The Year That Westworld Takes Place May Have Been Pinpointed

After last night’s Westworld finale, HBO has dropped a huge – possibly unintentional, probably not – clue as to the show’s time period.

Spoilers for Westworld Season 1 ahead.

The official Westworld website holds the clue. As outlined by Thisinsider.com, fans who signed up to the Westworld mailing list were sent an email about a security alert after last night’s episode, prompting them to head to the Delos Security panel for an important message. Within the email, several letters were grayed out to spell  “reverie,” a nod to last night’s episode.

Bethenny Frankel Proves She Has an Eye for Art and Tiny Swimwear at Art Basel Miami Beach

While art collectors from around the world are crowding Miami this week for the annual Art Basel Miami Beach fair, Bethenny Frankel is taking advantage of the empty beach.

The Real Housewives of New York star, 46, flew south for the winter — or a long weekend at least — and has been spotted chilling on the white sand and looking undeniably flawless in a pair of rather tiny bikinis. But the New Yorker has been taking her sunshine with a side of high culture. In addition to posting a beach selfie and a poolside scene on Instagram, she shared a photo of “Bronze Collection,” a trio of sculptures of Sanrio characters including Hello Kitty, My Melody and Miffy, by artist Tom Sachs, which is currently on display at the W Hotel South Beach.

RELATED: Real Housewives of New York‘s Bethenny Frankel Lists Her Tribeca Apartment for $ 6.95 Million

The Skinny Girl founder may very well be hunting for some pieces for a new home. She sold her 3,600-square-foot apartment in Manhattan’s celeb-studded Tribeca neighborhood, which she once shared with ex Jason Hoppy. The home was a sticking point in the former couple’s drawn-out divorce, which was settled in July 2016. The apartment was listed for $ 6.95 with Douglas Elliman realtor — and Frankel’s fellow Bravo star, Fredrik Eklund, who appears on Million Dollar Listing New York — and sold in just one day.

“I sold @bethennyfrankel’s Tribeca loft at 195 Hudson at FULL ASK of $ 6.95M in just ONE DAY,” Eklund writes on a post shared on his Instagram in October, adding, “Congrats, love.”

One other item Frankel had her eye on at Art Basel won’t likely fit in a new NYC apartment, regardless of the square footage. “How abt this ride?” she captions her Instagram post of a rather snazzy white car, outfitted in zig-zags, that she spotted in the Magic City. Her followers on the social media site weren’t quite as enthused. But if any RHONY fans spot these distinctive wheels in Manhattan next week, they’ll certainly know who’s inside.

Martin Greenfield Files Lawsuit Against Brooks Brothers

There’s a bespoke battle brewing.
Martin Greenfield Clothiers Ltd. has filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Brooks Brothers, charging that the retailer broke its manufacturing agreement with the Brooklyn-based tailor for its Golden Fleece made-to-measure collection.
According to a suit filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York in Kings County on Monday, Brooks Brothers unilaterally terminated its exclusive manufacturing agreement with Martin Greenfield on Nov. 1, 2014, “without adhering to the one-year notice of termination stipulated in the agreement.”
As a result, the lawsuit alleges, Greenfield sustained significant loss of revenue and other costs, “such as inability to notify its union labor force of the changed circumstances and reduce its manufacturing capability, as well as seek other work to meet its expenses.”
The suit is seeking $ 1.9 million in compensatory damages, lost revenue and other damages, according to Mark E. Seitelman, Greenfield’s attorney.
In response to a request for comment, Brooks Brothers said: “We do not comment on legal matters.”
According to Seitelman, after Brooks Brothers purchased the Southwick manufacturing facility in Massachusetts in 2007, it made clear that it eventually intended to bring the manufacturing in-house. However, the plant was not ready and so Brooks Brothers continued to work with Greenfield on

Donatella Versace Hosts Book Signing at Harrods in London

DOTING ON DONATELLA: A crowd of Versace-clad fans headed to Harrods Monday afternoon to meet Donatella Versace at the signing of her book “Versace.”
The designer didn’t keep her admirers waiting, arriving promptly at 1 p.m. to greet 100 men and women, with some decked in the brand’s boisterous apparel. Some shoppers started gathering as early as 11 a.m., as only the first 50 customers who visited the boutique would have a chance to meet briefly with Versace and to have their book signed and picture taken.
Dressed in head-to-toe black , she sat behind a desk inside the Versace boutique in the International Designer room of the Knightsbridge retailer.
“I have always created stories through images, in both collections and advertising campaigns, and I’ve always been in charge of the image-making for Versace,” she said. “The book highlights this aspect of my creative process.”
Versace said working on the book took about two years and added it was difficult to choose from the various images shot by numerous photographers she has worked with. She also insisted that the book feature lots of pictures of Audrey — her beloved Jack Russell.
“I love the first chapter,” said Versace, about her favorite part of the book.

“Since I launched, I have always been inspired by interiors,” said Adam Lippes, as he was showing his pre-fall collection. This time around, it was great Victorian rooms: the animal prints, the velvets, the murals on the walls.
Take, for instance, a silk burnout velvet with Lurex metallic jacquard leopard shirtdress, or a landscape mural jacquard miniskirt, both of which exuded Lippes’ maximalist premise with the contemporary ease for which his collections are known.
On the other side of the spectrum, which Lippes refers to as “ath-luxury,” he offered elevated versions of ath-leisure. Standouts included a silk cashmere sweatsuit with leg o’ mutton sleeves and a silky velvet pajamalike racer-back and trousers.

Bad Whisky

Bad Whisky


This is the new edition of a cult classic released at a time when the industry is once more addressing the problem of defining what constitutes Scotch whisky. This is a unique insight into the Victorian scandal which raged at the end of the 19th century surrounding the adulteration of whisky in public houses throughout the UK. Returning to contemporary press reports and Hansard, Edward Burns masterfully unravels the scandal which eventually resulted in laws being passed which created safeguards for what is now known the world over as Scotch. In 1872 Scotland’s spirituous reputation as a purveyor of fine Scotch whisky was shattered when it was discovered that some public house whisky contained poison. The extent of adulteration was widespread with additives such as meths, shellac gum, sulphuric acid, and boot polish all being used to pass off spirits as ‘Scotch whisky’. The North British Daily Mail took up the fight against the practice when, out of 30 samples of ‘whisky’ taken out of public houses, only two were found to be the real thing. With some of the most prominent figures in Scottish public life joining the fray, the battle was on to clear up Scotch. Set against a worldwide background of gross food and drink adulteration that saw the poorer classes slowly poisoned by what they ingested, the results of the in-depth investigation were hardly surprising. They were, however, dismissed by those in authority as the product of a young scientist’s over-imaginative mind, and as a consequence the whole sorry affair was forgotten and allowed to fade with memory. The events disclosed in this remarkable book have not re-entered the public arena since that time. Given the importance of the topic, and the furore that followed the revelations, it is rather strange that little mention of them is made in any of the whisky books currently in print.

Bernardo Bertolucci Misses The Mark In Response To ‘Last Tango In Paris’ Rape Scene Controversy

On Monday, film director Bernardo Bertolucci responded to the backlash over a controversial rape scene in his film “Last Tango in Paris.” 

In a recently resurfaced video interview, Bertolucci revealed the scene was not consensual, causing outrage on the internet. Now, he’s saying that what actually happened to actress Maria Schneider on set is all a “ridiculous misunderstanding.”

