13 Tales of the Weird

I love musical theatre more than anything else in the world. But I also really love horror. New Line has brought the two together on several occasions, with Night of the Living Dead, Sweeney Todd, The Rocky Horror Show, In the Blood, Lizzie, and The Zombies of Penzance. Depending on your definition, I might include on that list Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party, Love Kills, Sweet Smell of Success, and Assassins.Even before the pandemic hit, but especially now, I'm always looking for new writing pro...

Thank Goodness For Caremongering

Over decades and centuries, mutual aid has helped people pay rent, buy groceries, and acquire medicine; it has given workers something where there is so much nothing to be had, and it has given luckier people a way to help out in desperate times. So why weren’t we doing mutual aid before—everybody, all the time? Well, Black people were. – The Walrus

What Sources Will Historians Of The Future Use To Make Sense Of 2020?

A child today will be a historian of 2020 in the future. What sources will they turn to? How will they verify scattered memories? How will people tell the story of the tumultuous times that we’re living in today? 2020 may be a year for the history “books” but of course, the record we leave behind will be digital in manner. – The Conversation

How To Explain How New Yorkers Talk?

To an outsider, someone from, say, Toronto or Seattle or London, a conversation among New Yorkers may resemble a verbal wrestling match. Everyone seems to talk at once, butting in with questions and comments, being loud, rude and aggressive. Actually, according to the American linguist E J White, they’re just being nice. – Literary Review

How A Speech Coach Saved Janet Malcolm’s Bacon In Her Libel Trial

The first time that Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson’s lawsuit against Malcolm and The New Yorker went to court, she writes, the personal manner she and her colleagues at the magazine had cultivated turned out to be disastrous: the jury ruled against her, and it was amazing luck that they deadlocked on how much to award Masson and the judge declared a mistrial. So she went to see speech coach Sam Chwat, and she recounts here how the things he taught her changed everything the second time around. – The...

Why Does Time Seem To Speed Up As We Age?

To a ten-year-old child a year is a tenth of her existence, and thus feels like something of a stretch. For someone who’s twice her age a year is only a twentieth of the time they’ve already had, and by the time you get to 60, well, I’d say it doesn’t bear thinking about were it not for the fact that thinking about it is all you do once you get to a certain age … – The Critic

There’s One Country In The Americas Where An Indigenous Language Is Still In Constant Use

“Paraguayan Guaraní – a language descended from several indigenous tongues – remains one of the main languages of 70% of the country’s population. And unlike other widely spoken native tongues – such as Quechua, Aymara or the Mayan languages – it is overwhelmingly spoken by non-indigenous people.” – The Guardian

Could Changing Our Work Weeks Mitigate Layoffs?

One potential avenue to spare redundancies is a move to a four-day workweek. While the idea has been toyed with for decades, new and adaptable working situations ushered in by Covid-19 have sparked an entirely new conversation on the subject. So much so, in fact, that MPs in the UK are pushing for a four-day workweek to cut costs and mitigate redundancies. – Artnet

‘Patriotism Ain’t No One Song’ — A Classical Critic Considers America’s Anthems (Plural)

Michael Andor Brodeur looks at the NFL’s decision to add “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” to “The Star-Spangled Banner” before games, and ponders other anthems (because that’s what they are) ranging from “God Bless America” to “This Land Is Your Land” to “The Times They Are A-Changin'” to “Born in the U.S.A.” (and maybe even “Strange Fruit”). “However varied these many musical visions of patriotism may be, they share common concerns: struggle, tension, transition, uncertainty, progress.

Art by Julie Maren

Amy and I have been collecting art since we first got together in 1990. My mom, Cecelia Feld, is an artist, and I have been around contemporary art my entire life.

Burmese roofed turtle is rescued from extinction

The Burmese roofed turtle has been saved from the brink of extinction. The turtle had not been seen for over 20 years, leading many conservationists to assume that it was extinct. But in 2001, one Burmese roofed turtle was spotted in markets in Myanmar, sparking interest among scientists. From this point forward, efforts to save the endangered species were put in place by scientists in collaboration with the government of Myanmar. The efforts have paid off, with nearly 1,000 of these turtles exi...
