I had “a strong suspicion that I’d done my best work and anything more would be inferior. I was by this time no longer in possession of the mental vitality or the verbal energy or the physical fitness needed to mount and sustain a large creative attack of any duration on a complex structure as […]
Since there is no such thing as a truly literal translation — no two languages’ grammars match, their vocabularies diverge, even punctuation has a different weight — there can be no such thing as a translation that is not “creative.” And while most of us translators think of ourselves as “faithful,” definitions of faithfulness can […]
"We procure energy so that the organism can be perpetuated, but then we do something very important and almost always missed, which is hoard energy. We need to maintain positive energy balances, something that goes beyond what we need right now because that’s what ensures the future. What’s so beautiful about homeostasis is that it’s […]
The most striking modern building in the capital of Norway proudly identifies itself as the Oslo Opera House. Yet a more democratically accessible building in this hereditary kingdom would be difficult to imagine. When I paid my first visit last year, young people were dangling their feet in the water from its roof. Yes, its […]
Well, Netflix might have exaggerated a little bit in the second season of The Crown. "Well, that's nice.... It's a lot of bullst."
Very well, partly because of Amazon and Netflix. "This is no longer Mr. Weinstein’s freewheeling festival, the one he blasted into the public consciousness with eye-popping deals to bring male-gaze entries like Sex, Lies and Videotape and Reservoir Dogs to theaters. Sundance is now a prime showcase for women — films directed, produced and written […]
By all outward appearances, she had a successful start, quickly putting her own stamp on the company. End-of-the-year wrap-ups in The Dallas Morning News and other local performing arts publications cited Bridget Moore's contributions to the local dance scene as among the most important in 2017.
In 2013, Google decided to test its hiring hypothesis by crunching every bit and byte of hiring, firing, and promotion data accumulated since the company’s incorporation in 1998. Project Oxygen shocked everyone by concluding that, among the eight most important qualities of Google’s top employees, STEM expertise comes in dead last. The seven top characteristics […]
Moses will be remembered as an L.A. art world fixture, one of the city's most productive and experimental artists of the last half-century. He had a restless romance with abstract painting that sparked a perpetually evolving body of work, leading him to dub himself “The Mutator.” Moses formed the “Cool School” of artists — who […]
$75 million may seem modest compared with the $1.5 billion the Michael Bloomberg has given Hopkins over the years, until you realize the money is flowing to the school's small and underfunded philosophy department. That money will go a long way.
The roots for the alignment between life processes and quality of feeling can be traced to the workings of homeostasis within the common ancestors to endocrine systems, immune systems, and nervous systems. They go back in the mists of early life. The part of the nervous system responsible for surveying and responding to the interior, […]
Sales in 2017 had been buoyed by the success of children’s books by David Williams as well as JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Non-book items such greetings cards, stationery and educational toys have proved a success with browsers and now account for 10% of turnover.
"What’s great about the art selfie craze is that it efficiently harnesses other, less blatant, but still very zeitgeisty tributaries to the culture: irony in the face of high art; camera-conscious vanity; the obsession with statistical measurement (each match is given a percentage rating); online flirtation (if Google says you look like a Titian, you’re […]
Countertenor Philippe Jaroussky said his academy "was inspired by ambitious initiatives such as El Sistema, a program founded in 1975 that has provided hundreds of thousands of Venezuelan children with a music education, and the Demos project in France."
"After initially publishing the instruction book The Folksinger’s Guide to the 12-String Guitar as Played by Leadbelly with musician Pete Seeger in 1965, Professor Lester went on to write essays, fiction, nonfiction, and children’s books. Among the latter was 1968’s To Be a Slave, which was named a Newbery Honor Book – a finalist for […]
The fairies in the latest production of Midsummer Night's Dream speak Te Reo, one of New Zealand's official languages, for about 20 percent of the production. "Online reviews left about the Pop-up Globe performance said the move was 'disrespectful' and 'bastardising' Shakespeare and confusing for audiences. Other theatre goers have made their equally damning views […]
After Monday? Probably not; and the National Zoo webcams will also close down as the Zoo closes (personnel will still care for the animals, however). "The Smithsonian announced that it has 'funds available to keep the museums open on Monday. We will update this announcement as needed.'"
The Producers Guild Awards loved Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water, but the Screen Actors Guild (where women headlined, and wore pink instead of black in reference to the weekend's many marches) went for Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri.
Community theatre, of course. Studi: "It was kind of a combination of the aftereffect of Vietnam in a way, in that — I won't say I was addicted or a junkie of adrenaline — but, you know, I tried a number of fairly dangerous things just to kick that off in my brain again.... […]
Some good things have happened since the near total shutdown in December: "The musicians have a contract that extends through August, and interim executive director Karina Bharne is in place. In addition, the original board, known as the Symphony Society of San Antonio is back at the helm with a new chairwoman, Kathleen Weir Vale. […]
