We found Stacy chilling by herself on a park bench and that’s when Franz moved in for the pick-up. He found out she was there because she didn’t want to be with her loser husband at his work party. After a few questions about her sex life, she agreed to come to the studio to finish the survey. At the studio, Franz found out Stacy was not being pleased sexually and just knew he would be banging her cunt.

It’s no secret that a man usually falls in love before the woman does. A man also is usually the first to say “I love you” to a woman.
Still, dating labels for relationships mean more to a woman than they do to a man. It can be awkward when the guy you’re dating goes to introduce you to friends or business associates and doesn’t know whether to call you’re his girlfriend or not. Instead he’ll call you his friend in public, or will tell his friends that he’s been hanging out with you, even when he knows and shows you that his feelings are deeper for you.
To a guy, the label of girlfriend makes him think of additional responsibilities, which may include financial, legal, or even taking the walk down the aisle, which he isn’t just ready for yet. To make matters worse, to a guy, once the label is inked, he’s thinking his options are no longer open to find someone else, or even look back to the one who got away.
So the question is, if he acts like your boyfriend, takes down his dating profile, calls you daily, texts you daily, spends almost every night with you, says you’re exclusive, and is affectionate in public, why won’t he call you his girlfriend? It’s obvious that you’re an important part of his life, or otherwise he’d be out with his drinking buddies instead of holding you in his arms every night.
Do Dating Labels Matter?
First of all, don’t get overemotional about it yet. You might wonder if you should give him the big ultimatum about your relationship status, let it slide, or have a conversation about mutual respect and expectations in a relationship. These are questions that you need to ask yourself. Before you go having the relationship talk and cause an explosion or breakup prematurely, look at these signs to determine where you fit on his relationship totem pole.
There are many reasons why he’s afraid to attach the label of girlfriend.
1. He looks at you as temporary.
2. He likes the friends-with-benefits arrangement and regular sleepovers.
3. He isn’t over his ex.
4. He thinks he’s falling in love with you, but hasn’t said, “I love you” yet.
5. He’s quite comfortable with the way things are and casual works fine for him.
6. He’s looking for other options.
7. He’s not sure if you’re the one.
8. He’s not sure about your feelings for him and doesn’t want to jump the gun.
9. He likes moving at a slower pace than you do.
10. His feelings for you are fluctuating and he might be in conflict between being in a relationship and being single guy.
11. He’s just not that into you and doesn’t see you in his future.
12. Labels just don’t matter to him.
My suggestion is, after a reasonable amount of time together, have a calm conversation with your guy. Ask him if it’s a good time to talk about something that’s on your mind. If he cares about you, he’ll know there’s something wrong and will want to fix it.
Acknowledge both your feelings about the label and his. Chances are, he won’t even realize there’s anything wrong with your relationship. He might have work pressures or other issues on his mind and be completely happy with the way your relationship is heading. Express why it’s important to you to acknowledge your status as a girlfriend in public and how you value the relationship. Take a moment and listen to what he says instead of getting overemotional and rambling on with nervousness.
Be prepared to leave the relationship if the answer isn’t what you want to hear. If he says you mean the world to him but still doesn’t assign a label to your relationship, believe him at his word. He might not be ready to change his Facebook relationship status or go ring shopping, but you might be on the track to falling in love.
Know that if a man wants you to be his girlfriend and doesn’t want anyone else dating you or sleeping with you, he’ll do whatever it takes to make sure you’re his girlfriend and will be happy and proud to let the world know. He’ll show you from his actions how important you are to him. He’ll make sure his friends and family know that you’re his girl. If he downplays the relationship as just casual and doesn’t talk about his long-term relationship goals, he just might not be the one for you. It may be time to start dating others and ditch the sleepovers to maintain your dignity.
One thing I know for sure, a man will move mountains for the woman he wants to be with and there won’t be any uncertainty about your relationship status. Remember, King Edward VIII gave up the British throne when he fell in love with Wallis Simpson.
As soon as he realizes what a prize you are, he won’t want to let you go.
Do relationship labels matter to you? Your comments are welcome.

