This Dinner Party Handbook Is The Perfect Way To Learn Queer History

An awesome new project is in the works that will provide fodder for an inclusive conversation about queer history while bringing people together in a dinner party setting.

“Serving Pride: The Queer History Dinner Party Handbook” is currently engaged in a Kickstarter campaign but its creators hope to have the handbook complete by June ― just in time for Pride 2017.

“Coming out is, in some ways, one of the most important political acts we do as queer people,” co-creator Joey Stern told The Huffington Post. “We say to friends and family ‘See me, see me like this.’ Learning about our history, teaching others about our history, thats how we say to each-other ‘See us, see all of us.’ It’s not just learning history, but learning it together that really solidifies that experience. You’re not alone, you’re part of vast and connected community.”

Resources like “Serving Pride” are more important than ever, in an era when its easy to lose sight of our history as LGBTQ people and our collective struggles.

Head here to check out the Kickstarter campaign and keep your eyes peeled for more from “Serving Pride: The Queer History Dinner Party Handbook.”

‘Hamilton’-Themed ‘Drunk History’ Is The Holiday Gift We Deserve

If you didn’t catch the latest “Drunk History” ― Episode 10, Season 4 ― please correct your mistake. Stream the blessed television experience on Comedy Central’s website or app so that you, like we did, can witness the magic that is Lin-Manuel Miranda, drunk, reciting history like it’s his job.

(Note: It was his job. See: “Hamilton: An American Musical,” which he created. And that’s why he’s do goddamn good at it, even when plied with copious amounts of booze.)

If you’ve already watched the episode several times today… great. Let’s talk. There are a few moments we’d like to underscore. Because the biography of Alexander Hamilton is made infinitely more interesting when acted out by the likes of Alia Shawkat, Aubrey Plaza, Tony Hale, David Wain, Bokeem Woodbine and a little known actor named David Grohl. (Yes, Dave Grohl.)

Those moments are:

  • This introductory quote from Miranda on Alexander Hamilton: “History spoiler: He’s gonna invent our economy.”
  • That time a “sick-ass Hamilton” arrived on a flaming ship to America. Note to audience: “Your ass will never be the same.”

  • The first time Miranda acknowledged his drunkenness: “OK, I’m gonna lean forward … Oh shit, I’m drunk … Pretty drunk.”
  • The second time he acknowledged his drunkenness: “I’m giggly and there’s gaps in my memory already.”

  • That time Miranda compared the Reynolds Pamphlet to a Penthouse Letter using the phrases “ripped-bodice woman” and “Dick 101.” (Bonus, you can read the real Reynolds Pamphlet here and compare them to Penthouse Letters for yourself!)
  • That time Questlove FaceTimed with Miranda during the “Drunk History” taping. Also, that time Christopher Jackson FaceTimed with him during the same taping. “You’re my best friend,” Miranda told Jackson. “As long as I have a job, you have a job.” #SquadGoals.
  • When Miranda and “Drunk History” host/co-creator Derek Waters discussed ordering a Domino’s pizza. (We’ve all been there.)
  • When Miranda said “bro” at least nine times in a row.
  • When Miranda sang ― and played on the piano ― a rendition of Semisonic’s “Closing Time.” Wow.
  • That time Miranda introduced us to the phrase “fuck you-it-iveness.”
  • Those closing words: “It’s fucked up. It’s really fucked up.”
  • Finally, everything Tony Hale did. Just gaze upon the clip above and the screenshots below.

There are few things in this world as beautiful as a “Drunk History” episode. And to modify that statement, there are few things in this world as beautiful as the original “Drunk History” episode about the American statesman and Founding Father Hamilton.

Somehow, Miranda is able to charmingly swear his way through a rival performance, proving that he and his pony tail can do anything. Anything.

Kristen Wiig Sings A Very Questionable History Of Thanksgiving On ‘SNL’

Kristen Wiig joined “Saturday Night Live” cast members in singing the history of Thanksgiving.

But some of her claims — like Christopher Columbus sailing to the Americas from South Korea — were, let’s just say, somewhat dubious. It was enough to prompt special guests Steve Martin and Will Forte to drop in and call out Wiig on her accuracy.

“Guys, I know I adjusted some of the facts so they would rhyme, like any true historian,” Wiig said in her defense, before her guests also got swept in the holiday spirit.

After all, who needs real facts in this post-truth world?

My Front-Row Seat to History: PEOPLE Senior Editor Charlotte Triggs Watches Trump Win the Presidency

Throughout his astonishing run for president, PEOPLE senior editor Charlotte Triggs has covered every moment of Donald Trump’s campaign – from interviewing him in the luxury of his Trump Tower apartment with his family, to his office, laden with magazines featuring his face – to accompanying him on the trail.

On Tuesday night she joined his supporters as he was elected the 45th President of the United States:

The last time I saw Donald Trump, it was in March and he had invited me on the campaign trail.

What had started as a simple interview at his imposing office at Trump Tower ended up in the Presidential candidate inviting me to a rally in Tucson, Arizona, on a whim.

Fast forward to eight months later and I’m standing in the Hilton Midtown hotel in New York City.

As the minutes and hours ticked by, and vital states fell to Trump, the crowd smelled triumph. For the most part, the atmosphere was enthusiastic. For Trump’s jubilant supporters, they really believed they were vanquishing an evil person — Hillary Clinton. But then in darker moments, there were cries of “Lock her up” and “build the wall.”

Some also turned on the press, most of whom were kept in a pen, sneering “Come on, smile.”

But as it sank in that Trump had REALLY won, the crowd, many wearing Trump’s now-famous Make America Great Again caps — “These hats are so hot. You can’t get them,” Trump had told me — started screaming with joy.

The room was a busy, steaming hot whirl of flags and signs. It was so hot one woman fainted and others seemed to be overheating.

As I looked around, I still could not believe the man who I was so used to seeing on my TV screen, the man I had interviewed so many times, was our next President.

With a front-row seat to history, this is a night none of us will forget.

Welfare in the United States: A History with Documents, 1935 1996

Welfare in the United States: A History with Documents, 1935 1996


Welfare has been central to a number of significant political debates in modern America: What role should the government play in alleviating poverty? What does a government owe its citizens, and who is entitled to help? How have race and gender shaped economic opportunities and outcomes? How should Americans respond to increasing rates of single parenthood? How have poor women sought to shape their own lives and influence government policies? With a comprehensive introduction and a well-chosen collection of primary documents, Welfare in the United States chronicles the major turning points in the seventy-year history of Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC). Illuminating policy debates, shifting demographics, institutional change, and the impact of social movements, this book serves as an essential guide to the history of the nation’s most controversial welfare program.

Invisible Stars: A Social History of Women in American Broadcasting

Invisible Stars: A Social History of Women in American Broadcasting


Invisible Stars was the first book to recognize that women have always played an important part in American electronic media. The emphasis is on social history, as the author skillfully explains how the changing role of women in different eras influenced their participation in broadcasting. This is not just the story of radio stars or broadcast journalists, but a social history of women both on and off the air. Beginning in the early 1920s with the emergence of radio, the book chronicles the ambivalence toward women in broadcasting during the 1930s and 1940s, the gradual change in status of women in the 1950s and 1960s, the increased presence of women in broadcasting in the 1970s, and the successes of women in broadcasting in the 1980s and 1990s. The second edition is expanded to include the social and political changes that occurred in the 2000s, such as the growing number of women talk show hosts; changing attitudes about women in leadership roles in business; more about minority women in media; and women in sports and women sports announcers. The author addresses the question of whether women are in fact no longer invisible in electronic media. She provides an assessment of where progress for women (in society as well as broadcasting) can be seen, and where progress appears totally stalled.

