Cheers To 2020!

Hey, It's 2020...
Michael Shinafelt
"I'm Barbara Walters, and this is 2020" - Barbara Walters

Whether Ms. Walters is officially using her timely quote on any New Year's Eve broadcast remains to be seen and heard (if she is I suspect it's going to be a surprise, or archival footage of her doing it.) I wanted to use the quote today here on Entertain Me to with you and yours a Happy New Year!

However you choose to spend your evening be safe and have fun! Personally New Year's isn't a thing for me. I like to spend it at home where it is nice and quite and doesn't cost me an outrageous fortune.

Refer to the Miranda Priestly meme below, this sums up my feelings on the whole to do...



Cheers!

Spend 2020 with me at:

Monday Motivation

Bend It Like Me
David Beckham
Cheers to another short Holiday Week peeps! As if that isn't Monday Motivation enough to top off the week, well here's another idea to keep you moving. "Yes" today's Motivation for the last Monday of 2019 is focus.

2020 promises to be a challenging year and the best thing one can do for ones self is to not lose sight of what you need and want heading into, and living all 365 days of it.

Thus I'm hitting the mat, as in yoga this ayem. Yoga not only keeps me focused it keeps me calm and open to the world around me. Your frozen when your heart and mind aren't open and yoga keeps the door wide for me. 

I'm going to join Entertain Me's yoga poster boy David Beckham's tribe this year. "Yes" David is a yoga practitioner and I'm going to bend it like him. OK, I'm gonna bend it like moi. 

So, find that thing that will keep you keep on keeping in 2020 and stick to it. Starting today, which is 2020 adjacent, not to mention a Monday, get motivated, do it, and do it now!

Mat Time!

National Card Playing Day

Four Of A Kind
Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, James Dean & Elvis Presley
Ever wonder what to do during that odd space between Christmas and New Year's where you lose track of time and more often than not forget what day it is?

Well wonder no more, while I was browsing Twitter Pee Wee Herman was so kind as to point out today is National Card Playing Day. "Yes" this is a good activity to while away the hours until the next big to do, the celebration of the 2020!

As illustrated by the popular icons above four of a kind is the hand to beat, in a Poker Match. Perhaps you care for a more basic game, like Go Fish?

Whatever your poison, play cards today, it will definitely keep you covered in the Nebulous Zone until NYE hits.

"Infinitely Yours"

In Its Los Angeles Premiere for Three Nights
January 16–18, 2020

Next Stop: Sundance Film Festival & U.S. Tour

REDCAT presents the Los Angeles premiere of Infinitely Yours by animator, designer and performer Miwa Matreyek for the debut of her latest work. Running for three performances from Thursday, January 16 through Saturday, January 18, 2020, the award-winning interdisciplinary creator brings her nightmarish vision of climate grief to Los Angeles audiences before heading to Park City, Utah for the works’ world premiere during Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier program. Infinitely Yours will then embark on a North American tour throughout June. All music for Infinitely Yours was composed, recorded and performed by Morgan Sorne who will join Matreyek for the REDCAT show as live musical accompaniment.

Infinitely Yours
ABOUT INFINITELY YOURS:
Further pushing her signature technique of layered projections, Infinitely Yours is an emotional, dream-like meditation on climate catastrophe and the Anthropocene – the proposed current era where human influence has effected almost all realms of earth’s natural systems. Matreyek’s shadow traverses macro and micro scales, as her silhouette shape-shifts to experience the world from various perspectives. An earth overflowing with trash. A person drowning in a plastic-filled ocean. A school of fish caught in a trawling net. The work is a viscerally impactful, embodied illustration of news headlines we see every day about climate change and how we’re all inexplicably tied together, the complex harm humanity causes to the world, and what it might mean for all of us to be living in this changing world.

This project is supported by a 2019 Princess Grace Foundation Special Projects Grant.

