Tsakonian Today.

Angela Dansby has a BBC Travel post about a famous (among linguists) dialect of Greek: As you enter the mountainous village of Pera Melana in Greece’s southern Peloponnese peninsula, you’re likely to hear the roar of scooters zooming down narrow roads and the chirps of birds stealing ripe fruit from trees. But if you approach the village’s central cafe, you’ll hear a rather unusual sound. It’s the buzz of conversations among elders in a 3,000-year-old language called Tsakonika. The speakers are ...

Author Tony Horwitz Dies Suddenly At 60

Though he won a Pulitzer in 1995 reporting for The Wall Street Journal on the conditions of facing low-wage workers, he was best known for his books combining personal travel and history, often following himself the path of historical figures. His most famous volume, Confederates in the Attic, is now used in many a college course. – NPR

How to visit the Red Light District

Amsterdam’s Red Light District consists of just two canal streets and a few side alleys. This compact area, also known as De Wallen, is densely packed with some of Amsterdam’s best-known features. There’s cannabis memorabilia, bars, coffee shops, and Barbie-like vixens beckoning from behind red-curtained windows just about everywhere you look. But the Red Light District is also fascinating for its mix of art venues and unusual museums that can be enjoyed by everyone. Here are seven do’s and d...

The Ultimate 4 Day Amsterdam Itinerary

Updated: 05/30/18 | May 30th, 2018 Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in the world. I love its brick buildings, open skyline, rich history, and relaxed, easy going attitude towards life. Over the years, I’ve visited Amsterdam more times than I can count (I’m bad at math) and have spent countless hours walking the city, making friends with locals, and getting under its skin. Amsterdam has so much to do that, even after so many visits, I still find new things to do and see. The city deserves ...

Set atop a hill in the heart of Siena’s Chianti region in Tuscany, this adaptive reuse project preserves the traditional rural architecture on the outside, but hides surprisingly modern spaces in the interior. The renovated farmhouse on the Chianti Hills overlooks vineyards and woodland through new cutouts and apertures in t...

Charlotte Perriand’s Utilitarian Beauty

This is the latest installment of our Designing Women series. Previously: A Friendly Reminder of Eva Zeisel's Enduring ExcellenceBeauty in utility was the slogan of the Ecole de l'Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs, in Paris, where Charlotte Perriand began her formal design training as a 17-year-old student. By the time she completed her studies in 1925, she had fully embraced the school's motto, and as architect Roger Aujame points out, "it became the axiom of her professional life." Although s...

Betty Davis’ Legendary and Long-Lost Recording Sessions, Produced by Miles Davis, Finally Released (1968-1969)

Bringing her down-home North Carolina background to the world of funk, Betty Mabry spent a better part of the sixties trying to make it big in the music scene, while also modeling to pay the rent. She ran in the same crowds as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Hugh Masekela (who she dated), and she wrote her own songs, selling one to the Chambers Brothers, and then got a couple of singles on Capitol Records. And then Miles Davis stepped in the picture. First as a whirlwind romance and ...

A QUICK PRIMER ON BETTY DAVIS’S COLUMBIA RECORDINGS ALBUM

I was very pleasantly surprised to see this morning that Light in the Attic announced the release of Betty Davis’s long-buried Columbia recordings from 1968 and ’69. I’ve known this release was coming but was asked to keep it under wraps and to be honest, I forgot it was even due out this week until I read this morning’s press release. It’s hard to overstate how excited people – myself especially! – am about this. For years, we were told the Columbia Records were off limits and that there was...

Polka Dot Birthday Party Decor and Details

Hi friends, last weekend, as you know, I threw myself a 45th birthday polka dot party. The last party I threw myself was five years ago for my 40th. It was an Ugly Dress Party that is still being talked about amongst my friends. So why do I find the need to throw myself a party once every five years? I’m not entirely sure but I do believe it has something to do with me being an introvert and needing that much time to mentally prepare myself :) It’s also my way of saying thank you to the girl...

The Mystery of the Ghostly Stain in the Attic of the Athens Lunatic Asylum 

I’ve heard that Margaret Shilling was deaf. I’ve heard that she was unable to speak, to call for help. I’ve heard that she was playing hide-and-go-seek, and I’ve heard that she just wanted to die. She has been called Ohio’s most notorious ghost, the lost lady. Teenagers have prayed to her, broken into a building for her, lit candles to her, and lay down on the spot where her body did that famous thing—where it vanished, reportedly, and then reappeared, leaving a stain.Read more...
