Michelangelo Foundation to Present Cultural Exhibition in Venice

LONDON — The Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship, a Switzerland-based organization co-founded by Johann Rupert and committed to promoting artisanal practices, is planning a major cultural exhibition that will run from September 14-30 in Venice during Biennale of Architecture. An announcement is expected today.
Titled “Homo Faber,” the show will be held at Venice’s Fondazione Giorgio Cini, an international cultural center on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore. It is meant to serve as a celebration of European craftsmanship and the value of the human touch.
“Homo Faber is an expression that was first coined during the Renaissance and it captures and celebrates the infinite creativity of human beings,” said Rupert, chairman of Compagnie Financière Richemont, parent of brands including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and IWC. “The exhibit will provide a panoramic view of European fine craftsmanship, but it will nevertheless have a singular undercurrent: What human beings can do better than machines.”
Spanning 43,200 square feet, the exhibition will stretch beyond the various gallery spaces at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, to the libraries, cloisters, swimming pool and other areas that aren’t usually open to the public.
Designers, curators and architects including Michele de Lucchi, Stefano Boeri, India Mahdavi, Judith Clark, Jean

First Lady Melania Trump to Present Inaugural Gown to Smithsonian

HISTORY LESSONS: Hervé Pierre will be on hand Friday morning when First Lady Melania Trump presents the inaugural gown he designed for her to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
“She asked me if I wanted to be her date, and I said, ‘Oh hell, yes,’” Pierre said with a laugh. “As a foreigner who became an American, to have your gown put in the Smithsonian Museum is a big huge honor. I got chills. I know how in the designer world, there are lots of big egos. I have always tried to manage my ego for many, many years. But in this case, there is nothing to be ashamed of — it’s a big ego thing. I’m really really proud of it.”
David Skorton, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, and John Gray, director of the National Museum of American History, will help welcome 200 guests at the private unveiling in Flag Hall of the vanilla silk crepe off-the-shoulder gown with a slit skirt and ruffled accent trim from neckline to hem. Pierre said, “When you are on Earth, it is important to leave a little mark. My name will be in the museum forever. I’m not a painter. That will

How Oprah Learned to Stop and Smell the Roses (Literally) at Her California Home: ‘This Garden Makes Me Present’

There are some old adages Oprah takes very seriously.

“I’ve done many interviews with people who had to lose what they had in order to value what they still have,” she tells Veranda in their September/October 30th Anniversary issue. “Sometimes I stand under the arbor, close my eyes, and allow myself to take in as much as I can: I hear birds splashing in the fountain and literally smell the roses. This garden makes me present.”

RELATED: It’s No Coincidence Oprah’s California Estate is Reminiscent of a Southern Plantation: ‘It’s the Promised Land!’

The TV mogul’s Santa Barbara home overlooking the Pacific Ocean is a world away from her Chicago base. And when she purchased the property in 2001, it’s 42 acres came with a steep learning curve.

“What did I know about a garden?” she says. “I would leave my apartment in the Water Tower in Chicago at 5:30 in the morning and come back at 8:30 at night, when it was dark.” When she found out the plot came with a designated area for a rose garden that was not yet designed, she says, “I thought, Oh boy, what am I going to do with that?”

WATCH THIS: Ellen DeGeneres Lists Her Stunning Santa Barbara Estate For $ 45 Million

 

As she would in any episode of her beloved show, she turned to the very best expert in the field: Dan Bifano, who’s designed gardens for Barbra Streisand and Tom Ford. Together they picked every bloom, structure and detail of the garden.

“I’m very hands-on,” she says. “I picked the gravel. I picked the grout between the stonework. I decided which way the roses would face. Love is in the details.”

Now, Oprah’s fully stepped into her gardening shoes. She joined a local club called Rose Buddies, and helped develop a new hybrid flower called Legends, in honor of her female African-American heroes.

Cruising Through Cuba’s Past and Present

This post originally appeared on ViewFind. 

If the U.S. and Cuba had to choose from a drop-down menu to describe their relationship, it’s no question which one it would be. That’s right: “It’s complicated.” And while the strained ties are gradually beginning to ease — with the last couple years even seeing the reopening of commercial flights and embassies between the two countries — the stigma of traveling from America to the “forbidden” island still lingers.

Not letting this deter her, budding documentary journalist Morgan Lieberman traveled to Cuba to photograph the island and form her own opinions instead. Through her images, she offers a fresh look at the vibrant and textured charm of the Caribbean country both proud of its past and confident in its future.

