FILMS ON COMET IN JANUARY

The Craft (1996)
Teen movies might want you to believe that high school was all about keggers and beautiful cheerleaders, but we prefer The Craft’s version of events. Featuring a quartet of angsty teens who turn to witchcraft in the face of personal high school horrors, The Craft casts a spell that leaves you wishing you had an occult stor on your local main street.

Labyrinth (1986)
January will mark the second anniversary of the day we lost pop culture legend David Bowie, so this month’s COMET is honoring his memory in the best way we coul think of …. by screening one of the most iconic roles of his career. Back in 1986, Bowie stole the show as the Goblin King in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, from the music to the costumes, this was Bowie at his best.

Kottonmouth Kings Release “Walk the Line” Video From ‘Krown Power’ Album

Kottonmouth Kings Release “Walk the Line” Video From ‘Krown Power’ Album

kottonmouth-kinds-2015-1-group

Placentia, CA based psych/hip hop group Kottonmouth Kings have released a new music video for “Walk The Line” featuring C4mula from their deluxe edition album Krown Power, that is out now via United Family Music / Capitol Records. “Walk The Line” is a pulse thumping track about getting through the tough parts of life.

The track features underground rapper C4mula who knows all about hard times and walking the line. According to OC Weekly ” the list of near-death experiences he has racked up at the ripe old age of 29 is pretty astounding. Flipping over in cars in two separate accidents, the victim in a malicious hit and run outside of Malone’s in Santa Ana, having multiple guns pulled in his face, surviving a nearly lethal bout of alcoholism—all that barely covers half of it. ”

Nearly 20 years ago, Kottonmouth Kings’ popularity began when word spread about their unique and original style that came to be known as “Rip-Hop”. Over the years, this iconic group has built a huge fan base who feel inspired by their lifestyle, their music and their fashion. The group released their first full-length album on United Family Music Group, their new label founded by KMK front man, Brad “Daddy X” Xavier.

Celebrate The Release Of ‘Art Machine’ – Win An Exclusive Prize Pack!

Celebrate The Release Of ‘Art Machine’ – Win An Exclusive Prize Pack!

'Art Machine'

‘Art Machine’

The exciting new film, ‘Art Machine,’ hits VOD on February 6th, 2014. Directed by Doug Karr the film stars Joseph Cross (Lincoln), Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl), and Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy). Get the lowdown on the film below and learn how to win an exclusive prize pack from Icon Vs. Icon!

Synopsis: At age six, child prodigy painter Declan Truss (Joseph Cross) was propelled into the art world as a rare marvel, but by seventeen, the tightrope of notoriety is catching up with him. Declan seeks inspiration as the immense pressures of an impending coming-of-age exhibition loom. His world explodes when he stumbles on a commune of rebellious freethinkers through an incendiary rooftop meeting with pyrotechnic outsider artist, Cassandra Moon (Jessica Szohr). Declan reaches beyond painting to wild experimentation, quickly spinning out of control. As he becomes consumed by his mania, he begins to regard his mother (Joey Lauren Adams) as part of a system that’s keeping him down, and magnetically rallies the rebels to take part in his progressively subversive art exhibition–one that will ultimately shock and destroy.

Set against the backdrop of Brooklyn’s vibrant art and music scene, Art Machine is a dark comedy about the tenuous relationship between art and commerce, the fine line between creative genius and clinical mania, and the damaging effects of fame.

THE PRIZE:
One winners will be chosen from the entries. The winner will receive:
(1) Poster signed by the writers, director, producers and star Joseph Cross
(1) Special limited edition Art Machine T-shirt signed by the director
