Wolfenstein 2’s Talking is Better Than Its Robot-Dog Riding

Before I started playing Wolfenstein 2, I was told I would get to pilot a giant, mechanical, fire-breathing dog. As you might expect, that’s pretty much the main part I was looking forward to as I shot Nazis and charged through crumbling walls. But what I didn’t expect is that the sequel’s cutscenes would blow me away more than melting my enemies.

Picking up the top-notch storytelling and character development of the first game, the cutscenes I saw from Wolfenstein 2 were even more impressive. The way each scene was filmed and cut together made them feel more like clips from some new Netflix show than mere exposition in a videogame.

S.C. Mom Charged With Murder After Baby’s Remains Allegedly Decomposed in Apartment For More Than a Year

A 41-year-old South Carolina woman has been charged with murder for allegedly living for more than a year in a Fountain Inn apartment with the decomposing remains of her newborn baby, PEOPLE confirms.

Jamie Melissa Wilson, of Gray Court, was arrested on Friday and charged with homicide by child neglect, according to a warrant obtained by PEOPLE.

Investigators believe Wilson failed to properly care for the child and is therefore responsible for the baby’s death.

Because the baby was found in an advanced state of decomposition, medical examiners have yet to determine the baby’s sex or how the infant died, but allege the child was nearly 9 months old at death.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Detectives allege the baby’s body was found wrapped in a hooded sweatshirt that had been placed inside a trash bag and then a tote bag. The warrant alleges the remains were found in a container that was inside yet another container.

Police discovered the remains in Wilson’s bedroom as they attempted to serve her with an eviction notice.

• PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: 35 Real Cases That Inspired the Show Law & Order is on sale now.

According to the warrant, Wilson allegedly told investigators the baby was born a year ago.

She allegedly told police the baby was born but stopped breathing, the warrant says. Rather than take the child to the hospital, police allege she hid the child’s body.

Wilson does not have legal counsel who could comment on her behalf. She has yet to appear in court to answer to the charges she faces.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Has More Freedom Than Ever

A few minutes into my demo of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, I realized I was experiencing something I’d never felt before in an Uncharted game: total freedom. Even in dozens of hours exploring with Nathan Drake, Uncharted has never given me the sense that I can do whatever I want in any order, but in The Lost Legacy, that changes.

The section of the game I played – chapter four in The Lost Legacy’s overall story – dropped me into an expansive area of Southern India’s Western Ghats. As new protagonist Chloe Frazer, the world was my oyster, with the franchise’s first completely non-linear experience and the largest single area ever in an Uncharted game.

While my ultimate goal to advance the story was clear (finding a few statues that match corresponding symbols on an artifact), the game never forced my hand. From exploring ruins to searching for treasure to just shooting down groups of enemies, there was never any pressure to do anything but wander. While Nadine Ross – Chloe’s reluctant partner on the journey – would occasionally give me a hint that could lead to an objective, I was able to discover everything from actual story moments to hidden treasures at my own pace.

Ashley Graham, Candice Huffine Reflect on Impacting More Than Just Sales With Lane Bryant Ads

NEW YORK — Being on the set of a national lingerie ad campaign with major models conjures a stereotype of thumping music, empty Champagne glasses and frazzled assistants scurrying to-and-fro, procuring their every demand.
But the vibe was far more girl power than fashion diva at Lane Bryant’s shoot for its fall lingerie campaign on Monday.
Reprising their roles in the latest ads were Ashley Graham of TED Talks, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and Candice Huffine, whose May cover of Elle and runway jaunt for Prabal Gurung have her on the radars of major casting directors. And while these women have been modeling for the plus-size retailer for well over a decade, it’s only been in the last few years that they’ve caught the attention of the overall fashion industry — not to mention the public, whose outcry for stylish clothes in a greater size range is finally being heard.
“I wanted to be a model so badly, it was my calling,” said 32-year-old Huffine, who has been modeling for 17 years, 10 of those signed with Lane Bryant. Even after all that time, she didn’t anticipate the fame that would sweep over her and her fellow plus-size models who appeared in the 2015 “I’m

Paris Men’s Sizzles — In More Ways Than One

PARIS — Call it the Macron effect. With Paris men’s fashion week in full swing since Wednesday, retailers and brands say there’s a positive global energy that is helping propel business, boosted by the recent election of President Emmanuel Macron — a man well-connected with the nation’s luxury conglomerates and also contributing to the goodwill toward France.
“I moved to Paris three months ago, and I have to say that, especially since the elections, there is a high level of confidence, trust and energy. I am hearing that from all over the world,” said Balmain’s new chief executive officer Massimo Piombini.
“It’s a global energy that is spreading. There is a global drive,” agreed Pascal Morand, executive president of the Fédération Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode.
That’s despite Paris being further rattled by an attack on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées on Monday, marking the fifth time in four months that security forces were targeted in the city. Morand said the federation and its members are working with state services and police to ensure safety during the men’s season and the women’s couture shows, which begin July 2.

Mario Testino Goes Larger Than Life in Berlin

MARIO MAKES IT BIG: Mario Testino’s “Undressed” is the Helmut Newton Foundation’s largest-scale show to date. In this exhibit of 50 published and private photographs of men and women often wearing nothing more than their tattoos, Testino blew up his images to completely fill the walls in three halls of Berlin’s graciously proportioned Museum of Photography.
Looming over 10 feet from the ceiling to the walls’ lower wood moldings, and spanning sometimes 23 feet in width, this site-specific installation conceived exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation offers a spectacular yet also intimate view. For as the photographer noted prior to the show’s opening June 2, the enormous size and full bleed from corner to corner means there are no distractions. The viewer is almost compelled to immerse his or herself in the images, turning from “a voyeur into a participant. We’re in a moment when people want to interact with what they see, and not just look. They want to be part of it, so who knows? Maybe people will now go home and take photos of each other like this.”
That means equal undressing rights for all, with full frontals, male and female, to enticing back views, moments of amorous play

Painful Chinese Foot-Binding Was More Than An Erotic Practice, Study Finds

Chinese foot-binding is perceived today as unusual, gruesome, an antiquated fetish, an erotic tradition. 

For decades in China, young girls’ bones were broken and their feet tightly bond in a painful process that would eventually make them appear more desirable to men, according to historians. Their deformed feet, known as lotus feet, were tucked into embroidered shoes and viewed as delicate and dainty. It was a way to show off their social status. It was, at the time, chic.

One study, however, suggests that there was another reason girls were subjected to the practice ― and it wasn’t all about beauty or sex.

