    Whizzy: Peter Dinklage Used to Be in a “Funk-Punk” Band

    Today is what we in the culture content creation industry refer to as a “slow news day,” which means that among other things it’s time to dig into the archives and see what celebrities of today were in bands in the 90s. NME dug up the latest example – Game of Thrones and X-Men: Days […]

    “NETFLIX IS A JOKE” Billboards Pop Up in NY and LA

    When I first saw this story, I got all excited to write about some good old-fashioned anti-advertising, as a kind of tonic to the deluge of marketing and ads that saturates modern life. But, as it turns out, the new “NETFLIX IS A JOKE” billboards that have been spotted in New York and Los Angeles […]

    Bobby Hundreds x Roger Rabbit Collab Teased on Instagram

    Let’s face it – Roger Rabbit, with his read overalls and giant, independently emotive ears, has been a style icon for decades. Now the star of the beloved theatrical cartoon short subject series along with fellow icon Baby Herman just might be teaming up with The Hundreds‘ founder Bobby Hundreds for some kind of Bobby […]

    Onnit ‘Star Wars’ Fitness Equipment (Video)

    One thing I’ve noticed watching the Star Wars movies, you never hear anybody say anything about going to the gym. You never see any Imperial gyms on board any of the Empire’s giant spacecraft, and you never see any gyms in the background on Tatooine or Hoth. The closest thing to a gym I can […]

    ‘Hostiles': Upcoming Christian Bale Western (Trailer)

    Westerns – they used to be everywhere, but now it’s a special treat for the discerning viewer whenever they pop up in a multiplex near you/them. The latest is Hostiles, an apparently dark and violent entry in the genre starring Christian Bale and directed by Scott Cooper – which makes this a little Out of […]

    ‘Once Upon a Time in Shaolin’ is Now on eBay

    The literally one of a kind Wu-Tang Clan album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, which you are probably sick of hearing about by now, was the source of much controversy and vitriol even from members of the group itself when it fell into the hands of pharmaceutical industry villain Martin Shkreli. Now, he’s put […]

    McDonald’s McCafé Coffee Line Gets Brand Makeover

    I’ve often heard people say that even if you wouldn’t expect it, you can get good, cheap coffee at McDonald’s. Evidently, the fast food chain is no longer content with that whole unsung diamond in the rough vibe, because the McDonald’s McCafé line of coffee beverages has received a brand makeover that seems to be […]

    World’s Tallest Sand Castle is in Duisburg, Germany (Video)

    In the western hemisphere, summer has drawn to a close with Labor Day weekend having come and gone. So it very nearly qualifies as psychological and emotional (self-) torture to think about sand castles in early September, but the Guinness Book of World Records has given me no choice but to do so, with a […]

    ‘Snapped: Notorious Tupac Shakur’ Documentary Trailer (Video)

    First Biggie gets an A&E documentary, then Tupac follows close behind with a documentary of his own on Oxygen – I’d suggest this as an either less or more likely pairing of documentary subject and cable channel, but I honestly don’t know how Oxygen’s programming slate compares to A&E – and this documentary is specifically […]