A Brief History of Tomorrow: How The Experts Usually Screw Up (Future Forecasting)

A Brief History of Tomorrow: How The Experts Usually Screw Up (Future Forecasting)


A fascinating look at the future, as you’ve never seen it. Ten years from now, will we have a tiny personal computer surgically inserted in an earlobe, capable of connecting to phone lines and the internet? Fifty years from now, will atomic-sized robots replace surgeons? A hundred years from now, instead of taking the bus, will we simply teleport to work? It all may sound like impossible science fiction, but not too long ago, so did walking on the moon. Journalist Jonathan Margolis interviews leading thinkers in such fields as genetics, medicine, neurobiology, quantum physics, robotics, computer science, and space travel to explore where we’re going, and what it will look like when – and if – we get there. Beginning with famously flawed past visions of the future – among them H.G. Wells, George Orwell, Arthur C. Clarke, Stephen Hawking, and Bill Gates – Margolis examines many of the strange and tempting futures that may lie in store for us. Politics, society, religion, and work are all destined for great changes. What might they be? How will they come about? Thought-provoking, amusing, and absolutely original, A Brief History of Tomorrow is a deliciously compelling look at something we all spend a lot of time contemplating: the future.

1688: A Global History

1688: A Global History


A totally absorbing book. imaginative and erudite, full of startling juxtapositions and flashes of real perception.”-Jonathan D. Spence John E. Wills’s masterful history ushers us into the worlds of 1688, from the suicidal exaltation of Russian Old Believers to the ravishing voice of the haiku poet Basho. Witness the splendor of the Chinese imperial court as the Kangxi emperor publicly mourns the death of his grandmother and shrewdly consolidates his power. Join the great caravans of Muslims on their annual pilgrimage from Damascus and Cairo to Mecca. Walk the pungent streets of Amsterdam and enter the Rasp House, where vagrants, beggars, and petty criminals labored to produce powdered brazilwood for the dyeworks. Through these stories and many others, Wills paints a detailed picture of how the global connections of power, money, and belief were beginning to lend the world its modern form. “A vivid picture of life in 1688.filled with terrifying violence, frightening diseases. comfortingly familiar human kindnesses. and the intellectual achievements of Leibniz, Locke, and Newton.”-Publishers Weekly

�Schools of Tomorrow�, Schools of Today: What Happened to Progressive Education (History of Schools and Schooling, V. 8)


�Schools of Tomorrow,� Schools of Today documents some of the child-centered progressive schools founded in the first half of the twentieth century and provides histories of some more contemporary examples of progressive practices. Part I discusses seven progressive schools founded in the first part of the twentieth century (Francis W. Parker; Organic; Park; City and Country; Lincoln; Dalton; Arthurdale), tracing them from their beginnings to the present, or until their regrettable demises. Part II examines four more contemporary schools (Butterfield; Free Union Country; Urban Academy; W. Haywood Burns), showing how progressive practices gained momentum from the 1960s onward. As a volume in the History of Schools and Schooling series, this book seeks to look to the past for what it can teach us today. The lessons from the past about what has happened to progressive education hopefully will inform contemporary debates.

Henry VIII and History

Henry VIII and History


Henry VIII remains the most iconic and controversial of all English Kings. For over four-hundred years he has been lauded, reviled and mocked, but rarely ignored. In his many guises – model Renaissance prince, Defender of the Faith, rapacious plunderer of the Church, obese Bluebeard- he has featured in numerous works of fact and faction, in books, magazines, paintings, theatre, film and television. Yet despite this perennial fascination with Henry the man and monarch, there has been little comprehensive exploration of his historiographic legacy. Therefore scholars will welcome this collection, which provides a systematic survey of Henry’s reputation from his own age through to the present. Divided into three sections, the volume begins with an examination of Henry’s reputation in the period between his death and the outbreak of the English Civil War, a time that was to create many of the tropes that would dominate his historical legacy. The second section deals with the further evolution of his reputation, from the Restoration to Edwardian era, a time when Catholic commentators and women writers began moving into the mainstream of English print culture. The final section covers the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, which witnessed an explosion of representations of Henry, both in print and on screen. Taken together these studies, by a distinguished group of international scholars, offer a lively and engaging overview of how Henry’s reputation has been used, abused and manipulated in both academia and popular culture since the sixteenth century. They provide intriguing insights into how he has been reinvented at different times to reflect the cultural, political and religious demands of the moment; sometimes as hero, sometimes as villain, but always as an unmistakable and iconic figure in the historical landscape.

Biography of a Tenement House in New York City: An Architectural History of 97 Orchard Street

Biography of a Tenement House in New York City: An Architectural History of 97 Orchard Street


I trace my ancestry back to the Mayflower,” writes Andrew S. Dolkart. “Not to the legendary ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620, but to the more prosaic tenement on the southeast corner of East Broadway and Clinton Street named the Mayflower, where my father was born in 1914 to Russian-Jewish immigrants.” For Dolkart, his father’s experience of being raised in a tenement became a metaphor for the life that was afforded countless immigrant children growing up in Lower Manhattan during the past century. In this revised edition of his classic book, Dolkart presents for us a precise and informative biography of a typical tenement house in New York City that became, in 1988, the site for the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. The author documents, analyzes, and interprets the architectural and social history of this building at 97 Orchard Street, beginning in the 1860s when it was erected, moving on to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries when the neighborhood started to change, and concluding in the present day as the building is reincarnated as the museum. This edition includes new research on the basement storefronts (specifically the Schneider saloon and the kosher butcher), the backyard privies and their reconstruction, and the new Irish Moore apartment. “Biography of a Tenement House in New York City “is a lasting tribute to the legacy of immigrants and their children, who were part of the transformation of New York City and the fabric of everyday American urban life.

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain


Acclaimed author of ‘Wartime’, Juliet Gardiner, brings to life the long neglected decade of the twentieth century – the 1930s. J.B. Priestley famously described the ‘three Englands’ he saw in the 1930s: Old England, nineteenth-century England and the new, post-war England. Thirties Britain was, indeed, a land of contrasts, at once a nation rendered hopeless by the Depression, unemployment and international tensions, yet also a place of complacent suburban home-owners with a baby Austin in every garage. Now Juliet Gardiner, acclaimed author of the award-winning Wartime, provides a fresh perspective on that restless, uncertain, ambitious decade, bringing the complex experience of thirties Britain alive through newspapers, magazines, memoirs, letters and diaries. Gardiner captures the essence of a people part-mesmerised by ‘modernism’ in architecture, art and the proliferation of ‘dream palaces’, by the cult of fitness and fresh air, the obsession with speed, the growth and regimentation of leisure, the democratisation of the countryside, the celebration of elegance, glamour and sensation. Yet, at the same time, this was a nation imbued with a pervasive awareness of loss – of Britain’s influence in the world, of accepted political, social and cultural signposts, and finally of peace itself.

From Marilyn Monroe to Madonna, Here’s a Brief History of the All-American Denim Jacket

If jeans are as American as apple pie, then denim jackets are the vanilla ice cream on top: cool, classic, and always appealing. And while Proenza Schouler, Valentino, and Rachel Comey may have all sent their own trendy iterations down the fall 2015 runways, the denim jacket had already been trending for, oh, just 130 years or so.

The first denim jacket was created circa 1880 by denim legend and Levi’s founder Levi Strauss. Strauss is credited with designing the first-ever jeans in 1870 as a durable, breathable utility garment for cowboys, railroad engineers, and miners to wear during the gold rush out West. Soon after the runaway success of jeans, he gave the world a top to match and dubbed it the Triple Pleat Blouse.

