I had a chance to speak with WWE superstar Fandango over the phone recently. Our conversation is posted below. Going into the interview, I didn't know what to expect - I had seen interviews with the former Johnny Curtis before and most were in character - understandably so, it makes sense that Fandango stay as Fandango during many media engagements.  The big tell-all moment for me was in the initial back and forth - there I would know what...

The Money In the Bank pay-per-view has become a cornerstone event for the WWE every year. This year is no exception, though for different reasons than usual. With the vacated WWE World Heavyweight title, this feels like a reset of the main-event picture, for better or worse. For close to a year now, the title has been all about The Authority and the wrestlers going against The Authority. While certainly Orton, Kane and Triple H are involved at the moment, this can be used to get the belt away.

The Harry Potter series, already considered a force for publishing, film and children's reading habits, may have rung up another breakthrough: online movie-ticket sales. Fandango Inc., the largest remote movie-ticketing company in the United States, reported yesterday that it sold 700,000 tickets over the Internet for the opening weekend of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, an estimated 5 percent of the total box office. Fandango sales exceeded $4.5 million for Potter last weekend, the company reported.

Super Bowl XXXIX isn't all about football. Reebok International, for one, will wine and dine its clients and celebrity endorsers - from rapper Jay-Z to Ravens star Ray Lewis - in a pimped-out suite in Jacksonville, Fla., that boasts mini-lounges, a 21-foot mahogany bar, an Xbox video-game station, flat-screen televisions and pool table. The company behind the hangout is Fandango Special Events, a small Baltimore event-planning firm that got its start arranging bar mitzvahs but has since gained fans among big corporations for its funky decor and off-the-wall ideas.

Here's your ticket to a cheap(er) date: use a Visa Signature card to buy a movie ticket via Fandango on a Friday and get another ticket free . Fandango partners with only some theaters for its ticket sales so check the movie times through their site to see what's available. You may also have to pay a "convenience charge" per ticket. You can't use the value toward any other costs such as concessions or parking, so just keep the number of people in your party at an even number.

Everything that Wrestlemania wasn't, for the hardcore WWE fan, Raw was. It had twists, it had turns, and most of all, it had chants. Lots of chants. Chants never heard at a WWE event before. In fact, for much of Raw, the fans hijacked the show. It started with Dolph Ziggler. Fans were chanting for him throughout the show, until he appeared to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase, and the place went wild. Nobody sat down during the 2-3 minute match where Ziggler finally won the World Heavyweight title, with most fans in the audience having the opinion that he more than deserved it. It was a surreal moment ... a "WrestleMania moment," just the following day. Once fans got what they asked for with Ziggler, they turned their attention elsewhere.

Molly Ringwald's Sweet Charity is definitely sweet. She's also cute and spunky and innocent. But though the actress -- still best known for the John Hughes' teen movies Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink -- plays a dance hall hostess, she's not one of the slickest dancers in the touring production at the Hippodrome Theatre. Neil Simon's script does give Ringwald an out. "Who dances? We defend ourselves to music," one of Charity's co-workers explains to a newcomer. "Innocent" might also sound like a stretch for the taxi dancers at the sleazy Fandango Ballroom.

When the lights dim for "Hunger Games" at midnight Thursday, Fatimah Nelson, who bought tickets weeks ago, will be there, a bit breathless, at the edge of a plush seat at Arundel Mills. "I've been waiting months and months and months," says the Baltimore 21-year-old. "I'm really excited. " Nelson and millions of others in Maryland and around the country are braced for the opening of "Hunger Games," the latest young adult book series to become a runaway hit and then a movie and, it's looking like, a cultural phenomenon on the likes of "Harry Potter" and "Twilight.

Ever since the day after WrestleMania, when "Fandangoing" became a thing, we knew that when WWE returned to the United Kingdom just weeks later, that it would all resume. Sure, the Fandango theme singing craze took a dip in between, but it's genesis was truly fans in the United Kingdom who made the trip to WrestleMania. So it comes as no surprise that the singing and dancing was out in full force on WWE Raw. I think WWE did a great job with the trend and weaving it into the show -- from using the theme song as a distraction for Chris Jericho in his match against Dolph Ziggler to having Fandango match up against William Regal (perhaps one of the only guys on the roster who could shift the crowd's attention)

XALAPA, MEXICO / / In this misty town tucked in the Sierra Madre mountain range, far from Mexico's tourist track, a musical revolution is unfolding. In the clubs that dot Xalapa's winding streets and alleyways, young musicians are preserving -- and transforming -- a traditional folk genre called son jarocho. It's a soulful, foot-stomping style (think "La Bamba" but better) typically played on small guitars plucked in jazzy improvisations or strummed faster than the eye can see. Performances often turn into all-night jams called fandangos that unveil the joys and sorrows, the injustices and absurdities of life, love and politics.
