And indeed it has, we guess, because just as everything that has ever happened has led to everything that is happening, everything that has happened will also lead to whoever wins The Voice tomorrow night. If you didn’t get all that, it’s fine, because it’s mid December and we didn’t either. We’re still flummoxed to find ourselves at the end of yet another season of The Voice, trying not to … read more

Meanwhile, whether you consider it escapism or too close to home, leaders are … read more

But until he showed up wearing a chapeau in support of wife Jessica Biel’s turn in The Book of Love last weekend, I don’t think any of us really got what hats mean to Justin, or what Justin might mean to them.
Here’s … read more

Former hippies adore Dylan, but he sure as hell doesn’t like them. By identifying with but never quite disappearing … read more
