Meet Yasuke, Japan’s First Black Samurai Warrior

“His name was Yasuke. His height was 6 shaku 2 sun” — roughly six feet, two inches — “he was black, and his skin was like charcoal.” Those words come from the 16th-century samurai Matsudaira Ietada, and they describe one of his colleagues. Though we don’t know much detail about his life itself, we do know that there once lived a black samurai called Yasuke, a version of the name he had in Africa, probably the then Portuguese Mozambique. Brought to Japan in 1579 by an Italian Jesuit named Aless...

A Big List of Free Art Lessons on YouTube

It may seem like a dubious honor to belong to a select group that includes some of my favorite creative people: art school dropouts. But while a failed endeavor can be painful, many a dropout learns that the experience is valuable not only because failures can fuel future success, but also because the skills, techniques, and ways of thinking one picks up in the first, “boot camp,” year of art school are widely applicable to every creative endeavor. My favorite art school class was simply...

Hear 4+ Hours of Jazz Noir: A Soundtrack for Strolling Under Street Lights on Foggy Nights

Image from The Big Combo, via Wikimedia Commons Nowadays few crowds seem less likely to harbor criminal intent than the ones gathered to listen to jazz, but seventy, eighty years ago, American culture certainly didn’t see it that way. Back then, jazz accompanied the life of urban outsiders: those who dabbled in forbidden substances and forbidden activities, those influenced by the alien morality of Europe or even farther-away lands, those belonging to feared and mistreated social groups.

7 Drugstore Hair Products That Are Worth Every Penny

Bonus: They're each less than $10! Photo Credit: Unsplash Haircare can be an expensive business. You've got to buy shampoos, conditioners, styling products, heat protectants, etc. Then there are specialty products (which are normally quite expensive) catered towards for specific hair concerns, like oil, frizz, or color protection. This level of upkeep makes me and my wallet cry.Expensive haircare products don't always fit into our college budgets, but the good news is that there are less expen...

How Famous Paintings Inspired Cinematic Shots in the Films of Tarantino, Gilliam, Hitchcock & More: A Big Supercut

It’s no accident that one of the best-known series of cinema-analyzing video essays bears the title Every Frame a Painting. When describing the height of film’s visual potential, we often draw metaphors from art history, but the relationship also goes in another direction: more often than we might think, the filmmakers and their collaborators looked to the canvases of the masters for inspiration in the first place. In this trilogy of short video essays, “Film Meets Art,” “Film Meets Art II,...

Waldkita — forest kindergarten — in Germany.

There are 1,500 of them in Germany.Most have opened in the last 15 years and are usually located in the city’s parks, with a bare-bones structure serving as a sort of home base, but others... rely on public transportation to shuttle their charges daily out into the wilderness, where they spend most of the day, regardless of weather. Toys, typically disparaged at waldkitas, are replaced by the imaginative use of sticks, rocks and leaves. A 2003 Ph.D. dissertation by Peter Häfner at Heidelberg Uni...

Get kids telling stories to speak truth to power | Brief letters

Oral skills in schools | The Trial and The Law Machine | Alan Titchmarsh’s gravitas | Loose canon | GranniesAs a storyteller and speech and language therapist I was delighted to see Tim Lott’s article (Ditch the grammar and teach storytelling instead, 20 May). However, his emphasis turns out to be on story writing, not storytelling. Oracy has been fatally sidelined by government policies, yet we know that oral skills must be in place to ensure the development of literacy. So please, by all means...

John Grisham’s 15-Hour Workweek

The Deep Life of John Grisham As longtime readers know, I enjoy tracking down the deep work habits of well known and highly accomplished individuals. This is why I was happy to recently stumble across a pair of interviews (here and here) in which the novelist John Grisham describes his professional routines. Here’s what I learned… Grisham primarily writes his novels during the winter months on his farm in Oxford, Mississippi. During this period he works five days a week, starting at 7 am and...

Educational disparity in the playground | Brief letters

Private schools | Basque refugees | Sexism | Raw meat | Older Guardian readersI saw the “privileged few” on Monday. Picture the scene: a beautiful sunny day in a village, near Northampton, all the primary school children ran the Race for Life for Cancer Research. Having only a small playground, they were allowed to run on the extensive playing fields of the private school opposite, while their children played cricket and rounders. I am afraid that my afternoon was somewhat spoilt by the contrast...
