My Heart Is Like Wow!

The more we get to live inside this Be More Chill score, the more we discover its hidden gems.Por ejemplo...The vamp that opens the first number reappears throughout the score. It's a four-note figure and it's brilliant. At first when I heard it, it sounded slightly familiar. After a while I realized why.It's almost the same vamp as in the Little Mermaid song "Part of Your World." Disney's vamp is Bb - C - D - F. It outlines a Bb major chord, plus it adds the second degree of the scale for a li...

Cabaret Star Baby Jane Dexter Dead At 72

“[She] first gained acclaim in the 1970s, when she appeared in New York nightclubs as a bluesy singer with a powerful voice and presence. She dropped out of show business for a decade before returning to the stage in the 1990s, using elements from her personal life — her size, her experience of sexual assault and depression — to heighten the emotional intensity of her performances, which were often so intimate that they seemed to be exercises in group therapy.” – The Washington Post

Study estimates sea level rise two times worse than worst-case scenario

Sea level rise is a serious threat, but a new report argues that it may be far worse than even the current worst-case estimates. The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday, estimates that there is a 5 percent chance the sea level will rise between 2 feet and 7.8 feet within the next century. This is more than twice what was recently predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Although 5 percent might seem like a small probability, the r...

There’s A Whole New Crop Of South Asian-American Stand-Up Comedians Coming

“They’re finding strength in numbers that have swelled in the wake of new role models, mounting recurring group shows with names like Kutti Gang and Brown Privilege in New York, and Desi Comedy Festival [in California]. … (It’s also no small thing to have people like [Mindy] Kaling and [Hasan] Minhaj to point to when arguing with immigrant parents who may disapprove of even their adult offspring pursuing stand-up.)” – The Daily Beast

There Are Voices All Around

So why does the Squip choose Jeremy?We don't realize this right away, but it doesn't take long before we figure out Jeremy didn't really make any of these choices; he's been manipulated by the Squip the whole time -- even before he takes it!But what is it about Jeremy that makes him such a prime target? Well, we have to remember that Rich gets Squipped first, but clearly, Rich doesn't serve the Squip's agenda as well as Jeremy does. But why not Michael? Or Christine? Or the popular kids?Well, C...

Christine Osinski’s Photographs Of Staten Island’s Overlooked New Yorkers In 1980s

When Christine Osinski moved to Staten Island in the 1980s (the Manhattan loft was bought up by developers) she found the long-overlooked borough with a tough and rugged edge gave her a sense of liberation and escape from Manhattan. Her photographs give an insight into New York’s overlooked borough, the blue-collar heel to Manhattan’s white boot. “The people I photographed were all strangers... Source

Why ‘Game Of Thrones’ Has Been Good For British Theatre

Art-Washing: Museums Face The Taint Of Donor Money

“Gifts that are not in the public interest.” It is a pregnant, important phrase. Coming on the heels of similar decisions by the Tate Modern in London and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the spurning of Oxy-cash seems to reflect a growing awareness that gifts to the arts and other good causes are not only a way for ultra-wealthy people to scrub their consciences and reputations. Philanthropy can also be central to purchasing the immunity needed to profiteer at the expense of the ...

Mel Gibson Is Playing A Character Called ‘Rothchild’, And Folks On Social Media Aren’t Having It

In the movie in question, titled Rothchild and currently being pitched to buyers at the Cannes marketplace, Gibson is to play the patriarch of an extremely rich New York family. The similarity to Rothschild, the name of a wealthy European Jewish family that has been the target of anti-Semitic invective for centuries, has (one might say) not gone unnoticed or unremarked-upon online, given Gibson’s history of (one might say) unfortunate utterances. – The Guardian

With three pockets on the outside and one on the interior, this garment is cut from a luxe herringbone fabric.

Textile artist Bisa Butler illustrates history by repurposing fabrics into portrait quilts

While the fashion industry continues to take a hit as one that contributes heavily to the pollution of the planet, one Brooklyn-based artist is focused on lessening that impact by repurposing fabrics into quilts filled with cultural and artistic significance. It may not seem like fabric and art directly intertwine, but they do when the artist creates a canvas from vintage and repurposed materials.
