    Obama: And when we talk about deficits, if we're adding to our deficit for tax cuts for folks who don't need them and we're cutting investments in research and science that will create the next Apple, create the next new innovation that will sell products around the world, we will lose that race. If we're not training engineers to make sure that they are equipped here in this country, then companies won't come here. Those investments are what's going to help to make sure that we continue to lead this world economy not just next year, but 10 years from...

  • Harris: Iron Maiden gone in 10 years

    10/16/2012 4:12:54 AM PDT · by My Favorite Headache · 33 replies
    Iron Maiden mainman Steve Harris thinks his band may have give more years left in them – but they’ll be gone within ten. His comments come just days after Rush admitted they were aware they’re likely to retire in the foreseeable future. And Harris reveals he has doubts about whether to take his solo album British Lion on the club tour he’d previously said he was thinking about. Maiden released their fifteenth studio album, The Final Frontier, in 2010. That led to speculation the band was winding down, based on comments Harris had made years earlier saying they’d make fifteen...

The brothers took to Twitter Tuesday to tell fans the film was still in the works, the script is almost done, and it has a title: Dumb and Dumber To. Read more after the jump.Here’s the original...

The prison is crawling with walkers, forcing them to go on a ruthless killing mission to secure the perimeter. And you know what that means - a series of zombie kills fashioned with the kind of special effects George A. Romero could only dream of back in 1968. The monotonous killings may...

His death was confirmed by his son, Shiloh Greaves. “Take a Letter, Maria,” which Mr. Greaves wrote, is about a hard-working man who dictates a “Dear Jane” letter to his secretary after coming home to find his wife “in the arms of another man.” He sings, more in acceptance than in anger: “So take a letter, Maria, address it to my wife/Say I won’t be coming home, gonna start a...

But one top Sony executive has finally acknowledged that fact publicly. Speaking to, Fergal Gara, Sony Computer Entertainment's UK chief, said "consumers decide how relevant (3D) is. It's fair to say consumers have decided it's not huge important at this time." The Associated Press reported this month that the number of 3D viewers in the U.S. is so small that Nielsen is unable to effectively measure them. The ratings service says the number is likely around...

    Loving opera is such a simple thing. And yet the conventional wisdom seems to strive to make it complicated. Opera, and classical music, are elitist and arcane: This view is held both by people who don’t care for them, and by many of those who do. How many fans have you heard using words like “passaggio,” “portamento,” “tessitura,” as if to signal their insider knowledge? Even an innocuous mention of “Beethoven’s Op. 111,” which seems like a perfectly reasonable way to refer to that composer’s final piano sonata, earned me a snort of suppressed laughter from a non-specialist friend the...
