Why some value safety, others value risk

No one has ever crossed the Antarctic by themselves and without help from other people or engines. To me, this is very unsurprising and uninteresting. No one (outside of superhero movies) has ever shrunk themselves to the size of an ant, or turned back time by causing the earth to rotate backwards either. Big deal. But to Colin O’Brady (a 33-year-old American adventure athlete) and Louis Rudd (a 49-year-old British Army Captain) the fact that no one has ever crossed the Antarctic unsupported is ...

‘Crashing’ Creator and Star Pete Holmes Discusses Last Night’s Timely Episode, “MC, Middle, and Headliner” [Interview]

Pete Holmes is more successful in season 3 of Crashing, but not much happier. The generally happy-go-lucky comedian is playing for churches and getting laughs, but he’s not performing like himself, worsening his struggle to find his voice or sense of self in the comedy world. Holmes – the character – hits some professional and personal lows this season. While the Judd Apatow-produced series often shows the joy and camaraderie in Holmes’ standup career, it’s usually about failure and not always ...

‘Pet Sematary’ Trailer Breakdown: Stephen King’s Tale of Terror Gets a Major Change

The new Pet Sematary trailer is here, and it’s fantastic. But more than that, it reveals the filmmakers have deviated in a major way from Stephen King‘s novel. And yet…the change looks like it works. If anything, it looks like it’s turned the film into something even more disturbing. In the Pet Sematary trailer breakdown below, I’ll highlight some of the major changes from King’s book, the 1989 film, and this new version.

The Île-Saint-Louis church

The Saint-Louis island, Île Saint-Louis, was once actually two small islands, one has been named Île Notre-Dame since the 9th century, the other, smaller one, was named Île aux Vaches, the “cow island”. Both islands were mainly used for cattle, stocking of wood… It was only during the 17th century that the island started to be developed. Henry IV, who died in 1610, had launched the idea, but the real development took place during the reign of his son, Louis XIII (1601-43), supported by his m...

Plaques, plaques...

Walking along the streets, along the banks of Île Saint-Louis, you will probably find one of the world’s highest concentration of commemorative plaques. Almost all the buildings are from the middle of the 17 th century, most of them with the brothers Louis and François Le Vau as architects. You will find most of the names referred to on the plaques on Wikipedia (I “stole” only the portraits), but not quite all. There are names like Camille Claudel, Honoré Daumier, George Pompidou,...

A Deeper Disney Discourse on Song

None It's a recurring joke that Disney films have all sorts of double entendres and hidden messages, often sexual in nature. What most people don't appreciate is just how far this textual duplicity goes, and how many layers of meaning can be revealed in something as simple as one of their catchy sing-alongs.In this piece, we'll be looking at Disney songs through the lens of hardcore hermeneutics -- analyzing not just their surface message, but the deepest, most heartfelt and often craziest mean...
