Exit Lines: “Cyrano”

Peter Dinklage, relieved of his Game of Thrones duties, should make an excellent Cyrano de Bergerac, the dashing if proboscis-challenged hero of Edmund Rostand’s 19th-century classic. And The National, hitmakers in the realms of roots rock and alt-country, should be able to pull off a musical.

There’s a simple joy in the way this wallet/card-holder opens up like an accordion!

Rather appropriately named the Ta-Da!, this card-holder from hardgraft is all about joyous fanfare! Constructed around a simple idea with simple materials, the Ta-Da!’s design is a pretty neat example of the end-product being greater than the sum of its parts. It opens up much like an accordion-styled folder, revealing space for seven cards that you can slide right into its slim, simple leather slot-system. When you open the case out though, the cards fan out, equidistant from each other, making...

Ian Williams wins $100,000 2019 Giller Prize

“Reproduction” is set in Brampton and explores the nature of family — both blood relatives and chosen family. The writing, as reviewers expect from Williams, is beautiful — he’s written many volumes of poetry, and been shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry prize in 2013. This was his debut novel, proving he’s an equal master in both forms. – Toronto Star

This automotive concept embodies Lamborghini’s raging-bull spirit

Meet the Concepto X, a 3D exploration by Bulgaria-based Milen Ivanov. There isn’t much to really dissect this as far as the car goes, because honestly, it’s just a form-exercise, but it’s a pretty neat form exercise that captures Lamborghini’s ‘essenza’ if you will. Take a second to cover the Lamborghini logo with your thumb and it still looks undeniably Lambo-ish. Here are a couple of reasons how Ivanov managed to do it.First off, edgy, chiseled exteriors and an interplay of yellow with black t...

Today’s Portraits “See” Their Subjects In A Non-Traditional Way

Phil Kennicott: “The work done by these contemporary portraits is more fundamental. They are about seeing other people, rather than saving them. We are challenged simply to accept their existence as part of our world, no lesser or greater in importance than our own existence, which is the first and most daunting ethical challenge faced by every human being.” – Washington Post

Miranda recently chatted with Page Six about the project. 'I was a kid who wanted to be a filmmaker all my life,' Miranda explained. 'I was the kid who found it easier to have a camcorder on my arm than engage with people my age,' he said. 'So when I watched 'Rent' and there's a character who's always spinning a camera, and at one point, another character goes, 'You just film us because you're scared of connecting' ... I went gestures to looking uncomfortable, in the last row of Nederlander Thea...

How Margaret Atwood Became A Global Superstar

It’s remarkable that Atwood, who turned eighty in November, has reached this crest after spending six decades writing into an ever-shifting cultural landscape. When she was starting out, writers, for the most part, didn’t get published in Canada. Canadian literature as a concept didn’t even exist. – The Walrus
