The Band Everyone Thought Was The Beatles: Revisit the Klaatu Conspiracy of 1976

In 1976, hundreds of diehard Beatles fans became convinced that the mysterious album 3:47 EST by the band Klaatu was actually a new release from The Beatles in disguise, after a DJ in Providence, Rhode Island played one of its songs on the radio. Shortly afterward, Steve Smith discovered the album at the newspaper he worked for, Rhode Island’s The Providence Journal, listened to it, and became immediately intrigued. The album contained no photographs, no identifying information at all, a...

Hard to Earn by Gang Starr Released 25 Years Ago

The group Gang Starr is one of my favorite groups or duo, however you want to look at it. Guru and DJ Premier have put out classic tracks together and that continued with their fourth album. Hard to Earn was released 25 years ago today. On one hand you had Guru, one of the illest and smoothest dudes to ever touch a mic. With DJ Premier, he’s definitely in the upper echelon of producers and considered one of the best to ever do it. Let’s just say this, you know a DJ Premier beat when you hear i...

Explainer: Why Mueller's report might be a letdown for Trump critics

The Starr report presented explicit details about Clinton's sexual encounters with a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky and accused Clinton of specific crimes including perjury, attempted obstruction of justice, witness tampering and "a pattern of conduct that was inconsistent with his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws." Starr operated under an independent counsel law that has since lapsed. Mueller's powers differ from those of Starr, and Justice Department regulations p...

Glimmering Girls

A few weeks ago when I announced my big news about the Civil War book (hereafter to be known as Within My Memory Yet,) there were lots of comments and congratulations on my Facebook page -- and among them was one from the author Merrill Joan Gerber, a FB friend. She had evidently followed the link to my author page on the Regal House website and read that I'd graduated from University of Florida. Since we were there at more or less the same time, she wondered if we might have studied u...

The Coolest Spots To Get A Piercing In New York City

Being a New Yorker is about more than having the right zip code. There are also a few New York-specific rituals you must complete: You must attend at least one Yankees or Mets game — if not for the crowd antics, then for the overpriced beer. You must partake in a Sabrett hot dog when it's offered to you by a street vendor. And you must, absolutely must, get pierced at one of the many historic hot spots scattered all over the island (and in some outer boroughs).And while a last-minute baseball g...

Are You Affected By The BMW Comfort Class Settlement? Know The Facts

The BMW Comfort Class Settlement seeks to permit Class Representatives to obtain reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs incurred due to spontaneous or unintended locking of the Comfort Access System.  In a class action, one or more people, called Class Representatives (in this case, plaintiff Kieva Myers), sue on behalf of all people who have similar claims and have suffered similar damages.

Will the Mueller Report Be Made Public? It’s Largely Up to the New Attorney General

The Case for Why Ringo Starr Is One of Rock’s Greatest Drummers

As far as I’m concerned, debate over whether or not Ringo Starr is a good drummer is over, done with, settled. How is it possible that some of the greatest recorded music of the 20th century, with some of the most distinctive rhythms, fills, and drum breaks in pop music, could have come from a mediocre musician? The standard response has been to allege that Starr’s best parts were played by someone else. In a handful of recordings—though I won’t argue over which ones—it seems he might ha...

Angie Thomas, author of The Hate U Give: 'Books play a huge part in resistance'

The author’s young adult novel became a publishing sensation and an acclaimed film. Here, she answers questions from readers and famous fans on activism, social media and coping with rejectionIn book publishing, it seems, they still do fairytales. Really not very long ago, Angie Thomas was a secretary to a bishop at a megachurch in Jackson, Mississippi. At nights – and during quiet periods in the day, she furtively admits – she worked on a young adult novel inspired by the Black Lives Matter mov...

Ken Starr urges trust in system for probing presidents

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who spearheaded the 1990s investigation into President Bill Clinton, says he wants the public to trust the checks and balances in the system established to hold presidents accountable.

What To Expect The Public Will See From The Mueller Report

Many details about the so-called Mueller report remain speculative: when it will be delivered, what form it will take, what level of detail it will contain. But this week, attorney general nominee Bill Barr provided a better sense of just how much of the special counsel’s report the public will see in the likely event that he is confirmed by the GOP-controlled Senate. The short answer: not much. Former federal prosecutors and Justice Department officials told TPM that Barr’s Tuesday testimony...

Peter Sciretta’s Top 15 Movies of 2018

2018 has come to a close and I have finally been willing to commit to a list of this year’s best movies. Unlike the rest of the /Film staff, I decided to post a top 15 instead of a top 10, and I’ll explain why. I don’t think this was a great year for movies, but it was a very good one. Many of the films in this list are on nearly equal footing. I recently went back and rated and ranked films through the last decade and a half, and that gives me some perspective. If you were to look at my rating...

Royalty by Gang Starr for Throwback Thursday

My love for hip hop goes back a while now. We can say it began the magical year of 1988. For us Hip Hop heads, that was the original Golden Era. Throughout the years, I’ve had so many albums whether it’s cassette tapes, CDs or even Vinyl’s. Since I’ve had my Apple Music account, every now and then I run into an album that brings me back to a certain place. Recently, I was browsing a hip hop site and they were talking about the Moment of Truth album from Gang Starr. Of course, GangStarr is made...

U.S. Olympic sports’ year of reckoning revealed ‘ecosystem’ that facilitated sexual abuse

The American Olympic movement’s year of reckoning began in January on the third floor of the Veterans Memorial Courthouse in Lansing, Michigan. There one after the other, more than 150 women total, over the parts of two weeks walked to the front of Judge Rosemarie E. Aquilina’s courtroom to confront the man who had sexually abused them, former U.S. Olympic and USA Gymnastics women’s national team physician Larry Nassar. “The scariest monster of all,” former U.S. national team member Mattie Larso...

SCOTUS for law students: President George H.W. Bush’s Supreme Court legacy

Shortly before his death in 1826, President John Adams was quoted as saying, “My gift of John Marshall to the people of the United States was the proudest act of my life.” Adams was one of the earliest exponents of the view that nominations to the Supreme Court form a very important part of any president’s legacy. Consider the legacy of President George H.W. Bush. Although he served only one four-year-term in the Oval Office, Bush, who died on November 30, had a profound impact on the Supreme Co...

Queens, Thieves & Mothers: The Best Performances By Women In Movies This Year (So Far)

The first time I remember being struck by a actress’ performance was while watching Gone With The Wind when I was 8 years old. Vivien Leigh’s Scarlett O’Hara leapt off my living room TV screen, a woman who could just as easily cut your face off out of spite as she could seduce you into oblivion. She was ambitious, and cunning, and sometimes heartless. But she was also fiercely loyal, and ready sacrifice for those she loved.In the years since, I’ve come to grapple with the many mitigating factor...
