Neil Barrett Builds His Block

MILAN — “A new chapter in my company’s story.” 
That’s how Neil Barrett described the developments at his namesake brand, which recently set up shop in a new headquarters on Milan’s Via Ceresio. The 538,200-square-foot building was part of a former electrical plant and currently houses the Dsquared2 offices with the Ceresio 7 restaurant and gym as well.
“Finally we’re able to house all the operations under one roof,” Barrett said. “I used to be in seven different buildings before and so we would always get wet during the winter moving from one appointment to the other. It kept us quite real.” 
That down-to-earth attitude is the spirit that has always guided the designer’s decisions — a low-key, steady-as-he-goes approach to growth that has enabled him to remain independent while generating revenues of more than 90 million euros in 2016.

“It’s such a pleasure to have such a big space that’s been designed specifically for every single operation in the building. It’s really tailor-made,” said Barrett.

Designed by Milanese architecture firm Storage Associati, the building, which features a faded black facade punctuated by myriad windows on both the front and the back, perfectly reflects the sleek, minimal aesthetic of the brand with its graphic combination of concrete and glass. 
“Everything revolves around this central void. The concept that I’ve always dreamed

Flying Pigs Will Block Trump Tower For One Glorious Day This Summer

Many Americans would have imagined that reality TV star Donald Trump would become the President of the United States on the day pigs fly.

Well, Trump is the president. And thanks to an upcoming project by Chicago-based architectural firm New World Design Ltd., for one day this summer, pigs will fly.

The firm, led by Jeffrey Roberts, plans to install four gold pig balloons in front of the facade of Trump Tower, for a one-day public installation titled “Flying Pigs On Parade.” Four golden swine balloons will float in mid-air, effectively concealing Trump’s name from public view. The goal is to provide passersby a brief yet glorious reprieve from seeing the omnipresent name of you-know-who, thus continuing to resist his normalization at all costs. 

Visually, the installation is inspired by the album art for Pink Floyd’s 1977 “Animals,” which itself is a tribute to George Orwell’s Animal Farm. The 1945 allegory and classic middle school read follows a barn full of farm animals to symbolize a totalitarian dictatorship built upon a cult of personality ― a scenario bearing some alarming similarities to our current political state. 

Roberts’ vision incorporates elements of Pink Floyd and George Orwell with a few additional digs at our nation’s leader. As he explained in a statement: “The references are many, from flying pigs and Miss Piggy comments to a taste for gold embellished interiors. Ultimately, this is a very rational design and is in direct contrast to the chaotic nature and bizarre antics of our current leadership.”

Roberts announced his idea for the piece in November 2016, shortly after Trump won the presidency. Recently, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters himself approved the idea, a necessity since the musician owns the image rights to his 1977 album cover.

Now Roberts’ final challenge, aside from actually building the four 30-by-15-foot golden pig balloons, is fundraising. The architects are currently collecting donations to help pay for costs including balloon fabrication, technical specialists, barge rental, rigging, prep costs, security and permitting fees. If interested, you can donate here. 

Roberts has not yet confirmed when his piece will be installed, but hopes that pigs will fly (for one day only) come late summer. The goal is to then take the pigs on the road, traveling from city to city, blocking other Trump Tower facades one day at a time.

That’ll do, pigs, that’ll do.

Bill O’Reilly On Chopping Block Amid Claim He Called Black Woman ‘Hot Chocolate’

What once seemed unimaginable now seems at least possible.

New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reported Tuesday that the Murdoch family is “leaning” toward pulling Bill O’Reilly off of Fox News’ airwaves in the middle of growing pressure from advertisers and activist groups.

The report comes amid a separate claim by attorney Lisa Bloom that O’Reilly used to call a black woman who worked as a clerical worker at Fox News “hot chocolate” during her time at the network in 2008. The television host would reportedly make her feel uncomfortable in other ways as well. 