Holding a little more than a grudge, the relationship between Cuba and the US began to strain after Fidel Castro came into power in 1959. What ensued afterwards was decades of heated disagreements between the two countries, political grandstanding, and of course, the occasional international crisis.

 With Switzerland holding the role as mediator throughout the years, the two countries surprised the world in 2014 when they announced their governments would be restoring full diplomatic ties. Since then, the two countries have moved forward with thawing relations, but the long period of tension has left an impression.

“Everything I knew about Cuba was either very negative or very misconstrued to really old history books,” says Lieberman, describing what she remembers learning about the country in the American school system. “I think the overall consensus was that it’s a place stuck in the past, unable to escape the reigns of a Communist dictatorship,” she adds.

Traversing beyond the pages of her SparkNotes, Lieberman intentionally didn’t plan ahead for her trip: the last spring break hoorah of her college career. “I knew that having a camera would keep me focused on what I was seeing,” she says, “but I also knew that I didn’t want to go there with any expectations.”

With this openness, Lieberman felt very much at home in Cuba. Easing into the streets lined with colorful, eclectic cars — a look stemming from the results of the US trade embargo — she defines its aesthetics as “vintage but not outdated.”

Finding familiarity in the bold paint chipping off the outside of boxing gyms, she attributes her affection for the country to her own ingrained love of old things.

“One of my uncles has an antique shop in New York and my grandpa was an artist, so maybe it’s genetic,” she laughs while adding, “somehow everything in the past morphs into the present and you don’t realize it, but it affects you. Cuba felt that way for me.”

From securing taxi rides to lending out bicycles, Lieberman felt comfortable in a place where people genuinely seemed to want to help out. “Everything was arranged by word of mouth. It was all like, ‘Oh, let me call up my friend for that,’” she says. “There’s just a kindness that exists there that I really love and admire a lot.”

This warmness could be felt during the week as Lieberman covered the areas of Varadero, Viñales and Havana. “Each city and town offered very distinct characteristics from one another,” she says, “making the country so thrilling with infinite visual opportunities and experiences.”

Varadero, the ultimate getaway for many Cubans as well as millions of international tourists each year, boasted pristine waters and white sandy beaches. And Viñales provided a haven for both cigar and outdoor enthusiasts with its plethora of tobacco farms and stunning mountains and valleys.

For Havana, salty breezes and cigar smoke permeated the air. Friendly taxi drivers honked every time in passing, and freshly squeezed mojitoes flowed at the famous Hotel Nacional: the legendary establishment known for hosting iconic celebrities ranging from Nat King Cole to Frank Sinatra and John Wayne.

Despite these varying characteristics across the country, Lieberman noticed one consistent element intertwined into the fabric of Cuba as a whole: the way the light hit the streets, trees and buildings during golden hour. Even with hearing about it and looking at pictures before her trip, it felt like something she had recognized on her own.

“I’m still trying to figure it out, but it felt a bit like a painting,” she says. “All of the country felt like this, and I wish I would have read more Hemingway, because I know he loved Cuba, and I’d love to hear what he has to say.” But while the American novelist may have offered some insights, she needn’t look any further than the country’s very own Pedro Juan Gutiérrez who wrote, “Cuba may be the only place in the world where you can be yourself and more than yourself at the same time.”

While wrapping up her last spring break as a college student, Lieberman headed back to Columbia, Missouri, to finalize her degree in documentary journalism. As she takes on the future, she hopes to continue to channel the energy she felt in Cuba of being able to confidently ebb and flow with whatever life brings. “What I came across in that week of spontaneous adventures is that the Cuban people were not actively trying to be something else,” she says, “but rather embracing their sense of tradition and also, taking great pride in changes along the way.”

