'It was a little awkward' – how Rick Schatzberg shot his old friends topless

They grew up in a ‘nowhere’ suburb in the 70s, smoking skunk, going for rides and dating girls. The photographer reveals why he decided to capture the ravages of time on his old childhood gangRick Schatzberg had a dark epiphany a few years back, when two of his friends died in quick succession, one from a heart attack, the other from an overdose. “When two people you know and love die within six weeks of each other,” says the photographer quietly, “you realise that death is not just something th...

6 Reasons Why You Should Be Drinking Cinnamon Tea This Winter

The tiny shift and a giant revolution

Human history is dotted with numerous incidents that felt like tiny, insignificant nudges at the time but fast forward a few years and these tiny nudges were found to be the tipping points of revolutions that shifted the way us humans move around. One such tiny nudge happened a couple of days ago when I got myself a sub-15K, Android Phone.Now, this sounds like a tiny thing. Even trivial. After all, more than 89% of the country has these sub-15K phones and they seem to be getting by fine. I am de...

FRAGRANTICA Editors' Favorite Perfumes of 2020

2020, phew, what a year! It felt like two weeks that were put on a loop continuously. A sort of Groundhog Day reprised in a more doomed direction. This made for minimal outings, fewer occasions to shop and sample at physical stores, and more of the magic of the Internet to reply to for fragrance sampling opportunities, as I highlighted in a dedicated article on Covid-19 Shopping. Thankfully the qu... Read full article: FRAGRANTICA Editors' Favorite Perfumes of 2020 from Fragrantica Perfumes and...

Is Manifesting a Physical Skill, a Mental Skill, or a Spiritual Skill?

People often frame their manifesting skills as something spiritual, mental, or a combination of the two. Manifesting is often treated as something akin to prayer. Ask the universe for what you desire, and hopefully you’ll receive it. But what if manifesting is actually a physical skill in disguise? Other mental skills, including reading, writing, speaking, and solving math problems, are actually physical skills too. Your physical brain implements these skills on your neural hardware. If yo...

I run to keep fit, but I hate it

No one would argue that running isn’t good for you, but do we really have to pretend to like it, too?For the 126th time this year, I turn the corner by the rowing club and begin the climb towards Stamford Hill. I have half a kilometre to go. Mist has settled on the river to my left, where waterfowls, Egyptian geese and a single, stately heron have gathered by some rushes in a dazzlingly pretty scene for Haringey in late November. They likely make some pleasant noises, but only the fortunes of HM...

'No offense': Obama, an adopted Chicagoan, favors New York-style pizza over deep-dish pizza

President Barack Obama. Kevin Dietsch-Pool/Getty Images Former President Barack Obama, to the surprise of many, favors New York-style pizza over Chicago deep-dish pizza. "I love Chicago deep-dish pizza," Obama said. "I love my hometown. But New York-style, being able to fold it, walk while you're eating, there's an efficiency element to it that I think puts it over the top." The former president firmly rejects pineapple as a pizza topping, though. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more...

The girl with her own tattoos: the joy of homemade ink

What did you do in lockdown? Make banana bread? Do yoga? What if you decided to try your hand at homemade tattoos?I have a little tattoo of a cross on my right hip. It is horrible. It is small and fat, like someone made a cross out of clay then squashed it. It leans to the right for no particular reason, like a terrible tribute to the tower of Pisa. I am very fond of it, because the story behind it is incredibly stupid.I was 18 and cool-adjacent – just about enough of my acquaintances were cool ...
