Thrills! Chills! Dramatic Eye Makeup!

I was hoping to have this up sooner, but you know how life catches up with you. Good news is that at the closing of this year I’ll have my BA. Along with all the holiday stuff,and here I am to discuss a fantastic non-holiday film that’s screening this Saturday, the 17th. The screening is at 7PM and there’s no admission. Just stop by and have a good time! The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a quintessential German Expressionist film. The other one of course being Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. Many aesthetic elements of Caligari...

A Grave Issue Indeed

As an establishment that works to have an online presence, this is unsettling. The infrastructure of the internet is currently under threat thanks to the MPAA and similar industries with the Protect IP Act (PIPA) and Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) Anti-copyright bills that if enacted would do more than prevent infringements, they could censor the whole internet.  The issue is not the protection of copyright, but the fact that these bills promote censorship. If passed many of the sites we use every day could be taken down and/or blocked from...

Poetry is an art meant to be heard.  If you ever, ever have the opportunity to catch any sort of live show please do! On the 10th I had the opportunity to attend two shows presented by the Adirondack Center for Writing, a wonderful organization that has been bringing up Brooklyn-based poets for the past few years.  For those who don’t know, the poetry scene in New York City as a whole is awesome! If you’re ever in NYC, check out one of the multitudes of shows that happen daily! The first show was at NCCC, featuring poets Jon...

Production Review: Agnes of God

This past summer I was seeing posters for productions of the drama Agnes of God, which from what I heard, was a fantastic show. On many of those occasions I was out of luck in terms of seeing it (the show was out of town, I was stuck working that night, had other obligations). Fortunately, my luck changed. Oct. 27 I attended a stunning performance of John Pielmeier’s drama Agnes of God presented by Between A&B Productions and directed by Bonnie Brewer. All I can really say is, “Wow!” The show is very intense and I applaud...

Comic Con 2011 We Were There!

What better way to christen this blog than to report on adventures at one of America’s biggest pop-culture carnivals!  As a first-timer it’s taken a while to digest all the awesomeness that is Comic Con, and we were only there one day. We (Myself, Vicki Celeste and her sons Logan and Hunter) arrived in NYC on Thursday evening, passing by Keith Haring’s Crack Is Wack mural as we entered Manhattan through Harlem. Upon arrival and settlement we took the obligatory trip to Times Square to witness the hustle and bustle the city...
