    When it comes to reality TV, there are plenty of options to choose from. In the U.S., fans have everything from long-running classics, such as America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway, to the new era of celebreality on VH1 with Candidly Nicole and Love & Hip-Hop.

If you can’t get enough of the drama, shows like Geordie Shore and The Real Housewives of Melbourne should be on your to-watch list. The Bachelor Australia While…
  • 11 Albums that are 20 years old

    18 Sep 2014 | 8:40 pm
    20 years ago, I got my first CD player for Christmas and with that, my very first CD. MuchMusic’s Dance Mix ’94. That was 20 years ago… In joining the internet’s neverending quest to make us all feel old, here’s a list of albums that came out 20 years ago that most of us probably owned, wanted to own, or borrowed from a friend to record to a blank cassette. And now for the first time, let’s reminisce together as we realize: Wow! I can’t believe that came out 20 years ago! We’re old!   Bush – Sixteen Stone (released December 6, 1994)…

  • CD REVIEW: The Fletchers, “Reset The Dial”

    22 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    First, I should thank the incredible Cyndi Dawson of The Cynz for having an intuition that I would like this band and their music.  She was/is completely right.  Second, I should thank Gary Kaplan, the main man behind The Fletchers, for taking the time to write and execute a great album and sending it to me as he also thought I’d enjoy it. This new album – the fourth – from New Jersey’s The Fletchers, Reset The Dial, is as fine a rock and roll/power pop album as you’re going to hear this year.  It has every one of the right elements – melodies,…
  • CD Review: Daniel Amos, “Doppelganger Collectors Edition”

    Dw. Dunphy
    22 Sep 2014 | 3:22 am
    In 1983, a record was released that was so far ahead of its time, and so different from what surrounded it, that there were only two ways to go in its regard. You either hid it behind the stacks of Tammy Faye Bakker records (true story!) and prayed nobody would venture farther, or you fell for it sideways. There was no middle path. Make no mistake about it. Daniel Amos’ second effort of the Alarma Chronicles, Doppelganger, was weird. In order to cut through the preconceptions, the clatter, and the propaganda, it had to be. The phrase “wake-up call” is overused, practically…

  • Deadpool movie set to arrive in 2016

    18 Sep 2014 | 11:17 pm
    After years of speculation,  Fox has finally confirmed that a Deadpool movie is officially happening, with Ryan Reynolds to star in the title role. While Reynolds has yet to sign on the dotted line, it is assumed that this will be little more than a formality, with the film set to open in the US on 12 February 2016. Could that non-summer release date point to a more adult take on the superhero genre? It’s something that producer Simon Kinberg had hinted at earlier this year… “It makes sense to me,” says Kinberg. “Genuinely it’s early phases, early days, but if you’re gonna do a…

When she meets and marries Christoph Waltz, he suggests trying to sell the paintings under his name, reasoning that nobody is interested in buying “lady-art”. Sure enough, the paintings are wildly popular, and the money begins to roll in, but Margaret finds that the lie becomes increasingly hard to live with, particularly as it begins to consume her marriage.

  • Fantastic Four delayed until August 2015

    18 Sep 2014 | 10:48 pm
    Fox has decided to push back its Fantastic Four remake until August 2015, taking the slot that the studio had initially reserved for Assassin’s Creed. Fantastic Four had initially been slated to arrive on 16 June 2015, but will now move back a couple of months to open on 7 August 2015 instead. While it isn’t immediately obvious why an August release date would be preferable to a June one, Collider speculates that the huge success of Guardians Of The Galaxy (which opened in August) could be a factor. Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed has been pulled from Fox’s lineup altogether, with a TBD…

  • Narrow focus on physical activity could be ruining kids' playtime

    21 Sep 2014 | 7:36 pm
    While public health authorities focus on the physical activity benefits of active play, a new study reveals that for children, playing has no goal -- it is an end in itself, an activity that is fun, done alone or with friends, and it represents "an opportunity to experience excitement or pleasure, but also to combat boredom, sadness, fear, or loneliness."'By focusing on the physical activity aspect of play, authorities put aside several aspects of play that are beneficial to young people's emotional and social health,' says a professor.