A few weeks ago, my sister and I were in the midst of our bi-weekly run in Central Park when she turned to me and asked if I knew how to block Facebook’s access to her personal information — she’d been randomly getting prompted to befriend people whom she hardly knew and felt like her privacy was being invaded. I probed a bit deeper and found out that many of these “friend requests” were coming from men she had been on a date or two with and whose number she had stored in her phone. Without a whole ton of knowledge on the matter, I suggested that the friend requests were perhaps coming from Facebook scouring her phone records, finding these names and then sending the notification based on these little tidbits of data. How very big brother of them. I suggested changing her privacy settings to limit access to her personal data.
More and more these days, I’m hearing the same story. How do “they” know to send me pop up ads on the exact pair of $ 400 dollar shoes I desperately want, can’t afford but want to forget? Or why does Facebook automatically pull up the profile of that guy I’ve been Facebook stalking even though we’re not even friends after entering nothing but the first letter of his name? (nope, I have no personal history with this one). The amount of access we’re unknowingly granting to the seemingly innocent sites we visit on a daily basis is getting more and more invasive with no end in sight. And for those of us who may not be as savvy about protecting our information, how do we shield ourselves from this invisible line we didn’t even know existed?
The information we’re dispensing is not just relegated to that which we consciously control. A comprehensive overview of a “secret mood manipulation” Facebook study from a few years ago was recently published. In the study, they basically changed the nature of the information that appeared on around 700,000 users’ news feeds, with the intent of determining how various words would alter the moods of the reader and to prove or disprove whether “emotional contagion” is real. It was determined ethical from a regulations perspective. But is that sufficient? (If you want to geek out, here are the results of the study.)
Or what about those awesome little Buzzfeed quizzes? You know — What city should you live in? What ice cream flavor are you?Which actress would play you in the movie version of your life? Only recently did I find out that each and every time I take one of these silly little time wasters, I’m offering over personal information that is recorded in my user history. It’s bad enough when I put information in that I wouldn’t mind sharing. But what about the: What’s your sex number? Or my personal favorite, How big is your penis? These quizzes which I supposedly took in privacy, most likely contain information that I would prefer to keep to myself. But instead, it’s apparently being collected, analyzed and stored for future use. If they’re taking this much information on a site as innocuous as Buzzfeed, what are they gleaning from the rest of my search history — like the types of articles I read, websites I scour or worse, my online dating profiles?
So what, if anything, can we do about it? As we continued our run, I posed the question to my sister: Would you prefer going back to the days where phones did nothing but text and make phone calls? Where privacy wasn’t invaded each and every time you visited a website, posted on your wall or took a seemingly innocent quiz? She said yes, as a matter of fact, I would. But then I’d have too much #FOMO. Entertainment – The Huffington Post

Biblical principles seem to be all the rage today.
By which I mean people seem to be raging about them all the time.
From the Hobby Lobby case to same-sex marriage to the wave of child immigrants to the age old debate over the role of women in the church, Christians everywhere are fighting for the biblical principles they believe we should all be living our lives by.
It’s simple we say.
The Bible says it, I believe it, and that settles it we say.
Or at least something like that. The idea always being that if the Bible prohibits, prescribes, and implies something we should or shouldn’t do it.
It’s that simple.
So, in the spirit of simplicity I want to help my fellow Christians better embody their “the Bible says so” faith by calling attention to 12 Biblical principles that are too often overlooked by the faithful.
Because if the Bible says it, we believe it, and that settles it, then in order to maintain our integrity with that sort of claim, we need to be consistent in following everything the Bible says to do or not do.
Otherwise, we’re just being faithful to part of the Bible and not all of it, right?
At least, that’s what I’m told the alternative is.
So, in order to guide my brothers and sisters in their quest to be faithful to all of the Bible, I’m drawing from both the Old and the New Testaments to offer 12 biblical principles you’re probably not living by, but should be if you’re really being faithful to everything the Bible says.
2. Are you executing your children when they misbehave? There’s a lot of controversy about spanking children these days, but biblically speaking that’s not going nearly far enough. If we are going to live by biblical principles, then Exodus 21:17, Leviticus 20:9, and Deuteronomy 21:18-21 are all clear that we need to be putting our children to death when they misbehave. Sure, this one might be technically against the law. But the Supreme Court has made it clear that Christian businesses can be exempt from following laws that violate their deeply held beliefs. So, if you’ve got an unruly child of appropriate age and want to rest easy knowing you’re being faithful to scripture, simply make sure your child’s day care is following biblical principles and has a pile of stones ready out back for when the time comes.
