The New York Times Magazine featured Corinne Bailey Rae, Solange, and Les Nubians modeling beautful gowns and their natural hair. Check it out.
Congratulations to Melanie! She was announced as “America’s Favorite Dancer” on the So You Think You Can Dance finale. While not one of my favorite seasons of SYTYCD, there were some truly talented dancers on the show this year. Melanie, for instance, was a revelation: always grounded, with beautiful extension, and lovely control.
Tomorrow notes on the finale!
On September 25th, the U.S. Postal Service will release four stamps featuring art work from Romare Bearden. Bearden produced art over a 50-year period, and is perhaps best known for his collage work.
You can learn more about each of the designs here.
The titles of the works, from left to right are: Conjunction (1971); Odysseus: Poseidon, The Sea God—Enemy of Odysseus (1977); Prevalence of Ritual: Conjur Woman; and Falling Star (1979)
I am so excited to see this. Yes, I know there will be problematic pieces, yes, ok. And it’s going to be very violent. But I am still so excited. Suspension of disbelief! Suspension of disbelief!
Columbiana will be released on August 26th. The fact that Michael Vartan is in the movie makes a direct connection to me to Alias, in which Vartan played a key role.
Man, PBS is great…a little jog down memory lane. Margaret Richard was the original, before PX90, before Ab-busters, Margaret Richards kept us in white high tops, neon spandex (why thebelt, what does that do?), and the all important scrunch socks.
Thank you Margaret Richard. And the music – it’s classic.
Such a beautiful song, sung by such a wonderful artist, with a thoughtful approach to song-writing.
A friend reminded me of the sheer beauty of the melancholy and reflection of this song. The pure music – as Adele says, she makes music for listening, not for eyes.
Thank you Adele.
