We’ve Got A File On You: Melanie C

It’s impossible to overstate just how important the Spice Girls were to pop music in the 1990s. The UK quintet’s 1996 debut album, Spice — which recently turned 25 years old, commemorated with a deluxe reissue called SPICE25 — went multi-platinum in 27 countries and sold 19 million copies in one year, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. The Spice Girls were so monumental, their collective charisma so magnetic, it’s easy to forget that Melanie Brown (“Scary Spice”), Melanie Chis...

The NYT reveals its shortlist of 25 books, one of which will be named "the best book of the past 125 years," and "Gone With The Wind" is on the list.

Isn't that weird?I read that book when I was about 16, and I thought: This is the best book I have ever read, and I don't think I will ever read a better book, because how can any book be better than this? There's a lot in the book that's not in the movie, as I was disappointed to see when I finally got a chance to see the famous flick. I was 16 in 1965, and back then, you could only see an old movie if it showed on TV or played in a theater. "Gone with the Wind" never played on TV, not until 19...

Jackpot Ultra Running Festival Race Report - 2019

My wife Mel has seen me run 100 milers. She has seen me barf on my feet. She has seen me sleepwalking from absolute exhaustion. She has seen my legs look like they need an exorcism as they twist into knots with cramps. She has seen me give birth to blisters the size of a Toyota Prius.My wife is a smart person.So I have no idea why, after everything she has seen me go through, she would willingly choose to register for a 100 miler. And then she suggested I could run it with her. The only logical ...

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from the Reese family! I’m assuming 2018 has been exactly the same for you and your family as it has for us.

Her artistic talents have increased exponentially over the past year. She creates stunningly beautiful art and paint...

Neuer Job gefällig? So klappt’s mit dem Karrierewechsel

In den USA kam es dieses Jahr zu einer enormen Kündigungswelle. 2,9 Prozent aller Arbeitskräfte kündigte dort im August, während die Zahl der offenen Stellen im Vereinigten Königreich zur gleichen Zeit einen neuen Rekord erreichte und damit zum ersten Mal die Marke von 1 Million überschritt. Was den deutschen Arbeitsmarkt betrifft, so erholt sich dieser gerade von den Folgen der Corona-Krise. Apropos Corona: Seit der Pandemie hatten wir alle viel Zeit, um nachzudenken und wichtige bisherige Ents...

The 14 Most Iconic Alfred Hitchcock Scenes Of All Time

It's impossible to overstate the impact Alfred Hitchcock has made on film. His movies have influenced countless other directors, while the tropes he helped create have now entered the film lexicon and shaped the modern thriller. "MacGuffins" -- a word Hitchcock created to describe an item that drives the story, but isn't actually all that interesting in and of itself -- wrongly accused heroes, and meticulously constructed set-pieces that go off (and go wrong) with clockwork precision are all con...

The 20 Best Zombie Movies Of All Time

The zombie film takes up a lot of real estate in the horror genre. It ebbs and flows in terms of popularity, like anything else, but it always maintains a foothold, which speaks to how much audiences connect with the concept. Although the zombie genre has lots of tropes and general "rules," there's so much that a filmmaker can do with these brain-hungry members of the undead. After all, horror is a genre that's particularly adept at repackaging social fears and political anxieties as seemingly s...

Alfred Hitchcock's 15 Best Films Ranked

With a career that spanned over 50 years, Alfred Hitchcock is an undisputed master of cinema. With around 55 feature films on his resume, it is extremely hard to narrow them down to a list of 15 -- and that's before you even get to ranking them. Hitchcock charted the political turmoil of the 20th century as it was unfolding; with his pre-war espionage thrillers "The 39 Steps" (1935) and "Sabotage" (1936), his examinations of the effects of World War II on the human condition in "Lifeboat" (1944)...

18 Black-led Horror Movies as Terrifying as 'Candyman'

Nostalgia for the ‘90s is big right now, so it’s probably not a huge surprise Candyman is coming back. The love-lorn killer with the haunting bass voice and hook hand never had quite the box office cred of a Freddy, Jason, or Michael Myers, but Tony Todd’s performance—and his signature vocal rasp—made him an instant…Read more...

‘Snowpiercer’ Season 4 Greenlit Ahead of Season 3 Premiere

After a famously bumpy development period, TNT’s Snowpiercer will continue to chug along for a while longer: the network has handed the series a fresh renewal, continuing its tradition of giving a greenlight to an advance season before the impending season’s premiere even hits the airwaves. Actually, I guess “airwaves” aren’t technically involved since TNT is a cable network. But you know what I mean. Watch a video below of star Daveed Diggs announcing Snowpiercer season 4. “We have been g...

Hydrangea Petal Necklace

Is there anything more striking than the bursts of colorful blooms from hydrangea shrubs? Evoke that same stunning sentiment with this hydrangea-inspired necklace. Maker Melanie Brauner enlists a unique technique to bring each one to life. First, she dips shaped metal into a pulp made from water and plant fibers. As the pulp dries, it forms a translucent, papery skin that builds up with each successive dip. This papier-mâché-esque process leads to a layered, three-dimensional result, which Melan...

Comment on sweet cherry pie by Melanie

This pie is delicious but I think it would have benefited from pre-baking the bottom crust a little, especially because the cherries put off a LOT of liquid during cooking.
