Film Review: I Saw the Light

November 20 / 16 “You got to have smelt a lot of mule manure before you can sing like a hillbilly.” Hank Williams What word do I use to describe Hank Williams? A musical genius? A true songwriter? Lost soul? well, you could say all three. I Saw the Light is not just another biopic, but this biopic has failed in many ways than one. First I will say this, Tom Hiddleston was a great treat to see. An Englishmen playing a country crooner was a surprise. Williams’s grandson Hank III wasn’t too pleased, but who really cares. I wish he could give Hiddleston the credit for the hard work to portray such a legend in country music and what a legend. Not only did the film did touch about William’s as a great performer, but it also touched on his demons. His spinal condition called Spina bifida, caused him lifelong pain, and the fact that this was one of the cause for his abuse of drugs and alcohol didn’t make it any easier. Hiddleston’s work …

Shadow Spotlight: Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen

November 14 / 16 Hello. Lots of things to cover for this week, so let’s begin with today’s Shadow Spotlight on Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. From the time they were babies, the lives of Mary Kate and Ashley were always in the public eye. They grew up before our eyes as Michelle Tanner in the adorable sitcom Full House. Then came Dualstar, their limited liability company, which produced films, tv shows, and other products.     These days the ladies are now known as fashion businesswomen and icons. With their fashion lines Elizabeth & James and The Row, Mary Kate and Ashley have paved their own path away from the acting world and into the world of fashion. Recently they just opened their first boutique at The Grove in their native Los Angeles. Not only that, but the twins celebrated another milestone, turning 30. Yep, it’s hard to believe, but Mary Kate and Ashley are now 30 and their successful career in fashion is just another turning point. How would you describe their line? …
