  • CD Review: Blur, “The Magic Whip”

    Dw. Dunphy
    30 Apr 2015 | 4:31 pm
    If you have heard Parklife, The Great Escape, or Modern Life Is Rubbish, you’ll probably still enjoy the British band Blur’s latest, The Magic Whip, but there will be little denying what a pastiche of themselves the record represents. A lot of the blame is sure to fall on the shoulders of frontman Damon Albarn, and there’s plenty of circumstantial evidence to prop that notion up. Albarn has, over the past couple of decades, spread himself remarkably thin between The Good, The Bad, And The Queen; one solo record and another in preparation; and his biggest success as…
  • Soul Serenade: The 5th Dimension, “One Less Bell To Answer”

    When most discerning music fans are asked to name a classic song by composer Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David, one that perfectly embodies the team’s signature sound, they are inevitably going to choose one of Dionne Warwick’s hits from the ’60s. And why not? “Walk on By,” “Anyone Who Had a Heart,” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose,” are among a number of excellent choices that could be made, and I would find no fault with any of them. But the other day I heard a song on the radio that seemed to have everything anyone could ask for…

    Jeff Beck is my one guitar hero; that’s a known fact.  I have all his albums, right through to Flash and have tried to incorporate some of his sound into my own style but that’s neither here nor there.  Beck, out of the so-called “holy trinity” of guitarists that came out of the glorious Yardbirds, has always been the only one that stood out head and shoulders above the rest for me.  So to find out that his first two Epic singles were being re-issued for Record Store Day by the incredible people at Sundazed Records, I knew this was a no-brainer and a must.  Added…

Compact and easy to install, the system allows you to be independent from the utility grid and provides security as an emergency backup.‘Without a home battery, excess solar energy is often sold to the power company and purchased back in the evening. This mismatch adds demand on power plants and increases carbon emissions. Powerwall bridges this gap between renewable energy…

    Much has been made of the offensively low payouts to artists from streaming services. Kendrick Lamar broke Spotify's single-day streaming record when To Pimp a Butterfly was released, yet those 9.6 million track plays netted him, according to Billboard estimates, a mere $44,160. During a three-month span on Pandora, Pharrell's "Happy" was streamed 43 million times, which led to an estimated $

I found myself questioning my humanity as I walked out of Alex Garland’s Ex Machina. Despite already having heard about the how the movie would end, I still spent most of the movie perched on my seat in suspense. The 108-minute long British science fiction film (in theaters now) had me hooked every thrilling second, wondering how everything would go down.

How did you manage to talk about that one scene for almost an hour?” “Oh sweet summer child,” Alex would respond. “Sweet, sweet summer child.” Yes, Peggy’s appearance in The Winter Soldier — a.k.a that moment where Alex and I both burst into tears in the middle of the crowded theater — is tragically brief.

But now, here we are, and here Peggy is, and there Howard goes, in “Valediction,” the eight and last episode of Agent Carter season one. Alex and I talk narrative pacing, Peggy’s relationships, and how the show commits — or fails to commit — to its portrayal of Peggy’s postwar (and post-Captain America) role. How does the show frame Peggy? And by…

    Peggy Carter is being held back by the Strategic Scientific Reserve. Literally, this time — they have her handcuffed to a chair in the investigation room while outside Leviathan makes its move. As this seventh episode’s title implies, it’s just shy of a regular day at the office for Peggy: Situation Normal: All Fucked Up. Meanwhile, the episode focuses on Peggy’s relationship with the show’s leading laddies: Sousa, Thompson, Dooley and (to a slightly lesser extent) Jarvis. We see how each man has seen Peggy, and we see these men being forced to reconcile their…

And that’s exactly what happens half way through the 6th episode of the season, A Sin to Err. Peggy has to book it and Jarvis and Angie are called upon to help, but not before a sluggish first half that finds us getting a whole lot of insight into Dooley…and Peggy’s anger towards Howard and Jarvis. Jill and I dig deep on a lot of fronts, analyzing Angie’s reaction to Peggy’s secret, the potential of a comic book villain cameo, and…

