Hubert de Givenchy, George H.W. Bush, Kate Spade, Stan Lee in Their Own Words

Hindsight, foresight, oversight — depending on perspective, all may apply to words spoken by some of the more established cultural figures who died in the past year.
Over the years, WWD sat down with numerous designers, politicians and writers to reveal their ambitions and obstacles alike. Here are a few of the more memorable lines spoken by some who helped to define the world we live in.
Hubert de Givenchy
“Mine is one of the most beautiful professions in fashion: making others happy with an idea.”
“Balenciaga was my religion,” Givenchy said, explaining that he assembled more than 1,000 dresses for the collection of the Spanish designer’s creations. “Since I’m a believer, for me, there’s Balenciaga and the good Lord. Balenciaga had a sense of construction of clothes. He did things that were intelligent, which isn’t the case today. People are interested in glitz.”
“Fashion’s over. There are bags and shoes that are more and more ugly. That’s all. There are perfumes and everyone talks of luxury. But for me, luxury is, in part, to be well-dressed.”

Grieving Dad’s Words of Love After Son Was ‘Lured’ Into Woods in Rape and Murder: ‘I Will Always Honor Him’

In the wake of what authorities described as his 16-year-old son’s brutal rape and murder at the hands of a longtime friend, Washington dad Benjamin Eastman Jr.’s repeated message has been one of “love and togetherness.”

“I want thank the community and friends for all they have done for my family,” Eastman, who goes by “B.J.,” posted Thursday on Facebook, adding that words could not “explain the love feel right now.”

“There’s no way could ever get through this without it,” he wrote. “I would like everyone to remember my son how they want to but most of all how he has made our community and other communities far and wide stop and forget about judgment and hate.”

“Our community is full of love and togetherness right now,” he concluded his post. “My son made the world a better place. He continues to do so and I will always honor him for that. I ask that we all focus on that.”

Prosecutors say it’s too early in the case to discuss a possible motive in the beating death of Benjamin “Ben” Eastman III a week after his birthday — but the details released so far have attracted international attention.

Meanwhile, his community in southwestern Washington has drawn closer together in the shadow of such a vicious crime.

“When you have a county as close-knit and tight as Lewis and a town like Randle, which is even smaller, a tragic incident like this is going to impact everybody,” Lewis County Prosecuting Attorney Jonathan Meyer tells PEOPLE.

Charging documents previously obtained by PEOPLE show how, according to investigators, Ben was tricked into going in the woods sometime after texting early on June 24 with another 16-year-old boy, Benito Marquez, a friend and classmate who had known Ben for years.

Marquez and his older brother, 21-year-old Jonathon Adamson, “lured” Ben “under the guise of a camping trip,” prosecutors said in a probable cause affidavit.

There the pair allegedly carried out an assault they had planned together: striking Ben for some “20 to 45 minutes” and kicking him more than 100 times. During the attack, Ben was sexually assaulted with a stick, according to the affidavit.

Adamson and Marquez beat him in the head with a large rock, just to make sure he was dead, authorities believe.

Finally, they allegedly buried his body on the property of a relative where it was discovered three days later, after Ben was reported missing by his father. His shallow grave was marked with a homemade cross of sticks.

Marquez, who had seemingly posted on Facebook asking for help finding Ben before his body was discovered, was an early subject of the investigation, according to authorities. But he and Adamson then allegedly fled the county, traveling some 200 miles east, before being found by the state patrol on June 29, the probable cause affidavit states.

They were each interviewed by police and subsequently charged with first-degree rape and murder as well as tampering with physical evidence and unlawful disposal of remains, the affidavit states.

Detention records confirm they remain in custody in Lewis County in lieu of $ 10 million bond.

They have not entered pleas and an attorney representing them declined to comment to PEOPLE. They are scheduled to return to court on Thursday.

While B.J., Ben’s dad, has spoken out about the suspects and sat front row in court at their first hearing, on Monday, he has largely kept the focus on his boy.

“I want everyone to remember the love we feel for each other,” he posted on Facebook Friday, following a vigil for Ben. “My son will live in our hearts.”

He also offered this: “Remember to smile or say hi to a stranger.”

Speaking to local TV station KOMO earlier this week, B.J. said, “It’s easy to get caught up in the negative aspect of this, but I remember my son and his smile.”

“There is evil people out there,” B.J. said then. “I don’t know what makes them tick. I don’t want to know. I’m loved and my son was loved and that’s all I’m about.”