ARTIST STATEMENT: 
“My work investigates how live performance, in the interdisciplinary space between cinema and theatre, can become a unique, powerful form of emotionally impactful storytelling. I make shows that integrate the shadow silhouette of a live performer (myself) with intricate layers of projected animations that unfold in a dreamlike narrative. My work (both solo and with my theater company, Cloud Eye Control) confronts the tension between humanity and nature, and the ideas of natural and unnatural; does human nature drive us to create an ‘unnatural’ world around us? Have humans become ‘unnatural’ to the planet? My work weaves scientific ideas and environmental themes. I want my projects to push myself and the audience to see and experience the world from different perspectives including ones that are not human, and imagine worlds outside of our daily scope of perceptions. My goal through form and content is to take the audience on an emotional journey that feels like a muscle memory from a dream.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Miwa Matreyek is an animator, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles, touring internationally since 2010. Coming from a background in animation, Matreyek creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her kaleidoscopic animations as a shadow silhouette, in dreamlike visions that make invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between humanity and nature.

A few past presentations include TED, MOMA, White Light Festival at Lincoln Center, New Frontier Program at Sundance Film Festival, REDCAT, RADAR LA and many more.

Matreyek is also a co-founder and core-collaborator of the multi-media theater company, Cloud Eye Control.

Matreyek is a recipient of the Sherwood Award (2016), Creative Capital Award (2013), Princess Grace Award (2007), and Princess Grace Foundation’s Special Projects award (2009, 2012, 2019).

Michael's Musings

You, Light Up My Life...
Michael Shinafelt
Christmas 2019 is officially over, did you survive? I'm guessing you did since you are reading this. My day was rather low key, lot's of phone calls and texts from friends & family. A delicious steak quesadilla from the Mexican place down the street, and I finally watched Boy Erased with Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe. Yeah, there's that, time to put this Holiday to rest!

It's all fun and games until you start licking on the Lady Fingers

Best Byline via The Daily Beast: "The "CATS" Movie is a Boring Disaster Filled With Joyless Pussies"

That felt like an exotic diaper

Did I mention I got a Michael Myers blanket for my Birthday? Now I have.

Loved the movie Bombshell

Always remember you can't eat the Bluebird of Happiness

Get those trousers off boy, don't be a sissy 😮

Dear Sarah Hukabee, Continuing to be mother of the year teaching your kids to mock someone with a speech impediment. I hope you get diarrhea.



Woman Crush of the Week - Nicole Kidman for wearing this suit to the Bombshell premiere and for her performance in Boy Erased.

Monday Motivation

Special Delivery
Hugh Jackman
OK, it's almost here, the Big "C" draws nigh...and you know what's on my mind? Indulging in Holiday Cheer while still honoring all the hard work I put into my body and not letting it all go to waste.

So who better to inspire us to that mind set than Hugh Jackman. With a mere two days to go behold, unto you Monday Motivation is bestowed in the form of The Jackman! Because, well, he's jacked.

While I pretty sure my body will never reach the heights of what his has. Mr. Jackman does inspire and motivate nonetheless.

He has a great upper body, which is my problem area. I have obtained bigger arms of late and am regaining some of the ab definition I lost when I was laid up for four months post surgery. Hugh is motivating me to stay focused.

Not to mention he has a package for all of you on this last Monday before Christmas. It's in plain view and what a nice view it is, if you get my drift (I think you do.)

Time to MM minions!

3 More Days...

Muskrat Love?
Kristin Cavalarri & Jay Cutler 
Yep only three more days, if you have to ask until what, then I guess you must be living under a reindeer. Thus I thought we would celebrate today with the too cute for Christmas Couple Kristin Cavalarri & Jay Cutler.

With the Season 3 premiere of Very Cavalarri looming on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 9 p.m. ET, I thought perfect because commerce is part of what Christmas is all about. Don't pretend it isn't minions. 

Now that we got that our of the way, moving on, forward never backward, especially not sideways.

Other than the commercial tie in, this shot of the couple made visions of the video for the song Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses dance in my head. If you aren't familiar that's what YouTube is for.