Rated PG-13, and much too harshly, for a single suggestive commentBy Derrick BangI’m a sucker for romantic fantasies.I may be the only person in the country who fell under the spell of last year’s Winter’s Tale, which remains woefully under-appreciated. Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan still work their magic during the fourth (fifth?) viewing of 1998’s City of Angels, and the 2009 adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife — although not perfect — captivates nonetheless.Despite decades of…

When Zimmerman was arrested, he received so many donations, which allowed him to make bail and the rest of the money assisted toward his defense. Zimmerman received approximately a half million dollars in a very short period, which is the type of money many of us may never see in a lifetime. Ramsey Orta, who filmed the dying moments from beginning to the end of Eric Garner, was later arrested for allegedly carrying a gun. During the stop,…

And now, within 10 years, Miami will again be a completely different monster in its Downtown and Brickell areas. By the video above, you’ll be able to see how the skyline is projected to transform over the next few years with projects in the Overtown area, Brickell and even Watson Island. You can even see the “hideous” Sky Rise and where its projected to tower over the city.

  • Chipotle, Now GMO-Free

    27 Apr 2015 | 11:50 am
    Chipotle has always been known for its healthy ingredients, farming, and being overall environmentally friendly. Today, the company pushed their limits and announced that it has removed all genetically modified organism (GMO) ingredients from its foods. This makes Chipotle the first major restaurant chain to go GMO-free. What Are GMOs Exactly? According to the Food and Drug Administration, GMOs were introduced into our food in the 1990’s. GMOs are plants or animals that have undergone a process where scientists alter their genes with DNA from different plants, viruses, or organisms to…

  • The Newest Hair Trend: Turquoise Mermaid Locks

    17 Apr 2015 | 7:55 am
    One of the newer hair trends that seems to be on every celebrity head is turquoise mermaid locks. The turquoise look is perfect for the warmer seasons and really gives an edge to whomever dons it. Here are some takes on how turquoise is making its way into our everyday hair colors!  All Over Commitment Some have decided to fully commit to the turquoise and have dyed their whole heads. Hilary Duff and Demi Lovato are two great examples of the turquoise movement, with full heads of the color. The completely colored look is edgy and quirky.

  • Robin Schulz – Prayer

    1 May 2015 | 5:36 pm
    When Waves became a hit last year for Mr Probz thanks to a remix by Robin Schulz, I was instantly hooked on the acoustic quality of the song overlaid by a light beat that brought out a bass line but also highlighted the charm of the original. It marked the true culmination of electronica and acoustic genres centred around simplicity. Where most dance remixes replace the authenticity of the originals, Robin Schulz embraces them and simply adds to them without altering the songs themselves. Prayer In C, the next hit with Robin’s name on it, had the same qualities. Originally released in…
  • Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp A Butterfly

    26 Apr 2015 | 8:25 pm
    It’s in the details. The multiple layers, references within references, and the delivery. Kendrick Lamar strikes out on To Pimp A Butterfly by intricately creating a set of poetic, free-flowing, and emotionally charged verses across 79 minutes of recording, all leading to the powerful conclusion of a mock interview with 2Pac and an explanation of the album title. All ears were on Kendrick after good kid, m.A.A.d city, his breakthrough record from 2012, put him on a pedestal with some of the rap’s biggest names. It’s a fact he doesn’t ignore on To Pimp A Butterfly as he…

Moroder, who recorded a monologue for Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories a few years back, is releasing his first record in 30 years later this spring called Dèjá Vu, and the collab with Britney is the third to be heard following recordings with Kylie Minogue and Sia. This new track is a cover of Tom’s Diner by Susanne Vega, originally an a cappella…

