really use a shoulder to cry on after the last episode. He'd be a way better therapist than her current guy anyway.

Get ready for some comforting, intelligent psychoanalysis, but don't expect to see a sweater-wrapped Huang. Wong tweeted a photo from the "SVU" set on Thursday, April 17, and it looks like his cute little sweaters are a thing of that past (so sad).




"Law & Order: SVU" returns Wednesday, April 30, at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC.

10 Beauty Tips for Prom
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:44:50 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Prom is an incredibly special night, and I know that I looked forward to my own for weeks in excitement. After all, what's not to like about dressing up, getting done up and dancing the night away with your friends? But we all know that there are so many things to think about ahead of time -- How should I do my makeup? What do I need to take with me? How else should I primp and prep?

I've been helping my younger sister Christine get ready for prom this year and I'm excited to have you all looking amazing on this special night. Let's get started with the basics. We all feel stressed getting ready for any big occasion, so take care of a few things early and prep a week ahead of time.

1. Get glowing skin

Tame your acne with eye drops to reduce redness. Eye drops contain anti-inflammatory agents that help constrict the blood vessels. Say goodbye to redness! Follow up with a nice lemon scrub to brighten your skin. It's best to do this at night, or try to avoid direct sunlight after. To top it off, use your moisturizer to hydrate the skin and neck.

2. Whiten your smile

You don't want to do any last minute things to whiten your teeth -- your teeth are delicate (and important!) -- so do this slowly over the course of the week. Crest white strips can do the trick.

3. Clean up your brows

Plucking or waxing your brows the night before or day of your event can leave your skin red from irritation. Give your skin some time to heal by doing this mid-week.

4. Hydrate your hair

Who doesn't want shiny and healthy hair? Use a leave-in conditioner to protect and hydrate your hair. You'll love whipping your locks around on the dance floor.

5. Use a good deodorant or antiperspirant product

If you're planning on dancing the night away try to find a product that's long-lasting and fresh-smelling.

6. Add a pop of color to the eyes

I know color is big this spring, but you don't want to look back at your prom picture10 years from now and be like me, asking why did I wear blue eye shadow on my eyes. Instead, a pop of color on your waterline is a great way to celebrate color without overdoing it. I love my em Waterliner (Turquoise) for this. If you're not big on going crazy with your makeup, adding a sparkling top coat on your eyes can give you a glamorous look without making you look like a different person. Try something like my em Color Facets Sparkling Shadow Top Coat (Moonlight Shimmer).

7. Change up your hair

One of my favorite prom-dos is luscious curls. You can easily achieve romantic waves with a medium-sized curling iron. If you want to add more volume to your curls take a brush and gently brush out your curls.

8. Treat yourself like a celebrity with a lip color change

What girl doesn't like having options? Not everyone can do a wardrobe change like Rihanna, a lip color change is much easier to play with. You'll feel fresh and ready for the camera in a matter of seconds.

9. Prioritize what's in your purse

Prepping your body before prom is important, but don't forget to plan what's in your purse. Chances are, you'll be using a tiny clutch or bag much smaller than your everyday purse, so it's important to prioritize what to keep and what to leave -- trust me, no one wants to carry around a bag at prom that's stuffed within an inch of its life! To help you prioritize, I've come up with five must-bring items that make the cut: blotting paper, lip gloss, bobby pins, safety pins and mints/gum.

10. Don't forget your ticket!

This may sound silly, but the last thing you want to do is get to prom and get stuck at the door. Remember to bring cash, your ID and ticket too.

And there you have it!



Girls Are Already Lining Up To Marry Prince George (And Who Can Blame Them?)

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are certainly going to have their hands full!

During the royal family's visit to Wellington, New Zealand on Wednesday, Prince George received a marriage proposal from a cute-as-can-be 11-month-old baby girl named Ruby Cate Blitz.

Blitz popped the question to the royal baby via a t-shirt that read "Marry Me George." She topped off the look with a white tutu and a miniature British flag to boot. Her best accessory, though, was her winning (and very eager-looking!) smile.

And although Prince George wasn't there to accept her proposal, Prince William did take notice. He even called Blitz "absolutely beautiful" -- high praise from the Duke of Cambridge.

Joan Rivers Slams Gwyneth Paltrow, Says Actress Was Mad About 'Fashion Police' Critique
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:37:50 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Gwyneth Paltrow was apparently none too pleased when Joan Rivers and the "Fashion Police" crew dissed her style choices on the E! show.

Rivers sat down with Andy Cohen for "Watch What Happens Live" on Wednesday, April 16. When a caller asked about the worst backlash Rivers had ever received from her celebrity style criticisms on "Fashion Police," the 80-year-old revealed it was from the GOOP founder.

"The worst criticism was, ugh, Gwyneth Paltrow," she said, sticking out her tongue. "She came in and yelled at us, but she stood up, she can't sit down, because she's got a stick up her rear-end. The 'World's Most Beautiful Woman,' voted by Hellen Keller and Stevie Wonder ... not my favorite."

This isn't the first time Rivers has said Paltrow isn't her favorite. She expressed the same sentiment after hearing about Paltrow's split from Chris Martin.