Prosecutor Meyer tells PEOPLE Ben’s death — the violence and intimacy of it — is “hard to put into words.”

“Ben was a nice kid from a good family,” he says.

Others who knew the teen have also paid tribute to his love of the outdoors and sports, especially the Miami Dolphins, and his loyalty and light spirt.

“You’d be in a bad mood and he’d just walk in — you’d just be mad as mad as you could be and he’d just crack a smile and make you giggle just over anything, always,” Ben’s brother Derek Dunaway told KOMO.

“He really liked to stand up for his friends,” Principal Chris Schumaker told the Daily Chronicle after a vigil Tuesday night at Ben’s school, where he was a rising junior.

“A lot of the time, his friends would get in trouble because of his shenanigans and somehow he was able to kind of sidestep getting caught. So then towards the end he would kind of say, ‘Mr. Schumaker, it was kind of me, I deserve the detention,’ ” the principal recalled. “And I would say, ‘No, you know they did the crime, they get the time.’ He tried really hard to plea-deal consequences his friends earned. But in the end, I would just say ‘Ben, go back to class it’s okay. They’ll get through it, you’ll get through it. There’s always tomorrow.’ ”

Expert Baker Trolls Donald Trump With Cakes That Use His Own Words

Brooklyn baker Kat Thek is the brainchild behind Troll Cakes, a new bakery/detective agency that specializes in turning trolls’ mean internet comments into delicious cakes.

But it’s Thek’s “Tiny Hands Special” ― meant for President Trump ― that’s got our attention. This “bigly satisfying” deal means that for only $ 30, you can get one of Trump’s tweets or comments printed on a cake and sent straight to the White House. 

Below is an example of some of Trump’s comments paraphrased from an Associated Press interview on a Troll Cake: 

“It would be a tremendous, terrific mistake to deprive our nation’s noisiest troll of his incredibly deserved Troll Cakes,” Thek told HuffPost via email last week. “Our ‘Tiny Hands Special’ has been well received but it’s also gotten us asked if we’re skirting the line of terrorism. Here’s where we land on that: if putting the president’s exact words into icing on a cake is considered an act of terror, the problem is not the cake.” 

She added, “However, if the White House no longer wishes to receive Troll Cakes, we’re ready to reroute shipments to Mar-a-Lago. We are hopeful that the State Department will include Troll Cakes as a dining option in their next Mar-a-Lago ad.” 

“We’d also like to note that Trump’s decision to incorporate a cake description into his account of the recent Syrian missile strike (it was chocolate and ‘the most beautiful’) was not a sponsored Troll Cakes promotion,” Thek said jokingly. 

If you’d like to just take on a regular troll, there’s a $ 35 option in which the company will bake chocolate chip brownie cake, decorate it with frosting, sprinkles and the comment and then ship it to the troll’s home or work address. If you don’t know where the troll lives, the price goes up to $ 60. 

That means someone’s hateful comment like “Crash in a plane” would be turned into a yummy masterpiece like this. Eat it and weep, trolls: 

Internet comment –> Troll Cake Delivery included @ trollcakes.com #trollcakes

A post shared by Kat Thek (@kat_thek) on

Thek also told HuffPost about coming up with the concept of Troll Cakes and revealed the cake she recently made for one of Amy Schumer’s trolls. 

When did you start Troll Cakes? How did you come up with the concept? 

The troll that really sparked the whole enterprise was on Dolly Parton’s Facebook page. There was something simultaneously infuriating and hilarious about seeing somebody try to bully Dolly Parton. I mean, who would do that? And is the goal to hurt Dolly’s feelings? She’s a 71-year-old millionaire who grew up in a one-room cabin and now wears sequined jumpsuits — a poorly spelled Facebook post isn’t going to take the spring out of her step one bit.

Trolling anyone, especially Dolly Parton, is like aggressively giving the finger to a sunset or a panda or bag of craisins. You’re just letting everybody around you know that you’re a grumpy idiot. It’s fun to maintain that idiocy but then flip the grumpy into something obnoxiously cheerful, like a surprise cake in the mail. 

What do you like most about Troll Cakes? 

Troll Cakes combines our deep interest in cake, catty comments, the mail, being nosy, and having a reason to speak like Julia Child. Putting all of those things together saves a lot of time. 

Why do you call yourselves a detective agency as well? 

We’re a full service operation ― if you don’t know your troll’s home or work address, we’ll track ‘em down.  

What else should we know about Troll Cakes? 

We love sending Troll Cakes between friends ― some of our favorite deliveries have been one friend trolling another for oversharing on Facebook. 

