In Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness,” the narrator speaks of his instability caused by the fever dream of the jungle this way: “(It) was the playful paw-strokes of the wilderness, the preliminary trifling before the more serious onslaught which came in due course.”
“On the subject of the ‘dreamers:’ where are the parents of these people who are the ones who broke the law by coming into our country? And what about ‘immigrants rights?’ They have NO rights!”

Tempe native Blake Webb spent three years in marketing before deciding to pursue his dream of acting and move to Los Angeles. Acting clichés aside, it took a while for Webb to begin his professional acting journey, but the two years he’s been in the business have been busy with independent films, shorts and even a play, and has produced a résumé loaded with lead roles.
First, I’d like to thank the teachers, faculty, family and friends here today to celebrate the end of a chapter in our lives … and the beginning of a new one.
America’s poor haven’t been doing so well lately. Their political champions in the Democratic Party seem more focused on all those swing voters in the middle-income levels. And while income inequality has become a popular talking point for the self-anointed defenders of the poor, the fact is that the income gap has increased on President Obama’s watch.
My name is Paulo G. Peña. I would like to apologize in advance for any stutters I have; I have a slight fear of public speaking, and there are more people than I thought there was going to be, but I will try my best for the people.
Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers allowed GetOut to listen to a preview of “The Independent,” the band’s seventh album due out April 29. Clyne was kind enough to give a track-by-track analysis and discuss each song as it appears in order on the album.
Thompson Square, the married country duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson who last played at Country Thunder in 2012, will this year be headlining day one of the festival. The Explorer caught up with Keifer by phone to get his thoughts on the upcoming performance, as well as what it’s like working with his wife.
Simply put, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of the best action-adventure films ever made and is the best time I’ve had at the movies since The Avengers. In fact, the new Cap film rivals and maybe even surpasses The Avengers in both dramatic story and charming wittiness, and it comes close to beating the super-team flick in overall wow factor as well. My recommendation is that you run to your local theater and “buckle” up for this awesome ride before you hear too much about it. (Don’t watch any more previews – don’t read anything else about this movie – just go – now.)
In this image released by NBC, Will Smith, left, and host Jimmy Fallon act out the evolution of hip-hop dancing on the premiere of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," in New York. One month in, and NBC’s generational trade of Jay Leno for Jimmy Fallon at the “Tonight” show is succeeding beyond the dreams of network honchos. Fallon’s fast start is clear in television ratings and even more so in social media metrics. (AP Photo/NBC, Lloyd Bishop)
Film star and comedian Marlon Wayans will show both his funny and serious side at a Wednesday appearance in Tempe hosted by Arizona State University.
David Lynch meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers. David Cronenberg does District 9. Stanley Kubrick remakes Tarantula. The new film, Enemy, by Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is very hard to describe (especially without giving too much away), and the studio’s ambiguous summary of the picture – which basically says it’s about a man who sees his identical twin in a movie and then seeks to find him – doesn’t even begin to describe what this film is about or how strange it is.
Our old friend and “wingman”, Goose, is most likely rolling in his grave over Need for Speed, a very bad new movie based the popular racing video game series that swiped its title from the famous line in the film Top Gun. But that footnote in pop culture’s “circle of life” is probably the most amusing aspect of this fleety fiasco.
When I was studying to be a rabbi, I spent several years doing volunteer service work in India, Thailand, El Salvador, Ghana, and many other countries. During that time, I heard many wrenching stories from women who had been the victims of violence. They told me they felt powerless, vulnerable, and scared.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Ben Baldanza, the CEO of Spirit Airlines, leans over his kitchen table, takes another look at the board and plots out his strategy.
ATLANTA — Health officials have begun to predict the end of cigarette smoking in America.
It’s pretty ironic that a comedy called “That Awkward Moment” is radically lacking in awkward moments. The film isn’t without some potentially uncomfortable setups like walking in on two people having sex, realizing you’ve just had sex with a hooker, and showing up to a fancy party in a racy outfit. “That Awkward Moment” never goes all the way with its awkward humor, though. Scenes often feel incomplete, as if the director yelled, “cut,” before getting to the punch line. As a result, the film fails to deliver any genuine awkward humor or humor in general.
Christmas for the Van Horn family wasn’t supposed to turn out the way it did. The plan was for presents opened at home and the newborn, Logan, to make his first visit with Santa Claus. Breathing apparatuses and a prolonged hospital stay had no place on the family’s list of expectations.
Can there be too much of a good thing? Where did that expression come from, anyway? If it's good, isn't more always better?
Eight years ago, my daughter Jasmine asked if she could audition for the Ahwatukee Foothills “Nutcracker” performance. She was new to the world of ballet and dance, but I relented, and she was thrilled to get parts as a Baby Mouse and a Mini Bon Bon. And the next thing I knew, her Saturday soccer games now had conflicts with “The Nutcracker” practice — called “rehearsals,” I was quickly corrected. I kept hearing about how much fun Jasmine was having at these rehearsals, how many new friends she was making, and how she couldn’t wait for “Opening Night.” I didn’t pay too much attention. I just paid for the costumes, bought tickets for a performance, and occasionally picked her up after a rehearsal and raced her to her soccer game.
There is arrogance in sports. And then there is arrogance without cause in sports.
In the 17 years since "Swingers," Vince Vaughn has cultivated the comedic persona of an obnoxious and insensitive boor, so it may come as a surprise to learn that "Delivery Man" reveals a softer side entirely. As David Wozniak, the world's most fertile sperm donor, the star plays someone who's overwhelmed as opposed to merely overwhelming. It's a welcome change, though a significant marketing challenge as well, considering DreamWorks has almost no way of letting audiences know that "Delivery Man" is virtually nothing like a Vince Vaughn movie, but rather a heartfelt celebration of the act of parenthood presented under radically exaggerated circumstances.
Novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald once famously declared “there are no second acts in American lives.” But the writer didn't live long enough to see The Rascals prove him wrong.
When Seton Catholic Preparatory asked Kate McBryan to apply for its Hall of Fame it gave the alumnus the rare opportunity to list her accomplishments.
