Peter Pilotto and Boss to Show at Milan Fashion Week

MILAN — Just ahead of the summer holidays earmarked for most of the Italian fashion crowd, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana today released the first official draft of its Milan Fashion Week schedule, running Sept. 17 to 23.

Peter Millar Creates Beach Cruiser for Timbers Kiawah Development

Peter Millar fans can now tool around on the brand’s custom designed beach cruisers the next time they visit Kiawah Island in South Carolina — and help support the island’s community of sea turtles at the same time.
The men’s lifestyle brand has partnered with Timbers Kiawah — Ocean Club & Residences, a new development on the island, to create a limited-edition bicycle available to all residents of the oceanfront community as well as to the general public. The Peter Millar bikes feature a custom design that incorporates myriad brightly colored sea turtles.
All proceeds from the sale of the bikes will be donated to the Town of Kiawah’s Turtle Patrol program, which works to protect the island’s threatened loggerhead sea turtles.
“We wanted the turtle print to evoke a true seaside feeling and be a reflection on a gentleman’s leisure time,” said Scott Mahoney, chairman and chief executive officer of Peter Millar. “We’re excited to finally see our new print come to life and for such a good cause.”
Bike culture is a key part of the lifestyle on Kiawah Island, and Timbers Kiawah offers exclusive access to the 30 miles of bike paths and hard-packed sand on the 10-mile beach.

Peter Pilotto, Christopher De Vos Cozy Up to Homeware at Matches

TABLE TALK: It’s fair to say designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos take a holistic view of design: The Italian company that makes their bed linen, Once Milano, now makes the napkins and tablecloths for their burgeoning homeware line, while Swarovski, a longtime Peter Pilotto collaborator, has created bejeweled candelabras, and 1882 Ltd., the ceramics brand from the north of England has created the dishes.
On Wednesday night, the two designers debuted the latest additions to their evolving lifestyle collection with homeware products that will be sold exclusively on Matchesfashion.com. Matches cleared out the ground floor space of its Carlos Place town house in London and set an extra-long table for the night’s host Amy Astley, editor in chief of Architectural Digest, and guests including Arizona Muse, Allegra Hicks, Martina Mondadori and Michelle and Rachel Yeoh.
The table was draped in faded, color-blocked linen cloths, plates with swirling patterns and rustic water jugs. Napkins were plain or edged with little fringes, while cutlery was drawn from Sohdu Wasabi. The whole evening had been dreamed up by the designers, including the lush, colored blooms by Fjura that tumbled from fishbowl style vases and the food, from their favorite London restaurant, Black Axe Mangal.

Busy Philipps, Irene Neuwirth and Peter Pilotto Celebrate Capitol L.A. Opening

“Forget Coachella — Ren Faire, that’s the only way I want to dress. Mark my words, it’s the next thing,” said Busy Philipps, nodding approvingly at Capitol boutique founder Laura Vinroot Poole dressed like a fair maiden in a Peter Pilotto square-neck liquid organza gown, a blonde braid wrapped around her head.
Philipps took time off her late-night talk show “Busy Tonight” to join Poole and L.A. jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth to celebrate their newest venture — the opening of an outpost of the Charlotte, N.C.-based Capitol boutique at the Brentwood Country Mart. The Peter Pilotto designers came over to L.A. to join the festivities, hosting a pre-dinner trunk show at the store, which has a shop-in-shop full of Neuwirth’s nature-inspired fine jewelry.

Hussein Chalayan, Peter Saville Accuse Fashion Corporates of Crushing Creativity

LONDON — How is technology impacting creativity, and what does it really take to disrupt an industry that’s reaching saturation point?
Frieze Academy brought together a series of creatives — ranging from Kim Jones and Hussein Chalayan, to graphics expert Peter Saville and sound designer Michel Gaubert — to argue those questions in a series of talks held at the Royal Academy of Arts on Friday.
Chalayan, one of the first designers to incorporate technology into his work and present moving garments in his famous “Geotropics” collection in 1999, said technology’s impact on the arts hasn’t necessarily been a good thing.
He described wearables as “tacky” and highlighted the growing interest of handcrafted techniques: “It’s such a cliché to be chasing 3-D printing now. I liked it at the beginning, but not anymore, it no longer feels expensive somehow,” Chalayan said.
He also touched on the influence of the Internet and social media, talking about the “sense of entitlement,” that the easy access to data has created in younger generations.
“Are you really learning by Googling something?” he said, adding that social media and the rise of fashion conglomerates have both dampened creativity. Chalayan said  there is less room today to speak up, take risks and

Peter Hunsinger’s Latest Chapter: Socks Sized Like Shoes

Peter Hunsinger learned a lot about fashion during his three-plus decades working for Condé Nast. And now he’s putting that knowledge to work for himself.
Hunsinger, who left the magazine company in 2017 after 36 years at GQ, Vanity Fair, Architectural Digest, Gourmet, Golf Digest and more, is now going into the sock business.
He teamed with Tom Kallish of Tommie Copper to create Kane 11, a direct-to-consumer business that will provide a unique take on socks: The assortment will be sold in individual shoe sizes rather than in the range offered by other brands. Hunsinger said the company has applied for a provisional patent for the sizing model.
“There are two things I learned during my time at GQ working with Jim Nelson and Jim Moore,” Hunsinger said. “Guys really put an emphasis on fit and personal style. And there’s a revolution in men’s fit in the direct-to-consumer business with brands such as Proper Cloth, Untuckit and Bonobos.”
Add to that, guys’ propensity to buy more online and Hunsinger saw an opportunity.
“Nobody that we know of has made socks in individual sizes,” he said. Rather, they’re sized 9-12, small, medium, large or one size fits all, he said. So he and Kallish found

Peter Dinklage Helped Jamie Dornan Run Lines for Fifty Shades Freed: ‘I Nailed It’

Peter Dinklage is here to help out a friend in need.

The Game of Thrones actor stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Wednesday, when he recalled helping out his friend Jamie Dornan prepare to film some reshoots for his final turn as Christian Grey in  Fifty Shades Freed.

While costarring in the film My Dinner With Hervé together, Dinklage and Dornan ran lines from the famously steamy movie.

“I read some of the screenplay, though, in our dressing room,” said Dinklage, 49. “I went in, he had to do some reshoots for Fifty Shades and I would help him out learning lines.”

Naturally, Dinklage took on the role of Anastasia Steele, while Dornan read his lines as Christian.

“I would read the Dakota Johnson parts,” he said. “I was just helping a friend learn lines. I nailed it. I really did.”

And when host Stephen Colbert compared the Game of Thrones fans to Fifty Shades fans, Dinklage pointed out one major difference.

“Very different fans,” Dinklage said. “I think Game of Thrones fans would take issue with comparing the two because Game of Thrones fans are very specific and lovely. Fifty Shades fans have issues. It’s all suppressed issues, I think.”

