Anderson Cooper Visits Caligula’s Pleasure Garden

A gay silver-fox fantasy come to life? Nope, sorry. In 2006, workers excavating for an underground parking garage found what archaeologists determined was a garden designed for the notorious young emperor, and they’ve been working there ever since. 60 Minutes sent Cooper to have a look. – CBS News

Mondo Releases Steamy ‘The Handmaiden’ Poster From J.A.W. Cooper

Park Chan-wook‘s modern masterpiece The Handmaiden gets a properly steamy poster from Mondo, courtesy of artist J.A.W. Cooper. And by steamy, we mean literally — the poster depicts the famous bathtub scene from the film. But also, in the descriptive sense, because oh boy was Park’s 2016 erotic thriller something else. It’s only fitting that The Handmaiden, a dizzyingly seductive thriller from Oldboy director Park Chan-wook, would get an equally sensual poster from artist J.A.W. Cooper, which...

Harpsichordist Kenneth Cooper, 79

Mr. Cooper’s adventurousness went hand in hand with scrupulous musicianship and articulate technique. He was a sensitive partner in chamber works, as in his recording, with Mr. Ma, of Bach’s sonatas for viola da gamba (played on the cello) and harpsichord. – The New York Times

Career Moves In 2020: Storming TikTok, Freaking Out The President, Hosting Late-Night, Getting A Netflix Special

Sarah Cooper is a UX engineer who, during lockdown, decided to take advantage of TikTok and the United States president’s, er, unique response to the pandemic, earning her a huge response and putting her career as a comedian into a unique space. “The world now has more avenues for #content than ever before. Traditional television shows and films have been massively sidelined by Covid-19 lockdowns—and while we all miss shows like Euphoria and the usual summer blockbusters, a lot of other forms o...

Kathryn Cooper’s Wildlife Movement Photography

Amazing wildlife photography by Kathryn Cooper reveals the brushwork of birds and their flocks through sky, hidden by the quickness of the human eye. “Staple Newk” by Kathryn Cooper. Ever since Eadweard Muybridge’s pioneering photography of animal locomotion in 01877 and 01878 (including the notorious “horse shot by pistol” frames from an era less concerned with animal experiments), the trend has been to unpack our lived experience of movement into serial, successive frames. The m...

When Salvador Dalí Met Alice Cooper & Turned Him into a Hologram: The Meeting of Two Kings of Camp (1973)

Kings of camp Alice Cooper and Salvador Dalí made a natural pair when they met in New York City in April of 1973. "A mind-melding of sorts took place," writes Super Rad Now. "Over the course of about two weeks" Cooper and Dalí "ate together, drank together, and basked in the glow of each other's exceptional uniqueness." Then Dalí decided to turn Cooper into a hologram, the First Cylindric Chromo-Hologram Portrait of Alice Cooper's Brain. How did this come about? It was only a matter of t...

Why This Font Is Everywhere: How Cooper Black Became Pop Culture’s Favorite Font

You know Times New Roman, you know Helvetica, you know Comic Sans — and though you may not realize it, you know Cooper Black as well. Just think of the "VOTE FOR PEDRO" shirt worn in Napoleon Dynamite (and in real life for years thereafter), or a few decades earlier, the cover of Pet Sounds. In fact, the history of Cooper Black extends well before the Beach Boys' mid-1960s masterpiece; to see and hear the full story, watch the Vox video above. It begins, as narrator Estelle Caswell expla...

Cooper & Thief’s Complex, Non-Traditional Wines

Using unconventional barrels, the brand crafts a niche product worth savoring Unlike more traditional winemakers, the team behind Lodi, California’s Cooper & Thief prove particularly fond of breaking conventions, all while employing centuries-old techniques. The wines they produce can still file under well-known categorical styles—Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Red Blend—but the spirit with which they produce wines could not be more different than conventional …

New e-snowmobiles bring eco tourism to the northern lights

Between Norway and the North Pole is Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago and one of the most rugged and northern inhabited areas. With an average January high of 9 degrees and 24 hours of darkness, you might not expect this to be a tourist hot-spot. But the northern lights are drawing bigger and bigger crowds through Svalbard’s dark winter. The trick is making sure that the roughly 75,000 annual visitors don’t overwhelm the environment and culture of the archipelago’s 2,583 year-round residents. O...

