What Should Happen To Prince's Unreleased Music?

What truly sets Prince's estate apart from most deceased musicians is what he left behind: a personal vault of 2000 works of unreleased music. To put it in perspective, there is enough music to release one album every year for the next century. I know what you're thinking: What will happen to all of this music, and will we ever hear it?

Prince: The Tragic Death Of A Strange Genius

In thinking about what it was that made people love him so much, I came to the conclusion that it was because he was completely and utterly himself. He was always authentic to his vision and unafraid to do things exactly his way. He was someone who was truly free.

Alice in Wonderland continues its comeback streak with Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson's audio version of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland via Audible Studios, an Amazon company. Audible says, "It tells the story of the young and imaginative Alice, who grows weary of her storybook, one 'without pictures or conversations,' and follows a hasty hare underground -- to come face to face with a host of strange and fantastic characters."

"I would have loved to have talked to Amy Winehouse. Her music was an inspiration to me. And I remember my parents coming home from seeing her in a club and just raving about her. She came from the same background as me, growing up in North London."

Introducing the November Ticket, a brilliant idea from a collective of artists that decided to do something that seems challenging in an oh so competitive marketplace. Arm and arm, they decided to work together. Sharing resources benefits not only the companies and artists themselves. The audience win as well here.

I Lived a Dream of Africa

In 1989, I flew to see the gorillas in Zaire. I was a determined 25-year-old; I had never flown solo across the world. It was always intended as a three-week window into adventure and nothing more. I needed to fully experience what lay one-dimensional in my university books.

A Fan's Farewell to Jon Stewart

There will be others after Stewart, just like there have been others during Stewart. But it's not enough to be an activist, or to be annoying, or to be loud, or to just only occasionally hit the nail on the head, or whatever. Stewart was often left of someone on the right, often right of someone on the left.

Sunday night's series finale, it's obvious, would have made a much better premiere than the pilot did. It was probably the show's best hour.

Here's A Story I'll Never Get To Tell Robin Williams

Brett Caron | Posted 10.22.2014 | Canada

I have my own ideas about what it means to control your own life and the right a person should have to end that life if they choose. But I'm not writing this to spout my opinion on suicide. I'm writing this to tell a story I'll never have the chance to tell Robin Williams, as if I would've had a chance of ever meeting the man.

Don't Call Robin Williams' Death a Waste

Elizabeth Hawksworth | Posted 10.12.2014 | Canada Living
Elizabeth Hawksworth

Suicide isn't "giving up" or "giving in." Suicide is a terrible decision made by someone whose pain is so great that they can no longer hold it, and feel they have no other option in life but to end it. It's a decision you can't take back, and a decision that will affect your friend and family forever. It is not taken lightly. For someone looking in, it does seem like a waste -- especially in the case of Robin Williams, who was a brilliantly funny man and a talented actor. But imagine, if you will, feeling so desperate, so desolate, so incredibly sad and hurt that you honestly cannot see a way out. Williams did things in his life that touched people to their core. It is a sad, sad loss, but it is not a waste.

No matter how it winds up, Ghostbusters 3 is not, and was never going to, please everyone. I hope this doesn't come as a surprise. So whether the upcoming 21st century adventure with proton packs is a blockbuster or just destined to become 'that other one,' I'll have mine and you can have yours.

When it all boils down, Last Gang Records was started in one of the most tumultuous eras of the music industry. It has thrived in the ten years since. Most people would say that the worst is over, but the entertainment industry will continue to evolve with streaming technology and subsequent advancements. But I'm not too worried for them.

I felt sick to my stomach standing at a brick factory in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. These kids have traded in their childhoods, working seven-day weeks so they can continue to stay alive. Just a stone's throw away was a new luxury housing development. Were these bricks used to build it?

The Unlikely Feminism of Mindy Kaling

It's exciting to be living in an era of television where we see more and more clever women gracing our TV screens -- especially ones who look and act like us. But at the same time, there seems to be a growing attack on femininity in the name of progress. And that's why Mindy Kaling's brand of feminism is becoming increasingly important.

Maybe Romeo and Juliet Can Work It Out

Directed by Thomas Bertlesen, the film's intense 25-minute journey takes you from idealistic happily-ever-after to anxious, desperate climax. Despite all the space in the desert, the lovers are trapped in their own failed dreams. That is the most realistic part of this movie -- and a fitting end to Shakespeare's most famous tragedy.

I Really Miss Walter White and His 2004 Pontiac Aztek

Last Sunday, I spent Jesus's apparent day -- for the first time in nine weeks -- without Breaking Bad. Without Walter White or any of his tics, tendencies, or tacky style. Unlike most who watched Bad, I liked Walter White all the way. I liked him at the beginning, I liked him at the end, and I liked him at his worst.

The question of how cities regulate night-time behaviour is a very old one, but it has emerged as the focus of innovative thinking in the last two decades. The conflict between a growing market of young people demanding late-night entertainment and gentrified homeowners complaining about noise is being handled in various ways across the country.
