TechCrunch’s Favorite Things of 2019

Each year the TechCrunch staff gathers together to make a big ol’ list of our Favorite Things from that year. As always, we’re keeping the definition of “thing” very… open.

It’s a list of things that, in a sea of things, stood out to us at the end of the year. This is our list for 2019. Greg Kumparak, Editor Parasite THIS MOVIE. Oh wow. It’s ...

Joni Mitchell Publishes a Book of Her Rarely Seen Paintings & Poetry

Self Portrait.”Art work by Joni Mitchell, from "Morning Glory on the Vine" / Courtesy Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Joni Mitchell is a woman of many talents—too many for the label “singer-songwriter” to encompass. It does not capture the literary depth of her lyricism, the unique strength of her distinctive voice, or the deftness and versatility of her guitar playing. Nor the fact that she’s one of the most interesting personalities in rock (or folk-rock/folk/folk-jazz, whatever). Mitchell’s biogra...

Megan Mullally on her marriage to Nick Offerman, her secret pets and the final season of ‘Will & Grace’

As one of our era’s most masterful comedic actresses, Megan Mullally is clearly familiar with the whole celebrity-interview trope. A star wafts into such-and-such swanky restaurant, orders a burger, effuses “realness.” So when Mullally steps into a divey Laurel Canyon bar in Los Angeles clad in a ginormous, tie-dyed T-shirt emblazoned with the Cat in...

How ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ fulfills a childhood dream — with explosions — for O’Shea Jackson Jr.

O’Shea Jackson Jr. had a clear plan after he made his screen debut in “Straight Outta Compton,” playing his own father, the rapper Ice Cube, in the 2015 biopic about the influential rap group NWA. “I wanted to take a bunch of roles that were night and day,” Jackson says. “I just wanted to show versatility.” So he signed onto the dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West” and then flexed his action movie muscles in the heist flick “Den Of Thieves,” and then, well, Godzilla stomped all over his plans, Jackson...

Coachella 2019: Bob Moses returns to the desert music festival with ‘Battle Lines,’ a new album made in LA

Jimmy Vallance recounts with lingering horror how Bob Moses, his electronic rock act with Tom Howie, survived a near-disaster of a debut at the Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival in 2016 just as the duo with the singular name was taking off. The single “Tearing Me Up” was rising on the alternative radio charts, but the group’s infrastructure – the roadies and tech guys that make life better for bands on the road – hadn’t caught up with the velocity of buzz about the band.
