    “Welcome Home”: Spike Jonze Directs FKA Twigs for Apple HomePod (Video)

    Bad news for art-damaged counterculturists who want to completely ignore commercials from massive corporations: Apple has enlisted Spike Jonze and FKA Twigs for a piece that bridges the gap between short film and advertisement for their new voice controlled HomePod. It’s called “Welcome Home.” I’m actually pretty annoyed at how cool “Welcome Home” is. It […]

    ‘Music from The Transformers’: Soundtrack Available for First Time

    It’s safe to say that the 1980s Transformers toy line has been a resounding success. There’ve been TV shows, movies, and toys, toys, toys, but for one reason or another there’s never been a proper soundtrack release for the music from the original TV series.

    Hey, any Rob Zombie fans out there? Anybody out there interested in the artist’s six solo albums since 1998?
