This Week In Trailers: The Bouncer, The Changeover, Beats, Two For Joy, Transit

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we catch up with JCVD, watch a story about fascism that fits in quite well with today’s climate, get supernatural in New Zealand, be...

Ski and See the Wonders of Utah at Brian Head

It’s a cold clear night in Southern Utah. Bundled up kids slide down nearby piles of snow while the grown-ups marvel at a sight seldom seen in today’s brightly lit world—the stars. So many stars. Their guide to the night sky is “Dark Sky” Dave Sorenson, a ranger from Cedar Breaks National Monument. Using a green laser and telescopes, Sorenson takes visitors on a tour of the constellations. Cedar Breaks is a designated “dark sky” monument, meaning as much attention is paid to ensuring the night s...

As Soft and as Pink as a Nursery -- 13 Really Sexist Musicals

In this moment in our cultural history, in which we're finally calling out expressions of sexism, racism, and other bias, it's worth looking closer at the shows we produce. Maybe the Era of Trump has made it necessary.A while back, I wrote a blog post about musicals that are much darker than most people think. Now we're having debates about problematic content in older musicals, and whether or not some older shows should be largely retired.Sometimes people tell me -- apologetically, but not rea...

Uwe Bläsing, the Scholar.

Stefan Georg’s “Uwe Bläsing, the Scholar” (Iran and the Caucasus 19 [2015] 3-7) describes a remarkable man; the first paragraph nearly made me run around the house cackling with joy: Uwe Bläsing’s scholarly work can easily be described as spanning more academic fields than most of us are following as regular readers, let alone are able to contribute to. First of all, he is, of course, an Altaicist, in the best (and true) sense of this word ― a scholar who is perfectly at home in all three tradit...

The Best Seed Company in the World by Allen Bush

It is time to say good-bye to the wonderful and versatile Jelitto Perennial Seeds—at least in one sense. I’ll be clocking out, for the last time, at the end of the year. I am grateful to my friend Klaus Jelitto for giving me a job 22 years ago. There has never been a dull day. A perennial business, with an astounding selection of over 3,721 different seed items, was, from the beginning, right up my alley. All I had to do was convince the rest of North America to buy into my passion for perennia...

The rise of 'look at me' travelers

HELLO. My name is Georg and I am a traveling narcissist. Narcissism is defined as the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one’s own attributes. Regrettably, I stand guilty. I came to realize my affliction as I was sitting watching my twitter and Instagram notifications pour in after a recent series of photo postings. With each notification came a sense of relief, joy, and fulfillment. On one hand, I recognized how it was stupid, and went against everything I stand fo...

Perennially Yours: Steve Still by Allen Bush

A young Steve Still works a push hoe on the 80 acre family farm in Carlinville, Illinois. Steve sold his vegetables in town. Garden Rant contributor Bob Hill came to my 60th surprise birthday party some years ago. After a few glasses of wine, he said, “Look around. All of these friends will be at your funeral.” I didn’t know whether to laugh or pray. I have thought about Bob’s prophetic words since the day of my party. I figured out a plan a few weeks ago. It’s simple. I’ll always love my famil...

A group of New York City ad employees are baiting Planned Parenthood's opponents with a fake petition

As Republicans try to advance toward their goal of defunding Planned Parenthood, a trio of advertising employees think they've found a way to convince people it's misguided: by tricking them into learning more about what Planned Parenthood does. Alyssa Georg, Elena Knox, and Claudia Cukrov work for New York-based ad agency SS+K. They've launched a website and Twitter account aimed at engaging some of Planned Parenthood’s most vocal critics online. urges users to sign a pet...

Berlinale 2017: 'Wilde Maus' Amusingly Profiles a Critic's Breakdown

This Raspberry Pi-powered Lego robot can solve a Rubik’s cube

It might not be as fast as some humans and fellow machines, but recreational inventor Francesco Georg has built a cute-looking robot that can solve a Rubik’s cube entirely on its own – and while there’s nothing novel about this concept, this weird gadget was built using only a set of Lego and a Raspberry Pi. Georg showed off his quirky invention in a video posted Reddit where you can watch the the machine solve the cube in a little less than the not-so-impressive time of a minute and a half. To ...

Gay Germany – Europe’s Most Queer Country

By Adam Groffman Germany, as it turns out, is a great destination for gay and lesbian travelers. According to a recent study from Berlin’s Dalia Research GmbH, Germany has the largest LGBT population in Europe—estimated at 7.4%. This despite the lack of federal recognition for full same-sex marriage. Germany is still relatively progressive with its LGBT equality laws, offering same-sex adoption, civil unions (lebenspartnerschaft), and the legal right to change gender. Germany has long been a ho...

A Family Holiday Weekend in Bamberg, Germany

Adi takes us on a family-friendly weekend getaway in UNESCO-listed Bamberg, Germany. Living in Germany comes with a lot of perks. The most important one for me is the travel opportunities. A few weekends ago, we were able to fulfil our family travel wish of visiting Bamberg, Germany. Bamberg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site just two and a half hours north of Stuttgart. Because Bamberg extends over seven hills, each crowned by a church, it’s also known as the “Franconian Rome.” Welcome to UNES...

A budget travel guide to Dusseldorf, Germany

Dusseldorf is a place of contrasts — a bustling, artistic and fashionable city of nearly 600,000 inhabitants in the western reaches of Germany along the Rhine River, it manages to feel like both a big city and a small town. Its economy roars along, with local industries still chugging, while fashion boutiques and upscale department stores line its swanky Königsallee. Students train in art and design, while young professionals go to work each morning in the city’s Media Harbour, a riverside devel...

Iceland: 3 Mistakes Many Travelers Make

I can help you avoid three common, expensive pitfalls when traveling in Iceland. The first is tours, the second is transportation, and the third is the dreaded FOMO. What makes Iceland so great? Martin Schulz, the German photographer featured in this article, loves Iceland because, “It puts my own problems in perspective. Iceland’s nature is so big and so raw, and we humans are so small and fragile, that it inspires both humility and awe.”  Now the 3 pitfalls, beginning with tours. Iceland is a...

Relaxing at Paris Plage while Gearing up for the Rentrée

August is a famously sleepy month in Paris, the time when the juilletistes (those French who take their summer holidays in July) switch places with the aoûtiens (pronounced “ah-oo-sien”, who prefer their vacation in August). Small shops may close for the month, and bakeries go on rotation. Even some cultural institutions go into standby mode. For those stranded in the city, there’s always “Paris Plage,” that bizarrely agreeable transformation of the banks of the Seine into a stretch of the ...
