The Illustrated Version of “Alice’s Restaurant”: Watch Arlo Guthrie’s Thanksgiving Counterculture Classic

Alice’s Restaurant. It’s now a Thanksgiving classic, and something of a tradition around here. Recorded in 1967, the 18+ minute counterculture song recounts Arlo Guthrie’s real encounter with the law, starting on Thanksgiving Day 1965. As the long song unfolds, we hear all about how a hippie-bating police officer, by the name of William “Obie” Obanhein, arrested Arlo for littering. (Cultural footnote: Obie previously posed for several Norman Rockwell paintings, including the well-known p...

The Annual Reese Family Christmas Letter - 2019

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from the Reese family! I’m sorry to report that we weren’t able to achieve our goal of teaching our dogs to bark the notes of The Twelve Days of Christmas. I had this vision of how awesome it would be for the UPS guy to ring the doorbell and have our poodle and Great Dane serenade them with a Christmas song. Maybe next year. Here’s a little rundown of 2019 at the Reese household: Kylee is a sophomore at Hurricane High. I don’t know what kind of ti...

Bob Timberlake. Artist and conservationist.

I was anticipating the morning. I had this planned for a couple of weeks. I was going to meet someone at the top of their field and get to have a one on one with the gentlemen. The previous day, he was on a quail hunt. His granddaughter happens to be a crack shot herself. I had done some extra studying on his life to add to my already near-fanboy knowledge. Bob Timberlake holds one of his paintings from the Keep America Beautiful campaign. (Bill Howard) He owns a...

The 15 Best Superman Comics You Need To Read

Like the utopian Federation of "Star Trek," Superman is an aspirational character. He's a fantasy that began in 1938, when two second-generation Jewish immigrants, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, debuted Superman in the pages of "Action Comics" #1. Audiences quickly latched on to the hero, who despite all of his fantastic powers was still kind, understanding, and heroic. Sure, the myth of Superman is a dream -- but fiction should sometimes dream a little.Despite starring in numerous movies and TV ...

Best Towns in the Berkshires, Massachusetts

One thing that surprised me was how tough it was to find information on the best towns in the Berkshires. Sure, I had lots of information on things to do in the Berkshires, the best places to eat and stay, but almost no information on the towns themselves.

Ruby Bridges: the six-year-old who defied a mob and desegregated her school

In 1960, she walked past hateful protesters to become the first Black child at a Louisiana school – and was then taught alone for a year. She discusses fear, forbearance and her fight for a better futureThis year, Ruby Bridges saw some newly discovered video footage of her six-year-old self and was terrified for her. The footage was from 14 November 1960, a day that shaped the course of Bridges’ life and – it is no exaggeration to say – American history. Not that she was aware of it at the time....

How Norman Rockwell Used Photographs to Create His Famous Paintings: See Side-by-Side Comparisons

More than 40 years after Norman Rockwell’s death, the question of whether his paintings are realistic or unrealistic remains open for debate. On one hand, critical opinion has long dismissed his Saturday Evening Post-adorning visions of American life as sheerest fantasy. “A little girl with a black eye, an elderly woman saying grace with her grandson, a boy going to war: Rockwellian scenes represent a certain sentimental America — an ideal America, or at least Rockwell’s ideal,” says a 2009 NPR...

Kevin Feige on How ‘WandaVision’ and Other Marvel Disney+ Shows Will Expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe [Interview]

Kevin Feige couldn’t have anticipated back in 2017 that the little TV experiment that he dreamed up – a send-up of classic sitcoms revolving around Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany‘s Vision – would become the auspicious introduction to Marvel Studios’ “Phase 4,” the next era of stories after the decade-long “Infinity Saga.” But perhaps it’s appropriate that “Marvel Studios’ first foray into longform narrative storytelling TV is an homage to TV, [and] is something that could not...

How to Have a Merry Christmas — Even in 2020!

I wrote this originally for The Stream, but I’d like to share it with you. It’s about being able to celebrate even during this hard year — or even more so, just because of the hard year it’s been. It’s Christmastime… Christmastime 2020, that is. So, who feels like celebrating? We’ve got politicians telling us to stay home and do the holiday alone. At least the year’s almost over, and good riddance to it. I’ll have to admit, though, the coming year weighs heavily on me. Joe Biden will take the oa...

How Jell-O went from a holiday dinner staple to having slipping sales

Jell-O became a beloved household staple in the U.S. by printing its own recipes and advertisements.

However, its sales have fallen year after year as eating trends like natural foods and veganism continue to gain popularity with consumers. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

To me, being outdoors mitigates...
