Crankin' it Out in California
California's latest music festival, All My Friends Music Festival (AMF), recently took place at the newly opened ROW DTLA.
This past weekend was its inaugural showing showcasing a wide array of talent such as RL Grime, Gucci Mane, Jamie XX, M.I.A., Jhene Aiko, Destructo, and many more!
Destructo also known as Gary Richards put this festival together with acts across hip-hop, R&B, and dance music. Richards and the team took this festival to another level by including progressive acts like Anna Lunoe, Jubilee, and Ravyn Lenae, showing that AMF is a festival for everyone which drew crowds in the tens of thousands.
If there is something we have learned from Richards and the team, it's fans will follow you anywhere to have a good time. All My Friends is a festival that should be on your summer bucket list. Below are some of the best pictures from the festival.

The classic He-Man meme video stands the test of time as an iconic example of queer-coded art.
In December of 2005, Brokeback Mountain shifted queer-coded cinema into the mainstream.
Prior to 2005, "New Queer Cinema"––a term coined by film scholar B. Ruby Rich in Sight & Sound to define the queer-themed independent film movement, which focused on rejecting heteronormativity and concentrated on LGBTQ protagonists––existed on the fringe of the film world. It's worth noting that while the movement primarily refers to the boom in independent LGBTQ films from 1992 onwards, queer cinema existed for many years prior, albeit without a proper name. But regardless of nomenclature, New Queer Cinema was typically designated for niche audiences, relegated to arthouse showings at best.
There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.
MORBIUS - Teaser Trailer www.youtube.com
If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
