15 Electrifying Musical Performances from Hugh Hefner's Playboy After Dark

15 Electrifying Musical Performances from Hugh Hefner's Playboy After Dark
It’s difficult to find an aspect of popular culture that Hugh Hefner didn’t influence during his long, remarkable life. Spanning journalism, television, film, fashion and, of course, sexuality, his impact on music is one of the least heralded aspects of his legacy. Over the course of two seasons, Hefner used his weekly syndicated variety show, Playboy After Dark, as a platform for a broad spectrum of artists.

Psychedelic sounds from San Fransisco (courtesy of the Grateful Dead), early heavy metal (provided by Deep Purple), country-tinged balladeers (thanks to Linda Ronstadt and the Byrds) and old-school crooners (like the

Review. "Logan Lucky"—Steven Soderbergh Remains in Fine Form

  • MUBI
There has always been something rather Hawksian about Steven Soderbergh. Speaking with the French magazine Positif in 1993, Soderbergh actually brought up Howard Hawks, a venerable icon of Hollywood cinema, stating, “The career I would like is John Huston’s or Howard Hawks’s. You know, very varied, many different subjects.” It’s true Soderbergh and Hawks diverge greatly in terms of form—the latter is straightforward, classically composed, no frills; the former is stylish, spontaneous, technically innovative—but their recurring subject matter, with a little stretching, isn’t far removed. Take the focus on working professionals in Traffic (2000), the Ocean’s films (2001, ‘04, ‘07), The Girlfriend Experience (2009), and Magic Mike (2012); though not exactly traditional Hawksian occupations, there is a firm appreciation for a job to do and to be done well. More than that, though, what connects Howard Hawks and Steven Soderbergh is their uniform consistency, not necessarily in terms of year-after-year quantity,

Who’ll Stop the Rain

A killer book (Dog Soldiers) must hide behind a Credence Clearwater tune. Karel Reisz’s killer movie about the moral residue of Vietnam scores as both drama and action, as disillusioned counterculture smugglers versus corrupt narcotics cops. Just don’t expect it to really have much to say about the Vietnam experience. But hey, the cast is tops — Nick Nolte, Richard Masur, Anthony Zerbe — and the marvelous Tuesday Weld is even better as a pill-soaked involuntary initiate into the pre- War On Drugs smuggling scene.

Paris Jackson on Why She Decided to Step Into the Spotlight: ‘I Was Born with a Platform, and I Didn’t Want to Waste It’
Although she grew up as the daughter of late music icon, Michael Jackson, 19-year-old Paris Jackson is explaining why she’s just now stepping into the spotlight.

“I honestly used to have no motivation whatsoever to be in the public eye; it scared me,” Paris tells Teen Vogue in the cover story for its June music issue. “I’ve seen what it can do to people, plenty get hurt.”

“But after a long time of thinking, I started to really see the kind of impact I already have on people, how I was born with a plat­form, and I

Judge Asked to Disqualify Universal's Law Firm From 'Straight Outta Compton' Suit

After a brief pause, thanks to the death of the plaintiff, former N.W.A manager Jerry Heller's defamation lawsuit over Universal's Straight Outta Compton is again live. The first order of business is a motion that aims to kick Universal's attorneys at Greenberg Traurig off the case.

Heller died in September at the age of 75 after a career where he worked with artists including Creedence Clearwater Revival, Marvin Gaye, Pink Floyd, Elton John and Kraftwerk. He's foremost known for his collaboration with N.W.A's Eazy-e, where the two began Ruthless Records and helped mainstream gangsta rap.

But before he died, Heller didn't appreciate Paul...

Hue 1968 Miniseries In The Works With Michael Mann Attached

Now here’s a piping hot package that’s beginning to coalesce at a brisk clip. According to Deadline, writer-director Michael Mann and Michael De Luca are joining forces for an eight-to-ten-hour miniseries based on Hue 1968: The Turning Point in the American War in Vietnam, the soon-to-be-published novel from scribe Mark Bowden.

If that name sounds familiar, it should; Bowden is also the creative mind behind wartime drama Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War – the same Black Hawk Down that Ridley Scott engineered into a taut, nail-biting thriller back in ’01. Set to release on June 6th, Hue 1968 takes place during the height of the Vietnam War, when napalm was the weapon of choice and Creedence Clearwater Revival blared out over the speakers.

Perhaps most intriguing of all, though, is the fact that Mark Bowden’s novel will present a no-holds-barred account of the Vietnam War, including

Exclusive: Brad Paisley Fights for Better Treatment of Us Veterans on New Song - 'We Have to Make This Right'

Exclusive: Brad Paisley Fights for Better Treatment of Us Veterans on New Song - 'We Have to Make This Right'
Brad Paisley is tipping his cowboy hat to our U.S. veterans.

