Michael's Musings

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of...
Michael Shinafelt
This week one thing really comes to mind: Stay Queer As F#ck! Queer meaning be bold, be individual and most of all be present. This is to all my friends, who break the mold and follow their own paths and to those who I don't know, yet do the same. 

Moving forward...

Free your mind and your ass will follow

You know the world is f#cked when you see a headline giving credibility to Ivanka Trump's thoughts on politics

Own it when you get your tit in a ringer

I'm just a pool boy, from a pool family

My hybrids are better than your hybrids


Two movies I am actually can't wait to see (trust me this is rare) IT & Mother!

And then there's the latest Taylor Swift single...

Headline I Love! Texas Pizza Hut Employees Deliver Free Pizzas by Kayak to Harvey Victims Trapped in Their Homes

Yoga is a helpful thing

Are you a therapist now, wiener man?

I hope American Horror Story: Cult is better than that Roanoke garbage

Long before Gibson tackled the subject of World War II in Hacksaw Ridge, Attack Force Z tells the classic story of an elite military team of commandos lead by Captain P.G.

As a collector of physical media, myself,  I'm happy to announce that Attack Force Z represents the first of many classic films on Blu-ray that MVD will be releasing in the near future."

A Sweaty Mess???

A Sweaty Mess, Not!
Carrie Underwood
While surfing the WWW I came upon a compilation of make-up free selfies that female celebrities had posted on their Instagram pages. 

They all looked good, some even great without it (seriously would anyone post one without their face on if they didn't?) I have a winner. For me the hands down best one for overall content & context is Carrie Underwood's.

She captioned that this is what she looks like when she is a "sweaty mess."

Really?! All I have to say to the pic taken during her workout is we should all look this good when sweating.

This proves Carrie is not of this earth.

Kids In The Hall


Iconic
l-r
Kevin McDonald & Dave Foley
Remember "Kids In The Hall?" - that will date you. 

Dallas VideoFest (http://videofest.org) announced today that it will honor both Kids in the Hall co-founders Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald with the coveted Ernie Kovacs Award on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Alamo Drafthouse (100 S. Central Expressway at Beltline - Richardson). Tickets can be purchased here: https://prekindle.com/event/59225-kovacs-award-richardson.
 
Both Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald will be in attendance to receive the Ernie Kovacs award and will be on hand for a panel discussion, a Q&A with fans and a rare screening of the iconic Kids in the Hall film BRAIN CANDY (1996). Foley and McDonald are being recognized for careers that span more than 30 years, including acting, producing and writing on television, film and stage and especially for their breakout roles playing a multitude of characters in The Kids in the Hall television series which ran from 1988-1995. 
 
“One of the things that impressed me deeply about Ernie Kovacs was that television was a brand new medium in the fifties and he was subverting its conventions even as those conventions were being formed,” said Dave Foley of Kids in the Hall. “Ernie was way ahead of his time.”
 
”Ernie Kovacs has been one of my idols since I was a child so to receive an award in his name from the Dallas VideoFest is a true honor,” said Kevin McDonald of Kids in the Hall. “Kovacs was doing ’70s anti-comedy in the ’50s and his sense of absurdism would have been at home in a Monty Python’s Flying Circus episode. When Dave Foley and I are in Dallas on October 14, I will pretend  he is here with us - celebrating his career - because that's what this is - a celebration of Ernie Kovacs. And he deserves a lot of them."
 
“Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald of The Kids in the Hall are being recognized by the Dallas VideoFest for their efforts as comedy pioneers in the same vein as Ernie Kovacs,” said Bart Weiss, director of Dallas VideoFest. “Looking back at the comedy of The Kids and their other work afterward, you can see that, they, like Kovacs, saw what video and television could be and took us to that new place.”
 
