    I’m starting to become convinced that you haven’t heard a pulse dissolve or a measure replicate off-time quite right until you’ve heard Loscil, which, appropriately, if true, took its name from the “looping oscillator” function in the program Csound. Scott Morgan, the man at the helm of this fine Kranky act from Vancouver, weaves atmospheric, oft-murky and sometimes breathy textures among the somber, the noir-ish and the divine on Loscil’s new Sea Island LP, the noble successor to 2012’s Sketches From New Brighton.

    It was so exciting to be on a recent episode of Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories on Adult Swim. The episode, "The Endorsement" starring Jason Schwartzman was a comedic, dark and twisted look at the world of celebrity and entertainment news coverage with yours truly playing the host they put in a cage.

There’s been a lot written about The Basement Tapes Complete (Sony/Legacy) so you already know that Dylan had a motorcycle accident in 1966. A few months later he summoned his backing group, still known as the Hawks, to Byrdcliffe, NY. Beginning in March, 1967, the assembled musicians began recording in Dylan’s living room there, which was known as the Red Room. That summer they moved…

The little exposure they do get often focuses more on their attire, or how attractive, sexy or ladylike they are than on their actual athletic prowess. In the long run, this influences their performance in sports. So say the authors of a new review.

Remember the teased-and-sprayed Croissant Bang? Classic. Bangs have always been awesome, but it wasn’t until the mid-’50s that they experienced a makeover that reverberated through the culture something fierce.

  • Foreshadowing

    Daniel Edlen
    2 Nov 2014 | 7:20 pm
    Foreshadowing is a term usually used literarily. However it's kind of perfect for my work too. The black of the vinyl is all foreshadowing in a sense, creating the depth out of which I bring the faces. It feels more like I'm sculpting the face with the white acrylic, not painting it. For whatever reason, this idea, this technique, this process makes sense to my brain, creating these reverse newspaper photographs.This Jimi Hendrix is a piece that's particularly exciting because of where it will be displayed soon. I can't say yet because of where but I'm hoping it'll be big.More #foreshadowing.

  • Purchasing Custom Window Coverings

    Renovating or redecorating your home, in one way or another, is a fun way to make your home more appealing to you.  Of course, you should be smart and strategic in your renovations, and you should never undergo anything that you are not one hundred percent sure you want.  Choosing renovations that require minimal construction yet still have a major impact on your home’s aesthetic value are the best options.  Window coverings are one good example.  Window coverings are quite easily changed, and each style of window covering has a different effect on the look of the home.  Because…

    You know, I was going to ignore this as I’ve ignored every other “stop hating Iris and loving white women!” remark, but I am really disappointed in seeing these comments. Did you miss how this entire essay is a criticism of the show’s handling of Iris? “The show can find time to flesh out the white heroine in just three episodes, while the black heroine is little more than a checklist of love interest tropes existing on the fringe of things–excluded from the inner circle.” Like…I don’t see how that counts as “she hates Iris.” But…

    I’m only going to be brief in this comment given this is a site I’ve never heard of and this is an opinion piece afterall that no one has to agree with. I’m not sure what show you’re watching, but I can reply with certainty, you’re denigrating Iris unnecessarily and without merit. You’re reaching reeeealllly hard to find a legit reason to dismiss the character. And you need to be honest about why you don’t like Iris. You expect to have a white female front and center and because the show made the West family black, and Iris West is the lead woman…

    If they wanted to create drama in that relationship, him finding out is enough. They didn’t have to bring in Marion to fail again at a love triangle story. Regina killing Marion is enough angst. But that involves talented writers, and I don’t know if OUAT has plenty of those.

    22 Nov 2014 | 2:00 pm
    That dialogue of Hood talking about Marion does not make sense. He talked about how he become the honorable man he is because of Marion’s love for him. She changed him into be a better person. How does that lead him into Regina’s arms? So essentially he has to be not honorable to get with Regina and ignores a wife that he just got back. That is not fair to Regina who has been trying to do the right thing to save his wife. OQ is the worst written relationship on the show. And that is saying something when we have the issues of Captain Swan.

