Always great to read journalistically creative stuff about Brody Dalle. This interview was really eye opening for me. If Brody Dalle can make babies and be a responsible person after, I have to be able to come close, right? Great work Nicole Powers!

Interview With Jimmi Simpson: House of Cards

One of the most intriguing characters in the new series of House of Cards, is that of hacker Gavin Orsay played by Jimmi Simpson. The political drama, which is written and produced by Beau Willimon and stars Kevin Spacey as the Machiavellian politician Francis Underwood, is highly addictive and a breakout hit on Netflix.

Interview With Adan Jodorowsky: Why Adanowsky Is Killing Ada

10

Adan Jodorowsky's life story reads like a plot from one of his father's surrealist masterpieces. The son of Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky and Mexican actress Valerie Trumblay, Adan was born in France and raised in an exceedingly Bohemian household, where standing on the table and peeing in the soup was considered a legitimate form of expression rather than an act worthy of being...

Peace, Love, and Pepper Spray

Having spent quality time at Occupations in Los Angeles, New York, London and Chicago, about a year ago I received a phone call from my friend – Emmy Award winning former CNN journalist Amber Lyon – asking for help with a book on contemporary protest she was working on.

“Come over for a day and write a few captions,” she said. I didn’t see the light

An Open Letter To My Male Friends

11

To The Wonderful Guys That I Consider To Be My Friends,

I appreciate that from time to time you may need to disappear from my life. I understand that sometimes having female friends can put a strain on romantic relationships – especially when they are vulnerable and/or new.

I get that even the most amazing women can feel jealous and insecure at times – and never...

Like National Public Radio, Back to the Future 2, Daniel Day Lewis, Sunsets, and Farrah Fawcett Hair, Capital Cities' debut album In A Tidal Wave of Mystery, which was released in June of this year, is good shit. The funky and fun band was formed after founding members Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian were united via a Craigslist ad back in 2008. The duo had

Diablo Cody: Paradise

1

Paradise is Diablo Cody's fourth full-length feature film, but her first as both a writer and director, and is perhaps her most gloriously entertaining endeavor to date. The film tells the story of Lamb Mannerheim (played by Julianne Hough), a young girl from a highly religious small town in Montana who has a crisis of faith after she loses her fiancé and is badly

Clive Barker: Hellraiser and Artful Weaver of Worlds

12

It's impossible to pin down Clive Barker, the man who created the iconic Pinhead character. The multi-faceted and irrepressible filmmaker, video game designer, artist, and author travels through different mediums and genres with the kind of ease that a shapeshifter might exchange forms. Take, for example, his current diverse slate of creative output. He's recently released anniversary editions of two of his most
