‘Dawn of the Dead’ at 15: Zack Snyder’s Best Film is the One With Zombies, Not Superheroes

As it pertains to comic book movies, the name Zack Snyder can be a rather contentious one. Snyder’s filmography reads like a wish list of Hollywood adaptations that a reader of Wizard: The Guide to Comics could have only meekly fantasized about back in the 1990s. 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Justice League. If you fired up Doctor Doom’s time platform and traveled to a convention floor in the past, carrying an envelope with only those five titles credited to the same direct...

Why You Shouldn’t Overlook the American South

Posted: 2/18/2019 | February 18th, 2019 I love the South. Before I went traveling, I always had this perception that the southern states in the US were backward. They were filled with racists, yokels, and obese, gun-loving, Jesus freaks. It was a perception born out of a quarter-century of living in New England and consuming mass media and stereotypes about a people and place I really didn’t know anything about. Then, at the start of my grand trip in 2006, I drove across the United States. As ...

Tamworth Country Music Festival

It’s not that music festivals aren’t fun anymore. It’s just that they’re not really about music. Sure, you’ll get to watch your favorite band over 150,000 screaming iPhones. But if you’re there to see music, get up-close and personal with it and appreciate it, festivals are deeply disappointing. They might be great for super fans of a specific band, but for music lovers, they’re lacking. But in rural Australia, one large festival still provides the intimate, immersive experience that other fe...

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....

I Still Have Heroes: The Man in Black and The Men in Black

by: Bill Sheridan      At age 75, I no longer have celebrity or athlete heroes. I’ve come to realize that they are simply men and women blessed with God-given talents capable of thrilling stadiums full of adoring concert-goers, or rabid football fans. I still do respect their skills and appreciate their hard work. In my teens through my twenties, I was enamored with the likes of Elvis Presley, Joe Namath, Sandy Koufax, and Buddy Holly. But my real hero of heroes was the late Johnny Cash. I owne...

DSTLD Jeans Review

Photo by DSTLD Have you heard of DSTLD (pronounced distilled)? Chances are the brand has rung a bell or two. With backgrounds in the creatives and luxury market, founders Corey Epstein and Mark Lynn believe that great clothing shouldn’t come at an extreme price tag. To be able to cut costs, took away the noise and chose minimal, modern and lasting styles. Next, they cut out retail to make their pieces available at a 1/3 of the price that they would normally retail for. Even better, the team ...