“He would never talk to her, not even hello, except to grunt at her like a wild boar,” Bloom told The Hollywood Reporter. “He would leer at her. He would always do this when no one else was around and she was scared.”

Bloom, who said she verified the woman’s story with three witnesses, claims the woman feared she would lose her job if she complained at the time. She added that the woman wants no money, but has registered a complaint with the Fox News hotline in light of recent news about the host ― a service that apparently many female employees at the network only recently came to learn about. 

O’Reilly, who remains cable news’ most dominant figure, went on vacation last week as advertisers dropped him by the dozens following a New York Times investigation that revealed the Fox News Network and the host had paid at least $ 13 million to settle five claims of sexual harassment.

More claims have continued to surface about the host’s actions ― some of them from the most unlikely of sources.

At least 70 advertisers have decided to no longer advertise on “The O’Reilly Factor,” which remains Fox News’ biggest show by far. But “O’Reilly Factor” viewers remain committed to their host. A recent HuffPost/YouGov poll found that 65 percent of people who watch the show still hold a favorable view of him, and only 9 percent of his Republican viewers think the show should be canceled.

The show’s ratings also dropped 26 percent in the first three days he was gone, further proof of O’Reilly’s influence, both nationally and internally at Fox News. 

Sherman reports that James Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch have been arguing to their father, Rupert, that the network must rid itself of O’Reilly, but Rupert remains unsure, not wanting to appear to be bowing to outside pressure from outlets like The New York Times. 

But on Tuesday, even Matt Drudge of The Drudge Report couldn’t help but think that O’Reilly’s days might be numbered.

Rihanna ‘Disgusted’ By Donald Trump’s Attempt To Block Muslims From Entering U.S.

Rihanna is the latest star to add her voice to the conversation surrounding Donald Trump’s recent executive order, which temporarily banned all refugees from entering the U.S. and temporarily banned travelers entering the country from seven Muslim-majority nations. 

On Saturday, the pop star tweeted her disgust for the action, which also bars Syrian refugees indefinitely. 

“This is devastating!” she wrote, seemingly referring to the president as “an immoral pig.” 

That same night, a federal judge in Brooklyn, New York, put a temporary halt on parts of Trump’s executive order. Thousands of demonstrators gathered to protest the travel ban at airports across the country.

Aside from Rihanna, plenty of other stars, such as Debra Messing, Michael Moore and Alyssa Milano, expressed their anger and sadness about the executive order on social media. 

John Legend also spoke out about the issue at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday night. The Grammy winner went off-script while presenting a clip from “La La Land” to deliver a poignant speech about acceptance. 

“Our vision of America is directly antithetical to that of President Trump,” Legend said. “I want to specifically tonight reject his vision and affirm that America has to be better than that.”

Howard Street Block Party Designed to Reel in Holiday Shoppers

NEW YORK — Holiday shopping can be a competitive sport in certain New York neighborhoods but a cluster of SoHo retailers is banding together for more of a goodwill get-together.
A thousand shoppers are expected to show up for Thursday’s Holiday Block Party on Howard Street. Michele Varian, who moved into the neighborhood in 2001 with her signature lifestyles shop at 27 Howard Street, cooked up the pre-holiday event. She made sure to include an ugly sweater contest. A committee will review participants’ photographs and the winner will be revealed on Friday. Block party goers will also find select discounts and extended hours at such stores as Outdoor Voices, The Arrivals, Roll & Hill and The Affirmation, among others.
Trying to take the pajama trend to new heights, Andy Spade’s Sleepy Jones will host an attempt to break the world record for jumping up and down on a Floyd of Detroit-made platform bed. Not surprisingly, the dress code calls for Sleepy Jones pajamas.
With extended store hours until 9 p.m., Opening Ceremony is aiming to ramp up sales to benefit Kids in Need of Defense, a nonprofit whose goal is to ensure that no refugee or immigrant child deals with the U.S. immigration court

Michael Jordan’s Tune Squad Uniform From ‘Space Jam’ Is Hitting The Auction Block

Michael Jordan’s most important uniform — you know, the one he wore while saving the earth — is hitting the auction block this fall.