3. Have you cut off your hands and gouged out your eyes?Chances are good that you’re a sinner. I’m also willing to go out on a limb (get it??) and guess that you’ve sinned with your eyes and/or your hands before. If that’s the case and you’re a true biblical Christian, then Matthew 5:29-30, Matthew, 18:9, Mark 9:43, and Mark 9:47 are clear about what you need to do — gouge out those eyes and chop off those hands because it’s better to live without them than to be cast into the fire. Otherwise, you’re being a hypocrite when you condemn other people for what they do or don’t do with their bodies, right?
4. Do you eat bacon? I confess. This is one of the biblical principles I struggle with most. I absolutely love bacon. But Leviticus 11:7 is clear that pork is a no-no for biblically faithful believers. So, bye-bye bacon and pulled pork and smoked ribs and is too late to change faiths??
5. Do you own any slaves? Why not? Great heroes of the faith like Abraham did. Ok, maybe owning a slave is too expensive for you. After all, you’re also trying to adhere to the biblical principle of poverty. Then are you supporting the world’s slave holders by campaigning against the abolition of slavery? If not, then you’re in pretty clear violation of Colossians 3:22, Ephesians 6:5, and 1 Peter 2:18, to say nothing about all those Old Testament laws governing the owning of slaves.
6. Do you wear clothes of mixed material? Quick, check the tag on your shirt. Does it say 100 percent cotton? Or 100 percent something else? Because if not, you’re living in sin according to Deuteronomy 22:11. So, God help you on judgment day if you think you’re getting into heaven wearing that poly-cotton blend t-shirt.
7. Have you ever prayed in public? See you at the pole? I better not. Praying at graduation? God, forgive us. And that family prayer before Sunday lunch at Cracker Barrel? It’s gotta go. Matthew 6:5 lays down the law when it comes to praying in public – it makes you a Pharisee. So don’t do it. It’s that simple.
8. Do you hate your family? With all of our ministries and programs dedicated to children, youth, and families this is an area nearly all of us in the church struggle with. You might say we focus on the family too much. But if we’re going to live by biblical principles, then Luke 14:26 is clear – we need to hate our families.
9. Have you been baptized for the dead? “But I’m not a Mormon,” you say, “Why would I do that?” Well, because the Bible says so. Paul is clear in 1 Corinthians 15:29 that early church members took turns standing in as baptismal candidates for people who couldn’t be there because, you know, they were dead and what not. So, the next time your church has a baptismal service, make sure you’re first in line to volunteer to be baptized for folks in the cemetery down the street. Better yet, go ahead and start collecting names from the obituary in your local paper so you’re prepared in season and out.
10. Are you drinking wine every day? Now, I know this one is probably easier to follow for some in the church than others, since some denominations already condone social drinking. But if (like me) you’re part of one of those denominations that rejects biblical values and condemns drinking, take a stand for the biblical principle found in 1 Timothy 5:23, build a wine cellar in your basement, and bottoms up for your health.
11. Do you give anything to anyone who asks? This biblical principle found in both Matthew 5:42 and Luke 6:30 is great because it’ll go a long way in helping you live out that poverty principle. It might even help a few need folks along the way. Who knows? Oh, and just think how this will help lower crime rates if we eradicate the word “no” from our vocabulary!! “Give me your wallet!” Sure. “And you’re car!” Here are the keys. “Well, while we’re at it, I want your house too!” As you wish.
12. When’s the last time you participated in ethnic cleansing? This biblical principle is getting a lot harder to follow these days, what with that Geneva Convention nonsense. But we all know that laws against genocide are really just Christian persecution in disguise. After all, why would the Bible mention ethnic cleansing so many times if we weren’t supposed to wipe out the modern day Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them, not sparing them, but putting to death men and women, children and infants (1 Samuel 15:3)?
Now, you may be thinking to yourself that a couple of these don’t sound that bad, but some of them sound really icky and more than a bit illegal.
Which is why I’m guessing you may be wondering, “Do I really have to follow all of these biblical principles?”
