Pulp Fiction Colloquially, it used to be called the "needle drop"—when a Martin Scorsese or Quentin Tarantino picked a piece of preexisting music and laid it down under a dramatic scene, with seismic results. We've thumbed through our stacks of wax (i.e., Blu-ray collections) to collect cinema's most potent examples, allowing for iconic uses of classical music and jazz along with the expected pop hits.

Society has a strange fascination with Disney characters, so much so that many of us crave to see special renditions like this Vogue Princesses series. Of course, when one considers how much of a role these characters and movies played in our childhood years, it is no wonder that we encourage the nostalgic tendencies of these projects. Yet the Vogue Princesses art series also addresses our need for something new and exciting. Forget about innocent storylines and tired film sequels; artists like Dante Taylor give us a different perspective of these once-sweet-and-dainty damsels. The Vogue Princesses series shows them all grown up. From the naive Snow White to the the self-sacrificing Belle, these Vogue Princesses magazine covers give them all edgy looks, as though they have been seasoned by the fashion industry.

Tim Mantoani hopes to change that by taking portraits of famous photographers holding their most iconic or favorite photos in his new book Behind Photographs: Archiving Photographic Legends.

Thomas Pynchon: Edward is thrown from a on a boat on a river in Germany, midway through an orgy. Bella was on board. Through a series of surreal dreams, detours throughout alternative histories of Europe and chance encounters with psychics, doctors, soldiers, physicists and a giant adenoid - each of whom entertain complex theories of their own and our existence that may or may not pertain to Bella's whereabouts - he discovers a covert intelligence group known as W.E.A.R.W.O.L.F.