The Ernie Kovacs Award recognizes the career and talents of some of television’s greatest visionaries. Kovacs’ work in the 1950s and early 1960s summed up the spirit of innovation and the development of the language of television as art. The Dallas Video Festival and the Video Association of Dallas announced the first Ernie Kovacs Award at the 1997 festival. Comedian Joel Hodgson of Mystery Science 3000 was the first recipient and subsequent honorees have included Terry Gilliam of Monty Python; Robert Smigel, writer/performer of Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Conan O’Brien; Paul “Pee-wee Herman” Reubens; Martin Mull; Mike Judge; George Schlatter, creator of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In; Harry Shearer, Spinal Tap and The Simpsons; and Michael Nesmith. Actress Edie Adams (www.edieadams.com), Kovacs’ wife, came to Dallas to host the awards program annually until her death in 2008. Today, Edie’s son Joshua Mills runs Ediad Productions, the video and audio archive of both Ernie Kovacs and Edie Adams. 
 
 
 
Event Listing: 
Dallas VideoFest presents the Ernie Kovacs Award to Kids in the Hall co-creators Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 14 7:30 p.m., at the Alamo Drafthouse (100 S. Central Expressway at Beltline - Richardson). Tickets:

Just Because...Free The Nipple

Set Them Free
Demi Lovato
Just Because it's daring, just because she has vocal chops & just because she's Demi Lovato, feast your eyes on her wearing a uh, rather revealing sequin & lace ensemble.

Yes, peeps in the tradition of the Free The Nipple campaign, Ms. Lovato let hers out at the MTV Video Music Awards last night.

Her accessories? Not that I believe anyone cares but she wore lots of diamonds, hoop earrings and most importantly a sultry stare.

Demi has always been fearless in life and her choices, on the red carpet is no exception for this young woman.

Here's looking at you Lovato.

Sunday Schwing! Clive Owen

The Clive Experience
Clive Owen

For some reason, OK, I know the reason which will become blatantly obvious, or has it already? I was thinking about stud muffin, manly man, oh and actor Clive Owen recently.

Remember when he was a hot ticket in Hollywood appearing in everything from one of my favorites Closer with Natalie Portman to a interesting yet not quite successful blip on his radar Derailed with Jennifer Anniston?

He was even rumored to be the next James Bond when Daniel Craig snagged the role.

Well I bet you can guess what I did next? Yep, I went to Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things to see if I could gaze upon Clive in all his naked glory.

Jackpot! Booty and full frontal were there to be found!

My Sunday Schwing is in full force.

Just Because...Unicorns

Team Unicorn
Selena Gomez
Just Because she is so adorable, just because she has a Unicorn sweater on & just because well why the hell not. Here is a fun image of one Ms. Selena Gomez sporting a sweater with the mascot for pure imagination on it, a Unicorn.

For some reason I enjoy seeing Unicorns in the many forms they manifest themselves into our collective consciousness. Selena Gomez wearing a Unicorn sweater out and about in Los Angeles is no exception. 

Personally I wished the mythic animal were real, could you imagine how much more fun life would be? Seriously, they would add some much needed light to a world that really needs more levity.

So be the Unicorn you want to see in the world today!

Ciao!

T.G.I.T. = Thank God It's Tanya


Groundbreaking country music icon Tanya Tucker opened up for the first time on NBC’s TODAY Show about her musical tribute to Glen Campbell and performed “Forever Loving You” this morning (click here to watch). Tucker also graces the cover of Closer Weekly on newsstands now and will appear on Inside Edition, Fox News Edge, The Insider, Lifeminute, Celebrity Page, Sirius XM and MORE during her NYC media blitz.

While their relationship and breakup made headlines years ago, Tucker channeled her heartfelt feelings for Campbell in “Forever Loving You” and is donating proceeds to Alzheimer's research.

Tucker co-wrote “Forever Loving You” with Michael Lynn Rogers and Rusty Crowe, a Tennessee State Senator who co-sponsored the Campbell/Falk Act. The Tennessee law protects communication rights for people who've become wards of the state and those who have conservators over their financial and living situations.

Michael's Musings

Reach The Beach
Michael Shinafelt
Hello Peeps! Wow this past week has been really great! How great was it Michael?! Well let me spill, there was a partial eclipse of the sun in Los Angeles, I saw my friend E.G. Daily perform raw (acoustic) at the Hotel Cafe, I went to the IT Experience in Hollywood and Donald Trump is still a F#ck Weasel....

It's time to extrapolate, now!

Best name ever for a club: Hissy Fist (if this confuses you, ask) 

We only had a partial, eclipse that is, in Los Angeles. Damn not a total one! I was walking down Hollywood Blvd. at the time you would think peeps were the Walking Dead when it happened.

