So here it goes, with me offering my positive take (with reservations) and…

    Filmmaker James Payne has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund Far Western, “a music-fueled, character-driven documentary film about Japan’s history and obsession with American country music.” I’ve written before about how the Japanese can assimilate various aspects of Western culture, and give them a unique spin that, in some ways, makes their versions superior to the original. How strange would it be if that most prototypical of American musical genres turns out to be most celebrated in a distinctly non-Western culture? And speaking of…

Yates and Tardo would later form Insides and release the criminally unknown Euphoria in 1993. But as Earwig, they created the template that they mastered on Euphoria: Delicate, spidery guitar melodies and drum programming that create a lush-yet-unsettling backdrop for Yates’ tales of romantic escapades and disillusionment.

Yesterday, the Intertubes were all abuzz with news that a blimp bearing the number “2014” and the Aphex Twin logo was floating over London.

And it did so despite not featuring any of Marvel’s more well-known heroes (e.g., Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk). Indeed, the title is almost a second tier property, at least in terms of popularity, and yet it has received almost universal acclaim. (The movie currently enjoys a 92% rating on RottenTomatoes.) So, despite being a lesser-known title with no famous characters, why has…

The, “self proclaimed piece of shit who didn’t finish high school”‘s production however does not match his self given title. After linking over…
  • The Most Intricate Movement You’ve Never Heard Of: Goth Money

    1 Sep 2014 | 8:58 am
    While seemingly identical dance tracks are getting continuously pumped into the veins of the media and radio, a movement of much complexity and rooted deep with culture stemming from hip-hop of the late 90′s and early 2000′s has been boiling in the self proclaimed land of, “Flexico”, which will be identified in the interview to come.

    31 Aug 2014 | 10:02 am
    Over the past few decades the area that Americans have put aside to use as trash reservoirs has increased many times over. We are still far behind pretty much every industrialized or western country on our recycling rates and have adopted a more is more attitude to the amount of things that we buy. All of these landfills have a lot of considerations that need to be taken into account in order to build them and then maintain them.

    When you are making the decision to purchase a domain name, it is important to truly understand the domain name registration process. After all, unlike with a physical office, when you purchase a domain name from a domain name registrant, it is not as if you are purchasing a piece of land that you will then own for extended periods of time. Instead, you are leasing the domain name, in a sense, and pay a fee for it until your contract expires or you decide to discontinue the website With these details, it is important to understand all the ins and outs of working with a certified domain name…

    Moving can be very stressful. In fact, I think that I read somewhere that moving is one of the top five things that cause people the most stress. It is up there with losing a spouse and losing your job. There are so many factors that go in to the moving process that make it so stressful. From packing and cleaning to unpacking and cleaning to recruiting friends to help you move. After so many moves it becomes hard to find friends that are willing to help you. Most of the time people will say that they will help you move and then when the day actually comes they find some whacky excuse like,…
  • Top 5 reasons to choose Devaney Dentistry

    The competition in the dental industry can be tough, especially as more and more dentists are leaving school and choosing to set up their own practices rather than join a dental practice that is already in existence and already has a full client or patient load. This can often add to confusion for those who are looking for the right dentist for them or for those who are new to town or need a dentist for a new issue that they have never dealt with before. There may be sources and resources out there to help find the right dentist, but in order to shorten the search time I have listed below the…

She and her green clad dancers slithered across stage, twerking and grinding and singing her deliciously satirical “Anaconda” (at 2:00). Get More: 2014 VMA, Artists.MTV, Music, Jessie J. It wasn’t shots fired–that happened when Miley Cyrus finger banged a backup dancer with a foam finger. This was shots returned, and with sharpshooter accuracy.

    Expendabelles, the lady spinoff of Expendables, has always been a pipe dream despite being the biggest no brainer film concept ever. I mean, this would require a studio to pay a number of well-known actresses to act. And do action. And probably wear white tank tops. What do you think this is? 1992? Hollywood can’t do that! The world world as we know it would cease to exist. Sigourney Weaver either understood that very real threat to humanity or she didn’t want to be in a spinoff of a Dolph Ludgren picture. She’s declined an offer to appear in Expendabelles. Which begs a new…

    In 2007, Dan Bush co-directed the horror classic The Signal. The Signal is a film told in three parts and from three different perspectives. It is the story of a mysterious transmission that turns people into killers. Initially, The Signal began as part of pub film competition in East Atlanta where Dan Bush and co-directors, Dave Bruckner and Jacob Gentry, met. It would eventually evolve into a feature film project that Magnolia Pictures would distribute. In 2009, it was nominated for the John Cassavetes Award at the Independent Spirit Awards.

