Exit Lines: “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical”

If Jersey Boys is the model for the pop biopic genre, then the West End import Tina: The Tina Turner Musical is the middle–another excuse, after The Cher Show and a jukebox full of others, for a soaring central performance swaddled in glitz and tinsel. Adrienne Warren is all that as Turner, but the show that surrounds her is as hoary and hokey as most of its predecessors, and as redundant as its title. (What other “Tina” is there?)  The R&B and rock goddess’ life has been packaged before, as the...

Chicago Architecture Biennial Examines How Design Shapes Urban Protest

It’s a study of human behavior. And it’s a study of the ways in which the architecture of public spaces is designed to control the ways humans move, perhaps by funneling people towards an exit or preventing mass gatherings. (Think: Hong Kong.) It also reveals the situations in which the human is no longer at the center, but becomes technology-adjacent. – Los Angeles Times

This custom modified 1977 Honda Gold Wing flaunts its Samurai inspiration

Perhaps some of the best motorbike customizers, and my personal favorites, Death Machines of London are back with an absolute stunner… a completely customized 1977 Honda Gold Wing heavily inspired by samurai warriors and their gear. Nicknamed the ‘Kenzo’, after Kenzo Tada, who in 1930 became the first Asian rider ever to compete at the Isle of Man TT, the custom motorcycle “is the result of traditional craft combined with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, and plenty of headaches. And cu...

Downloadable Plans for 3D-Printed Guns, Backed by Trump Administration, Blocked by Federal Judge

There's so much news of impeachment hearings out there, it was easy to miss this piece of State-Department-related news that has to do with digital fabrication. Specifically, 3D-printed guns. The story's a bit convoluted here, so stick with me: Sequence of Events - In 2013 Cody Wilson, a crypto-anarchist and staunch proponent of 3D-printed guns, posts plans for them online.- That same year the State Department, then under the Obama administration, sends him a takedown notice. Wilson complies.- I...

To Prove Electric Car Safety, German Organization DEKRA Runs Gnarly Crash Test

Due to a few highly-publicized incidents, there are people who are convinced that electric cars, due to those pesky lithium-ion batteries pose a greater fire risk than gasoline-powered ones. For the record, the NHTSA concluded in this 2017 report (PDF) that electric car fire risks "are anticipated to be somewhat comparable to or perhaps slightly less than those for gasoline or diesel vehicular fuels."Nevertheless, Germany road safety organization DEKRA, which conducts their own testing, submitte...

What’s It Like To Be An Audio Book Reader?

Reading books aloud might seem like an easy way to make money – you just sit there and read – “but I can assure you it isn’t. I narrated my own audiobook in 2014, an experience that I described at the time as being akin to an exorcism: three long days in a dark room, tripping through the minefield of my own words. All I could think was: If I’d known I was going to have to say this whole book out loud, I would have written a better one. Or maybe I wouldn’t have written one at all.” – Irish...

Dublin Is Booming Again. Alas, Making Art Is Again More Difficult

“We hear people saying that the boom is back but that doesn’t seem to be translating into a richer arts and cultural centre. Ireland has a really strange relationship with arts and culture. As a society, we love talking about it. We love owning it. But we don’t fund it very well. We have some of the lowest arts funding per capita in Europe.” – Irish Times

Marciano Foundation: The Museum That Wasn’t

“To put it bluntly, the Marciano Art Foundation was never a real museum. Yes, it had access to a collection—some 1,500 pieces acquired primarily by Maurice Marciano, including L.A.’s trendiest artists as well its most talented. Yes, it organised a big show every six months or so—installations by Jim Shaw, Olafur Eliasson, Ai Weiwei and, most recently, Donna Huanca. But it lacked the staffing and organisational structure that signal an ongoing commitment to core museum missions such...
