Interesting looking doc on the cult band described as being "punk before punk".
"Before Bad Brains, the Sex Pistols or even the Ramones, there was Death. Formed in the early ’70s by three teenage brothers from Detroit, Death is credited as being the first black punk band, and the Hackney brothers, David, Bobby, and Dannis, are now considered pioneers in their field. But it wasn’t until recently — when a dusty 1974 demo tape made its way out of Bobby’s attic nearly 30 years after Death’s heyday — that anyone outside a small group of punk enthusiasts had even heard of them. Equal parts electrifying rockumentary and epic family chronicle, the story of Death is one of brotherly love and fierce, divinely inspired expression."

Sophia Coppola's latest, with a shoplifting Emma Watson
Yet another trailer for Man of Steel. This one offers a brief reprive from the wackness of the Zod Facetime viral and claws back some of the Terrence Mallick vibe from the teaser ...but this tenpole's on thin ice.
BB Creator Vince Gilligan and Bryan "Heisenberg" Cranston talk to @Collider about shooting the final season - spoilerific if you're not up to date.

“There are few people in this world that have had as much of an impact on the industry as Carmine,” added DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio. “He bridged both the Golden and Silver Ages of comics, shepherding in some of the most successful periods in our history and setting the course of our characters that is still seen today. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will remain forever.”

Reading like a comment from @AdamBuxton's BUG show, I noticed this stickie tucked amongst the meticulously created false identies on one of the iPads in the Apple shop. It and must have taken the confused author quite a while to type out, unless it is sort of Apple strategy to appease the worries of potential buyers who weren't sure YOU HAVE TO PAY. MEAN SWOP PLUS PAY EXTRA.
