We spend a lot of money on big, new, fancy cameras in order to capture perfection: a golden sunset over clear Caribbean waters, a young budding poppy hidden among a field of wildflowers, or the exhilarated smile after a last minute basket. We become set on capturing beauty and joy in its most perfect form….

Missed the Mad Men premiere last weekend? No worries! Ian Philbrick breaks down the episode, so that you’re all set for episode two!

Pale-skinned, blood-sucking creatures of the night, spend their time listening to obscure music and traipsing around the ruins of Detroit. No, this isn’t a documentary about Midtown, but you can be forgiven for thinking so. These are the subjects of Jim Jarmusch’s latter-day vampire film, Only Lovers Left Alive, a film that revels so much…

Following the artist’s declining presence in the US since his initial splash on to the top charts in 2010, Talk Dirty is Jason Derulo’s shameless attempt to emulate the “Top 40” sound and get back on the map. The album, consisting largely of synthetic beats supporting weak, cookie-cutter rap and entirely too much auto tune,…

  In some ways, Ingrid Michaelson is like Nutella: sweet, addicting, and great in endless creative combinations. This has certainly proven to be the case in her latest release, Lights Out, in which the singer trades out her trademark indie style for a more polished, mainstream sound. Unlike so many artists, for whom stylistic transitions…

Brown twisting twigs support white and pastel pink flowers. The blooms’ sweet scent floats in the warm breeze running off the Tidal Basin while, across the water, the flowers blend into puffy clouds. With their visual and olfactory aesthetics, the trees at the Cherry Blossom festival are works of art. This idea, that nature is…

It’s Sunday at 9PM. You and your friends gather around your television—or more likely, the HBO GO screen on your laptop—and settle in for the new episode of Game of Thrones. The cellos and basses strike that familiar chord, and you are transported to Westeros, the Wall, or wherever your White Walker heart desires. Though…

Character development in the superhero genre is harder than you would think. With numerous writers and artists presenting the cape and cowl crowd over and over again, it’s hard for radical changes and development in a character to really have lasting power. Sometimes, these changes are not done for the right reason or are just…

In the fall of 2009, a series of new pilots from all the big broadcast networks were dropped onto iTunes for free, as they are at the beginning of every broadcast season.
