Easily-Triggered, Privileged People Have Turned Society Into Their Own Giant Safe Space
Huffington Post - 17 days
This piece by Na’amen Gobert Tilahun originally appeared on The Establishment, an independent multimedia site run by women. “Are you triggered?” white men sneer from every corner of Facebook, when confronted with political outrage or even mild disagreement. “Do you need to go to your safe space?” Rhetoric about “trigger warnings,” alerts to traumatized people that a book or film or article might exacerbate PTSD, has been twisted into a snide way of mocking people, a coded insult meant to imply someone is spoiled or coddled. Celebrities of all levels have commented: Neil Gaiman named a short story collection Trigger Warning as self-congratulation for its disturbing contents. Joe Rogan’s new Netflix comedy special is named Triggered, and Rogan said in an interview with Maxim that talking about triggers was the “anthem of the oversensitive crowd.” In the intro to her new book Buffered, YouTube personality Hannah Hart makes a specific point of saying there will be no trigger warnings be ...

Ozzy, Tipper and Judas Priest: The 1980s Was a Crazy Train, Maybe I Should've Taken the Local
Huffington Post - over 1 year
I'm of the school that states we're each allotted a certain amount of alcoholic drinks in a lifetime. It's an equation mostly based on girth, genetics and one's propensity for destruction. At fifteen I discovered my depression could be lifted by cans of Budweiser. I welcomed the relief. I was free enough to be giddy, to elicit laughter from my friends for original creative thoughts. It was 1981 and we partied to a new sound that blasted its way into the ethos of suburban New Jersey. Metal. It came in a package of light beer, brown weed and the hurling of one's head back and forth to the quick thump of rock. The musicians were Gods to us: rich, talented, drug aficionados who could party all day long and play in stadiums at night. From an education fraught with regulation we were amazed that such superheroes existed. They flipped off reporters, swigged tequila from the sunroof of limos and destroyed hotel rooms. Every effort we made to include ourselves in this energy left us more alive, ...

The Captain & Tennille: Divorcing After 39 Years
The Hollywood Gossip - about 3 years
The Captain & Tennille are getting a divorce after 39 years of marriage. The '70s singing duo filed the paperwork this week in Prescott, Arizona. Their biggest hit? "Love Will Keep Us Together." The irony. The breakup was first reported and confirmed by RumorFix. Toni Tennille, whose real name is Cathryn Antoinette Tennille, 73, and Daryl Dragon, 71, also known as the Captain, first released an album back in 1974. Previously, he was a keyboard player for the Beach Boys. Tennille revealed on her blog in 2010 that Dragon was suffering from a neurological condition similar to Parkinsons that causes him to have tremors. The couple have no children.

If Other Things Shut Down
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The government shutdown has been rough on the hundreds of thousands of furloughed federal employees and laid-off contractors. But just think how much worse it could be if other things shut down. If Facebook shut down, then fourth quarter GDP in the U.S. would probably grow by 39 percent. If Google shut down, then I can't think of a scenario in which the world wouldn't end. Ditto for porn. If Lindsay Lohan shut down, then courts, TMZ, Us Weekly, nightclubs, hair color companies, car and theft insurance companies, and the Promises, Wonderland and Cirque Lodge rehab facilities would all shut down. If the NFL shut down, then God may not exist. If coffee shut down, then Starbucks would only serve venti iced skinny hazelnut rum, sugar-free syrup, extra shot, light ice, no whip. God probably exists. If The Cheesecake Factory shut down, then enough trees would be spared on their oversized menus alone to return atmospheric carbon dioxide to pre-1990 levels.

Living Metal: Headbangers and The Witch Hunters
CNN - over 3 years
I find it so amusing when people call me a “Gen X’er” because they seem to be under the delusion that nothing happened in the 80’s. The 60’s may have woke us up from the 50’s and the 70’s exploded with a new cosmic consciousness and a sense of urban shamanic connection. But, just because we weren’t “doing it” in the middle of the road anymore, hardly means nothing happened.   As a child of the 70’s, I was too much in my own world to really pay attention to anything tangible. I played “Wonder Woman” and re-enacted the “Isis” shows under the huge, magical willow trees in our home in Fishkill, NY. We swung on tire swings in the woods, got cut, collected frogs, made music from trash can lids, and made up rules to made up games. Everyone on my little planet around me seemed to be disconnected from the immense multi-verse of my imagination where it didn’t matter that I was taller than everyone else or fatter than everyone else or weirder than everyone else. I just simply mattered. I wante ...

What I've Learned About Marriage From Editing Huffington Post Divorce
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Two and a half years ago, I embarked on a crash course in marital dissolution. As editor of Huffington Post Divorce, I immersed myself in the full spectrum of turmoil -- psychological, physical, financial, spiritual -- that comes with ending a marriage. I spent my days reading hundreds of blogs by our roster of experts (lawyers, psychologists, financial planners, and divorcees among them), writing stories on the latest divorce-related news and trends, combing through thousands of tweets and comments, and sharing my expertise on the subject at divorce conferences (yes, there are such things). While I haven’t been married or divorced myself, I’m a child of divorce (and therefore have a lot of opinions on the subject), and what makes certain marriages endure and others implode is a topic with which I’ve long been obsessed. Then, a year and a half ago, I became the editor of Huffington Post Weddings and spent over a year examining relationships from the other side, which turned ou ...

