Get Out and See the World: Why Traveling is Important | Amy Poehler's Smart Girls
Carmen San Diego was the first person—and fictional serial criminal—who opened my eyes to the wonders of travel. Technically, she is just an animated woman in a crimson trench coat who never spoke, but all of us 90s kids watching Carmen San Diego knew that as much fun as it was to corner Carmen using our geography skills, it would be even better to be her. She might have been on the lam, but she still got to see the Taj Mahal, boat down the Amazo...

I’ve always loved comedy and have tried doing stand-up before; it’s harder than it looks. In August 2015 I listened to a stand-up set that changed my life: it was Live by Tig Notaro. It was just weeks before I was diagnosed with cancer, and Tig’s set opened with her declaring, both fearfully and boldly, “Hello, I have cancer.” She went on to describe how she discovered she was sick, and how her year had been insurmountably bad.

ese were just a few tips shared with the Cut’s red-carpet reporters during an acting-school experiment, in which we asked actresses to share their best advice for Hollywood aspirants. After last weekend’s Ghostbusters opening showed exactly what’s at stake for women in Hollywood (more blockbusters with female-driven leads, scripts, and bigger budgets), the women here offer wise encouragement for those trying to break in. Read on to hear from Laverne Cox, Greta Gerwig, Kathleen Turner, and more.

Lea DeLaria

“Learn how to wait tables. Really. Or bartend, because you’re going to need something to fall back on. And finally, the biggest thing you need is stick-to-it-iveness. You’re never going to make it if you quit. You’ve got to believe in yourself and keep going.”

Taryn Manning

“Have more than one thing that you love to do. It’s not about a fallback plan, because that’s not my point. For me, it’s music. So when I’m not scoring roles or this or that, I know I can go to the studio and play my guitar. It feels like I’m creatively fulfilled, and I don’t feel like it’s desperate. Like, there’s obviously a desperation when you don’t know where your next paycheck is coming from, but it just takes the pressure off.”

Greta Gerwig

“Write your own material, and then find people who want to make that material with you, because I don't think men will develop the kind of material that you ultimately want to do. All the women I love — whether it's Elaine May or Tina Fey or Mindy Kalin or Amy Poehler — they all are the authors of their own careers and their own work, and they really get to make things that are important to them because they're the creators.”

Kathleen Turner

“Come to New York, because you become an actor here.”

Laverne Cox

“You must train, train, train. I was in acting class Monday night. You must train, and then train some more. Learn the business part of it as well as the artistic part of it. I feel like if I can have a career as an actor than maybe anybody can.” [Laughs]

Emma Myles

“Train as hard as you can. Refine your craft, refine your technique. You watch someone like Meryl Streep and you’re like, Holy shit. I mean, she’s just standing there doing nothing and she’s doing everything. So be like Meryl Streep. That’s my advice: Be like Meryl Streep.”

Amy Irving

“Once you've explored your instrument — whether it's through schooling, workshop, whatever — [and you] have a sense of what your instrument can do, I think it's important to go [to Hollywood] and pay your dues. I've always talked about having served time there. It's like, you have to show your face, let the casting people know who you are, see what you've got. You've got to make the rounds. Sometimes you can get someone to help you get introduced. I was very lucky in that I was in drama school in London and John Schlesinger wanted to use me in a film. He did screen tests with me and the studio wouldn't let him use me, but when I did go to Los Angeles, where my family was at that point, he made a lot of introductions for me, so it made it really easy to start.”

Taylor Schilling

“To love it. Love it, love it.”

Samira Wiley

“A lot of times I get people coming into audition rooms and they come back out and talk to me about it and say, ‘I tried to do this’ or ‘I thought they wanted this.’ Sometimes they don’t know what they want. You have to just show them what you are, and not be ashamed about that. The right job wants you for who you are.”

Abigail Savage

“Be patient! When I was graduating from college that’s what the head of the drama department said to all of us, and I took it to heart. I was in the industry for a long time trying to get anywhere, somewhere, before Orange fell in my lap. It can come at any time. There are some people in this cast who [flew] under the radar for 30 years before this show. So be patient.”