We spoke with Tracey Panek, a historian at Levi Strauss & Co., who said that the denim jackets were ideal for laborers. “Our denim jacket was incredibly durable for various types of manual labor,” Panek said. “The horizontal seams holding down the pleats could be removed to give the wearer extra room.”

While the Levi’s denim jacket has evolved since then, the functionality and innate coolness of the piece has earned it the status as an all-American rebel’s outerwear of choice. “By the ’50s, wearing denim was often associated with juvenile delinquency,” Panek said. “Jeans were even banned in some schools, and denim became the nonconformists’ uniform of choice.” From James Dean’s iconic denim-jacket clad character in Rebel Without a Cause in the ’50s to Rihanna’s deconstructed versions today, jean jackets buck convention, express individuality, and epitomize anti-establishment cool.

Here’s a timeline of denim jackets that will inspire you to pull yours out right now.

levis-denim-jacket-1800sCirca 1880: The original Levi’s Triple Pleat Blouse designed by Strauss. One unique feature of this jacket is the vertical grain of the fabric. Its name is derived from the three pleats that run on either side of the center front.

He considers it his task to make a diagnosis of the culture of his age, to point to the latent or patent diseases, but also to the possibilities to overcome them. His diagnosis, prognosis, and prescriptions implied an overcoming of traditional interpretation of what is going on in the main domains of culture: knowledge, morality, religion, and art.

John Leguizamo Says High School History Makes Latino Students Feel ‘Invisible’

Latino contributions to U.S. history remain largely absent from high school history books, and John Leguizamo is doing something about it.

The 51-year-old actor and comedian sat down with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski Tuesday to discuss his upcoming film “American Ultra” and his upcoming comedy project “Latin History for Dummies.”

Over the years, Leguizamo has had success with autobiographical one-man shows like “Freak” and “Ghetto Klown,” in which he details his life experiences as a Latino growing up in the U.S. These projects, he told HuffPost Live, arose partly because he felt Latinos were underrepresented in the media.

“It was like, I’m watching TV and I’m watching movies and listening to radio and we’re invisible,” Leguizamo said. “I was like, where are all the Latin people that I hang out with and goof with all day and talk about politics and talk about art?… So I started writing my own stuff, I wanted to see my people the way I saw them.”

On the topic of Latino visibility, the comedian showed particular concern for the absence of Latinos in U.S. history education — despite research that shows Latino students exposed to ethnic studies perform better in school. 

“Just imagine, you’re a white kid and all of a sudden everybody’s Latin and everything they’re teaching you is Latin and you don’t hear anything about yourself or about your contributions,” Leguizamo said. “You don’t know hear about George Washington, you don’t hear about Thomas Jefferson and you feel like you haven’t contributed anything. How would you feel? How would you think of your future? How would you think of your participation in American culture?”

“You feel like an invisible person screaming in the woods and nobody hears you,” he added. “And it’s really weird and unfair because we had huge contributions.”

Watch Leguizamo discuss Latino contributions to U.S. history above. And watch the full segment below to hear the actor’s thought on who is to blame for the lack of Latinos in film.

The Ten Greatest Stoners in Movie History

2015-07-09-1436481138-3421662-candc

2015 will most likely go down as the year that the once-taboo became respectable, with both gay marriage and marijuana finding legal and public acceptance nationwide. While the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in all fifty states, the marijuana initiative is having an appropriately slower, but steady climb into legality. That said, we thought we’d take a look at some of cinema’s greatest proponents of the stoner lifestyle, before it all becomes downright conventional.


10. Jeff Spicoli–Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Sean Penn not only became a star with his turn as surfer/stoner Jeff Spicoli in the 1980s’ most iconic teen movie, he established how the stoners of the ’80s differed from their predecessors: while the rebels of the ’60s and ’70s viewed their use of cannabis as a symbol of rebellion, and preferred it to alcohol and the other symbols of their parents’ generation and its decadence, in the ’80s it was all about hedonism, which included drinking and smoking weed in kind. Spicoli’s mantra of “All I need are tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I’m fine,” became the motto of all kids raised in the Reagan Era.


9. Captain America (aka Wyatt) and Billy–Easy Rider (1969)

If the Beatles and Bob Dylan helped bring stoner culture into the Baby Boomers’ lexicon, Easy Rider was the movie that cemented stonerism as a necessary component of the counterculture. This was driven home in the now-classic scene where Wyatt and Billy (Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper) get country lawyer George Hanson (Jack Nicholson, in his star-making role) high for the first time (“Marijuana! Is that what that is?”), followed by George/Jack’s brilliantly stony monologue about how aliens are living and breeding among us.


8. Dave “Woody” Wooderson–Dazed and Confused (1993)

Matthew McConaughey’s character of perpetual teenager Woody Wooderson in director Richard Linklater’s homage to life in suburban Austin, TX., circa 1976, is never given a specific age, but his status as a weed connoisseur and an impressive lexicon of meme-worthy quotes (“Alright, alright, alright.” “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.” And the pièce de résistance: “Wooderson: Say, man, you got a joint? Mitch: No, not on me, man. Wooderson: It’d be a lot cooler if you did.”) make his status as an all-time stoner champ indisputable.


7. Harold and Kumar–Harold and Kumar Trilogy (2004, 2008, 2011)

Harold and Kumar brought stonerism into the 21st century with aplomb, style and epic cases of the munchies. What began as a simple odyssey to fuel their Maryjane-induced hunger pangs, led to an epic, Candide-like tale to such exotic locales at Guantanamo, Radio City Music Hall, KKK rallies, and smoking up with such disparate characters as Santa Claus, George W. Bush and a persona-smashing incarnation of Neil Patrick Harris.


8. Sgt. Elias–Platoon (1986)

Oliver Stone’s Oscar-sweeper told a story of the Vietnam War from the grunt’s POV. One of the first things that Private Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) sees when he arrives at his platoon’s camp is that the soldiers are clearly divided into two groups: the ultra-right wing boozers (led by psycho Sgt. Barnes, played to perfection by Tom Berenger) and the progressive rock & roll loving stoners, led by the philosophical Sgt. Elias (Willem Dafoe). I think most people can agree that there was nothing fun about the Vietnam War and the men who fought it were treated with equal contempt by the Vietnamese people and their fellow Americans upon returning home, one of the darkest chapters in our country’s history. That said, if you had to be there, deciding which camp you would have belonged to is one hell of a litmus test.


7. Ivan Martin–The Harder They Come (1972)

Perry Henzell’s story of country lad Ivan Martin (Reggae great Jimmy Cliff) who travels to big city Kingston with dreams of musical stardom is credited for single-handedly popularizing Reggae music and culture in the U.S. Of course as it deals with Rastafarian culture and people, there are epic amounts of ganja featured in this remarkable film, which has Ivan being pulled in opposite directions by crooked record producers and drug dealers, forcing him to become a criminal to survive. In the end, even the kind buds indigenous to Jamaica’s soil can’t change Ivan’s fate, but until then, what a ride!


6. Floyd–True Romance (1993)

A box office disappointment upon release that became a classic in retrospect, True Romance features a script by pre-Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino and a cast of actors who became a who’s-who of stars as the 1990s progressed. No one fit this bill more than Brad Pitt, whose scene-stealing supporting turn as Floyd, the uber-stoner roommate of Michael Rappaport’s Dick Ritchie, remains the film’s most memorable character, in spite of being surrounded with dozens of colorful turns by a dream cast. In fact, one could argue that Floyd’s passive stonerism is the only thing that saves him from becoming another notch on the gunbelt of ruthless mafia hitmen who lay waste to everyone else in their wake. “You guys wanna…smoke a bowl?”


