Adidas Releases Arkyn Sneaker With Gender Talk, Kendall Jenner Visit

MANY HATS — To launch its new shoe, called Arkyn, Adidas staged a discussion centered on women and the different hats they wear, the latest example of how sneaker brands are muscling into female territory.
Kendall Jenner showed up at the end of the conversation, which took place in a back room of the Adidas flagship in the Marais district of Paris, with a small gathering of a mostly French and largely female audience.
Jenner’s arrival was announced by a noisy crowd outside the store that had gathered for a glimpse of the model and social media star.
“I know how to say bonjour,” she said. “That’s pretty much it,” she added, referring to her French language skills.
She joined Daniëlle Cathari, a 23-year-old Dutch designer who is working with Adidas Originals, launching the second drop next week on the small stage.
“I’m super excited for you,” Jenner said, addressing Cathari who had just outlined her swift career rise to the audience.
Cathari, who learned how to sew from YouTube clips and was discovered by Adidas on Instagram, reconstructed vintage Adidas tracksuits while studying fashion in Amsterdam, a project that has landed her an official collaboration with the sportswear brand. While her design career is taking

Fashion Illustrator Jeanette Getrost Plans Phone Cases, Packaging, Talk at Camp David

BETWEEN THE LINES: In New York for a Q&A at Spring Place and a happy hour at Camp David in Brooklyn on Thursday, Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator Jeanette Getrost discussed how the medium is coming back to life.
About 20 will be at the NYFW event at Spring and the crowd will be considerably livelier at Camp David, the co-working space for creatives started by Milk Studios’ Mazdack Rassi and Erez Shternlich. Getrost chalked up the renewed interest in fashion illustration to social media giving artists a platform to get their work out. In addition, “People get a little tired of new media and have this yearning for the past and they want things to be handmade. You can see the same Instagram posts on a daily basis but with artists they are creating something new that you’ve never seen before.”
A few years ago she worked for “Project Runway” one season, sketching the winning looks from each episode for a social media campaign. Next week she will be live sketching at a Ferragamo event in Los Angeles. Getrost, whose work can be found on Absolut Art, also has a line of phone cases coming out with Fifth & Ninth, and she recently

Proenza Schouler Founders Talk Paris Move for Creativity’s Sake

NEW YORK — After 15 years of personal and professional partnership, Proenza Schouler founders Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez seem close to becoming a single creative entity.
It’s impossible to tell who drew which sketch for their most recent collection and they even dress in a similar, staunchly normcore fashion; like Larry David, if he were a young aesthete. During Thursday night’s talk with former CNN host Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of Art here as part of the museum’s “Atelier With Alina Cho” series, McCollough dressed in a red pullover and black Adidas Gazelles, while Hernandez wore a black pullover and black Nike Air Force 1s. They had on almost identical charcoal skinny jeans.
This “morphing,” as McCullough put it, started in design school and probably lent itself to what seems to have been a conflict-free decision to move their runway presentations to Paris after spending their entire careers in New York.
“It was bittersweet for us to leave New York,” McCollough said. “I think New York is so good at fostering the young and up-and-coming and I think if we’d lived in one of the other fashion capitals, we wouldn’t have necessarily had the same opportunities that we had being

Vashtie Kola, Cara Santana Talk Upcoming Projects at Rochas Show

NEW TRICKS: The multitalented Vashtie Kola has turned her hand to a new medium lately. The New York-based music video producer, artist, designer and DJ has added rapper to her list of talents, featuring on Tate Kobang’s “Ready,” released last month and produced by Swizz Beatz.
“It’s the first time I’ve really done music, it was a real out-of-body experience because I normally don’t use my voice in that way,” said Kola at the Rochas show Wednesday afternoon. “I can write, and I can draw and paint and use my hands, but when it comes to using your voice it’s a whole other dynamic.”
For early next year, meanwhile, she has a design collaboration coming up with rapper Nipsey Hussle. To be co-branded under her Violette label and Hussle’s Marathon Clothing, the line will have an East meets West Coast vibe and a Nineties esthetic.
“It’s a time when both coasts were sort of warring with each other but internally having their own issues,” Kola said. “I represent New York and he represents L.A.”

NBA MVP Russell Westbrook to Talk Fashion at 92Y Book Launch With Rizzoli

WESTBROOK’S FAN BASE: The NBA’s two-time MVP award winner Russell Westbrook will be the first athlete to get the grilling from Fern Mallis at 92Y.
The stylish point guard will take to the stage Sept. 11 during New York Fashion Week. The Olympian will be talking up his new Rizzoli-backed book “Russell Westbrook: Style Drivers,” which is due out early next month. Westbrook teamed with artist Raymond Pettibon for the cover’s combo of sports and fine art. After brainstorming with Westbrook in March, Pettibon, an avid sports fans, wound up doing three different covers, the endpapers and chapter openers.
Admittedly, the Q&A is “somewhat of a departure and a little stretch” for Mallis, but she was game after Rizzoli’s publisher Charles Miers suggested the idea. She has also met the six-time NBA All-Star here and there at fashion shows. “We’ve run into each other in the city. I like him,” Mallis said. “And I grew up in a basketball family. I love basketball. Being a New Yorker, the Knicks are my team. But my dad was a basketball coach in his early youth, and my cousins were all [taller than] six feet and they played basketball.”

NEW YORK — West Coast designers were well represented Tuesday night at the U.S. regional finals of the International Woolmark Awards here.
Zaid Affas, who is based in Los Angeles, and Chris Bevans of DYNE, which is based in Portland, Ore., scored the top prizes for women’s wear and men’s wear, respectively, at the U.S. regional finals. Both will compete in the international finals in January.
“It was a tight race. It always results in a conversation,” said Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, discussing the judging process that took place Tuesday at NeueHouse Madison Sq.  “Men’s was unanimous and women’s was a close race,” said Kolb.

Young Royals Launch Global Academy, Take Part in Radio Talk Show

ROYALS ON THE RADIO: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry to launch a school called the Global Academy in West London on Thursday.
The royal trio headed to the school in Hayes, London, met with students and took part in a Heart radio breakfast show, broadcast from the Global Academy. The talk was held with students — and Spice Girl Emma Bunton — and focused on topics pertaining to mental health.
During the talk, the duchess said the first conversations about mental health should start when children are young. She suggested starting “these conversations from a much earlier age but through play, even if their language hasn’t yet developed.”
She also addressed loneliness: “Yes, it is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated but actually so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through. It is being brave enough…to reach out to those around you.”

RHONY Feuding Got So Bitter the Ladies Didn’t Talk for ‘a Month’ — and One Star Nearly Quit

The Real Housewives of New York are about to take another bite out of the Big Apple — but not without a little hesitation.

Dorinda Medley tells PEOPLE Now that she was hesitant to return for season 9 of the series after facing accusations of drug use from her cast mates.

“I think the whole season hampered a lot of us from coming back to the show,” admits Medley. “I don’t think it was just one thing. I kind of left the show last year feeling like it was quite dark.”

“It’s one thing when you have the controversy and then you have the resolution and you have all those whacky moments,” she explains. “But, it was dark.”

During the season 8 reunion, Sonja Morgan and Bethenny Frankel accused Medley of using cocaine. “Everybody knows you do drugs,” charged Morgan.

In response, Medley said, “I don’t do drugs. How would I do all these drugs when lives with me? I’m home every night.”

“Usually after the reunion, everyone goes to dinner and they have a great time. Everybody just like slithered out of there, we didn’t even speak to each other for a month,” Medley explains of the aftermath.

Duchess Kate Says We Need To Talk About The ‘Stresses And Strains’ Of Parenthood

The Duchess of Cambridge knows the emotional challenges women can face when they become mothers. 

On Thursday, the former Kate Middleton delivered a powerful speech about motherhood and mental health at the launch of a series of educational films from the charity Best Beginnings. Titled “Out of the Blue,” the series covers topics like mental health during pregnancy, bonding with your baby and postpartum well-being.

“Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience,” she said. “However, at times it has also been a huge challenge, even for me who has support at home that most mothers do not.”

The duchess and her husband, Prince William, are parents to 3-year-old George and 1-year-old Charlotte.

“Nothing can really prepare you for you the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother,” Kate said in her speech. “It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love and worry all mixed together. Your fundamental identity changes overnight. You go from thinking of yourself as primarily an individual, to suddenly being a mother, first and foremost.”

She continued, “And yet, there is no rule book, no right or wrong — you just have to make it up and do the very best you can to care for your family. For many mothers, myself included, this can, at times lead to lack of confidence and feelings of ignorance. Sadly, for some mothers, this experience can be made so much harder due to challenges with their own mental health.”

The duchess cited some statistics about the number of women who face mental health challenges during pregnancy and after giving birth. Although it is quite common, many mothers struggle to speak out about their issues due to feelings of fear and shame, she noted.

