‘Unbreakable’ Was a Superhero Movie Years Ahead of Its Time

The worldwide theatrical release of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass this week has prompted a rush of appreciation online for Unbreakable, the first in what became a trilogy of superhero films spread out over nineteen years. With its deconstructionist take on superhero mythology, the 2000 flick, starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, anticipated the great wave of 21st-century comic book movies and TV shows grounded in pseudo-realism. Everything from The Dark Knight trilogy to the Marvel Cin...

The Artistry Behind an All-White Painting: A Short Art History Lesson on Minimalism and the All-White Painting

“I could do that” goes the refrain of philistines at modern art galleries, sometimes followed by a “Hell, my dog/cat/baby/elephant could do that!” Sophisticates smirk knowing smirks. Oh no, sir or madam, they most certainly could not. But maybe everyone, at some level, comes across Agnes Martin’s White Stone or Jo Baer’s Untitled (White Square Lavender) and thinks it looks like someone “just took a tube of white paint and spread it on a canvas.” It's tempting to imagine, notes Vox in the...

Ezra Klein Interviews Anil Dash on Tech and Ethics

On his podcast for Vox this week, Ezra Klein (journalist, political commentator and editor-at-large) discusses tech with CEO of Glitch, Anil Dash. From the ways algorithms veil our real-life choices to the concept of “neutral” products, the two talk about the issues surrounding tech and how important it is that we create and “maintain our ethical standards as new technologies expand into uncharted territories.” One of …

Tucker Carlson slams markets, echoes rhetoric of leftists

SACRAMENTO – When I heard Fox News’ host Tucker Carlson’s rambling attack on “market capitalism,” I was reminded of that circular theory of politics. Some political thinkers go so far to the right that they end up around the bend on the left and vice versa. Some of Carlson’s monologue could have been spewed by any modern progressive. It reminded me not just of the unpredictable ideological places that President Trump has taken the GOP, but specifically of Hillary Clinton’s infamous credo, “It ta...

Spain: Vox and the rise of the collectivist Right

Spain: Vox and the rise of the collectivist Right Since 2016, right-wing populist parties have been on the rise in Europe: National Rally (formerly the National Front) in France, the League in Italy, the Party for Freedom in Netherlands, Vlaams Belang in Flanders, and the Alternative for Germany are but a few examples. Yet the Iberian Peninsula – Spain and Portugal – has been an exception. It was said that countries such as my native Spain resisted the so-c...

Spain’s far-right Vox party allies with mainstream rivals

MADRID (AP) — Spain’s far-right Vox party has edged toward the political mainstream, dropping its more extremist positions to help form a regional government in Andalusia. The anti-migrant, anti-feminist and euroskeptic party played kingmaker by supporting an alliance of the conservative Popular Party and the center-right Citizens party that is poised to end 36 years […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Tax Proposal Isn't As "Radical" As Some Say

In an interview with Anderson Cooper on Sunday's 60 Minutes, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed a higher tax on the super-wealthy as part of a plan to finance the Green New Deal program.Both the tax policy (what we know of it, at least) and the GND are ambitious. The GND, is actually one of the boldest climate-change and economic policies to be discussed in Congress — ever. It aims to cut carbon emissions to keep climate change from plunging the world into a complete Doomsday scenario, whi...

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital is being criticized for leaving some patients with surprisingly big medical bills

Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital is being criticized after a Vox article detailed how its insurance practices are leaving some patients with high emergency room bills. The public hospital is considered 'out-of-network' for all private insurance holders — meaning patients involved in traumatic events are often blindsided by its billing practices after being taken to the hospital via ambulance.  In 2015, the hospital was renamed after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg when he and his wif...

Reading Goals For 2019

One of the things I want to do more of in 2019 is read. I’ve loved reading as a past time since the first grade, and it’s something that – like many of our favorites – gets pushed aside as we get older when family and work responsibilities take precidence. This year, I need more of the things I love. NEED. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is sit on my deck, reading a book in the sun. In the winter, my reading has typically slowed down because I don’t have a “reading spot” like I do ...

