Uniqlo Opens Knitwear Show With Tales of Horizontal Knitting Machines

NEAT KNITS: Don’t take your sweater for granted.
This felt like the underlying message relayed by Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. executives speaking before a crowded room of journalists gathered for a Uniqlo exhibit about knitwear in Paris. People squeezed into the entrance of the show, a wide room covered with dangling wheels of colored wool, the hues arranged like a giant, three-dimensional rainbow.
Held at the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris, the show runs from Wednesday through Saturday. It’s a sort of ephemeral pop-up experience from the Japanese label, which touts the exhibit as its first, as it joins the growing ranks of brands aiming to pull in new consumers by telling people how their stuff is made.
“The Art and Science of LifeWear” features a knitting machine in action, building a sweater dress before the public. It then takes visitors through a life of a sweater through photos, showing inspection stages and the factory hanger system, finishing with the final residue removal, done by hand. Another room is covered with rows of outfits, some outfitted with knit hats, scarves and gloves.
Closing the exhibit is a pop-up shop, complete with a cash register, featuring collaborations with Andrea Crews—airport themed, with sweaters stamped “Paris”

Damir Doma to Show Men’s and Women’s Together in June

Just as a number of brands ranging from Ermenegildo Zegna, Bottega Veneta and Calvin Klein Collection to Costume National, Corneliani and No. 21 will, for different reasons, forgo the catwalk during Milan Fashion Week in June, Damir Doma has decided to show both his men’s and women’s collections on the runway.
“It took almost a year to make this decision but we think this will enable us to improve our deliveries and performances,” said Doma, who unified his women’s pre-fall and main collections into a single lineup in June. The Croatian designer said he will show the same number of men’s and women’s outfits. “The sales campaign will close in July and we will have the right amount of time to produce the collections and have them delivered in stores earlier than in the past.”
Doma also said that by showing together the two collections buyers might make more coherent purchases. “Men’s buyers used to focus on sportswear, while women’s buyers tend to look for special pieces,” he explained. “The image of the brand was not cohesive in the stores and it also turned out that women’s wear had a higher retail price point. I hope that, from now on, things will be more balanced.”
Doma, who sells his collections in 120 stores, added that

The Photos From Chanel’s Show In Cuba Are Absolutely Dreamy

Chanel continuously pushes the boundaries when it comes to its runway shows. But now, its all-mighty leader Karl Lagerfeld has literally crossed a boundary few of us in the United States can say we’ve crossed: He debuted Chanel’s 2017 Cruise Collection in Havana, Cuba. 

With the imminent change in rules and regulations over travel to Cuba from the U.S., it was only a matter of time before someone Lagerfeld pulled a move like this. While traveling there is still out of the realm of possibility for many, some, like beloved fashion site The Coveteur, got to experience it first hand. 

The website’s co-founders Jake Rosenberg and Stephanie Mark were on-site for the exclusive, dreamy event, capturing scenes from Havana’s beautiful surroundings and the show itself, which they explained had “essentially taken over an entire city plaza.” 

There were colorful cars! Mojitos and lemonade! Tilda Swinton! And arguably most shocking of all: Lagerfeld in an uncharacteristically colorful outfit.

Check out all the dreaminess below, and to see more head to The Coveteur

British Designer Claire Barrow Stages First Solo Art Show

CLAIRE’S CREATIVITY: British designer Claire Barrow will be taking over East London’s M. Goldstein gallery for her first solo art show in April.
Titled “Bed, Bath & Beyond,” the mixed media exhibit will feature 17 pieces in ink, neon and acrylic.
The works juxtapose modern daily anxieties with medieval fables and religious iconography.
Barrow references the ritual of baptism against the daily habit of taking a shower or the fear of germs within a series of canvases, neons, shower curtains and toilet rolls.
“My initial reference point was social anxieties in British modern life. Then I was researching imagery from the Renaissance and Christianity’s depiction of hell, baptism and rebirth, so I started thinking about the similarities between that and the modern rituals of washing and feeling clean or free of guilt,” Barrow told WWD. “Once I had began painting and drawing, though, it was very much coming from my own imagination, I began referencing my feelings and instincts rather than taking any kind of direct visual inspiration.”
The NewGen recipient,who debuted her label as part of Fashion East during the spring 2013 season, has always blurred the lines between art and fashion.
“Every piece I create has art on it, there is a complete crossover

Tyra Banks Quits ‘FABLife’ Show After Two Months To Focus On New Company

Tyra Banks was too fierce for the “FABLife,” as TMZ is reporting that Banks has left the talk show after only two months.

Banks is an executive producer for the show, which also features model Chrissy Teigen, editor in chief of Yahoo Style Joe Zee, home expert Lauren Makk and YouTube star Leah Ashley. 

“This is a very difficult decision, but necessary,” said a rep for Banks in statement to The Huffington Post.

Tyra, via her rep, sent the following statement: “I will be devoting more time to my new, growing cosmetics company, Tyra Beauty, which is expanding faster than anticipated, as well as overseeing my company’s other entertainment ventures. I will however continue to support the growth and success of ‘FABLife’ and greatly admire my fellow co-hosts and the talented production team behind the show.”

Banks is already looking for people to come work for her beauty startup, according to her Twitter. 

The announcement comes less than a month after the CW canceled Banks’ long-running “America’s Next Top Model” after 22 seasons.

Luckily, her rep confirmed that Banks is still working on “Life-Size 2” with the Disney Channel. 

“FABLife” has yet to make a statement regarding Banks’ departure, so we’re just going to pretend they said this:

A First Peek at the Fashion on Sarah Jessica Parker’s New HBO Show, Divorce

We’ve collectively been thrilled about news that Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to TV ever since it was confirmed that her HBO show Divorce was actually, 100% happening. A picture of SJP filming the show in downtown Manhattan has just surfaced and already has us excited about the upcoming style we can expect to devour, covet, and draw inspiration from. It’s only a single outfit, but even so—this is major when it comes to TV fashion.

sarah-jessica-parker-pink-coat-the-divorce-hbo-show

In the snap, Parker is wearing a long, powdery pink coat over a printed dress. And while New York is legitimately experiencing chilly fall weather, the addition of nubby gray tights and classic pumps has us hypothesizing that the show will start off being set in fall or winter. The print and colored topper reveal that SJP’s character has to be somewhat into fashion, but she’s not pushing any envelopes, Carrie Bradshaw-style. That shouldn’t come as a surprise though, since the Sex and the City character was a 30-something-ish single gal and Parker’s new character, Frances, is a middle-aged woman going through a divorce.

HBO execs announced the series was being written this summer and wouldn’t premiere until the summer or fall of 2016. With that timeline in mind, it makes sense that taping would just be starting now.

SJP’s ties to HBO have been strong ever since SATCeven though she reportedly tried to drop out of the project way back when.

Tom Ford to Stage Show During London Collections: Men

FORD FORGES AHEAD: Tom Ford will unveil his fall 2016 men’s collection at London Collections: Men in January for the first time in a show format.
Ford, who usually holds appointments in his studio for press and buyers to view his men’s collections, has a provisional slot on the calendar for Jan. 11 at 6:30 p.m., and the British Fashion Council is set to confirm the final schedule on Dec. 7.
According to a Ford spokeswoman, a decision on how the collection will be presented has not been made at this time.
Ford, who did not stage a runway show or presentation for his women’s spring 2016 collection, took it to the small screen last month with a  video shot by Nick Knight that featured Lady Gaga.
Ford is working on his second film, “Nocturnal Animals,” an adaptation of the 1993 novel “Tony and Susan” by Austin Wright starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie is due for release next year.

‘Serial,’ The Podcast Obsession Of 2014, To Become A TV Show

When the “Serial” craze first got going last fall, one of the things you would hear from  listeners trying to get you on board was that the podcast was as compelling as a TV show. And it was true: once you started listening, the thirst for new installments rivaled the thirst for new episodes of great shows like “The Good Wife” and “Game of Thrones.”

Looks like Hollywood (being Hollywood) isn’t willing to cede such compulsiveness to public radio. Deadline reported today that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller — the writing-and-directing duo behind comedic hits like “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street” — are adapting “Serial” into a scripted TV series. Several of the podcast’s producers, including Season 1 host Sarah Koenig, “This American Life” host Ira Glass and “Serial” co-producer Julie Snyder, will be executive producers on the show. 

“Chris and Phil take an unexpected approach to telling stories and that is so appealing to us at ‘Serial,'” Snyder said in a statement. “Developing a show with them is exciting because we feel like we speak the same language, only they’re smarter than us.”

There were rumors, for a while, that producers might adapt the content of “Serial” Season 1 – the murder of teenager Hae-Min Lee and the subsequent dubious conviction of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed — into a movie. But Lord and Miller’s show will take a different tack. It will focus, instead, on the making of the podcast. And it apparently won’t be about the original podcast’s first season. It’s not yet clear whether it will be based on some upcoming season – such as the upcoming one, reportedly on ex-POW Bowe Bergdahl – or a fictional season of their own devising.

A show about a group of podcast producers doesn’t sound all that exciting on the face of it. But Lord and Miller specialize in adapting unpromising material — schlocky ’80s TV shows, plotless children’s books, blocks — into thrilling narratives. So if anyone can do it, it’s them.

Get a Look at All The Crazy Bags and Accessories from the Moschino Spring 2016 Show

We’re at that mid-point of fashion month, where we’ve seen the stunning (Givenchy), the cerebral (Gucci), and the sexy (Fausto Puglisi), but what we all really need right now is a nice, long, giggle. Enter the comic relief, Jeremy Scott. Never one to take himself too seriously in the oh-so-serious work of high fashion, the designer presented his Moschino collection on Thursday in Milan in a makeshift carwash. No, that’s not a typo. Let the giggles ensue.

With the theme of carwashes and construction—think, hard hats, caution tape, and street signs—the hotly-anticipated collection ran the gamut from construction worker-inspired neon skirt suits, to colored car wash chamois-inspired fringes. Call it…Home Depot chic?

Hill & Friends Brand Debuts with Pony Show

MY PRETTY PONIES: Designer Emma Hill unveiled Hill & Friends on Sunday with a sumptuous breakfast in the Claridge’s ballroom and a parade of pink, print and a pair of lively ponies.
The event, where models dressed as bellboys carried her bright, punchy bags on silver trays around a table piled high with pink food, marked Hill’s return to fashion after leaving the creative helm of Mulberry in 2013.
The show also featured Hill’s nine-year-old son dressed as a bellboy riding a luggage trolley, and two much less well-behaved miniature Shetland ponies, who broke into a canter mid-way through their stroll around the room and raced backstage, dragging their obliging walker behind them.
The high-energy Hill, who loves her animals, even had a hot pink shovel at the ready in case there were any more surprises.
“Life’s too short – we wanted to offer up a bit of fun,” said the designer, who showed six styles in various combinations. The bags feature a signature lock at the front that’s shaped like a smiley face, with clasps for eyes. When the bag is locked, the eye appears to be winking.
The bags come in bright leather, leopard-print hair calf, and patchworks of the two, and in

Marc Jacobs Switches to Ziegfeld Theatre for Spring Show

MARC’S FOLLIES: Liza premiered “Cabaret” there. Woody Allen chose it to open “Manhattan.” And now the historic Ziegfeld Theatre on West 54th Street will host Marc Jacobs’ spring show.
The designer has chosen the movie house — the last single-screen theater in Manhattan and the site of dozens of premieres and screenings from 1969 to the present — to show his spring collection. It will be the first time since 2004 Jacobs has shown outside of either the Park or the Lexington Avenue armories.
Though a spokesman for the brand was tight-lipped on details — “He’s incredibly protective about elements of the show,” the spokesman said, referring to Jacobs — this one looks to be something of a production. One clue might be in the hashtag for social media: #marcjacobspremiere.
In fact, to allow guests time to absorb all the elements of the setup, doors will open earlier than usual, at 5:15 p.m. and the show will begin at 6 p.m. on the dot.

Kanye’s Decision to Show Disrupts Designers’ Plans

Kanye West’s show, a last-minute addition to New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at noon, is causing headaches for at least one fashion designer. Anne Bowen, who planned to launch her new streetwear collection, Nomad VII by Anne Bowen, at the exact same time, is up in arms and scrambling to reschedule.
Another headache: Naeem Khan is also scheduled to show in Kayne’s new time slot.
Bowen told WWD: “We have been prepping for a year for this at considerable financial, labor and commitment cost to our company. Our show date has been scheduled for months and has been on the Fashion Calendar for weeks. We went through all the proper channels to make this a reality. And just yesterday we learned that Kanye West is having a show at the same time on the same date as ours.”
“Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. It’s like we are David and he is Goliath. We have put our heart and soul into our show, and should not be stepped on like this,” continued Bowen.
Consequently, Bowen said she has to move her show date to Thursday, Sept. 17 at 12:30 at the

Jeremy Scott Teams With Melissa on Runway Show Shoes

MAN MADE: If the music at Jeremy Scott’s forthcoming runway show in New York comes blaring from the speakers singing, “Life in plastic, it’s fantastic” — the infamous lyrics from Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” — it wouldn’t be without good reason. That’s because at Scott’s Sept. 14 show, models’ feet will be bound in plastic shoes — designed in collaboration between Scott and Brazilian plastic footwear brand Melissa.
Scott — who will make his fashion week appearance straight off a noted involvement with MTV’s Video Music Awards — designed two Melissa-produced shoes for his spring show. Further information regarding their make, appearance and retail availability could not be learned.
In teaming with Melissa, Scott joins the Brazilian brand’s past collaborators including Vivienne Westwood and Karl Lagerfeld.

