The Illustrated Version of “Alice’s Restaurant”: Watch Arlo Guthrie’s Thanksgiving Counterculture Classic

Alice’s Restaurant. It’s now a Thanksgiving classic, and something of a tradition around here. Recorded in 1967, the 18+ minute counterculture song recounts Arlo Guthrie’s real encounter with the law, starting on Thanksgiving Day 1965. As the long song unfolds, we hear all about how a hippie-bating police officer, by the name of William “Obie” Obanhein, arrested Arlo for littering. (Cultural footnote: Obie previously posed for several Norman Rockwell paintings, including the well-known p...

WizKid & Tems Capture The Essence Of Summer’s Waning Days

Four years ago, this column posed a question: “Can WizKid Conquer The US Pop Landscape He Helped Create?” At the time, American pop music was sounding increasingly African, in no small part thanks to the smash success of Drake’s chart-topping WizKid collab “One Dance.” With “One Dance” and a handful of other tracks on his Views album, Drake — always savvy about interjecting himself into whatever trends he sees popping off — incorporated elements of the Afrobeats sound (not to be confused with Af...

David Duchovny: ‘I wasn’t seeing stuff I was desperate to do’

The actor struggled to find shows and films that excited him so he turned to music but reveals that he’ll never say never to another X-Files rebootIn 2015, deep into an acting career that had kept him busy for the better part of three decades, the then 54-year-old David Duchovny released his first novel and his first album.

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 3: Before I Hang!

Our feature film for tonight is 1940’s Before I Hang with Boris Karloff. But before we get there, it’s time for our #TrackoftheDay. This one’s from the Nightmare Revisited album–basically a Nightmare Before Christmas tribute/covers album. Rodrigo y Gabriela started in Mexico before moving to Dublin for several years and now they’re back in Mexico City. They play guitars like they’re trying to test them for fire resistance. Check it out for yourself: Now, before Karloff, I wanted to see...

'The Best of Richard Matheson' Is Among the Best of Pop Culture

Save perhaps Stephen King, no other modern writer has been as successfully prolific as the late Richard Matheson. With seemingly innumerable television and film adaptations of his work, chances are that, even if you're unfamiliar with his name, you've seen his work played out on screens both large and small. Like King, who himself claims Matheson as a primary influence on his own work, Matheson managed to write successfully across myriad genres. From horror to science fiction to noir to w...

'Star Trek: Discovery' and 'The Orville': To Boldly Go Where We've Already Gone

Reviewer's Log. Airdate 2017. We lived in dark times. Cynical, divisive times. It was the year of Trump. A time of fraud and bigotry and aggression. Wracked with fears of global destruction and environmental devastation. Of greed and corruption and unchecked narcissistic vice. Of infantile Twitter tantrums and Neo-Nazis petulantly crying about how mean people are to them. We needed hope. A vision of the future not mired in ego and greed; one that celebrated inclusivity and w...

Clowns Are Up to a Different Kind of Funny Business, These Days

Who Lives to Laugh Another Day? Pennywise the Clown is a big draw at the box office right now and has, in fact, been a huge draw for me ever since I first read Stephen King's It way back in the late '80s.The trans-dimensional being that disguises “Itself" as an innocent children's performer and then frightens them to feed on their fear is nothing if not compelling. Luckily, the 2017 film really captures that fascinating terror and brings it from the book to the scr...

Nick Viall is still on TV. The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and Bachelor star is currently in the dead center of a heated reality show, in which contestants face off against not only each other, but the prospect of learning how to dance on national television. A terrifying prospect, and I'm not even remotely joking.We're not sure if he's good at dancing, but he is good at being on reality television. So what's the biggest obstacle to Viall's continued success? Not William Shatner: It's s...

Fans Have Figured Out What A.D.'s Gift Is On Pretty Little Liars

A — in all her iterations — has done some seriously messed up stuff over the years, from nearly sawing Emily (Shay Mitchell) in half to mowing down Hanna (Ashley Benson) in a car. But it's not only bodily harm that the Liars have to worry about: A is also a big fan of the cryptic gift. Sure, that might not sound so bad — especially when compared to the whole "being locked in a box headed toward an electric saw" thing — but as any Pretty Little Liars fan knows, A's gifts are never presents you ...
