Since its release, \"Modern Love\" has received acclaim from music critics, who praised Bowie's songwriting, its production and its power as an opening track. In a positive review of Let's Dance at the time of its release, Ken Tucker of Rolling Stone wrote that the album as a whole was \"thin and niggling\", but enjoyed \"Modern Love\", \"Without You\" and \"Shake It\", calling them \"three pristine lovelies\". He continued:
This trio of songs offers some of the most daring songwriting of Bowie's career. The lyrics are so simple they risk simple-mindedness, yet I'd give a hundred 'Space Oddity's for the elegant cliché twisting at the climax of 'Modern Love': 'Modern love gets me to the church on time/Church-on-time terrifies me.' As a rock statement about growing up and facing commitments, that couplet beats the hell out of Jackson Browne.
Azusa Inamura is charming as Mika, we see two sides to her character as she portrays the carefree woman who is deeply in love with Teru, and also a jaded figure who pines for her lost partner. Takuro Takahashi is also likeable as Teru. Although he is largely there for Inamura to play off, he is given a few standout moments of reflection. The supporting cast give good performances, in particular Mika's extravagant gay co-worker, but often they are no more than a plot device.
The long-running feature in the New York Times, about all the kaleidoscopic ways love enters the human experience, is on its way to becoming an eight-part series from Amazon and executive producer John Carney.
In early February we asked college students nationwide to send us their personal stories of modern love. Five weeks later, nearly 2000 students from some 500 colleges and universities nationwide had answered our call. We are pleased to feature the writing of the winner and four finalists in the Modern Love column on the last Sunday of April and throughout May.
Leading off is our winning entry by Malcolm Conner, a junior at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. Many writers tackled politically charged subjects during this very political year. And Malcolm's essay did as well, exploring the complications and fears of a love between a transgender man and an immigrant Indian woman in Texas. Subjects tackled by other top finishers cover a broad range, from being gay in the Mormon church to playing the online dating game and from an Instagram-fueled identity to dealing with demisexuality.
Relationships are going through a complex cultural shift. Expectations on intimate partnerships are at an all-time high, yet we lack the tools and resources to reach this new Olympus. Join iconic couples therapist Esther Perel as she shines a light on the state of modern love, the importance of erotic intelligence, and how listening to the stories of others helps us navigate our own relationships.
Never have we invested more in love and never have we divorced or broken up more in the name of love. I imagine a world in which we can experience our relationships with a sense of vitality and aliveness and vibrancy.

For anyone who loves the 2013 sci-fi movie Coherence, this was giving me that while I was watching this, only that there were themes on love, grief and isolation. Strange but in a fascinating, you-wanna-dig-deeper type of way, especially the sci-fi aspects of it. Also, the actress who played Mika is a stunner.
The Times is inviting college students nationwide to open their hearts and laptops and write an essay that tells the truth about what love is like for them today. In previous contests, which attracted thousands of entries from students at hundreds of colleges and universities, the winning essays explored ambivalence about hooking up, the way technology is changing how we connect and how an aversion to labels can impact relationships.
This is not the first time a Modern Love project has enlisted big names: The podcast frequently features celebrities (including TV stars like Sandra Oh, Ellie Kemper and Giancarlo Esposito) who read real-life love stories that have appeared in the Times column.
Modern Love (or Love in the Age of Cold Intimacies) is as much about individuals as it is about the systems of control that bind us together. Equally, it is about new societal patterns, investigating the challenges and possibilities that the Internet and social media present. It recognises love as a potent emotional force and intense psychological bond between people that gives meaning to our lives in ways that no other interaction, object, or experience can.
If I can convey a message I have learned from this bestowal, it would be this: Talk with your mate, your children and other loved ones about what you want for them when you are gone. By doing this, you give them liberty to live a full life and eventually find meaning again. There will be so much pain, and they will think of you daily. But they will carry on and make a new future, knowing you gave them permission and even encouragement to do so.

The upcoming anthology series, which explores the trials and tribulations of love in today's society, has enlisted some major Hollywood heavyweights for the first season.

The streaming platform announced on Monday that its cast for the eight-part anthology series Modern Love includes a jaw-dropping who's who of stars. The series, based on the popular New York Times column and weekly podcast of the same name, will feature eight half-hour episodes exploring the complexities and vagaries of love in all its forms.
\"It's like I woke up in the actor candy store. We've managed to assemble a dream cast of my favorite actors. It's a testament to the reach of the original column and of how, now more than ever, love is the only certainty,\" said showrunner John Carney in a statement.
Such incidents, triumphantly recounted, can make it seem that, four subsequent decades of Cold War upheavals and conflicts notwithstanding, modernism and design had, in fact, delivered on its promise of a glorious, prosperous, and well-appointed postwar future for all. If only, right
Any fan of the restaurant would proclaim to you that every entree is delectable, but after my visit, I am intrigued by the idea of sitting at the bar, ordering 3-4 appetizers and munching the night away. In particular, I plan on ordering the Seitan Buffalo Wings, Brussels Aioli, and a chocolate malt because every one of these plates that walked by made me practically drool on the table. Isa knows how to find the right textures and flavors to replicate many traditional American dishes, and I hope more meat-lovers of Omaha will be willing to try something as enticing as her Seitan Beet Ruben.
The New York Times' \"Modern Love\" column is coming to the small screen with stars like Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel and Tina Fey. Amazon Studios announced the A-list cast on Monday. The anthology series, adapted from the \"Modern Love\" column and podcast, will consist of half-hour episodes about love in its many forms.
\"It's like I woke up in the actor candy store,\" he said. \"We've managed to assemble a dream cast of my favorite actors. It's a testament to the reach of the original column and of how, now more than ever, love is the only certainty.\"
Daniel Jones, who edits the \"Modern Love\" column, told \"CBS This Morning\" co-host Gayle King last February that when the column began, he and his colleagues \"didn't know what the parameters would be, but I came up with the name 'Modern Love' from the David Bowie song. I thought that would make it broad enough. ... We wanted it to be contemporary and I wanted to interpret love as broadly as possible.\"
When \"American Perspectives on Modernism\" opens Monday, the Windgate Gallery at the University of Arkansas-Pulaski Technical College in North Little Rock will become the latest Arkansas arts facility to showcase an exhibition of works by American modernist painters.
It is a philosophical movement that began in response to far-reaching transformations in Western society and culture during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Europe and America were experiencing rapid social change, industrialization and scientific advances. As things got more \"modern,\" new ideas were expressed in art, music, political life, science and literature that ran up against the Victorian way of thinking.
\"To me, modernism is the art people made when they were trying to cope with the modern world,\" says Ann Prentice Wagner, curator of drawings at the Arkansas Arts Center. She cu
