Author Says The UK Educational System Is Dreary, Needs More Laughter

Michael Rosen blames the Reformation – truly. That time period was “when they thought the only way you could be virtuous was to be modest and serious, so humour was pushed aside, seen as frivolous … even dangerous. And that seeps through into education today, so there’s a slight fear of subversiveness or laughter, as well as a dismissal of it. And for some of us, humour is a means of survival.” – The Guardian (UK)

Fairy Tales for the Children of the Laborers

None As I was reading "A Fairy Tale for Tired Socialists" and other stories from Michael Rosen's thought-provoking anthology Workers' Tales: Socialist Fairy Tales, Fables, and Allegories from Great Britain, I kept reminding myself to think about the fairy tales I read as a child. The mermaid in Hans Christian Andersen 1836 The Little Mermaid, doesn't marry her prince in the original story but instead is turned into a daughter of the air (essentially sea foam) in what can be viewed as a heavy-ha...

I met up with many old friends and colleagues during the 3 days I was at the show, and especially enjoyed catching up with some I had worked with during my time at Plymouth University. One, James Bettany, is still teaching there, and we spent a good two hours together reminiscing, and exchanging news. James mentioned to me that he i...

Why the Pasadena opening of Crack Shack, Chef Richard Blais’ chicken restaurant, is something to get excited about

They know. The people who have been making the drive to Century City, Costa Mesa or even Encinitas and San Diego to get a Crack Shack fix are justly excited about the location set to open in Pasadena. The new Pasadena space, at 30 W. Green Street, is in the former site of a recording studio in Old Town. It boasts 6,000 square feet so there should be plenty of room for diners.

Stream: Cones, ‘Later’

Brothers Jonathan and Michael Rosen, working as Cones, craft airy, melodic indie-pop that doesn’t make you doubt for a second that there were Bee Gees moments in their childhood. The San Francisco-bred, L.A.-based duo today released a new dose of bedroom disco titled “Later,” a breakup song that straddles the space between recovery and regret. “I wrote ‘Later’ a few years ago when I was moving back home to California from New York,” Jonathan says. “I finished it on Highway 1. It captures that mo...