Research published in the book Bound Feet, Young Hands suggests that some women’s feet had been bound at a very young age so they could be trained to sit still for hours and help create textiles and clothing for the family.

“What’s groundbreaking about our work is that [foot-binding was] not confined to the elite,” Laurel Bossen, the book’s co-author, told HuffPost. The study, Bossen added, dispels the view that the goal was only to try to please men.

To uncover this little-known history of foot-binding, Bossen and the book’s co-author, researcher Hill Gates, interviewed over 1,800 elderly women in remote villages across China and found that foot-binding was widespread among peasant populations, shattering the belief that foot-binding was a status symbol of the elite.

All the women surveyed were born when foot-binding was still an accepted tradition. It’s unclear when the practice began exactly, but Bossen believes foot-binding in China goes back as far as 1,000 years.

“As the last generation of these foot-bound women disappears, we fortunately managed to interview many of them,” Bossen told HuffPost. “There is no other body of data based on interviews with foot-bound women that is as comprehensive as this. It was really a last chance to do it.”

The type of foot-binding practiced in rural communities was a form of discipline, the book argues. Mothers bound young girls’ feet so they would stay still and work with their hands, creating yarn and spinning thread, among other things, which families could use or sell.

“Women who bound their daughters’ feet had their own interests in controlling the labor of young girls and young women,” she said. “We reject the view that women were exempted from work, treasuring their precious bound feet and not economically important. They developed hand skills and worked with their hands throughout their lives.”

These new findings, Bossen believes, prove that women in rural areas who had bound feet didn’t get the recognition they deserved.

“Chinese women were contributing more to society than they received credit for,” she said of the rural women with bound feet. “They were making very important contributions in the form of textiles [that have] been undervalued and mostly just forgotten.”

And while this new research suggests that this painful practice wasn’t solely for men’s desire, it doesn’t make the practice any less oppressive.

Bossen explained, “It robbed young girls and then women throughout their lives of their ability to do other things, to move around and play, to have more choices. Of course it’s oppressive.”

The practice of foot-binding began to be banned in the early 20th century, though some women, like those interviewed by Bossen, kept their feet bound their entire lives. Bossen believes the stories of the women she interviewed might have gotten lost in history as their generation passed away. 

Still, Bossen and Gates’ book doesn’t deny that “lotus feet” were created to make a woman appear more desirable. Accounts written by feet-bound women in 19th century China, published by the University of Virginia, show that women often believed the tighter the foot-binding, the better the husband they’d attract. 

The research does, however, show that these women were more than just sexualized objects. They worked hard to contribute to their families and to the larger society.

“We often underestimate how important handwork was in China’s pre-industrial economy,” she told HuffPost. “The intense pressure on women to work with their hands, to spin, weave, sew, and stitch cloth, bedding and textile products for their families and for sale has gone unrecognized.”

Their research, Bossen added, aims to look at the whole woman and not just her bound feet.

“Somehow, people have been so fascinated by the feet that they ignored the rest of the woman and what she did,” she said.

“It’s very rare to find people who notice the role of handwork in the lives of foot-bound women or who ask these elderly women what work they did when they were young girls.”

Contrary To Popular Belief, Nice Guys Have More Sex Than Bad Boys

Want to have more sex? Try a little altruism. 

Contrary to popular belief, most research shows that women and men are more attracted to nice people than selfish folks. The Psych2Go video above highlights just a few studies to that point.

In one study out of the University of Guelph and Nipissing University, researchers interviewed roughly 800 people, asking them about their sexual history and their propensity toward altruism, be it charity work, random acts of kindness or donating blood.

Even after controlling for age and personality, the do-gooders were found to have greater success at dating and sex than their selfish counterparts.

Watch the video above for more on the link between altruism and gettin’ some action.

The Pope Rapping Meme Is Back And Better Than Ever

There’s nothing like a dank (and vaguely sacrilegious) meme to get your week started on the right foot. 

The hashtag #PopeBars was resurrected this weekend after Pope Francis was photographed talking to reporters aboard a plane flying from Cairo to Rome.

The public seems to thoroughly enjoy how Francis holds a microphone, something that was first noticed in fall 2015, when the #PopeBars meme first began.

Francis’ manner of holding a mic appears strikingly similar to a rapper’s, making it look like the religious leader is, uh, dropping bars.

The subsequent memes looked like this:

This time around, Francis was photographed talking about the very serious topic of mediating the current dispute between North Korea and Washington.

But, yet again, the photograph is what caught Twitter’s attention. Let’s get papal:

Dang. We’d see the pope in concert FOR SURE.

These 4 Dogs Have Been Patiently Waiting for More Than a Year for Forever Homes — Adopt Them?

Every pet deserves a warm bed and an even warmer hug.

Unfortunately, there are countless pets in this world that are homeless and yearning to make a human’s life better. Shelter and rescues like Best Friends Animal Society, the largest no-kill animal organization in the country, help many of these cats, dogs and other critters find that forever home, providing them with the medical care, attention and diets they need until that happens.

This magical moment of “finding their human” occurs at different times for every pet. Some are only in the shelter for one day, but others are left to patiently wait for months, sometimes even years.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Pet Day we want to highlight four superb canines that have been living with Best Friends for more than one year, hoping to find their forever. Maybe their wait is almost over.

Duke

“Handsome Duke is looking for a kingdom to reign over. This noble shepherd/Chow Chow mix is well-mannered and super smart. Duke likes to spend his time running around, playing, hoping for ear scratches and napping in his very own fashion: upside down, feet straight up to the sky. Duke is great with most other dogs and such a sweetie. He’d be a fabulous companion for any big dog lover,” gushed his current caretakers. 

If you think this active gentleman is for you, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Nina

Best Friends says, “Pretty Nina is a fun, active gal and the perfect exercise pal. She loves long walks, hikes and play time in the yard. Nina adores people and can play nicely with most other large dogs, too. She was recently in a foster home and was described as: ‘An absolute star! Nina’s an energetic, affectionate 75-pound lap dog.’ This special girl is so ready to be your best friend.” 

To learn more about this large lap dog, contact Best Friends Animal Society – Los Angeles at (818) 643-3989. 

Tyler

Best Friends describes 2-year-old Tyler as a young, lovable retriever mix that is smart, playful and super active. And he’s a smarty-pants who already knows sit, down and give paw! He has been in an amazing foster home with a trainer who is teaching him extra manners and commands so he can be your ideal companion. Tyler loves learning new things and going for long walks in the park. Tyler is a typical busy-body teenager and is looking for someone who shares his zest for life and is happy to help him work on his training. He loves other dogs but can be a little too wacky and wild for some.

