Entertainment News

We have included this entertainment news section of our website just to bring you news about entertainment. Television, movies, mainstream production and post production people, screenwriters, and anything that may be of interest with regard to media will be included. This might involve commercials, video games, CEOs of media companies, pay TV, set-top boxes, satellite, movie reviews, YouTube and the like. In short, this is the area where you will find articles that are fun, light and entertaining. You will also find articles that serve as economic indicators pointing to new media trends. It does not matter whether they are successful or not. It is nice to know what successes others are having to find trends and to stay ahead of the curve.

What you won’t find is celebrity gossip, risque celebrity photos, new bands or Kim Kardashian. That kind of news is best left to TMZ, E! Entertainment and Fox News. We only want to bring you entertainment news that affects lifestyles and forward-thinking. We don’t want to cloud your head with mindless chatter. However, Hollywood is not entirely ruled out. There will be news on blockbuster movies and hit television shows. There may also be social and political news as it affects our industry. Just keep tuned in by visiting the site regularly or just hook up to our RSS feed and always be aware of what is going on in our world of entertainment.

Feel free to leave your comments on anything that is posted here no matter how controversial it may seem. Of course, we want you to leave new or related topics in our forums. If you really read this, let me know. Ha!
