Guardians

In the art museums of Russia, women sit in the galleries and guard the collections. When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself. I found the guards as intriguing to observe as the pieces they watch over. In conversation they told me how much they like being among Russia’s great art. A woman in Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery Museum said she often returns there on her day off to sit in front of a painting that reminds her of her childhood home. Another guard travels three hours each day to work, since at home she would just sit on her porch and complain about her illnesses, “as old women do.” She would rather be at the museum enjoying the people watching, surrounded by the history of her country.

…the explosion of hack culture seems to inherently disrespect the paramount value of the journey — the true value in any experience — by supplanting it with an expedited rush to access to a result. And result is empty without grappling with the resistance that inevitably defines the battle.

Who Pays Interns?: Condé Nast (Vogue, New Yorker, GQ) - Not Anymore

whopaysinterns:

It seems Condé Nast no longer pays its interns.

A few months ago, we reported that Condé Nast paid its interns a $550 stipend.

But a former intern tells us that’s no longer the case. She asked for the stipend she was owed after working there this Spring, only to be informed that the company…

Well this is a pile of crap.

THE BREAKFAST CLUB TRIVIA: (Deleted Scene) John and Claire’s kissing scene in the closet was cut because Hughes felt that “screen kissing wears thin very quickly.” Molly Ringwald described it as a “great kiss”

I’ve been thinking about this.

A guy at the Garbage show I attended brought an iPad. And held it up, practically non-stop. Please, NO ONE DO THIS EVER.
And: I put my phone away at live shows. Otherwise I can’t concentrate.
nprmusic:

Is it time to ban cellphones at concerts? Does it seem old-fashioned NOT to Tweet or Instagram during a show? Do you just wish twitpickers would just get out of the way?
Take our survey.
