This Swedish musician is Grammy- and Oscar-nominated for ‘Black Panther’ and Childish Gambino work, and next is TV’s ‘Mandalorian’ Star Wars series

Ludwig Göransson heads to the Grammy Awards on Sunday with four chances to win – nominated three times for his collaborations with hip-hop artist Childish Gambino, and once for his score to the Marvel superhero film “Black Panther.” Two weeks later, he’ll slip back into his fancy clothes for a night at the Oscars where his “Black Panther” score is also nominated. So yeah, it’s a good month to be Ludwig Göransson, but as the 34-year-old talks about the journey from his hometown in Sweden to the b...

Isn't it interesting that the figure at the center of mass delusion is named Sandmann?

Wikipedia tells us:The Sandman is a mythical character in Western and Northern European folklore who puts people to sleep and brings good dreams by sprinkling magical sand onto the eyes of people while they sleep at night, i.e. rheum....Hans Christian Andersen's 1841 folk tale Ole Lukøje introduced the Sandman, named Ole Lukøje....There is nobody in the world who knows so many stories as Ole-Luk-Oie, or who can relate them so nicely.

Making Sense of the Phillips-Sandman Viral Video

Over the last couple days I’ve been watching the unfolding reaction and re-reactions to the video of the confrontation between Native American activist and elder Nathan Phillips and a crowd of high school students from Covington, Kentucky on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. The whole story is a good example of how we can react quickly to a zoomed in (both literally and metaphorically) video and miss a lot of what led up to it, as well as some key context. With that said, though, ...

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is a Superhero Movie About the Power of Art

Miles Morales is an artist. We’re introduced to the movie version of Miles (Shameik Moore) as he sits at a drawing table sketching a sword-wielding robot. On his way to school, he slaps custom sticker tags on street signs where he hopes his father, a police officer, won’t find them. When he wants to express the vastness of the shoes he has to fill — the “great expectations” of his elite schooling academy — he ventures underground with his uncle Aaron (Mahershala Ali) and creates ornate graf...

LA Opera’s ‘Hansel and Gretel’ goes ‘Where the Wild Things Are’

‘Tis the season for Christmas Carols, Nutcrackers and Messiahs. ‘Tis also the season when opera companies strive to find holiday offerings that, if not literally, at least in spirit, celebrate this festive time of the year.

The Top 10 ’80s Movie Soundtracks

The top 10 ’80s movie soundtracks Music happens to be one of the most important aspects of a movie. Take Star Wars or Harry Potter, for example. The theme music is one of the most memorable aspects of both those films. If it weren’t for the soundtracks, some films wouldn’t even be watchable. The ’80s were an especially interesting time, sonically speaking. That’s when MTV rose to popularity. In the early ’80s, punk rock was still going strong. By the end of the decade, new wave and metal band...

The Sandman #4 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby The Sandman v1 #4, 1975 - The super-heroic fantasy series allows for many surrealistic landscapes and creatures. Jack Kirby illustrates them all with relish. Certain scenes appear to have been inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, but executed in the artist's own unique way. Kirby's cover continues the theme of an endangered sleeping innocent, but seems annoyingly [Author: Ted F]

The encroaching ape on the left also looks uncomfortably squeezed into the remaining negative space. Kirby's uniquely graphic drawing skills are evident though the cover just falls below expectations. Ernie Chua (Chan) draws [Author: Ted F]

The 25 worst superhero movies of all time, ranked from bad to unwatchable

Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War" is on the horizon and the anticipation for the most ambitious crossover event in history is sky-high. But not all superhero movies are preceded by so much excitement and many are followed by extreme disappointment. Business Insider compiled a list of the most infamous superhero movies that have the unfortunate distinction of being the worst in the genre (which has also generated a lot of great movies, including this year's "Black Panther"). Many of these movies...

Leslie told me she had written a graphic novel, and pulled a copy of her book from the shelves, which I then bought (but haven't read yet as there are too many signings to go to), and then she agreed to do our standard interview....

Mr. Sandman

When Tasha and I got back from our walk through the vineyards on Wednesday morning, I noticed that the sand tractor had been on our street. In addition to a fine layer of sand on the snow, there were these tire tracks where the tractor turned around. This is where the asphalt ends and the road becomes a dirt and gravel path to the vines. Pretty nifty, eh? The light snow stopped shortly after we got home, but the temperature stayed just below freezing all day. I had a nice hot soup for ready fo...

'Black Dog: the Dreams of Paul Nash' Gives Chaotic Reality to the Dreamscapes of a War-haunted Painter

"If you want your work to have any value in such a chaotic world," says a cartoonishly proportioned art critic at the onset of the First World War, "you're going to have to engage with it. Comment, criticize it, take it apart, and remake it in your own image." The words appear in a translucently white talk balloon—only one of the innovations Black Dog introduces to the graphic novel form as artist Dave McKean actualizes his character's apocalyptic advice.
