Last week, actor and LSD-enthusiast Shia LaBeouf and synth-pop duo Future Unlimited debuted the gloomy video for "Haunted Love" directed by none other than everyone's favorite Michael Bay leading man. LaBeouf has had many an odd foray into music video. From a thirty-minute musical of interpretive da ... More >>
They're having a wild old time backstage at one of the dramas on the Great White Way (but I don't envy the director).
Let me explain.
Shia LaBeouf was recently fired from the Broadway production of the play Orphans because of "creative differences" and was replaced by Ben Foster.
Supposedly Shia ... More >>
Yesterday, it was announced that Shia LeBeouf was leaving the production of Orphans because of the fabled "creative differences" reason.
In other words, "Please leave. It ain't working. You got creative differences with that? Sorry!"

At a BoConcept dinner at Chateau Chang last night, I met Dany Wolf, who executive produced Lawless, the period drama about a bootlegging gang.
On command, Wolf graciously gave me some insight into the all-star shooting.

As a major festival like Cannes wears on, my notebook accumulates more
scrawl than I can translate into full blog posts. So, behold! The first
of likely several notebook dumps, with thoughts on John Hillcoat's
bootleggers-with-hearts-of-gold vs. sexually-ambiguous-evil-fed and
weak-ass local law ... More >>

This week, Metalface Records reissues MF Doom's Operation Doomsday (in a lunchbox, for some reason) and that seems like a good excuse to look back on the label that first released the project--Fondle 'Em. While Rawkus, through its feats of star-making and self-mythologizing, now stands as the ... More >>
The poster primary is an increasingly key metric in political races, as witness Obama's iconic "Hope" banner in 2008. In the New York gubernatorial race, so far the clear poster edge goes to Carl Paladino's madcap crew whose "we'll-do-and-say-anything" approach to politics lends itself well t ... More >>
Everyone knew it was coming. It was just a matter of time before film criticism's reigning anti- anti- anti- king, Mr. Counterintuitive himself, chimed in.

For Joe McGinniss, who's working on his Sarah Palin's Year of Living Dangerously due in the fall of 2011, proximity seemed key, too, so he moved in next door the fo ... More >>
Yesterday, the New York Times set up a nice little mystery.

This is the dead-assed week when the only thing to write about is how the city is emptier than my mind during a Shia LaBeouf movie. So it's to everyone's benefit that I skip class for a few days, refresh my head and my pores, and come back next week fiercer than Whitney Houston on a day with ... More >>
