Sunday Firesides: Change at the Leverage Point

At any given time, there’s probably a few areas of your life you’d like to change or improve. Given that it’s arguably best to go after one goal at a time, how then do you choose where to focus your efforts and attention? Pick the point of greatest leverage. A leverage point is a place that allows you to lift a much heavier load of personal change than you otherwise could. It’s a spot at which a single move doesn’t just create a localized effect, but sets off multiple positive dominos that rip...

Contour Brun (34) Chanel Contour Brun (34) Stylo Ombre et Contour Eyeshadow Liner Khol ($34.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a deep chocolate brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish.

Airport Selection: Why Tom Ford's Vert des Bois Stands Out

I will confess that I don't mind layovers between cities when I'm flying. It allows me time to get myself organized, find the next gate without running, and yes, a chance to see what's happening over at the airport's Duty Free shop. This can often be hit or miss - Some airports really deliver a great smelling experience, and some are lackluster and don’t have much that you haven’t already sme...

Guy sees his straight friend’s tattoo and recognizes it from a Reddit nude

A straight guy seems to have broken the cardinal rule of posting anonymous nudes online: Don’t include identifying features. But you certainly won’t hear his gay friend complaining.

Guy seeks advice after finding gay adult films on dad’s iPad

After a Reddit user sought advice after finding “gay [adult films] on [his] widowed father’s iPad,” commenters responded with one unified message: Don’t ask Dear Old Dad about it. “None of your business if u ask me,” one replied. A different commenter concurred, saying, “His intimacy is not of your business. (You wouldn’t want him to search in your own stuff, do you?)

ColourPop Champagne Bubbles Pressed Illuminator Review & Swatches

Champagne Bubbles Colour Pop Champagne Bubbles Pressed Illuminator ($12.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a light-medium, golden yellow with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was yellower and lighter than it appeared in the pan–almost more of a yellow hue than a true gold. The texture was slightly drier, denser, and needed a heavier handed approach to pick up product evenly on it. It applied evenly and blended out well, but ...

Can a sexuality quiz really answer the question “Am I gay?”

If you don’t feel comfortable discussing your sexuality with others, you may try an online sexuality quiz to help answer the question, “Am I gay?” But can a sexuality quiz really tell if you’re gay? What if you’re bisexual, asexual, confused, or just curious? Of the several types of sexuality quizzes, none are great at determining a person’s sexuality. But while they can’t definitively answer the question you may be asking, they can shed light on different aspects of your sexuality. Let’s see h...

Someone asked if I’d ever date someone who is disabled, and it stopped me in my tracks

Josh Galassi (Photo credit: Jenny Jimenez) “Would you ever date someone who is disabled?” I was 15 minutes into a podcast interview when the question came up. I should have known. I was being interviewed about being gay and disabled after all, something I’m contractually obligated to talk about 587,000 times a year, it seems. I was a pro at this; I should have been armed and at the ready. Nevertheless, the question hit me like a ton of bricks. Fortunately, I’d worked in PR long enough to...

"It’s possible to create a realistic portrait of contemporary San Francisco by simply listing all the harebrained new-money antics and 'mindful' hippie-redux principles that flourish there."

"All you have to do after that is juxtapose them with the effects of the city’s rocket-ship rents: a once-lively counterculture gasping for air and a 'concentration of public pain' shameful and shocking even to a native New Yorker. [Anna] Wiener deploys this strategy liberally, with adroit specificity and arch timing... By the end of the book, she shows that technologists are not interested in 'systems' thinking only because it can fix what’s broken; they are 'settling into newfound political po...

There's something I do every day that if you do it too you'll know why I'm looking at this picture today.

That's "Portrait of a Lady (formerly incorrectly identified as Christina of Denmark, Dowager-Duchess of Milan and Lorraine [1521–1590])" at the Wikipedia article "Bobbin lace" ("Bobbin lace is a lace textile made by braiding and twisting lengths of thread, which are wound on bobbins to manage them.

Listen to Panchavadyam – Temple Orchestra

I did some recordings of Panchavadyam (Temple Orchestra) at Sri Sankarankulangara Temple festival (chuttu valakku) in Thrissur. Panchavadyam (Malayalam: പഞ്ചവാദ്യം), literally meaning an orchestra of five instruments, is basically a temple art form that has evolved in Kerala. Of the five instruments, four — timila, maddalam, ilathalam and idakka — belong to the percussion category, while the fifth, kombu, is a wind instrument. Much like any chenda melam, panchavadyam is characterised by a pyram...

How to Embrace Your Soul

We are inherently spiritual in nature and all connected at higher levels of consciousness. As spiritual beings, we operate on multiple levels of higher consciousness simultaneously, but our physical senses create the illusions of individuality and of only the physical universe existing. Because we are connected spiritually, in your interactions with others always keep in mind that superficial differences like skin color, race, religion and nationality are insignificant. When you acknowledge your...
