"The Art of More" TV Show Coming in November 19th!

Crackle is Cracking Open a new heist series in time for the holidays...

Mario Sevigny is a Canadian multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who has composed for film, television and movie trailers. From his first television gigs as a composer for a children’s animated network to his work on serious dramas such as Human Trafficking, Mario has built a rather eclectic resume over the years. Sevigny is currently scoring Sony Crackle's original drama series, The Art of More, which launches November 19!

Sony’s Crackle officially has entered the original drama field with its first hourlong series, The Art Of More, starring Dennis Quaid. Christian Cooke (Magic City) has been cast as the co-lead opposite Quaid in the project, which has received a 10-episode straight-to-series order from the digital network. Kate Bosworth (Still Alice) co-stars.

Sevigny discovered music for tv and film when he became assistant to Jerry De Villiers Jr. on Louis Saïa films ''The Boys 2 and 3,” “Cause of death” and “Believe." Several years later, in 2002, Sevigny took a chance and supported a short film entitled "Ice Cold." As a result of the film's success, Sevigny was tapped for many projects leading to nearly 100 trailers composed by Christal Films, Alliance Atlantis Vivafilm, TVA Films, and Equinoxe Films among others.

Disney's MOANA Movie! #Moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana” has found her voice following a worldwide search to cast the film’s title character. Native Hawaiian newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, 14, joins Dwayne Johnson in the big-screen adventure about a spirited and fearless teenager named Moana (voice of Cravalho) who, with help from demi-god Maui (voice of Johnson), sets out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder.

While hundreds of talented people from across the Pacific Islands were eager to try out for the role, Cravalho set her sights firmly on her sophomore year of high school. “I didn’t think I would have a chance,” she said. “When I was little, I used to dance around the house singing at the top of my lungs. In my mind, that was performing and I loved the feeling of it. But I never imagined being in a Disney movie, being Moana—representing my culture in that way.”

Fortunately, the film’s Hawai’i casting director remembered an unrelated audition Cravalho did as part of an a cappella group, which had been submitted for a talent showcase for a charity. Feeling the local teen would be perfect for the Disney role, she tracked her and her mother down and invited Cravalho to audition. “Her audition was fantastic – she was such a raw talent,” said producer Osnat Shurer. “Auli’i was among a small number of girls we brought back for a second round of auditions. Then we flew her and her mom over to audition at our studios in Burbank.”

“Auli’i demonstrated a certain fearlessness in her auditions and call-backs,” said director John Musker. “She has a playful, mischievous wit. She can project vulnerability, she doesn’t seem intimidated at all by the challenges ahead, and her Polynesian background has helped shape her connection to family, hard work and music. These are all qualities she shares with Moana.”

“Moana is a vibrant, tenacious 16-year-old growing up on an island where voyaging is forbidden,” added director Ron Clements. “But Moana has been drawn to the ocean since she can remember and is desperate to find out what’s beyond the confines of her island.”

Cravalho has already started recording for the role.

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.

IPads, Tablets, and of course mom’s smartphone! Technology right at your child’s fingertips, anytime and anywhere.

Howard Eisenberg, a children’s book author based in New York City, has taken the both authenticity of a physical book and has added the hybrid experience of technology to create an interactive book and CD series called “Guess Who.”

The author’s series consists of three books, “Guess Who Zoo,” “Guess Who Farm” and “Guess Who Neighborhood,” which are all $14.95 each.

Why do kids (parents, too) love Guess Who Books?

  • Animals tell their stories... kids guess their names.
  • Special sections: "If Animals Could Talk.."
  • They're "fun that educates" with a clue in every line.

I sun myself upon the rocks
I wear no shoes. I need no socks.
The only school I ever see
Is a school of fish. That's lunch for me.
My furry skin's so warm, it's said
That I can make icebergs my bed
The circus puts me in its shows
To spin beach balls upon my nose.
Grownups applaud and children cheer
When I do back flips on my ear
For me though it is no big deal
It's really easy for a __________.

Disclosure: I received some Guess Who children's books in exchange for my post. My older children weren't too into them, and my three year old is too young to sit still to listen to them. I feel that they would be best suited for children who can sit still and listen to books, or for children around ages four to five years of age. But all children are different.

My Review:
My daughter and I had a chance to review four pieces of clothing from l.e.i. Two pairs of skinny jeans, which I wasn't sure were going to fit her, but they fit nicely, and two adorable shirts! The first shirt is purple with a pink purse for the design. The zipper on the purse actually works and there's a pocket behind it! My daughter wore this shirt when we went to a local place for pizza and to play some games for my son's 8th birthday. She was able to keep the tickets that she received for playing games inside the pocket/purse on her t-shirt! The leopard print sheer shirt has a built in black smooth/soft tank top underneath. My daughter isn't much into black, but after trying it on, she decided to keep it!

He's A Bully, Charlie Brown DVD #Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 10/14


Support Anti-Bullying Month in Support of Educating and Raising Awareness of Bullying Prevention

Important life lessons are learned by the Peanuts gang, on He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown available October 6, 2015 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE). This heartwarming collection brings together He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown and two newly remastered content into 4K Ultra HD, It’s a Short Summer, Charlie Brown and an episode of The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show. In this must-own compilation, Charlie Brown is called upon to stand up for one of his pals, who is taken advantage of by a bully at summer camp. This title will be released in time for National Bullying Prevention Month, which takes place in October. He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown will retail for $19.97 SRP.

With school out for summer, Charlie Brown and his pals set out for camp. Rerun van Pelt, Lucy’s youngest brother, brings his prized collection of marbles, which once belonged to his grandfather, Felix, an award-winning marbles champ. Rerun is determined to become a marble master just like his grandpa but first, he must find someone who will teach him how to play the game.

At camp, Rerun meets Joe Agate, a tough-talking and disrespectful older boy who takes advantage of Rerun’s naiveté and cons him out of all his grandpa Felix’s marbles. A devastated Rerun confides in Charlie Brown, who is so disgusted by Joe’s behavior that he decides to stand up to him, with the help of Snoopy as Joe Cool, of course. Will Charlie Brown summon the courage to face the awful Joe Agate and win back Rerun’s beloved marbles?

In It was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown, which is also featured on this release, it’s a hilarious battle of boys against girls, with Snoopy having to get in the middle of it all. At summer camp, the Peanuts gang put up with poor food and the girls winning all the sports competitions. To get even, the boys challenge them to an arm-wrestling contest between Lucy and “The Masked Marvel” – aka Snoopy in disguise. Will the boys triumph or stay defeated?

He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown also features an episode of The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show, which includes four delightful segments, including Shoveling, Rerun, Lost Blanket and The Manager.

“He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown, sends a powerful message. From time to time, we’re all faced with situations in which we have to be strong, courageous and stand up for what we believe is right,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “We’re delighted to release this inspiring collection. If you love Peanuts, this is one title you won’t want to miss.”
