Watch Folding Ideas’ Analysis Of “Fight Club” And Toxic Masculinity

We're Going To Talk About Fight Club

Dan Olson is a boss. He’s a media critic from Alberta, Canada, who analyzes the rhetoric — the arguments presented and how they’re made — of pop cultural phenomena and products. So, film, video games, music videos, TV shows, and books, but also pop cultural movements; how they fit into and reflect the culture in which they’re made, and what ideas they’re presenting, not just through the messages they explicitly state, but through imagery, editing, theme, and context, as well. In other words, I’ve found a new favorite vlog. Keep reading »

Elderly People Dancing To “Turn Down For What” Will Get You Through Tuesday

Elderly People Dancing To "Turn Down For What" Will Get You Through Tuesday
"Fire Up Loud, Another Round Of Shots!"

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I love old people. Old people and babies are my weaknesses. So imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Tastefully Offensive‘s video called “Senior Citizens Dancing to ‘Turn Down For What.’” Just as you’d imagine, the video is a compilation of dozens of old people getting down with their bad selves, all to the sweet musical dewdrops of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What.” If this doesn’t get you through your Tuesday, I don’t know what will.

Also, to see one crunk elderly man that I recently witnessed bustin’ a move on the dance floor, check out my Instagram video after the jump and pray that one day you’ll be as cool as this guy. Keep reading »

4 Web Sites To Help You Find New Music And Look Hip

After studying music production, making music for several years (trust me, you’ve never heard it), booking tours, and doing scant engineering work here and there, I wet my toes in the world of music journalism for about two months, working as an intern for a startup music magazine a few years ago. It was a supremely messy operation and definitely not the field for me, but I did take away two things: First, live event photography is fun; second, and more relevant to this post, how to stay ahead of music so that you look cool when your friends are talking about music. Oh, and also so that you can listen to a vast diversity of bands and enjoy yourself doing so.

The internet makes it easy (thanks, internet!), because there are a few extremely thorough release calendars, a few of which are accompanied by reviews. My favorites, in order, are: Keep reading »

Armor And Weapons From “Game Of Thrones” Will Be On Display At The Met

MEGA cool: The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is going to be exhibiting the armor from “Game of Thrones” next month with an accompanying talk on arms and armaments featuring the series’ costume designer, Michele Clapton. She’ll be joined by post-minimalist artist Miya Ando and the Met’s curator in Arms and Armor, Pierre Terjanian.

(Have I mentioned before that a suit of armor belonging to an ancestor of mine is in the Met? Once upon a time the Viponds were barons; now we’re, y’know, writers. Well, anyway.) Keep reading »

Watch The Sweet Video For Kindness And Robyn’s “Who Do You Love”

M'awwwwww

Do you guys remember that viral video “First Kiss,” and how it turned out that yeah, the participants were strangers, but they were also actors and performers, and the video was also a clothing advertisement? I feel like this new video for “Who Do You Love” from electronic musician Kindness, featuring Robyn, is sort of karmic recompense for that.

Kindness explained the video concept for Pitchfork:

“This video and this song is about people and connection, and how you can identify who you are by those you love. Those people say a hell of a lot about you. Daniel’s idea was a series of portraits of our closest friends and family—in a way, the most revealing portraits of us possible.”

If You Got Lost During “Interstellar,” This Timeline Has You Covered (Spoilers!)

When we walked out of the theater after seeing “Interstellar” this weekend, the first thing my mom said was, “OK, you’re going to have to explain that whole movie to me.” She enjoyed the movie, and understood the science, but the logistics of the plot got lost in a wormhole somewhere.

Thank goodness for designers! If, like my mom, you lost track of who was where when and why, designer Dogan Can Gundogdu (of Turkish design firm Frametale, which works with film production houses to create destruction sequences — can I have this job?) has created a streamlined, easy-to-read timeline illustrating the plot of “Interstellar.” Spoilers ahead, obviously.