These interviews have been edited and condensed.

Reported by Heather Buckley at a Peggy Siegal Company screening of De Palma; Trupti Rami at BAMcinemaFest2016 opening night premiere of Little Men; and Renata Sellitti at the Orange Is the New Black season 4 premiere.

#RikinTrivedi - #n9 - Updated: Best Netflix TV shows: 25 great television series on Netflix: Best Netflix TV shows: 25 great Netflix TV series Netflix's transition from a DVD rental service to a streaming behemoth has been impressive to watch. The company has sunk tons of money and effort into making itself into the Number 1 destination for on-demand content that it isn't just a place to watch things, it also creates them. So much so that the big TV and movie studios are rightly running scared. While Netflix slowly makes a land grab for movies, it's perhaps its television output that is the reason most people have an account. There's a ton of TV content to feast upon - too much to ever consider watching in one lifetime. This is why we've created a guide to the best Netflix shows in the US right now. We'll keep this list constantly updated with the latest television shows that you should be watching and also tell you why. * Check out our in-depth Netflix review 1. Daredevil When it comes to superhero movies, Marvel are bossing DC thanks to the rich tapestry it has weaved with its cinematic universe. Its TV shows, as fun as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Agent Carter are, haven't had the same success as DC's The Arrow or The Flash. Thankfully Daredevil has come along to change all this. Released in one binge-watching dose, Daredevil is superb television, regardless if you are a superhero fan or not. Matt Murdoch's (Boardwalk Empire's Charlie Cox) rise from blind lawyer to vigilante is brutal and steeped in realism. The reason it works so well is that it doesn't shy away from being violent - each crack and crunch is a world away from Ben Affleck's terrible movie version. And special mention has to go to Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, his best role since the tortured Private Pyle. Seasons on Netflix: 2 2. Archer Given that Archer is set at the International Secret Intelligence Service (unfortunately abbreviated as ISIS), recent terror atrocities have meant the animation has been getting headlines for the wrong reasons. But don't let this unlucky nomenclature put you off. Archer is a brilliant send-up of spy movies of yore, complete with some of the best voiceover talent - many of which have been pruned from the cast of Arrested Development. While the fifth season 'reboot' wasn't the success it should have been, Archer is still one of the best cartoon comedies around. Seasons on Netflix: 6 3. Arrested Development If it wasn't for Netflix, Arrested Development would have stayed as a three-season wonder. The streaming giant decided to take a gamble and fund a fourth season of Mitchell Hurwitz's brilliant family comedy and we are glad it did. While splitting the family up for most of the season meant some of the spark had disappeared - this was done to fit in with the actors' busy schedules - the fourth season proved that there was still a lot to like about the dysfunctional Bluth family. Filled with season-long in-jokes, perfect site gags and spot-on wordplay, Arrested Development is a comedy that needs to be watched on repeat - and even then you will find something new to laugh at. Seasons on Netflix: 4 4. Futurama Created, written and well-loved by animation legend Matt Groening, you might have wrote Futurama off as filler content for Fox's Sunday night programming block. If that sounds like you, you inadvertently did a major disservice to creativity, humor and passion Groening poured into every panel year after year for over a decade. Futurama is funny, witty and has the uncanny ability to poke fun at cultural icons without sinking to juvenile mud-slinging. Each time the series got the axe broke our heart a little more, which didn't get the mending it needed until the final episode of the final season. Seasons on Netflix: 10 5. Mad Men Mad Men is more addictive than the cigarettes Don Draper is trying to market us. If you've never watched it, essentially Mad Men is a show about everything we now consider taboo in glaringly harsh light. Set in 1960s America, inter-office intercourse is par for the course, along with ashtrays overflowing with cigarettes, sexism at the highest levels and a complete disregard for morals so long as it serves the characters on their climb to the top of the corporate ladder. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his assistant Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) shock and entertain us by showing the lifestyles of the advertising executives who got the public to buy cigarettes long after they knew the health risks. Seasons on Netflix: 7 6. Black Mirror There's no better person to portray not-so-distant future dystopias than Charlie Brooker. He's been holding a warped mirror up to the ridiculous nature of the world's media for years, mixing cutting comments with comedy, but Black Mirror sees him entering darker territory. Each series is just three episodes long but they are all standalone treats, twisting reality in their own unique way while commenting on things we seem to hold dear today - namely technology and television. Seasons on Netflix: 2 (and the White Christmas special) 7. Breaking Bad More addictive than the meth pushed by Walt and Jessie, Breaking Bad is brilliant binge-watching television. The initial plot is simple: a straight-laced teacher is told he has cancer and to make sure he leaves his family with the best possible life, he turns to drug making and dealing. There's method to his madness as he ends up being pretty good at it. Creator Vince Gilligan has created such a good group of characters, he is currently mining the same world again with Better Call Saul. But that has some way to go reach the highest highs that Breaking Bad offers. Seasons on Netflix: 5 8. Narcos Narcos, Netflix's newest original drama starring Wagner Moura as famed cocaine dealer Pablo Escobar, is about as addictive to watch as the substance it revolves around. Each episode illuminates Escobar's backstory while bringing him one step closer to his inevitable demise, all the while showing a somewhat endearing man consumed by his own ego. If you're looking for something to fuel your hangover now that Breaking Bad is caput, Narcos is a much-needed prescription that'll scratch your itch. Seasons on Netflix: 1 9. Jessica Jones If you thought Daredevil was dark for Marvel, wait until you watch Jessica Jones. A show set in Hell's Kitchen that follows a troubled, alcoholic vigilante (sound familiar?), Jones takes subject matter too mature to show elsewhere and plops it in with an insane backstory and a few twists that turn the knife and leave you clicking on the next episode. Breaking Bad's Krysten Ritter plays a superb lead character, coming off as intelligent and witty, without succumbing to gross stereotyping. You won't find Galactus or any other world-threatening villain here, but the one the writers went for is cold-blooded and depraved in a way few others are. If you've already gobbled up Daredevil and like your comic stories with a bit more grit, booze and sex scenes, you won't need to hire a private investigator to discover your new favorite show on Netflix. Check out our Jessica Jones review Seasons on Netflix: 1 10. Louie If you like Louis C.K.'s stand up, you're going to love Louie. It's dark. It's funny. It makes us look at ourselves and our situations and just think "Huh, I guess it could be a lot worse." Each episode is divided into two parts: a stand-up segment where Louie tells jokes to a faceless audience and a fictional vignette that either refutes or enforces the previous joke. So how can a comedian's life, even a fictional version of it, be funny? We have no idea, but it just works. Seasons on Netflix: 5 11. Master of None As smart and funny Parks and Recreation is, the show doesn't do a great job with Aziz Ansari's character. He comes off as one-dimensional, shallow, egotistical and unrealistic barring two or three episodes where he gets the spotlight. Master of None takes Ansari out of Amy Poehler's shadow and brings him into his own, showing audiences a side of the comedian that anyone in their mid-20s or early 30s can relate to. Like Louie, Master of None covers the oddities of everyday life, incorporating all the heartfelt moments and awkward situations that come with the territory. Seasons on Netflix: 1 12. Dexter If your life needs a bit more blood and poetic justice in it, check out Dexter, a show about a Miami detective who not only solves homicide cases, but commits them, too. Known previously for his work on HBO's Six Feet Under, Michael C Hall's devious, semi-sociopathic persona shines through in his role as the lead character. The show manages to cut deep, often giving you a dozen reasons to care about a man who kills for all the right reasons. Seasons on Netflix: 8 13. House of Cards If there ever was a poster boy for Netflix, House of Cards would be it. Funded completely by the streaming service, Cards' first season boasted direction by David Fincher and acting by Kevin Spacey and was addictive television. The reason: Netflix positively wanted you to binge watch, putting all episodes up at once. Now in its third season, Netflix's Card trick is still impressive and shows just how far Netflix has come, given it's shot in both 4K and HDR. Seasons on Netflix: 4 14. It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Initially made on a shoe-string