    There's a new addition to the top of Reddit's homepage: trending subreddits. It's so small that - like some of Reddit's most incredible little-but-growing communities - you might not have noticed it. The "front page of the Internet" is calling attention to its fast-developing forums, hoping that their reach will spread as fast as some of the most popular subreddits. AskReddit and IAMA have well over a million subscribers each. Today's trending subreddits are /r/minimalism, /r/oddlysatisfying, /r/showerthoughts, /r/JapaneseGameShows, and /r/h1z1.

    The Lone Bellow’s self-titled debut was one of the best-albums of 2013. A near-perfect blend of emotional folk-rock songs and gorgeous, soaring three-part harmonies, the group have returned with the follow-up, “Then Came the Morning,” which arrives on Jan. 27 (iTunes). On the surface, very little has changed about the group. Zach Williams is still singing his heart out, with Kanene Pipkin and Brian Elmquist lifting him up. But here, producer Aaron Dessner (the National) has fleshed out their sound with keyboards, horns and/or strings on most songs. This approach comes with its own set…

    It’s hard to believe We Only Said operates nearly 4,100 miles outside Louisville, once- and always-home of post-rock icons Slint and Rodan. They just sound so downright Louisvillian. But so it goes for the reigning post-rock champions of Rennes, France. The group – whose second full-length, Boring Pools, was released by Les Disques Normal earlier this month – is just the answer for people who have been jonesing for glassy guitars and oft-kilter time signatures, for example, during the long, sad musical absence of Jeff Mueller. But to say We Only Said is a carbon copy of Louisville…

    I don’t know if Peter Buck, the fellow who played guitar in that band from Athens, Georgia, intended his third solo release to be “funny” but damn it, it is.  It’s also rockin’ and great on one side and eerily experimental but no less good on the other.  His no-bullshit approach to recording and releasing his new music is a blast – record it and get it out on vinyl only – and again, he strikes while the iron is hot.  His first two solo LPs were equally enjoyable but this new 4-song 7″ that plays at 33 (oh, how I love saying things like…

    Don't rely on the Academy Awards next month if you are seeking to know whether the movies deemed great today will survive the test of time. According to a new study, the best predictor of a movie's significance is how often a movie is referenced by other movies. In other words, a movie's significance is decided by today's and tomorrow's film directors -- not the critics. This objective method of movie citations is best at predicting greatness, researchers say.

    I’m no Kanye West fan, but his new song with Rihanna entitled “Four Five Seconds” is about to change my mind. The amazing collaboration also features acoustics by Beatles legend Paul McCartney (You know who that is, right?).   Kanye and Rihanna’s voices mesh together in all kinds of wonderfulness, and McCartney’s work on the guitar takes it to the next level. It’s not a typical pop song or club jam, but rather a throwback song to decades gone by. Love it.   Listen to it:     Here’s the “Four Five Seconds” lyrics:  …

Thankfully, an animator named Matt Vescovo felt the same way and got a genius idea: to photobomb the pictures with the help of Photoshop. "I was in a gift shop and I happened to walk by the aisle where they sell picture frames. I remember looking at the stock photo of the smiley family in a loving embrace they had in the frame and thinking to myself. 'They're not a family, they're actors who met 10 minutes before they took this,'" he told BuzzFeed. "It felt a little fake to me and so I…

He’s 5’4 and usually buys a 42 short jacket and 30 in. inseam slacks, which both are often hard to find. On occasion, he gets his suits fitted but OWNONLY has convinced us that there’s a huge difference between a suit that is altered to fit and a suit that is made to fit. “The only thing about a well-fitting suit is you can’t eat,” the hubby jokes happily. Just in time for the New Year, I was presented with an exciting…

There have been a few select items I’ve been crushing on for a while that still have yet to make it to my closet and that’s why I feel compelled to write about them.

