Tara's involvement with the Fae mafia has taken a deadly turn. To save her own life, she must steal a magical skull from the mafia's biggest rival. Professional thief and part-Fae Tara Knightley’s talent for sensing magical objects is the skill she’s been banking on for a decade. It’s also what got her entangled with notorious Fae mob boss Grant Shaw. Her relationship with Shaw is rapidly souring, and Tara needs to break free before it turns deadly. When she learns of a bounty for a mysterious magical skull, she knows it's her ticket to freedom. If she turns the skull over to the Fae mob, it could finally mean washing her hands of Grant Shaw forever. She must get her hands on that skull. But just as Tara is ready to go after the prize, her childhood best friend and crush, wolf shifter Judah McMahon, shows up asking for help. It’s been a decade since the falling out that ended their friendship, and Tara knows she shouldn’t get involved. But Judah’s life is threatened. How can she say no? The catch is, helping Judah will cost her the chance at freedom from the Fae mob . . . and possibly her life.

The Last Necromancer (The Ministry of Curiosities book 1) A waif, her kidnapper, and a twist you won't see coming.

The Wrong Girl (The 1st Freak House book 1) It's customary for Gothic novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic with a strange affliction, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head. Yet freedom is something she longs for.

Common ft. Jill Scott “Show Me That You Love,” Little Brother “Black Magic (Make It Better)” & More | Daily Visuals 8.23.19

Dilated Peoples and Little Brother Perform At S.O.B.'s

Even before Common became the example of how a man is supposed to go about life and the obstacles it brings, he was still dropping gems in his records about what it takes to face the trials and tribulations that we’re sure to go through as we grow. Needless to say he’s only gotten better at it throughout the years.

In his Jill Scott and Samora Pinderhighes assisted clip to “Show Me That You Love,” the Hip-Hop OG highlights the moments spent with his daughter (or lack thereof) and how it helped him take a more active role in her life. Lesson!

Keeping with the theme of Hip-Hop OG’s, Little Brother makes their long awaited return to the game and in their retro visual to “Black Magic (Make It Better)” take to Black Wall Street in Durham, NC to rock a crowd that’s been waiting for this vibe to groove to for years.

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Joell Ortiz, Trap Manny featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and more.

‘Descendants 3’ sees its musical magic starting to fade

The tragic death of Cameron Boyce cast an unexpected cloud over “Descendants 3,” the latest edition of the Disney Channel musicals built around the kids of Disney heroes and villains. The show goes on, yielding an at-best serviceable addition to a promising concept that’s beginning to feel worn and tired.

Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic

Meghan Ciana Doidge

Genre: Fantasy

Publish Date: June 18, 2013

Publisher: Old Man in the CrossWalk Productions

Seller: Meghan Ciana Doidge


If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept —  was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth. ———————————— This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.

When scavenger and thief Bree West is captured and handed over to a herd of unicorns, her only thought is escape. But the creatures are both terrible and ethereal, and being with them is a sweet ache. She begins to feel as though she is meant to be here.

Perhaps being with the unicorns is the first step to bringing freedom to the new world. Werewolf Jack Bastian serves as the witches’ weapon because he has no choice. Rakish and aloof, Jack has been having dreams about a girl and unicorns. He always wakes with a pang, sure the dreams mean something, but he can’t afford to let those feelings affect him. Jack survives by obeying his commands and not giving a damn who he hurts. When the high witch learns of Bree and her unicorns, she demands that Jack destroy her. He cannot disobey.

Everyone believes in carpe diem… don’t they? For flower shop clerk Lili Goodweather, that’s what life is all about–savoring the precious moments and all the beauty the world has to offer. So it breaks her heart when 12-year-old Erika Rutland can no longer see the magic in everyday moments. No, not everyone believes in carpe diem… or telepathic communication with animals. A firm believer in all things practical, widower Tanner Rutland doesn’t want his daughter’s mind filled with Lili’s fanciful tales—especially her claims that she can communicate with cats. And worse, that his daughter’s cat Fluffy has witnessed a murder. When Lili asks him to help search for the dead body that just absolutely has to be out in the redwoods—she claims—he’s forced to confront whether Lili is just plain crazy or her gift with animals is real. But after that first delicious kiss, he starts to think he’s the one who’s gone completely crazy. Because suddenly there’s something about Lili that Tanner just can’t resist. Can this single-minded widower give up everything he believes for a little touch of magic. From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author, “It Must Be Magic” is a stand-alone contemporary new adult romantic comedy/mystery/paranormal lite.