Starting on Oct. 1, fans of Jordan and the 1996 sports entertainment classic “Space Jam” can bid on the actual Tune Squad uniform Jordan wore during the making of the movie. Despite there being “signs of wear” and “minor staining” on the uniform, it’ll be available for bidding through online auction house Invaluable via Los Angeles-based auction house Profiles In History.

Invaluable estimates the price to fall between $ 10,000 (the starting bid) and $ 15,000, but in the past, Jordan memorabilia has been auctioned off for upwards of $ 100,000

Think you can afford it?

Granada Defender Fails To Block Goal In Worst Possible Way

Following Bale’s game-opening score, Cristiano Ronaldo proceeded to score five goals of his own, three of which he scored in a period of just eight minutes.

8 Steps to Kill Writer’s Block and Dance With the Muse

2014-09-04-writinginKip.png

I don’t believe in writer’s block.

There, I said it.

I do believe sometimes you write better than other times.

I was lucky. I grew up in the world of acting and had teachers who taught me that the creative process was not just about listening to your head, it was about listening from a different place, Sandy Miesner called it the impulse. So I learned you find the creative flow by opening the field of vision in order to listen with all of the senses.

After I left the world of acting and eventually learned about spirituality, it was great fun to discover the two disciplines had a lot in common: presence, listening, noticing the voice of the ego vs the voice of spirit.

It was Betty Buckley who opened my eyes to how to be a shamanic creatrix. Of course, she never would have used those words. I was lucky to work as an intern at the Williamstown Theater festival where she was performing. I will never forget sitting in her audience, feeling her song, and understanding for the first time the real power of performance. Betty anchored in the teaching that when you connect to the sacred through your creative act, when you step on to the stage with the intention to connect to the heart of your audience, you can have a profound impact.

I think of it as touching the void, that moment when you allow a universal truth to run through you. You surface something through your words/dance/acting/movement/song that your audience recognizes as true… they can feel it in a place that needs no words, and they experience the inner nod… because you are dancing with the muse.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Elizabeth Gilbert’s great TED TALK, The Elusive Creative Genius, where she discussed how the pressure of believing it is just you creating is enough to drive anyone insane.

But I digress. Lets cut to the chase and focus on the title of this post. If you are living in the illusion that you are creating all on your own and are feeling disconnected from the genius… I hope these tips help you break on through to the other side.

1. Stop Listening to Yourself

If what you are writing is crap, just stop.

Listen. The muse loves to play. All you need to do is be present enough to listen. She’ll come around often and lots when you stop pretending you are the only one creating.

Now that you stopped trying to create, go with the first thing that comes to mind. Even if it seems crazy and out of place, just go with it and see where it takes you. Trust.

2. Do Something That Scares You

I’m not saying jump off a cliff for heaven’s sake. I’m saying step out of your familiar comfort zone. Invite new experiences into your life. See what new conversations take place, what new material presents, what inspiration arises. (This is the quickest way to shake yourself out any kind of rut (right next to doing something good for someone else.)

3. Watch Robin Williams

When Robin died, I did what you did, started watching old videos of his interviews. He was out of control. Some of what he said was hilarious. Some of what he said wasn’t, but the fact that he said it was hilarious. For better or for worse, he didn’t censor what came through him. The result: We loved him for being his wild zany unpredictable self. We’ll probably love you for being your authentic self too… once you start sharing it with us.

