Film Buff Friday: My Way

Grrrrrrrrrrl Power!

A collision of Anvil! The Story of Anvil meets Thelma and Louise

"Adding to the authenticity are onscreen comments by rockers 
Steven Adler (Guns N' Roses), Rikki Rockett (Poison) and Chip Z'Nuff (Enuff Z'Nuff)"
The Hollywood Reporter

Meet Rebekah Starr, a small-town girl stuck in a mid-western corporate life. Yearning to break free, she ditches her briefcase for a Les Paul guitar and hits the highway. Destination? Los Angeles' famed rock 'n' roll Sunset Strip. 

Although Rebekah's marriage is failing, this is not some alternate fantasy life she's escaping to--it's her burning passion for music that can no longer be suppressed. On her journey, she serendipitously meets and befriends rock legends Steven Adler (Guns N' Roses) and Rikki Rockett (Poison). 

A witness to the power of passion and aspiration, My Way chronicles the hugely entertaining path one woman takes to pursue her seemingly impossible dream.

"Rebekah Starr is the perfect protagonist; she is a gutsy feminist and a talented musician. Audiences will be glad she made a bold statement by waking up one morning, and escaping her stagnant life!"
-- Independent Film Quarterly

After winning 5 top awards on the film festival circuit and receiving a theatrical release in New York City and Los Angeles, My Way now comes to DVD & VOD on 11/4.

"★★★★ A kick ass girl movie with a side of rock star!"
-- Santa Ana Movie Examiner

"A good film filled with... adventure, sex, fun and music!"

The DVD can be ordered now at the  MVD Shop or on Amazon.

Freeballing w/Justin Theroux

Look Ma No Hands!
Justin Theroux
We all know what freeballing is don't we kiddies? Well in case you don't it's when a man isn't wearing any underwear beneath his shorts, sweats, pants etc..thus the term free-balling, think about it, but not too long, OK?

Some guys were born to unleash the Kraken for everyone to stare at. In the case of genetically blessed The Leftovers star Justin Theroux it should be a requirement he never wear any undies to conceal his anaconda, never! It would be a crime against humanity.

I mean wow! Check out the capture above from his HBO series and tell me that is not one package you would like to open.

OK, enough of Justin and his bad boy antics it's time to focus on having a productive and terrific Thursday. Step away from the computer, come on, now!!!

Michael's Musings

Love A Man In Uniform?
Michael Shinafelt
Yes, it's that random day of the week I get to bridle you in and make you submit. Who's Your Daddy? If you said Michael Shinafelt, welcome. Other answers will be considered a very naughty mistake and you know what that means...

So with my thoughts and impressions from the last time I posted this, until now, here I go, and there is nothing you can do about it!

Special thanks to Vika Zal for getting me into the invite only screening at the Irish Film Festival in Los Angeles of "Handsome Devil." A wonderful coming of age gay themed film. See it if you get a chance.

To Naama Kates my lovely date for the evening: Tayin' in the Santa Ana Wins...

OK, as you all know Entertain Me endorses Hillary Clinton. Here is one beef I have about her supporters who aren't me. You bag on Trump for his instigating of hate and then turn around and post on social media that anyone who doesn't support Hillary can stop following you, remove themselves from your friends list etc. Food for thought.

Missing someone's spunk, is that a thing?

I was unable to attend Folsom in San Francisco this year. Thanks to the world wide web felt like I didn't miss a thing. 

Ever Notice Donald Trump and Heat Miser are never in the same room?

"Cheers to our hairless vaginas" - shit Gwyneth Paltrow says

Scream Queens is back for a second season. I really don't want to extrapolate.

Oh ye of little hype. Today I just realized by flipping channels that Project Runway is already two weeks into it's 15th season.

There's someone for everyone. Yes, really.

Enjoy your "Hump Day" I know I plan to ; )

What Happens In Vega$...

Want To Join Us?
Sting, John Stamos & Taylor Lautner
What happens in Vega$, for the most part, usually stays there. Luckily in this case this shot of hot three way Sting, John Stamos & Taylor Lautner didn't end up in one of the proverbial holes in the desert. 

The three stopped to strike a pose backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival held at the T-Mobile Arena in Sin City this past Saturday.

No word on what they did post photo I stated above for the most part what happens in Vega$ pretty much stays there. Damn! 

Now if you'll excuse me I have some serious fantasizing to do.

Happy Monday!

