‘I was part of the Beatles’ act’: Mike McCartney’s best photograph

‘I call our kid “Rambo Paul” in this one, because he reminds me of Stallone. I have no idea why George is pointing at his nipple’I didn’t intend to pick up a camera. I’d been practising on drums that had fallen off the back of a lorry into our house on Forthlin Road, Liverpool. But when I was 13, I broke my arm at scout camp, so Pete Best got the job in our kid’s group. That’s when I started taking photos on the family box camera. It was fortuitous, though, because if I had become the Beatles’ d...

Ich habe mir Instagrams „Bixie“-Cut schneiden lassen

Im zarten Alter von 14 Jahren beging ich die ultimative Beauty-Sünde: Entgegen des Rats der Haarstylist:innen meines Vertrauens ließ ich mir einen Pixie-Cut à la Anna in O.C., Californiaverpassen. Im Gegensatz zu anderen O.C.-Charakteren – wie die einschüchternd hübsche Summer oder die traurige, ultraschlanke Marissa – schien mir der Look der lustigen, lockeren Anna zumindest nicht unnachahmbar vor. Sie trug immer lässige Pullunder und klopfte sarkastische Sprüche, und das alles mit einem süßen,...

Stephen Sondheim, 1930–2021

He lived 91 richly productive years, attended a live theater production eleven days before he died, enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with friends the day before his death. Who can ask, as the Gershwin song goes, for anything more? But we fans are greedy: The death of the composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, on November 26, after a long life of creative brilliance, leaves us wanting still more. So here’s a little more. A partial list of Sondheim musicals in chronological order, via Teepubli...

How Drummer Moe Tucker Defined the Sound of the Velvet Underground

A high school girl from Levittown, New York, the country’s first suburb, Maureen “Moe” Tucker hardly fit the profile of a rock star in one of the most influential bands of the 1960s. Then again, neither did any of the members of the Velvet Underground. Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Tucker had barely begun before Andy Warhol introduced them to Nico and billed them as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, and it was Warhol who helped turn them into cult heroes. But Tucker made th...

What Movies Teach Us About Mozart: Exploring the Cinematic Uses of His Famous Lacrimosa

In the annals of surprisingly impressive IMDb pages, few can surpass that of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Despite having died a century before the birth of cinema, he has racked up and continues to rack up more composer credits each and every year. Many of these owe to the use of one piece, indeed one movement, in particular: the Lacrimosa from his Requiem, which contains the very last notes he ever wrote. “We should probably expect some of these uses to have a somber, funereal quality, and ...

6 mögliche Auslöser für deine Unterleibsschmerzen

Vielen von uns kommt er bekannt vor, der pochende, stechende, vielleicht dumpfe Schmerz im Unterleib zu bestimmten Zeiten im Menstruationszyklus. Oft fällt dieser Schmerz mit der Periode zusammen, und wenn wir Glück haben, lässt er sich mit einer Wärmflasche oder Schmerztablette schnell wieder besänftigen. Aber was, wenn das mal nicht funktioniert? In manchen Fällen können diese Krämpfe nämlich auf etwas anderes als PMS oder die Periode hinweisen.  Um besser zu verstehen, was uns unsere Unterle...

Bikers, rappers and rude boys: the photographer who got to the heart of subcultures

Janette Beckman has spent four decades documenting underground movements from London’s punks and the birth of hip-hop to LA gangs and illegal girls’ fight clubs. How does she win her subjects’ trust? It was the tension between Janette Beckman’s shyness and her curiosity about people that helped spark a career photographing subcultures. “I realised that having a camera gave you licence to go up to strangers and say, ‘Hi, I’d like to take a picture of you,’” she says. This epiphany jump-started a ...

Watch Paul McCartney Compose The Beatles Classic “Get Back” Out of Thin Air (1969)

In its nearly eight-hour runtime Peter Jackson’s new documentary series The Beatles: Get Back offers numerous minor revelations about the world’s favorite band. Among the filmmaker’s avowed aims was to show that, even on the verge of acrimonious dissolution, John, Paul, George, and Ringo enjoyed stretches of productiveness and conviviality. Much else comes out besides, including that the catering at Apple Corps headquarters was miserable (amounting most days to toast and digestive biscuits...

Neptuns Rückläufigkeit ist vorbei – was uns jetzt bevorsteht

Digital Illustration of Planet Neptune Ah, Neptun, Planet der Illusionen, Täuschungen und Träume. Seit fünf Monaten zieht der Planet eine rückläufige Bahn; das heißt, er scheint sich am Himmel rückwärts zu bewegen. „Rückläufigkeit“ (oder „retrograde“) klingt vielleicht erstmal einschüchternd (denk nur mal an den berühmten rückläufigen Merkur), doch wirkt sich die Rückläufigkeit des Neptun nicht so stark auf unsere Leben aus wie die anderer Planeten. Dennoch bemerken wir eine eindeutige Ve...