Kurt Ellenberger: Ghost Story: Something Wicked This Way Comes?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
As a jazz musician and composer who grew up in the "classic rock" era, I found myself more attracted to those groups that were working with longer forms, complicated or unpredictable harmonies, meters, and rhythms, and strong musicianship; in other words, I listened to a lot of what we now call "progressive rock." I still enjoy listening to some of that music, but I'm also always on the lookout for new music in that style. It was in that pursuit that I came across the Swedish band Ghost B.C. Ghost is a sextet (a fitting number, as you'll soon see) that describes itself as a cross of "death metal and pop music." There are certainly some elements of metal in their music, but nothing that even comes close to the skin-flaying assault of bands, for example, like  Meshuggah, Dark Funeral, and the covens of fellow travelers in this genre. The influence of the original metal band, Black Sabbath, can certainly be heard, but overall Ghost is far more "prog and pop" than it is m ...

Toni Nagy: Rick Ross as a Mirror for the Music Industry and Culture as a Whole
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
When I first heard of Rick Ross's now famous line about slipping a girl some "Molly" and having sex with her when she "doesn't even know it," in the song "U.O.E.N.E.O.," I thought it was distasteful. But I also remember feeling the same way when as an 18-year old I heard Eminem's lyrics about killing his wife -- and he won a Grammy. Many artists use the "first person" to reflect not themselves but others, or express ideas through persona. Embellishment or exaggeration does not necessarily mean that this is how an artist truly feels or acts. It seems that Eminem's creative brilliance has given him more of a pass to push these boundaries, or maybe it's that white men are able to get away with more? After all, Johhny Cash sang "I took a shot of cocaine and shot my woman down" -- and he is a folk hero. But this issue is bigger than race alone. It is easy to criticize Ross because of his perceived poser identity. Ross may be a hijacked brand made possible by the CIA when they ...

HUFFPOST HILL - Alternate Universe America Marks 10th Anniversary Of President Gore's War On CO2

Suzanna de Baca: How To Plan For Retirement After Divorce
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Chalk it up to longer lifespans, broader cultural acceptance of divorce or the effects of an empty nest, but calling your marriage quits later in life is becoming increasingly common. A study from the National Center for Family & Marriage Research at Bowling Green University in Ohio found that one in four people going through a divorce are over the age of 50 -- up significantly from 1990, when it was less than one in 10. High profile splits like Maria Shriver & Arnold Schwarzenegger and Al & Tipper Gore have illustrated this trend. But these newly single, wealthy celebs likely won't face the same financial challenges many of their divorced boomer peers will. While divorce can be detrimental at any stage of life, gray divorce can be particularly challenging on the financial front since the savings accumulation stage is well underway (or coming to an end) and assets have been amassed together for many years.

Lubov Stark, Esq: 4 Ways To Prepare For Divorce Post-Fifty
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Going through a divorce and starting over is not an easy task, especially if you have spent the last three or four decades living with the same person. A recent trend I have seen in my practice is an increase in older couples in long-lasting marriages filing for divorce. This trend is often dubbed a "gray divorce"; some well know examples include Al and Tipper Gore divorcing after 40 years of marriage and more recently, Joe and Tina Simpson after 34 years and Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman after 30 years. Because divorce is no longer considered a social disgrace, more and more older couples are deciding to take control of their lives. They are realizing that they no longer have to "settle" for being in an unhappy marriage solely because they have spent most of their lives with that person. The challenges associated with gray divorce are different than those of a typical divorce -- child support and custody, for instance. Couples going through a gray divorce often have to ...

Lois Tarter: 7 Common Reasons Boomers Split Up
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Many people were stunned when Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman announced their separation after 30 years of marriage. It seems that the more years a couple has been married, the more shocked the public is when it's over. That certainly was also the case when Al and Tipper Gore got divorced after 40 years of marriage. However, you never know the reasons as to why a couple stays together or breaks up -- whether they've been married for a year or decades. Over the years, there has a spike in the divorce rate among people "of a certain age." According to sociologists Susan Brown and I-Fen Lin in their study "The Gray Divorce Revolution" (released this past April), in the past two decades, the divorce rate has increased two-fold for people 50 and older. While it may seem better financially for an older couple to stay together, it's clear that many are choosing personal freedom over financial freedom and are moving on. We can probably list some reasons right off the bat as to ...

