This adorable tiny record maker lets you cut your own 5-inch vinyl singles

Vinyl has been coming back for the last few years, but unlike MP3s, CDs, or even cassette tapes (also coming back), records aren’t easy to record on your own. This tiny toy record maker makes it easy, though you probably shouldn’t expect that famous vinyl sound quality. The Easy Record Maker was created by designer Yuri Suzuki, who has been itching to do something like this for years. “This idea has been my dream machine since I was teenager,” Suzuki told Dezeen. Digital media are easy to copy, ...

It’s Culture Time With Henry Rollins

If you haven’t seen Henry Rollins do one of his live spoken word shows (read: borderline stand-up) or, more recently, his photo slideshow presentation, then you might not know what a bastion of funny-as-hell erudition he is. Take a moment to enjoy these two entries from Funny or Die. First, he gets shirtless with the Shirtless Painter for a discussion about…damn near everything. Then, he deconstructs Oh, The Places You’ll Go! in a manner that is probably different from any other way you’ve ...

March linkfest

This month’s book recommendation is I Like to Watch (2019), by the Pulitzer Prize-winning television critic Emily Nussbaum. The book collects a decade’s worth of Nussbaum’s reviews and essays for the New Yorker and other publications, including one written especially for the book. Nussbaum is such a good writer that she made me care about shows that hadn’t appealed to me (I’ve watched exactly one episode each, for example, of “The Sopranos,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and “Lost”). And she made...

Talent, you’re born with. Creativity, you can grow yourself.

Creativity, it is said, is intelligence having fun. It's the ability to generate ideas, solutions or insights that are strikingly original, and yet feasible: in cognitive terms, a compelling creative idea doesn't break down if one were to systematically tease apart its logic. At the same time, it weaves together concepts that were never before part of the same fabric. A decade ago, a team of psychologists from the Netherlands proposed the 'dual pathway to creativity model', suggesting that creat...

"Japanese Artist Has Drawn Every Meal He’s Eaten for 32 Years: Behold the Delicious Illustrations of Itsuo Kobayashi"

Image and text from Open Culture, 3/24/2020. Since the 1980s, Itsuo Kobayashi has drawn a picture of every single meal he eats. However notable we find this practice now, it would surely have struck us as downright eccentric back then. Kobayashi began drawing his food before the arrival of inexpensive digital cameras and cellphones, and well before the smartphone combined the two into the single package we now keep close at hand. We all know people who take camera-phone pictures of their meals...

A Theory Of Multiple Disasters At Once?

If an earthquake now hits India or Iran, like in 2001 and 2003, respectively, killing over 20,000 people in each country—or if we witness a repeat of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina in the US or 2011’s tsunami in Japan—will the world respond? Would the world wish to respond? Currently, health systems and social services are stretched to their breaking points. – Nautilus

American Alliance Of Museums Asks Congress For $4 Billion In Aid

The letter notes that museums annually contribute $50 billion to the US economy, generate $12 billion in local, state, and federal tax, along with supporting 726,000 jobs, expressing worry that great losses in the cultural sector will displace thousands of workers and act as a blow to the greater economy. – Hyperallergic

US Movie Theatres Want To Stay Open During Virus Measures

Almost all cinemas in China — the world’s second-largest moviegoing market behind North America — went dark more than a month ago because of the virus, while all of Italy is now quarantined.

New Interest In Iranian Art, Partly Because So Many Artists Are Living In Exile

Artists who fled the 1979 revolution with their families – especially if they were young – are seeing a renewed interest in their work from British and US buyers. But there’s “a growing gap between artists of the diaspora and those living in Iran, where economic hardship, sanctions and a collapsing currency mean that artists are unable to buy colors or canvases, or to have their work exhibited by Tehran-based gallerists at international fairs.” – The New York Times

The US Healthcare System Sucks: A Comic

No, that’s not the title Dustin Harbin gave his comic, published by the New York Times last August; he (or they) called it “The Shame of Crowdfunding Health Care”. But it’s the same thing, really. This is a late mention — although you can still donate to the GoFundMe for his medical costs — but I want to capture it for posterity. In short, Harbin had a bicycle crash and landed on his face, which required significant repair work to [...]

The Women Making Simulated Sex Safer For Actors

Picture doing this job: “Alicia Rodis walks onto set in New York with a mission: to oversee the shooting of a very complex – and daring – group sex scene for a TV series on a major US network. She’s there to make sure the director observes the intimacy boundaries set by each of the 30 actors taking part. She keeps track of the conditions of their consent on a big spreadsheet, to make sure everyone is comfortable when the camera rolls.” – BBC

What The Likely To Spread Festival Cancellations Mean For Movie And Music Makers

As festivals in the US, France, Italy and elsewhere cancel because of fears of COVID-19, producers struggle to stay positive. Kelly Oxford, whose movie Pink Skies Ahead was supposed to premiere on opening night of SXSW, wrote, “While I’m devastated at losing this world premiere at a festival I love, I’m happy that the health of others is still more valuable than anything and we are protecting each other.” – CBC

Photographer Jeannette Montgomery Barron’s “Artist Portraits from the 80’s” at Patrick Parrish Gallery

Amidst all the work of Basquiat, Warhol, Haring and their ilk, gallery-goers will still struggle to find women represented. Fascinating then, and valuable, is the exhibition Artist Portraits from …

Eco-friendly spiritual living at Holy Wisdom Monastery

A basket of bread comes around, and the person next to me removes a chunk, holds it up and says, “Bread of life.” I accept it and do the same for the person on my other side. It’s the first time I’ve ever attended a religious service so egalitarian that all participants are assumed qualified to give each other communion. Earlier, the part of the service where folks exchanged the sign of peace seemed to go on forever; instead of a restrained handshake with their nearest neighbors, people were wal...
