By Maya Mabern Last week, I went down the rabbit hole of recommended videos on YouTube and spent about two hours feeling nostalgic for an era I never experienced: the heyday of “Soul Train.” The show, which ran from 1971 to 2006, brought Black culture to mainstream America and changed the landscape of music and […]

By Thalia Lauzon I’ve gotten into several debates on the “greatness” of Disney movies. My most recent one last week was, as usual, a heated discussion in which my friend preached the amazingness of the movies while I tore into them like a hungry lion with meat.   Sure, they’re entertaining in the mindlessly stupid kind […]

By Emma Simonoff I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love “Succession.” In honor of its near-sweep of the dramatic Emmy categories last week, I’m dedicating this blog to the long and confounding career of the only Roy child not to receive a nomination, Alan Ruck. You probably know Young Ruck from […]

By Maya Mabern When Hulu’s “High Fidelity” premiered, I actually squealed out loud.   As a fan of the 2000 film starring John Cusack, I was ecstatic for Zoe Kravitz to retell the story of the pretentious music nerd who realizes she’s the common denominator in all of her failed relationships.   Similar to the original film, […]
