Total Recall (1990)
Instagram can sometimes be a magical place. Case in point, I just stumbled upon this pin by Prize Pins inspired by one of the most um, titillating characters in Total Recall. This pin is perfect for its line quality, its locally made in NY and the simple fact that it is a pin with three boobies on it. Yes, I said boobies. #freethenipple Get yours here!
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD: 2015
In a time of many reboots the best thing to do is to keep your expectations very low and bulk up on snacks to get you through what could be a long ninety minutes. The Mad Max: Fury Road trailer is upon us and luckily George Miller has returned to direct this fourth installment of the Mad Max series, the first release since 1985s Thunderdome chapter. I think its time we got another hero. Am I right people?! Hope has arrived in the form of Tom Hardy and a G.I. Jane shorn Charlize Theron. Nicholas Hoult is also here for the dystopian Burning Man party playing a geisha powdered descendent of Rick Genest, Zombie Boy. The trailer has everything that a trailer for this kind of movie should: mimed screaming, explosives, lots of dusty people, heavily accessorized gangs, a little more dust and colored smoke bombs, and thumping music by Junkie XL. They also peppered in a few models and rock royalty: I see you through the dirt Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Abby Lee, Zoë Kravitz and Riley Keough! My only question? Will we be graced by an appearance from an Aunty Entity hologram? I will even settle for a cyborg version as long as it has those legs.
I’ve written about this movie before, but these photos just made me think its worth revisiting.

Let the Fire Burn (2013)
May 13th, 1985. I was only two years old when the MOVE bombing happened. Too young to remember and living roughly six miles away in South Philadelphia. My mother said the emotional shockwaves vibrated throughout the city, and added to racial turmoil that has always been brewing in Philadelphia. Ironically it also happened on the dime of the city’s first Black mayor, Wilson Goode. Eleven people died (including five children) and hearing fragmented stories about the incident growing up I always assumed it was a testament to the The City of Brotherly Love’s complicated issues with race. Let the Fire Burn gives a more robust story, filling in many gaps and detailing the pressure cooker of interactions that lead up to the bombing as well as what happened next.