3. Listen With Purpose

Imagine yourself surrounded by a muse/guardian angel. All she wants to do is inspire you, but the only way she can speak to you is through the physical things that surround you. NOW the annoying guy in the Starbucks line talking too loudly on his cell phone is about to say the title of your next book, the wind whispering through the pines is going to make you remember a sensation that explains your character in a way you didn’t dare to imagine. You get it. Everything is material. Everything. That little voice speaking…maybe it comes from behind you, inside of you, arrives in your mind’s eye…that is the muse my friend. Just take the first snipit and run like a banshee and don’t look back until you’re done. Edit later. It’s ok. Something will be in there.

4. Step Away

Everyone knows the most brilliant ideas arrive as soon as you get up to go to the bathroom. Why? Because when you’re going on and on for hours with your pals trying to create something epic, your line of vision can become so focused, it becomes narrow. So step away from what you are focusing on and allow your mind’s field of vision to expand again and let the muse in for another spin around the dance floor.

5. Leave No Pencil Behind

Walk with a notebook and pen everywhere you go. Write every little idea that comes to you. Put the ideas for new projects in a special place. Don’t think you will remember them. The muse can be fickle and can take what she offers right after she gives it. So write it all down. Right now. Before you forget. (You can use Evernote for this if you just. can’t. put. down. your. phone.

6. Do What You Love

If you’re still pretending you can’t get through your writer’s block or create anything of worth, then open up a new document, think about that other idea or concept or story idea that totally turns you on, and go for it. You’ll hate me in the morning. Why? Because you’ll stay up all night pacing with new ideas, high as a kite coursing with the passion for this new project, and write the first 17 chapters of your next book. Then you’ll have to decide which one you need to finish first. I apologize in advance. Meanwhile, you played in a river that was flowing and that was fun.

7. Leave Everything Behind And See What You’re Made Of

For an hour, for a day, for a month, for a year. Put the physical things that are taking up your energy aside. Clear all of your psychic debts. Deal with the people you have been avoiding. Clean up your physical space, and there will be so much more room for the muse and the genius to run though you.

8. Just Do It

I thought I had it all figured out until Paul Hawken (who has authored seven books) said something that stopped me in my tracks. He said something along the lines of how he just doesn’t buy it when people say “spirit wrote the book.” He said, YOU write the book. You are the one that sits down every day and writes.

I should add I also don’t believe in waiting for spirit to “move me.” It’s like meditating. It’s a practice, you show up every day and just do it. Some days are great. Some days aren’t as great. (And when spirit does come with a dose of inspiration, you know I right it down asap.)

Confession

Now I’m going to confess something. Last night I had a nightmare that this small being that I was caring for ran out into the street and was stabbed by a pitch fork. When I picked it up, there were holes throughout it’s body, but once it was in my hands, the holes healed. The whole day I was terrified that the dream was about the novel I just launched I kickstarter. I offered to give people one chapter at a time as I complete the final draft of the manuscript. (CRAZY.) I think my dream was pointing out my fear that people mike poke holes in this story that I was put in care of creating. I think of stories like that, as having a soul of their own that we have the good fortune of caring for.

It is inevitable, at some point, when you put yourself out there, people won’t care for your creation. But so what. Don’t let that stop you from creating. Most people don’t like the smell of your breath first thing in the morning either. Does that stop you from brushing? My point exactly.

The only reason anything happens is so the next thing can happen. So just keep on going and see what happens next.

Wrestling With the Wrath of Writer’s Block

Staring at a blank page and not having the words flow the way they did last week, or even yesterday, is every writer’s nightmare. Writer’s block can feel paralyzing, especially with a deadline fast approaching, and it can often leave writers wondering if they should give up on their craft. Some would say it’s a rite of passage. Others would argue it just takes shaking things up.

To help out, I tracked down willing writers of various genres who have faced the plague of writer’s block, and who were willing to share their cures or tips for preventative maintenance.

Novelist: Hildie McQueen

Writer’s Block, or “Where was I going with this” syndrome affects all authors at some point. While working on my latest book The Rancher, I became so frustrated. My poor hero, Grant Gentry, sat on his horse without a clear destination and I thought, well crud, nobody wants to read this boring crap. So I did what I normally do, I walked away from the story.

