True Blood 从第一季追到如今第六季(仍在热播)。吸血鬼的话题,不只在于惊悚血腥色情,而在生命、死亡、力量、欲望、永恒与变化等这些概念所在。如果不敢选择永恒孤独黑暗,又或根本没有“吸血鬼”,没有“转化”,那么,生下来,就总有要死的一天。你要怎么去度过几十到一百年?我的答案是:珍惜。 ——— 你的回答呢?

观鸟爱好者们发现了什么? - 纽约时报中文网

观鸟者是一种假意的掠食者。看到一种没见过的鸟,可比作抓住了一种鸟,而看到一种稀有的鸟或F.O.Y.(要向外行解释一下,这是“今年看到的第一只”[First of the Year]的意思)是值得炫耀的事。将某一天里看到的鸟列出来,是一场祈祷,对在此时此地享有生命的一种感恩。而把这份清单发到网上去,就成了一种21世纪版的还愿献祭。由什么神掌管就不清楚了。<p>在古罗马,了解鸟类的人威信甚高,今日亦是如此。也有与之一较长短的昆虫爱好者、树木鉴赏家和真菌迷恋者,可是,他们的文化声望和人数都赶不上观鸟者。美国有580万观鸟者,比全美的图书俱乐部会员或威斯康星州居民总数要略高一点。这是一支信奉原始的猎人神秘主 …

裘德·洛不再是你们说的“英俊小生”了 - 纽约时报中文网

“真对不起,”裘德·洛(Jude Law)这样解释他早餐(这会儿应该算早午餐了)迟到的原因。“我刚才去照顾小猫了。”(小猫被困到树上了?)“照顾小孩,”见我听错,他又重复了一遍:他10岁的儿子发烧了,需要提前从学校接回来。<p>当然,此时此刻,当他已经来到了他家附近的咖啡馆,迅速地坐下,拿起了菜单,我不可能再去责怪他了。更让人迷惑的是,他看起来完全不像他自己,或者说至少不像他通常出现在屏幕上的形象。不再是那个优雅、消瘦、表情严肃、有着深邃的蓝眼睛、长相英俊得让人大呼“老天不公”的明星,而是另一个人,一个收了工的裘德。这个版本更健壮、不那么帅、有胡子,他是故意在拍戏间歇留胡子的,因为只有在这种时候,他 …

梵高并不狂躁,反而深思熟虑 - 纽约时报中文网

阿姆斯特丹——艺术爱好者们一眼就能认出文森特·梵高(Vincent van Gogh)1888年的画作《卧室》(The Bedroom),因为这幅画采用了他典型的对比色画法,蜜黄色的床紧靠在房间角落里,墙壁是舒服的天蓝色。但是如果你知道梵高最初是把墙壁涂成了紫罗兰色,而不是蓝色;或者说梵高与其说是一个与内心恶魔斗争的艺术家,不如说是更像一个深思熟虑、目标明确的艺术家,那你对这幅画的感觉是否会有所不同?<p>这些问题是基于一项新的分析而被提出的。该分析由壳牌石油公司的科学家们与荷兰文化遗产组织,以及最近翻修过的荷兰梵高博物馆的管理者们合作进行,梵高博物馆是世界上收藏这位荷兰后印象派画家的作品最多的机构 …

菲茨杰拉德夫妇,那对漂亮冤家 - 纽约时报中文网

他们可以说是现代第一对名人夫妇,是横行于新世纪的“爵士时代”化身。她是早熟的南方美女,被宠坏的坏女孩;他来自中西部,从普林斯顿大学辍学,把自己的经历写进了小说《人间天堂》(This Side of Paradise)。20世纪20年代,斯科特和泽尔达·菲茨杰拉德(Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald)先后在纽约、格雷特内克、巴黎和法国南部生活过,在他们的身后,留下了一连串破碎的香槟酒杯和闪闪发亮的俏皮话。他们悲剧性的、缓慢的沉沦——她坠入疯狂,在几家精神病院进进出出,他则沉迷于酒精,陷入公众的冷漠之中——似乎不可避免,就像是从斯科特的小说里摘录出来的情节一般。她鲁莽到了古怪的程 …