  • Can Hip-Hop Artists Create A New Version of “Self Destruction”?

    Ms. Scripter
    1 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    OPINION-The horrific murder of nine-year-old Antonio Smith in Chicago sometime last week, weighed heavy on my mind. The outrage was very minimal, but despite what the media has written about one’s lack of outrage, the community is very upset and concerned about this unsolved murder. Smith was found shot multiple times in the backyard of a residence in the Grand Crossing neighborhood in Chicago. What kind of sick demented person would shoot a 9 year old to death? Then I think about all the other heinous crimes involving the killing of children in this world, some by our own government…
  • Old School Video of the Week: KRS-One – “Sound of Da Police”

    The year was 1993 when KRS-One released the legendary track, “Sound of Da Police” off his album entitled Return of the Boom Rap. It’s eerie how the lyrics KRS formulated back then, continues to resonate in today’s police interactions with a few citizens preferably Black and Latino citizens. That’s evident with the recent cases of police brutality that has lead to the deaths of many Black men and women. How many times, does one have to continue to voice their displeasure when some officers abuse their power, and then the families of the victims have to beg for…

    As one has been quite aware by now, I am not a fan of marches/protests. I find them ineffective unless economic boycotts are involved, and voter registration drives are included across the nation – geared toward the oppressed, which are Black and Latinos. Neither economic boycotts and voter registration drives in the urban community have taken place, which is why we continue to see zero results. A march in Staten Island led by the Rev. Al Sharpton concerning the death of Eric Garner by the NYPD took placed this past Sat, Aug 23rd 2014. Many people turned out to show support for Garner,…

    I’m a big supporter of economic boycotts, when injustices take place within the Black community. There are some people that look at us as a joke, when all we do is march up and down blocks when something horrendous as when police shoot and kill unarmed Black women and Black men. With the latest incident concerning Michael Brown, who was shot and killed in St. Louis this gave a lot of people to dismiss the notion of more marching and focus on economic boycotts. I’m a great supporter of economic boycotts, which I have been advocating for a long time. If one does not believe that…

    One of the main things I was looking forward to seeing in Barcelona was the Sagrada Familia building. We had booked tickets for our second day and I was so, so glad we had. When we got to the Basílica, there was a queue right around it, it’s pretty much the longest queue I had ever seen. So we walked smugly past with our time allocated ticket to the main entrance and were let in straight away! Climbing the steps, the first thing we did was take a step back and just look up at the amazing building, it has such an amazing structure and is currently under construction. I thought the…

We decided to try out a restaurant I had seen featured on many Barcelona sites and also had been recommended to me for some authentic tapas, which was Tapas 24. Tapas 24 was so good that it deserves a post to itself and we also ended up here twice in a 3 day trip, so that pretty much speaks for itself. The restaurant is owned by renowned Catalonian chef Carles Abellan who is the owner of his own Michelin star restaurant, however this is…

    As the days become shorter and the crisp air arises in the morning, we slowly sense the ending of summer. The changing of the leaves, football, and school beginning are around the corner. But before we give up a summer of delight and fun there’s still time to take advantage of the time of warmth left. Here are the top things you need to do at the end of your summer.

    12 Aug 2014 | 12:29 pm
    Not growing up in a family that camped, I never had any motivation to hit the nation’s campgrounds to see what they had to offer. I was always of the mindset of, “That’s why there are hotels, right?” Over the years I camped with some friends and my parents bought a camper, though it always seemed like a big pain to hook up and set up a fifth wheel, and the prices weren’t all that great either. $40 per night to park my vehicle? What is this, parking in Chicago? Anyhow, the past couple of years I’ve gained a new appreciation of camping through what’s…
  • RIP Robin Williams

    12 Aug 2014 | 7:33 am
    As celebrities and fans around the world mourn the death of comedian and actor Robin Williams, it is important to take a step back and talk about depression. Williams’s death proves how difficult depression, which is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States, can be. Depression is often misunderstood and confused with merely being sad, but it is much bigger than that. Here are some facts about depression: Experiencing the five of the following symptoms for more than two weeks are signs of depression according to the Illinois Department of Public Health: Sad, anxious, or…

