Impact of virtual drinking trend

Life changed slowly in the beginning of 2020, and then all at once when the realities of COVID-19 set in. Restaurants and bars that were filled in February were shuttered until further notice by mid-March. Thousands of hospitality workers lost their jobs, and small-business owners had to make the tough decision to stay open for takeout, close for now, or close for good — decisions that will shape cities around the world for years to come. It’s impossible to know what’s going to happen next, b...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: I’m afraid to mow my lawn because of the bees

I have a vexing household problem right now, and I don’t think it’s one that Heloise can solve. Like many of you, I live in an ordinary suburban neighborhood filled with 1950s tract homes. And what’s nearly always in front of those homes? Lawns. As a person who works at home, I hate Thursdays, because every single one of my neighbors uses the same gardener, so I have to listen to lawnmovers and leaf blowers from morning until night. I don’t use these gardeners, even though they’re good, because ...

The New Nikon D6

Nikon just announced its new pro flagship, the D6. Although you probably won't see this mentioned much on the Web and in the forums, this brings to parity the number of top-end film F cameras and pro digital D cameras. There's a slight disparity in the time it took to get there: the original Nikon F was introduced in April 1959 and the F6 began shipping in 2004 and can still be purchased new (or rather, out of what's called "new old stock," NOS, with outflow regulated to a trickle by a high pri...

How Gretel & Hansel Puts a Dark but Empowering Spin on the Original Fairy Tale

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the movie Gretel & Hansel. The story of “Hansel and Gretel” has been frightening children since the early 1800s, but Gretel & Hansel, director Osgood Perkins’ latest horror flick, pushes the fairy tale into new realms of terror. Now, that’s not to say that the Brothers Grimm original, in which a young brother and sister are abandoned by their parents in a dark wood before stumbling into the clutches of a cannibalistic witch, has ever been particularl...

‘Gretel and Hansel’ Review: A Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

A brooding, beautiful, mystical bedtime story, Gretel and Hansel has been delegated to a release in the dead days of January, but deserves better. Oz Perkins‘s mystical, occult-heavy take on the classic folktale from the Brothers Grimm has so much style, and so many bold ideas, that it seems destined to become a cult classic someday – the type of film people find years from now and ask, “Why the hell haven’t I heard of this before?” Perkins, who co-wrote the script with Rob Hayes, takes the ...

Review: 'Gretel & Hansel' is a Chilling Fairytale Packed with Witchcraft

When I ask around, nearly everybody knows the story of a brother and sister, who wander in the dim forest until they reach deliciously smelling house made of ginger cookies, candy, and other treats. A fairytale, as one should know, created mostly for kids to prevent them from talking and taking things from strangers – a moral teaching us a core value that we, from a very young age, can apply to daily life. Gretel & Hansel is a dark, eerie, bloodcurdling counterpart of the story we remember. A ...

A new Hänsel und Gretel at the Royal Opera House

Fairy-tales work on multiple levels, they tell delightful yet moral stories, but they also enable us to examine deeper issues. With its approachably singable melodies, Engelbert Humperdinck's Märchenoper Hänsel und Gretel functions in a similar way; you can take away the simple delight of the score, but Humperdinck's discreetly Wagnerian treatment of his musical material allows for a variety of more complex interpretations.

Why Does This Halloween Costume Cost $900?

Halloween costumes are like prom dresses. Chances are: You only ever wear them once. And yet, that doesn't seem to get in the way of people forking over serious cash for something they are going to sport for a single evening of revelry. (The wonders of consumer culture never cease to amaze, right?)So what might a couple hundred bucks buy from this year's online costume rack? You could drop a ton of dough to dress up like Harley Quinn, since, like Hansel, she's so hot right now. Or maybe a Storm...
