Fleetwood Mac's self-titled album put them on the map but it was 1977's Rumours that catapulted the band to rock legends. The record produced four Top 10 singles and has sold over 40 million copies. Many of the songs have stood the test of time and still sound just as good as they did 40 years ago. Using the single "Dreams," Nerdwriter compares the demo to the final version to breakdown the process behind creating one of their many masterpieces.
It's a remake of the Goldie Hawn-Kurt Russell romantic comedy, but with a twist — it's a spoiled rich playboy tormenting the woman he hired to clean his yacht.

Starring Anna Faris, Eva Longoria, and Eugenio Derbez, Overboard comes to theaters April 20, 2018.
The 19-69 brand was birthed in an effort to bottle counterculture movements from the past. Over the course of two years, the brand went through an exhaustive creative process with artisans in Scandinavia, France, and Italy before launching their fragrances in Paris. Each scent is inspired by an era, culture, or setting and the music and trends that help shape them and brought to life in the names, packaging, and the fragrances themselves.
Originally launched as a modification shop for Rolex hunting watches — hence the name — Pro Hunter now offers a full range of specialized, sought-after sport watches from the Geneva-based firm. Each timepiece from Pro Hunter starts life as a brand new Rolex with box and papers; no refurbs or restorations here. It is then carefully customized with DLC coatings and other modifications, with inspiration taken from noteworthy vintage Rolex models, but applied towards a goal of superior style, functionality, and exclusivity. Specifically, we're offering Stealth black-hued versions of the GMT-Master II, Daytona, Submariner Date, and Submariner Military. All Pro Hunter Rolex watches are accompanied by a 5 year warranty and exceptional service directly from Pro Hunter.
America will not have to wait again. Dave Chappelle is closing out 2017 with not one, but two stand-up specials.

There are two types of Santas in this world: the creepy mall ones and the warm, jolly Saint Nicks. The later probably spent some time at The Charles W. Howard Santa School. For over 80 years, the Michigan intuition has been graduating authentic Kris Kringles with their lessons in beard grooming, caroling, and even child psychology. Great Big Story goes inside the classroom with 200 aspiring Santas to see what it takes to be the man with the bag.
Inspired by one of the most iconic military timepieces ever created, the Pilot Pioneer is a reinterpretation with real character. The mechanical hand-wound watch takes cues from the legendary Hamilton W10, a watch produced for the British Royal Air Force in 1973 and carries with it the form and function that made it memorable. Each timepiece features a black textured dial that's as easy to read as it was for pilots in the 70's, with luminous sword hands and numerals. It also has a sleek vintage-inspired case that integrates seamlessly into the lugs for added comfort. The new release also adds hardened mineral crystal with double anti-reflective coating for an extra layer of toughness. The Pilot Pioneer is powered by the H-50 hand-winding movement with 80 hours of power reserve and is finished with your choice of a gray textile or brown leather NATO strap.

To kick off the launch of Uncrate Issue 05 and the return of our favorite not-smartphone, the Punkt MP02, we've partnered with Punkt, Grand Classics, and Mark Ronson to host a VIP screening of 1983's The King of Comedy, staring Robert De Niro. Personally selected by Mark Ronson, the film is a timely choice given its direct influence on this month's release of Joker, and as De Niro also appears in Joker as homage to his character in The King of Comedy. On October 16th at the Public Arts venue, at New York's Public Hotel, a select group of guests and friends of Mark Ronson, Punkt, Grand Classics, and Uncrate gathered for the screening and cocktails. Punkt, maker's of minimalist technology, chose to partner with Grand Classics on this screening due the increasingly frustrating effect of smartphones on the film community. Often used to snap pictures that leak a film's plot details well before release, smartphones have become a drag on sets around the world. Punkt's MP02 phone, a camera-less work of art, fixes not only this issue but allows anyone to disconnect from the distracting while remaining connected via a good old fashioned phone call or basic text message. Animoji's need not apply.
Rogue One gave us a taste of what building a galactic superweapon would look like in space. Designer Isaac continues the sequence to visualize the full construction of the Death Star. He sped it up the process with time-lapse and finished it off with an original score written by his brother Ben.
Carol Connors has god records, dated Elvis, and written lyrics for many pop songs. But she gets her inspiration from the same place we all do — while in the shower. Carol tells the story of writing the theme from Rocky and making it one of the greatest films ever.
