The Early 1900’s in Color

I found this post just recently. My love of history is overwhelming but as I told a friend today, I always had an issue picturing the past in color. With all the images being in black and white, my young brain couldn’t fill in the colors. Well dear French-Jewish capitalist Albert Khan did that for me! He set out to capture images of the world. Ending up in 1929, at the time of the stock market crash with 180,000 meters of black and white film and 72,000 autochrome plates of color pictures......

Feeling Financially Nauseous

I just had to spend a lot of money… a lot of money I don’t totally have right now. I just bought my plane ticket to Israel. All $1400 of it. I feel like for $1400, I should get a sleeping pod with my own television and a maid… That was a lot of money. Add into that, that I am leaving my job to pursue more education overseas and well, I am having financial nausea. But there is a bright side here… I have found that my community, the people I......

So. Excited. Mad Men, Season 4 starts Sunday!

I just can’t wait. I love the time period. I love the clothes. I love the ad agency. I love it all! I am a total Maddict! AdAge had a great article about the new season. A nice little preview that does NOTHING to satiate my curiosity, intentionally. Which just makes me more curious. AHH! Read it here – ‘Mad Men’ Returns, Smoke Clears, and Things Still Aren’t What They Seem (Maybe) He has some seriously astute comments about the deconstruction at the end of season 3 and the reconstruction that may......

How do you Jew? What is your #ish?

In my family, we like to play with words. My dad is the undefeated MASTER of this. Alliteration, puns, obscure words, rhetorical fun, but of late, his favorite is to turn nouns into verbs. How do you Jew? How are you Jewing? Just Jew it! The Jewish Federation, nationwide, has started a campaign to ask: “What is your #ish?” Essentially, how are you Jewing in your life? What make you Jew#ish? So? What makes you Jew#ish? Tell me and tweet it with the hastag #ish or go to the Federation website and......

The Saddest Day in Jewish History

Today marks the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. It is Tisha B’Av. Tisha B’Av means literally, the 9th (tisha) day of the month of Av. There were many tragedies that happened on this day in Jewish history and commemorate them and remember the sadness, today is a fasting day. We began fasting last night around 8:20 (well, that is Denver time) and the fast will end 25 hours later at 9pm (again, Denver time). The fast of Tisha B’Av commemorates 5 tragedies that befell the Jewish people on that date: Moses......

Hi. My name is Talia. And I have road rage.

Seriously. It’s bad. I get very angry when people go way too slow in the left lane or cut people off to get in the far left lane for no reason or when people make stupid choices that risk other people’s lives. All valid concerns… not worth rage though. Today, driving into work, the traffic was gross. There was a 5 car pile up and it was nasty. I was trying to merge from the HOV/toll lane onto the highway and get to the right because the accident was in the left......