Chez Pazienza: Daniel Tosh vs. The Age of Outrage

There are a few subjects that I feel like I've written about so often that when they inevitably come up again, I'm at a loss to say anything about them that I haven't said before. It's one of the occupational hazards of blogging steadily for six years: You just run out of clever twists to put on the subjects you're passionate about and which inspire you to speak up and so you essentially wind up recycling all your previous points and arguments while hoping no one notices how tedious you've become. (This is known as "Greenwalding.") Among my cast of rotating regular topics, there's Nancy Grace doing something despicable, Fox News doing something unethical and not giving a damn what anyone thinks about it, and the subject I've been embroiled in an ongoing online debate over for the past few days: a comedian or entertainer saying something offensive and the whole world losing its fucking mind.

Ann Romney, Michelle Obama face off in cookie contest

AP, AFP - Getty Images Ann Romney, left, and Michelle Obama will go head-to-head in a cookie recipe contest. By Jillian Eugenios Turns out there may be a way to accurately predict the outcome of the presidential race — and the proof is quite literally in the pudding. For the last five elections, Family Circle magazine has asked spouses of the candidates to share their favorite cookie recipes. Readers then do their patriotic duty: Bake, taste, vote. Only once has the cookie test not accurately predicted which leading lady has gone on to call the White House home.  The cookie-off first took place in 1992, when Hillary Clinton's oatmeal chocolate chip cookies went head-to-head with Barbara Bush's classic chocolate chip recipe. Clinton won, and she was back at it again in 1996. She stuck to her guns with her oatmeal chocolate chip recipe, taking on Elizabeth Dole’s pecan rolls. Clinton again had a winner. Then, sweet-toothed voters baked up Tipper Gore's gingersnaps and Laura B ...

“Rock of Ages” review
Blast Magazine - over 4 years
Nothing treads the fine line between the absurd and sublime like glam rock did in the 1980s. There was makeup and elaborate hair, there were leather and studs, there were epic ballads about masturbation and arenas full of ecstatic toughs who embraced the Machine even as they were raging against it. “Rock of Ages” the movie based on the Broadway “karaoke musical,” mainly walks that fine line too. But the burden of two “Glee”-riffic leads (Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta), a bad sense of a pacing and an uneven cast of stars with varying degrees of musical talent often hurtles this barrel of jukebox fun into awkward territory. 2 out of 4 stars Directed by: Adam Shankman Written by: Justin Theroux, Chris D’Arienzo, Allan Loeb Starring: Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta Rated: PG-13 I feel bad saying anything against Julianne Hough. Her epic chipmunk cheeks are only matched by her truly impressive song and dance skills. She’s a double threat though, not triple. She seems un ...

Ice-T On 'The Art Of Rap,' Controversial Hip-Hop And 'Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo'
Moviefone Blog - over 4 years
In 1992, Ice-T was considered a menace to society. His band, Body Count, had just released the song "Cop Killer," which drew the ire of law enforcement agents, the NRA and even President George H. W. Bush. Groups tried to ban his album, Tipper Gore condemned him in public, and he was almost barred from playing a concert in New Zealand. But, as is the case with most rap-related controversies, the situation soon blew over into nothing more than a small (though no less important) footnote in hip-hop history. Since then, Ice-T has spent most of his time acting in films and television, including a recurring role as -- fittingly -- a detective on "Law and Order: SVU." Now, twenty years after "Cop Killer," the actor/rapper is returning to his roots (minus the controversy). This Friday, Ice's directorial debut, "Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap," hits theaters. The documentary follows Ice interviewing some of the greatest emcees in history -- Grandmaster Caz, Rakim, Eminem -- about ...

Inside the Political Brain

How we're built for bias in public life -- and why that makes it so hard to fix our irrational political structures. The brain defends existing beliefs as if repelling an attack. / Shutterstock Why is the American political system so irrational? Why is it that, even though a lot less partisanship and a lot more compromise would be good for the country, nobody can seem to get us there? The good news is that science is starting to figure this out. The bad news is that it seems to be fundamentally rooted in who we are -- creatures who can detect bad and emotional reasoning when others are guilty of doing it, but not so much when we're doing it ourselves. Of late, researchers in political science and psychology have been talking a great deal about an idea called "motivated reasoning" -- thought and argument that seems rational and dispassionate, but really isn't anything of the sort. Motivated reasoning is becoming a buzzword, but few have sketched out why it is such a p ...

High School Musical, Uncensored: At Spring Awakening‘s First Uncut High School Performance

Via The Beacon School. The Scene: A bunch of high schoolers, in a room full of their parents, teachers, and friends, performing a musical. In the musical, they play a bunch of teenagers not too unlike themselves. And they are simulating masturbation, unprotected sex, abortion, teenage homosexuality, teenage lesbianism, group masturbation, masochism, child abuse, insubordination, and out-and-out total adolescent rebellion, all to the rapturous tune of musical numbers with titles like "The Bitch of Living" and "Totally Fucked." Oh, if Tipper Gore could see them now. So went the very first uncut high school production of Stephen Sater and Duncan Sheik's adaptation of Spring Awakening, the unlikely 2007 musical that took Broadway by storm.
