#untitled - 17Mar19

There is nothing specific that I want to say. I write this because I have nothing else to do. I mean I do have a few million tasks to do a few thousand projects to work on and a few hundred conversations to make and a few billions to make. But right now, I am not sure if I want to work on any of those things. I do however want to not waste the time and consume something that just allows me to not get bored. Plus today is a special day. Plus there are so many thoughts in my head that need taming....

The 20 greatest breakup songs ever – ranked!

On the 40th anniversary of Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive topping the charts – and as the UK blunders towards its own acrimonious divorce – here’s the definitive list of tear-stained stonkersHip-hop isn’t big on romantic heartbreak, but this is a particularly fine example. There’s a lot of bragging from Guru about how he’s so inundated with offers since his ex packed him in that she’s probably jealous. But somehow, you get the sense he’s protesting too much: “Went home to see my mom and I saw yo...

9 must-drink Irish whiskeys

Irish whiskey is , for many people, a simple and cheap spirit you order when taking shots. Yet year after year, Irish whiskey is growing into something much, much more than that bottle of Jamo you’re used to seeing and feel comfortable ordering. In 2008, there were just three Irish whiskey distilleries. Today, Ireland has more than 20. All this is to say that it’s about time you consider more than just the green bottle of Jameson at the bar. That means looking at some of Jameson’s other offer...

A Room of One’s Own: Why We Need Space and Quiet

Virginia Woolf believed that if a woman was to write fiction that she must have money and a room of her own. I would say the same for a mental health blogger or anyone in a creative field. Money can be hard to come by. But a creative soul should at least have a fort or office somewhere in her home or in the neighboring vicinity that is hers alone, where she can hang up a “Do Not Disturb” sign. A space to spread out notes and books and journals for days or months on end until the project is fini...

The Unpopular Opinion: 10 Years Later, Zack Snyder’s ‘Watchmen’ is the Best-Case-Scenario for Anyone Adapting the Comic

(Welcome to The Unpopular Opinion, a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation is a best case scenario situation.) I will be the first to admit that Zack Snyder’s interpretation of Watchmen isn’t perfect. In fact, in some respects it’s a very strangely paced and plotted film, very long with meandering diversions into the psyches of its large and often disconn...

Why Gordon Lightfoot is still touring at 80, and what he admires about Bob Dylan

Singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot celebrated his 80th birthday on stage in his Canadian hometown of Orillia, Ontario, playing his 80th show of 2018 as part of a seven-night run of shows he says he’d agreed to do months in advance. There was just one caveat. “A long time ago they asked me if I would do it,” Lightfoot says. “I said, ‘Well if I’m still walking around, I will be there.’ And of course, I was.” In a call from his home in Toronto, the folk-rock icon jokes more than once about shufflin...

‘Stockholm’ Trailer: Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace Invent Stockholm Syndrome

As Ethan Hawke storms into a bank, gun blazing and bad wig flying, it’s easy to understand the origins of the term “Stockholm syndrome.” The phrase, which refers to captives developing an irrational sympathy for their captors, was first coined in 1973 after four hostages acted sympathetically with their captors during a bank robbery in Sweden. The upcoming dark comedy Stockholm is based on that story. Watch the first Stockholm trailer below. Stockholm Trailer Written and directed by Rob...

When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked "Is it OK to still have children?," what did she mean and was she saying something new?

I'm watching this little video snippet:"There’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult, and it does lead, I think, young people, to have a legitimate question: Is it OK to still have children?" Ocasio-Cortez said. "Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, $100,000 worth of student loan debt, and so they can’t even afford to have kids and a house, but also just this basic moral question, like, ‘what do we do?’" she continued. "And e...

Interview: Chuck Israels

Bassist Chuck Israels is probably best known for his work in the Bill Evans Trio between 1961 and 1966—a golden, delicate period for Evans. But Chuck also played with Stan Getz, Herbie Hancock, Gary Burton, Hampton, Hawes, Dave Pike, Gerry Mulligan and many other jazz greats. Chuck also has had a vast playing and recording career as a leader of his own groups. On March 6, Chuck will be in New York for a rare performance at Dizzy's Coca-Cola (go here).

The Music Experience Quadrant

In this piece, Alex Tiuniaev unveils a new method of examining how we listen to music using something called the Music Experience Quadrant, which places music on a spectrum between emotional vs. rational, and abstract vs. visual. ______________________________ Guest post by Alex Tiuniaev About four years ago, I wrote an essay entitled “Thinking Music” vs. “Emotional Music”: Two Different Kinds of Music Listening Experience on how I listen to various types of music and what it is ex...

Hayes Carll Says 'What It Is' Is Up to You

None The first time I saw Hayes Carll live was more than 10 years ago at a party at a BBQ joint hosted by the state of Texas. Carll sang his tunes about misfits, drunkards, and hard livin' to a somewhat straight-laced crowd that featured Governor Rick Perry, who guffawed at the humor in Carll's lyrics. Carll ignored the hypocrisy of Perry sympathizing with life's losers. In fact, Carll avoided making eye contact with anyone in attendance. He didn't seem squeamish as much as unsure about how exa...

Cass McCombs Is As Magnetic As Ever on 'Tip of the Sphere'

Even among lesser-known musicians, bandleader Cass McCombs is unique. Like cult artists Ariel Pink and John Maus, the durable singer-songwriter's fandom is as fervent as it is specific. McCombs makes the kind of studied music that rips effortlessly through distinct genre influences, carrying with it the potential to both astound and alienate. But his music also has a mainstream charm to it. Whereas one might reasonably dismiss Pink or Maus on the grounds of gimmick or melodrama, McCombs' mus...
