Disbanded: Rest in peace R.E.M.

It wasn’t the first time I had heard R.E.M., but the video for “Losing My Religion” was what initially drew me to the band. The video was visually stunning —brilliantly directed by film director Tarsem Singh — and after watching it, I couldn’t really see the band in any other light. I instantly had a mad crush on […]

Sounding off: Paulie Lipman: The portrait of a poet

For more than a decade, Paulie Lipman has been writing and performing poetry. All along, he’s wanted one thing: to get a reaction out of people. “Isn’t that what art is?” Asked the 35-year-old poet. “Getting an emotional response?”

Of course, there’s plenty of emotion in slam poetry, which is known for its high energy and audience feedback.

Then I found out about slam.”

Tired Pony-The Place We Ran From

What do you get when you put together Snow Patrol, R.E.M. and Belle and Sebastian? Sheer genius. Gary Lightbody, the voice of Snow Patrol, pulled some strings to create the indie supergroup of the year. He tapped one of his heroes, guitarist Peter Buck of R.E.M., Belle and Sebastian drummer Richard Colburn and tied it up with Young Fresh Fellows member Scott McCaughey to get the right “country” sound he was looking for. Having always aspired to create a country album, he wanted to get the right mix, though it may be considered more folk than country.

Creepy mystery makes its way to Starz

Creepy mystery makes its way to Starz

Michael Shannon has the most frighteningly psychotic face in cinema today. After watching the Werner Herzog directed crime film “My son, my son, what have ye done?” it is pretty clear. The film is loosely based on the true story of a man who basically lost all of his senses and then slayed his mother with a saber. David Lynch produces this noirish mystery.
