Will Instagram Kill A Musician’s Famous Mystery?

Maybe the pressure of being mysterious was getting to superstar Frank Ocean, or maybe … well, who knows, with Ocean? But “with Ocean’s mask slipping, it is worth wondering how audience perceptions towards him might shift. From the off, Ocean felt like a pre-social-media artist, with a privacy that forced listeners to focus on the intricacies of his music rather than the life of the man behind it, adding to his enigma and giving rise to one of music’s most dedicated fanbases.” – The Guardian (...

Ennio Morricone Farewell Tour in Berlin: Grazie, Maestro!

None Most journalistic articles are opinion pieces, and all art reviews certainly are opinion pieces, at least to a degree. When retelling a live music show, more often than not the narrative is filled with platitudes and exaggerations: "legendary", "epic", "genius", and "unique" are the buzzwords often used to describe your favorite musician's tunes, performances, or their career in itself. While for many narrators this feels like the Truth, when faced with a concert genuinely deserving of suc...

Twitter Has A Lot To Say About Frank Ocean's Skin-Care Routine

'Sex, Lies, and Videotape' Originated the Soderbergh Enigma

None Steven Soderbergh's work has been in our lives for 29 years via 28 feature films. That's a mountain of artistic evidence, enough to figure out most directors' favorite motifs, crutches and passions three times over. Yet maybe it's because of Soderbergh's prolific work rate that he remains difficult to decipher. You'd be hard pressed to name another contemporary director whose films can be as routinely dissimilar as Che, Solaris and The Informant!. Or look at it this way: the artist who wou...

The Best Buys Under $5 From Target’s New Home Essentials Brand

In the dark ages, "store brand" products were a thing we bought because they were cheap. The packaging was as close the name brand as legally possible, and we just kind of hoped the quality was the same. "Generic" was the derogatory term we used for such things. Now, when we look at Target's newest home and beauty brand, Smartly , we're kind of thinking the opposite. Why would you buy products that are available at every other store, when instead you could get these sleekly designed Target ex...

Col3trane – “Tyler” Video

Col3trane is a London teen making pop-leaning R&B. His recent single "Tyler," the closing track on his EP-length Boot mixtape, reminds me of early Frank Ocean, which is apparently a comparison he gets a lot.

Why You're Breaking Out On Your Jawline — & How To Make It Stop

Adult acne is a cruel joke of cosmic proportions. Sure, breaking out sucks when you're a teenager, but at least you’re somewhat united in it, as your friends will probably be suffering too. Plus, you can chalk it up to something of an awkward caterpillar phase — along with the mood swings, orthodontia, and questionable style choices.Getting acne again in adulthood — or for the first time, if you made it through adolescence unscathed — feels especially unfair. You're supposed to have grown out o...
