It is, in the wider sense, a zombie film (the creatures might be infected rather than undead but we aren’t exactly sure). It does have a blood aspect, at the heart of it (that I’ll cover in the article), but completely removes the nocturnal aspect that was a feature of both book and the more mainstream makes. However the reason for looking at it is that it was based directly on I am Legend, ...

Van Gogh’s Ugliest Masterpiece: A Break Down of His Late, Great Painting, The Night Café (1888)

Ask passersby to name a Vincent van Gogh painting off the top of their heads, and most will come up with works like The Starry Night, The Potato Eaters, one of his self-portraits (probably with his ear bandaged), or maybe the one with the smoking skeleton David Sedaris used for a book cover.

Why You Should Never Doubt the Value of Human Curation

For better or for worse, we live in the age of the algorithm. Remember when you used to log into your Facebook account and you’d be presented strictly with a reverse chronological view of your “news feed.” And when you “liked” or “followed” a business page, you’d be shown every one of their posts in the same way that you’d see all of your friends’ posts in that same reverse chronological view? Those days are gone. Remember when you’d go over to YouTube and the front page would be populated with...
