Who Said It? Rust Cohle From “True Detective” Or Jaden Smith?

Who Said It? Rust Cohle From "True Detective" Or Jaden Smith?

“Someone once told me, ‘Time is a flat circle.’ Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again,” Rust Cohle once mused. That means that every nihilistic tweet that philosopher Jaden Smith has ever dispatched is doomed to be tweeted and tweeted and tweeted forever.

If that thought’s not enough to make you question the metaphysical complexities of this world, then allow us to take a stab at it. After T Magazine published an interview on Monday with Smith we began to wonder where the consciousness of Jaden ended and Rust’s began. So, we’ve compiled a list of 10 quotes, belonging to either the chilling lead of HBO’s “True Detective” or the star of “The Karate Kid.”

Can you tell which quote belongs to the hunter of the Yellow King and which belongs to vessel of Prana energy? Keep reading »

Every Track From Taylor Swift’s 1989, Ranked

We first heard inklings that life-size Precious Moments statue Taylor Swift was moving in a new direction on 2012’s smash, Red. It was singles like “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “22,” and “I Knew You Were Trouble” that saw the starlet shedding her country curls and flirty sundresses for all the faux-edginess that accompanies a pair of Forever 21 leather shorts. But it’d take Swift two more years to bury those country roots and pursue the pop stardom she’s flirted with forever.

The official announcement came via Yahoo! stream in August that Swift’s next album, 1989, would see the singer embark on a pop sojourn with a trusted fleet of producers including Max Martin and Shellback. The news was accompanied by the release of her music video for the album’s first single, “Shake It Off.”

Once the screams of fervent Swifties died down, many casual fans were left to wonder if the album would be all brand: Would her trademark ballads of heartbreak and triumph be swapped for an album shilling 13 songs that sounded like a Diet Coke ad? “Out of the Woods” offered hope, but nothing was certain until the album’s midnight Monday release.

We’ve done you the courtesy of ranking the album’s songs from best to meh, in order to make the Swift fanfare easier to parse. Keep reading »

Dear Connie Britton
Amelia's somewhat creepy love letter to the "Nashville" star. Read More »

Nashville will no longer sit by and fulfill your stereotype of a sleepy country music town populated by starving songwriters in cowboy boots with acoustic guitars. Rather, it’s a city that’s fast-tracking itself to become the South’s most thriving metropolis, with flourishing new neighborhoods offering the best in music, food, and culture, all without sacrificing the heritage of southern hospitality and charm. (It’s also the setting of the new ABC drama “Nashville,” starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, which premieres tonight at 10/9C.) The next time you stop through, make sure to sample the diverse atmosphere and discover what each corner of Music City has to offer.
