"I feel, therefore I am." For Hector Berlioz, and for the Romantic Movement, those were more than words; they were a song of the heart. But with the unprecedented outpouring of emotion in his Symphonie fantastique Berlioz almost overpowered Paris. This orchestral sonic spectacular, written to win the heart of a beautiful actress, demanded sacrifice from its author and his audience. From romantic daydreams to deadly displays of devotion, the symphony relates an “episode in the life of an artist,” that artist being the love-obsessed composer himself. This symphony encapsulates the inner drama – and trauma – that made Berlioz one of the masters. Join Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony as they follow Berlioz to the brink and beyond in this program.

Net-a-porter on Keeping Exclusive Capsules Actually Exclusive

CAPSULE CRAZY–Another day, another “exclusive” capsule collection. If that adjective fails to excite any longer, you’d be joining a growing set of voices in that view.
Conscious of consumer fatigue and a saturation point for limited edition products, Net-a-porter is trying to reinvent the future of an exclusive capsule.
Calling it “a work in progress”,  Elizabeth von der Goltz, global buying director for Net-a-porter said, “We’ve done them for such a long time. All of them almost have to be brands–we can’t say we don’t [let them]–but we like to be the only retailer you’re doing an exclusive collection for the year.”
She continued: “We’re seeing so much out there it’s getting a bit noisy to keep it really special. Every design needs to be unique and different. It’s not just a coloration, it [needs to be] different from the past seasons,” she said.
Since von der Goltz joined Net-a-porter, collaboration highlights include the debut of a Balenciaga collection, the Fendi logo project and securing a role as Kith’s exclusive online retail partner for women’s.
“There’s so much competition than when [Net-a-porter] started,” von der Goltz said. “The number one focus is to offer the best curation, the best edit, and in the markets that we’re strong,

Release Date: October 30, 2009


Shostakovich may have secreted a subversive cipher beneath the surface of his life-saving Symphony No. 5. This is all the more shocking since another bad review from Stalin’s totalitarian forces could have meant a sentence to the Gulag or worse. After his opera Lady Macbeth was publically condemned as immoral by Pravda, the Soviet newspaper, Shostakovich knew he had only one chance to redeem himself. When he penned this fifth symphony, the composer was literally writing for his life. The risk was so high that Shostakovich slept on the stairs outside his apartment so the secret police would not wake his family when they came from him, as he was sure they would. This Keeping Score program investigates the arresting symphony that would either redeem Shostakovich or condemn him. Did he dare hide a kernel of musical criticism in what appears to be a paean to the Motherland? Join Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony as they explore the hidden language of this masterwork. What Shostakovich has to say might depend on what you’re brave enough to hear.

Keeping Secrets

At a dinner party, several of the guests were arguing whether men or women were more trustworthy. “No woman,” said one man, scornfully, “can keep a
secret.”

“I don’t know about that,” answered a woman guest. “I have kept my age a secret since I was twenty-one.”

“You’ll let it out some day,” the man insisted.

“I hardly think so!” responded the lady. “When a woman has kept a secret for twenty-seven years, she can keep it forever.”

Yuri, Piero, Noma, and Erin: Meet the Boys Keeping Public School Cool

public school male models

Who says girls get to have all the fun during Fashion Week? Public School may have already displayed their streamlined menswear looks during the New York Fashion Week: Men’s collections, but that didn’t stop designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne from adding a select few male models to their lineup for Spring. Utilizing a mix of brand favorites like Yuri Pleskun and Noma Han—both of whom have been appearing on Public School’s runway since the label’s debut—and emerging talents like newcomers Piero Méndez and Erin Mommsen, Public School’s boys provided an appealing menswear moment. Get to know the guys who brought a touch of cool to Public School’s catwalk.

Yuri Pleskun
Known for his cooler-than-thou nonchalance and bright blue-green eyes, Bronx boy Yuri Pleskun has been one of the world’s top male models for the past few years. Discovered on the subway back in 2008, Pleskun quickly became a favorite of everyone from Marc Jacobs to Steven Meisel. With his buzz cut and tattoos, Pleskun was one of the guys who helped bring in the trend toward atypical male models, and as the former face of Public School’s advertising, he was a clear choice for the show.

Piero Méndez
Since his debut opening Prada’s Spring/Summer 2015 menswear show, Spanish newcomer Piero Méndez has become an in-demand figure on the male modeling scene. With his full lips and lush curls, Méndez possesses a romantic beauty, but at heart he’s a jock. Méndez excelled as an athlete—prior to modeling, he pursued a career as a professional soccer player. Their loss: These days he’s too busy fronting campaigns for Balenciaga and Calvin Klein to become the next Neymar. Instead he spends his time traveling the world and documenting each new trip on Instagram.

Erin Mommsen
Androgynous and elegant with a memorable name, Erin Mommsen has been building a name for himself working for labels like Opening Ceremony, Kenzo, and Y-3. A skateboarder and an artist, Mommsen prefers to share paintings and drawings on his social media rather than selfies. His look has won a few very famous fans: Kanye West tapped him for his first Adidas presentation, and Lily-Rose Depp recently posted his pic to Instagram with a telltale emoji.

