Parisian photographer Janol Apin Creates Visual Puns of Paris Metro Stations in a Project Called “Métropolisson”
"Fairbanks had a frightening energy. It was a constant hassle around him from morning to night. All of his acrobatics were genuine. The entire studio was rigged up like a gymnasium. There were trampolines, swings, horizontal bars, ropes, hand rings, punching bags, even a dirt track for sprints out at the back. It was like a present-day Army obstacle course. He’d come racing out of his administration building office and never stop running and jumping until he hit the dirt track clear out in back a half mile away. He’d swing on to a gate, vault over it, leap from there to a portico, bounding like a kangaroo. And he loved to entice others to join him. He always had a swarm of fighters, wrestlers, knife throwers and stunt men around him. There was never anyone like Fairbanks. He was the indispensable man."
David Sharpe, 1952

The very first onscreen appearance of the original cast from Saturday Night Live. The NOT ready for primetime players. October 11th 1975
Sometimes in late summer I won’t touch anything, not
the flower, not the blackberries
brimming in the thickets; I won’t drink
from the pond; I won’t name the birds or the trees;
I won’t whisper my own name.
the fox came down the hill, glittering and confident,
and didn’t see me— and I thought:
so this is the world
I’m not in it.
It is beautiful.
—Mary Oliver, excerpt from her poem “October” in New and Collected Poems, (Beacon Press, 1992).
More magazine is the mother of all reinvention magazines. Every month, it seems, there’s another story about a woman who quit her high-paying job as a corporate attorney/brain surgeon/college professor to follow her passion and make dreamcatchers/bake gluten-free cupcakes/start a philanthropic foundation. With shiny, happy faces, these women tell us that YES! we can do it too. We can reinvent ourselves and have a whole new life… if we just try.
