Nowadays you can watch poker tournaments on television, and because of this going to a casino seems much more casual than in comparison to the Hollywood portrayals of glamorous women and serious men with sharp suits. While it is certainly true that you can get away with dressing smart casual...
We were upset by The Newsroom episode two weeks ago that had a secondary plot line about Troy Davis‘s institutionalized killing by the the State of Georgia in 2011 — he was in all likelihood innocent.

Little did we know that we were in for a double whammy on the death penalty issue within a week. Those of us who also follow AMC’s The Killing were hoping against hope that Peter Sarsgaard’s character, Ray Seward, would get a last-minute reprieve
We’re adding a new regular feature to the PFC site, a mixed salad of items we’ve mined from various sources, namely our friends and likes and contacts who have pilfered them from their friends and likes and contacts.

There can be no greater incidental marketing boost for a specialty theatrical release like Zal Batmanglij’s The East than the global surge of righteous rage against evil food giant Monsanto and the release this weekend of the WikiLeaks documentary We Steal Secrets, which apparently portrays Julian Assange rather unfavorably at times (as I’ve parodied in another post, I think he’s hilarious).

We’re not huge fans of Marc Jacobs because in our opinion he isn’t so much a great designer as a showman for shmatas, and yet he enjoys the status of a great designer, and that’s annoying.
The more videos that are added to Sigur Rós‘ Valtari Mystery Film Experiment, their on-going collaboration with filmmakers and artists, the deeper our appreciation for the esoteric Icelandic wailers.
Filmed content is what we love best to create at PFC, so when a clever viral vid comes out that not only has everyone talking, but sparks controversy, we’re all over it.
