  • The end of the world: R.E.M. calling it quits--video extra

    NEW YORK (AP) — R.I.P. to R.E.M.

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group announced on its website Wednesday that it has "decided to call it a day as a band."

    "A wise man once said — 'the skill in attending a party is knowing when it's time to leave.' We built something extraordinary together. We did this thing. And now we're going to walk away from it," frontman Michael Stipe said in a statement on the website.

    "I hope our fans realize this wasn't an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way."

  • Emmycast with Jane Lynch presiding was a winner

    Even if your favorite nominee got snubbed, Sunday's Emmycast could have been the most satisfying in memory.

    It was funny, bright and skillfully hosted by "Glee" star Jane Lynch.

    It moved at a brisk clip, free of the usual stumbles and lulls, and, even better, it flowed almost seamlessly, a next-to-impossible feat for any awards show.

  • Novel's two storylines never seem to succeed

    Anyone looking for reading material guaranteed to put them to sleep at night should pick up “My God, What Have We Done?” by Susan V. Weiss (Fomite Press, 2011).
    The novel is an awkward blend of two storylines, one set in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project and the other following the married life of a couple identified simply as Pauline and Clifford.
    Pauline — who narrates the Pauline/Clifford storyline — is one of the most monotonous characters ever written. Pauline vacillates about her marriage from the time of her engagement through the end of the novel, and seems incapable of taking any action that would make her life more fulfilling.
