For Grownups: Premiere Dates & Details for New Netflix Stand-Up Specials Revealed...

Netflix #StreamTeamThis afternoon, I sat-in on a discussion about the growing number of Stand-Up Specials that will be rolling out on Netflix in the coming year. Hannibal Buress, John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt threw down some thoughts on working with Netflix on their latest specials - Oswalt largely equating the readily-available library as being like "albums on a shelf" - You want to see it, and there it is. This Spring, four new titles will join that virtual shelf, with details and premiere dates for specials by Buress, Jimmy Carr, Theo Von and Oswalt ready to roll out. Check out a preview...

Comedy: Jim Florentine & Don Jamieson to unleash TERRORIZING TELEMARKETERS Volume 6

Those who know me are usually aware of my dislike for door-to-door solicitors and telemarketers. They're scummy professions in my eyes (don't call my cell, don't ring my bell - maybe I should trademark that!), so I love it when there's an opportunity to fight back... with a little humor, of course. On December 4, Metal Blade Records will unleash TERRORIZING TELEMARKETERS: VOLUME 6, the latest collection of phone-based retaliation from JIM FLORENTINE and DON JAMIESON. Available via iTunes, Amazon, and the like, physical CDs will be available exclusively at live shows. Check out "In a Pickle..."

Trailer: IFC Films' A BALLERINA'S TALE (Sundance Selects)

A documentary about ballet isn't necessarily something I'd normally feature here on the site, but with both of my girls having wrapped their first run with ballet in the spring - and starting a year-long run of classes this Saturday - my eyes are more open to it (and yes, I did see BLACK SWAN in the theater). IFC Films sent over the trailer for their Sundance Selects release, A BALLERINA'S TALE, the story of Misty Copeland, the first African-American dancer in the American Ballet Theater. The film by Nelson George arrives in theaters and on VOD October 14, 2015. Take a look...

Sam Smith is an Agent of SPECTRE... He Has to Be

Sam Smith must be working for Ernst Stavro Blofeld. There's no other way to explain him being named the voice behind the new JAMES BOND Theme, aside from him truly being an agent of evil. And don't get me wrong - I love evil, but I don't like whiny evil. This is just my way of rationalizing that one of my most disliked musical artists will now sing the opening words of SPECTRE, the latest installment of one of my favorite film series'.  While I'm sure the multiple GRAMMY-winning Mr. Smith is a fine lad, his music is an unexplainable annoyance for me, one I can only hope is made better by some miracle on September 25th when "Writing's On The Wall" is released for download. Perhaps the song will be excellent and all will be well, but for this listener, Smith's global hit, IN THE LONELY HOUR was unlistenable, whiny garbage.

Get Ready for Action: The Steven Seagal ABSOLUTION Sweepstakes is Here!

When it comes to action movies - especially the ones I grew up on - certain actors always come to mind, and one of those cinematic badasses is STEVEN SEAGAL. Yes, many hours were spent by yours truly studying the performances of Seagal through VHS tapes rented from long-gone video stores back in the day, and while times have changed, he's still fighting on-screen, and his latest effort is ABSOLUTION - out this week on DVD from Lionsgate (get it here). To celebrate the release, Entertainment Marketing Group has partnered with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and a few other action-packed websites to serve-up the Steven Seagal ABSOLUTION Sweepstakes - a giveaway in which one (1) Grand Prize Winner will score some Stamina X Workout Equipment and a copy of the film - and twenty (20!) runners-up will receive ABSOLUTION on DVD!
