Future-electro with dark ethereal undertones.
Los Angeles-based dark dream-pop artist Opāru introduces the music video for "Ghost To Follow."
Opāru, aka Dianna St. Hilaire, who borrowed her name from the Japanese term for the opal birthstone, explains the song, "You are so strong and wise and powerful but you live in the shadow of who you really are so that people around you will accept you. You're so afraid that if you break through to your true beauty that you will lose those around you."

Directed by Morningstar Sargenti, the video depicts a kind of watery dance against the stark vastness of the desert, as Opāru's haunting tones narrate her longing for liberation.
"I watch the world go by / For you / I'll be your ghost / And I still wake up alone."

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.

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.