A staircase leads to an empty lot where a building once stood; a piano sits outside on a sunny day, unplayed and sharing space with a pile of tires. The photographer captures scenes from around the city, and the lingering effects of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation are everywhere.   

“I wanted to create a sense of what it was like and how it impacted everybody,” said Spielman, whose photographs are collected in the book The Katrina Decade: Images of an Altered Citywhich was released this summer. Some of the images are currently on display in an accompanying exhibition at the Historic New Orleans Collection.

Spielman set out to capture the overlooked areas of the city.

“One of the things that I think is very, very important, is, sadly, the media has kind of construed Katrina’s primary damage to the Lower 9th Ward,” he told The Huffington Post. “They fail to fully capture the fact that over 80 percent of the city of New Orleans was flooded.”

“Hopefully,” he added, “people will start to realize that Katrina was an equal and ecumenical destruction.” 

The 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina won’t mark the end of Spielman’s efforts to depict a long and wide-ranging view of a changing New Orleans. He has been photographing his city for four decades and says he plans to continue “until the day before I die.” 

“The event was the hurricane. The story was the aftermath,” Spielman said.

A few of Spielman’s photographs depict people, but his focus is mostly on the city’s architecture and “the battle between nature and the destruction.”

“Although there are no people in the pictures, you know when you look at those houses covered in vines, that was somebody’s home,” he said. “So when you think about these houses that have been around for well over 100 years, you think of the generations of people.”

The collection of black and white images (shot on film, with a Leica camera) is ambiguous, evading easy description. That’s partially intentional for Spielman, who contrasts his quiet scenes with some of the more dramatic portrayals of New Orleans after the storm hit.

In his book, Spielman quotes the photographer Robert Frank, one of his major influences. He recited the quote from memory in our phone interview: “Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”

Through the rich and numerous shades of gray in his photographs, Spielman captures a blend of that hope and despair: The storm has passed, but left an indelible mark on New Orleans.

How One Man Gamed Instagram To Show Support For #FreeTheNipple

James Shamsi is on a mission to free the nipple on Instagram — or at least point out the social platform’s murky policies when it comes to “acceptable” nudity. Like many women (and a few good men) before him, Shamsi noticed the double standard applied to men and women’s nipples on Instagram. Namely, women’s nipples are censored, while men’s are not. 

“I realized the absurdity in the over-sexualization of the female nipple,” Shamsi told The Huffington Post via email. “I wanted to show Instagram just how silly their own policies were by showing them how easily male nipples could be interpreted as female — and with the greater aim of highlighting the fact that the only real difference [between men’s and women’s nipples] are the weighting we choose to give to female nipples according to labels we arbitrarily assign to them as a society.” 

To test out Instagram’s policies, Shamsi posted the below, cropped photograph of a man’s chest on Instagram.

Since the nipples look as though they could be those of a woman, he suspected that if reported, Instagram would remove the image. He even asked his Facebook friends to report the image so he could test his theory.

⛔⛔⛔ PLEASE REPORT ME (Insta: @jamesshamsi) ⛔⛔⛔I'm doing an experiment on my Instagram (@jamesshamsi).For those of you…

Posted by James Samir Shamsi on Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Unsurprisingly, it worked. Instagram removed the image for being in violation of its Community Guidelines a few hours after it was posted. Shamsi then contacted Instagram, alerting them that the chest they had censored was actually a man’s. Soon after, the post was reinstated. “Instagram reinstated the photo because these were male #facepalm,” Shamsi wrote in a subsequent Instagram post (below). 

Shamsi’s nipple experiment follows a similar campaign first started by Associate Professor Micol Hebron in June 2014. She brilliantly suggested that women simply paste male nipples over their own scandalous lady ones. Problem solved! 

TBT to that time, over a year ago (June 2014) that I posted an image of male nipple and told everyone to put it over…

Posted by Micol Hebron on Friday, July 3, 2015

Instagram seems to realize that creating guidelines for nudity is a seriously fraught process. In a statement to The Daily Dot regarding Shamsi’s photograph, an Instagram spokesperson said:


Standards around nudity vary greatly by culture, country, age, and other factors. Our goal has always been to find a balance between enabling people to express themselves, while also making sure that our large, diverse, global community feels comfortable. Striking the right balance is hard — and examples like this highlight the complexity of this issue. As always, we continue to analyze our policies to make sure that we’re listening to people and meeting the needs of our global community.

In January, Instagram told The Huffington Post that they “recognize that we don’t always get it right” when it comes to nudity on the platform. It looks like they are still grappling with where to draw the line.

‘Intimacy Art Show’ Will Make You Want To Get Close To Somebody

“Intimate”: It’s one of those loaded words that can imply everything from meaningless sex to a revealing, heartfelt conversation. It can sound warm and inviting, but it can also awaken unsettling fears of risk and vulnerability.

Artists Aaron Tsuru and Kate Sweeney, in an August 22 pop-up show they’ve curated at Rabbithole Studio in Brooklyn, NY, lean in to the saccharine and the sharp-edged implications of the term. “Intimacy Art Show,” a first-time curation collaboration from the two artists, who have been friends and collaborators in other forms for several years, captures their shared fascination with the human urge for closeness. “It may mean something a little different for everyone, but we’ve all experienced it in some way or another,” Sweeney told The Huffington Post via email.

The show features photography by both Tsuru and Sweeney, which reveal the poignancy and risk inherent in getting intimate with someone else. But the curators also admitted that they were overwhelmed by the unexpected and revealing submissions they received from other artists.

“‘Jewels from the Hinterland’ … addresses questions of place, belonging, and perceived cultural identity within the African Diaspora,” said Sweeney of a photo series by Naima Green. “There is such a beautiful, deep sense of intimacy with nature.” In her artist’s statement, Green pointed out, “There is a dominant narrative that situates brown bodies in green spaces for work, never for leisure.” Her photographs subvert this, showing black and brown people relaxing and connecting with their natural surroundings.

Tsuru commented on a rather shocking photograph, by Molly Broxton, of herself with her late dog’s fur. “It was just so beautiful and touching and exactly the kind of atypical thinking I was hoping to see,” Tsuru told HuffPost. “Intimacy is many things, it’s letting people or other beings or things into our lives in a deeper more personal way.” 

Intimacy seems like a self-evidently desirable experience, as the loving smiles and tender embraces in many of these works suggest. But it’s also a fraught process for many people, one that invites the possibility of heartbreak, loss and betrayal. At best, intimacy can be weird, occasionally intrusive, exclusionary to those on the outside. Tsuru told HuffPost they want viewers to confront the more difficult aspects of intimacy as well. “We’d love if some of the viewers even felt a little uncomfortable, in a good way, like feeling a bit broken open.”

“In a good way,” of course, is still the operative phrase. “We hope people walk away from the show with more of an open mind about being intimate,” Tsuru added. “The risk is worth the experience.

View more selections from “Intimacy Art Show” below, and if you’re near NYC, head to Brooklyn to enjoy the one-night-only show Saturday, August 22 at Rabbithole Studio. For more from Aaron Tsuru and Kate Sweeney, check out their personal websites.

5 Ways to Show Your Appreciation to Your Partner (and Save Your Relationship in the Process)

2015-08-20-1440090701-4845690-happycouple692725_1280.jpg

Appreciating your partner on a daily basis is a great way to protect your long-term relationship from any number of bummers: cooling off, infidelity, breakups, etc. There are no guarantees, of course: that’s just not the way life and love work. But doing your best to be good to the one you love — and to make them feel good, at least once a day — is a pretty good way to bolster long-term fidelity (however you define “fidelity” in your own personal relationship). Because, let’s face it, fidelity could use a little help these days.

Here are five ways to demonstrate your appreciation to your partner — in other words, this is how to remind your partner that you still notice them. Trust us, noticing goes a long way in a relationship.

1) Notice the Little Things
In the division of household labor, perhaps you always load and unload the dishwasher and your partner always does the laundry. Perhaps you mow the lawn and your partner cleans the bathrooms. But just because you have established a fair breakdown of chores that demonstrates the admirable equality in your relationship, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be grateful. So say thank you for these things. You can say, “Thank you for folding my clothes better than a Gap salesperson,” or you can say, “Thank you for always doing more than your share around the house,” or you can say, “Wow! The lawn looks amazing!” You get the idea. Those chores can become, well, a chore over the years, and everyone assumes that their partner doesn’t notice the jobs they do that are solely their responsibility. Make a point to notice this stuff.

2) Notice the Big Things
Sure, you can say, “Thank you for driving the kids to the bus today,” or “Wow, you must be tired after working all those extra hours this week.” But it’s also nice to go bigger picture sometimes, too. Think: “When I fell in love with you, I believed you’d make an amazing mom/dad. But I didn’t know quite how much you’d rock this role.” Or, “I know you’d rather be writing a screenplay/trying out for a reality TV show/doing CrossFit full-time, but I really appreciate you working for a sucky boss so we can, you know, eat and stuff.” Or, “You have no idea how it improves my mood each morning when you make that awesome pour-over coffee.” Or, “I don’t know how you attend so many kids’ birthday parties, you must be some kind of saint.”

3) Support Your Partner’s Passions
Speaking of that screenplay or that reality TV show or that CrossFit obsession: make time in your relationship to support your partner’s true passions. Many of us — most of us? — aren’t lucky enough to get paid to do what we really love, so do this for each other, instead.  Tell your partner, “Why don’t [fill in the blank: I take the kids/we skip church/you bag your house chores] on Sunday morning, so you can work on your novel/paint/scrapbook/paddle-board/ballroom-dance.” Giving your partner time to pursue these beloved hobbies shows that you still care about their happiness and satisfaction, and that you respect their talents and passions.

4) Compliment Your Partner
It’s simple, basic and old-school, but that doesn’t mean that anyone tires of being complimented on their looks, especially when they’re in a long-term relationship and are not getting that regular flirtatious feedback via the pickup scene. Try, “You look so beautiful this morning.” Or, “You’re hotter than when I met you.” Or, “I love the way your ass looks in those jeans.” And yes, this is a gender-neutral recommendation — men need to hear this stuff just as much as the ladies.

5) Date Your Partner
Life is hard, and life keeps you busy, especially when you’re married with kids. But life was hard and busy in its own way back when you were dating, and you still found time to do stuff and plan stuff then. Make a dinner reservation somewhere. Bring, yes, flowers. (It’s not a cliche if you never do it, right?) Dress up a bit when you go out together (that includes the dudes, too). Come up with new ideas/positions/toys to try out in bed. Send sexy texts. Send romantic texts. Read out loud to each other in bed (not necessarily erotica, though that’s cool, too). Discuss culture, politics and your hopes and dreams as well as day-to-day logistics. Make a five-year plan together, and a ten-year plan and a twenty-year plan. And make sure that these plans include big dreams and life goals as well as the practical stuff like saving for kids’ college educations. Most of all, though: ask your partner questions, and really listen to their answers. It’s called conversation. Remember it?

Misha Nonoo Forgoes Runway Show for Instagram Presentation

DIVING INTO DIGITAL: Misha Nonoo’s brand will skip a traditional runway format this upcoming spring 2016 show season. Instead, the label will hold a “digital-only” presentation. The brand says that it will leverage Instagram to present its new designs.
Nonoo was not available for comment, as she is presently traveling abroad. Her spokesperson was unable to make an official statement in Nonoo’s absence, but did confirm that while additional details for the presentation are unavailable — the brand will indeed present a “full collection” online.

25 Candid Photos That Show Breastfeeding Is Beautiful, Wherever You Nurse

After photos from her Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project (PABP) spread widely across the Internet last August, photographer and mom of four Leilani Rogers is continuing to normalize the sight of nursing and support lactating moms.

In honor of National Breastfeeding Awareness Month this year, Rogers recruited over 70 photographers in the U.S., Australia, Italy, U.K., Venezuela and Canada to take pictures of moms nursing their children in public places like libraries, parks, stadiums and grocery stores. She’s also invited other parents and photographers to share their own breastfeeding images on the project’s Facebook page or on their own social media accounts with the hashtag #PBAP2015.

Rogers was inspired by her own experiences with breastfeeding to launch the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project in 2014, she told The Huffington Post. Though she overcame challenges with mastitis, bad latches, low supply, plugged ducts, thrush, staph infections and more, she says the one issue she was never able to face was her fear of breastfeeding in public. 

“I avoided it at all costs,” the mom said, explaining that she feared stares and judgment from strangers so much that she retreated to her house and made life more difficult by planning everything around each baby’s feeding schedule. “I wish I could go back and tell my former self not to care so much about what other people thought. Not to be ashamed of my body. Not to be self-conscious about openly doing what nature intended.”

Rogers hopes the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project will empower moms by offering the support and community she wished she had. She also believes it may help break down the struggles breastfeeding moms face, not only in nursing successfully but also in overcoming societal barriers and expectations. ”Society’s support is paramount to a breastfeeding mother’s success,” she said. “Mothers are hiding in their cars, restrooms, sometimes not leaving their homes at all — because they do not want to face the kind of public scrutiny that causes someone to file a complaint with managers and store owners about a woman breastfeeding in a public place.”

By encouraging other moms to participate in PBAP photo sessions or follow the project’s Facebook page, she hopes they will gain the confidence to nurse in public. Rogers would also like her images to reach non-parents. ”My hope is that seeing these images will help desensitize them, or even reprogram their thinking that breasts are sexual and that breastfeeding is an extension of that. It’s not,” she said.

“Perhaps you haven’t witnessed a mother breastfeeding in public before,” she continued. “You’re not sure what you would do if you happened to turn the corner in the grocery store and run right into a mother juggling her life with a breastfeeding child in tow. These images also serve the purpose of positive, gentle exposure.”

