The Guy From Incubus Attended Marc Jacobs

The Guy From Incubus Attended Marc Jacobs

So, I was scrolling through Getty’s photo database looking to see what famous attendees wore to Monday’s Marc Jacobs show–Anna Dello Russo, predictably crazy–and came across this bespectacled fellow. Here were my thoughts: “Oh, he looks respectable. He must be European.” Then I assumed he was an editor at some fancy foreign glossy. Dansk? No. This man is Brandon Boyd from Incubus. More »

The Editors Discuss: Nostalgia & The Rerelease Of Titanic (In 3D!)

The Editors Discuss: Nostalgia & The Rerelease Of Titanic (In 3D!)

Volatile man James Cameron is rereleasing his massive 1997 blockbuster Titanic… in 3D. If this move smacks a little too much of Star Wars: Special Edition foulness to you then: good! We’re glad to have you. Here, editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff discuss Cameron’s reasoning, its presence in pop culture and whether or not the film is still relevant in 2012. Also, how that old lady was a bitch. More »

Friday Style Icon: Shirley Manson

Friday Style Icon: Shirley Manson

We’ve had a soft spot for Garbage ever since we first saw the “I’m Only Happy When It Rains” video on MTV and, like, totally identified with it. But even if you weren’t a big Garbage fan, there was still something thrilling about frontwoman Shirley Manson, with her grungey kinderwhore style and stunning frankness with the press. So, for all the girls out there who tacked Shirley’s Spin covers to their bedroom walls in the  ’90s, here’s our gallery of appreciation. More »

The Editors Discuss: “The Freshmen” By The Verve Pipe

The Editors Discuss: "The Freshmen" By The Verve Pipe

Look, TheGloss isn’t a nostalgia blog, but we don’t always keep it topical. Sometimes editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff need to excise some Lion King-related demons. Today, the subject of their discussion is “The Freshmen,” the massive, pop culture-consuming 1997 power ballad by The Verve Pipe. The lyrical content has been a long running debate between Jennifer and Ashley and today they’re parsing it out. Sure, they haven’t listened to the song in a decade, but they figure their insight is worth more than SongMeanings.com. Right? Guys? More »

OMG: The Cast Of The Princess Bride Reunited

OMG: The Cast Of The Princess Bride Reunited

Entertainment Weekly has finally done something to (arguably) justify its existence: they’ve reunited the cast of The Princess Bride to the delight of internet people everywhere. The last time we saw Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, and Mandy Patinkin together it was 1987 and the world was fucking beautiful and perfect and innocent. Now, I guess, it’s not that way anymore but at least we have this Annie Leibovitz-looking photo. More »

Chasing Thirty: Make Amends

Chasing Thirty: Make Amends

When I was starting my list the better part of a year ago, one of the first things I added was ‘apologize to Jessica’. Jessica was one of my very best friends in high school; she was super smart, kind and one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. Some of my best teenage memories are with her. We sang in the choir together, double-dated on prom night and when I went halfway across the world to track down my first love, she went with me. We hadn’t spoken for almost ten years and I had always missed her. More »

Chasing Thirty: Bring Back the Landline

Chasing Thirty: Bring Back the Landline

When you’re approaching thirty, you find that for the first time your nostalgia is meaningful. Meaningful because you remember things from a legitimately bygone era and you’ve likely seen some major trends come and go. There’s a world that you knew that not only the children of today but also the nascent adult masses—the college co-eds and the interns—will never know. Take for instance the telephone. More »
