Madonna: A Great Fit for the Superbowl

I don’t know how to classify Madonna’s half-time show. Was it totally innovative or completely over-the-top?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, best known for his […]

Five Highlights from the Emmy’s

Jane Lynch hosted the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards After a two hour a capella rehearsal, a quick dinner of celery sticks and bread bowls, and the glories of Sunday night football (for those interested, the Pats won), I quickly flipped the channel on the large HDTV magically wired to satellite in my boyfriend’s upper campus […]
