You know me. Come on, you know you do.   Maybe you pretend you don’t.  Maybe you clear your browser history religiously. Maybe you pretend to be aghast whenever someone even mentions the word porn in your presence.   But the truth is that you do know me.   Everybody knows Logan O’Toole, world famous porn star. Except then Devi Dare pops into my world, and pretty soon I’m doing things that aren’t like me—like texting her with flirty banter and creating an entire web porn series just so I can get to star in her bed. Again. And again. With Devi, my entire universe shifts, and the more time I spend with her, the more I realize that Logan O’Toole isn’t the guy I thought he was. So maybe I'm not the guy you thought I was either.

Simone Rocha Comes to Nordstrom: How Olivia Kim Is Reworking the Department Store Paradigm

olivia kim nordstrom

Vetements’s inky hoodie or hirsute Simone Rocha brogues, hitting the shelves of a Nordstrom near you? It’s a reality that comes to pass tomorrow as the department megalith launches Space, a new, permanent series of stores-in-store and sibling e-shop from the mind of director of creative projects Olivia Kim. The mission is simple enough: to highlight industry youngbloods, some of the best and brightest, Marques ‘ Almeida, Isa Arfen, and Faustine Steinmetz among them. They’re balanced out by a handful of more established voices like Acne Studios and Anthony Vaccarello that might have previously slipped under the radar of Nordstrom’s customers.

It’s a big move for the Seattle-based company to bank on the tastes of its clientele for newer, more offbeat labels, but one that’s backed auspiciously by the success of Kim’s Pop-In@Nordstrom series. Earlier this month the retailer posted strong second-quarter sales (poised to hit $ 20 billion by the year 2020), in stark contrast to the generally bleak landscape of department stores.

We caught up with Kim to talk about curating Space, storytelling, and why novelty is the new normcore.

When did the idea for Space first crystallize?
February. It really came about quickly, and I think that’s the name of the game with things I’ve been working on here at Nordstrom. They’ve been about super-quick turnarounds, putting things out there, and trying to test and learn from them. I have a really small and nimble team that allows me to do that, and I think Pete [Nordstrom, the company’s copresident] has done a great job in snowplowing that path for me, to say, “Hey, do what you need to do and let’s try and put some things out there.”
 
What was the selection process like for the designers you’ve chosen to feature? Or was it just a matter of “this is what I want to be wearing now”?
There definitely was a selfish tone to all of it! I wanted to be able to buy them here at Nordstrom, but a lot of them were designers I had been following since the beginning, or had been friends with since they had launched their collections, like Marques ‘ Almeida and Simone Rocha. Then there was a good mix of brands that had been established for a while and they didn’t have really great distribution here in the States—they were being sold at a couple of boutiques around the country. There was no set criteria [though]; we didn’t want to check off a box. Space was really meant to be a platform to introduce our customers to another aspect of what designer fashion could be, this advanced and emerging designer world.

How did you present the idea to the designers? Did they have any initial reservations about the undertaking?
Once we started reaching out to all these designers and meeting them in market, it fell together so beautifully. As a company, we don’t have an awareness issue—everybody knows who Nordstrom is, and I think that these designers had a lot of respect for what we were doing in the retail landscape in America. For many of them, they loved the idea of working with us, but they were intimidated by how they could work with us. They imagined we were this really big company that had all these rules and regulations. With some of these smaller designers, there’s definitely a little bit of hand-holding that we’re excited about: helping them figure out how to ship internationally, invoice, or to work on payment terms—things like that, that are basic business practices for big stores. In a way I feel like it helps them understand the business of retail in a much easier way; we’ve been able to weed out all the unnecessary stuff. So part of it was really serving up Space to be a true boutique within our department stores, to say, “We can act like a boutique, we can work with you, we can find different ways of partnering with you that feel comfortable for you.” Once we got around that, it was really easy and everything just kind of fell into place.

