Ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, Allyson Felix Is Running for Black Mothers Everywhere
"In two thousand eighteen decorated american sprinter allyson felix began the arduous process of conditioning. Her body for the twenty twenty olympics in tokyo. We all know what happened next. The pandemic broke out and the games were postponed for a full year which means that felix has essentially had to live through her trimester twice the newly popular term which was coined by author lawrence road in her twenty seventeen book of the same name in capsules often challenging months when many postpartum mothers rejoined the workforce moments of which felix has had many. Because it isn't just her track and field. Training that has required endurance. The nine time olympic medalist and the only woman to win six olympic track and field. Gold medals has become a vocal advocate for fetal and maternal healthcare and equal pay causes that she has taken up in front of congress and in a widely circulated new york times op. Ed in which he criticised nike for failing to add protections to her contract in the months surrounding the birth of her daughter in response the company announced a new maternity policy that guaranteed an athletes pay and bonuses for eighteen months surrounding pregnancy. This week proctor and gamble released a series of video celebrating felix's accomplishments both on and off the track as she prepares to return to the olympic qualifiers in june as a sprinter a season competitor and as a mom who still needs to negotiate childcare with her partner. I imagine the last year has been particularly interesting for. I mean everybody has their own version of hal. The pandemic has impacted them personally. But i can't imagine having trained for a full year expecting the games to happen. And then basically getting a year pause and it occurred to me that you are essentially in what is now called your fifth trimester which kind of evolves for many months. When you're sort of a new and working mom and you have a very unique job. So i'm very curious you know how did your life kind of change. You have a small child at home. You'd been training for a year trying to get back to where you need to be. Then you get a whole other year at any point. Did you sort of think. I'm not gonna do this. I was very doubtful. There was a time period. I think it was right when the olympics were announced that they were going to be postponed and our family had made so many sacrifices. Like you said we had worked so hard already to that point you know with dealing with the you know the exhaustion. The lack of sleep in it just felt like a whole 'nother year. You're asking us to do this it. It felt very very hard. And i felt like I was still kind of taking space degree. The loss at the olympics wasn't going to happen the way that i had imagine And then think after. I went through that then. I was like well. We've come too far this point we're all in like i've got to see this thing through But there were moments that that were just difficult. I think any new mom new in freshly new working mom whatever that looks like for you. It's hard to figure out what your new life looks

Northern Ireland assembly meets after sixth night of unrest
"Edition of the briefing with me. Andrew mueller last night for the sixth consecutive night northern ireland witnessed scenes of the kind of violence likely to prompt considerable agitation in observers with long enough memories. More than fifty. Five police officers are known to have been injured in the last week and considerable damage done to buildings and vehicles. The worst of the most recent disturbances occurred around one of these so-called peace walls which separate nationalist and loyalist communities in west belfast. The northern ireland assembly has been recalled for an emergency session at stormont today on joined with more on this by lord. Peter hain former secretary of state for northern ireland lord as you would know better than most people the good agreement did not end sectarian tension in northern ireland. There has been sporadic tension and violence over the decades since but measured against that scale. How bad is what we're seeing. Now was nothing like as you indicate the level of bombing and assassination and horror at the said. He has also troubles brought to northern ireland. Whistle the terrorism but It is serious and it needs to be addressed not just by northern ireland's leaders who displaying frankly a lack of leadership which is really disturbing but also by trade minister boris johnson and state for northern ireland who've been pretty absent from the scene in northern ireland now full quite a while and especially over this. What's your read of what's behind this because there is always the trap of reading significance which might not exist into what might just be a bunch of board young men looking for trouble. No this is that there are elements of that and they're a variety of other factors but the main problem has arisen over frustration amongst the unionist community the protestant community over the fact that there are checks and controls in for businesses doing trade. With great britain with england scotland or wales across the irish sea northern ireland of course is on an island with the republic of ireland to the cells and also within the united kingdom and within the united kingdom the rest of the united kingdom there are no barriers to trade of any kind between scotland. And or between wales and england for that matter scotland wales but they're on house result of brexit across the irish sea between england scotland and wales to northern ireland for the first time and that is the reason because the type of brexit that boris johnson. The prime minister pursued which was to break any real alignment with the european trade and customs arrangements and to go for at entirely separate of great britain but in order to make sure that the good friday peace process and the stability which has brought since ninety nine hundred was maintained. The irish border had to be kept open. Let's say the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland to itself as it has been now for decades and has become invisible with all sorts of human activity. Crossing it in their efforts not had the toxic role played a toxic role. Because it's been invisible it did in generations gone by and that's that's also the good if however that's it become the external frontier customs frontier of the european union. Then it could have ignited all those old problems that had beset and an bedeviled northern ireland. So instead what boris johnson agreed to was to keep the border open that men the northern ireland remained in the european union's customs union and it's trading markets but that's Inevitably because the united kingdom was leaving Great britain would be outside those arrangements so they have to be checks across the irish sea between northern ireland and great britain. of course. The prime minister denied this in his normal airy way At the beginning on the unionists and loyalists in particular who some of the most hardline involved feel betrayed. Because he didn't he wasn't straight with them way. Do you save in the causal connection between that dissatisfaction with the post brexit arrangements. And what we've seen in west belfast. Is it possible that there are people who are or were associated with loyalist paramilitarism. Who are leveraging that discontent to cause trouble. Yes there are and they're also criminals amongst them who drug. Traffic is and so on who've presented a police crackdown which has been quite effective in their communities to try and get rid of this drug trafficking problem and bought ignited. Not because of that so much though it's fit into it but also but primarily because suddenly loyalist protestant unionists suddenly found that Country what boris johnson told them. There are actually checks and controls strangling a lot of northern ireland businesses in a mountain of tape and naturally they see that as a break within the united kingdom because which puts northern ireland in a different place from say england scotland or wales and so they feel that their fundamental beliefs in the the union