In a statement obtained by Variety, translated from Italian, the director said, “Several years ago at the Cinemathèque Francaise someone asked me for details on the famous butter scene. I specified, but perhaps I was not clear, that I decided with Marlon Brando not to inform Maria that we would have used butter. We wanted her spontaneous reaction to that improper use [of the butter]. That is where the misunderstanding lies. Somebody thought, and thinks, that Maria had not been informed about the violence on her. That is false!”

According to Bertolucci, Schneider was aware of everything else in the scene “because she had read the script, where it was all described.” The only thing she didn’t know about, he said, was the butter. 

“And that, as I learned many years later, offended Maria. Not the violence that she is subjected to in the scene, which was written in the screenplay,” Bertolucci said. 

At the time of the shoot, Schneider was just 19, while her co-star Marlon Brando was 48. 

Regardless of whether or not Schneider knew of the violence, it should be noted that any addition to the scene, such as the butter, which was not previously agreed upon by Schneider, can be considered assault. Bertolucci doesn’t seem to understand that. 

“I didn’t want Maria to act her humiliation, her rage, I wanted Maria to feel … the rage and humiliation. Then she hated me for all [of her] life,” Bertolucci said in the 2013 Cinemathèque Francaise interview. 

Schneider told The Daily Mail that she did, in fact, feel “humiliated” and “a little raped” by the experience. 

“I was so young and relatively inexperienced and I didn’t understand all of the film’s sexual content,” she said. “I should have called my agent or had my lawyer come to the set because you can’t force someone to do something that isn’t in the script, but at the time, I didn’t know that.”

Upon learning of the news, plenty of celebrities, such as Jessica Chastain and Ava DuVernay, expressed their disgust on social media. 

“To all the people that love this film – you’re watching a 19yr old get raped by a 48yr old man. The director planned her attack. I feel sick,” Chastain wrote, while DuVernay called Bertlucci and Brando’s actions “inexcusable.”

Whom To Listen To and When

In April of (2008), I spent two weeks in India following a meditation guru from town to town.

This was my fourth visit to India, but I consider it my first real one. The other three were too touristy. Two were lecture tours, and I stayed in the best hotels, with warm water and the most excellent services money can buy. The third was for a Maha Kumba Mella, which is a gathering of Hindus on the Ganges River every 144 years. Sidhus descend from their caves in the Himalayas, and while it was an interesting experience to see them, it was not day-to-day India.

This time it was different. I slept in an ashram, was driven from town to town in terrible traffic, ate with Indians on the floor, and meditated with them. At my age (71), it was not an easy experience, but the guru was older (80-something) and he held on well, so who am I to complain?

What did I learn?

The meditation I was practicing is called sahaj marg, which means “the natural way.” The practice is to focus on the heart. No mantra, no focusing on the breath or on a candle or whatever, just listen to the heart by slowing down the mind.

I joined this type of practice because I believed I needed it. First, being Jewish, I spend most of my time in my head, and it needed some rest. Second, because I saw my dearest relatives and friends sent to their deaths during World War II, my heart has been closed all these years and it needed opening.
What does it mean to “listen to the heart?” How do you know, when you meditate, which thoughts are of the mind and which of the heart? Thoughts are thoughts, right?

No. There is a difference. You can argue with thoughts of the mind. You might toss and turn, and debate with yourself. But when your heart speaks, there is no argument. There is no discussion. There is no “Why?” or “Why not?” You are complete. You are at peace with yourself. The answer to the question “Why?” is “Because,” and that’s it.

That brought me to the next insight: If you really listen to your heart when you make a decision and your heart does not give you the answer, it means that you are not ready to finalize your decision. This is a case where it is better not to make a decision at that point in time.

That brought me to an interesting conclusion: When you decide with your heart, you cannot make a mistake.

Why?

Well, what is a mistake? It is always a conclusion you come to after the fact, right? It is a feeling of remorse and a judgment that you should have decided differently. It leads to self-accusations: that perhaps you did not deliberate enough, that you did not listen to advice, that you ignored facts, etc. All this is in your head.

When you make a decision with your heart, you are at peace with yourself. If, after the fact, you discover that your decision did not work out as you expected, you can not feel remorse because at the time you made the decision you had no doubts as to what to do, therefore you could not have done better. The fact that it did not work out is now only of academic interest. You can analyze what can be learned from what happened, but there is no place for remorse. You were at peace when you decided, and that was it.

Coming to this peace of mind when you decide with your heart is not a logical conclusion that you have reached after endless debates, internally or with others. It is beyond logic. It gives you a sense of completion, of integration, that almost defies logic. That is how you should feel when you decide to get married. That decision should be made with all your heart, not as a result of analyzing the cost-value relationship or an optimization model. When you make a decision with all your heart, as is the usual expression, you have the feeling of being integrated with your decision totally, wholly–maybe even holy. Mind, body, emotions, and spirit all feel at peace, united.

How does one come to such peace–usually we say “peace of mind,” though it would be more accurate to say “peace of the total body ” which is really peace of the heart–especially if there is a difficult decision to be made? You can do it by meditating. When you meditate you do not get attached to thoughts. Thus, you do not get into endless arguments with yourself. Instead, the decision eventually and automatically emerges as an insight.

If that description leaves you wondering how this insight can happen, let me share with you a story told to me by my one of my colleagues at UCLA, Professor Will McWhinney, that demonstrates this point. When McWhinney was a student at Yale, the fraternities held a contest for best choir. McWhinney’s fraternity had the worst voices at the university, except for one person whose voice was a pure, evangelical tenor. So they devised the following performance: The whole choir got on stage and began to sing where each person sang a different melody, which produced total cacophony. Then, slowly, one by one, each member of the choir stopped singing, except for the tenor, whose voice became stronger and stronger until it was alone, pure and crystal clear and totally enchanting. They won first prize.

This story is analogous to what happens in meditation. You have many voices in your head competing with each other. The more difficult the decision is, the more voices you hear, which can overwhelm you. When you meditate, the voices calm down one by one, while your heart’s voice grows stronger and stronger, until you simply “hear” the answer to your question and feel at peace with your decision.
But not only the head and heart think. We often say, “I have a gut feeling,” as if the gut is doing some decision processing.

That fact brought me to think in (PAEI) terms. The (A) processing is in the head. The (I) is processed by the heart. Where is (P) then? Sunil my associate suggested that if we follow the chakras, it is below the belly button, where our sexual organs are. Their role is survival of the species. That is where we feel instinctively. That is where the fight-or-flight reaction is processed: When we get scared we tighten the rectum, and the pelvic floor muscles.

Some people think with only one part of their body. Those who only react to their instincts are the (P)s: Act first, think later (if at all). Some do not listen to their instincts and use only their brain: These are the (A)s. Some people are only (E)s: all ideas and exciting priorities without considering what the repercussions of these ideas could be. And some people are all heart: They let their feelings for fellow humans or animals or whatever be the exclusive factor that determines their decision. These are the (I)s.

When a person processes information with all his faculties, the first one to respond to a new situation is the (P): His instincts of self preservation urge him to do something. Then the left mind, (A), gets activated: “Let’s think about it.” Next the right side of the brain gets involved, the (E), bringing new ideas to the table, while all along the heart, (I) is crying out, “Hey, listen to me too.”

To put it another way, instinctively you have the urge to do one thing, (P), but you think, (A), that it might not be prudent to do it, so new ideas, (E), come to mind, while you constantly check with yourself to see whether you feel at peace with the decision, (I). All these voices run through you at the same time. It is like a committee meeting where all the different styles compete with one another for attention. It’s a pure mess. Thus it’s not strange that when you have a really big problem to solve you get physically and emotionally exhausted. Your whole body hurts.

