An Impromptu “Hallelujah Chorus”

Imagine wandering around the mall one day and having more than 600 people spontaneously break into song. That’s exactly what happened to shoppers at a Philadelphia Macy’s last month when they were treated to an ebullient rendition of the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah.” Part of the Knight Foundation’s “Random Acts of Culture” initiative, the event included members of the Philadelphia Opera Company, along with participants from 28 other choral groups. The group was accompanied by Macy’s in-house Wanamaker Organ, the largest pipe organ in the world. [YouTube] Keep reading »

69-Year-Old Granny DJ Spins A Mean Set

Meet DJ Mamy Rock, the 69-year-old granny who knows her way around a turntable.

The Curse Of Reality TV: Why I’m Scared For The Palins

This Sunday night, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” premieres on TLC. Early clips from the series show Sarah “bein’ free” while climbing a glacier and communing with mama grizzlies. So I assumed that the show was going to be a glorified nature show.

You’re going to have to go shopping for presents eventually and sometimes the movies are a good break from those T. Rex claws you get from lugging around too many bags in the cold.

Paul Reubens Brings Pee-Wee Herman To Broadway

In case you haven’t heard, “The Pee-wee Herman Show” opened on Broadway this week and it is offering up all the playhouse shenanigans you can handle.

All the originals are back, including Magic Screen, Mailman Mike, Pterri, and furniture favorite Chairy. To keep up with modern times, the play also introduces a few new elements, including a talking ShamWow! and sly mentions of Reubens indecent exposure arrest. While the secret word of “The Pee-wee Herman Show” might be “fun,” not all the critics agree. See what some of them have to say after the jump. Keep reading »