If Tyler sounds like a perfect fit for your home, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

Churchill

Churchill is a man of simple pleasures. This American bulldog mix just wants your love, some yummy treats and the occasional belly rub. Churchill takes a little extra time to warm up to new people, but with some extra TLC and patience (and treats!) he’ll be your bro, too. He’s got the most ridiculous and adorable underbite that makes him look like a character from Lord of the Rings. And he has the sweetest brown eyes. Churchill has also decided that he’s all the dog that anybody should really need and prefers to be the only dog in his home.

To become Churchill’s human, contact Best Friends Animal Society – New York (347) 762-3678.

The 37-year-old actress opened up about her income in a Thursday Instagram Story, revealing that she made more money last year doing sponsored ads on the social media site than through acting.

After someone said that they liked Philipps’ Instagram because she wasn’t always posting #spon like some other celebrities, the actress revealed that she “wasn’t above it” and had done sponsored content in the past — but only for brands she actually liked.

“I gotta be honest with you, I didn’t make a ton of money as an actor last year,” Philipps said. “I made more money doing that kind of stuff, like the partnerships with brands.”

It is common for celebrities to promote brands on the photo-sharing site. Stars like Khloé Kardashian, Lea Michele, Bella Hadid and more have gotten in on the action.

“I’m not above it, guys,” Philipps said in the clip. “I just only choose things that I genuinely like and, like, would want to partner with, like, for instance, my Michaels partnership, which, you know, is my favorite thing of all time. And I’m doing one next week, I think, that feels like me.”

Busy Philipps Describes Her ‘Freaking Creepy’ Uber Scare

The mother-of-two‘s Instagram account has several posts promoting the arts and crafts retail chain along with Campbell’s Soup and more.

However, she noted in the video that she likely wouldn’t promote a product that she deemed “random and weird” — “Unless it was, like, a billion dollars.”

“I’m gonna sell things,” she continued. “That’s my only point.”

Philipps currently plays Gale Liptrapp in HBO’s Vice Principals and last year made appearances on New Girl and Angie Tribeca.

Han Solo’s Name Is Han Solo, But There’s ‘More To’ It Than That

Maybe that’s why Chewie’s fur is so big: It’s full of secrets about Han Solo.

Last month, Disney CEO Bob Iger raised eyebrows in a University of Southern California lecture hall when he said an upcoming “Star Wars” movie focusing on a young Han Solo would reveal “how he got his name.” The suggestion that Harrison Ford’s beloved smuggler was perhaps not born “Han Solo,” but acquired it as a nickname through unknown circumstances, caused mass confusion.

Thankfully, another studio insider has stepped in to clarify the comment.

“I’m not sure that’s entirely what Bob meant,” Kathleen Kennedy, a producer on the much-anticipated “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” told MTV News on Monday. “There’s more to Han Solo’s name, but it’s not that it’s not his name. It’s obviously his name. It will always be his name.”

To recap: Han Solo is Han Solo. But he’s more than just Han Solo. Got it?

The yet-untitled “Star Wars” film will reveal the character’s past, following him from age 18 through 24 with Alden Ehrenreich (”Hail, Caesar!”) in the title role. All-stars Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge round out the cast

“There are a few significant things that happen in Han Solo’s life,” Iger explained last month, “like acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee that will happen in this film.”

But whatever the deal with his name truly is, we won’t find out until May 2018.

Restored War Documentary ‘The Memory Of Justice’ Is Timelier Than Ever

The 1976 documentary “The Memory of Justice” might as well have been made yesterday. Newly restored and premiering on HBO this month, Marcel Ophüls’ nearly five-hour film uses the Holocaust, Vietnam and other human tragedies to explore the notion of collective versus individual responsibility. The thesis: Any group in power is capable of war atrocities. 

The Huffington Post is exclusively premiering the trailer ahead of the movie’s April 24 debut. Inspired by Nuremberg prosecutor Telford Taylor’s book Nuremberg and Vietnam: An American Tragedy, “The Memory of Justice” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and earned a glowing New York Times review. “’The Memory of Justice’ is long but it rivets the mind and the emotions so consistently that I can think of a dozen ninety-minute movies far more difficult to endure,” critic Vincent Canby wrote.

Katy Perry on ‘I Kissed a Girl’: ‘Truth Be Told, I Did More Than That!’

When Katy Perry released the pop hit “I Kissed a Girl and I Liked It” in 2008, she says she was starting a conversation with people around the world.

“Truth be told, I did more than that!” she told the audience of the2017 HRC Los Angeles Gala while accepting the National Equality Award on Saturday night. “But how was I going to reconcile that with the gospel-singing girl raised in youth groups that were pro conversion camps? What I did know was that I was curious, and even then I knew that sexuality was not as black and white as this dress.

“But in 2008, when that song came out, I knew that it started a conversation that a lot of the world seemed curious enough to sing along to it.”

Perry went on to detail her religious upbringing (both of her parents are pastors) and how she “prayed the gay away at Jesus camps.” But soon her “bubble started to burst” and she discovered people who were different from her.

“These people were nothing like I had been taught to fear. They were the most free, strong, kind, and inclusive people that I have ever met,” she said. “They stimulated my mind, and they filled my heart with joy, and they danced with joy while doing it. These people are actually, magic, and they are magic because they are living their truth.”

From Coinage: See Where 6 Stars Were Before They Were Famous

Although she strayed away from the beliefs of her religion, Perry says she wouldn’t have chosen a different path for herself: “Priceless lessons happen large. The path of discovery has made me, has tested me, and forever changed me. You don’t get to choose your family, but you can choose your tribe,” she said. “I stand here as real evidence for all that no matter where you came from it is about where you are going, that real change, real evolution, and that real perception shift can happen, if we open our minds and soften our hearts.”

The pop star added that it would’ve been a lot easier for her to stay the “whipped-creamed-t–s-springing-poppy-lite-coffee-fun-anthem-animal-totem-singing-girl” who remained neutral politically.

“No longer can I sit in silence,” she says. “I have to stand up what I feel is true and that is equality and justice for all, period.”

Gavin Grimm on Persevering After Supreme Court Drops His Case: ‘This Fight Is Bigger Than Me’

 

The Supreme Court may have dismissed his court case — as well as the lower court’s previous ruling in his favor — but Gavin Grimm hasn’t given up on the struggle for greater rights for transgender students.

