Have you noticed how in the era of the Digital music we rarely have any idea who plays what on a record? If Led Zeppelin were a 2014 band John Bonham would be that guy that plays the drums with Led Zeppelin, that nobody would bother look up the name.
Wide characters, deep storytelling, bad hair and a great 1970s soundtrack fill this stylishly seductive comedy about small time con artists working their way up the food chain. Sublimely well written, with a rich focus on the personal insecurities…
I am a porn star. I am a college freshman. You know nothing about me.
"Patriarchy fears female sexuality.
It terrifies us to even fathom that a woman could take ownership of her body. We deem to keep women in a place where they are subjected to male sexuality. We seek to rob them of their choice and of their autonomy. We want to oppress them and keep them dependent on the patriarchy. A woman who transgresses the norm and takes ownership of her body — because that’s exactly what porn is, no matter how rough the sex is — ostensibly poses a threat to the deeply ingrained gender norms that polarize our society.
I am well aware: The threat I pose to the patriarchy is enormous. That a woman could be intelligent, educated and CHOOSE to be a sex worker is almost unfathomable.”
Inside the exclusive annual dinner of Kappa Beta Phi.
During his introductory remarks, Ross spoke for several minutes about the legend of Kappa Beta Phi– how it had been started in 1929 by “four C+ William and Mary students”; how its crest, depicting a “macho right hand in a proper Savile Row suit and a Turnbull and Asser shirtsleeve,” was superior to that of its namesake Phi Beta Kappa (Ross called Phi Beta Kappa’s ruffled-sleeve logo a “tacit confession of homosexuality”); and how the fraternity’s motto, “Dum vivamus edimus et biberimus,” was Latin for “While we live, we eat and drink.”
Nearly two years after that first meeting, CNN caught up with Marshall to find out how the country’s fledgling metal scene is developing.
“The difference is quite extreme,” said Marshall. “Before then it was largely unknown and now there seems to be a lot of interest. If you look over the internet people have a lot of interest in this new form.
“The last frontier of rock and metal music is African now, is what people are saying, so they are very interested in seeing this scene grow from its, sort of, infancy and seeing where it could go.”
And Marshall thinks African bands could one day bang heads with the biggest international names in stadium rock.
“I think it’s just going to take hold and grow rapidly,” he said. “Africa will start producing very notable international rock bands and metal bands as well and probably in 10 years’ time it won’t be unusual to see bands from Africa headlining big stages and sharing stages with bands like Metallica. It’s not beyond reason — I’d like to see that happen.”
Come ogni anno, l’altro ieri (lunedì 10 febbraio) ho fatto la mia solita capatina ad Identità Golose (un importante congresso di cucina che si svolge da 10 anni a Milano). E, sentendo lo chef Massimo Bottura parlare di cucina e filosofia di lavoro ad una platea rapita, mi è venuto da pensare.
