    A very rich and full debut album from Neulore, a Nashville-based duo, comprised of Adam Agin and William T. Cook.  Newly signed to Island Records’ imprint Chop Shop and touring with Ingrid Michaelson (!), these guys sound like they’re seasoned studio pros with the color and texture of this fine album’s production and the quality of the songwriting.  You may have already heard Neulore and aren’t aware of it; the track “Shadow Of A Man” has been used in ABC Television’s “Grey’s Anatomy” so there’s already been ample exposure…

    Paul Thomas Anderson does Thomas PynchonSo far, all we’ve seen from Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice is the briefest of footage snippets and a couple of stills, including a new one last week. All that changes now, because the first teaser trailer for the film has landed.   Adapted from Thomas Pynchon’s 2009 novel, the film follows private eye Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix), whose life is disrupted by the appearance of his ex-old lady from out of nowhere.

    Anyone going into Neighbors expecting just another Seth Rogen gross-out raunchfest will be surprised; I know I was when I watched it. True, there are plenty of outrageous, ‘R’ rated drug and nudity driven moments throughout the film, but there is also depth to the comedy and a strong theme that runs through the lives of all the characters. It may not seem like it on the surface, but Neighbors offers a lot to think about, once you get past the lactating breasts and dildos. Rogen and the delightful Rose Byrne (who is becoming a secret weapon in every movie she appears in) play young married…

    The next Windows update has finally arrived! Microsoft just announced Windows 10 (apparently Windows 9 was surpassed altogether), a comprehensive operating system that will run across all kinds of devices. From tablets to computers to phones to wearable tech, the latest Windows 10 is designed for compatibility with all screen sizes and is intended be Microsoft's "most comprehensive platform ever."

    IMPORTANT UPDATE. Earlier this month, an 18-year-old student in Schenectady, NY, named Draven Rodriguez wanted to use this photo as his high school yearbook senior portrait. It's him plus his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, plus laser beams plus a close-up of Mr. Bigglesworth's face. Basically, it was perfection - until it managed to get even better.

    If you don't follow 50 Cent on Twitter, you're missing out on a treasure trove of funny and bizarre tweets. The fearless G-Unit leader doesn't hold back when typing out what's on his mind - and the 140-character results have us cracking up. That's why we're a little jealous that we didn't think of turning one of 50 Cent's tweets into a poster like this genius did. Even the rapper's grandma isn't safe from his antics.

  • Shocking Photos Show One of the World's Largest Lakes Disappearing

    Lisette-Mejia
    30 Sep 2014 | 10:10 am
    They're the kind of before-and-after photos you don't want to see. In newly released satellite images, NASA shows how one of the largest lakes in the world - the Aral Sea in Central Asia - is almost entirely dried out. The series of photos has documented the water-level change for 14 years, although NASA says that "at the start of the series in 2000, the lake was already a fraction of its 1960 extent." (The Aral Sea was originally a Soviet Union project to irrigate surrounding lands and turn deserts into crop land.) Part of the water disappearance was caused by a drought from 2005 to 2009,…

But instead of Anderson, creator Jim Hansen deserves the credit for this visually creative show that apparently was filmed in an actual dollhouse in his own…

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.

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…

    I love that a pop star actually aligned herself with feminism. Especially after gals like Katy Perry have edged away from it. Probably because, “People used to think no bras and hairy pits and butch lesbians.*” Unfortunately, the impressionable young minds that will associate feminism and Beyoncé will also associate it with an English-voiced male defining it for them. After 8 minutes of women lying leg-spread on their backs, and twerking, and pole-dancing.** To me, that defines commodity feminism as much as any “Hail to the V” Summer’s Eve ad. Any feminist…

I can’t STAND the main guy ever since we’ve met him and I find it really terrible that all the main characters are white guys. Also I find it really troubling that all the black characters are either criminals or are in subservient roles like assistant/manager/maid etc?

    28 Aug 2014 | 12:23 am
    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…

    eye Weirdos rule the world. Everyone else manages the weirdos. Or, think they do. Between the Weirdos and the Simples, they have complete control over the engine that hums deep inside the navel of the cosmos. Weirdos rule the world. Their strengths are strange. Their weaknesses may be commonplace but they do not really have time for that. They are busy making things. And living the supreme mistake that make them who they are. Their strengths are their biggest, most glorious signatures. The strange scrawls on the brick walls of society that they wake up and find. And realise, it was them that…

    Stewart is hungry. He’s munching on potatoes smothered in chicken fat drippings, sitting by a long metal table that once served as a gurney in the morgue at the Treasure Island Naval Base. It’s a prominent piece of furniture in what will be the kitchen area for Stewart’s new startup. All told, the space is big enough for 75 or so employees, most of whom have yet to be hired. They will theoretically work in this great glass transept at the eastern edge of a massive new building just off of San Francisco’s Third Street. He’s been here for less than a week. chicken fat and the…

    “The Good. The Bad. The Beginning.” This is it, folks. This is the origin story we’ve been waiting for. Not a flashback where we see Bruce Wayne learn the martial arts that will allow him to incapacitate his enemies without having to kill them; not a snippet of storyline where we see his eyes light up as he considers what Wayne Industries could do in furthering his vigilante projects; and not a simple graveside scene where we see the weight of the world descend on Bruce’s shoulders as Alfred wraps his arm around the young boy with a distant, yet protective comfort.

