Some Concerns I Have About Titanic 3D

I saw Titanic for the first time over Christmas break in sixth grade. I remember this, because that is the moment the Earth skidded to a grinding halt on its axis. The pinnacle of human creative potential had been reached. No film would ever need to be made again. Indeed, no art would ever need […]

How Your Boy Band Crush Secretly Determined Your Future

With the wave 90’s boy bands recently reuniting on stage, adult females are suddenly busting out faded concert t-shirts from the back of closets throughout America. 98 Degrees, New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys have all decided to pretend it’s 1998 again, and for someone that regularly jams to the “Ace of Base […]

Review: ‘Time Stands Still’ is worth your time, does not stand still

I have been sitting on my thoughts about Studio Theatre’s current mainstage production Time Stands Still for several days now. It may be because I have been distracted by a.) work I actually get paid to do, and b.) pug photos on the Internet, but I prefer to imagine that my delay is caused by […]

Award season is once again upon us, and thus my cold and somewhat callous heart could almost explode from the joy of watching film nerds rubbing elbows with Tilda Swinton, sparkly dresses, and an open bar all in one glorious evening. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. After all, it’s the only season […]

Review: ‘Ann’ is playful and fun, but lacks her trademark grit

As a post-thespian and lifelong theatre geek, I have seen my fair share of shows at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

A Broad of the Year Contest for ANN

The end of the year seems to be a time of hopeful list making on whatever new personalized stationary was thrust upon us during the Christmas season. Lists of resolutions we already know we won’t keep past that inevitably shameful bar crawl on St. Patrick’s Day. If you are of the intellectual sort you probably […]

How not to select a last-minute gift

Being in DC over the Christmas season can be psychologically deceptive. Sure, there are a few token holiday-themed activities for those who seek them out, but I am actually somewhat surprised by how un-Christmassy the city feels right now. I think that part of it is the fact that a massive portion of the city’s […]

Dawson’s Creek—Arguably the world’s most perfect holiday gift

Not to be all “poor me” but 2011 has been a terrible year for this particular blog writer. I know this might take some of you by surprise because I’m always so charming and witty in my blog posts…you’re welcome…but it’s not always sunshine and unicorns in my world (and if it was I’d be […]