Keep scrolling for a sample of the beautiful images of mothers nursing their babies in public from photographers across the globe.

Jimmy Fallon To Host ‘Tonight Show’ For Six More Years

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Just a few months after Jimmy Fallon marked his first anniversary as host of “The Tonight Show,” NBC has signed him for six more years.

Calling him “the best there is,” NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said Fallon, who turns 41 next month, will occupy the “Tonight” host chair until at least 2021.

Speaking to TV critics on Thursday, Greenblatt also announced that Rihanna will join “The Voice” as key adviser to the panel of judges, who will be Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell and Gwen Stefani.

He said new additions to the cast of the holiday production of “The Wiz Live!” include “Hairspray” co-star Elijah Kelley (in the role of the Scarecrow), singer-songwriter-actor Ne-Yo (as the Tin Man) and Oscar-winning songwriter and actor Common, who will play the Gatekeeper to Emerald City.

Previously announced cast members in the musical production, airing live Dec. 3, include Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, David Alan Grier, Uzo Aduba, Amber Riley, Stephanie Mills and Shanice Williams as Dorothy.

Greenblatt also had two words on whether Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump would ever return as host of “The Celebrity Apprentice”: “Absolutely not.”

Greenblatt said the show will not be back next season, but will return in the future with a new host. He didn’t speculate on whom that host might be, but said, “We’re obviously looking for a host who will make noise and is a big personality.”

Elizabeth Livingston’s Paintings Come Out of Darkness With Solo Show ‘Night Fell’ in LES

Every summer, on a town in the very northwestern corner of Connecticut — a community of roughly 1,700 people, a farmer’s market and some acclaimed Berkshire hiking trails — a rough-hewn group of artists descend.

During the six-week course, instructors of Yale’s Art and Music School in Norfolk polish their charges into refined visionaries — the next Chuck Close or Kehinde Wiley. In 1998, Elizabeth Livingston, at the time a Yale undergraduate, arrived ready for the rigor — and found herself working at night, under a pale streetlamp, painting the dark, isolated clapboard houses surrounding the town.

“I would look at the houses in the dark and wonder how can something be so beautiful and precious and detached and terrifying at the same time, and moreover, how would I reconcile these aspects in my painting?” Livingston said recently in her DUMBO studio. “A professor who, at first, called my work garbage came around and said ‘I think you’re on to something, here’.”

For the next 15 years, Livingston worked at resolving the contrasts in her photorealistic paintings — mostly portraits of her friends, sister and self in detached or solitary moments — and showed at galleries all over New England. This month, however, she exhibits the isolation and solitude — the anxiety and the allure — of modern life’s continuum at the Lodge Gallery in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

Entitled Night Fell, after one of her pieces, it is the artist’s first solo New York show.

2015-08-12-1439353961-627162-NightFell.jpg

“Liz takes great pleasure in peeling back veneers of suburban order to capture intimate moments,” said Jason Patrick Voegele, one of the founders of the Lodge Gallery and the instigator of the show. “Her most recent body of work evokes all the same cinematic emphasis on visual scrutiny and moments of false security — much like a Hitchcock or Vermeer.”

“There is a shared suspense in these voyeuristic moments, a sense of the quiet before the storm or the last rays of light before night arrives.”

As one of her influences, Edward Hopper, Livingston has been called a realist, but her works manifest the ways in which memory infuses her surroundings: mostly the material memorial of suburban Connecticut, just outside New York City. Hopper told the Smithsonian Institution in 1959 that his “aim in painting has always been the most exact transcription possible of my most intimate impressions of nature.” So is Livingston’s.

Raised “solidly middle class” in New Canaan, Connecticut — a city with one of the highest GDPs in the country — Livingston witnessed the “whole Stepford Wives thing” or “how something could appear so charming and so perfect, yet underneath have such a darkness and a vulnerability.” Livingston deeply felt the loneliness, guardedness and illusion of community in her youth and at Yale began to paint figures that expressed it.

Of two key pieces at the Lodge Gallery, Wedding Day, in which she is portrayed sleeping nestled under plush bedding, and Before I Could Answer, a six-foot by seven-foot self-portrait of herself in a turquoise pool, Livingston said “we are most exposed when we feel the most protected.” She has placed her viewers as voyeurs: in one instance watching the intimate ambiguity before a life milestone and in the other, a contemplative moment preceding another significant decision.

Livingston, who is generally introspective and reserved, said only of the latter: “It represents being out on a limb.

“Pools are so brilliantly lit at night that everything around them disappears into black. It lends to that precarious feeling.”

That general reluctance toward averment has, perhaps, kept Livingston away from the necessary self-promotion required for the coveted New York scene since she earned an MFA in painting at Boston University. But her pursuit of a regular life outside painting – one that many artists eschew — had also previously kept her from straying too far from the galleries in Boston and New Haven and producing another significant body of work.

Not long after settling in Brooklyn and giving birth to her son, however, Livingston felt a twinge in her right hand that required a stroke of a paintbrush. Although she made two self-portraits during her pregnancy — Waiting, which shows a pregnant Livingston turning out a lamp, and the discordant Hurricane, a meditation on Hurricane Sandy — she temporarily abandoned the figure painting for her reclusive houses.

2015-08-12-1439353885-1060949-Hurricane.jpg

After meeting Voegele at several art fairs and turning down his requests for work, Livingston presented him with these portraits and Night Fell, a painting of a quaint two floor, porch-lit Connecticut home that is both stable and vulnerable, and surrounded by the lush detail of the encroaching rural landscape.

“I had started seeing the house as a vessel for the family, rather than an isolated figure. But I always seem to go to the opposite side of the ways in which most people think — how nothing treasured is going to last forever,” Livingston said. “”A small country home at dusk with the porch light on reads both as a safe house and as defenseless outpost against the dark woods surrounding it.”

That Livingston paints the ambiguity about life most people generally gloss over or cast aside could possibly constitute her appeal in a world that grows more and more uncertain. Or as Voegele suggests, “Her scene juxtapositions are rendered impeccably, and our patrons really relate to her experience.”

Either way, whether building or person, country or city, Livingston doesn’t envision ever letting go of the artist’s sensibility instilled in her. “I somehow always return to this exploration of the idea that the more ‘safe’ and protected our lives, the more vulnerable we actually are.”

How Not to Kill Your Awards Show

David Ahearn is co-founder of Four Day Weekend.

Our comedy group, Four Day Weekend, has had the honor and pleasure of performing at corporate awards banquets for more than a decade. Typically, we were hired to perform after the awards, which meant we were invariably met with a very challenging room. So we were forced to figure out how to take a bit more control of the outcome of the event, and thus our interstitial show was invented.

It’s like the Oscars telecast. We open by interviewing an attendee, transition into an improvised song, and the show is off and running, with the Four Day Weekend hosts handing out the awards.

At various points during the ceremony we take a break from the awards portion of the show to perform one of our comedy routines. The format is a win for everyone, because awardees are honored while the audience is entertained throughout the evening.

Along the way, we’ve discovered some tips, tricks and tools for meeting planners and producers. Here are three:

1. Shrink the Centerpiece

Those large ornamental table decorations look amazing — and also block the action on stage. When the husband’s or wife’s or parent’s or friend’s name is finally announced, that looming feather table piece that looks like a costume Cher wore to the actual Oscars in the 80s might be right in the way.

This creates a giant disconnection with the audience, which makes them ultimately turn to the person sitting next to them and start talking. Soon these amazing table ornaments have single-handedly created apathy for those watching the production. Want to take a picture of your special loved one who is receiving their award after a lifetime of hard work to get to this moment? Not if the NBC Peacock has anything to do with it.

Tip: Keep your centerpieces small and elegant, and allow people to see the production on stage. This is why they came to the event. Consider setting the room for the production and not to make the room look like the most amazing prom night any adult could ever hope for. Let our award winners be the stars and not a headdress Björk would wear for her upcoming concert.

2. Beware the Comedy Moat

When you set up the dance floor in front of the stage you create a huge chasm between your audience and the stage. We like to call this the “comedy moat.” It is the 50-foot space between the people on the stage and the audience that ignores them, because they forgot to bring their opera glasses for the performance. We understand that you want to have the dance floor close to the stage so that at the end of the night when everyone is singing “Sweet Caroline,” our middle-aged dancers can interact with the band. We also know this doesn’t actually happen, and that the minute the band strikes up, the room clears like a Gulf Coast city after a Category 5 Hurricane Warning. That stage looks like Kim Kardashian’s spiritual journal — one empty space after the next. Forget about it.

The awards event, the event that everyone came for, will last between 90 minutes and two hours, and the room gets set to accommodate the 11 people that will dance after that event. Consider moving the stage to the back of the room, and at the end of the awards ceremony have your emcee direct everyone’s attention to the back of the room where the dancing will begin. This way, our closest VIP tables truly will be at the front of the stage and all of the attention of the room will be placed on the most important aspect of the evening: your award winners.

3. Eat First

Nothing, let me repeat, nothing competes with food. Stephen Hawking could take the first step out of his wheelchair in years and if people are eating no one would notice. Nothing kills a performance or an awards banquet more quickly than the clanking of silverware while the VP of sales tries to engage the audience with his/her latest “that’s what she said” joke. (We know you saw “The Office,” Mr./Ms. VP. We all did. And for the record, they were making fun of people who say, “That’s what she said.”)

For all the people at the event who are not receiving an award the highlight is pretty much the free meal and open bar. People are hungry when they arrive. Their teambuilding session took a lot out of them and most of them can’t believe they lost the bike-building contest to the western region. When is the east going to get the respect they deserve?

Let the people coming to the event eat, drink, and impress their co-workers first. Once dinner is out of the way the plus-ones and also-rans will be more inclined to watch the guy who won the award instead of them. (Bitter is better on a full tummy.)

If you pre-set desserts and then have a five-minute Voice of God announcement that the program will soon begin, you can tell your banquet captain to suspend service during the awards ceremony. This will draw the attention of the audience back to the stage where we can now honor all of the awardees and the producers and crew can get back to making fun of the talent with headset chatter. (We know you make fun of us. It’s O.K., we know we are soft and entitled. We can handle it.)

These are just some friendly tips from they guys who take the stage and are out on the frontlines of combat for you. Oh, and one more small note: please try to keep rehearsals to less than an hour. And for the love of God, don’t have a rehearsal to talk about the rehearsal.

These Photos Show The Beautifully Unique Ways These People Express Their Gender

The world is certainly changing for queer people.

From more and more people being able to live as their authentic selves to ensuring rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community via legislation, the last few years have seen especially overwhelming progress in terms of the growing cultural awareness surrounding this community.

A new photography book from Bernd Ott and Emily Besa aims to capture this reality through photos and stories of over 36 individuals who identify at different points along the spectrum of gender identity. Called All The People, the book features individuals from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany and the United States who all uniquely transcend traditional notions of gender.

“We hope that some will see that your identity is not defined by socially introduced categorizations,” Ott told The Huffington Post. “Once we can see categories as being arbitrary and meaningless, some may realize that we all share very similar fears and emotions and the same worries and feelings determine our existence. We actually share the same human experience despite what we look like, who we love, or how we love.”

Check out photos from All The People below, as well as an interview with Ott and Besa. All The People is also engaged in a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund its publication — head here for more information.

Bruce Springsteen Totally Rocked Jon Stewart’s Final ‘Daily Show’

After a final talk with the viewers, Jon Stewart was ready to throw over to the final Moment of Zen. His Moment of Zen: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

They took “The Daily Show” studio stage and completely rocked our faces off with “Born to Run” and “Land of Hope and Dreams,” a song from Springsteen’s album “Wrecking Ball.”

 And for a kid from New Jersey, who would grow up to become one of the most loved and respected comedians of our time, a performance from the Boss was perhaps the perfect send-off.

Ralph Lauren Stages Children’s Fall Fashion Show at Central Park Zoo

CUTE OVERLOAD: New York’s Central Park Zoo was transformed into a Neverland-themed playground for Ralph Lauren’s kid’s fashion show on Wednesday night as stylish uptown moms and their tots flooded the outdoor space to watch several dozen pint-size runway models show off looks from the fall collection. In addition to 12-year-old Levi Miller — who stars alongside Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara in the upcoming film “Pan” — the cast also included 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler of “Dance Moms” fame. “There are a lot of rising stars here,” said David Lauren, executive vice president of advertising, marketing and communications for the company, after the show. “We cast through friends and family, but there are a couple of young people that are aspiring actors and actresses. When we did this years ago, Jennifer Connelly walked the show. And of course [tonight] there is Levi [Miller], who’s gonna be the biggest star in the world soon.”
The boys and girls collection included tons of preppy staples — such as American flag sweaters, plaid skirts, varsity jackets, herringbone blazers and sock-less loafers aplenty — but a cool skater vibe also ran throughout the looks. There were slouchy jeans, cargo jackets and hoodies accessorized with beanies, fingerless gloves and

92 Gorgeous Photos That Show What It Really Means To Be Trans

 

Last summer, HuffPost Gay Voices asked transgender people to share photos of themselves on Twitter using the hashtag #WhatTransLooksLike in an effort to show just how diverse — and beautiful! — the trans community is.

We were absolutely gobsmacked by the response we received. In fact, people were so excited about #WhatTransLooksLike that we received countless requests for us to do another call out.

So, that’s exactly what we did. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. In the 12 months since our first #WhatTransLooksLike story, the “transgender tipping point” has tipped even further. 

From Caitlyn Jenner’s gorgeous Vanity Fair cover and emotional ESPY Awards speech to Jazz Jenning’s reality TV show debut to news that transgender soldiers may soon be able to openly serve in the military, we’ve continued to see stunning wins for the trans community in the last year.