    Star Wars: A New Hope is an epic classic that many can look back on and claim as one of their all-time favorite movies.  Many scenes had little-to-no dialogue, but compensated with thrilling action, sound effects, and one of the most epic scores of all time, thanks to John Williams.  Now, just to show how important John  William’s score IS to the film, YouTubers Auralnauts have taken out the music from the final scene of A New Hope, and replaced it with the types of sounds that WOULD be going on without the soundtrack.  Strap yourself in for two minutes of awkward, folks, CUZ THIS…

     Like many illustrators who have been boxed in by client commissions for many years, I love being able to just let a drawing happen organically!  This is an intuitive and freeing process which allows a creative work to grow pretty much on it's own, guided solely by the instinct of an experienced artist.FLOWERS OF MY HEART is a result of this process. Just starting with the outline of a heart, it grew into a surprising little surreal landscape all on it's own, complete with fantasy flowers, fluffy clouds morphing out of an abstract area of heart "tissue".  When the heart was…

    I got interested in Carousels way back in the eighties.  I was in love with the intricate carvings from the masters like Loofe, Mangels, Illions and, of course, Dentzel, to name just a few.  Here I've taken many of the classics and recreated them with my lovely Prismacolor colored pencils on pastel accented, colored Canson papers.  In some I've made some changes to suit my personal color tastes and preferences, that's what art is all about for me, putting my own creative touch on the world.I think these are beautiful for nurseries, children's rooms and for Carousel collectors.

  • A 7-Day Detox For Your Smartphone Addiction

    We're the first people to joke about being addicted to smartphones, but being too obsessed is unproductive and unhealthy.

As a beauty influencer I was asked to try Hairfinity, a healthy hair complex. Before I said yes, I did my homework. I googled the company website to learn more about the product and what was in it.

    28 Aug 2014 | 11:03 pm
    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…

    Why isn’t James Cameron’s The Abyss as popular or well-known as the Terminator series or Avatar? Daniel D. Snyder thinks it has something to do with The Abyss’ anti-war themes, and that’s a shame: “Cameron's message has been both consistent and valuable, assuming you think its a message worth spreading… Yes, there is a contradiction inherent in making action-packed anti-war films. But if we’re going to have over-the-top blockbusters, we might as well appreciate the ones that preach peace and love. If The Abyss preached it a little too…

    No, not the Earwig from Columbus, Ohio. I’m referring, instead, to the UK’s Earwig, i.e., the trio of Kirsty Yates, Julian Tardo, and Dimitri Voulis. 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.

    Like many of you, I went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy last week. Marvel’s latest comic book movie has certainly struck a chord with moviegoers, grossing over $300 million dollars to date. 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…

  • Landfill construction and maintenance in America

    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 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…

    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…

    The recent trends in office layouts are leaning toward shared spaces.  Not only are they more economically sound for your budding business, but there are a great deal of added bonuses that you might not be aware of.  Companies like Modworks of Denver are providing space suitable for any business just like this. The cost advantages associated with renting a shared office space over a private one are crucial to a growing, expanding, or all together new business.  The rent can be half as much as traditional office spaces, and this rent comes in the form of a membership so you are getting a…

    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,…

    Cherlynn Low
    17 Sep 2014 | 8:51 pm
    This week, for HorrorBelles, we watched the 1922 classic, Nosferatu — a silent film that presents Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula in a way only German Expressionism can. FemPop managing editor and co-founder Alex Cranz guests in this episode to add her very unwanted insight on silent films (because everyone cares). Our biggest conclusion from watching the movie as women born in the 80′s (and 90′s, I’m looking at you, Jill) was that people in the 20′s were fugly. No, our biggest conclusion is that there is a time and place for silent film and German…
  • Joan Rivers Was A Pioneer, But No Feminist Icon

    I didn’t “get” Joan Rivers until I was in my twenties and trolling Youtube watching clips of old comedians doing stand up. Until that point I knew her only as the doll like old lady who delighted in shredding the images of popular stars and was gleefully engaged in a vitriolic one-sided feud with my eternal beloved. Joan Rivers made her living skewering the rest of the world. No one and nothing was off limits. She unleashed insults so homophobic, transphobic, racist and misogynist that Fox News probably thought of making her an anchor. While many, including the old bag…

