    ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ Getting 70mm Re-Release (Trailer)

    This year, 2001: A Space Odyssey is probably one of the coolest things that’s turning 50 years old. To celebrate, Warner Bros. is putting the film back out in theaters, in newly struck 70mm prints made from the film’s original camera negative, and a bunch of other filmspeak that essentially boils down to: “It will look nice.” […]

    ‘The Sciences': Sleep’s First Album in 20 Years

    Stoner metal band Sleep released the genre’s definitive text in 1998, when Dopesmoker made its way to the world. Now, Sleep is back, with their first full-length release in 20 years.

    Baskin-Robbins Dunkin’ Donuts Ice Cream

    Dunkin-Donuts and Baskin’ Robbins — sorry, Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins — have joined forces for not one, not two, but three new flavors of coffee-flavored ice cream. And Baskin-Robbins Dunkin’ Donuts ice cream is coming to a grocery store (hopefully) near you sometime this spring. Interestingly, you won’t be able to get Baskin-Robbins Dunkin’ Donuts ice […]

    Lemon Lime & Cucumber Sprite Coming to the UK

    There’s a magnificent Jewish-style deli near my apartment, and I often go there for a sandwich when the mood strikes. One aspect of the deli experience I have not yet tried is cucumber soda, specifically Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray, which is considered by purists to be the perfect accompaniment to a pastrami sandwich. I might be […]

    ‘Onnanocos x Micro Drone': Short One-Take Film Shot by a Drone (Video)

    Most footage I’ve seen collected by drone cameras has that distinct “this is a drone camera” feeling. But there’s a new short film that was shot in one take with a micro-drone that actually looks pretty good, it out-Steadicams Steadicam in many ways. It’s called Onnanocos x Micro Drone. Onnanocos x Micro Drone is a superb act […]

    ‘Yo! MTV Raps’ is Coming Back in June

    2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the classic MTV series Yo! MTV Raps. Since MTV is still around, and rapping is still around, and shouting “yo!” is (nominally) still around, you’d have to be completely nuts to think a revival of the show isn’t on the way. And so it is, and here’s a partial guest list: […]

    April 22nd is Earth Day, and there are lots of way you can commemorate this. You can plant a tree, dig a lake, breathe some fresh air while you still can, and so on.

    Prince Discography Annotated by the Prince Estate

    Prince has one of the densest discographies of any recent artist, and truth be told most people only know the core biggies: Dirty Mind through Sign o’ the Times, with maybe the Batman soundtrack album thrown in for good measure. The Prince estate recently unveiled a new way to explore Prince’s famous discography, and will hopefully encourage a few fans to […]