Well, if living by biblical principles means following all of the Bible and not just the parts you’re comfortable with, then yeah you do.
But don’t context and matter? Well, no, not if they don’t matter for keeping women silent in the church, condemning homosexuality, waging war, and keeping aliens from a foreign land out of our country.
You see, the problem is that if context and interpretation do matter when it comes to following biblical principles, then the firm foundation for our claim to follow the Bible even when it makes us uncomfortable begins to crumble.
Because if we concede the importance of context and interpretation when following biblical principles, then we’ll ultimately have to concede the unthinkable.
That it can’t be as simple as “the Bible says so and that settles it” when we’re not actually doing most of what the Bible says to do to begin with. Comedy – The Huffington Post

Although, she doesn’t like sunlight so maybe she’d rather not shine.
Anyway, 21-year-old Kovalevskaya, who hails from Odessa, Ukraine where Lukyanova also lives, told Barcroft that taking on the doll’s appearance was easy.
“I look like a doll. I like big eyes, little nose, small plump lips. I love long hair. My hair is a meter long.”
Unlike the surgically enhanced Lukyanova, new human Barbie says she’s never had plastic surgery. Kovalevskaya is mostly concerned with mimicking a doll’s facial features, rather than aiming for Barbie’s physical proportions, which are impossible to achieve.
Story continues after photos of the latest and greatest human Barbie ..

Bored and touching mildly horny one night, pretty dark teens Gen Tilly and Misty Love play a game of strip poker in their dorm room. With the door securely locked, they get down to their bras and panties as they play for keeps. Before you know it both girls are naked, and they are equally shocked at the wetness they feel between their legs as they survey each others’ curvaceous bodies! Both of these sweeties are slender and petite; they have also got ridiculously jumbo boobs that you definitely wouldn’t expect on such mini beauties. The divas tongue each others’ snatches, also flicking each others’ clits until they ejaculate.
Franz found Nautica online in a housewives chat room. After some chatting, Franz learned the horny wife actually lived in his building and could be over in about an hour! Once Nautica arrived, Franz explained the MILF deal and she was game. She hadn’t been fucked in a while and really needed meatstick. The pair then got naked and went down on each other for a bit, which or course lead to Franz pounding her playful, underused coochie. After busting a nut on her tits, Nautica got her shit together and headed back home to the rascals!
One thing I can’t stress enough about Jessica Bangkok is that there’s no substitute for experience. This red-hot, So-Cal party girl has long come to terms with her station in life and couldn’t be happier. This girl has traffic-stopping tits, curves in all the right places and not to mention a penchant for gagging any and all cream. Yessiree, we have a bonafide, ball-draining bitch here. Right. So, she’s sucking Justin Long’s tool like a horny little freak. She is loving every nanosecond of giving head, using her hands to stuff as much of that vomit penis as possible in her dripping mouth. Then the passionate monster-truck fucking begins. A must see!

When Chris met Joe, she fell for him in a big way, and before long, they were married. Five years and two children into their marriage, Chris had what she describes as an “oh, no! moment,” when she realized that as much as she cared about Joe, she was only attracted to women. She kept her secret from Joe for two years until she couldn’t hold it inside any longer. Her husband, as it turns out, was surprisingly supportive after her revelation—that’s because he had been hiding a secret of his own.

I would like to know a wonderful woman to make love in my bed and it can be pretty much excite with my kisses, I also like to make love in the sand of a beautiful beach to find a good man who makes me feel like a woman and make me love all night
Being a longtime lover of the sun, growing up on the beautiful beaches of San Diego, to jet-setting to such exotic locales as St. Tropez, Antigua and Jamaica for a modeling assignment, make for a terrific fine-tuning, for a sun worshipper. Here are some tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way, from some of the world’s best magazine editors, fellow fashion models to the chicest hair and make up artists.
