DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY: 2 PART MASTERPIECE MYSTERY DEBUTS SUNDAY!




It is the eve of the Darcys' annual ball at their magnificent Pemberley estate. Darcy and Elizabeth, now six years married, are relaxing with their guests after supper when the festivities are brought to an abrupt halt.



A scream calls them to the window and a hysterical Lydia Wickham tumbles out of a carriage shrieking, "Murder!" What follows is the somber discovery of a dead man in Pemberley woods, a brother accused of murder, and the beginning of a nightmare that will threaten to engulf Pemberley and all the Darcys hold dear.



Adapted from P.D. James' clever whodunit, this delicious homage to Jane Austen's beloved Pride and Prejudice stars Anna Maxwell Martin (Bleak House), Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Matthew Goode (The Good Wife), and Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who). Elizabeth and Darcy never knew marriage would be like this!

Lucca took a no-nonsense approach in the studio while recording his 8th studio album. Favoring guitars and acoustic drums over synths or electronic beats, the resulting sound is reminiscent of Kings of Leon or early Maroon 5 - organic, driving, and genuine. 

In his own words, “We went in with the intention of making a record that was as live-sounding as possible. I wanted to close my eyes and be able to visualize the players in the room or up on the stage, actually playing the songs together. One guitar over here, the other guy over there, bass, drums, some keys? I mean, that’s the rock-n-roll I fell in love with when I was a kid.”

THE KING OF WANDS: NEW OPPORTUNITY

http://www.albideuter.de/html/golden_klimt_35.html

The King of Wands card suggests that my power today lies in personal power. I inspire transformation, respect and support by discrete but charismatic example and tolerance. I am an instrument for dynamic, responsible, or passionate expansion that serves or protects the greater good of my legacy. I am a master of the universe and I am empowered with a reputation of experience, credibility and momentum and I transform through integrity.

The King of Wands is an indication that you are someone who is very visionary and goal-oriented. You achieve a lot because you are very clear about your future direction and how you will get there. You do not waste your time on activities or relationships that you believe will lead no-where. You never just go with the flow, instead you prefer to embark on a strong and direct course of action.

The appearance of the King of Wands also suggests that an opportunity is presenting itself to you, and you now have the power to accept the opportunity and take on the challenge. You are the determining factor in this situation, and circumstances will navigate in the direction you steer them. Indecision or doubt will not be appropriate responses when clarity and confidence are required. However, as you progress in this new role, it will begin to feel more comfortable.

DESIGN LEGEND OSCAR DE LA RENTA HAS DIED AT 82


Oscar de la Renta, a fashion designer whose gowns have been a staple at red-carpet events, died Monday at 82, a spokesman for his wife confirmed.

Óscar Arístides de la Renta Fiallo (July 22, 1932 – October 20, 2014) was a Dominican American fashion designer. Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, De la Renta was trained by Cristóbal Balenciaga and Antonio del Castillo, he became internationally known in the 1960s as one of the couturiers to dress Jacqueline Kennedy.

 
An award-winning designer, he worked for Lanvin and Balmain; his eponymous fashion house continues to dress leading figures, from film stars to royalty, into the 2010s. De la Renta is particularly known for his red carpet gowns and evening wear.


Nearly every first lady in modern history, including Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan, Laura Bush, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Michelle Obama have worn his designs. Vogue Editor Anna Wintour was also a big proponent of his designs, which she wears often. READ MORE