What if most modern diseases are really just symptoms of the same problem? The Magic Pill follows doctors, patients, scientists, chefs, farmers and journalists from around the globe who are combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating. And this simple change – embracing fat as our main fuel – is showing profound promise in improving the health of people, animals and the planet. Since the beginning of time mankind has depended on a diet consisting largely of plant based foods, fats and proteins with little to no carbohydrates, The relatively recent shift in traditional eating habits has caused a major decline in health globally. The Magic Pill investigates the stories of several patients, many of them sufferers of chronic and severe medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes and cancer, detailing their incredible recovery after switching to a low carbohydrate, high fat diet.

Amber Morgan is a rookie in The Elite, an organisation tasked with the elimination of rogue preternatural beings in King City. But she has a secret. She's a witch and only joined The Elite to settle a personal score. Her first case is supposed to be the routine investigation of a rogue vampire but it soon becomes clear that dark forces are at work, darker than anything the team has dealt with in the past. When an irritatingly sexy Hunter offers to help, Amber wants to say hell no! The last thing she needs is another distraction even if he is sin personified. But with the fate of a missing child at stake and a possible connection between the case and her past, how can she refuse?

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept —  was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth. ———————————— This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.

In a province where magic is forbidden and its possessors are murdered by the cruel Praetor, young Ilan, born with the powerful gift of her ancestors, has only one hope for survival. Concealment. In the shadow of Dimmingwood, she finds temporary protection with a band of forest brigands led by the infamous outlaw Rideon the Red Hand. But as Ilan matures, learns the skills of survival, and struggles to master the inherent magic of her dying race, danger is always close behind. When old enemies reappear and new friendships lead to betrayal, will her discovery of an enchanted bow prove to be Ilan’s final salvation or her ultimate downfall? * * * * * When I was small, my mother taught me about the magickless—evil men who hunted our kind to destroy us. They came from across the water to steal the lands of our ancestors. Pretending to want peace, they enslaved us and sought to extinguish what they couldn’t possess, the one thing their harsh laws could never control. Our ancient powers. One day, my mother warned me, violence would shatter the safety of our home, and when that day came, we must fight. And we must win.

Björk Talks Lost “Magic” Wu-Tang Clan Collaboration, Jay-Z & More

Björk has been in the game since the 1970’s and has just released her ninth studio album Utopia. In a recent interview with FACT, the Icelandic musician reveals how a lost collaboration with RZA and the Wu-Tang Clan was “magic” and also how she nearly worked with Jay-Z as well.

From FACT:

Homogenic recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Here’s something I’ve always wondered about that era in your career, as a big Wu-Tang fan: RZA is said to have recorded with you around that time, but the sessions never saw the light of day. What happened?

Ha! You know… I don’t know! I think what happened was… I wanted these kinda Icelandic, volcanic beats, and I was kind of struggling with it. I had done beats on my albums, but it takes me a long time to make them. And sometimes I get impatient and I want other people to do it, so I sit there and describe to them what I want them to do. So, I was in Spain, and Wu-Tang Clan were supposed to come to Spain. RZA was supposed to come. But then months passed. Then the album got finished and I delivered it. Then RZA was like, “I’m ready! Shall I come to Spain?”

Instead, I went to New York. We wrote a couple of songs together. And I just felt… sometimes when you do things and you don’t plan them it’s magic. And I really think what we made was magic. But I think because it wasn’t part of the whole Homogenic thing and it wasn’t part of what Wu-Tang were doing at the time, it was better as an idea, if that makes any sense?

In a later part of the interview, Björk adds that Jay-Z reached out to her to write for one of his songs but for reasons unspoken it never went down.

Egyptian Magic! 14 Ways to Channel Your Inner Cleopatra This Week

egyptian beauty

Today marks the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibition “Ancient Egypt Transformed: The Middle Kingdom,” which highlights the cultural and political renaissance that flourished in the civilization over the span of nearly 400 years. Among the pieces on display is a large-scale sculpture of Pharaoh Mentuhotep II, canopic jars used for mummification, and ornate royal jewelry inlaid with precious stones and coated in gold. Suddenly, all this gleaming excitement has us thinking: Why not bring a little Egyptian-inspired glamour to your everyday beauty routine?

Even more than 3,000 years later, a dash of bright gold—prized by the Egyptians as a divine and indestructible element and associated with the sun god Ra—still makes our hearts flutter. Just ask the gilded aficionado Pat McGrath, who adorned Parisians last week with her forthcoming 24-karat-inspired eyeshadow hue. We’re not suggesting you go full-scale Cleopatra, but a simple swipe of metallic eye gloss or a gold-handled makeup brush is enough to tap into the hue’s brilliant decorative effect.

