Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

William Saliba’s former teammate the latest to question Arsenal over treatment of defender

Saliba shines William Saliba, a 27 million pound signing in 2019 from French side Saint-Etienne, is yet to play a minute of senior football for Arsenal.

10 Easy Pieces: Traditional Bridge Faucets

With a muscular brass body that stands a few inches above the counter, the two-hole-mount bridge faucet is the first design to blend hot and cold water into a single spout. At present, the bridge faucet is the cherry on top when it comes to any Shaker and period kitchen. Here are our absolute favorites (note that for our purposes, all are of the deck-mount variety, but many are also available as a wall-mo...

Visionary architect, curator, and big wave surfer Francois Perrin

Architect, curator, surfer, knight of the French government, partner, father, son, brother, and dear friend to many, Francois Perrin died on Monday in Ventura County, close to a favorite wave. He was from Paris but had been in Los Angeles for decades so was simultaneously both French and Californian. I really have no words sufficient for this so will let Alissa Walker’s tribute on Curbed LA stand. It deserves a full read but I’ve included some excerpts and quotes below. ‘He was a center of gr...

Also known as CdV, carte de visites followed the early pioneering photographic techniques such as daguerreotype and ambrotype, which were expensive and difficult to reproduce. Cartes de visites were born from calling cards, which bore the owner’s name and usually an emblem, a...

7 Videos of French Vocal Groups

I love French vocalese groups that take on jazz of the 1950s. There's something about hearing the lyrics (in many cases written by Jon Hendricks) with a Parisian feel. Here are seven video clips of formidable French vocal groups in the style of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross: Here are the Blue Stars in 1956 singing George Shearing's Lullaby of Birdland, with Christiane Legrand in front at the opening singing the high notes... Here's Les Doubles Six in 1960 singing Quincy Jones's Meet B.B.... H...
