Jim Henson’s film Labyrinth has been my favorite movie since I was seven. For 14 years I’ve been an adamant fan of the dark children’s movie staring a young Jennifer Connelly and a not-quite-so-young David Bowie. I was entranced by the playful but undeniably sinister nature of the film and still to this day watch it at least once a week.
However, I also think that exposing me to this movie at a young and primitive age simultaneously deeply fucked up my relationships with men and also made me the passionate feminist I am today. Read More

Flavorwire delivers a healthy dose of diversity with its spot-on list of the Most Fascinating People of 2013. An inspiring reminder that game-changers still exist within the mainstream, the list includes sub cultural icons such as riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna and barrier-defying Orange is the New Black actress Laverne Cox.
The list feels fresh and evokes a universal sense of gratitude for this year’s trail blazing artists. With all the media attention that surrounds celebrities, take a moment to appreciate the work of budding feminist Lorde. Read More

Canadian astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield has blown my mind with his cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” done in space! As his 5-month tour aboard the International Space Station did not compromise his mustache, it sure gave him the proper perspective to cover this epic tale of isolation.
I’ll give it to the Commander, his version is far less full of despair than our favorite alien, and has been flying around Internet space further proving that being an astronaut is the coolest job ever.

Wowza, David Bowie. You done it again.
“The Next Day” is the third video from his new album of the same name. It was written and conceived by Bowie, and he also stars in the vid. As usual our man’s in good company; this time he acts alongside A-listers Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard, with direction by Floria Sigismondi.
The video plays out as follows: while Bowie croons about death and pain in a dingy church brothel, Oldman courts Cotillard in slo-mo on the dance floor - until the whole thing escalates to full on stigmata and Christ references. Read More

As if “The Scream” wasn’t incentive enough to head to The Museum of Modern Art, Tilda Swinton will be hanging out in a glass box periodically throughout the rest of 2013 as part of her piece “The Maybe.” Swinton previously performed this piece at London's Serpentine Gallery and at a museum in Rome.
Maybe it will be cool? According to museum sources, the Oscar-winning actress does not have a schedule of her appearances, and no one on staff knows exactly when she will spend her days in the box, or where the box will be located within the museum. Read More

Flawless as always, 2007 Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton is the new face of Chanel’s Pre-Fall Collection. According to Karl Lagerfeld, Swinton “perfectly embodies the Paris Edimbourg collection.” He further states, “she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance.”
The collection, filled with kilts, tartan, and tweed, heavily channels Scottish themes and allows Swinton to return to her family’s Scottish roots. Currently living in Nairn, Scotland, Swinton is the perfect choice to represent Lagerfeld’s creations. Read More

Of all David Bowie's myriad alter egos, perhaps none is as well-known and iconic as Ziggy Stardust, the apocalyptic rock'n'roller and self-proclaimed prophet of the Starmen who sang of the lack of meaning in everyday life and ultimately ended up committing rock'n'roll suicide. Read More
