Promo Trailer for German Film 'O Beautiful Night' Playing at Berlinale

"If you can survive this, nothing can kill you." The Match Factory has debuted an official promo trailer for the German indie drama O Beautiful Night, which is premiering at the Berlin Film Festival this month. The film marks the feature debut of Xaver Böhm, and it's a highly saturated, neon-lit, poetic journey into the existential realm. The plot is about a guy named Juri who encounters Death one night, who takes him on an Alice in Wonderland-esque trip upon which he falls in love with a wo...

The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen from Black Directors

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week we give a nod towards Black History Month with a look at some of the best, little-seen films from black filmmakers.) Great films and filmmakers are worth celebrating all year round, but we live in a world that likes to categorize and quantify, meaning February has been designated as Black History Month (and Women in Horror month too f...

On Black Girl Magic and Georgia Anne Muldrow's Latest, 'Overload'

None The song "Vital Transformation" is solemn yet expansive, austere yet hopeful. It floats along, kickdrum and handclap accents punctuating the lyrics instead of marking four-on-the-floor. The song itself a swirl, it begins with the swirling, layered incantation, "transforming changing higher spiraling higher", repeated three times, along with the insistence, "it's vital". The lyrics read like stanzas of poetry on the page, but take on a warm, relatable quality when their author, Georgia Anne...

Comment on oat and wheat sandwich bread by Nina

I also just made this bread – also a huge hit (gone before I could even use it for sandwiches!) and am now in a similar situation. Would love to hear your thoughts about using steel cut oats instead of rolled oats! Thanks!

Rediscover Your Favorite Songs With Lifehacker's Cover Song Playlist

Back in the day, all the big singers shared the same songbook: a canon of folk tunes, jazz standards, and borrowed Broadway numbers.

Folk Artist Michael McArthur Shares Stirring New Visual for "Save Me From the Fire" (premiere)

None In the midst of a burgeoning career, Michael McArthur did what many singer-songwriters may find unthinkable—he took a break. Requiring respite after years of constant writing, touring, and performing, McArthur spent some time away from his musical passions to focus on repairing his relationship with his spouse and himself. Ever Green, Ever Rain is the result of the folk artist's return to it all after taking what restful moments he had self-prescribed. Fading lines between whimsy and wisdo...

Best roadside lookouts in the US

Road trips are about a great many things. Cool playlists of the best song about every state. Excuses to eat more fast food in a week than you have since 2014. Gas station bathrooms. But they’re also about breaking up the monotony of the open road with a rest at a scenic lookout over something you’ve never seen before. It could be a mountain range, sprawling desert, or sweeping view of a modern city, but there’s something about scenic viewpoints that make us want to take a few minutes and appr...

Other Fiction Bremer, Fredrika: Nina. V1 [German] 16.1.2019

Die hierzulande so gut wie unbekannte schwedische Autorin Fredrika Bremer, die den Roman "Nina" im Jahre 1835 in ihrer Heimat erstveröffentlichte, genießt in Schweden den Status einer Initiatorin der nationalen Frauenemanzipation, und durch Übersetzung ihrer Werke ins Englische fanden diese im gesamten angelsächsischen Sprachraum einen bemerkenswerten Widerhall, was 1851 sogar dazu führte, dass ein County im US-Staat Iowa ihr zu Ehren den Namen "Bremer County" erhielt. Wenn man "Nina" heute mit...

‘Stan and Ollie’ Star Steve Coogan on Bringing the Iconic Comedy Duo to Life [Interview]

There are few things more satisfying than having modern-day actors pay worthy tribute to their legendary predecessors, and the easily lovable biopic Stan & Ollie, from director Jon S. Baird, is almost nothing but that, with Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly (along with some awards-worthy makeup) portraying arguably the greatest comedy duo in film history, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. The movie documents a period in the later years of their career, during which the two are having less success...

Gillette's New Campaign Inspires Men to Re-Think What it Means To Be Their Best

Thirty years after first introducing the tagline “The Best A Man Can Get,” Gillette is taking a fresh look at what it means to be “the best” and how we continue to portray those ideals in a modern way. Because in a world where the actions of the few can taint the reputation of the many, we know there’s work to be done – together. “Gillette believes in the best in men,” said Gary Coombe, president, P&G Global Grooming. “By holding each other accountable, eliminating excuses for bad behavior, a...

The Bachelor Season 23 Premiere Recap: Like Sloths To A Flame

These days, a good Bachelor is hard to find. Which means that every Bachelor has two missions: To fall in love, and to prove to the viewers that he’s at all ready for that love. I hesitate to say that Colton Underwood isn’t ready for love — who is? — but, from the premiere of The Bachelor season 23, I can say definitively that he’s got a chip on his shoulder about all of this. Colton reads the comments section. He may even comment back. Which, like it or not, is going to make an interesting sea...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well!

Jill complained to Nina, "Rosey told me that you told her the secret I told you not to tell her." "Well," replied Nina in a hurt tone, "I told her not to tell you I told her." "Oh dear!" sighed Jill. "Well, don't tell her I told you that she told me." Received from Clean Laffs.

Joe Mooney: It's Mutual

Following my post on Joe Mooney's Wait Till You See Her a week ago, I received a high level of emails from readers who didn't know much about Mooney but loved what they heard. The same was true at Facebook, where there was quite a lot of traffic in favor of the lounge singer-organist-accordionist. [Photo above of Joe Mooney and his accordion with Decca's Milt Gabler, rear, and Morty Palitz in December 1946, by William P.

St. Giuseppe Moscati: A Holy Doctor

In our era — when euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide have become legal in many places — we need to look to the example of Saint Giuseppe Moscati, an Italian doctor from the early 20th century who had true compassion for his patients. St. Giuseppe Moscati was born in Benevento, Italy on July 25, 1880, the seventh of nine children of devout Catholic parents. The family moved to Naples when Giuseppe was four years old, and he lived there for the rest of his life. He graduated from the Univer...

Lynne Ramsay on Defying Clichés in ‘You Were Never Really Here’ and Her Thoughts on Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker [Interview]

Lynne Ramsay was never really trying to break the mold. The director of this year’s critical darling You Were Never Really Here chooses her movies with discretion, with a six-year gap between the Joaquin Phoenix-starring noir thriller and her last film, the haunting psychological drama We Need to Talk About Kevin. Only four feature films total populate Ramsay’s entire catalogue, each of them critically beloved, each of them inflicting a different kind of violence upon the audience. “We’ve seen ...

Keep Calm And Curry On At Spice I Am, Surry Hills

It was a cold Friday night in Sydney. There we were: Nina, her mum Karen, Garth, Mr NQN and I at a pub. The smell of the food wafting from the kitchen was great but alas there wasn't much vegetarian on offer. So Nina and I were scrambling on our phones for somewhere closeby to eat. It also had to be cheap and cheerful and fast and within one suburb's distance from us in Paddington. And that's how we ended up at Spice I Am in Surry Hills.
