A Brief History of Doctor Strange and His Relationship with Tibet, Occultism, and Buddhism
Huffington Post - 4 months
In 1963, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko introduced Marvel's Doctor Strange, a "different kind of superhero" who practiced Occultism and held quasi-Buddhist views that he learned from an "Orientalized" figure named the Ancient One. What can a half-century's worth of this odd superhero's comic books tell us about representations of the "mystic East" in American popular culture? According to comics historian Bradford W. Wright, quite a bit: Just as each generation writes its own history, each reads its own comic books. The two activities are not unrelated, for comic books are history. Emerging from the shifting interaction of politics, culture, audience tastes, and the economics of publishing, comic books have helped to frame a worldview and define a sense of self for the generations who have grown up with them ... To critically examine the history of comic books is to better understand the changing world ... as well as the historical forces intersecting to shape it. (2001, XIII) ...

The Growing Pains of Robin Thicke
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It's always fascinating when white people discover other white people who pass for black, especially when the discovery comes late in their existence. Robin Thicke's journey to mainstream stardom has been similar to many ethnic musicians who have already been quite established in their genre. I can only imagine the bio redundant questions Robin has had to answer in the past few months and assume it can be somewhat insulting to his evolution. It's as if some Adam Levine fans are wondering how they overlooked him. Mentioning the cloth of Boz Scaggs, Tina Marie and Jon B for skin texture comparison will at least make him raise an eyebrow in acknowledgement of fine fabric, but mundane comparisons to Justin Timberlake are stereotypically inaccurate to Robin's core audience and the instrumental producer they've shared for years -- Pharrell Williams. Pharrell, Robin and Justin all understand the blurred lines of surface and substance. They pivot within the construct of different appeals w ...

2011-2012 Drama League Awards Nominations
The Faster Times - almost 5 years
The Drama League Awards bills itself as the oldest theatrical honors in America.

With those caveats in mind, here are the 2011-2012 nominations: DISTINGUISHED PRODUCTION OF A PLAY Clybourne Park Walter Kerr Theatre Jujamcyn Theatres, Jane Bergere, Roger Berlind/Quintet Productions, Eric Falkenstein/Dan Frishwasser, Ruth Hendel/Harris Karma Productions, JTG Theatricals, Daryl Roth, Jon B.

Jon B. Lovelace, who led American Funds group, dies at 84
LATimes - over 5 years
<a class="fplink fp-151070" href="/jon+b">Jon B.</a>. Lovelace, long-time head of the Los Angeles-based American Funds mutual fund company, has died. He was 84. His family said Lovelace died of natural causes at his home in Santa Barbara on Wednesday. Lovelace is credited with some of the key innovations that helped set the stage for American Funds' explosive growth from the 1980s through the mid-2000s, as it became synonymous with successful buy-and-hold stock investing. The funds' parent firm, Capital Group Cos., now manages about $1.2 trillion in all, most of that in 33 mutual funds owned by tens of millions of Americans. The company’s huge flagship funds include Growth Fund of America and Investment Co. of America. Lovelace also nurtured an egalitarian environment at Capital, the polar opposite of the authoritarian regimes of many Wall Street firms. His daughter, Carey, once referred to him as a “Buddhist businessman” who disdained hierarchy and personal aggrandizement. ...
