Stream: Prettypleas, ‘Better Luck Next Year’

Here’s one final song for the holiday season — a beautiful and poignant one at that — and perfect for New Year’s Day. It’s from a duo going by the moniker Prettypleas, a collaboration between two longtime L.A. musicians who have worked together before but now have given the project a rather ingenious name. “Better Luck Next Year,” released right before Christmas, is the brainchild of Jacqueline Santillán Beighley, one-half of the husband-wife duo Wait. Think. Fast, and Jake Gideon, who fronts lo...

Daddy’s Hangout 2020 Wild Card Predictions

After another great regular season, it’s playoffs time. The final weekend of football decided playoff spots and positioning. Week 17 was almost perfect with my record being 9-1. The only game that many people didn’t see coming was the Dolphins beating the Patriots in a huge upset. With that loss, New England dropped to the third spot while Kansas City moved to second and secured a 1st round bye. My overall mark going into the playoffs is 83-44, which is great seeing how terrible things had got...

BTS Successfully Counted Down to 2020 at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve

Back in 2018, K-pop group BTS performed a pre-recorded segment for Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve celebration to ring in the new year.

Was Lippenstifte angeht, liegen seit einer Weile ganz klar Produkte mit einem matten Finish im Trend. Warum? Weil die meisten lange halten und einen Instagram tauglichen Samteffekt haben.

'Pushover' (1954)

Last Friday, I featured Strangers When We Meet, directed by Richard Quine. Today, a movie that Quine made six years earlier—Pushover (1954). The film noir is notable for several reasons. It was Kim Novak's first feature film, and she runs away with it as the cool femme fatale. Fred MacMurray stars, appearing in Pushover one month after The Caine Mutiny and two months before he was in Woman's World. E.G. Marshall plays Lieutenant Carl Eckstrom. And Phil Carey plays detective Rick McAllister, the...

The Tens Place Changeth

On December 31, 2009 I was living in the Central Time Zone, which means that this post from Way Out West comes as I enjoy a two hour bonus to my twenty-teens. Ten years ago tonight I suspect I was in bed before midnight, which will likely be the case here as well. I will sleep about as well as I ever do knowing that, if the sun indeed fails to rise tomorrow, it will not be because of a mere mathematical coincidence, and also that this coincidence will have driven countless revelers to deserve th...
