Donald Trump Asks World Leaders To Call Him On His Cell Phone. That Can Only Mean 1 Thing.
Huffington Post - 9 months
President Donald Trump is being gleefully mocked over his latest reported request to world leaders. On Tuesday, The Associated Press reported that Trump was encouraging his global counterparts to call him directly on his cell phone if they wanted to talk to him. Twitter users were initially keen to point out the problems it could pose: He doesn't want transcripts or records of his conversations. He wants to hide his words even from his own administration. https://t.co/H5n869L7mY — Rachel Joy Larris (@RachelLarris) May 31, 2017 In translation: Trump has been giving his insecure cell phone # to every hostile intelligence service there is. https://t.co/S3enIVrz03 — Dan Murphy (@bungdan) May 31, 2017 Obvious absurdity aside, the more disturbing bit is that this is also an obvious attempt circumvent proper govt transparency. https://t.co/ce4WySOjKz — Jasmin Mujanović (@JasminMuj) May 31, 2017 Many, however, used the opportun...

What's Really Going On Inside Your Favorite Songs?
Huffington Post - 11 months
What makes up a song? There are the basic elements: notes, a rhythm, melody, perhaps vocals or instrumentation of some kind. Yet the heart of a song, the inscrutable way it reaches out to listeners, unites strangers, marks a personal or collective era, is a bit harder to get at.  With his podcast “Song Exploder,” musician Hrishikesh Hirway — who also has a podcast devoted to “The West Wing” — helps to fill out the answer. Each episode since the show’s inception in 2014 takes one track from a musician or group’s catalog and allows an artist to break down the song in his or her own words. Who’s been on it? Some bigger names include Solange, Carly Rae Jepsen, U2, Metallica, DJ Shadow, Wilco and Iggy Pop, and the show’s indie-but-well-known roster could rival a Brooklyn resident’s most-played on Spotify: Grimes, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, Phantogram and tUnE-yArDs. “I wanted the show to demonstrate this idea that there’s so much going on within any song,” Hirway told ...

Why Lorde's 'Green Light' Marks Poptimism's Downfall
Huffington Post - 12 months
Sitting down with Noisey in 2016, Neil Tennant of legendary British pop duo the Pet Shop Boys was asked his opinion on the current pop landscape. “There’s a problem in pop music…which is subject matter. And there’s only currently one subject matter – and that is the singer. Or possibly, their emotional life.” After two years with little on the market besides a second collaboration with dance duo Disclosure, Lorde returned to the pop market this week with the Jack Antonoff collaboration “Green Light.” Previewing the single on Twitter, Lorde excitedly professed it was “the first chapter of the last two wild, florescent years” of her life. I’ve already gotten into several Facebook arguments for saying “Green Light” is not a good song. And it’s not – from its dull opening piano chords and clunky songwriting (you will never be able to convince me “we order different drinks at the same bars” and “sometimes I wake up in a different bedroom” are noteworthy songwriting) it feels like J...

Tired of Netflix? Here Are 10 Short Films To Watch This Fall Instead
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The paradox of Netflix: scrolling through the selection of movies and series can feel both endless and very limited.  Should you watch another episode of “Tiny House Hunters” to mock its idealistic shoppers, or should you plug your nose and wade through less, er, legal streaming sites, hoping the latest episode of “Outlander” has subtitles in a language you can read?  Of course, these aren’t your only options. There’s a whole world of filmmaking out there that may be a little harder to access, but it’s a world that is experimental, entertaining and wonderfully diverse. We previously reported on the petri dish of short-film production, where projects are free to grow organically and directors don’t need to ask permission before casting actors of color, older actors, and others relegated to the fringes of Hollywood. For those who protest lily-white Oscars or the deplorable absence of women directors, writers and producers, watching short films provides an alternative. How, th...