    When it comes to conversations/debates about race on social media, interesting things occur when Black intellectuals enter the fiber-optic room. Many of us have been so well-trained by life experiences and through higher learning on how to dissect racism — from its origins on to its constantly evolving iterations over time — that it has become second nature for us to intuitively predict what the apologists and the ignorant are going to spout, regardless of the issue. And so when we are able to respectfully and authoritatively go toe-to-toe with folks, moving with kaleidoscopic…

      In many churches, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish them from nightclubs. The Apostle Paul delivered a New Covenant of Grace command to Believers: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2). When preachers allow elements of the nightclub to become regular parts of their services, they engender a milieu within their Sanctuaries that becomes confused. At one moment, many preachers are passionately advocating holy living;…

The group created a funk disco sound that not only got the party started, but has an infinite legacy as a certified classic. “I Like (What You’re Doing To Me)”, is still sampled to this day in one’s favorite R&B and hip-hop songs.

    The next generation of singer/songwriters is in full force now following the success of artists like Ed Sheeran. Both Hozier and George Ezra are rising talents on the world stage and now Canada has someone jumping on board. My first time hearing Scott Helman was through regular airplay on CBC Radio 2, which picked up on his song Bungalow last fall. His youth oozes through the song but not in a way that makes it juvenile. Instead, it’s a fresh perspective that most songwriters start out with and it’s what makes Scott sound so bright. Bungalow sounds like Mumford & Sons as done…

They become acclaimed when they star someone with the ability to take on such a role the way Benedict Cumberbatch has become Alan Turing, British mathematician and cryptanalyst. The film is set in different periods of Turing’s life. First, we’re introduced to him post-war as a man under suspicion by the police following a break-in at his home. Occasionally there are glimpses into his childhood and the relationship he has with…

The song, Only One, vastly different in sound to his last album Yeezus, is more of a keyboard ballad with Kanye’s autotuned vocals that are reminiscent of the 808s & Heartbreak era. Along with vocals, Paul also shares the writing and production credits. When it debuted at #38 the week after, it was the first time since 1989 a song credited to McCartney made it to the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. Shortly after that, reports surfaced of…

The six tracks that make up slightly less than one-third of the record – 19 tracks! – offer a sample of her upcoming 13th album and judging by their sound, there’s a lot of ground covered. The one thing that’s consistent across the tracks is the solid production. It ranges from fun and adventurous to crisp and clean and, in some cases, is the highlight…

    If you’re a Without a Trace fan, Enrique Murciano should be a familiar face. Murciano who played FBI agent Danny Taylor from 2002 to 2009, recently starred in the hit indie film, WATER & POWER. Backed by an all-star supporting cast, WATER & POWER also includes Emilio Rivera, star of Sons of Anarchy. Shot over 12 extraordinary nights in Los Angeles, the film tells the story of two brothers nicknamed Water & Power by their hard-working father who was an irrigation field man for the famed Department of Water & Power of Los Angeles (LADWP). From the blue-collar housing…
  • Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailers – What’s the Future of the MCU?

    16 Jan 2015 | 12:25 pm
    Marvel has given us several trailers this week, including the teaser for Ant-Man, a film that had been stuck in development hell for nearly a decade. And while fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were excited enough to see that, Marvel then dropped a new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Considering that these are the next two MCU films to come out, together the trailers leave a lot of questions about the direction that the cinematic universe is headed. Unfortunately, the trailers don’t leave equally lasting impressions. First, let’s take a look at the trailer for Ant-Man. The…

  • Review: Gotham: “Rogues’ Gallery”

    K.M. Cone
    14 Jan 2015 | 2:41 pm
    “Rogues’ Gallery” is about chaos and order. It shows how closely knit the two are, interwoven and ever repeating. Order turns into chaos which creates a need for order and rises only to fall into chaos once again. We do not live in a static universe and those of us who choose to participate must pick between them. But which is good, and which is evil? Jim Gordon believes in order. Although he has been demoted to serving in Arkham Asylum, a place steeped in potential chaos, he manages to maintain a sort of order and protect the innocent, both inmate and employee, at least for a…
  • The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies Review – An Ambitious if Unsatisfying Finale

    Caitlin Orr
    6 Jan 2015 | 6:52 am
    Full disclosure – I’ve been a huge fan of all things Middle Earth since I was ten years old and read The Hobbit on a family road trip. I viewed the Lord of the Rings trilogy repeatedly in theaters and devoured any behind-the-scenes and extended material that I could find. Then finally, after years in development limbo, The Hobbit finally went into production, changing from a two-part set into a trilogy along the way. And after the largely successful first film and the long set-up of the second, I went into Battle of the Five Armies prepared for an entertaining payoff. Unfortunately,…

    Apple has acquired U.K. based Semetric which makes Musicmetric. Musicmetric claims to have the “world’s most powerful music analytics dashboard.” Source: TechCrunch Musicmetric enables a “quick overview of how an artist is performing online.” Not limited to streaming services, Facebook and Twitter action only, it also tracks file sharing bit torrent sites, downloads, demographics and sales.