of the united kingdom northern ireland. Being within that is being threatened. And that is what ignites it. There was none of this until that issue suddenly arose around new year because the prime minister frankly say told a lot of porky's on us and didn't level with the unionist community and they suddenly found themselves in this predicament and had created Insecurity and understandable anxiety out of which these other factors criminality usa Vandalism and so on out of which that's fed you mentioned earlier a an absence of leadership both in northern ireland and in the united kingdom what would a constructive response from especially northern irish politicians. At this point look like presumably not like the one We saw her on twitter from arlene foster who went and it is a a term with which you will be familiar. Full water battery Suggesting that the violence will die quote. Take the focus off the real lawbreakers incheon. Fine that's probably not the most helpful into intercession. She could have made at this point. Is it well when you become first minister which is effective northern ireland as she is Although it's an unusual arrangement that she has joins us with the deputy minister. Michelle neil who's a shouldn't fain leader when you reach these positions you've got to speak for the whole of the community promises and president presidents naturally have their own party agendas to follow in their own party members to satisfy in any country in any democratic system. But you're trying to speak for the whole nation and that for the whole nation as well once you assume those positions and what has been disappointing about both of them and especially in recent days. Me aline fosters utterances. She's not adopted that role. She's effective acting as a party politician. A democratic unionist party rather than speaking for the whole of the the the the community across northern ireland and across the religious and political divides that have bedeviled for so many generations. And i think that's the kind of leadership we need. And we have gossips equally across the water London has been virtually silent on northern ireland. Now full rarely ever since David cameron and the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten under make this point on a on a party. Basis is a leave a politician and also it was labor secretary of state for northern ireland. A because it's traditionally been a nonpartisan issue between both the major parties. I make it. Because i'm genuinely an i've being hugely critical of the the absence of of number ten downing street of the prime minister in a way. That's attorney blend. Gordon brown were in vogue. John major's conservative prime minister before them. playing an honest broker role effectively. What they've done is said will not you know the the good friday process the peace settlement that i helped to negotiate in two thousand seven that brought the old enemies to share power together. That that's all done and dusted and therefore we can concentrate on the other pressures of government and that was fatal So we only seen a couple of sentences from the prime minister over the last few days when parts of belfast up in flames and a couple of tweets from the northern ireland secretary of state. Frankly that's not good enough. They should be convening all party. Talks in person to try and resolve these as labor shattered secretary. St louis hague has called for And they should be on the case all the time instead of effectively absence without leave as has been the case over northern ireland now sadly for a number of years lord haein. Thank you as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is markle's ailing goffin. With the days of the headlines. Thanks andrew in the serum institute.

How Virgie Tovar Is Leading a Fat Revolution
"Virgin. Thank you for waking early. Do this leisure burji tell me about being four years old and the first thing you would do when you come home. I was a little fat kid. I was a chubby kid in chubby family and my favorite thing to do every day. When i got home from running errands with my grandma was jiggle. I would push open the front door and i would run to the bathroom and i would take all my clothes and then i would run how to the kitchen or my grandmother pretty much lives and i would like spread out my arms and legs and i would jiggle and she would just laugh and laugh and i just it really sort of is as vivid memory because i had forgotten about that beautiful jiggling feeling in adult head. But like i had this recollection a few years ago that like oh my goodness. I used to love that sensation of fat moving. Like i love. Ital- my arm fat like moved on my tummy. Fat moves in my size fat moved and it felt like magic. I remember thinking it felt lake the water in the bathtub or like the water at the pool. It was like so pleasurable to feel that sensation of my body moving and it's such a high contrast to how were taught to think of that sensation adult head. You know i do. I mean and i have a four year old daughter and she loves to do multiple outfit changes a day. She is super into her body and it breaks me knowing that at some point that could change. When did it change for you. It changed for me around the same time that it changes for most children in the united states. Which is the age of five so most children learn about something called fat phobia when they're about five years. Old and fat phobia is essentially a form of bigotry. It's an idea that says a an entire group of people who comprise about seventy percent of the. Us population are inferior. Because they're higher weight and that of your body extends to like and fury were romantically inferior where intellectually inferior where incapable of completing tasks. There's a lot of evidence that shows that people have really negative attitudes about higher weight people. And i started learning about that and becoming a target of that phobia at the five. We're kids learning that. At five it seems to coincide pretty strongly with introduction to formal education. Five is also the age children typically go to kindergarten. They're in an environment where there's children of all ages i think for some people. They're learning it at home and their parents. I've talked to a lot of people who whose parents put them on a diet at a very young age often at the recommendation of their pediatrician. And i think obviously we live in a culture where the message that being big as a bad thing is omnipresent rate like ended subtle in some ways right like you think about who's always the hero who's always the villain who is the person who falls in love and who's the friend who's always pining. Who's the person you're supposed to relate to in a movie. And who's the person you're supposed to sort of make fun of or or not relate your feel embarrassed for in media. There's this phrase that. I often use a my work. Not and i'm not the only one but it's diet culture or weight loss culture and that we really use the word culture. Because it's inescapable it's like everywhere right. You see it on the street. You see it on your screen you see it in your intimate life. It's kind of unavoidable. Last night. i was reading the book. I was eating pita chips. And i looked at the bag. And it's a bad guy by all the time and it said reduced guilt. But i don't have any guilt about this like this. Why are you trying now. Now he'll guilty like it's reduced from what i guess it would have been but lake. I did not realize the extent to which the word diet had gone out of vogue and had been replaced by some more subtle but equally nefarious constructs. Absolutely i think diet culture like any toxic system is really good at adapting the point of diet culture again any toxic system. Our culture is to maintain itself by any means. Necessary especially as body. Positivity has become really trendy. You're gonna see more and more. That word diet is going to be going away. In fact diets are going to be saying. We're not a dime. I literally got an ad the other day that was for an ad diet app and it was like. This isn't a diet this something else. It's not as i mean literally. That's like unlike girl your diet of a diet that's you. I don't know what you're talking about.
