As the weekend editor here at Crushable, I am not just unapologetically obsessed with pop culture and celebrities.  I am unapologetically obsessed with male, Irish celebrities in particular.  Needless to say, I’ve been counting down the weekends this year because — HUZZAH — St. Patrick’s Day fell on a weekend this year, thus allowing me to revel in my obsession.

St. Patrick’s Day Video: ‘Boston Movie’

St. Patrick's Day Video: 'Boston Movie'

Remember yesterday when I proposed an ensemble romantic comedy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day? Funny Or Die beat me to it, with their new faux-trailer for Boston Movie, a mash-up of every action, drama, and thriller movie set in Boston. OK, so most of the “romance” is substituted with prison brawls and shootouts, but no lie, it’s very, very funny. (These guys love their language, so maybe put in your headphones if you’re watching this at work.) More »

The latter, with Garry Marshall as director, were responsible for 2010′s lukewarm Valentine’s Day, as well as its groan-inducing “sequel” New Year’s Eve, currently filming in New York City. Now movie producers are circling the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as the subject of the next holiday-centric movie. More »

The March of Michael Flatley’s Ego Continues With ‘Lord of the Dance 3D’

The March of Michael Flatley's Ego Continues With 'Lord of the Dance 3D'

Round about the time that I was growing up, the Riverdance phenomenon hit the world like a many-footed Irish storm, and I’ll admit, I got pretty caught up in it. I’ve always had a thing for Celtic music– my mother has recollections of little Toddler Me kicking my feet in my car seat to the rhythm of Celtic Soujourn on NPR– so this is perhaps understandable. I was a little less taken with Michael Flatley – to be honest, he sort of scared me. He got even scarier when he split off from Riverdance to create Lord of the Dance (not to be confused with The Lord of the Rings), a shirtless spectacle driven solely by the force of Flatley’s own ego.
