Prince, John Grisham, Anna Faris, Oliver Sacks and Nikki Giovanni Reign!: New Books, Old Favs

in Potpourri by

If there was ever a list of new releases that displayed the kind of diversity and breadth that we love about books, it would be this list. We have one of the most intimate books of the personal life of Prince (you never forget your first time hearing a Prince song), as well as the diary entries of Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, following his spiral down into heroin addiction, paranoia, and efforts to draw himself back up; the Bush twins, Jenna and Barbara (#BestSisterEver) have documented their time growing up in the White House, with Secret Service agents following them to college, and Oliver Sacks’ last book that he was working on before his death. If you’re looking for a…

in Potpourri by

Last year we treated our readers (and let’s be honest, ourselves) to a little present—the killer abs of the 10 hottest men of 2014. We’ve been pretty guilty of turning up the temperature a bit lately with “Olicity” Watch, Battle ‘Ships (can we blame Rachel Carter for global warming?) and of course, Heat Index. So why stop there? To help keep the roads free of ice over the holidays, we present our second annual Abs as Flat as a Book: the hottest men of 2015. Consider it a present AND a public service.

Jurassic World delivers tyrannosaurus-sized thrills and chills

in Fiction by

Let me get this straight right here and now: I am not watching those dinosaurs jump out at me in IMAX 3-D. Not going to happen. But it will happen for millions of people when Jurassic World, the latest in the popular sci-fi action/thriller series, opens in movies theaters across America on Friday. In the film, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio and thousands of innocent people become a massive smorgasbord for all manner of man-eating dinosaurs that have been brought to life by scientists in a lab. And movie-goers around the country will squirm, flinch, cringe and scream as they watch helplessly to find out who’s going to live…and who’s going to become lunch. While I’ve enjoyed all…

in Potpourri by

Star-Lord, Captain America, and a Historic Super Bowl Payoff UPDATE: This is what heroes are made of. After the New England Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks in the most thrilling roller-coaster of a Super Bowl ever played, Washington native Chris Pratt (who played Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy) announced that he would honor his wager with Massachusetts born-and-bred Chris Evans (the big screen’s Captain America). The two had entered a Super-sized bet in which the loser would have to visit a children’s hospital in the winner’s home town dressed in full super-hero regalia (see story below). Shortly after the Patriots secured the victory, Pratt tweeted his congratulations to the Evans’ team, and promised that Star-Lord would be visiting Christopher’s Haven…