Sunscreen: Is your best friend, no shocker here, but did you know you can boost your UV protection by swallowing an antioxidant vitamin, such as one called the Sun Pill? Theses capsules tremendously reduce the suns damage that promote DNA wrinkles, and those hard to get rid of brown spots. Begin taking them a week prior to your next sun filled holiday. (Sunpill.com $ 20 for 30)… Also very important, don’t forget to literally apply the sun block (at least 30SPF or higher) directly onto your lips, before applying your lipstick. I unfortunately, had to hear how pertinent it is to also apply sun block as well to your ears, (and don’t forget the neck and hands) as a young friend described to me, her scary and horrific experience, with having gone through skin cancer (where the doctors had to remove a small section of her ear), as a result of not putting sun block on her ears, over the years.
Fragrance: When it comes to summer fragrances, it’s time to convey expressions of fresh and green, to citrusy and lush… My personal favorite, is a brand new roller scent from my friend Hilary Shepard (also a breast cancer survivor), called evLOVE I kid you not, I cannot go anywhere without someone stopping me, asking me what scent I am wearing (sensual Tuberose, creamy Gardenia, light hint of orange blossom, a sparkling top note of Japanese Yuzu, and a base note of fresh musk), other amazing favorites are Chanel “Gardenia” part of the limited edition of the Chanel perfume series (so elegantly chic, and simply alluring) and Burberry “Summer” (bergamot, grapefruit, green apple, water lily and green oak moss). While this next tip, is not a body spray, it is a great trick for all your summer traveling and flying, “Colloidal Silver Spray” (found in vitamin shops) is excellent for getting rid of germs and bacteria on airplane seats. Spray 5-6 pumps of this, directly onto your airplane seat, for eradication of you obtaining the cough, sneezes and /or sore throat your last flyer may have had.
Swimsuit Shopping: Let’s face it, we’re all suffering through a nation wide heat wave — and it’s only going to be hot and sunny for another month or two. That means it’s a perfect time, to scoop up that fabulous designer swimsuit for a fraction of the price. Being the mega shopper that I am, I’ve found the best summer sales to be particularly at these stores (Nordstrom — Anniversary sale and Bloomingdale’s). For more major designer deals, don’t forget to shop online TheOutnet.com, and my resort line (adorned by celebs — Stella McCartney, Kate Hudson & Serena Williams). Be smart, and stock up on bathers now, even if you don’t use all of them this summer, you can use the suits next year, as motivation. Don’t forget, for petite frames, low rise bottoms, with a high rise leg flatter best, and for the smaller chested, choose styles with horizontal stripes or vibrant colors, to accentuate and bring the eye up to give fullness to the area. For big chests, think support, a bra like style works best (with underwire, or halter and adjustable straps). To mask stomach areas, one-pieces that are slimming and elongating, particularly with a deep v neck work best.
Lessons: Paddle boarding, sailing, cooking, wine-tasting, meditation, learning a new language, taking a self-defense workshop with your kids, etc… Nothing is more enriching and satisfying, than treating oneself to learning a new hobby or workout. The best and most notable trainers in the world always emphasize to “shock” the muscles for the best workouts. This translates to learning new forms of exercise for both the brain and body. Last year, I even had a blast learning to play guitar and with just a one hour a day practice, learned to play a Beatles song or two, it was very liberating actually connecting chords, and hearing my self make music poolside. Speaking of the great summery outdoors, I also got a rush, out of taking motorcycle lessons, and now have a motorcycle license to partake in riding, on my own motorcycle or dirt bike (just as many women do in Europe) along with friends or the hubby. So whatever you’ve been putting off now is the time to tackle that fun new summer escapade.
Reading: Who doesn’t love an amazing, page-turner at the beach or lake? Books like songs, fill your head with memories of where you were in life, when you were reading them. South of Broad written by the great American fiction writer, Pat Conroy, is an exemplification of his work at it’s most superior. I’ll never forget reading about his majestic Charleston seascapes, while I was on a tour bus, or airport fantasizing about how great the story and magnificent use of his characters and his southern tales came to life, when we finally get to a bit of nature on the southern front ourselves… I am always on the lookout for inspiring autobiographies, and my hubby’s book (which happens to also be a NY Times Bestseller) Duff McKagan: It’s So Easy and Other Lies is just that, he courageously walks you through his trials and tribulations of struggling to survive in what later becomes, one of the largest rock n’ roll bands in the world Guns N’ Roses, while becoming clean and sober, and a husband and father of two, to continuing on with his college education, and becoming a well rounded writer. And last but not least, is my current read, A Good Rain by the legendary writer Timothy Egan. It’s a paramount read on the history and beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Style – The Huffington Post

Pianist Stewart Goodyear was determined to record Tchaikovsky’s Concerto for Piano no 1 in B flat minor and Grieg’s Concerto for Piano in A minor. In late spring 2013, following a bit of research, he approached Maestro Stanislav Bogunia and the Czech National Symphony with a proposal. By mid-July, Stewart was flying into Prague.
