The 10 Worst Halloween Costumes of 2014

You know how it is—every Halloween when you show up to a party and it seems like a dozen people are all wearing the same very topical Halloween costume. One year it's Borat the next it's Sarah Palin, or the rednecks from Honey Boo Boo. Don't be that guy (or girl). You're better than that. Halloween is a time to have fun, experiment, and do something creative. Don't half-ass it by going for the easy idea, buying a costume in a bag, or leaving it to the last minute so you have to get inventive with what is in your see more

Thurston Moore Talks About His New Album, Sonic Youth, and Sound Experimentation

The past years have hardly been smooth for Thurston Moore: from the indefinite hiatus of Sonic Youth to his well-publicized split with his ex-wife and bandmate Kim Gordon to a subsequent relocation to London in what on the surface seemed like something resembling a escape move. Still, through it all, the guitarist has largely kept his head above water. So much so, he'll tell you, that he's now feeling a certain contentment he's never previously known. "A lot of the joy of the record has to do with a certain inherent happiness that was happening in my world, " he see more

How a Camera Malfunction Became Fractured, a New Photo Book

Photographer Jeremy Kost has become known for his moody, sexually-charged photos that document chiseled models and habitués of the downtown New York club scene, images which were compiled into the books We Were All Innocent Once and It's Always Darkest Before Dawn. His latest outing, Fractured, builds upon a career that has focused on the male form, but, thanks to a happy accident, suffuses it with a meditative, dreamlike energy. see more

A Brief History of the World's Most Controversial Opera

Since its premiere in 1991, The Death of Klinghoffer has been decried as anti-Semitic and as Zionist propaganda. That makes sense—the opera, created by composer John Adams and librettist Alice Goodman, is based on the 1985 hijacking of a cruise ship by the Palestinian Liberation Front and subsequent murder of 69-year-old wheelchair-bound American Jew Leon Klinghoffer. Tonight, New York City's Metropolitan Opera will mount a production that's already mired in controversy. "The really ironic and sad fact," Adams has said, "is that the content of this opera is more relevant in 2014 than it was even in 1991." • • see more

A New Breed of Sleek, Modern Recliners to Consider

More than 100 million LA-Z-Boys have been sold since 1928, most of them to football fans who, come Sunday, park themselves in the living room, beer in hand, screaming at the TV. But the enduring staple is getting an image rehab now that designers are turning out slimmer, sleeker models that don't rely on boxy rec-room aesthetics to be comfortable. "The best aspect of today's recliner is that it doesn't look like a recliner," says Michael Manes, president of the New York City–based European furniture importer M2L. "It's evolved into a modern piece of furniture with a lighter form and see more