“It was a crazy night in Belfast, and he’s from Belfast,” he said. “So that was fun. It was a great wrap party.”

Peter Marino, Art Patron of Southampton

In the days leading up to the opening of “Counterpoint: Selections From the Peter Marino Collection” at the Southampton Arts Center, the architect known for designing luxurious flagships for global fashion brands made a cryptic reference about a gift he planned to bestow on the summer enclave. At Thursday’s opening reception, Marino came clean, and revealed he’d established the Peter Marino Art Foundation.
The architect bought 11 Jobs Lane, a two-story, nearly 8,000-square-foot building adjacent to the arts center. Designed in 1895 by R.H. Robertson, it opened to the public the following year as the Rogers Memorial Library. Marino, whose architectural practice incorporates art, including site-specific commissions into retail spaces, plans to restore the building with construction starting in September 2019.
The foundation will feature a permanent public exhibition of artworks from Marino’s collection. “I’ll show old stuff and new stuff,” he said. “The foundation will become what should be happening in cities everywhere. It will be a place for cultural and community activities. 
“For the moment, the foundation is a full-time commitment,” Marino said. “Can I say I would never do something with [an] institution in the city? I’m going to focus on this and put all my efforts into making this a

Peter Marino Receives French Honor in New York

Peter Marino swapped his trademark biker leathers for wool — above the waist, at least — at a ceremony Monday night at the cultural arm of the French Embassy in New York.
That smoothed the pinning on his chest of the medal for his latest honor: Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters.
“Do you recognize it? You made it for me 15 years ago,” Marino explained to LVMH Fashion Group honcho Sidney Toledano, as he stroked the covered placket of the cropped style, in black to match his leather pants and high police boots. Toledano had presided over Dior and Dior Homme when its ateliers turned out the sharp-shouldered garment.
Toledano and Chanel’s Alain Wertheimer were among French luxury executives — marquee clients of the acclaimed American architect — who turned out for the event.
Marino’s retail projects also include gleaming flagships for Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Ermenegildo Zegna and others — though his initial claim to fame was the Madison Avenue flagship of Barneys New York back in 1985.
“And Barneys was clearly blown away with your work because they hired you to design 17 more of their department stores,” Bénédicte de Montlaur, cultural counselor of the French Embassy, told a small crowd

Krystal Had Hoped Peter Kraus Would Be The Bachelor — and Hints That’s She’s Headed to Paradise

Ahead of Women Tell All, here’s  Krystal Tells All?

The Bachelor contestant – whom many dubbed this year’s “villain” – Krystal Nielson spilled on what was really happening on Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s season with reality-obsessed producers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show after getting the boot during an infamous 2-on-1 date.

Turns out that like Bekah Martinez, Nielson appeared on the show hoping Peter Kraus, the fan favorite who made it to the final two on Rachel Lindsay‘s Bachelorette season, would be the guy handing out roses.

“You know, I was really pleasantly surprised,” the 30-year-old fitness coach said about Luyendyk Jr.. “I was really hoping it was going to be Peter. I wanted to give him a fair shot.”

She added, “Arie’s so different in a group setting versus one on one. In a group, he’s awkward and a little goofy and uncomfortable in a group setting. One on one, Arie’s completely different. He’s there for you. He’s very present.”

The reality star also addressed her breakdown after a group bowling date, when Luyendyk made a last-minute decision to bring all the women to the evening portion of the date despite previously saying that only the winning team of a bowling competition would have more time with him.

“The thing at the bowling alley was just my tipping point,” Nielson explained. “I’d been putting so much effort into him, and there was so much s– in the house and I was just there for Arie. When he changed his mind, some people think that’s an overreaction. I only had his word. I was pretty much done. I packed my bags that night.”

RELATED VIDEO: The Bachelor‘s Arie Luyendyk Jr. Says He Fell for Two Women on the Show: “I Didn’t Know I Was Capable of That”

Nielson added that she wasn’t the only woman upset by the sudden change but said no one publicly had her back.

She also said she wasn’t able to address comments she made on the bus ride back to the hotel after the date, which was spoken about by the cast but not caught on camera. However, she hinted that “it was a big f–ing deal.”

Nielson said that she felt “misunderstood” during filming but didn’t know that she would be portrayed so negatively when the show aired.

“It’s such an interesting dynamic that was really hard for me to navigate through because I’m there for Arie – I gave up so much of my life for this guy and this relationship, and that’s where my focus is,” she said. “It’s not summer camp, braiding hair and making girlfriends. That’s not what I signed up for. So that really separated me instantly.”

But have we seen the last of Nielson?

Although she wouldn’t confirm that she’s been tapped to appear on Bachelor in Paradise, she definitely didn’t deny it – and she had an idea of who she’d be looking for on the beach.

“It would have to be someone who definitely works for themselves. Entrepreneurial. Definitely health and fitness. And has to be a dog person,” Nielson said, immediately causing co-executive producer Corey Palent to respond, “That’s Peter!”

Peter Millar Acquires Mossimo Giannulli’s G/Fore

Peter Millar and G/Fore are joining forces, again.
The relationship began in 2017 when the Raleigh, N.C.-based Peter Millar worked with G/Fore, which was founded by Mossimo Giannulli, on a cobranded golf shoe for the 2017 PGA Show. From there, Giannulli and Scott Mahoney, chief executive officer of Peter Millar, spoke about other ways they would work together. This led to Peter Millar, which is owned by Richemont, acquiring G/Fore.
“Moss has the rare combination of experience, design vision and name recognition that will enable us to take this brand worldwide,” Mahoney said. “We believe there is unlimited potential for G/Fore, and couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Moss and his team to the Peter Millar family.”
Giannulli, who is best known for starting the Mossimo brand in 1986, introduced G/Fore in 2013. His goal was to develop the brand into a lifestyle collection influenced by golf. It started with a collection of premium golf gloves and has since expanded to include golf shoes, accessories and men’s and women’s apparel. The line targets a fashion-conscious customer who enjoys golf-inspired products.
“I love the game of golf, and as a designer it was obvious that the timing was perfect for a lifestyle brand that was

Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos Launch a Townhouse Concept Store

FRIENDLY TAKEOVER: Best known for their artsy approach to fashion, design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos have taken over a three-story townhouse in South Kensington, as part of the Brompton Design District partnership with brands, which runs within the London Design Festival.
The duo set up a art and design space, filled with quirky pieces from their friends, who happen to be artists, as well. The objects are exclusive collaborations, all available for purchase, and are shown alongside the brand’s ready-to-wear collections, including spring-summer 2018, which debuted on Sunday and will be available for pre-order.
This is a premier of sorts for the brand, which doesn’t have its own brick-and-mortar.
“Yes, this is a suggestion of what [our store] might look like, but we are actually excited by the idea that this is temporary and that it gives a sense of ‘see it now or you might miss something,’” explained Pilotto at the opening on Sunday. Added De Vos: “We really don’t like the word pop-up, but we’ve been using it because this is a five-week-stunt, and it is a concept that works for us.

