  • Sundance Diary, Day 7: One Swag House to Rule Them All and the Documentary of the Festival

    Take Airbnb Haus. It’s a two-story cottage not far from the bottom of Park City’s Main Street. To pass by it on a Sundance shuttle bus is to pull the stop cord, get off, and wander inside.

  • Sean Penn and Charlize Theron’s Gun Sculpture … and Other Artistic Statements From This Week’s Tabloids

    “Sean Penn has laid down his arms. At his January 11 Help Haiti Home benefit, the Oscar winner — once photographed wielding a shotgun in New Orleans — announced that his 65-piece gun collection will be turned into a sculpture by artist Jeff Koons.” I’ll never get tired of this dumb story. I mean, it’s not dumb that Penn is getting rid of his guns at the request of his gun activist girlfriend Charlize Theron, but it’s pretty dumb that Koons is going to make a sculpture out of them. Can’t wait to see it!

    In case you were out learning valuable lessons on when it’s inappropriate to go Beast Mode, here’s what you missed in sports on Wednesday: Thunder forward Kevin Durant scored another 36 points, and point guard Reggie Jackson continued to torment the Spurs as Oklahoma City beat San Antonio, 111-105, to grab pole position in the Western Conference.

  • The Ballad of Boogie

    When DeMarcus Cousins entered the league, he demeaned coaches, fought with teammates, and argued with referees. He was a tyrant. But he inflicted the most damage on himself.

  • David O. Russell Bringing a Country Club Drama to ABC

  • Jay Z and Will Smith Are Producing ‘Higher,’ an Electronic Dance Music Comedy at HBO

    They’ll produce through their production companies, Marcy Media and Overbrook, so it’s unclear how directly involved they’ll be, but at least you know Jay Z and Will Smith have experienced the whole Skrillexperience. Now: how many jokes can you think of about guys being paid millions of dollars to go up and press play?
