Heavy nettle

A new genre of pop music is about to emerge called "heavy nettle." Despite its name, the music will tend to be folk-based and very twee, and it will concern itself with the natural world. Songs will typically detail, in almost storybook fashion, the day-to-day activities of, say, a fox, or list various strange sea creatures, or discuss the strange intelligence of corvids.

Think on Your Sins, America

Six year ago, we vibrating-forked over almost $150 million to watch inexplicably bankable star Kevin James flail around a PG-rated comedy about an overweight mall security guard who—get this—took his job as seriously as an actual police officer.

Writer/director David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows is an alarmingly well-reviewed throwback horror movie that follows Jay Height (Maika Monroe), whose vagina gets cursed by Satan after she does it with her boyfriend.
