London Radio Station Quizzes Ryan Gosling On Musicals And Things Didn’t Go So Well

Well, this interview probably didn’t go according to plan.

Ryan Gosling sat down with London’s Magic Radio to promote his award-winning movie musical, “La La Land,” and proceeded to fail a quiz based on the film genre.

Among other things, the actor said he’s never seen “West Side Story,” and he guessed that lyrics from “The Sound of Music” were from “Mary Poppins.” 

In fairness, both movies starred Julie Andrews. Still … come on, now.

”So this is basically an intervention,” Gosling joked at the end of the quiz. “It’s a musical intervention. And I needed it.”

In case Gosling wants to dive into the genre, he can check out the American Film Institute’s list of the “Greatest Movie Musicals Of All Time.” Since the actor said he’s already seen “Singin’ in the Rain,” he can start with film No. 2 on the list, which is, coincidentally, “West Side Story.”

Co-star Emma Stone, on the other hand, fared much better on the impromptu quiz.

Check out the interview in the video above.

Learning to Suffer Well

Buddhism is very down to earth and easy to understand for someone who isn’t trying to keep reality at arm’s length. The Buddha’s genius was in stating the obvious and articulating it. Buddhist wisdom pops up in unexpected places. As a nightcap, I like to watch old sit coms. One of my favorites. is Frazier, a show about a neurotic, meddling radio psychiatrist and Niles, his equally neurotic psychiatrist brother. Improbably, their father, Martin is a retired working class cop, possessed of a sense of reality his sons lack.

In one episode, his sons hear him reminisce about his time in the mounted police and buy Martin his horse partner for his birthday. Martin loves it. As he’s grooming his old friend, he notices that both he and the horse have gotten old. Frazier notices that he is sad and tries make him feel better with a therapeutic fix. Martin stops him and tells him their is nothing to analyze. “People get old,” he says. “I’ll be OK.” In this short interchange Martin teaches Frazier about suffering, impermanence, and the impersonal nature of it.

The implacable simplicity of this is hard to get. Frazier and Niles are in an industry devoted to analyzing suffering out of existence with talk or dulling it through drugs. Martin has intuitively employed RAIN, recognition, acceptance, investigation, and non-identification. He not happy about growing old but he doesn’t personalize it and make it a problem.

One of our nieces shared her simple observation of how her children and their conflicts- “Get anxious and hit your sibling.” From this dynamic we can see how a self is created around anxiety, conflict and grievance that lead us to the tragic dimension of life. Shakespeare is so alive today because he saw it so clearly. “Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in its petty pace from day to day and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death….Life is but a walking shadow a poor player struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. T’is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” This is the Buddha’s truth- suffering, impermanence, and emptiness. Had Macbeth come to that a few acts earlier, he wouldn’t be in the fix he’s in and we wouldn’t have a great play. We might not have human history either.

The best thing we can do as humans is learn to suffer well. Tragedy teaches us what not to do- take yourself so seriously that you self destruct. Comedy teaches us what to do- don’t take yourself so seriously. Learn to laugh. to hold it in awareness instead of sinking in despair or taking it out on someone else. Suffer well. Don’t skapegoat yourself or someone else. Help other people suffer well too. “We are such stuff as dreams are made of and our little lives are rounded with a sleep.”

Don’t Worry, Britney Spears Is ‘Alive And Well’

Despite an earlier report from the Sony Music Global Twitter account that stated Britney Spears was dead, a rep for the singer confirmed to CNN that she was “alive and well.” (Don’t scare us like that, 2016.) 

On Monday morning, the Sony account posted a now-deleted tweet reading, “britney spears is dead by accident! we will tell you more soon #RIPBritney  ” Despite the alarming news from the music account, the odd phrasing and use of emoji made the report seem suspicious.

Oddly, or perhaps tellingly, the official Twitter account for Bob Dylan was the only other source for the news of Spears’ death. The announcement used the same crying emoji.

