OOOG Brand Founder Is Taking the “Athleisure” Clothing Market By Storm

When former rapper Keith “Street Lotto” Smith created T-shirts to promote his single “OOOG” back in 2014, he had no idea that it would blossom into a full-fledged lifestyle “athleisure” brand – one that would not only make a statement in the fashion world, but inspire many people in the process.  However, that is exactly what is happening. Based in Atlanta, OOOG Brand has formed wings and continues to soar, establishing a powerful presence across the nation with no signs of slowing down. The...

How Patti Smith “Saved” Rock and Roll: A New Video Makes the Case

Rock and roll has always had its huge stars: from its earliest beginnings as a cultural phenomenon of interracial and sexual anxiety, to its turn as the soundtrack of free love, good drugs, and civil unrest. By the early 70s, however, Polyphonic argues above, the music of rebellion had “lost its way,” become the province of superrich superstars in private jets and French chateaus. As the 60s crashed and burned with the deaths of major figures like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morr...

82 Animated Interviews with Living, Dead, Celebrated & Sometimes Disgraced Celebrities

Who wants to live in the present? It’s such a limiting period, compared to the past. —Roger Ebert, Playboy 1990 Were Ebert alive today would he still express himself thusly in a recorded interview? His remarks are specific to his cinematic passion, but still. As a smart Midwesterner, he would have realized that the corn has ears and the potatoes have eyes. Remarks can be taken out of context. (Witness the above.) Recent history has shown that not everyone is keen to roll back the clock—w...

The Women of Rock: Discover an Oral History Project That Features Pioneering Women in Rock Music

If you’ve wondered why projects celebrating women in the history of rock are needed, maybe all you need to do is listen to women in rock. Stories of boys’ clubs in the industry, from record labels to journalists to fandoms, are ubiquitous, which is why so many voices are pushed to the margins, say rock historians like Tanya Pearson, director of the Women of Rock oral history project. Marginalization happens not only on stages and studios but at the level of memory and preservation. “Cano...

You Big Dummy! Drug Dealer Arrested on Drug & Gun Charges After Stunting Too Hard on Social Media

Creative Passion: Five Filmmakers and their Inspirations

A smart film critic (possibly Ken Hanke) once wrote, “filmmakers start by remaking things they admired in childhood.” I am not able to find out exactly who wrote this, partly because it could be applied to any film critic. Every filmmaker has their ideas and obsessions implanted into them at an early age. No matter how much they change or how their subject matter may shift, they’re looking to recreate that moment they saw John Carpenter’s The Thing to experience that feeling they felt when they ...
