Practicing an instrument is solitary business. There’s just no way around it. To get a piece of music right takes an enormous amount of time with just the player and the instrument. (Writing is often this way as well, marked by solitary work that, as Shelby Foote once said, is best done alone at a table drawn up in front of a blank wall.)

An ode to food, France, film and flirtation, “Paris Can Wait” is a creamy but not entirely disposable bonbon of a movie.

“What exactly is it that you’re doing?” The question from a senior citizen attending a lifelong learning program I’d just addressed took me by surprise. My topic was the centennial of the United States entry into World War I and, as is my usual practice, I hadn’t planned out what I would say beforehand.

Anyone expecting the movie “It Comes at Night” to live up — or, rather, to live down — to the self-consciously cheesy promise of its name, which hints at the kind of nocturnal boogeyman who has haunted so many horror films before it, must be unfamiliar with the work of its writer and director, Trey Edward Shults.

Worship music from one of Waco’s largest Christian churches moves outdoors when AntiochLIVE, the lead worship band of Antioch Community Church, performs as headliner for Thursday’s free RiverSounds concert at McLennan Community College’s Bosque River Stage.

You all should be ashamed of yourselves. Honestly, it is just so immature to giggle at toilet humor. If you don’t watch out, the evil Professor Poopypants may just zap the laughter lobes of your brains. You’ll never snicker at his name again. Or at anything else, for that matter.

“Wonder Woman “ has been the subject of so much superfluous fuss, it’d be easy to forget that behind all of the hand-wringing and both symbolic and real pressure to succeed there’s actually a movie meant to entertain.

When I mention a ballet about dancing confections, chances are you’ll immediately think of “The Nutcracker,” the perennial Christmas favorite penned by Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky in 1892. In fact if I were to ask most people to name any ballet at all, that would be the one. With its memorable music and family-friendly plot there’s a good reason that it’s so well known.
