    Welcome to the most convoluted CD review you will ever read. In an interview conducted by his son Nick for Esquire magazine, Kiss bassist Gene Simmons said in early September, “Rock is finally dead.” He did not say it with bravado either; uncharacteristic of the figure he has cut for four decades. The majority of his ire was directed at the file-sharing and download culture which is making it impossible for new bands to exist, and the end of the supportive record label system. At one point, such a methodology subsidized prestige acts that did not have massive sales numbers, and…

    There are two uses for the eight-film Steven Spielberg: Director’s Collection now on Blu-ray. One: holiday gifts. Assuming you already own Jaws (1975), E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Jurassic Park (1993), and The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)–and what self-respecting movie fan doesn’t own at least the first three?–you can give your old discs to friends and family and keep the ones in this nicely packaged box set, as the transfers and content are exactly the same. Heck, throw in a Blu-ray player if they don’t own one; they’re pretty cheap to come by…
  • ALBUM REVIEW: The Melvins – Hold It In

    Justin Vellucci
    21 Oct 2014 | 7:26 pm
    The latest Ipecac Records serving by proto-punk/metal-heads/Gods of Thunder The Melvins — this one titled, counter-intuitively, Hold It In — sounds like another experiment from the California-by-way-of-Washington grunge founders, and supplies even more ammunition to the argument that the group is becoming, at least in how structure influences sound, less of a garage-rock outfit and more of a revolving-door collective. Yes, yes, this is the group’s first proper release as a quartet since 2010’s The Bride Screamed Murder – but it’s not what you think. Gone missing (again) is…
  • CD Review: Prodigal, “Electric Eye 30th Anniversary Edition”

    Dw. Dunphy
    21 Oct 2014 | 10:23 am
    The headline for this article is misleading. There is no way that I could pretend this is a bias-free, completely objective analysis of the 30th anniversary edition of Electric Eye, the second album from Ohio’s Prodigal from 1984. I wrote the essay in the CD’s packaging, after all. That is a poor recommendation to impartiality. However, when the band’s guitarist Rick Fields contacted me to ask me if I would do it, there was no doubt in my mind. Prodigal had the unenviable lot of being a great band in not so great times, in a genre that often rejected “greatness”…

What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes,” joked Gunn. “In really horribly, brutal fashion.” He then went on to confirm that all five of the original Guardians would indeed be returning for round two, while revealing that there will also be some new team members along for the ride. “I spent all day on 1 August, the day the first movie was…
  • Warner moves The Conjuring 2 to 2016

    20 Oct 2014 | 11:03 pm
    Warner has delayed The Conjuring 2 until 2016, pushing it back from its initial Halloween 2015 release slot to make room for a currently untitled horror project. The studio has previously been remarkably bullish regarding the series, having begun development on a sequel before the first film had even been released, only to see that confidence rewarded by a $300 million take worldwide. That first film was followed by recent spin-off, Annabelle, which has also performed extremely strongly, hitting $166 million worldwide in its first few weeks of release. Perhaps Warner are now wary of franchise…

Roth wrote the original scare-fest in tandem with Randy Pearlstein, and according to Deadline, the new film will be a kind of “re-staging”, with director Travis Zariwny charged with creating something new from the exact same source material.

    21 Oct 2014 | 10:48 am
    Six percent of U.S. children and youth missed a day of school over the course of a year because they were the victim of violence or abuse at school.

  • Digital native fallacy: Teachers still know better when it comes to using technology

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:49 am
    A new study looks at how teachers and students use technology inside and outside the classroom. It turns out that members of today's younger Net Generation aren't more tech savvy than their teachers just because they were born into a world full of computers. 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.
  • Using feminist theory to understand male rape

    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.
  • Reminding people of their religious belief system reduces hostility, study shows

    15 Oct 2014 | 1:52 pm
    New research may shed some light on religion's actual influence on believers -- and the news is positive. Researchers hypothesized that being reminded of religious beliefs would normally promote less hostile reactions to the kinds of threats in everyday life that usually heighten hostility. Across nine different experiments with 910 participants, the results consistently supported the hypothesis for Christians, Jews, Muslims and Hindus alike. The religiously reminded were significantly less hostile.

