Lee, who we interviewed about her book “‘Two Trees Make a Forest,’ also edits the nature journal the Willowherb Review and is an advocate for diversity in nature writing. “We can have different ways of experiencing the natural world and I think we need to hold space for all of them,” she says. “This multiplicity of perspectives is really valuable.” We asked her to recommend five nature writers to read, and here ar...

How exploring the hikes and waterfalls of Taiwan connected this writer to her family’s immigration story

After a number of attempts trying to fictionalize her family history, nature writer Jessica J. Lee found that her academic work in environmental history actually helped unlock how to tell the story. “I had been trying for many years to write this story of my grandparents,” said Lee, the author of “Two Trees Make a Forest: Travels Among Taiwan’s Mountains and Coasts in Search of My Family’s Past,” which mixes family history, memoir and nature writing.

Closed Disneyland a $5 billion hit to Southern California economy, Cal State Fullerton says

The pandemic’s shuttering of Disneyland has cost the Southern California economy $3 billion already and will cost it another $2 billion through March 2021 if the theme park remains closed, according to a Cal State Fullerton forecast. Anil Puri, director of the university’s Woods Center for Economic Analysis and Forecasting, says the school’s economists made those estimates based on work sponsored by Disneyland a year ago that attempted to quantify the resort’s economic footprint.

Watch an Epic Drum Battle, Pitting a 9-Year-Old Girl Against Foo Fighter Dave Grohl

Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, formerly of Nirvana, and Nandi Bushell, an Ipswich elementary schooler, have something in common besides their incredible command of the drums. By all appearances, both seem to have benefited from being reared by grounded, encouraging parents. Nandi, at 10, likely has a few more years under her folks’ roof despite her growing renown—she’s jammed with Lenny Kravitz, gone viral in last year’s Argos Christmas advert, and most recently, matched Grohl beat for beat in ...

Madonna's "Justify My Love" with only Lenny Kravitz's backing vocals is excellent mutant pop

"Justify My Love" is a 1990 trip-hop tune by Lenny Kravitz and Ingrid Chavez with spoken vocals by Madonna and soulful humming and moaning by Kravitz. Someone mixed a version of the track sans Madonna and with Kravitz's vocals brought to the forefront and the result is a compelling piece of "outsider pop," as described by bil-sabab on r/ObscureMedia. image: transformation of chrisweger's original photo (CC BY-SA 2.0)

10 Times Zoe Kravitz and Lisa Bonet Took Twinning to a Whole New Level

In Hulu’s streaming series reboot of High Fidelity, actor and musician Zoe Kravitz stars as record store owner and music nerd Rob, in a gender-flipped revision of John Cusack’s role from the original 2000 film.