“Some of this fear is about the pressure to be a perfect parent ― pretending we’re all coping perfectly and loving every minute of it,” Kate said. “It is right to talk about motherhood as a wonderful thing, but we also need to talk about its stresses and strains. It’s OK not to find it easy, and asking for help should not be seen as a sign of weakness.”

She added, “If any of us caught a fever during pregnancy, we would seek advice and support from a doctor. Getting help with our mental health is no different. Our children need us to look after ourselves and get the support we need.”

To promote mental well-being, Kate suggested parents first turn to friends or other people they trust to talk out their feelings and have conversations about mental health in everyday life.

In honor of Mother’s Day, which the U.K. celebrates this weekend, she concluded her speech with a call for everyone to honor moms and the important roles they play in their families.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have committed themselves to promoting conversation around mental health and breaking down the stigma of mental illness. In 2016, they launched an initiative called “Heads Together” and frequently visit organizations dedicated to providing mental health support

In her speech on Thursday, Kate also recognized the attacks that took place on Wednesday. 

“I know you would all want to join me in sending our thoughts and prayers to all those sadly affected by yesterday’s terrible attack in Westminster,” she said. “We will be thinking of all the families, as we discuss the important issues we’re here to talk about.”

Chris Evans Was Warned Not To Talk About Trump, But Does It Anyway

He’s the Captain now. But perhaps not for long. 

A new profile from Esquire claims Chris Evans will step away from his role as Captain America after his contract is up following the “Infinity War” movies. So in perhaps one of his last acts as Cap, the actor is taking on the Trump administration and its extremist supporters.

In the interview, Evans reflects on Donald Trump’s presidency, saying he feels “rage” and “fury.”

Recently, Evans has gotten in arguments on Twitter with former KKK leader David Duke, and just this week gave his opinion on Rep. Steve King’s recent tweet about “somebody else’s babies,” which is seen by many as a white nationalist sentiment.

Apparently “advisors” have warned Evans that speaking out on politics is “risky” given the high profile of his on-screen persona, but like a true Captain America, the actor refuses to remain silent.

Why? He wouldn’t be able to look in the mirror.

“Look, I’m in a business where you’ve got to sell tickets,” he says. “But, my God, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror if I felt strongly about something and didn’t speak up. I think it’s about how you speak up. We’re allowed to disagree. If I state my case and people don’t want to go see my movies as a result, I’m okay with that.”

Even with his strong views, Evans explains that though some may believe that it’s “time to yell,” he has the opposite approach.

“It’s time for calm. Because not everyone who voted for Trump is going to be some horrible bigot. There are a lot of people in that middle; those are the people you can’t lose your credibility with. If you’re trying to change minds, by spewing too much rhetoric you can easily become white noise.”

Evans’ approach can be seen in his argument with David Duke. Even when faced with ignorance, the actor preached love:

Whatever Evans’ future is with Marvel, he’ll always be Captain America to us.

Will.i.am, Farfetch’s José Neves Host Talk on Fashion, Technology and Artificial Intelligence

TECH TALK: “Technology is disposable,” said Will.i.am during a talk at Sotheby’s in London’s Mayfair on the night of Feb. 6. “So technologists and designers are invariably starting to make objects of desire.”
Will.i.am and Farfetch founder and chief executive officer José Neves hosted the talk in association with the Fashion Trust, a British Fashion Council charity that supports young designers. Topics ranged from artificial intelligence to the importance of data to Will.i.am’s regrets about not having studied computer science.
No stranger to tech collaborations, Will.i.am, whose real name is William James Adams, had previously teamed with Farfetch, launching wireless I.am EPs headphones in September. In 2015, he partnered with Gucci on a smartwatch that allowed users to take selfies and conduct video chats, and also worked with André Leon Talley on an I.am.Puls fashion bracelet, which is similar to a smartwatch and incorporates technologies that allow the user to make calls, send texts, post to social media, play music and track fitness.

The Hollywood Reporter Asked 7 White Guys To Talk About Diversity In Animation

The Hollywood Reporter brings together A-listers and industry veterans for thought-provoking conversations around awards season every year to give all of us watching at home a seat at the proverbial roundtable.

But for some reason, the media outlet thought the best candidates to engage in a much-needed discussion about diversity in animation were seven white guys, drawing ire across social media for the complete and total absence of diversity

Byron Howard, Garth Jennings, Travis Knight, Mike Mitchell, John Musker, and Mark Osborne and Seth Rogen, who are responsible for such films like “Zootopia,” “Moana,” and “Sing,” sat down earlier this week to talk “avoiding ethnic stereotypes” and trying to “break the mold” of princesses. 

The conversation was essentially facepalm central given the many worthy non-white and female animators working in the industry today who were not included. Even when acknowledging the importance of accurately representing different cultures on screen, the group fell into the very same traps of cultural insensitivity and bias they claim to avoid in their films. 

Rogen later acknowledged the irony of having the “white male take on ethnic stereotypes and sexism” in a tweet after the roundtable was published, joking that he was “Proud to break new ground.”

Read some excerpts from the conversation below: 

John Musker on directing “Moana”:

“We had the challenge in ‘Moana’ of dealing with this culture that we were really outsiders to in a way. I knew something about the South Pacific just from a distance, reading books set there and seeing paintings by Paul Gauguin and that sort of thing … So we cobbled together a story and pitched it to John and he said, ‘This is great, but you’ve got to dig deeper, do more research.’ So we were forced to go to Tahiti and Samoa and Fiji.”

“It was an added challenge that we didn’t have when we did ‘Aladdin.’ Our research on ‘Aladdin,’ it was during the first Gulf War, so for our research, we went to the L.A. Convention Center, where there was a Saudi Arabian expo.”

 Mark Osborne on developing “Kung Fu Panda”:

“That’s pretty good. On ‘Kung Fu Panda,’ we just Googled China. That was as far as we could go.”

Seth Rogen on the backlash to Salma Hayek’s taco character in “Sausage Party”: 

“You know, our movie is directly about racial stereotypes and how religion divides us and how our beliefs divide us and how we look different divides us and how we speak different divides us. And at the same time, as a lover of Disney animated movies, we took a lot of cues from those types of movies.”

Social media immediately took issue with the makeup of the roundtable, expressing their frustration toward the media outlet for not including a single person of color or woman in the conversation.

A Talk with Barbara Hershey About Her Long-standing Career

2016-05-03-1462298198-1491655-BHHeadshot.JPG

Barbara Hershey is a multi-award winning actress who has been gracing us with her presence on the big screen for quite some time. She is an Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner for Outstanding Lead Actress in a “Killing in a Small Town” and was nominated for an Academy Award for a “Portrait of a Lady” as well as a BAFTA award for “Black Swan”. In the 1980’s Barbara was at the height of her career. She has played many roles, from “The Stunt Man”, “The Right Stuff” to “Hannah and Her Sisters” with Woody Allen, and “Hoosiers” with Gene Hackman and Dennis Hopper, Barbara is the epitome of what it takes to have a lifetime career pursuing your dreams and doing what you love. From her award winning role in “Anne of Green Gables” for PBS for which she received a Gemini Award to co-starring opposite of Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson in “Insidious” Barbara’s gift of acting is beyond amazing.

I had an opportunity to speak with Barbara about her long-standing career and to find out what’s next for her.

ABCs “Once Upon a Time” is an amazing show, so let’s talk about your return to the show this season.

I was in two episodes this season. I was truly excited about it because I was asked to do more than I’d ever been asked to do before on the show. It was really an exciting show to get to do, and a very emotional show. They’re wonderful people and I enjoyed doing it and touching base again.

You play the standout character Ann Rutledge on the A&E series “Damien”, what has your experience been like?

Well one of the things that attracted me to it was the question, ‘what would you do if you found out you were the Antichrist?’ because we are starting with the iconic version of the film, the first one with Gregory Peck and Lee Remick and not dealing with any other sequels or anything since, and the little child at the end of that first film that looks at the camera and smiles, is Damien. This is him all grown up and during that period, the human part of him blanked out who he was. He couldn’t deal with it. He then found himself always drawn to pain so he became a war photographer. He’s now thirty years old. My character Ann Rutledge, has been in the shadows his whole life guiding him and protecting him, unbeknownst to him. He’s not aware of her at all, and at this moment she steps out of the shadows and lets him know who he is. But we approach this like the original film in that we approach it realistically. It’s much more like a psychological thriller with edges of horror rather than out of horror. We deal with a lot of interesting issues about good and evil and what is preordained and what isn’t. I find it very interesting and very surprising. The words Antichrist and Damien bring certain images to mind, but the show doesn’t really go in the obvious direction.

You’ve had a long a successful career, what has been your best and favorite role?

This is a very hard question to answer. I have five or six favorite roles and then as soon as I say that, I feel disappointed that I didn’t say something else. It’s hard. It’s like picking your children and saying which one you like best. They’re all a part of me and it’s a difficult thing to pick.

Let’s talk about “Black Swan” and how amazing the film was and your role in that.