“I’ve wanted to record these two concerti for a very long time,” said Stewart. “I created the opportunity – there was no label assigned to it. It all started with an e-mail. Everything was laid out very simply. We talked about which days we would be free as both of us had concerts. The day before I flew to Prague, I did a concert in Niagara – an all-Beethoven program. That meant a flight from Niagara to New York, then New York to Prague, and then it was time to rehearse. We had one rehearsal before the recording session. It was quite a gamble, but my gut told me that this was the perfect match. I just took the plunge and the gods were smiling. Somehow there was a connection and we just danced. It was perfect timing and the perfect place to do it. After Steinway and Sons heard the recording, they were excited to distribute it for me.”

Tchaikovsky, Grieg: Piano Concertos is the first orchestral recording in the Steinway & Sons catalog. It is a spectacular kickoff. Stewart Goodyear and the Czech National Symphony are in perfect alignment. Mr. Goodyear’s daunting technique is immediately engaging, the arc of his musical expression is spellbinding. Conductor Bogunia and the Czech National Symphony are at one with the pianist in motivation and purpose. The performances are equally resplendent – matched in luster and dynamism, theatrical élan and spiritual muscle.
“I’ve lived with both the Tchaikovsky and the Grieg piano concertos since I was three,” said Stewart. “They were the first concerti I ever heard. Like the Beethoven piano sonatas I recorded previously, those were the pieces that inspired me to become a concert pianist. My path was set as soon as I heard them. Living with them and, of course, experiencing life’s lessons and passions – my love for these pieces deepened. I just feel so strongly about them. I found that the conductor loved them equally as well. The orchestra didn’t know who I was, but there was this energy – almost like love at first sight. We came together because of our love for these two works. So, there was a real meeting of the minds.”
The compositions are seminal in the careers of Tchaikovsky and Grieg. Both concertos contain themes that are instantly recognized and which have long been exploited outside the concert hall and recording studio – particularly in films of all sorts and through adaptations into popular songs. Stewart and I found some interesting common ground in our childhood experiences of Tchaikovsky and Grieg – films and recordings that would ignite a passion for classical music and for these composers specifically. The Academy Award winning soundtrack of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty is one of them. Also, a boxed set of LPs produced by Reader’s Digest, “Treasury of Great Operettas” which included Song of Norway, a clever adaptation of Grieg’s music by the team of Robert Wright and George Forrest (Kismet, Kean, Grand Hotel). A semi-staged concert version of the Broadway musical was recently presented at Carnegie Hall featuring soprano Alexandra Silber. The show concludes with themes from Grieg’s Concerto for Piano in A minor. This nine-record set of eighteen operettas was in the collection of Stewart’s grandparents.
“They loved musicals,” said Stewart. “Song of Norway caught my attention. The last track had an abridged version of the Grieg piano concerto. It was the first time I’d heard it. Then I had to listen to the entire work. I loved its lyricism, I loved the abandon and the improvisatory feeling in the piano part. The Percy Grainger recording with Stokowski was a great inspiration. He just threw caution to the wind. It was as though he was living and breathing that piece. Everything was raw. I hear a very rustic quality in the Grieg concerto. It is filled with pride, a true celebration of where the composer came from. I hear the festivals, I hear the Halling and the Springar dances in the third movement. Both are very athletic and it’s the men who get to improvise their moves. So, with those runs on the piano, I’m seeing the dance and the athleticism.”

We continued to explore the question of early influences and family support. A piano came into Stewart’s life when he was five, lessons began at age seven. Growing up in Canada, he participated in various national competitions and worked with several orchestras. Eventually, he was accepted into the Curtis Institute of Music.
