When a very dead suicide victim (Jeremy Childs, 'Preacher', 'Nashville') disappears from the morgue, it sets in motion a chain of events that has the power to immolate everything, and everyone, it touches. Troubled psychiatrist Daniel Forrester (Shane Carruth, 'Primer', 'Upstream Color') is drawn to help a mysterious patient who is brought to the emergency psych ward in a catatonic state with no memory of how he reached the hospital. As if to exorcise his own demons, the doctor feverishly tries to break through to his mysterious patient. But as a spate of mysterious deaths shake the ward to its core, Forrester comes to suspect that there is more to his new ward than meets the eye. As he comes to realise what he's unleashed, a desperate race against the forces of evil threatens to swallow him whole. 'The Dead Center' is a smart supernatural thriller that explores the demons that live inside all of us from writer-director Billy Senese, recently hailed as a "masterful new voice in terror".

Pedro Lourenço Puts Eco-Concerns at Center of Latest Collection

ZILVER LINING: Recycled nylon, organic cotton and vegan leather made from apples are at the core of Pedro Lourenço’s new collection for Zilver, a London-based collection that is in its third season.
“In order to move the brand forward, it is important to remember the end goal, which is to be part of a collective revolution that changes the way we produce and consume products, without destroying the planet. For us, it means to continue investing in innovative materials and new methods of production,” he added.
The spring collection is filled with certified organic cotton, while a vegan leather jacket is made from apples. Shirts are done in recycled denim and nylon, while all the specific information about the materials used in the collection will be on the garment tags.
He also put an accent on multitasking pieces: Black and white blazers and trench coats can be transformed into gilets or jackets with zips.
Last year he spoke to WWD about the importance of creating “conscious pieces” and getting as close as he can to 100 percent sustainability, although “it’s still not possible to be 100 percent sustainable,” he said.
His spring 2020 collection was rooted in astrology and specifically the Gemini zodiac.

Nipsey Hussle’s Memorial Service Will Be Held At Staples Center

Grammy Awards 2019 Arrivals

Source: Adriana M. Barraza/WENN.com / WENN

As fans are still scrambling to make sense of the tragic loss of Nipsey Hussle, a memorial service has been announced for the beloved West Coast rapper and businessman. In Los Angeles next week, the Staples Center will host the going home service for Hussle, a fitting honor for an artist of his caliber.

TMZ reports:

Sources with direct knowledge tell us, the service will take place Thursday morning at the 21,000 seat venue.  We’re told tickets will be sold for the event through a website.  Only ticket holders will gain admission.

Our sources say there was a meeting Wednesday with Nipsey’s family and honchos from Staples.  LAPD officials were also present in the meeting to help plan logistics and security for the event.

It’s a massive undertaking to plan such a major event in less than a week. Staging equipment must be rented, and the rental companies have already been contacted. We’ve learned ushers who work Staples have already been asked to reserve the day.

May Nipsey Hussle rest peacefully in paradise.

News in Brief: Jeb Bush Inching Podium Closer To Center Of Stage During Commercial Breaks

BOULDER, CO—Speculating that he might be nudging it just a tiny bit with his foot or something, Americans viewing Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate said that candidate Jeb Bush appeared to be inching his podium closer to the center of the stage during the commercial breaks. “I definitely don’t think he was standing that close to the middle before,” said Phoenix resident Jim Rawson, adding that over the course of four commercial breaks, it seemed as if Bush had closed the gap between himself and the center-stage candidates by at least a foot. “I mean, I’m not imagining this, am I?” At press time, Bush was hastily dragging his podium to its original spot after audibly scraping it against that of fellow candidate Ben Carson.

Of Course, Ciara Is The Center Of The Russell Wilson Contract Extension Story

Can the men of Ciara’s life ever get a moment for themselves? First Cici took some heat for the release of Future’s No. 1 album, Dirty Sprite 2 and now she is being slandered following news of a $ 87 million Russell Wilson contract extenstion with the Seattle Seahawks.

Did we mention $ 60 million is guaranteed?

Via Seahawks.com

Wilson’s new deal is just the latest, and given the position he plays, arguably the most important, contract extension handed out by the Seahawks in recent years. When Pete Carroll and John Schneider took over in 2010, they went about building through the draft what would eventually become a championship team. And after loading a roster with talented young players, the next phase became identifying and keeping as much of the core intact as the league’s salary cap would allow.

Wilson, who is now locked up through 2019, has already accomplished an extraordinary amount in his first three seasons in Seattle. Not only did he become the first quarterback to start two Super Bowls in his first three seasons, he is also the winningest quarterback through three seasons with 36 regular-season victories and 42 including the postseason.

Naturally he was happy.

And naturally she was happy for him.

But the cynics couldn’t keep from shining over the news and what we got is plenty of comical memes and what not. Even from Wilson’s peers.