Solange broke the fashion rules, where the bride is the only one that should wear white (Kelly Rowland did it as well for her wedding).

    Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene RussoThe plot of Nightcrawler doesn’t sound particularly interesting on paper. It isn’t chasing a murderer or trying to hunt down a kidnapper, nor does it really have any mystery at all. It’s about a man who videotapes accidents to sell to local news networks in time for the AM news cycle. A nightcrawler. And that might be why such a profession hasn’t been touched yet for a major movie. It isn’t mainstreamed and the job itself is almost too easy to use in a story. It practically writes itself. But Nightcrawler goes…

She took the girl-next-door image and built herself around it with lyrics about the good and bad of relationships she’s had, doing so with innocence. She used her growing celebrity status, and subsequently the status of the men she was romantically linked with to her advantage, making her song lyrics the primary talking point about her. She became a superstar singer known for her songwriting – kind of a rarity in…

His delivery of that first line in Capsized is pretty much on point with the way Pink would have done it had it been her line. The two sound so well together that you would never think it was their first time recording as a single unit. You + Me is the collective…

    Cover for Hozier’s self-titled debut full-length album.The first time I heard Hozier‘s debut single Take Me To Church, I knew it was an event. Coupled with a music video that depicts violent homophobia in modern-day Russia and its use of religious imagery on sex, the song was bound to turn some heads and be either praised or slammed. There was little room for any middle ground. Hozier’s background as an Irish songwriter likely played a role in the inclusion of religion on his debut self-titled album. While the album isn’t centred around religion or Christianity, he…

TMZ claims that the young lady in question is April Love Geary. In her most recent interview, the model reportedly said she was 19 – almost half Thicke’s age. To be fair to Miss Geary, if you are going to have a sugar daddy it may as well be a beardy old pop star. It seems that Geary was one of the ‘four hot girls’ that benefitted from Thicke’s $2,800…

Some stories in the national papers have questioned if sugar is the new cocaine with many doctors confirming it contributes to obesity, cancer and heart disease.This minute granulated white stuff is, in fact, eight times more addictive than cocaine and Americans are consuming 152 pounds of it a year.According to the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing led by Trinnity College, Dublin, four out of five people over the age of 50 in Ireland are either overweight or obese.

She appeared mystified that the story she had spent seven years creating had sold 30,000 copies in the U.K; it had beaten the odds of what her publishers had thought were possible (she had been told that children’s books just didn’t sell in large numbers). In a café, somewhere in Scotland, she sat unrecognisable to her now self, with long curly red hair and a baggy woollen jumper, a cup of coffee nestled on the table beside her elbow. She spoke about the…

In fact, it is the talking racoon – Rocket, who exists as a result of a science experiment, the humanized tree – Groot, that has the ability to speak only three words for the entire of the film (“I am Groot”), the sensitive human -Peter Quill, who we see…

Well here is the only guide you’ll need to folding the worlds greatest and furthest flying paper airplane.

  • Close-up photos of a comet 67P from the Rosetta-Philae mission

    17 Nov 2014 | 8:44 pm
    It took 12 years for the Rosetta spacecraft to reach comet 67P more than 300 million miles away from Earth. So now it’s time for us to all sit back and enjoy the spectacular results.  Rosetta’s Philae lander successfully touched down on the comet’s surface, a cosmic first, on Nov. 12 and even though the mission may not be going 100% according to plan. Philae has still managed to spend more than two days conducting experiments before its solar-powered battery ran out of juice.  These images here were taken by Rosetta and Philae just before and after the comet landing. The beauty…

  • Gotham: “The Mask”

    K.M. Cone
    13 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Gotham‘s “The Mask” highlights yet again the strength of the show in terms of the ensemble cast and the overall character and story arcs. “The Mask” also managed to illuminate something for me in terms of the plans for the show. This isn’t some small, short-lived single-story arc (or at least, those involved have not created it to be so), kids. This is the creation of a universe. Before, we could only see one or two villains per film, and time was limited, which meant backstory was left out. I do believe Gotham is more true to the comics in tone, style,…
  • The Importance of Tension When Thinking About Technology