That is my secret. When you hit a brick wall, turn around and walk away. For me there’s nothing like a drive down long country roads to clear the mind and get the story back on the right path. Sometimes I even invite the hero or heroine along.

It’s amazing what drives in rural Georgia does to the characters in my head. They loosen up and start talking. Maybe it’s the fresh air, or maybe they’re afraid I’m going to kill them off?

Playwright: Everett Robert

As a playwright, the most important thing for me to write is dialogue. When I’m struggling to hear a character’s voice, I’ll often stop whatever I’m doing, turn off the music or noise and go to a coffee shop, walk around a college campus, or go to a retail store. I find that writer’s block doesn’t come from a lack of “ideas,” but rather a lack of “voice.” Listening to other voices helps me tune in my muse to the character voices I’m struggling to hear.

Novelist: Julie Benson

When I wrote Bet On a Cowboy I suffered from writer’s block. The charismatic man I loved enough to give his own story clammed up on me. My heroine wouldn’t share her internal conflict with me. I feared I’d miss my deadline for my first book written under contract. At a workshop I attended with Jayne Ann Krentz and Susan Elizabeth Phillips, they said to keep writing until the story makes sense. Trusting them, that’s what I did. When I hit the major love scene on page 137, suddenly everything made sense. I knew the answer — my heroine wanted children but didn’t think she’d ever have a meaningful relationship. I added a scene at the beginning with her checking into having a child through artificial insemination. The rest of the book practically wrote itself from there. Now when writer’s block hits I know that as long as I keep writing, eventually everything will make sense.

Fiction Writer: Daniel Sherrier

Exercise is a wonderful remedy for writer’s block. Writing, obviously, is a sedentary activity, but being sedentary is how cobwebs form in your brain. That might help if you’re writing about cobwebs, but otherwise, they’ll just get you stuck. So, go out for a run, take a kickboxing class, or even just a brisk walk might do the trick. You’ll come back to your work feeling energized, and you’ll have done something your body needs anyway. Your entire self wins — and your book does, too.

Ghostwriter and Novelist: Heather Hummel

As a ghostwriter, my clients often provide me with the basic concepts for their books, sometimes even an outline and some material. However, it’s up to me to organize and write the rest of the material to complete their book for them. To do this, and to write my own novels, I’ve always had two effective muses that prevent writer’s block.

One is cycling, as I have been known to write entire chapters in my head while pedaling on long bike rides. I see my laptop as the tool for putting the words down, but much of my writing actually formulates in my head while riding. (The trick is remembering them later when I go to type the words on my laptop.) For this reason, I tend to ride alone, so I can quiet my mind with only the whirl of tires on the pavement beneath me.

My other muse is photography. Because I’m also a land and seascape photographer, I find the cross-creative roles feed on one another. If I’m feeling stuck with a chapter, I load up my car with my camera gear and my two dogs (they make great assistants) and head out to spend time photographing Mother Nature. By the time I return home, I am always refreshed and ready to write again. Having the mix of visual and written careers keeps me motivated on both fronts.

Writer's Block

Writer's Block


They say that writers have a strong desire to get published, but they didn''t mention that the eagerness to be published could lead to madness. Unfortunately this wasn''t explained to one writer who seeks his revenge on agents, publishers, and newspaper columnists by murdering them for not endorsing or publishing his work.

Writer''s Block is a murder mystery about seven writers, one of which is the serial killer, who meets once a month for their writer''s block meetings at their local Barnes & Noble book store to discuss their writing feats and accomplishments.

Writer''s Block also delves into the trails and tribulations of what seven writers endure to get published. It will allow you to witness the tragedy of one writer''s prisoner of war ordeal, one writer''s infidelity issues, the unexpected death of one writer''s mother, and other serious issues that these writers experience.
