The “Interrupteds” are remodeling, which is a pleasant way of saying that we have ripped off the back end of our house and have been single-handedly air-conditioning the neighborhood for the last month or so.
Big Mac is a big hunk of a dog and everyone that meets him just loves him. He’s said to be an American bulldog/mastiff mix about 5 years old. He had been adopted a year or so ago but recently returned due to trying to put the family’s pet tortoise in his belly. Thankfully, Big Mac was unsuccessful, and the tortoise lives to tell the tale.
On July 2, director Scott Derrickson adds “Deliver Us From Evil” to his cache of creepy horror films including “Sinister” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.” Based on the real-life experiences of former-NYPD-officer-now-demonologist Ralph Sarchie, the film stars, along with plenty of demonic possessions, a rich cast including Eric Bana as the pessimistic, skeptic cop Sarchie, Joel McHale as his joke-cracking partner and Edgar Ramirez as Mendoza, an undercover priest. GetOut had the chance to talk with Eric Bana and Joel McHale about the upcoming film.

Although she’s had a few great reoccurring roles on TV shows like “Parks and Recreation,” Jenny Slate is a comedic actress who’s rarely been given a chance to shine on screen. After accidentally dropping the f-bomb, she was under utilized on “Saturday Night Live” and left after a season. Then she had some supporting roles in “The Lorax,” “This Means War,” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip wrecked,” where none of the actors came out looking good. In “Obvious Child,” Slate is finally given a chance to show off her full range as both a comedian and actress, proving that she’s a star in the making capable of tremendous feats.

Each and every one of us will walk a different path down the road of life, and yet students are expected to follow a systematized process known as the education system. Just doing well in school these days is not enough to carry students on to the next step, it takes something extra within. These days, we are seeing students struggling to get through the school system effectively; only 30 percent of students attending a four-year, public university graduate within the expected four-year path. These days it is taking students five, six, even seven years to get a Bachelor’s degree and I’ve discovered the reason why. It’s an ancient truth that can be observed on any campus, in any classroom, at any workplace.