I really loved the film. I don’t think I ever worked on a film where I had less of an idea of how the actual film was going to turn out. I don’t mean in terms of good or bad but in terms of my performance specifically, but the film itself. Darren’s way of directing is getting a lot of different varieties on a scene so you do lots of takes that are different from each other, and then he puts it together. The first time I saw the film, I didn’t know what the effect of my character was going to be. Especially that film because you’re looking at the movie through the eyes of someone who is going insane. It’s a subjected film. The character’s version of that is very warped and accelerates. You’re not just presenting a character, you’re presenting what’s going on and her perception of what’s going on kind of at the same time. It was a fantastic film to do and Darren is a really huge talent and wonderful to work with. It was intense. I came in the last three weeks of filming after they had done all of the ballet and everyone was pretty exhausted.

How did winning an Emmy and Golden Globe Award, change the direction of your career?

I don’t know if it did. I won the Cannes Film Festival twice too. It doesn’t seem to affect anything with me. I haven’t noticed any difference. But on a personal level, it has meaning. Film actors actually act in a vacuum, since they don’t have an audience. When you do get an award, it’s kind of an undeniable circumstance where you have to admit what you did which is gratifying. But I always think acting awards are writing awards anyway.

What’s next for you and do you have any aspirations to work behind the camera?

I don’t know what’s next which is often where I’ve been in my life and that doesn’t bother me but I have to stay in a state of openness. Hopefully “Damien” will get renewed and that will be next, but you never know about things. And behind the camera, I don’t know and I don’t think that’s a good enough answer to step behind the camera. I think you have to know. Sometimes I think it would be good but I don’t know. It’s not a big aspiration. I’ve always been just an actor. That’s my love.

Gabriela Hearst: It was our launch season and we’d been conceptualizing the project for more than two years, so it had been a long journey to get there. Only a few trusted key people had seen the collection so we were very excited to finally show it.

Can We Please Talk About This Very Tiny Unicorn

Once upon a time, circa 1505 or 1506, the great High Renaissance painter Raphael painted a little known worked titled “Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn.” As you can see, said painting does indeed feature one lady and one unicorn.

Except the title sort of downplays the whole mystical horned horse aspect. Raphael’s unicorn, it should be noted hyperbolically in the headline, is a BABY unicorn that could easily be mistaken for a furry teacup puppy or a very amiable kitten. It’s tiny mouth appears to be neighing, for crying out loud! Cue immense d’awwwwww.

This blessed portrait, originally housed in the Galleria Borghese in Rome, caught our attention when a curious press release landed in our inboxes, announcing the painting’s debut appearance in the United States later this year. The exhibition, very correctly titled “Sublime Beauty,” will bring what is inarguably the world’s most adorable baby unicorn first to the Cincinnati Art Museum and then to the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, Calif. We can hear the lines forming now.

But why does one lone painting of a lady and her pet unicorn deserve the attention of the Internet? According to Dr. Esther Bell, curator in charge of European paintings at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Raphael’s “Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn” is not only “a stunning masterpiece of the Italian High Renaissance,” it’s also a bona fide art world mystery.

The identity of the blond woman behind the unicorn, it turns out, is unknown, as is the meaning or iconography of the bite-size unicorn in her lap. Some scholars believe the painting may have been commissioned for a wedding; the unicorn could be interpreted as a symbol of chastity. For example, Alan Riding, in a 2001 article in The New York Times, speculated that ”Portrait of a Lady” originally showed a betrothed woman holding a dog, “a symbol of fidelity.” However, when the subject’s marriage was called off, Raphael may have replaced the dog with a unicorn, a nod to her virginity.

Others note the portrait’s resemblance to Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” referencing minute details like the painting’s half-length format, the presence of folded hands and the distant landscape in the background. Not to mention, that stare. Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino — aka Raphael — is known in part for his association with masters like Leonardo, Michelangelo and, thank you “TMNT,” Donatello. Leo and the much younger Raphael were both creating works in Florence, Italy in the 16th century, so it wouldn’t be much of a stretch if the latter was influenced by the former’s style.

“The ‘Mona Lisa’ is the singular portrait of the High Renaissance, but we find ‘Portrait of a Lady with a Unicorn’ to be just as beautiful and compelling,” Bell told the San Francisco Gate. “We believe Raphael was familiar with da Vinci’s work, and there is definitely a stylistic tie to be made to the ‘Mona Lisa.'”

In the aforementioned press release, Bell teases that the “Sublime Beauty,” which opens on Oct. 3, will introduce new scholarship on the miniature beast and his mysterious owner. The New York Times’ recently reported that the woman in the painting, curator Linda Wolk-Simon believes, could be the daughter of Pope Alexander VI’s mistress, Giulia Farnese.

Until October, all we can do is feast upon the tiny creature’s beauty here. While some museums are paying homage to contemporary cat memes, and others are celebrating the squee-inducing kitties of art history past, members of the Cincinnati and San Francisco art communities have this to say: don’t forget about the baby unicorn.

You Want Attention? Talk About Me, Not You

I don’t mean to literally talk about me, Tucker Max, that would be a terrible way to get attention.

I am talking about “me” in the plural sense, as the customer or reader or client. Lemme explain. Every single day of my life, someone asks me this question:

“How do I get people to pay attention to my writing? What’s your trick?”

So I’ll ask them who their writing is for, and this is what they say:

“Me, me, me, me, me, me! MEEEE!! EVERYONE LOOK AT ME!!”

OK, I’m exaggerating. They usually don’t scream, but the answer is always about themselves, never about their audience. They tell me what their book or blog post or writing means to them. Most people write only with themselves in mind, and not with an audience in mind.

And that’s precisely the reason why no ones care about their writing.

It’s really funny that Tucker Max is telling you this, isn’t it? To not focus on yourself? Because you’re probably thinking, “Didn’t you sell millions of books that were just talking about yourself?”

Actually, no.

My books are the perfect example of the right way to do this. Even if you’re a huge fan and read all my books cover to cover, you still don’t know very much about me at all. My books are funny stories about stupid things I did, and they are designed to entertain the reader. There is almost nothing in there that is actually about me, or written for me. It’s all written for the reader – which is why it sells so well, and that is key lesson here. If you’re trying to get attention for your writing – or actually, ANY product or idea at all – please listen to this fact:

No one cares about your writing. They only care about what your writing does for them.

This is the best advice you can get for trying to get anyone to do anything – read your writing, buy your product, go to your bar, anything. My area of expertise is writing and books and publishing, but this applies to everything. See, watch it work:

No one cares about your product, they only care about what your product does for them.

And of course, services:

No one cares about your service, they only care about what your service does for them.

Watch it work in all sales:

No one cares about what you’re selling, they only care about what it does for them.

It even works in broad categories, like ideas:

No one cares about your idea, they only care about what your idea means to them.

I bet you understand already. We’re all sophisticated buyers of products and services, and this is how we buy things for ourselves  - - by calculating if the product or service will provide a value to us.

Yet, when the roles are reversed and people start trying to get attention for their product or service, they lose their damn minds, and somehow think that everyone has to pay attention to them just because they want them to. It’s like as a society we have decided to be perfectly rational buyers, and totally irrational sellers.

But at least with a product or a service, people ultimately understand that they’re making something for someone else. So unless they are blinded by the self-proclaimed brilliance of their idea/product, they eventually get that it has to appeal to the buyer. With books or blog posts or writing, people really lose their minds, because people think of a their writing in a totally different way.

Most people see their writing as a piece of themselves, as a representation of their identity, or some sort of personal validation. They think that getting attention for their writing will confirm and validate their idea, and thus themselves. I have seen this over and over and over.

I would say less than 10 percent of the writing I see is actually about delivering value to an audience; the rest is ultimately about the writer, not the audience. You’re probably making this mistake too, without even realizing it.

This is literally what we deal with everyday in our publishing company. When we started our company, we thought the most important service we provided to authors was saving them time (our process only takes authors about 12 hours). That time saving is great, but the real value we provide to authors comes from helping them see exactly what wisdom they have that’s interesting to other people  —  which is the only way to get attention for your book.

We charge a decent sized fee for our services, but I’ll explain to you exactly what we do to get authors to understand this, because if you write anything for anyone  —  a book, blog, newsletter  —  this is process will make your writing better.

There’s three basic steps that will ensure you get attention for your book or blog post (and yes, this works almost the exact same way for anything):

-What is your goal for this book/blog post/piece of writing (or product or service or idea)?

-What audience do you need to reach in order to accomplish that goal?

-What wisdom, information or value can you deliver to that audience that will help them reach their goals?

Do you see what that process does? It centers the entire discussion on the audience, not on yourself. Why does this matter? Because no one cares about your writing, they care about what your writing does for them.

