Over the weekend New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham died. As someone whose father bought the Sunday New York Times every weekend, Cunningham was a part of my life before I knew who he was. When I moved to the East Village in 2000 I continued my father’s habit of buying the Times every Sunday. […]
Gary Hustwit, the creator of the films Urbanized and Helvetica, is back with a new Kickstarter project, RAMS. RAMS, “…is the world’s first feature documentary on legendary designer Dieter Rams.” Sign me up.
That’s the smell of money being printed. Bryan says San Andreas was a gloriously stupid movie. Now that I think about it, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a Dwayne Johnson through from start to finish.

Looks like there’s a Beastie Boys easter egg in Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Beastie Boys as we knew them ceased to exist in 2012 after Adam Yauch’s death from cancer, but their memory’s being kept alive in an unexpected, intergalactic fashion. Jedi Insider obtained a new Hasbro Black Series figurine of an alien […]
For the seventh year in a row, my friend, editor, and DE contributor Bryan is doing his October Horrorshow, publishing one horror movie review each day, for the entire month. Here’s the full archive. You officially have no excuse for scary movie options. Update: I should give a few recommendations. For a newer movie, I […]
Website vintage everyday reposted NME’s list of 14 Old School Sacred Movies That Should Never be Rebooted. Included in the list are some of my favorite movies: Goodfellas, The Godfather and Annie Hall. Saying you can never remake these is bullshit.