Bradley Cooper Talks About Music, Directing, And GaGa

“When Cooper talks about A Star Is Born being deeply personal, you can see why. It’s about art that crosses cultural lines, it’s about a love of music, and it’s about the conflict between art and fame, the way celebrity can box you in and interfere with artistic goals — like his desire to direct.” – Philadelphia Inquirer

10 Best Serif Fonts for Clean & Elegant Logo Design

For many designers, when it comes to designing a clean and elegant logo for a company, using a Serif font in their designs helps to add a little bit of flair & sophistication to the brand.

The Design Flaw of Boot Jacks, Part 2: Potential Solutions

Earlier we looked at the design flaw of boot jacks, which is that you must step on a muddied object with a bare sock.  Many of the comments made incorrect assumptions and were unhelpful; the most ridiculous suggestion was that doormats--which we of course own and use--will remove 100% of mud from the bottom of a boot. (Surprise: They don't.)Another unhelpful suggestion: Rinse the boots off each and every time. My wife and I live on a farm where it freezes overnight, yet gets warmer during the...

Former Sotheby’s Employee Donates Collection of Artist Postcards to British Museum

Former Sotheby’s auctioneer Jeremy Cooper has donated 1,000 artist postcards he has collected over the years to the British Museum.  “The more I looked, the more I discovered that it’s a field of unrecognized historical significance – it just seemed completely neglected,” Cooper says. “These postcards were made by artists as individual expressions, not just the reproduction of […]

Potato peels offer a sustainable alternative to traditional building materials

Many of the typical building materials used in construction — like medium-density fiberboard (MDF) — contain toxic materials and formaldehyde, plus they have a shockingly short lifespan and a negative environmental impact. But now there is a new option to these single-use materials — potato waste. London-based designers Rowan Minkley and Robert Nicoll as well as research scientist Greg Cooper have developed Chip[s] Board, which is a biodegradable alternative to MDF that is made from non-food-gr...

At Paula Cooper’s First Show 50 Years Ago You Could Have Bought A Carl Andre For $1,500

She was the first gallerist in Soho, at 96 Prince Street, way back in 1968 when that was a desolate area that had just recently been saved from having a highway bulldozed across it by Robert Moses. Donald Judd, who made the desk Cooper sits at to this day, bought an entire five-floor factory building at 101 Spring Street that same year for $68,000, a block south of her new gallery.

In Which Bradley Cooper Makes A Journalist Question All The Premises Behind Celebrity Profiles

Taffy Brodesser-Akner wrestles in print with the actor’s famous reluctance to discuss his personal life (after having wrestled with Cooper himself over it during the interview) — and comes to understand (after several thousand words) that “he was just telling me that I’m asking the wrong questions.”

The Pack Horse Chair Wants You to Focus On Analogue Activities (And Eat More Snacks)

Here's an interesting piece of furniture: Michael Cooper's Pack Horse chair not only features a built-in bookshelf, but it also has straps to hold down a blanket and side compartments to keep various objects in place. Even though books are pictured, I'm already contemplating which snacks I could fit around the sides. Bags of chips seem most viable, but I am also open to candy and cookies. You can even hide more snacks—maybe the ones you're more ashamed to be eating—in a hidden compartment und...

Me and My Girl - A Musical From Yesterday Comes Roaring To Life

 Reviewed by Judd Hollander In this world of message musicals and important themes, it’s nice to know that every so often a vehicle comes along whose only purpose is to offer a good time. The 1937 tuner Me and My Girl, which was recently resurrected for an engagement as part of the Encores! series at New York City Center , is such a work. With a storyline paper thin; musical numbers that have often have nothing to do with advancing the plot; dusty jokes which were old when the mu...
