Review: Prince Is At His Eccentric Best On ‘Art Official Age’

October 1st, 2014 7:04am EDT
Prince
Calling Prince ‘orthodox’ or ‘traditional’ would be nothing short of an insult; a big-time middle finger. Throughout his lengthy, innovative career, Prince has always pushed the boundaries, fusing rock, pop, and R&B (among other genres). Additionally, Prince’s promotional strategies have been as unique as his style and albums. Once more affiliated with Warner Bros, Prince drops not just one album, but two – Art Official Age and PLECTRUMELECTRUM with 3rdeyegirl.

Despite issuing two albums, Prince’s solo album, Art Official Age, earns the most buzz. Over its course, Art Official Age is d...

While Prinsloo looks her usual gorgeous, unattainable self, Levine plays the role of a stalker who becomes obsessed with her when she shows up at the butcher's shop where he works (and sadly attempts to cut ribs with a cleaver while wearing a hair net).

Becoming smitten by her beauty, the singer is seen in his apartment with black-and-white photos of her hanging everyw...

Review: Thoughtful 'White Bird In A Blizzard' Is Araki's Masterpiece

Review: Thoughtful 'White Bird In A Blizzard' Is Araki's Masterp
I’ve always been a fan of the style and poised potential of bold indie filmmaker Gregg Araki. Whether the wild abandon vibe of "The Doom Generation" or the youthful hopelessness of "Mysterious Skin," Araki’s voice certainly stands out in all he undertakes. But now matched with an notable cast all delivering their best work, pitch perfect subject matter and a story befitting his slow and substantial sensibility, Araki’s latest titled "White Bird In A Blizzard" might just be his masterpiece. A coming of age tale meshed with a Lynch-like infused murder mystery proves to be just the material...

Howard's Pitch On 'The Big Bang Theory' - Season 8 Episode 3 Rec
Howard's pitch idea looked awesome... for a few seconds.

After an episode of watching some pretty fantastic pitches not quite make it to the end of a gymnasium and the epic pulled shoulder from throwing an imaginary baseball on a Nintendo Wii, Howard's idea to throw the first pitch at the Angels' game using the Mars Rover prototype was awesome.

It was a shame that the rover was moving at roughly 1 meter per minute. Even that, though, was probably better than if he had tried to throw the first pitch properly; 60 feet and 6 inches is an awfully long way for a guy Howard's size.

The rest...
