CHICAGO – The Ford Mustang — an iconic American brand and a symbol of cool — will reach a major milestone Wednesday as the 10 millionth vehicle rolls off an assembly line at a Detroit-area plant. The car celebrated in American song and film, and recognized the world over as an iconic American cultural export, will get a big party at Ford’s Michigan headquarters. It’s a turning point for the carmaker, which is banking on the Mustang’s wide appeal to help it grow global market share. US sales of the Mustang are dropping, but they are accelerating overseas in markets such as China and Germany. To celebrate the Mustang milestone, Ford is appealing to the sense of nostalgia for what is seen as the original “freedom vehicle” that exemplified Americans’ love of the open road. After all, the car was named after a horse that roams free in the American West. “I can think of no other American car that captures the love affair with the automobile that Americans have had… like … [Read more...] about Ford Celebrates 10 Millionth Mustang at Ford’s Michigan Headquarters

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin "I'm not for everyone anymore," John Mellencamp says. At another point in our remarkable hour-long Zoom conversation, Mellencamp explains why. " I don't like to placate people." Like his friends and heroes Neil Young and Bob Dylan, as well as great artists such as Joni Mitchell and Miles Davis, Mellencamp is absolutely uncompromising and unyielding as an artist. Take his new album (out this Friday, January 21), Strictly A One-Eyed Jack . It is stark, gritty, raw, unflinching, elegiac, profound and brutally honest. In two of the tracks, Mellencamp confronts the dishonesty of the world. In "I Always Lie To Strangers," Mellencamp writes from the point of view of someone who admits their constant deceit, While "Lie To Me" is about how, as a society, we are so used to being lied to we accept that is just the way it is. So Strictly A One-Eyed Jack isn't for your average pop music fan in 2022. But for those willing to go on … [Read more...] about Sunday Conversation: John Mellencamp On Songwriting, Springsteen, And Why He Is ‘The Luckiest Man’
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin In a lot of ways, NFTs have represented an opportunity for artists to bypass traditional gatekeepers, allowing a more diverse range of artists to reach collectors and sell their work independently. However, a recent vote by Wikipedia editors introduced a new type of gatekeeping: the popular online encyclopedia has decided not to classify NFTs as art. Many creators and collectors of digital art found this decision to be overstepping and short-sighted. The basis for this sentiment is the observation that NFTs, while not always used for art, can be another artistic medium, like paint or ceramics. And even more than that, the idea that any person or institution would try to put rules on what is allowed to be deemed art feels problematic to many, with real implications on the lives of artists. The Definition of Art Art is a form of expression defined by the artist and appreciated by the beholder. As Oscar Wilde said in … [Read more...] about How Wikipedia’s Classification Of NFTs As ‘Not Art’ Impacts Equity In The Art World
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Two new reports have exposed how tech companies are "failing" to block organizations who offer the widely discredited and so-called LGBTQ "conversion therapy." The Global Project Against Hate and Extremism (GPAHE) also found the major 25 global players who offer the pseudoscientific practice are actually connected. The report has exposed how they are essentially composed of three major networks.
