LIVING WITH BEAUTIFUL THINGS

Whether  it’s Fashion to be worn, Art to be loved, Home Design to be lived with, Beauty to uplift, or Music/ Books/ Films to inspire, the experience at TENOVERSIX IS one of discovery, and fun. The focus: being obsessed with the details of good design and displaying the product as art, but with a wink, in an all white gallery-like space that is highly influenced by art, galleries and installation.

We Are Geeks – Photo of the Day

GiaOnTheMove:

In 2009, I motivated and did the publicity for a talented dance choreographer who created a a short Pas de Quatre Ballet which premiered in Los Angeles, CA. It was loosely based around what CERN was doing with the Hadron Collider interwoven with the powerful energy of four Hollywood starlets. I also got to experience an off the wall comedy called, The God Particle Complex, during the Hollywood Fringe festival this past summer which played out the “accelerated effects” of time gone awry. So what an amazing thing to see this awesome piece of machinery much more up close (courtesy of hovercraftdoggie). #WhyGeeksAreAwesome

Charles Dickens Arrives in LA on December 7th

In his lifetime, Charles Dickens was recognized not only as a great writer, but as a tremendous actor, famous for performing solo renditions of his novels. (Women were known to faint in excitement at his performances!)

One of the first pieces he presented to great acclaim wasA Christmas Carol. 

In A Christmas Carol With Charles Dickens, Independent Shakespeare Co. re-creates (with a little artistic license) the experience of a public performance given by Mr. Dickens himself. Based on the novelist’s own adaptation, it is performed by ISC co-founder David Melville as Charles Dickens, who plays nearly every character in the story, for a night of wry humor, ghosts, romance and redemption.

David says, “in most productions of A Christmas Carol,the narrative voice of Dickens is lost. He was a remarkably complex author, and was quite critical of contemporary Victorian culture. Our version retains both the dry and satirical humor as well as the remarkable humanism Dickens was able to interweave throughout the story.”
