Dancing Is Absolutely Safe

The Dorcas gazelle is an antelope species native to Northern Africa. Survival of the herd depends on a mixture of athleticism and adaptability—and yet within the group framework there is a feature not yet understood: In critical situations the herd makes hair-trigger collective decisions, as if communicating telepathically. How tenuous is that link? How is that little understood balance sustained? […]

Marc Maron

Nothing to Offer but Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat

Marc Maron is like a comedic David Frost. He’s become known for his WTF with Marc Maron podcast interviews, he gleans wisdom and life stories from famous figures in music, film, and comedy—and does it all so effortlessly. Maron rarely pushes, but instead makes a connection with his subjects—emotionally, mentally, momentarily—by offering up private information about himself. Though he has […]

Kehinde Wiley

in CONVERSATION with filmmaker TERENCE NANCE

On the eve of Wiley’s latest exhibit, The World Stage: Haiti, on view at Roberts & Tilton through October, the painter talks stick-to-it-ness, supporting his art habit, and bestowing value upon the creative act. Kehinde Wiley: And what further matters more is there’s the educational process of every artist of color in this country—and increasingly in the world—where there’s a […]

Fire and Brimstone, Death and Decay

PREMIERE: WOLVVES: "White on White"

‎And thence spewed “White on White,” the latest single from Brooklyn’s WOLVVES, and all manner of hell in hand baskets, ‎fire and brimstone, death and decay–and that criminal moment you realize that our species is not a power puppeteer, but rather a synaptic slave to any and all giving light–washed away what sidewalk sentiments remain from last night’s block party, […]

Tour Diary: Chelsea Wolfe

A year ago this month, my album Pain is Beauty was released. Since then, my bandmates and I have been touring pretty much nonstop, in different incarnations and situations. We’ve done co-headline tours with Russian Circles, minimal acoustic tours, and full band tours opening for Queens of the Stone Age. Our last stop was a headline tour of Europe, based […]

Money For Nothing

In 1931, one man saw the sudden end of all of civilization coming through economic collapse due to predatory lending, dangerous speculation, and greed. Montagu Norman was the Governor of the Bank of England, and England was the most powerful nation in the world at the time. He knew the stock market crash in the Americas, on Black Tuesday two […]

I Think We Need to Fly In an Expert

The lovesick kid from Love Actually, the one who plays Liam Neeson’s stepson who learns the drums to impress his classmate crush and who ultimately hops the turnstiles and eases through post-9/11 security at Heathrow to profess his love to said crush, is, of course, all grown up. This is Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and a lot has changed in 11 years. […]

Sports is War Without Death

Game Called by darkness—let the curtain fall.
No more remembered thunder sweeps the field.
No more the ancient echoes hear the call
To one who wore so well both sword and shield:
The Big Guy’s left us with the night to face
And there is no one who can take his place.
just ask Cal Ripken, Jr., John Stockton,
Billie Jean King, Nancy Lieberman,
Emmitt Smith, Ron Jaworski, Pete Rose,
Morten Andersen, and Tim Brown.

Nancy Lieberman: [The most difficult moment in my sports career was] playing for the L.A. Lakers in 1980 for Pat Riley in the Southern California Summer League. I was outmatched every day in practice and every game. Staying healthy—realizing your body takes a toll with the pounding, icing after practices and games, seeing the trainer, getting sleep and eating right […]
