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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Road Trip: Apples and Vines in Virginia

My general stance on the great outdoors is that nature is a problem that mankind solved by making cities. I don’t like itchy leaves, practical clothing, or insects that feed on human blood. I’ve never been camping, although it strikes me as oddly regressive to retreat into the woods and pretend that we don’t have […]

Compiling a DC dream meal

Like Lindsay, I attended the Groupon-sponsored Taste of DC over the weekend. I actually had a good time. This was more a result of the good weather and friends than the long lines and unfortunate booze cage. By fencing the alcohol-sipping rabble-rousers into a their own separate section away from the general public, Groupon probably […]

Confessions of a Broke DC Girl Trying to Get Her Hair Done

Due to several terrifying and interconnected factors (an empty wallet, unemployment, and some newly dead dreams) the situation on top of my head was rapidly getting out of control. I was beginning to look like a method actress preparing for the lead role in the Anna Nicole Smith story. Minus the rich husband and stint […]

A Texan’s thoughts on the Beltway

The thing about Texas is that you will never forget for one moment that you are in Texas. While other states seem okay with drifting by unmarked, Texas is bold and in your face. If there is a flag pole–the Texas flag will be flying, if there is a bald head–a Dallas Cowboys hat will […]

Movie Magic: A Love Story

My love for movies started long ago, and love means never having to say you’re sorry.* It doesn’t matter if the movie is highbrow or lowbrow to me…I can quote Wayne’s World as seriously as any Stanley Kubrick.  And with much more heightened glee. I’ve spent much of my life angling to try to make […]

I.U.Delightful

Some trends, like the swoop bangs and skinny jeans look, can be easily spotted while out in a crowd. But others, such as risqué piercings and/or tattoos aren’t so easy to recognize. The newest covert trend amongst young DC women: the IUD or Intrauterine Device. Author’s Note: Dear Dad, Thank you for recently subscribing to […]

Columbia Heights Greatest Hits

As of August 2, the Broads of the Beltway will be neighbors – I am moving into a charming little nook on 1st and R, a loogie’s range from my beloved Big Bear Café. Since I pop over to Chicago for several days beginning tomorrow, tonight is my penultimate evening in Columbia Heights.  I’m swapping […]