Of course, there’s much work left to do. Trans people still face inordinately high levels of prejudice and are regularly targeted for violence. And while representations in the media of what it means to be trans are becoming more varied and nuanced, for the most part, the images, stories and experiences of trans people still do not receive the attention they deserve.

So, for all of those reasons — and because we simply wanted to showcase another collection of beautiful photos — we bring you #WhatTransLooksLike2.

Mom Uses Fruits And Veggies To Show How Much Her Baby Grew During Pregnancy

When California designer and home decor shop owner Nicole Mendez was pregnant with her second child, she came up with a great way to document her growing belly.

Inspired by BabyCenter’s “How big is your baby?” list, which uses corresponding fruits and vegetables to track a fetus’ size throughout pregnancy, Mendez purchased the produce and held each one in front of her stomach at various times during her nine months.

“Having something tangible to hold up to your belly really helps you to visualize your baby’s size, and makes you realize how fast they grow!” she told The Huffington Post.

New ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Posters Show The Cast Ready For Battle

A new collection of “Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” posters has been released, showing the cast decked out in war paint and ready for battle.  

The series of images is titled “Faces of the Revolution” and features portraits of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Cressida (Natalie Dormer), Johanna (Jena Malone), Finnick (Sam Clafin), Prim (Willow Shields) and Boggs (Mahershala Ali), their faces painted with a red mockingjay. 

Entertainment Weekly shared Gale’s poster, which shows him staring straight at the viewer, his eyes a piercing blue, with the words “Brothers Unite” and “The revolution is about all of us” printed across the bottom of the frame. 

Katniss’ poster is equally dramatic, with her intense stare evoking the strength and determination that made her “The Mockingjay” in the first place. 

All eight posters are being released by Lionsgate on July 6 via the film’s official Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. Comicbook.com has them all in one place for your viewing pleasure. 

The posters come just a few days before Comic-Con, where the cast will be on hand for a Q&A about the final film in the franchise. 

If only they’d release the movie already. Five months to go …

Afloat Once More on San Francisco Opera’s Show Boat…and in Its Wake, ‘Sweeney Todd’

I just had one of the best opera experiences of my life, attending San Francisco Opera’s terrific production of The Trojans, with its gorgeous music by Hector Berlioz, monumental sets and some of the best singers performing today. (While the run for both The Trojans and Two Women has ended, this summer’s third production, The Marriage of Figaro, has one last performance on Sunday afternoon.) It made my summer, but more on all that soon.

Last summer, the opera-going highlight for me was something entirely different: Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein‘s Show Boat. That production was filmed and is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, so you have a chance to see and enjoy what I did.

Some regular opera goers, of course, were disappointed to find this musical on the short summer lineup. I certainly understand the lack of appeal of many typical Broadway musicals, with their often generic, bombastic, less than nuanced, over-miked voices. But as SFO’s delightful Porgy and Bess, which I saw in 2009, and Show Boat prove, a well-done production, with vibrant sets and costumes, good dancing, engaging acting, a top-tier orchestra (guest conductor John DeMain led the San Francisco Opera Orchestra for both Porgy and Bess and Show Boat), and singers with fine operatic voices, can be absolutely exhilarating. Think of Ezio Pinza on the cast album of South Pacific. Some enchanted evening, indeed!

Thus: Show Boat. Soprano Heidi Stober, who played Magnolia, daughter of the riverboat’s Cap’n Andy, had performed here not long before in The Magic Flute and Falstaff. Star soprano Patricia Racette sang Julie, the showboat’s leading lady, who passes for white until her mixed parentage is revealed, in the same SFO summer season in which she was Madama Butterfly. Bass Morris Robinson offered a show-stopping “Ol’ Man River,” and personally, I can’t wait to see baritone Michael Todd Simpson, who made his local debut as Gaylord Ravenal, the charming gambler who marries Magnolia, again.

A cool thing about this production, though, is that Broadway actors were cast as well. Who wouldn’t want to see the great physical actor Bill Irwin as Cap’n Andy? His hilarious one-man depiction of a fistfight is a showstopper in itself. (Speaking of versatility, Irwin won a Tony in 2005 for playing George in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf!). The Broadway vets include Kirsten Wyatt (the lead in Sweet Charity, Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls), John Bolton (Spamalot, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, TV’s Gossip Girls), and Harriet Harris (On the Town, Tony winner for Thoroughly Modern Millie, the indelible Bebe Glazer on TV’s Frasier). James Asher, in a small role as the manager of the seedy Chicago cabaret in which Magnolia finds work after the dead-broke Ravenal leaves her, has acted in plays such as Love’s Labour’s Lost and The Laramie Project.

That’s a lot of names and credits. My point is that the variety of actors and voices and styles adds another level of interest and enjoyment to this show. Which must lead to a shout-out for Tod Nixon, Show Boat‘s sound designer. Unlike musical theater performers, opera singers don’t use mikes; Nixon came up with a way of placing area microphones so that the sound was consistent and clear, without that somewhat tinny, vibrating quality that microphones bring.

Premiering in 1927, Show Boat is considered the first great American musical. In 1982, Houston Grand Opera, then led by San Francisco Opera general director David Gockley, with John DeMain as its music director and principal conductor, created an “historic” production that restored much of Kern and Hammerstein’s original score and dialogue. We saw this production of Show Boat thanks to Houston Grand Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Washington National Opera, as well as SFO.

In his program notes, Gockley reminded us that Show Boat is “steeped in the musical language and plot issues of our native culture” and said that it could open the door at SFO to “operatic musicals” such as Carousel and Sweeney Todd. It did! Gockley’s final season with San Francisco’s great opera company opens in September with Verdi’s Luisa Miller, followed immediately by Stephen Sondheim’s delicious Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Yay!

July 5, The Marriage of Figaro; September 11, Luisa Miller opening night; September 12, Sweeney Todd opening night, War Memorial Opera House, 301 Van Ness Ave., S.F., 415.861.4008, sfopera.com.

Ron Diamond’s Animation Show of Shows Coming to Comic-Con, Getting Ready for Nationwide Debut

Toon fans rejoice! The Animation Show of Shows will soon be coming to a theater near you.

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter, this animation industry favorite will now transition from being an insider-only exclusive to becoming a program that film fans around the world can participate in and enjoy.

2015-07-02-1435865026-7316782-Diamond2.jpg

For those of you who don’t know: The Animation Show of Shows has long been Ron Diamond‘s baby. For the past 16 years, this veteran animation producer has circled the globe seeking out the very best new animated short films. Which sounds like it might be a fun way for a cinema fan to spend their time, but is actually a quite challenging task.

“Just recently, I sat through a screening of over 200 student films. All because I was looking for those one or two short animated films that I might consider adding to the line-up on my next Animation Show of Shows,” Ron explained during a recent phone interview.

And previously — once Diamond has selected all of that year’s animated gems — he’d then truck this feature-length compilation to animation studios like Disney, Pixar and Blue Sky. All with the hope that — by exposing these creatives to what the next generation of animators was up to — he’d then inspire these folks to explore unexpected ideas.”

2015-07-02-1435865079-1292332-Diamond3.jpg

“And while I don’t mean to brag, I think that I’ve got a pretty good eye for this stuff. 29 of the films that I’ve showcased in previous Animation Show of Shows have gone on to get Academy Award nominations. And 9 of those animated short films then went on to win the Oscar,” Ron continued.

But after 16 years of annually assembling this great collection of animated short films which was then meant to educate and inspire industry insiders, Diamond was looking to broaden his horizons. He wanted the general public to now be able to get in on the fun. Which is why Ron set up a not-for-profit organization that would then make it possible to The Animation Show of Shows to expand its mission.

“After all, it’s one thing to show these new animated short films to industry insiders who then might have some knowledge of who these fledgling filmmakers are, the reputations of their teachers and/or their independent work. And it’s an entirely different thing to show these great new animated short films to an audience that’s going in cold. That has absolutely no context when it comes to who these filmmakers are and where the ideas for each of these new animated shorts may have come from,” Diamond stated.

2015-07-02-1435865118-6502741-Diamond1.jpg

That was what really drove Ron to get a Kickstarter campaign going for the Animation Show of Shows. If he was going to transform this showcase of new animated short films into something that members of the general film-going public could genuinely understand and appreciate … Well, that then meant that Diamond would have to craft profiles of the talented individuals who had created these animated short films. And given that Ron prides himself on always putting together a program that represents what is going on internationally in animation that year, that then meant Diamond was going to need to send film crews around the globe to create these contextual pieces that would profile that year’s top animators.

Thanks to the generous pledges of the people who supported Ron’s vision for a more ambitious, broader reaching Animation Show of Shows, those profiles will now be included in Diamond’s next feature-length compilation of the finest animated shorts from around the world. Not only that, but Ron will be using these funds to expand into the field of restoration. Singling out great animated short films from the past that need to be preserved and shared.

By the way, if you’re headed to San Diego next week for the 2015 edition of Comic-Con and want to get a sense of the sort of show that Ron Diamond plans on presenting very soon at a theater near you, the 16th Annual Animation Show of Shows will be presented in Hall H on Friday, July 10th from 10 – 11:30 a.m. Hopefully — as part of the Q & A session that’s supposed to follow this presentation — Diamond will then discuss his plans for this award-winning series of animated short films.

‘Cosmic Consultants’ Starsky + Cox Hit New York With Musical Show For Summer Solstice

The world’s “psychics to the stars” will take to the New York stage just in time for the summer solstice.

Real-life married couple Stella Starsky and Quinn Cox, known internationally as Starsky + Cox, put a comic (and musical) twist on the age-old art of astrology in “Starring: A Midsummer’s Evening of Entertaining Enlightenment,” which hits Joe’s Pub at New York’s Public Theater on June 21. The pair, who you may recognize from their appearances on “Chelsea Lately,” VH1 and MTV, promise the new show will “seamlessly marry the high and low, the esoteric and the pop, the sexy and sublime, the cosmic and the comic.”

The Huffington Post spoke with Starsky + Cox, who are the authors of the beloved best-seller, Sextrology, via email about the new show, how gender and sexuality play into astrology and whether or not star signs can really impact romantic compatibility.

What surprises can we expect from your show, “Starring”?
Well we suppose it’s a surprise in itself that you can catch a couple of cosmic comics with a metaphysical music act performing live at Joe’s Pub, although we have done so for over five years. But people are probably most amazed by the audience interaction. Total strangers will have sent us their birth stats and we read their astrological charts live on the spot. They might expect us to poke fun, improvising with them, but what is most stupifying is how freakily accurate we can be. It’s not a Starsky + Cox show unless we see some shock beneath the laughter. And of course our sketches and patter strike chords of truthiness even if they seem to come from outer space. People find it surprising that they can belly laugh at jokes about high-minded subjects like mythology or the multiverse.


How do gender and sexuality play into astrology? How would, for example, a gay man’s astrological chart differ from that of a straight person who is born on the same day?

It’s all about archetype. The whole premise of our book Sextrology which is subtitled The Astrology of Sex and the Sexes is foremost about gender and sexuality. A person born on the same day in the same place at the same exact time will have the same chart as you do. And they will inherit the same archetypal ingredients. However, there is a spectrum, a paradoxical nature, to every placement of a planet in a sign in an astrological house in a person’s chart. (Think of twins. They can have an almost exact birth chart, but they tend to gravitate to different polarities within their astrological make-up, to express their individuality, in relief. Still, there are so many examples of twins who were separated at birth leading lives, down to the most minute detail, that are similar.)

In general terms of sun-sign astrology there are a number of archetypes assigned to each of the signs In our book Sextrology separate male signs from female signs into 24 instead of the traditional 12. But within, say, the male sign of Sagittarius, there are a number of archetypes on which that individual might draw, in sweeping terms. And we start with the classic archetypes, those of the gods and demigods, who are really just personifications of energy, characters that echo through fairytales and literature, film and drama, television and comic books, and whose energy we, as living-breathing people also take on. Of course, sitting with a client and looking at their individual chart we can go infinitely deeper in the exploration of their individual selves.

I hear so much talk of not signing contracts, etc. during mercury retrograde, for example. How much would you say that a person should (or shouldn’t) rely on astrology when making major life decisions?
In our private consultancy, we never tell a client they should or should not do a particular thing. We explore the landscape of potentiality available to them at any given time, to help them make informed decisions with eyes wide open.

That said, this last Mercury retrograde that ended last week was a total ass kicker and we were pretty verbal about letting things wait that could wait. Not because the outcome would be unfavorable—Mercury doesn’t have much control over that—but, named for the trickster god, that planet can mess with our heads in the process, throwing monkey wrenches in our path. But even so: the effects of Mercury are designed to keep our minds sharp, while making us more flexible and versatile in our approach to circumstance. Tough love from a tiny planet.

Astrological compatibility between partners — important, or no? Is this any more or less significant in same-sex relationships? Can a couple who are astrologically opposed somehow make it work?
Without zeroing in on the specific charts of two actual individuals who are in an intimate relationship, and just speaking, as we do in our books, in general terms of sun-sign astrology, there are still some pretty specific peaks and valleys endemic to a certain relationship between sex signs. This was the premise of our second book, Cosmic Coupling, to which, much to our chagrin, our publisher would only dedicate a single page to same sex relationships, whilst straight relationships were given full spreads. No pun intended. (The limiting and omitting of gay content in our books has seen us pull it from markets like Russia and has informed our choices, moving forward, in the traditional publishing world.)

But to answer your question: Every relationship can work. Different signs tend to access or spotlight different parts of our own personalities, in broad terms, and the emphasis of the relationship will vary, depending on the sign combination. We tend to play different roles in relationship with different signs. And just as we might find ourselves being attracted to a person of a particular sign, time and again, or they to us, we are often quite aware which relationships are sustainable or combustible as the case may be.

