SCILLA SIEKMANN was the first act that lured me into Skinny’s Lounge in the NoHo Arts District. Once in there, her interpretation of JANIS JOPLIN's “Piece Of My Heart” had me convinced and convicted (like a religious conviction) and I became a huge booster for this multi-faceted vocalist.

On a Monday morning, in June 1979, a limousine pulled in front of Tower Records in West Covina, where I worked at the time. A man and two women exited the vehicle. The trio wore identical black t-shirts with white lettering. As they approached the entrance, I noticed the man carried several albums under his arms.

Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella (I never thought I’d use those three words in tandem) turns out to be a visually sumptuous, beautifully scored (Patrick Doyle), and altogether enjoyable rendition of Charles Perrault’s well-known fairy tale, as adapted by Chris Weitz and fairly light on the Grimm.

In Hip Hop there has always been a long obsession over who is king or queen. Every music label perceives itself as familial and dynastic in nature, trying to secure itself as top and the fans take sides by pledging their undying allegiance to their favorite label, at least till the best new thing comes along. Until recently television has never captured the epic drama that is Hip Hop but Fox’s innovative new show “Empire” created by Lee Daniels, (“The Butler” & “Precious”) is the first of its kind.

If you thought the Virgin Mary was the only account of immaculate conception to be told, then you haven't been watching the CW Network recently. Based on Venezuelan telenovela "Juana la Virgen," comedy-drama "Jane The Virgin" follows a young pragmatic Latin woman (played by Gina Rodriguez) who makes a virginity vow at a young age. Unfortunately, Jane is accidentally artificially inseminated and impregnated with semen meant for someone else, thus the make believe story begins.

Shonda Rhimes Does It Again.

If you don’t know that name then chances are you may have lived under a rock for the past few years or simply don't watch TV. But in case you don't know, Shonda Rhimes is a screenwriter, director and producer extraordinaire most known for highly rated shows such as medical drama series “Grey’s Anatomy” and breakthrough political thriller “Scandal.” Her unique brand of storytelling has made her a television force unable to be reckoned with. Rhimes’ newest endeavor, “whodunit” mystery “How to Get Away With Murder,” presses new boundaries, giving us that familiar Shonda “OMG” factor we’ve come to love, while still showing us something entirely new. It’s edgier, sexier, and darker compared to most criminal law shows on network television, making it stand out amidst the pack.

Few would argue that in American popular culture, New York dominates theater, and Los Angeles dominates film, despite the rise in runaway production. 

But not so with rock music from the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s, for which several cities can make a claim for No. 1. In Detroit, they will boast that you can’t do much better than the Contours — the greatest pure rock and roll band on Motown — Mitch Ryder, the MC5, Bob Seger, and, yes, Grand Funk Railroad.