The transgender teen explained why this is just one setback in his crusade for students to use the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity, a battle he never expected to lead.

“This fight is bigger than me,” Grimm, 17, writes in an op-ed for the New York Times. “I came to realize that very early on, and it is truer now than it ever has been.”

“This fight is for other trans youth in my high school. It is for other trans youth in Virginia. It is for all trans youth who are in school or one day will be. It is for the friends and loved ones of these youth, who want these children to be happy and healthy, rather than at risk and in danger as so many trans people are.”

Now the face of the movement, Grimm initially was just a high school sophomore in Gloucester, Virginia, who was suddenly barred from using the men’s bathroom.

“The school board held a meeting — a public conversation about my genitals and restroom usage — without notifying me first,” Grimm, now a senior, recalls. “My mother and I found out by chance less than 24 hours before the meeting was to happen. An old friend of my mother’s had noticed a post going around Facebook, a rallying cry by adults in my community urging people to show up to the meeting in order to ‘keep that girl out of the boy’s room.’ ”

At that meeting, “people speaking out against me made a point of referring to me with female honorifics and pronouns,” he says. “They warned me that I was going to be raped or otherwise abused. They suggested that boys would sneak into the girls’ room and harm their children.”

VIDEO: This Is How Much It Would Cost to Paint the White House (And More Crazy Facts)

 

Grimm, with the help of the ACLU, eventually sued the school district and won the right to use the boys’ bathroom at Gloucester High School with Virginia’s Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. But he never had a chance, after the Supreme Court put a stay on the ruling until they could hear arguments on the case — and now the Justices have dismissed the case and cleared the previous ruling.

“Regardless of what obstacles come before me, regardless of what hatred or ignorance or discrimination I face, I will be fine, because I have love on my side,” Grimm writes.

‘100 Years Of Black Fashion’ Is About So Much More Than Clothes

This is unlike the hundreds of other “100 years of…” videos you’ve seen before.

Buzzfeed Yellow released “100 Years Of Black American Fashion” on Monday, marking the close of Black History Month. The video features some of our most beloved and popular trends, showing how black fashion evolved since the 1920s with iconic styles inspired by jazz, Motown and hip-hop.

It also provides a look back through black history in this country using the lens of fashion.

Consider the 1940s, when black soldiers were “often given more labor-intensive service roles based on the belief that they were unfit to serve as officers,” the video says, or the late 1950s-60s, when civil rights activists were given more “credence” for dressing in their “Sunday best.” 

Today, the Black Lives Matter movement is deeply steeped in fashion, including political statements printed on clothing andr hoodies worn in honor of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed five years ago this week. 

The fashion is something to admire, but the history matters most.

Christine Baranski Gets Recognized More as ‘Leonard’s Mom!’ from The Big Bang Theory Than Any of Her Roles

Christine Baranski is used to fans approaching her on the street but she’s always surprised when most of them say the same thing to her.

“More often than not, they point to me and say, ‘Leonard’s mother!’ even though I appear infrequently as her on The Big Bang Theory,” Baranski tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “The show is just such a megahit. There are worse things to be called, believe me.”

Baranski, 64, who is currently starring as attorney Diane Lockhart in The Good Wife spinoff, The Good Fight, has been enjoying working on the new series, which is available on CBS All Access. “It’s so funny, I hailed a cab and I got into one that had my picture on the top of it,” she says. “I just had to stand back, get my cell phone out and ask the driver to wait because I was like, ‘This is a once in a lifetime!’ “

RELATED VIDEO: Christine Baranski Is Offering to Play Betsy DeVos on ‘SNL’

“When I got to my apartment, I pulled my doorman over and said, ‘Take a picture of me in the cab!’ ” she continues, laughing. “He didn’t understand and I was like, ‘Look up!’ Yeah, this was a happy arrival home. Most days aren’t like that.”

The actress says she’s learned to appreciate such moments in her career — and life. “When it happens, you have to ride that lovely wave in because usually you are just paddling out,” she adds. “I am very good at standing back and saying, ‘This is a moment to remember.’ “

Winona Ryder’s facial expressions at the SAG Awards were nice — well, they were amazing — but, still, her reaction doesn’t come close to her “Stranger Things” co-stars watching their Super Bowl commercial.

Netflix unveiled a new “Stranger Things” teaser trailer during the game on Sunday, and the kids from the series seemed to have a viewing party. But they were not ready.

Following the teaser, Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers on the show, shared the video, which appears to show him freaking out along with castmates Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike, and Gaten Matarazzo, aka Dustin. 

These kids must’ve been spending a lot of time in Mirkwood, because taking a page out of “Lord of the Rings,” their reaction was the one to rule them all.

5 Kids Dressed Better Than All The Adults At The People’s Choice Awards

At the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles Wednesday night, the kids were our choice. They dressed better than just about every single grownup in attendance. 

There was some good in the adult red carpet: Forty-seven-year-old Gwen Stefani was on hand in an adorable Reem Acra two-piece to remind us all she’s aging in reverse. Jennifer Lopez, who is also 47 and somehow appearing more youthful all the time, looked lovely in a gown by the same designer. “This is Us” star Chrissy Metz gets an honorable mention, too, for looking gorgeous in a custom Eloquii gown.

Other than that, though, the looks were a little scattered. We’re not here to name names, but let’s just say that the handful of kids, in their floral gowns and smart suits, looked better than the rest of the red carpet combined (ahem, “Fuller House” cast). 

Check out the good, the bad and the adorable below.

WATCH: Getting More Than Your Money’s Worth

We’ve all heard the expression, “You get what you paid for,” but we also all have experiences of feeling like we got little value for something we paid a lot for, and lots of value for something we got for little or no money (I’m hoping that certain YouTube videos fall into that category…). Maybe the real truth is that we get what we choose to get – that we are responsible for the amount of value we receive. And if that’s the case, choose to get maximum value from whatever you invest your time and money into. I hope this helps you get the most from this new year.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

Shinola Finds Turntables and Diamond Watches Easier to Make Domestically Than Ready-to-wear

Having built a business stocked with watches, bicycles, journals, leather totes and other items made in the U.S., Shinola is adding turntables and diamond watches this fall. But there is one category that still eludes the Detroit-based company: ready-to-wear clothing.
“I don’t think we’re ready for it,” said Daniel Caudill, Shinola’s creative director, who came to the City of Angels from the Motor City to preview the fall collection at the brand’s store in The Grove. “Apparel is a really big undertaking. We’re still a start-up company. It’s definitely something in our future.”
While Shinola already produces sweatshirts in Los Angeles and outerwear with Golden Bear, it refuses to divert responsibility for any category to a licensee. It is also smarting from an admonishment issued last June “to avoid deceiving consumers” by the Federal Trade Commission, which ordered it to transition from the slogan “where American is made” and append claims of being built in the U.S. with information stating that parts include “significant imported content.”
“We do everything ourselves,” Caudill said. “The whole brand is about job creation.”
The possibilities are endless for what can bear the Shinola name. “We can make anything in this country if we want to,” he said. Not

We Need The Unifying Power Of Comedy Now More Than Ever

Not a lot of unity in Mudville today ― at least not for the half-plus percentage of Americans who voted for the second-place candidate in this year’s Presidential election. We’ve seen how comedy can be used as a weapon. It can be used to create an “other” or a “less than.” Comedy can be used to create distances between people.

