    Don’t let the zip code fool you. Despite living in Los Angeles, writer Erika E. Wade is a proud Southern girl who isn’t afraid to remind anyone that thinks otherwise. Granted, her long exposure to the West Coast doesn’t make it very easy. Wade, who recently celebrated her first “LA-Versary”, joked that she’s slowly losing […]

    snatchedmovie

    Snatched // Help me put the fun in Non-Refundable “Snatched” will make a great Mother’s Day gift movie.  Comedienne Amy Schumer’s sophomore saga boasts only half as many laughs as her big screen debut “Trainwreck.”  Nevertheless, “Snatched” generates sufficient slapstick and silliness to keep you smirking.  Presumably, “Warm Bodies” director Jonathan Levine and “Ghostbusters” scenarist […]

    Interview with James McMurtry James McMurtry spends hundreds of hours in the van each year, traveling American’s highways on the way to the 100 plus shows he and his band annually perform.   The van hours, however, aren’t just down time.

    Beyoncé may just be rubbing off on the self-proclaimed Queen of Bounce. Last year, the multi-Grammy award-winner broke the internet when she announced the Nashville stop of her Formation World Tour would be shifting from the summer to the fall. It only seems coincidental that the Louisiana native would pull the same stunt when their […]
