Steve Ramsden noticed acted upon a hunch that a lot of us had thought: Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" have some similar vibes to them. Of course, Anderson and Kubrick are both extremely detailed orientated with their sets and shots, and Anderson is definitely influenced by Kubrick, but Mr Ramsden has made a parody trailer of what could be Wes Anderson's "The Shining."

We want to go to Finland, and perhaps Antti Kalevi will give us reason to. The Helsinki, Finland-based artist has pretty much captured all the trends and styles of what is going on in art in 2015, and made a series of playful illustrations/computer drawings called "Art Show." These are fantastic.

“What book are you reading?” or “This work reminds me of a quote from the post-modern author XYZ.” Invariably bandied about in culture conversations since the invention of the printing press, it’s fun and enlightening to match literature with visual art.

From Cleon Peterson on a Philip K. Dick novel, Parra on Kurt Vonnegut, and David Hockney on Ali Smith, Bravery enhances storied literature with a multi-faceted identity.