Interview With Jeremy Scott
"Good morning bob. This is nicole phelps. I'm the director of global vogue runway. And i'm here today with jeremy. Scott jeremy on or you. How are you jeremy's mosquito collection and video have been all over social media for the last twenty four hours or so and chances are you've probably seen it andrews christian madsen who is a colleague of mine at vogue runway. Put it this way. I thought this was a great quote. No one has quite aced this digital moment in fashion history. Like jeremy so we have lots of questions about how it all came together. Thank you very much for being here with us. My absolute love all right. Well you know i am. In addition to reviewing some shows all season long. I do a lot of editing. And and i thought anders made some really great observations in your piece and you said some very interesting things which i want to quote here. Which is you said. You use the term comfort sh- mumford and you elaborated to say what we need now. More than ever is fantasy and glamour. And i obviously don't disagree. But i am curious for you to talk to us. About how the way you design and what you design has changed if at all after a year in in lockdown amidst the pandemic. Well i think you know very well watching my work. That i'm a very devout devotee of high octane glamour. Always and so. That part really hasn't changed. I might have put the pedal to the metal a little bit more this season and last but i think what's changed a lot. It's kind of like what we're doing right now. Everything i'm seeing are through screens. I did my fittings through screens through something like this. You know thinking about how the work is seeing. It's all seeing through screen so i'm looking at it already. My work is very Theatrical and very photogenic. And i think of it in a way how would be finally consumed always but now it's almost entirely consumed at this moment via screens. So i've i've been watching it in a different way. So while doing the fittings with my team and milan and they are doing the actual pinning in the actual adjustments for me. And i'm directing it in in a manner like this. I'm watching it in a in a in a way that takes away that that moment of being next to it and there is something i think that does give it a little bit more of remove that makes it a little bit more in a way precise i know sounds kind of weird. Did say it that way. But i don't have the emotional moment of the model in front of me and everything happening live. I'm more dissecting it. 'cause i'm looking at through a screen and i am. I am removed in that respect. So i feel like part has changed and maybe even well i feel. That's a good segue to talk about the the collections last season to refresh people's memory. Jeremy did a fantastic video where he turned models and Front row goers in into marionettes and it was a huge ships are on vogue runway and an across the internet. And what you did this season was you. I would say paid homage to a very famous movie. Called the women from nineteen thirty nine george cougar film and s specific seen so specific fashion show scene. Can you tell us anything about your experience with that movie. Maybe when you saw it for the first time or why are you. Liked it enough to recreate it for this. Absolutely i verify brain to even remember when i could have seen it first. 'cause it's one of things that feels like it's been with me forever. I think any real fashion fan would put this on one of their top. Ten list of you know old hollywood films especially ones that have a fashion show in it. One is really the creme de la creme not only. Is it beautifully done. But also there are the costumes by adrian who is also it's such a icon for so many fashion designers and having done all the most beautiful all hollywood glamorous films and costumes at that time but beyond the costumes i think for me is is really the fact that the film is only women. There's only actresses. There's not one time. There's a a a male actor in the film even with a voice. So i love that because honestly as normal is that maybe should be today. It's still not normal. Hollywood for an all female cast to be able to carry a film and not film doesn't so beautifully now specifically for the scene that was inspired by is the fashion show scene in their out of salon. Which is such an you know. Typical historical fashion kind of scenario. And this was more like the the dressmaker salon. Instead of. maybe the paris couturier and they're coming to choose the their guard the road for the season. I wanted to kind of think about all the things that they would need to wear now again thinking about the time of the film. These ladies did not work. They were not having jobs their characters. Were you know really dependent upon men. So i wanted to start mind with them. As busy businesswomen in takes of the pin stripe suit these kind of business looks that would be putting them in charge. And not you know quibbling about the fact that they're working they're only working you're working for them and they're not working for you

It's John from "From Podcast to Vodcast"