But honestly, that’s not what good comedy does.

Comedy provides groups of people with a collective and resounding sense of shared community. We laugh together because we are connected by a truth much greater than ourselves. We’ve all heard the expression, “It’s funny because it’s true.”

So what’s true now?

Half the country feels one way that seems radically different than the way the other half feels. Two very different world views, and comedy ― really funny and true comedy ― can find the thing that connect those two different views. Comedy can find ways to bring those two worlds into a single, shared space. Because we are all human beings, and there are things we share… no matter how vast the chasm may seem.

But comedy isn’t enough. Once the door is ajar, we must become improvisers.

We need to listen.

We need to remain judgement-free (of ourselves and of others).

We need to eradicate fear.

Improvisation teaches us that the very things that make us so different, when united, create something wonderful right away (to borrow a phrase).

So there will be a time to laugh and there will be a time to act. Laughter creates a moment when we see things as one, and improv allows us to take that moment and turn it into a thing to be used, to be wrestled with, to be collectively created. Because we can’t do it alone.

Despite our many differences, we are an ensemble. And in a true ensemble, all of us are always better than one of us.

Turns Out, It Costs More To Be A Groomsman Than A Bridesmaid

When all is said and done, it turns out groomsmen shell out more on wedding duties than bridesmaids — at least according to a survey of 1,005 people by finance and banking website GOBankingRates

Let these handy infographics guide you through bridesmaid’s and groomsmen’s spending habits:

1. Clothing

2. Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties

3. Wedding Gifts

4. Incidental Wedding Costs

Bridesmaids are more likely to go over budget; 32 percent of bridesmaids said the total amount they spent was more than they budgeted or expected to pay, while only 28 percent of groomsmen said the same.

Here’s a handy chart to keep overspending at bay:

Thinner Than Thou

Thinner Than Thou


TV says it. Magazines say it. American society commands it. You must be thin. You must be young. Fad diets. Fat-purging pills. Fitness clubs. Liposuction. Breast implants. Steroids.In the tomorrow of "Thinner Than Thou," the cult of the body has become the one true religion. The Dedicated Sisters are a religious order sworn to help anorexic, bulimic, and morbidly obese youth. Throughout the land, houses of worship have been replaced by the health clubs of the Crossed Triceps. And through hypnotically powerful evangelical infomercials, the Reverend Earl preaches the heaven of the Afterfat, where you will look like a Greek god and eat anything you want. Just sign over your life savings and come to Sylphania, the most luxurious weight-loss spa in the world, where the Reverend himself will personally supervise your attainment of physical perfection.But the glory of youth and thinness that America worships conceals a hidden world where teens train for the competitive eating circuit, where fat porn and obese strippers feed people’s dark desires, and where an underground railroad of rebellious religions remember when people worshipped God instead of the Afterfat.As Annie, an anorexic, and her friend Kelly, who is so massive she can barely walk, find out, the tender promises of the Dedicated Sisters are fulfilled by forced feedings and enforced starvation in hidden prisons. As middle-aged Jeremy discovers, Sylphania is a concentration camp where failure to lose weight and tone up leads to brutal punishment. The Rev. Earl’s public sympathy for the overweight conceals a private contempt . . . and, beneath that, a terrible longing known only to a select few. The inevitable decay of old age is theonly thing keeping mankind from reaching perfection. Luckily, Reverend Earl has a plan that will take care of that . . . .

Art Therapy Is More Than Just Making Nice Pictures

Anyone who has ever put pen to paper, crayon to coloring book, or hand to wet clay knows the healing powers embedded in such creative endeavors. More than just a pastime, art can be an escape, a stimulus, a war cry or a tranquil reprieve.

Art therapy, defined as “a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of communication,” revolves around this principal of art’s immense power. Open to children and adults of any background and experience, the still-evolving field explores modes of expression, understanding and healing that occur when paint touches canvas. While too many schools today run under the assumption that art is extraneous, a diversion from traditional academic subjects, art therapists know better. They know that art has the potential to change lives, and, even to save them.

Tally Tripp is the art therapy clinic director of George Washington University, specializing in individuals who have experienced trauma. Entering the field in its nascent phase, in the 1970s, Tripp was elemental in shaping the field as we know it today. 

Continuing The Huffington Post’s coverage of the often misunderstood field that is art therapy, and the pioneers who continue to sculpt it, we reached out to Tripp to discuss the details of her career’s past and present.  

How did you become interested in art therapy? How did you learn about the field? 

When I first learned about art therapy it was definitely a field in its infancy. Personally, I have always loved art making and combined that with an interest in working with people. In high school I spent summers in New York working for the Children’s Aid Society with disadvantaged children in a camp program. It was there, as a counselor in the arts and crafts program, I came across one of the original art therapy journals: the Bulletin of Art Therapy (edited by Elinor Ulman and produced between 1961-1970).

For many years, that journal was the only art therapy publication available. At the same time, in 1971, Elinor Ulman and her colleague, psychologist Bernard Levy started an art therapy program at the George Washington University. Pretty quickly my goal became to study art therapy in the master’s program at GW, which I did between 1978 and 1981. Now, full circle, I am a full time professor in the art therapy program at GW and the director of the GW Art Therapy Clinic.

How did art therapy look when you first immersed yourself in it? 

In the late 1970s, art therapy was still an emerging profession. It was definitely an exciting time for the field as we students were taught by some of the early pioneers: Elinor Ulman, Edith Kramer and Hanna Kwiatkowska — innovative thinkers developing clinical approaches that were based largely on intuition coupled with psychoanalytic thinking that was popular at the time. Also in those days there were few texts or research studies on art therapy to guide us, so we learned primarily by our experiences and our clinical work. As art therapy was a relatively unknown profession, we all put time and effort into spreading the word and educating others about its value.