Corneliani Launches Digital Initiative to Present Fall Men’s Collection

MILAN – Classic Italian men’s wear brand Corneliani unveiled the “Corneliani To You” project during Men’s Fashion Week here, which launches the next phase of the company under a new owner,  Bahrain-based fund Investcorp,, and a new chief executive officer, Paolo Roviera.
“The basic idea was to create a formula to communicate the existing values of the brand without distorting the product, while in an unconventional and innovative way,” said Roviera during an interview at the firm’s stately, frescoed showroom. “We were mindful of everyone’s busy schedules.”
As a result, the company didn’t hold a presentation this season but invested in a communication idea, tapping four different directors to present their visions of the brand in one-and-a-half-minute videos. “You can do this when you are confident in your style,” said the affable Roviera, who was previously ceo at rival Pal Zileri, which is also owned by a Middle Eastern fund, Mayhoola for Investments. “I am happy with the results – four different yet complementary videos,” he said, emphasizing his belief in digital communication.
For example, “Like Suit Like Man,” by Vincent & Kristell shows a man on a business trip whose every change of suit projects him in a different dimension, from France

A Lecture on the Present Relations of Free Labor to Slave Labor, in Tropical and Semi-Tropical Countries (Classic Reprint)

A Lecture on the Present Relations of Free Labor to Slave Labor, in Tropical and Semi-Tropical Countries (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from A Lecture on the Present Relations of Free Labor to Slave Labor, in Tropical and Semi-Tropical Countries Gentlemen: It had been in contemplation, during your Summer Session at Columbus, to ask the privilege of addressing you on the subject of the Constitutional provision which should be made to secure Legislative aid for such of the colored people of Ohio as may wish to emigrate to Liberia. But your early adjournment prevented the execution of that design. After consultation with some of your number, it has been determined, that the Lecture, prepared for that purpose, be printed and circulated among the members of the Convention, in advance of their meeting in December. An apology would be due, on account of the extent of the investigations embraced in the Lecture, were it not that we live in a matter-of-fact age, when the reasons offered in support of every measure, proposed for public acceptance, must amount to demonstration. The present Lecture is designed as a sequel to the two heretofore delivered before the Legislature, on the subject of Colonization, and which were laid upon your desks at Columbus. It is believed that every unprejudiced mind must be convinced, after examining the subject of Colonization to Liberia, in all its bearings, that it offers to the colored people an inheritance almost infinitely more valuable than any other scheme that has been proposed for ameliorating their condition. It is also believed that the time has arrived when the question of the. emigration of the colored people from this country, or their permanent residence among us, must he settled. If the first measure be not adopted, then the public peace and safety demand that ample provision for their elevation, to equal social and political equality, under the last, be speedily made. But if it be the public will, that the African population of our country be secured in the peaceable possession of a free government of their own, then immediate action should.

The Gettysburg Address: Using Lincoln’s Words to Tell the Whole Story of America’s Civil War, 1776 to the Present


”Four score and seven years ago … ” They’re the famous opening words of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address delivered in 1863, and they point back to the founding year of the United States: 1776. To understand the issues involved in the Civil War, it’s necessary to go that far back in American history. Based on the founding fathers’ vision for America, how free were the states to leave the Union if they wanted to? Did the federal government have the power and right to stop them? What did Lincoln really think about the issues of slavery and race?Those are just some of the questions this graphic novel examines. Divided into sections corresponding to the phrases of the Gettysburg Address, this is an enlightening read that brings the reader face to face with the complex historical issues behind the Civil War. More than just a comic book, it goes surprisingly in-depth and shows the causes of the Civil War were not as simple as you may think.Product DetailsDimensions: 6” W x 9” HSoftcover graphic novel, 224 pages, by Jonathan HennesseyArt by Aaron McConnellISBN: 978-0-06-196976-8

New Nina Simone Documentary Recalls Past Struggles While Echoing Present

While watching “What Happened, Miss Simone?” — a new documentary about the legendary singer-songwriter Nina Simone — it’s almost impossible not to think about two attacks on black churches that happened 52 years apart.

The first attack, in Birmingham, Alabama, inspired Simone to join the burgeoning civil rights movement of the 1960s. The latter, in Charleston, South Carolina, happened just last week.

In the wake of the latest attack, the Netflix documentary may help shed light on how art like Simone’s can channel anger, fear and frustration about social ills like racism and oppression.

Houses of worship were crucial to Simone’s development as an artist and an activist. As a child in Tryon, North Carolina, Simone played the piano at her local church. During one of her performances, her parents were told to move to the back of the church hall; she said she wouldn’t play until her parents were allowed to move back to the front. But decades later, Simone would say she had “stopped believing in prayer” after racist acts kept being committed against those fighting for civil rights.

Simone’s transformation as an artist came in the wake of the bombing in Birmingham that killed four black girls. “That did it,” Simone says in the film, much of which is narrated in her own voice. While she had made a name for herself with renditions of tunes like “I Loves You, Porgy,” her career changed profoundly after she started to sing about what was happening around her.