  • Why Women Stopped Coding in the '80s

    22 Oct 2014 | 5:37 am
    In 1984, the biggest movies at the box office were Ghostbusters and Footloose, while "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Relax" topped the music charts. It was entertainment's heyday, but when it came to girls in computer science, 1984 was the year women stopped coding. What the heck happened? NPR's Planet Money investigated and discovered that the stereotypes in movies and TV triggered a serious engineering gender imbalance that prevails to this day. The movies in theaters and ads on TV established a singular identity for programmers: nerdy, young males. Just look at this Toys 'R' Us ad for…

  • Holiday Gift Idea: GoPro HERO

    First Class Fashionista
    14 Oct 2014 | 2:14 pm
    As a final hurrah to summer 2014, Labor Day weekend I hiked to the top of Chautauqua Park Trailhead #1 on Saturday and finished off the holiday celebration with a 38 mile bike ride to Eldorado Springs, both located in Boulder, CO. I’m not sure if I’m what you would refer to as an adrenaline junkie or a thrill-seeker, but I do love outdoor adventure and last summer I wished I had a GoPro to capture it all. At times it was too dangerous to take pictures or video…I remember asking during my Eldorado Springs’ homestretch. Of course, though, it couldn’t be done. My…

    Dear Men, Have you ever asked yourselves the question: What does my facial hair say about me? Whether you’re going on a first date or have an important interview or meeting…you can’t help but wonder what will they think of my facial hair? Well we at FCF have the answers to your burning questions.

    10 Oct 2014 | 10:46 am
    Last Sunday, I was privy to be able to attend the Great Bridal Expo here in Denver at the Marriott City Center. Before the uproar of questions starts- no, I’m not engaged! It was for my work outside of FCF, and to get a better feel of what brides are looking for and what is popular as far as the industry in Colorado. It was definitely a new experience for me, a little bit out of the comfort zone, but if you know a bride-to-be (or you are one!) I highly recommend attending shows such as this one to check out your local vendors, venues and general options. Although I am not getting…

    It’s officially fall now and everyone seems to be looking for a way to transform their style, and we mustn’t forget how important hair is in the way of revamping a look (FCF Blogger Serah Styles is an amazing hair chameleon. I swear. Changing her hair color, changes up her whole look.). After a long summer of fun in the sun and hitting the gym with my hair tied-up in a ponytail almost every day, I try to do a little extra to transform my hair for the weekends. I start with a shine boosting shampoo and an intensive restorative conditioner. Here’s one of my before and after…

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:00 pm
    Brad Pitt’s new WWII tank drama Fury has arrived, and reminded us all of other films featuring tanks.  Most enthusiasts agree such films as The Battle of the Bulge, Patton and the original Sahara with Humphrey Bogart are the standard-bearers of the subgenre, the tank movies against which all subsequent works like the WWII drama Kelly’s Heroes, the father/son ’80s comedy Tank and the Matthew McConaughey remake of Sahara are compared. While I decide if Fury warrants a big-screen theatrical viewing versus a wait-for-the-Blu-ray approach, here are some other suggestions--some lesser known…

They live a typical American suburbia life, if not, a little loveless and erring on the side of pale and almost too composed. Unsurprisingly, this family is a ticking bomb packaged in disguise, unbeknownst to everyone, even 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…

But in the background, Melissa McBride’s long-suffering Carol Peletier has been cultivating a quiet strength.

    I think I went through summer searching for the perfect co-ordinate set and then now I find one for Autumn! 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…

    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…

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…

Yet, it still draws your attention. David Fincher’s adaptation of the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn is anything but ordinary with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike starring as Nick and Amy Dunne, a married couple about to celebrate their fifth anniversary. The first portion of the film shows two sides of the marriage. Amy’s storybook fairytale as told in a diary she kept, and Nick’s…

    Incredible footage from Hollywood’s Walk of Fame showing Chewbacca breaking up a fight between Mr Incredible and Batgirl has been captured by a crew from FilmOn.com, owned by billionaire entrepreneur Alki David. 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…

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…

    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…

      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.

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.

    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…

    I think I know why I enjoy watching Gotham so much. “Balloonman” clarified some things for me that had remained nebulous while watching the previous episodes. “Balloonman,” on the surface, focuses on Jim Gordon’s guilt over Mario Pepper’s death and Penguin’s disappearance. He is unsure about how to proceed in seeking the truth while in the pay of a corrupt government. With the help of Selina Kyle, he comes a step closer to uncovering the identity of the Waynes’ killer, and with Bullock’s help, he discovers the identity of the Balloonman, a…

    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.

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.

Whether this strategy enables Deezer and Tidal to get a substantial customer base is yet to be determined.

    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.

    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…

    This is the best World War II film to come out in years. David Ayer has been a mixed bag as a writer and director. After coming into the limelight as a screenwriter for original Fast and Furious film and Training Day, both in 2001, he quickly moved onto both writing and directing. He’s had solid flicks like Harsh Times and End of Watch, and train wrecks such as Street Kings and Sabotage. Thankfully Fury falls into the former set of films, not only being Ayer’s best film, but an excellent depiction of World War II. Fury follows the crew of a tank during the late days of World War…

Kill The Messenger focuses on Renner’s character, journalist Gary Webb, as he stumbles into and subsequently investigates cocaine trafficking of the 1980s.

    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…

    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,…
