Learning to Embrace Sexuality's Gray Areas
Then he rolled on top of me, pinning one of my arms against the cold wall and the other beneath his goose-bumped forearm. He had the same name as me, and suddenly Adam's lips If I could reverse the course of our love's demise, I could turn back the ...

Time. Tech's Greatest Win Turns Twenty
I just put up a new clock downstairs in the Man Cave. It's a big analog (hands and numbers on a dial to those of you digital kids out there…) clock with a fake pendulum in a little window right at the 6 o'clock position. My son laughed, "you and your ...

How film restorers brought The Apu Trilogy back to life
We don't have to watch a clock or have a lab say that we've used up the 36 hours that we've paid for, meaning pay more or quit. We're doing The French Lieutenant's Woman right now, and since that's a fairly contemporary film, it hasn't had the time ...

The landscape resembles "Manhattan loft meets Berkshires oasis" but the beauty of MASS MoCA extends beyond the physical. "It's this ethos of thinking on an unprecedented scale and enabling artists to work on projects that they couldn't normally make in their own facilities, or even show at most galleries," explains Michael Oatman, creator of the first large-scale... "Every mirror represents the space between words, every panel represents a letter and every group of panels represents a word. A fitting welcome to the art emporium, where stairwells become pop-up galleries for a video-art installation honoring the extinct passenger pigeon, and an exhibit called Bibliothecaphilia examines the erotic pleasures of reading. Here, at the museum topped with a clock tower against a mountainous tableau, the past meets the present in a way that is always exciting. We make art here now," says Jodi Joseph, MASS MoCA's director of communications. Most of the 27 buildings were constructed in the late 1800s for Arnold Printworks, dyers of imported fabric, such as the cloth used to make the Union Army uniforms. "Most famously and most recently, Sprague Electric was here," Joseph explains.
I just put up a new clock downstairs in the Man Cave. It’s a big analog (hands and numbers on a dial to those of you digital kids out there…) clock with a fake pendulum in a little window right at the 6 o’clock position. My son laughed, "you and your clocks. A plastic case for the S4 doesn’t have the same class appeal for an old timer like me. Well I guess as you get older you get a bit obsessed with time, and clocks are such elegant pieces of machinery that no matter how modern still reach into the... Most folks don’t realize that time on a clock has a shape. It’s a mirror one way, along the vertical axis but not along the horizontal axis. But that’s just old men looking at clocks on the wall, contemplating the advance of time. the changes that have occurred over time, and the reality that changes will occur in the future. I was responding to Dave’s article regarding VT Facilities, and was suddenly struck with the realization that there are natural changes that are occurring, but we as Hokies and even sports fans in general, are stuck in some sort of frozen time warp. It was call out time, and did you hear the waft of "Enter Sandman" after the call out "Let’s Go Hokies.
‘God help them. ‘There is capacity for all the family,’ Mr Maddox said. ‘The need arising, which God forbid. ‘Which God forbid,’ she repeated. Is it parents to children, children to parents. Mr Maddox – the butler – turned his eyes on her, and she knew she had made an error. this seemed likely. ‘So it is not,’ she said tentatively, ‘a room you go in when you are frightened. ‘It is not a mere room,’ Mr Maddox said, ‘but a facility. I am joking like a native speaker. (We are a modern, informal household, she had been told. ) ‘Miss Marcella,’ he said, ‘come with me. ’. She would never have guessed the door they passed through was a door at all. It seemed like mere wall. Once it was opened, the light came on by itself, and it showed a part of the house that was concealed except to those who were, like the butler, in the know: that was where he said he was. ‘Mr Maddox,’ she said, ‘I am to clean here. ‘Weekly,’ he said. ‘Which God forbid it should be,’ she said. She looked around her and began to understand the panic room. Mr Maddox showed her the big bottles of water and the cupboard with its supply of snack food.
