Umweltschädliche Fast Fashion ist oft die einzige Plus-Size-Option

Wenn du dir die size-inclusive Modebranche mal nur in Zahlen ansiehst, könntest du schnell den Eindruck bekommen, das Shoppen als Plus-Size-Person sei heute einfacher und zugänglicher als noch vor einem Jahrzehnt. Und oberflächlich stimmt das auch: In den letzten zehn Jahren hat sich das Angebot in den Größen L bzw. 44 und aufwärts exponentiell vergrößert und ist noch dazu immer preisgünstiger geworden – insbesondere im Fast-Fashion-Bereich. (Außerdem gibt es auch immer mehr kleinere, unab...

Warum sind Männer in Weihnachtsfilmen so toxisch?

Romantische Weihnachtskomödien fallen meist in die Kategorie „So schlecht, dass es schon wieder gut ist“. Simple Plots und kitschige Szenen sorgen für lockere Unterhaltung, vor allem rund um Weihnachten, wenn du vielleicht ohnehin schon etwas sentimentaler gestimmt bist. Als ich mir aber letztens einige meiner alten Favoriten wie Tatsächlich… Liebe und Liebe braucht keine Ferien und auch ein paar neue Versionen des Genres angeschaut habe – zum Beispiel Netflix’ neues Original Love Hard –, wurde ...

Carols for Choirs: the journey to press

In 1928, Oxford University Press (OUP) published The Oxford Book of Carols. This was one of the earliest productions of the Press’s own new music department, founded in 1923. The Oxford Book of Carols (OBC) was a hugely popular landmark publication and remains in print to this day. It gathered together for the first time the music and words of many traditional British Christmas and Easter carols which, having been passed on orally, were in real danger of disappearing for all time. The editors Ra...

Punks, Goths, and Mods on TV (1983)

The Rivethead preoccupation with fashion is inescapably related to their anxiety over being confused for subcultures they profess to hate: Goths, Punks, Metalheads, Death Rockers… The fact that so many subcultures claim black as their color of choice contributes to the confusion. There are two points upon which theorists of post-industrial British subcultures generally agree: 1) No matter the music or the fashion, the boundaries between one subculture and another were rigorously, even v...

Ist „Rausziehen“ eine sichere Verhütungsmethode?

Die „Rauszieh-Methode“ oder Koitus interruptus ist die Art von Empfängnisverhütung, vor der dich deine Sexualkunde-Lehrer:innen damals in der Schule vermutlich gewarnt haben. In der Theorie klingt sie ziemlich simpel: Die Partner:innen achten beim Sex darauf, dass jeder kleine Tropfen Sperma außerhalb der Vagina bzw. Vulva bleibt. Die Praxis ist allerdings komplizierter, und verglichen mit anderen Verhütungsmethoden eher schwierig – und eindeutig keine sichere Taktik, um eine Schwangerschaf...

Zeit im Grünen gegen PMS: Ist da wirklich was dran?

Ich erinnere mich noch genau daran, wie eine Freundin von mir eines Tages wie in den Filmen langsam zu Boden sank und lauthals zu heulen begann, weil ihre Lieblingspizzeria an diesem Tag geschlossen hatte. Ihre Reaktion beunruhigte mich in keiner Weise, da ich wusste, dass sie gerade mit PMS zu kämpfen hatte. Außerdem konnte ich ihr Verhalten als jemand, die gegen monatliche Zusammenbrüche nicht immun ist, nur allzu gut nachvollziehen; für viele Frauen ist das prämenstruelle Syndrom ein fi...

Ein Eis-Lifehack soll beim Einschlafen helfen – ich habe ihn getestet

Great Benefits Using Naked Nutrition Protein Powder

One of the things we all like to do as we get older and that’s get healthier. For the last few years, I’ve gotten away from fast food and drinking sodas. Unfortunately, there are times that those hunger pains hit, and those old habits return. While taking a look at my daily routines one thing that was apparent was my lack of protein. In the past, I’ve tried several types of protein powder to make smoothies or shakes. After doing a lot of research about the types of protein powder for me I foun...

Charley Pride: how the US country star became an unlikely hero during the Troubles

Tammy Wynette and Johnny Cash cancelled gigs in Belfast during the violent 1970s, but Pride played on – and, with his song Crystal Chandeliers, became a sensation in the north and the RepublicWhen Charley Pride arrived in Belfast in early November 1976, the Northern Irish capital was at war. There were almost daily reports of shootings of civilians and soldiers on both sides of the sectarian divide. An armistice movement, the Peace People, had materialised that summer after three children were f...

‘The Wizard of Oz of entertainment’: the incredible career of Robert Stigwood

He managed the Bee Gees and created Saturday Night Fever but the closeted impressario ‘never felt that sense of success’ according to a new documentaryAccording to film director Joe Maggio, two types of executives run the entertainment industry – one far rarer than the other. “The vast majority of them don’t know what’s good, or what will be a hit, until ten other people tell them,” he said. “But a few can tell you right away. They’re the visionaries.”For an extended time, one of the most clairv...

60s psych-rockers the Electric Prunes: ‘We couldn’t sit around stoned!’

Discovered in an LA garage, the band rode a psychedelic wave into Easy Rider and a trippy Latin mass – even if they didn’t actually take acid. As a box set revives the music, their lead singer looks back“I guess I’m part of history,” says James Lowe, lead singer of the Electric Prunes, of the band’s oeuvre being gathered into a box set this month. “It suggests the idea we had for the band was viable – at least for a while.”Indeed, the Los Angeles quintet were, if only briefly, one of psychedeli...

Lasch—Instrumental and Practical Reason

Christopher Lasch The Minimal Self (1984) The antidote to instrumental reason is practical reason, not mysticism, spirituality, or the power of "personhood." In the Aristotelian tradition of political theory, phronesis or practical reason describes the development of character, the moral perfection of life, and the virtues specific to various forms of practical activity. Technique, on the other hand, concerns itself exclusively with the means appropriate to a given end. The highest form of ...