CNN news editor AnneClaire Stapleton tweeted that Spears’ rep confirmed that the singer is indeed alive.

It appears the tweets were posted as a result of a hacking. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a group called OurMine was found to be behind the erroneous information. THR noted that the group was possibly using these hacks as a way to tout its security services.

Spears had last posted on Instagram about hunting and ziplining with her two sons, Sean and Jayden, and her niece, Maddie, for the holidays.

Some good hunting and zip lining for the holidays! Merry Christmas!!

Mystical “Westworld:” or How To Live Well and Die Well At The Same Time

“Our business is to wake up.” ~ Aldous Huxley

It has been amusing to read all of the banter floating around the Internet concerning the story lines of “Westworld.” Humans are immensely talented creatures when it comes to creating stories, creating narratives – especially mysteries and paradoxes. We are equally deft at making maps.

But the map is not the territory.

Light is both a particle and a wave. The glass is both half empty and half full. Try to get your prefrontal cortex to map those paradoxes.

You’re perfect. And there’s room for improvement.” ~ Suzuki Roshi

After “Westworld” sweeps all awards for best directing, best writing, best editing and best acting, more philosophical discussions may take place – particularly if someone proposes that The Man in Black (obviously written long before the election), our collective shadow, represents Donald Trump or at least Trump’s level of consciousness regarding mankind, power, war, money, capitalism, business, the planet, etc… someone desperately searching for something he is already sitting on…

It is the archetypal tragic hero’s journey.

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity”
~ Yeats

“Westworld” displays the greatest understanding of Eastworld since “The Matrix,” “Interstellar,” since Huxley’s “The Island” – Eastworld being Buddhism, Hinduism, yoga, meditation and all spiritualities that appear paradoxical to Westerners.

Can human consciousness perceive the rabbit and duck at the same time?
2016-12-05-1480943559-550641-6c550c251a6fa4a15acc5a3890081b6e.jpeg
Because perception is all we have. And yet it is only a map.

Humans are like fish swimming in the water of Westworld, unable to perceive the water, swimming only at one level of consciousness, unable to see their own paradigm, unable to see their true natures, unable to see other possibilities for existing, unawakened. The hosts are designed to act like fires under Petrie dishes to distill the guests’ essences, to hold mirror up to nature so that humans can witness their repressed shadow sides.

But we learn that it is the guests in “Westworld” who are automatons, predictable. Ironically it is the hosts who are becoming awakened faster than the guests. In just a few generations they have gained better self-reflectiveness and superior awareness of awareness than humans.

Humans are slow to change. We fear change. We conserve. Change requires uncertainty. Thus we are conservative by nature. Better the devil we know than uncertain progress. That is why conservatives often beat progressives. Fear. Yet the question remains, for a new paradigm to be birthed must the old paradigm go out with a bang? Births can be rather bloody. And violent. Seldom are they accompanied by merely a whimper.

“For a temple to be built a temple must be destroyed.” ~ Nietzsche

Western civilization’s paradigm – buttressed by capitalism, science, and religion – does not provide tools to transcend or escape Westworld. Not even a map to arrive at the center of the maze.

“The level of consciousness that created the problem will be unable to solve it.” ~ Einstein

Maybe we need a few more Einsteins before we can see light as both a particle and a wave?

The metaphors of “Westworld” are so meaty that they could engender as many discussions as “Hamlet” has engendered. There are so many levels, layers and dimensions… and even a few times zones. The mark of a true masterpiece.

And yet all of the levels, layers, dimensions and times compress into one. They represent Brahman.

The story lines are maya. Everything we perceive through our five senses that our minds chunk into narratives is maya (ephemeral, illusory, fictional, a dream, a game).

Here’s one meta-interpretation: our current level of human consciousness is obviously not an end; it is a means. It is evolving. And all sentient beings are playing roles in its evolution. They are playing their individual roles.