How would an astrological chart differ for a transgender person as opposed to gay or straight?
Again the chart doesn’t change and we think the question you’re asking is: can it be that a straight person and a gay person and a transgender person all born in exactly the same place at the exact instant have the same chart — which they do — and the answer would be yes. The zodiac is a pretty amazing, age-old, timeless mandala for existence. And it has always seemed to know things that we modern folk only then “discover” via math or the sciences, in time.

The astrological system sees sexuality and gender as being far more fluid than our overly categorial minds will often allow. What qualities of self that the straight, gay or transgender individual born at precisely the same time in the same place actually do share will be far more astounding than how they identify in regard to gender or sexuality. They can have all the same cosmic ingredients but embody a different recipe.

Also, in regard to transgender individuals: We find it more apt to discuss them in terms of gender, not in terms of sexuality. Just as we maintain that men and women (who identify as such) are different archetypes, one from another, so too are transgender people of a particular sign; but we’ve yet been able to express that in book form. [Put a pin] in that because doing so is part of our plan.

Musically, what can we expect from the new show?
Music has always been the icing for us. That said, we have gone further with it. Matt Ray has been our musical director now for the last five years an he’s the best in the business. We choose songs that tell a story and fit the theme of the show without hitting people over the head with them. We have individually found our own voices and have performed, more, separately in recent years—Stella Starsky’s solo show “Birth of the American Baroness” will be at Joe’s Pub on July 23 — and choosing songs to do together is always easy and fun. You might hear anything from X (the band) to Blossom Dearie in this show. And Patrick Johnson will be joining us along with special guest Phoebe Legere.

“Starring: A Midsummer’s Evening of Entertaining Enlightenment” hits Joe’s Pub at New York’s Public Theater on June 21. Head here for more details.

Bob Newhart on that “Seventies” Show — “What a Wonderful Time It Was”

2015-06-10-1433896867-5324260-Unknown11.jpeg

In the 1970s, Bob Newhart found himself literally in the middle of a revolution. He did not look the type. In his “button-down” appearance and deadpan delivery and demeanor, he resembled what he was before he embarked on his standup comedy career; an accountant. But “The Bob Newhart Show,” which debuted in 1972 and would run for six seasons, was in the vanguard of a new era in which television got real.

That’s the title of the first episode in CNN’s new eight-part-documentary series, “The Seventies,” which premieres Thur. June 11 at 9 p.m. ET. “Television Gets Real” is a clip-rich episode featuring new interviews with Newhart, Tom Hanks (who served as “The Seventies'” co-executive producer with Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog), Valerie Harper, John Amos, Norman Lear, Robert Klein and critics Tom Shales and David Bianculli.

In its second year on the air, “The Bob Newhart Show” was an integral part of arguably television’s Best. Programming. Block. Ever; CBS’ Saturday night lineup of “All in the Family,” “M*A*S*H,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” and “The Carol Burnett Show.”

“The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Bob Newhart Show” cleansed the palate from the envelope-pushing “All in the Family” and “M*A*S*H.” Neither show pointedly delved into the social and political issues of the day, which is one of the reasons both seem to have aged better than other more topical counterparts.

“We were different,” Newhart said in a phone interview. “We certainly weren’t ‘All in the Family.’ Mary and I and Carol Burnett were more traditionally funny. If the whole night had been shows taking on issues, I don’t think it would have worked. Our shows were a necessary balance.”

Newhart was no stranger to television. He was a mainstay of variety and talk shows such as “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “The Tonight Show” (he guest-hosted almost 90 times). Following the breakout success of his first comedy album, “The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart” in 1960, he was tapped to host an eponymous variety show that lasted one season, but did win an Emmy Award and the Peabody.

One and done suited Newhart fine. “I probably never should have done it,” he laughed. “I wasn’t seasoned enough. I did a monologue every week, but at the time we did about 39 shows and I felt I couldn’t maintain the quality I had achieved on the record album. That had been like a dam that suddenly burst and all this material came out. And they put me in sketches, which I wasn’t very good it. So I made a point of watching good people work to see what you had to do to be good. Plus, I wanted to get back to the standup world. I felt much safer there.”

He did some series work, an “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” episode; an episode of the Buck Henry series “Captain Nice.” And then MTM Enterprises, the producers of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” came calling.

By this point, the times may have been a’changin’, but prime time television was still most associated with escapism and rural-based comedies such as “The Beverly Hillbillies,” “Green Acres,” and “Petticoat Junction,” all on CBS. Executive Robert Wood executed a so-called “Rural Purge” that opened the door for Bob, Mary, Archie Bunker and Hawkeye.

Newhart was all in. “The fact that it was MTM suggested it would be different,” Newhart said. “Also, I had been on the road for 12 years and the road is not that romantic. It’s a lot of hotel rooms and travel and missing luggage. As far as a home life is concerned, you’re gone. When I was offered a sitcom, it was like, ‘You mean I can have a normal life?’

“The Bob Newhart Show” was set in Chicago, Newhart’s hometown. “Mary had taken Minneapolis and Andy Griffith had North Carolina,” he joked. “I know Chicago. I understand Chicago.” Newhart portrayed psychologist Bob Hartley, husband to Emily (Suzanne Pleshette). At Newhart’s insistence, there would be no kids.

“I didn’t want to be that TV dad,” he said. “I didn’t want to be that father who is not very bright, but the family loves him and in the final scene, the family is hugging him but they’re looking at the camera, like, ‘What are we going to do about him?'”

Making his character a psychologist was a masterstroke. It dovetailed with his standup persona as a listener and reactor in his classic phone routines. “(When it was suggested), I said that psychiatrists really deal with more severely-disturbed people. Personally, my own strange comedy preferences would have enjoyed getting humor from that, but I didn’t think it was viable (for television).”

“The Bob Newhart Show” did not want to set the world on fire and it succeeded brilliantly. As with “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” it was a character-based comedy that boasted a peerless ensemble and smart, pitch-perfect writing. “That’s a formula I stumbled on,” he joked. “Get great writing and a great cast and take all the credit yourself.”

And yet, Newhart thought the show, which was getting Emmy nominations and “Super Bowl numbers” in the ratings, thought that it was living in the shadow of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” (“And for good reason,” he laughed). In the show’s fifth season, he approached Robert Wood about moving the show. “I felt we were doing good stuff that wasn’t getting as recognized,” he said. “Bob Wood said to leave it alone; that it worked where it was. It wasn’t until syndication and we didn’t follow Mary that the show was really recognized as being good on its own.”

It was Newhart’s decision to end the show after six seasons. “We might have had another year left in it,” he said, “but I had seen shows that had stayed on too long and it damaged the brand.”

Today, at 85, the brand is still in demand. He won his first acting Emmy in 2013 for his role as Professor Proton on “The Big Bang Theory,” While his character was killed off, he said, there has been talk he could appear as a Yoda-like figment of Sheldon’s imagination to help him in times of trouble.

He plays about 20 dates a year at which fans of a certain age are compelled to tell him what “The Bob Newhart Show” means to them. “That’s one of the great things about being on television, and I run into it more and more,” he reflected. “You’re part of people’s lives. A man will come up and say that he and his dad watched the show together on Saturday night and they have this look in their eye, like, ‘What a wonderful time it was.'”

Which makes the notion of retiring seem ludicrous. “As long as I am able to,” he said of performing. “It’s a new experience every time. And why stop making people laugh? I can’t understand that–‘I’m tired of making people laugh; I don’t want to hear it anymore.'”

And that made him laugh.

Beautiful Satellite Photos Show Our Fragile World From Above

Since the dawn of space travel, astronauts have tried to put into words the profound experience of viewing the globe as a tiny blue dot in a vast universe — dubbed the Overview Effect.

“When we look down at the Earth from space we see this amazing, indescribably beautiful planet — it looks like a living, breathing organism,” NASA astronaut Ron Garan said in the short film Overview. “But it also, at the same time, looks extremely fragile.”

Artist Benjamin Grant was inspired by descriptions of the Overview Effect to try and bring this vantage point to the rest of us non-astronauts. He created the photography project Daily Overview, which posts a satellite image each day that shows how human activity has impacted our planet, for better or worse.

“What I’m really trying to get across here is that we’ve entered an important time in human history where our home has been significantly altered,” Grant told Wired magazine. “When people see the images, they want to know more.”

See below for a selection of the Daily Overview’s images, and visit the project’s website and Instagram page for more.

NBC Told Marta Kauffman That ‘No One’s Going To Watch A Show About People In Their 20s’

Showrunner Marta Kauffman had to deal with quite a few obstacles in creating “Friends” (including, but not limited to, misogyny). One of the comments she received from NBC early on nearly nixed the now iconic setup for the cast.

“We were told by the network, ‘No one’s going to watch a show about people in their 20s,'” she said. “[They said], ‘You have to have an older person.'”

Of course, the show had nearly 25 million viewers in its first season. Though you, dear Internet, need no reminder of how beloved “Friends” was and always will be.

That concern from higher-ups was one of the reasons Kauffman almost had to bring in “Pat the Cop,” aka, as moderator Ben Blacker put it, “America’s favorite lost character.”

As the lore would have it, Pat was suggested by one executive as an older figure who would provide the characters with relationship advice.

Kauffman was vehemently against bringing on Pat or a similar figure — one of the other ideas was a “Coffee Joe” — and insisted that she could make audiences care about such a young set of characters without a more mature presence.

“We kept saying, ‘If the stories are universal enough, you don’t need it.'” She eventually met executives’ requests by bringing in Rachel Green’s parents. (Later, Monica’s and Ross’ parents were also a big presence.)

“It felt more natural,” Kauffman said. “That’s how we decided to deal with the note. And this is what I always tell writers: you’ve gotta deal with the note somehow.

R.I.P. Pat the Cop. May you live on forever in “Friends” trivia posts.

Podcast Reviews: The Late Show Podcast and Mike and Tom Eat Snacks

2015-06-05-1433543507-5526733-late_show.jpegDavid Letterman has said his last goodbyes and his show’s set in the Ed Sullivan Theatre has been carted off, consigned to the showbiz Dumpster. Next up is Stephen Colbert, who is busy running test shows, whipping his writers into a frenzy to generate material, and trying to nail down the new character that he’ll become to replace the OLD Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report.

Fortunately for his fans that have been jonesing for his return, Colbert has turned to podcasting to fill the spare moments in his busy days getting ready for the September 8th launch of the new version of The Late Show. And the debut episode of The Late Show Podcast, entitled “In The Bad Room with Stephen” is a yack-packed 20 minutes that doesn’t disappoint.

Recorded in “the bad room” — a square, windowless chamber in the bowels of the show’s production office, Colbert is joined by Tom Purcell, his executive producer, and Opus Moreschi, the head writer and supervising producer for the new show. Their conversation rambles around a lot of subjects having to do with the process of gearing up for the show.

Colbert’s improv chops are in full view, as he throws off great, bone-dry lines and quasi-jokes as this initial show unwinds. One topic checked off is the width of the new audience seats in the studio — will they be 21 inches or 24 inches wide? Equated by Colbert as being for “the European ass or the American ass” and, as one might expect, his studio’s seats are going to be spec’d for the American ass.

The Late Show Podcast may well be become a viral phenomenon of its own before the three months runs out and CBS takes the warps off of the new The Late Show Starring with Stephen Colbert television show.

2015-06-05-1433543552-7606083-MATES.jpegThe popular (and only) snack-rating show, Mike and Tom Eat Snacks, may also be the most sporadically appearing podcast (besides my own) on the web. But hosts Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh are back for two consecutive weeks now, so maybe there’s a trend emerging.

Or maybe it’s just because Cavanagh’s character, the Reverse Flash, was killed off at the end of the first season of the CW’s The Flash series and neither of the gentlemen are overly busy at the moment.

In any case, fans of the show (or “maties”, as they’re referred to by the hosts) get at least a couple of nice hits in a row. This week — spoiler alert — the boys’ snack pick is Quaker Oats White Cheddar Rice Cakes.

As always, the snack is the least important element of this show. It’s the banter between Black and Cavanagh that so much listening fun. This episode offers up what can best be termed an angry history lesson about the Greeks by Cavanagh, who seems ill equipped to actually enlighten us about the topic.

This follows a rant about “unnecessary Smart cars” and wristwatches, both of which are contributing to the downfall of mankind. There’s also a cool song provided during the break, ostensibly from a fan, about the show itself.

I don’t want to give away much more but suffice it to say that if you think they’re going to laud the humble rice cake (complete with white cheddar flavoring), it doesn’t end up faring so well.

Podcasts I’m also listening to this week: Drive-Time Podcast: If The Brandy Bunch Kids Found A Porno Tape and Chillpak Hollywood Hour #420: Favorite Funny Ladies of Stage and Screen

14 Badass Girl Athletes Show Off Their Game Faces

The 2015 Women’s World Cup begins on June 6, and to commemorate the occasion, the clothing brand Wildfang is showcasing some badass young female soccer players.

The company’s CEO Emma McIlroy teamed up with photographer Andrea Corradini to create “#GameFace,” a series of fierce photos of 14 athletes ages 5 to 14. “We are beyond excited about the Women’s World Cup. It’s one of the most amazing moments in sports and women get to take center stage,” McIlroy told The Huffington Post, adding, “We wanted to look forward to the next generation of female footballers and, as you can see, the future of the sport is in good hands.”

The creators reached out to local soccer coaches in Portland, Oregon and invited their young female players to show off their “game faces,” which they define on the Wildfang website as “their most authentic moment, right before they stepped out onto the pitch.”

gameface
Tess, 11: “Cheetahs are my favorite animal — they’re almost as fast as I am.”

