  • ALBUM REVIEW: A Winged Victory For The Sullen – Atomos

    Justin Vellucci
    23 Oct 2014 | 7:58 am
    When you listen to A Winged Victory For The Sullen’s new record, titled Atomos, it’s difficult not to think about the musicality and inherent narratives of human breathing. True, there is something airy and organic, intensely human even, to the ambient textures and swelling tides on the Kranky release, the duo’s second full-length offering. But it’s something more substantive and illustrative than that. The music, which echoes Arvo Part, is informed by the art of drones and it’s no surprise AWVFTS is half comprised of Stars of the Lid’s Adam Wiltzie. But the new record is a voyeur…

    The chilly winds of autumn howl across the plains and carry the distant sound of a train whistle, heralding the arrival of the carnival show. It’s an occasion for gaiety, breaking up the monotony of a small-town October with bright lights, fabulous freaks, and the merry clamor of the calliope. But there’s something lurking in the musty shadows of the canvas tents — something unearthly and strange. Sometimes it is a benevolent force, come to show us glimpses of our true selves in the bewildering reflections of the mirror maze. But more often, it is something dark. Something hungry.

THR has published a summary of Warner's superhero plans, and has dropped an interesting tidbit in relation to the Wonder Woman solo movie, starring Gal Gadot.

Potential candidates for the project? Well it's all guesswork at this stage, but we'd love to see…

In fact, if it weren't for the coaxing and support of their educators, many students would never use their electronic devices for more than playing games or listening to music, say experts.

    17 Oct 2014 | 8:11 am
    Decades of feminist research have framed rape and sexual assault as a ‘women’s issue’, leaving little room for the experiences of male victims. But a new study suggests that feminist theory, with its focus on the gendered nature of rape, can also help us understand the stigmas, social constructions and realities associated with male rape.
  • Major benefits for students who attend live theater, study finds

    16 Oct 2014 | 1:59 pm
    Field trips to live theater enhance literary knowledge, tolerance, and empathy among students, according to a study. The research team found that reading and watching movies of Hamlet and A Christmas Carol could not account for the increase in knowledge experienced by students who attended live performances of the plays. Students who attended live performances of the play also scored higher on the study's tolerance measure than the control group by a moderately large margin and were better able to recognize and appreciate what other people think and feel.

The most honest thing in this story was the fact that Shaq is funnier than everyone. (Also, was anyone else expecting Shaq to be like, “Oh, you want to see it?

    23 Oct 2014 | 1:22 pm
    Oh, The Walking Dead. You are so good at making me angry. That’s pretty much the highest praise I can muster for this hit AMC television show. On top of that, our first attempt to podcast about The Walking Dead Season 5 had to be tossed out because an error with voice capture made Cherlynn and I sound faint and echoey. So when we went for round two–the results of which you now have before you–I was all ready to jump right in. During the course of our discussion–or perhaps debate is a more apt term this time around–we referenced several articles that I want to…

That’s saying a movie is as good as the Godfather. If it doesn’t live up to the hype then there’s no salvaging it. Every flaw will be glaring and painful.

    Ms. Scripter
    23 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    The year was 1991 when Lisa Stansfield debuted her second album entitled Real Love. The British singer took the world by storm with her debut album in 1989, but I love this particular song. “All Woman” was co-written by Stansfield, Ian Devaney, and Andy Morris. Stansfield brought great class, elegance and a profound songwriting ability that continues to be on the extinction list. “All Woman” debuted at #1 on the U.S. R&B charts. Stansfield second album didn’t do as well as her first, but the beautiful ballad of “All Woman” made up for it.

Sandwiches, cakes, tea and champagne is a yes, yes, yes to me! Danny and I had the pleasure of being invited along to the Café Royal on Regent Street to try their High Society tea. Afternoon Tea at the Café Royal feels like it should always come with an invitation as when you walk into the Oscar Wilde Bar it is so grand and breathtaking you sort of feel like you should be in a ballgown.

As seen carried by celebs such as Alexa Chung and Rihanna, who in one night was carrying two, ok that’s just greedy. Then there was the phone cover imitations this year that every fashionista wanted to have. Well the bag not only was available in Chanel stores only but also came with a pretty hefty price tag!

