Jay-z Will Help CNN Launch ‘The Van Jones Show’

Jay-z Will Help CNN Launch ‘The Van Jones Show’
Van Jones hopes his new CNN show will be a place where both average and above-average Joes feel at home talking about what’s going on in America.

“This is an opportunity to really reflect on where we are and where we are going,” he says of “The Van Jones Show,” which will debut Saturday, January 27, at 7 p.m. on CNN, taped before a live audience. “We will have cultural icons and political leaders on the one hand, but we will also be going out into the country, talking to ordinary people.” Jones intends to use social media, live-crowd interaction and taped segments of visits with people across America to analyze the trends shaping the 2018 and 2020 elections.

But yes, the show will have some glitter, too. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter will appear on Jones’ opening effort, ready to talk about activism and some of the themes behind his recent album, “4:44.” The album “is a real social justice

With Affleck Presumably Out, DC Turns Its Eyes to Jake Gyllenhaal

It’s no secret that the Dceu is in trouble. More than that, actually, it’s on its last legs as a franchise. Five movies into their mega-franchise – a cinematic universe that was, at least conceptually, the rival of the better received Marvel Cinematic Universe – and the only hit among them is Wonder Woman. As for the rest… well, that’s been something of a mixed bag, to put it mildly. Man of Steel was one of the most divisive blockbusters in recent memory, starkly dividing DC comics fans in half depending on if they liked the new direction of the

Kristen Wiig Returns to TV in New Apple Series from Reese Witherspoon

Two amazing Hollywood actresses are working together to bring an all new series to television. Thanks to Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Wiig is now returning to TV. In fact, Wiig is going to be staring in a 30-minute comedy from Apple, which was produced by Hello Sunshine. The upcoming series is going to be based on the collection of short stories by Curtis Sittenfeld, which are called “You Think It, I’ll Say It.” These stories upend all the assumptions about important social issues, such as gender roles, relationships and class in a nation that feels viscerally divided and adrift. The show,

The Funniest Movie Title Translations In Japanese

By now we all realize that movie titles don’t necessarily translate well between different languages, but there are always those exceptions that might not need as much work or to be changed as much as you might think. Instead, other countries, Japan in this case, tend to change the titles and even the covers around to better suit their idea of what the movie is about and to please the crowds. What might seem to please people and make them want to see the movie in America could be very different in Japan so it’s not too surprising that things

The Duke Nukem Theme Song Performed by a Hardware Orchestra

To be honest the Duke Nukem theme doesn’t sound much different on the hardware orchestra than it does on the video game. I’m starting to wonder if this is how original game soundtracks were created in the first place rather than some synthesized noise that was picked up by speakers that were less than up to par. That idea would get shot down I’m certain because of the simple fact that the hardware orchestra does more than just video games. This has been used for movies and TV shows alike and has produced kind of the same sound with a

Is Sitting Too Close to the TV Really Bad for You?

I think we’ve all heard the old adage that sitting too close to the TV could be very bad for you. Back in the 1960’s it might have been a problem since the old, boxy dinosaurs that were what passed for TV’s back then were made with cathode ray tubes that generated the picture. The electrons were fired at a screen covered in layers of phosphorus and a layer of lead so as to avoid firing the harmful radiation that was emitted from the Crt directly towards anyone. Unfortunately there was a faulty batch of TV’s that had a radiation

However you feel about Thomas and Friends, the show has gained a lot of popularity over the years and has drawn a few celebrities to the role of narrator that you might not have expected.

The names of those who have done the narration though isn’t so much surprising as it is kind of impressive. Thinking that a kid’s show can

Demoralizing Documentary About Amazon’s Recruiting Of Retired Seniors As Seasonal Workers

It’s demoralizing in a sense that Amazon would hire retired seniors as seasonal workers since it means that they’re temp workers more or less. They’re asked to come in, do the work they’re asked during peak season, after which they’ll be expected to leave. The real demoralizing part is that these people that are part of the campforce, an idea started in 2008, are almost all elderly folks that are older and not as capable to work long hours and lift, bend, stretch, and work as hard as a younger person. Some of these people simply can’t do the work

There’s No Reason There Can’t Be Good Video Game Movies

When it comes to video game movies there’s no reason why there can’t be any good ones out there. This could be the source of a huge argument between fans, gamers, and those that just did or didn’t think the movies were worth much, but the fact remains that the box office numbers don’t lie. A lot of video game movies have tanked, while some have kept going and going largely because of their star power rather than because they’ve kept true to their premise. Some fans have been increasingly irked at the movies that have taken their source

‘High Maintenance’ Season 2 Review: Don’t Be Clouded By the Smoke Surrounding TV’s Most Human Show

‘High Maintenance’ Season 2 Review: Don’t Be Clouded By the Smoke Surrounding TV’s Most Human Show
[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “High Maintenance” Season 2, Episode 1, “Globo” follow.]

Near the beginning of “High Maintenance’s” fifth episode of Season 2, “Scromple,” a very unconventional preacher’s sermon includes the phrase “praise the miracle and the mess.” It’s an ethos which does a nice job of summing up the ways in which the HBO series embraces humanity’s best and worst impulses, our flaws and our screw-ups and our moments of grace, and an attitude which coming into 2018 brings with it almost a sense of healing.

Continuing to track the lives of New Yorkers struggling to get by on every level, the show never feels like it’s running away from its central premise, following a bike-riding pot dealer (known as the Guy, played by co-creator Ben Sinclair) servicing Manhattan and the greater New York area. But it has continued to evolve and grow with time, letting each episode build upon the last

Hitler Apparently Had a Secret Passion for Disney Characters

Who would have known that a person like Adolf Hitler would have had a secret passion for Disney characters? It’s like thinking that Joseph Stalin might have liked watching the old Looney Tunes cartoons. Apparently though Hitler did in fact like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves since it was based on an old German fairy tale. That makes sense I suppose considering that he loved everything German and was a staunch believer in the future and superiority of his country. What’s hard to believe however is that he would go so far as to recreate several drawings in the

Michael Wolff To Bill Maher: ‘Fire And Fury’ Has “Incendiary” Unsolved Secret

Update, with video Could there possibly be anything left unsaid or unreported about Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury? Yes, says the author, and it’s “incendiary.” On that, Wolff and his critics are likely to agree. Wolff, a guest on tonight’s Real Time with Bill Maher, told the HBO host that one revelation remains undiscovered in his much-raked-over book about Donald Trump’s first year in the Oval Office, and it’s a juicy one. And, no, he wasn’t talking about Interracial…
