In the 1970s, you could buy a pet rock, or a lava lamp. People had even pawned the Brooklyn Bridge a few times.

But no one sold the ocean until Irv Teibel.

If you flip on a waterfall to fall asleep, if you keep rainymood.com in your bookmarks, if you associate well-being with the sound of streams and crickets or wonder why the beach never quite sounds as tranquil as you imagine, it's because of Teibel. New York's least likely media mogul was the mastermind behind Environments, a series of records he swore were "The Future of Music." From 1969 to 1979, he took the best parts of nature, turned them up to 11, engraved them on 12-inch records, and sold them back to us by the millions. He had a musician's ear, an artist's heart, and a salesman's tongue, and his work lives on in yoga studios, Skymall catalogs, and the sea-blue eyes of Brian Eno. If you haven't heard of him, it's only because he designed his own legacy to be invisible.

Travel writer Beckey writes about her love for the American city of Boston

Boston is my favourite American city. When I was lucky enough to travel around some of the most famous parts of America this summer, I expected New York or San Francisco to be at the top of the list, hands down. Although these cities were undoubtedly incredible, there's just something about Boston that made it deserve the top spot.

As they sing, dance, and cast spells on stage, men?some in drag?fight for their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the Hasty Pudding Theatricals' 168th annual production. Running nearly every night from Feb. 6 through Mar. 6 at Farkas Hall, "That 1770s Show" is a musical set in an alternate version of 1775 Boston. A phenomenal performance overall, "That 1770s Show" excels in all fields thanks to talented actors, exceptional stage direction, and a hilarious script that connects colonial strife of the 1770s to the modern day.

10 records found.