With Spotify recently announcing they are up to 15 million paying subscribers (60 million total users), and Deezer appearing to have a specific plan they are pursuing (previously announcing their U.S. Elite tier and now purchasing Muve Music to gain a foothold in the U.S. market), it is prime time for Beats Music to announce its next phase.

  • Will Streaming Music Enable Record Companies To Break Even?

    2014 statistics for the music business are unsurprising – album sales sunk 11 percent to 257 million units, track sales dropped 12.5 percent to 1.1 billion… On-demand streaming went up 54 percent to 164 billion songs. Billboard offers an alternate interpretation of the continued discrepancy, “That [streaming] increase of 57.5 billion tracks is equivalent to an increase in album sales of 56.1 million units — a number that exceeds the decline in track-equivalent albums (or TEA, a combination of album and track sales) of 47.9 million units.” Will this translate to…

    Admittedly emboldened by painkillers, U2’s lead singer Bono, has written a massive ‘A to Z’ missive about 2014. A few noteworthy insights … Bono says that the reason he respects music streaming services “is that they are slowly turning people who are used to getting their music for-FREE, into paying ten dollars a month for a subscription model.” This fact is often under-publicized by the media and over-looked by artists and music companies when asked about music streaming. Considering the often cited low payouts by streaming services, Bono points out that…

Since Apple purchased Beats in May of 2014, Beats Music has slowly pulled back its aggressive marketing beginnings, splashy PR moves, and continuous posts on social media (particularly Twitter).

    Every semester, Cornell professor Jeff Hancock asks his students to complete an experiment. First, he has them all Google the same search term. Then, he asks each student to turn to the right or left and compare the results on their screens. What his students inevitably find, and what stuns many of them, he says, is how feeding Google an identical phrase can yield wildly different results. “They think your Google search is an objective window into the world,” Hancock told me. “And they don’t have a sense that they’re algorithmically curated.” Daily life…
  • How “Titanic” Is Helping A South Pacific Tribe Understand Why Their Island Is Disappearing

    admin
    23 Jan 2015 | 8:52 am
    It was a slow Sunday morning in January, Papua New Guinea’s rainy season, and the sun was making a rare appearance, lighting up the green and gold island where I was staying. I decided to walk its perimeter, but found it difficult: Large sections of the trail around the island were missing, the land fallen into the waves. Beneath a washed-out bank, on a sandy point with colliding currents, I waded into the water to look for shells. A large, brown bone washed against my calf. At first I thought it belonged to some sort of marine mammal, maybe a dugong, and picked it up. But then I saw what…

    If ever you overhear someone comparing you to a dog, chances are it’s not a compliment. Yes, there’s the famous loyalty of dogs, their unbridled enthusiasm for life, their boundless love and devotion, their fierce protectiveness—qualities that any of us would be lucky to possess at even a modicum of their standard manifestation in the canine. Typically, though, it’s meant as a slight and a reference to some especially animalistic aspect of our four-legged friends. That assertive woman people call a “bitch,” for instance (a term that has always struck me as being dubious; some of…

    Couples that tie the knot with a big wedding have a better chance of finding marital bliss down the road, according to a new report from the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia. Beginning in 2007 and 2008, researchers followed 1,000 Americans ages 18 to 34 who were in a relationship but not married.  The researchers then analyzed the quality of the 418 marriages that occurred over the next five years. The results? Couples with large weddings—defined as having 150 guests or more—experienced happy marriages 47% of the time. Couples whose weddings had fewer than 50…
  • A Secret Code In Google Translate?

    admin

    Earlier this week security reporter Brian Krebs pointed out an odd glitch in Google Translate. It had to do with the service’s treatment of “Lorem Ipsum” placeholder text—the string of Latin words that people use to block out space for text on websites and in other designs before meaningful verbiage is added. For some reason, strings of “Lorem Ipsum” were coming back as “NATO.” In his post, Krebs works through a few examples and posits a few explanations. Perhaps someone is gaming the translate system for fun, or to get around Chinese censorship laws.  Could it be a code…