There is a difference between processing the (P), (A), (E), and (I) roles–between processing information with your instincts, mind, gut, or heart.

In processing (P), (A), and (E) roles you try to manage the process as best you can: You debate with your gut feelings, you challenge your instincts, and argue with your thoughts. When processing (P), (A), and (E) , you “talk” to the various parts of your body. You disagree with them. You may even get mad at them. It is as if you are the center and they are on the outskirts.

With the heart, (I), it is different. You do not argue with the heart, you listen to the heart. It is as if you subject yourself to something bigger, more powerful, than you. You are not the center any more. You say, “My heart tells me…” Compare that to what you say when you activate your mind: “I have to think it over.” Thinking it over, and over again, means that you are having a debate.

Now the weird stuff: Assume that “out there” is a cosmic, total, ultimate data warehouse. But it is not just data or knowledge, it is the ultimate wisdom based on values, the ultimate truth. It is endless, fixed energy with consciousness. (For me, that is God.) To connect to this cosmic energy you need to open your heart, to listen to your heart. It is as if the heart is the way to connect to God.

How do you hear the heart? How do you listen to it? Through meditation. Not through prayer. Prayer is like trying to manipulate God, pleading and begging him to act. If he does not listen to your prayer you might feel cheated, angry, and deceived.

When you pray, you talk to God. In meditation you listen to God. When you pray you make requests. Perhaps meekly, but no matter how nicely it is packaged and how much you are offering to “pay,” that is, what sacrifices you are willing to make, it is like a purchase order. When you meditate you listen to what God wants from you, not what you want from God. That is the difference.

Listen to your heart. That is where the truth is. Listen to the heart and you will not feel you made a mistake when you decide. If your heart is not ready to decide, you are not ready.

How should you make a decision then?

How should you decide? Here is the optimal path, the road less traveled. This is the lifecycle I suggested for organizations in my Managing Corporate Lifecycles book: Start with (I). Start with your heart first. Ask your heart first what is the right thing to do. Then go get some ideas about what to do, (E), but in doing so do not violate what your heart dictates. Then check those ideas to see if they make sense, (A), and finally be ready to act, (P) but first go back to the heart and check if you are at peace.
If more people would start with their heart and not with their penis, (P), maybe there would be less war, less divorce, less crime. Maybe we ought to teach meditation in prisons. Scientific tests of transcendental meditation have shown that when a certain percentage of people in a community meditate, there is less crime.

In yoga, they say that the mind is a terrorist. It often terrorizes our bodies, making us do things that are not good for us. I once saw a bumper sticker that said, “Do not always believe what you think.” For me this is profound because we Jews not only honor the mind, we worship the mind. With our Talmudic minds, we often complicate problems even when they are simple. We overdo and over-complicate our decision making, sometimes to the point that we cannot solve the problem. We do not listen to our instincts very well. In order to survive two thousand years of persecution, I wonder if we have not closed our hearts except to each other.

Just thinking

Family’s Rapping Xmas Card Takes Hint From ’90s Sitcoms

Family togetherness doesn’t have to get a bad rap.

Sometimes it gets a good one, like this hip-hop Christmas video created by the Lacking family in Los Angeles.

For the last three years, the family has sent out a Christmas video featuring each family member discussing what happened to them during the previous 12 months in back-and-forth, lightning-quick fashion.

The raps are written by Dion Lacking, who writes hip-hop jingles for various businesses.

This year’s video builds on the previous ones by taking a cue from ‘90s-era sitcoms like “Full House” and “Family Matters.”

In true sitcom fashion, the family argues and fights over who is the family’s real star only to realize they all matter in the Lacking universe.

“I wanted to show that we can have problems and come right back and love each other,” Lacking told HuffPost.

This Calendar Of Asian-American Men Is The Hottest Thing This Winter

Now here’s a gift that’ll heat up your holiday season.  

Asian-American actors, writers, and celebrities struck their most ~fire~ poses for the second annual “Haikus On Hotties 2017” calendar. The sizzlin’ book, which was released on Monday, features the models along with poems “about their hotness,” Ada Tseng, the project’s creator, told The Huffington Post. 

Because hey, why not? 

Through the project, Tseng aims to show that Asian dudes are just as deserving of those dreamy lead roles in mainstream movies and television as anyone else. 

“It’s always fun to try and shatter stereotypes, especially when you can combine hot men with poetry,” she said. “I hope our silly calendar makes people realize how silly it is that Asian men aren’t often cast as desirable romantic leads in the mainstream media ― and how easy it is to change.”

While the guys in the calendar are easy on the eyes, unfortunately not everyone sees Asian men as attractive. In fact, the group experiences the most difficulty finding a date, according to data from OKCupid.

And Hollywood definitely hasn’t helped in changing peoples’ perceptions of Asian men. Asians only landed 3.9% of speaking roles in film, TV or digital media ― compare that to 73.7% that Whites occupy. While diversity was a huge theme host Chris Rock addressed during the last Academy Awards ceremony, Asians were not only excluded from the conversation, but at one point were even made the butt of Rock’s jokes.

Luckily this calendar illustrates exactly what Hollywood’s lacking. Its pages are filled with big names in the Asian-American community including Gerrard Lobo, who plays Anush in “Master Of None,” and Jose Antonio Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. It retails for $ 19.99 and the proceeds will go towards Angry Asian Man, a blog focused on Asian-American issues. 

Tseng told HuffPost that though the project was a Kickstarter campaign that began as a joke, it’s popularity shows that people “want more hot Asian American men in their lives.”

And ya know what? We couldn’t agree more. 

Check out some more steamy “Haikus On Hotties” below.

Michelle Obama Is Holiday Cheer Personified In This Festive Gown

The annual Kennedy Center Honors are always a delight for the soul, boasting epic musical performances and heartfelt speeches. Thanks to Barack and Michelle Obama, these evenings have been a treat for the eyes over the last eight years, too.

That’s largely because FLOTUS, who has been turning it all the way up these last few months in the White House, never ceases to amaze us with her keen sense of style and on-theme dressing.

Take this floor-length, off-the-shoulder Gucci stunner, for example. It’s even got a bow embellishment to symbolize the present she truly is (or, you know, the holiday season in general). 

The first lady previously showed off her holiday flair last week for an event at the White House, wearing a similar dress with long sleeves and a full skirt that was also beautifully embellished. Its length and lack of sparkle made it just a tad less fancy than this one, but there’s no denying they’re both show-stopping party dresses. 

President Obama, of course, looked exceptionally dapper in his tuxedo and bow tie, but this home run from FLOTUS is once again the main event.

The Walking Dead’s Tovah Feldshuh on Leadership & Legacy

2016-12-05-1480980180-3043626-TovahFeldshuh_Headshot_570x380.jpg
Tovah Feldshuh

Leadership matters more than ever now. And in our current atmosphere of national divisiveness, it’s tempting to search elsewhere for leaders, until we’re reminded that we must first find the champion within ourselves.

Tovah Feldshuh is one of those leaders that inspires us to look inward. An intellectual, activist, and award-winning performing artist, she defiantly states “Live While Living.” Among her many honors and accolades, she has received the Israel Peace Medal, an Honorary Doctorate from Yeshiva, the Eleanor Roosevelt Humanities Award and, this past year, the Algemeiner’s Voice for Humanity Award. Her prolific career and numerous accomplishments led to her having dinner with Margaret Thatcher and even a meeting with the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Most people know Tovah Feldshuh from her portrayal of congresswoman Deanna Monroe on AMC’s top-rated show The Walking Dead, who faced down complacency in the form of a zombie apocalypse, but what some people may not know is that she based portions of her character Deanna Monroe on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She describes Hillary as a “very skilled, capable stateswoman” with remarkable “acumen under fire.”

