Recommended reading: The Forgery of Venus, by Michael Gruber

Michael Gruber's combines art history, criminal mischief, and the sleaziness of the contemporary art gallery business to deliver a terrifically fun thriller-esque novel. The main character, Chaz Wilmot, is an extremely talented but frustrated and depressed magazine illustrator. For no special reason, he volunteers as a human guinea pig in a medical research study to test the effects of Salvia divinorum, a powerful, short-duration psychedelic drug that causes him to imagine he's living the lif...

STUDIO 54 – THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES

STUDIO 54 – THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES Studio 54 was a rare moment in time. Words don’t do it justice. In the photo: Bethann, Halston, Bianca, Liza, Andy, Putassa. CHAPTER 5 STUDIO 54 – THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES It was “the only” time, and for sure, the best years of my life. Though it’s still not clear when or how, but at some point, I began running with the Beautiful People (BPs). I knew this to be true because only the most beautiful and interesting people sashayed passed the velvet ropes of Stud...

'It’s a place where they try to destroy you': why concentration camps are still with us

Mass internment camps did not begin or end with the Nazis – today they are everywhere from China to Europe to the US. How can we stop their spread? By Daniel TrillingAt the start of the 21st century, the following things did not exist. In the US, a large network of purpose-built immigration prisons, some of which are run for profit. In western China, “political education” camps designed to hold hundreds of thousands of people, supported by a high-tech surveillance system. In Syria, a prison comp...

Alabama disaster plan would deny treatment to those with "severe mental retardation"

: Some state plans make clear that people with cognitive issues are a lower priority for lifesaving treatment. For instance, Alabama’s plan says that “persons with severe mental retardation, advanced dementia or severe traumatic brain injury may be poor candidates for ventilator support.” Another part says that “persons with severe or profound mental retardation, moderate to severe dementia, or catastrophic neurological complications such as persistent vegetative state are unlikely candidate...

This 103-year-old philosopher's to-do list will get you through self-isolation

Like everybody else, Romanian philosopher Mihai Sora is stuck inside. He is keeping busy for a 103-year-old man, and keeping the world up to date on his indoor adventures with Facebook. His to-do list is impressive, but not so impressive it can't be used by most people. The social isolation necessitated by COVID-19 is difficult for a lot of people. Between being mostly stuck inside, having reduced contact with other people, and the creeping boredom that comes after you've done everything on your...

After Putin's Big Fail, Russia Braces for COVID-19 Onslaught

Only days after the Kremlin assured the Russians that the coronavirus pandemic was under control, Moscow’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin told Russian President Vladimir Putin that “the momentum is high and a serious situation is unfolding.” Contrary to the previously reported low rate of infection, "the real number of those who are sick is significantly higher,” Sobyanin said. He added that the number of tests conducted to date has been extremely low “and no one on earth knows the real picture.”Russia S...

Jesse Eisenberg plays Marcel Marceau in ‘Resistance’ and home buyer in ‘Vivarium’

When Jesse Eisenberg calls to talk about his two new movies, “Resistance” and “Vivarium,” he laughs and is quick to agree that the two films would make for a truly bizarre double feature. In the World War II drama “Resistance,” Eisenberg plays the famed French mime Marcel Marceau as a young man working with the underground resistance against the Nazis who occupied his country. In “Vivarium,” he plays Tom opposite Imogen Poots as his girlfriend Gemma, a young couple looking to buy a first home wh...

Wow. Today went by in a flash.Actually let me rewind a bit to last night... and review a few things that took place on Sunday night, following the last blog post.K.C. and I watched Wrestlemania 30 re-runs on ESPN and then Westworld on HBO. Westworld is so damn confusing. I don't know if I can do any more of it.I will keep watching, but I can see myself giving up at some point in the not too distant future. I just don't have the brain cells to dedicate to this nonsense. And to be honest, I miss t...

Russia Swore It Whipped the Virus, and Fox and CNN Bought It

As the world reels from the novel coronavirus pandemic, Russia is doing its best to turn global turmoil into propaganda fodder. To date, a country of 146 million people straddling Europe and Asia and that has a great deal of commerce with those two great epicenters of the disease reports only 438 confirmed coronavirus cases and no deaths. One previously disclosed fatality has been dismissed by authorities as attributable to other causes. But according to official statistics from Russian state me...

The 1978 Project: Part IV

The 1978 Project is a deep dive into the cinema of a single year (guess which one!) The chosen year is mostly arbitrary, but it's been a fun experience so far. I'm still working through a backlog of films watched earlier in the year, so these reviews are bound to be a bit fuzzy. I've made pretty good progress so far, and am hoping to do the usual Movie Awards and Top 10 sometime this summer. For now, here are six 1978 flicks, these perhaps less obscure than the movies from the last recap: Deat...

"Almost no one in my personal or professional world would 'earn' care if the United States were to come to a scenario like Italy.

Secret bunker from WWII found in Scotland

We can’t discuss eugenics without looking at its atrocious history

Andrew Sabisky, a UK government adviser, recently resigned over comments supporting eugenics. Around the same time, the evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins – best known for his book The Selfish Gene – provoked controversy when tweeting that, while eugenics is morally deplorable, it “would work”. Eugenics can be described as the science and practice of improving the human race through the selection of “good” hereditary traits. Eugenics inevitably brings to mind the atrocities committed by the ...
