Twenty Years of Asteroid Blues

Cowboy Bebop turns twenty years old this year. Since its premiere in 1998, its audacity of style, its inventiveness combined with an evident work ethic have remained unique. There are plenty of other great anime series but none have so successfully divested themselves of any established genre, something its creative team did quite intentionally as the original release featured the tagline, “a...

Showing True Colours

Let him that is no coward nor no flatterer
But dare maintain the party of the truth
Pluck a red rose from off this thorn with me

So speaks one of the parties in the origin story William Shakespeare imagined for the War of the Roses in his Henry VI: Part I. It’s not considered one of Shakespeare’s best plays—in fact, not considered altogether a Shakespeare play but widely believed to be a product...

The Star Chamber (1983)

Directed by Peter Hyams. Michael Douglas, Yaphet Kotto, Hal Holbrook, Sharon Gless. Extra-legal proceedings to get unwanted criminals off the street not surprisingly doesn’t work so well when put into practice. I think I saw this on TV way back when, and was trying to find it while watching the Peter Hyams movies of that period: Capricorn One, Outland, Running Scared, The Presidio,...

The Elusively Common Art

How much volition is involved in the ways people become important to one another? Presumably it varies on a case by case basis, which is one of the things that makes Seijun Seisuki’s 1991 film Yumeji a bit dizzying. A post-modernist nightmare version of a biography of painter and poet Yumeji Takehisa, Suzuki portrays the artist lost in a reality where the relationships between people...

Forbidden Word of the Daleks

It seems at the beginning of the 2013 Doctor Who audio play Daleks Among Us that it’s going to be a nice, paranoid tale about an Orwellian dystopia. The aftermath of the humans winning against the Daleks on Earth eerily has the governing humans enforcing a constant rewriting of history and now Daleks can’t even be mentioned. This is justified by the fact that humans turned on each other after...

Sure the bacon and brisket burger sounds good, but wouldn’t it be extra enticing if you could see the char marks and the fluffy bun before ordering? Snapchat thinks so. The social media app is working with tech startup Kabaq, Digital Trends reports, to create “augmented-reality menus,” starting with burger chain Bareburger.

Kabaq’s website offers a few demos of the technology, which can also...

The best camera is the one you have with you, but with the right bag , that camera can be much better than the one on the back of your smartphone. Since so many people are heading out on vacations over the next few months, we figured it was a good time to ask what we should all use to carry our precious optics.


Obviously, bags come in all shapes and sizes, and we don’t want to limit...