BREAKING: Shooting Event At Chattanooga Reserve Center Has Ended

As details from the Chattanooga reserve center shooting in Tennessee continue to develop, authorities say the event has come to a violent end. The shooting took place at a Navy Reserve center and a military recruiting center in two separate instances, and the investigation to discover why the shooter opened fired is underway.

Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke is set to address residents of the city regarding what is known about the unnamed Chattanooga shooter according to CNN, NBC News, and ABC News. The shooting was said to have taken place just before 11:00 a.m. local time, although much of this is still speculative.

Around 1:15 p.m. local time, the gunman was taken down, thus putting an end to the harrowing situation although there were some injuries. Reports say that at least two marines and one police officer are among the shooting victims after the gunman fired an unofficial 25-30 rounds at the two facilities.

More from ABC News:

At least three people — two Marines and one police officer — were injured in a shooting today in Chattanooga, Tennessee, according to law enforcement officials.

The shooter has not been identified but is believed to be dead after being neutralized and it is no longer an active shooter situation, sources told ABC News.

There were two scenes of the shooting — one at a Naval Operation Support Center and an Armed Forces Recruiting Center that houses an Army and Marine recruiting office — though all of the injuries are believed to have occurred at the Naval Operation Support Center, according to federal officials.

There are rumors that some Marines working at the Navy reserve center may have been killed, but we caution that these are largely unconfirmed reports.

We will update this post with new information as soon as we can.

Interview: The Vaselines at the Cedar Cultural Center

Recently, I sat down to interview The Vaselines, a Scottish indie band of immense cult appeal.

The story of The Vaselines differs greatly from the classic example of a band’s steady rise to fame. Originally formed in 1986, the band, initially only comprised of Scotland natives Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee, could at the time, be thought of more as a fun experiment conducted by two young musicians than a band tenaciously seeking fame. The band’s superbly crafted songs embodied a carefree spirit, and appealed to listeners of pop rock as well as punk rock.

One such fan of theirs was Kurt Cobain, the late front man for Nirvana. By the time The Vaselines’ first album had been released in 1989, they had broken up. However, with the rise of Nirvana’s career, it was Cobain who implored them to regroup, asking them if they would support Nirvana during their stay in Scotland on their 1991 European tour.

The supplemental recognition brought on by Nirvana came and went, though. McKee and Kelly soon went back to their lives, as well as other musical projects.

Although they remained friendly, the band endured an extensive break. Then, in 2008, they reunited and decided to continue touring on and off, releasing two albums since their reunification: 2010’s Sex with an X and 2014’s V for Vaselines.

Their repertoire can be thought of as fun and reckless, lacquered in youthful ambitions and served with brash, boisterous bursts of instrumentation.

This piece is the first in a two-part series, and it is a pattern that I intend to emulate in my future blog posts. For every act that I blog about, I will post a transcription of our interview first, followed by a show review. Such a review will be posted shortly after this blog.

On Thurs., Jan. 22, I had the chance to sit down with the original odd couple of indie rock. Here is what transpired:

——

How’s the tour been?

EK: Great.

FM: Yeah, pretty good.

EK: It’s been fun. We’re really enjoying it. Sometimes you get daunted when you see two weeks of shows ahead of you and the shadow is kind of intense, but We’ve got one day off, 14 days. So you get into that and you think: ‘What am I getting into?’ but then you get on tour, and —

FM: You get into the rhythm of it and you don’t have to think about anything else for two weeks. You don’t even know what’s going on in the world after a while.

I was wondering: which songs of yours are your favorites to play live?

EK: I like the new ones because they’re fresher. The older ones, we’ve only been playing them for the last six years. Frances last night zoned out during one of the old songs and started singing when we shouldn’t be singing. [Frances laughs] Sometimes you can do that, but basically it was a laid-back song.

FM: My mind wandered a little bit.

EK: So the new ones keep you focused, because you’re still getting them rather than just kind of concentrating on lyrics.

Seeing as now that you’re writing new songs as The Vaselines, how have your songwriting routines changed?

EK: A bit.

FM: We’re more structured about it. When we wrote Dum Dum, some of those songs just materialized from the time we spent together as a couple.

EK: Yeah, it’s more formal. Frances comes to the house, we send each other things beforehand, and we get time to sit down and write lyrics.

FM: We were much more prepared for both Sex With An X and the new album. We knew what we wanted, and we had also our solo projects, so we were much more experienced in the studio.

EK: Twenty years ago, we didn’t really know what we were doing. It was a brand new experience for us as we were learning how to write songs. It was totally intuitive and what came out was just an outpouring.

How often do you two write songs?

EK: We only write when we know we’re going to make a record.