Peter Jensen RTW Spring 2018

Peter Jensen picked up where he left off last season, taking his cue from the late American actress Sandy Dennis’ style.
“She’s really chic,” said Jensen. “When you see the films, she stands out as being very chic and modern even though they’re old films of the Sixties and Seventies.”
His playfully quirky range echoed the eccentric charm of the “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” star. Jensen harked back to the Sixties and early Seventies silhouettes with his colorful collection that was filled with feminine dresses and pared-back separates with whimsical prints.
Jensen experimented with treatments such as an over-dyed and over-washed calico – which he called an underrated fabric – for a roomy shift dress in lilac or a cool black boiler suit.
An image of Dennis’ hands was translated into a graphic print that appeared on a ladylike sleeveless dress with a rounded cutout at the back. The designer also referenced his muse’s love of felines – Dennis once owned 37 cats – with a hand-drawn cat print on a three–quarter sleeve, knee–length dress and skirt.
Sixties references came on color-block shift dresses, sweatshirts and a skirt that was paired with a boldly-hued, slightly oversized knit sweater. Elsewhere, the designer’s signature bunny motif

Not So Fast! Does Peter Kraus Have a Chance at The Bachelor After All?

Is Peter Kraus getting another chance at love on the small screen?

Rumors that the 31-year-old Wisconsin native is set to be the next star of The Bachelor have been heating up all week, largely due to a series of tweets from franchise creator Mike Fleiss teasing a “shocking” announcement about the show.

Indeed, Kraus’ casting would come as a surprise, as Fleiss had previously made it clear that they wouldn’t pick someone to be the Bachelor if they weren’t ready to propose. Kraus, who made it to the final two on Rachel Lindsay‘s recent season of The Bachelorettefiercely resisted the reality show’s tradition of proposing to the leading lady after a whirlwind courtship. After a final heart-wrenching conversation with Lindsay in which he acknowledged that asking her to marry him would be a compromise of his core values, they decided to part ways.

“Do we really want a Bachelor who isn’t ready to settle down with a woman he loves?” Fleiss tweeted mid-August. “Hmmm. Not what #thebachelor is all about.”

At the time, a source told PEOPLE that Fleiss’ tweet was absolutely aimed at Kraus.

“Peter is every Bachelor producer’s worst nightmare: the perfect guy who cannot be coerced into proposing at the end,” said the insider. “The fact that no one could talk Peter into buckling under and just giving her the ring — and that he wouldn’t play along — absolutely enraged the higher-ups at the show. Including Fleiss, definitely. He is totally on their s— list forever.”

“Even if they weren’t so mad, his unwillingness to play by the rules of the game has them afraid he’d be another Brad Womack or, worse, Juan Pablo ,” added the source.

After Fleiss’ initial subtweet about Kraus, longtime host Chris Harrison told PEOPLE that it seemed like the personal trainer was “still working through some things.”

“I think his time with Rachel exposed some things in his life that he probably has to deal with and needs to handle before he’s ready to settle down,” said Harrison. “In no way does that make him a bad guy or not worthy. He may make a great Bachelor. It’s not like it’s completely off the table. But after seeing him be with Rachel, it didn’t give you that glowing feeling of, Hey, this guy is ready for another chance at love. It would be really hard to spin that.”

Lindsay, who is now engaged to finalist Bryan Abasolo, has also been outspoken about her frustrations with Kraus.

“With Peter, I constantly got this push and this pull,” the 32-year-old attorney previously told PEOPLE. “What I hate so much is that it seems like the reason that Peter wasn’t the one for me is due to the proposal, and I think that it became such a big issue because that’s what happens at the end of this, but there were other deep-rooted issues in my relationship with him.”

FROM PEN: Why Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay Didn’t Choose Peter Kraus

 

However, despite the odds being initially stacked against Kraus, Fleiss’ recent tweets sing a different tune. It appears that Bachelor execs have likely changed their minds about Kraus landing the role — perhaps due to the fact that no other front-runners have emerged. (Robby Hayes and Dean Unglert, two prominent names from the franchise who had been thrown into the mix, appear to be out of the running due to antics unfolding on the current season of Bachelor in Paradise.)

“Hoping to make unbelievably shocking announcement today regarding #thebachelor,” Fleiss tweeted on Thursday. “Waiting for final approval…”

While fans are still waiting with bated breath for the official confirmation, at the end of the day, Bachelor Nation is largely in agreement that Kraus is the strongest candidate.

“Peter is a very good man, a great guy,” Harrison told PEOPLE earlier this month. “It’s always hard to talk about who would be a good Bachelor/Bachelorette because then everybody goes off and takes that as, ‘Oh Harrison doesn’t like him.’ That has nothing to do with it.”

“They’re all good people,” he added. “It’s about choosing someone who will make a good Bachelor, good television and who we think is sincerely ready for this moment — ready to be the Bachelor, ready to settle down.”

For resort, Jensen harked back to the Sixties and early Seventies and took cues from actress Sandy Dennis’ sophisticated style.
Jensen, who admired the charisma of the “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” star, focused on pared-back silhouettes and worked relaxed shapes into his fun range filled with ladylike pieces with a twist.
The designer said for him, resort is a time when he listens to his customers and considers fabrics, shapes and styles and said his woman is clever lady who is a very secure female that combines her career with fun.
“Commercial is not a bad thing,” said Jensen. “What I find important with the resort collection is that you listen to your customers. We want people to wear it. With resort it can give you a bit more. With the mainline, you can play around and make it more image-building.”
Jensen continued to focus on his brand’s bestsellers such as dresses and shirting this season.
There were classic A-line structured shift dresses done in an embroidered floral fabric laid over an organza. He played with details and placed a twisted bow on pockets.

Hudson Jeans’ Peter Kim Hits Japan

The responsibility of leading a company as chief executive officer hasn’t stopped Peter Kim from exploring the world on his own terms.
The task of starting and steering Hudson Jeans in the competitive premium denim market probably has led the Los Angeles native to seek more adrenaline-inducing adventures. After all, this is a Gen Xer who reminds followers on his Instagram page to “hold your head high, and your middle finger higher.” And his company’s hashtag of choice is #HudsonUnfiltered (“Denim is the canvas to share your message. No bullsh-t.”)
Earlier this month, before volunteering to hand out hygiene kits, blankets and toys to the homeless on L.A.’s Skid Row, Kim jetted off to Japan to check out hot rods and noodles. He’s familiar with getting on and off airplanes. In a quest to end human sex trafficking, he parachuted out of a plane earlier this year with Together1heart, raising over $ 221,000 and reaching almost 93 million people via social media.

