Marfa Journal

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013
Right on Artists have their own way of doing things. And so it is that MARFA JOURNAL -- a new publication "created by artists for artists" -- came to be. The magazine plans to be a center of culture much like the tiny desert down of Marfa, Texas that inspired its creation and name. The first issue, dissects into easy to swallow sections featuring raw, casual, decadent, romantic, obscure and progressive content featuring the likes of Odd Future, Skye Parrott, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Korine. Issue 1 also features the likes of Erik Brunetti and The Total Princess on two different hardback covers. See some selects from the new MARFA JOURNAL below.

Natasha Lyonne on TV

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012
Natasha Lyonne will be on your box (no cheerleader) Some husky-voiced actresses get a DUI and make critically-panned biopics, others turn liquor into liquorice and develop a network TV show. Natasha Lyonne should give Lindsay a few tips because she's set to star and produce a new sitcom for Fox. The currently untitled project will be a single-camera comedy about Stella (Lyonne) living with her conservative brother after she leaves rehab. It's semi-autobiographical because Lyonne was arrested for driving drunk in 2001 and went through a court-ordered drug problem. Before the sitcom airs on Fox, you can see Lyonne in a Netflix original series called Orange is the New Black, from the creator of Weeds. It's about a women's prison. Seems like Natasha Lyonne is really cornering the "bad bitch" TV market. We're not complaining. She can be our anti-New Girl any day.

The Canyons Starring Lohan

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012
Lindsay Lohan, grindhouse style Written by Bret Easton Ellis and directed by Paul Schrader, The Canyons is a neo-noir thriller set in Los Angeles. Yes, the minds behind American Psycho and Taxi Driver decided to take a chance on Lindsay Lohan. She plays Tara who's "sweet as sin." They also cast porn star James Deen--"a 'huge' new talent." According to the film's synopsis, The Canyons is about Hollywood 20-somethings who get wrapped up in the dark world of sex and mind games. Lindsay Lohan has obviously been method acting for the past few years preparing for this role. A few more interesting facts about The Canyons: it was largely funded by Kickstarter, American Apparel provided the wardrobe and Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning did the score. This could be a new cult indie flick, or a complete disaster. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until next year, when it's released, to find out. In the meantime, check out the trailer for The Canyons below.