Wouldn’t that be kind of awesome but also totally suck but mostly be hilarious and a little bit scary maybe? So far as I can tell, that’s the premise of Life After Beth, a new indie zomromcom starring Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan and John C. Reilly, written and directed by Jeff Baena. In all honesty, Cherlynn and I weren’t sure if Life After Beth belonged on our podcast. Do zomromcoms count as horror? (I kind of feel…

I can’t stand a bully, and we need to acknowledge one of the reasons why so many kids in school are participating in the act. More than likely the bully is being bullied or abused by someone at home so they will like to past that aggressive behavior down to an easy target. Another reason is the bully will like to make a name for themselves…

    Follow @For_The_Masses OPINION-Last week was Beyoncé’s birthday and the Beehives, and some of the calmer fans were tweeting birthday wishes to one of their favorite entertainers. I happen to notice the overabundance amount of love Beyoncé was receiving, but I also noticed the shade that was being tossed in the cyber air like a beach umbrella. One tweet in particular peaked my interest: A lot of y’all praising Beyonce on her birthday but her ass was a hella quiet during the Ferguson issues!

  • What I Learned About the Ray Rice Domestic Violence Incident…

    9 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    OPINION-Many are quite aware of NFL player Ray Rice’s released by the Baltimore Ravens and indefinite suspension by the NFL, due to the incident that involved Rice punching his now wife Janay Palmer. We saw partial footage of the video and once again TMZ as sleazy as they are forced the NFL’s hand by releasing more of the video that was inside of the elevator. Before the 2nd part of the video was aired, I felt Rice should have received more than a lousy two-game suspension in the first place. It was an awful decision by NFL commissioner Goodell that has come back to haunt him, and…

St Moriz has a fantastic selection of tanning products including lotions, mousse, instant tans, face tans and bronzers as well to give you that head to toe glow.

Kimbra isn’t a big-time pop star. Therefore she can release something as weird as 90s Music to kick off an album without it being a risky move because she’s still a relatively clean slate.

And where her last album Silhouettes took a step forward in production, allowing a cleaner sound, the fact that The Raven’s Sun was…

Here’s the synopsis: RED BAND SOCIETY is a provocative high school drama told through the eyes of a group of teenagers who meet as patients in a hospital pediatric ward. So my quick review is that it’s not to my tastes. The show is fine. If you like heartwarming, Chicken Soup for the Soul-type of programming, then have at Red Band Society. However, this show is not really along the lines of what I like to see. Even still, there were some things about the show that I think might be rectified as the show goes along. First is…

    I have watched the coverage of the Michael Brown case for the past two weeks, and honestly, I’ve had a hard time wrapping my head around all of the components of the case. This case is one that has a lot of moving parts, more than it probably seems to at the outset. The short response to this case is that it outlines the systemic racism that exists, despite claims of post-racialism, in the United States. I’ll endeavor to break down the points I’ve noticed in this case in a series of blog posts. The first one is: Inherent black fear To me, (and to a lot of people in…

    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…

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.

And in the years before 2001 and Star Wars, Moses Fest was the special effects magilla and we got to stay up way past our bed time because it was all for a good cause (God), so all-in-all it was a real treat.

Dragon Con 2014 managed, somehow, to grow my love of the convention and the shows involved, to the point where I nearly shed tears at the thought of leaving (I did cry in at least one panel).

  • Apple / U2 Controversy With iTunes Users

    18 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Last week I wrote about Apple gifting U2’s new album, Songs Of Innocence, to all their iTunes users. Since then, a controversy has ensued. It appears some people are really really angry about having U2’s album pushed on them (actually into their iTunes purchased tab). It’s unclear to me if most people are mad, or just a small minority of people are angry but yelling the loudest about their Apple/U2 frustration. I’m inclined to say most of the 500 million iTunes users aren’t bothered, don’t care or even know about U2’s album available to them for free.

    When saving for retirement, most people consider all the things they will want to do, e.g. travel, purchase a new car, etc. In today’s ever-changing landscape of retirement, most people have also adjusted their savings portfolio to take into account market volatility and economic uncertainty. But, one very critical piece is often overlooked when building a retirement portfolio – unrealistic explanations. What if You Retired Earlier Than Planned A recent 2014 survey revealed that only 33 percent of workers expect to retire at 65, with 10 percent saying they don’t plan to retire at all.

