    Second take? Such a treasure! On Wine Dark Sea, Jolie Holland’s sixth LP, the eclectic singer-songwriter doesn’t just sit at the intersection of blues, soul and folk – she proves she can own it. After the joys of records like Escondida, a true studio-debut gem, or her collaborations with M. Ward and guitarist/sound-assassin Marc Ribot, Holland, she of Vancouver’s The Be Good Tanyas, took a bit of a skewed turn with Wine Dark Sea, out now on ANTI, letting go of some of the art-fixated, mid-century folk – think Americana-by-way-of-Andrew-Bird – in favor of what we’ll call a Blue…

    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. You'll understand more once you see the episode LOL! We also got the Gawker seal of approval (whatever that means) who complimented how Tim and Eric "zeroed in on how we give celebrities a lot of shit for things they have very little control over and also provided the most perfect indictment of…

I’m headed back to RI on Sunday. It’s been a good trip, and I accomplished what I hoped to in terms of the writing, but there’s still a long way to go.

  • CD Review: Various Artists, “Here Comes The Reign Again: The Second British Invasion”

    Dw. Dunphy
    30 Oct 2014 | 4:30 am
    Not to contradict the liner notes in this CD package, but I couldn’t say definitively that the ’80s was the last great pop decade. I can say it was the last really interesting one. From the ’90s onward, pop music would be devoted to types, and from 2005 and after, a very small clique of writers and producers would be behind at least 75% of it — a staggering amount, leading to a homogenization that, while still wildly successful, also has a generic sheen to it. If you isolate ’80s pop down to just what the U.K. was sending over, as a sort of Second British…

    I get an almost perverse level of glee from reading the reviews and meltdowns stemming from the movement known as bro-country. Watching a lover of true country music climb the walls over acts like Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line is, indeed, a form of schadenfreude. Reading the articles wherein fictional accounts of long-dead legends of American music rise from graves to slaughter good ol’ boys in pickup trucks, who are drunkenly trying to peel painted-on jeans off their girls down by the crick at the end of an ol’ dirt road, make me giddy. As a long suffering rock fan who…

    Given that Saul Goodman was often the comic relief in Breaking Bad, particularly as the seasons grew progressively darker, one could be forgiven for assuming that Better Call Saul will be a little lighter in tone than its predecessor. However, according to star Bob Odenkirk, the new show will be far more dramatic in content than expected, with comedy only accounting for a small part of its makeup. "It’s total drama, man," said Odenkirk to THR, before slightly softening his stance. "It’s 85 percent drama, 15 percent comedy.” And with the show set to run in hour-long episodes, Odenkirk is…

    With Michael Keaton making a long-awaited cinematic comeback in the movie Birdman, it’s not totally unrealistic that Hollywood producers would be looking into reprising his role in the Tim Burton classic Beetlejuice. However, this time around, it looks like Burton’s brother Barry is taking over writing and directing duties—and fans should expect Keaton to appear in the sequel, either. However, the casting might actually turn out for the better with Orange Is The New Black actress Natasha Lyonne slated to play the bad-behaving bio-exorcist. Okay, some of Barry’s creative…

Thanks to the glammed-up moms-to-be of the last decade, like Jenna Dewan Tatum, Amber Rose, Kelly Rowland, and Kim and Kourtney of the Kalifornia Kardashians, pregnancy is no longer an excuse to let yourself go.

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook Comes Out as Gay

    Kelly-Schwarze
    30 Oct 2014 | 7:08 am
    In an essay published on Bloomberg Businessweek Thursday, Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly reveals he is gay for the first time. He writes "So let me be clear: I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me." He has been hesitant to address his sexuality, Cook says in the letter, because privacy is something he cherishes, especially in the very public role of Apple CEO. He is publicly acknowledging his sexual orientation now hoping that his own experience and public platform can help others facing discrimination. "So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay…

    We're excited for the Apple Watch to finally launch in 2015 - but not as excited as the guy who made the video below. Developer Lucas Menge loved the wearable tech's interface so much that he perfectly re-created the crazy nontraditional homescreen interface of the Apple Watch for the iPhone! Lucas watched demos of the device from Apple's September event (like ours), and then painfully reproduced what he saw from scratch. As someone who has worn the Apple Watch and seen it up close, I can say that this concept is pretty damn close to the real thing. Lucas's video reminds us of how…

    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…

    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 an industrial construction company like Turner Industries comes in and tries to build a landfill it is a lot more complex than just coming in and digging a big…

    The recent news of accused murderer from Gary, Indiana Daren Deon Vann (43) is now labeled as a suspected serial killer. When Vann was revealed, the comments on social media appear to have people believe that Black serial killers are so rare or don’t exist at all. That is hardly the case, in fact; there are a lot of Black serial killers who share almost the same type of victims as Vann. First, let’s see how Vann was caught to get the wheels in motion to call him a possible serial killer: Vann, 43, ordered a prostitute through the backpage.com site serving Chicago and arranged a Friday…

    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.

That one moment in starstruck heaven resulted in Genesha Bradley being placed on unpaid suspension and may lose her job. Bradley’s employers might not have known if the video of the starstruck moment didn’t go viral, thanks in part to TMZ. The result of that infraction caused Bradley to regret placing that shuttle bus in park and getting off with stars in her eyes to interact and take a photo with…

    19 Aug 2014 | 12:59 pm
     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…

    There’s a reason why Guardians of the Galaxy has received four and a half gold stars on both rotten tomatoes’ and IMDb’s websites. Described as the best blockbuster of the summer it is not only hilariously funny but comes with a fantastic soundtrack and some of the most amusing characters ever seen in a superhero movie. 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…

    “Heroes don’t look like they used to, they look like you do…”Today most of us woke up to the news that Robin Williams had died in the early hours of this morning. 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.

