The hit song-writing duo behind Disney mega-hit ‘Frozen’ have written a track that Neil Patrick Harris will perform at the Oscars next month.

Louis CK sent a personal e-mail to all those who bought tickets to his Tuesday night show at Madison Square Garden. It is, as you'd expect, hysterical. Dear friend, Hi.

"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
