David Lynch: "Mankind Was Not Made to Suffer. Bliss Is Our Nature."

Mr. Lynch, did you learn transcendental meditation because you had an anger problem? No. I noticed I did have an anger. Many people have anger and I was one of them. People direct anger at certain people they can get away with—I would take it out on my first wife. What happened was, I started meditating and two weeks later she came to me and said, "What's going on?" I said, "What do you mean?" And she said, "Where is that anger?" She didn't see it anymore. A lot of times when people start meditating they don't see the change see more

Watch: Rick Rubin's Latest Dream Team Sing Their Latest Single

After sweeping the ARIA Music Awards (Australia's Grammys) with their 2010 album Down the Way, Sydney-bred brother-and-sister act Angus and Julia Stone split up to pursue solo careers. Then came an act of divine intervention in the form of Rick Rubin, who judged their precise mix of sixties pop and seventies folk-rock "unbelievable" and began courting them. "It seems so obvious to just say yes, but it had taken us so long to decide to go our separate ways," explains Julia, 30, who's recorded with Angus, 28, since 2006. "After hanging out with Rick, we were both like, 'Alright, see more

How Long Does an Open Bottle of Cognac Last?

The quick, hyperbolic answer is: about a million times longer than an open bottle of wine. Why mention wine? Well, Cognac and wine are made from the same stuff: grapes. Quick lesson: Cognac is, in fact, a fancy name for brandy, and brandy is made by distilling wine grapes, rather than fermenting them. Brandy made in the Cognac region of France must be distilled twice in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels. It then matures in the same way as whiskies and wine when aged in barrels. So now you know. see more

The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln on Morality, Mythology, and Rick's Epic Beard

Andrew Lincoln has to be the hardest-working actor in show business. He's just wrapped his fifth consecutive season living a second life as Rick Grimes, the increasingly bedraggled antihero of AMC's brutal and bloody zombie drama The Walking Dead—a series so stratospherically popular that it's unlikely to end anytime soon. The show's blistering fifth season kicked off a little over a week ago with "No Sanctuary"—in which Rick finds himself duly bound and beaten, his throat nearly sliced—and, if the grisly final moments of this week's follow-up are any indication, there's a lot more brutality where that came from.

Hot New Homes: Southern Estates With Eight-Figure Price Tags

The difference between putting down eight figures on a pad in Manhattan and on one in Mississippi is that in the south, you'll get the square footage to match. Seersucker suit, glass of bourbon (from hand-selected barrels), and loyal hound not included. You wish you lived here. Location: Multi-home estate in Palm Beach, Florida Price: $59,000,000 Size: 12,700 square feet Key selling points: This estate may be in one of the southernmost spots in the country, but it's no textbook southern mansion—and we're into it.