In Japan, however, his R&R involved visiting Mooneyes’ 25th annual hot rod custom show in Yokohama. Some of the wheels resembled trick bikes for flower-loving geisha.

“Just because we’re going through a divorce  mean I don’t care what happens to you,” she tells her ex, 56. “You’ve been my friend for eight years. You’ve been that person that I call.”

Like she had revealed to her lawyer previously, Bailey tells Thomas she wants their marriage to end peacefully.

“People say when you get divorced you can’t be friends and it’s going to be all this nasty stuff, like we’re gonna hate each other. And I don’t hate you. I don’t want to hate you,” she says. “I still want to be friends with you.”

Bailey even mentions her 17-year-old daughter Noelle Robinson, telling Thomas, “ still want you to have a relationship with Noelle — she’s know you since you were 8 years old. You’ve been like a second dad to her.”

“I love you, I respect you. I just can’t be married to you — that’s it,” she confesses.

She brings up a conversation the two had in their early days of dating. “When I first met you, we had that conversation about if we’re ever not happy, are you the kind of person to just settle to just be in something?” she said. “And you told me no.”

It’s a conversation that appears to give Thomas the motivation to move forward. “I do want to see you happy,” he tells her — before calling her lawyer, Daniel Meachum, and agreeing to sign off off on whatever he sends.

Kunsthal Rotterdam Sets Peter Lindbergh Retrospective

LONG SHOT: The Kunsthal Rotterdam is launching a major retrospective dedicated to Peter Lindbergh in September 2016.
“A Different History of Fashion,” curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot (the model-turned-curator behind the Jean Paul Gaultier retrospective), will present images of the German fashion photographer through the eyes of 25 fashion designers including Azzedine Alaïa, Gaultier, Giorgio Armani and Rei Kawakubo with their respective commentaries on Lindbergh’s snapshots and pieces from their collections.
In addition to the 250 photographs and the designers’ creations display, the exhibit will showcase unseen materials including Polaroids, storyboards, sets and behind-the-scenes films with Lindbergh’s muses Kate Moss and Mariacarla Boscono (Lindbergh gave the museum access to his personal archives).
Plus, there will be video interviews with collaborators including Nicole Kidman, Cindy Crawford and Lara Stone.
“His natural images — often in black-and-white — stand out among the excessive overretouching found now in other photographers’ work,” Kunsthal director Emily Ansenk stated.
“The poetic storytelling of his work is about reality, honesty, but also about the personality of the subjects he photographs, something many can relate to,” the Dutch contemporary museum director added.
The exhibit is set to run from Sept. 10, 2016, until Feb. 12, 2017, and tour internationally from 2017 on.

Som said he found inspiration from the leading ladies of film noir (“mysterious smoky lounges and cinematic lighting” per the company’s release). That vibe came together in fuzzy, slightly out-of-focus blossoms that hit fall’s big trend of moody florals. And, FYI, if you’re a Cancer you’ll want to pay special attention—this is the fall ’15 trend best for your astro sign.

Peter Rock Star from Galilee: A Guided Bible Study for Teens and Adults

Peter Rock Star from Galilee: A Guided Bible Study for Teens and Adults


If the New Testament were a Broadway musical, Peter would be one of the stars. He lived life loud, while making his best effort to be one great disciple. Peter was like a modern day rock star, but his struggles were just like ours. If Jesus could shape Peter into a solid rock of a disciple, he can surely do the same for you. From his first call to follow, Peter was acutely aware of his own sinfulness. He wanted Jesus to go away, but ended up following. What makes people push Jesus away today? What makes them decide to follow? These are the kinds of “chew on this” questions you’ll find in Week One of Peter: Rock Star from Galilee. Music always speaks to a deep place in the heart. With the playlists in each chapter, you can let the study themes sink in. The ups and downs of Peter’s life story will come alive as you listen to the music of Tenth Avenue North and other artists. To better understand the feelings Peter had after denying Jesus three times, listen to Josh Wilson’s “Before the Morning.” Feel the love Christ had for all people even on the cross by listening to “Amazing Love” by Chris Tomlin. By the end of the eight-week study, you will create your own playlist of at least eight songs to bring back all you learned about Peter. The digital edition includes links to helpful websites and scripture apps. All you need for an eight week study is included: interactive questions for personal study and “chew on this” questions for small group discussion; photographs, maps, and informative sidebars for historical and geographical context; hands-on mission activities and discipleship challenges.

The Love Story Of Peter Pan And Tinker Bell, As Told By Peter

“Second star to the right!” She called out, laughing.

Her voice carried easily over the autumn wind as we flew above the confusion of lost boys, giggling girls, and parents trying desperately to remember. We were not flying very high, but the lights and people seemed so small and far away that, for the moment at least, the world below us looked like a miniature toy carnival.

“Second star to the right! That’s what it feels like!” She said, and she took my hand in hers, kicking her feet in the air as if running and, throwing her head back, laughing. The wind turned her long hair into a ribbon of fiery gossamer, trailing out behind us.

“No hand holding.” Said the bored voice over the speakers and she dropped my hand with a petulant huff that carried frustration layered with a relief at the easy excuse to let go.

It’s coming soon, I thought sadly. Our reason for being here. Our Goodbye.

Moments later, we slowed, seats gently rocking into one another with creaks and groans as the great spider of machinery lowered its chain web of swings back to earth.

“That is the only ride I want to go on!” She said, jumping out of her seat and launching at me in a fiercely quick hug. She was as exhilarated as I was anxious.

“Let’s go explore,” she said. Then she twirled around, waving me to follow before skipping off on her tippy toed wings into the confusion of cotton candy.

***

Tinker Bell came to me in the midwinter of my twenty seventh year.

I had left Neverland long ago by that time. My life was one of goals and deadlines, of power and responsibility, of control over one’s own destiny. I had grown to see the mantra of “never grow up” for what it was: a cartoon fallacy. I walked away from childhood willingly, eagerly, and as happened so frequently in the stories of the aged, before I realized what I had left behind.

The eternal minutes of years cast my soul into a new body, one that was much larger and slow than my soul remembered. That body was led by a series of unfortunate events to a bleak hospital wing where it paced in the hallway like a madman. As I waited for Death to visit my family as it had when I was a child, I recognized it immediately as the worst and best night of my life. It was in that ward, on December 27th, when she appeared as if by magic, right when I needed her most. I remember the time as if the clock is still hovering in front of me bathed in a pall of blue light. It was 7:04 PM. On that exact day, at that exact time, I looked into the soft, brown eyes of the girl who would become my very deepest love.