Yet, now that the smoke has cleared, both for Hillary Clinton post-election and for Tovah’s character Deanna Monroe on The Walking Dead (her character died courageously last season,) what’s next for her? And what does Tovah believe is next for other artists and activists in our current political climate?

In the show, Deanna went out admirably in a blaze of bullets and glory, taking down a horde of bloodthirsty zombies (“walkers”) to save her community and choosing to die as a hero. First, Tovah addresses mortality before addressing complacency:

“Everybody comes on The Walking Dead to die. And the reason the show is number one is because we all have one common end; human beings know one day they will face having to leave their body. It will not be a choice that they make; it will be made for them unless you commit suicide, and that is totally not my thing – life is a gift.” Tovah continues: “since we all know we are going to die, The Walking Dead looks at how we want to live. Are we going to be a mensch or are we going to be Madoff? Are we going to be a thief or Mother Theresa?”

This outlook is similar to that of Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross who believed that we must contemplate mortality in order to begin to truly live -a fire that translates to Tovah’s life after The Walking Dead in her latest one-woman show titled Aging is Optional (’cause G-d I hope it is!), self-described as an age-defying romp. “I like to deal with aging in terms of quantum time. In other words, I’m not a big fan of linear time. You’re as old as you feel.”

This perspective has fueled the creation of very full life where she swims a half-mile each day, takes a bike wherever she can, takes Pilates classes and Yoga classes. Tovah is a mountain climber and a glacier climber and refuses to take “‘no life’ for an answer.”

However, when thinking about leadership in an age of complacency, Tovah goes back to the flesh-eating zombies of The Walking Dead as a metaphorical starting point: “Under huge pressures, you’re outnumbered by a thousand to one, or thousands to one by walkers, and people who need to eat you in order for them to feel alive – they’re an embodied force without a soul and they feed on the living – they’re moving death that feed on living things.”

This numbness has become a metaphor for Tovah in the real world in terms of citizen apathy and cynicism. “It is much easier to get up in the morning, hold an AK-47, and be tutored to kill Americans and Jews in the Middle East. It’s much easier to do that than to found a postal system, a health system – that’s the grown-up stuff that doesn’t have short-term heroic illusion attached to it. So, it’s much much easier for the dull mind to attack another person. It’s much easier to say, ‘She is a liar. She’s a cheat. I’d put her in jail.'”

However, leadership requires vision and, in our current age, solutions are just as important as criticality. Like Hillary Clinton, the real-life inspiration for her character Deanna Monroe, Tovah says that it is important for us to remain people “not only with political dreams, but political plans, political programs. You may want to shoot it down, but it’s a program – it’s not a criticism.” We cannot spend our lives “trying to tear down someone else. It reminds me of an endophyte.”

The ability to “walk the walk” is a topic that Deanna feels very passionate about, especially in our current political climate. “So, we’re going to look back on our country, at a time when fascism was a temptation and was introduced to the United States in a fervent, formal way. When I say fascism, I mean fascistic tendencies and the underbelly of mankind, what Archbishop John Cardinal O’Connor of New York, in his day, would have called the devil. He was a friend of mine. I said, ‘Sir, do you believe in the devil?’ He said, ‘Absolutely. There’s an underbelly of man, Ms. Feldshuh.’ We’re seeing it right in our face and its mushrooming, and it’s a very scary time and it’s time to stand up straight and remember who you are, and give to the earth all the goodness that you’ve got because they need it.”

Moving to the topic of legacy, Tovah continues “as you get older, what you leave behind for the generations to come becomes extremely important – your moral code, your ability to walk the walk.”

Present national events have left many citizens angry and confused. Amid protests and hate crimes, the echoes of our recent election will be felt for months, if not years. Therefore, in addition to Tovah’s mantra “Live While Living,” she adds “and be generous. The quickest path to happiness is gratitude. If only anger worked, but it doesn’t. If only that worked, we could then only spew forth our venom release for momentary release – yet, you know what the Japanese say, ‘He who gets angry loses.’ If you lose your chi, if you lose your balance, you lose – that’s how they judge character.”

But to Tovah, balance does not mean that you cease activism. In fact, we should do the exact opposite. The positive thing about our current political climate is that “it is engaging the minds of the entire country.” Then, as activists we need to work together in what she terms “education of mind.”

We must remain steadfast to our values and principles, because “in terms of legacy, it’s all that’s left in life as you start to exit. That’s all you got is what you’re leaving behind for the generations to come.”

Speaking of future generations, her two children are also incredibly accomplished: her son Garson Brandon is an economist who studied at Harvard and Oxford, and is presently a founding member of Bluegrass Capital Partners; her daughter, Amanda Claire went to MIT and majored in physics. Her children clearly inspire her as she inspires them. “They were the people whose survival came before my own, their welfare was of the most paramount importance in my life – not because I’m a heroine, because that’s how nature works. You will give your left kidney, or even one of your lungs, or maybe even your life so that they could live – it’s just a natural thing that a mother does. No heroics, a mother would die for their children, whether it’s a duck, a goose or a human being. So, that was a great gift that they gave me. They were more important than my work. They were more important than anything in the world.”

One of the most inspiring things Tovah has done recently is climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with her son this past year, after her 62nd birthday. “We got up there one step at a time, by not having goal orientation, by watching the feet in front of us. There was no rugged individualism, no competition, there was no going to 10, what I call going to maximum effort – you’d never make it. You had to be moderate, patient – you had to delay immediate pleasure to get the long-term enjoyment of summiting.”
And this experience could serve as a metaphor for leadership when looking at our current political climate and the “ravenous appetite to tear apart another person,” that has dominated the political landscape, as opposed to a long-term view for the “betterment of the United States.”

Yes, vision is an essential component of leadership – as is the ability to lift others and help them (and yourself) find the enjoyment in each and every day. We must find the champion within ourselves, so that we can be champions for each other. Tovah concludes by asking us to first engage in deep contemplation, before diving into activism and living: “What are your policies? What are your specifics? Well, what are the specifics of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro? One step in front of another. Look at the feet of the person in front of you. Do not rush. Breath deeply. And, enjoy the moment-to-moment journey – which is endless.”

The Lost Civilization of Lemuria: The Rise and Fall of the World’s Oldest Culture

The Lost Civilization of Lemuria: The Rise and Fall of the World’s Oldest Culture


A compelling new portrait of the lost realm of Lemuria, the original motherland of humanity Contains the most extensive and up-to-date archaeological research on Lemuria Reveals a lost, ancient technology in some respects more advanced than modern science Provides evidence that the perennial philosophies have their origin in Lemurian cultureBefore the Indonesian tsunami or Hurricane Katrina’s destruction of New Orleans, there was the destruction of Lemuria. Oral tradition in Polynesia recounts the story of a splendid kingdom that was carried to the bottom of the sea by a mighty “warrior wave”-a tsunami. This lost realm has been cited in numerous other indigenous traditions, spanning the globe from Australia to Asia to the coasts of both South and North America. It was known as Lemuria or Mu, a vast realm of islands and archipelagoes that once sprawled across the Pacific Ocean. Relying on 10 years of research and extensive travel, Frank Joseph offers a compelling picture of this mother-land of humanity, which he suggests was the original Garden of Eden. Using recent deep-sea archaeological finds, enigmatic glyphs and symbols, and ancient records shared by cultures divided by great distances that document the story of this sunken world, Joseph painstakingly re-creates a picture of this civilization in which people lived in rare harmony and possessed a sophisticated technology that allowed them to harness the weather, defy gravity, and conduct genetic investigations far beyond what is possible today. When disaster struck Lemuria, the survivors made their way to other parts of the world, incorporating their scientific and mystical skills into the existing cultures of Asia, Polynesia, and the Americas. Totem poles of the Pacific Northwest, architecture in China, the colossal stone statues on Easter Island, and even the perennial philosophies all reveal their kinship to this now-vanished civilization.

