Why are male politicians in love with topless vaccine selfies? | Priya Elan

Essential to the vaxxie checklist are an off-the-shoulder shirt, Viking-level chest hair and a twinkle in the eyeAre you man enough for a vaxxie (that’s a vaccination selfie to you and me)? That’s the question some of us are asking after having seen a host of politicians pose shirtless while getting their Covid-19 jabs. Not since Vladimir Putin shared those topless holiday pics, perfecting the butterfly stroke and breaking actual twigs with the simple power of his legs, have there been such stra...

Coachella 2019: How the festival survived and thrived to reach its 20th year

As the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival marks its 20th anniversary this weekend, it’s easy to forget what a rare and unexpected surprise the very first fest was in 1999. First of all, most of you weren’t there – only 20,000 or so fans “filled” the Empire Polo Field to hear artists such as the Chemical Brothers and Beck, Rage Against the Machine and Tool. Second, those few who were there had never seen anything like it. Crisp green grass instead of asphalt or dirt. Reasonable prices at the ...

Black Mirror's "Hang The DJ" Finds Love In The Often Hopeless Place Of Internet Dating

Meet the Cult Film Superfans Who Turned Vinyl Soundtracks into an Empire

What comes to mind when you think about vinyl records? Maybe you imagine try-hard undergrads decorating their apartments with unopened LPs. Or a broken speaker churning Morrissey out of a Montreal storefront. While vinyl’s resurgence might’ve started in dorm rooms and hip hotspots, it’s ended up in the homes—and hearts—of people everywhere. Fads like frosted tips and the Macarena are bound to stay locked away in their respective decades, but vinyl’s warm textures keep drawing listeners back. La...
