FEELS LIKE...

Ladies and gentlemen, FEELS II is in the books. Much love and many thanks to all the folks involved in bringing our first art and music festival to reality. Bringing together a host of musical artists, from Kool A.D., Teebs and Kreayshawn, to visual artists like Ryan Rocha, Bud Snow and more, FEELS II was one to remember.

The world is changing fast. I wonder if Zuckerberg even could have fathomed a world where social networking factored into the overthrow of an authoritarian dictatorship that had ruled with iron fist for almost a quarter century. If you’ve been keeping an eye on the news lately, you’ll notice that the tides are turning in […]

Every so often an email arrives in my inbox that is so heartfelt it’s impossible to ignore. They’re special moments, because it all happens so smoothly. Almost like it was meant to be. With the goal to celebrate the role of creative black men in society, Jaimie Milner’s portraits celebrate men young and old who […]

To call this a romantic getaway might be a gross understatement. Although I’m a little conflicted when it comes to luxury resorts in impoverished countries, I can’t deny how dope it’d be to go here.

About a year and a half ago, my good friend and talented writer Will embarked on a journey that was both peculiar and extraordinary. From its beginnings in Ecuador, to riverboats down the Amazon, to its epic conclusion on the glacial shores of Southern Chile, to say his trip was life-changing or eye-opening would probably […]

KISS MORE…

I think we need to kiss more. In essence show more love. I really don’t see too much harm in a kiss. They do it everywhere else, why can’t we do it here? In fact, I’d argue that in some instances a kiss is more appreciated than a hug. But then society gets in the […]

Sometimes art gets commodified even when we don’t mean it to. Despite the fact that Japanese artist Kazumasa Nagai refused to create pieces specifically for commercial purposes, his design work still managed to become the basis of numerous ad campaigns, and the vehicle for selling products, raising awareness and educating in various capacities. Perhaps most […]

For those of you in attendance, Tuesday night was The Renaissance. That feeling in the air. That was it. That energy. That comfort. Could you feel it? That was it. That was The Renaissance. It was that warm feeling around 11:35pm when you can’t help but smile because you can’t believe so many superstars could […]

By Marcelo Gleiser Take a look at your hands. In them, you find atoms that once belonged to stars dead more than 5 billion years ago. Those stars, bigger than our sun, forged much of the chemistry of life during their last moments, before exploding into giant supernovae. They forged chemical elements spread through the […]

NO, THANK YOU…

“I’ve been checking W&B for quite a long time. I’ve read every single post. There were times when I didn’t feel like going to the site, and afterwards I could always define that time period as uncreative, unoriginal and… uninspired.