budget, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia first season had a cult following, but low viewing figures meant it was destined to be a one-series wonder. Thankfully, everything changed when Season 2 was eventually green-lit, thanks to some big-time star power. Danny De Vito joined for a 10-episode run that was extended because he loved it so much. He's still in the show that's now in its 10th season, bringing with him huge viewing figures. The antics of Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Mac (Rob McElhenney, the show's creator), Charlie (Charlie Kelly) and Sweet Dee (Kaitlin Olson) won't be for everyone - at its darkest the show's 'comedy' themes range from nazism to drug abuse - but stick with it and this deliciously depraved classic will reward you. Seasons available on Netflix: 10 15. Firefly After he had produced the perfect female lead in Buffy and before he was Hulk smashing with The Avengers, Joss Whedon created a short-run sci-fi series that has spawned not only a massive cult following but, quite astonishingly, a movie. The reason it was such an underground success was because Firefly takes the Star Wars framework of making space messy, where everything is a little rough around the edges - including the crew. It even has its own Han Solo in the form of Nathan Fillion's Malcolm Reynolds. Whedon's witty words permeate the whole of Firefly, which is not so much a space opera but a space rock opera. Seasons on Netflix: 1 16. Making a Murderer True crime stories are so hot right now, evidenced by the immense popularity of the podcast Serial and HBO's The Jinx. Netflix's original series Making a Murderer however, is probably the hottest of them all, documenting and recounting the trials of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, two working-class Americans accused of the murder of 23-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach. Over its 10 episodes, the show exposes the failings of the Wisconsin justice system in blood-boiling detail. Having spent 18 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, Steven Avery is exonerated based on new DNA evidence. However, shortly after his release, he becomes the prime suspect in Halbach's murder, and Avery is put through the ringer once again by law enforcement figures that seem to have it out for him. What follows is an anger-inducing sequence of events that involve forced confessions, unconvincing (and possibly planted) evidence, dodgy lawyers and a complete presumption of guilt from almost everyone involved. Compelling, infuriating and tragic, we guarantee you won't be able to stop watching Making a Murderer once you've started. Seasons on Netflix: 1 17. The Walking Dead Most shows that take place after the apocalypse dry up after a season or two, typically because things can only go from bad to better so many times before the survivors set up a new utopia. It's good then that The Walking Dead isn't like most shows. Sure, sometimes situations go from bad to better, but that's only before things fall apart and the situation becomes even more dire than when the episode started. Oh, and the old joke about main characters always being safe when they're in a room together? That doesn't apply here. No one is safe, and that's what makes The Walking Dead a show that works season after season, episode after episode. Seasons on Netflix: 5 18. Orange is the New Black It may have never reached the heady heights of House Of Cards, but Orange Is The New Black is another show that proves Netflix is now up there with HBO when it comes to offering decent programming. Set in a woman's prison, Orange doesn't shirk the big issues of violence and rape but manages to mix these with a heady dose of black humor. Oh, and its first series was actually more popular than Cards which is a surprise as Netflix's advertising has always been very Spacey heavy. Seasons on Netflix: 4 19. Shameless Before we continue on with recommendation, Shameless comes with a warning: this show, a dramedy about a poor family in Chicago, really is shameless. Frank, played by William H. Macy will scheme his way to his next drink ... even if that means taking his own kids' lunch money. If you have ethical problems watching less-than-admirable people doing whatever it takes to make ends meet, Shameless isn't for you. All that said, those that don't mind a bit more ... unscrupulous cast of characters will seriously enjoy Shameless's grittier, sex- and money-driven take on the Modern Family comedy. Seasons on Netflix: 4 20. Gotham Given that the best thing about the Batman mythos is, er, Batman, Gotham really shouldn't work. But it does, even if it does take a while to get into. The first few episodes tease, tease and tease again the potential villains that permeate Gotham but once character arcs take over and the endless knowing nods dissipate, the