Anyone who knows me also knows I’m an outrageously big in-car singer. So, naturally, Carpool Karaoke is one of my favorite things on Earth (I mean, just look at my RIYL below). James Corden has ingeniously transformed an every day frustration for many — especially here in LA — into a hilarious musical adventure I always look forward to watching.

I can think of very few people who perform with the same astounding energy as Bruno Mars. Beginning his performance of “24K Magic” in a judge’s chair and backed by three other performers, he delivered the song with incredible dynamism during this week’s broadcast of The Voice.

After years of working at Universal Studios, whose newest addition, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, has brought fans flocking from around the country, I’ve come to realize one important truth: most people know what house of the famed four they call home. I learned I belong to Hufflepuff, which I describe as those who are “loyal, friendly, and honest,” or as my friend says, “Yeah, that’s why they’re usually stoners, because they love to share!”

When Jasper from The Simpsons unthaws from days being stuck in the Kwik-E-Mart freezer thinking he’s been cryogenically frozen, he discovers the sugary bread snack Moon Pie and utters, “What a time to be alive.” The internet has now plastered that saying everywhere as a meme, but really, that concept goes deep in 2016, a year that saw social unrest, political wrestling matches, and an obnoxious number of hard-hitting deaths in the entertainment world.

LAmb Sessions: Adam Friedman

Beachy vibes just in time for winter

Lex Voight

Adam Friedman is irrepressible. The singer-songwriter brought his summery tunes and tight songwriting chops to LAmb Sessions, along with a near incessant stream of well-meaning, self-effacing, and aware jokes. He managed to turn everything into a song. Nothing from the (then a joke, now a horrible reality) candidacy of Donald Trump to his antics on tour to his friend and PR person were safe from having an incredibly catchy song being spontaneously created satirizing them.

Common recently released his excellent 11th album, Black America Again, and it’s an extremely timely soundtrack to the turbulent times that we as a country find ourselves navigating (it’s no coincidence that the album was released right around our presidential election).
