Runway Looks for Less: Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2017

A bold and eclectic collection that's perfect for both American Horror Story's Myrtle Snow - and you! Credit: American Horror Story on FX The Balenciaga Fall 2017 RTW collection is full of structured shapes, bold colors and patterns and - to my delight - colored tights. Despite now dressing pretty much exclusively in black, colored tights remind me of my childhood spent wearing yellow and orange. While they aren't my style, I love when others wear them, because nothing brightens a day like see...

3 Spring Trends that Work for Work

And how to wear them, duh. After months and months of chunky sweaters, clunky boots, and bulky coats, spring fashion can be just as refreshing as sunny weather and warm rains. But if you work in an office, it can be hard to make that translation to your 9 to 5 wardrobe - especially if you're an intern or fresh out of college and you're still a newbie at dressing for work. Just look at the reigning trends on the runways right now - shoulder cutouts, off-the shoulder tops, and whatever this is. P...

Easter Decorations – do you make your own?

Easter is my favorite time of the year and I spend a lot of time making my own decorations. How about you, do you make your own Easter decorations? Easter is such a fun time of the year. It is just full of color and lots of flowers. And of course, there are bunnies. My Easter decorations always have lots of bunnies and I must admit that I normally go bunny mad around Easter. By the end of Easter, my family is always fed up with bunnies and looking forward to something other decorations. Anyway, ...

We Found the Perfect Mascara for Your Current Mood

Six of them, to be exact. Photo Credit - Unsplash My makeup look, whether consciously or unconsciously done, always seems to be influenced by my mood. When I'm feeling happy, I'll gravitate towards brighter colors. If I'm feeling upset or mad, you can bet I'll be breaking out those darker, winter-like shades to feed my inner vampire.Regardless of the reason, makeup can be a great tool for amplifying your current mood, or for helping you pull yourself out of a bad one.

Great Filmmakers Offer Advice to Young Directors: Tarantino, Herzog, Coppola, Scorsese, Anderson, Fellini & More

One-to-one relationships do not exist between the medieval European Guild system and contemporary labor unions or protectionist rackets…. Nevertheless, guilds were very much like both those things in some ways. They were also vocational schools, where young aspiring artisans could, with the right skills and connections, apprentice themselves to master craftsmen, hope to receive decent training, and look forward to becoming guild masters themselves should they persist. Few organizatio...

The Philosophy, Storytelling & Visual Creativity of Ghost in the Shell, the Acclaimed Anime Film, Explained in Video Essays

“Ghost in the Shell is not in any sense an animated film for children,” wrote Roger Ebert twenty years ago. “Filled with sex, violence and nudity (although all rather stylized), it’s another example of anime, animation from Japan aimed at adults.” Now, when no critic any longer needs to explain the term anime to Western readers, we look back on Ghost in the Shell (1995) as one of the true masterpieces among Japanese animated feature films, mature not just in its content but in its fo...

Watch 450 NPR Tiny Desk Concerts: Intimate Performances from The Pixies, Adele, Wilco, Yo-Yo Ma & Many More

In times past, happening upon just the right radio station, record store, or tape trading community were some of the few serendipitous ways of discovering new music. And in those days, one faithful curator of innovative new sounds, BBC DJ John Peel, never disappointed. Because of a law limiting the amount of recorded music radio could play, his name became synonymous with the hundreds of intimate performances punk, new wave, reggae, and other bands recorded live in his studio. While ...

Jim Henson’s Commercials for Wilkins Coffee: 15 Twisted Minutes of Muppet Coffee Ads (1957-1961)

Drink our coffee. Or else. That’s the message of these curiously sadistic TV commercials produced by Jim Henson between 1957 and 1961. Henson made 179 ten-second spots for Wilkins Coffee, a regional company with distribution in the Baltimore-Washington D.C. market, according to the Muppets Wiki: “The local stations only had ten seconds for station identification, so the Muppet commercials had to be lightning-fast–essentially, eight seconds for the commercial pitch and a two-second sh...

Hieronymus Bosch Figurines: Collect Surreal Characters from Bosch’s Paintings & Put Them on Your Bookshelf

Few painters have created as rich a world as Hieronymus Bosch did in The Garden of Earthly Delights. The late 15th- or early 16th-century triptych, which depicts the creation of man, the licentious frolicking of all creatures on a paradisiacal Earth, and the subsequent fall into damnation, draws a scrutiny — and causes an amusement — as intense as ever. As we’ve previously featured here on Open Culture, you can now take a virtual tour of the painting (there’s even an app for it), see it brough...

Discover Ray Bradbury & Kurt Vonnegut’s 1990s TV Shows: The Ray Bradbury Theater and Welcome to the Monkey House

There has always been good television. Even Kurt Vonnegut, wittiest of curmudgeons, had to agree in 1991 when he was interviewed in The Cable Guide for his own contribution to the medium, an adaptation of his book of stories, Welcome to the Monkey House on Showtime. Vonnegut did not like television, and compared it to thalidomide. “We don’t know what the side effects are until it’s too late.” He could only go up from there, and did, praising, Cheers, M*A*S*H, and Hill Street Blues, and t...

Gay Couple Gets Married In Pro Hockey Arena With A Priest Referee

This article originally appeared on Outsports.  The grooms wore hockey jerseys over their dress shirts and bow ties. The priest wore a referee’s jersey. The wedding ceremony was at center ice. The chocolate cake was in the shape of a Zamboni. A goal horn sounded when the grooms kissed. The wedding of Eric Pinder and Dwayne Smoot at the Amway Center in Orlando — courtesy of the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL — was memorable as perhaps the first same sex wedding at a hockey arena.