    Paddington is far better than I would have ever expected it to be. Having spent a handful of years living north of London as a kid, I’m completely familiar with the character of Paddington, a talking bear taken in by a British family, has served as a popular U.K. children’s series for well over fifty years. While there have been cartoon adaptations of the series over the years, this is the first attempt to bring the beloved bear to a live-action form. And it succeeds with flying colors. Just like last years The Lego Movie and Big Hero 6, Paddington is a film aimed at kids, but is…

    America! F— … yeah, you know the rest. When the sniper shots start hitting and the battles grow in intensity, it’s hard not to find yourself a little more patriotic than usual while watching American Sniper. That’s what a war film can do to you, even when it’s set during the recent Iraqi War. This is Clint Eastwood’s third foray into the war film genre and it’s a good one, even if not quite great. And it might be more frustrating that all of the pieces for a spectacular film are all there but not fully explored. American Sniper is a biopic, as the film is about the U.S.

There’s been news of Anderson wanting to adapt Thomas Pynchon’s famous novel for years, but with having never had any of his other works made into films, it seemed like it was just a pipe dream. Yet now, many years later, it’s out and I’ve seen it. Having been a longtime fan P.T.

  • BALLET 422 – DOCUMENTARY REVIEW

    It is one thing to be honored with the privilege of choreographing a piece for the New York City Ballet. It’s another thing to be a member of the corps de ballet – the lowest rank in any company. But for Justin Peck, who has done both, it means having unprecedented access to some of the world’s most elite dancers to inspire his own artistic direction. Tall, slender, and somewhat disarming, the now 27-year old dancer was the subject of a documentary film released in 2014, Ballet 422. It is set to be released in theaters on February 6, 2015. He moves in the studio, on the stage, and…

    Social media is the latest trend for casting campaign models in the fashion industry.

  • A Scientfice Study on the name “Legends Of Eighty Six”

    Max
    18 Dec 2014 | 2:41 am
    I ran an experiment to see if “Legends Of Eighty Six” is the right name to use. I wanted a name people would love, that people would rep and talk about on the forums. So I had decided it would be best to let the people voice their opinions and decide for me. For this experiment, I had a list of names for people to choose from. Needless to say, my ex was shocked that I ran this three day experiment. This experiment incorporated a controlled variable to make sure people were providing a legitimate answer, and weeding out those who didn’t care for it. I told folks “ I’m a…

    Every now and again, I will share with you some poems I have composed. Some will be new works. Many will be older works I have not shared with most people because I did not feel the time was right to share them, until the moment I do. I hope you enjoy them. Please share your thoughts on them with me. Sincerely, Alex A Little Lot faraway, and yet so close, do you know how you make my heart pound and tremble when the light that meets my eyes grace me with the sight of you how invalid it is rendered when i feel the dreaded click that tears you from my gaze, as the sound that hammers down on the…

    So I am going to be contributing to Rysham on Fridays and sometimes on the weekend… Boy are you in for a treat, or trouble, or both. So I figured since you will be hearing from me on at least a weekly basis I should tell you about me so you know where my rants are coming from.

I was a restaurant and hotel manager with different companies in Florida, Arizona, and California. I also worked for a number of years in the airline industry. Currently I am a travel…

    The Bartender will be an episodic story told in weekly installments. The installments will be brief, between 200-400 words each week. <cell phone alarm going off>  I roll over in bed and press the screen to silence the alarm on my phone.  Six o’clock in the morning comes way too fast these days.  “Fuck” I grumble out loud. I get up and stretch, walk over to the dresser where I have a few lines already laid out.  Some people lay out the shirt and tie they are going to wear and set the timer on their coffee machine before going to sleep.  I lay out my goon uniform…

A good-natured and well-met fellow This has been bugging me for a while, but I’ve been trying to come up with a way to say it without sounding like a completely insensitive dick. But then I remembered that I don’t really care if you think I’m a completely insensitive dick, so here goes: Can we stop with the fucking “In Loving Memory” stickers on cars? Seriously. What is this even about? I…