When I first kissed her, when she finally- after what felt an eternity- floated into my arms, the rest of the world dimmed, its color draining away for the brightness that was this magical fairy. On that day, I forgot the foolish and false importance of wife, house, and job. I forgot the goals of adulthood- or that there was even such a concept as strange and foreign as “grown-up.”

On that day, I met my Tinker Bell, and she called me back to Neverland.

***

Screams descend from the rickety roller coaster and the caramel scent of kettle corn settles in my throat like a coating of pitch, think and cloying and making me feel as though I am suffocating on sugar. Tinker Bell floats before me, laughing in the rush of kids who call and shout to their friends. She acts for all the world as if this were the only place she was meant to be.

I want nothing more than to be away from this wretched madness. I want quiet. I want space so that I’m not shoved in the back by a dramatically gesticulating seven year old who will just die if he doesn’t get funnel cake. I want to be lying in the dark with Tinker Bell’s head on my chest, listening to her slow dreaming breath as I hold her, gently kiss her head, and try desperately to sleep for a few more minutes before the wine-dark dawn descends. I want to be anywhere but here. But more than that, I want to be with her. And here with her is better than anywhere without her.

So instead of my quiet darkness, we float together through the cacophony of blinking, candy apple lights as I try to draw breath through the thick air, try to smile, and try not to fear.

“What about the Ferris wheel?” I say, pouring as much syrupy happiness into the question as I can manage. “That’s kind of like the swings.”

She looks at me as if I’d just suggested that she eat a large and particularly purple sea creature.

“Ferris wheels are boring!” she groans, and just as I’m about to protest, her face makes its remarkable night-to-day change, radiating a smile that dims the lights around us.

“Let’s go see the animals!” she shrieks, grabbing my hand and skipping forward lightly, pulling me as if I’m a rag doll.

She’s always been able to pull me, magically casting me about like a toy despite her tiny size and my much greater weight, and age. She need only grab my hand and I could be lifted into the sky on her magical fairy dust laughter.

At least, that’s how it had been. Before. Lately, we flew less often. I weighed considerably more these days, and she cast me about considerably less.

But now I can feel her throwing me about, can feel the warmth of her hand in mine, pouring into my arm like sparkles, cascading down and up my spine to make my feet feel light and my hair stand on end.

The power of Tinker Bell’s touch.

I don’t want to let go of her hand. I want to squeeze it, clutch it. I want to pull her towards me and bury her in my arms, to close my eyes and breath the winter scent of her hair as I used to. But instead I look down at her hand holding mine and can see the awkwardness seeping into the corners of my vision like fire eating a picture. As soon as it had started, the moment passes, and she lets my hand fall away.

Such is life with Tinker Bell. Lifetimes of seconds, wrenched away from me as we float above the world. Together and ever growing apart.

The reek of cotton candy slowly gives way to the dark, earthy scent of straw and manure as the shouldering crowds are replaced with tiny shrieks and strollers creaking in mud ruts. Tinker Bell skips ahead with a laugh and I look at the hand she released, suddenly heavy with it’s great ring of guilt.

There is a woman wearing my guilt ring’s pair. A woman who is sitting at home doing something wonderfully mundane, like reading Jane Eyre for the 137th time, or cooking kale and lentil soup with the burner on high and way too much cumin. She is a woman connected to me by years of love and awkwardly unspoken distances. A woman humming a Lucy Kaplansky song to herself while her husband floats through a blinking, shrieking Neverland with his fairy girl.

I can feel the weight of this guilt pressing down on my shoulders and head like a wet, wool blanket, muggy in its damp, accusatory heat.

It is this weight, I think to myself, that makes me too heavy for Tinker Bell to cast about anymore. But even as I think it, I know it’s not true. It’s not my fear and guilt that is pulling her away. It is her.

She is changing.

As much as could be expected from a girl. And such is the price you pay when you fall so deeply in love with someone so young.

***

Despite my best efforts to be a better person, the sight of ducks and sheep makes me think of food.

“We could get something to eat,” I suggest, unsurprised at the slight crack in my voice that I’m pretty sure only I heard.

She speaks, and something about meat and gluten is lost in the sudden honking of a donkey who has had just quite enough pulling on that particular ear, thank you very much.

“Well,” I say, trying to make my voice into the epitome of an ironic joke, “you don’t want to ride, and you don’t want to eat. I’m not sure what we’re doing here.”

Despite my attempt at feigning humor, I sound how I feel: petulant and whiney. She rises from petting a white angora bunny and looks at me with eyes full of confusion and concern, and only very lightly sprinkled with hurt.

“I wanted to spend time with you.” She says. “Just with you.”

She tilts her head slightly in the way that has always announced a thought on the verge of a decision, then she smiles and brushes my lips with a quick and quiet kiss so tender that it feels like she is dressing a wound.

Maybe, I think, she is dressing a wound, a great wrenching wound of choices and betrayal. And my face flushes with embarrassment and that heavy weight of wet, hot guilt.

The truth is this: As much as I love my wife, her life would be forfeit for the life of my Tinker Bell. It hardly matters that she would likely say the same- she has the same conflicts and demons, the same choices. The thought of those choices fills me with warmth, and love, and wretched self-loathing.

Tinker Bell, oblivious, aware, giggling, flutters to the maligned donkey to stroke it gently, calming it in that way she has of calming everything she touches. She smiles and skips and laughs, flying from animal to animal as if breakfast never happened, as if the earthquake never shook her heart, as if her world didn’t come tumbling down around her over mustard and basil omelets and stupid-for-gods-sake-why-does-everything-have-to-be-called-heirloom tomato slices.

Unlike me, she is happy. She can be happy because she is young. Today is a goodbye, and this type of goodbye is easy for the young. In a sense, this type of goodbye is the entire purpose of being young, and it never catches the young by surprise.

It caught me by surprise, though. Springing out of no-where at breakfast- at least I saw it at breakfast. Looking back, it’s obvious now that it really started the moment I first laid eyes on her.

How long since I’ve felt the weight of her pressed down happily on my lap? How long since she carelessly threw her arms around my neck, knowing that if she lost her balance, I would catch her? How long since I had a stolen moment of her love in evening’s quiet darkness?

Yet this morning, as if the past were a mythical land where forgetting was sugar, she graced me with sweetness. This morning, she came to me and, tasting her careless love, I wept inside for its sudden bitter tinge.

It was on her tongue as well. Squirming uncomfortably on the lap she used to rest on so well. Telling jokes to laugh about instead of kissing my stubbled cheek. Sitting awkwardly, as if trying to finish a distasteful chore. She would never admit it, but she tasted the bitterness as strongly as I.

That moment on my lap, unlike countless moments before, was different. Something had changed- she had changed. From the dark closet of her young mind was pulled an invisible gown of realization that, once donned, could never be stripped from her. We both felt that garment on her, together, in that same, shimmering moment.

