  • 887805_56493274.jpg Slate: The 10 best movies of 2012

    For the second year in a row, there weren't that many movies jostling behind the velvet rope to get onto my 10-best list. Still, when it came down to distilling a whole year's worth of viewing into just 10 titles, I found with relief that it was impossible to remain stingy with my accolades: There were enough films that genuinely thrilled me this year to fill up a list, and then some.

    There are plenty of people who loathe Christmas music or tire of it quickly, and it can be easy to see why: Every year brings fruitless attempts to introduce a new song into the canon or put a new spin on a holiday classic, and that can be a drag.

  • MEXICO OPERA182.jpg Opera takes hold in Mexico's dangerous cities

    In high times and low, Mexicans turn to their music. To love, to lament, there's Mexican music for every occasion: poetic ballads, bouncy polkas, rodeo rancheras, plus goth rock, marimba, Mexican metal, you name it.

  • DEGENERES18.jpg DeGeneres receives Mark Twain prize for American humor

    It's hard to remember now, but about a dozen years ago, Ellen DeGeneres was dead in the water.
    The nice girl from New Orleans with the sunny disposition and the squeaky-clean comedy act had been a star with her own sitcom, "Ellen."

  • Study: Politically outspoken celebrities will see likability ratings fall


    In this presidential election season, when celebrities endorse candidates while talking to empty chairs, engage in political debates on Twitter and encourage the rest of us to vote via cleverly edited YouTube clips, a new university study suggests that, perhaps, they might all be better off keeping their mouths shut.