You never know, maybe in the midst of the summer’s hot sun, World Cup fever, and NBA free agency fireworks, you have forgotten about America’s past, present, and future time. So get those tailgates down, put on a baggy jersey, and jump in a pile of fall leaves because football is back. Tailgating: There’s no better transition from summer cookouts on the porch to grilling out at a tailgate. It’s an American tradition and served best in the parking lots, golf…

    Boyhood, starring Ellar Coltrane as Mason, along with Patricia Arquette and Ethan HawkeSometimes the only difference between a good movie and a great movie is in how you feel when it’s over. Not only how you feel about just the movie but life in general. A great movie is able to somehow tie itself into your own life and speak to you, give you something to relate to, or provide some new and meaningful perspective. To say Boyhood has accomplished those attributes would be a fair statement. The film, directed by Richard Linklater, was created over the course of 12 years as little bits were…

Even though I’ve since forgotten most of the details, including what grade I was even in when I read it, I’ve remembered others. The utopian society, the lack of colour, the escape. Upon hearing about the movie adaptation of it, I thought it was brilliant to be able to re-experience it again. We…

The album is one Taylor is calling her “first pop album”, pretty much sealing the deal on her departure for country music – for now. Taylor’s move from country to pop has been gradual since her first crossover hit Teardrops On My Guitar in 2006.

    Jason Mraz and Raining Jane collaborate for Jason’s fifth album YES!An acoustic album from Jason Mraz isn’t really that big a stretch from his standard recordings as he’s always been pretty mellow. What makes YES! different from his previous albums is how much the focus is on him, his guitar and the involvement of Raining Jane, an all-female group who co-wrote the album and provide background vocals and instrumentation throughout. YES! may be credited solely as a Jason Mraz album but for all intents and purposes, it is a collaborative effort with Raining Jane. They first…

From the suggestion of the turtles’ alien background, to their new look, to the casting of Megan Fox as April O’Neil, to Bay’s involvement post-Transformers, TMNT faced a near-impossible uphill battle. The turtles have undergone a renaissance recently since Nickelodeon’s takeover of the rights in 2010, with several new comic…

His Fox unit has just been slapped with a lawsuit by Hologram USA, and another billionaire, Alki David, for patent theft. And with Homer Simpson at the heart of it, its sure to catch the public’s attention.

    FilmOn Networks fought back in New York federal court this week against CBS and the other networks over their request for attorney fees in the copyright suit in which regular network ally Judge Naomi Buchwald found the internet TV provider in “contempt.” Attorney Ryan Baker of Baker Marquart LLP argued that the networks failed to meet with FilmOn Networks before seeking a contempt order and therefore should not be eligible to recoup its fees.

     I recently watched an interview with J.K. Rowling which took place in 1998; she had just published her first Harry Potter book. 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…

Initial findings suggest that the cause of death was suicide due to asphyxia. I don’t usually feel the need to comment on celebrity deaths, whilst every death is sad, and tragic in some of the recent losses that the celebrity world has had to come to terms with. I never really felt like my life would be affected. I appreciated their work I would notice and miss their presence on some of my favourite shows.

You could see it as the real-time life story it promotes itself as, a unique, psychological and philosophical exploration of the ups and downs of readjustment when growing up and getting older. Alternatively, you could just shrug your shoulders and dismiss it is as “another coming of age flick” with a gimmick, a showcase for pretentious, self-consciously artsy natter. It’s a familiar trend in Linklater’s…

    the amazin’ amazon ————— Amazon has forever changed the way people shop online, but it wasn’t always the juggernaut that it is today. In fact, once upon a time it was just a tiny startup with a big vision. So, how did it end up as the giant online retailer that it is now? It’s hard to say, but one thing founder Jeff Bezos was very intentional about was how he hired for the company. In fact, in his 1998 letter to shareholders, just four years after Amazon was founded, Bezos wrote, “It would be impossible to produce results in an environment as dynamic…

I think there are a few very good reasons to check it out: Google put around $500 million into marketing the Moto X.

I don’t always like her – or what I know about her, anyway – as a person, as a human being. I’ve written in the past about the personal struggle I face when it comes to separating artists who act in a manner contrary to how I’d like them to – and she definitely falls into that category – from their art.