Suddenly, she bolted off of my lap, turning in a dramatic show to suggest that we “do something fun” and that we “spend time together.” Awkwardness darkening the scene like spilled ink.

***

And so we ended up here, Tinker Bell and her Peter, floating from the petting zoo back to the chaos of cotton candy, as I try to carry this weight of guilt and search for my happy thought that will keep me flying.

But I can’t find my happy thought because the only thought I have is that Tinker Bell is leaving me forever. The only thought I have is the knowledge that things are… different.

“Let’s go in the funhouse!” I say, less for an honest suggestion than as a dressing to staunch the flow of my tears.

“Ha!” She barks, throwing her head back. “There’s no way you’re getting me in there with you!”

I just begin the descent into the cavern of her insinuation when a voice calls out to her, using her birth name.

“Cecilia! Cecilia!”

Tinker Bell turns, smiling.

“Hi, Alexa!” She beams, and the two girls dive into a pool of conversation- about boys, and music, and Jenny McIntyre’s red suede pumps- as if they had been swimming together in the words for the past half hour.

Feeling as substantial as a ghost, I dissolve into the funhouse to join my brethren of forgotten specters. The irony of the dark cavern filled with crooked, rubber skeletons and scratchy speakers howling their silly groans and wails is actually soothing. I trudge through tight corridors lit in sickly green, barely aware of the fright that I am expected to feel, but growing ever more afraid as I come closer to the exit that will eject me back into the real world where things really are scary and confusing.

I pop out of the funhouse at the same time as two boys who squeeze roughly past on the staircase, weaving through the crowd like gazelles to bound off for another rapid adventure. When I reach the girls, who are still somewhere in the middle of a conversation in a foreign language, it becomes apparent that I was not missed.

“I can’t,” Tinker Bell says, nodding to me as if I had not just returned, “I’m here with my dad.”

“Hello, Alexa.” I say, and I note that I sound as strangely old and formal as every parent who’s ever talked with a child’s friend.

“Hi Mister C,” she says, turning back to her recruitment mission even before she hits “mister.” “Cecilia, you have to come! He asked about you!”

Tinker Bell groans and, for the first time, looks uncertain and afraid.

That, I think, is my cue. This is our goodbye.

“You should go, sweetie,” I choke.

It isn’t what I want to say. Even buried in the tomb-green lights of the funhouse, I wanted to come up with something more meaningful. I wanted to say something like: It’s all different now, you’re different. My lap is no longer your favorite seat. I can’t sleep holding my little girl as she breaths on my chest. I’m no longer your Peter Pan, my love, and it’s time for you to be another’s Tinker Bell. It’s different now, and even if you won’t admit it, I have to. That is my role, to tell you that it’s okay, that it’s time for you to fly away. But I want you to know, my sweet, magical pixie, that I will always be here for you, if ever your wings get tired.

I wanted to say this, to tell her of my love for her, to lift her in a hug and smell her hair one last time, but I’ve left Neverland. I’ve become a grown-up and grown-ups are cowards who hide their truths in platitudes, so I cover a sudden choking sob with a yawn and say:

“Go on, sweetie, go meet this charming prince of yours. I’m pretty tired anyway. Have fun and call us if you need a ride home.”

Delighted terror drifts down from the Ferris wheel as she looks at me, head tilted in lights that turn her hair into a copper flame that singes my heart.

“I love you daddy,” she whispers, throwing her arms around my neck and kissing my cheek quickly. I breath in her winter scent as she lets go and flies away on her tippy toed wings into the confusion of cotton candy.

She never turns back to see the tears fall to the cheeks of her aged Peter.

Educating Peter


Peter’s mum and dad are worried. Over the last twelve months they’ve noticed ferocious changes taking place in their son. It’s not just the mumbling and the cloud of melancholy that seems to hover permanently over his ever-more-militant mop of curly hair. It’s not even the oversized trousers or the numerous metal chains that hang off them. The problem is that Peter, who is fourteen, wants to be a musician – a rock star preferably, but anything else that involves a guitar, gets him bags of money and free CDs, and gives him access to unlimited scantily clad groupies will suffice (as long as it’s not classical). Uncoincidentally, ever since the advent of this new ambition, Peter’s grades at school have plummeted from very good to somewhere below mediocre. What is to be done? In the spirit of intellectual enquiry, Peter and music-critic, Tom Cox, set off in a Ford Focus on a journey to the dark heart of Britain’s musical heritage, to get the inside track on whether being a musician really is a sensible career choice for a teenager. They hunt the streets of Cambridge for former Pink Floyd frontman Syd Barrett and have numerous encounters with folkies in tights. They explore the wilder shores of prog rock and get up close and personal in a lift with Brian Wilson. Tom gives a masterclass in second-hand-record-shop etiquette and finds that Peter is something of a child prodigy. Most of all, they drive around, talk about stuff and Peter eats crisps. Part coming-of-age story and part urban travelogue, this brilliantly funny book is a must for anyone who has ever been baffled by a teenage boy.

Take Down the Flag: Peter Mulvey’s Growing Song of Tribute a Call to Action

We know these names: Clementa Pinckney, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Cynthia Hurd, Susie Jackson, Ethel Lee Lance, DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Tywanza Sanders, Daniel L. Simmons Sr., Myra Thompson. A week ago, they were alive.

A week ago, during the hour of the night in which they were studying the practice of peace and love, a young white man fueled with racist ideology and its historical narrative of hatred entered their church and shot them dead. This man carried more than a gun — he carried in his mind a controversial symbol of the South: the Confederate flag.

This past week, flags have been lowered to half-staff. But not all of them. “Every flag over Charleston is at half-staff today — except one.” This is the first line of a new song, “Take Down Your Flag,” by singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey. On tour with Ani DiFranco last week, he saw the news of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church massacre and decided to write a song. He wrote it Friday night in the basement dressing room of the Calvin Theatre in Northampton, Massachusetts, right before his set. Then he performed it. This isn’t just any song. It’s one with a mission.

In a Facebook post, Peter writes, “In Charleston, the United States Flag and the South Carolina state flag are at half-mast for nine days, for the nine victims. But the Confederate battle flag is flying at the top of its pole. News outlets are reporting that lowering it can only be done by a vote of the state legislature. I submit that lowering it can be done by two hands and human decency.”

The song ends:

It will take all of the love in all of our hearts,
but it will also take something more.

Take down your flag to half-staff.
Take down your flag to half-staff.
Take down your flag to half-staff
And then take it down for good.

The Confederate flag has been flying high, a finger poking into a centuries-old open wound. Peter’s song demands that the flag at least be lowered to half-staff this Wednesday, when the body of Reverend Clementa Pinckney will lie in state at the South Carolina Capitol. “The thing that I’d most like to see,” he says, “is the Confederate flag at half-staff while Pinckney is lying in state underneath it. That would take just a small bit of the edge of the pain so many (including myself) are feeling.” The song also gives tribute to and remembrance of the nine people lost in this horrendous attack.