“How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?” Simone asked.

Following the Birmingham bombing and the assassination of black civil rights activist Medgar Evers in Mississippi, Simone wrote the song “Mississippi Goddam.” In a recording of a concert she gave at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, Simone calls the song a “show tune, but the show hasn’t been written for it yet.” What was subversive about her performance was that she lulled the the majority-white audience at the concert hall into thinking the song would be jaunty and non-political. But her audience went silent as she told them: “You’re all gonna die and die like flies.” She meant every word of it, she told them.

“Lord have mercy on this land of mine / We all gonna get it in due time / I don’t belong here / I don’t belong there / I’ve even stopped believing in prayer,” she sang. “You keep on saying, ‘Go slow!’ / But that’s just the trouble / ‘Do it slow’ / Desegregation / ‘Do it slow’ / Mass participation / ‘Do it slow’ / Reunification / ‘Do it slow’ / Do things gradually / ‘Do it slow’ / But bring more tragedy / ‘Do it slow.'”

Fifty years ago, Simone performed “Mississippi Goddam” for the thousands of civil rights marchers who walked from Selma, Alabama, to the state capitol in Montgomery. That march was marked by violent state troopers blocking the participants’ progress at the Edmund Pettus bridge, illustrating one of Simone’s arguments in her song: Gradually trying to bring about equality only concedes to the demands of the oppressors.

And yet, as the film shows, there was a danger for Simone in being perceived as too controversial. She attributed a stall in her career to “Mississippi Goddam,” which was boycotted by a number of Southern states.

Despite the backlash to her more confrontational music, Simone still “thought we should get our rights by any means possible,” as she explains in the film. She was in favor of direct action and became affiliated with the black power movement, defiantly telling Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when she met him at the Selma march that she wasn’t non-violent.

Simone says she felt free on stage. But she also said that to her, freedom meant living without fear. (“I think every day’s gonna be my last,” she sang.) What’s devastating about the documentary in light of the Charleston shooting is its reminder that African Americans have yet to realize that freedom from fear, decades after Simone voiced a desire for it.

“We can’t afford any more losses,” Simone says in the film. “They’re killing us one by one.”

At the Sundance film festival in January, the film’s director, Liz Garbus, acknowledged the resonance of the documentary in comments referring to mass protests across the nation over police killings of unarmed African Americans.

“If we had voices like Nina Simone’s today, speaking the pain and the passion of the movement that’s been building, I think, on the streets in the past six months…” Garbus said, “I think we can all see the place of these songs today.”

“What Happened, Miss Simone?” will be available on Netflix Friday. Watch a trailer for the documentary here.

286 Hubs of Harmony: NYC Street Pianos Past, Present and Future

2015-06-04-1433453014-1027410-PianoMoving11.jpg

Izabel Lam‘s aquatic Sing for Hope Piano prepares for its journey from the studio to its summer home at Castle Clinton at the Southern tip of Manhattan (and yes, that is a giant starfish on top of it).

This evening, a fleet of moving trucks will pull up to NYC’s parks and public spaces, from the Bronx to Brooklyn and beyond, and roll out pianos — enormous grands, sturdy uprights, some decades old, some of fresher vintage, all painted with designs as diverse as our city. By sunrise tomorrow, 50 Sing for Hope Pianos will have been placed throughout the 5 boroughs, bringing to 286 the number of street pianos placed here since the project’s 2010 debut, and making New York City the host of more street pianos to date than any other city in the world.

And it all started 3,000 miles away with one piano that couldn’t make it up the stairs.

2015-06-04-1433452105-5603603-11312588_10153352433594595_4754982986665589557_o.jpg

Scene from the Sing for Hope Pianos art studio in midtown: Marc Evan focuses on the final details of his piano inspired by his son Luke, whose gaze will welcome piano players at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

In 2003, in Sheffield, England, a grad student named Doug Pearman found himself unable to get his beloved secondhand piano up the stairs to his new flat on Sharrow Vale Road. Doug’s cousin, Hugh Jones, a Cambridge-educated mathematician working as a cabinetmaker, suggested that they just leave the piano where it was. They tracked down a stool for it, stapled on a tarp for protection from the sudden South Yorkshire showers, and attached a sign inviting passersby to sit down and play, right there in the middle of the sidewalk.

The world’s first street piano was born.

