Film Review: Jobs

(08/29/13 8:09am)

Ashton Kutcher spent months preparing to play Steve Jobs, successfully mimicking his fruitarian diet and bouncy walk but not much else, in “Jobs.” Jobs is the stereotypical college dropout—barefoot, shaggy-haired and still hanging around campus to sit in on classes for free at the suggestion of a professor who begged him to keep learning. He has no sense of direction, despite a profound, montaged trip to India. Jobs’s only redeeming quality throughout the movie is the passion and commitment he shows toward his innovative ideas.

Duke Entertainment Media and Arts Network Weekend returns for fourth year

(09/04/12 9:20am)

As part of the Duke Arts Festival, Duke Entertainment Media and Arts Network (DEMAN) Weekend returns for its fourth year this fall. Duke alumni who work professionally in arts, media and entertainment will come back to Duke to interact with undergraduates in hopes of providing them with a network of arts-related opportunities after they graduate. The festival showcases student dancers, musicians, actors and poets in different performance spaces on campus, including the new Arts Annex off of Campus Drive. One of the main goals of DEMAN is to expose alumni to undergraduates seriously engaged in the arts on campus.

I don’t think I’ve seen a musical guest on the show so happy to be performing in a while.

There are lots of things to miss about the ’60s—Elvis, the Beatles and a young Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music, to name a few—but there’s plenty to leave in the past. And yet this fall, new shows “Pan Am” and “The Playboy Club” are attempting to mimic the success of “Mad Men,” taking us back to those not-so-good old ways of the ’60s era.
