This Aaron Sorkin Supercut Is the Greatest Supercut that Ever Will Be

In the internet sport of supercutting, it is currently hard for us to imagine something better than this. How could anything be better than this? Maybe if someone proved videographically that Star Wars and Casablanca are the same movie. Or maybe if someone did a supercut of all Jesus’ Tom Swifties and Spoonerisms. Or if […]

Die Antwoord, “Baby’s On Fire”

What is this? South African hip hop, and/or some kind of deranged club music — identified as “zef” by Die Antwoord. Die Antwoord is the duo of Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er (take that, Ke$ha) who, despite their convincing portrayal in this video, are not brother and sister. They are so not brother and sister that […]

In a Station of the Metro, Apparition of a Face

A disused Metro station in Paris has been transformed into an advertisement for Ridley Scott’s film Prometheus. The centerpiece is an eerie carved stone head, which also features prominently in the film’s poster. The film will have certain things in common with those of Scott’s Alien series (“strands of DNA,” as Scott has described it), […]

Adam Yauch, 1964-2012

You could make the case that Adam Yauch, also known as MCA, who died today, was the most important Beastie Boy. The other two—Ad Rock and Mike D—in the three-card-monty lyrical shuffle, you could be forgiven for confusing them. But there was never any doubt about which one was MCA. While the other two were […]

David Lynch’s “Crazy Clown Time” Video

Is it time for crazy clowns? Well, that depends. Is it time for a Salvador Dali mustache, flaming mohawk, football player and topless ladies all over the place? If it is time for those things, then it is Crazy Clown Time. No, it doesn’t make sense—it’s David Lynch. According to davidlynch.com, his new album Crazy […]

Rosario Dawson’s Comic Book Being Developed by A&E

Rosario Dawson created a comic book. You can be forgiven for not knowing this — it was back in 2006-07, ran for just four issues, and was called O.C.T.: Occult Crimes Taskforce. Rosario wrote it with David Atchison, it was drawn by Tony Shasteen, and even those of us who knew it existed never thought […]

Is This the Odd Future of Hip Hop? Well, Literally, Yes

If you’ve heard of Odd Future, you’ve likely heard about its issues. Some people will tell you that Odd Future is the end of rap. A sort of hip hop anti-Christ the likes of which we’ve never seen before. Worse, even, than the last hip hop anti-Christ. Hip hop experts Esquire said: “They make Eminem […]

Infinite Kung Fu Time Lapse

Here’s what I will say about kung fu movies: Not necessarily appealing. Some people here in the west see a kung fu movie and it’s a revelation, they instantly connect with it and they are hooked as kung fu fans for life. But others of us are like “Ehh.” I was an “Ehh.” I had […]
