The man brave enough to cut up an MV Agusta F4 Senna

Cutting up an MV Agusta F4 Senna is a gutsy move. The F4 is a surefire future classic, and the Senna version’s carbon bits, and upgraded suspension and brakes, make it even tastier. Plus, MV Agusta only ever built three hundred of them—so it’s rare too. But when Robert Wilson got his hands on a 2007-model F4 1000 Senna, he just couldn’t help himself. And since he found it with none of its stock bodywork intact, he didn’t feel too bad about tearing into a 173 hp superbike that cost $29,995 whe...

Stunning Warner Music Defeat vs Madonna 'Vogue' Co-Writer

A Manhattan federal appeals court has found that Warner Music Group is guilty of wrongfully withholding royalties from the co-writer behind Madonna’s hit song “Vogue.” Two years ago, Robert ‘Shep’ Pettibone filed a lawsuit against the label claiming that both WMG and publishing division Warner/Chappell “withheld and failed to pay” royalties owed to him from the 1990 hit, despite demands and a notice of breach. The money was seemingly being held back in order to recoup legal fees spent o...

The Silent Resistance

By: Peter Strickland For Lent, I decided I would stop playing with my phone. I want to break the incessant habit of looking at my phone every time I have reason to do anything else. I have realized that I am addicted to looking at that little screen. Any break I get at class, I immediately look at my phone. Sometimes, it is impossible to resist the urge to check what made it vibrate. Standing in line at the store, I better check the headlines. Getting into the car, getting out of the car, ma...

‘Apollo 11’ Director on Editing 11,000 Hours of Footage Into a Coherent Movie [Interview]

During the 2019 SXSW Film Festival, I sat down with Apollo 11 director Todd Douglas Miller and space historian Robert Pearlman.