So now that I have some sort of Holiday feels, I guess I should think about spreading some Holiday Cheer. "Yes" it's time to Ho, Ho, Ho!

Just Because...Margot Robbie

Hello Gorgeous
Margot Robbie
Just Because...I don't wanna Christmas, Just Because...Her hot buzz film Bombshell opened this weekend & Just Because...I am one of her fans, that's correct Minions - Heeeeere's Margot Robbie.

Margot was snapped in a snazzy navy blue dress entering the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show in Hollywood. I think she could wear potato sack and make it look good.

Obviously she was promoting Bombshell which just opened this weekend. A film which I intend to take in either today or tomorrow depending on how things go with my schedule.

I have been a fan of Robbie ever since I saw her excellent work as Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. What's that? "Yes" I know she had done other films before that, and while I had heard of her, as well as them. I have never viewed any of her work prior. 

Moving on, I hope you have a Bombshell free day, unless it's at the movies!

Film Buff Friday: Betty - They Say I'm Different


Betty: They Say I'm Different
Before Beyoncé, Madonna and Prince - there was Betty Davis

"Astonishing and tantalising" - The Wire

Arriving on DVD on January 17th via MVD Entertainment Group

Funk Queen Betty Davis changed the landscape for female artists in America. She "was the first..." as former husband Miles Davis said. "Madonna before Madonna, Prince before Prince". 

An aspiring songwriter from a small steel town, Betty arrived on the 70's scene to break boundaries for women with her daring personality, iconic fashion and outrageous funk music. She befriended Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, wrote songs for the Chambers Brothers and the Commodores, and married Miles - startlingly turning him from jazz to funk on the album she named "Bitches Brew". 


She then, despite being banned and boycotted, went on to become the first black woman to perform, write and manage herself. Betty was a feminist pioneer, inspiring and intimidating in a manner like no woman before. Then suddenly - she vanished. 

Creatively blending documentary and animation, Betty - They Say I'm Different traces the path of Betty's life, how she grew from humble upbringings to become a fully self-realized black female pioneer the world failed to understand or appreciate. 

After years of trying, the elusive Betty, forever the free-spirited Black Power Goddess, finally allowed the filmmakers to creatively tell her story based on their conversations.

Hump Day & Chill - Happy Birthday To Me!

54 Pick-Up
Michael Shinafelt
Happy Birthday To Me! "Yes" it's today, thus I thought I would celebrate by reminding myself of who I am and where I've been. When I think about it, it's quite a journey. Cheers to me turning 54 the best is yet to come!


Weight Loss is a very personal journey. It is one that has to be done for the correct reasons or it is not going to work, I repeat not going to work. Take it from one who said they were going to do it several times before they actually did. I am 5' 7 and said I was going to lose it when I was 180 lbs. I then said I was going to do it when I was 190 lbs. Then I reached 200 - yep I said I was going to do it again then too. Well guess what I didn't do it until I reached 213! By then I fit into none of my old clothes (well that happened at 180 to be fair) and only bought things that work with my expanding waist line i.e. large shirts, drawstring pants etc...

Sometimes you have to lay your pimp hand down! Yep, this is when I finally decided to drop the weight and drop it noooow! It's about wanting to feel good about yourself. It's about claiming who you are. It's about, as Janet Jackson so directly put it Control. "Yes" weight loss is about taking control of who you are and being in a positive mind space. Life is a journey we are not going to be who we are one hundred percent of it. This being stated, once we allow ourselves to access who we are on an honest and real level then we can do anything! 

Who are we to judge ourselves? The first step to happiness is to accept who you are and deal with it. Life is not about perfection it's about acceptance. Does this mean you have to like everything? Hell to the Fucking  No! It means deal with it and find out what works for you. That is exactly what I did.