What is your approach to presenting more avant-garde talents, like Faustine Steinmetz, in a context that will resonate with Nordstrom’s wide customer base?
I’ve discovered that [our customers] are the most curious and the most inquisitive out there. They want and they expect more from us, so being able to present a very boutique-like setting on our designer floor with the adjacency to designers they might be familiar with—the Célines and the Saint Laurents and the Givenchys—then having this dedicated space that’s focused around younger brands that we’re incubating and putting up on a platform, to say, “This is the next generation of what’s going to be big.” All the Space boutiques will have a dedicated salesperson to help educate our customers and give them information about why we’re doing what we’re doing. I think that’s going to be a huge thing for us—bringing our customer along on that journey.

In terms of the aesthetics of Space, what message did you most want to convey?
I wanted to convey that there was a really curated environment—that it wasn’t just about having a blank canvas and then putting some clothes out on a traditional department store floor, but that everything was really considered, the clothing and the accessories, [but] also the art, the furniture. That there were elements that we could call out that were also part of a fun experience, that it didn’t only have to be this endless sea of clothing.

What about the current retail landscape made now the right time to launch this project?
I think that as the world becomes smaller and smaller because of the Internet, and because everything feels a little bit more accessible, retailers are challenged to find ways to differentiate themselves from one another. For us, it felt like a really good time to be able to say, as a company that offers products from Uggs to Alaïa, that we could offer another segment of customers this emerging advanced designer world that often can feel under-penetrated inside of department stores and traditionally becomes more of a boutique business.

From a retail standpoint, what do you see as the chief influence on customers today? Is it celebrity? Is it street style?
I think that what’s influencing retailers—or at least what I’m being influenced by—is this really authentic, genuine sense of style that people are coming out with right now. There was normcore, and now I’m feeling like everything is coming back. It’s this idea of “I’m an individual and this is how I express myself.” That comes with the mixing of brands and adding elements of your own creativity to things. That’s what feels really modern and cool to me at the moment.

A New Documentary Reveals the Brilliant, Contradictory Imagination of Nina Simone

nina simone documentary

Even if it is possible to be both frank and enigmatic, raw and refined, Nina Simone, who rose to prominence a half a century ago, spent most of her career trapped beyond the limits of her art. She did not take to imitation. Yet she sought to join with every sort of music she could find. Simone recorded jazz. She made funk. She sang Top 50 rock hits and rejuvenated folk. She was internationally lauded and resented as a performer of protest music. And she seemed to inhabit each of these genres as if it were her main vein of craft, the music that she’d been performing all her life. For an extraordinary decade, Simone was the resonant sound box of a nation in change. Then, abruptly and for several years, she vanished from the stage.

In What Happened, Miss Simone?, a smart new documentary by Liz Garbus available today on Netflix, the brilliant, sometimes contradicting layers of Simone’s myth get peeled back to reveal the even more brilliant, contradictory imagination at its core. The movie’s title, taken from an essay by Maya Angelou, gestures toward a question that continues to haunt especially the troubled, crazy years of Simone’s later career. If most Behind the Music-style movies trade in stories of creative martyrdom—underneath the genius is a vulnerable, broken person—Simone’s biography offers one twist more. Underneath the vulnerable, broken person, it turns out, there was a genius. Simone’s slow effort to get to that far shore of her creative mind is why her recordings are today still daring and direct.

Nina Simone was born Eunice Waymon in the mountainous west of North Carolina. She began playing the piano at four, to accompany revival meetings in the church where her mother was a preacher, yet her path from the black church tradition to the recording studio was more circuitous than that of many people in the segregated South. Weekends, she would cross the railroad tracks to the white part of town, to study classical piano with a teacher who had offered her free lessons. She loved it. “I studied to become the first black classical pianist in America, and that was all that was on my mind,” Simone later explained. Her teacher raised a small cache of money for her—it was known as the Eunice Waymon Fund—and, at seventeen, she left North Carolina, first for New York City, and then for Philadelphia, home to the Curtis Institute, perhaps the leading music conservatory in the country. Curtis rejected Eunice, which puzzled her, until she realized that it was due to the color of her skin. “I never really got over that jolt of racism,” she said.

