Tony Shalhoub Recovers From Coronavirus

Tony Shalhoub reprised his famed Monk character during the premiere of Peacock’s At-Home Variety Show on Monday. While the return of Adrian Monk was certainly a welcome sight, Shalhoub also used the segment to share some harrowing news: He’s spent the last few weeks in quarantine battling COVID-19. The revelation came later in the Variety Show episode, following Shalhoub’s brief turn as the obsessive-compulsive Detective Monk, who unsurprisingly has been passing his pandemic time religiously cleaning every inch of his house. Out of character and speaking candidly to the camera, the 66-year-old actor confirmed that he and his wife had tested positive for coronavirus, but were now in recovery. “I hope you’re all being careful and following the protocol. We really are all ...

Texas Rangers Announce Concert in Your Car Series in Stadium Parking Lot

At least someone is getting creative. In order to comply with Texas’ social gathering policy, the Texas Rangers will be hosting a concert series at their stadium in Arlington, but with a twist. All attendees will need to be in their cars to comply with CDC and Texas state regulations. Here’s how the baseball team describe the event: Concert in Your Car is a concert series taking place in Tundra Lot B just North of Globe Life Field, featuring nationally recognized recording artists. The event is designed to give music fans the live show experience, while still maintaining social distancing. Think concert meets drive-in movie. Fair enough. So far, artists on the bill include Texas favorite Pat Green (performing on 6/6), Eli Green Band (6/4), Whiskey Meyers (6/5) and Josh Abbott and Kevin Fow...

Tame Impala Gives a Trippy Performance of “Is It True” on Colbert: Stream

On Monday evening, Tame Impala played a special quarantine rendition of “Is It True” for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.  The performance of The Slow Rush cut was suitably psychedelic, but it also revealed some troubling tendencies in the band. The singer was almost late, the guitarist kept walking off-stage, and did they really need to hide the bass player all the way at the back? Of course, that’s Kevin Parker in all three roles, using the magic of video editing to express his status as a one-man band. While other artists have relied on pre-taped bathroom recordings to give the illusion of a live performance, Parker acknowledged the artifice, utilizing it to create a simple but thrilling spectacle. Check out “Is It True” below. Earlier this month, Tame Impala participated i...

Obamagate: Trump’s Latest Attempt To Smear President Barack Obama Explained

Source: WENN.com / WENN President Donald Trump has spent a portion of his presidency seemingly intent on discrediting the legacy of President Barack Obama while adopting debunked theories crafted to tear down his predecessor. This past weekend, the former business mogul and reality television star took aim at Obama during an especially intense tweetstorm accusing his predecessor over a so-called criminal act framed as “Obamagate.” To bring things into focus as best we can, Last Friday (May 9) Yahoo! News exclusively obtained a leaked private web call Obama held with members of the Obama Alumni Association. In the call, Obama said, “The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn.” He added, “And the ...