Morning Coffee

Morning Has Broken
Sharon Stone

It's Saturday morning time to wakey, wakey eggs and bakey...and of course a delightful cup of liquid crack otherwise known as coffee. For me it would be tea specifically Tejava, whatever it is you use to give yourself that morning jolt, let's face it we all use something, it's time to get it together and start your day, now, yes, I said do it and do it now!

Most of us should be so lucky to bend our ayems like one Ms. Sharon Stone pictured above on an outdoor patio that feels more like she is on luxury vacation than at her house reading her "Morning E-Mails" as she captioned the image.

Personally my morning experience is a very average one in comparison. My alarm sitting on my desk wakes me, I get up turn it off and flip on the light next to it, turn the computer on and get cracking on my routine all within the confines of my bedroom. Shocking, I know, right?!

Hey Sharon, can I come do my morning routine at your place sometime???

Did You Miss Us?

It's Party Time!
Kyle Richards & Lisa Vanderpump
In case any of you out there are having some Real Housewives of Beverly Hills yearning, like me, until the season six December 1st premiere on Bravo. Never fear Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards are here!

The two were red as Rosea Wine while attending a party in  Puerto Vallarta, Mexico together. Guess they really have kissed in make-up.

The photo is courtesy of Ms. Richard's Instagram, with no clever caption to accompany it. C'mon Kyle with your sass I expected more from you!

Being that it is Friday and that the weekend is here I thought this was a groovy way to get the party started!

Michael's Musings

Look Into My Eyes & Stop Staring At My Nipples
Michael Shinafelt
OK, I called this column Michael's Monday Musings last time, well because they were published on a F#@king Monday

From now on I will simply call it Michael's Musings. You never know when and where they will turn up. Are you ready? Here I go again!!! 

Thanks to a well played PR stunt on Dancing With The Stars Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke remain. Like they would actually have Burke kicked immediately off after her return to the show?!

If you haven't seen Don't Breathe yet and are a horror/suspense fan, from one to another, I highly recommend it, go!

To Sex-Head, I mean E.G. Daily currently starring in Rob Zombie's 31, congratulations! To the rest of you see it, see it!

I heard a Latin Woman call a Latin Man "N" word pimp the other day. Thanks Donald Trump for the perpetuating of twisted hate.

I recently dumped 13 pounds. Worship me, I am 50.

Why is everyone forgetting Angelina Jolie is Bisexual all of the sudden?

American Horror Story Season 6 is off to quite the lively start. I jumped twice! Can't wait for tonight's episode.

The humidity in Los Angeles this week is grody to the max!

 A shout out to Volcano Girl Shani Bayne who recently returned from Nicaragua producing a shoot in a, well, volcano. We met up for spin class for the first time in over a month yesterday,she had no lava burns or lamps.

To my favorite "bad girl" Ms. Traci Lords. Looking forward to attending the launch of your clothing line for Pin-Up Girl this Friday at the boutique in Burbank

That's all folks!

Kiefer Sutherland "Can't Stay Away"

Get dirty with Kiefer Sutherland "Down In A Hole"

Momentum continues for Kiefer Sutherland’s music career and debut album DOWN IN A HOLE with an upcoming performance of his new single “Can’t Stay Away” on ABC’s “The View” Sept. 21. DOWN IN A HOLE, a passion project chock-full of 11 co-written tracks by Sutherland, charted on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums charts. Sutherland is also on the cover of upcoming cover issues of Guitar Aficionado and Goldmine Magazine. Sutherland will be playing select dates this fall with more to be added soon (tour dates below).

Sutherland is everywhere as he promotes DOWN IN A HOLE and his new ABC series “Designated Survivor” premiering Sept. 21. His music video is on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown (click here to watch).

DOWN IN A HOLE is also featured in People, Wall Street Journal, Billboard, Huffington Post, Entertainment Weekly, Washington Post, Rolling Stone, Wall Street Journal, Guitar Player, The Boot, Vice/Live Nation TV, Closer Weekly, US Weekly, Sounds Like Nashville, Nashville Country Club, Taste of Country, The Pickup, Paste, Bella Magazine, Celebrity Page, Consequence of Sound, Associated Press and more!