    A jump from the sound of Something Corporate‘s pop punk days to the music on lead singer Andrew McMahon’s new project Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness would seem like a jump if not for the three records in between under the moniker Jack’s Mannequin. The pop melodies that sometimes venture into electro with the abundance of keyboards on this record aren’t much of a stretch from Jack’s Mannequin’s last record of power piano pop. If anything, McMahon underwent a much-needed refresh after he expanded on his wondrous record 2005’s Everything In Transit…
  • Vance Joy – Dream Your Life Away

    16 Apr 2015 | 10:39 pm
    Last year, Australian artist Vance Joy rode the wave of new singer/songwriters making their mark on the music world with his first single Riptide, a song about a love interest that is as much a description of himself as it is her. It’s the type of song that, with repeated listens, becomes an attraction in itself and leaves an imprint that lasts. It benefitted from being distinctive enough to stand out, thanks in part to name-dropping Michelle Pfeiffer. It’s a song people associate with whatever they were doing in 2014, a sort of nostalgia catcher that latches itself to either a…

Hot images of the sultry singer were apparently posted on the social media platform last month by somebody claiming to be the star’s ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels – but he has since denied it was him.

    Friends star Matthew Perry has confessed that he inadvertently blasted his neighbours with the sound-track of a porn movie that he watched at home after getting horny on a photo shoot. The 45-year-old star told US talk host Conan O’Brien that he had the urge to spend a little quality time alone with himself and a hot DVD after becoming aroused while being surrounded by swimsuit models. But his plan backfired when he accidentally broadcast the soundtrack of the porn movie on loudspeakers in his backyard! Perry said: “There was no woman in my life so I decided I was going to take…

I was in the chair getting my regular, from my very talented and always outspoken stylist. I have been happy to sit in her northeast DC chair on and off for years. She doesn’t pull punches and is never afraid to express herself while cutting, coloring, and sewing in hair. Also amongst the cast of our panel, was a young woman in graduate school being curled in another stylist’s chair. She happened to be from Ferguson,…
  • A Side Of The Baltimore Protest The Media Failed To Report

    Everybody has a bias. It’s inescapable. The problem with having a bias and being unaware of it, however, is that it infiltrates the facts and twists them into whatever we think is the most important thing to be gleaned from the story. I wrote an article a few weeks back about why my generation prefers late night shows to actual news, and part of that is because of the obvious bias we see in professional news. There’s a lot going on in our world, and much of it goes unnoticed or gets blown out of proportion. Recently, we’ve seen reports about the protests in Baltimore, New York, and…
  • ‘Survivor’ Fan Favorite, Phillip Sheppard, Releases Sci-Fi Thriller

    Phillip Sheppard I distinctly remember the first science fiction novel I ever read. It was Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs and I had to remove the 1970s dustcover featuring a pulpy rendition of a scantily-clad Deja Thoris in order to bring it to school and keep reading. I remember my father pressing his leatherbound copy of the Hitchhiker’s Guide into my pudgy fifth-grader hands and telling me it was required reading. He did the same when I was seventeen, this time gifting me my own copy of Dune. I read it cover to cover during theater class rehearsals, memorizing the Bene Gesserit…

    I consider myself blessed to witness the evolution of video games since their early inception (I had a Pong console tucked away somewhere) up until this era. Back in those days jumping from one console generation to the next one was more than marginally improved graphics; it was everything! I still remember the release of the Super Nintendo back in the early 90’s; it just seemed beyond anything I’d played so far. I actually never had a Super Nintendo of my own, so every time I got to play one with a friend or a relative it felt nothing less than glorious. At the time I couldn’t believe…

    It’s disheartening, isn’t it, to see those you admire on screen become distasteful off it? The entire debacle surrounding the name-calling, sexist, and ableist slurs about Black Widow is more than disappointing – it hurts. It hurts because we’ve looked up to these actors and their characters, and we’ve been let down. The female fans and fans with disabilities who watch these movies have been attacked by these words, and it calls into question the true beliefs held by the actors. If, as they say, they were “just joking” and were doing so because they were tired of the press…