If high-impact shine isn’t your thing, how about celebrating the ancient culture’s beauty rituals with an elongated swipe of kohl along the lashes instead? The inky black pigment creates a flattering frame to the eye that looks as inarguably cool now as it did then. Likewise, Christian Louboutin’s lapis blue nail polish—which conjures the color of the popular stone used in sacred amulets and scarabs—is fit for a modern queen.

From Spitfire Girl’s hieroglyphic-stamped perfume bottles to a gold-capped mask so rich Cleopatra might have kept it on her vanity, above are 14 ways to celebrate the arrival of Egypt by way of New York City.

The night Claire Tanith’s small village is attacked, her mother sends her alone into the cursed forest, the one she’d been forbidden to enter all her life with these mysterious words: ‘They will protect you.’ On the run from her attackers, she soon finds the forest is not as abandoned as she’d once thought. Beautiful and elegant, the elves seem to be everything the legends said they would be. But legends sometimes forget the true history of things and Claire’s eyes are soon opened to a world she never knew. One that has been kept from her for most of her life. All Claire wants to do is return home and start looking for her mother, the only family she ever had. But the elves have different plans. The mysterious mark that appeared on her arm isn’t a curse, at least not to them anyway, and before she knows it, she is whisked away on a mission she never agreed to, unless they help her in return. Now she is stuck on an adventure with the perverted elf, Aeron, and one with an attitude, Farron. But there is more to this adventure than she’d ever hoped for.

Hunting a serial killer in a paranormal dystopian world.… Abandoned at birth, Addison Kittner's been on her own since she was a kid–ever since the paranormal terrorists attacked cities around the world. Battling creatures that go bump in the night nearly destroyed human society. Good thing not all paranormals were evil and the terrorists were eventually stopped. Bad thing? Nothing would ever be the same again.  Now Addison makes her living as a private investigator and bounty hunter. One night she comes across a girl about to be killed by three rogue vampires. Addison kicks some vamp butt and saves the girl, but one of the vamps escapes. Just her luck, he turns up dead the next morning, inspiring the vampire leaders to put pressure on her to solve the case or take the rap. As if that wasn't bad enough, her ex-lover, werewolf FBI agent, Cooper Daine, approaches her and gives her an offer she can't refuse…a paycheck. Mixing business with lust is never a good idea, but neither is starving, so she accepts.  But as the body count builds, Addison finds herself embroiled in an ever deepening and dangerous mystery. One that leads her to something frighteningly personal. Her unknown heritage.  Interview with the Author Q – So, what makes the Shifty Magic series special? A – It's really a mix of a lot of things, but mostly I wanted to write stories that have the elements that I love to find when I sit down with a book. Mystery with some thriller and even mild horror elements, with a kick-butt heroine with a large dash of snark in her, a touch of romance with a guy that makes your heart beat a little faster, and a wild ride full of action and emotion from start to finish.  The Shifty Magic books are a great mix of these genres, set in a dystopian paranormal world to keep things interesting. Q – What order should I read the books in? A – You can pick up the series at any point, but because of the dystopian world and the different paranormal societies that I’ve created, I recommend readers start with Shifty Magic and read the books in order. The sequence is:  – Shifty Magic – Undercover Magic – Savage Magic (coming soon) Q – So, why should readers give these books a try? A – Because the Shifty Magic series is a fast, fun, thrill-ride that takes you on an emotional and action-packed journey that you won’t want to have end! Each of the books have hit a top ten bestsellers list for New Adult and College Fantasy and are rated highly by readers.  If you enjoy lightning-fast pacing with a plot that twists and surprises all the way to the end, you’ll enjoy this series.

Why Magic Johnson’s 55th Birthday Is A Huge Milestone For HIV/AIDS Awareness

Basketball legend and business mogul Magic Johnson turns 56 on Friday.

That may seem like a fairly innocuous milestone. But back in 1991, when Johnson, then 32, shocked the world and announced that he was HIV-positive, living through middle age seemed all but impossible.

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept —  was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth. ———————————— This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.

Podcast Review: Hello From The Magic Tavern

There are a number of podcasts that feature role playing games as they’re being played, such as Earwolf’s Nerd Poker, Penny Arcade, and Drunks & Dragons. Hello From The Magic Tavern touches on that genre, but the best way to describe the show is that it features characters from a D&D adventure…except they’re just hanging out. In a bar. Doing a podcast.

2015-07-10-1436569087-8791596-magictavern.jpeg
The setup is that the host, Arnie, is one of us. A regular guy. Who fell through a “magical dimension portal” behind a Chicago area Burger King into the land of Foon. To kill time until he can figure out how to get home, he lives in The Vermilion Minotaur, with a couple of whacked out co-hosts, Usidore and Chunt, who are on downtime between adventures. And, like most podcasts, they have guests.

