Tweet on Twitter It might have taken the rest of the world a while to notice, but Brooklyn has long been a hotbed of culture. Filmmakers, writers, musicians, painters, playwrights, actors… many of them still make their homes in Brooklyn and contribute to a cultural scene that is vibrant and innovative and—at its best—reminds us why we love to live here.

This list is a celebration of those people, whose work guarantees that Brooklyn will never be just a punchline for a joke about artisanal cocktails or fancy pickles.

One of the family legends—a legend in my mind, at least—is about my mother being a child and going uptown with her own grandmother. Here I am a little over twenty years later, probably not dressed up at all. Possibly a sundress my mom made me on the sewing machine. Those mother-daughter sundresses are the only thing I remember her ever sewing.

Anyway, the fifties are over, and even the sixties, and here I am gloveless about to buy a Beatles record. Finally, after some consternation, I buy Let It Be.

On a cultural map, it can seem like a million miles. His latest vision, “Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam on Broadway,” has made that journey, landing like a meteor in the middle of a theater scene more known for “Cats” and cartoons than cutting edge.

While Broadway has seen other nontraditional offerings in recent years, from “Bring in da Noise, Bring in da Funk” and “Rent” to the dance-only “Contact,” “Def Poetry Jam” breaks new ground. Although the show, which opened last week to strong reviews, is little more than nine artists performing their poems on a minimally dressed set, the impact is powerful.

Participants tell their stories, using poetry to assault every issue from black teenagers on subways to Latina family roles to American wartime politics. Carefully mixed with the music of an onstage D.

Back in the day, I was generously sent a sample. I couldn’t understand how men could wear this proudly. It smelled like lipstick to me. Fast forward about 5 years later, and I randomly craved the Dior Homme Intense scent I wanted that lipstick smell. I think it was because literally nothing is like it and its one of those, ‘you want to smell every now and then, just because frags. I wore it for the first time and I was absolutely stunned.

I immediately found a bottle of DHI and bought it. I am so glad I did. Dior Homme was an eye opener. Why the hell didn’t I ever give this a chance? This stuff is the most classy scent I have ever worn.

To me, the name does the scent a huge disservice. Add that the main note detected in the dry-down is incense, and naturally we have a divisive fragrance. For this lover of drugstore oldies, I think it’s a cozy and elegant scent. This gem deserves a sultry name like Opium or Tabu! My skin seems to “eat” fragrance, so I do not experience the cloying sillage monster that others seem to get. I am in my 20s and do not think this scent is at all inappropriate for me.

This will certainly elicit a strong reaction in most people. Kudos to those who can wear it and appreciate it, it was definitely the dark mysterious sexy scent for the in charge woman back in the day.

I always wondered if my aunt ever tried Opium.