The accidental debut of the Sheffield Street Piano was a hit, and the instrument quickly became a local, then national, celebrity. Like any celeb, it had a period of thrilling ascendance, a splashy website, the occasional tussle with authorities (in the form of the Sheffield Council and its pavement obstruction laws), and a few newsworthy scandals, including being stolen in the dark of night, only to be replaced later by a group of committed volunteers.

The Sheffield Street Piano survived for five years, and when it was finally removed due to weather damage, its model for urban harmony had gone viral. Sixty miles to the south in Birmingham, an enterprising artist launched his version of Street Pianos — 15 instruments emblazoned with “Play Me I’m Yours,” which then traveled to other cities as an “internationally touring artwork.” Off the coast of Southern China on Gulangyu Island, Street Pianos enlivened a biennial piano festival. In the United States, towns from Jacksonville to Orange County have produced their own Street Piano installations, each one bringing its own flavor to the mix: surfing themes in Southern California’s “OC Can You Play,” an adventurer spirit in Denver’s “Keys to the City,” a Sarah Palin/George Bush impersonator duo heralding the Street Piano launch ceremony in central Florida (admittedly, I’m not sure what to make of that one).

Detail from the Sing for Hope Pianos art studio: a luminous mosaic in progress on the lid of Jessica Browne-White‘s grand piano, which will shine under DUMBO archway in Brooklyn.

This summer, for the fourth time, New York City will play home to a truly Big-Apple-flavored street piano installation. The Sing for Hope Pianos project is the world’s largest annual street piano installation in which:

  • each instrument is an individually credited artwork by a dedicated artist or artists’ group chosen through an open application process
  • all artists involved volunteer their time and talent because of a shared belief in “art for all”
  • the pianos are part of a year-round continuum of arts outreach to communities in need, with each piano donated post-street-residency to a school, hospital, or community organization to serve as a hub for ongoing creative arts programming in under-resourced areas.

As an “artists’ peace corps” powered by professional artists who volunteer their time, Sing for Hope is uniquely positioned to produce a piano project worthy of the city that never sleeps. Year-round, concurrent with our ongoing arts outreach programs, we collect abandoned pianos from donors and wholesalers. Our technicians rehab the instruments in our midtown art studio, and our team makes multiple visits to sites throughout the five boroughs, meeting with city agencies and park managers. We enlist volunteer “piano buddies” to cover the pianos with tarps in case of rain and report on missing keys and other occupational hazards, and we lay the groundwork to donate the pianos to our partner schools, healthcare facilities, and community organizations after their public tour of duty. Our deeply committed Founders’ Circle — The Arnhold Foundation in loving memory of Sissy Arnhold, The Anna-Maria & Stephen Kellen Foundation, and Ann Ziff — amplify the project through their ongoing support, our dedicated Board of Directors steps up with additional gifts, and hundreds of grassroots donors complete the funding picture with gifts ranging from $ 1 to $ 10,000. Our volunteering piano artists work alone, in groups, and in collaboration with our students from New York City public schools. One by one, the instruments are brought to vivid new life.

2015-06-04-1433454034-2381639-HavenAcademyWorking_A.jpeg
Our students from Haven Academy in The Bronx create colorful magic with their piano, reminding us of Picasso’s words: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

In final weeks before the pianos hit the streets, the Sing For Hope Piano Studio is abuzz with round-the-clock activity, the collective energy and inspiration heightened, like a modern-day atelier. Hodaya Louis makes refinements to intricate patterns on her piano with the help of neighboring artist Paul St. Savage, who introduces her to the tools that are bringing his piano’s cartoons to life. Nick Stavrides incorporates iconic spots of the NYC music scene into his piano, and José Aurelio Baez découpages his piano in flyers sourced from his daily Brooklyn-Manhattan commute. Jessica Browne-White makes adjustments to optimize the sunlight that will shine on her luminous mosaic piano, and Moksha Kumar‘s geometrically precise grid plays counterpoint to the lyrical curves of her grand. Yuki Sakaguchi brings a phoenix to life on her piano, symbolizing the many layers of rebirth in the project, while Drue Kataoka creates a piano that resonates at the nexus of art and neuroscience, referencing her other activist work and beckoning passersby with a beautiful show of hands. The Keith Haring Foundation creates a vibrant “Radiant Baby Baby Grand” with designs made famous by the late Haring, an iconic voice for urban harmony silenced far too soon, and a powerful reminder for the Sing for Hope team of our origins in artists responding to AIDS. And poignantly, two exquisite pianos happen to stand side by side toward the front of the studio, both commemorating beautiful, brief lives: Marc Evan‘s homage to his late son Luke, and The Lulu & Leo Fund‘s communally created instrument, curated by volunteer artist Patricia Espinosa, and symbolizing the resilience, generosity, creativity, and hope at the very heart of the Pianos project.

