While we may marvel at James Franco's ability to do twenty thousand things at once, Steven Soderbergh may have him beat. Though he may have "retired" from making movies, Soderbergh still has a TV show coming up ("The Knick"), producing gigs, Broadway productions and more all in various states—not to mention running his site Extension 765—so we have no idea how he still has time to watch, read and listen to music at such a prolific rate. Because seriously, just check out his methodical list of everything he watched, read and listened to (or at least bought on vinyl) in 2013.

Gravity, Cuaron
It seems that every promotional tour these days has to feature a stop at the internet’s front page. Best Director nominee Alfonso Cuarón was the latest to visit Reddit for an AMA where the “Gravity” helmer was given the opportunity to respond to the scientific community’s reactions to his films, give his take on the future of the industry and tease a dark alternate ending to the Best Picture nominee.

Oscar voting kicks off on Friday, and Warner Bros. really want that Best Song trophy. With "The Moon Song" EP hitting digital outlets this week, and Karen O playing an Oscar nominees party, the awareness campaign for the song continues.

Her, Joaquin Phoenix
While the box office results for "Her" have been disappointing (only $22 million to date), Warner Bros. still believes in the movie, and so too does the industry. Spike Jonze is already seen as a frontrunner for Best Original Screenplay, and while Best Song is largely seen as going to "Frozen," a push is being made for Karen O's sweet and minimal "The Moon Song."

While an official soundtrack release for "Her" doesn't seem like it's going to happen anytime soon—Spike Jonze recently said that the Oscar-nominated score by Arcade Fire might not see a retail shelf—the Oscar-nominated song is going to be available to own. Karen O's lovely, low key "The Moon Song" is getting an EP release, with a pretty sweet little extra.

We're a month away from the Oscars—aka the Cinephile Super Bowl—and the crystal ball continues to get a bit clearer with precursor awards. And last night, both the writers and cinematographers of the industry honored their own.

Ever since the talent behind the soundtrack to Spike Jonze’s “Her” was first announced—Arcade Fire, Owen Pallett, and Karen O—an intense clamor and anticipation sprung up for the end result. And true to predictions it is great, a melancholic and warm supplement to the “Adaptation” director’s latest film. But even as a full stream of Arcade Fire’s score (and Karen O’s song) last week showed promise for a proper release soon, a new Q&A with Jonze paints a much more uncertain picture.

Me, Jonah Hill, SNL Spoof
The spoofs keeping rolling in for "Her," with the man/machine romance sparking some fun takes on the movie. So far, we've seen what Samantha sounds like as voiced by Philip Seymour Hoffman, as well as watched the parody sequel, "Him." Now comes yet another riff on the movie entitled, "Me."

It would seem that even the prestige of 5 Oscar nominations can't keep people from messing with Spike Jonze's "Her." We've already seen one parody come along with "Him," a take on the concept from the female perspective, and now the trailer has been recut with an interesting twist.

This time of year must bring a shudder of impending stress down Joaquin Phoenix’s spine, as the actor shifts from turning in great performances to being asked about them nonstop for awards consideration. His work in Spike Jonze’s “Her” sadly failed to score an Oscar nomination in a crowded year (the film itself received five nods overall including Best Picture), but that hasn’t stopped Phoenix from giving an rare, but welcome, extended interview covering his last few films, his acting process, and much more.