We made the attached “You Donkey Witch” Troll Cake from a comment on Amy Schumer’s instagram and then made a Twitter account to holler at Amy to see if she’d like us to send. No news yet: 

We’re going to start taking Thek’s message to heart ― if you see something, cake something: 

See something? Cake something. #trollcakes

Walt Disney’s Last Words Were ‘Kurt Russell,’ According To Kurt Russell

When it comes to the legend of Walt Disney’s final statement, Kurt Russell has the last word.

Disney Studios has always been a huge part of the actor’s career. He signed a 10-year contract with the studio early on and now Russell is starring as Star-Lord’s dad, Ego, in Disney and Marvel’s upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” Still, his connection to the company goes well beyond business. 

As a kid, Russell had a close, personal relationship with Walt Disney. The industry pioneer thought so highly of the young actor that a legend surfaced claiming Disney’s last words were actually “Kurt Russell.”

In fact, it’s more than legend, according to Russell. It’s true. 

Disney died in 1966 when Russell was still a teen. The actor says he learned about Disney’s last words a couple of years later.

In a recent interview, Russell told HuffPost, “They pulled me into the office a couple years after he died, and this woman — who I don’t believe it was his secretary, but it might’ve been, I don’t know ― pointed to [something he wrote] and she said, ‘Do you know what that’s about?’ And I said, ‘No, I don’t.’[She said], ‘Because he wrote something after it. But then he went back up and he wrote your name. That was the last thing he wrote.’ And I said, ‘Oh gee. I don’t know what it’s connected to.’”

Was it because Disney considered Russell a friend? Was it for a movie role? Who knows?

Russell said he’s been asked about it for years, but he doesn’t know any more than that. “She was pointing out that that’s the last thing he wrote. That’s the only thing I know.”

The actor said Disney was very important in his life and he learned a “tremendous amount” from him. Russell’s stories are even more unbelievable than learning Disney’s last words.

“We did have a personal relationship. We played Ping-Pong at lunch sometimes. He’d come down to set. We’d go watch movies that the studio was making, and he’d come down and ask if I wanted to go see them. He’d took me around and introduced me to all the different departments at Disney, and at one point gave me a bunch of original photo cells that they make the backdrop drawings of the characters and stuff like that,” said Russell.

“There were many, many things that I connected with him [on],” he continued. “He reminded me a lot of my own grandfather. My grandfather was a creative and sort of inventive man, and they were not dissimilar in their demeanor, too.”

Apparently, Disney even liked to give Russell career advice. The actor’s family has a deep connection to professional baseball; his dad, Bing Russell, ended up owning a minor league baseball team — a “unique” minor league baseball team (which is the subject of the documentary “The Battered Bastards of Baseball”). Kurt played pro baseball himself for a while, too. Disney told him early on that he didn’t think it was for him.

“I was very comfortable around him, and I had a great time with him, great relationship, and it was very important. He said to me, ‘Baseball might not be something that you end up doing as a career.’ He said, ‘I think you might want to look at things in this business because I think your going to have a long career.’ So he did have a strong effect on me,” recalled Russell.

After an injury reportedly slowed his baseball dreams, Russell became an actor again, and Disney’s prediction of a long career came true. 

“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” is now set to be one of the biggest box-office successes of the actor’s career, and it’s coming on the heels of another one of the his movies, “Fate of the Furious,” which is soon passing $ 1 billion worldwide

Russell said, “It’s just serendipitous the fact that they’re coming out literally back-to-back, so that’s kind of [an] amazing event.”

Or perhaps it’s just a bit of Disney magic.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theaters in May.

In Two Words and One Photo, Former Obama White House Photographer Schools Sarah Palin, Kid Rock and Ted Nugent on Respect

Another day, another lesson in subtle shade-throwing from former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza.

On Thursday, Souza — who has regularly used his Instagram account to compare and contrast the Trump and Obama administrations — took aim at a buzzed-about new photo of Trump supporters Sarah PalinKid Rock and Ted Nugent posing mockingly in front of a portrait of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during their Wednesday evening visit to the White House.

In an apparent clapback, Souza posted a throwback photo of former President Barack Obama and his White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley sitting solemnly beneath a portrait of Republican icon and former President Ronald Reagan.

“Being respectful,” Souza captioned the snapshot.

Though the photographer didn’t mention Palin, Nugent or Kid Rock in his post, his followers were quick to pick up on the signature Souza shade.

