    The 50 Best Songs of 2010, Part 1

    I figured since the Grammy Awards announced their ever-lame nominations last weekend, it was a signal I could begin one of my very favourite annual blog entries... a countdown of the best songs of the year. I've been geekily doing this for at least 13 years, as a I-clearly-take-this-way-too-serious...

    The 10 Greatest Hits Of The Randy & Evi Quaid Vanity Fair Profile

    If you haven't been following the crazy (and kind of amazing) trainwreck story of the life of actor Randy Quaid and his wife Evi, you pretty much have to ask yourself why. The Quaids have been on the wrong end of the headlines since September 2009 when they were arrested in Texas for allegedly defrauding an innkeeper, burglary, and conspiracy in California. Their troubles actually started to begin further back in 2007 when Quaid's erratic behavior got him fired from "Lone Star Love," a Western-themed stage play adaptation of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor, in which Quaid played the lead role of Falstaff (he was banned for life by th...

    Going Crazy For The Holidays

    If you’re unsure what to give that film-buff friend or relative this year for Christmas, or the last night of Chanukah, might I be so bold as to suggest a gift subscription to Leonard Maltin’s Movie Crazy? We’ll send the lucky recipient our current issue, with my story on the forgotten music of Casablanca and an interview with MGM director George Sidney, along with a personalized gift card. That will be the first of four issues, which are published on an admittedly irregular schedule. If you want to augment the gift you can also purchase back issues which are chockfull of unusual interviews, articles, rare photos and movie memorabilia. For mo...
