REMAINDERS WRAPUP

We had a great time in Minneapolis even though the average temperature was 400 degrees below Pluto (although T-shirt-wearing local people kept telling me it was "warm for May"). The audience at our show was great and kept demanding encores even after we ran out of songs. Some audience members also hurled thongs onto the stage, although we later learned they had been purchased by our manager, Ted Habte-Gabr. Anyway, it was fun. Here's a photo of Steve King, Janine (Mrs. Mitch Albom) Sabino an...

CIA warns 3+ people linked to Jamal Khashoggi that Saudi Arabia may now target them

The CIA and security services of one or more foreign governments have recently warned at least three friends and colleagues of the murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi that their pro-democracy work “has made them and their families the targets of potential retaliation from Saudi Arabia,” reports TIME. It wasn't only me. CIA sent warnings about at least three activists who were close to Jamal Khashoggi, one of whom was also taken into protection. Great work on this piece from @JoshMeyerD...

‘Long Shot’ Director Jonathan Levine on the Soundtracks to His Movies and Life [Interview]

“Music inspires you to keep making images,” director Jonathan Levine says. The director of The Wackness, 50/50, and the new Seth Rogen–Charlize Theron rom-com, Long Shot, constantly finds himself inspired by music. Whether he’s writing or thinking of the mood for a movie, music is on his mind. His love for music was evident from the start of his career with The Wackness, but his movies that followed have been packed with songs that fit just right. With Long Shot, he was mostly inspired by music...

Bringing Back Lapsed Catholics

Editor’s note: The following is adapted from Stephen Auth’s The Missionary of Wall Street. You can hear more thoughts of a modern missionary at Sophia Institute Press. People fall away from the Church for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes they rebelled when they were young: they rejected the Church because they were rejecting their parents and everything their parents made them do. Going to Mass was part of the package. They might have made some life decision they knew the Church didn’t app...

What’s it Like to Travel in Liechtenstein?

I have a thing for small countries. I can’t stop travelling to them! Whether it’s Tonga, Brunei, the Maldives, or eSwatini — if ever I find myself in close proximity to a teeny-tiny country, it’s likely I’ll start making plans to hop on over to it. I find it fascinating to discover what it’s like to live in a country many people can’t locate on a map. When I planned a trip to Zurich, then, I knew there was no way I wouldn’t be making the journey into neighbouring Liechtenstein. And I loved it! W...

Nicolas Cage Angrily Singing ‘Purple Rain’ At A Karaoke Bar Is The Most Relatable Thing I’ve Ever Seen

Let it all out, Nic!! It’s real easy to judge people when you’re on the outside looking in, especially when that someone is a celebrity as famous as Nicolas Cage. Celebrities don’t have regular people problems, they’re obscenely wealthy and they all have great skin and get free shit everywhere they go, so usually I’m all for having a laugh at their expense. But listen dude, we’ve all got our own shit going on, and sometimes the right thing to do is just say, “shit, man, that blows.” So th...

Freddie Mercury Reimagined as Comic Book Heroes

Pop culture thrives on superheroes, both fictional and real. This isn’t unique in human history. Read most any collection of ancient myth and literature and you’ll find the same. The demigods and chieftains beating their chests and talking trash in the Iliad, for example, remind me of macho professional wrestlers or characters in the Marvel and DC universes, cultural artifacts indebted in their various ways to classical legends. One thread runs through all of the epic tales of heroes and heroin...