Desperate because the Eunice Waymon Fund had run out, she found a job playing the piano at a bar in Atlantic City. She was told that if she hoped to keep it, she’d have to sing, too—something that she’d never done. Afraid that her mother would learn that she was performing “the devil’s music” (pop), she gave herself the performing name Nina Simone.

Yet audiences loved her. In the late fifties, Simone had begun to record some of the songs for which she’d become known in clubs, including “My Baby Just Cares for Me,” a forgotten show tune that, years later, had a second life in a Chanel ad, and “I Loves You, Porgy,” which first put her on the map. In 1960, Simone was booked into the young Newport Jazz Festival—her first big break—and began making screen appearances around the same time. Garbus’s documentary shows us Simone performing her early hit in the harem-like lounge of Playboy’s Penthouse, the short-lived Hugh Hefner television special. Simone gives the song’s lyrics particular weight, as she always did, though it isn’t hard under the circumstances (“Don’t let him take me / Don’t let him handle me / With his hot hands”). Hefner seems oblivious to the irony. By 1963, Simone achieved her first life goal, performing a landmark concert in Carnegie Hall. Still, the victory was bittersweet—she would have preferred, she wrote her mother, to be playing Bach.

The restiveness of Simone’s musical taste, the way that, in performance, she always seemed to reach for something harder, stranger, and truer, was unmistakable even to those who did not notice when she turned a blues piano solo into a cadenza of two-part counterpoint or played one song while singing another (a gesture of wild avant-gardism and two-track genius that amazed even Miles Davis). “Nina had a wonderful way of taking a piece of music and not interpreting it but metamorphizing it, morphing it into her experience,” Al Schackman, the jazz guitarist who was her lifelong friend and musical collaborator, says in the documentary. The most enduring of Simone’s music may be her performances of the jazz canon. In her hands, a standard like “Love Me or Leave Me” became definitive. There is surely no more perfect recording of “The Other Woman” than Simone’s eerie, introspective rendition; her performance of “I Put a Spell on You,” which rivals Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’s, and cuts to the wild heart of the song. And which is the better version of “Just in Time”—her light-heeled, anthemic Paris version or her edgy, ecstatic performance at the Village Gate? Most musicians are lucky if they can get inside a song enough to cut one perfect track, but Simone seems to have done nothing else, across a range of styles. In her hands, the clunky waltz of “Mr. Bojangles” became a heartbreaking ballad; her recording of “Here Comes the Sun” has more early-morning light in it that even the Beatles’s.

For a few years, Simone was able to enjoy the benefits of her musical range. She’d married Andrew Stroud, a vice-squad cop who quit the force to act as her manager. Stroud excelled at bringing in opportunities, and the couple bought a lovely house in Mount Vernon, New York, where they began to raise a daughter, Lisa. By the middle sixties, though, the marriage had begun to fall on strange, hard times. Simone, by her own account, came to resent Stroud for working her as hard as he did. He became physically abusive. (In one case, according to Simone’s letters and diaries, which are quoted through Garbus’s documentary, he raped her.) “I think they were both nuts,” says their daughter, who is also an executive producer of the film. “She stayed with him. That’s like playing with fire.”

By the late sixties, Simone had discovered politics—and carried it to a daring extreme. She was an early voice of the burgeoning civil rights movement, surrounding herself with a range of brilliant writers and thinkers. (In Mount Vernon, she lived next door to Malcolm X’s family.) As a young woman, Simone had largely avoided racial discussions; she’d been raised to think of race as an unfit subject and, anyway, she had aspired to join the world of white piano virtuosi. In the sixties, though, she increasingly began to celebrate her African-American heritage through song. In 1965, she released an incantatory recording of the spiritual “Sinnerman.” Many of Simone’s political songs, which she wrote herself, have become classics: Her 1964 hit “Mississippi Goddam” proved incendiary, even as it turned her into something of a movement hero. “She was kind of the patron saint of the rebellion,” the critic Stanley Crouch recalls.

