You have http://blog.bitcomet.com/post/3871396/ to own the place." That has only become possible, adds Wink, "because with the invitation from the Bowl came the permission to 'go crazy.'" "Absolutely. We had no trepidation, " says Hollywood Bowl program manager Brian Grohl. "Anyone who knows Blue Man knows what they're getting into fun, smart entertainment." TIMELINE: Summer's must see concerts When Blue Man asked who in the orchestra might be a game player for http://journals.fotki.com/tyronvhby/my-blog/entry/wqrbfsbbgfsws/ its antics, Grohl offered up concert mistress and violinist Katia Popov, who will be magically transformed into a "slightly cheesy" rocker, and principal guest conductor Thomas Wilkins, who will be turned into a human paintbrush and hoisted high above the stage. Or at least a stunt double will. "There's no question that this event will change the Bowl as much as it might change Blue Man," says Grohl. "And yet they've been incredibly respectful."

Ed Asner: Hollywood Not Criticizing Obama On Syria Because He's 'Black'
Apparently, like many of us, the Hollywood Reporter's Paul Bond was curious about the screaming silence we are hearing from the Hollywood left as our Nobel Peace Prize-winning president pushes America towards a unilateral, pre-emptive war against Syria. Absolutely no one in the Hollywood community has, as of yet, taken it to the streets to speak truth to power. Nothing from Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, Matt Damon, pics of kim kardashian Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, or even Janeane Garofalo. Could it be that rather than being anti-war they are just anti-Bush? Well, according to Hollywood leftist Ed Asner, there are all kinds of excuses for this screaming silence, but among them is this: no one wants to be seen as anti-black should they criticize America's first black president: Asner said the lack of an organized effort against war in Syria is a matter of timing. Bush took months to make the case for war in Iraq, giving the antiwar left plenty of time to prepare a response. "It will be a done deal before Hollywood is mobilized," Asner said.

The role was played by actor Corey Monteith, who died in July from a mixture of heroin and alcohol, according to the British Columbia coroner's office. "Work is the best thing for grief," said Lynch. "So we are working on this episode right now, the tribute to our quarterback, our Corey, who was not only quarterback of the football team, but of the Glee Club and I think it does him great justice." During the ceremony, Lynch posed alongside her new star --and even laid down next to it -- as crowds of fans and photographers snapped her photo. She says the Hollywood honor is one she has dreamed of since moving to Los Angeles more than 20 years ago.

Instead, he has proved himself to be a corporatist, and as long as he's a corporatist, he's not my president," Asner said. "A lot of people have lost hope -- with the betrayals, the NSA spying ... People aren't getting active because 'Who gives a shit?' is essentially the bottom line." Adds Farrell: "I'm frankly deeply disappointed in the president's foreign policy, war-making, his reliance on military rather then diplomatic responses, his use of drones, continued allowance of the Guantanamo prison. He's a disappointment to me and other people I know." As much as http://dishenbeer.livejournal.com/2808.html Obama is loved by Hollywood power-brokers, Asner says he doesn't fear backlash by speaking against the president. "Hollywood can't mobilize for that either," he joked.