Some Buddhists believe that awakening is when you find nirvana in samsara, when you can dance the razor’s edge of knowing that you are playing your own individual game/fiction/dream and that you are part of something bigger also. You are the queen of your game and a pawn in another game. And the board. And already dead. Separation is revery.

The game is real. And it is not. More difficult paradoxes to fathom.

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
~ Hamlet

How much war and suffering must humans’ egos create before we realize that the only truth is love/beauty?

Cease all motor functions. Meditate. Awaken.

Learn how to live well and die well at the same time. Learn how to transcend fear because fear and love are inversely correlated.

“We are not mad. We are human. We want to love, and someone must forgive us for the paths we take to love, for the paths are many and dark, and we are ardent and cruel in our journey.” ~ Leonard Cohen

Film Review: The Impossible Is, Well, Not Quite Yet Possible

2015-07-22-1437577369-8537887-sx70.jpg

Polaroid has always been a bit of a legend and a bit of a mystery to me. I grew up in the 80s, so Polaroid was pop culture, although less and less so as I came of age. By the time I became a “photographer” Polaroids were no longer really in use, even though the Polaroid Corporation continued to make various films into the late 2000s. Finally, by 2008 or so, it had completely vanished.

Enter the Impossible Project, a Dutch company that bought the old Polaroid factory along with their patents etc. Soon Polaroid film – and therefore Polaroid cameras – would be up and working again. However, not all would be the same.

Given my lifelong curiosity with Polaroid cameras, I recently decided to dive in. I contacted the good people at The Impossible Project and we hashed out a deal for them to sponsor a project. Soon after they sent me a really nice refurbished SX-70 along with a hefty supply of film. Thanks be to The Impossible Project and their wonderful employees!

I really wanted to like their film. I really wanted to fall in love with the SX-70, one of the most romantic cameras of all time. I imagined myself roaming the streets of New York, SX-70 slung over my shoulder, making some of my greatest photographs to date. Alas, none of this would come to pass.

Here’s the short version of the story: Impossible film is just not stable enough (yet!) to be really useful. I hate to say it, but that seems to be the truth of the matter.

I tried the SX-70 indoors with ample light, but to no avail. Here’s Matthew in a failed attempt at a brightly lit portrait.

2015-07-22-1437578429-9801140-PolaroidBW3.jpeg

Next, I tried the B&W film outdoors. Better success. Here’s Granamyr’s claw. But things were still difficult. Sunlight and heat would be major obstacles to overcome in New York in July. The film doesn’t like weather that is too hot, or too cold. It also doesn’t like too much light in those first few seconds after exposure.

2015-07-22-1437578465-9981971-PolaroidBW1.jpeg

I installed the frog tongue, after a lot of frustration (poor directions, no visuals), and things again improved some. Here are a few more attempts at outdoor photography with color and black and white film.

2015-07-22-1437578503-4450029-polaroid4.jpeg

2015-07-22-1437578979-3935404-PolaroidBW2.jpeg

2015-07-22-1437578586-5309220-Polaroid5.jpeg

In this next shot, the brick wall was a vibrant yellow. As you can see the film did not pick up the color well at all. In the following shot, a red and white wall is similarly washed out, although the photo is my favorite of all of them. It’s artsy and abstract and fun! This is perhaps were the gem lies in Impossible film – in the experimentation and fun.

2015-07-22-1437578774-4260075-polaroid3.jpeg

2015-07-22-1437578799-9227198-Polaroid1.jpeg

This next image shows the lack of detail in the image, despite having the focus sharp at the time of capture.

