10 Great Filmmakers Who Never Won the Academy Award for Best Director

The 92nd Academy Awards are almost upon us, and if there’s one certainty going into Oscar night, it’s that some worthy talent in some category will be overlooked in favor of a lesser talent. No nominee or winner is undeserving of recognition, but snubs are also an essential part of Oscar history and directors are not immune to them. In fact, some of the greatest directors of all time have gone their whole career without receiving a proper Best Director Oscar. Film is fundamentally a collaborati...

For the King: Movies to inspire passion & protest for justice this Martin Luther King Day

With the advent of another election year, the racial, gender and sexual injustice of the Trump administration still rampant, and the overture of Trump’s impeachment trial all at hand, life can get more than a little overwhelming. Thank goodness, then, for the movies, which can help distract us from the news…or help us channel our anger into something productive. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired us to do the same. The movies listed here commemorate the struggle for equality in America by remindi...

Mac Miller’s Posthumous Album Circles Is a Heartbreaking Plea For Inner Peace

There were times when it seemed like Mac Miller would never stop rapping. At his peak, he was an indefatigable creative force who wrote and recorded hundreds of verses stuffed with cocksure bravado, unending internal rhyme schemes and sly double entendres. These verses were volleyed off onto grandiose Billboard-topping studio albums, knotty mixtapes scavenged by backpack rap nerds, or the projects of his countless collaborators at a breathtaking rate. Miller, born Malcolm James McCormic...

‘The Secret Commonwealth’ Review: Can ‘His Dark Materials’ Grow Up?

It’s been 25 years since The Golden Compass (Northern Lights in the U.K.) was first published and became a children’s lit hit. A coming-of-age story nestled in a riveting otherworldly adventure filled with witches, talking polar bears, and animal companions, Pullman would use that children’s fantasy smokescreen to slowly introduce an unexpected subversion of Milton’s Paradise Lost. When the heroine Lyra fails to save her friend at the end of The Golden Compass, the shock that that this was not ...

Police Departments Are Using Swatting Registries To Help Protect Swatting Targets From Police Officers (techdirt)

Swatting isn't going away. Neither are SWAT teams. And the amped-up, guns-out tactics these teams use all but ensure a violent end for targets of bogus 911 calls. "Swatting" is a cheap and efficient way to terrorize anyone you want terrorized, whether it's a gamer, journalist, online critic, celebrity, activist, or just someone's whose personal info has ended up on the wrong website. Why hire a hitman to take out your enemy when cops are willing to do it for free? The downside is limited. Ev...

John Coltrane Talks About the Sacred Meaning of Music in the Human Experience: Listen to One of His Final Interviews (1966)

A few years ago, the animated series Blank on Blank released a video with five minutes from one of John Coltrane’s last interviews in 1966, eight months before his death from liver cancer at age 40. In the excerpts, Coltrane tells interviewer Frank Kofsky, a Pacifica Reporter, about his intuitive approach to practicing, his switch to soprano sax, and his desire to “be a force for real good.” As juicy as these tidbits are for Coltrane fans, the full interview, above, is even better—an hour-long ...

The 10 Best Teen Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Ahh, the teen movie. The high school story. The hormonal homage. It’s a genre that has lived in my heart since long before I became a teenager, and will remain there when I am straight-up elderly. The awkwardness and misfitting, the fashion and feelings — there are few other times in our lives when everything is turned up to high-def in just such a way as when we are teenagers. The 2010s were a terrific time for teen movies. Poignant, ...

Give InKind’s smarter giving platform brings in surprise $1.5 million in pre-seed funding

Helping out a friend in need online can be surprisingly difficult. While giving cash is easy enough, that’s often not what people need most — so Give InKind aims to be the platform where you can do a lot more than write a check. The idea is such a natural one that the company tripled its goal for a pre-seed round, raising $1.5 million from Seattle investors. The company was selected for inclusion in the Female Founders Alliance’s Ready Set Raise accelerator, at the demo day for which I saw fo...

The Most Frustrating Part About Running A Coffee Shop

IT’S NOT ROASTING THE COFFEE THAT’S FOR SURE. COFFEE SHOPS ARE REALLY HARD TO MANAGE They may SEEM cozy and comfortable — a chill spot for a community to gather, sip a hot beverage, and get some things done (or kill time on someone else’s WiFi). And when done well, the vibe a dope coffee shop creates seems effortless. But what goes on behind the counter is another story. This stuff takes WORK.

When Joy Feels Far Away

What do you do when you have tried everything, but joy still feels far away? You have read your Bible — silently and aloud, five verses at a time, even whole books at a time. You have pasted promises on notecards, and whiteboards, and on the back of your hand. You have gathered with God’s people, unburdened yourself to friends, searched for unrepentant sin. You have prayed — oh, have you prayed — by yourself and with others, in your room and on long walks. Perhaps, in desperation, you have ...
