The Other Side of the Wind is the latest in Netflix’s aggressive push into making its own films. Other recent high-profile projects have included The White Helmets, which won the Academy Award for best short documentary at the 2017 Oscars, and Martin Scorsese’s return to the gangster film (and reunion with Robert De Niro) The Irishman, which is scheduled for release in 2018.

Pearl Jam, Journey, Yes Score Epic Night at Rock Hall of Fame – Rolling Stone

The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony featured Steve Perry’s first onstage appearance with Journey in 26 years (even though he didn’t actually sing), a Yes reunion with Rush’s Geddy Lee on bass, a moving tribute to Tupac Shakur and the first performance of Pearl Jam’s original lineup since early 1991. But it was David Letterman, a last-minute replacement for Neil Young and the only non-musician of the evening to speak, that summed up the feeling of the event best. “When I came here for rehearsals, I was reminded what a gift live music is,” he said while inducting Pearl Jam. “Never take live music for granted.”

Who Can We Trust on The Walking Dead Right Now? | Vanity Fair

Going into the Season 7 finale, quite a few characters deserve our suspicion.

Negan’s former right-hand man declared last week that he wanted to switch sides and team up with Rick and his former torture victim, Daryl. (Predictably, Daryl wasn’t crazy about that idea.) But is Dwight telling the truth, or trying to pull the wool over Team Family’s eyes?

Reddit plans a profile page redesign reminiscent of Facebook and Twitter 

Reddit has been trying to make its site more accessible to a wider pool of users, and today the company is planning to show off one of the ways it plans to do that: by making the service a little bit more like Facebook and Twitter.

From today, Reddit is going to start offering users a new profile page design that will let them make posts directly to the pages themselves (not just communities), and Reddit users who are logged in will be able to follow the profile for new posts.

The news was made public in a post in Reddit itself last night, which noted that the new profile view was reported to have been tested out first with a “few redditors” starting Tuesday the 21st. It was further confirmed in smaller detail with a short item on Reuters quoting Alexis Ohanian, the company’s co-founder.