Reviewers are applauding Sutherland’s vocals, guitar licks and songwriting style:

“Kiefer Sutherland...slows down and unwinds on his debut album, a collection of 11 rough-edged country songs…The album has an unexpected, unvarnished authenticity that is pleasant, if sometimes familiar.”
- Jill Lawless, Associated Press

“Kiefer Sutherland’s new album DOWN IN A HOLE casts the popular actor in the role of talented songwriter/musician, something as unexpected as a 24 plot twist. His voice and original material are strong, begging the question, “Kiefer, what took you so long?”
- Mike Ragogna, Huffington Post

“Highlighted by his gravelly, whiskey-soaked growl, 49-year-old Kiefer Sutherland’s debut set of electric guitar–enhanced Southern rockers and smoky barroom ballads fares better than most other actors’ first releases.”
- Ian Drew, US Weekly

“The perfect soundtrack for your Americana, dive bar road trip, “All She Wrote” starts off with an intro that would sound right at home during the duel scene in a modern western. Sutherland’s gritty vocals overlap electric guitar and crashing drums…”
- Kat Harlton, Lithium Magazine

“This record is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal or diary. All of these songs are pulled from my own personal experiences. As much as I have enjoyed the writing and recording process, I am experiencing great joy now being able to play these songs to a live audience, which was something I hadn’t counted on,” Sutherland said of DOWN IN A HOLE.

Sutherland recently wrapped up a North American tour where he sold out venues across the U.S. and Canada. Additional dates for this fall will be announced soon.

Keep up with Sutherland on the road by visiting or connect with Sutherland by following him on Twitter and Facebook.

At Long Last Emmy, Sarah Paulson

Dynamic Duo
Marcia Clark & Sarah Paulson
 Honestly I really did not watch that much of the Emmy Awards last night. That being stated I did catch what I thought was a brilliant opening monologue by Jimmy Kimmel and as he pointed out, Sarah Paulson brought along the best plus one of the evening. In case you didn't see them at all it was none other than attorney Marcia Clark who she was nominated for portraying in American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson.

Marcia proved to be Sarah's good luck charm as she finally won a long overdue Emmy Award for bringing her to life in the limited series. 

Ms. Paulson dedicated most of her speech to Clark when she accepted the gold.

Way to go Sarah! So glad you finally won, and I am impressed with your savvy in choosing Clark as your date for the evening. This will be one of those Emmy moments for the books!

My Name Is "Kinky Katrina" I'll Be Your Bloodsucker Tonight
Grace Jones

Grace Jones as a vampire in Keith Haring make-up = awesome!!!
Vamp [Blu-ray] (October 4th)


Two fraternity pledges head to a seedy part of town to find some entertainment for their college friends but are faced with bloodthirsty vampires! Keith (Chris Makepeace, Meatballs) and AJ (Robert Rusler, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge) want to make the right impression at college and so they devise a plan to get them into the best frathouse on campus. They head to the After Dark Club where they want to find a stripper for a party their friends won't forget, instead they find themselves among vampires led by Kinky Katrina (Grace Jones, A View to a Kill)! 

Almost certainly an influence on From Dusk til Dawn, Vamp is superbly designed by many of Grace Jones' own award-winning collaborators and features stunning effects by four-time Oscar winner Greg Cannom (The Lost Boys, Bram Stoker's Dracula). Delivering laughs and scares in equal measure, with the added bonus of vampy sex appeal, Vamp is a comedy horror romp with real bite!

Saturday Schwing! Josh Brolin

Giving Zero Fucks Realness
Josh Brolin
This image of a naked Josh Brolin enjoying his morning coffee during a sunrise in Joshua Tree, CA is brought to by Josh's Instagram page. Translation, He posted it himself.

"Yes" Josh has no shame when it comes to the celebrity skin game. In fact the ruggedly handsome actor offspring of the ruggedly handsome actor James Brolin is apparently proud of what he's got and loves to flaunt it judging by the caption he gave the photo: 

"Once upon a time, there was a dude who didn't give a..."

Cheers to that! So glad you are such a giver Josh!

Cyndi Lauper Continues Her "Detour"

On The Road Again
Cyndi Lauper

Turn right at the fork in the road...

Grammy®, Emmy® and Tony®-winning singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper is continuing to take country music by storm with her Billboard Top Country Album DETOUR, which is still in the Top 40 and continues to spark sales at retailers nationwide like Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and more! Lauper recently stopped by the TODAY show to chat with Kathy Lee and Hoda about DETOUR and her collaborations with country music greats, including Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Jewel, Vince Gill and Emmylou Harris. Click HERE to watch the clip.