5. Professor Jennings–Animal House (1978)

Donald Sutherland does a memorable loopy turn as stony college professor who turns on a few of his students one night in 1962. Tom Hulce’s monologue about universes inside fingernails remains one of the most authentic stony, pseud-intellectual monologues ever written. Sutherland’s gentle, amused demeanor throughout is priceless.


4. Carl Spackler–Caddyshack (1980)

Bill Murray’s left-of-center groundskeeper Carl is one of cinema’s most memorable oddballs, whether he’s chipping away a freshly-planted flower bed with fantasies of PGA glory, hunting terrorist gophers with plastic explosives or sharing his own strain of weed with Bushwood Country Club stalwart Ty Webb (Chevy Chase), explaining “This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sinsemilla. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff.” The classic scene between Murray and Chase was, apparently, entirely improvised on the spot. We are all the luckier for it.


3. The Dude–The Big Lebowski (1998)

Jeff Bridges’ “The Dude” is a prototypical sixties leftover who finds himself stuck in the middle of a 1990s film noir nightmare, in the Coen Brothers’ brilliant, unique satire. When the Dude isn’t swilling his signature White Russian cocktails, weed is his go-to vice of choice, which he smokes with gusto. Our favorite exchange: “Blond Treehorn Thug: [holding up a bowling ball] What the fuck is this? The Dude: Obviously you’re not a golfer.” Through it all, The Dude abides.


2. Hunter S. Thompson–Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

Director Terry Gilliam remains the only filmmaker to bring Hunter S. Thompson’s unique brand of mad brilliance to the screen with success, and what a dizzying, psychedelic masterpiece it is. Adapted from Thompson’s memoir (as his alter ego, Raoul Duke, played by Johnny Depp) detailing a cross-country road trip with attorney/comrade Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) and their search for “The American Dream,” fueled by a pharmacy of drugs and alcohol in the trunk of Duke’s car, The Red Shark. A book and a film that almost defy description, suffice to say that, according to most devoted stoners and practitioners of extreme behavior/lifestyles, no other film captures the energy, attitudes and visions of drug use better.


1. Pedro and “Man” (aka Cheech & Chong) – Up in Smoke (1978)

The most joyful depiction of stoner lifestyle ever committed to celluloid, Cheech & Chong popularized stoner humor and culture in a series of top-selling records during the 1970s, with this 1978 ode to taking it easy being their pinnacle. The plot, such as it is, has the boys unwittingly driving a van made of weed from L.A. to Mexico, with the Fascistic narc Sgt. Stedenko (Stacy Keach, hilarious) hot on their trail. Our favorite moment, which was a tough one to choose, is posted above.

The Ten Greatest Stoners in Movie History

2015-07-09-1436481138-3421662-candc

2015 will most likely go down as the year that the once-taboo became respectable, with both gay marriage and marijuana finding legal and public acceptance nationwide. While the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in all fifty states, the marijuana initiative is having an appropriately slower, but steady climb into legality. That said, we thought we’d take a look at some of cinema’s greatest proponents of the stoner lifestyle, before it all becomes downright conventional.


10. Jeff Spicoli–Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Sean Penn not only became a star with his turn as surfer/stoner Jeff Spicoli in the 1980s’ most iconic teen movie, he established how the stoners of the ’80s differed from their predecessors: while the rebels of the ’60s and ’70s viewed their use of cannabis as a symbol of rebellion, and preferred it to alcohol and the other symbols of their parents’ generation and its decadence, in the ’80s it was all about hedonism, which included drinking and smoking weed in kind. Spicoli’s mantra of “All I need are tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I’m fine,” became the motto of all kids raised in the Reagan Era.


9. Captain America (aka Wyatt) and Billy–Easy Rider (1969)

If the Beatles and Bob Dylan helped bring stoner culture into the Baby Boomers’ lexicon, Easy Rider was the movie that cemented stonerism as a necessary component of the counterculture. This was driven home in the now-classic scene where Wyatt and Billy (Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper) get country lawyer George Hanson (Jack Nicholson, in his star-making role) high for the first time (“Marijuana! Is that what that is?”), followed by George/Jack’s brilliantly stony monologue about how aliens are living and breeding among us.


8. Dave “Woody” Wooderson–Dazed and Confused (1993)

Matthew McConaughey’s character of perpetual teenager Woody Wooderson in director Richard Linklater’s homage to life in suburban Austin, TX., circa 1976, is never given a specific age, but his status as a weed connoisseur and an impressive lexicon of meme-worthy quotes (“Alright, alright, alright.” “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.” And the pièce de résistance: “Wooderson: Say, man, you got a joint? Mitch: No, not on me, man. Wooderson: It’d be a lot cooler if you did.”) make his status as an all-time stoner champ indisputable.


7. Harold and Kumar–Harold and Kumar Trilogy (2004, 2008, 2011)

Harold and Kumar brought stonerism into the 21st century with aplomb, style and epic cases of the munchies. What began as a simple odyssey to fuel their Maryjane-induced hunger pangs, led to an epic, Candide-like tale to such exotic locales at Guantanamo, Radio City Music Hall, KKK rallies, and smoking up with such disparate characters as Santa Claus, George W. Bush and a persona-smashing incarnation of Neil Patrick Harris.


8. Sgt. Elias–Platoon (1986)

Oliver Stone’s Oscar-sweeper told a story of the Vietnam War from the grunt (Charlie Sheen)’s POV. One of the first things that Private Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) sees when he arrives at his platoon’s camp is that the soldiers are clearly divided into two groups: the ultra-right wing boozers (led by psycho Sgt. Barnes, played to perfection by Tom Berenger) and the progressive rock & roll loving stoners, led by the philosophical Sgt. Elias (Willem Dafoe). I think most people can agree that there was nothing fun about the Vietnam War and the men who fought it were treated with equal contempt by the Vietnamese people and their fellow Americans upon returning home, one of the darkest chapters in our country’s history. That said, if you had to be there, deciding which camp you would have belonged to is one hell of a litmus test.


7. Ivan Martin–The Harder They Come (1972)

Perry Henzell’s story of country lad Ivan Martin (Reggae great Jimmy Cliff) who travels to big city Kingston with dreams of musical stardom is credited for single-handedly popularizing Reggae music and culture in the U.S. Of course as it deals with Rastafarian culture and people, there are epic amounts of ganja featured in this remarkable film, which has Ivan being pulled in opposite directions by crooked record producers and drug dealers, forcing him to become a criminal to survive. In the end, even the kind buds indigenous to Jamaica’s soil can’t change Ivan’s fate, but until then, what a ride!


6. Floyd–True Romance (1993)

A box office disappointment upon release that became a classic in retrospect, True Romance features a script by pre-Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino and a cast of actors who became a who’s-who of stars as the 1990s progressed. No one fit this bill more than Brad Pitt, whose scene-stealing supporting turn as Floyd, the uber-stoner roommate of Michael Rappaport’s Dick Ritchie, remains the film’s most memorable character, in spite of being surrounded with dozens of colorful turns by a dream cast. In fact, one could argue that Floyd’s passive stonerism is the only thing that saves him from becoming another notch on the gunbelt of ruthless mafia hitmen who lay waste to everyone else in their wake. “You guys wanna…smoke a bowl?”


5. Professor Jennings–Animal House (1978)

Donald Sutherland does a memorable loopy turn as stony college professor who turns on a few of his students one night in 1962. Tom Hulce’s monologue about universes inside fingernails remains one of the most authentic stony, pseud-intellectual monologues ever written.

The History Of Sneakers In High Fashion In One Short Minute

The rise of “Normcore” has proven that comfort is king, even when it comes to fashion. Any sneaker enthusiast will tell you, that sentiment has rung true long before the days of trendy Birkenstocks and overalls.