I’ll give you a specific example of how we took an author through this process, how it turned his book from a dud into something that got a ton of attention, and it will show you how to do this with your writing (or product):

This entrepreneur wanted to write a book about how he built a large commercial plumbing contracting business, in order to drive clients to his business and raise his profile in the plumbing industry. He was very proud of his company and wanted more people to know about it (and I think he secretly had visions of this book elevating him alongside famous business people like Jack Welch and Sheryl Sandberg). There was a small problem:

No one on earth wants to read a self-congratulatory book about plumbing (I won’t make the obvious poop joke here).

We walked him through our exercise, and he realized that the audience he needed to hit in order to reach his goal (people who buy commercial plumbing services or care about the plumbing industry) were never going to read his book  —  unless he said something of interest to them.

So we asked him a bunch of questions about plumbing, the problems in the business, his experiences, and realized something: He had an incredible way of evaluating and speccing out commercial jobs that was genuinely revolutionary (at least as far as you can revolutionize plumbing). And guess what? That information would be incredibly valuable to the exact audience he needed to hit: people who buy commercial plumbing services.

So that’s what his book became  —  the definitive guide on how to evaluate and spec out commercial plumbing jobs. Which will NOT put him next to the titans of business, but it WILL get him in front of exactly the people he wants, in exactly the way he wants it.

And it’s happening only because he used his wisdom to help his audience reach their goals.

See how this works? This is the key to getting attention for any writing  –  books, blog posts, even tweets  —  first make your writing about the other person, help them reach their goals, and that will inspire them to both engage your writing and then share it with others. That’s the only writing that anyone cares about reading  –  the writing that helps them.

You decide what to read based on the same calculus, right  —  what is potentially useful to you? So why do you think anyone will read your writing based on what it means to you? They won’t. Write with your audience in mind, and then getting attention is easy. And if you do that, then they will engage your writing (or product or idea), and that is how you reach your goal.

As my friend Justine Musk says, “The question isn’t how the world can cater to your passions, but how your passions can cater to the world.”

Your Body Can Talk, Revised 2nd Edition

Your Body Can Talk, Revised 2nd Edition


This book, about the art and application of Clinical Kinesiology, introduces the energetic system that links mind and body. It shows how the body can “talk,” and therefore be used as a diagnostic tool, and to determine which healing approach will best suit an individual. Clinical Kinesiology allows us to interpret this new “body talk.” This method of muscle-testing “reads” the body’s innate wisdom; when “asked” a question, or presented with a stimulus, the muscles respond clearly, either strongly or weakly. This system, which expedites the application of acupuncture, also helps realign the body’s energy imbalances. Readers will find specific methods of fighting disease that emphasize the dangers of unnecessary drugs, antibiotics and immunization, and the need for a fortified immune system especially through natural foods. Other topics include: rebuilding the body’s ecology after an overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria or Candidiasis; how to maintain the integrity of the energy system through minimizing exposure to unhealthy electromagnetic fields or EMFs; optimal health for woman; and issues of men’s health. New material in this 2nd edition includes an extensive chapter on children’s health, which addresses pregnancy, birthing procedures and breastfeeding, and illustrates a road map for giving your children (and children yet to come) the best potential for optimal health.

Sheryl Underwood Slams The Duggars On ‘The Talk’ After Fox Interview

“19 Kids and Counting” stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar broke their silence in an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Wednesday, and it brought out a very powerful and emotional response from “The Talk” host Sheryl Underwood on Thursday.

During their interview, the Duggars revealed they didn’t seek any sort of help for their oldest son Josh until the third time he confessed to them that he had molested five minor girls. The breaking point, they said, was when Josh admitted to touching his youngest sister, who was only 5 years old at the time. Sisters Jessa, 22, and Jill, 24, spoke out near the end of the interview, confirming they were two of Josh’s victims.

Underwood, who is a survivor of sexual abuse, did not accept what many saw as excuses from the Duggar parents.

“I went through that [at] 3, 4, 5 years old … you know something is wrong and if nobody listens to you and nobody is going to stop it whether I’m asleep or not. I didn’t sleep. I learned how to stay up as long as I could. I may sleep at school, because nobody is going to protect me, so I had to protect myself,” she said.

She continued, “Aisha you said that it didn’t help [the Duggars] to do this interview. What it really did was it helped us, the world, to see what happens to people when they’re in some type of family structure when the people you’re supposed to trust to protect you seem to be your co-conspirator in your violation.”

During their interview with Kelly, the Duggars made sure to state that, “As parents, you aren’t mandatory reporters,” also noting, Josh “was still a kid and he was still a juvenile. He wasn’t an adult … This wasn’t rape or anything like that.”

Ashley Graham’s Ted Talk Is A Lesson In Body Acceptance

Ashley Graham, body activist, model, lingerie designer and all-around beautiful human, is taking her message of body love and acceptance on the road.

The co-founder of ALDA (a coalition of plus-size models) participated in a TEDx Talk in Valencia, Spain, on April 25, where she got real with a sold-out audience of 450 people.

Admiring the parts of her body some might consider “flaws” in a mirror (“Thick thighs, you’re so sexy you can’t stop rubbing each other,” she joked), Graham shares her story, from her early days of plus-size modeling to her current status as a five-time magazine cover star and pioneer in the fight toward self love for all women.

ashley graham

Graham acknowledges that she, like so many other women, has dealt with a lack of confidence. “I would go home and look in the mirror and hate what I saw,” she said. But learning to face her insecurities head-on is what allowed her to take back control of her body:

“I felt free, once I realized i was never going to fit the narrow mold that society wanted me to fit in. I was never going to be perfect enough for an industry that defines perfection from the outside in, and that’s okay.”

It certainly is. Check out the moving video above.

Jack McCollough, Lazaro Hernandez Talk Proenza Schouler at FIAF

NEW YORK — When Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez met as first-year transfer students at The New School’s Parsons School of Design — McCollough had previously studied painting in San Francisco, and Hernandez was pre-med in Miami — they became instant friends and the eventual codesigners of Proenza Schouler, a brand that sold their entire senior thesis collection to Barneys New York and went on to win the inaugural CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Award two years after it was founded in 2002.
During a talk at the French Institute Alliance Française, which launched its annual Fashion Talks series in Manhattan, the duo opened up to Vogue’s digital creative director Sally Singer about the brand’s humble beginnings and still-rebellious spirit. “Our teachers at school hated us,” Hernandez said. “We were the worst students. They were like, ‘You need to stop making clothes for art girls. You guys need to make easy separates.’ And we were like ‘What? No!” That spirit kind of stays with us to this day. P— off some people….Some people will love it, some people will hate it. You can’t cater to every single person.”
Later, an audience member asked if the designers would ever consider working for another house.

Joe Franklin Dead, TV Host Established Talk Shows

NEW YORK (AP) — Pioneering radio and TV host Joe Franklin, who gave breaks to the likes of Al Pacino and Bill Cosby on his variety show long before they became famous and who boasted he never missed a broadcast in decades, has died at age 88.

He died Saturday of cancer, which he had had for a few years, longtime producer and friend Steven Garrin said. Franklin often is credited with developing the standard TV talk show format, sitting behind a desk while interviewing wanna-be celebrities, minor celebrities and the occasional bona fide celebrity.

The host of “The Joe Franklin Show” started in TV in 1950. By the early 1990s, he often said, he had chatted with more than 300,000 guests, including Marilyn Monroe, Liza Minnelli and Madonna. But the notables often had to share air time on his low-budget show with a tap-dancing dentist or a man who whistled through his nose.

Garrin recalled how Franklin, who was parodied by Billy Crystal on “Saturday Night Live,” hired a young Bette Midler as his studio singer and gave a chance on his show to every up-and-comer trying to make it big: Bruce Springsteen, Woody Allen and Dustin Hoffman among them.

“He was a wonderful guy,” Garrin said Sunday. “He gave everybody an opportunity.”

Garrin said he remembered how Pacino, after he became a Hollywood movie star, told Franklin in a private meeting: “Joe, why don’t you interview me now that I’m somebody? You interviewed me when I was nobody.”

After Franklin’s TV show ended in 1993, he worked on his late-night radio show. He continued to work even after he developed cancer, doing celebrity interviews on the Bloomberg Radio Network.

Tuesday was the first scheduled broadcast Franklin had missed in more than 60 years, said Garrin, who worked with him for 20 of those years, booking all his interviews and recording the shows in his studios in Times Square between 1991 and 2010.

HuffPost Style Editors Team Up With The Style Line And Talk Fashion, Food And Festive Attire

The Style line is not your average fashion blog. What started as a humble street style Tumblr in 2011 when creator Rachel Schwartzmann was just a senior in high school, has become a full fledged website celebrating both style and substance.

“I see it now as an online lifestyle resource with an unfiltered view into the who rather than the what,” Schwartzmann told HuffPost. “We tell our stories through a style lens but hope to share fashion content in a people-first approach. I make sure to take a community-building approach to how and what we feature and that in turn has allowed us to meet interesting people from a myriad of industries across the globe.”

In other words, The Style Line’s mission is to tell the story of the person beyond just what they are wearing. Mission accomplished.