show comes into its own. We really hope that the second season has fewer side plots and focuses more on the Sean Pertwee's Alfred and the superb Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin. Seasons on Netflix: 1 21. Better Call Saul Vince Gilligan made no secret of the fact he wanted to re-visit the world of Breaking Bad and, while many were apprehensive that it was 'too soon', we shouldn't have been worried. Yes, there was always a fear that Better Call Saul would turn out to be what Joey was to Friends but it has thankfully more Frasier to Cheers. This all thanks to Bob Odenkirk's portrayal of Saul Goodman, the corrupt lawyer who - despite the world he is in - has his heart is in the right place, even if he is consistently in the wrong place. Seasons on Netflix: 1 22. Sherlock It shouldn't work but it really really does. This modern retelling of the Sherlock Holmes stories is as good as it gets. Benedict Cumberbatch is everything you want in a Holmes - someone that wallows in wit, weirdness and warmth. While Martin Freeman plays Dr Watson as he plays all his characters - he's the everyman that has to learn how to deal with his extraordinary colleague. Episodes are scarce but each one is feature length, which gives them time to breath. Let's just hope these two superstars can find time in their busy schedules to keep doing the show. Seasons on Netflix: 3 23. Parks and Recreation We always knew Amy Poehler was funny. Sketch after sketch on Saturday Night Live proved she had the comedic timing of a professional stand-up mixed with the creative capacity of an executive producer. Each episode of Parks and Rec is a chance to see Poehler do what she does best, with an excellent supporting cast of Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza and Rashida Jones behind her every step of the way. While we were sad to see the show come to a heart-wrenching conclusion this year, the finale in February was the perfect excuse to go back and binge-watch the entire series from start to finish. Seasons on Netflix: 7 24. Sons of Anarchy There's very good reason Sons of Anarchy is the highest rated show on FX ever - its Shakespeare-esque plot (think Hamlet on bikes), following the tumultuous lives of a motorcycle gang, has everyone who watches it gripped. The show ended in 2014 after seven glorious seasons - although later seasons could never quite reach the glory days of one to three - and is perfect fodder for those looking for another Breaking Bad-style fix. Seasons on Netflix: 6 25. Freaks and Geeks On the list of shows that were tragically cut down before their prime, Number 1 is Firefly. Number 2, however, is Freaks and Geeks, the show that served as a launching pad for some of our favorite stars in comedy today. Brash, mischievous and hysterical, James Franco, Jason Segel and Seth Rogen provide a perfect counter-balance for the tepid (and completely loveable) Linda Cardellini. The show scores the last spot on our list and in our hearts because at the end of the day we've all been Cardellini's character, Lindsay. We've all been picked on, called a nerd and genuinely loved something - whether that's cellphones, computers, televisions, whatever. And just when you think you'll never fit in, the right group of people somehow find their way into your life. Seasons on Netflix: 1 - @Rikins #Rikin #SimplyRik

Two Cool Ways To Beat The Summer Desert Heat

Take A Ride On The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

The Desert Sun’s Meg Ryan writes about a cool way to beat the summer desert heat and get a different view of the Coachella Valley at the same time by taking a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. At the top is the Mountain Station, where riders can grab a bite to eat at either the Peaks Restaurant or Pines Cafe, wander through the gift shops or take a look at the natural history museum. For those riders looking for adventure, Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness Area offers 50 miles of hiking trails, including picnic areas and campgrounds. The Tramway offers free guided nature walks on Saturdays and Sundays, one at 11 a.m. through the Desert View Trail and one at 1:30 p.m. through the Long Valley Discovery Trail. The tours are offered from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Take In A Dive-In Movie At The Arrive Hotel

The Desert Sun’s Vibe & Style Columnist, Xochitl Pena writes that Palm Springs’ Arrive Hotel and the Palm Springs International Film Society have partnered to host dive-in movie nights, people floating in a pool, eating popcorn and enjoying a fun flick, the third Thursday of the month. The featured film this coming Thursday (July 21st) is the 2001 comedy “Wet Hot American Summer,” starring a pre-Oscar-nominated Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio and Michael Showalter.
