Project Runway Recap: The Final Cut — Plus, Who Was Inspired by a Dead Cat?

Thursday’s Project Runway, the last episode before next week’s Season 16 finale, presented the remaining designers with one final twist. But first, we need to talk about Kentaro.

More specifically, we need to rehash Tim Gunn’s trip to Los Angeles, during which Kentaro revealed the b-a-n-a-n-a-s inspiration behind the song he composed for his runway show at New York Fashion Week: “I found a dead cat on the street. After I buried the cat, I put my ear to the ground, and this is the kind of sound I heard.”

Process this with me for a second. Kentaro was walking along one day,

Project Runway Fashion Week Photos: Can You Guess Who Designed What?

Project Runway Fashion Week Photos: Can You Guess Who Designed What?
Thursday’s Project Runway revealed which designers will show at New York Fashion Week, but you don’t have to wait until the next episode to see their collections.

At the risk of demystifying the show — is that even possible 16 seasons in? — the fashion show was held on Sept. 8, and photos of the finalists’ designs have been readily available online ever since.

The catch, of course, is that it was a blind runway. Those in attendance (including yours truly!) had no idea whose designs they were seeing, and considering only four episodes of Season 16 had aired at the time, the possibilities were many.

Project Runway Recap: Which Designers Are Headed to Fashion Week?

Project Runway Recap: Which Designers Are Headed to Fashion Week?
Following her near elimination last week, Margarita was determined to rebound on Thursday’s Project Runway — only to immediately find herself back in the danger zone.

The contestants’ final challenge, which would determine the designers showing at New York Fashion Week, was to create a high-fashion look for a woman braving the cold. And unlike Brandon, who apparently grew up in Utah and thrives in such weather, Margarita’s island upbringing left her feeling considerably less prepared. What happened next did nothing to calm her nerves.

After ringing up some of the finest rabbit pelts Mood had to offer, Margarita

Project Runway Recap: Which of the Final Five Came Ready to Fight?

Project Runway Recap: Which of the Final Five Came Ready to Fight?
The workroom became a war zone on Thursday’s Project Runway, as the five remaining contestants were tasked with designing high-fashion editorial looks inspired by “warrior women.”

Some of the designers, like Kentaro, took a more literal approach (warrior woman = samurai!), while others, like Margarita, went with a more high-concept design… only for the final product to come out as the most literal cliché of all.

I singled out Kentaro and Margarita because, at the risk of cutting directly to the chase, they wound up in the bottom two this week. Kentaro was told that his design — which underwent a

Lou Reed Dies

Lou Reed Dies
Even though his impact in front of the camera was rarely felt, the music and mood of Lou Reed has had a staggering influence on film soundtracks through the years. So it’s with heavy hearts that we report the rock pioneer has died at the age of 71.Born in Brooklyn in 1942, he got into song writing early, kicking off his career after university working at novelty records label Pickwick. After befriending John Cale, he formed a band called the Primitives, which would mutate into the Warlocks and then the incredibly influential Velvet Underground, with whom he would have some of his earliest hits.Reed split from the band in 1970 and struck out on his own as a solo singer, producing such memorable albums as Transformer, Berlin and Metal Machine Music.Film-wise, he’s cropped up in movies such as 1980’s One Trick Pony (written by and starring) Paul Simon,

"Project Runway" recap: One Man Monkey (Ep. 10.5)

Tags: Alicia HardestyProject RunwayProject Runway recapsIMDb

Last week on Project Runway, we played a weird form of musical chairs: Andrea left! Then Kooan left! Then Raul came back! Then Buffi was eliminated! Then I passed out! Luckily, I think the drama level for this episode will cool slightly back to normal.

Although perhaps not, as we soon learn it’s going to be a group challenge this week, which are always the worst. As evidenced by three of the contestants then saying, “I don’t like working with others! Grrr Hulk Angrryyyy.” Okay, maybe they didn’t say it exactly like that, but it was close. They are full of rage and disappointment already, which is always a great way to start your work day!

On top of that, their primary client is going to be Nina Garcia for Marie Claire magazine. Okay, Marie Claire At Work magazine, which I guess is a thing.

Sofi and Skrillex Collab 'Bring Out The Devil' Nearly Wiped Out on Locked & Loaded Ep

By Nick Philippou

Sofi is climbing the ladder yet again on her new two-part Ep Locked & Loaded, which hit the online charts on production pal and mega-producer Deadmau5’s Mau5trap label just a few weeks ago. Part one of the two-installment Ep includes "Broken Souvenirs' and "Joyride" both collaborations with dubstep collective and fellow Mau5trap signee Millions Like Us. But while part one is making the rounds in due fashion, buzz is building around the second installment of Locked & Loaded, "Bring Out the Devil" and a collaboration with Skrillex and Kill the Noise, which almost disappeared from the album entirely.

“The tragic story is that we recorded the track about a year ago and his hard drive was stolen, his computer, everything he had was stolen in Italy. He called up Kill the Noise and was like, 'Hey, can you save the day and reproduce the track?' And he did,

Paul Simon moving solo catalog back to Sony

By Roger Friedman Paul Simon is going back to Columbia Records.

After three decades with Warner Music, Simon tells me he’s moving his whole solo catalog back to Sony/Columbia Records. That’s everything from 1972’s “Paul Simon” album through his most recent, “Surprise” CD. As a solo artist Simon was with Columbia Records from 1972 until 1980’s “One Trick Pony.” But he’d also been at Columbia through his entire career as half of Simon & (Art) Garfunkel, from 1965 through 1970, ending with “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

When I ran into Paul last Friday night at Yankee Stadium he told me, “I’ve been trying to get my catalog back in the same place as Simon & Garfunkel for a long time.” He is thrilled that it’s happening.

At the same time, Simon is finishing a new album with long time producer Phil Ramone. “It’s the best work I’ve done in 20 years,

I Am Afraid Of Harmony Korine


And that's precisely how he likes it, I assume.

Ja from Mnpp here. If y'all are familiar with my tastes at all at this point - and if you are, my prayers are with you - then you know I don't hesitate at reveling in garbage. Often. Deeply. That vile and base genre that is the horror film is my true love (and the gorier, the bad-tastier they are, there's a pretty decent chance that I will stand loud and proud to champion them), but I roll around like a pig in muck in all manner of cinematic trash whenever I can. It's a living.

And yet... somehow I'd actively avoided all of Korine's films - at least those he'd directed - for a good long while. Something about them creeped me out. Even if it was just the names. Gummo. Julien Donkey-Boy. They promised split lips and acne scars