Warrior Juan, discuss

I got stage fright during my Mandolin auditions. Truth or Consequences???

When all else fails tell people: A Bear Kidnapped Me 

Poor Little Kook

I know I posted about this, but ooooops! I'm gonna do it again. The IT Experience in Hollywood is a hoot and a holler and one eighth, yee haw!

The IT Experience - Hollywood


As most of you know at this point, the movie IT opens September 8th. Well one of the best promotional stunts I have seen ever is the IT Experience in Hollywood. Located at the historic corner of Hollywood & Vine.

You get to go into Pennywise's house and explore all the dark depths of it. While one woman in our group of seven was completely freaked out. Me & Robert simply laughed like we were kids and enjoyed the ride.

It's a fun segue into a new realm of horror. The film I assure you is way more creepy/scary. Trust. I know a sound editor who saw clips of  it in an editing bay and told me what he saw still freaks him out to this very moment.

PS: If you choose to enter the house of Pennywise Robert says to wear sunscreen.

Enjoy the images from Robert's and My experience, if you dare....

Just Because...Christie & Reese

OMG!
Christie Brinkley & Reese Witherspoon
Just Because it's Tuesday, just because this was an amazing photo-op & just because they both look terrific together I present an image of supermodel Christie Brinkley with Reese Witherspoon at a HOME AGAIN event in East Hampton.

Christie re-defines what it is to be a woman in her 60's, she is 63. While Reese is in a category all her own.

Independent, strong, not to mention they are both lookers - these two have it going on!

To me this is hands down the best photo of two celebrities I have seen together all week. Yeah, I know it's only Tuesday, but I highly doubt (actually I am 100% sure) nothing will top this image in terms of voltage.

Now click your heels together and carry on.

Total Eclipse

Bonnie Tyler
It's Solar Eclipse day...woo hoo! I guess. I for one am going about my day like any other, I have been there and done that. However if you are on Royal Caribbean's "Total Eclipse Cruise well then that's another jam entirely....(source ABC News)

Bonnie Tyler will sing her iconic hit, "Total Eclipse of the Heart," during the actual total solar eclipse taking place today.

Tyler will perform the 1983 song alongside Joe Jonas' band DNCE as part Royal Caribbean's special "Total Eclipse Cruise."
"I'm on this amazing ship called the Oasis of the Seas and we're going to pass right through the totality area a little later on," Tyler said live from the cruise ship on "GMA." "We'll all be wearing our funny glasses of course and we'll see the total eclipse."

For The Love Of Anais

Troian Bellisario
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Ana├»s Nin. 

Today, let's get literary. Although there are many quotes I love by writer Anais Nin the one above is a particular favorite.


Troian Bellisario formerly of one of my must see TV shows Pretty Little Liars inspired me to out myself as a Nin fan by posting this picture perfect image with said quote on her Instagram page. An action I just repeated except I posted the two together on Entertain Me, right here, right now.

Spencer Hastings, was always a fascinating character to me, because despite her flaws she had a fierce intelligence. This was due in no small part to Troian


Troian is a gifted actress with an intelligent mind, who happens to like one of my favorite wordsmiths of all time. This intelligence came across in her performance as Spencer and how she lives her life.


I'm so glad there are individuals like her in this world. She is a one of a kind unique person and I can't wait to see where she will go next.


"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" - Ralph Waldo Emerson 


Indeed.

Saturday Sinema: Between Night and Dawn

  
Remembering George A. Romero...

There's Always VanillaSeason of the Witch, and The Crazies, made between
Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, showcase the extraordinary versatility
and dynamism of this irreplaceable American auteur... Three films from the late,
legendary horror director, George A. Romero, showing that although he might
have defined zombie cinema, it didn't define him. 

Synopsis:

THERE'S ALWAYS VANILLA (1971)
Young drifter Chris and beautiful model Lynn embark upon a tumultuous relationship which seems doomed from the outset.
SEASON OF THE WITCH (1972)
Joan Mitchell is a bored housewife whose dissatisfaction with her humdrum life leads to an unhealthy interest in the occult.
 
