As with most festivals, the second day of III Points brought a much larger crowd. Still, thanks to its boutique nature, the festival grounds never felt overwhelmed with people.However, for those hoping to take part in experiences such as the Skate Space or the decommissioned Gravitron ride with a pop-up Red Bull bar inside, the wait times were long. But kudos to the attendees, who appeared to leave their frustration and anger at home.Continue ReadingThe crowds also showed plenty of love to Saturday's performers, including SZA and James Blake, whose R&B and soulful sounds created a chilled-out atmosphere at the main stage. Inside, Yaeji packed the Main Frame stage area for an amazing Miami debut. Here's a look at the highlights from day two.Haute Tension. About five seconds into playing its self-titled theme song — the band's second tune of the night — Haute Tension guitarist Alexandre Merbouti fell right off the Sector 3 stage and onto his back, barely … [Read more...] about III Points 2019: SZA, James Blake, John Maus, and Yaeji Kept the Vibes Going Day Two
By SAM ANDERSON OCT. 4, 2018 NBC gave Michael Schur total freedom. So the TV impresario made a sitcom that’s also a profound work of philosophy. NBC gave Michael Schur total freedom. So the TV impresario made a sitcom that’s also a profound work of philosophy. By SAM ANDERSON OCT. 4, 2018 How do hands move in heaven? Ted Danson knows. Watch him in “The Good Place,” NBC’s circle-squaring philosophical sitcom about life, death, good, evil, redemption and frozen yogurt. As Danson speaks, his hands flutter and hover in front of him like a pair of trained birds. They poke and swirl, pinch and twist. They snap suddenly ahead to accent a word as if they’re plucking a feather from a passing breeze. Danson is tall and slim — he was a basketball star growing up — and his hands are expressively large. He can move them, when he needs to, with the long-fingered languor of Michelangelo’s God reaching out to touch Adam. On the … [Read more...] about What Makes ‘The Good Place’ so Good?
Netflix recently added the second season of NBC’s “The Good Place” to its library of shows, and fans everywhere are excited to finally be able to binge it. From the same executive producer of the shows “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Master of None,” this feel-good (or feel-bad) comedy is accented with a star-studded cast and is rich in comedic gold. “The Good Place” is the winner of the 2016 Critics’ Choice Television Award for “Most Exciting New Series” as well as a two-time Primetime Emmy Award Nominee. Yet what makes the show so enjoyable is the simple message it carries: you can be a good person or you can be a bad one, but either way, you’re going to face consequences. The main character, Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), dies. When she wakes up, she realizes she’s in a place called “The Good Place,” which is an equivalent to heaven, more or less. The … [Read more...] about To Binge or Not To Binge Episode 28: “The Good Place”
William Jackson Harper as Chidi, Jameela Jamil as Tahani, Kristen Bell as Eleanor and Manny Jacinto as Jason in The Good Place. Colleen Hayes/NBC Given the reputation The Good Place has already earned, it feels weird to argue this show is somehow underrated. And yet, it is. The popular, high-concept sitcom from Michael Schur is armed to the teeth with incredible writers like Megan Amram, Jen Statsky, Joe Mande, Matt Murray, Alan Yang and so many more. It’s thoughtful, hilarious, brazen and basically the pinnacle of what this form of TV can offer. Even the conceit is brilliant: a terrible person accidentally gets into heaven and hijinks ensue. But that’s just the starting off point; this is a show that evolves into something so much more—a perfect way to explore the endless permutations of human nature and morality.Now, if you’ve heard all these good things and somehow been putting it off, get caught up before it returns on September 27. The entire show is on … [Read more...] about The Ultimate Lesson of ‘The Good Place’: Change Is REALLY Hard
