Virtual Background Do’s and Don’ts

With typically in-person meetings largely online these days, it can be difficult to set the stage for a successful meeting. While you can create an ambiance with lighting, music, staging, etc in person, can that be replicated online? Is a virtual background tacky or useful? We believe that, if done right, virtual backgrounds can aid in creating that desired ambiance that seems out of reach in an online environment. There are certainly right and wrong ways to go about this. When choosing a virtua...

Watch the teenage Bee Gees perform "Blowin' in the Wind" in 1963

While "Stayin' Alive" (1978) and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack was the pinnacle of the Bee Gees' mainstream success, real heads know that before they became disco icons, the brothers Gibb were an excellent psych-pop band and, before that, were teen rock 'n' roll celebs in their native Australia, opening for the likes of Chubby Checker. Above, their 1963 TV performance of Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind." (via r/VintageTV)

Q&A With Rising Canadian Rapper Killa Con

Hey Killa Con! Dope project you dropped with Nobody from Namibia! Please tell us how long have you been making music? Most importantly, how did you come up with your rap name? I started rapping when I was 16 after I heard Killer Mike’s verse on Outkast’s ‘The Whole World’. I got into producing beats when I was in 2nd year of University, studying business. I was spending all my time making music, so I decided to move to Australia and do a music degree instead. I’m 35 now, so I’ve been making mus...

William Blake’s Paintings Come to Life in Two Animations

The poet and painter William Blake toiled in obscurity, for the most part, and died in poverty. Twenty some years after his death, his rebellious spirit gained traction with the Pre-Raphaelites. By the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, Blake was ripe to be venerated as a counter-cultural hero, for having flown in the face of convention, while championing gender and racial equality, nature, and free love. Reclining half-naked on a “a fabulous couch in Harlem,” poet Allen Ginsburg had a ...

Watch Bob Dylan Perform “Only A Pawn In Their Game,” His Damning Song About the Murder of Medgar Evers, at the 1963 March on Washington

Trauma is repetition, and the United States seems to inflict and suffer from the same deep wounds, repeatedly, unable to stop, like one of the ancient Biblical curses of which Bob Dylan was so fond. The Dylan of the early 1960s adopted the voice of a prophet, in various registers, to tell stories of judgment and generational curses, symbolic and historical, that have beset the country from its beginnings. The verses of “Blowin’ in the Wind,” from 1963’s The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, enact ...

'Conmen, grifters and criminals': why is Trump's circle so at odds with the law?

Apart from legal trouble, what Bannon, Manafort, Flynn, Cohen, Stone, Gates and Papadopoulos have in common is the presidentTo live outside the law, Bob Dylan sang, you must be honest. It also helps, apparently, to stay as clear as possible from Donald Trump, whose inner circle of advisers has suffered steady attrition since 2017, through a series of encounters with the criminal justice system.

Dracula the Messiah: Part One – the Deceiver – Review

Director: Gregory Motton Release date: 2020 Contains spoilers This is the first of a trilogy of films, based around the novel of Dracula and quite ambitious in scope – this part, which takes us up to Dracula making landfall in Britain, is around 2-hours. From this first entry, it seems that they form an undoubtedly brave production. They are flawed, certainly, but are worth a look for what they do offer. The first thing to mention is that this is a black and white production and, whether it was...

"Restaurants are fragile; they compete with each other, but the collective of local restaurants is antifragile for that very reason."

"Had restaurants been individually robust, hence immortal, the overall business would be either stagnant or weak, and would deliver nothing better than cafeteria food — and I mean Soviet-style cafeteria food. Further, it would be marred with systemic shortages, with, once in a while, a complete crisis and government bailout. All that quality, stability, and reliability are owed to the fragility of the restaurant itself."A quote from the 2012 book "Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder," th...

Milton Glaser’s Stylish Album Covers for Bob Dylan, The Band, Nina Simone, John Cage & Many More

Milton Glaser hardly needs an introduction. But if the name somehow doesn’t ring a bell, “Glaser’s many contributions to pop culture,” as Ayun Halliday writes in a previous post, certainly will. These include “the  I ?NY logo, the psychedelic portrait of a rainbow-haired Bob Dylan, DC Comics’ classic bullet logo.” All images that “confer undeniable authority.” Many children of the sixties know Glaser well for his album covers, such as the halo photo on the front of Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits, wi...

‘The Lonely Tavern’—A Poem by Gehrig Chambless

"Hey Siri, play music."

I said into my AirPods. So nonspecific! I was out and about and not in a good position to skip things, but I was also forcing myself to accept whatever it was that I had put into my iPhone music library. I have so many audiobooks, but they're in a different app, so it's only rarely that spoken word comes up when I'm playing the "Music" app randomly. I can tell Siri to skip a track, so it's not as though I'd need to dig the iPhone out of my bag and squint to read it in the sunlight. But I sometim...

Earlier this month, the longtime country-music fixture Charlie Daniels died of a hemorrhagic stroke at the age of 83. Over his lifetime, Daniels had a hell of a journey. In the '60s and '70s, he played with Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. By the end of his life, he was a virulently right-wing … More »

‘Jimmy Carter Rock & Roll President’: Film Review

There’s a moment in Mary Wharton’s “Jimmy Carter Rock & Roll President” that looks downright surreal — at least, in light of the bombs-away culture-war politics that have come to rule our own era. It’s Jan. 20, 1977, the night of Carter’s Inaugural Gala, and introducing the festivities is that favorite son of progressive liberal […]

The Moment When Bob Dylan Went Electric: Watch Him Play “Maggie’s Farm” at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965

The phrase “when Dylan went electric” once carried as much weight in pop culture history as “the fall of the Berlin Wall” carries in, well, history. Both events have receded into what feels like the distant past, but in the early 1960s, they likely seemed equally unlikely to many a serious Bob Dylan fan in the folk scene. The also seemed equally consequential. To understand the culture of the decade, we must understand the import of Dylan’s appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965...
