Check them out, and […]

The photo series The Sleep of the Beloved, from German photographer Paul Schneddenburger, depicts real couples sleeping together over the course of six hours. That’s “zzzz” and not “baum chicka bam bam.” Long-exposure is used to capture the couples’ movements, which, set in front of black sheets in soft candlelight, creates a very phantasmic effect. Intrigued by […]

Only a damned cretin would deny the colossal impact that the late Allen Ginsberg had on the 20th century literary world. His divinely manic, sometimes-drug-fueled rants, punctuated by themes of sexual liberation, gritty urban romanticism and countercultural activism came to define the Beat Generation. And then James Franco played him in Howl. His aptitude as a […]
