The Perfect Wedding-Day Scent For Every Type Of Bride

Choosing the right perfume is one of the more intimate details of planning a wedding.

In 1880 A Symphony Pointed The Way To A Distinctly American Music. Then It Was Forgotten

“It’s amazing that this landmark symphony could have been so easily forgotten. As with the other seminal New Englanders—George Whitefield Chadwick, Horatio Parker, and Edward MacDowell, among them—modernism killed off Paine’s music. And with the ascendancy of American vernacular forms, reflected in the music of Charles Ives, Aaron Copland, and others, any music arising from the German Romantic tradition could be ridiculed and ignored.”  – The American Scholar

New Web Project Immortalizes the Overlooked Women Who Helped Create Rock and Roll in the 1950s

“For sixty years, conventional wisdom has told us that women generally did not perform rock and roll during the 1950s,” writes Leah Branstetter, Ph.D. candidate in musicology at Case Western Reserve University. Like so many cultural forms into which we are initiated, through education, personal interest, and general osmosis, this popular form of Western music—now a genre with seventy years under its belt—has functioned as an almost ideal example of the great man theory of history.

I Swapped My Nonexistent Self-Care Routine For My Maximalist Colleague's — & I'll Never Be The Same
