45 Everyday Phrases Coined By Shakespeare
duct tape
priscamor

Below there are 45 common expressions that were either coined by Shakespeare or popularized by him (at this vertiginous historical remove, it’s hard to be certain what was created and what was pinched from his immediate surroundings). All you have to do, if you truly love the Bard, is work just five of them into your everyday conversations throughout this live-long day (2).

That’s all, just five and then you’ll be fancy free (3). And because brevity is the soul of wit (4), we’ve stuck to the short ones.Collapse )

beatnik melancholy
duct tape
priscamor
Are the beats of this heart of a beatnik
or has the strum of modern life sickened it.
The glazed boozed infused melancholy of poetry
is missing from the breath of my words.

Are the sounds of this voice of a beatnik
or has the clanking of suburbia deafened it.
The glazed boozed infused melancholy of poetry
is missing from the strings of this guitar

Why do I long for the sadness of sorrow
or the bliss of lush filled excess?
It is not desolation, woe or creeping dejection
that this souls is seeking these days

I want the empowerment from a flowers scent
the rhythmic chaos the morning breeze brings
shivering in ecstasy as the first rain
slithers down naked flesh
that is what i miss

For over a decade, photographer Fred W. McDarrah (1926 – 2007) captured the artistic community of the East Village. When Pop Artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein arrived on the scene, they sought out McDarrah, in the hope he would photograph them and publish their picture. Over 150 of his vintage prints are currently on display in New York.

McDarrah grew up in impoverished circumstances in inter-war Brooklyn. After buying his first camera in 1939 and becoming acquainted with painter William Littlefield in 1949, he become a photographer for Greenwich Village’s alternative weekly publication The Village Voice, and a regular fixture at The Club, a society for New York’s modern artists. They hosted lectures, meetings and parties attended by the likes of Willem de Kooning, Ad Reinhardt and Jack Kerouac.

Sensing the uniqueness of the cultural moment he was privy to, McDarrah attempted to capture all he could of the artist’s world.

October 28th 1940: Greece rejects Mussolini’s ultimatium
duct tape
priscamor
On this day in 1940 during World War Two, the Greek government rejected Italian dictator Benito Mussolini’s demand that the Greeks allow the Italian army to enter and occupy the country. At 3 a.m. the Italian ambassador to Greece, Emanuele Grazzi, delivered Mussolini’s ultimatum to Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas. The Prime Minister replied with "Alors, c’est la guerre" (“Then, it is war”). The people of Greece celebrated Metaxas’s defiant “Oxi” (Greek for ‘no’) and resisted when the Italian army crossed the Greek border. The Greeks fought valiantly in the subsequent Greco-Italian War, successfully pushing the Italian army back into Albania. Greece ultimately fell to the Axis powers, with Nazi Germany assisting Italy in Greece and eventually occupying the country. It has been suggested that had Greece surrendered, the Nazis would have made greater strides across Europe and t hus Mataxas’s ‘No’ prevented the war from lasting longer. By having to detour through Greece, Hitler’s Germany lost valuable time in the spring and had to delay the invasion of Russia until the winter, a decision that proved disastrous for the Axis war effort. This day is celebrated in Greece as ‘No Day’, and is marked with military parades and displays of patriotism.
