David O. Russell is a very funny man.
That's been easy to forget lately. The last time it feels like he made a full-on comedy was "I Heart Huckabees," and I still remember walking out of the first screening of the film, big smile on my face, only to run smack dab into a cluster of journalists all angrily venting about the film. They didn't just dislike it, they were furious at having seen it. One in particular was red-faced about it, and when I tried to walk by, they tried to rope me into agreeing with them about how terrible it was.
"I really liked it," I said, and it was as if I told them that their mothers never really loved them. They recoiled from me. It only made me love the film more, and it certainly wasn't the first time liking a David O. Russell film made people seem irritated or creeped out. "Spanking The Monkey" did exactly what it set out to do at a time when people hadn't been conditioned by an entire culture of squirm-based comedy, and "Flirting With Disaster" felt like he just found a slightly less overt way to push buttons. "Three Kings" was a near-perfect distillation of his voice in a mainstream package, a movie that managed to be political and wicked funny and tense and moving all at the same time.

Man, do Melinda and I have all the luck or what? We got yet another amazing guest to sit down with us a few weeks ago (or really, sit down with Melinda, as I was phoning in from Las Vegas). Phil Collen, superstar guitarist for Def Leppard and Manraze (his band with Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols and Simon Laffy of Collens Girl), had a friendly chat with us which was ridiculous, raucous fun. We discussed Manraze's new EP, "I Surrender," Def Leppard's next album, his in-the-works autobiography, his amazing abs, veganism and, yes, those infamous Def Leppard backstage passes.
Warning: Phil's team just happened to pass along the image below, as it was something we discussed during the podcast. Alas, it may not be suitable for your workplace. You're welcome. Here's the rundown:
"Mob City," the new TNT miniseries(*) about cops and crooks in '40s Los Angeles, actually begins a couple of decades earlier and nearly 3000 miles away. We open in New York in 1925, as a gang takes place involving violins, a baby carriage, Tommy guns and dynamite. The victims dance like marionettes as the bullets tear into them, all the action being presented in slow-motion so we don't miss a single detail or spurting of blood.