Zuckerberg San Francisco General has arranged for all ER care to be out-of-network, allowing the hospital to charge whatever wild prices it likes. VOX: Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG), recently renamed for the Facebook founder after he donated $75 million, is the largest public hospital in San Francisco and the city’s only top-tier trauma center. But it doesn’t participate in the networks of any private health insurers — a surprise patients like Dang learn after assuming their coverage...

All The Rage: Paying To Break Things When You're Stressed

There is something undeniably satisfying about witnessing a demolition — a house of cards toppling, the leveling of a fire-ravaged edifice, or even watching an action movie. It’s even better when you’re the person doing the demolishing (think: popping bubble wrap), so it was only a matter of time before someone commodified this feeling.Anger rooms, or rage rooms, are marketed as equal parts entertainment and self-care. For anywhere between $30 and $390, you can suit up in coveralls, helmets, an...

‘True Detective’ Season 3 Early Buzz: The HBO Series is a Compelling Return to Form

True Detective season 3 comes four years after the second season of the HBO crime anthology series debuted to abysmal reviews, a far cry from the pop culture phenomenon and career renaissance for star Matthew McConaughey that season 1 spawned. Since then, the show has gone from phenomenon to meme, to embarrassment, with the aforementioned McConaughaissance waning just as the anthology series trend begins to fade. But creator Nic Pizzolatto brings back the HBO crime drama armed with Oscar-winnin...

Motivation Over Discipline

There’s a popular maxim in personal development circles that goes: “F**k motivation. It’s fickle and unreliable and isn’t worth your time. Better to cultivate discipline.” Everywhere you look these days, people are exalting the sentiment behind this mantra; they’re down on motivation and high on discipline. Your Instagram feed is probably full of “influencers” shouting at you to get disciplined. Discipline, discipline, discipline! We used to beat the discipline drum ourselves. In fact, we were...

Crawling from the wreckage

Things are tough all over — but especially in the digital media business of 2018. Probably the most high-profile flameout this year was at Mic, which laid off most of its staff ahead of an acquisition by Bustle. Mic had raised nearly $60 million in funding, with major media organizations like Time Warner and Bertelsmann writing checks for the company’s vision of delivering news to a millennial audience. But Mic’s issues were just the capstone to a long year of shutdowns and layoffs. Among the he...

Where Did the Monk’s Haircut Come From? A New Vox Video Explains the Rich and Contentious History of the Tonsure

One might assume from a modern viewpoint that the hairstyles worn by monks arose to deal with male pattern baldness anxiety. As in the school uniform approach, you can’t single out one person’s baldness when everyone is bald. But this, again, would be a modern view, full of the vanity the tonsured—those with religiously shaven heads—ostensibly vowed to renounce. According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the tonsure (from the Latin verb for “to shear”) began as a “badge of slavery” among Gr...

Who would have thought the history of a monastic hairstyle could be so interesting?

For close to two thousand years, holy men from across the wide spectrum of the Christianity have rocked a completely or entirely shaved head--a hairstyle called a tonsure. A tonsure marked those that wore it as adherents to various monastic and priestly orders and, in some cases, were a symbol of controversy in the early Catholic church as opposing factions within it fought for legitimacy. This brief video from Vox outlines the history of the haircut, what it means and why it survived in a ra...

‘The Office’ Producer Mike Schur Explains How the Series Survived a Doomed First Season

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more beloved comedy series than The Office. Fans are endlessly watching reruns now that they’re playing on Comedy Central all the time, and they’ve also watched the series over and over again as one of the most popular library titles on Netflix. But The Office wasn’t always a hit. In fact, the first season of the series was mostly seen as a failure, and the show was nearly doomed from the beginning. So how did the show survive seemingly insurmountable odds? The O...
