White Boy Rick Review

When White Boy Rick works, it is a beautiful and heartfelt drama about family and the injustice of the legal system when it comes to the war on drugs, featuring stunning performances by both established actors and a promising newcomer. But the second half of the film loses itself and rushes through the most interesting aspects of the story.

You may be forgiven for thinking Yann Demange’s sophomore feature was going to be like Scarface. It’s got everything you would want out of a crime film – an underdog in a bad family situation who suddenly becomes successful by selling crack cocaine at age 15. Yet White Boy Rick has more in common with Spring Breakers than Scarface. This is a film about the optimism of a family who is convinced hard work will make anyone achieve the American Dream, and how that family can endure the hardships of the ’80s drug epidemic.

Zombie Boy, Rick Genest, Dies at 32

PARIS — Fashion and music figures took to social media outlets on Friday to mourn the death of Rick Genest, known as Zombie Boy, the 32-year-old, tattooed Nicola Formichetti muse who had also worked with Lady Gaga.
“The entire Dulcedo family is in shock and upset by this tragedy,” said Montreal-based Dulcedo Management, Genest’s talent agency, in a statement on Facebook on Thursday.
“Thank you ZB for these beautiful moments in your presence and for your radiant smile,” it added.
While news outlets and celebrities reacted to the death as a suicide, Genest’s agent, Karim S. Leduc, said he had fallen off of a third floor balcony Wednesday in what may have been an accident.
The Canadian, who had described his profession to WWD as a “sideshow performer” and whose acts included writhing on beds of nails, shot to fame after being discovered by Formichetti on Facebook. The designer hired Genest for the Thierry Mugler 2010 campaign and flew him to Paris for the men’s show.
“I like the whole freak-show atmosphere,” Genest told WWD in 2011, speaking backstage after his turn on the catwalk.
His fame continued to grow after he appeared in a high-profile advertisement for Dermablend that garnered millions of hits and launched

Birkenstock Box x Rick Owens Debuts at His Los Angeles Store

Following stops in Berlin with Andreas Murkudis, New York with Barneys New York and Milan with 10 Corso Como, Birkenstock’s mobile, spatial retail concept known as Birkenstock Box lands in Los Angeles today in partnership with Rick Owens through April 21.
“I feel like The Box is a natural extension of my store spilling out onto the street,” said Owens. He’s a fan of the iconic footwear, noting, “I wear them every summer on the Lido beach in Venice.”
The Rick Owens Birkenstock Box, situated outside of Owens’ Los Angeles store on La Brea Avenue, will carry a limited collection of Birkenstock pieces created with Owens, comprising thirteen sandals retailing from $ 325 to $ 525 and three legwear styles priced at $ 100. Owens took the classic Birkenstock styles Arizona, Madrid and Boston and added his own touch by extending the straps almost to the floor and simultaneously extending the holes in the straps. He used army felt, suede, full grain leather and longhair cow fur – all with a full leather footbed lining.
But wait, there’s more. “Rick Owens is unmistakable and beyond fashion – the whole Box interior, architecture and objects were defined by Rick Owens. There is much more

Michèle Lamy, Donna Karan Hold No Punches at Rick Owens

The artist, wife and business partner of Rick Owens, Michèle Lamy, said she is working on many projects, including the ongoing Corner Shop in Selfridges, which includes punching bags decorated by designers and artists. Through the concept called Lamyland, she is posing the question of what everybody is fighting for today.
“The boxing is a good metaphor,” she said. “Joyce Carol Oates said it better than me, that you know you are going to get blows, but you need to stand up for your beliefs.”
Lamy said she was sporting Rick Owens at the show, but that’s not always the case. “I’m not completely monogamous,” she said.
In town to showcase her Urban Zen collection to buyers, fellow designer Donna Karan wouldn’t be doing much physical punching, sporting a broken hand. “I wear Rick,” she said, adding she is a faithful guest at Owens’ show. “I’ve always dreamed of him doing Donna Karan. So I wouldn’t have to work anymore,” she smiled.

Rick and Morty: Season 3 Review

Note: this is a mostly spoiler-free review of Rick and Morty’s third season. Check out my previous Season 3 reviews for more spoiler-filled, in-depth discussions of each episode.

The first episode of Rick and Morty’s third season ends with Rick breaking the fourth wall (as he’s often wont to do) and telling his grandson that they’re in store for the darkest, craziest season of their adventures yet. That scene really set the stage for what was to come. Season 3 lived up to its promising by even more dark and unpredictable than the previous two. It might be a stretch to call Season 3 the show’s best, but in many ways it’s the most consistent and ambitious so far.

Rick and Morty’s 10 Best Cameos & Easter Eggs

Like many animated sitcoms, Rick and Morty likes to cram in a huge amount of pop culture references. Generally, the series isn’t shy about flaunting these references and wearing its influences on its sleeve. After all, the show did basically start life as a parody of Back to the Future.

But there are times when Rick and Morty is much more subtle about its pop culture references. And sometimes the series includes hidden, clever callbacks to its own characters and punchlines. Check out the slideshow below for our favorite hidden cameos, Easter eggs and references in the first three seasons of Rick and Morty…

Rick and Morty just wrapped up its third season, and the show is just as entertaining as ever. Check out our review of the Season 3 finale to find out why we called it, “a fun, memorable way to wrap up the show’s most eclectic season to date.”