Known best for her legendary pop icon status, Lauper is reigning in a new legion of fans with her new country-tinged album DETOUR featuring a collection of country covers from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s (track listing below). DETOUR debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

"These songs had a profound impact on me when I was a little girl listening to my Aunt Gracie's kitchen radio in Queens. I grew up listening and admiring Patsy Cline, Patsy Montana, Hank Williams - all the greats from the Golden Age of country. It was an honor to record those beautiful songs for DETOUR and I am so thankful for the fans and the country music community for welcoming me with open arms," Lauper said.

Lauper just returned from the European leg of her DETOUR tour and is currently in the midst of the second leg of her U.S. tour which takes her along the west coast before wrapping up October 8 at The Joint in Las Vegas. In addition, Lauper’s annual “Home for the Holidays” concert is scheduled for December 3 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. Additional details – including special guests performers - will be announced soon. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets before this highly anticipated tour sells out in your area!

Critics are raving about the pop star’s unique approach to country classics:

“The singer confidently twangs and yodels her way through covers of everyone from Patsy Montana to Patsy Cline.” Benjamin Lindsay, Vanity Fair

“Her new release, Detour, an album full of classic country song covers, is less an indicator of the veteran pop star’s desire to change genres than it is a sincere homage to a dozen tunes she grew up listening to on a transistor radio in her aunt’s kitchen and falling in love with.” – Chapman Baehler, Billboard Magazine

“Lauper and Norman native Vince Gill work together to cover ‘You’re the Reason Our Kids Are Ugly,’ … The song is a rollicking and infectious version of the 1978 country B-side recorded by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty.” Ben Luschen, Oklahoma Gazette

Get To Know Zachary Webber

Zachary Webber
Actor Zachary Webber is one cool dude. How do I know? I have co-starred with him on stage in a two person play. Since then Zach has kept very busy in his chosen career. Delving into everything from voice over to comedy and of course film. I knew when I met Zach he was going places. He has not proved me wrong. He recently had a role in Meg Ryan's directorial debut Ithaca which starred her and Tom Hanks. Zach is here to answer ten random things I have thrown at him. I can't wait to say "I knew him when!"

MS: Ithaca
ZW: I did a scene with Sam Shepard, and I personally made him break while improvising. It is and may always be the greatest moment in my career. I could have died on the spot. I doubt he remembers my name.

MS: Texas

ZW: It's my home, and it's where my heart is, or at least pieces of it. There's nothing particular about Texas if you grew up there and weren't meant to stay. The cows and the food and the bigotry are the main components, and if you ascribe to them all, you stay. I had to go to the big cities. I had to challenge everything I knew, and I still am today.
Rhinestone Cowboy?!
MS: Sasquatch Comedy
ZW: My best friends. Sasquatch has become my rock. I don't know where I'd be today without them.
MS: Barbie Dream House
ZW: My sister had one. Even I, an 8 year old boy, was sort of mesmerized by the thing. I had my own version at the time, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sewer Lair. But the Dream House was so big. The allure of having a house with a beautiful woman must have started there.
MS: Meg Ryan

ZW: I was enamored with Meg my whole life. When Harry Met Sally is still my favorite movie. She's as kind and gorgeous as you'd expect. One of the nicest people I will ever meet.
MS: Romance Novels
ZW: I never knew they would be the launch pad for my career. Somehow it has become my day job to read these books. If you'd told me when I was 16 that having a sex voice would earn me money I would have scoffed, and my voice would have broke in the process.
MS: Singing

ZW: Always a passion, never a practice.
MS: Puppy Love
ZW: 😎 I have a hard time imagining this one right now. I've known love, but it's always indelibly tied to heartbreak. I'm waiting for puppy love that stays young, as love should. I've always been with people who were dead wrong for me, who I loved deeply. My recent breakup is a testament to that, at an insane level. I had feelings I never knew I could feel. It was such immense passion, but only that. I think of leaves falling and her face, and I just cry. But we were wrong for each other. It's a sad truth everyone must face at some point. Maybe not everyone. But I'm not the type to hide from love. I dive in, at times to my detriment.
MS: Burning Man
ZW: It didn't change my life, it served my life in the moment I needed it most. I needed to be away from the world and see what genuine goodness could be. That can't be taken away. Coming back to earth has been very hard though.
MS: Favorite Drink

Leaping Lizards! Britney Spears

Look At Me, I've Still Got It!
Britney Spears
Hump Day is upon us and as you can see by this image of one Ms. Britney Spears she's so excited and she just can't hide it!

