National Register of Historic Places Often Ignores Slavery’s Significance on American South

(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) — Antebellum Southern plantations were built on the backs of enslaved people, and many of those plantations hold places of honor on the National Register of Historic Places — but don’t look for many mentions of slavery in the government’s official record of places with historic significance. The register’s written entries on the plantations tend to say almost nothing about the enslaved people who picked the cotton and tobacco or cut the sugar cane that paid for ornate hom...

Los Angeles’ First Olympics Changed It Forever

What sort of city did spectators, athletes and journalists see when they arrived in Los Angeles in the summer of 1932? It was, to be sure, not the same shambling village that had bid for and won the Olympics nine years before. LA’s population had doubled, to 1,470,516, during the decade. The dusty pueblo had burgeoned into a world center for moviemaking, oil drilling, and citrus production. No fewer than six daily newspapers covered the region, all now boisterously heralding the Olympic Games. O...

The Process Genre

From Duke University Press and author Salomé Aguilera Skvirsky comes what looks like an intriguing book on the beloved phenomenon of “how things are made” media — you know, things like “how to” cooking videos and IKEA instructions — The Process Genre: Cinema and the Aesthetic of Labor (at Amazon). From the book’s introduction: Chapter 3, “Aestheticizing Labor,” argues that the category of labor is central to the process genre. In my account, the process genre is, in effect, always symptomatical...

Hurricanes/Whalers With 100-Point Seasons

The Hartford Whalers/Carolina Hurricanes franchise has had its fair share of iconic moments over its 40-year history. They’ve gone through plenty of highs and lows – a relocation, a Stanley Cup victory, and a few too many elongated stretches of mediocrity. Related: The WHA – A Look Back at the Upstart League The NHL adopted the Whalers in 1979, who then became the Hurricanes in 1997, and through those four decades, dozens of outstanding people have represented the franchise.

The 5 Best Moments From the Confusing, Chaotic, Cathartic 2020 Oscars

Like every year, Sunday’s 2020 Oscars ceremony was a night of overwhelming highs and abysmal lows. But Parasite is now a four-time Oscar winner, so things are (mostly) right in the world. Because of that, we’ll only be counting down the highs of this year’s host-less Oscars ceremony, which ran the gamut of emotions from confusing, to chaotic, to cathartic. Here are our highlights of the 92nd Academy Awards.

The Best, Worst and Most Chaotic Moments of the 2020 Oscars

Just like any great film, the 92nd Annual Academy Awards saved its best and biggest twist for the end. Parasite, the Korean class warfare thriller, pulled out a stunning upset over 1917, sending the crowd into euphoric disbelief. The win capped off a frenzied and unpredictable night that, while filled with questionable decision-making, showed that the Academy Awards might genuinely be making a concerted effort to change.

Trump's disturbing 'celebration'

The tip-off was the fake, breathy voice -- call it Mister Rogers-on the-dark side -- that the President uses whenever he is enraged but wants us to think he's calm. He smiles and leans forward, and then spews venom in a treacly tone. Although he called it a "celebration" of his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial, Trump's hourlong ramble in the White House on Thursday sounded more like a recriminating diatribe.

Twelve Films That Highlight the Best in Humanity

This year’s Oscar nominees for Best Picture tend to emphasize the worst in humanity. For example, Joker is about the descent into homicidal madness. Jojo Rabbit is about one of the worst events in human history, the Nazi Holocaust. 1917 is about another catastrophe, World War One. In each of those films, however, we can still find elements of humanity’s best qualities: heroism, growth, fortitude, and more. Those qualities are the focus of our own list of this year’s Greater Goodies, our awar...