"Gwyneth is not my favorite person," she told paparazzi at LAX last month. "Maybe if she had eaten a little more, and wasn't a vegetarian or a vegan, and wasn't farting, it would've lasted."

But Paltrow has gotten in a jab as well. While speaking with Harper's Bazaar about trying Botox, the actress said she wouldn't do it again. "I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!" she quipped.

From huffingtonpost.com
Instagram lothario James Franco was not pleased that New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley didn't love Broadway's latest staging of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men," which stars the actor/academic and Chris O'Dowd.

The master of multitasking responded to the review via Instagram (of course), calling Brantley a "little bitch," and suggested he should be working at Gawker instead of the paper of record. Franco has since edited the post to remove the insult, but not before it was dutifully screengrabbed and preserved -- because you can never really delete anything from the Internet.

franco little bitch

Franco's public distain for Gawker dates back to 2010, when he refused to speak to writer Maureen O'Connor at a party for his book "Palo Alto."

"Actually, I don't think you want to talk to me, right? You guys only write mean things about me. Why do you want to talk to me? To say mean things about me? Go away," he told O'Conner, and later in the evening apparently asked another journalist, "Are you friends with the Gawker girl?"

As for Franco's anger over Brantley's review, it's rather perplexing given that it's hardly scathing. We'll chalk it up to another day in life of James Franco.


5 Fabulous Beauty Tips
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:56:36 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Beauty Tip # 1: How to get makeup to last all day

Have you ever had one of those frustrating moments at the end of a long day when you look in the mirror and suddenly realize that your makeup has virtually melted off? Well, those days are long gone! Short of stashing makeup products in your purse, here are a few beauty tips that help your makeup last from morning until night (without touch-ups).

Before putting on face makeup, start by applying a small amount of skin-perfecting makeup primer all over your face (including your eyelids). This will not only help minimize the look of pores and fine lines, it will also give your face makeup something to adhere to, which helps boost your makeup's staying power. Instead of using a traditional face powder (which can make your skin look cakey, dry, and aged), opt for a translucent setting powder. This will not only help keep your face makeup on throughout a long day, it will also add a slightly matte effect (especially to skin's oilier areas, like your T-Zone). As a finishing touch, use a makeup setting spray to significantly increase your makeup's longevity.

Beauty Tip # 2: How to get thicker, longer eyelashes

Wouldn't you love the look of thicker, longer eyelashes (without having to glue on those cumbersome false eyelash strips)? Well, you're in luck! The beauty industry recently started producing several new eye makeup products that are not only easy to use, they also don't require the precision and expertise of a makeup artist to apply.

As an alternative to using falsies, opt for a lash-thickening mascara system. These products help build-up the look of your individual eyelashes via the application of flexible cotton or nylon fibers. When the mascara is applied to your lashes, it grabs onto each nylon fiber (which act like a thickening lash primer), instantly making your eyelashes look longer and fuller.

Beauty Tip # 3: How to make your eyes look bigger

To make your eyes look bigger (and more awake), always start by curling your eyelashes. This immediately makes your eyes appear larger, and also creates the illusion that your eyelashes are longer. Starting at the base of your eyelashes, gently curl them using an eyelash curler. Lightly clamp down on your lashes mid-way, and then finally at the tips. This three-curl motion helps to create a natural curved effect to your lashes.

In addition, never completely rim your eyes with eyeliner. This technique actually has the opposite effect, as it makes your eyes look smaller. Instead, (using a waterproof eyeliner) only line your upper lash line with eyeliner and draw a line half-way in (from the outer corner) on your lower lash line. You can slightly smudge the eyeliner for a softer, less dramatic effect.

Beauty Tip # 4: How to make your lips look fuller

Without having to resort to lip injections and fillers, you can quickly create the illusion of fuller lips with these easy-to-follow beauty tips. Start with a lip-plumping product before applying any lip color. This topical solution temporarily gives your pout a fuller, more supple look. By using collagen-infused formulations, these products help keep your lips hydrated too. Lighter lip colors (like pale pink and nude) help make your lips look fuller; whereas, darker colors (like wine and deep reds) can actually make your lips look thinner. As a finishing touch, apply a small amount of lip gloss to the center of your lips. This reflective effect makes your pout look plumper and sexier.

Beauty Tip # 5: How to make your face look thinner

The art of makeup contouring and highlighting has been a well-known beauty secret that models and actresses have used for years. To act as a highlighter, apply concealer to your face in the following areas: in an upside-down triangle shape underneath your eyes, along the bridge of your nose, and above the cupid's bow of your mouth. After applying concealer and foundation, using a matte bronzer or contouring powder (about two shades darker than your foundation color), sweep this darker color across the hollows of your cheeks (it helps to suck-in your cheeks while doing this). Then sweep the bronzer below your jawline, under your chin, and along the perimeter of your forehead. As a final touch, sweep blush onto the apples of your cheeks. This highlighting and contouring technique helps accentuate your cheekbones, while making your face appear thinner and more sculpted.

So there you have it -- five fabulous beauty tips that will instantly make you look flawless and gorgeous every day, from morning until night!