Betty Zane (Illustrated)

Betty Zane (Illustrated)


Betty Zane’s great-grandnephew, the author Zane Grey, wrote a historical novel about her, titled Betty Zane. One of the main events in the story is the tale of Zane’s fetching supplies from the family cabin. When Grey could not find a publisher for the book, he published it himself in 1903 using his wife’s money. Grey later named his daughter Betty Zane after his famous aunt. This edition of the book contains the four, original illustrations by Louis F. Grant, and six additional illustrations of the American Revolution, four of which are in full-color. Pearl Zane Grey (January 31, 1872 – October 23, 1939) was an American author best known for his popular adventure novels and stories that presented an idealized image of the American frontier. Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) was his best-selling book. Pearl Zane Gray was born January 31, 1872, in Zanesville, Ohio. His birth name may have originated from newspaper descriptions of Queen Victoria’s mourning clothes as “pearl gray”. He was the fourth of five children born to Alice “Allie” Josephine Zane, whose English Quaker immigrant ancestor Robert Zane came to America in 1673, and her husband, Lewis M. Gray, a dentist. His family changed the spelling of their last name to “Grey” after his birth. Later Grey dropped Pearl and used Zane as his first name. He grew up in Zanesville, a city founded by his maternal great-grandfather Ebenezer Zane, an American Revolutionary War patriot; from an early age, the boy was intrigued by history. Grey developed interests in fishing, baseball, and writing, all which contributed to his writing success. His first three novels recounted the heroism of his ancestors who fought in the American Revolutionary War. As a child, Grey frequently engaged in violent brawls, despite (or because of) his father’s punishing him with severe beatings. Though irascible and antisocial like his father, Grey was supported by a loving mother and found a father substitute. Muddy Miser was an old man who appro

Kandy Korn 2

Kandy Korn 2


The thing about Kandy Korn is that every year there is more of it, and so just like the previous Halloween with the Kreme, there’s a special bag of treats waiting with three fresh Klassics to Kollect. In Dawn of the Zombie Sluts, the small mountain town of Romero is about to wake up to a misty fog, though what the innocent families in that town do not suspect is that this fog results directly from a horrible crash by a truck carrying highly dangerous government chemicals. These chemicals are within the mist, the strange cloud that has enveloped the entire town and one family is about to discover that something is in the fog, something that will change them like never before. As a government recovery squad moves in to try and take back the town, a growing army of zombies emerges, zombies with much more perverse desires than brains on their cold dead minds. In For Whom Belle Trolls, the neighborhood kids are terrified of one innocuous looking home, or more specifically the Beast within. As a delivery man discovers when he has a package for the woman who lives there, it is not Belle’s Beast he should fear, but the mysterious Belle herself as she takes much more than just his package. And finally in Propagators of the Planet Pluto, take a lighthearted journey behind the minds from a tiny planetoid that does not appreciate its status coming into question. When Pluto was changed to be called a dwarf planet, the fearsome and vengeful residents of Pluto sent their best ship to teach humanity a lesson. The Plutonians have brought Propagation Pistols and they are going to make sure Earth understands what being small is all about by sending the populace into such a mating fit that the planet will forever be overcrowded and perversity will rule the land. Whether you fear mysterious government chemicals, strange weather, zombies, the mysterious unknown behind closed doors in a rather innocent looking neighborhood, or babies by the billions, Kandy Korn 2 is sure to scare in only the mos

Star Wars: Will Other Toon Characters Go Live-Action?

With Clone Wars character Saw Gerrera making his live-action debut in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as played by Forest Whitaker, might other animated characters from Star Wars television series make the transition to live-action in future Star Wars movies?

Not necessarily, according to Lucasfilm president and Star Wars movie producer Kathleen Kennedy. She said during a Rogue One press conference today at Lucasfilm that the movies are designed as stories first rather than launching pads for existing animated small screen characters to be brought to the big screen in live-action.

“You know, that really isn’t the approach that we have,” said Kennedy. “We don’t sit down and start isolating a list of characters and then build stories around those.”

Going for the Gold! Madonna’s Daughter Mercy Takes Home Four Medals at Gymnastics Competition

Does the Final Five need a sixth member of their team? Because Madonna‘s daughter Mercy James might be ready to join them!

On Sunday, the star and proud mom took to Instagram to share her love and support for her 10-year-old daughter.

“Mercy James takes home 4 Medals!” the pop icon, 58, captioned a photo of her beaming daughter with four medals from a gymnastics competition around her neck.

Soon after, Madonna shared another photo of Mercy holding hands with several other competitors on a podium.

“Go Mercy James!!! It’s all about team Work!” she wrote in the post.

Madonna found Mercy at Kondanani Children’s Village in the town of Bvumbwe when she first visited Malawi in October 2006, the same time she found her son David Banda, now 11, at a different orphanage. Mercy was placed at Children’s Village following the death of her teenage mother.

Mercy’s big competition comes just two days after Madonna made headlines after saying she was “still in love” with ex-husband Sean Penn onstage at a charity gala she hosted in Miami on Friday night.

“I’m still in love with you,” she told Penn — as seen in video on Bethenny Frankel’s Snapchat.

The event raised more than $ 7.5 million for Malawi, the birthplace of Mercy and David, the Associated Press reported.

Global Brands Acquires Majority Stake in Sean John

Diddy has a new partner.
Global Brands Group Holding Ltd. has purchased a majority stake in Sean John, the men’s lifestyle brand founded 18 years ago by hip-hop entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs — alternately known as Puff Daddy or Puffy. The deal, the terms of which were not disclosed, also includes Combs’ Enyce brand.
Sean John, which has annual retail sales of around $ 450 million, as well as the smaller Enyce brand, will become part of CAA-GBG Global Brand Management Group, a division that involves a number of celebrity labels including Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria and the Bob Marley Estate, as well as Coca-Cola, Jeep and Hershey’s.
Combs will retain a minority interest — believed to be around 20 percent — and will continue to be involved in the marketing and promotion of the Sean John brand. Jeff Tweedy, Sean John’s longtime president, will remain in his position, and the brand’s current roster of licenses — as well as its exclusive relationship with Macy’s for the sportswear line — will also continue.
“When we started Sean John, it was my dream to build it into an aspirational brand for the young consumer,” said Combs, chief executive officer of Sean John and chairman of Combs Enterprises.

Nicola Formichetti Toasts New Diesel Flagship in London

FORMICHETTI’S FORM: It’s been a busy week for Nicola Formichetti. On Wednesday, he was at the Victoria’s Secret show at the Grand Palais in Paris, for which he had created the 12 looks in the Pink section of the show. On Thursday, in his role as creative director of Diesel, he hosted the opening party for the brand’s flagship in Knightsbridge.
This, after trips to Venice, Milan, New York, London and Paris, all in the last week. He has one more trip to Italy planned for next week before he heads home to New York. His secret to calming down? Meditation.
“I did transcendental meditation for about a year, but then I went back to my original method, which is a breathing technique. You just focus on the nose, on the air in and out. I do it in bed for about 10 minutes morning and night because you feel weird when someone else is around. Then, when I’m stressed or traveling a lot, I’ll also meditate during the day.”

Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2017

The pre-seasons have become about two things: the clothes themselves and, in this age of Instagram, insta-access, insta-everything, how and when designers sanction their unveiling.
Along the way, the editorial embargo — once viewed by journalists as a last-resort deal with the devil to secure a major, sensitive story — is now applied regularly to the often fine, seldom scintillating array of tops, pants and dresses that comprise the resort and pre-fall collections. It’s — what’s the word? Ridiculous.
Thank the fashion gods that, even in these crazy times, some designers retain a sense of perspective, Michael Kors at the top of the list. Yes, he fears the fast-fashion knock-off machine. But as he sees it, the “big reveal” need not be an all-or-nothing affair. Thus Kors shows his full collection to both short- and long-lead press and designates a number of looks for photography, for pre-fall upping the count from six looks to 10. Nobody needs any more. (WWD does not see embargoed collections; we wait for the embargo to lift, so we can do our job, which is to report on what we see.)
While Kors’ pre-fall looked fresh, it picked up on a major current from his upbeat spring collection, inspired, he said

Farmageddon

Farmageddon


Farm animals have been disappearing from our fields as the production of food has become a global industry. We no longer know for certain what is entering the food chain and what we are eating? as the UK horsemeat scandal demonstrated. We are reaching a tipping point as the farming revolution threatens our countryside, health and the quality of our food wherever we live in the world. Farmageddon is a fascinating and terrifying investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry across the world? from the UK, Europe and the USA, to China, Argentina, Peru and Mexico. It is both a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices and an attempt to find a way to a better farming future.

American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Baby Groot Is Too Cute In New ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Teaser

It’s no secret Baby Groot has become everyone’s favorite character from “Guardians of the Galaxy” and judging from the newest teaser for the franchise’s second installment, the film’s creators are well aware. 

On Saturday, Marvel posted a new look at the upcoming film, and it’s filled with plenty of scenes featuring the tiny superhero. You’ll want to watch it over and over again just to see the cute tree-like creature screaming “I am Groot!” 

The clip also provides a look at the rest of the crew, including Star-Lord, Gamora and Rocket, involved in what looks like a pretty intense battle against the very toothy, very slimy Abilisk, and gives us a glimpse at Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theaters in May 2017.

The Power of Eloquence

Beautiful Words Have Power
by Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight, Jr.

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol,” St. Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthians two thousand years ago. “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that I can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor, and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.” Paul bequeathed us faith, hope and love -these three — “but the greatest of these,” he said, “is love.”
Paul passed away, as we all must in our time, but he continues to enrich the human experience with his beautiful words that are timeless. It should be noted that when Paul spoke of love, he was not talking about romance between a man and a woman, but rather love for our fellow human beings. Interestingly, the scholars working for King James translated that key phrase as “faith, hope and charity” which I believe came closer to Paul’s meaning.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” wrote Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence two centuries ago, “that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Jefferson and his editors among the Founding Fathers toyed with that last one. Some wanted to say “life, liberty and property.” But they hesitated to assert that everyone was entitled by God to property. I am glad they chose “pursuit of happiness” instead of “pursuit of property,” for the words are beautiful in their vague simplicity. Like the words of St. Paul, they have stood the test of time and still inspire people.
Some are troubled by Jefferson’s eloquence about liberty because of his hypocrisy as a slave owner, and he was certainly aware of that even within the context of his own time. Jefferson knew slavery was evil and acknowledged as much, saying it alarmed him “like a fire bell in the night” as if he had foreseen the consequences that would ensue for that failure to deal with the worst blot on our nation’s history. That was left for another great wordsmith to deal with.
“Fourscore and seven years ago, our forefathers brought forth on this continent a new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal,” opined Abraham Lincoln at the dedication of the military cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1863. “We are now engaged in a great Civil War testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.” He concluded his short address with the hope that “government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
St. Paul, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln shared a gift for beautiful words – constructing sentences that soar beyond mere communication to touch the heart and inspire humanity to rise above its mean estate. It is difficult to imagine President-elect Trump joining this company – tweets do not often sustain eloquence – but you never know. If he can summon President Reagan’s speechwriter Peggy Noonan back to Washington, anything is possible.
Lt. Gen. Clarence E. “Mac” McKnight, Jr., (USA-Ret) is the author of “From Pigeons to Tweets: A General Who Led Dramatic Change in Military Communications,” published by The History Publishing Company.

The 17 Hottest Wedding Trends for 2017

By Debra Witt for Bridal Guide

The new year brings new ideas for all things wedding, from invitations to flowers, cocktails to cake…and more!

1. Vintage glamour (with a twist). Picture an industrial warehouse decked out with ornate, over-the-top centerpieces and set aglow with strands of twinkling lights and candles. You get the picture: a whimsical mash-up of old and new.

2. Encore metallics. Brides continue to embrace copper, rose gold, and pewter because they’re so versatile, says Sara Fried, of Fete Nashville. Not only do they work with other colors for a look that’s at once relaxed and fun, they are ideal tones for a black-tie evening. Pro tip: “Use shine strategically,” says Sarah Chancey, founder of Chancey Charm Weddings, in Atlanta and 11 other cities. “Metallic linens on every table is too much: better to save the shine for the head and display tables.”

3. Neutral territory. From charcoal to blue-greys, or grey-browns, “This color palette is perfect for the bride who wants to achieve a classic, sophisticated feel that won’t seem dated or look too trendy in years to come,” says Michelle Cousins, the planning guru behind Michelle Leo Events in Utah.

4. Surprise settings. Today’s couples want a wedding that will blow their guests away, and one of the key elements to an unforgettable event is the choice of venue. “Any place with a large plot of land or a distinct building — or both — will allow couples to really personalize their wedding and help them tell their unique story,” says Amy Cagginello, founder of Amy Champagne Events in Connecticut.

5. Swoon-worthy blooms. Peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias and other “soft-petal” blooms are the top-requested flowers from coast to coast — and for good reason. “They epitomize romance,” says Zoe Gallina, creative director of Botanica international Floral Design in Florida. Peonies, in particular are in high demand, with one planner noting that some brides will time their weddings to take place when peonies are in peak season. Loose rose petals, used as a “garland” or runner atop tables or scattered among floating candles, are another trend that’s coming on strong.

6. Sophisticated whimsy. At the other end of the trend spectrum, gallina says flowering plants like king- and pink-ice protea, along with assorted bold tropical blooms and small potted plants, lend a dose of stateliness for brides who want arrangements that feel natural and organic — yet elegant.

7. Paper form follows fashion. “Wedding invitation styles often mimic what’s happening in fashion and home decor,” says Jill Ryder of Shindig Bespoke, a custom design studio based in new York City and Philadelphia. For 2017 that means mixing two patterns, like stripes and florals, on the backs of cards or on envelope liners, as well as textured paper.

Related: Invitations by Style: Find the Right Fit for Your Wedding

8. Handcrafted. “Hand calligraphy is such a strong trend that it’s not uncommon for brides and grooms to learn how to do it themselves,” says Chancey. Fortunately for those with a less steady hand, sites like minted and Wedding Paper Divas feature a wide range of invitation suites that look hand-calligraphed.

9. Local specialties. With more couples infusing pride of location in their hometown celebrations, local flavors are taking the spotlight. For example, in Utah, buffalo is often featured as both a main course and as an appetizer, says Cousins. In Vermont, maple flavoring can make several appearances in the menu. Gulf shrimp is on display in various parts of the South, and so on. (The trend carries over to drinks.) “It’s an extension of the farm-to-table trend that popped up a few years ago,” says Chancey, “but even more fun for the guests.”

