NUFAN true to punk roots
Today's skateboarding, chain-wearing, hawk-sporting skater-teens
who consider themselves "hardcore punk" fans date the scene
way back to early 2002 - the birth of Good Charlotte and Simple
Plan. But long before the conception of these little punks,
there existed the original, independent, anti-establishment
punk rock world in the mid-'70s and '80s, founded by bands making
a statement of individuality and creating the culture as a reaction
to mass commercialism.
Mambo Italiano comes out as a hit
The comparison has often been made that Mambo Italiano is nothing
more than an Italian remake of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
The comparison, however, would be wrong. While both movies
are about "ethnic" families dealing with an issue that seems
shocking at first, that is where the similarities end.

Same ol' crap at the Emmys
To a TV critic, the Emmys are like Christmas morning, except
for the lack of gifts, family, novelty songs about grandmothers
being killed, snow, stockings and pretty much any sort of merriment.
On the plus side, the Emmys have Matt LeBlanc. How you doin'?
