Flavorwire Premiere: A Dead Forest Index’s “In All That Drifts From Summit Down”

There’s not much to In All That Drifts From Summit Down, the debut LP from A Dead Forest Index—each of the album’s 13 tracks are comprised of guitar, vocals, and simple percussion. Yet its minimalist construction belies the textured atmospherics it creates, slowly built up, track by track, lending it a natural gravitas. Flavorwire has an exclusive early […]

There’s a Whole Bunch of Mutants in the New Trailer for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

While Marvel’s Avengers universe continues to spiral out into close to a dozen pictures, and DC’s Justice League universe begins its transformation into another tentpole camp worth billions and billions of dollars, 20th Century Fox’s X-Men films continue to be rather self-contained, and pretty damn consistent.

Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ Now Available on iTunes

Saturday night, Beyoncé gave us all what we need as the weather gets warmer and the sun shines brighter: Lemonade, first a “visual album” aired on HBO, and then a musical album available exclusively on Tidal, until now.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Premiere Recap: “The Red Woman”

Jon Snow is still dead. There were quite a few unsettled storylines at the end of Season 5, but whether or not Jon Snow had perished was certainly the most pressing. He’s still dead, but all that does is beg another question: Can Melisandre bring him back to life? There’s a precedent: Thoros of Myr, […]

10 Quotes Where David Hockney Threw Art-World Shade

The library is open, and English painter David Hockey has been reading the art-world since he became an integral figure during the pop-art movement during the 1960s.

The Oldest Libraries Around the World

It’s no secret around here that we’re a little bit obsessed with libraries — their collections, stunning designs, and sometimes playful interiors.

Flavorwire’s Official ‘Game of Thrones’ Season Six Drinking Game

Gird your loins, because tonight Game of Thrones returns to HBO for season six. There will be dragons. There will be sex. There will be Jon Snow — or maybe that’s just wishful thinking. After all the teasing by George R. R. Martin and the gang, we could all use a few drinks for tonight’s […]

‘Outlander’ Season 2 Episode 3 Recap: “Useful Occupations and Deceptions”

This week’s Outlander wasn’t the most exciting episode we’ve seen, but it took care of important business and set the stage for some inevitably explosive drama. Relations between Claire and Jamie are strained; he’s going back and forth between Paris and Versailles, and spending more time than he’d like with “that loon of a prince,” […]

‘O.J.: Made In America’ is a Meticulous, Powerful Documentary Companion to ‘The People vs. O.J. Simpson’

Part of what made FX’s American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson so thrilling, of why so many people seemed so taken by it, was that by all rights it should’ve been terrible. Aside from the usual reservations about the works of Ryan Murphy, a dramatization of the O.J. Simpson trial sounded like something […]

Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ is a Whole New Album, and It’s Exclusively On Tidal Because Of Course It Is

Evocative Photos of ’90s Teenagers in Their Bedrooms

In 1995, artist Adrienne Salinger wanted to depict the authentic lives of young people in ‘90s America — a contrast to the perfect Beverly Hills 90210 types portrayed in the media. She photographed teens in the most intimate space of all: their bedrooms. “I started it on the West Coast, when I lived there, just out […]

Here’s one of those #hottakes the Internet likes so much: Tom Hanks is incredibly charismatic and likable. Or at least that’s the impression left by his hour-long chat with John Oliver at the Tribeca Film Festival Friday, a talk that caught him at the end of the publicity tour for his new film A Hologram […]

But memory is just the beginning; his candles are hand-poured into bourbon glasses, meaning that good times are also […]
