'Vita Nostra' Is a Tantalizing Fantasy That Forces Us to Question Our Own Humanity

Julia Meitov Hersey, translator of Vita Nostra, describes her effort as a work of love, undertaken so that other English language readers will be able to enjoy the delights the Russian-language book first brought her. The book has been described as an "anti-Harry Potter novel", and insofar as it offers a darker, more mysterious and philosophical version of the 'magical recruit' trope, this is true. But it's far and away a very different beast from J. K. Rowling's celebrated series.The story foll...

My Top 10 Hostels in Sydney in 2019

Updated: 1/9/2019 | January 9th, 2019 Hostels in Sydney are expensive. Since I started visiting the city, I’ve seen hostel prices skyrocket as just the cost of living in Australia has gone up. Even when you factor in the favorable exchange rate right now, it’s just expensive to get a bed here, especially at some of the larger, more upscale hostels. However, with a little planning, you can make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. The cheapest hostels in Sydney are found in the K...

Meeting Online Tea Friends

I’ve long since talked to lots of people online about tea.  That relates most to writing a blog about tea, and being an admin for an international themed FB tea group , and now for a second , and participation in forums or a sub-Reddit and such. That has extended into real life more lately, with three people just visiting here in Bangkok.  I’ll use that example to lead into how value-oriented purchasing could enable tea swaps. Linking the ideas is a stretch, but it should work.  To keep...

Brits in Hot Weather #10: Swindle, Team Picture, Sasha, I Cried Wolf + Dirty Nice

None Welcome to the tenth edition of Brits in Hot Weather. I must admit that when I proposed the idea for this feature, I was a little unsure whether I would be able to find five British artists to feature every couple of weeks. Now, here we are having featured a whopping 50 of them, and I could just as easily have featured a few hundred more. It just goes to show that British music is indeed thriving. There are so many brilliant, exciting and dedicated artists around today and we hope that you...

Why People Are Naming Their Babies Ivanka & Melania

Well this we did not expect. More parents are naming their babies after the first lady and first daughter, with "Ivanka" having surged in popularity by 362% and "Melania" by 227% since 2015, according to an AreaVibes review of Social Security Administration data.

Michelle Obama tells Meghan Markle: 'Don't be in a hurry' to launch ambitious projects

It is surprisingly prescient advice given the slew of recent allegations made about the Duchess of Sussex’s forthright demeanor and demands. And if there is any truth in the anecdotes that have been tumbling forth from behind palace walls detailing “ghastly” rows with her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, temper tantrums over tiara choices and staff reduced to tears, she may well take note. Michelle Obama, the former American First Lady and a long-term friend of her husband, the Duke of S...

The Arc of Rick Grimes and How the Very Idea That Inspired ‘The Walking Dead’ Fatally Undermined It

Endings are natural. In its zeal to depict a post-apocalyptic world where no one is safe, The Walking Dead has killed off a lot of characters, so on the surface, it would seem to understand that idea very well. With its revolving door of cast members and showrunners, the show has superficially embraced change, all the while maintaining a certain underlying status quo. When news broke this summer that the show’s star, Andrew Lincoln, would be leaving The Walking Dead in its ninth season, we...

Lady Gaga Fans Are Trying to Sabotage ‘Venom’ Online
