‘They’re patronising, arrogant …’ Caroline Lucas on fighting the Tories, leading the Greens and leaving parliament | Caroline Lucas

On a Monday afternoon in a bamboozling warren of offices next to the Palace of Westminster, Caroline Lucas is in yet another hurry. Forty-five minutes into the first part of our conversation, she reminds me that she has to sprint to the House of Commons to make sure her voice is heard in a debate – this time about Iran’s attack on Israel, and the RAF’s role in shooting down some of the drones involved. As usual, there is an inescapable obligation to fulfil: as the sole Green party MP, she says, she has no choice but to be there. A few hours later, I watch her contribution online: an eloquent, confident, slightly weary voice, delivering an argument unheard from either the Tory or Labour frontbenches. “Like the whole House, I condemn the attack on Israel by the tyrannical Iranian regime, just as I deeply condemn the atrocities of Hamas, but I am also incredibly concerned that our prime minister has now pitched the UK into a perilous war,” she says. When Rishi Sunak gets …

How George Lucas Saved ‘Return to Oz’

How George Lucas Saved ‘Return to Oz’

Return to Oz, Disney’s 1985 dark take on Dorothy Gale (played by a then-9-year-old Fairuza Balk), shares its creative DNA with Star Wars. Not only that, George Lucas saved writer-director Walter Murch‘s job after Disney fired Murch from the Oz shoot. Lucas and Murch were old friends and collaborators, having met in the film department of the University of Southern California in the mid-1960s. “My first memory of him was a shadowy figure behind me in the photograph developing room,” says Murch about Lucas on The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast It Happened in Hollywood. “I was trying unsuccessfully to develop one of the photographs that I had taken for an exercise, and there was this voice behind me that said, ‘You’re doing it wrong.’ And I turned around and I said, ‘Who is this guy?’ Of course, it turns out he was right. I was doing it wrong. But our friendship started off on that foot.” From there, the two men collaborated on several of Lucas’ short films, with Murch contributing cutting-edge sound design, until they …

Inside Zara and Mike Tindall’s bond with son Lucas – ‘They’re a very tactile family’

Inside Zara and Mike Tindall’s bond with son Lucas – ‘They’re a very tactile family’

While he might be a carbon copy of his dad, it’s clear to see that Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas, who celebrated his third birthday last week, is every inch a “mama’s boy”.  Musing on the pair’s mother-son bond, photographer James Whatling, who specialises in documenting the royal family, told HELLO!: “There are lots of pictures, often of Zara cuddling and kissing him – they seem to be a very tactile family, which is lovely.  “He’s a mini-me of Mike… and Mike is throwing the children in the air, super high, catching them.” The blond toddler came flying into the world on 21 March 2021, with former England rugby star Mike confirming the news on his sports podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugby.  “Sunday got even better because a little baby boy arrived at my house,” he told his co-hosts. “Arrived very quickly. Didn’t make it to [the] hospital. On the bathroom floor.   “So yeah, it was running to the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get the mat …

Mick Jagger’s son Lucas has the most hilarious response to his dad wildly dancing in a bar

Mick Jagger’s son Lucas has the most hilarious response to his dad wildly dancing in a bar

Mick Jagger, the legendary Rolling Stones frontman, has proven that even rock stars aren’t immune to a bit of parental embarrassment.  At 80, he recently took to Instagram to share a video of himself letting loose, dancing energetically to a live band’s music.  The video showcases Mick’s playful side, complete with exaggerated, goofy facial expressions and lively dance moves that include a dramatic bend to the floor and an impish crotch grab, all while looking directly into the camera. Captioning the clip with a nod to Maroon 5’s hit Moves Like Jagger, Mick humorously wrote, “Moves like who!”  This prompted a playful reaction from his son, Lucas Maurice Morad-Jagger, 24, who commented, “Dadda WHO PUT U UP TO THis,” showcasing the light-hearted family dynamics.  Mick shares Lucas with Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez Morad, with whom he welcomed his son on May 17, 1999. Mick’s illustrious life extends beyond the stage; he is a father to eight children and a great-grandfather.  © GettyRolling Stones, circa 1960.

Happy birthday Lucas Tindall! 10 adorable photos as young royal turns three today | Royal | News

Lucas Philip Tindall was born on March 21, 2021. Zara gave birth at home in the bathroom at Gatcombe Park with the help of her friend – now Lady-in-waiting to her mother, Dolly Maude. During an episode on his The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast, Mike recounted the jolly moment: “[Ms Maude] recognised that we wouldn’t have got to hospital in time. “So, it was run into the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get a mat on the floor, towels down, ‘brace-brace-brace.’” Mike added: “Fortunately, the midwife, who was going to meet us at the hospital wasn’t that far away, so she drove up, got there just as we’d assumed the pos-ish [as he called the position]. And then the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived.” (Image: Getty) Source link

“I’m very happy to be back,” Paqueta said. “Being in the national team has always been my dream, so when I return I feel even more privileged.

So, I’m happy, I’m doing it at my job and I hope to continue.” Source link

Lucas Samaras, Artist Who Used His Body in His Art, Dies at 87

Lucas Samaras, Artist Who Used His Body in His Art, Dies at 87

Lucas Samaras, an artist whose work in many mediums channeled alternate psychological states, has died at 87. His longtime gallery, Pace, which mounted 30 exhibitions of his work, said he died on Thursday. Since the 1960s, Samaras has been a beloved figure in New York for artworks that have never conformed to any specific movement. He produced unclassifiable sculptures, photographs, digital artworks, and more, and he always seemed to function along his own wavelength. “To a certain extent,” he once said, “I’m an outsider.” So disparate were his many bodies of work that he seemed to elude critics, even as they heaped praise upon them. “There appears to be not one Lucas Samaras, but several artists of that name,” remarked the New York Times’s Grace Glueck in 1996. Related Articles The sculptures that first brought Samaras fame during the ’60s took the form of ready-made objects that he augmented with pins, razors, and shards. The most famous of these are his “Boxes” of the early ’60s, a grouping of lidded containers that seem to beg …

I’m still reeling from Rishi Sunak’s shameless, dangerous speech | Caroline Lucas

I’m still reeling from Rishi Sunak’s shameless, dangerous speech | Caroline Lucas

“We must face down the extremists who would tear us apart,” Sunak declared to the country on Friday evening. And perhaps never were truer words spoken – at least not by this morally bankrupt prime minister, who is rapidly proving to be one of the most dangerously irresponsible leaders this country has ever faced. I am still in disbelief at the sheer chutzpah of Sunak wheeling out the No 10 lectern and calling on the whole nation to tune in to an emergency address. Because what came next was not the announcement of a major natural disaster or attack. It wasn’t, as we saw from other world leaders that day, a condemnation of open gunfire against starving people trying to reach aid trucks in Gaza, or a statement of solidarity with Russian protesters against Putin. It wasn’t even the calling of an election. Instead, what Britain got was a masterclass in gaslighting. Sunak’s performance made a new art form of rank hypocrisy, as he pretended not to know that the very extremism he criticised was …
