‘The Magicians’ Faces “The Serpent” in an Episode All About Magical Terrorists and Human Nature

Like most episode titles of The Magicians, this week’s title , “The Serpent,” has many layers. There’s the obvious reference: The Serpent is the name of a magical terrorist group that is infecting hedge witches with earworms that make them boil to death from the inside if they do magic. But then there’s the subtler reference, a nod to the notion that many “serpents” in the world aren’t an evil, external force looking to do harm, but are things that live inside us, issues or facets of ou...

Comment on roberta’s roasted garlic caesar salad by Julia

I thought I had white vinegar and sherry vinegar in my cupboard, but it turns out that I didn’t. :( I didnt have time to go to the store, so I substituted with apple cider vinegar and red wine vinegar. I’m not sure how it compares with the recipe as written, but still so good I want to eat it daily.

Julia Roberts Just Got The Dreamiest Haircut For Spring

Just when you thought you'd perfected your spring hair inspiration moodboard, Julia Roberts went and got a haircut that'll make you reconsider that appointment you made for "just a trim."Days before the official start of spring, the actress visited her longtime go-to hairstylist Serge Normant to get a fresh new lob that couldn't be more perfect for the season. The celebrity hair guru posted a photo of Roberts on Instagram that showed off her choppy shoulder-length cut and natural-looking blonde...

How Successful Women Advocate For Themselves At Work — & How You Can, Too

Women rarely have just one job. In addition to our careers, there’s the nurturing we do at home, within ourselves, and in our relationships. And let’s face it, it doesn’t even end there. At work, we’re often tasked with the additional, invisible labor of fighting for respect, recognition, and fair compensation.That’s what makes self-advocacy such a critical skill for women. We’re not always lucky enough to have a benevolent boss or a workplace that inherently recognizes our worth and power. But...

‘The Magicians’ Presents Big Questions in “Home Improvement”

Several characters in “Home Improvement,” the title of this week’s funnier-than-normal episode of The Magicians , deal with some concept of home. First, there’s Fen, who does whatever she can for her homeland, even if that that means undergoing back-breaking yard work for the supposed prophet in her dreams. There’s also Alice, who must visit her mother to cast a location spell for Zelda, the Librarian who has her own home-related desire to find her daughter in the mirror realm. And then there...

Best pie shops in the United States

March 14 is Pi Day . In the numerical format that Americans list dates where the month is first followed by the day, it’s 3/14, or 3.14, which are the first three numbers in pi. For people not currently taking a high school math class or in a math-oriented career, that’s about the extent of common knowledge about pi. Pie, on the other hand, is something we can celebrate on Pi Day as well as every other day. That extra “e” turns a conversation about a math equation into a conversation about a d...

‘The Magicians’ Returns to a Forgotten Character With “A Timeline and Place”

Episode 6 of The Magicians , “A Timeline and Place,” addresses the long festering question: what the hell is the original Penny (AKA the Penny from Timeline 40) doing ? Last time we saw him was in Season 3, where—stuck in the Afterlife branch of the Library—he had a chat with Hades that convinced him to take on the role of a Librarian in the eternal (and infernal?) institution. Thankfully, actor Arjun Gupta has remained on the show playing the Penny from Timeline 23—a more subdued, melan...

‘The Magicians’ Taps the Brakes With “Marry F–ck Kill” and “Escape From the Happy Place”

The fourth and fifth episodes of The Magicians are slower paced than the beginning of the season, allowing viewers to marinate in some under-explored relationships and to circle back to some dangling storylines. The results are mixed, but the show’s quick dialogue and unexpectedly poignant character moments make both episodes—especially Episode 5—rich fodder that fans will enjoy. “Marry Fuck Kill” The Magicians’ fourth episode, “Marry Fuck Kill,” is a detour from the main conflict...

Sixty years on, the idea of order at Pasadena’s Sequoyah School

As a child, I used to stare at the black-and-white class pictures my stepbrother and stepsister Bart and Victoria Hibbs brought back from Sequoyah School in the early 1960s. Jeez, but those kids looked smart. And not just bohemian — they looked a little wild. Not feral, mind you. They were just banging a different drum before different drums were cool. As a young parent, I used to hear the Sequoyah kids’ calls across the wonderfully crazy-quilt campus at California Boulevard and Pasadena Avenue:...

‘Fighting With My Family’ Featurette Focuses on the True Story

Wrestling With the Fact and Fiction of ‘Fighting with My Family’

It’s a given that biopics adhere to real life closely but also take creative liberties in order to (hopefully) streamline the experience for great dramatic effect within a two-hour running time. Fighting With My Family is no exception, and it is very accurate, with only a few understandably tweaked elements. Written and directed by Stephen Merchant (and based on the Channel 4 documentary of the same name that should absolutely be sought out after watching the movie and reading this), the profes...

Announcement: Let’s Help Envision Take FLYTE

Posted: 2/14/2019 | February 14th, 2019 As travelers, we constantly meet people from around the world and experience cultures and values different than our own. I think that is why we travelers tend to (generally) be more open-minded. We want to see the differences in the world. Traveling gives us a broader perspective and understanding of life, the world, the people in it, and, often most importantly, ourselves.