The site, whose name is a nod to the NYC transit system and inspired by the idea of movement and exploration, has profiled a slew of fashionable and creative global citizens including fashion designer Nanette Lepore, West Elm’s creative director Vanessa Holden, Reformation’s Brianna Lance and the team at Nasty Girl — just to name a few. And now you can add the HuffPost Style team to that awesome list.

Last week Schwartzmann visited us at The Huffington Post offices to get the scoop on our personal style, what makes us tick, our favorite things, and dressing up for the holiday season. The result is a super fun look into how we work, play and sometimes twerk our way through life.

Laverne Cox, Lupita Nyong’o And More Talk The Best Style Advice They’ve Ever Received

Each year, Glamour’s Women Of The Year Awards honor a slew of truly inspiring women and their efforts to make the world a better place. This year’s top-notch guest list boasted the likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Laverne Cox and Chelsea Clinton, not to mention our own Editor-In-Chief, Arianna Huffington, alongside Karlie Kloss and Shonda Rhimes (just to name a few).

And while the crowds came out in droves to honor these amazing women and what they are currently working on, we here at HuffPost Style had some questions about what they learned before hitting the red carpet. Namely, the best style or beauty advice they have ever received.

And while we sadly didn’t get a chance to ask presenter Stephen Colbert to share his beauty regimen, we did learn a thing or two about heels, eyebrows and of course, moisturizer. Check out some of our favorite quotes below.

“Dress for your body. Know yourself. Honor your body and celebrate who you are.” –Laverne Cox

arianna
“Do not wear high heels! Kitten heels are OK, but never more than kitten. If we have any editor [at the Huffington Post] that is a size 9.5 or 10, they can have all my high heels. I’m going to put them all in the kitchen.” –Arianna Huffington

karlie
“My mom always gave me great style and beauty advice. She said to be confident in what you’re wearing, no matter what it is. Just own it.” –Karlie Kloss

Let’s Talk: Mistakes You Probably Make When Talking To Your Spouse

By Katie Parsons for KnowMore.tv

If you’re married, then you’re probably familiar with the knot you get in your stomach when you have to bring up a sensitive issue with your spouse. Discussing difficult topics — whether it be about money, parenting, sex, etc.– is never easy, and there are many things you can say or do that make the situation worse.

Tension arises over an array of issues, according to Catherine Bronza, an Orlando, FL-based psychotherapist who uses a short-term structured psychotherapy approach with clients called the Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy Model (EFT). But no matter what the hot button topic is, Bronza says that there are seven conversation habits that you should STOP doing so your discussion doesn’t spiral into a heated argument.

1. You’re ready for combat.

Avoid combat mentality when you enter, or are invited, into a difficult conversation with your spouse. The discussion isn’t about winning points by cutting down your opponent. It should be about working together to find a solution to the problem.

Both parties need to feel safe and supported in order to take the risk and muster of the courage to present a tough topic. “It takes vulnerability, honesty, courage and a bit of risk to get difficult topics aired out and addressed productively,” says Bronza. Put down your boxing gloves and navigate the conversation with care.

2. You blame your spouse.

It’s not easy to take responsibility for problems in a marriage, especially if you don’t feel that you’re at fault. But don’t assume that your spouse is completely to blame either. You need to listen with an open mind and heart and remember that there are two sides to ever situation. Marriage is a partnership and you need to play fairly.

3. You resort to name calling.

Please don’t act like you’re 9 years old when you’re not getting your way! Respect for your partner is the first step toward resolution, says Bronza. This means knowing what topics may be super-sensitive and not reacting harshly. “Even if your spouse resorts to name calling, try to keep your cool and bring the discussion back to a positive place.”

4. Your tone is nasty.

Your approach to the conversation is just as important as the message. “What’s more, the message will be completely lost or misinterpreted if the other person feels attacked,” warns Bronza. Remember that you’re not scolding your spouse; you’re looking for a way to find answers together.

5. Your timing is off.

Even if you’re ready to boil over with all that you want to say to your spouse, pick the right time to have the conversation.

The topic should be addressed as an invitation to discuss something that’s important to you, and you should be clear-headed and calm. “It helps to start with an ‘I statement,'” suggests Bronza. “This is when a person will say something like, ‘I’m struggling with something right now. I need your help in figuring this out. Are you open to talk for a little while?'”

If your partner isn’t in a space where he or she can be fully engaged, then plan for a time to talk when he or she is totally available.

6. You bicker in front of others.

Keep your struggles between you and your spouse… period. “Bringing up negative issues around others, even children or other family members, brings a natural defensiveness that can be difficult to break down later on,” says Bronza.

7. You use negative body language.

The way you feel on the inside will manifest itself in your facial expressions and the way you carry yourself, so be conscious of this barrier. When possible, be on the same level as your spouse (so you’re either both sitting or standing) and even try to hold his or her hand if the moment feels right. “Show that you’re not walled off from your spouse, but that you’re open to working through the problem together,” advises Bronza.

Couples should never completely bottle up negativity out of fear of backlash, though. It’s important to keep the lines of communication clear and open in order to grow together.

“When issues are left to simmer, they eventually boil over and cause damage to the relationship,” warns Bronza. “It really helps to stay in the moment with each other and talk things out as they occur. Relationships thrive on good clear communication.”

A Conversation with Terry Bozzio

Mike Ragogna: Terry, when did your devotion to percussion and drums begin and who are some of your early musical heroes?

Terry Bozzio: Surf Drum Music, Sandy Nelson etc., then The Beatles on Ed Sullivan made me beg my father for drum lessons. I’m celebrating the anniversary of 50 years since that first lesson on July 15, 2014. Then the San Francisco music scene exploded and local bands like Big Brother with Janis Joplin could be seen down the road for $ 2.50. Jimi Hendrix and Cream came next. Then I went to college and got into studying the great jazz drummers who played with Miles or Coltrane and classical music.

MR: What was playing with Frank Zappa like and how did he influence you? What are your favorite recordings with him?

TB: I was very much in awe of Franks’s multiple talents and intellectual prowess. I learned so much from him in 3 years! It was like Marine Boot Camp for musicians.
He took me from being a naive drummer from San Francisco to being known all over the world with credibility, just because I was affiliated with him. Favorite recording would have to be “The Ocean is the Ultimate Solution” because it was an improvisation with him.

MR: You also played in UK and with Jeff Beck. What are your reflections of those years?

TB: Ah, the English! Well, Beck, of course, is just the best guitarist and one of the nicest people I have worked with. Thanks to him and keyboardist/composer Tony Hymas we made Guitar Shop, won a Grammy and toured the world several times. Playing with Jeff is like lighting a fire. And I loved to try to light him on fire! The UK was a great experience for me as well, I was a sideman member, enjoyed the music and tried to play my ass off back then.

MR: How did your group Missing Persons come about and did you leave for creative or personal reasons or…?

TB: It was a concept that developed between Warren, my ex [Dale Bozzio] and myself. I was frustrated by being a sideman in UK and wanted to do something more unique and modern. Warren left Frank Zappa and I left UK. We hooked up with the legendary Ken Scott, and Zappa let us use his studio to cut the demo EP (that got picked up and later sold something close to 400K, which for a time was the best selling EP in history). The idea was to be as creative as possible w/great players and intricate music but in the “pop” universe. We wanted it to be like a Fellini movie, and it was on many levels, including the tragic parts!

MR: Do you have a spiritual connection when playing drums and percussion?

TB: Absolutely. It’s really very much a “whole psyche” experience. I describe it as a “borderline” state of using all that you know and are, consciously: Intellectually, emotionally, physically and intuitively. But dipping into the unconscious and letting things happen or come through you that you were not aware of or planning. That’s the spiritual moment where things better that you could conceive happen. At that moment you use everything you know about music and compositional technique to develop, repeat, enhance or contrast with this sort of “gift idea” you have been graced with. When you are in this “zone,” it is an awesome experience.

MR: Any particular moments of your career overall that you’re the most proud of?

TB: My bio is loaded with them, Zappa once called me a genius! That was nice! But, I’m hoping this upcoming tour will be that. My big kit has midi to enhance the melodies I play. There are a lot of contrasting pieces I’ll be playing that take from, classical, ethnic percussion styles from all over the world, ambient, spacey, film score like compositions, as well as my art work as a stage set. I hope to take my audience on a time traveling experience with me!

MR: You also recorded instructional videos, performed at drum clinics, etc. How do you feel about being in the role of teacher or mentor?

TB: You can’t keep it unless you give it away! When not touring I work at DrumChannel.com hosting shows where I get to interview the best drummers in the world and play with them! And I have a full Art of Drumming lesson series you could study from. It covers all the elements of music: rhythm, melody, harmony, dynamics and orchestration as applied to the drum set in video and downloadable PDF files of exercises. I feel responsible to study and use the correct language of music–from the Western European tradition–when I speak and teach. I then try to share my concepts. A concept can be universal and students can apply them in infinite ways according to their own expression and affinities.