FM: Well, you write…

EK: I’ve got ideas inside but I don’t finish things often. For The Vaselines, when I’m writing I just play guitar every couple of days and I’ll put things aside and record them. We put things away, and when we decided to this record, it was like: ‘What have we got?’ We only sit down and write Vaselines songs and finish them if we know we’re going to go into the studio and make a record. We don’t have tons of songs.

FM: We bring ideas to the table. I was talking to someone about albums and how musicians keep putting out records, and it does seem like a machine, you know. Bands — they record a record and then they tour the record, then they record another record — it’s just too much.

Yeah, it seems kind of inorganic.

FM: Yeah, and as a musician, as a songwriter, you need time to write the songs. Otherwise, you’re just turning things out. That’s the way we’d like to be.

EK: You need to live some life to get experiences to be inspired by things. You can’t just like get in this hamster wheel.

FM: In the words of Jeffrey Lewis, you get the blowjob and then you write the song after.

The music of The Vaselines is ripe with religious elements. There are referential lyrics in many of your songs, and the music video for Sex With an X has you two in religious garb. What are your attitudes towards religion in general? I get the feeling you’re poking fun at it.

FM: I think we have a healthy disregard for it.

EK: A healthy respect and disregard. I think if people want to believe in something, that’s fine. I think we went through a Catholic upbringing, and we came out the other side of it not really believing in it, so we kind of started to poke fun at ourselves, making fun of the way we were brought up, and not really taking a pass at anyone else.

FM: Well, I think it’s making fun of a culture reference, and it’s something that we know, and so it’s our healthy disregard for it.

EK: It’s kind of shaped in your formative years. You’re getting all of this religion, so it’s kind of something we write about. It’s quite an experience and I experienced a lot of it. I mean, I was an altar boy for about five years, and I was there every week, twice a week, and it’s something that’s still there — you can’t escape it.

FM: Funnily enough, someone asked me at the Chicago show last night: ‘Were you really a nun?’ ‘Was that real?’ (laughs)

EK: We like to dress up like actors. We like to dress up and show off. We thought: ‘What could we dress up as?’ So we dressed up as a priest and a nun.

Speaking of dressing up, I also liked your video for Crazy Lady.

FM: (Laughs)

I didn’t see the ending coming!

EK: Yeah!

FM: I watched it with my kids and my wee girl got really upset. And my son said: ‘How did you get to all of those places?’ Because we filmed it in one day. ‘How did you get to Moscow and Vienna?’

EK: Because it makes no sense at all. It’s really short — it’s like two-and-a-half minutes long and you think: ‘That doesn’t make any sense… I have to watch it again.’

One thing I liked was when it showed you two traveling to different cities, the map has some outdated countries. I saw Austria-Hungary on the map.

FM: Uh-huh!

EK: And also, one of the cities we go to is Venice, but that was a mistake. It was supposed to be Vienna. We had to speak with the director and we had a lot of ideas, and then he went away and wrote the script, and none of us noticed that it said Venice. We thought: ‘Venice, great!’ but it’s supposed to be Vienna.

FM: We had really good fun doing it. We had different directions for those two videos, but I think we like to have our sense of humor come across in our videos because that’s who we are.

So the Nirvana connection is well known, and I feel like you two get that a lot, so I’m just going to ask one simple question about that: I’d like each of you to tell me what your favorite memory of that band is.

EK: I think for me, it was actually getting to sing with him at the Reading Festival. I got onstage with him and I sang a song. I’d never been to a festival before, and I wound up there just by chance. I played a show with Hole and Mudhoney the night before, and I was supposed to come home in the van, but I ended up onstage. It was such an amazing experience. That’s my personal favorite. Beat that (Kelly leans over to McKee and mockingly points at her, laughing)!

FM: Well, I maybe can! They came to Edinburgh and asked if we’d support them. We had split up by then, but we went to Edinburgh and I didn’t know who they were, or anything about them, but as the evening progressed, we all got pretty drunk, and as we were all leaving, I got a nice kiss from Kurt Cobain. Beat that (McKee turns to Kelly and points back at him. Kelly mockingly exclaims aloud as if his story has been beaten.)!

On the cheek?

FM: I couldn’t possibly comment… Of course it was on the cheek! The bum cheek (laughs). Only there on the first night.

So after the tour, what’s next for The Vaselines? Do you have any immediate plans?

FM: Dumfries (laughs).

EK: We fly from LA to Scotland, and then we drive next morning to Dumfries, and then we drive straight back and go to sleep for a week. And then we have nothing after that. There’s talk of maybe Japan, but nothing’s even penciled in. What’s the next step? Is there a next step? Is this it? We can work with that, it’s just that we don’t really know what’s happening until it happens.

That seems to be kind of your style, though. You kind of just do it when you want to do it.

EK: Yeah.

FM: Yes. Yeah — we don’t answer to the man.

