Stephen Colbert continued his farewell week from The Colbert Report last night when he sold off some beloved props from the show, including shelf decoration Michael Stipe.
Story-driven experiences created by a game developer are definitely not the first thing players may think of when discussing Minecraft, but it’s most certainly a quality that’s come to define developer Telltale Games.
And so while the idea of a Minecraft game all about narrative and characters may seem odd, it makes all the more sense when it’s in the hands of the team behind The Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands.
Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have a few things in common: musical talent, the album they just made together, and their appearance on The Tonight Show last night, to name a few. But there are other areas where the two of them are very different.
For example, when Jimmy Fallon brought up that one time Bennett took advice from a cab driver in New York, he then asked Gaga if she’d ever taken advice from a stranger. She had. Only she got her advice from an elderly stripper in Atlanta. As you do.
Life Is Strange looks like a video game attempting to be an indie film.
HILLARY: Neil: It breaks my heart (but doesn’t totally surprise me) to hear that you’ve never seen or read Gone With the Wind. I’m gonna start by asking you a simple question: What do you know (or think you know) about Margaret Mitchell’s classic story? READ FULL STORY
There are a few absolutes in late-night talk show hosting: monologues, silly sketches, guest interviews, and having to keep audiences coming back after each one.
Future host James Corden had his chance to prove his skills on at least one of those when he appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
Well, here we are, at the most wonderful time of the year: The Sing-Off is back, and you can never really know for how long, so cherish every minute, even when they all come on the same night. In its fifth season of dodging the eviction notice NBC keeps hiding in Shawn Stockman’s dressing room, The Sing-Off returned as a one-night, two-hour holiday special. And even at just two hours—half the length of a typical singing show’s weekly allotment—I stand by this being the
best happiest show on television.
Hyperbolic? Sure. But what is a cappella for, if not to be a little dramatic. And, of course, for the blazers. There were just So. Many. Blazers, each more beautiful than the next. Always leave them more, except when it comes to lapels: The Sing-Off story. READ FULL STORY
“You want answers?”
“I think I’m entitled!”
“You. Want. ANSWERS?!”
“I want the TRUTH!”
“You can’t handle the truth!”
—A Few Good Men
Since the first week of October, millions of listeners have tuned into a weekly podcast that reinvestigated the 1999 murder of a Baltimore high school student. Adnan Syed was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for strangling his ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, but the Serial podcast, narrated by Sarah Koenig, has tantalized an obsessive audience with the possibility that an innocent man has been in prison for 15 years. If you haven’t become an obsessed listener, there’s a good chance you’ve been annoyed by an obsessed listener. READ FULL STORY
The first time I heard that The Sing-Off was going to be limited to a one-night special this year, I went through some pretty serious turmoil. All five stages of grief passed through in a matter of minutes: Denial that the entirety of season 5 could potentially only include one Nick Lachey jewel tone button-down; Anger that NBC was doing this to us; Bargaining that we might somehow lure Ben Folds back in a judge’s chair with a Warby Parker gift basket of sorts; Depression that Home Free would be unceremoniously replaced as the reigning champs in just two short hours; and finally, Acceptance that while we would only be getting six a cappella groups this year, it was possible they’d be the best groups yet. I mean, not better than Pentatonix, but like, probably really good.
But then, I bucked up. We’re still in for a grand ol’ time, I just know it . Because by this point, the best little singing show that could has made a holiday tradition of avoiding cancellation by any air schedule necessary, and if they can handle the frequent changes, then so can we. No, I don’t want to consider a world where Nick Lachey can’t exchange music puns with the now departed Ben Folds (so help me Patrick Stump, if you don’t know what an appoggiatura is…). No, I don’t understand how they’ll roll out multiple rounds of competition in two hours. But what is a cappella if not a stripping away of the musical fat? READ FULL STORY
