Beck by Andrew Youssef

In 1974, American wordsmith David Mamet wrote a play called “Sexual Perversion in Chicago“. In 1986, that play got the Hollywood treatment, and was turned into a hip dramedy about the complexities of sexual relationships called, “About Last Night…”. In 1971, brilliantly horny French dude Serge Gainsbourg wrote a sleazy and stunningly brilliant concept album called, “Le Histoire de Melody Nelson.” Last night a marvelous cast of marvelously …

She and Him’s Zooey Deschanel leaving no doubt that she is not an actress moonlighting as a singer. She’s a singer! The Bowl was near silent and she had us all eating out of her hand. It was incredible. …