Being authentic is the best gift you can give yourself. Start there, make your weight loss journey about your happiness. It's not about pleasing anyone else. I can tell you I found a wonderful guy with a six pack when I was 213 lbs. He liked me for me, because despite the fact that I was overweight, I still had some self esteem. Of course he loved the fact that I lost it. But it was because I wanted to. Doing it for yourself is the key to victory. 

I decided to take this journey when I was 51. Thus proving you are never too old and you are never too late. Honestly I was tired of looking like a balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade. 

Thus one day I got out of my bedded stupor (I suffered from clinical depression for three years prior, was treated and learned how to manage my life through therapy and anti-depressants which I have not been on for over four years now) and said: You've got this Mother F#cker! I wanted my outside to match my inside. I wanted to like what I saw in the mirror. 

And so the journey began...I started with the best diet I knew: fruits, veggies & meat. Although you should eat lots of meat, protein anytime of day is acceptable. You should try to do your fruit aka sugar that is acceptable in the ayem and veggies round the clock. Sound boring? It truly isn't, it's all a matter of reprogramming your way of thinking. 


OK, I will admit it isn't easy. When I started for every 5 pounds I lost, I gained three back for a long time. The key is I did not give up. That would have been an easy thing to do. Get discouraged and throw in the towel. I owed this to who I am, not who I wanted to be. I am this person who wants this from themselves, not what anyone wants from me. It's about who you are and what you want. “Yes” I have emphasized this before. But it is the key element to what I am stating.

As I continued on this journey I kept moving adding in more exercise to what I had been doing. FYI weight loss is an 80/20 proposition - 80 percent what you consume 20 percent exercise. Exercise is to keep you and your mind healthy and focused. It's also there to take the weight you have lost and make it look fab! One of the unexpected benefits of me dumping the weight is doing my weekly routine of: Spinning, Abs, Weights & Yoga I have achieved definition in my stomach for the first time ever at 53 years old. Imagine that?! 

What that you ask? Do I still drink alcohol? The answer is "Yes" but in moderation. Honestly at this point two glasses of wine gets me tipsy. That's what Uber is for. (call a driver, don't drive drunk!) Do I  have cheat meals, you are damned right I do. Most of the week I eat clean, but there is that one day a week I eat, not like a pig. But I will eat something not on my diet and in moderation. I have a thing for pizza, burgers, Mexican food and my ultimate favorite snack is brie and crackers.

OK, now I'm hungry for some In-N-Out Burger, but I had pizza yesterday so it's off limits until next weekend. The one trick to adhering to healthy eating habits is to reprogram your way of relating to food. Don't think of it as depriving yourself, because you aren't dieting you are eating cleaner and more efficiently. I view my changed eating habits as being good to myself. Also reminding myself of all the hard work it took me to get there and not wanting that effort have been a waste of time. I remind myself of how great I now look naked too. Hey, that's a big one!

Speaking of big ones, certain other things appear to have gotten bigger when I lost the weight. Another unexpected, but welcome change to my body. If I can do it, you can too. Trust me you've got this!

Odd Couple

Meow!
Taylor Swift & James Corden
New Couple Alert! Bare witness to Taylor Swift and James Corden out on the town. JK Last night was the premiere of the movie Cats and the two of them co-star in it. But how fun would it be if they were really dating? Yeah, I thought so too 😃

Anyway, "Yes" about last night, it was the premiere of the movie musical Cats and it was a big to do. Director Tom Hooper says he finished the final cut of the film 36 hours before the premiere. Wow! That's really "cutting" it close! 

Oddly enough, or perhaps not. There is no word on how good it is or isn't really. That may be because of it getting it's final touches at the last minute, or it could be that they fear the critics will not like it.

Personally I have not interest in seeing it one way or the other. Nothing about it appeals to me which is why, never have I ever seen the Andrew Lloyd Webber show.

C'est La Vie!

Monday Motivation

Rock On With Your Bad Sweater!
Ozzy Osbourne 
With a scant 9 days until Christmas I thought I would motivate you with the gift of laughter. "Yes" today's Monday Motivation arrives in the form of Ozzy Osbourne wearing an ugly Gremlins inspired Christmas Sweater.