2015-06-04-1433453983-1629204-11009978_839000252852620_1299568865409957184_n.jpg

Patricia Espinosa soars in the studio with The Lulu & Leo Fund‘s communally created instrument, which will encourage its visitors in Central Park to “make a wish.”

These volunteer artists, and scores of others equally gifted, work alongside groups from Sing for Hope’s year-round programs. Our students from The Bronx’s Haven Academy festoon their instrument with their school colors. Our partners from United Cerebral Palsy create ornate designs in colors reminiscent of fine Wedgewood. Our Sing for Hope Youth Chorus members sing while painting their piano and expressing their excitement that it will be featured in Times Square (as they exclaim, “the center of the world!”).

Embarking on our fourth year of the Pianos project, we are not without our questions. As a grassroots, artist-led movement, will we be able to ensure future of this beloved, impactful program as part of our city’s great annual traditions? Can we find a sustainable solution to our need for artists’ studio space? Will our heroic “early believer” funders inspire new donors to join and help endow the project? The justifying numbers are there: over 2 million New Yorkers have played the SFH Pianos since their 2010 debut (thousands touching a piano for the first time in their lives), and the project has received over one billion media impressions, making it the most widely covered public art project in the country in the last decade. In terms of civic pride, touristic/economic impact, and simple, unquantifiable joy, the Pianos speak for themselves.

2015-06-04-1433454493-726070-11201111_10153303986324595_7110547703628546025_n.jpg

Community members from United Cerebral Palsy, with whom we work year-round in our Healing Arts program, create ornate designs in colors reminiscent of Wedgewood china. Their piano will grace the patio of the Conference House on Staten Island.

The infrastructure required to sustain the program is significant, but the return on investment — in terms of urban harmony, civic engagement, and ignited creativity — cannot be overstated. Admittedly, our dream of sustainability for the project is a big one. But as the piano by the high schoolers in our Sing for Hope Youth Chorus reminds us, in black-on-yellow lettering: “dream big, speak loud.” Communal creativity is a worthwhile investment, and the time to support is now.

When the Sing for Hope Pianos make their debut tomorrow, from Coney Island to Central Park and from the Bronx to Staten Island and the Far Rockaways, they will inspire melodies, conversations, and random acts of musical kindness — including, hopefully, yours. And we hope they will inspire imitators in cities around the world for years to come.

To quote Hugh Jones, who started it all on Sharrow Vale Road over a decade ago, “Perhaps one day, street pianos will be a familiar sight everywhere. Now wouldn’t that just rock your world?”

For example: Do thongs present a health risk? Can they spread infection or affect hygiene? HuffPost Live’s Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani got to the bottom of it on Friday during a conversation with Dr. Lauren Streicher, a gynecologist and author of Sex Rx.

Anatomy of a 16-Year Wedding Anniversary Present (or What Not to Give Your Wife)

Sugar Daddy (aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “I don’t want to talk about it — I’m sorry I made a mistake. I bought you a practical gift. I thought you would like it, I thought you would think it was cute I thought you would think it was warm. And comfortable like our relationship”

Me: “So basically what you are saying is that — after 16 years of marriage — you think the best gift to give me are two pillows and a sheet?”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “It’s not a sheet it’s a set of flannel sheets and they were expensive.”

Me: “Really — are you really trying to defend your flannel sheets?”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “No I knew it was bad.”

Me: “So why the hell did you get it for me — you know I am not all about needing a Harry Winston necklace — but getting two pillows and a sheet makes me think that I have lowered the bar so low that you think it is acceptable to get me a gift that is really more for the house and for you than for me. We both sleep in the bed so really this is a gift for you. Nothing abut this gift says : ‘I love you, I still think you are hot, I cherish you.’ To me this gift says, ‘You are as exciting to me as a broomstick. So… I think you should take your pillows and sheets and get your own bed and sleep someplace else.”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “Oh c’mon I looked at all the things and went past the jewelry store and I even looked for a doll for you.”

