How to Visit New York Comic-Con’s ‘Westworld’ and Maybe Never Leave
News

A faded black “X” still marks my left pinkie finger, the one I suggested – with almost no hesitation – should be chopped off if the need were to arise. More than the white cowboy hat, the short conversation with a hostess in a dimly lit saloon, the whiskey and brandy drinks, that black X is the strongest reminder of my short visit to the fictional, but for a brief time very real, Westworld. Westworld: The Experience is a bit...

Former Titans GM on Avoiding Colin Kaepernick Hire: ‘Don’t Want This Circus’
News

Floyd Reese, the general manager of the Tennessee Titans from 1994 until 2006, offered three reasons why he believes the franchise decided to sign Brandon Weeden instead of Colin Kaepernick this week to be their backup quarterback – a move that angered many NFL fans. The first, Reese argues, is that Kaepernick doesn’t fit the scheme. Whereas someone like Marcus Mariota moves to throw, Reese said, Kaepernick is most comfortable “moving to run.” Secondly, since Kaepernick isn’t a “pocket passer,”...

Walk The Moon Get Back To Their Rock Roots On New LP, ‘What If Nothing”
News

Walk the Moon lit up the pop world in 2014 with “Shut Up and Dance,” a giddy love song that’s become a staple of baseball-stadium dance-cam breaks and sweaty parties thanks to its anthemic, commanding chorus and jittery, Eighties-inflected feel. With their new record What If Nothing, the Cincinnati-based band is ready to show fans what else it can do. “Obviously spread us around the globe, but it also created an interesting… luxury problem for us,”...

‘Walking Out’ Review: Survivalist Story Hits the Father-Son Sweet Spot
News

What if Jack London wrote rugged nature tales about his father issues? Filmmakers Alex and Andrew J. Smith’s drama is an adaption of a short story from travel writer David Quammen, but you can clearly see the influence – and could easily imagine the Call of the Wild author seeing their male weepie about a son, a stoic dad and the snowy mountains of Montana and silently wiping his manly tears on his flannel shirtsleeves. David (Josh Wiggins) is a...

Review: Marilyn Manson Gets Back to His Shock-Rock Roots
News

Two years after releasing the surprisingly mature goth-metal offering The Pale Emperor, Marilyn Manson has returned to straight-ahead shock. “I write songs to fight and to fuck to,” he sings on “Je$u$ Cri$i$,” from his 10th LP, over spiky, electro-hard-rock riffs that occasionally recall his glammy Mechanical Animals period. That old black magic often sounds forced, but he makes up for it with a few more melancholy tracks, the best of which, “Saturnalia,” is an eight-minute ode to orgiastic revelry...

5 Things Only AIM Kids Will Remember
The Internets

Today it was announced that AOL Instant Messenger would be shutting down for good this December. Sad face. AIM was the first social media interface we millennials remember. It was a breeding ground of passive aggressiveness, drama, and immaturity. An AIM convo had more twists in it than an episode of One Tree Hill. Let’s take a trip down memory lane to recall the best (and worst) things about AIM.

Review: Kelela’s Forward-Thinking R&B Is Restlessly Innovative
News

Since her 2013 mixtape Cut 4 Me, Kelela has been one of R&B’s most buzzed-about up-and-comers, an enigmatic presence who melds her strong yet acrobatic voice and bottomless fascination with music’s potential into hooky, forthright post-millennial soul. Kelela has, in the last year, dueted with Solange on A Seat at the Table‘s crystalline “Scales” and added her voice to Gorillaz’ cacophony of Humanz. Her debut full-length fuses together jagged textures, vaporous synths and her versatile voice into...