“Oh God, the juxtaposition of this photo with the photo of Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock sums up the sorry state of our country,” wrote one of Souza’s followers.

“You are the best, most low-key, delightful troll ever,” applauded another commenter.

RELATED VIDEO: Watch: Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

This isn’t the first time Souza has trolled President Donald Trump on Instagram. In the months since Trump’s inauguration, Souza has posted several photos of Obama and his team that, when juxtaposed with of-the-moment news about the Trump administration, offer subtle critiques of the new president.

In February, for example, Souza highlighted the lack of female leadership in Trump’s White House by sharing a photo of Obama meeting in the Oval Office with three top advisers, all of whom were women. “This is a full-frame picture,” Souza captioned. “I guess you’d say I was trying to make a point.”

Many others on social media also criticized Palin, Nugent and Kid Rock’s photo. Here’s what some people are saying:

Wrote The New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman: “Doesn’t matter what the political party is, it’s the White House, not a rally, and it’s an official portrait, not a cardboard cutout.”

Last Words: Jaymes Mansfield Reflects On Her Time On ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’

Throughout the ninth season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Huffington Post Queer Voices will interview each departing queen on the Saturday following the air date of their elimination episode. Check HuffPost Queer Voices weekly to hear these queens reflect on their time on the show and their legacy as queer artists and performers.

It’s that time of year again ― for the next few months, queers around the world will gather in bars every Friday night for what has become the Olympics of the LGBTQ community: “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

The ninth season of “Drag Race” marks a major turning point for the reality show. Not only has it moved from Logo to VH1 and shifted to a primetime slot on Friday nights, but RuPaul won an Emmy for his work after the show’s eighth season.

Among a host of other things, this monumental shift for the reality show means that the competition is fiercer than ever. The first queen to go home this season is the sweet and comedic Jaymes Mansfield hailing from Madison, Wisconsin. Mansfield had a bit of trouble finding her footing and was sent packing after a lip-sync against Las Vegas native Kimora Blac.

In this interview with The Huffington Post, Mansfield reflects on her brief time on “Drag Race,” being labeled “the underdog” and what she ultimately wants to do with her platform the show gave her.

The Huffington Post: You weren’t on the show for very long but do you feel like you grew and changed during your time on “Drag Race”? What did you learn?

Jaymes Mansfield: I learned that being eliminated off of a reality television show isn’t the worst thing in the world. And you learn to improve on things that were your shortcomings and to embrace the things that made you weird in the first place – the things that made them want to keep you. 

Do you feel you like the image of who you are ― and who you are as an artist ― was authentically portrayed on this show?

I feel like I was honest! [laughs] The person on the screen was me. 

How do you feel about being framed as “the underdog”? Did you identify with that label?

Being framed as an “underdog” doesn’t feel very good because I wanted to be framed as a strong competitor, not somebody with a bunch of shortcomings [laughs]. To be quite honest with you, as an artist and as a gay person we get a lot of – I come from a background of being bullied and constantly having to fight for who I was, so being in an element where, “oh now you’re an underdog!” It’s like, no, I’m not. I’m a strong competitor. 

What do you want to do with the platform that Drag Race has given you?First, I’m really thankful for this platform that I was given because it’s far beyond what I was before I got on the show. But I want to really conquer that medium of YouTube because I feel like it’s a really untapped entity. I have a lot more tutorials, a whole lot more content, especially movie reviews and drag history – I’m going to keep doing that until the end of time.

Do you see any important political implications with “Drag Race” being on such a mainstream network at this specific moment in time?

I would say it’s a good thing. As far as “Drag Race” being on a mainstream platform now, it’s really beautiful. I remember RuPaul was [on VH1] years and years ago and it’s really a homecoming for her and we really need things like drag now, especially being able to laugh and being able to have things that parody – public image and public figures. It’s an important thing – we need to be able to laugh and entertainment really does that for people.

Is there a particular queen that you’d like to see on a future season of “Drag Race”?

I would love to see somebody like Biblegirl or more legendary queens like Hedda Lettuce or Sherry Vine. 

Out of everyone left in the competition who are you rooting for?

J: Nobody! [laughs] I’m rooting for my girls Nina and Peppermint and Charlie. I hope they all do really well. But I wasn’t there long enough to hate anybody!

What do you want people to know about Jaymes Mansfield going forward?

That I’m a queen who truly cares about drag! And I’m a queen who will continue to talk up the importance of drag queens and our history until I’m blue in the face! That’s always what I’ve wanted to be remembered for is somebody who really and truly cares about drag and the preservation of drag.