Noma Han
Good looks and a winning personality are a rare combination, but Noma Han is in possession of both. Signed to his agency after his photographer roommate submitted his photos, Han has been steadily working for fashion’s best and brightest since 2010. Always ready with a joke or comic backstage selfie, Han is a regular at Billy Reid, Dries Van Noten, and Public School. When asked what makes his longstanding collaboration with Osborne and Chow work, Han’s response was fittingly tongue in cheek: “Every season I think to myself, ‘Maybe this time they won’t want to use me!’ ”

But when she inherits Peace Offering, a hopeless racehorse, she embarks on a career change in order to see her late uncle’s wish to run him in the Grand National come true. But having talked her way into a job as racing secretary to champion National Hunt trainer, Jack Carmichael and moved to the West Country, Pippa finds herself faced with more daunting obstacles than even the Grand National can throw at her. And that’s before her tempestuous relationship with her new boss can be considered. Moody, fiery-tempered and particularly easy on the eye, Jack’s moral code is threatened by Pippa’s arrival. After a Christmas they would both rather forget, danger and deception threaten Pippa’s life in the country and as her time at Aspen Valley Stables draws to its conclusion she discovers Peace Offering is not the only thing she must fight to keep.

News: Experts Say Best Option Now Is Keeping Nation As Comfortable As Possible Till End

WASHINGTON—Saying there were no other options remaining and that continued intervention would only prolong the nation’s suffering, experts concluded Tuesday that the best course of action is to keep the United States as comfortable as possible until the end.

According to those familiar with its condition, the country’s long, painful decline over the past several decades has made it clear that the most compassionate choice at this juncture is to do whatever is possible to ensure America is at ease during its last moments.

“We need to accept the fact that the U.S. doesn’t have long—simply helping it pass that time in comfort is the humane thing to do,” said economist Danielle Martin, speaking on behalf of a large group of experts ranging from sociologists and historians to lawmakers and environmentalists, all of whom confirmed they had “done everything [they] could.” “Attempting to stabilize …

  • Before traveling to an unfamiliar country, always conduct background checks on each of their citizens
  • When visiting museums, beware that many works of art were hung by pickpockets to distract you while they steal your wallet

  • Bury your valuables deep within your backpack to ensure you hold up every line and immediately identify yourself as a tourist

“Unfriended” Keeps On Keeping On

Movie Review – Jackie K Cooper
“Unfriended” (Universal)

“Unfriended” is the kind of movie that shouldn’t work but does. It doesn’t have any big name (or even recognizable) stars. It appears to have a shoestring budget. And Universal doesn’t appear to be pushing it with any major press releases/advertising. Those are three strikes and it should be out but it isn’t. This little movie just keeps on pulling in the crowds.

The basic premise of the movie is that six friends are skyping/chatting on line. At first it is just Blaire (Shelley Hennig) and her boyfriend Mitch (Moses Jacob Storm). They are soon joined by Jess (Renee Olstead), Adam (Will Pietz) and Ken (Jacob Wysocki). Later another friend Val (Courtney Halverson) joins the group. There is also a mysterious unidentified person on line with them who will not identify him/herself but the input is coming from Laura Barns (Heather Sossaman). Laura is a friend of theirs who killed herself a year ago due to online bullying.

It seems Laura has some revenge in mind for her “friends”. With her powers from beyond the grave she intends to hand out some retribution and she does it in a way that makes it stretch out for an hour or more. Like Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” Laura eliminates the members of the group one at a time and the thrill is seeing who, if anyone, will still be alive at the end.

The power of the movie boils down to three factors. First, the cast of virtual unknowns are uniformly good. They bring a sense of realism to all of the actions that occur. Plus they make each of the characters stand out individually. Audiences believe that these six people are in jeopardy and are trapped in the world of the internet.

Second, most of the violence in the movie occurs in the dark or else goes by in a blur. There is much more that is implied than is shown. Plus there is impending doom from the beginning but that only raises the tension and the excitement.

Third, all of the movie takes place on computer screens, which is a place where most teens feel most at home. It is also the place where much of high school bullying takes place. The makers of this movie intended to make a timely movie and this locale seals the deal.

The film is rated R for violence and profanity.

If you like horror movies then you are going to love this one. It is smart, timely and well acted. You will be drawn into its plot from the first frame of film and will stay there until the last “fade to black”. It may look ordinary in the trailers but it manages to rise above that level in a host of ways.

I scored “Unfriended” a clicked 7 out of 10.

Only Tease – Carole keeping things hot

Only Tease - Carole

It’s looking rather snowy and cold outside, but Carole is making things hot in this Only Tease photo set. She posing outside, in a beautiful snowy scene but it has to be freezing cold out there. Not only does she take her clothes off out there but she also manages to keep her sultry smile the whole time.