  • Does Workplace Competition Kill Women’s Creativity?

    19 Sep 2014 | 8:45 am
    According to new study released this week by Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis, competitive workplaces help men thrive, but diminish women’s chance of success. While recent research suggests that women play better in small team environments, boosting group creativity and cooperation, this new study introduces a major caveat: When teams are forced to go head-to-head with one another, women’s creative output goes down. In fact, the more intense the competition, the weaker women perform. “In general, women do much better than men when they are working in a…

  • Brooklyn Favorites, Part II: Brooklyn Roasting Company

    17 Sep 2014 | 12:40 pm
    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,…
  • Brooklyn Favorites, Part I: Grado Labs

    12 Sep 2014 | 10:05 am
      Our Favorite Brooklyn Places At .Bk, Brooklyn’s not just an idea, it’s our home.  Where the company and the Dossier were both born, New York’s biggest borough is the fertile soil where many dreamers, artists, and entrepreneurs plant a flag, leading to a stunning diversity of people and places.  We wanted to share a few of the unique institutions that make this place what it is, starting with a company that bridges the gap between Brooklyn’s industrial past and its bohemian renaissance today. Part I: The Institution, Grado Labs A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of getting to…
  • Us vs. Us

    10 Sep 2014 | 10:24 am
    “I might as well have died in Syria,” Rojdar said in between healthy pulls from a Winston cigarette I’d given him. The smoke wisped between his teeth before he coughed. 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.
  • Founders We Love

    5 Sep 2014 | 11:11 am
    We scoured Brooklyn and beyond to unearth the founders and their stories that inspired .Bk’s first collection. Now that Founders is coming to a close and we begin to plan our next story, we  went back to find these folks. Look familiar? Some of their stories can be found in the Dossier clippings. Others are yet to come. Jonathan Grado, Grado Labs Steven van Wel, Founder of Karma Daniel Stedman, Founder of Northside Media Group Rae Tutera, Founder of the Handsome Butch Ryan Greer, Found of Flux Productions Sarah Johnson, Designer & Founder of Sisoo Adam Saynuk, Co-Founder of Pijon Box…
  • Founders You Should Know: Nikola Tesla

    1 Sep 2014 | 11:42 am
    Nikola Tesla was a badass inventor, tinkerer, and all around genius. For a time, his name was overshadowed by his former boss and foremost competitor, Thomas Edison. But his contributions to the world of science and the modern world as we know it are slowly being recognized for what they are: Revolutionary. We celebrated his birthday last month in Austin with art, science and sick music, but to extend the festivities, here are a few more reasons why you should idolize this man.   He lived in New York. Although an immigrant, Tesla lived and worked in New York City until his death. He knew…

  • Awesome VFX Breakdowns

    Scott Tremper
    18 Sep 2014 | 11:08 am
    I could spend all day watching VFX breakdown videos.Having a background in filmmaking, I’ve dabbled in, and needed to make use of, motion graphics and visual effects regularly. But I still always get a kick out of seeing the work people put into films. Here are a few more recent VFX Breakdowns I really love.   1. Kon-Tiki   2. The Great Gatsby   3. The Wolf of Wall Street   4. Pacific Rim   5. Gravity   6. Sin City   I hope you dug those as much as I do. If you’re looking for more simply Google “VFX Breakdowns”, “Special…
  • Five Shows To Watch This Fall

    Scott Tremper
    17 Sep 2014 | 12:38 pm
    With the fall TV season approaching rapidly, here’s a few shows I’m excited to watch.In fact, a couple shows that would’ve made this list have already begun – the final season of Sons of Anarchy and Boardwalk Empire – so I figured it was time to layout a few shows you should keep your eyes peeled for.   1. Gotham – September 22nd There’s few things in life that I’m a total sucker for. These include comic books and The O.C., and here we have the star of that show leading a new series about Batman’s home city of Gotham, years before the…
  • 2014 Movies To Still Be Excited For

