Gender at the Oscars

Checkout my latest essay on the Academy Awards and gender, which considers whether actors will be able to win best actor(ess) in the future based on the gender performed rather than the actor’s actual gender.

Beyond Contemporary Art

I’m so excited to have published my first book, Beyond Contemporary Art, which is an image-driven contemporary art book and spans disciplines ranging from science, design and architecture to new media, film-making and performance art.

Deepak Chopra interview

I recently had a great interview with Deepak Chopra after reading his book, Super Brain:

Deepak emphasizes that the brain is an extraordinary part of ourselves, and that it has a profound influence on our bodies (e.g. a healthy and happy brain improves our immune system and vice versa–our health influences our emotional balance).

When I asked Deepak what was the hardest thing about being a celebrity, he explained that too many people forget that he’s a regular guy and that they project unrealistic characteristics unto him.

Deepak’s long term goals are to catalyze a critical mass of people that advocate a mind-body and spiritual connection. He’s definitely well on his way.

And there will be more content in issue 33 of the Watnkins Mind Body Spirit magazine, which can be bought at Watkins Books.

Books to read

This is my first blog post, and I’m just a few days ahead of the end of the Mayan calendar… Hopefully, the humanity shall survive, after which, I’m looking forward to hibernating in Lonodn: reading books, watching movies and just spending lots of time in bed.

Books that I plan to read this winter include: You Are Not a Gadget by Jaron Lanier, Watching the British by Kate Fox, The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window by Jonas Jonasson, and The Sexual Life of Catherine M by Catherine Millet.
