I love working on cold, rainy days.• A box of photos of this woman and a ton of Hollywood celebrities was found in a thrift s...

A San Francisco artist is suing Disney's Pixar for allegedly not only stealing her artwork for the studio's upcoming animated film "Onward" but also for doing so under "wickedly misleading pretenses." Pixar rented Sweet Cicely Daniher's van emblazoned with a unicorn for a company event in September 2018 as a visual prop, only for Daniher to watch the film's trailer months later and spot an animated van that she says is identical to hers.

Valley-inspired candles ignite aroma of nostalgia … and Northridge, Pacoima and Ventura Boulevard, too

By Marianne Love, Correspondent The San Fernando Valley has been memorialized in many ways. There are museums about its history. Painting and sculptures depicting days and people gone by.

Her scented candles are named after such valley icons as “Northridge CA,” a sweet orange aroma representing the citrus groves that once LDN-L-VALCANDLES-0209dominated the ...

How Dubsmash revived itself as #2 to TikTok

Lip-syncing app Dubsmash was on the brink of death. After a brief moment of virality in 2015 alongside Vine (R.I.P), Dubsmash was bleeding users faster than it could recruit them. The app let you choose an audio track like a rap song or movie quote and shoot a video of you pretending to say the words. But there was nowhere in the app to post the videos. It was a creation tool like Hipstamatic, not a network like Instagram. There’s a reason we’re only using one of those today. So in 2017 Dubsm...

I am bananas for these behind-the-scenes photos of Planet of the Apes

Makeup artist John Chambers' work on Planet of the Apes (1968) is a high point in Hollywood prosthetics. The characters don't look like real apes, but they have an interesting mix of ape and human. Combined with costume designer Morton Haack's outfits, the overall effect is spectacular and unforgettable. I learned that photographer Dennis Stock took a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos during the shooting of the movie, and you can browse them at Magnum Photos. [via Flashbak]