A new exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum titled “The Rise Of Sneaker Culture,” which runs from July 10-Oct. 4, 2015, features about 150 sneakers and examines the role the shoe has played in our society. “The Rise of Sneaker Culture is the first exhibition to explore the complex social history and cultural significance of the footwear now worn by billions of people throughout the world,” the museum said in a release.

In honor of the new exhibit, CNN released “A Brief History Of High Fashion Kicks” Wednesday. The awesome video provides an overview of sneakers involvement in fashion and is a pretty rad history lesson, too.

Check out the video above and for more information on the exhibit, click here.

Toxophilus -The School Of Shooting (History of Archery Series) Roger Ascham This work comprises of two books combined together: The First Book of the School of Shooting and The Second Book of the School of Shooting. They are written in the form of a dialogue between Toxophilus ‘A lover of the bow’ and Philogus ‘A lover of learning’.

Shaping the Day: A History of Timekeeping in England and Wales 1300-1800

Shaping the Day: A History of Timekeeping in England and Wales 1300-1800


Timekeeping is an essential activity in the modern world, and we take it for granted that our lives our shaped by the hours of the day. Yet what seems so ordinary today is actually the extraordinary outcome of centuries of technical innovation and circulation of ideas about time.

Shaping the Day is a pathbreaking study of the practice of timekeeping in England and Wales between 1300 and 1800. Drawing on many unique historical sources, ranging from personal diaries to housekeeping manuals, Paul Glennie and Nigel Thrift illustrate how a particular kind of common sense about
time came into being, and how it developed during this period.

Many remarkable figures make their appearance, ranging from the well-known, such as Edmund Halley, Samuel Pepys, and John Harrison, who solved the problem of longitude, to less familiar characters, including sailors, gamblers, and burglars.

Overturning many common perceptions of the past-for example, that clock time and the industrial revolution were intimately related-this unique historical study will engage all readers interested in how ''telling the time'' has come to dominate our way of life.

Twentieth Century History For Dummies

Twentieth Century History For Dummies


The 20th Century brought revolutionary changes to our world and our lives: the human population of the world tripled, space travel became reality, two world wars and a host of other conflicts were fought, and huge advances in science, technology and communication resulted in the globalised world we know today. Enormous steps were made in wiping out widespread discrimination, from the women’s suffrage movement leading to women’s right to vote in western countries, to the civil rights movement in the US challenging racial segregation. The political landscape has provided lots of excitement, with charismatic and scandalous presidents in the White House, the first female prime minister in the UK, dictators working to various manifestoes across the world, the Middle East conflict and the changing balance of political and economic “superpowers”. Technological advances have resulted in nigh on universal adoption and dependence on automobiles, computers, mobiles and other wireless technology. The exponential rate at which technology is evolving is one of the variables that make the twentieth century so fascinating. All this and much, much more happened in a mere one hundred years – where did we find the time to do so much? Twentieth Century History For Dummies tells all.

The Republicans: A History of the Grand Old Party

The Republicans: A History of the Grand Old Party


Lewis L. Gould’s 2003 history of the Republican Party was a fast-paced account of Republican fortunes. The Republicans won praise for its even-handed, incisive analysis of Republican history, drawing on Gould’s deep knowledge of the evolution of national political history and acute feel for the interplay of personalities and ideology. In this revised and updated edition, Gould extends this history, adding a new chapter on the George W. Bush presidency, the election of 2008, and the response of the Grand Old Party to Barack Obama. His narrative covers such contemporary figures as Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, and John McCain, as well as forgotten Republican leaders including James G. Blaine, Mark Hanna, Wendell Willkie, and Robert A. Taft. Contending that the historic Republican skepticism about the legitimacy of the Democratic Party has shaped American politics since the Civil War, Gould argues that the persistent flaw in the relations between the two parties has led the nation to the current crisis of stalemate and partisan bitterness. No other account of Republican history is as up-to-date, crammed with fascinating information, and ready to serve as an informed guide to today’s partisan warfare. Lay readers and political junkies alike seeking the best book on Republican history will find what they are looking for in Gould’s comprehensive volume.

Victorian Wedding Dress In The United States: A History Through Paper Dolls

Victorian Wedding Dress In The United States: A History Through Paper Dolls


The American obsession with weddings and wedding gowns is evident at least as early as 1850, when the March issue of Godey’s Lady’s Book included a colored plate in its feature on bridal dress. Yet brides who feed the nation’s current obsession to the tune of more than 0 billion annually may be astonished to learn how much things have changed. Fashion illustrator Norma Lu Meehan and costume curator Mei Campbell draw upon collections at the Northern Indiana Center for History and the Museum of Texas Tech University to illuminate the evolution of wedding dress in the United States from 1859 to 1899. This exquisitely illustrated work situates the white wedding dress and current perceptions of tradition within a surprisingly varied and colorful history.FROM THE BOOKWhen Americans think of Victorian wedding dress . . . we recall antique photographs and tintypes, possibly family heirlooms or those we’ve seen in museums. Though these images, like the gowns on these pages, certainly do not reflect the breadth of American cultural custom and practice, even in that era, they do reveal how much of mainstream America—particularly a rising middle class—saw itself and how it aspired to be seen. We can begin to understand how an increasingly affluent America became smitten with a British queen and with a fashion phenomenon that over the next century would become an economic and cultural force beyond imagining.

Eurovision Song Contest To Be Signed For Deaf Viewers For First Time In History

Cue the signing!

In light of Conchita Wurst’s barrier-breaking win last year, the Eurovision Song Contest has decided to include sign language interpreters during broadcasts of the massive competition. A team of six interpreters will help translate the songs into International Sign, a broad-ranging version of non-spoken language that can reach a majority of deaf viewers.

The annual competition, now in its 60th year, attracts around 180 million viewers worldwide. An estimated 750,000 deaf or partially deaf people live in the European Union, according to the European Center for Modern Languages.

“We always say that music is a language which is understood by everyone,” a spokesperson for ORF TV, the Austrian network broadcasting the contest, said. “We felt that we should make this [a] reality, and to offer music to everyone, including deaf people.”

A preview video of the contest’s signers already looks pretty epic.

Earlier this year, a video of interpreter Tommy Krångh performing a song during a Swedish singing competition went viral, thanks to his gusto and spot-on signing.

Despite that signer’s enthusiasm, Kathrin Zechner, managing director ORF TV, said the Eurovision interpreters were there to supplement the contest, not steal the spotlight, the BBC reported.

“They are supporting and interpreting for the artist and the viewers,” she said. “They are stars but they are not ego-centric; they’re spreading the emotion.”

The finals of the Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast on May 23. Nine countries — Austria, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Slovenia — will broadcast the sign language translations, which will also be viewable online.