This week it’s Otok Barleyfoot, the owner of the Minotaur, and Blemish, the creepiest waiter ever to get on mic — he even has the occasional cat crawl out of his mouth.

They’ve done a nice job with the setting – you can hear the ambient noise of what you’d imagine a medieval tavern might sound like — and the characters don’t really ever break…character. Which is totally unlike most of the fantasy gaming podcasts out there. It’s also pretty funny, particularly once you get to know the characters — it’s kind of like the TV show Cheers…except with dwarves, elves, and wizards.

Podcasts I’m also listening to this week: Welcome to Night Vale, Bonus Episode 4 – Pamela Winchell; and You Better DON’T!, Epi18: Do Dogs Only Love Us For Our Internal Organs?

Willow Rhoswen, owner of The Fated Cupcake and part-time vampire hunter for the Void is having a rough week. Four years after her twin brother’s mysterious death, Willow’s life is threatened and the director saddles her with a new partner—her ex-boyfriend, David. To her horror, he’s turned vamp, which causes her physical pain whenever she touches him… and any other specimen of the undead. In order to save Willow’s life, David agrees to turn double agent against the most powerful vampire organization in New Orleans. Or so he says. And she’s convinced they know something about her brother’s death. Unsure where David’s loyalties lie, she turns to Talisen, her childhood crush, to help her solve the mystery. Caught between two gorgeous men and a director who’ll stop at nothing to control Willow’s gifts, she’ll have to follow her instincts and learn who to trust.

Marc Chagall’s Wild Designs for Mozart’s The Magic Flute Are at the Fenimore Art Museum

Mozart's The Magic Flute

In 1967, when a new production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute opened at New York City’s Metropolitan Opera, the steady pulse of the opera world was sent racing. The costumes and sets had been reimagined by Marc Chagall, the then 79-year-old Belorussian artist responsible for painting the ceiling of the Paris Opera House, and for installing two gigantic murals alongside the Met’s grand staircase (the latter became famous again in 2009 when the cash-strapped opera house was forced to put them up as collateral against a loan).

Chagall’s production design, the subject of an exhibition this summer at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York, created plenty of buzz back then, not all good. “All I had heard around the Metropolitan in the weeks preceding the premiere boded ill for the multi-colored, fanciful, way-out sets and costumes,” wrote Speight Jenkins, Jr. for the Times Herald. “Every bad rumor was wrong. From beginning to end, the welter of color created the non-realistic landscape which is the domain of Zauberflöte.”

But that “welter of color” irked others. Chagall’s efforts, which included the design of 39 stage curtains and 121 costumes and masks, were met with mixed reviews, cranky opera critics haranguing the artist for, essentially, making Mozart all about Chagall.

“Until last night, everybody thought that either Andrew Wyeth at the Whitney Museum or Paul Klee at the Guggenheim had the biggest one-man show in town,” grumbled John Canaday in the New York Times. “But it turns out to be Marc Chagall at the Metropolitan Opera.” He added: “A lot depends on which you want more, Mozart or Chagall. This reporter has a greater weakness for Mozart, which made the evening extremely wearing for him.”

Alan Rich, writing for the World Journal Tribune, described a scene in which art-besotted operagoers burst into “wild applause” with “each new stage picture,” an experience that, no doubt, distracted from the music. “By the end of last evening, many members of the Metropolitan Opera House’s audience were convinced that Marc Chagall had not only designed the new production of The Magic Flute, but had also composed the music, written the libretto, sung the major roles, and conducted,” Rich lamented, then punctuated that flight of hyperbole with one last athletic eye roll: “If you admire Chagall’s art, a trip to the Met’s new Flute is at least as valid as a trip to the Museum of Modern Art. And, furthermore, you can divert your attention from it all (with a little effort, to be sure) and have Mozart’s incredible opera thrown in as a bonus.”

Despite initial backlash, Chagall’s production stayed in rotation until the 1981–82 season. In the decades since, other big-name artists have tried their hand at designing The Magic Flute, notably David Hockney for the Met and Maurice Sendak for the Houston Grand Opera (Sendak, wrote the New York Times Magazine, felt Chagall’s production lacked imagination, and that he had “merely imposed his shtetl symbolism on the opera.”) Since retirement, Chagall’s designs have, for the most part, been filed away in the Met’s dusty basement archives. But this summer, fans whose weakness for Marc rivals or outshines their weakness for Wolfgang, are in luck: The Fenimore Art Museum has unearthed several of the artist’s original costumes, along with masks and other production paraphernalia, and relocated the lot to Cooperstown for display through December.

