Vic and Bob, interview: 'What do modern comedians do? Do they just tell long,...

Vic and Bob are bringing their Big Night Out back to the BBC. The Christmas special, which will be followed by a four-part series, includes a jaunty song about trousers, a skit on First Dates, a punch-up, Ed Sheeran, some “observation comedy” and a baker from Wisconsin selling “perfuffle” cakes. You should see the stuff that didn’t make the edit, says Vic. “There were some spectacular moments, like when we tried to get a horse on the stage.” A horse? “We wanted to look under it and see what was going on,” says Bob, casually. “But the horse was a bit frisky. He wouldn’t go on.” He gestures at the BBC Comedy offices opposite. “You’d think there’d be someone out there who deals with horses.” “We’ll say, ‘what shall we write a song about? Blackberries? Chinese parrots?’ Then Jim says ‘trousers’ and we both laugh our heads off” It is 30 years – or thereabouts – since Vic Reeves (real name Jim Moir) and Bob Mortimer teamed up, so when the BBC asked them for a one-off special, they decided to..

Murphy: Meat and Masculinity

Just about the hottest topic in the news right now is the seemingly unending string of allegations of sexual misconduct among prominent men in the media, in politics, and in entertainment. Not a day goes by that somebody we once admired gets accused of conduct toward women that ranges from unacceptable to downright criminal. Thus, it’s no surprise that a feminist professor is getting a lot of attention for her theory that the way to overturn patriarchy, the (alleged) source of all this bad behavior by men, is to go vegetarian. You read that right. According to Anne DeLessio-Parson, a Penn State University sociology professor, eating meat is a form of what she called “hegemonic masculinity.” Her article, titled “Doing vegetarianism to destabilize the meat-masculinity nexus,” was published in Gender, Place, and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography. DeLessio-Parson’s thesis is that a meat-heavy food culture contributes to the problem of sexual harassment, and thus vegetarianism can be..

Inside Rick Owens' Retrospective Exhibition “Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman” in Milan

11:07 AM PST 12/14/2017 by Laura Todd The most touching aspect of the exhibition is the personal ephemera from the designer’s life, much of it deeply intertwined with his wife and creative muse, Michele Lamy, who met Owens in the '90s when she was the owner of Hollywood hangout Les Deux. Set in a curving gallery that skirts the edge of Milan's Triennale Design Museum, Rick Owens has opened a sprawling retrospective, charting the last twenty years of the California-born designer's genre-smashing clothing and furniture design. Described as a personal narrative, Owens has curated a selection of garments, accessories, furniture, graphics and publications that chart the ebbs and flows — both intimate and professional — of his prolific career. "I wanted to take what a dismissive world might mock," Owens describes of his desire to mount this show, "and create something fine, empathetic, kind and inclusive." Owens, who was born in Portersville, Calif. and now lives in Paris, l..

When fashion meets art

As you drive down the busy Peddar Road in Mumbai, the sight of a thousand embroidered hoops immediately overwhelms you, wafting through the mild winter breeze. The white walls of Jindal House make for a lovely canvas, playing hide-and-seek with these technicolor strings. Made with different fabrics from all over India, the hoops are strung together to form a simple message of love by designer Manish Arora. Inspired by his personal life philosophy, ‘All We Need is Love’, the designs interpret the emotion in different forms. Created with yards of cloth, either hand embroidered or printed, close to 2,400 pieces were pieced together to create the finished look. The installation was the result of six months of ideating, 35 artisans and three months of execution. “The inclusive fabric installation aims to evoke emotions of love, harmony and peace, and encourages passers-by to stop and think of all the natural and real beauty in the world,” says Manish, who has always thought of himself as a..

Alexandra Bircken at BQ

Artist: Alexandra Bircken Venue: BQ, Berlin Exhibition Title: Ping Date: November 21, 2017 – January 12, 2018 Click here to view slideshow Full gallery of images, press release and link available after the jump. Images: Images courtesy of BQ, Berlin. Photos by Roman März. Press Release: An important characteristic that marks Alexandra Bircken’s art is the entanglement of different, often divergent, mutually exclusive moments through the demonstration of their virtual simultaneousness. The sculptures instinctively deny generalizing categorizations of any kind. Material, space, form, body and biography form an organic unity of complex relations. As a consequence, one will search in vain for any conceptualising addition of distinct topics in Bircken’s presentations which take the scale of installations. Rather, they mark an existential encounter between, on the one hand, subtle subject matters, compressed into abstraction and, parallel on the other side, processes of a personal, associat..

Katie Holmes Did Party with Jamie Foxx at His 50th Birthday Bash

Katie HolmesNo Way I'm Missing My Man's 50th!!!Rare Public Outing with Jamie Foxx 12/14/2017 10:45 AM PST EXCLUSIVE Jamie Foxx was NOT flying solo at his huge 50th birthday event -- Katie Holmes was by his side and we've got the video of them flirting like a couple of teenagers. Katie got onstage with her man Wednesday night at Paramount Studios -- and at least for these few moments ... couldn't keep their hands off each other. The couple's been together for 4 years, but we've only seen PDA shots once before. Normally, they avoid all public photos or video. As we reported ... Jamie went old-school with the playlist ... with Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris and Too Short. Pretty fitting Jamie was whispering sweet nothings to Katie while Jay-Z's "Excuse Me Miss" was blaring. Nicely done, Jamie. Let's block ads! (Why?)
