‘Not throwin’ away her shot!’ Whittier doctor parodies Hamilton to encourage vaccination

After a devastating year, a Whittier-area doctor wants to see everyone get vaccinated against the coronavirus — and she’s delivering the message with a pandemic-themed parody of Broadway’s “Hamilton” posted on YouTube. Armed with a selfie stick and her phone, Artesia resident Dr. Julie Borba was frustrated with peoples’ behavior during the pandemic, so she sat down to write some lyrics: I’m not throwin’ away my shot Hey yo, I’m not even foolin’ That I’m tired of home schoolin’ And I’m not t...

The Louvre’s Entire Collection Goes Online: View and Download 480,00 Works of Art

If you go to Paris, many will advise you, you must go to the Louvre; but then, if you go to Paris, as nearly as many will advise you, you must not go to the Louvre. Both recommendations, of course, had a great deal more relevance before the global coronavirus pandemic — at this point in which art- and travel-lovers would gladly endure the infamously tiring crowdedness and size of France’s most famous museum. But now they, and everyone else around the world, can view the Louve’s artworks online,...

Although Jean-Luc Godard’s A Bout de Souffle (aka Breathless) was not technically the first Nouvelle Vague film, it was the film’s revolutionary look and feel, and Godard’s exquisite sense of how to work the promotional machine, that caused it to reverberate around the world. A few years later, many other countries would be launching their own New Waves: Britain, Germa...

Hear the Beautiful Isolated Vocal Harmonies from the Beatles’ “Something”

It’s hard to say, since some of the lyrics purportedly written for her, like those in Harrison’s breakout “Something,” may have been for someone else, then diplomatically attributed to Boyd.