MR: What advice do you have for new artists?

TB: Study, learn the history, learn the basics. Try to be consistent and enjoy the process. Look inside, be authentic and honest with yourself, others and your art.

MR: And what would you have told Terry Bozzio when he was first starting out?

TB: Probably the same thing…but I wouldn’t have listened!! Youth is wasted on youth.

MR: Where do you see your place in music as a player and patron saint of the ostinato?

TB: I don’t see myself that way at all! An ostinato is just another of many musical/compositional devices. Most music falls into the homophonic category, that is, sound with sound, harmonic or rhythmic accompaniment with a lead melody or rhythm line. The accompaniment is always subordinate to the lead line. Much the same way as a pianist plays a bass line or chords with his left hand while playing the lead melody with his right. This technique has been around for hundreds of years–i.e. Mozart’s use of the “Alberti bass line”–and is not my invention. The drum set was only invented about 1899 when a drummer rigged up a way to play bass drum with his foot while playing snare drum with his hands. We’ve been expanding and developing techniques and technology to this day. It’s what we do! What we love! I love to compose, paint, practice new things, invent new equipment, make my drums look like an abstract (but functional) sculpture! Nobody pays me to do those things! It’s what I feel compelled to do. But I also love to share what I’ve discovered with others. That’s where my love of performance comes in. And most importantly the magic of live music. There is nothing to compare it too… CD’s, DVD’s of say Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” are great, but when you hear it played by great musicians in a symphony hall it becomes transcendent!

Think about it. Music is a ritual or reenactment of a myth. A theater is a “church” for music. The listener gives himself over to the experience without the distractions of the outside normal world. The artist is a channel or medium for the very spirit of creativity. He is high up on stage, the listener low. He is in the light, the listener is in the dark. He performs through an amplified sound system while the listener is silent. If the artist does his job correctly, both share in a transcendent experience where one is lifted above our normal mundane state of consciousness into a place where time and space no longer have such a hold on us. We are transformed, if only for a moment, into a place where feelings of awe, joy and ecstasy exist. Science explains this as entrainment, because everything in the universe is rhythm–frequency and vibration. From the rotations of planets to tempo, into the hearing range of pitch, to color–trillions of vibrations per second–to radio waves, x-rays and beyond, all are related by the law of the octave. So music is indeed a metaphor for the universe!

A Conversation with July Talk

Mike Ragogna: I’m sure you’ve been asked this a billion times, so here comes a billion and one. What is the history of the name “July Talk”?

Peter Dreimanis: Essentially, the first song that was written for the band was called “July Talk” and we ended up switching and using it as the band name because it seemed so fitting. The whole band is based around conversation, every song is kind of a back and forth between Leah and I. The month of July seemed prevalent because as a young person you can start a summer, you can party your face off, you can fall in love, you can have these incredible high highs and low lows and then the fall can come and everything gets swept under the rug. We wanted to have a conversation that was stuck within that naïveté, I guess, that lost summer. That kind of felt fitting for the band’s name because of the dramatic live show we try to put as such a priority.

MR: You guys are based in Toronto, right?

Leah Fay: Correct!

MR: What’s the history of the band?

LF: Peter and I met in a bar.

MR: A lot of great stories start with that line.

LF: [laughs] We dug the way our voices sounded so we started getting together and playing some tunes and it quickly became very obvious that this project needed to be a full-on five piece rock ‘n’ roll band, so Danny Miles on drums, Josh Warburton on bass, and Ian Docherty on guitar all came into the picture. Basically, we toured the sh*t out of Canada and now we’ve kind of slowly been introducing ourselves to the rest of the world.

MR: Josh, you’ve directed the band’s videos, which are all in black and white. Usually, that approach is used for a retro or noir effect. What was your intention?

Josh Warburton: The video is just an extension of an aesthetic that Peter had early on. We approached everything in this black and white visual that helps illustrate the ying and the yang, the black and white of the conversation between he and Leah. Obviously, as a filmmaker when you’re told you can only make something in black and white you’re thrilled because normally people don’t want to see black and white or don’t want to commission black and white work. For us it became this opportunity to have a wonderful aesthetic and from there build in some period elements while still keeping the project rounded and contemporary. It’s just a great place to start from and the band is really fun to film, there’s always great energy, so it seems to be the perfect fit.

PD: It’s just as important that we have fun creating the visuals for the band as we do creating the record. I think as the project develops they become so interwoven you get lost. When we’re writing a song it won’t be five minutes into finding that hook that we’re already thinking of what the visual side could be, so moving forward we’re really looking forward to working our asses off and trying to create something really cohesive.

MR: What’s the music making process like?

LF: July Talk kind of only lives on stage. When we first released our first album in Canada, we’d played maybe four shows or something like that, so the ten songs came out and we quickly realized how much they were changing and how much we were learning about what this project really is. It’s kind of a chaotic rock ‘n’ roll experiment based on a conversation, so the way we write is trying to capture that kind of energy and write with an audience in mind. The way we’ve figured out how to do that best for us currently is locking ourselves in a cabin or a house and working sixteen to eighteen hour days waking up in the morning and writing. It can be complicated to collaborate but at the end of the day five minds are better than one.

MR: Peter, how do you feel about your voice being compared to Tom Waits?

PD: [laughs] It’s an inevitable thing when you sing in that register, to be compared to people that do. I’ve always lived by the idea that as an artist if you’re not exercising the part of you that makes you the most unique you might not be getting at the epicenter of what you can put into the world. It’s important to me that I experiment with that. As soon as I became old enough as a teenager to start making these sounds that I thought only old men could make, it opened up a world of opportunity. All these songs that you start playing and start writing suddenly mean something completely different when they come out of your gut, or out of this part of you that you didn’t even know really existed. Writing with Leah, it’s an entirely incredible project. We always joke that if we ever had another band where it was just one of us songwriting would be kind of boring. It’s so addictive to create these two sides to every issue and use the difference in our voices to illustrate that conflict. It’s quite addicting, and my voice doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, it’s only getting lower. Hopefully, we can keep doing it.

MR: Do you think that might be from life on the road?

PD: Uh, yeah, you hit the nail on the head.

MR: And Leah, you’re a soprano. Did you have any training?

LF: Not really. The first time I started singing was because I very briefly wanted to have a career as a musical theater actress. I spent my whole life dancing and doing art and then eventually studying performance art, but when I was trying to figure out what it was I wanted to do I was like, “I just want to be a triple threat!” Unfortunately, I didn’t really have any faith in my voice, but you have your heart broken and then you need to start writing songs about it. I started singing out of necessity, not so much because I thought I had a good voice.

MR: Where do the topics you write about come from?

PD: They kind of come out of nowhere. We could be driving in a van and something comes up. What’s changed over the last year of writing for the band is that we’re a bit more on the same team. It used to be that Leah would write what she’s says and I would write what I’m saying and we would hope there’s enough butting of heads in the process that there would be conflict in the art. But I think as time went on, we started doing it more like how the band makes music, which is a heavily accountable editing process where every little part. Every little word has to be proven to each other and we have to make sure that we’re headed in the right direction. The topics we write about lately is kind of what it’s like to be a man or a woman at our age and try to be brave and say things that everybody knows, but people are a little afraid to say; acknowledge the unacknowledged. I think that inherently when you put a man and a woman on stage, you could be singing “Born To Run” and it would mean something totally different from when Bruce Springsteen sings it. People are going to attach gender identity to anything so we thought, “Why not explore those topics and really try to take an opportunity that’s fallen in our lap?” I think that’s the direction that we like to write in, to examine those ideas.

MR: Your latest single and EP title is Guns + Ammunition. Its subject matter seems pretty universal yet complex.

PD: Yeah. We’re really obsessed with these two opposite sides and “Guns + Ammunition” seemed like a perfect metaphor for codependence. Neither of them is anything without the other. Thinking of that when it comes to being in love and being damaged felt right. I think that as we go through these writing processes, we get excited because we push each other and make sure that we’re really getting to the essence of something. The only reason it really is rewarding is because when you write the songs that really do get to the essence of that conflict. When you play it live, it’s different every night and there’s a fight that starts. Each song is getting to that point, and when we started playing “Guns + Ammunition,” it was just so obvious that that song was able to hit something that created this feud, this chaos, this manic-ness on stage that hasn’t disappeared, and it changes every single night.

MR: So your live act contains a performance art approach. How much of that would you say is in the mix on stage?

LF: Well, it’s not really a planned thing where we say, “Tonight’s going to be a night that we focus on performance art,” because that kind of goes against everything that I think live performance art is and stands for. Where it falls into a more conceptual-based is just because we’re trying to all acknowledge the fact that we’re human beings on stage and we’re in a room with a bunch of other human beings who can be affected by us. It’s all just feeling what the room needs and then giving whatever that is to them on a night-by-night basis. There’s a lot of pushing on boundaries and sometimes taking things back.

