Here’s the trailer for FX’s Fargo, which premieres April 15th, and features Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Adam Goldberg, Colin Hanks and many others. I believe this is Billy’s first TV series since Hearts Afire

I’ve never read The Giver, but the big screen adaptation seems to be doing something right, as it stars Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Katie Holmes and Alexander Skarsgaard. It also allegedly has Taylor Swift, but I don’t see her in this trailer.

We’re shifting the focus of the latest Briefs List back to the greatest aspect of 80’s pop culture … the music, which remains the ultimate pop music decade. For this list, we’re going to focus on the ladies, and countdown the The Top 100 Hits Of The Ladies Of the 80’s. There are only two rules: all the songs had to hit the Billboard Top Ten, and they’re all sung by women … whether solo or with a group. Ready to jog your memory?

At #63 is … “Telefone” by Sheena Easton. The second Sheena song on the list comes from my favorite Sheena album, 1983’s Best Kept Secret (which also included the faboo “Almost Over You, Devil In A Fast Car” and a terrific cover of “Just One Smile”) Although 1984’s A Private Heaven is a very close second. Anyway, “Telefone” hit #9 in November 1983.
