Who lives here? Feb. 7, 2015

Each week, The News-Gazette will show a screen shot of a home from a movie or TV show and ask readers, "Who lives here?"

Rich Warren: Message received: TV tuners vary by brand, model

The dust and poker chips from the Consumer Electronics show settled and little showcased there will change your life. Other than looking cool, curved TV screens fail to deliver a better picture or a more immersive experience. What more can be crammed into a smartphone that doesn't already fill its innards, short of a better, longer lasting battery?

Dear HGTV: Don't forget the little people

HGTV is an old friend.

The network of home makeovers and remodeling shows debuted in 1994, and I’ve been a faithful fan ever since.

I’ve daydreamed about which show I’d apply for and mentally drafted many a heart-tugging letter to the producers.

The News-Gazette is invited to a party today at Hooters. So is the rest of Champaign-Urbana.

The occasion? To celebrate the work of Champaign Central and Illinois alum Jenell Hendrix.

Hendrix is the 2015 Hooters Girl of the Year.

I'll admit it: I've never seen "Slap Shot." Yes, there is something seriously wrong with me.

I wanted to see it when it first hit the theaters in 1977 but I was too young. And Mom wasn't willing to go as my adult supervision. (Excellent parenting).

Rich Warren: Get ready, cable apps are all the rage

2015 promises scores of smartphone apps you'll download and probably never use.

Dozens of features you'll lust after and probably never use. Smartphones and tablets in sizes for every hand, pocket and eye prescription will flood the landscape. The universal, excluding those who only want to make phone calls or text, will be the entertainment available on these devices.

Eager for the big game?

Ask 'Mimi' Jan. 18, 2015

Are there any stars coming to Ebertfest April 15-19?

As usual, yes. But as usual, festival director Nate Kohn and others are keeping their lips sealed, at least for the time being.