The speculation is that Apple will release their music streaming service, which is based on Beats Music, in June. Assuming subscription only, with no ad-supported tier, European regulators are “said to be concerned that the company will use its size, relationships and influence to persuade labels to abandon free, ad-supported services such as Spotify, which depend on licenses with music companies for their catalogues.” Spotify argues that its free ad-supported…

While we’ve had a few more in recent years, like The Conjouring and Sinister, those are rare in the midst of duds like The Quiet Ones, Ouija, and the newer Paranormal Activity films.

And now he’s back with his latest film, While We’re Young, that, given it’s larger number…

And that’s a lie, of course.” From the Storyline Blog.

Along with Enrico Fermi, Oppenheimer developed the first prototype nuclear weapon that was detonated in the “Trinity” test in Los Alamos, New Mexico on July 16, 1945. Upon seeing the colossal column of fire and resultant mushroom cloud, Oppenheimer quoted […](Read more...)The post Earth Day – Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb appeared first on SHEA MAGAZINE.

  • Artist Spotlight: Blank Range

    29 Apr 2015 | 11:05 am
    On May 4, Blank Range and Two Gallants will be making their way to the Triangle for a Monday night performance at Cat's Cradle.  These rock bands are in the midst of a US tour that includes 28 different stops. The members of Blank Range grew up in the Mid-West, mostly in and around the Chicago suburbs. For different reasons, they found themselves in Nashville a few short years ago. Blank Range's members were originally in two separate bands with only the chief songwriters as differing members. For both practical purposes and mutual respect, they decided to merge the two projects into one…

    The anticipated Amy Winehouse documentary, self-titled AMY, will premiere in the UK this summer. Directed by Asif Kapida, who also directed Senna, this film is also making its debut at the Cannes Film Festival. This documentary is to portray the life of the late singer, who died in 2011 of alcohol poisoning at the young age of 27. The incredibly talented songstress was best known for her raw, unique voice, and became an icon of this generation. This chilling trailer shares quotes that depict Amy’s view on fame, such as “I don’t think I’m gonna be at all famous. I don’t think I…

    Three works presented for your consideration. It may be the time of the year, or the thought of all that had to take place to get me to this point of excitedly awaiting my firstborn, or simple whimsy, but I’m feeling especially mushy today, so consider yourselves warned and read on. Thank you again for your support! Nightingale Weightless, it rises to the heavens A message traveling thousands of miles, audible to he who listens For the sound that goes thumpity-thump-thump and skips a beat when she is near To the heart that roars too faintly for any other to hear But attuned is her ear.
  • Growing Pains – Conclusion

    24 Apr 2015 | 10:17 am
    Well, you knew it had to happen at some point. This is the final installment to this article. Others will take its place, but in the meantime, read on! I suspect my parents had moments when they feared their parentage would be inadequate and fail me. I’m a bit scared, too, that I won’t be a good enough parent; and the kid’s still a month from being born! Maybe every parent who is up to the task of parenting feels this fear. I don’t know. I’m only one person. I guess the easier question is if any parent has ever been 100% confident that he or she would do a perfect job of raising a…
  • Musings on Faith and Existential Depression

    22 Apr 2015 | 6:05 pm
    “I’m going where there’s no depression – to a better land that’s free from care”   Uncle Tupelo hipped me to this song. The ending of this famous lyric of “No Depression In Heaven”, a song attributed to AP Carter of the Carter Family, has the chorus finishing with “I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble, my home’s in heaven – I’m going there.” Carter was definitely inferring about The Great Depression of the U.S. Economy in the 1930’s as well as the standard God-fearing man in a world of sin, yet I always like to look at it from another more modern…

