Bill Gunn's 'Personal Problems' and a History of the Video Revolution

None The '60s and '70s signal watershed decades for the growth of alternative media in the West. The emergence of offset printing during the '60s allowed hundreds, if not thousands, of publications to bloom since it only required a typewriter, some glue, a few volunteers, and a vision. Pirate radio stations also proliferated across the United States, Europe, and Latin America during this time. Perhaps nothing captured the excitement and utopian possibilities of the youth revolt like the video ...

Everything You Want To Know About Nipple Piercings (& We Mean Everything)

Everyone has an opinion on nipple piercings. Maybe you have one of your own. Maybe you want one. Maybe the thought makes you want to cross your arms and protect your breasts at all costs. Or maybe, like us, you just want to know more about the whole thing.The nipple piercing trend is currently having a big moment, thanks to stars like Ksendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Rihanna, Amber Rose, and Kristen Stewart (and those are just a few of the celebrities rumored to have one) — but given the hidden na...

50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

Lorna Doom, bassist for the Germs, RIP

Lorna Doom, badass bassist of influential Los Angeles punk band the Germs, died yesterday. Formed in 1976, the Germs -- Doom, Darby Crash, Pat Smear, and Don Bolles in the classic line-up -- were at the center of the early Hollywood punk scene that spawned Black Flag, X, Fear, the Go-Go's, and so many seminal acts. From the Los Angeles Times: Born Teresa Ryan, Doom became an icon of the U.S. punk explosion despite having to learn her instrument after already joining the band. Along with her ...

Foo Fighters, Miguel, Brandi Carlile, Metallica and more pay tribute to the late Chris Cornell at The Forum

Musicians, celebrities and fans all gathered at the sold-out Forum in Inglewood on a rainy Wednesday night to celebrate the life and legacy of the late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell at a special I Am The Highway benefit concert orchestrated by Cornell’s wife, Vicky, and his three children, Lillian, Toni and Christopher. Hosted by late night host Jimmy Kimmel, the evening ended up being a 5-hour, 42-song music marathon that showcased a who’s who of rock ‘n’ roll and Hollywood. “We are very d...

Popdose Single Premiere: The Lines Between Beth // James Get “Blurry”

Beth // James is an indie folk pop duo from Austin, Texas, a city where one can imagine 70 percent of the population is a member of an indie folk pop duo or group. Popdose first introduced loyal readers to the heavenly harmonies of Mikaela Beth Kahn (vocals, piano) and Jordan James Burchill (vocals, guitar) in early 2017 when we featured their ‘Lion Eyes’ single in our round up of the year’s most promising new artists. We caught up with them at the end of the year to take a preview of their 2018...

Frankie Shaw Will Apologize For Some Things, But She's Not Sorry About SMILF

A show about single moms who are down on their luck and also horny is about as taboo as TV gets, but the Showtime series SMILF is the rare gem that manages to disrupt with unapologetic verve. Set in the Boston’s historically blue collar Southie neighborhood, the show centers on Bridgette Bird, a young, struggling mom of a toddler, who is totally lost, troubled by a traumatic past, but doing her best. In the iconic pilot episode, she’s seen at a bodega running into an old friend while buying coo...

32 Celebrities Who Ditch Makeup On Their Day Off

There is only one rule of makeup, which is that there are none. Foundation diehard? Allow us to direct you to our favorite ones. More the fiercely fresh-faced type? Here's the skin-care routine that will make you glow. We don't subscribe to the narrative that either one is better, or braver, than the other.That said, we've noticed an uptick in celebrities who have been jumping on the no-makeup train — led by the patron saint of cosmetics-free complexions, Alicia Keys.

Lucy Boynton's Blunt Bob Is the Breakout Star Of 2019

Lucy Boynton might not be a household name just yet, but we're predicting she will be before the year is up. The 24-year-old, who had minor roles in Sing Street and Murder on the Orient Express, is making waves for her portrayal of Mary Austin, Freddie Mercury's long-time love, in the recent Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. But even with an iconic role in the books and a rumored relationship with co-star Rami Malek, there's another reason people can't stop talking about the breakout star: her h...

Flogging Molly will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the Hollywood Palladium

It really wouldn’t feel like St. Patrick’s Day around Los Angeles without Irish-American punk rock band Flogging Molly. The group will return to the Hollywood Palladium, 6215 Sunset Blvd., on March 17 along with special guests Face to Face for a proper St. Patrick’s Day Celebration.

The Pastel Hair Color Trend Taking Over Hollywood

From Barbie dolls to baby showers to modern-day millennials to Janelle Monáe videos, the color pink has long had a fan base that's diverse and ever-changing. Right now Hollywood is showing the color some love with stars like Julia Roberts, Kylie Jenner, Amber Rose, and Halsey all dyeing their hair shades like baby, flamingo, and even neon Post-it pink.Although it seems like a great shade for someone just starting to tinker with hair dye, there are a few things to keep in mind if you're looking ...

Criterion Film Offerings: French Noir, Japanese Lovers, American Gangsters and Frames of Pure Serenity

The Criterion Collection, the busiest and most prestigious of companies devoted to classic films, provides a rare delight in this collection of films now available on Blu-ray. These are movies that have never before been on DVD or Blu-ray (at least not in Region 1), and in some cases weren't even on VHS. These tantalizing titles, long heard of but vexingly unavailable until now, are a particular pleasure to for film lovers to enjoy, at last. Panique (dir. Julien Duvivier, 1946) The aloof and mi...