The field is more established now, and more often than not, people have heard of art therapy and have some understanding of how it works. Art therapists now have licenses in some states as well as levels of professional credentialing and board certification. Beyond that, we have a lot of art therapy literature at our fingertips including research studies supporting the efficacy of art therapy and describing how it is utilized across many settings and populations. Art therapists can now be found in various settings — from medical and psychiatric hospitals, to schools, geriatric facilities, community and studio settings, and in private practice.

What are your areas of interest in the field? 

I have maintained a private practice in art therapy for over 30 years. My specialization is working with individuals who have experienced trauma. I find these clients are excellent candidates for art therapy precisely because the art can provide a means for expressing the inexpressible feelings that are often shut down or pushed away from consciousness in response to traumatic events. It has been exciting in the last 25 years to see that neuroscience research has validated the kind of work we do. Through brain imagery, we now know that the cognitive and executive functioning of the brain is for the most part “off line” when people are recalling their traumas, rendering them essentially “speechless.” This helps explain why traditional verbal therapy is often not enough when working with trauma, and why art (imagery) and other experiential therapies are so effective.

I reached out to you in part because of Suicide Awareness Month. In your private practice do you work with many patients grappling with suicidal thoughts? What are some of the methods you practice in such circumstances? 

Any therapist in private practice will have to deal with patients who are struggling with suicidal thoughts from time to time. Negative beliefs and hopelessness can render the individual helpless to combat the urge for self-harm. To work with suicidal thoughts, a clinician must first assess how developed the plan is, and, if the patient is truly in imminent danger of self-harm, hospitalization may be required. But hospitalization has its limits and is only one step.

Beyond the immediate safety needs, I work on resourcing my patients to help them develop other coping strategies so that they can better manage their feelings and find alternate responses. Some interventions might include creating a safety plan with a hierarchy of actions to take, or to come up with a list of resources that can be quickly accessed when the suicidal impulse arises, or helping with a variety of cognitive and behavioral restructuring techniques, or perhaps increasing the frequency of therapy sessions, etc. Sometimes I will recommend a soothing art activity for “homework” such as working in an art coloring book or journal, that can assist with a person feeling grounded and safe. Art can soothe anxiety and help with re-focusing attention to something more positive and less destructive than a suicidal plan.

Are most of the patients you encounter already involved in art? Are they ever skeptical?  

It is true that most people think of going to an art therapist because they enjoy making art and are already involved in it somehow. But that is not the only kind of person who will benefit from art therapy.

For example, one man I worked with was also being seen in marriage therapy and was referred to me because it was determined that he needed to access more emotional depth. This man had no apparent interest in art, but agreed to see me as an experiment because art therapy had been recommended. I invited him to work on a picture of simply lines and shapes and just “see what happens.” His first picture, a simple downward sloping line was created in a matter of seconds. But when we held the “picture” up and explored it from a distance, he became struck by the downward motion and then exclaimed: “This is exactly what I have been trying to describe. It looks like my mother’s lap. Empty. She was never able to really hold me!” The image and description of not being held as a child became a fundamental theme in our work together. And within a few months, this patient enrolled in a painting class and began a new appreciation for art.

Can you explain what you hope to achieve with a suicidal patient through art therapy? What changes are you looking to make?

Often the artwork will convey a suicidal feeling of hopelessness or despair long before words are consciously available. The image can provide a means for discussing feelings that are either unclear or difficult to verbalize. Art works tend to be self-referential so we work actively with the images and themes that are produced.

For example, an image of a desolate landscape might signal an empty feeling and suicidal state in the artist. While I do not interpret the image, the patient and I will work together to explore the metaphor and any personal meaning or feelings that are attached. Because the picture is something we can look at together, it gives both artist and therapist an opportunity to “do” something with it. Art therapy can empower the individual to find a solution or create a “preferable ending” in the art. It is interesting to note that creating artwork that challenges the initial feelings of hopelessness will actually affect the neural firing in the brain. The more practice a person has exploring “preferable endings” for example, the more this will result in the brain finding alternatives to self-destructive behavior. So making art can be a good practice for seeking solutions and reducing negative thoughts.

Is there a certain type of patient you think is more suited to art therapy as opposed to other therapy methods? 

Anyone who is willing to explore feelings through the process of making art can benefit from art therapy. Some people will naturally be drawn to this kind of therapy — children in particular where their natural language is through art and play.

Adolescents are also good candidates for art therapy because they may be resistant to traditional talk therapies and usually will enjoy working with art materials. I work with adults, however, and maintain that they are still children inside, as it is often an adult embodying that child state coming in to my office. The art helps bypass the defense and intellectualization inherent in verbal language. When a new (adult) patient is referred to me, I often start by asking, “Why do you think art therapy will help?” Right there, I am getting an alliance with the patient by suggesting that I believe that the experiential and creative nature of making art, in the company of an attuned art therapist, will make a difference.

What makes art therapy so powerful?

Art therapy is more than just making nice pictures. In fact, art therapy is more often a process of making ugly or messy pictures that depict a feeling state, not a final product that is all neat and tied together. Art therapy is about that creative process where the client, in the company of an art therapist, is working and re working problems via a range of fluid and variable art materials.

In private practice, I find the spontaneously created art pieces are the most meaningful and often help a person find resolution for specific traumatic experiences. The benefit occurs when the art made facilitates a sense of mastery over the problem. For example, a patient who has experienced years of abuse or neglect in childhood may be able to finally express feelings that had been avoided or pushed out of conscious awareness because they were overwhelming at the time. The images often speak more loudly than words. With the encouragement of the art therapist, difficult feelings can be expressed through making art.

The process varies widely so there is no one way to describe what happens in a session. When a person first faces a blank piece of paper, there might be some resistance or hesitancy to explore feelings so the resultant images may appear tight and controlled as in a line drawing or pencil sketch. But after some trust is established in the therapeutic relationship, the art process can move towards more expressive activity, which would suggest the patient is accessing stronger emotion. Often the patient will begin experimenting with more evocative materials at that point, for example using paint or clay to express feelings like anger, shame or fear. The art therapist is knowledgeable about psychological problems and the use of various art media; the process is flexible and individually focused to support the patient to find materials and techniques that connect with the issues at hand. And as a patient becomes more open to the process and discovers more creative resources within, the art product will also change. In art therapy, there is always that creative edge that keeps the process dynamic and contributes to the process of healing.

