Because people are serious about  this whole “Normcore” thing, the Gap has released their latest ads for their Dress Normal campaign directed by DiC fav David Fincher. Shot in his signature smokey, black and white style, the four commercials feature fashionable, young white models making out and dancing in Gap basics.


Not the most ground-breaking advertising, but we always appreciate Fincher’s work around here. And it’s certainly a change of pace from the yellow-tinted mayhem he usually produces.

For their Fall print ads, Gap tapped celebs like Angelica HustonMichael K. WilliamsBobby Cannavale and Mad Men”s Elisabeth Moss to sport some simple, but still a bit stylish looks.

Are you diggin’ these ads?  It should also be noted that Fincher’s new film, “Gone Girl”, starring Ben Affleck is set to open October 3rd. So there’s that.

Trent Reznor Talks About Scoring David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’


Nine Inch Nails is currently touring through the UK, but Trent Reznor had some time to talk about working with David Fincher again for the upcoming adaptation of ‘Gone Girl.’ El Rez and Atticus Ross teamed up again to score the movie, which he described as “nasty.” Well, he would know.

During a stop in Finland, Reznor told  Entertainment Weekly that him and Ross had worked on the score off and on during the year, and hopes it will be ready before the film’s release in the Fall.

I’ve seen the film a number of times, and we’re deep into the integration part of it. I would hope by the time we leave for Soundgarden that it’s smooth sailing. And if it isn’t, there will be a studio set up in every hotel room until it is.”

Rez is no stranger to recording on the road, much of 2007’s Year Zero was made during NIN’s With Teeth tour, but let’s hope it’s finished before the movie hits theaters in October. 

While no one was expecting this to be the happiest movie ever made, Trent let us in on what we can expect to experience later this year.

It’s a much darker film than I was expecting. The book is not exactly uplifting or happy, but it’s a nasty film.”

I feel like the same buzz was surrounding Girl with The Dragon Tattoo and I ended up not really caring about that by the time it was released. Gone Girl has Batfleck counting against it, but if it creeped Trent Reznor out in any way, then it might be worth watching. 


Justin Timberlake’s Video For ‘Suit and Tie’ Is Here. Oh.


No one loves JT more than I do. Okay, a crapload of y’all love him waaaay more than I do, but whatevs. I wish I weren’t so gotdamb BORED with his new music, though. I’m one of the dorks that will still throw some ‘bows to get some decent space on the dance floor as soon as the first beats from “Sexy Back” start to bump.  This new “Suit and Tie”, though? Honk-shooooo. Rat Pack? Mad Men? Misogyny? Check, check and CHECK.

Take a look some lazy and predictable crap, won’t you?


Also? I don’t appreciate how JT is pimping out my beloved and exclusive Tom Ford clothing. I swear to Baby Jesus…he BEST not turn the exquisite menswear line into the Hilfiger craze from back in the 90’s, because I just can’t with that shit.  Oh, AND he got Dipped in Cream’s LovermanDavid Fincher to direct this mess?  Ugh.


Is that JT’s head??

If only Jay-Z cried, “what’s in the box????” at the end of this clip.


Maybe I went too far on this…but still. I expected much more from JT after all these years, didn’t you? Just another reason we’re all blessed with the return of Bowie next month.
