a dilemma dylanesque

NOW HERE IS THE RUB. THE NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE has been knock, knock, knockin’ on Dylan’s door to try and get him to accept an award that one half of the world views as a spectacularly standout moment in popular music. The other half which, incidentally, also includes Leonard Cohen, feels the Nobel is just about as relevant as pinning a “medal on Mount Everest for being the highest mountain.” Regardless of which side of the argument you nod sagely to, or even if you happen to be sitting on the fence, the one thing that is completely clear is that winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, an absolute first, by the way, has not been reason enough to coax Bob Dylan out of his famed reticence. The singer-songwriter played a gig…

supreme single malts

This June, Macallan released one of the oldest bottles of single-malt whisky ever to leave its distillery, a crowning achievement 65 years in the making. At $35,000, it will also cost you a nice chunk of your retirement fund, assuming you can even get your hands on one. The Macallan 65 Year Old was released in just 450 numbered decanters, handcrafted by Lalique, the final instalment in a six-part series of special bottlings that have demonstrated the legendary distillery’s unparalleled achievements in spirit making. It’s among the most mature sherry cask aged single malts ever sold, and the taste of a precious few drops delivers deep, rich character and unforgettably intense flavours. You’ve likely never tasted anything this old, and you’re not alone. There’s a reason you don’t see a lot…

private gambling

EVER WONDER HOW TO GET ALL THOSE COMPS YOU HEAR ABOUT in Vegas—the private jets, the big-fight tickets, the bottle service at clubs whose lines part like the Red Sea for Moses? Steve Cyr, the notorious freelance gaming host turned VP of player development at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, can tell you. It’s simple: “Play like Larry Flynt.” Cyr’s ideal customer would be one who’s addicted to the thrill of gambling, or at least has enough money to treat mind-blowing amounts of money as recreational losses. Among his current estimated 70 high rollers (those who will play with a weekend minimum of $1,00,000) and 20 whales (between $5,00,000 and $3 million) are “Larry, a couple of generals from outside the United States, and dot-commers.” To those who love…

dictator of decorum

BADGES? WE DON’T NEED NO STINKING badges! Yeah, we follow the rules, but we make the rules up as we go along. We rule the rules. A lot of guys think there is a sort of Ten Commandments of how to dress and behave. And there was, sort of, until somebody smashed them to bits like Moses did with the tablets of the law. Maybe the Men Commandments were smashed by Elvis. Others might say Oscar Wilde, Frank Sinatra, James Dean, Mick Jagger. But the point is that the laws of dress and behaviour are evolutionary. We have to adapt or reinvent them now and then according to prevailing conditions. It used to be said that gentlemen did not wear white until after Easter and then not after Labor Day. But after…

true west

ANTOINE FUQUA ISN’T AFRAID OF A LITTLE GOOD OLD-FASHIONED CLOSE combat. Between Training Day, the now classic L.A. crime drama that earned Denzel Washington an Academy Award, and last year’s boxing thriller Southpaw with Jake Gyllenhaal, the veteran director has seen more blood, sweat, tears, gunshots and pyrotechnics than most paramedics. After getting his start directing music videos for Coolio, Stevie Wonder and Prince in the 1990s, Fuqua has since worked with everyone from Chow Yun-Fat (The Replacement Killers) and Bruce Willis (Tears of the Sun) to Danny Glover (Shooter) and Morgan Freeman (Olympus Has Fallen). The filmmaker joined forces with Washington again for 2014’s underrated revenge fantasy The Equalizer. They teamed up once more in Fuqua’s most high-wattage project yet, The Magnificent Seven, a 21st-century western with gold-rush pathos.…