10. Paired up. Wine-and-cheese pairings have become a familiar site at cocktail receptions, but the idea of matching different foods with different drinks is being carried over to other types of beverages and appetizers, says Hall. “It elevates the guest experience by keeping folks active and engaged,” she says. Some duets to consider: wine and pasta, cake and craft beer, margaritas and guacamole, or for a wedding brunch, try mimosas and pastries.

Related: 50 Fun Menu Innovations for Your Reception

11. What’s old is new again. In 2017, bartenders and mixologists are moving away from the very sweet and/or colorful pours in favor of old-time classics, including the moscow mule, a Pimm’s Cup, and the sidecar.

12. Sugar high. Tall cakes that look as if they leapt off the pages of your mother’s wedding album are suddenly in vogue. “After the last few years of pies, cake pops, doughnuts, and cupcakes, there’s been a strong shift back to tiered wedding cakes,” says Bosse. “There’s something nostalgic to people about wedding cake.” As for the height aspect of the trend, she says tall cakes lend visual interest to a dessert table and allow for some very creative artistry — anything from hand painting to jeweled accents.

Related: 101 Amazing Wedding Cakes

13. Sweet satisfaction. S’mores stations and candy bars have been around for a few years, but one new dessert trend is to forgo a formal dessert course and instead serve guests passed desserts and/or set up several grazing dessert stations so guests can mingle and sample, “just like cocktail hour,” says Cagginello. “It keeps the energy going.”

14. Snap and chat. Sara Fried says her clients are loving the newest takes on the traditional photo booth. “There’s the slo-mo booth, the animated GIF booth, the flip-book booth and others,” she says. “All are amazing ways to keep guests fully entertained.” Most booths will text the content directly to smartphones, so your friends can share immediately on social media — and you get copies of everything at the end of the night.

15. Cut and share. Instagram video edits are an increasingly popular package option from videographers, says Lisa Ashley, owner and curator of the Wedding Artists Collective, a specialty group of wedding photographers and videographers. These 60- to 90-second films “have the look and feel of a cinematic trailer and are wonderful representations of the day,” she says.

16. Reaching new heights. Couples can’t get enough of the unique perspectives offered by drone technology for both videos and aerial stills, and pros are following suit, offering packages that include drone footage as an add-on option. Poised for take-off: professional-quality, user-friendly drones for non-pros (and perhaps a wedding guest), such as EHang Ghostdrone 2.0, which is controlled by your smartphone via the EHang Play mobile app.

17. Setting a mood. Lounge areas have been an important decor element at wedding cocktail hours for years, but as after-parties come into fashion wedding pros find themselves setting up more lounge-style seating vignettes closer to the dance floor. “We’ll also change the lighting so the room or tent has more of a club feel,” says Cousins.

Mistaken Identity


Reader Review: Buckle up for this wild ride! (5 Stars) BySydney Molare’ “www. sydneymolare.com” (Roxie, MS, United States)Hold onto you panties, ladies! Mistaken Identity is a scorching ride that will have you wiggling in your seat and screaming for your lover by the end of the first chapter! Beautiful twins and a wedding set the stage for this erotic thriller. Denise, a frigid but gorgeous schemer is about to be married for all the wrong reasons-money and prestige. Her mirror image, Dana, is the total opposite-quiet, unassuming but a whiz at business. These twins have always been competitive and Denise thinks she has the upper hand when she snags the man of Dana’s dreams as her fiancé-sexy professional football player, Jerome Lott. The table turns, however, when Dana tries on Denise’s gown and Jerome barrels in and makes love to who he thinks is Denise just before the nuptials. and Dana allows him. Can you feel the tension?Jerome realizes his mistake too late but the flames have been ignited and he wants more Dana. Embarrassed, Dana tries to extricate herself from the now delicate situation but Denise blackmails her into “assuming her role” for the honeymoon and beyond. Dana reluctantly agrees but sees no way out. However, Dana is speechless when it is revealed that the actual ceremony was a sham and the “real” marriage will be performed on the honeymoon. And guess whose name is on the birth certificate presented? Dana’s.Denise, meanwhile, changes her mind and decides she wants to be Jerome’s trophy wife. minus the sex. Jerome is frustrated and turns to Dana to vent his frustrations. Dana tries to resist but eventually their “in-law” status progresses into a satisfying relationship for both. As the story moves along, I am at first puzzled by Jerome’s mood swings and the question he always asks Dana, “Can you love two people at the same time?” I am further enthralled when, after a night of lovemaking, he proclaims he is not Jerome Lott.

Emma Stone Is A Sexy, Hot Dog-Loving Poster Girl Come To Life In ‘SNL’ Sketch

Emma Stone took on the role of sexy poster girl during her stint on “Saturday Night Live” last night and thanks to her, we’ll never think of math the same way again. 

In one sketch, called “Posters,” Pete Davidson plays a student struggling to figure out his algebra homework. As he considers dropping out of school, he falls asleep and begins dreaming the people from the posters on his wall are talking to him.

As the snowboarder (Mikey Day), video game character (Kate McKinnon) and comedian (Kenan Thompson) on the walls try to encourage Davidson to believe in himself, Stone’s hot dog-obsessed modern pinup continues to distract him with her “fat, shiny hotdog” and sexual innuendos. 

Playing up the “dumb blonde” stereotype, Stone never seems to realize the other poster people are trying to help Davidson with his math, which causes some understandable (and hilarious) annoyance from the others.

Watch the full sketch above.

OPEN THIS END: CONTEMPORARY ART FROM THE BLAKE BYRNE COLLECTION

2016-12-04-1480865324-4507172-1.WarholOpenThisEnd.jpg

The final leg in the two-year journey of “Open This End: Contemporary Art from the Blake Byrne Collection” exhibition continues at the Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art, Lewis & Clark College, in Portland, Oregon. This amazing show’s travels began in 2015 at the Nasher Museum of Art, Duke University, which coincided with Blake’s 80th birthday celebration, and then toured to The Ohio State University Urban Arts Space and Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University. “Open This End” assembles both iconic and lesser-known selected works from Byrne’s remarkable and distinguished collection, which features more than 1,200 pieces, narrowed down to about seventy-five for this exhibition.

This delightful presentation is a virtual window into a serious collector’s personal vision through an art historical context, highlighting some of the most influential artists of the last fifty years, carefully and skillfully tracing a number of intertwined narratives in the progression of contemporary art from the 1960s to the present. Organized over the last five years by Barbara Schwan, Executive Director of The Skylark Foundation, this is a simply remarkable exhibition on so many levels, and supporting her efforts to produce a scholarly and impressive hardcover catalog were Richard J. Powell, Kris Paulsen, Kimerly Rorschach and Bruce Kogut. The title comes from a small 1962 silkscreen painting by Andy Warhol, the earliest work in the show, which suggests an invitation for the viewer to explore this soon-to-be “unpacked” display, which, like a gift being unwrapped, always brings with it an element of surprise, anticipation and delight.

Joseph Wolin, the curator of the exhibition elaborates: “By extension it also suggests that contemporary art may comprise a sometimes puzzling package that we can unlock for both pleasure and edification. In a more humorous vein, the title implies that there exists a certain way to approach contemporary art and its history, a particular end from which to open the box (in this case, a crate!), an implication belied by contemporary art itself, and by the multiple, parallel, interconnected, open-ended, and at times contradictory artistic and historical threads the exhibition gathers together.” For any number of reasons, the title seems to fit rather cleverly and appropriately, but the irony is that from the get-go Byrne was not interested in building a collection to impress others with brand names like Warhol, but rather with very little guidance early on, used his intuition to seek out works that would provoke an emotional response, regardless of how obscure the artist was initially, it obviously was a chance that Byrne felt worth taking. I’m reminded of Evel Knievel’s own fifteen minutes of Warholian fame, which came with a personal observation just after one of his well-known and dangerous motorcycle jumps: “No risk, no reward.”