"He's a guy with a bit of a video background and animation background and he hosts a podcast and video. Podcast known as a vodka cast. And it's called from podcast to vodka passed. His name is john and we had a nice little talk about technical stuff today. You know he really gave him very solid easy to follow advice on how to put out a good podcast or good vodkas and a lot of people are doing a lot of live streaming now. I have not gotten to that point yet. But you don't wanna see me analyze team. They'll be like please someone get that man to her doctor or something like that. I don't know but how listen to my conversation with john from podcast to vote cast. Hello the rebels. We are in the audio room of the sherpa chalet. My guest is john who's got podcast. He's been going on a little while. And it is called from. Podcast evolved cast. It's really geared toward podcasters. But you do interview all sorts of people. It's not just a technical stuff. It's still out of getting to know like this show but little more to the finer points of five gase right how you doing john. I'm good thank you for having me today. This is awesome. it's a pleasure to have. You wanted to tell us a little bit about yourself so we kind of get to know your background sir My name is john I've been podcasting since february on various different shows right now. Running three different shows I- background in graphics and video editing. Which is kind of the reason why i decided to Make a show about taking your podcasts. To avoid cast you know. So i'm i'm kind of good with video and i wanted to make vodka cast and when in the early days when i first started seeing I started going live on social media. And i really loved the platform so so i really put my all into it and i made my stream and my own my vodkas videos pretty like top notch so So i had a lot of people asking me how to do that. How'd you do that. Teach me how to do that. So from podcast of justice born. And that's that's how it came about. What do you think about the streaming medium. I mean as far as podcasts are concerned. You think that it's it's enhancement. What do you think after a while. it's just gonna be overplayed. I definitely do not think it's going to be overplayed my motto with from podcast. Podcast is that vogue thing is the evolution of podcasting. It's basically the next step of podcasting if if you're a podcast and you're not broadcasting you're limiting yourself to the To the audience that you can that you can grasp and close at the same time. It's it's really a connection with your audience. You know they'd get to see you get to see what you look like the person behind the voice you know and it's just it's that extra bit of connection that solidifies that subscribe at solidifies that follow in order. I mean because we become such a nation of video hungry people video-on-demand and youtube and hockey. They always want to see what. What is somebody gonna do on video. Is it going to be something. That's going to be memorable or they're going to be something that's going to be the same old thing sir. Yeah it's probably like you said it's it's a struggle right. You gotta keep everything fresh and interesting. Absolutely you know like I have a cast that i publish video on youtube but at the same time i also have tiktok. You know where i do. Shorts versions of videos zoar. You know. I do some comedy relief. You know on one of my other shows and you know i it's just all these other platforms on. Social media is just a way for you to gather more followers. And bring them to your podcast. What he thinks. He's like the biggest mistake when people go to video that that it's just not catching fire. Think there is certain glaring errors said on on the average. Your i do. I mean. I don't wanna say that it's the lack of quality. Because i am a big proponent of if you don't have top of the line gear then use your cell phone you know. I'm a huge believer in using your cell phone. You create a podcast which you don't have a good microphone. You don't have a boom arm or road cast pro. Who cares. use your cell phone. You know Same thing with vodka casting you can make hd videos on a new iphones and posted to youtube and it would look great. But i do still see those vodka who the quality of the show is not really there you know. And it's it's a little disheartening. Because i know that just with a little bit of effort you know that you know they. They can bring their show to another level and you know because i think when somebody tunes into watch. They're looking for that quality. I i had heard at one point that your audience can forgive your video the quality of your video if your audio is on point okay. But they can't forgive the opposite so you know one either one or the other has to be on point and so really what i tell people to invest in off. The beginning is just a microphone. You know they're one hundred dollars. Maybe a little cheaper like the twenty one hundred x or even this robot mike. It's one hundred bucks. Make sure your audio quality is up to par and your video won't matter so much but at least it'll be listenable. It definitely is an important point john. And it's funny. Because i've gotten into this discussion online with people when they ask about like. I've been asked. What do you think of my show. I want some feedback and some of these people they sound like and i say you know if you sound like you're talking from a whole the only people that are gonna listen to our worms and moles yup see like when i first started podcasting even just podcasting. Nobody or anything. I said out to have really good quality. I'm like all right. If i'm going to do this i'm going to do it right. You know so. So i went out and i bought an eight yards. Twenty one hundred. And that was the end of that. You know and i bought and i literally just connected at straits on my laptop at the time and just recorded that way and now i'm running through a road pod mike which cost one hundred dollars Attached to a road boom arm and a road broadcaster pro. I'm not saying you have to buy the expensive stuff right off the bat but you can build up to it. But i do suggest buying a good microsoft about.

