- Making Blues Brothers With John Belushi and Dan Akroyd—“We Had a Budget for Cocaine” | Vanity Fair – The pitch was simple: “John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Blues Brothers, how about it?” But the film The Blues Brothers became a nightmare for Universal Pictures, wildly off schedule and over budget, its fate hanging on the amount of cocaine Belushi consumed. From the 1973 meeting of two young comic geniuses in a Toronto bar through the careening, madcap production of John Landis’s 1980 movie, Ned Zeman chronicles the triumph of an obsession.

- A Musical Overview of Bret Easton Ellis’ Oeuvre – Though cross-pollination between books and music is an age-old trend, cult novelist Bret Easton Ellis fills his books with more music references than anyone else we can think of, and his works are inextricably woven into the pop culture they portray — partially because it seems like every time Ellis makes a music reference in a novel, a band is making an Ellis reference in a song. We’ve put together a master list of music mentioned throughout his entire oeuvre, complete with streaming playlists so you can fill your day with a BEE soundtrack. We had some help from the official source, but finding that insufficient, went through ourselves and picked out some more of our favorite musical moments and shout-outs throughout the novels.

- A Game of Shadows: more to the mystery | fxguide – The arm plates were shot on a Phantom HD Gold camera at 432fps. “We ended up going 19 times slower than real-time for the frozen time moment,” says Quintavalle, “with things moving enough to see stuff rippling. The Phantom can go a lot higher speed than that still, but we didn’t need it to. We shot the whole thing fully slow motion, something like 7,000 or 8,000 frames of footage which we then ramped in and out of.”

- George Lucas (NYT Mag) – “I’m retiring,” Lucas said. “I’m moving away from the business, from the company, from all this kind of stuff.” He was careful to leave himself an out clause for a fifth “Indiana Jones” film. But otherwise, “Red Tails” will be the last blockbuster Lucas makes. “Once this is finished, he’s done everything he’s ever wanted to do,” says Rick McCallum, who has been producing Lucas’s films for more than 20 years. “He will have completed his task as a man and a filmmaker.”
- Michelle Williams (GQ) – “Oh God,” she says. “Wow. I mean, I must have said that twelve years ago, before I learned to shut my mouth. Wow.” Then, less to me than to herself: “All right, I can take it. I’m 31—I can take it.”
