Ich habe mir Instagrams „Bixie“-Cut schneiden lassen

Im zarten Alter von 14 Jahren beging ich die ultimative Beauty-Sünde: Entgegen des Rats der Haarstylist:innen meines Vertrauens ließ ich mir einen Pixie-Cut à la Anna in O.C., Californiaverpassen. Im Gegensatz zu anderen O.C.-Charakteren – wie die einschüchternd hübsche Summer oder die traurige, ultraschlanke Marissa – schien mir der Look der lustigen, lockeren Anna zumindest nicht unnachahmbar vor. Sie trug immer lässige Pullunder und klopfte sarkastische Sprüche, und das alles mit einem süßen,...

tom morello on the iww and the soundtrack to the good good fight

In October, The New York Times published this piece by musician and activist Tom Morello. I've read it several times, and shared it on social media, and still I can't stop re-reading and listening. When something moves me like that, you know I have to preserve it on this blog.I am and always will be a Wobbly at heart. I often feel I was born in the wrong era. Rather than sitting across the table and trying to persuade an employer to put a few more scraps in a contract, I should have organized to...

Christopher Lasch The Revolt of the Elites (1995) According to Walter Lippman...the "omnicompetent citizen" was an anachronism in the age of specialization. In any case, most citizens, he thought, cared very little about the substance of public policy. The purpose of journalism was not to encourage public debate but to provide experts with the information on which to base intelligent decisions.(p. 10) (This "in opposition to John Dewey and other veterans of the progressive movement.") ...

BLM Supporter Amanda Lee Now Also Assuming the Role of Virtual YouTuber

Another Westerner has decided to jump on the virtual YouTuber bandwagon as singer and voice actor Amanda Lee has announced she will be taking on a 2D persona like other VTubers, and bound to have critics guessing when she’ll inevitably bring politics into the hobby (which seems highly likely to happen considering her past tweets).

Stephen Sondheim, 1930–2021

He lived 91 richly productive years, attended a live theater production eleven days before he died, enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with friends the day before his death. Who can ask, as the Gershwin song goes, for anything more? But we fans are greedy: The death of the composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, on November 26, after a long life of creative brilliance, leaves us wanting still more. So here’s a little more. A partial list of Sondheim musicals in chronological order, via Teepubli...

‘I was part of the Beatles’ act’: Mike McCartney’s best photograph

‘I call our kid “Rambo Paul” in this one, because he reminds me of Stallone. I have no idea why George is pointing at his nipple’I didn’t intend to pick up a camera. I’d been practising on drums that had fallen off the back of a lorry into our house on Forthlin Road, Liverpool. But when I was 13, I broke my arm at scout camp, so Pete Best got the job in our kid’s group. That’s when I started taking photos on the family box camera. It was fortuitous, though, because if I had become the Beatles’ d...

How Drummer Moe Tucker Defined the Sound of the Velvet Underground

A high school girl from Levittown, New York, the country’s first suburb, Maureen “Moe” Tucker hardly fit the profile of a rock star in one of the most influential bands of the 1960s. Then again, neither did any of the members of the Velvet Underground. Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Tucker had barely begun before Andy Warhol introduced them to Nico and billed them as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, and it was Warhol who helped turn them into cult heroes. But Tucker made th...

What Movies Teach Us About Mozart: Exploring the Cinematic Uses of His Famous Lacrimosa

In the annals of surprisingly impressive IMDb pages, few can surpass that of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Despite having died a century before the birth of cinema, he has racked up and continues to rack up more composer credits each and every year. Many of these owe to the use of one piece, indeed one movement, in particular: the Lacrimosa from his Requiem, which contains the very last notes he ever wrote. “We should probably expect some of these uses to have a somber, funereal quality, and ...

Before you consume any form of marijuana, it is important to know that every form is mind-altering in some way or another. The mind is going to react similarly to every form as the molecules of the compound react with the brain cells. You are still going to experience that feeling of euphoria and relaxation once your system has digested these compounds.

6 mögliche Auslöser für deine Unterleibsschmerzen

Vielen von uns kommt er bekannt vor, der pochende, stechende, vielleicht dumpfe Schmerz im Unterleib zu bestimmten Zeiten im Menstruationszyklus. Oft fällt dieser Schmerz mit der Periode zusammen, und wenn wir Glück haben, lässt er sich mit einer Wärmflasche oder Schmerztablette schnell wieder besänftigen.

Bikers, rappers and rude boys: the photographer who got to the heart of subcultures

Janette Beckman has spent four decades documenting underground movements from London’s punks and the birth of hip-hop to LA gangs and illegal girls’ fight clubs. How does she win her subjects’ trust? It was the tension between Janette Beckman’s shyness and her curiosity about people that helped spark a career photographing subcultures. “I realised that having a camera gave you licence to go up to strangers and say, ‘Hi, I’d like to take a picture of you,’” she says. This epiphany jump-started a ...