"It felt so much like my life. That i couldn't even relate to it as a film. He told me and yet when well shot his scenes with mcdormand there was an eerie degree of make believe in play. I can't even find words to describe watching her. He said she nighttime traveled to empire nevada. Where she lived with her husband bo. I can't remember names. But i will always remember that ferns husband's name is bo and nomad land. As in the writer. John gives us a different kind of western. She is less interested in the myth of individualism than in the reality of interdependence. This is what drew mcdormand detail. It's why she asked zhao to direct the movie after she optioned brooders book. The rider of vote the possibilities of wide open spaces on reinvention and self-determination the same glorious since of freedom all the american troops all the cowboys stuff but dormann said but put it all in a tribal setting. Nomad land puts it in a female story. Mcdormand explained with fern. It's kinda like shane or john. Wayne's character in the searchers men that don't seem to have a past only present no future arrived fully formed and they disappear except with fern because she's female scott a lot of stuff with her. She's got a whole van full memories. Women don't necessarily come out of nowhere. Mcdormand never knows how character is going to land until she's in a theater with an audience sometimes a character resonates in a way that goes beyond expectations. There's rolling laughter. Enrolling catharsis she explained moving her torso arms in undulating wave motion. It first happened with marge. The audience reaction made the hairs on the front of her scalp stand up. It's happened with olive with mildred A couple of recent screenings with fern mcdormand wanted audiences to have this catharsis together. She worried the pandemic might preclude it. The greeks knew she said the point was to get together. Mcdormand noted that some ancient theaters even had a section for people who were sick and dying. The acoustics were designed so that these people who were lying there could be healed through drama and this collective experience she said on the other hand the pandemic has also made a specific promise of catharsis nomad land. More needed we've all had to in some way face mortality. She said a few times during our walk. Conversation turned to the meaning of this interview. Mcdormand brought it up repeatedly. What did it mean for sixty three year. Old woman to be on the cover of a fashion magazine. She wanted me to pose the same question to jerry. Lorenzo the designer hind the menswear line fear of god whose brown sutin hoodie. She's wearing on vogues cover. It was pedro. Mcdormand cohen jackson says the whole name. Who suggested she were fear of god. Pedro is twenty six now in works public relations but he still loves fashion. What would lorenzo think of mcdormand wearing has closed for this story. She wanted to know. i'm speechless. Lorenzo told me later. I can't think of anyone more gangster than her before we walked docked to the parking lot. The topic came up one last time. Why her. I told her that people just really loved her movie. Mcdormand got quiet than she said to still be culturally relevant as a sixty three year old female so deeply deeply gratifying. It's something that. I could have. Never expected given what i was told and i believe i had something to do with it. I've crafted some part of this moment in time and i'm really fucking proud..

"When pedro showed an interest in sports mcdormand coen found themselves in new territory. I don't know how to play sports. Mcdormand's said his dad's not really sportifs. Pedro's athletic we kinda handicapped because neither of us wanted to take him to games and stuff on the weekend. Patriot did inherit mcdormand's love of fashion. Though she would take him to century twenty one on his birthday is kinda like a sport. Fresh she said shopping is what he and i do together by the time. Federal was in highschool mcdormand was starting to think about producing. She knew she'd need to fill her time with something. When pedro left home she worried she'd be bereft and wanted to steal herself against despair. Mcdormand was also itching to play the protagonist. She'd made a million movies by them and worked with a million female directors. Okay more like aid. But the parts offered to her were still while peripheral when she had asked cohen why he didn't write better parts for women. He had responded that he didn't know how she optioned. Olive kindred one week before won. The pulitzer mcdermott is passionate about housewifery. It's a profession. She says and she found that her own experience in that field translated fluidly into producing plus she liked having a say in the material things she knew right away when she had scouted the right house for olive. for instance. the window over the sink was perfect. Mcdormand doesn't know about you but she needs to look outside when she's washing dishes. She had input unimportant. Non material things to like the soundscape. If you pay attention you'll hear lots of scrubbing abrasive of likes. Describe things though. Mcdormand doorman wasn't a producer. On three billboards. She did inform writer. Director martin mcdonagh that the completely radicalized mildred would be wearing nothing but jumpsuits suits mcdormand has been making statements about age on the award circuit the not wearing makeup. The not dying her hair. She wore birkenstocks to the oscars. Because why the hell not mcdormand says it's political but i wonder if that two cells are short. Her success is much more symbolic after all if she done lots of things to her face if she were no longer utterly recognizable what characters could she play makes. You wonder about all the stuff mcdormand was told. Her example seems to disprove it. Her example seems to say not only. Is it not true. The opposite might be true at some point in her forties. Mcdormand told khou in the following. When i'm sixty five. I'm changing my name to fern. I'm smoking lucky strikes. I'm drinking wild turkey. I'm getting an rv. And i'm hitting the road. This became the baseline gel filled in the rest with information. She gathered over a period of many months. Mcdormand related stories about life showed slides and photographs.