History: Politics or Culture? Reflections on Ranke and Burckhardt

History: Politics or Culture? Reflections on Ranke and Burckhardt


Leopold von Ranke (1795-1886), generally recognized as the founder of the school of modern critical historical scholarship, and Jacob Burckhardt (1818-1897), the great Swiss proponent of cultural interpretation, are fathers of modern history-giants of their time who continue to exert an immense influence in our own. They are usually seen as contrasts, Ranke as representative of political history and Burckhardt of cultural history. In five essays, each flowing gracefully into the next, the distinguished historian Felix Gilbert shows that such contrasts are oversimplifications. Despite their interest in different aspects of the past, Ranke’s and Burckhardt’s views arose from common elements in the first half of the nineteenth century, the time in which they grew up and in which their first masterworks attracted such wide attention. This concise volume clarifies the beginnings of history as an autonomous discipline, while forcing us to examine our views on basic questions in historical scholarship. In the case of Ranke, relating his work to his times counteracts the current tendency to disregard the difference between the historical concepts of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. By focusing on this difference, Gilbert emphasizes the originality and novelty of Ranke’s ideas about history. Although Burckhardt is often portrayed as an intellectually lonely figure, this book reveals the importance of relating his thought to the intellectual trends of his time. Originally published in 1990.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Neighbors and Missionaries: A History of the Sisters of Our Lady of Christian Doctrine

Neighbors and Missionaries: A History of the Sisters of Our Lady of Christian Doctrine


The Sisters of Our Lady of Christian Doctrine community was founded in 1910 by marion gurney, who adopted the religious name Mother Marianne of Jesus. A graduate of Wellesley College and a convert to Catholicism, Gurney had served as head resident at St. Rose’s Settlement, the first Catholic settlement house in New York City. She founded the Sisters of Christian Doctrine when other communities of women religious appeared uninterested in a ministry of settlement work combined with religious education programs for children attending public schools. The community established two settlement houses in New York City-Madonna House on the Lower East Side in 1910, followed by Ave Maria House in the Bronx in 1930. Alongside their classes in religious education and preparing children and adults to receive the sacraments, the Sisters distributed food and clothing, operated a bread line, and helped their neighbors in emergencies. In 1940 Mother Marianne and the Sisters began their first major mission outside New York when they adapted the model of the urban Catholic social settlement to rural South Carolina. They also served at a number of parishes, including several in South Carolina and Florida, where they ministered to both black and white Catholics. In Neighbors and Missionaries, Margaret M. McGuinness, who was given full access to the archives of the Sisters of Christian Doctrine, traces in fascinating detail the history of the congregation, from the inspiring story of its founder and the community’s mission to provide material and spiritual support to their Catholic neighbors, to the changes and challenges of the latter half of the twentieth century. By 1960, settlement houses had been replaced by other forms of social welfare, and the lives and work of American women religious were undergoing a dramatic change. McGuinness explores how the Sisters of Christian Doctrine were affected and how they adapted their own lives and work to reflect the transformations taking place i

A Brief (Pun Intended) History of Lawyers in Movies, Part II

2015-05-06-1430953144-9680560-verdict1

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies. Enjoy, and please refrain from suing us if you feel otherwise…

1. Devil’s Advocate (1997)
Keanu Reeves plays Kevin Lomax, a hot-shot young Florida lawyer who is all about climbing the ladder. When he gets an offer he can’t refuse from a high-powered New York firm, led by the legendary John Milton (Al Pacino). Soon Kevin’s wife (Charlize Theron) is plagued by demonic visions and he realizes he’s literally sold his soul to the Devil Himself. Pacino has one of his greatest, scenery-chewing roles this clever hybrid of Rosemary’s Baby and The Firm. Although his character’s name should be an immediate giveaway for the literate viewer, Pacino’s John Milton delivers one of the great speeches in movie history about the notion of righteousness in the post-modern world.

2. 12 Angry Men (1957)
Sidney Lumet’s classic film from Reginald Rose’s script boasts an amazing star turn by Henry Fonda as the voice of reason in a sequestered jury room full of men anxious to wrap things up and go home, even if it means sending a teenage boy, accusing of stabbing his father to death, to the electric chair. A dream cast of character stars to be (Jack Warden, Jack Klugman, Robert Webber, Lee J. Cobb, E.G. Marshall, John Fiedler, Edward Binns, Joseph Sweeney, George Voskovec, Ed Begley, Martin Balsam) provide electric support to the dramatic proceedings. Although there are no lawyers present on-screen, the opposing counsels are constantly hovering in the heated debate.

3. Chicago (2002)
Richard Gere follows up his turn as a slick lawyer in Primal Fear (1994) with an even more flamboyant performance as uber-mouthpiece Billy Flynn, who has made a specialty of getting murderesses off of Death Row, the more glamourous the gal, the better. When the double golden geese of Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly present themselves, Billy literally gives a song and dance for his girls that not only exonerates them in the eyes of the law, but makes them stars, as well. Gere’s performance and his beautifully-drawn character is the ultimate satirical slap in the face to officers of the court.

4. Presumed Innocent (1990)
Harrison Ford shines in one of his few morally ambiguous roles as Rusty Sabitch, a Deputy D.A. who finds himself a murder suspect when his former mistress (Greta Scacchi) is found bludgeoned to death. As Rusty scrambles to prove his innocence, the evidence against him mounts with alarming rapidity, making this both a cautionary tale and a frightening variation on Kafka’s The Trial. Based on Scott Turow’s best-selling novel, the film adapted by Oscar-winner Frank Pierson and director Alan J. Pakula, featuring fine support from Raul Julia, Bonnie Bedelia, Brian Dennehey, and John Spencer.

5. The Accused (1988)
Jodie Foster took home a Best Actress Oscar for her incendiary performance as a working class woman who is brutally gang-raped at a local tavern. When attorney Kelly McGillis takes the case, it becomes glaringly obvious how the legal system not only discriminates against victims of sex crimes, but against the wrong social class, as well. When McGillis decides to prosecute the men in the bar who didn’t participate in the crime itself, but cheered the perpetrators on, the film takes on uncharted territory, and becomes one of the greatest legal dramas ever made.

6. The Verdict (1982)
In a legendary career, this might contain Paul Newman’s finest performance. As Frank Galvin, a washed-up, alcoholic Boston attorney whose once promising career has collapsed into chasing ambulances, Newman is alternately riveting, repellent and heartbreaking. When a medical malpractice case comes Galvin’s way, the powers that be try to buy him and his clients off with a quick and easy settlement. Seeing a final chance at personal and professional redemption, Galvin takes the case to trial, facing off against a legendary fat cat attorney (the great James Mason), and a stack of odds that are decidedly against him. Jack Warden, Charlotte Rampling and Milo O’Shea are just a few of the fine actors offering excellent support in director Sidney Lumet’s masterpiece, penned by David Mamet from Barry Reed’s novel.

7. Primal Fear (1996)
A creative writing professor I had in college had a terrific analogy for stories about protagonists who think they’re in control during the duration of a story, only to have “a hammer come out of the sky and tap them on the head” in the end. This perfectly summarizes what happens to dapper, wealthy attorney Martin Vail (Richard Gere), Chicago’s most high-profile mouthpiece, in director Gregory Hoblit’s 1996 hit. When the Archbishop of the city is brutally murdered by a disturbed young man (Edward Norton, in his star-making debut) Martin eagerly takes on his defense, knowing he’ll have an open and shut case with an insanity plea. Oh Marty, you have no clue. Fine support from Laura Linney, John Mahoney, Alfre Woodard, Frances McDormand and Steven Bauer.

8. A Few Good Men (1992)
Writer Aaron Sorkin had his first bona fide hit with this Broadway smash, which he later adapted for director Rob Reiner to bring to the screen. Tom Cruise plays Daniel Kaffee, a navy JAG corps attorney who has never seen the inside of a courtroom. When he assigned the case of offending two Marines accused of killing one of their comrades, the young men claim they did it under orders from legendary marine Col. Nathan R. Jessup (Jack Nicholson, in one of his most iconic roles). One of the best courtroom dramas ever committed to film, Cruise’s character goes from being callow and indifferent to a full-blown crusader by the film’s now-legendary climax (“You can’t handle the truth!”). Fine support from Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland and the late J.T. Walsh.

9. Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
The most controversial mainstream release of its era, Otto Preminger’s courtroom drama stars Jimmy Stewart as a small town lawyer who finds his defense for client Lt. Frederick Manion (Ben Gazzara) becoming increasingly complicated. Accused of murdering a local bartender who he claims raped and beat up his wife Laura (Lee Remick), Stewart soon finds out that Laura has a reputation for promiscuity and Lt. Manion a notoriously violent temper. Wendell Mayes’ screenplay, based on John Voelker’s novel, contained frank dialogue for the late ’50s, such as “bitch”, “contraceptive”, “panties”, “penetration”, “rape”, “slut” and “sperm.” In fact, Stewart’s real-life father was so appalled that his son had appeared in such filth, he took out a full-page ad in his local paper, urging people not to see it! While quite tame by today’s standards, the film still boasts fine performances by an expert cast, and Stewart’s masterful portrayal of a seemingly mild-mannered fellow whose determination won’t be swayed once he’s made up his mind.

10. Better Call Saul (2015)
Okay, so it’s a TV series, not a movie, but it’s a TV series that’s better than 98% of the mainstream releases that are currently filling the multiplexes, so here it joins this auspicious list. Bob Odenkirk is a revelation, reprising his role from the iconic Breaking Bad as shifty lawyer Saul Goodman, featured here in a prequel to BB, tracing Saul’s evolution from small-time Cicero, IL. con artist Jimmy McGill, to the kind of attorney whose name and likeness adorns matchbook covers and bus stop benches. As much a dissection (and indictment) of the American Dream as Breaking Bad was, with a character who is sometimes pathetic, often unintentionally comical, but utterly human in the end: an everyman for the 21st century who is more like most of us really are, as opposed to whom we’d like to be. Michael McKean is Odenkirk’s equal, playing his long-suffering, successful older brother, a legendary Albuquerque lawyer who suffers from a host of psychological maladies, as is veteran actor Jonathan Banks, as ex-cop turned dirty tricks-for-hire covert op Mike Ehrmantraut.

A Brief (pun intended) History of Lawyers in Movies

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with alaw firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Gregory Peck’s Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, causing the already-divided town’s racial tensions to boil over. Through it all, Atticus remains stoic, fair and principled, witnessed through the eyes of his precocious daughter, Scout (Mary Badham). Robert Mulligan’s film won three Academy Awards, including a Best Actor statuette for Peck, and remains a timeless classic.

2. Liar, Liar (1997)

Rubber-faced comic Jim Carrey brought his unique brand of comic genius to this riotous 1997 comedy with Carrey delivering one of his best turns as a shifty, opportunistic and very successful lawyer whose moral ambiguity would put most hardened criminals to shame. But when his young son makes a birthday wish that his father can’t tell a lie for 24 hours, his way of life comes crashing down around him. Carrey’s character literally travels the entire arc of bad guy to good guy lawyer during his revelatory rollercoaster ride, although his transformation at the end left this viewer wishing for a bit more of the bad after the final fade out, as that incarnation was a great deal more fun.

3. My Cousin Vinny (1992)

After winning the 1990 Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his turn as psychotic hood Tommy De Vito in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, Joe Pesci decided a change of pace was in order. His masterful comic turn as a Brooklyn con man who tries to pass himself off as an attorney ended up becoming one of Pesci’s most iconic turns. While trying to get his cousin (Ralph Macchio) and the cousin’s buddy off of a trumped up murder charge in the Deep South, Vinny and his gal pal Mona Lisa Vito (Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei) engage in some of the most pronounced culture clash and creative legal posturing in the history of film. Fred Gwynne is a hoot as the unctuous, old school presiding judge: “What is a ‘yute’?”

4. Michael Clayton (2007)

George Clooney gives one of his most compelling performances in writer-director Dan Gilroy’s drama about a “fixer” (Clooney) in a high-powered law firm who finds himself in a moral and professional quandary when a fellow attorney (Tom Wilkinson) in the firm has a breakdown while representing a chemical company that he knows is guilty in a multi-billion dollar class action lawsuit. As his carefully-manicured world starts figuratively (and literally) exploding around him, Clayton finds himself at a crossroads between life and death. Tilda Swinton took home an Oscar for her stunning turn as an amoral corporate counsel.

5. The Firm (1993)

Director Sydney Pollack and screenwriters Robert Towne, David Rayfiel and David Rabe did this crackerjack adaptation of John Grisham’s best-selling novel about neophyte Harvard Law grad Mitch McDeere (Tom Cruise) who is made an offer he can’t refuse by a white-shoe Memphis law firm, only to find out that he’s unwittingly sold his soul to the mob. Gene Hackman is memorable as a burned-out lawyer at the firm who represents what Mitch (and any lawyer who loses his moral compass) could become if he doesn’t wake up and smell the corruption.

6. The Verdict (1982)

In a legendary career, this might contain Paul Newman’s finest performance. As Frank Galvin, a washed-up, alcoholic Boston attorney whose once promising career has collapsed into chasing ambulances, Newman is alternately riveting, repellent and heartbreaking. When a medical malpractice case comes Galvin’s way, the powers that be try to buy him and his clients off with a quick and easy settlement. Seeing a final chance at personal and professional redemption, Galvin takes the case to trial, facing off against a legendary fat cat attorney (the great James Mason), and a stack of odds that are decidedly against him. Jack Warden, Charlotte Rampling and Milo O’Shea are just a few of the fine actors offering excellent support in director Sidney Lumet’s masterpiece, penned by David Mamet from Barry Reed’s novel.

7. Primal Fear (1996)

How was such a complete disaster avoided during the Cuban Missile Crisis? The Secretary of Defense of the United States at the time, Robert McNamara, later said during an interview: “In the Cuban Missile Crisis, at the end, I think we did put ourselves in the skin of the Soviets.” Find out about this exciting and complex period of time in this kid’s book.

The Dirty Thirties: A History of the Dust Bowl


The Dust Bowl was the largest ecological disaster in United States history, coinciding with the nation’s worst economic crisis, the Great Depression of the 1930s. Massive dust storms, combined with nearly a decade of drought, wreaked havoc on parts of Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and Arkansas. The storms were a relentless threat to the environment and the health and welfare of those in their path. The effects of the dust storms were far-reaching, impacting not just the farmers and their families, but the state of California. Many who were forced off their land viewed the state as a mecca and it became the new home for millions of former Midwesterners. However, many families stayed in the Great Plains and reluctantly turned to the federal government for assistance to make ends meet. The government’s new role as a provider of economic relief and social aid was met with gratitude by some and anger by others.

Environment, Health and History

Environment, Health and History


The environment is currently a matter of public and academic concern at national and international levels. Often, however, the environment is considered separately from health issues. This book brings together the two arenas, and sets the issues in historical context by including work from environmental and health historians as well as an introduction and conclusion by leading researchers on climate change. Individual chapters discuss the connection between environment and health at different levels, in a range of spheres, times and in various geographical locations. As a whole, the book aims to draw out the implications of the interrelationship between health and environment, ranging from the colonial setting to the domestic home.

Q-Tip Offers Iggy Azalea A Hip Hop History Lesson, T.I. & Azealia Banks Respond

A brewing battle between Iggy Azalea and fellow industry artists has found the Australian-born rapper in hot water, yet again.

Following a series of tweets responding to rapper Azealia Banks candid Hot 97 interview where she expressed her much-publicized issues with Iggy, “hacktavist” group Anonymous threatened to release “snapshots” from an alleged sex tape featuring the chart-topper if she didn’t issue an apology for her comments to Banks.

As if that wasn’t enough, veteran MC-musician Q-Tip took to his personal Twitter account on Saturday to give Iggy, and his more than 700,000 followers, a history lesson on the origins of Hip Hop and its connection to sociopolitical movements. Here’s what he wrote:

“HipHop is a artistic and socio-political movement/culture that sprang from the disparate ghettos of NY in the early 70’s Coming off the heels of the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT and approaching the end of the Vietnam war it was a crossroads 4 America specially for blacks in the US our neighborhoods were PROLIFERATED w/a rush of HEROINE.”

