Homogenic Turns 20

i'm in my feelings today

They used to play Björk on The Grind. In the likely event that you don't remember The Grind, it was an MTV dance show, a sort of early-'90s variant on American Bandstand or Soul Train, where attractive young people would spend a half-hour semi-listlessly bouncing around to whatever club tracks were hot at the moment.

Boy who drowned at Carson Beach was denied life jacket because staff only had pink ones for girls, family charges

by adamg
KV

DESTROY GENDER

The family of Kyzr Willis, who drowned while at a city-run summer program at Carson Beach last year, is suing Mayor Walsh, the city and individual workers at the program.

The family filed suit in Suffolk Superior Court, but the city quickly moved to have the suit heard in federal court because of the constitutional issues involved - the city is charged with violating the boy's 14th Amendment rights.

The suit also charges the city violated a state law known as Christian's Law, after a boy who drowned at a Sturbridge beach, that requires kids in waterfront programs be given wristbands if they can't swim and that all be offered life jackets.

According to the suit, Kyzr, 7, could not swim, and on July 26, 2016, asked one of the workers at the BCYF program for a life jacket.

On that day, Kyrr, who was wearing his fluorescent swim trunks ... expressed to camp counselor Jane Doe that he wanted a life jacket, but was told by Jane Doe that there were only pink ones for girls available, so he was never given a life jacket.

During that entire day, not a single lifeguard, not a single camp counselor, not a single camp supervisor or director made Kyzr wear a lifejacket as he played close to and in the ocean.

The family is asking for unspecified damages for the suffering Kyzr experienced during his death and for the suffering the family continues to suffer as a result of it.

Earlier this year, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office ruled that there was no foul play involved in his death.

Jim Carrey gives supremely AWKWARD interview at New York Fashion Week bash

KV

Acid trip?




Jim Carrey gave E! News one of the most awkward interviews ever on Friday night at Harper's Bazaar's NYFW party

"There’s no meaning to any of this," he told the reporter. "So I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join and here I am."

The reporter points out that he was wearing a rather snazzy tuxedo jacket.

"I didn't get dressed up," he said. "There is no me. There's just things happening."

Cleveland Circle could get high-end sushi and hibachi place

by adamg
KV

oooh!

The owners of four suburban sushi and Japanese-grill restaurants in the suburbs have proposed turning the vacant old Citibank branch at 1924 Beacon St. into their latest restaurant.

At a meeting last night, members of the Brighton-Allston Improvement Association gave thumbs up to the proposed Feng Shui Hibachi Sushi Lounge - but only on the proviso it seek a license to serve beer and wine and not a license to serve harder drinks.

Some members raised the specter of drunken young patrons careening through the neighborhood, leaving trash everywhere, breaking windows and using residents' yards as toilets. One resident said Brighton has tons of successful ethnic restaurants that don't serve alcohol.

Feng Shui attorney Brian Burke tried to assure residents that his clients, who have been in the restaurant business for 25 years, have never had any problems with patrons at their Chelmsford, Waltham, Cohasset and Tyngsboro locations. Look them up on those communities' police Web sites, he suggested. "You can rest assured this won't be a Mary Ann's," he said. "They have not had one incident in all the years they've had a restaurant."

Unfortunately for Burke, those were the same basic arguments made by the owners of Agoros on Chestnut Hill Avenue before it opened a year ago - it has since racked up nearly two weeks' worth of license suspensions for serving underage BC students in a series of incidents.

Still, after Burke and his clients left, the association voted to back their request for a food-serving license - as long as they limit themselves to a beer and wine license, rather than a full-alcohol license.

Stream Susanne Sundfør Music For People In Trouble

by Stereogum
KV

Ten Love Songs is a masterpiece so if you're new to Susanne you should go listen to that first, but this record is extremely good as well.

With 2015's Ten Love Songs, Norwegian musician Susanne Sundfør went for broke and constructed ten intimate but huge-sounding synth-pop songs. For its follow-up, Music For People In Trouble, she's pared things back significantly, returning to her roots as a folk singer-songwriter. It's a painfully pretty album, somewhere on the spectrum between Joanna Newsom and Regina … More »

The 11-room spread’s original owners are selling the house.

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the creation of the House of Dior.

“Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve” (“Christian Dior, Dream Couturier”) runs from July 5th, 2017 through January 7th, 2018, at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France.

Boston’s 25 most expensive homes for sale, mapped

by Tom Acitelli
KV

guess whose boss has a home on this list unamused

Two neighborhoods dominate

Listings in Back Bay and Beacon Hill dominate our updated map of the 25 most expensive homes for sale in Boston.

Twenty-two of the listings are in those two enclaves. The remaining three—in the Ritz-Carlton, Millennium Tower, and 10 Farnsworth—are in downtown, Downtown Crossing, and Fort Point, respectively.

Also, the 25 are overwhelmingly condos, though some are duplicates—that is, combined units are listed together and in separate parts or iterations (the same is true of a couple of townhouse listings).

One final note: These 25 represent active listings, and therefore do not include ones with pending deals or contracts.

Now, from priciest to cheapest, the 25 most expensive homes for sale in Boston.

Photographer says Marshalls sold his work on a shirt without his permission, sues

by adamg
KV

i'm sorry, the irony of this guy suing marshall's for using his photo of a white model in a headdress...

From the complaint: One of the shirts in question. See the original photo.

A Texas photographer is seeking up to $125,000 for each shirt that Marshalls sold bearing what he says is an unauthorized reprint of part of one of his photos.

In his copyright suit, filed this week in US District Court in Boston, Jamie Ibarra of Austin says Marshalls' owner, TJX of Framingham, slapped part of his photo of a naked woman in a native-American headdress on clothing with no regard to his copyright on the work.

In addition to the $125,000 for each shirt, Ibarra is seeking any profits Marshalls made on the shirts, plus penalties and legal fees.

amazing!

“I’m wearing a Mannisto jacket, an Acne denim shirt, Fendi glasses, and Isabella Marant silk pants. Different cultural elements from Africa, South America, Middle East and Asia inspire my style. I love cultural mixtures, for example this Mannisto jacket has ancient Inka cat prints printed on denim. After my son Pepe was born a year ago I started to wear much more colors, prints and happier clothes. My current favorites are Mannisto, Rolf Ekroth, Juslin Maunula and ONAR.”

Boston’s Liberty Hotel: Take a video tour

by Tom Acitelli
KV

Cool!

The 19th-century building was born as a jail

The bones of Boston’s 300-room Liberty Hotel date from 1851, when it was born as a distinctly different property: The Charles Street Jail.

Boston architect Gridley James Fox designed the 220-cell jail in the form of a cross, its four wings shooting off from a central, octagonal rotunda with a 90-foot atrium. That way, inmates could be divided by gender and category of offense.

The jail’s 30 arched windows were meant to provide plenty of ventilation and natural light to those inmates.

Though both the cross design and the windows were supposed to render the facility more humane than your average 19th-century jail, it became notorious for overcrowding. Still, it would be nearly a century and a half before federal authorities forced its closure.

Between its opening and that closure over Memorial Day Weekend in 1990, the Charles Street Jail held such notables as civil rights activist Malcolm X, disgraced Boston Mayor (and Massachusetts Governor and Congressman) James Michael Curley, and Italian anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti.

As for the Liberty Hotel there now, its design from Cambridge Seven Associates and Ann Beha Architects retains the soaring rotunda and other original details—including some cell bars.
