Steve Albini, legendary Big Black guitarist and Nirvana engineer, is also a poker champion

If you played poker with Steve Albini -- esteemed guitarist for Big Black, Rapeman, and Shellac, recording engineer for Nirvana, Pixies, and PJ Harvey -- he would take all your money. I was surprised to learn that last year Albini won gold in the World Series of Poker. Above, a short documentary about Albini's poker prowess. (Poker Central via Uncrate)

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...

Trail Mix: Maya De Vitry – Song Premiere

Acoustic trio The Stray Birds have long been a favorite of mine. I first heard of the band on my one visit to IBMA, in 2013, and the band turned up on Trail Mix that same year for the first time. It was with sadness that I heard of the band’s dissolution some months ago, as their harmonies, songwriting, and instrumental prowess always impressed me. My sadness didn’t last long, however, as I discovered that Maya De Vitry – guitarist and singer of The Stray Birds – was dropping her debut solo rec...

VELA$ – “Nite Cap”

Sometimes we all need a Nite Cap. For STL artist (by way of Brazil), VELA$, his nite cap is a girl and how he views both aspirations and relationships as one. “Been staying up till 3 now. Bad b*tch with me, we got run the scene now.” The hypnotizing production, crafted by Audio Chef, is defined by a haunting flute loop and gritty drums with a kick that knocks through your headphones. Inspired by artists such as Travis Scott, Trippie Redd, and Eminem, the 21 year old artist continues to ex...

Don, Oscar and Aretha

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed Don Chadwick, co-designer of the Aeron chair, for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section (go here). The ergonomic Aeron was first introduced in the late 1990s. Instead of upholstery, the chair's seat and back are constructed of a tightly woven two-way suspension system. It feels like you're sitting in a taut net. Don started out as a kid building model planes.  Here's Don on the Aeron... SiriusXM. If you missed me on SiriusXM'...

Purple Shampoo: The Secret To Battling Brassy Blonde Hair

Life as a blonde can be a bit of an emotional roller coaster, especially when you're a true brunette trying to cover up the secret you’ve been hiding since you were 12.

Most of us living as faux blondes will do anything to look like we were, well, born with it.Unfortunately, the coloring cycle is viciously endless — the breakage, the treatments, not to mention the money spent d...

The Best Cleansing Conditioners For Every Hair Type

All shampoos aren't your friend. At least, that's what a few stripping, harsh formulas have taught us over the years. While most liquid lathers are free of drying agents (we're talking about you, sulfates) and full of nourishing ingredients, some of them can leave your hair feeling (and looking) parched. It's why so many pros preach the importance of keeping a good conditioner in your routine to keep hair balanced.But if you frequently shampoo your strands and find that your hair and scalp is ...

What This Weekend's Super Blood Wolf Moon Means For You

On Sunday night, there's set to be a rare "super blood wolf moon " from 9:36 p.m. EST to 12:31 a.m. EST. Despite the werewolf undertones of its name, a "super blood wolf moon" is not as spooky as it sounds. Really, a "super blood wolf moon" is just a lunar eclipse that occurs on the first full moon of the year — but it's still a powerful, transformative time.Whenever a full moon is described as "super," it's referring to its relative proximity to earth in its orbit, explains Laura Tempest Zakro...

Everything You Need To Know About Sound Baths

Upon arriving at the William Vale Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a sound bath, I was immediately offered a “Sound ” chamomile-vanilla tea.

There, nearly a hundred towels were arranged around a tableau of tuning forks, a shruti box, crystal singing bowls, and triangles. Gongs of varying sizes enc...

The Scar Removal Creams That Really Work, According To Experts

Scars have a way of telling your life story. The one on your leg may be from the first time you tried (and failed) to ride a bike. The stretch marks — which are indeed scars — on your hips may be from a time in your life when you were growing up, maturing. The one on your stomach may be a C-section scar, which you were left with after giving birth.There's no reason to feel like you have to hide your scars, or like they're a point of shame. But if you've ever sought to conceal yours, you probabl...
