Hear Cicadas Buzzing on New Kentucky Phone Hotline

Have you seen cicadas, their shells everywhere? I haven't seen a single one yet; but to be honest, I've been forgetting to look. As for their familiar buzzing, I've only heard them twice, and both times I was driving through Ohio County. I even have two huge trees behind my apartment, no shells. What gives?

How Silvertein’s Shane Told Learned to Scream

Silverstein vocalist Shane Told is the latest guest on Loudwire's 'How I Learned to Scream' video series, recollecting his journey in figuring out the extreme vocal technique. As is the case with most vocalists who execute any sort of screaming vocal (growls, barks, gutturals, roars, pig squeals, and, yes, plain ol' screaming), this didn't exactly come naturally. Mistakes were made, lessons were learned and parents usually try to stand back and be supportive while quietly wondering what on earth their kid is up to.

Super Saturday Returns to Evansville Museum With Cool Cars, Dinosaurs, Yoga and More

It is so exciting, so refreshing, so encouraging to have a bunch of live, in-person events to write about these days. Don't get me wrong, all of the virtual events in 2020 were great for what we had to work with - who knows where our non-profits would be without them - but it felt like I was saying the same thing for each event. I guess I kind of was - it's tough to get super creative when you're limited to an online-only event. This event at the Evansville Museum is not tough to write about at all - there is so much going on, it pretty much writes itself.

‘WandaVision’ Concept Art Shows Development of the Hex

New WandaVision concept art reveals the early ideas the creative team had for the show’s “Hex.” For those who need a refresher, the Hex was a sweeping forcefield created by Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) that encompassed the entire town of Westview, New Jersey. Inside the Hex was a completely fabricated suburban reality, complete with white picket fences and a charming town square. Now, members of WandaVision’s pre-production crew have begun sharing images of how the Hex was developed for the Disney+ series.

Evansville’s Sunset Skatepark Another Step Closer to Reality After Huge Donation

If you haven't been following along, Evansville is in the process of getting a new all concrete skatepark. This skatepark will be available for everyone of all ages to enjoy, and the community will be able to enjoy it free of charge. The skatepark will also have an awesome downtown location. Sunset Skatepark will be built along the Evansville Riverfront within Evansville's Promise Zone. It will connect Mickey's Kingdom playground to the new EWSU Pump Station Project. I'm not sure there's a more perfect location for a skatepark in Evansville.

Drive-In Movie Nights Coming To Showplace North AND East In Evansville

Showplace Cinemas is bringing more drive-in-style movies to Evansville's North and East side. Recently, Showplace Cinemas took to social media to ask fans if they would love to see outdoor movies at one of their locations. The reason behind this is because a company called Strong Technical Services announced they were giving away 10 BrightNight drive-in weekend rental packages, including a Preview trailer and Northview 40-ft inflatable screen, to participating theaters in a random contest drawing. So Showplace shared this post a few times on social media, and as it turns out, they were selected to be one of the theaters that won.

Paul Rudd Pranks Conan With His ‘Mac and Me’ Clip For the Final Time

For almost 20 years, every single time Paul Rudd has appeared on Conan O’Brien’s various talk shows, he has pranked the host and the audience. Rudd would set up a clip from whatever movie or TV show he was there to promote, but when they’d cut to the clip, he’d instead show the same scene from the infamous E.T. ripoff Mac and Me. Sometimes he’d show the clip multiple times in a single appearance. It’s been going on like this for literally decades, across three different talk shows, first Late Night With Conan O’Brien, then The Tonight Show, and finally his current Conan series on TBS.

Julie Delpy Said No to a Fourth ‘Before’ Movie With Richard Linklater

Nine years pass between each of Richard Linklater’s Before movies, the unique film franchise chronicling decades in the lives of Jesse, played by Ethan Hawke, and Celine, played by Julie Delpy. They met in 1995’s Before Sunrise, reconnected in 2004’s Before Sunset, and then were last seen in 2013’s Before Midnight, where they were shown as parents contemplating the possible end of their relationship. If Linklater, Hawke, and Delpy maintained that schedule, there would be a new Before coming in 2022 — sometime next year.
