Rio Reveals

The Los Angeles River is the original source life for the City of Los Angeles. It is where the indigenous Tongva and later, the Spanish built the City’s first settlements.

Rio Records has created an at-home immersive production, uniting Los Angeles artists, culture, and community for a live journey along the past present and future of the LA River.

Who could ever forget Diana Ross’s 1983 concert in a torrential rainstorm in New York City’s Central Park? What I remember most vividly was when she was crying, addressing the crowd, and said, “Maybe they’ll let me do it again tomorrow…” as the wind and rain soaked her from head to toe. Well, they did indeed let her do it again the next day. The weather was glorious, and she was magnificent. (Google it!)  Diana Ross got her start with a little group called the Primettes (which became The Supremes), Motown Records,… Read More

Schitt’s Creek

When Schitt’s Creek broke records for the most wins for a single season in comedy, taking home nine Emmy Awards including “Outstanding Comedy Series” this past September, I immediately reprioritized my “Shows-to-Check-Out” list and started watching this hysterically funny, over-the-top and delightfully captivating Netflix production. When the super well-to-do Rose family learns that they have lost their fortune due to embezzlement, they are faced to live in a rundown motel located in Schitt’s Creek, a small town that video chain tycoon Johnny Rose (comedic genius Eugene Levy) bought for his spoiled and… Read More

Doomsday is upon us, and with his latest disaster flick, director Ric Roman Waugh (Angel Has Fallen) has taken our impending apocalypse to cataclysmic heights — and blockbuster records. The one to save us from such imminent extinction is our favorite action star Gerard Butler (Angel Has Fallen), who dons the brave shoulders of John Garrity, a loving husband to his wife Allison and a doting father to his son Nathan. According to the news, smaller fragments from a passing comet called Clarke are set to enter the earth’s atmosphere and burn… Read More

Downton Abbey

If you were to look back on the most popular shows of the first two decades of the 21st century, you would find a subtle shift in the form of storytelling; there was a new edgier, “millennium” vibe to the stories being told. They were progressive without being too serious (Modern Family), they commented on American consumerism and the deconstruction of American values by taking us to where it all started (Mad Men), and yeah, they also had dragons (Game of Thrones). They all had a “gimmick,” yet, if one television series… Read More

Madonna Rocks On

I distinctly remember Easter in 1989 when I—a 12-year-old—came downstairs to find my basket. Already past the age of believing in that magical bunny, I was in it mostly for the candy. But to my bewilderment there was indeed an “Easter egg” waiting for me—Madonna’s Like a Prayer album. It may seem like an odd present to celebrate a Christian holiday, but for many Madonna IS a religion. And her latest gospel, album Madame X, is set to drop from Live Nation, Interscope Records and Maverick on Friday, June 14th. Madonna has spent the last… Read More

Ain’t Too Proud!

I was only nine years old when it all began. “The Way You Do the Things You Do” and “My Girl” (1964), “Get Ready” and “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” (1966), “I Wish it Would Rain” ((1967), “Cloud Nine” (1968), “I Can’t Get Next To You” (1969), “Psychedelic Shack” and “Ball of Confusion” (1970), “Just My Imagination” (1971), and “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” (1972). If you are a fan of the Motown era (like me!) these titles bring to mind only one name: The Temptations! Known for their choreography, distinct harmonies,… Read More
