The Illustrated Version of “Alice’s Restaurant”: Watch Arlo Guthrie’s Thanksgiving Counterculture Classic

Alice’s Restaurant. It’s now a Thanksgiving classic, and something of a tradition around here. Recorded in 1967, the 18+ minute counterculture song recounts Arlo Guthrie’s real encounter with the law, starting on Thanksgiving Day 1965. As the long song unfolds, we hear all about how a hippie-bating police officer, by the name of William “Obie” Obanhein, arrested Arlo for littering. (Cultural footnote: Obie previously posed for several Norman Rockwell paintings, including the well-known p...

Read 800+ Thanksgiving Books Free at the Internet Archive

On Thanksgiving Day, Americans make the (sometimes arduous) effort to gather for an enormous traditional meal and for many, a now equally traditional viewing of televised football. But even when stretched to their maximum length, these activities occupy only so many hours. What to do with the rest of the day? You might consider heading over to the Internet Archive and filling it with some holiday-appropriate reading. Last year that site’s librarian Brewster Kahle tweeted a suggestion to “check ...

Ashley Hlebinsky on Riding Shotgun With Charlie #129 ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. -( Ashley Hlebinsky is THE coolest firearm historian you’ll ever meet! We were both speakers at AMMcon (hosted by the Second Amendment Foundation) in Dallas recently.  Since she is a  historian and we were in Dallas there is only one place for us to visit: Dealey Plaza.  Of course, you know this is where Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald. I LOVE the Kennedy assassination conspiracies! All of them. And while watching any documentary on it, I will buy whatever theory th...

Albert Einstein in Four Color Films

We all think we know just what Albert Einstein looked like — and broadly speaking, we’ve got it right. At least since his death in 1955, since which time generation after generation of children around the world have grown up closely associating his bristly mustache and semi-tamed gray hair with the very concept of scientific genius. His sartorial rumpledness and Teutonically hangdog look have long been the stuff of not just caricature, but (as in Nicolas Roeg’s Insignificance) earnest tr...

Cinematographer Weronika Bilska on the ‘Polish Marilyn Monroe,’ Love for Personal Cinema

Dubbed the “Polish Marilyn Monroe,” the late actor and singer Kalina Jędrusik used to electrify the audiences of the Polish People’s Republic with her risqué outfits, performance in Andrzej Wajda’s Oscar-nominated “The Promised Land” or unconventional relationship with husband, writer Stanisław Dygat.

This Hollywood, Is It Real?

Toward the end of the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, my Croatian Ex-Husband and I drove up the still stabilizing Dalmatian Coast to Venice, lured by the promise of a cheap vacation. The only major flaw in our travel plans was a small section of Bosnia, where the fighting raged on, and which I will only remember as a series of tense military road blocks along the craggy coastal highway fronting the Adriatic. While the attitude toward a Dubrovnik-born national would vary according to the rel...

Blonde: Everything We Know So Far

Director Andrew Dominik has been working on a Marilyn Monroe biopic for over a decade, and his dreams are finally coming true. "Blonde" locked down its lead actress, its distributor and even an explicit NC-17 cut, worthy of Dominik's dark script. At long last, the director behind "Killing Them Softly," and "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" can present his latest passion project to a wide audience. At the center of his film is "Knives Out" star Ana de Armas as Marilyn M...

Marilyn Monroe Biopic Blonde Will Be Released As NC-17 Director's Cut

Andrew Dominik is keeping his Marilyn Monroe biopic dreams alive by hook or by crook. "Blonde" finally locked down Ana de Armas as Monroe after going through more than a few lead actresses, but its troubles didn't stop there. It suffered some behind-the-scenes problems and was pushed back to 2022, but the film finally seems to be in a solid place (at least, for now), even if that place is kind of surprising. According to World of Reel, Netflix has relented and allowed Dominik, who is most known ...

The 18 Best Horror Movies On Shudder Right Now

Arcadia wants to shut down sex therapist-radio host’s local studios

A zoning dispute in Arcadia has pitted a larger-than-life sex therapist against code enforcement officers and, along the way, involved a registered sex offender, an unprecedented court order for a surprise inspection and a painting of a half-nude Marilyn Monroe. The sex therapist and her colorful partner-slash-husband say they’re just misunderstood. The city, which initially suspected them of running an adult business, says they’re unlawfully converting their internet studios compound into a hom...

The 9 'thinking traps' stopping you from achieving your goals

In cognitive behavioural therapy, all thinking traps have one thing in common: as a general rule, they aren't realistic, nor are they helpful. Shutterstock As soon as something goes wrong in our lives, we tend to fall into negative "thinking traps." Not only do they prevent us from achieving our goals; they can have a serious effect on our health. Psychologist Elke Overdick says there's a way to rid yourself of some of these thinking traps.

Create Something Beautiful

This summer, I moved my entire office and crafting station, two separate areas in the house, into one room.

I looked for posters online and briefly in-store (not a lot in-store as it turns out) and found and that’s where my search ended! I created this photo wall with everything sourced at Poste...

The 20 Best Heist Movies Of All Time

Heist movies transcend genre. You can have frivolous, fun heist movies like "The Italian Job," or heartfelt, straight-faced ones like "Point Break." The heist itself can be meticulously planned and meditative, like the one in "Inside Man," or fall apart before it's even begun, as in "Good Time."To be clear, this is a list of heist films, not movies about con artists. "The Sting," "The Brothers Bloom," and "Gambit" are all brilliant, but the heist tropes -- planning the mission, gathering the tea...