Peter uploaded the original version of “Take Down Your Flag” to YouTube on Saturday. It includes a verse remembering Susie Jackson. Someone asked if he’d write verses for all nine who were killed; by that time, two musicians had already covered the song, and Peter asked if they’d re-write their own verses in remembrance. This started a domino effect of musicians covering, re-writing, recording, and uploading their own additions.

Ani DiFranco sings a verse for Tywanza Sanders, Anaïs Mitchell gives tribute to DePayne Middleton-Doctor, and Erin McKeown sings about Sharonda Coleman-Singleton. Pamela Means‘ lyrics include: “Clementa Pinckney worked tirelessly for justice, peace, and love.” Vance Gilbert, speaking to the symbolism and historical residue of the Confederate flag, wrote a verse about alleged gunman Dylann Roof. Peter Mulvey most recently added a lyric for Reverend Pinckney: “Clementa Pinckney will lie in state on Wednesday afternoon. Please do not fly that flag over his body.”

In a matter of days, “Take Down Your Flag” has become a living song. Peter has just uploaded a video containing the chords and framework in hopes that more people will continue to grow this song and commemorate those we’ve lost.

Musicians, please think about recording this song with a new verse and sharing it with the world. It’s become a chain song of love, remembrance, and honor, and, most importantly, it’s a call to action. In a time like this, the world needs songs like this.

Peter Pan

Peter Pan


This Dead Dodo edition is formatted specifically for Kindle and features an exclusive Kindle-viewable image gallery containing pictures of the author. Barrie never described Peter’s appearance in detail, even in the novel Peter and Wendy, leaving much of it to the imagination of the reader and the interpretation of anyone adapting the character. Barrie mentions in Peter and Wendy that Peter Pan still had all of his baby teeth. He describes him as a beautiful boy with a beautiful smile, “clad in skeleton leaves and the juices that flow from trees”. In the play, Peter’s outfit is made of autumn leaves and cobwebs. His name and playing the flute suggest the mythological character Pan. Traditionally, the character has been played on stage by an adult woman. In Peter Pan in Scarlet, Geraldine McCaughrean adds to the description of his appearance, mentioning his blue eyes, and saying that his hair is light (or at least any colour lighter than black). In this novel, Never Land has moved on to autumn, so Peter wears a tunic of jay feathers and maple leaves. In the Starcatcher stories written by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter has carrot-orange hair and bright blue eyes. In the Disney films, Peter wears an outfit that was easier to animate, consisting of a short-sleeved green tunic and tights apparently made of cloth, and a cap with a red feather in it. He has pointed elf-like ears, and his hair is a very red auburn. In the live-action 2003 film, he is portrayed by Jeremy Sumpter, who has blond hair and blue eyes, and his outfit is made of leaves and vines. In Hook, he is played as an adult by Robin Williams with dark brown hair, but in flashbacks to his youth his hair is more orangish. In this film his ears appear pointed only when he is Peter Pan, not Peter Banning; his Pan clothing resembles the Disney outfit.

Yale President Peter Salovey: ‘The Most Effective Way To Combat Speech You Don’t Like Is With Speech’

Yale President Peter Salovey spoke on free expression on campuses, reflecting on a recent incident at the University of California, Berkeley, where students protested comedian Bill Maher’s appearance at a graduation ceremony because of controversial comments he made about Muslims.

“It’s very difficult. You see this controversy playing out on many different campuses over the last couple of years,” Salovey said.

Salovey said he thinks people want to live in an environment where others are respectful and civil, but being offended can be a learning experience.

“It’s fine to protest, it’s fine to raise one’s own voice,” Salovey said. “The most effective way to combat speech you don’t like is with speech.”

Peter Pan Moms: We Won’t Grow Up

We Peter Pan Moms make up the first-generation of hot moms, MILFS and cougars — congratulations and condolences to us. Take, for example, the Facebook timeline. We Peter Pan Moms update our vanity avatars more often than we floss, alternating between a youthful headshot taken from above (always from above) and a peek at our latest ink. We channel our rock star within on the dance floor, at the karaoke mic and sometimes party a bit too much like it’s 1999. Make that 1989. Sun City has no idea what’s coming, but they better amp up their WiFi, add tattoo artist to their spas and start training their DJs.

Once a vanity reserved for celebrities, now the illusion of forever (lifted, rejuvenated, de-veined) young falls within reach of the masses. During their “hot mom” years, our grandmas wore modest dresses and stockings. Mom wore “mom jeans” because that’s how jeans came — high in the waist and ample in the hips. The only women in America getting routine plastic surgery lived in Beverly Hills or could afford to. As kids, we occasionally begged off of our mothers (and fathers) wardrobes, but they certainly didn’t beg off ours. Maybe — maybe — a classmate mentioned your mom as pretty, but MILF? An unthinkable moniker, and If anyone did think about it, they certainly did not celebrate it aloud. We called our friends’ parents Mr. and Mrs.; The line between parent and child, teen and adult, and those who should and should not wear mini-dresses seemed obvious. When Dirty Dancing came out, we certainly hadn’t seen our parents doing anything remotely like it at Auntie’s wedding.

I fear that Peter Pan Moms — as we joust with standards of hardbodies, wrinkle-free foreheads, full manes of no-greys (and nary-a-hair-elsewhere )– have created our own hawt purgatory, NeverNeverEVERLand. I foresee us as centenarians in NeverNeverEverLand, clenching our hot mom sashes and stilettos in arthritic joints, instead of gracefully handing them over to the next generation in exchange for Clark’s Wallabees and elastic waist pants.

Our grandmas couldn’t conceive of this NeverNeverEVER Land. Our moms fought too hard to be taken seriously to risk wearing pants that showed crack. Legs got shaved — maybe armpits — but if my crotch-height memories serve me correctly, our moms worried even less about their bikini lines than they did about the rubber swim caps suctioned to their natural salt-and-pepper hairdos. While sometimes I revel in my Peter Pan Mom rebellion of middle age, I also wonder how long I can keep it up. Instead of using our real life matriarchs as role models or adopting the Women’s Studies 101 ideals we once tormented our loved ones with around the dinner table, Peter Pan Mom desperately searches for ways to look less and less MOM.

My mom has always dressed and behaved with dignity and class (at least in public and so far as I know). She exercises for good health, not for hard abs (which neither she nor any prior generation sought, nor even found attractive). Growing up, I never heard her complain about her body, nor lament its aging. I hope that we Peter Pan Moms figure out how to marry our vanity with our aging bodies, obsess less over how our bodies look and shift our focus on to gratitude for how well they (hopefully) still work. I hope we learn to share the spotlight and know when the time comes to sit in the audience and clap when Tinkerbell publishes her first blog post. Most of all, I hope that we embrace the softness of our laps, while our Wendys Michaels and Johns still want to sit in them.