“When I hear music, I hear images. I hear memories from my childhood and from the recent past. It’s something that never lets go of me. Learning a new piece of music is a very personal experience. Going to Curtis and being surrounded by wonderful musicians and sharing similar passions and finding out how they came to music was fascinating. I love performing. When I’m on stage, there is something that an audience does to me that brings my performance to life. When there were no opportunities, I made my own. I started creating projects that meant a lot to me.”
Stewart’s new recording is a monumental dream come true, perhaps something of a miracle. It appears that a lifetime of discipline, exploration and endless practice paid off during the finalization of every track. There were not many takes, some sections had only one. Realizing the limited time he and the orchestra would have, I asked Stewart about his private practicing. How do you prepare a concerto without the orchestra?
“Because I’m a composer myself, I love orchestration. While I know the piano part, it’s my duty to know all of the orchestra parts. We are all collaborators. My knowledge of the orchestra enhances my understanding of the piano part, they are not separate at all. While I’m practicing, sometimes I’m singing along. I’m singing the orchestra parts while I am playing the piano. Singing is always a part of my practicing. I come from a family that loves to sing. I grew up with opera. My grandparents were verismo fans – they loved Puccini and listened to Jussi Björling and Renata Scotto. I heard the way singers bring a character to life – using different qualities of their voice to represent rage, courtship, love, and vulnerability. It made such a deep impression on me growing up. It compelled me with this recording. Caution went out the window. By the end – I was sweating, I was panting. I was just going for the jugular. It was a very powerful session.”
Stewart’s first listening experience of Tchaikovsky’s B flat minor concerto was a rare 1926 recording by Vassily Sapellnikoff (1867-1941). The pianist had not only toured with Tchaikovsky, but had played the concerto under his baton. He knew what the Maestro wanted. Sapellnikoff’s recording, made thirty-three years after the composer’s death, is the only one that carries such a weighty provenance.

“What I would say – because I was not emulating either Vassily’s performance of the Tchaikovsky or Percy Grainger’s performance of the Grieg – is that what they did teach me were lessons that were quite profound. With Vassily there was a simplicity that I absolutely loved and a sense of structure – of which Tchaikovsky is such a master. A master of melody, a master of order, and a master at moving the public. That’s what I found with Vassily. It was not about the speed of the octaves or of the runs. The speed of the runs and however fast the octaves were played depended entirely on the structure of the concerto. That is what governed the virtuosity. Vassily Sapellnikoff inspired me to really look very, very deep in my mind about what Tchaikovsky represented in me. His was the recording I heard. I’m not going to say that it is a guide to playing the concerto. But it was definitely the seed that inspired my interpretation of Tchaikovsky.”
I asked Stewart if – as he boarded the plane to come home, with the master recording safely in hand – his first stop would be at Steinway & Sons.
“A wonderful publicist helped me to spread the word around about this recording. I wanted to approach a label that very much believed in it. That was my criteria. For me, Steinway was the perfect label. It was just a great relationship from the beginning. I have a Steinway piano at home. Steinway has been a part of my life from the very beginning. It’s a great honor that I am their first orchestral recording.” Entertainment – The Huffington Post

Agnes, the English bulldog puppy, has found nirvana.
As you can see in the video above, a utility scrub brush brings Agnes boundless joy. She loves playing with it, getting her back scratched by it and is especially fond of the belly rubs she gets from it. This goofy puppy loves it so much, she even tries to run off with it around the 0:22 mark.
Why does a simple cleaning tool bring her so much happiness? We’re not sure, but we’re a little jealous.
I discovered my hair stylist 16 years ago. She was everything one could want in a stylist. She owned her own shop. She was a perfectionist in her work. She wasn’t cheap but she also wasn’t absurdly priced. She asked questions and seemed genuinely concerned with keeping my hair healthy, easy to manage and stylish. I had just moved back to New York and within six weeks had snagged a great apartment and a great hair stylist! I was a lucky girl!
Each time she changed locations, I followed her. I recommended her to friends. I wore my hair shorter, longer, with highlights and without. It was easy to manage. I got compliments. I was happy. Outside of family and a few select friends our relationship became one of the longer ones of my life. So when things started to change, breaking up was the last thing I wanted to do.
