Conversation with Adam Parfrey (Part Two)
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Publisher Adam Parfrey was in town a few weeks ago for the Brooklyn Book Festival. I caught up with Adam at his hotel room to discuss the history of his publishing imprints Feral House and Process Media as well as several other things. Since the 1990's Feral House has always been one of my favorite book publishers due to my active interest in the occult, forbidden sex, political corruption, macabre photographs, drugs, obscure music cultures and buried truths among other commonly unclassifiable subjects. Parfrey has always had his eye on the next hidden story. This is part two of a two part interview for Huffington Post. You can read the first part here. I encourage you to do so to get the most out of your time with us. MLN: It seems like the Feral House does one thing and Process does a completely other thing, but they still seem like they're connected, to me, because they're both non-fiction, a little fringe, you know? Did you get the name for Process from The Process Churc ...

James Ponsoldt: The 25 Best Coming-Of-Age Films Ever
Huffington Post - over 3 years
25. BIG WEDNESDAY: Good friends, giant Malibu waves, and Vietnam. Perfect movie combination. John Milius wrote and directed this beautiful 1978 film, and -- for whatever reason -- it doesn't seem to get nearly enough recognition (it's far more grounded and realistic than his '80s offerings, which include "Red Dawn"). The film is a real stunner, and Gary Busey gives one of his finest performances (for me, it's up there with "The Buddy Holly Story"). 24. APARAJITO: The second in Satyajit Ray's stunning "Apu Trilogy," which has always felt like a Bengali cousin to Truffaut's Antoine Doinel films. Made in 1956 (years before Truffaut's first film), "Aparajito" is one of the most timeless and pure coming-of-age films I know, and one of the most painful -- it deals unflinchingly with grief over the loss of a parent, and manages to gracefully depict a child's loss of innocence and awareness of mortality. Apu is a different person at the end of "Aparajito" -- alive, but scarred by l ...

Ellen Snortland: Broad Appeal Reveals the Invisibility of Older Women
Huffington Post - over 3 years
An affable, funny and friendly woman by the name of Sam Dawson has compiled a book that deserves your attention: Broad Appeal: Wit and Wisdom from Women Ages Sixty to Ninety. When is the last time you've had a meaningful connection with a woman over 60 with whom you're not related? Sam Dawson is out to change the invisibility of "broads" over 60, and she's made a good start. She's also a connector and salon maven, but more about that later. When I taught the "Media, Culture & Identity" course at Cal State Los Angeles, I'd screen movies that were provocative and inclusive of invisible characters missing from the general movie and TV landscape. I used to joke with my students that if aliens landed and were to judge the population profile of the earth based on the characters depicted in our entertainment, they would logically conclude that: We have sufficient population control, not through birth control but through white men killing everything in sight... except each ...

John D. Haeger: Uncertainly Rules But Core Missions Remain
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
A recent conversation among academic and corporate thought leaders emphasized the traits required for survival in higher education today: flexibility, adaptability and resilience. Was it a discussion about students or institutions? Yes. Students, the contemporary thinking goes, must become lifelong learners. They will shift jobs and careers, constantly pivoting to face new demands for highly specific expertise that keeps pace with rapidly changing technology. They will find institutions that can address these needs, or they will turn elsewhere. The students are not alone. In a way, colleges and universities also are taking on the traits of lifelong learners as they enter the same uncertain territory. Institutions today are striving to adapt to technology-driven change while appealing to market-driven customers. That's slippery ground, considering that fundamental change to academic processes must be seen through a historical lens, coming only in increments ...

Steve Karras: Groucho Gave Secretary High Marx: Author Steve Stoliar Recalls His Days as Groucho Marx's Secretary
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Steve Stoliar and Groucho Marx In January 1974, a 19-year-old UCLA student named Steve Stoliar started The Committee for the Rerelease of Animal Crackers to pressure Universal Studios into releasing the Marx Brothers' 1930 black-and-white film, which had been in copyright limbo for at least two decades. Executives at Universal were more concerned with their recent releases, Airport 75 and Earthquake, than they were in untangling the legal knots necessary to re-release a 44-year-old movie. "I probably discovered the Marx Brothers when I was in high school and I wondered where they had been hiding all my life," Steve Stoliar said in a recent interview with us. "They were such a wonderful blend of physical comedy and clever wordplay -- either Groucho's wordplay or Chico's mangling of the language." Marx mania swept college campuses in the late '60s and early '70s. Their anarchic shenanigans resonated with baby boomers who weren't even alive when the Marx Brothers wer ...

Morgan Stanley: 'Time To Buy Corn' (CORN)
Business Insider - over 4 years
When last we check in on corn, the USDA had announced the second-largest corn planting season ever, sending prices into a tailspin. Today, Morgan Stanley's Hussein Allidina says a rebound is imminent.  "We note that, with the exception of Minnesota, the cornbelt states in better-than-average condition are also the states in the lowest quartile of both yields and annual production," he writes. "The three highest-yielding corn states in the US (Iowa, Illinois and Nebraska) all have crops with Good/Excellent ratings at least 5% below their respective 5-year averages." Corn is currently trading around $6.10 a bushel. But Allidina says dry conditions could elicit a negative production surprise that would send the December contract near $7. "While we continue to model 2012 corn planted area at 95.4 mln acres, we note that even with higher acreage, yields will need to perform to keep US supplies adequate...a 155 bu/acre yield — the third highest yield ever seen in the US — on 96 mln ...