In this cold photo set, Carole is wearing tiny black top, denim miniskirt and black patterned pantyhose. Nothing else to keep her warm. No knickers, no bra. And by the end of this photo shoot all that she was wearing was her pantyhose. I hope she had a nice warm coat and a cup of hot chocolate waiting for her after this shoot.

You can see all of this sexy, but cold photo set at Only Tease today. Carole was voted newcomer of the year, and her ability to keep this set sexy proves why she deserved that award. I can guarantee if you put me out there, I wouldn’t be smiling or looking sexy like she does.

The Unconventional Secrets To Keeping Your Resolution This Year

There’s no single formula that’ll guarantee you see a New Year’s resolution all the way through. But, considering that just 8 percent of people actually achieve their annual goal, there are a lot of wrong ways to go about it.

Year after year, you probably click on an article or two that offer instructions for actually making it happen this time. Conventional wisdom would have you log your progress, practice your willpower and tell others about your grand plans, in order to hold yourself accountable. Tad Waddington, Ph.D., CEO of Lasting Contribution and author of Return on Learning, suggests we look at our plan of attack for 2015 through an atypical lens if we really want to succeed. Find a few of his surprising tricks below.

Start out extremely small.
Like, miniscule. “A lot of people don’t really conceive of the problem the right way,” he tells The Huffington Post. Normally, our strategy for accomplishing a goal is to just go for it, he says. This usually leads to failure. Rather than jumping in cannonball style, Waddington says a toe-dipping approach could be one secret to sticking with it this year.

“Activation energy,” or the force that gets the ball rolling, is key. If your ambition is to shed some pounds (which is the most popular pledge, year after year), spend the first week in January exercising for one minute. “Your capabilities and your goals have to match,” Wadding explains. If you’re entirely out of shape, your plan to run a 5K by January 15 is near-destined to hit the skids. Activate your resolution by starting with something you absolutely know you can do. This “solid foundation,” as Waddington puts it, will help you follow through with next week’s challenge, which should just be a pinch more demanding than the week before. Keep up this pattern — increase the difficulty, but only by a little — and you will see results.

Make a “To-Don’t” list.
When thinking about the year ahead, you might be quick to think about what you do want. You do want to volunteer. You do want to cut down on your drinking. But at what cost? Consider your “To-Don’t” list; this will help you slow down, start small and be more realistic about your goals. Here’s a silly way to think about it: Let’s say the goal is to lose 10 pounds, and fast. There’s a simple solution — just chop off your leg. It’s one guaranteed way to shed the weight. It’s probable, however, that you don’t want to amputate a leg in 2015. Be sure when setting your goals, you don’t compromise crucial elements of your life (like your leg) for the sake of instant gratification.

Don’t shout your resolution from the roof tops.
Waddington doesn’t suggest making public resolution declarations, whether on Facebook or IRL, because you’ll inevitably feel crummy. “It is almost impossible not to slip,” he says, and the moment you feel you’ve let someone else down, you’ll fall deeper down a hole of self-criticism. You’ll have to spend more time getting out of said hole, rather than getting back on track with your goal.

Know that you can always do something.
“There are times you feel you can do anything, and there are times you feel you can do nothing — most times you’re wrong,” Waddington says. Believe it or not, this is good news. At the start of the year, you might feel amped to change. Soon, though, you’ll probably hit a road bump and experience intense defeat. Retain Waddington’s dogma and you’ll be better equipped for resilience. On certain days, you might not be able to stop yourself from going through an entire pack of cigarettes, but if you can delay taking a drag — even for five seconds — you have done something differently. You have made a change.

Know your bias.
Or, rather, recognize your very human negativity bias. We are much more likely to remember negative events than positive ones, and this behavior tends to serve as an obstacle. Waddington says we “double count” the negative and “single count” the positive. This pattern grew out of evolutionary necessity: To err on the side of alarmism led our ancestors to run when they thought they’d heard a bear. But when it comes to achieving goals, we need to even out the score. Be mindful of this tendency, so when you screw up, you can recover quickly and keep up with your progress. It’s very human to curse the things you did wrong. Remember that, then recall one thing you did right.

Focus on your breath.
This’ll quiet the critical self-talk — another one of those demons engrained in our human nature. Waddington says often it’s what we tell ourselves that’s most crippling. We can easily fall into a paralyzing “I can’t” trap, but remember, you can always do something. “If you’re focusing on your breathing, you have less of a chance to criticize yourself in your head,” he says. Not only can this mindfulness exercise quiet those internal beasts, but it can also have positive physiological effects, like lowering your blood pressure.

Have skin in the game.
“You have to give a damn,” Waddington says. “If you’re going to have a goal — no matter how small — be invested in it.” This requires forming a battle plan: Draw out your tactics, collect your weapons and fight the hard fight. This practice is reminiscent of the saying, “Do it with passion or not at all.” Your mission shouldn’t be all-consuming; it needn’t take up every second of your day. But, you should make sure it’s something you care about, and that you’re seeking to accomplish it because it is of personal importance, and not for something or someone else.
