Steve Horowitz: This song and video give one a warm feeling inside. Lambert’s friendliness extends to all: young, old, different races, the opposite sex, etc. A beauty shop treatment and a cold drink make one feel good. It’s cheap therapy! Who could argue with that. Lambert uses bouncy musical rhythms, no heavy statements and a couple of sly winks about her bad reputation to show that life itself is worthwhile if one can just kick back and enjoy it with a couple of like-minded friends. [8/10]

A common complaint among Supernatural’s fans is that the show’s actors don’t get the recognition that they deserve. After all, shouldn’t actors who can effortlessly go from action scenes to comedy, then handle serious drama, and believably deal with this show’s often ridiculous plotlines, be celebrated somewhere other than the Teen Choice Awards? One could say that the show is ignored because of mass competition or media bias against its network, but one could also argue that, in recent years, Supernatural hasn’t given its actors enough material to really show off their talent.

Elder statesman Jean Gabin exudes his distinctive weary, grizzled authority as Vittorio Malanese, the patriarch of a family whose criminal activities are somehow too careful and clean to get them caught. It’s implied that they don’t like to kill anybody, and it’s not entirely clear what they do besides sell legitimate pinball machines. Apparently, they’re not on police radar.

Moby and the Void Pacific Choir have a new single just in time for Valentine’s Day. “A Simple Love” is Moby’s ode to the love of animals and the desire to protect and care for them. “A Simple Love” is a catchy, rousing song that owes a great debt to early ‘80s British new wave.