Unsure if anyone would show up to the photo shoot, McIlroy and Corradini were pleasantly surprised when over a dozen bold, young athletes stopped by — most coming right before or immediately after practice. With “zero styling,” each girl proudly displayed her purest game face.

“They showed up with such innocent and fierce pride,” Corradini told The Huffington Post. “They were confident, yet giggly. Independent, yet bonded with their teammates. They had no reservations about just being themselves and letting me photograph them in their most natural and authentic way.”

“We wanted to show young females as they truly are — raw, powerful, beautiful,” McIlroy added, noting that she hoped the photo series would provide a refreshing alternative to the images of “young women in pink and wearing princess dresses” that seem so pervasive in today’s society.

The Wildfang CEO also said she hopes other women can “see a little of themselves” in the hardworking female athletes depicted in #GameFace. “We hope they remind them to be a little bolder and tougher and ultimately be really proud of being who they are,” she continued. “Our hope is these images leave you feeling inspired to go kick ass in your day.”

In the first promo for CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” the host introduces us to his beard, but then decides it’s time to get rid of it. Colbert tries on a handful of characters with different facial hair, like “the un-Hitler” ‘stache, the half Wolverine and lastly, the fresh-faced, hairless Colbert.

Watch Colbert eat a hot dog with a fork and knife and give his beard a musical goodbye. Follow the show’s new Twitter account and Colbr app for more updates. “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” debuts on Sept. 8.

Bottom line is, I’m the kind of guy who’s happy to go to the opera, but I should like to be allowed to wear steel-toed boots with my evening suit. I like to read Harper’s with a chaser of Varmint Hunter Magazine. Maybe that’s why I enjoy a good show under canvas. Here we sit, brain-deep in arts and culture, but we’re also just people hanging out in a tent, some of us wearing boots, a few of us wearing Birkenstocks, but best of all we’re breathing free fresh air filled with music.” From Scandihoovian Spanglish to snickering chickens, New York Times bestselling author and humorist Michael Perry navigates a wide range of topics in this collection of brief essays drawn from his weekly appearances on the nationally syndicated Tent Show Radio program.

The 5 Stages Of Grief For The TV Show You Just Finished Binge-Watching

In an ideal world, we wouldn’t use TV to suppress our emotions. But it’s not an ideal world, so let’s do what we need to do to get through the day!

Binge-watching can be very helpful during a life crisis situation when you need to not feel your feelings and invest in a fake person’s drama instead. This is all well and good (or actually, not good but we’re doing it anyway) until you hit the last episode of the show, and your world away from your real life is suddenly no longer.

You have to leave the West Wing. Or Stars Hollow. Or Lockhart-Gardner, or Capeside, or Pawnee. And go back to your own surroundings, with the credit card debt that’s piling up and the texts you didn’t respond to because actually locking down a date for the drinks you’re supposed to have with your casual friend from college seemed so overwhelming that you just closed your eyes and sat on your phone as though that would make the row of emojis she sent self-destruct.

Maybe your looming unaddressed problems haven’t yet fully come back into consciousness. All you know for sure is when the episode cut to credits, your stomach drops like the one time you rode Superman after your friends peer-pressured you on a sixth-grade trip to Six Flags and you regretted it as soon as the coaster started its upward climb. (Trauma from middle school may or may not be a top thing we’re repressing with television.)

This gut-dropping feeling will usually be very uncomfortable and precipitate a period of grieving for the show you just watched. Yes, you’re missing the series itself: after upwards of 15 hours a week of a show over an extended period of time, the characters really do start to feel like your friends (or FRENEMIES Paris Geller I’m looking at you) and the communities really do feel like your home (still dreaming of living in Capeside — the creek by Dawson’s house truly is picturesque.)

But besides the actual show, you’re probably also missing the safety of immersing yourself in a reality that’s not your own — which can make the withdrawal all the more painful. Fiction is powerful, you guys, and so is the human ability to repress!

Your emotional stages will probably look something like this:

1. Denial
willgardnerdenial
There’s really no denying the fact that you’ve watched a series finale. But there are plenty of ways to deny that your time with the show is really over. If you’ve just spent months binge-watching a show that the rest of the world’s already been caught up on, for example, you still have a lot of show-related media to consume … right? “I can read all the recaps!” you might think. “Let me find those those think pieces I bookmarked when I was worried about spoilers.”

Then you will do this. Anxious feelings will begin to creep closer to the surface. Then you will discover DVD extras ripped to YouTube. You will watch all of those. Then you will find fan videos recommended by YouTube. You will watch all of those. And as the last montage of Josh and Donna scenes set to a Coldplay song ends, you will worry for a second that you’ve really reached the end. Then you will read some fan-fic.

When your frantic googling of the show’s title with various permutations of the word “scene” (“the good wife bar scene,” “the good wife elevator scene,” “the good wife car scene”) finally brings up all previously clicked links, you’ll start to feel dread approach the center of your chest. But before it really settles in, your body’s defense mechanisms will turn it into…

2. Anger
joshdonnaanger
With no new input from your TV show coming in, you’re left at this point to consider all the ways the series ultimately wronged you. Why is that the way it went down with Luke/Lorelai, Will/Alicia, Pacey/Joey, Leslie/Ben or Jim/Pam? Why will I never be able to see what it looks like for Josh and Donna to be in a functioning relationship as adults who actually respect each other? I invested all that time and you’re not even going to bring back Zosia Mamet’s character for one single scene in the last season of “Mad Men”? I acknowledge it wouldn’t have really made sense but she was an interesting companion for Peggy.

Eventually, your brain will realize this anger is all just because you’re facing the reality of no new episodes. Then the fury will transition into disbelief at yourself.

3. Bargaining
paceyjoey2
Why did I watch so many episodes so fast? I could have made this show last for three more months. I legit skipped my friend’s boyfriend’s birthday party to watch six episodes two Saturday nights ago. If I hadn’t done that, I would have gone to a birthday party that it was really kind of a faux pas for me to miss in the first place and I would also still have six more episodes to watch. Why did I regularly stay up two hours past my ideal bedtime because I had to know what was going to happen with Pacey and Joey even though I walked around tired for literally a month?

Why am I worthless.

4. Depression
roryjess
Remember how TV was distracting you from your real-life problems? This is a cool stage where all of those come bubbling up to the surface and demanding you take actionable steps toward fixing them if you ever want to stop crying on the subway. You may stumble around with dead eyes for a couple weeks and make bargains with the snooze button each morning. You might lie there and wonder what’s going on with Rory’s journalist life, or if she ever gets back with Jess.

Eventually, you’ll hit a point where you have to make some changes: find a new job, move to an apartment with cheaper rent, break up with the “not a boyfriend” sucking all the energy out of your soul. Hopefully this will give you a nice life reset, allowing you to move into new situations that are fine for a few months — before throwing new crisis curveballs your way.

This is when the delayed depression wave will hit. You thought you’d finally moved forward, but now you need your comfort show more than over. Things are looking very, very bleak.

5. Acceptance
brookelucas
Then you’ll find out “One Tree Hill” is on Netflix. You’ll go to Season 1, Episode 1 and press play.

See Your Favorite Supermodels in Their First Late Show With David Letterman Appearances

Entertainment stars bid farewell to David Letterman on his final show last night—and so did fashion stars, like Christy Turlington Burns, who posted this gem on Instagram:


My 2nd appearance on The Late Show at age 24 talking about @calvinklein #ThanksDave

A photo posted by Christy Turlington Burns (@cturlington) on

The legendary funnyman was known for interviewing many models early on in their careers. Among those who have passed through the hallowed halls of the Ed Sullivan Theatre: Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer. These clips from the early ’80s and ’90s prove that in addition to being drop dead gorgeous, these supermodels are whip-smart, offering tart retorts to Letterman’s friendly jabs.

Turlington hit the show right after shooting an underwear commercial for Calvin Klein. The then-24-year-old told Letterman that she’d like to go back to school and become a writer someday when she retires from modeling. She went back to school indeed, but Turlington is still in hot demand today in fashion.
Naomi Campbell had a laugh with Letterman in 1995 when he noted that no one helped the supermodel up after a royal tumble on the runway in mile-high platform shoes.
A shy Cindy Crawford hit Letterman right after she famously signed on with Revlon. She told the host she went to college to become a chemical engineer, to which he responded, “Chemical engineers tend to be good looking?”
A 22-year-old Claudia Schiffer was full of zingers. When Letterman asked if Prince Albert of Monaco had proposed marriage, she played coy and teased that she had heard gossip that Letterman had an affair with Princess Diana.

Mad Men Understood Human Behavior Better Than Any Show on TV

Mad Men closed with its hero, adman Don Draper (Jon Hamm), sitting lotus-style on a hilltop in 1970, experiencing bliss, or something like it. Don had proclaimed ten years earlier that love was a lie invented by guys like him to sell nylons and that we’re all born alone and die alone, and now here he was in California, shorn of his job, his home, his marriage, his apartment, his car, and even his suit, meditating on a hilltop overlooking the ocean.

A Goodbye After 20 Years of Directing Late Show With David Letterman

In the early evening of May 20 the words “used to be” will be grafted to the end of my name. Around 5:30, I will ask CBS Technical Director Tim Kennedy to “please fade to black.” Later I will remove the few remaining personal items from my sunny office with the four windows and set out to civilian life. When my feet touch 53rd street I will take my place among “ex” ball players, “former” Congressmen and “used to be” ship captains. I will be referred to as “the former director” of Late Show with David Letterman. Along with the name change, comes the surrender of an all-access pass to New York City.

Consider the sound of six hands clapping. In March of 2012, the cast of the Broadway show Once was booked on Late Show. On the Friday before the appearance, I walked eight blocks south to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater with a Late Show producer and my assistant. We sat in the darkened house as Cristin Milioti, Steve Kazee and the entire cast treated us to a very private performance of “Falling Slowly.” We were invited onstage where these big-time performers warmly introduced themselves and asked if “we would like to see it again?” “Ah, thank you. We’d love to see it again.”

Show business is filled with effusive strivers who realize their dream and can’t stop telling you about it. Sorry, but yes, there was a younger version of me from the north shore of Staten Island desperate for a one-way ferry ride. Manhattan scared me — it was loud, uncomfortable and uncaring, and, for reasons thousands of smarter people have tried to explain, absolutely magnetic. I had no choice. I needed to step off on the New York side and stay there.

One arctic January night, I rode the ferry again but this time I “owned” it. Late Show needed a new opening montage and I was given the resources and creative freedom to light up a boat named “The American Legion”. After crossing the harbor with the ferry’s captain, I grabbed a taxi to the West 30th street heliport where a pilot and camera crew harnessed me to the floor of a helicopter that was missing its doors. We did multiple passes across the bow of the ferry that was following a route and speed I requested. Later we buzzed the icons. I got a close look at the rivets dotting the roof of the Chrysler building and dangled my feet over the spiky crown of the Statue of Liberty. “Big deal” you say, “directors get to do that stuff all the time.” True, but on what scale and how often? I was in show business every day for 20 years or 1040 Sundays if Billy Crystal is counting. I had a blast. If things didn’t go well on Tuesday (they often didn’t), I had the rest of the week to get it right (I often didn’t.)

When my time at Late Show ends I will have directed over 3700 broadcasts, three openings and dozens of single camera shorts. I was treated to a private tour of the Empire State Building. I rode in blimps, police cars and the back seat of a taxi with Buzz Aldrin, who listened politely as I explained how to hold a pen in zero G. I had free run of Yankee Stadium and was part of a group that convinced George Steinbrenner to berate our Stage Manager, Biff Henderson. Mr. Steinbrenner turned out to be a great guy but the people around him seemed very nervous.

I put in hundreds of miles wandering the city streets with writers and camera crews in search of “found comedy”. On one of the many days when the funny refused to reveal itself, a call was put in to City Hall. Forty five minutes later, we were standing on the porch of Gracie Mansion as Rudy Giuliani lectured us about the waters of the Long Island Sound, the Harlem River and Upper New York Bay converging off his front yard to form the currents of Hell Gate. He reminded me of a know-it-all uncle.

If Joaquin Phoenix can romance an operating system, can I love a building? In 1992 I was invited to abandon my comfortable union gig in the art deco halls of NBC and travel a few blocks west to a smelly, broken down theater that saw its glory days in the 1960s. There was no guarantee of long-term employment, but there was the opportunity to help refurbish of one of the world’s most famous stages. Money blew down Broadway as the corporate might of CBS dragged a neglected ocean liner out of mothballs and made it seaworthy again. It was intoxicating. A dazzling broadcast facility was dropped into a swirl of fresh plaster, deep pile carpeting and velour seats. Everything was new; everything was possible.

I roamed the grand old building unchallenged, no one told me to leave (actually there was one time in 2003, long story). Instead stagehands and security people acknowledged me with snarky, absurd salutations that can only be traded among people who’ve shared changes of seasons and cycles of life. I’ve crawled through every accessible inch of The Ed Sullivan Theater. I’ve examined the pumping system that tames the stream running beneath the building and I’ve spied the plump rats who shared the stage with Letterman. I’ve climbed the sketchy iron ladder to the roof and stepped out a restaurant window onto the iconic marquee where Paul McCartney marked his return with a summertime street concert. I’ve pondered my good fortune in front of the René Bouché pencil drawing of Ed that hangs in the inner lobby and I’ve seen the looks of reverence from the many people I’ve taken through the place.

In October of 2002 Warren Zevon showed up for rehearsal; he was dying from mesothelioma. This was his last Late Show appearance and final public performance. He would be dead in less than a year.