    Scott Tremper
    16 Sep 2014 | 9:53 am
    We’re closing in on the last quarter of the year, but there’s a lot of interesting movies still waiting to be released.I’ve gone through the release calendar of upcoming films, and compiled a list of fifteen that I’m most excited for. Some are blockbusters, some are indies, and some just look like a lot of fun. Without further ado, here’s the list, in order of release:   1. The Guest - September 17th From director Adam Wingard of You’re Next and V/H/S fame, and starring Dan Stevens, formerly of Downton Abbey, The Guest has been making the festival…
  • Impressions: Destiny Week One

    Scott Tremper
    15 Sep 2014 | 10:56 am
    Played on PS4 Now that I’ve put many more hours into Destiny, have I finally fallen in love with it?Nope. While Destiny has a lot of greatness within it, it still feels very empty. A lot has changed since my last post, and at the same time, a lot is disappointingly the same. When I wrote my last post I had reached level 10 of the 20 level cap, all within my first day of gameplay. I’d been nervous that so much of the game was left to be explained, given that I was “halfway” through it, but wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt. Still, I had so many questions…
  • Impressions: Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo

    13 Sep 2014 | 9:43 am
    Played on 3DS Nintendo surprised us all by allowing a limited number of people to download a demo yesterday, and I was lucky enough to be in that batch.A staple for Nintendo since the Nintendo 64 original, Super Smash Bros. is a beloved series that we’ve all been eagerly awaiting to come to the Wii U. When it was finally announced, Nintendo revealed that not only would SSB come to the Wii U, but also to their fantastic handheld system, the 3DS. And now with the launch of the 3DS version less than a month away, and the Wii U edition still without a release date, Nintendo made the…

  • Indie Game: The Movie review

    Vincent Krasauskas
    15 Sep 2014 | 4:43 pm
    Watching Indie Game: The Movie gave me hope that there’s more to gaming than glorified roster updates on FIFA, and bigger guns on Call of Duty releases. It follows three game development companies and their creators at various stages of producing and releasing their independent games, free of creative interference but saddled with financial pressures as they pull all-nighters, fret over marketing and reflect on their experiences. 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…

    Yep, I thought it was about time I stopped sponging retweets off the old A Guide To Geekdom Twitter account, and got myself a new email address. For all things tweety – follow @AlpSig5 And for reviews, feedback and offers of free money, email alphasignalfiveATgmail.com. 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!
  • Worry Wart comic review

    Vincent Krasauskas
    9 Sep 2014 | 6:45 am
    Worry Wart is an autobiographical comic written, drawn by and starring Dani Abram, whose other work Razarhawk has also been featured on this blog. But while the star of that comic, Kitty Hawk, is rather the badass adventurer fighting monsters from inside a robot, this title is something entirely different; an honest and touching look at battling one’s own monsters. Dani was diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder a few years ago, and while she struggled from day to day between treatments and juggling her work and social lives she also drew a comic diary to keep track of the biggest…
  • BBC Micro Men – TV Review

    Vincent Krasauskas
    7 Sep 2014 | 9:04 am
    The somewhat overly-dramatised story of Sinclair and Acorn Computers in the 1980s, starring Alexander Armstrong and Martin Freeman. It’s an amazing thing, technology. As I discovered that I could sync up my Galaxy S3 mobile phone with the YouTube app on my XBox 360 to make searching for videos a much simpler experience, it’s interesting that I did all this in order to watch a docu-drama about the birth of the affordable home computer in Britain during the early 1980s. Micro Men was a programme first shown on BBC Four in 2009 about the battle between two British companies to dominate the…
  • My Influential 15 Video Games

    Vincent Krasauskas
    2 Sep 2014 | 8:43 am
    In which I make a list of 15 lifelong gaming inspirations. Only 15. I was taking a stroll along the interwebs earlier this week when I discovered The Influential 15 listed by Isey at ihaspc, and decided to try and formulate my own list of the 15 video games which had the most impact on my life. One of the few rules specifically states that I can’t take too long figuring it out. But think about it: only 15 games? Sadly, I broke that rule by a good hour or so as I tried to jog my memory by googling and youtubing various sources. Although I was happy with my original 15, a cursory bit of…