I was in Debenhams on Oxford Street when I saw this H! by Henry Holland set on the mannequin and I just knew we would be a perfect match. I rushed to the changing room to try it on and instantly loved it. I loved the navy and red together and the print is stand-out but not over the top. They also work as great separates, so I can see myself getting lots of wear out of the skirt and then the jumper with jeans. The jumper has buttons all up the back and it so cosy and warm on. It’s…

    After trying out the Philips Wet & Dry Epilator, I was excited to then try out their new compact home IPL hair removal system which promises pain-free hair removal. The Philips Lumea SC1981 is a compact beauty gadget that uses IPL technology in the comfort of your own home. So what is IPL? It stands for intense pulsed light and it is what is normally used in salons when you go for laser hair removal. The light stimulates the hair follicle to go into a resting phase and as a consequence the hair sheds naturally until hair regrowth is prohibited. Philips previously had the Lumea Precision…

After the release of an epilogue to the seventh book in the beloved series, Rowling is at it again with a new twist to a back story. Instead of focusing on Harry Potter, Ron, and Hermione, this story will focus on Dolores Umbridge. This interesting twist to the rest of the stories will give fans a look into an interesting back story about a very important enemy of Harry Potter. Dolores Umbridge was malicious, cruel and only the second character to leave a permanent scar…

    Oscar de la Renta, renowned fashion icon and legend, has passed away Monday, October 20. For years, de la Renta has been designing couture looks for women, specifically every first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy as well as stars such as Oprah Winfrey and Anne Hathaway. After his first fashion assignment to design a gown for the daughter of the U.S. Ambassador to Spain, he knew his calling and focused solely on fashion. Working in Spain, Paris and eventually New York, he had worldwide experience and respect. In 1965, the Oscar de la Renta brand was created and made a huge mark on the fashion…

Banks‘ debut album was among the most anticipated new releases for 2014 as she faces the challenge of not getting lost in the shuffle. The first thing that jumps out about Goddess is the incredible amount of deep synths that pulsate throughout. Although sometimes overdone resulting in blending between tracks, particularly in the middle of the record which…
  • No Platinum albums in 2014 – not so fast!

    The subject of low record sales isn’t news anymore. In fact, it’s such a non-news issue that it’s become the standard mindset for music media. Whenever it does become a topic of discussion, it is due to a new angle depicting the same armageddon of the music industry. This week, it was widely reported that 2014 has become the first year no albums have been certified platinum since the RIAA began issuing platinum certifications in 1976. Basically, album sales have dropped so much that no albums have sold a million copies. But it isn’t really that simple, nor is it really…

Some years, he releases more than one. 2014 was one of those years, where he headed up the score for Norwegian indie film The Sleepwalker, directed by his (now ex-)wife Mona, and just recently he released his seventh proper album Please – which is centred around why she’s the ‘ex’. Please is a divorce album. Songs that acknowledge the change – pre…

The film is centred around the rekindled relationship of twins Milo (Bill Hader) and Maggie (Kristen Wiig). One is that they haven’t spoken in ten years and when they’re brought back together, they actually make a great pair who seem to really enjoy each other’s company. The other, and most obvious, is that they never would have crossed paths again if it weren’t for Milo’s suicide attempt, which ironically prevented Maggie from…

For many spectators it may have at first looked like a staged battle between the superheroes, as the Walk of Fame is known for its great array of actors dressed as fictional characters- who offer tourists a chance to take a photo with them for a sum of money. But as the battle took off it became obvious it was more than just showboating, and that the characters were involved a…

It was an inevitable move to catch up with a nation of cord cutters and a course that was set when the Supreme Court showed the world the current broadcast system had failed when it gave its decision on FilmOn Networks and Aereo’s business models in ABC vs. Aereo in May 2014.

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…

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.

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…

    What do you do when you are yanked from deep, lilting Urdu into a rainy Sunday? The first What do you do when you spend a languid afternoon, a stretched late afternoon, an extended early evening and a chatty, natty late evening discussing possibilities and the present; only to end up in a dark cinema hall with three other people? The second What do you do when you can’t find your first chance? The third What do you do when you realise you can’t much forgive yourself for not quite becoming what you could have become? The many What do you do when you are told that you can make love to words…

    Cape Town Sharks from above – Drone Video Eric Cheng recently visited Cape Town and captured this incredible footage of the Cape Town and its surrounding area, including Lion’s Head, Table Mountain, Cape Point, Hout Bay, Simon’s Town, and Seal Island. The footage includes great white sharks from above at Seal Island, an aggregation of spotted gully sharks / sharptooth houndshark (Triakis megalopterus) in the surf near Cape Point in Table Mountain National Park, and a brown fur seal surfing in the waves.