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” airs on Friday nights at 8 PM ET/PT on VH1.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Footage Reveals Luke’s First Words to Rey

 

This article was originally published on EW.com.

It pays to be a Disney shareholder. While Star Wars fans are waiting on the first trailer for The Last Jedi, the House of Mouse screened top-secret footage from the eighth chapter in the Skywalker saga during a Disney shareholders meeting. Fortunately, we have a few details.

According to Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller, who tweeted out some movie morsels, the footage featured Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) asking Rey (Daisy Ridley), “Who are you?” before the prospective padawan “deftly” handles a lightsaber.

RELATED: See All of EW’s Star Wars Covers

Finn (John Boyega) and Chewbacca were also spotted, while Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa appeared briefly in military attire. Elsewhere in the footage, Miller reports sweeping scenes of “mountains, oceans, forests, deserts,” as well as “an X-Wing wobbling mid-air, under attack inside a giant ship.”

Read more below.

 

For now, that’s all we’re getting.

Disney revealed a sliver of footage of Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage to the public with its start-of-production video (see below). Compared to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the studio is keeping a trailer under wraps for a longer time. (Perhaps until Star Wars Celebration.) That might be because there’s a lot more going on in that galaxy far, far away — Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters just a few months ago, and the still-untitled Han Solo film recently kicked off production.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Looper‘s Rian Johnson, is expected in theaters on Dec. 15.

David Cassidy Slurs His Words And Falls Off Stage During Performance

Saturday was a rough night for David Cassidy, who fell off stage during a performance in Agoura, California.

TMZ posted a fan-shot video of the former “Partridge Family” star, who repeatedly slurred his words as both spoke and sang, told the crowd long, rambling stories, and frequently forgot the lyrics to his songs. The 66-year-old was also seen falling backward off the stage with his guitar strapped around his body.

Another fan-shot video captured the singer hitting himself in the face with a microphone after he struggled to remove it from its stand. 

Cassidy announced earlier this month that he was retiring after 50 years in show business, which he reiterated to the crowd at Saturday’s show.

The singer previously admitted he struggles with alcoholism, and has been arrested for driving under the influence multiple times

Request for comment made to Cassidy’s rep has yet to be returned at this time.

Ian McKellen’s Women’s March Sign Said More Than Words Ever Could

Of course we’d expect Sir Ian McKellen’s sign at the Women’s March to be amazing, but few could have predicted how truly perfect it ended up being.

McKellen, who reportedly attended a London event held in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington, brought a sign that included no words ― only an image of Sir Patrick Stewart, in the role of Star Trek’s Captain Picard, face-palming.

McKellen’s sign clearly references the hilarious, inspiring and well-documented friendship the two legendary actors share. This specific image has become a popular meme that people use to express total exasperation and disbelief with the idiocy of a person or a situation.

We can’t think of a better reaction to the status quo.

More Than Words

More Than Words


A brutal mugging two years ago left Calli terrified to go out after dark, and incapable of real dating. Hanging out with a resentful Chihuahua every night hasnt filled the void, and all the sex toys from the store she owns could never replace a flesh-and-blood man. An online Scrabble site promising anonymous, flirty fun sounds like just the ticket. A like-minded geek, thats what she needs. Unbeknownst to her, the man on the other end of the game is anything but geeky. Tired of the party scene, Travis seeks a venue where he can meet a woman who is drawn to his mind, not his profession. Having women chase after his bad-boy musician persona has grown stale. After heating up the tiles online with Calli, he knows he must meet her in person. Touch her in person. And when he does, their chemistry is undeniable. She stimulates him, mind and body. But when he discovers her tragic past he realizes it will take more than words to win her heart…and her trust.

First Words

First Words


An internationally acclaimed novelist and journalist movingly chronicles her childhood in Rome during World War II, providing a rare account by a Catholic of Jewish persecution and Papal responsibility In 1937, Rosetta Loy was a privileged five-year-old growing up in the heart of the well-to-do Catholic intelligentsia of Rome. But her childhood world of velvet and lace, airy apartments, indulgent nannies, and summers in the mountains was also the world of Mussolini’s fascist regime and the increasing oppression of Italian Jews. Loy interweaves the two Italys of her early years, shifting with powerful effect from a lyrical evocation of the many comforts of her class to the accumulation of laws stipulating where Jews were forbidden to travel and what they were not allowed to buy, eat, wear, and read. She reveals the willful ignorance of her own family as one by one their neighbors disappeared, and indicts journalists and intellectuals for their blindness and passivity. And with hard-won clarity, she presents a dispassionate record of the role of the Vatican and the Catholic leadership in the devastation of Italy’s Jews. Written in crystalline prose, First Words offers an uncommon perspective on the Holocaust. In the process, Loy reveals one writer’s struggle to reconcile her memories of a happy childhood with her adult knowledge that, hidden from her young eyes, one of the world’s most horrifying tragedies was unfolding.