I am here, today, the person those of you have come to know (if you know me), largely due to my parents’ efforts. They paid attention to my development and were active participants in my life. To them, making time to teach me to become a decent adult was not an inconvenience. I never knew they did not have time to contribute to my upbringing, because when they did not have time, they made time. I never knew any different. When our son is born, and throughout his life, I…

    10 Apr 2015 | 9:00 am
    Is TV the way we know it dead? I was reading an article the other day about shows on the “bubble” to be canceled. To my surprise, the main show on there was CBS’s Mothership, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. For the past 15 years CSI has inspired young adults to become forensic experts. The series is amazing, one that has me sitting on the edge of my seat. So why is it possibly leaving? The answer is in the New Television. You see, TV is dead the way we know it. It started with the rise of reality TV. Shows like Survivor and Big Brother, non-scripted shows where…

    I know you think you’ve seen this movie already. By now, we all know the “sports redemption movie”: In the first act, our charismatic underachievers get crushed; in the second act, a gruff-and-tough mentoring character arrives to dish out tough love, enforce doing things “the right way”, and create the film’s dramatic tension between the way things were, and the way things will become; and in the third act, our now mettle-tested heroes face the championship team, win on a final, dramatic, last-second play – usually designed for our least likely hero,…
  • “Avengers: Age of Ultron” Provides Action and Character Development

    John Cook
    1 May 2015 | 2:01 pm
    Avengers: Age of Ultron delivers as a fun action movie and even provides depth and character development. The movie wastes little time delving right into the action and the film is strongest when that is its focus. The battle scenes are well choreographed and engaging without seeming gratuitous or overly drawn out. They also manage to build a sense of danger and suspense where you find yourself fearful that the good guys might not gain an easy victory. I enjoyed the attention spent developing some of the lesser known heroes. Black Widow and Hawkeye in particular are given far more to do this…

    1 May 2015 | 7:37 am
    Every TV series has a natural end point. What happens when a show keeps going beyond the end? Mild spoilers ahead. Grey’s Anatomy: Image provided by imdb/ABC It’s a thought that’s especially pertinent for long-running ABC drama Grey’s Anatomy. In spite of its large ensemble and diverse stories, the crux of Grey’s was always two key relationships of title character Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo). There was her true love/husband Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) and her best friend/spiritual sister Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh). Oh exited the series voluntarily last year after a decade.

    30 Apr 2015 | 7:45 am
    The Green Lantern movie sucks less than its reputation suggests. Image provided by imdb/Warner Bros. Not to suggest that Green Lantern is an especially good movie. It has several major flaws that keep it from making the most of its source material. But as DC and Warner Bros. push forward with their attempt to create a shared movie universe, honestly re-examining an early misfire in that effort is worthwhile. “The things that Green Lantern got wrong” is well-trod ground at this point. They picked the wrong villain. With the entire mythos of the Green Lantern comic the movie went with……

    Missing a favorite show from TV seasons past? Odds are a good that a revival is in the offing. Image provided by imdb/Disney Network executives aren’t known for original thinking. They will happily recycle and remake past hits in lieu of developing new concepts. To some extent, you can’t blame TV networks for going for something familiar. In a world where viewing options seem to metastasize by the day, delivering a series with a pre-sold brand can be crucial in attracting eyeballs. Remakes litter the television landscape. For every successful “re-imagining” like Hawaii Five-O,…

    There’s been a lot of controversy this week surrounding Batman: Arkham Knight’s DLC Season Pass, specifically because of its price ($40).

Rocksteady wanted to make it clear that they’re excited to bring new content to Batman: Arkham Knight DLC…

The actor has an upcoming supernatural movie called The Last Witch Hunter, in which Diesel will star alongside Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie, as well as Elijah Wood and Michael Caine. The Last Witch Hunter, directed by Breck Eisner, will let Diesel play the role of Kaulder, an immortal witch hunter who must stop a plague created by witch covens from ravaging New York City (if…