I must also add that it’s one of my all-time least favorite Wu-Tang records, and, at the time it was released, was the worst thing from any Clan member to date. The album features no production from any Wu affiliated artists, and only two brief appearances from Wu-Tang rappers other than Raekwon – Method Man and Masta Killa appear on one track each. The most disappointing aspect of Immobilarity was that it was the follow-up to one of the best Wu records…

    ‘50s Sock Hop’ is todays quirky playlist from Beats Music. It comes from the Beats Oldies genre. Chubby Checker, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley and more all represented.

  • Google Android and Apple Dominate Smartphone Platforms; Microsoft & Blackberry Lag Far Behind

    27 Aug 2014 | 10:26 pm
    When an internet company, an app, or any new tech business becomes dominant, it is hard to imagine their decline. Seeing the new comScore report about smartphone platforms gives a sobering reality-check for any tech company. The chart shows Smartphone platforms are dominated by Android and Apple. Astonishingly, Microsoft and Blackberry are not even close — at least 40 percentage points lower. That is not competitive, that’s a joke. The story here is that continuous and smart innovation within the context of popular culture is mandatory for any tech company to keep marketshare. It…

  • Friday Quirky Playlist

    22 Aug 2014 | 1:11 am
    ‘Orbital Glitch’ is todays quirky playlist from Beats Music. It comes from the Beats Experimental genre. These are abstract compositions that incorporate crackles, pulses, pings and jagged swells atop an atmospheric soundscape; songs definitely not constructed with a verse and chorus roadmap… Listen to the Friday quirky playlist ‘Orbital Glitch‘ In case you seek more, Beats Music offers up ‘Orbital Glitch, vol. 2‘ also.   Every Friday I’ll seek out a quirky playlist – something that intrigues or dumbfounds; a playlist that is multiple degrees off-center.

  • People Of The Internet. Think Before You Share.

    1 Sep 2014 | 8:45 am
    “I still love you, I’m just disappointed.” But please. Stop. Think about what you are doing! I don’t think you are stupid (most of the time), you just need to stop being so lazy! You are sharing crap online and I wish you wouldn’t do it. Let me be clear — I love a cat GIF as much as the next man, and I totally understand the value of social media (without twitter I wouldn’t have ended up with my current day job) BUT, and here comes the important bit, the vast majority of what we post, share, like and comment on is complete and utter garbage. At a high level social content…
  • Russia And Ukraine Seem Closer Than Ever To Direct Combat

    31 Aug 2014 | 8:45 am
    Only yesterday, Russian president Vladimir Putin seemed to be effectively waving the white flag and signaling that he was prepared to step back from a war footing in Ukraine. Now, Russia and Ukraine appear again to be teetering on the verge of direct combat. In an Aug. 14 speech in Crimea, Putin sounded conciliatory, saying that he intended to stand up for Russia but “not fence it off from the outside world. We need to consolidate and mobilize, but not for war or any kind of confrontation.” Meanwhile, he dispatched a 275-vehicle convoy of what Russian officials identified as…
  • The Working Class Is Sinking And Dragging Walmart Down With It

    30 Aug 2014 | 8:45 am
    Business continues to disappoint at Walmart’s U.S. locations. The big-box retailer reported on Thursday that sales at existing stores were flat in the latest quarter after declining for the previous five. It said traffic dipped 1.1 percent (though customers who made it in chose to spend slightly more) and cut its full-year earnings outlook on higher-than-expected health care costs and company spending on e-commerce. Walmart has now spent months explaining away the poor performance of its U.S. division. In the first quarter it blamed the weather; in Q4 2013 it cited cuts to…
  • Goodbye To A Humble Scoring Machine

    29 Aug 2014 | 8:45 am
    Miroslav Klose will never score another goal for Germany. The only person who could make that statement definitive was Klose himself, and on Monday, one month after breaking the all-time World Cup scoring record, he did precisely that. “Lifting the trophy in Brazil was the fulfillment of a childhood dream for me,” he said. “I had a unique and wonderful time with the Nationalmannschaft and enjoyed many unforgettable moments,” he went on. “I cannot think of a better time to bring the international chapter of my career to a close.” And with that farewell, posted on the German…
  • How High-End Juices Extract Money From Consumers

    28 Aug 2014 | 8:45 am
    I usually make my coffee at home. Otherwise, I resort to the machine in the nearest office kitchen that produces terrible espresso from those hermetically sealed ground-coffee pods. But every once in a while I yield to absurd Midtown Manhattan coffee prices and buy a delicious, extortionate latte. When I went to Dean & DeLuca last week, I spotted “cold pressed juice.” The 16-ounce bottle listed its ingredients: kale, apple, mint, lemon and ginger. I had never purchased one of these juices before, but enough bickering trend pieces have been written about the stupidity or sanctity…

