“In difficult times, fashion is always outrageous.” - Elsa Schiaparelli
Maybe it’s the Met Costume Institute’s new exhibit, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, or perhaps Italian fashion and business heavyweight, Diego Della Valle’s shocking announcement (pun intended) of a Schiaparelli revival, or even the pendulum finally swinging the other way after these past few conservative, recessionary years that’s inspired the recent spate in surrealist-inspired accessories. But whatever the reason, surrealist motifs are back for fall, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see a liberal dose of imagination informing fashion’s new year. Hello, Dali!

The Master (Dir. Paul Thomas Anderson)
Here’s our first look at P.T. Anderson’s latest The Master. It’s kind of a teaser, kind of a look at Joaquin Phoenix’s character in the film. If you’re looking for any part of the story or plot, you won’t find it here and that’s just fine.
Take this as a taste of the upcoming meal that Anderson is preparing for us and leave it at that. Unless, of course, you’d like a description of the shown footage at the Cannes Film Festival, in which case, you could always check this report out.
I want to see if her can remember.
“You can listen to silence Reuven. I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own. It talks to me sometimes. I feel myself alive in it.”

Listening to silence is a great way to think about mediation.