The Gettysburg Address: Using Lincoln’s Words to Tell the Whole Story of America’s Civil War, 1776 to the Present

The Gettysburg Address: Using Lincoln’s Words to Tell the Whole Story of America’s Civil War, 1776 to the Present


”Four score and seven years ago … ” They’re the famous opening words of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address delivered in 1863, and they point back to the founding year of the United States: 1776. To understand the issues involved in the Civil War, it’s necessary to go that far back in American history. Based on the founding fathers’ vision for America, how free were the states to leave the Union if they wanted to? Did the federal government have the power and right to stop them? What did Lincoln really think about the issues of slavery and race?Those are just some of the questions this graphic novel examines. Divided into sections corresponding to the phrases of the Gettysburg Address, this is an enlightening read that brings the reader face to face with the complex historical issues behind the Civil War. More than just a comic book, it goes surprisingly in-depth and shows the causes of the Civil War were not as simple as you may think.Product DetailsDimensions: 6” W x 9” HSoftcover graphic novel, 224 pages, by Jonathan HennesseyArt by Aaron McConnellISBN: 978-0-06-196976-8

�Puro Conjunto!: An Album in Words and Pictures (CMAS Colecci�n Cultura


From the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas to East L.A. to the barrios of Chicago, people are listening to the heartfelt, accordion-driven sounds of conjunto. Born in South Texas in the 1920s, conjunto has become popular throughout the United States, Mexico, and, of late, Europe and Japan. But Texas remains the heart of conjunto music making. Indeed, the largest conjunto festival in the world is the Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio, founded in 1982.�Puro Conjunto! is a wide-ranging collection of writings taken from the festival’s program magazine, Tonantzin. These writings include scholarly essays, articles by journalists and music critics, interviews with legendary performers, autobiographical accounts, short stories, and poetry. Their subjects include the history of conjunto music, its signature instruments, the social context and functions of conjunto, and personal histories of conjunto music giants. Most of these pieces have never been published elsewhere. Photos and full-color reproductions of the festival posters accompany the text. This collection should interest conjunto and folk-music fans, as well as students and scholars. Like the music, this book can be used in a variety of ways: as an entertaining survey of the genre, a valuable supplement to college textbooks, or a handy resource for research.

Donald Trump, John Oliver Engage In War Of Words

Donald Trump has a new target… and it’s not a political rival or a debate moderator

Trump is feuding with John Oliver after the comic and host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” said on Friday he has no interest in having GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump on the show.

On Saturday, Trump took to Twitter to claim he already rejected an offer to appear: 

That wasn’t the end of it. 

The team behind ”Last Week Tonight” fired back on Sunday with a message that Oliver retweeted from his personal account

Oliver told “CBS This Morning” on Friday that he has doesn’t care about Trump “in any capacity.” 

“There’s nothing else to add. He’s said everything he wants to say,” Oliver said. ”There’s no internal monologue, that man, so it’s not like you’re going to find the secret nugget he’s been holding back.”

Ceasefire Over: Donald Trump Resumes War Of Words With Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly, host of “The Kelly File” on Fox News, is back from vacation — and Donald Trump wasted no time resuming his attacks on her. 

Shortly after Monday night’s broadcast, Kelly’s first since Aug. 12, Trump fired off a series of tweets critical of her, including a retweet in which she was called a “bimbo” and another that remarked on her looks

Here’s the Republican presidential candidate’s reaction to the broadcast, which featured an interview with teacher and activist Cornel West:

Trump has been feuding with Kelly since the Republican debate on Aug. 6, saying she was unfair to him by asking about the misogynistic insults he has directed at women over the years.

Hours after the debate, Trump sent out a series of tweets and retweets attacking her. Then, he infamously said she had “blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her — wherever.”  Trump later claimed “wherever” referred to her nose.

Shortly after the Trump tirade, Kelly went on vacation, which Trump implied was “probably” because of fallout over the debate. However, Fox News said the vacation had been planned.

