The Swedish beauty Ingrid Bergman was one of the top stars of the 1940s (Casablanca, Gaslight, Notorious), but her career in the U.S. derailed in 1949 when she left her husband and daughter for the Italian director Roberto Rossellini. Bergman could not work in an American film for seven years, though upon her return, in 1956, she won an Oscar for Anastasia. LIFE’s Gordon Parks was a close friend, and Bergman trusted him to the extent that she invited him to the 1949 shoot for Stromboli— directed by Rossellini, at the time perceived as the villain — where Parks made this haunting portrait.

In defense of riffing good films. ~ The Dennison Collective

From @mst3k, a show that advertised all movies shown as ‘the worst we can find (la la la),’ to @rifftrax, which has films like 'Casablanca’ and 'The Wizard of Oz’ in its library. While bad movies benefit the most from a good riffing, is choosing a movie for the MSTing treatment still as damning a move as it was in the 90s?

I don’t necessarily think so.

More on the art of riffing, the benefit it brings to box office flops, and why it’s not just for turkeys anymore


Habibi Funk // حبيبي فنك : Abdou El Omari - Afrah El Mahgreb (Morocco 1976)

soundcloud.com/habibifunk // facebook.com/habibifunk

“Afrah El Mahgreb” is my favorite track of Abdou El Omari’s “Nuits D'ete” LP. Until my last tip to Morocco I had never ever seen a copy and this time I was lucky enough to find one. Abdou was a hair stylist and also had a small record shop in Casablanca in the 1970s. Apart from that he made strange unique music with his synthesizer. A weird mixture of Arabic music, Jazz and early electronics.

أفراح المغرب من أفضل تسجيلات عبدو العمري بالنسبة إلي، من ألبومه “ Nuits d'été ”
لم أجد من قبل قط أي نسخة لهذا التسجيل إلا مؤخرا حيث حالفني الحظ و وجدت واحدة منها عندما كنت بالمغرب مؤخرا. عبدو كان حلاقا كما أنه كان يملك محل بيع تسجيلات بالدارالبيضاء في السبعينات. و بالإضافة لهذا فقد عرف بنوع موسيقاه الغريب و المميز بطابعه الخاص بعض الشيء حيث يضم مزيجا من موسيقى الجاز و الموسيقى العربية و الموسيقى الإلكترونية الحديثة.
