Scenes are either framed as if they are based on a description, or are shot with so many cuts that they feel like flashes of short sentences. There are also a lot of closeups of MacDougal who shines even though he is standing alongside big stars such as Weaver – who surprised me with a passable English accent – as well as Neeson, Kebbell, and Jones. Whether you like the movie or not will hinge on how relatable the characters feel to you. For example, Conor can come off as a brat full of anger one minute and the next, as a child coping with sadness that is heavy beyond his years to bear. For fans of this children fantasy book-turned-movie, A Monster Calls hits all the familiar notes – like the same four-chord progression that makes up a pop song. As the credit rolls, I feel this would have been better left as a book for children and young adults to understand the realities of life through reading its story. Watch the trailer here :

It also has features you won't find in all players, like a sleep timer which will turn the music off after a set period and a ringtone cutter, allowing you to select the exact point in a song that you want as a ringtone. But Pi Music Player has the basics covered well too, with an equalizer, several different ways to sort and view your music, multiple themes and easy-to-build playlists. You're not likely to compose a masterpiece with Music Maker Jam , but if you want to get started in music creation it's a simple, approachable tool and even if you're already an expert it's fun to fiddle around with. There's less to it than something like Caustic 3 , but that means you can learn the basics and start making music that actually sounds good in a matter of minutes, by combining up to eight samples and looping and tweaking them until you're happy. There are only a few screens you need to worry about and everything is laid out intuitively in a manner that doesn't feel cluttered on a smartphone screen, plus there's a short tutorial to get you started.

(Turn on English captions in the video.) If you understand the pain of having to face the firing range of your relatives' questions on Chinese New Year, you're going to appreciate this impressive performance by Shanghai's Rainbow Chamber Singers. Titled What I Do Is For Your Own Good The Spring Festival Survival Kit (), the song describes somewhat perfectly the woes of average Chinese millennials heading home for the festive period and getting nagged at about their salaries, weight and single status. "Do you want to come work at my company? / You should lose some weight. Don't eat dinner tonight. / How much is your salary? / Why don't you quit your Bohemian lifestyle?" the singers chorus at each other. Read more...

It's the governments that pit us against each other. The positive thing is, apparently Putin and Trump have a nice relationship. I hope it's for real. Trump's open admiration of Putin has created expectations of improved relations between Washington and Moscow. Trump has not yet articulated a clear policy on Russia, and some of his Cabinet nominees have voiced decidedly hawkish stances. In turn, Putin has expressed hope that common sense will prevail and Russia and the United States will be able to normalize relations once Trump takes office Friday. The Thursday night event at Arbat 13 club was the first of at least two private parties scheduled in Moscow to celebrate Trump's passage from president-elect to commander in chief. Willi Tokarev, 82, a singer who emigrated to the U.S. in the mid-1970s and soon became a music legend, topped the entertainment bill with his song Trumplissimo America! Trump, Trump symbol of America.

A provocative tweet here, a comment there, an applause line in a speech over here, a subordinate disagreeing or "clarifyinging" over there and there and there. You know the drill by now. Dealing with that is like shadowboxing with a will o' the wisp. Where did things get off track? Well, the tabloidization of the political and media cultures is as good a place as any to start. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young satirized it early on with ' American Dream, ' title song of a 1988 concept album that was to have been a hopeful look at the state of America. But the project curdled in the harsh light of reality. It was CSNY's last platinum album. Trump is a case-hardened product of the tabloid culture. In part, this is Trump's particular genius as an ultimate product of our present media era. And in part it's Trump's psychological and intellectual deficiency.

This started out tonight being a small little concert, and then we had the idea, ‘Maybe we’ll do it in front of the Lincoln Memorial,’” Trump said. “I dont know if it’s ever been done before, but if it has, very seldom. And the people came by the thousands and the thousands, and here we are tonight, all the way back.” Trump arrived at the Lincoln Memorial with much fanfare, drawing chants of “Trump!” from the thousands of supporters before The Frontmen of CountryTim Rushlow, Larry Stewart and Richie McDonaldperformed a medley of their greatest hits, including Trump’s campaign song, “God Bless the USA,” with Lee Greenwood.

The voice of Mick Jagger boomed across the Washington Mall as Donald Trump made his grand entrance at the inaugural concert. From the 1965 recording, of course. Of course the Rolling Stones aren't performing. "There's been so many girls that I've known. I've made so many cry, and still I wonder why," the song goes. "Here comes a little girl, I see her walking down the street. She's all by herself, I try to knock her off her feet." And yes, he absolutely has made so many girls cry. What an apt song choice.