      Watch the first trailer for the next season of ‘The Walking Dead’ Things have never really been going well on The Walking Dead, but the core crew only appears more broken and battered than ever in the first trailer for Season 5. The trailer teases the group’s attempts to get to DC and — hopefully — deliver a cure for the zombifying infection. There’s always been a lot standing in their way, and it all looks even more gruesome and horrifying in this coming season. The show will come back on the air with new episodes starting October 12th.

      Flood Surfing in Switzerland Flood Surfing is a new one for us here at Killcool but then again we understand that being landlocked sucks for surfers, obviously. The desire to catch a wave must drive an avid surfer to extrme and it seems the Swiss are no different. Check out this awesome video shot at the Thur river in Switzerland when it’s in full flood. Flood surfing certainly looks rather insane but we want to try, this has been added to the bucket list!   The post Flood Surfing appeared first on Killcool.

All without spending a single dime on admission and above all without being accredited in anyway either.

  • “Kickaround Nixon” is a wild romp through ’80s subculture

    Stephen Wilds
    22 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    I’ve just finished Kickaround Nixon, a novel that caused me to pause before turning off my e-reader, leaving me to contemplate a lot about storytelling, video games, and life. In this writing, I wanted to take some time to pen my thoughts on a work I have heard about from the author for years. In the interest of full disclosure, I have been friends with Em Lockaby since my early years in college, but that should not deter anyone from taking my words here as utmost sincerity. Em may be a friend, but he has always been tough when critiquing my writing, so it’s now time to return the favor.

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:05 am
    We’ve all seen them. Those on-screen romances that lead us on an agonizingly slow burn for seven, eight, or nine seasons. As much as some of us might love a good romance, it’s deeply irritating to be forced to watch a “will-they-won’t-they” for years on end. Is there another possibility? Is there another way to watch a relationship unfold without all the drama that too often solely rotates on a merry-go-round of cheating, jealousy, heartbreak, and death? I submit the following: platonic relationships. “Too boring!” you say? What about every single…

    While Gotham‘s “Arkham” had several parts that I enjoyed, I am beginning to wonder if the show will move past the few erroneous steps it has made in regards to the layout of the show and characters. I still think it’s one of the best dramatic pilots of the season, but if things don’t get straightened out we’re going to hit a saggy middle, and these characters do not deserve that. They have so much more to offer. For instance, I am continually amazed and delighted by Robin Lord Taylor’s portrayal of Oswald Cobblepot, the young man who eventually…

    The Lefsetz Letter comes by email and is an analysis on music, entertainment and technology. Lefsetz wrote a short history on how the last 20 years in film/TV and music has put us squarely into the rental/streaming of our entertainment vs. owning our music, movies and TV shows. Although Beats Music is not mentioned, his post, ‘Netflix vs. Spotify’ lays out how visual entertainment has been training customers for decades to pay a monthly subscription to “rent” film/TV while music stayed with the ‘own-it’ model well into the 21st century. Lefsetz describes…

Conveniently, payments were processed through your AT&T phone bill. The offering ended today (see AT&T chat thread below). Beats Music no longer offers a subscription through AT&T. The Beats Music website no longer has an option to subscribe through AT&T and it appears the 5 account Family Plan for $14.99 is no longer available either. The current Beats Music offering is $9.99/month or $99.99/year.

Whether this strategy enables Deezer and Tidal to get a substantial customer base is yet to be determined. Yet offering much higher quality audio might nudge the existing services (Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, etc.) to start moving toward streaming higher quality audio too. This would be a big victory for the…

It’s covered in mirrors, which makes it the perfect metaphor for the company, one former employee says; no matter where you go, the glare is in your eyes.

    When Denise Hebesberger hired Henry as a temporary worker at the Haus der Barmherzigkeit, a home for elderly and chronically ill people in Vienna, she worried about prejudice. Given the advanced age of many of the residents, “we assumed maybe there [would be] some fears about interacting with him,” she says, but “observational data and interviews showed people are really quite curious and open-minded.” Henry is a Scitos A5 mobile service robot produced by Metralabs, a German firm. The machine costs about €30,000, less than the median annual income for men in Austria.

    From its onset, the digital age has come with promises that it would reshape our world.  Several decades after the introduction of the personal computer and more than a decade after the widespread adoption of the internet, we can confidently say that it has, but not necessarily in the ways we had hoped. The tech industry has always been tinged with some residual aura of the California counterculture that Silicon Valley first grew out of – anti-authoritarianism, social liberalism, an emphasis on personal expression and fulfillment – but instead of those ideas being tied to specific…

    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.

