LITERATURE

 » Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.
[02.21.2011 by Bridget Doyle]

MUSIC

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

MUSIC

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

LA CINEMA FILM + REVIEW

CINEMA

 » The Social Network - The movie destined to be called "the Facebook movie" is sometimes as goofy as you'd think. It's also expansive, funny, thoughtful, strung with giddily good performances and officially more fun than Pirates of Silicon Valley.
[10.04.2010 by Theon Weber]

CINEMA

 » Blood into Wine - Any big fan of Maynard James Keenan knows that the Tool/A Perfect Circle/Puscifer frontman has been living a double life for the past several years as a winemaker/entrepreneur. But seeing as the charismatic Keenan is not the most media-friendly of musicians, it's a rare feat to get an in-depth glimpse into what the man's other passion project entails.

CINEMA

 » Micmacs - French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet has made a career out of playfulness. His oeuvre consists of visual spectacles that childishly and beautifully grapple with universal themes of love, death, and redemption, all the while remaining hyper-aware that they exist within the medium of film.
[07.08.2010 by Jonah Flicker]

CINEMA

 » Trash Humpers - Harmony Korine, the B-List Spike Jonze, will be on hand to open his latest film at Los Angeles' NuArt Theatre tonight. If you enjoyed Korine's bizarre past work, you're in for a treat. You're probably also retarded. This time around people actually have sex with garbage.
[05.14.2010 by Eric J Herboth]

CINEMA

 » The Ghost Writer - Pierce Brosnan does his best Tony Blair grin in Roman Polanski's first post-extradition film, "a thriller with topical ambitions: it takes place in a jittery, bomb-fearing Britain and America, where the weary rituals of security screenings refuse to let the characters or the audience relax."
[03.09.2010 by Theon Weber]

CINEMA

 » A Million In the Morning - "A documentary about a Movie Watching World Championship wherein Richard Simmons was abused, a guy hallucinated a beagle crawling up a plant, a bunny head was used as a weapon 78 times, and the guys who made it got fired."
[01.22.2010 by Eric J Herboth]