Only Et was with the country star in San Diego last week, where he filmed his latest music video aboard the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier and alongside the iconic Unconditional Surrender kissing statue. The song, "Love and War," serves as the title track for Paisley's 11th studio album (out Friday) and delivers a pointed message regarding the treatment of vets right here at home with the chorus: "They say all is fair in love and war, but that ain't true, it's wrong. They send you off to die for us, forget about you when you don't."

"I think the message is, really, we can do better," Paisley says. "We can do a lot better when it comes to taking care of veterans. I don't think there's anyone who would disagree with that. There's a line in the song which is one of my favorite lines, 'We

Zach Woods Compares His ‘Silicon Valley’ Character to a ‘New England Mom,’ and Here’s Why That’s Hysterically Tragic

Zach Woods Compares His ‘Silicon Valley’ Character to a ‘New England Mom,’ and Here’s Why That’s Hysterically Tragic
Think of your standard YouTube character tribute videos. Three seasons of a show like “Silicon Valley” usually get you some classic one-liners, memorable character beats and a few outtakes for good measure, all wrapped up in a few minutes.

This one for Jared, Zach Woods’ character on HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” runs the length of an entire episode of the show.

Jared has always been at the center of the “Silicon Valley” story (there he is on the Season 1 poster, in full Steve Jobs pose, literally at the side of Pied Piper co-founder Richard Hendricks), but Woods has grown to be the show’s heart too. In a world of backstabbing and self-interest, Jared has remained the show’s sole, true altruist.

“I sometimes think of it as an archetypical family,” Woods said. “Erlich is the rambunctious father, Kumail is the baby boy, Gilfoyle is the cat and Richard is like the favorite son.

Free Fire: The 70’s Crime Pictures It Takes a Bullet From

Tony Black on Free Fire

Let’s be honest, if you’ve seen Free Fire, you’ll know it’s not particularly like a lot of the 1970’s crime films that, on the face of it, Ben Wheatley’s movie would sit alongside. This pulpy, lean slice of comic violence owes more to the early 90’s stylistics of down’n’dirty Tarantino than to Scorsese or Friedkin, but given i’ts set in the 70’s, was executive produced by Martin Scorsese, and certainly has plenty of now retro-connections to that decade, this seems a good place to analyse Free Fire in the context of the crime pictures of that decade. Where does it fit? Should it fit at all? Or should it rather tuck in behind Reservoir Dogs and, anachronistically, exist slightly out of the time it’s very much rooted in?

Crime thrillers of the 1970’s, for a start,

‘Free Fire’ Score: Listen to All The Music from Portishead’s Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury
After premiering at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival, Ben Wheatley’s “Free Fire” is finally gearing up for its theatrical debut on April 21.

Chasing Kong

  • MUBI
"Is this the moving picture ship?"—Opening line of King Kong (1933)You can get close to madness trying to fit the entire cultural legacy of the original King Kong into a single box. Even setting aside the two Hollywood remakes, you're still left with hastily made or quickly buried sequels, follow-ups like Mighty Joe Young (1949), a Universal Studios ride, a direct-to-video cartoon, a children’s TV series, and a set of 1960s Japanese-American co-productions—Kingu Kongu!—which saw the big ape square off against Godzilla and "Mechani-Kong" in showdowns with worse special effects than the film that preceded them by thirty years. Apologies for anything I've left out, because by this point King Kong is a cottage industry unto itself, an old-fashioned self-perpetuating Hollywood myth that's morphed in meaning and presentation but never entirely gone away. The sight of King Kong atop the Empire State Building, with its a mixture

Kong: Skull Island Review – Not Bad, But Not Nearly As Awesome As We Hoped

Legendary Pictures, the company who revived Godzilla a few years back, is now trying to do the same for the classic Universal movie monster King Kong with the intentions of bringing the two together sometime in the future. If nothing else, they seem to have learned a lesson from Godzilla in terms of making sure to show the star of the movie as much as possible rather than hiding or teasing him.

After a prologue showing two downed WWII pilots encountering Kong, we cut forward to 1973 as the Vietnam War is coming to an end, and a group of scientists have discovered a new island in the Pacific with plans to send an exploratory mission. Spearheaded by John Goodman’s Bill Randa, they request a military escort, and as luck would have it, a group of soldiers led by Samuel L. Jackson’s Col. Packard, have just finished their actions

'Kong: Skull Island' Premiere — Brie Larson and '70s Rock Take Center Stage
The Los Angeles Kong: Skull Island premiere seemed like it was DJ'ed from your dad's vinyl collection.

AC/DC, the Who and Creedence Clearwater Revival blasted over Hollywood Boulevard as the guests and stars of the Warner Bros. and Legendary feature filed onto a teal carpet. Some Led Zeppelin was thrown in, for good measure.  

Skull Island is the latest Kong iteration, this time set in post-Vietnam 1970s, following a ragtag group of scientists and a military unit on a survey mission of an uncharted island inhabited by the titular ape.