    Played on Vita (Also available on PS3) Narratives often start at an exploration of humanity, peering expectantly into the mind. Despite gaming mostly comes from works of fiction, their purposes are predominantly lie human exploration. They seek to delve into the psychologies, explore avenues of potential situations, and examine parts of ourselves we aren’t always proud of. However, that means our narratives are likewise beholden to them. Chained to the limitations that the human audience behind it can also empathize with the on-going events.

    Is it a surprise that Amazon finally has their first critically acclaimed “TV” show? Nope. It was only a matter of time. But it’s definitely a surprise that it has come in the form of Transparent. Who would’ve thought a show about a family that comes apart at the seams when their father announces he has become “trans” would make such big waves for Amazon? It’s about as far from a safe bet as one can get. So, beyond all of the big hoopla of another great show coming from a new content creator/distributor, what makes the show so great? First off, it’s messy. The show is. The…

I’m a huge fan of the both Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra TV shows, and, like all fans, have been aching for a quality game that lets us dive into a playground of element bending.

A studio known for it’s fast-paced, precise action games would be making Korra a video game…

    Jason Reitman’s latest film is the worst of 2014. Men, Women & Children is a film based off of Chad Kultgen’s novel of the same name, and follows the intertwined lives of a group of people living in Texas. Characters start separate and slowly their actions mesh with other characters, something we’ve seen done (and done a lot better) in films like Crash, Magnolia, or probably most closely, 2012’s Disconnect. Character’s are your average, middle-class white people, each with some form of disturbing issue, often sexual in nature. You have the football star…

Now, a full year later, we finally have our hands-on the North American version of the PlayStation TV. The hardware itself comes in the form of a tiny black box, barely tall enough to allow for 4 ports – USB, Ethernet, HDMI, and Memory Card – to exist on the back of it, plus a small hole for the power adapter. The device is so small that once I had plugged in the power…

I’ve watched it three times now (but to be fair I was taking notes for this article the last two times.) So what did we make of the Age of Ultron trailer?

    Destructive Creations creates something destructive…to my attention span. “My genocide crusade begins here…” says the lead character of upcoming PC game Hatred, as he gears up with guns, grenades and a knife before opening his front door and unloading clips into his enemies. That’s a fine way to kick off a game – your hero, surrounded, realises that the only way out is to blast his way out against the armed forces outside to complete his holy mission – but the armed forces aren’t armed. They’re not even forces. They’re innocent passers-by. And that is just the beginning of…
  • The 1984 equivalent of John Romero’s Daikatana poster

    Imagine Software’s about to make you their bitch…with Psyclapse and Bandersnatch. When John Romero left id software in 1996, the world was his oyster. He’d co-created Doom and Quake, two pioneering video games, and was inundated with offers to continue his good work. Together with another ex-id employee, Tom Hall, he founded Ion Storm and set to work on what would eventually become Daikatana. As laid out in the excellent book Masters of Doom, the production process was brutal because of the pressure on Romero to deliver another game-changing…erm, game. As Daikatana missed its…

    Examining the excessive use of Hulk Hogan’s creative control in WWF and WCW. Hulk Hogan is a wrestling legend, no two ways about it. When he defeated The Iron Sheik for his first WWF Championship in 1984, plans were already in motion to make the charismatic Hogan the face of American wrestling – a plan which came to financial and cultural fruition with the first Wrestlemania in 1985. For the rest of his career, the Hulkster used the fact that he’d single-handedly built Vince McMahon, Jr’s WWF empire to his own ends; helping friends get over at the expense of more talented competitors,…
  • Microsoft buys Minecraft – Part 2

    Will we lose the Minecraft modding community? And can Microsoft be trusted with a truly iconic franchise? Following on from last week’s post, guest writer Anton discusses what Microsoft could feasibly do with their new titan of a gaming property – not to mention the company that made it. A major concern for those who play Minecraft on the PC is the future of third party mod support. There are entire sub communities that don’t even play Vanilla Minecraft anymore, choosing instead to spend their time with one of the countless mods that has popped up during the game’s lifespan.

    I absolutely love Rube Goldberg devices. There’s just something about a causal chain of events that I find fascinating, and none more so perhaps than this one,  a kind of ingenious public service campaign to promote understanding of restless leg syndrome (RLS) in the UK. I have no idea what to do with that piece […](Read more...)The post Restless Leg Syndrome Rube Goldberg Is Awesome! appeared first on SHEA MAGAZINE.