The attacks on Kelly reportedly led to a phone call between Trump and Fox News chairman Roger Ailes in which the two agreed to an apparent ceasefire

Based on Trump’s tweets late Monday, the ceasefire may be over.

“After Words” Showcases Marcia Gay Harden’s Talent

Movie Review – Jackie K Cooper
“After Words” (Level 33 Entertainment)

Marcia Gay Harden can do no wrong. Any role she undertakes ends up being a special one just because of her talent, charm and charisma. In her latest film “After Words”, she portrays a single woman in her forties who is at the end of her rope. She has a plan to end her life but delays it until after a trip to Costa Rica. Watching Harden go from a beaten plain Jane to a woman on the cusp of a wonderful life makes for grand movie entertainment.

Jane (Harden) is a librarian in Los Angeles, going through the motions of her life but without any real enthusiasm about it. When her employment is terminated due to a downturn in the economy she takes her savings and splurges on a trip to Costa Rica. Suddenly Jane is a woman with a plan. She will go to a foreign land and while there she will end her sad, dull life.

Juan (Oscar Jaenada) is a man whose life does have purpose. He works to earn enough money to provide his daughter Anna (Jenna Ortega) with some of the good things of life. This particularly means an education at an American school in Costa Rica. He sees this as a way to guarantee her the best opportunities possible. It is expensive but Juan is willing to do what it takes to keep Anna there.

What Juan sometimes does is act as a tour guide. And sometimes his tour guide service provides the older ladies who hire him with something extra in the romance department. When Juan spies Jane he sees a perfect client. The rest of the movie focuses on the effect Juan has on Jane and Jane has on Juan.

Director Juan Feldman paces his story perfectly. The friendship between these two flawed human beings takes time to come to fruition. Juan is friendly and charming but it will take more than that to change Jane’s plans to end it all. Plus there is always the possibility the time in Costa Rica will be the perfect note on which to end it all.

Harden’s Jane is a character who sticks with you after the movie ends. She has many transitions and all are played with truth and believability. Jaenada’s Juan is the perfect counterpoint to her depressing aura. He is so alive, and so eager to please that it would be a crime not to enjoy his world. You certainly are able to see what he sees in her and what she sees in him.

This movie is a romantic fantasy and it must be accepted as that to be enjoyed. You can quibble that someone of Jane’s age must have some friends and/or relatives. You can also nitpick that protected hearts can not open up to adventure so quickly. But if you go with the flow and just accept the story as presented you will have a grand time with it.

The film is not rated.

“After Words” is similar to an old Katherine Hepburn film titled “Summertime”. In it she played a “spinster” on a European vacation who finds love. Hepburn made it all believable and Harden does too. So immerse yourself in the beauty of the Costa Rica setting and let your heart open up to a romantic fantasy.

I scored “After Words” a holiday 6 out of 10.

Comedian Grace Helbig Credits All Her Success To These Three Words

Comedian Grace Helbig is a YouTube phenomenon, the star of her own new show on E! and a New York Times bestselling author, but the self-proclaimed “awkward older sister” says she owes all her success to failure.

In a commencement speech she delivered Friday at her alma mater, Ramapo College, Helbig, 29, recalled an epiphany she had while working an unfulfilling office job while dreaming of being a professional comedian.

“Quite honestly I think it is way more terrifying to be boring than to be a failure,” she said. “Failures are what make you interesting, and they’re what give you perspective and they’re what get you millions of views on YouTube.”

That mindset, she told the graduates, comes from a mantra she picked up while doing improv in New York after graduating in 2007: “Follow your fear.”

“When you’re uncomfortable, that’s when things get really interesting,” she said. “The more I kept doing improv and the more I kept following my fear, the more I realized that being uncomfortable is truly being alive,” Helbig added later. “The only thing you can do in this life is pursue your passions, celebrate your bloopers and never stop following your fear.”

That philosphy, she explained, led her to one of her most laughable learning experiences.

“I’ve auditioned for SNL in front of Lorne Michaels wearing a belly chain and doing my best Jersey girl accent. Oh my gawd, can you believe I didn’t get cast?” she said, flipping on the accent. “Oh my gawd.”

Emma Stone Says Her ‘Heart Swells Up’ When She Hears Andrew Garfield’s ‘Poetic’ Words

Everyone’s favorite Hollywood couple, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, may have split in April, but the actress can still appreciate Garfield’s way with words.

The “Aloha” star sat down with Diane Keaton for her cover story in Interview magazine, for which the two reflected on their careers and shared movie memories. During the interview, Keaton also quoted something Garfield said about Stone in the actresses’ July 2012 cover issue of Vogue.