PD: I think that the real thing that I’ve learned from Leah, especially from her education with performance is just seeing vulnerability and the risk of failure as a good thing. Something that I think all five of us have realized is that it’s not interesting to watch a performer sit in a comfortable chair and play their song. If you’re going to get at that conflict that we’re talking about you need to see somebody at their absolute breaking point, the break where they think that everything’s going to fall apart and maybe it does for a few seconds, maybe mistakes are made, maybe guitars get unplugged and there’s things being thrown. That’s what we’re trying to get at, that point where the audience really isn’t sure if what’s happening is good or bad or intentional or how they should feel about it or react. Those are the moments in a July Talk show where everybody in the room is feeling so uncomfortable and so intimate at the same time. I think that’s kind of what we’re trying to go for, those moments.

LF: When you’re on stage, you can totally manipulate people. If Peter smashes his face and he’s bleeding but then I say, “Don’t worry, it’s fake blood,” seventy-five percent of the audience will believe me. You can really take them along for whatever sort of ride they’re willing to go on.

MR: July Talk was acknowledged as Best Alternative Group of the Year by Canadian Sirius/XM’s indie awards, and you’ve also been nominated Group of the Year at the Juno Awards. These are pretty big accomplishments considering this is technically your debut EP.

LF: We’re totally babies.

PD: [laughs] We actually joke about it all the time. It happened far more quickly than we expected. It’s kind of just one of those situations where the point that we thought this band was going to is so far past that we’re really just trying to get to the point where we can live as artists and have ideas and put them into action. That’s our dream now, so we all just work together and our lives have, basically, been turned upside down. But we like them much more than our old lives.

MR: Hey July Talk, what advice do you have for new artists?

LF: Do your thing. Don’t give a f**k about what anyone else thinks. You’ve got to hone in on what it is that makes you, and what it is that you want to say and try not to be affected by that human urge to compete and compare and talk down to and all those things. At the end of the day, you’ve got to be a good person. That’s the important thing. You can’t be a s**thead.

PD: I think the biggest thing is just staying on the idea that if you make a mistake make it again and capitalize on it. That’s what people are interested in seeing. They’re interested in seeing human beings, they don’t want to see this glossy thing that has nothing to do with real life. That’s what we’re into. I don’t know if it will work for them.

Ian Docherty: Play a lot and tour.

Josh Warburton: I’m kind of reiterating, but I think being sincere in what you’re doing is important. It’s really easy when you’re a musician, and especially in this industry, to start to model certain elements of your act around what’s working around you. I think when that stuff happens, you get a lot Frankenstein bands, both visually and sonically. If you can stay the course and find what it is that influences you and then if your songs can translate and play well just on the acoustic guitar, then you’re golden.

Danny Miles: I full agree with Josh, being true to yourself, and Ian as well, working hard. It doesn’t come easy. We are a new band, but we’ve all been working hard for years before this.

LF: Try to be as smelly as possible and make all the people fall in love with your pheromones.

MR: [laughs] Where do you want July Talk’s future to go?

PD: I think we very early on decided that we needed to know what we were in it for. You obviously don’t become a musician to make money anymore, so it’s very important to know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Josh and I had that conversation when we first started the band. “What do we want?” I remember Josh’s answer was to make a great record, one of those records that people remember. My goal, if you want to call it that, was to have a show that people knew and could come and enjoy and see multiple shows in a tour and still feel like they wanted more. As soon as we started developing that, well, right now our live show is where we feel at home. We feel totally rewarded by it and we can’t get enough of that. The record is the next step, moving forward. You’re always trying to create that sound and capture that moment on record. I think that’s next for us. I hope with this release in the States we can continue exploring that.

LF: I think when you start a band, what you really want to do is take over the world but then the checkpoints of world domination keep getting farther and farther away and the world just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I think that’s kind of the motivating point to keep going, you just have to accept that you don’t know anything. For us, as long as this project keeps going and we’re constantly being pushed back onto our asses, it makes us want to stand up again and work harder and keep learning.

A Conversation with Magic Man

Mike Ragogna: Here you are with your You Are Here EP, “Paris” being one of its featured tracks and premiered video. But enough of that. You’re a Boston act, a place from where many high-powered, iconic groups have emerged. So what is Magic Man’s superhero origin story?

Sam Lee: Well, we’re all from a mysterious alien planet where the lower gravity makes us musical geniuses.

MR: Hmm, there’s something familiar about this story. Watch it be the truth…

SL: No one would believe you even if it was! [laugh] In terms of the band, Alex and I actually grew up together, we’ve known each other since preschool, we grew up right down the street from each other. Then throughout middle school and high school we learned how to play music together. We played in a lot of bands together, a lot of different types of bands; some typical garage rock bands, some cover bands, played some instrumental, broody post-rock music. Magic Man, we started in the summer after our freshman year of college. It was the first thing we’d done together that really felt like something we could take pretty far. We self-produced and self-released our first album as Magic Man in winter of 2010, but that was when we were in college, so we weren’t really focusing on the music full time. We played a lot of basement shows, house parties, frat parties, did a little bit of touring, but really we were in school so that was taking up a lot of our time. But during that time, the band evolved from the two-piece of Alex and I to a five-piece band. We started focusing our sound more on a full rock band sound, still using a lot of the electronics and synths from when it was just the two of us and a laptop, but we tried to focus it on a more energetic, rock-oriented show. That’s kind of how the band developed the sound we have now, playing shows with the full band and writing with that sort of sweaty house party show in mind, trying to keep as much of that energy there in the music as we could.

MR: Is that how the creative process takes place? You and Alex create the core of the songs and then take it to the rest of the members?

SL: That’s exactly right. Alex and I usually come up with the songs. I’ll come to Alex with a chord progression or beat and he’ll come to me with a lyric or a melody or something like that and we’ll build the song up from there, get it to a demo state with just the two of us, and then bring it to the band to learn how to play live and to record.

MR: Do you guys come from Boston proper or one of the suburbs?

SL: We’re from a suburb called Newton.

MR: Do you think growing up in that part of the world had an influence on your creativity at all?

SL: I would say where we’re from definitely had an influence, particularly because Newton is obviously a relatively wealthy community and our parents were very supportive of our music. I don’t know how common it is everywhere, but starting in fourth grade we started playing the recorder. That was horrible. We were all really bad at it, but pretty soon after that, I took up an instrument in the school band. Newton South High School had a really good music scene. In Newton in general, there were a lot of kids playing music. Kids in bands playing in their parents’ garages or basements or wherever. I definitely feel like maybe not so much the geography of where we’re from, but the people influenced us definitely.

Alex Caplow: The mentality, yeah. The standard for what kind of music kids were playing in high school bands was far higher than just being in a jam band or playing covers. Everyone was sort of feeding off of each other’s creative energy. It wasn’t really enough to just jam out. People wanted to come see real bands with original music, so everyone was very, very passionate about their projects and about joining lots of different bands.

MR: So there was something in the dirty water.

AC: Yes.

SL: Yeah, yeah, there was definitely something in the dirty water!

MR: This is sort of an obvious question for someone as old as I am, but “Magic Man” to me references Heart’s song “Magic Man.” I’m imagining you’ve come across that a time or two.

SL: [laughs] Oh yeah.

AC: Yeah, we do come across it. It’s a great song but it’s also a coincidence. The story behind the band name is actually that when we were writing the first Magic Man songs we were in France, working on organic farms the summer after our freshman year of college. Sam was learning French. My mother is French, so I was happy to come join him. We met a lot of really interesting characters while we were there and writing music on his laptop during the day when it was too hot to work. One of the farms we were working at was hosting this circus festival by chance, so there were just hundreds of really crazy characters–jugglers, magicians–and we were doing more pitching circus tents than farming. The first person that we met was a young guy, around our age, who was an aspiring magician who called himself “The Magic Man.” He didn’t speak English very well, but he was this guy who showed us the ropes and was our first friend that we made and the first supporter of our music. He was the first to hear the songs we were working on at the time, so when we were thinking of what we should call this project, we decided we should name it after him.

MR: That’s a great story. Who influenced you guys?

SL: We listen to a ton of different music and try not to get bogged down or pigeonhole ourselves into one or two genres, especially when we’re working. We love listening to everything from Top Forty stuff to more obscure underground music. I feel like everything brings something to the table that gives you an interesting perspective. Then sometimes you hear something you like and you can steal it and use it in your own music.

AC: During the first songs that we wrote, we were listening to a lot of Arcade Fire and Postal Service and The Killers. I grew up listening to a lot of Coldplay, so we have a lot of that line between pop and alternative rock and electronic music, where all those circles intersect. That’s where we were trying to go with it, to take you to the best of all those worlds.

MR: And now comes the part of the story where the low-gravity alien gets signed to The Daily Planet…I mean Sony. How did that happen?