A New Survey Says Women Spend More Time Shopping Than Socializing

shoe-shopping-stocksy

There’s part of shopping that’s all about necessity—we all need household basics and food to eat after all. How much time do you think you spend browsing and buying? And, perhaps more interestingly, how much time do you think you spend on it compared to time you do other things? Like, hang with your ladies for a glass of wine and a spot of gossip?

Statistic Brain Research Institute has just broken down the average day in an effort to understand what takes up the majority of our time. Not surprisingly, sleep and work claim the biggest amount of hours (for the ladies, we’re averaging 8.76 hours of sleep and 6.66 of work per day; men work a little more and sleep a little less).

The number we didn’t see coming? Women shop more than socialize, logging 1.3 hours a day versus .73 hours of hang-time (even when you add in time spent on the phone or emailing, it’s still less). It seems a little surprising, but here’s the million-dollar question: what about when you’re shopping with a friend? Does that count as socializing?

The Shocking Truth About Tinder; It’s More Than Just a Hook-Up App!

Have you heard the news? Tinder is causing a ‘Dating Apocalypse.’ That’s right, this simple dating app is causing changes in human mating and dating behavior, the likes of which we’ve never seen before… that is, if you agree with the September Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales, “Tinder and the Dawn of the ‘Dating Apocalypse.” Not convinced? Browse over to the R.I. Health Department and read their conclusion that Tinder is one cause of the nation-wide rise in STDs. That’s one powerful app, right? Could it be true? Has Tinder forever changed the way people date?

What is Tinder and Why has it become the Focus of Debate?

Tinder is a free, location-based mobile dating app that simplifies the process most dating websites require. You simply download the app to your smart phone, link to your Facebook account, choose up to six photos of yourself, and write a brief bio. That’s it!

Then the game begins. The app shows you photos of singles based on your preferences. You swipe left if you don’t like them and swipe right if you do. If someone you like also swiped right on your photo, the app immediately informs you, “It’s a Match!” and urges you to begin chatting. Beware: Tinder is addictive. But, is it just a hook-up app for the ‘hit-it-and-quit-it’ culture, or is it something more?

The Appeal

If you’ve familiar with online dating, you may wonder what the appeal is, and how you can find someone worth your time given what little information the app gives and requires. But that’s what makes Tinder great. The app is simple, easy on the eye and feels like a game. The objective? To find matches and start conversations. And when you are matched, starting conversations is easier. After all, you know your match is also interested.

Tinder is more efficient because it doesn’t require answering a long series of questions to find the best matches for you. It’s a matter of choosing whether to swipe left or right. Sounds too simple, right? Well, not exactly. The decision-making process involved in using Tinder is both rational and emotional. You’ll rationalize your swiping decision based on age, distance and a short bio (if included). But let’s be honest, it’s all about the photos. Swiping left or right depends on how attractive you find a candidate, and that’s pure emotion.

Tinder Is Only for Hook-Ups.

If you believe the hype and speak to the wrong people, you’ll be convinced that Tinder is just another hook up app. But, dismissing this app would be a mistake, and I can give you 50 million reasons in 196 countries worldwide to convince you. Yes, Tinder is popular and widespread.

Over the past few months, I’ve used Tinder Plus (premium subscription / worldwide) to “informally research” Tinder users (women and men) across a wide age-range (25-50) all over the world. And No, I did not create fake profiles.

What I found? Almost 60 percent of all women who wrote a narrative in their profile included a reference to NOT wanting a hook-up. Here are examples copied from Tinder profiles in the United States:

Not looking for a hook-up, but thanks for the thought . . . Makes me feel all warm ‘n fuzzy, LOL.

NOT HERE FOR A HOOK-UP. KEEP YOUR STDs TO YOURSELF!

Looking 4 a match, not a F*** B****!

Hook-ups, please swipe left. XOXO

So, people are aware of Tinder’s “hook-up” reputation, yet they are still willing to try the application hoping to connect with someone who is also looking for a serious relationship. Are these women hiding their true intentions about hooking-up? I think not.

Can Tinder Lead to a Long-Term Relationship?

There’s plenty of discussion about the “seriousness” of mobile dating apps. In fact, many find them superficial because of how simple they are. Perhaps this adds to the app’s allure and charm. Whatever the case, Tinder is popular and has brought online dating to the masses. People who have considered online dating desperate find it much easier to download the simple app, link to Facebook and swipe away.

Indeed, there are plenty of twenty-somethings who are on Tinder for a quick hook-up. And, if you use it, you’ll probably find a match who swiped right to convince you to hook up with them. But you’ll find just as many interesting, attractive and successful people who are only interested in a committed relationship.

Afraid of matching and chatting with a married person? Yes, unfortunately it happens on Tinder! Oh, but wait, it also happens in bars, restaurants, at speed dating events, and through matchmaking services. It happens in life!

Does Tinder make hooking-up and casual sex easier? Yes, if you’re looking for it. But it makes finding meaningful relationships easier as well. What happens after you’re matched, depends on you and your partner. Trust your instincts and make sure your partner is on the same page. If someone makes you uncomfortable, un-match them, report the issue and move on.

Today’s technology, connectivity and innovative applications make connecting with and meeting new friends easy. But at the end of the day, you’re still the one who decides who you find attractive and with whom you want to spend your time. Tinder is just a tool — a portal to connect and introduce you to others. But it’s the biggest and baddest on the playground. And if you’re in the game, don’t you want to play with the best? Tinder is simple, quick, fun and free — and everyone seems to be doing it. If you’re single and looking, keep an open mind and check it out. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Home Storage: More Than 50 Practical Projects & Ideas

Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Home Storage: More Than 50 Practical Projects & Ideas


At any given moment, your home probably contains thousands of moveable items, some large but most small: dishes and drain cleaners, blankets and baby books, socks and sleeping bags, hammers and hotdog buns, candles and can-openers and cribbage boards. In a perfect world, most of these items have homes-places where they’re stored outside daily view but where you can find them at a moments notice. In our imperfect world, though, there are probably hundreds of items that are nomads, transients. They have temporary, exposed residences in jumbled drawers, on top of cabinets, across desktops, on window ledges. How often have you looked long and hard for an item in every logical storage place, only to find that it’s been hiding in plain view, in the last place you’d expect? The goal of this book is to help you bring order to this jumble, to tame and civilize the hoards of small and large household items begging for permanent, logical storage. To do this, we’ll give you dozens of easy-to-build storage projects. Each is designed for adaptability and versatility, so you can use it for a variety of different purposes in various rooms. Some projects may require small alterations, but others can be built exactly as directed. Before getting to the projects, we give you a section on planning and assessing, and a section on general building techniques that will be useful in many different projects. After that, it’s off to the storage races, with more than 50 projects, ranging from basic wall cabinets to innovative racks for storing CDs and home electronics. While many projects use standard lumber and other building pipe and electrical conduit. Have fun with these projects. Take the time to plan themout, and take pride in them when you’re finished. Remember: When you increase the efficiency of your storage space, you create a more comfortable living environment for yourself and your family. Innovative, attractive projects that can provide efficient storage throughout your home Easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for projects at all skill levels Shows how to frame, finish and organize a brand-new closet Variations and ideas sections to help you adapt projects to your needs Detailed techniques section for working with power and hand tools

