Making Haste Slowly: Jayme Odgers' Samurai Self-Portraits at Offramp Gallery, Pasadena

James Scarborough | November 25, 2015 | Arts
This come see me trope gets short shrift in an era of disposal, ephemeral selfies on ubiquitous digital platforms. What might be considered a more measured, more artistic variation of the theme becomes exponentially more monumental the moment you appreciate their old school function as a visual diary.

The Unique Way I Chose to Honor My Breasts Before My Double Mastectomy

Leslie Natasha Jackson | November 24, 2015 | Women
I never felt my breasts defined me or who I was as a woman. Rather, my breasts were a part of me. Losing my breasts has been a brutal process, but having the opportunity to honor that part of me in advance has helped me to move forward.

If #AllLivesMatter, Maybe It's Time to Stop Laughing at North Korea

Bonny Brooks | November 24, 2015 | World
Hands up -- who changed a Facebook pic to show solidarity with Paris? Raged about the barbarity of the gunmen? Or even, for those "tragedy hipsters" among us, bemoaned the relative indifference of Westerners to other brutal attacks in Lebanon, Kenya and now Nigeria? What about the World Food Programme's confirmation -- for the umpteenth time -- that 1 in 3 North Korean children is stunted due to malnutrition? Anyone?

My experience with Spotify inspired me to re-examine my CDs with a view to a major clean up. So I looked at the impressive wall of more than 2,000 recordings and for some reason my gaze fell upon one, a box-set of an opera by Handel called Alcina.

Avicii Talks About His Favorite Philosopher

Quora | November 24, 2015 | Arts
A couple of years ago I wouldn't have had any problems answering this question but I'm astounded at how confused I feel about this question right now. My first instinctual answer when I saw this was Hermann Hesse - but my confusion set in when I started thinking about what constitutes being a philosopher.

7 Music Festival Must Haves

David Duran | November 24, 2015 | Arts
I've been to a few outdoor music festivals recently and each time, I always found myself being envious of someone who thought of the perfect thing to bring with them. There's always that one item that you wish you would have thought to bring, and once you are there, it's too little, too late.

Black Characters Matter

Devin E. Haqq | November 24, 2015 | Black Voices
If a young person of color is fed a steady diet of movies, television shows, and plays in which characters that look like her exist only on the margins, how can we expect her to dream of taking center stage in school or work?