Seriously are there truly any good looking Christmas Sweaters? Aren't they all by law ugly AF?

But this particular one really stood out when I spied it. It made me recoil, repulsed, had my head spinning round 360 degrees, yet at the root of all that tomfoolery was laughter.

Yeah, I am giver, and so is Ozzy apparently, or is it unwittingly? 

Honestly I don't know how anyone celebrity or otherwise thinks the Christmas Sweaters they wear are not an assault on the senses of common decency.

Now get motivated, it's Monday after all!!!

"Play That Rock n' Roll"

Supersuckers
The band's 13th studio album arrives February 7th via Acetate Records

Listen to the single "Ain't Gonna Stop" HERE

Pre-order HERE


"Ain't gonna stop until I stop it, Ain't gonna let it go until I drop it," growls Eddie Spaghetti on the first track off the Supersuckers 13th studio album, "Play That Rock n' Roll."  Tracked over the course of four sweltering days at Willie Nelson's Austin, TX studio, "Play That Rock n' Roll" rocks with an amphetamine intensity, delivering muscular riffs, big choruses and more than a few tricks up it's sleeve.
 
Raw, immediate and often times hilarious, "Play That Rock n' Roll' is the album a band makes after slugging it out on the road for thirty years (barring a one year hiatus while Eddie battled throat cancer).  No frills, no guest stars and no collaborations, the album earns the listener's ear - the Supersuckers have lived this shit and you can feel it.
 

Songs like "Bringing It Back" and "Last Time Again" deliver a Ramones-like wall of sound, courtesy of guitarist Metal Marty Chandler, while "You Ain't The Boss Of Me" recalls Dirty Deeds-era AC/DC - and never one to be taken too seriously, Eddie and company make sure to keep the Supersuckers tongue firmly planted in cheek with "That's a Thing?" and "Gettin' Into Each Other's Pants".   The album also includes a rousing cover of Michael Monroe's "Dead, Jail or Rock n' Roll" and a long overdue revival of the Allen Toussaint penned "A Certain Girl," which appears as an "unlisted track."
 
All in all, "Play That Rock n' Roll" delivers the middle finger brand of Rock n' Roll the band has been known for since signing to Sub Pop in the early 1990's.  Combining the ferocity of Motörhead, the off kilter humor of Cheap Trick and the swagger of Steve Earle, the 'Suckers earned their spurs playing everywhere from dirt floor dive bars to The Tonight Show. Thirty years later, they still deliver the goods, or in the words of Eddie Spaghetti himself...
 
"The Supersuckers have been doing this for a long time. A LONG time. And the fact that we're still doing it is not lost on us. We still love Rock n Roll. I mean, we must. There's no other explanation for why we would still be putting out fresh, new rock music anymore. No one NEEDS it. Hell, hardly anybody even WANTS it. But here it is. Another master class in quality Rock n' Roll. Sure it's for the few, the proud, the People of Impeccable Taste, the Connoisseurs Of Quality but it makes us happy to know we still got it. And we do. We might be better than we've ever been and that's exciting. So here it is, our love letter to good, ass kicking rock n roll. Turn it on, turn it up and listen to the Supersuckers play that Rock n' Roll!!"

Waxing Nostalgic

We Go Together
Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta
Being it is the season for nostalgia, sentimentality, etc... this photo really brought back fond memories for me of my youth. That's correct minions, I've got chills they're multiplying!

My first girl crush Olivia Newton - John and John Travolta got their inner Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson on for a Grease Sing-A-Long in Palm Beach, FL.

Olivia captioned the photo on Instagram with: "First time in costume since we made the movie! So excited!" 

Indeed as were the attendees of the three day event called "Meet N Grease" which will include a Q&A session with the dynamic duo.

Thus today's secret word is "Grease" because, after all "Grease" is the word!