"Fourteen an english teacher to high school in manassas pennsylvania. A steel town near pittsburgh had students perform shakespeare scenes after class. Mcdormand played lady macbeth soon. She was the only theatre major at bethany college in west virginia attending on scholarship because it was affiliated with the disciples of christ. She got to play desharnais in the sondheim musical a little night music. She got to do a lot of things we would do. O'neill in absence. She said we weren't just doing razzmatazz jazz hand stuff. A few of her professors pitched in so that she could travel to audition for yale. Drama school she enrolled in nineteen seventy nine the year. Lloyd richards took over as dean richards. A luminary who with the original production of a raisin in the sun became the first black director stage. A broadway play emphasized dramaturge. It was about the words about the scripts about the plays about the literature. Mcdormand said after graduation mcdormand went straight to new york. She got an apartment in the bronx. A job in midtown at recio of london where she worked as a cashier and sold and stole godiva chocolates. I wore a white dwarf and along brown polyester skirt. She said her roommate. Holly hunter recommended her for a role in blood. Simple the coen brothers first film in juarez and absurd tale of misguided violence set in texas hunter. Had gotten the part but was already committed to a broadway play. Mcdormand played abby. A young adulterous husband. Hires a hitman to kill her herself. Curls dimpled chin dainty ninety vacant expression an integrate. Abby pins her assassin's hand to a window sill with a steak knife while filming in austin mcdormand coen for book recommendations. He gave her a box of raymond. Chandler and dashiell hammett novels. She asked which one she should start with. He said the postman always rings twice. Which is one of the hottest books ever. She said he seduced me with the choice of books. I seduced him by inviting him over to discuss them back in new york. They moved in together. I realized i could have a relationship that was really e- passionate but that didn't keep us from also being able to have a functioning working relationship. She said i went. Oh it's possible to not become so obsessed that you can't live your life. Raising arizona was the cohen's second movie and they wrote dot specially for mcdormand. This may have created an expectation that she would be in our films when the role of verna in their third movie. Miller's crossing went to marcia gay harden mcdormand was vexed. Why isn't me. she thought. Mcdermott worked with other directors. By then she already. Played mrs powell. The klansman's wife mississippi burning and earned her first oscar nomination. But good rules were hard to come by. She felt vernice. Should have been hers. That was part of my learning process. In part of our learning process privately is a couple of mcdormand. Said we both had to work through that. You're not gonna get a role every time. Dorm had been trained to play the leading ladies of theater. The head of the style is the oldest. She'd been on cherry jones trajectory but there was no obvious path in film. She was constantly told she didn't look right. I wasn't pretty. I wasn't cute. I wasn't beautiful. I didn't have the body. She said cohen helped her depersonalize. The rejection and the medium of film physical type can trump talent over time. She hit on certain ish. The friend of the pretty girl. The girlfriend of substance to the much older man. It wasn't just that i decided. She said it was clear. That's the only thing. I was going to get jobs doing. Mcdormand worked with great directors. She was betty and robert altman's cuts but even the good roles could be thin. Notice how mrs powell has no first name. Others were drawn in laughably crude terms after she wore prosthetic breasts in raising arizona for instance. I started getting scripts that literally said big breasted woman. She said so. She brought the boobs two additions. Carting them around in a box. They became props like a false nose or a wig. She said you could play the boobs at one edition. It was suggested that the production might be able to work a boob job into the budget as an actual surgery. I asked unsure her right actual surgery. She shouted the word sounded absurd. Echoing through the eucalyptus mcdormand learn to stop asking. Have she had a part in whatever new movie. The coens were writing. Eventually she would have her age and ask instead when she got the script for fargo. She wasn't sure about march. It wasn't obvious to me what her power was. She said when she was in the full gap though with the boobs in the birdseed belly march started to come to life. Thought of this later. When i asked holly hunter what made mcdormand unique as an actor. It's a weird ineffable thing hunter said in her body in this might be relevant when they were filming fargo mcdormand. Coen knew they would be adopting a baby their now grown son. Pedro they'd been having trouble with fertility seen fargo marge's husband norm rubs her belly and says two more months while when they shot it they knew pedro would be arriving from paraguay. Two months wait. Did cohen make march pregnant. For this reason there was a certain deliberate quality to it. Mcdormand said we were expecting. They raised pedro in new york. Cohen shot movies during the summer. Mcdormand took one film role year in did a lot of theater though. They'd rejected organized. Religion mcdormand wanted to give pedro some kind of mythology. He was going to need stories. Part of the adoption pathology. she explained. She decided they would celebrate pagan holidays. I couldn't commit to christianity. She said but nature. I could always commit to that. And the power of it. Cohen went along with humor. One day he returned from greenwich village bookstore with a pile of books on paganism including one called pagan parenting..

I'd watched nomad land right before the center of usa firm was fresh in my mind. This linton uncanny dimension to the afternoon. I spent with mcdormand as we walked along the beach picnic on adrift driftwood log and sat in the shade of a eucalyptus canopy. I wasn't always sure if i was talking to fran or fern. Some character actors. Get typecast others. Chameleons mcdormand falls into the chameleon category though she has never physically unrecognizable when she disappears into character she does so through the force of her acting and yet the women's she embodies are so distinctive so idiosyncratic and sometimes so strange. I tend to remember them. As though they were real people her performances are indelible. The way dan rbis photograph is indelible a snapshot of individual utterly unique in alive. The first mcdormand characters leave a permanent impression on my brain was dot the excitable slightly deranged friend who comes to sneak peek. A loo at holly hunter stolen baby and raising arizona. The movie was on repeat in my house in the eighties. And though i was a kid. I was drawn into. It's surreal color saturated world. When i watched it last spring i noticed that dot was reflecting a tight. Now familiar to me. The all knowing authority on who motherhood is bestowed lifetime. Licensed to dispense unsolicited advice. I marveled at how in mcdormand's hands type becomes particular and dots cates an ear bending hysteric with poofy mullet in wild is who frantically squeezes yellow mustard onto white bread while admonishing new parents.

