How Empathy Can Build Better Workplace Relationships

Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Mike Ambassador Bruny. There is an interesting dynamic that can exist between leaders and those they lead. Many employees complain about their leaders, and many leaders complain about their employees. Having been in both roles and received training in various leadership and management programs, I wanted to provide some insights into things I’ve seen and experienced in hopes that leaders get more out of their employees and employees get more out of the work...

The Biggest Flaw I See in Pictures*

In one way it's curious that Henri Cartier-Bresson is known for "the decisive moment," and for things like Joel Meyerowitz's description of him darting and pirouetting through crowds like a hummingbird, wielding his Leica like a hibachi chef's knife, because it downplays the amount of time he must have spent sitting around waiting. Because as I understand it, one of his picturetaking strategies was to find a nice setting, and then wait around until something happened in it. Who knows how long he...

Whicker: Saints WR Michael Thomas, from Taft High to NFL stardom, still playing catchup

–Michael Thomas caught more passes than anyone in the NFL this season. The Saints threw 163 footballs in his direction. He caught 137. He played at Taft High. UCLA is 15 miles away. USC is 25. The recruiters drove the 101, right past his exit, seeking someone bigger and faster. Keyshawn Johnson, perhaps the most flamboyant receiver in Trojans history, is Thomas’ uncle. “If Keyshawn can’t convince USC to take him, I don’t know who can,” said Matt Kerstetter, then the coach at Taft. Thomas fell th...

Louis Posen of Van Nuys’ Hopeless Records looks back on 25 years of hard work, good times and punk rock

Hopeless Records started as a mere hobby for Los Angeles native Louis Posen, but it has turned into 25 years of blood, sweat and a whole lot of fun and punk rock music. Back in the early ’90s, Posen was a film student at Cal State Northridge and had just shot a music video for punk rock band NOFX when he was introduced to Huntington Beach band Guttermouth. The group basically dared Posen to put out its latest 7-inch, even though his only knowledge of the business side of music came from a book h...

Yob and Near-death Metal Experiences

None Riding the tram out to the suburbs of Bordeaux to talk with Yob's Mike Scheidt before their concert in 2018, I resign myself to the fizz and pop of excitatory and anxiogenic processes bustling about in my gut and brain. I'm nervous because, later, when I press 'Record' on the dictaphone I've borrowed to complete my disguise, the first thing I'll tell Mike is that I'm acting under false pretenses: I've never conducted an interview before. Blagging an interview slot just happens to be the be...

‘State Like Sleep’ Star Katherine Waterston on Balancing Indies and Blockbusters [Interview]

Over the past decade, actress Katherine Waterston has built up a solid filmography of work that had made her one of the most eclectic and reliable performers around.

What I Found at the Brocante

  Usually, after going around a brocante several tours I start to look at smalls. They never disappoint with their purpose, meaning and evident stories worn proudly for everyone to see. Honor medals are easy to find, usually given by an organization, the city or country. This one with a young girl playing music to a dear was from the 1950s. The round glass frame, is easy to find as well usually they have photos of loved ones, this one had one on both sides. Sometimes there are messages inside, ...

Lowepro and the 'T' Bags

I'm currently looking around for a camera bag again, which is, to a photographer, the equivalent of a nasty fungus in an embarrassing place that flares up from time to time: just part of the burden of our existence. Because everyone knows two things: 1.) most bags will serve, if you'll just relax and adapt and get over it. And 2.) no bag is ever just exactly right. I don't care—shop all you want—devote your life to it—you'll never find it. It's not out there. That's the whole gestalt with camera...
