All things so ever do go on... the spark that defines the edge of Past and Now, the great current that provides an opening for voices and stories that go beyond our own small, private existence..... It is Nosauvelta's role to look beyond oneself, beyond the obvious, like, there is a feeling of the world going on beyond the music, the image, the story, through culture and history --- the inner life, the universe beyond the shifting desert and craggy coastline. My perspective begins poetically with me alone. It extends out to the mood of my music, blogs, then to my albums, the paintings, visual arts and ultimately to the living spaces of nature. I am utterly and unashamedly ecumenical in my fascination with classical music, tango, the Rhythm of dances and with the human form and the imaginative capacity for loving its creators, its timeless artists…

The Well-Tempered Clavier is one of the world's great musical treasures. Each of its two volumes contains a prelude and fugue in every major and minor key of the chromatic scale. The present study focuses on the first book, completed in 1722, and history's first cycle of compositions in every key. In sum, the first book has 48 compositions. Of these, 24 are preludes, and 24 are fugues—a prelude and a fugue in each of the twelve major and twelve minor keys. “The 48”, as they are fondly called by keyboardists around the world, can be heard here on the piano, organ, and harpsichord, all members of the “clavier” family of instruments.
 
While the Well-Tempered Clavier would delight anybody, it continues to engage keyboardists, music theorists, and composers in particular. What piano student has not played the C Major prelude of Book I, later to tangle fingers with the C minor fugue of Book II? For music theorists and composers, it is a feast of tools and techniques, a paradise of inversion, augmentation, and every other contrapuntal device. It represents the summa of Baroque technique, not heard with such clarity or consistency before, and seldom since.

"According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, testosterone is declining in American men to the alarming rate of one percent per year. But why? That’s what Oscar Boyson Casey Neistat and tried to find truth in his film An emasculating Truth.

Ultimately, the film goes beyond this issue to promote ongoing dialogue on the current definition of masculinity in the light of changes in gender roles. Boyson, film producer and emcee of the camera, came to some very personal conclusions about what it means to be a man today, turning the camera on himself and asks the question “what does being a man ? “

This small and powerful exhibition from the US Holocaust Museum tells how Lola Rein escaped the Nazis by hiding for seven months, spending the days in a 4x6-foot hole dug below a barn, with three other Jews. Rein was eight years old when she went into hiding on a summer day, wearing a dress embroidered by her mother, a talented seamstress. In 2002, Rein donated the dress to the Holocaust Museum, and told her story to curators. The Web exhibition's use of Flash animation and video allows visitors to see the dress close up, watch Rein talk about her time in hiding, and experience human memory embodied in an object.