    An old friend has returned to my comic book pile, and I am happy to see her return. A Voice in the Dark is back with a brand new five-part story arc entitled Get Your Gun. This was one of my favorite books in recent memory, and I hated to hear that there were actually some concerns as to whether or not it would be returning, but I am glad to say that Zoey is back and still cutting up the competition. The book opens with a heightened level of urgency. Zoey and someone else are tied up, blood has been shed, and the guns are already out. A few things have changed with the title, but our main…

    “You can’t have organized crime without law and order.” This single sentence encapsulates the dark-and-light battle that has been fought all throughout Gotham. From the depths of the sewer tunnels to the edge of the skyscrapers Gotham is awash in criminal activity and there doesn’t seem to be anyone who can put a stop to it. At the moment, the Gotham pilot is doing well critically but seems to have divided the audience. I have friends who are hooked and friends who are hesitant to jump in because of what they feel is weak writing in the storyline. I confess, I was…

    In February, a pilot for the U. K. budget airline Flybe was attempting a landing in Ireland when his prosthetic arm detached from the yoke of his Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft and he had to engage in some quick maneuvers to avoid a problem. The incident just came to light this week. You might naturally ask yourself, “Why would a pilot with a prosthetic arm be flying a commercial passenger plane in the first place?” The answer is that it isn’t prohibited by aviation authorities, although pilots with disabilities have to go through additional evaluations when being licensed.

Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin continues to insist that Russia has no military presence in Ukraine. The details of Ukrainian military forces’ engagement with separatists are lost in the fog of war.

    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.. For a borough that takes its coffee this seriously, that’s an important piece of history. And whether or not you’ve heard of John Arbuckle,…

He’d started a conversation with me as I stood to the side of a small stage and took pictures of a traditional Kurdish dance ceremony. 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.

    Sibling relationships are weird. I’ve got three brothers. It’s probably because you not only know everything about them while you’re growing up, but also you even understand their relationship with their parents because (surprise!) you come from the same two people. And it’s this idea with Milo and Maggie in the indie drama, The Skeleton Twins. The film opens with Milo (played wonderfully by Bill Hader) attempting to slit his wrists over being dumped by his boyfriend. Meanwhile, Milo’s sister Maggie (Kristen Wiig, also good) is about to overdose on pills when she gets a call from…

    Even though I’m a total sucker for YA novel film, The Maze Runner surprised me as a dark and engaging adaptation. Based off James Dasher’s book of the same name, The Maze Runner is the first film in a planned trilogy. Given the popularity of films like The Hunger Games and Divergent, it’s no surprise that The Maze Runner has found it’s way to the silver screen. The film introduces us to a young man named Thomas (played by Dylan O’Brien) who wakes up in an elevator, with no memories, and arrives in the middle of a small grove-like area, called The Glade.

While most games are in general, pre-scripted and empirical in their events, the perspectives and interpretations players bring will always be unique to that individual play experience. In particular, player moods have a lot to do with how a player experiences a game. Some games willfully manipulate the emotions and moods in order to put the player in a certain frame of mind, while others are more organically evocative, leaving the player to build their impressions as they may.

    Surprisingly harsh and brutal, A Walk Among The Tombstones proves to be an only okay, old-school thriller. Walking into the theater for A Walk Among The Tombstones, I was expecting what the trailers teased – essentially an R-rated version of Taken. And while the film definitely delivers moments like that, I soon realized that the film is much darker and gritty than I originally anticipated. Much, much darker. The film follows retired New York City detective Matt Scudder (played by Liam Neeson) as an “unlicensed” private eye. This essentially means he investigates the cases…

    Will it be Yes or No for Daniel Bryan in 2014? When Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Wrestlemania XXX, fans and pundits alike called it one of the most memorable Wrestlemania moments for years. He even managed to somewhat upstage the ending of The Streak, such was the passion felt by the fans who were ecstatic to see his final victory over the scheming Authority. But when world champion Bryan announced just days later that he needed neck surgery, we faced a long wait to see when he would return.

    Round about the same time I watched Micro Men, I picked up a book called Grand Thieves and Tomb Raiders, which proved to be a compelling account of the story of British computer gaming from bedrooms to boardrooms. Back in the mid-1970s when two chaps from Hornsea (East Coast, represent) were dabbling in the creation of the Multi-User Dungeon – the pre-precursor to what we now know as the MMO – home computing was just getting on its feet as the afore-mentioned Micro Men made their bid to corner the market.

Edmund and Tommy are a couple of guys working on a game called Super Meat Boy. They want to create a game that’s a direct homage to the stuff they grew up…

And don’t forget the Facebook page and Tumblr account, both of which I should probably update more often. Right, I’ll be off for another frustrating round of FTL now. Cheers!