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.

    K.M. Cone
    29 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    “Spirit of the Goat” follows up Gotham’s turning point episode, “The Viper” and proves my belief in the fact that this is not a procedural crime drama. It’s a serialized whodunit, full of red herrings, murky intentions, and a growing sense of foreboding. I think “Spirit of the Goat” is my favorite episode yet, which is probably due in part to my love of Ben Edlund’s writing (he and I share a love of all things oddball). We’re given a smorgasbord of treats in “Spirit of the Goat,” including fantastic moments with Edward…

      So, this is the way I felt by the end of Watch Dogs; it isn’t such a bad game, but I stopped enjoying it halfway through due to its narrative issues. Mostly, I tried my best to get along with Aiden Pierce—this title’s main character—, but the game mechanics and narrative just broke anything that could lead me to believe this could actually be a real human being. When you start the game, Aiden is a criminal getting his way at stealing money from rich people’s bank accounts, then something goes wrong while doing some high-profile theft, and as a result he becomes the target…

    “Viper” is a turning point for FOX’s Gotham. I wouldn’t go so far as to say ‘the’ turning point, as we aren’t as near to the middle of the series as we should be for such a statement, but this is most certainly a turning point for Gotham. “Viper” addressed some things I was concerned about in my last review. I thought about the show quite a bit this week in order to see if I could understand the other issues I was having with the show. First, I think watching “Viper” made something click in my brain. Gotham isn’t a crime…

    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.

    Here is a rundown of what the streaming services have been up to lately: Beats Music — No news directly from Beats or Apple – lots of speculation. Reports say Beats may be combined with iTunes Radio in 2015. It’s also reported they are negotiating with music companies to lower the monthly subscription to $4.99. Tidal — Meanwhile, Tidal is going the other way with price. They launched in the U.S. with a $19.99 per month subscription price, for lossless ‘high fidelity’ streaming music.

    27 Oct 2014 | 8:23 pm
    Once again, the media has worked itself up into a frenzy speculating on what Apple will do with Beats Music. It all emanates from a single line in a Wall Street Journal article, “Apple is rebuilding Beats Music and plans to relaunch it next year as part of iTunes, according to a person familiar with the matter.” Hardly a substantive, definitive statement – and a no comment from Apple. A more interesting part of the article talks about the world market. Curiously, it states that in Japan there is “little streaming business to speak of.” And Japan is the second…

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.

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.

    Researchers have found one more incomplete and unsatisfying explanation for why LGBT people don’t have equal rights: Non-LGBT people just don’t think same-sex couples are “as in love” as heterosexual ones. A study out of Indiana University found that sexual orientation weighs heavily on how loving couples are perceived to be by other people, who tend to place opposite-sex partnerships on a pedestal. This perception, in turn, affects how many formal and informal rights LGBT couples “deserve” as far as the general public is concerned, according to study author Long Doan. “If…

    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 didn’t seem to care about the onstage performers, or the large audience.

  • Are Movies Becoming Glorified Video Games?

    Jack Tremper
    28 Oct 2014 | 10:24 am
    Is it just me or does it seem like a lot of movies have started to steal their ideas from video games? Now, I’m not talking about movies like Transformers where the plots are incomprehensible, nonsensical messes and most of the movie is an overblown computer animated action scene. I’m referring to how a lot of action plots are structured similarly to a video game. This thought was prompted by the recently released John Wick (It’s wonderful. Read Scott’s review). Like many action movie heroes, Wick (played by Keanu Reeves) goes through progressively more intense gun battles to get to…

The first was the multi-platform The Legend of Korra, and we’ve now got Bayonetta 2, an exclusive title for the Wii U. I was really excited to play Bayonetta 2, especially after the bad taste left by Korra. So did Platinum Games at least give us one solid action to enjoy? Hell yea they did. When the original Bayonetta arrived for PS3 and Xbox 360 a few years back, I really enjoyed it. It was fast, over-the-top, and a lot of fun. These types of games…

Keanu has always been a relaxed, surfer feeling kind of dude that is simply fun to watch on screen. Especially when he’s killing people. Point Break, The Matrix, Speed -some of my favorite action movies have all starred Keanu Reeves. And now with John Wick, we not only get the first quality film from Keanu since Constantine, but also one of the best action flicks of his career. John Wick tells the story of the…

    Played on Vita (Also available on PS3) Narratives often start at an exploration of humanity, peering expectantly into the mind. Despite that gaming mostly comes from works of fiction, their purposes predominantly lie in 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 of the human audience behind it, able to empathize with the on-going events.

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?

    In the final part of his examination of Mojang’s sale to Microsoft, Anton takes in the geek culture reaction. Read part one here. Read part two here. Now that the business side of it is all discussed, I feel it is time to move on to talking about what may be the most important part of the whole equation. People sometimes overreact. Hair-trigger geeks tend to overreact slightly more than average. I think that this is because they feel almost totally invested in the idea/show/film/comic/game/character/book, and have attached some part of themselves to it. If that changes, they change.

    Thoughts on the first, second and third viewings of the new Marvel Studios film trailer, coming May 2015. You’ve watched the trailer already. Of course you have. 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? Well first off, it looks brilliant; of course it does, it’s a) a Marvel Studios movie, and b) a film directed by Joss “Is Boss” Whedon. Naturally, May 2015 can’t come soon enough for a lot of us. Because while it looks as outstanding as ever, it’s also laying down…
  • My hatred for the Hatred video game 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…
  • Hulk Hogan and Creative Control

    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,…
