WARNING: Spoilers Ahead

Orange Is The New Black (Netflix's most watched series with 12 Emmy Award nominations) is back after the heartbreaking ending in season 4. Beloved Poussey is accidently suffocated by a white guard during a protest. After her body is left on the floor for a day and a half, Taystee decides the prisoners of Litchfield have had enough. They incite a riot so their voices can be heard. In the startling finale, with tensions high, Daya grabs one of the guards guns and points it at them. We hear a gunshot. The screen goes black and we are left wondering who pulled the trigger?

Season 5 with 13 episodes will take course over a three-day period, following the aftermath of prison riots.

The New York Times named Chloë Sevigny “the coolest girl in the world” back in the 90s and she still lives up to that name today. In the early 90s Chloë caught the attention of Larry Clark and stared in his controversial film Kids. From there Chloë has gone on to star in both independent and big budget films. Her effortless style has turned her into a fashion icon and a muse to so many photographers like Terry Richardson, Mark Borthwick and Juergen Teller. She has gone on to be the face of Miu Miu and Chloe, started a fashion label with Opening Ceremony, and appeared in indie magazines like Purple and i-D. Her book titled Chloë Sevigny documents it all as though you’re flipping through her personal journal filled with over 200 photographs of casting fliers, polaroid’s, zines, pages from her daily planner.

From the Brooklyn based indie rockers Beach Fossils, their third album Somersault is a dreamy psychedelic trip. The album is their first since the release of 2013’s Clash and Truth. Somersault is perfect for hosting an evening dinner party on the beach as the sun sets.