    Nate Humphries
    10 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    In order to talk about technology and tension, I need to tell you a little story. Back in 2007 I was trying to figure out where to go to Bible college. I knew God wanted me to go, and I figured it made sense to study where others I respected had studied. At the time I went to a charismatic church (no longer do for theological reasons), so I decided to go to either Rhema University, Oral Roberts University, or Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS is not charismatic-affiliated). God had different plans, and I ended up at Columbia International University (great school). While there I…

    Gotham’s last few episodes have been high-powered, hardcore fun, and “Penguin’s Umbrella” is no exception. We’ve nearly reached the midpoint of the season, and it’s becoming all too clear that the villains are in the lead. With three mob bosses grappling for the upper hand, a snitch intent on taking all of them down, and a detective attempting to solve a murder and escape from being murdered, Gotham’s a little busy these days. That doesn’t mean, however, that new faces won’t get introduced. The introduction of Victor Zsasz in…
  • Why Do People Drive Slower When They’re on the Phone?

    3 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    The title of this article sounds like a completely self-explanatory and ridiculous question, doesn’t it? “Uh, they’re distracted, duh, we all know that. Laws are passed around that idea.” It’s true, that’s become a staple of not only driving-related legislation but driving-related thought as it relates to technology and its impact. But I’d like to dive a little deeper into the question and propose something different. Before we get into all that, I need to explain something: like most minds, my mind tries to organize the information it’s presented with on a day-to-day basis.

    The name John Arbuckle probably doesn’t ring a bell today. A ghost from Brooklyn’s past, Arbuckle made his name during the surge of commerce and bootstrapping immigrants in the late 1800s that shaped and changed Brooklyn (and the rest of the US), but his legacy was buried as the nature of American business shifted. Yet this coffee mogul was the first to commercially roast and produce coffee in America – right here in Brooklyn at 25 Jay St..

He didn’t seem to care about the onstage performers, or the large audience. Donning a crème Member’s Only jacket and dirt-stained jeans, he leaned against a cane held in his left hand while he rubbed the stubble on his cheeks with his right. “What good am I here?” he said.

They coordinate with efficient desperation, clearly outclassed by the sheer bulk and size of the creature. Alongside the giant creature come a wave of opposing forces, whose dark clothing and glowing red eyes promise death. The protagonist takes to an aerial perch, firing into the approaching enemies. Without warning, one of the warriors is flung from the shoulders of the giant mech into the protagonist. This ends catastrophically for both, their…

    Played on Wii (Also available on Wii U) There is an inherent charm to nostalgia, one that grows fonder as time passes since its last indulgence. It can be hard not to fall into the trappings of fond memories that surround the tropes and topics of childhood, and apply a rose-tint to anything that carry the pleasant memories attached to the sights, sounds, and thoughts that pervaded endlessly during fond playtimes. Happy memories rarely mesh well with stark reality, and sometimes going back to playing favored older games can sometimes feel like betraying a memory, as though intending to tarnish…

Miles Teller plays Andrew, a first-year drummer at a prestigious music conservatory who wants to become the greatest drummer since Buddy Rich. But in order to do that, he has to go through the asshole conductor of the school’s best jazz band, Terrence Fletcher (played by J.K. Simmons).

Here I look at the other role which it attempts to fill, and why it isn’t doing police procedural properly.

    Why the police-led Batman prequel fails on both counts. When I found out that FOX was going to create a TV series chronicling the early career of detective James Gordon in Gotham City, I was initially sort of okay with it. With DC already enjoying a lot of success through Smallville and Arrow, and The Flash into its first season, TV is the one place in which Marvel is forced to play catch-up. And while Agents of SHIELD took a good few episodes of its first season to really settle into a good groove – and did it ever after the initial teething problems – I thought we’d be safe with a…
