A New President Doesn't Mean Instant Change for the U.S. or In Our Lives

We've had a new president for five days. Has anything really changed? Many of us felt more hopeful watching the inauguration, but what about now? Has that hope lingered? It's hard to keep hope alive. It's hard to stay positive, especially when nothing seems to change - or at least not to change quickly or quickly enough for our liking. ...more

var iamInit = function() {try{initIamServingHandler(234,412,541336,"")}catch(ex){}}() Just days after the announcement of the Academy Award nominations,  the Hollywood awards' season marched on last night with the 15th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.   SAG, the union that represents TV and movie actors and actresses has been in the news a lot lately because of the potential for a strike. But except for a rambling thank you speech by Sean Penn and a couple of funny asides by Tina Fey about how she won't get residuals in the future when "30 Rock" plays on the internet, the evening was about celebrating great performances of the year.  Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet and "Slumdog Millionaire" were big winners. ...more

Fun with Beyonce "Single Ladies" Video Parodies

She's with the Obamas.  She's hangin' with Justin Timberlake on "Saturday Night Live."  She sang at the big inauguration concert yesterday.  And tomorrow night she'll sing "At Last" for the Obama's first presidential dance.  She's Beyonce and if you haven't heard, she's got a little single out called, "Single Ladies."  The video of that catchy dance tune with Beyonce shaking her thang has for some reason sparked one of the biggest online parody frenzies, evah! ...more