In fact, risk is related to reward and achievement for most of the artists represented in this memorable exhibition, especially for Warhol, as it is for most great private collections of contemporary art. This is an era when some noted art collectors around the planet have built huge museums for their own collections, including François Pinault in Paris, Jorge Pérez in Miami, Eli and Edythe Broad in Los Angeles, Dutchman Joop van Caldenborgh and Budi Tek in China, among others. Blake Byrne’s goal was not to construct an art fortress to protect his artworks, but to choose to live with his most treasured pieces, rarely “de-acquisitioning” any of them, and eventually passing on portions to other institutions. Byrne graciously does this from time to time; his promised gift to MOCA LA of 123 works, for example, remains the largest and most generous donation in the museum’s history, in fact, over half of the works included in “Open This End” are from the promised gifts to MOCA LA, as well as a good selection that has been promised to Duke University’s Nasher Museum.

The story of Blake Byrne is unique, and is encouraging news for young collectors that have an interest in contemporary art, but at first have little background in art appreciation and a sense of where to begin. Byrne first started accumulating modest pictures during his honeymoon in Paris, and after several moves in between, he landed in Providence, a significant art city and home to thousands of artists as well as the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), one of the world’s best art schools, and then to Fort Worth, where he and his family regularly visited the Kimbell Art Museum and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art for inspiration. He eventually moved back to Manhattan in 1988, taking up residence at 58th Street and 7th Avenue, so naturally he would visit the 57th Street art galleries in his neighborhood, which strengthened his perspectives on art.

I first met Blake and his family on the day they moved into the Victorian house next door to mine on the historic east side of Providence, Rhode Island. He was in the business of managing TV stations, and his magic touch made them profitable. He also had all the makings of a great collector: inquisitive, instinctual, studious, intelligent, adventuresome, open-minded, enthusiastic, an astute eye and a warm heart, along with a willingness and the resources to invest in works of art with which he also wanted to enjoy living. As our friendship developed, I introduced him to the campus of RISD, and as I recall, he began acquiring a few works here and there of local artists, such as Bill Drew and several very early works of mine. Mr. Byrne was a proud workaholic, and was especially adept at analyzing TV station data reports every evening when he finally arrived home. Surely it was this experience and training that later he applied to buying art, after he retired as a broadcast executive and began collecting in earnest in 1988. On the advice of Jack Tilton, his long-time friend and mentor and highly respected Manhattan gallerist, Byrne went to Art Basel with Tilton in 1988 and made his first cutting-edge art purchases, including works by Juan Muñoz, Cristina Iglesias and Richard Tuttle, among others. Not bad for the first date! And, fortuitously, he started collecting Marlene Dumas at bargain prices the following year, a wise decision, as her works have since shot up greatly in value. From this jumping off point, he assembled an impressive collection that is both expansive and focused, maintaining strong commitments to certain artists that he has accumulated en masse.

“Open This End” does not try to track a single theme or storyline, but takes advantage of the significant strengths of Byrne’s collection that offers a unique and personal overview of contemporary art. With the size, breadth and complexity of this memorable show, it’s not possible here to examine select works in detail, but suffice it to say that the following alphabetical sampling of “Open This End’s” line-up will give you a clear perspective on what constitutes a wonderfully revealing and dramatic presentation: Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Mark Bradford, Marlene Dumas (11 works), Robert Gober, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Douglas Gordon, David Hammons, Bruce Helander, Thomas Houseago, Mike Kelley, Martin Kersels, Martin Kippenberger, Louise Lawler, Sherrie Levine, Glenn Ligon, Agnes Martin, Rita McBride, Paul McCarthy, Steve McQueen, Matthew Monahan, Juan Muñoz, Wangechi Mutu, Bruce Nauman, Albert Oehlen, Paul Pfeiffer, Jack Pierson, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Tony Smith, Jennifer Steinkamp, Luc Tuymans, Andy Warhol, Kehinde Wiley and Christopher Williams. It should be noted that this list signifies only about 10% of Byrne’s entire collection, which continues to grow. As a whole, this distinguished assortment of human creativity provides an astute summary of most of the important trends in contemporary art since the 1960s. Kimerly Rorschach proposes a striking summation in her insightful catalog essay, “Blakean Vision,” which is appropriate to repeat here: “Through collecting, the collector can engage with and consider the great issues: love and loss, birth and death, the fate of our planet, our identity and culture, both collective and individual–in short, our humanity.”

Happy Birthday Blake Byrne!

‘Moana’ Tops The Box Office For Second Weekend In A Row With $28.4 Million

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – “Moana” sailed to the top of the domestic box office for the second consecutive weekend. The Disney animated adventure picked up $ 28.4 million to push its stateside haul to $ 119.9 million.

Not that “Moana” faced much in the way of competition. The weekend after Thanksgiving tends to be a slow one for the movie business and this year’s edition was in keeping with that tradition. The only major new release, “Incarnate,” failed to sell many tickets, earning $ 2.6 million and falling short of its expected $ 4 million to $ 5 million opening.

“Incarnate” centers on a scientist (Aaron Eckhart) who enters the mind of an 11-year-old boy to rid him of an evil spirit. The horror film is the latest offering from BH Tilt, which is trying to contain distribution costs by orchestrating more targeted marketing campaigns for certain theatrical releases. “Incarnate” used digital advertising to try to better reach younger horror fans, and debuted on 1,700 screens, substantially fewer theaters than most studio movies unfurl across. It cost $ 5 million to produce.

“Believe,” a faith-based drama about a Christmas pageant, grossed a quiet $ 602,519 from 639 locations. Freestyle Releasing backed the film.

One bright spot was the limited release debut of Fox Searchlight’s “Jackie.” The look at First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s efforts to put on a funeral for John Kennedy that honored her husband and cemented the president’s legacy has earned raves for Natalie Portman’s lead performance and Oscar buzz. It also did strong business in five theaters, picking up $ 275,000 for a $ 55,000 per-screen average.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the Harry Potter spinoff from Warner Bros., took second place, earning $ 18.5 million to push its domestic gross to $ 183.5 million.

Paramount’s “Arrival” came in third, earning $ 7.3 million. The science-fiction thriller has made $ 73.1 million. Coming in fourth, Paramount’s “Allied” added $ 7 million to its $ 28.9 million gross. Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” rounded out the top five, picking up $ 6.5 million to bring its stateside bounty to $ 215.3 million.

Among Oscar contenders, Amazon Studios and Roadside’s “Manchester by the Sea” expanded nicely, picking up $ 2.4 million after moving from 48 to 156 screens. The acclaimed drama about a grieving janitor has made $ 4.4 million.

A24’s “Moonlight” continued to impress. The coming-of-age story made $ 915,750, pushing its gross to $ 9.9 million.

The domestic box office continues to outpace last year’s revenues, with 2016 up roughly 4% over 2015. However, the weekend totals were off 3% from the same period last year, when the horror comedy “Krampus” debuted to a strong $ 16.3 million.

The movie business continues to hold its collective breath for the opening of “Rogue One: A Star Wars” story on Dec. 16, which is expected to dominate ticket sales for the rest of the year.

“This was the drama-free weekend,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. “It’s the calm after the storm and the calm before the storm.”
