Husband of woman murdered in Seal Beach salon massacre finds friend in attorney who defended her killer

The ink on Paul Wilson’s right arm tells a story of love and loss, of death and redemption. There’s a conch shell for Seal Beach, where his wife of 26 years, Christy, and seven others were shot to death by a deranged acquaintance angry over child custody issues. There’s a palm tree for Christy’s favorite Palm Desert restaurant. A fallen hourglass marks the day the bullets flew on Oct. 12, 2011, with eight birds ascending. Also rising up Wilson’s muscular forearm is a Phoenix taking flight. If hi...

Looking at Game of Thrones, in Old Norse

The endtime is coming. The night is very long indeed; sun and moon have vanished. From the east march the frost-giants, bent on the destruction of all that is living. From the south come fiery powers, swords gleaming brightly. A dragon flies overhead. And, terrifyingly, the dead are walking too. Heroes are ready and waiting; representing the best of mankind, they have trained in anticipation of the greatest of battles. Now the two mighty forces lock together in apocalyptic combat. Who will emerg...

In interview with Polly Graham, Artistic Director of Longborough Festival Opera

What links Wagner’s Das Rheingold, Donizetti’s Anna Bolena, Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Cavalli’s La Calisto? It sounds like the sort of question Paul Gambaccini might pose to contestants on BBC Radio 4’s music quiz, Counterpoint.

‘Tolkien’ Review: An Intimate, Romantic Origin Story of a Literary Titan

Tolkien: it’s much better than it looks! That’s my one sentence review of Fox Searchlight’s new biopic about John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, the author of novels like The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and the father of modern fantasy writing, but I’ll devote several more to explaining why it’s worth your time. If you’re anything like me – someone who loves Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, but has only read a small number of Tolkien’s books – you may have found yourself either shruggin...

Onstage (And Partly Under It) With A Metropolitan Opera Prompter

“Before each performance Carol Isaac climbs into her little box from the orchestra pit and raises her seat just enough to be seen by the singers but not the audience.” It’s tight quarters in there, especially for a six-hour Wagner opera. But she and her seven colleagues in the job at the Met love the work. And the singers love them. (includes video) – NY1 (New York City)

Having Reverence for Our Own Safety

The dictionary describes safety as the condition of being protected from either danger or injury. Being safe can refer to either physical or psychological safety and is a way to preserve one’s own well-being as well as that of the community and the world at large. The concept of safety is often addressed in the various schools of psychology — whether they be Freudian, Jungian, Behavioristic, Humanistic, or Transpersonal.  The late Abraham Maslow, the “Father of Humanistic Psychology,” h...

Review: Graco TrueCoat 360 airless paint sprayer

The Graco TrueCoat 360 airless paint sprayer [Amazon link] is perfect for quickly blasting fences, decks and items of furniture out in the yard. But it—and other devices like it—are bad news indoors, creating a fog of paint that demands such perfect taping-off of everything that little time is saved and much hassle is risked. I got one to brighten up my dingy basement. With a vast surface area in porous rafters and beams to prime and paint, the backbreaking tedium of rollers and brushes was too ...

‘Game of Thrones’ Cinematographer Defends the Dark Lighting Choices of “The Long Night”

Even if you don’t watch Game of Thrones, you may have heard about “The Long Night,” the biggest battle in the history of the HBO series…and one that many viewers said they couldn’t see. Literally. Rather than stage a traditional war scene, director Miguel Sapochnik chose to cloak much of the conflict in darkness and shadow, pushing many consumer-grade televisions to the brink and leading to ongoing online arguments about whether or not this choice heightens the tension or diminishes it. And now...

A quick look at how Series A and seed rounds have ballooned in recent years, fueled by top investors

Wing, an eight-year-old, Silicon Valley venture firm co-founded by veteran VCs Peter Wagner and Gaurav Garg, produces interesting research about its own industry every now and then, based on smaller data sets than firms like PitchBook or CB Insights tend to use.

Bruins’ 2018-19 Regular Season Report Card

The precedent for success generated by the Boston Bruins last season was exceeded in 2018-19. Thanks to the sensational play of their stalwarts and continued development of their young guns, the Bruins tied for second in the league in points. The achievement didn’t come without adversity. From the backend out, the Black and Gold were ravaged by man-games lost to injury, including those to each regular member of their defensive corps. Up front, two-thirds of the team’s top line missed signifi...