EK: Yeah — we are the man.

FM: There’s no man.

EK: When we were touring the last record, there was a year gap where we kind of had to say: ‘What — is this it? Are we not going to take any offers for shows, or are we going to not record anymore, or…’ And then we said: ‘Well, let’s just see what we can do. Let’s see if we can write another record,’ and here we are. We’ll have that meeting at some point and we’ll decide what’s going to happen.

This question’s just for you, Eugene. I read in an interview somewhere that said you were interested in writing a musical-

FM: Well, that’s on the cards. We wanted to do: ‘The Vaselines, the Musical [here, she says: “I like to call it”] The Next Stage [it’s ambiguous whether she’s continuing the title or if the musical is the “next stage” of their careers.].

So you think that’s a possible future?

EK: I mean — it’s just fun to talk about it. The reason I say that is because I wrote three songs for different theater shows and it was just good to see actors singing your song in a big production, and I just thought: ‘Great, I would love to write more and let people do all of the work’ (laughs). You just sit there as a writer with a cigar (imitates smoking a fat cigar) and be like ‘Oh, yes…’ (he says this with a heaving exhale). We’ve had an idea for something for years and had never really got right to doing it, so… but it’s kind of just pie in the sky right now.

FM: With tap dancing and everything.

EK: A Vaselines musical would be great, though. We’d have to get a story together and-

FM: We have a story!

It could be about The Vaselines!

FM: Of course it could! We could just turn all of our songs into musical numbers.

You said before, too, that you want your lyrics to be universal, so they’re up for interpretation.

FM: Exactly

If either of you weren’t musicians, what do you think you’d be doing now?

FM: Well, I’m not always a musician.

EK: Frances has got a life (laughs).

FM: (Laughs) I’ve got a life, thank god.

EK: I don’t know. I’ve often thought about that. If Nirvana hadn’t existed and hadn’t recorded those songs, where would my life be? The things I was doing at the time, I was doing graphic design and I was interested in music, so still probably music.

FM: I think acting. Maybe not in the same theater company, but I think we were both aspiring actors at one point.

EK: Yeah, just in youth theater, and drama workshops, and improv.

FM: I was really bad at remembering lines actually.

EK: Yeah, I noticed that last night, actually during one of the songs.

FM: (laughs)

Well, as far as questions I’ve prepared, that’s pretty much all of them.

FM: You didn’t ask the most biting question of all that I get asked every night: ‘Are you guys on tour?’

[Sarcastically] Yeah are you on tour? Wait — you guys are on tour, right?

FM: (laughs)

EK: It’s funny you say that. I couldn’t believe people actually asked that.

OK, what’s the worst question you’ve ever been asked?

FM: ‘Are you guys ever coming back?’

EK: We’re here, and we probably won’t come back for years, and they ask us: ‘When are you coming back?’ We’re here now!

FM: I know! Just be in the moment!

EK: One night only. We’ll never come back here again.

FM: Except I’m not that rude (laughs).

EK: People shout out for solo songs, and it’s just like — ‘We can’t do it…’ Today is for The Vaselines; we’re doing Vaselines songs.

Shortly after the interview, I attempted to take a photo of the band. I soon realized that the camera, which was lent to me, had not been charged and did not have any charging chord with it in the case.

However, Eugene was kind enough to let me use his iPhone to take their photo. Admittedly, the photo is not optimal — it’s slightly blurry, and it did not adequately capture the lighting of the room we were in.

Despite this blunder of mine, there is a silver lining. I did, after all, get to use his iPhone to take his photo.

Frances and Eugene have had their picture taken many times over, but how many fans have taken their photo using one of their cameras? I think that qualifies as the cherry-on-top for this interview.

Michelle Obama Dresses To Impress At Opening Of Anna Wintour's Costume Center

It’s here! Met Gala day 2014 is here!

We’ve been flipping out over a Michelle Obama sighting at the opening of Anna Wintour’s Costume Center since we first found out she might be there last week. Now, the wait is finally over. FLOTUS arrived in New York on Monday to commemorate the opening and she obviously dressed to impress Vogue’s editor-in-chief in a green, long-sleeved floral Naeem Khan dress. The ensemble is a bit more casual than her stunner from Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but the First Lady still looked lovely.

She also took the opportunity to share some adorable moments with Wintour, who we’re not used to seeing quite so… cuddly.

Guests of the ceremony include some of the biggest names in the fashion industry, from Calvin Klein to Victoria Beckham to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Other attendees couldn’t hold in their excitement from inside the venue, taking to Instagram and Twitter to share some sneak peeks of the newly renovated building.

Could this mean… an appearance at the Met Gala? You know, she’s already in town and all. It seems silly for her to leave before all the fun starts. Enjoy your first Michelle sighting of the day while we countdown and daydream about outfit options for tonight.
