Eternal Sunshine is a movie about unexpected influence — about how the people in our lives are inescapably parts of who we are, for the better even when we think it’s for the worse. The score has had the same kind of effect across music: it, unexpectedly, has become a persistent part of our modern musical DNA. Brion’s pieces hold such emotional weight because he composes around story; he considers himself to be one of the most collaborative film scorers in the business. He doesn’t hole up in a studio and impatiently wait for feedback from his directors — he composes on set and in the drafting room while the film evolves before his eyes.

5 Uncomfortable Truths About Rape on College Campuses

#5. Doing the Right Thing Will Hurt the Colleges

Rape reports going up is actually a good thing. Feel free to quote me on that. The reason an increase in rape reports is a sign that things are getting better is because it’s actually getting reported. Sexual assault is one of the most underreported crimes in the world, with only 40 percent of cases ever going beyond private conversation, and 1 in 5 women have been sexually assaulted — a number that’s always seemed a little lower than what’s real to me, frankly, but that’s just speaking from anecdotal evidence. So as these reports go up, they’re actually trending toward reflecting the actual amount of sexual assaults that happen. It’s roughly analogous to realizing your home has cockroaches: It’s a painful shock, but at least you now know to buy some bug poison.

One headline perfectly captures the U.S. media’s Israel problem

Cairo-based photojournalist Mosa’ab Elshamy caught this headline from the Monday edition of the Baltimore Sun that seems to capture Palestinian sympathizers’ frustration with mainstream media coverage of the ongoing conflict in Gaza. While Israeli combat fatalities are given up-front attention, Palestinian fatalities are brushed off as “others.”
