    The Emmys Found One Last Way To Fuck Over "The Wire"

    So while some 50 departed folks ranging from Brittany Murphy to Soupy Sales to Lena Horne had their faces grace the screen during last Sunday's Emmy telecast, a person who made a huge impact on the world of television bizarrely didn't make the cut. Writer and producer David Mills, who died of a brain aneurysm this March at age 48, was not included in the montage. You might ask who Mills is, but if you've seen "The Corner" or "Homicide" or "ER" or "Treme" or "NYPD Blue," you know his work. He also wrote and produced many episodes of inarguably the greatest television series of all time, "The Wire," which was passed over by Emmy time and time ...

    5 "Black Swan" Reviews To Excitedly Wake Up To

    It's a been a while since I woke up with the kind of anticipation that comes with knowing that inside your laptop lies a bunch of reviews for one of your most anticipated films of the year... But this morning that was most definitely the case in Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan," which debuted in Venice seven or so hours ago. See reaction for yourself below, but it certainly seems like I should be counting the minutes until I can see this film in Toronto next week (and I'll also admit I may have quickly skimmed each review for any recognition of Winona Ryder's performance first and foremost, to which "tiny role but excellent work" seemed to be ...

    The Arcade Fire Create Interactive Music Video Involving YOUR Hometown

    With the help of Google Web developers, The Arcade Fire have created an interactive video for track "We Used To Wait" that incorporates visual data of your hometown using Google Maps, Street View, and the 3D graphics engine within HTML5. Playing on the titular theme of their album "The Suburbs," the band has given the internet a wave of intense nostalgia. I couldn't even use my childhood address (street view hasn't come to Trenton, Ontario), but just using the first apartment I ever lived in was enough to get me all misty eyed. It sounds like I'm exaggerating, but its honestly one of the more emotionally stimulating uses of technology I've e...

    Venice Day One: Black Swan Early Reviews, Machete

    As a Venice newbie, I got off the speed train from Rome, exited the station to a canal and grabbed a 40-minute ferry to the island the Lido. It's an adjustment. Basically a subway is a ferry here, a taxi is a motor boat or gondola, and houses have water in their basements with a garage for their boa...
