ROYGBIV: An Existential Eclipse

The solar eclipse gave us an existential crisis on Friday morning. We are mere ants on this planet. The crowds climbing Arthur’s Seat as Edinburgh was plunged into dark(/dim)ness reminded us of our insignificance. So, true to Culture form, we’ve...

ROYGBIV: Colliding Culture

If high fashion is art then a discussion of it belongs here in the Culture section. This at least is the official excuse for mentioning Zoolander’s return to the catwalks of Paris in this week’s column. As enjoyable as it must have been to watch...