Dan Harmon Finally Reveals Reason Behind ‘Rick And Morty’ Delays

It’s been roughly an eternity since the last season of “Rick and Morty” (or more accurately, roughly under two years).

The delay for the third season has gone on so long that co-creator Dan Harmon is now worried that fans are speculating the Adult Swim’s animated show won’t be coming back at all. “Rick and Morty” debuted the season three premiere on April Fool’s, but since then there’s essentially been radio silence on the subsequent episodes.

So to quell online rumors that he’s been fighting with co-creator Justin Roiland or that the show is doomed, Harmon wrote a statement truncated into tweets this morning. This apparently isn’t like the 2012 situation with Harmon’s former show, “Community,” when the NBC network and Sony ousted him, leaving a carcass of the television program to decay through a horrid Harmon-less season. 

Harmon and Roiland are just taking forever to perfect this thing. 

“But the truth in this case is so very boring,” wrote Harmon. “I will put it to you as objectively as I can … The reason S3 took long is because it took long to write, because it was S3 of a show that we were scared to make worse than S2 or S1.”

Fair enough. It’s still entirely unclear when this wonderful show is coming back though.

Below is Harmon’s long, “hungover thread” on Twitter:

Slick Rick Praises The First-Ever Global Hip-Hop Day

June 8 marks Global Hip-Hop Day, during which we celebrate the global and cultural impact of the genre that was started some 40 years ago

The first-ever event, which is held in conjunction with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, the office of The Bronx Borough President, and New York radio station Hot 97, will take place in the Bronx and will commemorate hip-hop’s ability to unite people and create positive impact around the globe.

During the day, there will be a public proclamation and unveiling of Hip-Hop Boulevard at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, which is the birthplace of hip-hop and home of legendary hip-hop pioneer Kool Herc.

The special ceremony will also recognize Fat Joe, Slick Rick, Kool Herc and The Lox as this year’s of ICON honorees for their vast musical contributions.

For legendary rapper Slick Rick, Global Hip-Hop Day will help solidify the future of the genre’s place in society.

“It’s a good thing, because hip-hop is due recognition,” Rick said in an interview with HuffPost. “And it’s addressing the influence it has over modern day youth and the future of modern society.”

The English-born MC ― who’s known for his charismatic style and vivid storytelling lyrics ― rose to hip-hop prominence in the 80s with the release of his critically acclaimed debut 1988 album, “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick.”

As one of New York’s longstanding hip-hop radio stations, Hot 97’s SVP/Market Manager of Emmis New York​, Charlie Morgan said that the station aims to celebrate the extension of hip-hop’s global reach.

“We want to both honor the origins of hip-hop music and the hip-hop culture as being born and bred in New York City, specifically the Bronx,” Morgan told HuffPost. “At the same time, we want to celebrate the global reach and impact of this native New York art form. Hot 97 is proud of our heritage and role as the first hip-hop radio station, as well as the role we are playing in the global expansion of this music with the international expansion of Summer Jam and global distribution of Hot 97 online.”

Rick said he’d like for hip-hop to unite fans on topics such as foreign affairs.

“It could be a pulpit for the modern day youth to express its opinions about issues ― global warming, foreign affairs ― as far as how to get along without all the unrest and stuff like that,” he said.

This Rick Owens Runway Is Completely, Totally NSFW

rick-owens-fall-2015-penis

Guys, this is not how I envisioned my Friday morning going. Rick Owens just showed his men’s fall 2015 collection in Paris and there were penises. Specifically, garments hemmed with a high arch in front so that certain areas got to see the light of day. I don’t think these could be legally worn anywhere, so, phew, but also, huh? Owens is an avant-garde designer who likes to make waves (remember his awesome spring 2014 collection with steppers?) and get us talking, so: mission complete.

Also—think he read Ruth Wilson’s thoughts on female versus male nudity?

Did anyone else see this and immediately feel her jaw drop?

Rick Ross Arrested After Concert In North Carolina

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Rapper Rick Ross has been released after his arrest following a North Carolina concert.

Greensboro Police Department spokeswoman Susan Danielsen says that Ross was taken into custody Friday night after the SuperJam concert. She says a court had issued an order for his arrest because he failed to appear in court on a previous misdemeanor marijuana charge. The rapper, whose real name is William L. Roberts, was taken into custody after his performance. Danielsen says he was released on $ 1,000 bond.

Messages seeking comment weren’t immediately returned by a spokesman for Universal Music Group or executives at a booking agency that works with Ross.

Rick Snyder Floats State Assistance For Detroit

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Rick Snyder has met with Michigan lawmakers to discuss the possibility of contributing state money to shore up Detroit’s pension plans and prevent the sale of city-owned art.

The governor and GOP senators met behind closed doors Thursday after foundations committed $ 330 million this week. Snyder may ask lawmakers to match the foundations’ contributions. Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville confirms talks about state involvement but says no final plan or request has been made to legislators. He’s cautiously optimistic of a solution in the “near future.”

Richardville says he expects Michigan residents to be most understanding if “we’re talking about protecting pensioners vs. bailing out a city.”

The bankruptcy judge overseeing Detroit’s restructuring plans to rule Thursday on a renegotiated interest rate swaps deal that could save millions.
