One of the most influential filmmakers known for his horror and sci fi films, John Carpenter, just released an anthology of his movie themes. A composer on top of screenwriting and directing his films, Carpenter is the creative genius behind classics like Halloween, The Thing, The Fog, and many more. Celebrating a career that has now spanned multiple decades, today Carpenter has released an anthology of his movie themes for anyone who would like to get severely spooked just in time for Halloween. In anticipation of this release, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross released an adaptation of the famed "Halloween" theme last week. In light of Tom Petty's recent passing FKYA released a cover of "Free Falling" and this week saw a plethora of amazing releases from: Collective Soul, Sophia Grace, Bråves, Kiso, Steve Angello, Brent Butler, and Le Youth.

Lin Manuel-Miranda's Hamilton has taken the theater world by storm since its 2015 Broadway premiere.

Using a Black dialect isn't a meme—it's cultural appropriation.
As Black Lives Matter protests have rightfully taken the world by storm over the past couple of months, we're long overdue for thorough evaluations of just how often aspects of Black heritage have been co-opted by white audiences.
It should be obvious that much of fashion and music as we know it today was invented by Black people. We (hopefully) all know by now that we can no longer accept Blackface and use of the n-word by non-Black people as the norm—and Internet users have tried "canceling" offenders in the public eye, with varying degrees of success.