Warren was a Late Show regular and covered for Paul Shaffer during the rare times Paul was unavailable. He was one of those guys you never saw coming. He didn’t enter a room — he appeared. On this day a rolling silence announced Warren’s arrival. He took in our frightened, sad faces for a few perfectly timed beats and said, “I think it’s the flu.” Later, Warren and Letterman had a compelling and surprisingly amusing conversation during which Warren shared that he may have “made a tactical error in not going to a physician for 20 years.” With the time he had left, Warren told us he intended to “enjoy every sandwich.” He performed three songs, focusing every witness to a deep look at the abyss.

Each day, Late Show started with a blank page that demanded to be filled. There were plenty of smart ideas, but we often resorted to spectacle. We broke windows, blew up pumpkins and spilled thousands of marbles from seven floors up. We hosted presidential candidates, presidents and former presidents. (There’s that “former” word again.) We re-enacted the Civil War and marched Marines under our marquee and through the aisles of the theater. We watched Philippe Petit take a wire walk 14 stories above an airbag that the city demanded, but he assured me would do nothing to save his life.

And then there are the folks, the humans who kept the assembly line moving. Late Show is populated by smart, stylish people with wicked senses of humor and impossibly fast minds. They gorge on popular culture and carry generous supplies of intuition and insight. Somehow they soldier on through jealousy, rage, dysfunction, cancelled guests, evolving technology, relentless scrutiny, tardy rock stars, fierce competition, 4 am calls, failed comedy ideas and a very demanding boss. They are clever, resilient and, at their core, among the most decent people you could ever hope to meet.

And then there’s Letterman — someone who relentlessly drove himself and the rest of us to the outer envelope of effort and clear thinking. In a random close encounter you’re likely to be charmed — what a great guy, so well-informed and so interested in what I have to say.

I grew up around funny people. Sarcasm and irony was my native language, finesse was an alien concept. Humming just beneath the surface of banter and insults was a bond allowing us to endure life’s cruelties with silliness. Funny people are strong. They counter fear and the indignities of living by surfacing the ironic, the ridiculous and the unexplainable. If tragedy is never taken seriously, then nothing can be tragic, fear is eliminated. To be in the presence of funny people is effortless and exhilarating, to be around people trying to be funny requires you to pay attention — it’s work.

.

When Dave was still at NBC hosting his 12:30 show, there were lavish Christmas parties. He’d buy out the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink and staff and crew would eat, drink and skate together. It was magical. Imagine sliding around on that famous ice minus the crowds, while envious tourists studied us from the plaza above.

As the evening wore on, small support clusters gathered to strategize about the best moment to approach Dave. We all wanted a little face time to register gratitude and maybe say something clever. People agonized over when to make the move and what to say. It was like lining up to visit Santa Claus, except Santa was a moving target, easily irritated and there would be no sitting on his lap.

It didn’t feel right to bother him while he was skating; you weren’t going to interrupt him while he was eating and there was never an easy way to join a conversation he was having with someone else. I was new to this world and couldn’t reconcile the degree of angst hovering over the room. Smart people were struggling to measure the conditions of saying “thank you” to their boss at the company Christmas party. It seemed way too difficult but, like everyone else, I was thrilled to be included and desperately wanted to be invited to the next party and beyond.

As I silently raged against my diffidence and fear of celebrities, I was steadily reminded by more experienced partygoers that “you have to go up there.” Time was running short. When I spied a gap around his table, I jumped. It was like stepping off the wing of a shrieking airplane. Beyond the pressure of coming up with something smart to say was the added burden of being evaluated by a gaggle of eavesdroppers who would overhear my remarks and report to the rest of the party. There would be judgment.

Before I was frightened off by the intense, narrow eyes that screamed “Oh God, here’s another one,” I stuck out my arm and said “Well Dave, it’s time for the annual hand shake.” I was sure that lampooning the absurdity of it all was something he’d appreciate. Turns out I was very wrong. Professional funny people don’t like wise guys. My stab at neighborhood humor was met with soul-searing silence. “Thanks for everything,” I stammered as he reflexively gripped my hand. “No Jerry, thank you,” came the kind-of-loud reply. I slithered away reduced. I spent two agonizing hours trying to get it right and he dropped me with four words and a scowl. I wanted to stick my head in a bucket.

Spread over 25 years my Letterman encounters, occasionally direct sometimes by proxy, were dominated by similar miscues, garbled intentions and remorse. I never seemed to say the right thing, but the stakes got higher — I was the director, perfectly positioned to screw things up and I often did. Despite an earnest desire to please, I never left work thinking I got it right.

Among Dave’s many gifts is the uncanny ability to turn the simplest task into something unwieldy. Watch him dial a phone or attempt a tweet. He’s also someone who can stare down the barrel of a single camera and distill the most complex human frailties with sideways insights that are hysterical and ultimately reassuring. The maddening part is the impossibility of predicting which version you’re going to get.

Long before Paris Hilton, the obnoxious Housewives or the family Kardashian was Dave, antagonizing Bryant Gumbel with a bull horn or taunting General Electric’s upper management with a gift basket. Dave pioneered reality television. If he was happy, you knew it and there was no escaping the times he was pissed. Search the night he announced the birth of his son or the time someone accused him of being a “non-voting Republican.”

Brilliant writers showered him with scripts, concepts and set ups. Most pitches were rejected and the rare ones to make it through were drastically altered. Even the best ideas were a threat to his effort to spill his thoughts out in real time. The memorable nights were when he was on a rant or a roll and the vitriol or joy flowed fresh from his uniquely wired brain. While he filleted himself in pursuit of perfection, David Letterman harbored a deep disdain for anything suggesting rehearsal. The observations, the comedy, the biting conclusions had to be conjured in the moment. This was not a teleprompter guy, if it was being read, it wasn’t a conversation, and if it wasn’t a conversation you’re not a broadcaster.

Dave is painfully self-aware. He lives in a state of perpetual examination and is incredulous that others don’t make the same effort. If they did, the world wouldn’t be populated by so many fools. He is easily the fastest knife in any fight and lights, microphones, cameras and direction only interfered. He was impossible to please, and if you stumbled into doing something right, he was convinced it would lessen your next effort. Was it simply some noble, Midwestern work ethic? I may never know.

Dave possessed a fierce drive to honor his opportunity. He threw everything he had at the show and left nothing on the table. Defying an earlier generation of generic NBC executives, David Letterman did become the uncontested heir to Johnny Carson. He walks off with his dream fully realized. He also gave me and many others a shot at their own professional dreams. The entertainment business is deep with people who passed through Dave’s world and have gone on to considerable success.

Now it’s time to hand the keys to a new owner. One day you’re a big shot with fat budgets and vast resources and the next day you’re not. Like the high school we leave behind or the vacated summer rental, someone kind of like you will occupy the space that was once yours and create memories of their own.

When Warren Zevon was leaving the theater that early autumn evening the impossible silence returned. The stage was dim and the theater’s ghost light was in place. As Warren gingerly lowered himself into the backseat of a town car, Stagehand Kenny Sheehan attempted a goodbye — “We’ll see you around, Warren.” A weary grin came to Warren’s face as he reached for the door. “Yea, I’ll see you somewhere.”

9 Gorgeous Things to See From Dior’s Cruise 2016 Show

Guests got to spend time before the show playing pétanque, a French lawn game like bocce.

Aasif Mandvi Details How He Found Out Trevor Noah Would Be New ‘Daily Show’ Host

Longtime “Daily Show” correspondent Aasif Mandvi stopped by “The HuffPost Show” Friday night to talk about his new HBO series “The Brink,” his new web series “Halal in the Family,” and of course, all the changes at “The Daily Show.”

With Jon Stewart signing off in August, and Trevor Noah taking over the host’s desk soon after, Comedy Central’s flagship show will surely look different in the year to come. And as Mandvi put it, “daddy’s leaving, everyone’s kinda freaking out.”

As many people speculated that Mandvi would succeed Stewart as host, Roy Sekoff asked Mandvi how the show delivered the news that Noah had been picked.

“I found out the same way that everyone else on the show found out.” He went on, “You know I have a show, I’m doing ‘The Brink’ and I’m very excited about it, and so a) not even available to do it. I’m an actor at the end of the day and I love doing that. And I wish Trevor all the best.”

Taylor Swift Dances The Night Away At Rumored Beau Calvin Harris’ Show

Taylor Swift showed love for her rumored boyfriend Calvin Harris in the best way she knows how — bouts of goofy dancing, obviously. The “Style” singer and her celebrity BFFs, the Haim sisters, hit up 102.7 KIIS FM’s Wango Tango concert in Carson, California on Saturday to watch Harris perform. While Swift didn’t take the stage with the DJ, she was a spectacle in her own right when she started busting some signature dance moves during his set:

Though the pair has yet to verbally address their alleged romance, photos of Swift and Harris holding hands at a Haim concert and getting cozy at a Kenny Chesney concert in April seem to be doing all the talking for them. Plus, he met her cats, so we’re pretty sure that means they’re official.

NBC’s Fall Schedule Lacks Comedy, But Has A Neil Patrick Harris Variety Show

Brace yourself for a whole lot of drama on NBC this fall.

The network announced its fall 2015-2016 lineup Sunday. The new slate includes variety show “Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris,” “Heroes” revival “Heroes Reborn,” crime thriller “Blindspot,” Wesley Snipes’ thriller “The Player,” couples comedy “People Are Talking” and medical drama “Heartbreaker.”

The most surprising feature of the schedule is its drastic lack of comedies. Besides “Undateable,” which was renewed for a third season of all-live episodes, NBC’s only other half-hour comedy is newcomer “People Are Talking.” Both shows will air back-to-back on Friday night, meaning that NBC will have only one hour of comedy programming per week this fall. That’s the lowest number of comedies the network has had since the fall of 1978, according to Vulture, revealing that comedies clearly aren’t a priority for the peacock network.

NBC’s fall schedule is rounded out with renewed shows “The Blacklist,” “Grimm,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Chicago Fire,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Mysteries of Laura,” “Undateable,” “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Hollywood Game Night.”

Check out trailers for four of NBC’s new shows below:

10 Must-See Pictures From Louis Vuitton’s Resort Show in Palm Springs

The desert outside of Los Angeles got a whole lot chicer last night when Louis Vuitton descended on the legendary Bob Hope estate in Palm Springs to show its resort 2016 collection. The evening was rife with major fashion moments that happened on the runway, plus celebrity spottings and a carnival-themed after-party.

Tough met soft in a powerful way thanks to cut-at-the-waist leather jackets styled with flowing maxiskirts.

The style world’s collective obsession with sneakers doesn’t appear to be going anywhere—which, awesome! Another thing about this look? The print is crafted all of sequins.

The folksy feel that permeated the location popped up on the runway too, in ground-sweeping, high-neck gowns that felt like a high-fashion Little House on the Prairie moment.

It’s worth putting money on the fact that this beauty will be coming to a red carpet sometime soon. A figure-hugging silhouette and a raised croc print begging to be touched are too good not to be shown off.

Jon Stewart Tells Dana Perino That Fox’s ‘The Five’ & ‘The Daily Show’ Would Make A ‘Sh*t Taco’

“The Daily Show” is not exactly known as friendly turf for Fox News hosts. But on Wednesday night, “The Five” co-host Dana Perino ventured into what many at her channel might regard as enemy territory.

When Jon Stewart explained that his team was “obsessed” with “The Five,” Perino suggested their programs join forces.

“It’s like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups — peanut butter and chocolate,” Perino said. “Maybe we could all get together here and have a mashup.”

“I think of it more as a shit taco,” Stewart replied. “I’m not saying who’s who. I’m just saying I don’t know that it’s necessarily two great tastes that go great together.”

As he mocked some of her co-hosts, Perino gamely played along. And when Stewart asked about the “dumb guy” on the “The Five,” Perino quickly asked, “Could you be more specific?”

Stewart was referring to Eric Bolling, who Perino noted had a dog named Freedom “after the Freedom Towers, ok, so watch the jokes.”

That elicited an eye roll from Stewart.

“My dog’s named Holocaust,” Stewart shot back. “I’m just saying, you want to have a dog tragedy-off, well, I think I’ve got that covered.”

This Is The ‘Daily Show’ Interview Jon Stewart Regrets Most

Jon Stewart spent 16 years behind the desk of “The Daily Show,” but there’s only one interview he really regrets.

In a discussion with The Guardian, the host said he wishes he questioned former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld harder about his role in the Bush administration’s post-9/11 conflicts. Rumsfeld visited “The Daily Show” in 2011 to discuss his memoir Known and Unknown.

I should have pushed, but he’s very adept at deflecting,” Stewart told The Guardian. “That interview with Rumsfeld went shitty, but it’s still just an interview. He’s the one who has to live with the repercussions of what he really did, so there’s nothing that could happen on my show that carries that same level of regret.”

The host went on to say the reason behind his choice to leave “The Daily Show,” noting that it had nothing to do with the show not working any longer. “It was more, ‘Yup, it’s working. But I’m not getting the same satisfaction.'”

“Daily Show” correspondent Trevor Noah will take over hosting the show later this year when Stewart steps down. Back in March, Stewart joked that he was so thrilled for Noah that he might even consider returning as a correspondent.

