Far Out vs. Hot Dang, Vol. 18

We're back, and we are obviously not refreshed. Because, really, look at the Hot Dang side of this week's Far Out vs. Hot Dang. There's a lot of disappointment there. This whole "serotonin levels" thing is a bitch. Or maybe we're just reflecting the zeitgeist? Maybe we're totally healthy and society is sick? Where's the [...]

Arts Roundup: Mumblecore and Moombahton Edition

Hello! In today's WaPo, Ann Hornaday tackles the topic of extreme realism on our big screens—what with Blue Valentine and Alamar representing "yet two more films we're seeing more of these days, which prefer vernacular that isn't the high-polish, confected characterizations and neat three-act structures of mainstream Hollywood.

Morning Roundup: Pink Floyd, Quentin Tarantino, and Lindsay Lohan Lawsuits Edition

Morning, readers.
*Pink Floyd takes action against its record label, EMI, over a dispute for online royalties. EMI should know by now: "How can you have your pudding if you don't eat any meat?"
*She & Him release their newest school-themed music video for "In the Sun," further proving my theory that M. Ward looks like Robert [...]

A Personal Vendetta: Leno, Oprah Against the Audience

A lot of people love Oprah. It’s just a fact of life. I spent many a day in high school plopped on the couch with my mom at four o’clock, generally sobbing at some person’s tragic life story. But today, I’m mad at her. (Oprah, that is, not my mom – my mom is awesome.)