At first I thought it was me. My hair, like my body, was 16 years older than when we started. Naturally it wasn’t going to behave the same way. But I noticed each time I brought it up, she seemed disinterested. I knew she was no longer concerned in growing her business. She had married, had a child and moved to the suburbs as she simultaneously shrunk her work week to three days, to two and then down to one. But I endured the nightmare of working my hair schedule around her limited one. I was attached. I had gone through enough change in the last few years reinventing my life. I was in no mood to include a change of hair stylist in the mix. I did what people do when they know it’s time for a change and are unwilling to make it — I rationalized — convincing myself that it was easier to stay put and that the devil I knew was better than the devil I didn’t.
But it kept getting worse. She would stop in the middle of a haircut to take a call from her daughter. She would argue when I told her my bangs were uneven. The last time I was there she went so far as to suggest that perhaps my hairline was receding and that was the problem. I spent an hour that night in front of the bathroom mirror wondering if she was right. Maybe it was receding. Maybe my dissatisfaction with my hair was all age-related.
That next week I had a lot of places to be in which I wanted my hair to look good. So I made an appointment for a professional blow out at Dream Dry — one of those salons where all they do is style hair. The white noise of the high-power hair dryer was putting me into my usual trance-like zone when I was interrupted by these words.
“You know — your bangs are uneven.”
Snapped out of my reverie, I looked up.
“They are, aren’t they?”
“They are. I’ll do the best I can.”
That happened two more times, with two different stylists.
I admit I felt a bit smug and self-satisfied that I was right and my hairdresser of 16 years was wrong. But I was also nauseous at the thought of what was becoming painfully clear I was going to have to do.
I had to break up.
So I made the call.
No, not the one you are thinking. I was acting like a guy. Before I severed the ties once and for all, I made sure I had something else lined up.
I had been telling Alice for a long time that when I was ready to change hairdressers, Alice Hair was where I was going. I had friends who were her clients. I knew her. I knew her work. I knew her story. I knew she came to this country from Ireland with a couple of hundred dollars in her pocket and a dream that led her to eventually opening her own shop, one that has thrived for over 13 years despite the Second Avenue subway nightmare. I knew she was passionate about her work.
Alice, ever the professional, had never tried to hard sell me. She would simply offer her infectious smile and tell me in that endearing Irish lilt “Darlin’, just let me know. Whenever you’re ready.”
I was ready.
The first day I left Alice Hair I was angry. Not at Alice. My hair looked fantastic. The joy she gets out of styling, cutting and coloring hair is so palatable it literally fills the salon and ripples forth from all her employees. She loves what she does and takes real pleasure from helping women feel good about how they look. And she is good at it!
No — I was angry at myself.
Once again I had done what I had promised myself before I would never do again in so many areas of my life — whether it was a relationship that was no longer working or a job.
I had stayed at the party long after the fun wore out.
I had hoped it would get back to what it was — when I knew we were past that.
I had put up with not being listened to.
I had not trusted myself when I knew I was right.
I had let someone else make it about me — when it was really about them.
I had complained instead of taking action.
I had chosen fear over change.
It’s been over three months since the break-up. After being a regular, every four-week customer for all those years, it appears my former hairdresser has not even noticed I’ve gone missing. Which says a lot about my decision.
What I learned when I broke up with my hairdresser was not a new lesson. But it was one I had temporarily forgotten.
When things no longer feel good, when you are not being heard, when you’ve spoken your truth and nothing changes — be brave.
Standing still and complaining changes nothing. Making a move does. And in this case, gave me — to paraphrase Alice — “hair I love to wear.” Style – The Huffington Post

This just in: Robert Redford is playing Dan Rather in a movie.
The movie is based on “Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, and The Privilege of Power,” a memoir written by Rather’s former producer Mary Mapes. It will tell the story of Rathergate, the scandal surrounding Rather’s controversial Bush National Guard story that led to his exit from CBS News. The Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday that Redford will play opposite Cate Blanchett, who has signed on for the role of Mapes.
“But wait!” we hear you saying. “Surely Robert Redford should only be playing Bob Woodward if he’s playing any famous journalist at all!” To which we’d reply: Relax, will ya! It’s Robert Redford! He can do it! We’re just wondering what he’ll do with Rather’s rather famously Southern accent.