    The Dossier

  • Founders Films: Downloaded

    28 Aug 2014 | 8:18 am
    The drama inherent to the world of tech startups has recently proven irresistible to Hollywood, with shows like Silicon Valley and Halt and Catch Fire being pushed heavily on the small screen and various movies mining the territory as well. The highest profile film in the nascent genre is, of course, The Social Network, a good film to be sure, but perhaps not very helpful in understanding our current moment, since its makers are more invested in finding the timeless aspects of the Facebook struggle, somewhat misleadingly shoehorning Zuckerberg into a Greek tragedy. For a more accurate and…
  • Six Questions with Madera Trade, Brooklyn’s Upcycling Heros

    26 Aug 2014 | 12:37 pm
    Hurricane Sandy may have destroyed Rockaway Boardwalk, but the wood there has taken on a new life. During a leisurely afternoon at the Brooklyn Croquet & Hunt Club, we were struck by some sleek croquet mallets, which were shaped from the rubble of the storm. According to Madera Trade, the mallets’ creators, the wood from the boardwalk happens to be particularly good for mallets. The mallets were a special project for Madera, but breathing new life into old wood is what these guys do best. From modern architecture to lawn sports equipment, they have done it all. The founders, Daniel…

  • Founders Inspirations

    21 Aug 2014 | 7:23 am
    To get some perspective on founders, we had to start back in time. Waaay back in time. To when the internet was science fiction and people still lived and worked by candle light (how they did that is beyond us). So we started from the beginning, collecting ideas, inspirations, aspirations, and artifacts along the way. Now, we’re sharing a few of our favorites.

  • Why I Love Diablo 3 Again

    Scott Tremper
    29 Aug 2014 | 10:55 am
    With the release of Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition I’ve found myself once again sucked into the addiction of kill, loot, repeat. And I’m having a blast doing so. I love the Diablo series. I only played a little of the original (I was 8 when it came out…), and got into the sequel far past it’s prime, but I loved it. I’m the type of gamer that really enjoys instant gratification, so constantly leveling up and constantly finding better gear is the perfect type of game for me. It’s why I love Diablo, Borderlands, and am hyped for Destiny next month. So…
  • Review: The November Man

    Scott Tremper
    29 Aug 2014 | 8:27 am
    It’s no surprise we’re getting The November Man in August – the film is pretty undercooked in it’s delivery. Pierce Brosnan will forever be James Bond to me. Goldeneye has so many great memories for me. It was one of the first violent movies I saw as a kid, remains my favorite bond flick and one of my favorite movies overall, and was inspiration for quite possibly the greatest video game ever made. Brosnan as Bond was smooth, suave, and vicious when he needed to be, and this carries over to his role of Peter Devereux in The November Man. And while Brosnan does an…
  • In Theaters – August 29th, 2014

    Scott Tremper
    28 Aug 2014 | 9:11 am
    Pretty sparse week for films – only two wide releases, both of which aren’t getting the best reviews. The November Man From IMDB: An ex-CIA operative is brought back in on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level CIA officials and the Russian president-elect. Our Take: All the ingredients add up to what should be an awesome spy thriller. Reviews, however, say that none of it comes together in an entertaining fashion. Skip It     As Above, So Below From IMDB: Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath…
  • Review: Infamous First Light

    Scott Tremper
    27 Aug 2014 | 10:12 am
    While clearly designed for fans of the Infamous series, First Light is a fantastic stand-alone expansion that provides familiar open-world gameplay with some new tough challenge modes. Building off of the story established in Infamous Second Son, First Light is a $15 campaign addition that serves as a prequel to fill in the story of Fetch, a supporting character of Delsin, who was the lead in Second Son. During the events of Second Son we learned that Fetch has a dark and secret past, and are given clues to a painful history involving her brother as well as long path of problems directly…

    Well this was unexpected. Playing a game about angel, demons, and all things dark and gothic, the last thing you’d expect to see are enemy designs of teddy bears, unicorns and daisies. I stumbled across these the other night in a Nephalem Rift, and was soon beheading all of them. It was a fun surprise for sure. The video is 7 uncut minutes of gameplay, so feel free to rub through the video. Enjoy!