Me: “So — you couldn’t find ANYTHING except for sensible pillows and sheets to show me how much you love me???”

I am ashamed to have to write this post — but I’m doing it for all those wives who get HORRIBLE ANNIVERSARY PRESENTS to try and figure out what goes on inside the mind of the married man. So please enlighten me.

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “You said not to spend a lot of money — in fact you said not to buy you anything.”

Me: “YOU KNOW you should never listen to what I say.”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “I never learn.”

Me: “And of all the things you saw — your thought was — Oh I’ll pass on the candle and the jewelry and make a beeline for the home goods section?! Please explain yourself.”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “It was just a lack of imagination and romance.”

Me:” It makes me feel like you see me as a scullery maid. First of all the sheets you got — they are not even my STYLE.”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “I thought they were cute and warm.”

Me: “And how does this gift encapsulate 16 years of marriage — after 16 years you see me as someone who would love getting pillows and a sheet? what does this say about what you think of me and the years we have spent together? You see me at my finest when my eyes are closed ad my mouth is shut — asleep in bed?”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “It was dumb, what can I say. I just had no imagination, I didn’t see anything I liked, jewelry seemed superfluous, you have jewelry… I don’t know.”

Me: “And you didn’t think this would read as totally unromantic?”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch) : “I knew it was, I don’t know why I did it, I couldn’t think of anything.”

Me: “Why would a husband do this to his wife?”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “I did never learn that being practical when it comes to gifts is BAD. I should’ve gotten you something that would make you feel special — which is what I wanted to do with the pillows and sheets.”

Me: “How would pillows and sheets makes me feel special?”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “Because it was given from my heart — I wanted to give you something from my heart , I didn’t have any ideas what to get you.”

Me: “A pillow and sheets is from your heart — I don’t get it?”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “I though t it was something we needed and I thought you would like it even though it wasn’t romantic. I’m sorry I wish I could take it back. Now it’s too late.”

Me: To me this says — you have no idea who I am or what I like.”

Sugar Daddy ( aka the husband who is currently sleeping on the couch): “It just seemed like buying you an expensive gift would’ve been just to get you a gift — it still wouldn’t have meant anymore. It would have been a waste of money to buy you a necklace.”

Me: “That’s what anniversaries are for — to splurge and get something you wouldn’t get on an average shopping trip to the mall. YOU messed up buddy big time. To me this says — I am not of value — I am not worth the splurge… I am a sensible pillow and sheets kind of wife.”

For Your Viewing Pleasure, We Present Some Nude Piles As Art (NSFW)

Since the earliest days of artistic creation, the nude form has provided endless aesthetic inspiration to those working with camera, paint or pen. Back in the day, a scandalous representation like Francisco Goya’s “The Nude Maja” could keep art lovers hot and bothered for days. In the post-internet age, you’re going to need some more nudes.

bu

Enter: Evelyn Bencicova. The 21-year-old photographer, born in Bratislava and based in Berlin, takes photographs with the drama of Theodore Gericault’s “Raft of the Medusa” and the dark eroticism of Salvador Dali’s “Voluptuous Death,” if designed to get voted up many a time on Reddit.

We’re not quite sure what to call what we’re looking at here, so we’ll call it “the nude pile.” In fancy terms, pallid, undressed forms converge into contorted amalgamations expressing a combination of togetherness and isolation. In not so fancy terms, nude pile. Bratislava piles on nudes on nudes on nudes, in such ambiguous positions it’s hard to tell if they’re engaged in an orgy or a post-apocalyptic nap.

We’re somewhat hypnotized by Bencicova’s surreal human-scapes and their particular brand of spooky-sexy that’s so very hot right now. We’re not quite sure if “nude piles” have what it takes to be the next big art trend, but we can say with certainty we could imagine many other far worse kinds of piles. Let us know your thoughts on the NSFW visual feast in the comments.

Meet Your New BFF — The Present Moment

When we treat the present moment, as a stepping-stone to the next moment, we are living out of alignment with life. Life only happens in the present moment. In this video, Eckhart Tolle talks about becoming friendly with the present moment.

All too often, we make the present moment into an enemy, something to overcome or get through as quickly as possible. We seem to believe that the next moment will be better. In our minds, the next moment holds the promise of happiness and fulfillment, but we are chasing a phantom, which never quite materializes. When we live this way we create a negative internal state of resistance that leads to unhappiness. Why not make the present moment your BFF?