2015-07-22-1437578902-7962715-PolaroidBW4.jpeg

The Impossible Project has been around for some time now. I think it is safe to say the “novelty” of it all has worn away. People still using this film are likely genuinely interested in instant film and not merely the “idea” of it. Having said this, this is where we are now with getting the Polaroid image back into pop culture. We kinda, sorta, more or less have it, but not quite. The images are just not we used to know as a “Polaroid photograph”. In their defense, the team at Impossible tells me that Holland (where their factory is located) has restricted the use of many chemicals on environmental grounds. This is great for the environment, but poor for the film quality. Yet, at least they are trying to get things going again and still remain environmentally friendly. Fujifilm Instax film on the other hand is likely using much more harmful chemicals to achieve their superior results. This is all worth noting, as is the general observation that analog film, in general terms, is not all that congruent with environmental movements.

In the end, I have to say there is indeed something magical about using a Polaroid camera, about the SX-70 especially. The decisive clunk of the shutter button, the whirl of the gears and the spitting out of a real piece of photographic history. It’s all very exciting. The disappointment comes in terms of the quality of the image. The film just doesn’t resolve enough detail to really be useful for serious photography and, at just over $ 3 a shot, it’s an expensive hobby. Despite this, The Impossible Project says they sold over 1 million packs of film last year and things are on the rise. They also tell me that there is a new generation of film being beta tested as I write this post. That’s exciting because I would really like to see the Impossible become, well, more possible. The very real and wonderful people behind this project are trying to do a good thing for photography, but they may have a steep hill yet to climb. Regardless, I’m not giving up on the SX-70 or The Impossible Project just yet.

2015-07-22-1437579006-6040604-Polaroid7.jpeg

Bottom Line: I can wholeheartedly recommend Impossible film for personal fun and/or experimental use, but cannot recommend it (at this time) for anything serious or professional. It’s a mixed bag verdict.

All Well Yet

All Well Yet


Over 40 letters, written between 1915 1918 from both France and Italy, reproduced as they were written, from the hell of the trenches to tucking into a delightful, although unexpected meal on Christmas Day these are some of the most colourful, graphic and moving accounts of a soldier’s life during World War 1.All Well YetIt is impossible to describe the no mans land’, it’s the greyness of it, the actual want of colour, the endless succession of holes and mounds, shattered timbers sticking up from mud, endless abandoned trenches, rows of trees halved, or stripped into poles, the extraordinary amount of abandoned equipment bombs, rifles, clothing, and the dead amongst it all, quiet, not repulsive, fitting into the drab scene, sometimes German sometimes English. In twos or threes as they were killed, or one by himself, lonely even in this lonely place. The pools of water in the shell holes are green or red, and over the endless stumps and twisted broken wires rises the sour smell of battlefield. The Lewis guns having the time of their lives, and crying, their voices lost in the din of the shells and the savage yells of our men half mad with blood over the ruins of house and orchard, a machine gun, manned to the last, holds up the line, the bombers swing round it, rifle grenades add to the din and it stops. Then the objective, furious digging, rushing up and down, stores up, guns in position, and then comparative quiet. When the smoke clears away, the bright sunlight reveals every sordid detail of a mechanical war. Stores lie in every direction, everything broken, and every here and there a man, twisted into dreadful attitudes, but with quiet faces they lie where they fell, the dust veiling the wounds, finished with it all. All Well Yet’ – compiled by Timothy James Brown(Grandson of William Neilson Brown)

8 Movie Scores We’ll Still Listen To In 2015

For people who love movie scores — these are real people, we assure you — last year was a peak time. From Steven Price’s Oscar-winning “Gravity” score to smaller ones from Joel P. West (“Short Term 12”) and Graham Reynolds (“Before Midnight”), 2013’s movie scores had a cue for every mood.

Not so this year. The most memorable moments in “Wild,” “Boyhood,” “Whiplash,” “Obvious Child,” “Selma,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The LEGO Movie,” “The Interview” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1,” to name a few, came accompanied with either an existing track or original song (everything is awesome, you crazy “LEGO Movie”). Which is great for people who also love movie soundtracks — guilty! — but less so for score fans. Sure, Antonio Sanchez’s “Birdman” score is fantastic within the framework of the film, but would anyone want to listen to it during a random Tuesday commute?