'Room to Dream', in which David Lynch Has a Conversation with His Own Biography

Always keen to do things his own way, filmmaker David Lynch presents Room to Dream as "a person having a conversation with his own biography." Chapters of conventional biography, written by journalist Kristine McKenna, alternate with chapters of reflections by Lynch himself. This structure promises a deconstruction of a conventional biography, but this unconventional choice does little to advance the narrative. For one reason, any inconsistencies Lynch notes with McKenna's work are small. For ex...

Disclosure, Dasein, and the Divine in Terrence Malick's 'The Tree of Life'

None The tree of life is a common metaphor for the interconnectedness of all beings. While this metaphor is a familiar framework for ecological thinking—all regions, systems, and species are interwoven and inseparable—the tree of life is also a provocative paradigm for thinking about creativity. The Tree of Life is also both the name of Terrence Malick's 2011 masterpiece and an apt descriptor for his creative process, as evident by The Criterion Collection's 2018 release. The Criterion's rel...

Movies You Won’t Believe Are Based On True Stories

At first glance, the script for War Dogs probably read like an outlandish action comedy.How could a couple of stoner dudes from Miami secure a $300 million contract to supply arms to the U.S. government? How could the Pentagon supply tens of millions of shoddy weapons to Afghani troops fighting Al Qaeda and the Taliban? How could the U.S. government be tricked into purchasing decomposing, 40-year-old munitions that were culled from a Communist surplus stockpile or manufactured cheaply in China ...

Sky Blue Hair Is On Trend For 2019 & We're Not Mad At It

If 2018 proved anything, it's that colorful hair — we're talking highlighter yellow and My Little Pony pink — isn't just some wacky fad... it's the new norm. And it's celebrities, who change hair colors as regularly as they change designer clothes, that are keeping the rainbow hair alive. Heck, Cardi B wears a different shade almost every day (thanks to her extensive wig collection, of course).But gazing into 2019, the stars are veering from jewel tones and leaning into pastel hues. For exampl...

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

None Film critic Manny Farber, in typical inimitable style, summarized much of Samuel Fuller's film oeuvre through simultaneous praise and critique in the following observation: "What's good about his films is lovable; the daring, uninhibited use of semidocumentary techniques that save the movie from Fuller's mind, an unthinking morass at best" (Negative Space: Manny Farber on the Movies (New York: De Capo Press, 1998, 132). Put slightly more generously, Fuller's film style often trumps the plo...

Perfect Album: Something Else

I was going to post today about a "Hot Track" but decided instead to simply start a new feature called "Perfect Album." Yesterday I was listening to Johnny Richards' Something Else, one of my absolute favorite big-band albums. Something Else was recorded for Bethlehem in Hollywood on August 2 and 3, 1956. What made Richards (above) special as an arranger was his fiery romanticism and percussive moodiness. A highly progressive writer, Richards thought big. Really big. And he loved his sections ...

The Latest Makeup Trend Storming Hollywood Is So '80s — & So Chic

There are the beauty trends that most everyone welcomes with open arms, like dewy highlighter, lush, velvety-looking lip color, and easy-to-wear monochromatic makeup. And then there are the ones that make us think, Are we really sure we want to do this?The latest example of the latter comes to us from the '80s (naturally), a decade riddled with daring moves like dark lip liner, a generous amount of blush, and eye makeup that's heavy on the blue. Blue liner and shadow both recall a distinctly St...

Pawel Pawlikowski's 'Cold War' Is a Lustrous, Slyly Subversive Melodrama

None There's a true love guiding Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski's first film since 2015's Oscar-winning Ida. The truth isn't in the depth of the emotion, though, but in its blemished sincerity; it's a story about two lovers who stay involved, but not necessarily together, for 15 years, and who never truly convince each other (or us, as viewers) that love itself is enough. The film, set in 1950s Europe, is extravagant but unsentimental, and never strays far from the stark realities of wartime. Tha...

This playlist is full of wonderful ARP music – some might surprise you

As we remember Alan R. Pearlman and the impact his instruments had on music, here’s a survey of the many places ARP sounds appeared in music culture. It’s a reminder of just how profound electronic music tools can be in their influence – and of the unique age in which we live. Perhaps now is the perfect time for an ARP revival. With modular synthesis reaching ever-wider audiences, the ARP creations – the 2500, 2600, and Odyssey featured here – represent something special. Listen across these t...

Slavery, Piracy, and Shirtless Men in Silent Film, 'Old Ironsides'

None Now on DVD and Blu-ray from Kino Lorber is a classic silent epic that hasn't seen the light of home video since a Paramount VHS back in the '80s. Old Ironsides (1926) provides a colorful, patriotic, sometimes hoked-up and inaccurate account of an important and largely overlooked incident in American naval history, the First Barbary War of 1804-05, also called the Tripolitan War. This event served as America's first "foreign adventure" and the first time an American flag was hoisted in mili...

7 Tattoo Trends You're About To See Everywhere In 2019

Long before Dr. Woo, JonBoy, and their A-list clientele made dainty white dots and tiny crosses mainstream news, tattoos were already deeply ingrained in the fabric of history, discovered on the bodies of Egyptian mummies and an Austrian-Italian iceman now known as Ötzi. In those times, thousands of years ago, tattooing was thought to be used therapeutically, a kind of early form of acupuncture; today, it's much more popular for creating decorative body art.Still, Ötzi and his pre-Common Era co...
