11 ways to be more self-sufficient in the new year

Self-sufficient living is all about providing for your own needs— and the needs of your household— without resources or help from the outside. To become more self-sufficient, you need knowledge and skills, plus motivation and a spirit of independence. The reasons for living a self-sufficient lifestyle can be political, social or personal, but whatever the motivation may be, learning how to become self-sufficient can offer a feeling of security, even in the event of a disaster. There isn’t a han...

Fascinatin' Rhythm

When I wrote my history book, Strike Up the Band, I had two primary agendas. One was to reject the premise of all other musical theatre history books, that the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical was the pinnacle of the art form. It wasn't. The other agenda was to include in the story of our art form all the people of color, the women, the people with disabilities who helped shape the American musical theatre but get left out of almost all history books. I hope I did a decent job of re-balancing our ...

The Food Cart for Home Has Landed

The ‘Live, Cook, Chill’ concept wants you to do more living and chilling than cooking. Designed with modern living (and micro-living spaces) in mind, it packs a week’s worth of meals into one compact unit than you can keep refilling. With prepared meal delivery being all the rage right now, it takes things to the next level, utilizing a refrigerator and steam reheating system in one. Simply stack in your prepped meals and set it to warm when you’re ready. It’s like airplane food for your home or...

How to host a zero-waste Thanksgiving dinner

Hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for friends and family can be an overwhelming task. When you are providing a meal for a group of people, it is tempting to opt for things like pre-cut fruits and veggies, snack portions of cheese, store-bought pie and other modern conveniences to make it easier to get through the day. However, using these items can come at a price. When you buy things that are packaged in single-use plastic, it wreaks havoc on the environment. This year, instead of just focusing on...

Matthew Cook (update 2018)

Matthew (Matt) Cook is a UK artist and illustrator who I have featured previously (and here), mostly in reference to his fascinating role as a reportage illustrator in the middle-east war zones. In this post, I’d like to focus instead on his more recent travel sketches and paintings. Most of these are done in a watercolor style that is simultaneously free and strongly drawn, and would be of particular interest to those who enjoy “urban sketching”. Cook’s wonderful handling of brick, stone and...

Apple Chicago: Don’t Call It a Store, It’s a Town Square

As shopping increasingly becomes a retail experience, and online commerce challenges in-store, brands are jockeying to elevate the customer journey. Few brands are setting the bar as high as Apple, which is pioneering a new retail model that aims to transform the notion of what a “store” means in 2017 (and beyond). Apple, Interbrand’s reigning “Best Global Brand,” has passed 500 retail stores worldwide, generating more than $42 billion in revenue. In 2013 hired Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts as S...

What we know about the iPhone 8

Let’s do a rumor recap for the iPhone 8. Unlike some people speculated, it obviously isn’t transparent. It still has no headphone jack (sad-face), and like we’re all expecting, Apple has ditched the TouchID on the phone because they’re having major issues with engineering it into the screen. It seems like a rather illogical thing to do, especially considering how they kickstarted the touch-authentication movement (buying the touch panel company before Motorola could… and that’s why Motorola phon...
