True Crime Corner: Jonestown

rsz_jim_jones_in_front_of_the_international_hotel

Sometimes things happen which both fascinate and terrify. While I heard about the horror that took place at Jonestown, it wasn’t until I listened to the heart wrenching audio recording of the tragedy did I really look into the events of November 18, 1978. In this edition of True Crime Corner – what befell the congregants of the Peoples Temple, led by the charismatic pastor Jim Jones?

Leiki looks at the good and the bad of last night’s Emmy Awards

emmys-2015I love all awards show. That’s clear to anyone who knows me and anyone who has read this blog. The Oscars are the glamourous cream of the crop. Best of the best. But the Emmy’s feel like a reunion with all the friends who come into your living room each day. Hello old friends! It’s a fun game to see who wins, but to me it just seems like a fantastic party. The more the merrier. Where were you, Bill Murray, that you couldn’t accept your award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Movie or Miniseries? You would make a great party greater.

jonboggled
Not a whole lot of mercy to be had as our season finale of “Game of Thrones” proves George R.R. Martin’s story framework still rules, major (and I mean major) characters fall, and ten million teenage girls cry themselves to sleep.  Let’s discuss, after the break.

This Sunday, July 20, Lifetime debuts a daring new series about a world where mankind is slowly going extinct, because women have become infertile – it’s called “The Lottery.” In this shadowy near future world, one hundred embryos have been created, and the decision has to be made as to who will carry them, and thus the suspenseful drama begins.

Biff Bam Pop! had the opportunity to speak with one of the stars of “The Lottery,” Toronto actor David Alpay. Check out our interview with David after the jump.

American Horror Story: Coven S03 E11: Protect the Coven

Zoe & Kyle

Last week’s episode was definitely a magical delight with the special appearance of the White Witch herself, Stevie Nicks. But while Stevie treated us to a serving, although rather small, sampling of her songs, Madison, Fiona and Marie Laveau were serving up their own songs of betrayal and murder. The witches have a war on their hands with the Delphi Corporation. Nan is dead and Misty is stuck in the grave? What happens next? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Guest Blogger Leiki – A Take On The Emmys

Biff Bam Pop reader and occasional contributor Leiki caught Sunday nights Emmy Awards from Australia, where she’s currently working on a new film. Here’s her take on television’s most glamorous night…or is it?
Award shows are pretty similar to each other.  The Oscars are the biggest, and the Globes have an open bar, but otherwise, there’s a lot of the same stuff.  Same red carpet questions, same people, same speeches.  Critics of award shows think they should be spectacular and every review has this underwhelmed meh to it, but it’s designed to give out a large number of awards.  There’s less room for funny in that task than you might think.  At the Emmys Sunday night, when the last speech was played off with music, even host Jimmy Kimmel sputtered at the crowd’s negative reaction, “you guys want to stay for another hour?”  But the funny that does happen, sticks out.  More on this in a moment.