She couldn't pinpoint why most of it was in the riding. Doran said joel cohen partner of thirty eight years and his brother. Ethan wrote march specifically for her the cadence. The rhythm of the dialect was in the script. Mcdormand said all those guys were on the page. There was also an element. Of surprise to marge. We were not taught to expect. The pregnant cop will be the most competent one march solves the crime between prodigious meals and bouts of morning sickness apprehending. The murderer feeds as accomplice's body into a wood chipper. But the writing can account for all of it can. It doesn't fully explain why more than two decades later strangers. Still shout you betcha to mcdermott on the street. There was something chemical going on and marge's waddell in her heavy parka and the near of minnesota nice in the inimitable way she surmised one grisly crime scene was an execution. Type deal here. Mcdormand recalled the prosthetic belly. She wore house filled with birdseed. It had a real weight to it. She said it completely informed the way i moved. She got closer to an answer when describing olive. I think in all of the twenty fourteen television miniseries based on elizabeth's droughts pulitzer winning novel mcdormand played the doughty depressed math teacher. At the center of the story doling out barbs in downing dachshund mcdormand explained that she found her all of in part by constructing her material world by picking out our dishes and our silverware watches. The process was outside in inside out. She said i find that. I developed interior life of a character where the things that are around her like. Marge olive mark determining point from dormant. Until then she had played supporting or ensemble roles onscreen as she put it females who exist to make sure that you understand that the protagonist is male but all of carried the series and the series swept the emmys then another lead role arrived in the form of mildred the enraged mother. She played in three billboards. Mildred dorm. In her second oscar. Everything about this lane changes rare. Of course it's unusual for any longtime peripheral actor to become a bankable lead but a female actor in her sixties. There may be a german word for this magnitude of gravity defying feats. But i don't know when in english if you think about it long enough you start to question. Whether character actors still inaccurate description mcdormand the term starts to say as much about the conventions of hollywood storytelling as it does her place within them. If character actors play the characters are lead roles empty vessels. What do you call a character. Actor who becomes a lead mcdormand says. She is bringing marginal characters to the center. This description is not an accurate. But i can't help feeling. It sells mcdormand a bit short. The statement is true only when you are using movies as your frame of reference. Such characters are not marginal in the real world after all in the real world. Female depression enrage are not uncommon human faces age and women continue to lead lives after sixty lives. That often have little to do with men. If you reference point is the real world. Mcdormand isn't bringing the margin to the center so much as she's bringing more of the world to the screen several mcdormand's early film roles were in coen brothers movies from afar. This created a vague impression that she sprang fully formed from their stylized universe in reality. She was born cynthia. Ann smith nineteen fifty seven in gibson city illinois to a single mother at one and a half she was adopted by vernon noreen mcdormand. Great names right. She said and they changed her name to francis the mcdormand's were a she put it solid working class. Educated people both originally from canada vernon was a minister for the disciples of christ who had a knack for rehabilitating struggling gra. Noreen was a minister's wife fulltime job.

Nine foster children in all she was the third and last to be adopted there was a performance aspect to life in the mcdormand family vernon had a quiet friendly preaching style. He wasn't a holy roller bible. Thumper doorman said but he's still got up in front of people a certain expectation thus extended to the children. Perhaps the idea that the kids of a preacher had to toe the line she said or at least seemed like they were toeing the line or give off the right public relations.

"As an actor francis mick dorman is as much a chameleon as she is unfailingly herself this month. She appears as one of four covers provokes january issue. I'm abby gerry and in october. I met mcdermott near her home on the pacific coast to talk about her life her career a nomad land her beautiful new film about life on america's margins. This is my story for vogue. Allowed to tell you where this took place. She made this clear at the outset. I can tell you that. It was an unincorporated. Township known for its natural beauty approach from the east ridges of towering redwoods give way to a tidal estuary favored by great blue herons snowy egrets beyond the lagoon. Lies the secret place. A small peninsula on which lose patchwork of idyllic farms rustic homes and piney smelling eucalyptus groves stretches into the pacific. This shangri la is secret in the era of geo tagging but locals do what they can to maintain its seclusion. Ej remove road signs to divert visitors fittingly. The secret place is separated from the north american continent by an active fault. It is literally on a different tectonic plate. I met her in the parking lot of one particular beach where two miles of rocky shoreline are shielded by a tall bluff of cliffs. She pulled up at noon. Sharp in a sensible hatchback walking across the parking lot she stopped in her tracks pulled down her pandemic mask and with her free hand pointed comically to her face. as if to confirm what was already unmistakable. She was francis mcdormand. Mcdormand was dressed. In a long denim skirt addendum button up an addendum coat all of which were the same shade of indigo. Her shoes were handmade with sand colored leather by spanish called satory son so named for a mythical monster of ancient japan a supernatural creature capable of reading people's hearts. I know this because the editor on her photo shoot so taking with the shoes she tracked them down and ordered them in multiple colors. I feel confident asserting. That mcdermott is the first cover subject to inspire vogue editor to scour the catalog. though each of mcdormand's clothing items appeared to have been made in the twenty first century her monochrome silhouette amounted to something more timeless from a distance. She looked like she'd stepped out of a nineteenth century. Ten type annie. Oakley at sixty three had oakley cropped her hair and traded in her marlin rifle for rei backpack and close range. Mcdormand is quite beautiful. Her skin is rosy