“Chagall was a big music fan, Mozart in particular,” Chris Rossi, the exhibition’s curator, tells Vogue.com over the phone. “His ideas of perfection were the Bible and The Magic Flute. This must have been pure heaven for him.”

That sense of delight comes across loud and clear: The costumes, divorced from the operatic setting, are beautiful, appearing, as Rich wrote nearly 50 years ago, like “Chagall paintings wrapped around people.” Among those on display are the artist’s feathery take on the bird-catchers, Papagena and Papageno (“in amazingly good shape, considering it’s covered in feathers” notes Rossi); his dusty rose and violet gown for the princess Pamina; a set of sun and star-adorned robes in jewel-tone greens and blues for the fatherly Sarastro; a wildly painted cobalt and aubergine silk chiffon and linen gown for the Queen of the Night (“If I could wear any costume in the exhibit, I would wear this one,” says Rossi); and a gold-lamé jacket-and-pant ensemble for the flute-playing hero Tamino, punctuated by an orange tie-dyed silk sash.

“It looks to me like something that would have been influenced by the Beatles, by India,” Rossi speculates about Tamino’s flair. “It could be me reading into it, but it definitely looks like something of what was happening in the world was sneaking in.” A Chagall homage to the counterculture? “He was really hip,” laughs Rossi. “I’ll just say it. It’s amazing.”

For an even more modern take on Mozart’s 1791 opera, museum visitors can head over to the local Glimmerglass Festival, where a new, completely contemporary production of The Magic Flute, directed by Madeline Sayet, goes up on Friday, and runs through August 23. “We were interested in exploring contemporary people trying to find balance and wholeness in life, finding oneself in nature,” I am told by the production’s costume designer Kaye Voyce, most recently responsible for outfitting Ewan McGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal in last winter’s Broadway revival of Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing. “Even in their most extreme, the costumes are definitely clothing.”

Voyce plans to see the Chagall show, but has been too slammed to make it yet (“honestly, the legacy and history of this piece is incredibly daunting!” she admits). For her own take, she looked at a range of influences: everything from technical gear to hunter camouflage to traditional Native American garb to neoclassical dresses. Her Queen of the Night will wear a twenties Madeleine Vionnet–inspired beaded gown that “feels like a dress you could wear to a gala.” Pamina wears a sweater skirt from Brooks Brothers Black Fleece. Sarastro has a coat made out of a neoprene fabric that could be mistaken for Alexander Wang. “We tried to figure out what it would look like at some deep secret lab at Apple where everything new is created,” she explains.

But it’s the hunter gatherer Papagena, who visually steals the show, spending two scenes encased in full 3-D camouflage—the type of fake grass and leaf-adorned, Big Foot–resembling getup that you might find skulking next to a rack of shotguns at your local Cabela’s.

“It’s called a Ghillie suit,” Voyce explains excitedly about her own over-the-top moment. “In the opera she’s supposed to appear in disguise. We thought that’s perfect! It kind of makes you look like a monster, but it’s great.”

Hair Magic, Bottled: 8 After-Sun Products to Make Damage Disappear

Photographed by Mikael Jansson, Vogue, March 2014

The holiday weekend likely found you partaking in a variety of sun-drenched revelry. And while a pre-barbecue slathering of SPF cream may have kept skin hydrated, your hair is a different story. Sea-soaked, pool-dipped, generally exposed lengths are due for a bit of after-sun damage control—and the best restorative hair treatments this season start at the root.

Pre-rinse, reach for a softening scalp and hair oil like Phyto’s Huile D’Alès Hydrating Treatment, which, when left on for 30 minutes before washing, infuses hair with a blend of humidity-proofing castor, sage, lemon, rosemary, and juniper berry oils, or Rahua’s Hair Elixir, which transforms dry strands using a natural nut oil harvested in the Amazon rainforest and used for centuries by local women.

If build-up is the issue, O&M Original Detox Shampoo’s blend of cooling Australian river mint and peppermint oil removes chlorine—making the right conditioner that much more effective. Davines Su Hair Mask can be combed through for a day at the beach to minimize color fading and damage and used afterward to restore with antioxidant Vitamin C and shea butter. For good measure, try a lightweight tonic to smooth the cuticle, whether it’s Rodin by Recine’s addictive alchemic concoction of eight essential oils—apricot, calendula, sweet almond, sunflower, and neroli amongst them—or Fekkai’s Après Soleil Crème. Here, eight products designed to bring parched hair back to life, ensuring good memories and a healthy glow will be the only remnants of a long weekend spent sun-worshipping.
