The moment has arrived. Here’s how this works: Starting right now, you have 24 hours to produce and submit your work. We’ll take the next 24 to select, edit, design and lay everything out. The end result will be a beautiful glossy paper magazine. And a super sharp digital edition.
So excited for this!
A night I probably could have executed in a smarter order: Froot Loops, American Pickers, nail polish, 1.5 episodes of Doctor Who, write & submit an essay.
Catherine screams the unspoken fears of modern men: That we are being made smaller. That from birth our mothers infantilize us, our girlfriends domesticate us and our lovers humiliate us with their newly wakened libidos. That we haven’t become man-children by choice, but by circumstance.
The climb toward adulthood can feel treacherous, as if made under the surveillance of a thousand loving but judgmental eyes belonging to those women who tell us how to act — or what not to play. Reasonable or not, being a man is terrifying.
And so Catherine isn’t just a puzzle game or erotic thriller. It’s therapy.
So let’s face reality - everyone forgets to bring back Library books sometimes. And when they do, they rack up fines. Sure, the fines aren’t that steep, but over time, they can add up. Here at NYPL, if you rack up $15 or more in fines, your card gets blocked and you can’t check out books…
EW ranks what it believes are the funniest musicals of all time and their choice for number one may surprise you.
If it were up to me switch number 2 and number 1, throw in some Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson or Title of Show, and sub in The Full Monty for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
There is no way How to Succeed is funnier than Urinetown.
Urinetown is WAY underrated here. Not as funny as Kiss Me Kate? I’m sorry, no. Nonononono. And I’ve gone through obsessive listening phases with both of those cast recordings. “He may have hair upon his chest, but sister so does Lassie” versus the crying-laughing of Tell Her I Love Her - fuck that noise.
Hunter Foster is also, if not underrated, sorely underutilized by Broadway lo these last five years or so. (Ooh, he would be great in The Last Five Years.) He was fucking brilliant in Little Shop of Horrors and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Little Shop of Horrors is also funnier than Kiss Me Kate. At least the list got that right.
Spamalot was only funny if you were saying the Monty Python jokes along with them.
Will someone please revive Bat Boy and put it on Broadway so it can be like #1 on this list? Thank you.
In Dadaab, Kenya, we are currently treating 2,402 children in its ambulatory therapeutic feeding program and 130 children in its inpatient therapeutic feeding center. An additional 5,047 children with moderate acute malnutrition are enrolled in MSF’s supplementary feeding program.
There are now around 10,000 people in MSF’s feeding program in the Dadaab camp.
If people continue to arrive at the current pace, MSF estimates that the Dadaab camp’s population will total 500,000, rather than the previous estimate of 450,000, before the end of 2011. Living conditions are expected to deteriorate further.
It now takes two months, rather than one month, for new arrivals to the Dadaab camp to register. This means increased delays in receiving food rations.
MSF began working to treat malnourished children in Turkana district, Kenya, on July 18.
KW: When I got back, there were a billion emails waiting, each angrier than the last. People were fighting about whether the cost was too high or whether $40 was “not even much money,” and blah blah blah. So I sent another email, thinking, “This has just been a misunderstanding.” It read something like, “Hey guys, sorry for unsuspectingly causing a scene, I just wanted to know what the policy is. Can anyone tell me?”
SJC: But it wasn’t a misunderstanding.
KW: It was not. The two emails I remember most vividly are: 1) the girl who informed me that a Subway had just opened in Central Square, and if I didn’t have $40 maybe I should get a job; and 2) the guy who said he’d “pay me $40 to stop bitching.”
