This year, we saw some pretty crappy “fan” behavior, from Rick and Morty fans storming McDonald’s for dipping sauce to Star Wars fans claiming The Last Jedi ruined their childhoods. Was it always like this, or were fans of 2017 just way, way too passionate about pop culture?
With ‘The Disaster Artist’, James Franco seeks to give us a little glimpse into the completely insane world of Tommy Wiseau—and it is fascinating!
Like with Michael Jackson and David Bowie, I couldn’t even conceive of a world where the was no Prince. He’s engrained in the cultural backbone of generations, and people like that never truly die. So today, I’m sitting at my computer listening to Purple Rain over and over again and remembering the legendary entertainer who will always be a part of our collective hearts.
As far as I’m concerned, Leonardo DiCaprio should already have several Oscars on his shelf. ‘The Revenant’ could very well be the film that finally scores him some Oscar gold, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s his best film. Brutal and beautiful, this film has racked up lots of nominations from professional and critics groups already—and it deserves the accolades, but will this be the one that finally secures a DiCaprio win on Oscar night?
I wish a documentary like Amy was shocking because we didn’t see talented people self-destruct on the regular, but sadly, Amy Winehouse’s story is all too commonplace. Unlike your average Behind the Music rock doc, Amy doesn’t flower things up for a made-for-TV package. Instead, it shows us the stark reality of such a talented person’s demise, and leaves us reflecting on why so many of our most talented entertainers meet a similar fate.
The first CD I ever bought was Snoop Dogg’s “Doggystyle”, which was quickly followed by Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic”, and thus began my love of 1990s gangsta rap.

Whether it’s the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner pre-parties, San Diego Comic Con or just a random encounter on the street, I’ve had the good fortune of snapping pictures with some big stars. Sometimes...
Trashwire is in the hizzouse (yes, I realize how ridiculous and dated that sounds) for San Diego Comic Con 2013. Pop culture mecca is bustling again with celebs, superheroes, a fair share of obscure...
Gerard Way is far beyond a simplistic lyricist, he is a storyteller. The first issue of The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys carries his powerful message of never giving up in a rambunctious thrill ride with Becky Cloonan’s art work as a brilliant compromise of their colorful, futuristic world, while also feeling like a familiar canvas of early 90’s titles.