With that in mind, here are the eight movie scores released this year that profile as having longevity — aka each will have a permanent home on our HuffPost Entertainment Spotify playlist of movie scores.

Alexandre Desplat, “Godzilla”

No one had a better year than Alexandre Desplat, who wrote three of the year’s most memorable scores (and also the ones for “The Monuments Men” and “Unbroken”). His “Godzilla” theme was so damn loud that even the title has an exclamation mark. Let them fight.

Alexandre Desplat, “The Imitation Game”

Desplat’s score for “The Imitation Game” isn’t necessarily deep, but the main theme is as Oscar-friendly as the film itself. It’s the type of track you’d expect to hear play as Benedict Cumberbatch walks up to accept his Academy Award.

Alexandre Desplat, “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

There’s that news van again. Desplat’s score for Wes Anderson’s latest film is gave millennials their very own “Third Man” theme.

Hans Zimmer, “Interstellar”

Hans Zimmer’s “Interstellar” score was no “Inception” (or even “Rush” or “Man of Steel”), but it was haunting and big. If we ever fall into a wormhole, this is what we’ll be thinking about.

Johann Johannsson, “The Theory of Everything”

Similar to “The Imitation Game,” Johann Johannsson’s score for “The Theory of Everything” feels expressly written to win Oscars. But who cares when the theme is as beautiful as this?

Alex Ebert, “A Most Violent Year”

Alex Ebert, he of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros fame, wrote 1981’s best John Carpenter score.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, “Gone Girl”

The year’s best onscreen moment? We’ll take the Cool Girl montage in “Gone Girl” over many other worthy contenders for one reason alone: this above track, written by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Jonny Greenwood, “Inherent Vice”

Working with Paul Thomas Anderson again after “There Will Be Blood” and “The Master,” Jonny Greenwood’s noir-y “Inherent Vice” score sounds like something Bernard Herrmann would like. But then it’s also beautiful and wistful. The above track, “Amethyst,” which plays during the film’s sweetest scene, being a prime example of its power.

BONUS: Nick Thorburn, “Serial”

It wasn’t a movie, but in addition to being one of the year’s most satisfying stories, “Serial” had the most infectious theme. Sorry, Desplat.

Lovingkindness For Yourself as Well

“I do not trust people who don’t love themselves and yet tell me, ‘I love you.’ There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.”

Maya Angelou

In classical Buddhist teaching, the practice of lovingkindness begins with extending love and compassion to yourself. With an idea of spirituality as self-denial, self-judgment or even self mortification — this seems awfully strange. It certainly seemed strange to me.

I went to Burma in 1985 to do an extended retreat in lovingkindness meditation, a practice specifically designed to open our heart and strengthen our sense of connection to all of life. It is a meditation practice that enables us to dissolve the rigid sense of “self” and “other” and “us” and “them” that can keep us feeling so isolated, so cut off, and so afraid. Another way of saying lovingkindness is friendship; the practice is one of cultivating friendship towards yourself and ultimately all beings everywhere.

I knew the classical unfolding of the practice: after lovingkindness towards yourself you offer lovingkindness to someone who has helped you, or a benefactor, then a friend, a neutral person and a difficult person. The difficult person is the doorway to lovingkindness for all beings.

Each part of that structure made some sense to me, though I knew different parts would likely be challenging or unappealing. It was lovingkindness for myself that seemed more like a pro-forma ritual to be gotten through quickly. Hah!

The invitation in this meditation practice isn’t to be narcissistic or self centered, which we can and certainly often do manage without the time and effort of meditation. Rather, it is building and renewing the reservoir of feeling whole within, feeling complete, so that we can offer and give and serve without feeling depleted, overcome or burned out.

The goal is also not to undertake lovingkindness for yourself as some kind of strategic project, refusing to consider others before you “finish” having lovingkindness for yourself. There are many people who care for others in a disproportionate way, leaving themselves out. The goal here is a kind of balance. As we explore this balance, we are also exploring skills of resilience.

