Steve Soboslai is a guy your mother would love. I know this because the day I first heard of him, my mother turned to me and said, "Why can't you bring a nice boy like that home?"

But as awesome as that was, it's only half of his story. He's also a successful musician, one-fourth of the band Punchli...

Speaking of familiar faces, Linkin Park returns to the Transformers soundtrack, anchoring the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack with “Iridescent,” off their 2...

Paging John Stamos! I need a morally questionable dentist to administer a healthy dose of pop star-conjuring narcotics to my system so that I can watch the cast of “Glee” re-enact Britney Spears’ music videos and find the experience truly euphoric. Otherwise, I’ll have to admit that I just didn’t love an episode that I have been looking forward to since last April, when the Madonna episode of “Glee” rocked my world and Spears’ manager pitched a similar, Britney-themed tribute via Twitter.