Things You Need to Know Before You Get a Tattoo You'll Regret
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:40:58 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
A well-thought-out tattoo is a beautiful thing. An impulse tattoo? Not so much. We sat down with professional tattoo artist Billy Gray and found out the top 10 things you should know before getting your first tattoo. Whether it's choosing the right shop and artist or picking the right design, he'll help guide you so you know what to do and what to expect for your first tattoo experience.

What's the number one thing you need to know according to our expert? Be prepared.

Tattooing is a painful process, so make sure you're ready for it when you go to get one. Depending on the size of your piece, you might be sitting in that chair for many hours and the last thing you want is to be in the wrong state of mind. Get yourself psychologically ready for it and you'll come out on top.

Also, make sure you're healthy. Being drunk, hungover or sunburnt is never a good idea when getting inked -- it will make the whole process that much more unpleasant. You want your skin to be in tip-top shape before you start. Being physically healthy will help make it a much better experience.

Tom Cruise, Laura Prepon Rumored To Be Dating Even Though They've Apparently Never Met
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:16:34 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Tom Cruise and Laura Prepon just might be Hollywood's hottest new Scientologist couple, if they've ever met that is.

When sources told British tabloid Grazia that the pair was seen dining together at the Manor Hotel in Los Angeles in November 2013, reps for the "Mission Impossible" star and the "Orange Is The New Black" actress denied any romance between the two. Now, Page Six is reporting that Cruise and Prepon are still seeing each other and working hard to keep their relationship a secret. "Itas the buzz on the set of her show,a an insider told Page Six's Richard Johnson.

Well, Cruise's rep told The Daily Mail that not only are the two not dating, but they have actually never even met. Meanwhile, an unnamed source insisted to E! News that the "story is false," adding that they also learned the two actors have apparently never been introduced.

There is a lot of denial going on here, as reps for both actors also shut down the reports to Page Six. But what's interesting is that Johnson points out that when the first dating rumor surfaced in November, "Cruiseas hardworking publicist quickly tried to squelch the story. 'They see each other at some functions, but they are not dating. He will date again and has been talking with women,'" an insider told Us Weekly at the time.

Johnson seems to be implying that Us Weekly's insider is actually Cruise's rep, but that statement to the magazine would negate the claim the two have never met.

So which is it? Have Cruise and Prepon met and they aren't dating? Have they never even crossed paths and this is a ridiculous rumor? Or are the actors' reps working hard to keep the alleged romance undercover?

Demi Lovato Spreads Message Of Love After Twitter User Calls Her 'Fatty'
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:51:47 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Hate can't tear Demi Lovato down.

The "Made in the USA" singer took to Twitter on Tuesday, April 15, to share some advice with her 21.8 million followers minutes after a Twitter user called her "fatty." She encouraged her fans to choose kindness over cruelty and to spread a message of love.







Shortly after posting the uplifting words, Lovato retweeted one particular Lovatic who chose to combat hate with love. Instead of attacking the user who called Lovato "fatty," the singer's fan responded with a simple message: "you are beautiful."

The former Disney star, who sought treatment for personal struggles in 2010, is all about promoting self-worth. While performing as part of the iHeartRadio Live series in Burbank, Calif., on Monday, April 14, she shared a heartfelt message with the crowd.

"No matter what you go through, whether it is a mental illness, being bullied at school, or cutting, having a substance abuse issue, or an eating disorder, don't be afraid to ask for help. That's what I did," she told the audience, per Yahoo! Music. "I want you all to know that you saved your own life, and you should be very proud of yourself. You are worthy of life. You have so much ahead of you. So just work it out. This goes out to all of my warriors."


Valerie Harper Says She's Not Cancer-Free, 'Finally Got A Will' After Terminal Diagnosis
Date: Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:47:24 -0400
From huffingtonpost.com
Despite recent reports to the contrary, Valerie Harper is sadly not cancer-free.

"In response to a recent erroneous quote concerning my health, I am not 'absolutely cancer-free,'" she said in a statement on Wednesday, April 16, responding to an interview with Closer magazine, which she says misquoted her. "I wish I were. Right now what I am is cautiously optimistic about my present condition and I have hope for the future."

The 74-year-old "Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "Rhoda" star revealed in March 2013 that she had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and doctors estimated she had just three months to live. In late August, Harper said she underwent treatment and at the time, doctors told her she would live to see Christmas that year.

aItas not curable," Harper told NBC News of her cancer in September 2013. "Thereas no question. It has to be managed.a

Harper, who went on to compete on "Dancing with the Stars" after she was diagnosed with cancer, has now surpassed all medical expectation. However, during her appearance on Howard Stern's radio show on April 16, she said that her diagnosis forced her to confront the future. Harper and husband Tony Cacciotti started to plan her funeral, and she told Stern, she, "finally got a will."

Until the diagnosis, Harper said she and Cacciotti had been superstitious and thought writing a will would somehow jinx their life together.

"I said, 'Tony, we got to do this. You should do a will ... Death is inevitable, it's like gravity," she explained. "If we don't say what we want done, [the kids] are going to say, 'Did they want to be cremated?' They will have to buy plots for us. It's unfair to our kids."