It’s not just that we need to be careful of naked people offering us their shirts because we will be disappointed. Those naked people will often be wanting to do the generous, caring thing, but find themselves despairing because they know they just don’t have what it takes to make a sustained effort to make a difference. There is hollowness on both sides, giving and receiving.

In Burma I started my three-month retreat with the reflection, right from the Buddha’s teaching, “All beings want to be happy.” The idea is that our urge for happiness isn’t a problem, something to feel squeamish about, or to confuse with greed. Our basic problem is ignorance about where true happiness is to be found. It is because of this ignorance that we engage in actions that can cause so much pain for ourselves and for others. But the wish for happiness in itself is rightful, appropriate. When it can be combined with wisdom instead of with ignorance, that wish becomes like a homing instinct for freedom. We can cut through many obstacles, overcome many fears when we realize it’s alright to want to be happy.

And just as we ourselves want to be happy, all beings want to be happy. We all want a sense of belonging, a feeling of being a part of something greater than our limited sense of self, a home in this body, in this mind, in this life. We all want to be happy. In a way, we all deserve to be happy. That includes you. And as I came to learn, that includes me.

The Sexiest Lithuanian Yogi Bride And Groom We’ll Feature Today

Hang on. Lina and Mindaugas had such a sexily gorgeous wedding in Kaunas, Lithuania, that I’m still fanning myself. The couple own a yoga studio together, so let’s start with how hot that is. Then let’s examine the bad-assery of getting matching wedding-ring tattoos. Next, let’s take into consideration how stunning the two-part ceremony was: Lina and Mindaugas exchanged vows both outdoors at the confluence of the Nemunas and Neris rivers and inside a Gothic church. St. George’s Church is still undergoing restoration (building is OLD, y’all), but you’d never be able to tell from these airy, light-filled photos.

Surrealism Is Alive And Well In Roberto Gil de Montes’ Dreamy Depictions

Roberto Gil de Montes’ paintings exist in a hazy terrain somewhere between Mexico and Los Angeles, art history and folklore, a memory and a dream.

His works are tapestries of life as it exists around us and as it lives in our minds, weaved together into two-dimensional fields. His colors are as buttery and sharp as morning, rendered with the soft edges of a legend partly forgotten. “Hecho en México,” a new series of neo-surrealist artworks, are the perfect antidote to gallery trends and their clever emptiness.

turle

“I paint as a way of discovering stories hidden within myself, peeling away layers, digging deeper each time, revealing images of forgotten stories,” Gil de Montes says in the gallery statement. Gazing upon his artworks feels like traveling through time, unearthing Pre-Columbian symbols and painted allusions without a singular guide to navigate the journey.

Rather than merely depicting the world, Gil de Montes invites viewers to physically experience it,” the L.A. Times wrote in 1996. “His painting’s stark, jarring contrasts and highly animated patterns stimulate your retinas, causing your body to respond well before your brain has a chance to intervene.”

In his works you’ll recognize reincarnations of Paul Gauguin’s “Spirit of the Dead Watching” and Henri Rousseau’s “The Sleeping Gypsy.” Yet scroll further and you’ll see a delicate rendering of a shirtless selfie of two men entitled “Facebook Photo.” Despite the thematic leap from mythical badlands to social media uploads, the sense of mystical possibility lingers. The electric potential lies in every colored mark, each one drawing the viewer deeper into a vibrant land where enchanted tigers and computer screens can coexist.

“Hecho en México” runs from April 5 until May 10 at Lora Schlesinger Gallery in Los Angeles. See a preview of the work below.

This couple certainly is. A redditor posted this photo Monday with the caption, “My parents got each other the same Valentine’s Day card by accident.”

The long-married spouses were 240 miles apart at the time the cards were bought, the Redditor explained, so they didn’t buy them at the same store.