SL: Well, Derek [Davies] and Lizzy [Plapinger,] two good friends of ours who run the label Neon Gold had an imprint deal with Columbia. They signed our first album, Real Life Colors. We had put it up on BandCamp giving it away for free. We got some attention from blogs. It ended up on Pitchfork and a bunch of other blogs, which was great and we had some great feedback from fans. And at that point, we were kind of thinking, “We’re going to make a second album and we’re just going to do it the same way we recorded our first album. We’ll record it ourselves, produce it ourselves, friends will play on the record, and friends will help us make it.” All of a sudden, Neon Gold, our favorite label, one that’s released a ton of stuff we look up to, got in touch of us. It’s sort of like a dream come true, them wanting to work with us.

AC: It was hard to stay focused in school when that deal was presented to us. My future was no longer becoming a psychologist. I was dreading not knowing what I was going to do after school. I didn’t want to go to grad school. Then all of a sudden, we had this record deal and it was like, “You can be a musician as your occupation!” It was a great way to graduate.

MR: Congratulations! So the next step, obviously is a full album. Is this EP a sampling of what’s going to appear on that?

SL: Yeah, we recorded it in the same sessions. Once we graduated from school, we holed-up in a home studio in Providence, Rhode Island, where we moved after we graduated and really spent a year or more crafting these songs and taking ones we’d written in college and improving them. Last summer, we took those songs, we went to New York and worked with a producer there, a producer named Alex Aldi. We built the songs up from the demos and did some additional production and mixing and ended up with the songs that are now on You Are Here and Before The Waves, our album. It’s definitely a similar sonic palette, but hopefully on the album, there’s a little more variety, more room to tell a narrative and have the journey from the start of the album to the end.

MR: It’s interesting that your EP includes three songs with geographical shout outs…”Texas,” “Paris,” and “Nova Scotia.”

AC: Yeah, we actually have songs called “Chicagoland” and “South Dakota” on the album as well.

MR: Does this reveal a subconscious desire to travel the world as the band Magic Man?

SL: Alex is actually a South Dakota native from a past life; he’s been reincarnated and is inhabiting his alien body with the spirit of a South Dakotan. What do you call someone from South Dakota? Dakotan? Decoded?

AC: A South Coyote.

SL: It wasn’t something that we consciously set out to do, but we did name the EP You Are Here kind of thinking of those geographically-named songs. Once we were putting the songs together for the EP and album, we liked the connection. Writing about places is something that we’ve done for a long time. You can see a bunch that didn’t end up on the album that use the same tricks. It’s kind of a fun exercise, to write about how a place makes you feel or what it means to you, or to use it as a jumping off point for a song, especially being people who really like to travel and being a band that started when Alex and I were traveling. Thinking about how a place might inspire you is always a good place to start a song. You might end up with something that has nothing to do with the place by the time you’re finished, but that spark sometimes is sometimes a good way to come up with an idea.

AC: Yeah, one of our favorite songs was called “Tokyo.” Tokyo inspired the song, but it didn’t end up being about anything related to Tokyo so we thought that would be confusing. It was hard to change that name, but it was probably for the best.

MR: You could have an album filled with the names of places even though the songs have nothing to do with them.

SL: Yeah, Bon Iver’s second album has a bunch of songs named after places and I’m not sure what they have to do with the songs, but I’ve always liked them. It also gives a good image to the listener, I think. You think about the place in addition to what the lyrics are saying and how they relate.

MR: Who does most of what during the creative process?

AC: We both have different expertise. Sam is definitely more towards the production side and I lean more towards the melodic and lyrics side. It’s often that Sam has a beat or a chord progression and then I write a vocal melody over it and some gibberish lyrics and we pass it back and forth. There are other times when Sam totally changes the melodies or I start off with the initial groove. It’s really just a fully collaborative process.

MR: And the lyrics?

SL: We’re both definitely involved in the lyrics. On some songs, one person will write all of the lyrics and we’ll love it and only change a few things. Other times, we’ll sit down together and one of us will contribute a verse and the other will contribute a chorus. It ranges, totally. Some of the songs I can point to and say, “Alex wrote this,” and others I can say, “I wrote the majority of that,” but the majority of the songs are a collaboration. We start with something that someone came up with, but by the time we’re done it’s something we put equal amounts into.

AC: It is interesting to think about, because I’ve heard that for most singer-songwriters, the lyrics come first, that the core of the song is like the story they start telling. For us, we put a lot more energy into making sure the song works on its own without the lyrics. We focus on the feel and melodies and the sound that we want to go for, so I record gibberish lyrics for all the songs before we actually write the lyrics. I know I want it to go… [rhythmic verbiage], so I know exactly what sound I want to be there, and then we fit in the lyrics after to make sure it fits with the mood of the song. But first, we make sure that it stands on its own without lyrics at all.

MR: I’ve often wondered how bands stay together when the song concepts only come from the lead singer.

AC: It’s all the groupies.

SL: [laughs] The fact is we all do the same amount of work when we’re on tour. We all get the same benefits. It’s just a great lifestyle that we all enjoy. The other members of the band, while they don’t write the songs directly, they’re all songwriters themselves and they have the time to work on their own projects, so they definitely continue to fill creatively fulfilled even if it’s not through this particular project. And during practice, we all throw around tons of ideas and build the songs back up for the live show. It’s definitely a collaboration.

MR: What advice do you have for new artists?

AC: I would say that one of the things that helped us the most in reaching an audience was putting our first album out for free. Just focusing on sharing it with as many people as possible and not at all focusing on the money side of things. We knew that most importantly, we wanted people to hear the songs and if they liked them, they would share them with their friends. That’s how we built our fan base. The album was free and that blogs would post about it and say, “It’s free! Just click on this link to get the album, it’s actually pretty good!” So I would recommend that if you’re trying to get started, really send it around to as many people as possible.

SL: On that note, one thing that’s been pretty helpful for me on this journey so far is to remember that the reason you’re doing what you’re doing is because there are people out there who are supporting you, like the fans. They’re the reason you’re there. You wouldn’t be doing it if it weren’t for them. In the same vein, you try to give back or try to appreciate them. Sometimes there’s a show you don’t want to do because you’re tired and it’s been a long time and for you, it’s just another show. But for them? iI’s the show they’ve been really wanting to see or they’re just trying to have a good time that night. It’s important to remember that while you’re doing it for yourself because it’s your art, there are a lot of other people that are keeping you doing what you’re doing.

AC: Respond to their tweets, show them that you care and it will turn them into a life-long fan.

MR: What’s the goal down the road?

SL: Have you seen the show Pinky & The Brain?

MR: So this is about world domination.

SL: Yup. World domination. But in all seriousness, I think our goal is what I was just saying. We love playing music, we love writing music, we love touring and playing shows, so we want to be able to do that as long as we can. Now that our album is done, we’re focusing on the touring side of things, trying to play for as many different people as possible, travel to new cities and new countries even and play as many shows as possible. Once that touring cycle wraps up, I’m excited to get back in the studio and lather, rinse, repeat.

MR: And hope the magic happens again.

SL: Yes.

MR: Has this interrogation missed anything?

SL: In terms of important dates, our album’s coming out July 8th, you can preorder it now on iTunes.

AC: And you get stuff immediately for pre-ordering…

MR: Like a secret decoder ring?

SL: …and also on July 8th, we’re starting a west coast headline tour from San Diego to Vancouver and then after that we’re going to be on tour with Panic! At The Disco for pretty much the rest of the summer. We’ll be traveling over a lot of the US, so hopefully, we’ll be able to see as many people as we can and play a lot of shows.

Dirty Talk


Want some Dirty Talk? It’s an erotic short story that’s sure to arouse your senses. While Greg’s wife is sleeping, Greg’s having fun playing with his favorite phone sex operator. Erotica that titillates by the author of My Wife’s A Gangbang Addict, Hard To Swallow and more.EXCERPT:Greg’s loins were gearing for action. Earlier, he had put on his computer and surfed, looking for some porn. He saw some beautiful tits and asses and watched some hot couples doing it online on some videos. He wanted something more personal. This was the perfect time to call Roxy he decided, the phone sex operator he had been calling for about 6 months, on and off. He felt that phone sex was the best way to get sexual gratification without cheating. He looked up her toll-free number and dialed.”Are you naked right now?” Roxy asked provocatively.”Yes, I am.” Greg had removed his pants and his cotton briefs were pulled down, before placing the call. She couldn’t see his shirt so there was no need to mention it. “Where are you and what are you wearing, Roxy?””I’m lying in my bed with some of my favorite toys. I’m wearing my lacy black bra and stockings.” She took off her white blouse as she said it, getting in the right mood for their sexual fantasy.”Take off your bra. I want to lick your nipples.” Greg thought he heard her unclip the back of her brassiere.”I’m topless. My nipples are getting really hard. Suck on them, Greg.” “That’s it, baby. I could feel the warmth of your mouth devouring my left nipple.” Roxy’s soft moaning began.”Mind if I use my magic wand, Greg?” Roxy already knew the answer. Greg loved hearing the noise of the vibrator and the effect it had on Roxy’s voice. Just hearing her made his cock instantly erect.