THE CRAZIES (1973)
A small rural town finds itself in the grip of an infection which sends its hosts into a violent, homicidal frenzy.
 
We like it because:

When George A. Romero passed away in July, the film world didn't just lose its beloved 'King of Zombies', but also a groundbreaking and fearless innovator who inspired not only generations of genre directors, but also experimental and guerilla filmmakers for whom he laid down the template.
 
The three films collected in this box set - two early Seventies 'lost films' and a classic plague panic thriller - show there's more to the legendary director than simply gut-munching ghouls. The comedy romance There's Always Vanilla, psychological thriller Season of the Witch, and infection horror The Crazies - all filmed in and around Pittsburgh - serve to display the broader thematic concerns and auteurist leanings of a skilled craftsman too often pigeonholed within the genre; that said, The Crazies is one of his strongest horror offerings, with memorable performances from Lynn Lowry and Richard Liberty.
Romero managed to inject his films with subtle social allegories, nuanced examinations of the human condition, and just the right amount of black humor, so that they were immediately recognized as his and his alone. The box set showcases the director feeling his way towards the mainstream and showing a formidable assurance in three very distinct genres.
 
This fantastic box set includes brand new restorations of the three films, a lavish 60-page booklet featuring new writing on this fascinating chapter of Romero's career, a wealth of extras including interviews, featurettes and behind the scenes documentaries, reversible sleeves for all three films featuring original and newly-commissioned artwork, and a beautifully designed and striking slipcase featuring an iconic image of the man himself.

Child's Play, Dolly Parton



Hey Dolly, What About The Children?!
At a press conference before media reps and their children as special guests, world renowned entertainer Dolly Parton announced the release of I Believe In You, her first album written and recorded for kids and those young at heart. A digital release of the new album on Dolly Records/RCA Nashville will be available September 29, whereas the physical album will street worldwide on October 13. All 14 tracks on I Believe In You were written and performed by Dolly Parton.

“My first album was released 50 years ago and it's been an amazing 50 years since then. I am very excited that now I'm coming out with my first children's album in all of those 50 years. I'm proudest of all that all of the proceeds from this CD will go to the Imagination Library,” Dolly said. “It's been 20 years since the Imagination Library was launched. We've seen 100 million books get into the hands of children and hopefully there will be many more.”

Since its beginning in 1996 in Dolly’s hometown of Sevierville, Tennessee, the Imagination Library has expanded into four countries serving more than one-million children by providing a brand new, age-appropriate book each month. In North America, every child’s first book is the classic Little Engine that Could.

With children seated around her in front of the fireside living room set that was built for the Smoky Mountains Rise Telethon last December, Dolly Parton revealed her I Believe In You album cover (above) and track listing (below).

I Believe In You Track Listing

  1. I Believe in You
  2. Coat of Many Colors (new recording)
  3. Together Forever
  4. I Am a Rainbow
  5. I’m Here
  6. A Friend Like You
  7. Imagination
  8. You Can Do It
  9. Responsibility
  10. You Gotta Be
  11. Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny
  12. Chemo Hero
  13. Brave Little Soldier
  14. Bonus track spoken audio: Coat of Many Colors (book read by Dolly Parton)
Tracks 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 were produced by Tom McBryde and executive produced by Paul T. Couch. Tracks 2, 11, 12, and 13 were produced by Tom Rutledge and Richard Dennison and executive produced by Dolly Parton.

Before and after reading her “Coat Of Many Colors” book, she treated the kids and media to a performance of three songs featured on the new album, “I Believe in You,” “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny” and “Brave Little Soldier.” The press conference ended with Dolly answering questions and taking family photos with all the guests.

ABOUT DOLLY PARTON’S IMAGINATION LIBRARY:
Founded in 1995, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting organization that has, to date, mailed more than 100 million books to children in Australia, Belize, Canada, United Kingdom and the United States. Each month, the program currently mails more than one million specially selected, high-quality, age-appropriate books to registered children from birth until they start Kindergarten in participating communities. Dolly envisioned creating a lifelong love of reading in children, preparing them for school and inspiring them to dream. Recent studies suggest participation in the Imagination Library is positively and significantly associated with higher measures of early language and math development. Penguin Random House is the exclusive publisher for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
