I think it is no secret that most professional musicians do not enjoy the benefit of employer-provided health insurance, and that is just a shame, because it’s something everyone needs. Sadly, earlier this year, Roger Miret, vocalist for the legendary New York-based hardcore punk band Agnostic Front was diagnosed with cancer, and long road of tests and diagnoses lead to a complex surgery and lengthy hospital stay.
Mushrooms, oysters, Tongues, and tulips are some of the iconic shapes French designer Pierre Paulin (1927–2009) was best known for creating. Having trained under Parisian designer Marcel Gascion, Paulin was influenced by the Scandinavian aesthetic as well as American pre-fabricated designs by Charles and Ray Eames, and Florence Knoll.

How cute is this little felted Taco with a Mustache tree ornament? Answer: so darn cute. Let us make him the official Worleygig mascot of Taco Tuesday, shall we? Sure, why not. This festive little guy was spotted by me a few weeks back at NY Now summer marketplace in the booth for Ornaments 4 Orphans, a for-profit, fair trade social enterprise dedicated to providing critical support for orphans and vulnerable children in Africa. They use ethical and sustainable business practices, create jobs, fight poverty, preserve intact families, empower communities, and ultimately prevent children from becoming orphans. You can browse their huge selection of beautiful, hand-crafted ornaments, and do a bit of early holiday shopping for a good cause, at This Link!
Best known for his later work as a sculptor, William Zorach spent two years studying painting in Paris, returning to New York in 1912. He wrote that his depictions of NYC’s most famous park in Spring in Central Park (1914) were “painted at home from the imagination . . . in all wild colors, peopled with exotic nudes,“ but the bold hues in undulating outlines recall the work of the Fauves, notably Henri Matisse and Andre Derain, whose canvases he had seen in Paris. With his wife, Marguerite, an avant-garde painter herself, Zorach associated with many of America’s earliest Modernists in New York in the late 1910s, including Max Weber, Marsden Hartley, and John Maren. In 1913 both Zorachs exhibited at the prestigious international exhibition of modern art, known as the Armory Show.

Hello dear readers, and welcome to the beginning of a new week, or the end of an old week, depending on your perspective. I’m enjoying the final two days of a beautiful long weekend in the Berkshires. This is a photo of Saturday night’s sunset in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Simply breathtaking.

The Notorious RBG shuffled off this mortal coil one year ago today (September 18th, 2020), and she is sorely missed. Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a pioneer and a champion for women’s rights the likes of whom we need more of! Ruth’s legacy deserved so much more than for her to be replaced on the Supreme Court by a right wing ringer who’s never even tried a case (fuck!), but all we can do is move forward. We miss you, RBG!
