The Wolverine Will Claw Its Way To The Top


White House Losers Wolverine

The message of the box office to studios this summer has been: if you're going to put more than $100 million into a movie, your safest bet is to put it into a superhero flick. While a number of other mega-budget films, including After Earth, The Lone Ranger, White House Down, and R.I.P.D. have turned out to be mega-Losers this summer, superhero flicks such as Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel have soared. They are expected to be joined this weekend by The Wolverine, which box-office pundits figure will open with around $70-75 million. That's somewhat less than what the original X-Men Origins: Wolverine grossed ($85.1 million) when it opened in 2009, on its way to a $180-million domestic haul and $373.1 million worldwide. What The Wolverine has going for it is that nothing is going against it. It is the only film opening wide this weekend, and the strongest holdovers are animated family films aimed principally at the kiddies. Reviews have been decidedly mixed.

CBS Losers

One day ahead of the expiration of Time Warner Cable's carriage contract with CBS, each side appears to be standing firm. CBS seems determined to win a substantial increase in its retransmission fee -- at least twice what it currently receives; and TWC seems determined not to pay it. CBS undoubtedly has weighed what it will lose from reduced ad rates during a blackout against what it could potentially gain over the long run from the additional cable revenue. By the same token, TWC execs must certainly be aware that if they knuckle under to CBS's demands, they will face similar ones from the other broadcast networks. On the other hand, will they now lose subscribers to satellite services and Aereo if they stand firm? While the cable companies have usually ended up Losers in these disputes, BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield argued in a note to clients on Monday that CBS may be overestimating its leverage. We strongly urge CBS management to reach an agreement with Time Warner Cable prior to Wednesday's deadline, as we believe the long-term repercussions to CBS could be quite problematic, he wrote, noting that one of those repercussions could be the loss of the prime Channel 2 dial positions in New York and Los Angeles.

California Film Commission Approves 28 Projects For Tax Credits


Losers

The California Film Commission received 380 applications for tax credits this year and approved 28 of them, it said on Monday. While the number of approvals remained the same as last year, the number of applications was up 18 percent. A lottery system was used to select the winners. The commission has indicated that it realizes how intense the competition for tax consideration can be; Losers often end up bringing their projects to other states, where tax breaks are often more generous than California's.

Hannity, O'reilly See Ratings Plummet


Sean Hannity Losers Barack Obama CNN

Politico.com media columnist Dylan Byers has taken issue with New York Daily News TV writer Don Kaplan, who on Sunday headlined his column Political commentator Sean Hannity was one of the big Losers in the 2012 election. Kaplan had written that Hannity's ratings had cratered following the election as he lost around half his audience, while colleague Bill O'Reilly's audience had dropped by nearly a third. He attributed the loss to viewer disillusionment over Hannity's repeated forecasts -- and those of his guests -- that Mitt Romney would defeat Barack Obama by a landslide margin. Byers, on the other hand, while noting that Hannity's viewers declined to 1.95 million viewers after the election from 3.6 million during the week prior to the election, noted that the conservative talk show host merely returned to the numbers he had been attracting before the Republican National Convention. Same goes for Bill O'Reilly, who went from 4.14 million viewers the week before the election to 3.05 million after the election, Byers observed. Both Kaplan and Byers do agree, however, that MSNBC and CNN have been more successful at retaining their audiences following the election, especially among the 25-54 age group.

He said: ''It's definitely something we've been hoping for a long time. We always wanted to get the two original guys Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back together and see what they're up to. Now it's almost 20 years after the original and the other guys are in a point in their career where they had so much fun the first time that they're willing to do it. We will make this movie.''

Is Online Video Cannibalizing Cable Tv?


Losers Discovery Disney

Online video sites like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and iTunes that offer older TV episodes -- including whole seasons of some series -- are likely hurting cable TV channels that also offer some of the same shows, according to Anthony DiClemente, media analyst at Barclays Capital. MediaPost 's MediaDailyNews.com quoted a note to clients from DiClemente in which he noted that a number of major cable networks had seen ratings declines. "We believe most of the ratings weakness is concentrated in syndicated and rerun programming, a genre that now has more direct competition from online platforms," he wrote. His advice that cable networks focus on live sports and original programming. Among the Losers "AMC networks, down 13 percent from a year ago; Viacom networks down 10 percent; NBCUniversal networks, down 10 percent; Time Warner networks, off 5 percent; Disney channels, flat. DiClemente did note one exception to the general declining or flat audience numbers at the cable nets Discovery channels, which posted ratings growth of 16 percent in the second quarter.

Losers, Beautiful Losers Album Review



Whistle posse make some noise.......

As Ms Chrissie Hynde so eloquently put it many years ago..'It's a thin line between love and hate' and whilst hate may be an all too extreme emotion to be harbouring in such a context it does not negate the fact that art forms do tread a precarious path. When does a joke stop being funny and start being offensive, when does art stop being creative and instead becomes crass? How wide is the gap between FatBoy Slim and Jive Bunny?

XFM's Eddy Temple Morris and The Cooper Temple Clause's Tom Bellamy may be someone's idea of a dream ticket on paper, on CD however they are somewhat less than the sum of their respective parts. The unashamedly 90's references to dance demigods The Prodigy and Faithless abound on the Losers album but the results are closer to parody rather than perfection. In trying to take a 2010 twist on a time not long enough forgotten to be able to remember how good the originals were The Losers have only highlighted their own lack of creativity and imagination.
