Fun Facts About ABC's 'Nashville' -- the 5 Spot - Yahoo!


Fun Facts About ABC's 'Nashville' -- the 5 Spot - Yahoo! Voices 

The 5 Spot is a trendy live music venue and bar located on Forrest Ave near Five Points in the East Nashville community. Although it has a reputation for featuring preeminent local bands and has been featured more than once on ABC's "Nashville," many Nashvillians are surprised to discover the 5 Spot has been around for a decade or that it even exists. Indeed, stopping at the mini mart at Five Points right around the corner from the 5 Spot to ask directions produced puzzled looks from the store clerk and the local man in overalls who was shopping.

Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 with Stewart, Pattinson, Lautner a mediocre movie - Nashville Gospel Music & Entertainment Examiner


Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 with Stewart, Pattinson, Lautner a mediocre movie

"Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2" was released on November 16, 2012. With returning cast members including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Dakota Fanning, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, and Peter Facinelli, "Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2" is the highest rated film in the Twilight series. The movie continues the story of Bella Swan, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black and brings the story to its conclusion... ... but it just doesn't "sparkle."

Where Are the Manger Scenes in Stores for Christmas?


Today I went to Michael's in Bellevue, TN, looking for a small nativity scene for a Christmas craft I was making for a friend. They had a large $49 nativity scene, and they had a few gilded camels (but no wise men). There was one set of resin nativity figures ready for painting and one wall Christmas plaque with the holy family, but that was it.

Starring some of Hollywood's popular actors from the 1980s and 90s including Alicia Silverstone, Sigourney Weaver ("Red Lights," " You Again," "Avatar") Malcolm McDowell, Wallace Shawn, Marilu Henner ("The Art of Living"), Richard Lewis, and Kristen Johnston, the movie "Vamps" is juvenile, silly and frequently just plain gross.