First Nighter: Peter Brooks’ “Valley of Astonishment,” “The Sucker Emcee,” “The Bullpen”

(Peter Brooks’ production The Valley of Astonishment has opened at Theatre for a New Audience’s Polonsky Shakespeare Center. Here is the review I filed after seeing it at London’s Young Vic in June.)

The interest Oliver Sacks takes in the human brain fascinates Peter Brook. The Valley of Astonishment is another consequence of that fascination, and, as presented at the Young Vic, currently Brook’s London outlet of choice, it, too, is fascinating.

Just after it begins, small and child-like-voiced Kathryn Hunter, these days Brook’s frequent leading lady of choice, introduces herself as Sammy Costas and announces she’s a “real phenomenon.” A reporter, she illustrates why she’s a phenomenon on a visit she makes to a clinic at the suggestion of her editor after he becomes aware of her unusually impressive memory.

The doctors testing her (Marcelo Magni, Jared McNeill) diagnose her case as synesthesia. She’s able to remember long series of words and numbers because she instantly associates what she’s told with colors, sounds and objects.

Although she’s fired from her newspaper job for being overqualified, she gets stage work based on her astonishing memory. It’s a life that goes well for quite a while, until she realizes that everything she’s been asked to remember has cluttered her brain. She needs to forget, but can she construct a way? That’s her dilemma for the remainder of Brook’s enthralling 75 minutes.

The formidable director, now 83 and working as he often does with Marie-Hélene Estienne, intersperses two other conditions with Costas’s. The first involves a patient (McNeill), who associates sounds and letters of the alphabet with color. Confiding that he was an unhappy child among other children — he made the mistake of telling friends that “A” is pink — he found himself when he realized that if he paints the colors he sees when listening to jazz, he’d have a career.

The other patient (Magni) consulting the doctors (McNeill, Hunter this time) suffers from proprioception, which is the loss of a sense of how body parts coordinate. He’s of particular enlightenment for the physicians, because he’s formulated a system by which he has partially recovered: focusing his eyes on whatever body part he wants to move and having it respond. On entering the doctors’ office, he’s especially proud that he arrived on his own, awkwardly but successfully.

As an addition to his preceding Sacks-related pieces The Man Who and Je Suis un Phenomene, The Valley of Astonishment — which the painter declares is the place reached where an affliction becomes an asset — has great charm. (It’s enhanced by Raphael Chambouvet at the piano and Toshi Tsuchitori on wind instruments).

Much of the charm — in a piece that ultimately doesn’t come to any conclusions about the brain’s infinite capacity — is due to the playing and includes an interlude when actor/sleight-of-hand artist Magni uses audience members to execute several card tricks. Exactly what the music-hall turn has to do with synesthesia and proprioception is obscure, but it definitely adds to the overall, uh, astonishment.
**************************************************************************************************
Two current solo entries of more than passing interest about men needing to discuss their successes and transgressions:

A Sucker Emcee – Bank Street Theatre: Craig “muMs” Grant relives his life leading up to and away from the years he starred in HBO’s Oz. Lucky to have a supportive father and mother, he still endured setbacks from childhood on and spent much time wandering off the straight and narrow. His determination to keep on trucking saw him through–and is continuing, as this 90-minute solo show attests, to see him through. Intent on doing the thing he loves, he passes along his observations and advice mostly in hip-hop rhyme. (Hip-hop rhyme, of course, means off-rhyming as often as, or more often than, perfect rhyming.) There is no gainsaying the enhancement dj Rich Medina lends as he jives upstage of Grant’s with the necessary equipment. Jenny Koons directed the Labyrinth Theater Company production economically.

The Bullpen – Playroom Theater: Joe Assadourian pulls off a tour de force that’s built around his experiences in a holding cell and in court in relation to being arrested for threatening a policeman in a street fracas. Claiming he’s innocent of all impending charges until he lets up on his protests, he not only plays himself in the unpleasant incarcerated circumstances but also impersonates 16 characters whom he encountered during his couple of visits to that cell and one high-pitched judge in court. Having developed the piece while in prison–oh, yes, Assadourian served time–he’s become adept as a mimic. As a function of his ability to switch characterization in nanoseconds, he manages to be funny and earnest in quick turns. Richard Hoehler directs the Eric Krebs presentation in association with The Fortune Society.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit (Illustrated)

The Tale of Peter Rabbit (Illustrated)


The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a children’s book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter that follows mischievous and disobedient young Peter Rabbit as he is chased about the garden of Mr. McGregor. He escapes and returns home to his mother who puts him to bed after dosing him with chamomile tea. The tale was written for five-year-old Noel Moore, son of Potter’s former governess Annie Carter Moore, in 1893. It was revised and privately printed by Potter in 1901 after several publishers’ rejections but was printed in a trade edition by Frederick Warne & Co. in 1902. The book was a success, and multiple reprints were issued in the years immediately following its debut. It has been translated into 36 languages and with 45 million copies sold it is one of the best-selling books of all time. The book has generated considerable merchandise over the decades since its release for both children and adults with toys, dishes, foods, clothing, videos and other products made available. Potter was one of the first to be responsible for such merchandise when she patented a Peter Rabbit doll in 1903 and followed it almost immediately with a Peter Rabbit board game. By making the hero of the tale a disobedient and rebellious little rabbit, Potter subverted her era’s definition of the good child and the literary hero genre which typically followed the adventures of a brave, resourceful, young white male. Peter Rabbit appeared as a character in a 1971 ballet film, and the tale has been adapted to an animated television series. The book includes original colored illustrations by Beatrix Potter and a FREE audiobook link for download (which can be downloaded separately using a PC/Mac) at the end of the book.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

The Tale of Peter Rabbit


Peter Rabbit, his sisters Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, and his mother are anthropomorphic rabbits who dress in human clothing and generally walk upright on their hind legs, though they live in a rabbit hole under a fir-tree. Mother Rabbit has forbidden her children to enter the garden of Mr. McGregor: it was there that their father met his untimely end and became the ingredient of a pie. However, while Mrs. Rabbit is shopping and the girls are collecting blackberries, Peter sneaks into the garden. There, he gorges on vegetables until he gets sick, and is then chased about by Mr. McGregor. When Peter loses his jacket and his shoes, Mr. McGregor uses them to dress a scarecrow. After several close encounters with Mr. McGregor, Peter escapes the garden and returns to his mother exhausted and ill. She puts him to bed with a dose of camomile tea while his sisters (who have been good little bunnies) enjoy bread and milk and blackberries for supper. In a 1904 sequel, The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, Peter returns to McGregor’s garden to retrieve his lost clothes.
