David Byrne Channels the Weird and the Ordinary in 'True Stories'

None As the frontman for , David Byrne certainly earned a reputation as a critic of culture. Songs like "Once in a Lifetime" and "Burning Down the House" ask existential questions that poke at the dull monotony of the everyday. On the surface, Byrne's only feature-length film, True Stories (1986), seems to follow suit. The characters are based on people featured in tabloid news stories that Byrne collected, later deciding to construct a narrative around their idiosyncrasies. The overlapping...

As Kirsten Gillibrand enters the presidential race, Nate Silver seems to push for the NYT to use its "agenda-setting power" to keep Al Franken out of the "conversation" of "normal people."

It's definitely a part of the conversation, but let's keep in mind that the NYT, and frankly even (to a lesser magnitude) 538, have a lot of agenda-setting power for what's part of the conversation. So Twitter isn't an exogenous measure of what normal people care about. — Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) January 16, 2019 You can peruse the current tweets about Gillibrand and Franken here. Two examples:"Holding Gillibrand accountable for her statements and actions IS NOT th...

Anita O'Day: August 1960

In 1952, Norman Granz signed singer Anita O'Day to his Clef label. Clef became Norgran in 1954 and then Verve in 1955. Throughout the 1950s, O'Day recorded more than 20 albums for Granz's labels. Most of the recordings are quite good, but only a few are excellent. Two that stand out are Waiter, Make Mine Blues, arranged by Russ Garcia, and Incomparable, arranged by Bill Holman. Both were recorded in August 1960. The quality of O'Day's seductive voice and magic of her sassy approach often were ...

Opinion: Democrats Introduce Symbolic Gun Control Bill

Democrats won control of the House of Representatives during the midterm elections of 2018. After the newly elected representatives were sworn in, party leaders wasted no time introducing various bills, one of them being a gun control bill. What does this mean? Nothing, it means nothing as the bill is mostly symbolic. It is no secret Democrats from left leaning states want to ban certain types of firearms, such as the AR-15 and AK-47. The ban is an uphill battle as Democrats from working clas...

Will Jeff Bezos Get Half of MacKenzie Bezos’s Fortune in the Divorce?

How much do you think Jeff Bezos will get in the divorce? I haven’t heard anyone ask that. I’ve only read headlines like How Much Could MacKenzie Bezos Get? and How Much Will Jeff Bezos Lose? In the Bezos marriage, the partners are equals. Jeff and MacKenzie started the company together. And they worked side by side. When the company was big and they had four kids, MacKenzie took half the load (kids) and Jeff took half the load (work). Why do people assume Jeff will be doling out money to Mac...

A $350 toilet powered by worms may be the ingenious future of sanitation that Bill Gates has been dreaming about

Worm toilets require no traditional flushing and aren't hooked up to a sewer system — instead, worms compost human waste. More than 4,000 such "Tiger Toilets" have been installed to date across India, in homes of people who were previously defecating in the open. The worm toilets smell a lot better than a pit latrine, and don't breed mosquitoes either. Here's how a $350 toilet powered by worms could change the world and save lives.  Worms may not have spines, but they're doing some back-break...

Around the world, the arts are being used within communities to address local needs. For such projects to be most effective, program participants must: ensure that their program goals are locally-defined; research which art forms, content, and events might best feed into their program goals; develop artistic products that address their goals; and evaluate these products to ensure their efficacy. The work of the Global Alliance to Immunize Against AIDS Vaccine Foundation in Mali offers one exampl...