“Andrew Garfield said, ‘Working with Emma was like diving into a thrilling, twisting river and never holding on to the sides,'” Keaton says to Stone. “‘From the start. To the end. Spontaneous. In the moment. Present. Terrifying. Vital. The only way acting with someone should be.’ My God. I mean, what did you feel when you heard such a dream-come-true observation?”

Stone praised Garfield: “He is such a poet,” she said, laughing. “But that’s the way he writes in general. So I hear it and of course my heart swells up. And I also know that he writes things like that on a daily basis.”

Although Stone and Garfield had previously dated since 2011, the two reportedly broke up last month over what sources cited as issues with long distance. However, Stone’s Interview with Keaton took place in March, before the split, according to People magazine. Either way, we’re going to pretend Garfield is still writing his heart-swelling poetry every day.

The “Into the Woods” actor took to the stage to honor Shep Gordon, storied talent manager and the subject of Mike Myers’ documentary “Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon,” and proceeded to slur his speech, swear and wobble around.

“I’m not very good at this kind of thing,” Depp said at the start, after commenting on the “weird microphone.” Maybe he was just being modest: Depp has presented at numerous awards shows in the past without a hitch, including the 2009 Golden Globes Awards. Perhaps, like Depp said, it was “just one of those nights.” Watch the speech above and decide for yourself.

Words By The Water

Words By The Water


William Jay Smith has been one of the most respected figures on the literary scene for more than half a century. Two of his thirteen poetry collections were finalists for the National Book Award, and the present volume is clearly the work of a true American master.The volume opens with a poetic sequence, The Atoll, concerning the tiny coral island of Palmyra during World War II. Finding himself on the narrow rim of an extinct volcano at almost the exact center of the Pacific, water on all sides, breakers pounding the reef, the poet evokes the distinct sensation that he had of being at the heart of Herman Melville''s oceans vast. In lines resonant and memorable, he recalls the terrifying beauty of standing at night on what seemed then the very edge of the earth.The poet next addresses our current daily terror-war and destruction. In Invitation to Ground Zero he presents a moving tribute to a victim of the September 11 disaster, while in Willow Wood a soldier, having recently lost both his legs in a roadside blast, utters without a trace of self-pity strong words on future wars. Tragedy marks many of these pages, but Smith does not forget his lifelong commitment to witty and satiric verse. To introduce several hilarious pieces, he reprints the celebrated poem Dachshunds. Simplicity and musicality have given his wedding songs a wide audience. Several of them are here, including an extraordinary new one, The Bouquet.Variety has always characterized Smith''s work. Words by the Water is particularly varied and unusually youthful and fresh.

Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer

Hint Fiction: An Anthology of Stories in 25 Words or Fewer


A story collection that proves less is more.The stories in this collection run the gamut from playful to tragic, conservative to experimental, but they all have one thing in common: they are no more than 25 words long. Robert Swartwood was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s possibly apocryphal six-word story—”For Sale: baby shoes, never worn”—to foster the writing of these incredibly short-short stories. He termed them “hint fiction” because the few chosen words suggest a larger, more complex chain of events. Spare and evocative, these stories prove that a brilliantly honed narrative can be as startling and powerful as a story of traditional length. The 125 gemlike stories in this collection come from such best-selling and award-winning authors as Joyce Carol Oates, Ha Jin, Peter Straub, and James Frey, as well as emerging writers.

Aerosol Texting: The Power Of Words On City Walls

Brief Analog Messages On Walls Ape Our Digit-Driven Discourse

Whether satire, slogan, or soliloquy, the anonymous street scribe shapes our experience while we walk through the city.

Boffo or blustery, a piece of poetry can sling or sting your unsuspecting heart as you round the corner or look above your head and a rallying cry will bring color to your cheeks or dread into your head. A well-crafted counterpoint can clearly confound and a cleverly flipped script will turn up your lips, but no-one can crack some cryptic confessionals or meandering non sequitors that pop and squirm under your quizzical gaze.

Whether cute or contentious, the hand-rendered words that we daily see on walls throughout the city are all speaking to us in a cooly comforting lo-fi handwritten way across the bricks and mortar, but somehow they often obey a 140 character limit too. Mercifully brief, as if targeted to our hurried pace and tightly tailored for the twitter-brained among us, these textual communications are looking for a more general audience, but an audience nonetheless.

And here we are. Today we look at a kaleidoscopic collection caught by photographer Jaime Rojo, cobbled together here for you.
