This summer, we’re going to have a film that has never ventured to the life of Eighth Grade. A grade in which most of us leave middle school/junior high and start our life of high school. Today in our second part of EMExclusives, we have two of the young stars from the movie. Ladies and gents, I bring to you Elsie Fisher who plays Kayla Day, an eighth grader in her final week of middle school and Emily Robinson who plays Olivia, a high school senior who Kayla shadows for one day.
Today in our first of two-part series of EMExclusives, we are gearing up for the upcoming film Eighth Grade. Kayla (Elsie Fisher) is a young lady who must endure the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through her last week of middle school — and the end of one disastrous year of eighth grade. For our first interview, I recently sat down with comedian turned first-time director Bo Burnham.
I recently had the opportunity to interview recording artist Ryan Calhoun about his album “The Heaven Switch”. It was fascinating to learn about him and the work that went into creating The Heaven Switch. Check out the interview after the jump:

Getting Off is the sexy new noir novel by Lawrence Block writing as Jill Emerson. Its main character is Katherine Anne ‘Kit’ Tolliver, who hasn’t used that name since high school – and for good reason. She loves sex, but she may love murder more!
Last week I had the honor and privilege to participate in a one-on-one phone interview with actress and upcoming pop/dance music artist Christina Fulton. Here’s a brief bio on Christina Fulton before we get to the interview:

‘My name’s Markowski. I carry a badge.
‘Also a crucifix, some wooden stakes, a big vial of holy water, and a 9mm Beretta loaded with silver bullets…’
Everywhere you look on the literary landscape you can see vampires, zombies, trolls and many other creatures of the paranormal persuasion. Well, except for the werewolf. Now, British author Glen Duncan has, for reasons unknown, decided that the world needs a werewolf novel. Duncan, deemed ‘one of Britain’s best young authors,’ by The Times Literary Supplement [London], does give The Last Werewolf’ literary flair, but he sticks to the age old conventions of the genre and pokes holes in them from within.
When a TV series has a dedicated following – especially a genre show – then there’s a good chance it will spawn tie-in novels. Recent examples include USA’s burn Notice and Syfy’s Eureka. Now comes the first Warehouse 13 novel, A Touch of Fever by Greg Cox – and it is a perfect example of how to do a TV tie-in novel.
I love Cirque Du Soleil. When people ask me what the heck the show is all about, I simply describe it as “The Circus for Pretentious People.” I mean there’s clowns, jugglers, high rope acts, and all the trappings of a Circus, but done as only Cirque Du Soleil can do it. How else do you describe the almost indescribable or at the very least one of the most surreal experiences you are likely to have in your lifetime. The thing that makes Cirque shows so unique and different is the fact that every touring production or home production (like the Vegas shows) has its own style or theme. It’s almost like watching a Prince concert, you just never know what you are going to get.
What would you do if you had the chance to become a small part of “history?” Or at least try and right the wrongs of the past? In The Rightful Heirs Tom Schuyler he blends the past with the present in an intriguing premise that has a Pilot Instructor stumbling upon a conspiracy of men who are seeking a multimillion-dollar fortune. As the mystery deepens, our hero Jim Riley gets help from an older cold war Spy named Rolly Hunter and a mysterious woman named Mary Reison who we don’t know whether she’s friend, enemy or if she has her own agenda. The book answers the question what would $4 million in Gold, Bonds, Securities deposited in 24 Swiss Bank Accounts 70 years ago be worth today.
The story is about six Jewish Industrialist at the beginning of WWII who takes steps to try and protect their family fortune. At the time the writing was on the wall, but the men still held out hope that things wouldn’t get as bad as it would eventually become. One of the six men convinced the others to let an Italian friend secure their money in the hopes of using it to rebuild Italy after the war ended. None of them knew what was in store for them. Seventy years later one of their last descendents entrusts a mysterious book to Jim.
