A Week in the Life of Sandra Boynton
Then a neon clock. Then spinning stools and carefully lettered happy signs (“ALWAYS A TREAT!”). Soon a full-size, working phone booth. In time, this unreasonable collection coalesced into a functional diner, in our barn. Which isn't an agricultural ...
Favorite Streets in 12 European Cities
From the Zytglogge, a 13th-century clock tower, I rolled east past Albert Einstein's house and down toward Bear Park, where a flat path shot along the river. I missed my turn, the road cocked skyward, and I learned the Grosser Muristalden is best on foot....

The closing-night festivities of Sundance Next festival had everything you would want in an indie film fest. Neon branded red carpet. Beautifully dressed young adults clad in plaid shirts and flowery dresses drinking cocktails in the lobby. An ’80s-inspired DJ battle to conclude the evening. As a DJ-battle virgin sent to cover her first such event, I was trying to imagine what that would entail. At the very least, a verbal torrent of abuse about the respective DJs mothers’ physical appearances and lack of skill would be required. Did they call “time out” for finger cramps and let their pit crew work on them, massaging the digits back to life. Perhaps one would collapse from sheer fatigue. No, it turns out that’s not what happened. The evening began with two hideously violent movies, one short and one long. The first, called Fuckkkyouuu , was modeled after an old-fashioned monster movie. The score was by Flying Lotus, and in the film, two nude lovers turn into monsters and are slowly ripped apart either by childbirth or by stakes in the ground. The second one, called Turbo Kid , was a low-budget apocalypse movie reminiscent of Mad Max , except there were no cars, only BMX bikes.
” I’m impressed that our family holiday has made such an impression – it’s six months since we returned from two weeks on Symi, the Dodecanese island that hugs the Turkish coast. The trip is still firmly fixed in my mind, too, thanks to the extraordinarily blue seas and bright skies that the Aegean delivers in spades. One lasting memory is of my two small daughters standing arm-in-arm on the deck of an enormous ferry, hair blowing in the breeze, eyes intently scanning the horizon through the railings. Over the centuries, it has been a useful staging post for the Minoans and Mycenaeans, St Paul, the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, the Turkish and, much later, Italian armies, not to mention an army of merchants and traders. Today, it’s mainly tourists who use Rhodes as a departure point for trips up and down the popular island chain, which, helpfully, is criss-crossed by ferry routes. It has taken us 10 hours to reach Rhodes from Abu Dhabi via Athens with a merciless midnight start to catch a 2am Aegean Airlines flight. But in spite of one daughter projectile vomiting during our taxi ride to the airport, the journey fails to break our holiday spirit: it takes a manageable five hours to reach the Greek capital and the wait in transit is well-timed for breakfast,...
At one o'clock on a bright blue Saturday afternoon, the howling hasn't yet started. People make themselves quietly busy. The enclosed trailers yawn open, disgorging the machines and parts and pit crews and tool boxes that will make this thing happen. Practice gets underway at 2:30 starting with the slowest class and moving up progressively through the faster ones. A certain strain of Humboldt gear-head has been congregating at Redwood Acres since 1947. At its inception, the Acres was a true dirt track, attracting mildly modified midgets, roadsters and hard tops. In these heady days, just before a national sanctioning body was established, stock car racing was still a distinctly local affair. One could draw a line connecting a great number of tiny tracks all over the United States and follow it back to its point of origin. This type of racing traces its lineage directly to outlaw culture, to the hills and hollers of the American South. Not surprisingly, ratification of the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920, outlawing the production, transport and sale of alcoholic beverages, did nothing to curb a consummately thirsty nation's proclivities.
