There has been all kinds of speculation about this but Kanye West has officially cancelled his tour.  Organizer, Live Nation, made the announcement this morning.  I can’t say that I’m totally surprised but I’m actually a little worried. image: Zuma Press After he stormed the stage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when he felt Beyoncé should have won for “Single Ladies” instead of Taylor Swift, he stole the moment from the young singer and has been out of favor with fans ever since. Of course, no reason has been given for the cancellation but fans will be getting their money back, which is good but it’s also a sign that these dates aren’t being rescheduled. If you bought the tickets online or over the phone,... [Read more]

Wimbledon 2009 Mens Final on DVD

The battle between Roger Federer and Andy Roddick at the 2009 Wimbledon men’s final was epic, lasting four hours and 16 minutes.  Roddick appeared to be in top form against the Swiss great and right until the very last point, it really could have been anyone’s match but, in the end, it was Federer who won the title. image: Zuma Press Although, it was later revealed that Roddick had suffered an injury during the match, it was clearly a historic day for tennis since Federer became the great men’s champion ever by capturing his 15th Grand Slam title (edging out Pete Sampras who sat in the stands cheering him on). If you missed it, or you just want to watch it over and over again, you can pick up the Wimbledon 2009 Mens Final – Federer... [Read more]

Now Playing: “Zombieland”

Jesse Eigenberg starred in the indie-flick Adventureland, which I enjoyed immensely despite the fact that he co-starred with Kristen Stewart (sorry, I just can’t like her) and now he returns in Zombieland. When you consider the names of the main characters – Columbus (Eigenberg), Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) – it just feels like the creators are trying too hard.  Maybe they are but it’s October which means it’s hard to pass up a good zombie flick. image: Columbia Pictures The premise is similar to all of the other films in the genre – people try to survive after the world becomes overrun with the undead.  Could be good but it looks a little on the dodgy side but, as I said... [Read more]

“The Invention of Lying” Out Tomorrow

The Invention of Lying hits theaters tomorrow and I think it looks really good but, then again, I’m a sucker for anything with Ricky Gervais in it.  The title explains the plot of this film, oddly enough. In the movie, the characters live in a world where people can only tell the truth.  Most people seem really unfazed by it but Gervais’ character is upset by it.  Can you imagine if everyone you knew was brutally honest with you about everything?  Yeah, I don’t think I could take it. So what’s a man to do?  Make up lying.  He starts by telling his bank teller that he wants to withdraw $800 when he’s only got $300 in the bank.  She assumes it’s a computer error and gives him all of the money he asked for.  Unbelievable! ... [Read more]

Bruce Hornsby “Levitate” Album

Bruce Hornsby released his most recent album, Levitate, on September 15, 2009 and I have to say that I actually enjoyed it.  Long-time fans might find it a little different than a lot of his earlier work but I love the diversity which, I feel, exemplifies Hornsby’s career. Indeed, he seems to realize how different this album might seem but he provides a good explanation.  “I’ve always been about finding a place to express my interest in playing the piano within the pop song context,” Hornsby said. “But with this record, I felt like I’d done that enough, so this time I really wanted the focus to be on the songs. This record actually has a couple of songs that are under three minutes, which is kind of unprecedented... [Read more]