John Varvatos to Show at N.Y.: Men’s

NEW YORK — After seven years of showing his men’s collection in Milan, John Varvatos is coming back home.
The designer has revealed that he will show his spring 2016 collection in July at the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s, the new stand-alone showcase for American men’s fashion created by the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Varvatos will close the event with a runway show on July 16. The designer’s last New York fashion show was in spring 2008.
“From the time I started my brand in 2000, the timing between fashion week and the men’s wear calendar was never truly aligned,” Varvatos said. “After eight years of showing in New York, I moved my show to Milan. We’ve shown there for the past seven years and it’s been a wonderful experience and a real boost for our international growth.”
But the idea of supporting the new men’s fashion week kept nagging at him, and a lightbulb finally went off in his head when he opened a flagship in his hometown of Detroit a few weeks ago. “We’re the only retailer in downtown Detroit — literally, we’re the only ones there,” he said. “But like we did on the Bowery [when

Built For Show: Four Body-changing Workouts For Building Muscle, Losing Fat, Andlooking Good Eno Ugh To Hook Up


Every guy is looking for an edge, some way to get single women his age to notice him more than they do now. Unfortunately, most guys have absolutely no idea what kind of body automatically flips a girl''s attraction switch. Nate Green does. Built for Show is the first fitness book to address young men on the prowl. It’s not just written for them; it’s written by one of them. Green, who’s just twenty- three years old, is already a veteran fitness professional who’s been quoted in Men’s Health and Maximum Fitness magazines. Green offers four twelve- week workout programs, each with a seasonal theme. The fall and winter workouts add muscle size and strength that’ll show even under layers of clothing. The spring and summer workouts burn fat and chisel the showpiece muscles—creating a lean, cut, beach-ready physique. But Built for Show is more than just a workout book. It also provides: · Realistic nutrition advice to feed the muscles and starve the fat without breaking the bank or spending hours in the kitchen · Tips on dressing right, looking the part, improving your social status, and settling into your new lifestyle · Quick ways to assess posture, with useful exercises to fix flaws and improve self- presentation, no matter the situation. The detailed programs include over fifty exercises, illustrated with over one hundred original photos. Neither a weight-loss guide nor a body- building manual, Built for Show instead reveals to guys exactly what they need to build the body they – and women – want.Read Nate Green''s posts on the Penguin Blog.

High Heels For Men Show Just How Much Gender Expression Has Changed

“Never before have a few inches mattered so much.” The tagline for an upcoming exhibit at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto says everything about guys in heels.

Today, of course, high-heeled shoes are synonymous with femininity. Men who want to add a bit of height have to do so with inserts on the DL, and any non-cowboys wandering around with heels visibly higher than normal might get a few judgy looks. But for about 130 years in the 17th and 18th centuries, Western men wore heeled shoes as an expression of power.

bata 72

Italian, Ferradini, 1972-1975. Worn by Elton John. Celebrities strutted on stage in outrageous outfits and high glittering heels such as this pair, but more conservative men also paired higher heeled shoes with their suits.

It makes sense if you consider the value placed on height. Tall people, particularly men, are associated with confidence and prestige — we actually tend to pay them higher salaries. So one of the questions Elizabeth Semmelhack, curator of the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, poses through the exhibit is not why men wore heels at one point, but why they ever stopped.

“We’re so nervous about the idea of men in heels today,” Semmelhack told The Huffington Post. “Hopefully, what this exhibition will do is highlight for people that what’s really curious about the history of men in heels is our current attitude towards it.”

Semmelhack theorizes that heeled shoes were borrowed from Asia, where they were used for horseback riding, in the early 1600s. Persia had been gaining political influence around that time, and exoticism in dress was a symbol of high status. It wasn’t long before women began wearing heels, too. Semmelhack explained it was (somewhat unsurprisingly) trendy for women to borrow from mens’ closets in the 1600s, and there they found high-heeled shoes. Never before in the history of mankind did everyone’s butts look so fantastic.

bata 1

Persian, 17th century.

The heels themselves became gendered, with slender heels for women and blocky ones for men. Then around the middle of the 18th century, men started to abandon them. But there have been exceptions. John Lennon wore boots with heels, followed by plenty of glam rockers. “Elevator shoes” (with height-boosting insoles) provided a discreet option. And somehow the cowboy boot — which is definitely a high heeled shoe for guys — has stuck around as a symbol of rugged masculinity. As we reconsider notions of gender and its role in society, the heel is a prime example of how arbitrary definitions of gender can be.

Feel free to imagine Ron Swanson in any of the shoes below. If you find yourself in Toronto, the exhibition, titled “Standing Tall: The Curious History of Men in Heels,” runs from May 8, 2015, until May 2016.

English, c. 1690-1710. This sturdy boot from the turn of the 18th century features a high stacked leather heel.

bata 2

English, c. 1690-1715. This pair of men’s mules features high flared heels in keeping with turn of the 18th century fashion. The red leather covering the high heels was meant to bring attention to them and also a conveyed a sense of continental sophistication as red heels were famously worn in the court of French King XIV.

bata 52

American, Justin Boots, 20th century. The packer boot, like the more iconic pull-on cowboy boot, originated on the frontier and was worn for horseback riding. Evolving from 19th century lace-up boots, packers allowed wearers to customize the fit of the boot. The addition of the low-slung heel enabled the boot to stay stable in the stirrup.

bata 32

American, Tony Lama, late 20th century. The cowboy emerged in the West after the Civil War pushing cattle to railheads in the 1860s to 1880s.

Canadian, designed and made by Master John, 1973. The Toronto shoemaker Master John made these men’s platform boots complete with a five and a half inch high heels, appliquéd stars and veritable landscape in leather.

Bill Cosby Met With Protests At Denver Show

Protesters descended on a Denver theater hosting a pair of Bill Cosby comedy performances on Saturday night, chanting “Turn back Cosby,” “Rape is not a joke,” in response to the numerous accusations of sexual assault by the embattled comedian.

Approximately 100 protesters chanted and brandished signs outside Buell Theater, which was hosting two performances by Cosby on Saturday night, the Associated Press reported. “Don’t drink the water,” some chanted, referencing the claims that Cosby drugged his alleged victims’ drinks. A brass band joined people holding signs critical of Cosby. Attendees of the performances were waved down with metal detectors by security guards. Before the 8 p.m. MT showing, police officers took positions near protesters outside the theater. No arrests were reported.

Despite the hectic setting, hundreds of ticket-holders turned out for the performances. Cosby was met with a standing ovation and he thanked the audience, Reuters reported.

Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred, who has been representing some of the women accusing Cosby, held a press conference before the shows with a Denver woman who said that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1986, KUSA reported. Beth Ferrier, who was in her 20s at the time of the alleged incident, claimed Cosby drugged her coffee when he was visiting Denver, causing her to lose consciousness. She said she woke up “practically naked” in the back of her car. Ferrier had accused Cosby of assault before, in 2005 alleging that they had an affair in 1984, the Associated Press reported. Allred also led demonstration to the theater before the show.

The 77-year-old entertainer had performed the previous night in Pueblo to little protest and before a packed audience.

Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women over a span of several decades. For years, allegations against Cosby went with little notice. But over the past year, more and more women have come forward accusing the entertainer of sexual misconduct.

The accusations against Cosby escalated in the past week, as model Chloe Goins filed criminal charges against the comedian, alleging he drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. Goins would be the first woman accusing Cosby of sexual assault whose case may fall within the statute of limitations, according to her attorney. Prior attempts to charge Cosby have been rejected, and Cosby has maintained his innocence.

Numerous Cosby performances have been cancelled or postponed as the controversy around him has grown.

Several of the shows that have not been cancelled have been interrupted by protests inside the venue and out, audience members at a Jan. 9 show in Canada shouting, “We believe the women!” Prior to his Colorado performances, Cosby issued a statement saying that the North American comedy tour would continue despite the backlash against him.

In addition to cancelled performances, institutions and media networks have cut ties with Cosby. On Friday, NBC announced that it would not work with him ever again.

The Ana Marx Show

The Ana Marx Show


The Ana Marx Show” asks the question, how do you re-invent yourself? How do you cast off whatever you were to become a different person?Ana Marx was the “It” girl- a beautifully exotic blonde, an articulate, witty action sports diva. In addition to being a contracted hostess with BlooBull Sports, she hosted events like the X Games, appeared on the E! Channel and was in negotation with MTV for her own show. All of that comes to a screeching, fiery halt when she is involved in a horrific car crash. It claims the life of her fiancée, and her best friend. Ana survives, but just barely. Ana wakes from a coma. It is two years later. She doesn’t remember what happened. Her hands and half of her face is bandaged. The nurses call it a miracle. Ana quickly realizes her life has been turned upside down. Her mother, Marie Marx has become a talk show host, known far and wide as “the Martha Stewart of the South”. Her delinquent little sister has become one of the hottest DJs in Miami. As Ana struggles to put her life back together, she inherits her uncle’s car repo business. After an incident with an old man and a loaded gun goes viral, she is thrust back into the spotlight whether she likes it or not. She turns the attention to her advantage by turning the business into a reality TV show, specializing in repossessing the vehicles of celebrities. For the season finale of the “Ana Marx Show”, Ana teams up with two mercenaries to repossess the airplane of a notorious Mexican drug lord.

A ‘Minority Report’ TV Show Is Getting A Pilot On Fox

If you’re a fan of the Philip K. Dick short story, the Steven Spielberg film adaptation or of sci-fi in general, we have good news: “Minority Report” is coming to the small screen.

A TV adaptation of Spielberg’s 2002 film has been one of the most buzzed about projects for months, and now Fox has given it a pilot order. The drama will be a follow-up to the film, which starred Tom Cruise as a cop who stops crime before it happens using psychic Precogs. Set 10 years after Precrime is over in Washington, D.C., it will follow a female detective and a Precog who has trouble leading a “normal” life while still suffering from visions of the future.

The pilot, which has yet to be cast, was written by Max Borenstein (“Godzilla”), who will also executive produce along with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. Kevin Falls (“The West Wing”) will serve as showrunner.

Why It’s Time To Pull The Plug On The Worst Awards Show In Hollywood

The Golden Raspberry Awards, now approaching their 35th year of doling out dubious honors to Hollywood’s worst, just leaked their shortlist on the Internet in anticipation of next week’s list of nominees. At a glance, it’s traditional Razzie fare. They’ve identified an actress over 40—Cameron Diaz—to kick while she’s already on her way out the door of an industry that already doesn’t have a place for aging women. They’ve opted not to target the genuinely worst movies of the year, but rather the ones most likely to draw the most Internet attention to their increasingly bitter roast of the entertainment industry. The awards continue to be surrounded by a crass and juvenile air, but what can you expect from a production named after flatulence?

Network Likely Happy to Have Complaints Over New Show

If we learned anything from last month’s fervor over The Interview, it’s that in some part of the world, a head of state is convinced that Seth Rogen is so influential, his movies need to be stopped at all costs. But we also learned that, if audiences are led to believe that a film is so controversial that it can’t even be released, they’ll be chomping at the bit to see it. Hype sells. It got a poorly reviewed movie a ton of attention. And now it’s doing the same for a new reality show.

Like the four men it features, TLC’s My Husband’s Not Gay has managed to offend people even though it has yet to come out. Set to debut this weekend, the program has already received protests from everyone from Christians to advocacy groups like the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)… and, in the process, a whole lot of publicity. The show’s ability to upset such a diverse cross-section of America might suggest that it’s doing something very wrong. In a world where TV ratings mean everything for cable networks, however, it is doing something very right.

Media outlets have already devoted a great deal of time and attention to the story this week. Whether it’s the 80,000-plus people who have signed a Change.org online petition to block the show’s debut, whether it’s the statement issued by an inexplicably wounded GLAAD , whether it’s openly gay ABC News personality Robin Roberts reacting to the program on air, people are talking. And when you’re promoting a new show, any publicity is good publicity.

The fuss being made over My Husband’s Not Gay hardly has the network shaking in its boots, as the uproar has done nothing but generate buzz over a show that otherwise would probably have fallen silently into the heap that is TLC’s unspectacular, over-the-top reality programming. The best thing that opponents of this show could have done was keep quiet and not give it any attention at all. Instead, people will probably tune in to see what the hype was about.

Critics have already called the program everything from “harmful” and “dangerous” to “downright irresponsible,” but it’s hard to believe that anyone would care enough to even bother complaining about it. The 69-second trailer that TLC has posted on its web site shows a seemingly delusional cast, whether it’s the self-questioning men (“I’m interested in men, I’m just not interested in men,” one of them offers) or the women they’ve married (“I wouldn’t change anything about him,” says one about her husband). Even worse, one of the men featured is a bachelor, which begs the question of why the show’s title contains a word that doesn’t apply to a quarter of its cast. Sorry, but if your sons or daughters are being influenced by logic like this, perhaps their choice in TV programs isn’t the biggest problem you’re dealing with.

Plus, keep in mind that this program airs on a network that over the past several years has transitioned from respectable programming to offerings like 90 Day Fiancé, America’s Worst Tattoos and Extreme Couponing. It airs multiple shows on wedding dresses, multiple shows on baking, multiple shows on gypsies. TLC provides viewers with a peek into the lives of polygamists, little people, the morbidly obese, and those living with compulsive behavior. And nearly 100,000 of us are worried that someone is actually going to take sociological cues from one of this network’s programs?

Interestingly, those who oppose the show being aired are advocating the cancellation of a program they have not even seen, and quite frankly are wasting their efforts when other more pressing matters are on the table. Change.org is full of petitions dealing with legitimate human-rights concerns, yet many have received less support than one that has managed to actually bring more attention to the show, thus creating a demand and ironically reducing the likelihood of it being shelved.

If you want to learn about the identity struggles of those who question their sexual orientation, and the role that religion plays in efforts to “deprogram” them, do some research. Read a book. Watch a documentary. And let campy TLC programs do what they do best: entertain. Because when it comes to actually educating yourself on real-life issues, the only thing worse than forming an opinion after watching a reality show, of all things, is forming an opinion before watching one.
