The Improbable True Story of How 'Clerks' Was Made

In 1992, Kevin Smith wasn't sure what his path in life was. He had dreamt of writing for Saturday Night Live, skipping Shakespeare and psychology classes at The New School to sit around at 30 Rock, hoping that Lorne Michaels would notice him. That dream didn't pan out, and Smith ended up dropping out of college after his first semester. But a job as a clerk at a conjoined video store and Quick Stop in Leonardo, New Jersey opened more doors than he'd ever imagined. It became the setting for Smith

Kevin Smith's 'Jay and Silent Bob Reboot' Pays Tribute to His Entire Career

Kevin Smith almost died in February 2018, when he had a massive heart attack and was told he had an 80 percent chance of not making it. The filmmaker was at peace with the notion of passing on, seeing it as a high school graduation of sorts, moving on to the next chapter after accomplishing everything he's set out to do. But he had one regret: If he died, the last movie he'd made would be 2016’s Yoga Hosers.

Vivian Girls walked so the next generation of indie rockers could run

I first fell in love with Vivian Girls at the height of my teenage angst. I was 15 years old and looking to connect with music at a deeper level. While white male bands dominated indie rock, Vivian Girls offered something different. They were three women, who weren’t afraid to be loud, or vulnerable, and felt far more accessible than any other women in rock I admired at the time. It was appealing to see a band that didn't try to manufacture a persona; they were being unabashedly themselves.

Big Little Lies Season 2 Accurately Captures What it Feels Like When Your Abuser Dies

At the beginning of the second season of Big Little Lies, Jane (Shailene Woodley) asks Celeste (Nicole Kidman) if she's glad Perry (Alexander Skarsgard) is dead. Celeste pauses, and then says "It's complicated." When the new season of Big Little Lies premiered, I saw so many people tweet that they wished they were in Celeste's position of their abuser being dead. I used to wish the same thing all the time.

The Terrifying True Story of How 'The Blair Witch Project' Was Made

In 1997, Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick sent out three unknown actors to improvise a horror flick in the woods and film it on their own. The concept was practically unheard of, and it wouldn't be easy to pull off. But two years later, Sanchez and Myrick had a bonafide hit on their hands with The Blair Witch Project, which inspired a new horror subgenre and became one of the most iconic horror flicks of all time.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Reveals Thoughts on Felicity Jones-Starring Biopic 'On the Basis of Sex'

The Supreme Court justice was interviewed at and hosted the star-studded New York premiere of the film (Hillary Clinton and Gloria Steinem were among the guests). It’s no easy task to tell Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s story. The Supreme Court justice has become an icon in recent years, earning the moniker "Notorious R.B.G." But her nephew Daniel Stiepleman wanted to tell the story of her rise, before she became a bona fide celebrity.

How Downtown Boys Became One of the Most Vital Voices in Punk Today

Six years ago, some of Victoria Ruiz’s friends and her mother flew from San Jose, California to Providence, Rhode Island to watch her perform as frontwoman of the punk band Downtown Boys for the first time. Ruiz was overwhelmed. She had performed in musical theatre before as a child, but this was different. During the first song, Ruiz—who is asthmatic—had trouble breathing; she didn’t know how to manage her energy or vocal chords.

'We've Come a Long Way': Alvvays Discuss Dreamy But Grounded New Album 'Antisocialites'

'Antisocialites' comes out on Friday (Sept. 8). Back in 2014, Alvvays released their self-titled debut album, featuring “Archie, Marry Me.” That song went on to become one of the most memorable indie-pop songs of that summer, going to No. 1 on the American College Radio chart and even being covered by Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard. That first album encapsulates the woes of coming to terms with adulthood. Beyond “Archie, Marry Me”, each song represents an overwhelming feeling of loneliness,

an interview with Hurray for the Riff Raff on activism, her Puerto Rican heritage, and new LP

Hurray for the Riff Raff's 'The Navigator' focuses focuses on a narrative driven by a character who she refers to as “The Navigator” named Navita Milagros Negrón. Navita fuels the album’s story, giving it a cinematic — or even Broadway musical — feel that could easily make the whole LP a soundtrack to this character’s life. Each song tells a story about growing up in a big city, finding a place within the world, and finding empowerment in her identity as a Latina. Alynda uses Navita as someone to tell her own story, evoking that childlike wonder and teenage rebellion she felt growing up, while also voicing her current resilience.
