The mountains are as gorgeous as ever, the deal climate not so much as boutique investment bank Allen & Co . prepares to host its annual Sun Valley retreat. After guests arrive on Tuesday, official activities get under way Wednesday. The annual ritual of media-mogul whitewater rafting and shop talk is a 40-year, post-July 4 tradition. It was suspended in 2020 during the worst of Covid but returned last year in a pared-down, masked-and-vaxxed version soon after two major deals were announced — the Warner Media/Discovery merger and Amazon’s planned takeover of MGM. Discovery’s then CEO David Zaslav ’s first comment to the Sun Valley press cadre a year ago: “We’re not done yet.” Now he’s chief executive of the new Warner Bros. Discovery and will likely be more circumspect as the high-debt company tries to deliver on a promised $3 billion in cost savings, and, with its peers, weather a brutal stock market, a Wall Street about-face on streaming, soaring inflation … [Read more...] about Media Moguls To Gather At Annual Allen & Co.

On a warm afternoon in June, crowds in Northwest D.C. celebrated Juneteenth by filling the air with the sounds of drums, toms, and voices, singing throughout the streets. I’m speed walking to catch my train home in order to spend the last few hours of Father’s day with my dad , himself a drummer, who just lost his oldest child and only son, my brother, unexpectedly that Monday. I zoom past the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where I’d spent part of my morning with Pharrell , recapping his second Something In The Water festival, which took place the same weekend. Despite being pressed for time, a sound distinct to the area brings me to a sudden halt: A crowd is dancing to live go-go. Here, t he rich history and culture that museums and music festivals hoped to cultivate played out in real-time. I wonder, briefly, if should just catch a different train and get home a little later. I choose my dad, but the sound is so enticing that w hen I … [Read more...] about How a Celebration of Go-Go Music Became a Scapegoat For Violence in D.C.
Gopichand starring Pakka Commercial, a courtroom drama directed by Maruthi has finally hit the screens after a long time. The movie was released amid decent expectations but the lack of a thick story and proper treatment of the script has given way to a divide talk among movie buffs. Although the performances of the lead actors Gopichand and Raashi Khanna are applauded, the movie is billed as a routine run-of-the-mill attempt. Director Maruthi is known for films overrun with comedy but Pakka Commercial has very few moments of laughter. Raashi Khanna nailed her performance in the role of a young lawyer Jhansi. It is rare to find women actors to deliver comedy with perfect timing and impress the audience but Raashi seemed to have achieved the feat. She was seen in a couple of roles earlier, where she brought out her best comedy timing. The movie collected somewhere between Rs 2 Core and Rs 3 Crore from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states on the release day. … [Read more...] about Pakka Commercial Day 1 Box Office Collection Worldwide: Gopichand’s Action Comedy off To An Average Start!