enclosed with good health enhanced. I imagined by the fresh drinking water. She procures from spring near her house in repose tends to be dead pan except for her is which are deep blue would have a mischievous glimmer but when she tells the story or doesn't impression say of her husband. Joel cohen admiring a rather wide leg. Jumpsuit she likes to wear spongebob squarepants. He says her features become elastic. Mcdormand has long made policy not to manipulate her appearance. She does not use botox talks to flat in wrinkles or filler to inflate her cheeks she smiles and she does often. they're no patches of muscle paralysis when she furrows her brow. It actually furrows these days. Mcdormand avoids with makeup even on the red carpet when she accepted her oscar for three billboards outside ebbing missouri. Two years ago she did so barefaced down a dirt path toward the beach. The sky was cloudless the false sun. Bright mcdormand is wary of the press in rarely grants interviews. I was reminded of this fifty seven seconds into our walk when she related the following the day of the shoot for this story. She got a splinter in her hand then this morning the day of our interview. She got another splinter in her hand. She was concerned. That the to splinters symbolic is this a sign she said. Is this going to be a thorn in my fucking side. The reason she was doing any interviews at all was her new movie nomad land. which by. Now you've probably seen. It's a stunning poem of a film directed by khloe. Zhao about a tribe of itinerant workers who live in. Rv's trailers and vans. These nomads are older than those usually associated with van life hashtag and they are certainly less affluent. Their movement was spawned not by instagram. But by the irresolvable clash of rising rents in flat wages with no mortgages to pay. They are free to move around. The country with the weather in the work from the sugarbeet harvest in north dakota to the holiday packing season at amazon's warehouses in california as jessica bruder the journalists who wrote the nonfiction book on which the film is based put. They are driving away from the impossible choices that face. What used to be the middle class. Most of the nomads in the movie are real life. Nomads playing some version of themselves. Mcdormand plays fern a fictional character written into the landscape by zhao. Who has forged a hybridize style of filmmaking that combines documentary and fiction most notably with the ryder her twenty seventeen portrait of a lakota rodeo cowboys set on the pine ridge reservation south dakota. She absorbs the stories of real people and spins partial fictions from their factual. world's zhao. Did some of this with mcdormand to furnace a widow who hits the road after the collapse of her company town in rural nevada. She is not a world renowned character actor who lives in the secret place but there is something a friend as mcdermott is known to her.

Stella mccartney was compelled by subverting fashioned systems. I mean even my degree show mountains. I didn't use any letter or when a lot is the fellow students were actually. They were all a lot of them. Were sponsored by companies. And i found that quite shocking. I didn't realize at the time that they kind of infiltrated quite early. On in the system to try and encourage people to use that material so mccartney graduated from central martins in nine hundred ninety five and in nine hundred. Ninety seven became karl lagerfeld successor. Khloe so i didn't obviously. And i when i got approached by cleric look. I'm not going to work in leather. And that was in tibet credit. It was incredible really that they took me on because everyone knows in our industry. That house is based on leather. Essentially it certainly at that time and still today really isn't based on sending clothes. It's based on selling handbags shoes. And that's letter in every company really still sadly and so they were okay with that which was a miracle. Tell us. Work was also informed by upbringing. Parents raised her as a vegetarian and she developed an interest in environmentalism early on meanwhile her parents idiosyncratic style was another profound influence on stella's fashion aesthetic. I had very fond memories of going through my mom and dad's wardrobe and finding these khloe pieces in my mom thinks that was beautiful. Like scoff silk scarf. Talks that we're actually quite sexy. Lovely use of color really beautiful use of material the fabrics were memorable. The prince lovely very nicely designed. Actually the call had done on a beautiful.

Bank was wearing them and how she was when she will them how. She turned into a slightly different side to herself. Matt's worth a huge amount to me in the design process. My real inspiration. Was this sort of psychological connection between what you wear and who you are and how clothing and fashion can actually bring out the best in you and make you feel better. And i remember who she became when she will those clearly pieces until a thought about the khloe woman of today and what she wanted to wear. I was just trying to sub puppies. I wanted everyone to wear my clothes. I wanted them to provide an emotional need for women of that time. I wanted them to feel comfortable. I wanted them to express themselves through. They were wearing. And i wanted to serve a purpose. I wasn't trying to shock. Anyone really and i wasn't trying to editorialize my work. I was trying to bring my work into a woman's wardrobe. I just wanted to design class. That i went. And that will. My girlfriend's friends could wear and they were and they did and that became quite powerful and so it was more. What do we want to wear is as young women. And how do we wanna feel and and also just shaking it up a bit you know. It was a parisian house. And i remember going then. They're like you have to put a sleeve on everything. And i was so intentionally didn't put asleep on anything. We were rebellious. I felt like. I had nothing to lose but that was quite naive and foolish because i didn't i honest to god didn't think anybody would even notice my going there. I realized you know it wasn't i. I wasn't a tool in the in the industry. I'd let she just come out of college. I look back. And i think you know naive not is just so powerful.

I thought i would probably grow up and be an architect. So i took a class at otis. Parsons and i realized that i was very interested in designing. I enrolled in parsons in new environmental design and it was the undergraduate program For architecture the idea was go through parcel. Get your bachelor's degree and then go to graduate school in architecture. So i did that while i was at parsons in new york. I decided to do my third year at Parts comparison so. I moved to paris and while it paris i took a trip to russia. And this sounds really crazy and very romantic. But i was in moscow.
