Watch Kanye West perform his new track Wolves at SNL 40

Only days after debuting his new track “Wolves” at New York Fashion Week, Kanye West performed the song during Sunday night’s SNL 40 celebration, marking the first time he performed the track live. The stripped-down performance came after he laid flat on his back onstage to sing “Jesus Walks” and later his other new single “Only One.” Singer Sia and fellow Chicago rapper Vic Mensa joined him onstage during the song.

There was plenty of debate during and after the set as to whether or not the performance was inspired or just bizarre, especially as compared to the more straightforward acts of the night like Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, and even Miley Cyrus. Whatever the audience’s opinion, there was really nothing like it all night.

Watch the first teaser for Guillermo del Toro’s gothic thriller Crimson Peak

Guillermo del Toro plans on dragging audiences kicking and screaming into his Victorian nightmares this fall with his new thriller Crimson Peak. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska, the film follows a young author swept up in her new husband’s mysterious, supernatural past. Judging from this first look, the film has the polished, B-movie aesthetic del Toro has been cultivating for the last several years. Here, the cast glides through a house that looks like a haunted doll house, and the film certainly looks like it honors the “grand dames” of the haunted house genre already. Crimson Peak will hit theaters on October 16th.

Live: watch the launch of Europe’s experimental and wingless spaceplane

The European Space Agency (ESA) is preparing to launch its next-generation spaceplane, known as the Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle or IXV. The five-meter-long, two-tonne vehicle will be launched on a Vega rocket to a height of 450 kilometres before descending for re-entry in the Pacific Ocean. The crewless mission will take no longer than 100 minutes but is intended to test, among other things, the craft’s protective thermal shells and its multi-stage parachutes. Flotation balloons will be deployed when it hits the ocean to stop it from sinking.

Information gathered from the launch and descent of the IXV will be used to develop future space programs — anything from reusable rockets to successors to the US Shuttle program. However,…

Watch Jon Stewart’s very first Daily Show episode

The news broke earlier this evening, with little warning: Jon Stewart will be stepping down from The Daily Show later this year. He’s been such an integral part of the media landscape, it’s almost hard to remember there was a time when the comedian wasn’t on our TVs every night, but it’s true. At one point, Craig Kilborn was the host of The Daily Show, but that all changed on January 11th, 1999 when Stewart’s first episode aired.

Below you can watch clips from that episode so you can see where it all started. And while his hair may be a different color and the set design changed, one thing’s for certain: Stewart knew what to do with The Daily Show from the very beginning.

Watch the first trailer for NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Comptonthe upcoming film based on the rise of NWA, is due out this summer, so it’s high time we saw a trailer. In the film’s first full-length spot, we’re first treated to an introduction featuring Ice Cube and hip-hop’s first billionaire Dr. Dre, rolling around Compton as they reminisce on their formative years there and the talent (like The Game and Kendrick Lamar) that has come up in the years since. From there, we’re thrown back into the gritty mid-80s, amidst the drugs and violence that helped bring Ice Cube, Dre, Eazy E, MC Ren, and DJ Yella together. As NWA, they pioneered gangsta rap, and remain one of the most important groups in rap history.

Straight Outta Compton started filming last summer after a long…

Watch this supercut showing Quentin Tarantino’s stylish use of sound

Quentin Tarantino is well known for making visual homages to the film styles he loves the most, particularly spaghetti westerns, martial arts epics, and ’70s blaxploitation films. Part of that process means paying particular attention to sound design, capturing every swoosh and clang in just the right way. By now, Tarantino’s made an art of using sound and visual flourishes to accentuate his scenes. So, in “Hearing Tarantino“, Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney decided to create a supercut of some of the director’s most interesting use of sound in his films.

If you pay attention, you’ll notice it’s not just sound that’s important here. When the action is high, close-ups, zooms, and pans are the scenes that get the really gripping sound…
