Women & Literature: Zora Neale Hurston

‘Zora Neale Hurston’ by Bev Sykes. The oral tradition of southern black folklore was an art and a skill handed down from Africa, preserved through slavery, and still thriving in the early years of the twentieth century, when Zora Neale Hurston came of age. The tradition was preserved through generations of rural southern culture and began to decline when the black workers left the agricultural South for the cities of the North. Zora Neale Hurston was singularly placed to record this material a...

A Simple Christmas: Gifts From the Heart

Sisters, I’m going to admit something ugly here. This is a safe space, right? Lean in close so I don’t have to speak these words above a whisper: I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas. There, I said it. (Please don’t judge.) Since we’re being honest, can you relate to this feeling? It makes me feel like a bad person to harbor any ambivalence about a holiday celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ — the most important event in all of human history — so I’ve analyzed the source of those fee...

‘Songbird’ Early Buzz: The First COVID-19 Movie Apparently Wasn’t Worth Shooting During a Pandemic

Before it was even slated for release, the Michael Bay-produced, COVID-19-inspired pandemic thriller Songbird was already stirring up controversy. Apparently during the production, which unfolded in the midst of the pandemic, the crew was ignoring important safety protocols to help control the spread of coronavirus. Was it worth the trouble? Well, if the first wave of reviews is to be believed, the answer is a mostly resounding “no.” If this is the first you’re hearing of Songbird, directed b...

Skopp is the author of a forthcoming book focused on protecting fans from errant foul balls in professional parks.

Trump snapped at a reporter quizzing him about his election defeat and said: 'Don't ever talk to the president that way'

Getty President Trump snapped at a White House reporter on Thursday, calling him a 'lightweight' after he was asked if he would concede to President-elect Joe Biden. 'Don't talk to me that way. You're just a lightweight. Don't talk to — I'm the president of the United States. Don't ever talk to the president that way,' Trump told the reporter Jeff Mason.

Mads Mikkelsen is Keeping Those ‘Hannibal’ Season 4 Hopes Alive

Another day, another story about the Hannibal season that never was. Hannibal was a beautiful tropical fish of a show, but it was also so strange and otherworldly that it’s a miracle it lasted more than one season. But it did. In fact, it lasted three seasons, and while I think the final episode of season 3 serves as a pretty damn good series finale, there has always been hope that someone would swoop in and rescue the show for season 4. The folks involved with the series have held onto this h...