You’ll Need More Than A Credit Card To Get Your Hands on Saint Laurent’s New Couture Collection

With price tags in the 5-digit range, couture collections are prohibitively expensive for most of us. But now, Saint Laurent is taking the already exclusive category to the next level.

Today, the French fashion house announced plans to bring back couture with “Yves Saint Laurent” Couture ivory silk label under the tutelage of designer Hedi Slimane. The house’s last couture show was in 2002 and designed by the late Yves Saint Laurent, who died in 2008.

The new collection of silky tuxedos and black column dresses will debut in Saint Laurent ads shot by Slimane next month. But shelling out tens of thousands of dollars for a look simply won’t be enough to get your hands on one. According to the brand’s chief executive, Francesca Bellettini, you’ll also need to be a “friend of the house”.

“Hedi Slimane decides these orders case by case. Unlike a couture collection, this is an even more exclusive definition,” Bellettini, told The New York Times. She also said that the collection will be available to actresses to be worn for red carpet events, such as the Oscars or the Cannes Film Festival.

We’ll keep you posted on the entire collection as it launches but, until then, we’re throwing it back to 2002—to Yves Saint Laurent’s very last couture collection, which is absolutely breathtaking.

12 Pieces Of Advice For Artists More Practical Than ‘Follow Your Heart’

 ”Follow your heart.” “Trust your gut.” “Find your voice.” “Stay true to your vision.”

It’s not that there isn’t merit to these oft-touted nuggets of wisdom for aspiring artists, it’s just that, sometimes, following your heart won’t help you pay rent on time. 

If you’re looking for the kind of advice that, while it may not look as great on an inspirational postcard, will help you actually sustain yourself as a working artist, we highly suggest Alix Sloan‘s Launching Your Art Career: A Practical Guide for Artists.

Sloan, a curator and consultant, enlists the help of 40 artists and dealers to compile a bullshit-free guide to making art, making connections, making sales and making money. We’ve compiled some of our favorite parts below, to give you a taste. 

Behold, 12 pieces of actually practical advice for a struggling, emerging or really any sort of artist.

1. Take the job. “Don’t be one of those cliché art school kids who considers himself above the idea of art as commodity. Take the commercial work. Take the design work. Do the band’s poster for $ 20 and a six-pack. Do whatever it takes to be able to call yourself a working artist. It’s a noble title, regardless of the particulars.” Noah Antieau, art dealer

2. Make nice! “Your best connections are your peers. Stay in contact with them. Be curious. Visit other artist’s studios and add like-minded people to your mailing list.” -Cara Enteles, artist

3. Do you. “Aim to have people recognize your work in a crowded room … to know immediately that it’s undeniably yours.” -Lori Field, artist 

 4. Get some perspective. “Gaining perspective by observing your practice amongst a field of others, and the culture and time in which it is done, is a career goal that follows a wide arc … It is not the sole responsibility of your art dealer, for example, to place your work in cultural context, nor should you allow this without your input.” -Martin Kruck, artist 

5. It’s just another job. “When I’m talking with younger artists I stress that making, exhibiting and selling art in a commercial gallery is just like any other job one hopes to be successful at. It means working hard, honoring deadlines and trusting your co-workers to do their jobs well too.” -William Baczek, art dealer

6. Don’t go crazy with the zeros. “Don’t raise your prices too fast because once they are up, you should not lower them.” -Jayme McLellan, art dealer 

7. More, more, more! “Feed your output with as much input (books, lectures, films, leisure, rest) as you can handle, and in some cases, more than you can manage.” -Didier William, artist 

8. Keep your friends close and your inspiration closer. “Now there are endless images at your fingertips, but you need to find the ones that awaken your creativity and keep them near to you. Sometimes it can be something blurry and vague … I have this one little scrap of paper with a very low-res image of a kitten’s face on it, and something about it makes me come back to it again and again, trying to capture something elusive about it. When you find an image like that, hold onto it like it was gold.” -Marion Peck, artist 

9. Get that domain name stat. “You don’t need business cards. You do need a website.” -Zach Feuer, art dealer

10. Don’t get comfortable. “You may have to work at a real job while you are making this happen. DO NOT get a creative job. Get a job you won’t get comfortable in. Save all your creative juices for your own art practice!” -Martha Rich, artist  

11. Embrace the tribe. “It’s good to remember (not when you are making new work as it might be better to forget) that there are armies of manically mono-focused people (I almost said monsters) out there who want something close to what you want. They are your tribe, not your enemy.” -David Humphrey, artist 

12. Go outside. “Stay deeply connected to what’s going on in your own art world. Under no circumstances isolate yourself in the studio with a solitary practice, thinking you’re some kind of lone wolf or Van Gogh.” -Mark Wolfe, art dealer

11 Animals At Weddings Who Are Better Dressed Than Guests

By Rachel Torgerson for TheKnot.com

Sorry, but we just can’t resist rounding up our favorite pictures of animals attending weddings. We get new ones every day, and they’re just way too cute not to share. Whether it’s Burrito the donkey who loves cheesing for the camera at Arizona weddings, Spicy the pup who walked with a human ring bearer down the ceremony aisle, or Rosie the bunny who wished she could rock her wedding floral collar every day, animals who attend weddings in people clothes are probably one of the cutest things out there.

So here are the 12 best-dressed animals from our real weddings gallery, in no particular order.

​Jennifer and Jeremy’s rescue dogs Kote and Otis were also given a special part in the ceremony. “Everyone knows how much we love our rescue dogs, they are like our children,” says Jennifer. The dogs were walked down the aisle so each could be kissed by Jeremy. “It was a sweet moment that we will always cherish,” says Jennifer.

7. This dog, who walked in tandem with a human ring bearer — hard to tell who is cuter here!