As the assassinations of the decade intensified, and politics turned dark, Simone grew increasingly militant and single-minded. If she knew how to operate a gun, she said, she would be shooting people; since she didn’t, she sang, and what she sang alienated her from timid white audiences. As Simone’s performance repertoire became thick with protest music, she had trouble booking gigs. When she did perform, her behavior was erratic: She would shout at audience members, or walk out if she didn’t like what she saw. “People think that when she went onstage, that’s when she became Nina Simone,” her daughter says. “My mother was Nina Simone 24/7, and that’s where it became a problem.”

After suffering a kind of nervous breakdown, tempered only by deep bouts of depression, Simone simply disappeared: She left her husband and daughter, who had little idea where she had gone. In 1970, she landed in Barbados (a louche chapter not addressed in Garbus’s film) and then Liberia, to which she summoned her daughter, who lived with her a year before finding her unendurable and returning to the United States. Simone said that she loved Africa; it felt to her like a beautiful nation of her people. Yet she stopped playing music there, and soon ran out of money. She gave a comeback concert at the 1976 Montreux Jazz Festival—perhaps her finest, strangest performance ever—and then disappeared again. Some years later, her friends discovered her in Paris, living in a hovel, dressing in raggedy clothes, and playing in a small café for 300 dollars a night.

A small group, including Schackman, tried to get her on her feet again, beginning with a psychological evaluation; Simone, at last, was diagnosed as bipolar. In the Netherlands, where she was set up with a new apartment, Simone was put on a medication that helped her regain emotional equilibrium, even as it brought about a slow decay of her voice and her motor skills.

It’s tempting to regard this long late phase of Simone’s career, from the seventies until her death, in 2003, of breast cancer, as a sad coda to her glories of the sixties. But the truth is that the music that she made is some of the most revelatory of her career. Onstage at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1976, Simone was meandering and a little nuts, a woman who had clearly come apart. Yet despite this internal chaos, or perhaps because of it, the show she gave seemed to break through to a new place in vocal music: one that transcended style and convention, that presented music not as entertainment but as public introspection. Her rendition of “Feelings,” the artifact of seventies schlock, is a master class in her approach, a lesson in the way that she could strip away the slick exterior of a song and rebuild it from the inside out.

Simone’s performance here, if “performance” is even the word, is so direct and candid, so supple in its flickers between self-disclosure and postmodern play, that it still seems brazen. At the time—an era caked in the artifice of glam rock and the ginned-up intimacy of the guitar ballad—it would have been the rawest thing on the airwaves, if it had ever made it there. Instead, it became something better: a standard to reach for. The stretching continues. Simone’s best work was the music of a future that, today, we’re still hoping will come.

Jimmy’s Hall Official Trailer 1 (2015) – Barry Ward, Simone Kirby Movie HD

In 1921 Jimmy Gralton’s sin was to build a dance hall on a rural crossroads in an Ireland on the brink of Civil War. The Pearse-Connolly Hall was a place where young people could come to learn, to argue, to dream… but above all to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its socialist and free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close. A decade later, at the height of the Depression, Jimmy returns to Co. Leitrim from the US to look after his mother and vows to live the quiet life. The hall stands abandoned and empty, and despite the pleas of the local youngsters, remains shut. However as Jimmy reintegrates into the community and sees the poverty, and growing cultural oppression, the leader and activist within him is stirred.

Lacey Duvalle, Simone

Lacey Duvalle and Simone are rather gorgeous dark lesbians, and they are all over each other from the start of this vid all the way to the end. Their boobs get played with first, with Lacey lowering her head and working her tongue all over her nipple. Simone just throws her head back and moans at the top of her lungs before they end up taking off their underwear and going for the grand finale of dark slit licking. These models are just out of this world for sure. I would love to bang either one of them.

Chocolate Sistas

Simone Sonay, Sonny Hicks

Sonny Hicks can’t resist the charm and allure of his teacher so he agrees to come over to her house to tutor her son in history. But what really happens is some off-campus teacher and student fucking! Sonny jams his fingers up Simone Sonay’s cooch and wiggles his tongue in there to taste her. Simone, in turn, whips out his long prick and sucks that fleshy bastard but what she really wants is to taste some young guy booty! Bending him over, she laps up his anus crack lovingly while tugging on his pole. Simone waxes that anus like a pro and gets powerfully banged on the couch afterwards!