“Our school systems here in NY dungeon traps with light for learning… blk men some of whom didn’t return from tours of duty n the ones who did came w/war baggage (agent orange, addiction, ect..)… these men had families but due to these events and throw into the mix the public emasculation… they proved to be handicapped parents. The surrogate parents? The STREETS… the streets of gangs, crimes, and the hustlers coddled us and swept us up.”

“But! Being a spirited, rhythmic & expressive people music art dance outlined our existence… it proved a way for us to exhault to scream to dance to laugh and find OUR VOICE… we weren’t at the time skilled musicians as kids. We had records, turntables, ideas and INGENUITY being natural chemist we took from whatever was availed to us and we created something mighty and special.”

“We cut breakbeats back n forth we took a hybrid of Jamaican toasting along w/ radio jock rap( hank Spann, Gary Byrd, ect.) and we put our rap down.. it was a neighborhood thing really. Black and Latino Kids were carving out their space and it became infectious… eventually Keith Cowboy coined the phrase hiphop . Yrs later the first rap record was recorded and now we r moving.”

“But during these strides this country still had the monster of racism and racial insensitivity breathing and ruling… believe it or not young black n Latino lives specifically weren’t acknowledged in mainstream American culture unless Of course.. the convo was abt gangs , being criminals or uneducated. And hey! Like I stated early our families were rushed our schools sucked and we were left to put devices to survive… but HIPHOP showed that we had DEPTH, fire, and BRILLANCE… the music was undeniable! It moved from NY N became national and even GLOBAL.”

“Hiphop now was FOR EVERYBODY!! All of those who cld relate to the roots, the spirit, the history, the energy.. It reached YOU… it touched your spirit n took u up. We magnetized you! That’s what BRILLANCE does… now u are fulfilling your dreams … BUT! you have to take into account the HISTORY as you move underneath the banner of hiphop. As I said before… hiphop is fun it’s vile it’s dance it’s traditional it’s light hearted but 1 thing it can never detach itself from is being a SOCIO-Political movement.”

“U may ask why … Well once you are born black your existence I believe is joined with socio-political epitaph and philos based on the tangled and treacherous history SLAVERY alone this is the case it never leaves our conversation… Ever. WeAther in our universities our dinner tables our studios or jail cells… the effects still resononates with us. It hurts… We get emotional and angry and melancholy… did u know president Clinton was the ONLY PRESIDENT to apologize for it? did u know that remnants of slavery exist today thru white privilege? When certain “niceties” r extended your way because of how u look? Isn’t that crazy?”

“I say this 2 say u are a hiphop artist who has the right 2 express herself however she wishes… this is not a chastisement this is not admonishment at ALL this is just one artist reaching to another hoping to spark insight into the field you r in. I say this in the spirit of a hopeful healthy dialogue that maybe one day we can continue… I’ve been on twitter a long time and this will probably be my last series of tweets pretty much but I’m Kool with it as long as I got to share this w u. Zzzzzzz’s up! Peace!”

Following Q-Tip’s 40-plus tweets, Iggy’s label boss, T.I. also decided to jump in to share his thoughts by tweeting a followup response.



And, as expected, Azealia Banks – who has previously had a public feud with T.I. before, too — responded to the rapper’s remarks.

Mr. Turner: Movies Butchering History

This is the scene: The housekeeper, in her fifties or sixties, is fully clothed in a long dark Victorian dress and bonnet. She has her back to the camera, perhaps dusting. In strides a heavy, hulk of a man: a coarse, fleshy face, his straw-like hair askew.

He scowls at the woman, grunts something undecipherable, rams himself against her, pinning her to the wall, lifting her skirts as he does so. He thrusts again. Mutely, she submits to the brutish attack. He grunts and thrusts again. Finally, satiated, he stalks away. Not a word has been uttered.

She stares after him, without resentment, shock or horror–her homely, lined features etched with resignation. Obviously, this was not the first time Mr.Turner had had humped her; nor would it be the last.

Mr. Turner, directed by Mike Leigh, is by no means a coherent biography, but a gorgeous riveting film that presents brief, often unconnected excerpts from the latter years of the great British painter William Turner. In a way, Leigh’s lush, gauzy, cinematographic techniques, might be compared to the brilliant, infused style that Turner himself developed to create his shimmering watercolor landscapes.

The problem is I don’t know how much of the film to trust.

One of the starkest scenes, the scene that must stick in the mind of the majority of the viewers, is the one described above — where Mr. Turner — the genius in rendering light long before the French impressionists ever came on the scene — brutally attacks and has his way with his housekeeper.

In some way, that shocking scene will forever change the way those who see the film will perceive the painter. All well and good you may say. Indeed, it’s to the credit of Mike Leigh that he has given us the great Turner with all his warts and blemishes.

Except for the fact that the scene may never have happened. That’s according to Mike Leigh himself.

In a packed question and answer session following a screening of the film in at the Curzon Cinema in London, Leigh elaborated on the great amount of time and effort he and his staff had put into researching Turner’s life.

But when asked for the factual basis for Turner’s sexual attacks on his housekeeper, Leigh’s answer was along these lines: “Well, we knew that she had been living with him as his housekeeper for thirty or forty years, and.. it just felt right.” There was, Leigh admitted, no hard evidence, that Turner had regularly forced himself on the woman.

To Leigh, that seems to make no difference.

As much as I admire the talent of Mike Leigh, I can’t believe the arrogance of that reply.

The film is presented as “An exploration of the last quarter century of the great, if eccentric, British painter J.M.W. Turner’s life.” There is no indication anywhere that portions are made up, or based on what “felt right” to the director.

Yet, for millions of people who see the film, that is how they will remember Mr. Turner.

Another dramatic scene in the film may never have happened. At one point, Turner has himself lashed to the tall mast of a sailing ship in the midst of a ferocious gale, so he can directly experience a treacherous storm at sea. According to the Tate Britain–which houses a huge collection of Turner’s art — it’s most unlikely that Turner ever attempted that deed.

So, now I’m left with the question about the entire film—what was real and what was invented, because it felt right?

The people who turned out the film try to have it both ways: giving the very clear impression that it is based on fact–otherwise why would anyone be interested? While at the same time adding in pivotal scenes that aren’t. Are we to believe that they don’t have the box office as well as history in mind?

One might wonder how Mike Leigh would respond to some future biographer taking the same liberties with Leigh’s life story as Leigh did with Turner’s.

Mr. Turner is only the latest in a long list of films supposedly based “in fact” “in reality”, “on a real event, or “a true story. Driven by a mix of arrogance and cynicism, the people who makes those films count on the ignorance of the audience to make their fortunes by butchering history.

One such thriller, Argo, revealed how several Americans from the U.S. embassy in Tehran were whisked out of Iran at the height of the hostage crisis, by an incredibly brave and resourceful CIA agent. Except the real hero in the true story was not the CIA agent, but the Canadian ambassador to Iran, who sheltered those Americans and came up with the way to get them out.

But who’s going to pay good money to see a movie about a Canadian diplomat? The cliff-hanging conclusion of the film — without which the picture would never have worked — was also totally invented.

Much more egregious, as far as public policy goes, was Zero Dark Thirty, supposedly a totally factual account of how the U.S. tracked down and finally zapped Osama Bin Laden. One stark, scene showing a prisoner being water-boarded, made it clear that it was that torture that led to the biggest breakthrough in the chase: the CIA discovering the identity of the trusted courier used by Bin Laden, who ultimately led them to Bin Laden himself. According to several sources, including the latest Senate Committee report, torture had nothing to do with that breakthrough.

But try to make that point to Dick “torture works” Cheney or anyone of the hundreds of millions of people who have seen the film.

If you queried the people responsible for that film, they’d probably shrug and say something like, “it just felt right.”
