This second article in my series about the absurdly productive trans-national art star Jan Fabre (the first is here ) has very little to do directly with him or his work. Rather, it is about the State Hermitage Museum, one of the wonders of the world. We take a look at it because it is on this field which Fabre agreed to stake a claim.
Now that the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series and broken then century long curse, the highlight of Wrigley Field has us thinking about the other great stadiums throughout America. The use of stadiums dates back to ancient times, back when the reigning entertainment of the day for a mass audience usually involved some permutation of “sprint really fast while a lion chases you then try and kill your opponent with a rock.” Thankfully, apart from maybe anytime a terrible entertainer performs, things have matured considerably at the hundreds of events that take place at scads of stadiums throughout the U.S. Baseball and the occasional major concert are the primary serving inside the hallowed ground of U.S

*As I write this I am watching, as we all are, what looks like John Podesta saying, “Don’t worry, we’re going to sneakily fix this huge mistake you idiots are making right now.” I hate to say it, but that part of me that feels like this has to be a nightmare and I’ll wake up any second, really wishes those sneaky bastards could do something, but of course that’s just the bargaining stage. If this really is legitimate then we have to just accept that we are broken, and try to find ways to fix it.

NEW ORLEANS ― Twenty-five years ago, the melting pot of culture and tradition that makes up the Crescent City was overshadowed by a cloud of evil.

Photographer: Barbara Nitke I believe it’s safe to say that all married women have fantasized, at least once, about having sex with another partner during their healthy, happy, and loving marriage. Her fantasy may be a secret affair with a celebrity, someone at the office, or perhaps just a sexy and willing figment of her imagination. Most women never act on these (normal, healthy) impulses, but some couples do — in a totally consensual way

Republican presidential candidate John Kasich says he’d set up an agency with a “mandate” to promote what he calls “Judeo-Christian values” overseas to counter Islamist propaganda.

I traveled to Europe as a 2-year-old and again as a teenager. What remains from these trips are faint memories, and photos of places I can no longer name.

Mormon missionaries have become so much of a cultural joke that there is a Broadway musical about them. Everyone knows what Mormon missionaries look like: classic dark suits with white shirts and ties, and that iconic name badge with “Elder Last Name” or “Sister Last Name” and the full name of the Mormon church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Mormon missionaries are always trying to get you to take a copy of The Book of Mormon and to tell you about their crazy cult, right?