Apparently Brit, Brit had some down time and decided to express herself and ended up impressing herself and quite frankly me as well in the process. 

Look at her leap through the air with the greatest of ease in this photo she posted on her Instagram with the caption "Kinda bored today and wanted to see if I could still do a leap...It's not perfect but not too shabby either."

Honestly I think she is selling herself short. I would give her leap a ten, it looks perfect to me and seriously Brit, not many people could even come close to doing one that is this "not too shabby."

I wonder if she can leap tall buildings in a single bound too?

Happy Hump Day!

Media Blitz - Dolly Parton

From L-R: Shane Carter, President, Sony Music Entertainment Canada, Inc., Dolly Parton, Danny Nozell, President / CEO, CTK Management, Simon Rayner, Director, Marketing, Sony Music Entertainment Canada, Inc., Kirt Webster, President, Webster Public Relations

If It's Pure & Simple, It's Dolly!

There’s no mistaking the fact that Dolly Parton continues to reign as one of America’s favorite entertainers of all time – and the summer of 2016 has only added to that reputation with one of the most successful tours in the music business – and her first chart-topping solo album in a quarter-century.

Her Pure & Simple tour – her first extensive concerted touring effort in the United States since 1992, has sold out arena and arena, garnering her rave reviews from the critics for her pared-down approach at telling her musical story. She has just brought the tour north of the border to Canada, as well.

At the same time, the Country Music Hall of Fame member is by no means resting on her laurels. Her newest album, also titled Pure & Simple, has proven that the public’s love affair with Dolly Parton the musician and songwriter remains as strong as ever. The disc, released on August 19, debuted atop the Billboard Country Albums chart – marking her first-ever debut in the Soundscan era. Overall,Pure and Simple has become her seventh album to top the charts – and first since Eagle When She Flies in 1991. The album also reached a similar status in Canada, as well, hitting the top of the charts.
Hello Dolly!
Dolly & Katie Couric
The disc has impressed many of the industry’s toughest critics, with USA Today’s Bob Doerschuck saying “After half a century’s worth of performance, Dolly Parton’s voice still bubbles like a freshly popped bottle of champagne,” while ABC News’ Allan Raible extorts that Pure & Simple “is just another reminder of her durability as an artist. Like Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn, she is one of the few remaining from country’s old-guard and yet it is still amazing to think that her first albums were released fifty years ago.”

The worldwide entertainment icon has once again partnered up with Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores for a contest that will give fans a chance to win a “Dolly Parton VIP Concert Experience,” which includes airfare, hotel accommodations, 2 VIP concert tickets, a photo with Dolly, and other items. For more details, go to

The restaurant chain is also offering an exclusive edition of Pure & Simple that contains two bonus cuts. The association with Cracker Barrel also includes the new online “Front Porch Series,” which features Parton talking musical shop with newcomers Cam and RaeLynn. Fans can watch the clips at

In addition to these performances and reviews, Dolly has also been making the media rounds with such media luminaries as Larry King (, Katie Couric (, and CNBC’s “On The Money” (

Michael's Monday Musings

Don't Bother Me, I'm Basking
Michael Shinafelt
Today, rather than devote space to one thing I decided to give it up to many things. My impressions of this past week. Are you ready? Fasten your seat belts, because it's going to come hard and fast!

Congratulations to RuPaul on winning his first Emmy as reality TV show host. Much deserved, he is so good at what he does.

People who whistle in public places need to be silenced. It's really annoying.

My condolences to the Arquette family. I have encountered Alexis over the years he was a sweet soul. I am sorry for your loss.

I am loving the Real House Wives of New York reunion shows. Especially Bethenny Frankel for bringing bitchy back! So glad Jules Wainstein is not returning, I couldn't believe how much vagina she brought to the table.

Living in Southern California is the best! The weather of late has been so amazing.

Pretty Little Liars summer finale has only been little over a week ago and damn I miss that show already. Hurry up April 2017!

American Horror Story Season 6 premieres this Wednesday. That will fill the "Liars" void.

Nothing is better than a great spin class, luckily I have found two instructors at Gold's Gym Hollywood that fit the bill. Cheers Michelle and Jessica you are the best!

People yelling "Beat It Creep" at me when I am walking down the street wearing the T-Shirt Traci Lords gave me from her clothing line with the saying on it is always good fun.

I'm ready for the election to be over, seriously it feels like it's been going as long as I've been alive!
