Rock n Roll Comic Covers

Some Light-Up Cacti to Make Your Winter a Little More Tolerable

The other day it was 6 degrees here in NYC, and today it's 59 degrees. These fluctuating temperatures combined with the crippling darkness of winter are starting to mess with my mood, so I've been doing a bit of lighting research to see if adding a little more cheer to my apartment might help. I'm also a notoriously bad plant parent, killing anything and everything in my path (I thought aloe plants were supposed to be indestructible?), so I quickly realized that these cacti lights I stumbled acr...

An Anti-Commercial Theatre Ad For Skittles That Mocks Super Bowl Ads

This year, the candy company Mars expanded their reach considerably with a (still pretty limited) one-night-only show in New York starring Michael C. Hall called Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical. While proceeds from Sunday’s performance are going to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the production is a commentary on Super Bowl advertising and product placement that is, itself, a feature-length advertisement full of product placement. Even if you didn’t get a ticket, you can listen to...

Tension: A Powerful Tool to Keep Your Audience Connected

Have you ever found yourself yelling at your television as your favorite show went to winter break? Or maybe you have leaned in as a storyteller brought you to the edge of a cliffhanger?

Vulnerable nuclear waste stockpiles are becoming a"global crisis"

Nuclear waste is quickly becoming one of the world’s biggest problems. Earth’s growing stockpile of radioactive waste is troublesome, because these chemicals remain in their radioactive state for several millennia — and we have yet to come up with a foolproof storage solution. A new study explored facilities that store nuclear waste in seven locations around the world, including the United States, France, Japan, Belgium, Britain, Finland and Sweden. Officials discovered that the majority of nuc...

London Police Arrest Rappers For Performing A Song In Concert

Police say the duo’s song is incitement to violence. They’ve been cracking down. Police interference has undoubtedly had an impact on the scene’s lyrics. “A lot of rappers are censoring their music now. Even down to what they name their video, or what hashtag they use to promote it. They want to go under the radar. You put all that hard work into it, you gas everyone up – ‘Listen to my song!’ – and it gets taken down in 10 minutes. This is our livelihood, and it’s a serious financial loss to ha...

A Grammar Guide For The Age Of Tweeting

This is an excellent time for someone to tell us how to think about these things.
