September Entertainment Hit List

It’s that time of the month where I list the things in September that I’m looking forward to in Boston and the entertainment community at-large. Without further ado… 1. Start of Fall Television — I’m not going to say much about this because I plan on doing a follow-up list about which ten shows I’m […]

‘Porgy And Bess’ At ART In Cambridge

It’s rare that we get Broadway-caliber theater performances in Boston. There’s been a lot of excitement around the launch of Diane Paulus‘ re-interpretation (or revisal, whatever you want to name it) of “Porgy and Bess,” one of the very first American musicals ever written. I got to see the production last night in Cambridge at […]

Role/Reboot Take 2!

My second piece for gender website Role/Reboot is up now on the homepage. I wrote about the importance of a movie like “The Help” in today’s film climate, especially with the onslaught of criticism the film is receiving about racist portrayals of black maids in the 1950s. Check it out, and let me know what […]

Love Lady Gaga’s New ‘You And I’ Music Video

I’ve been in Arizona for a couple of days, getting my relaxation on at Canyon Ranch with my mother, so the blog has been neglected. But, I saw Lady Gaga‘s new music video today for “You and I,” her new single, and wanted to share how much I love it with my readers. It’s beautiful. […]

‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Top 10 Performances

I’ve watched “So You Think You Can Dance” for quite a while now, and though it isn’t exactly quality television, it is one of two reality shows that I actually follow. I haven’t been the biggest fan of this season, because there’s been a couple of instances where the judges got rid of dancers they […]

Blogging for Role/Reboot

I recently started contributing to a gender issues blog called Role/Reboot. I first heard about it while I was still at Tufts, and they’re putting up some pretty cool content about gender and how we think about it today. They’re just getting their original content up and running, but I’ll be contributing to that with […]

Art of the Novella Challenge: Part 1

I started the Art of the Novella challenge this past Monday, and this will be my first update. I must say though that I’m greatly enjoying the commentary over at NonSuch Book. I’m finding everything I’ve chosen so far to be incredibly challenging, because they’re written by the greats. I should also say that I’ve […]

What’s With All The Hatred For ‘True Blood?’

I’ve been watching HBO‘s “True Blood” since the beginning when it aired when it first aired in 2008. It was lauded for being unique, original, visceral and sexy, and Alan Ball’s success of a show came at the peak of the public’s fascination with all things supernatural, but especially vampires. Flash forward to a show […]

‘Another Earth’ and ‘Tree of Life’ Comparison

A couple of nights ago I had the pleasure of seeing Mike Cahill‘s “Another Earth” at the Kendall Square Cinema for the second time after seeing at the Independent Film Festival of Boston in April. Before seeing it a second time, it was my favorite movie so far this year, and now it’s only in […]

August Entertainment Hit List

A feature that I’ve been planning for a while is one in which every month I preview what’s coming up in entertainment that I’m excited for. It could be things that everyone has access to, or it could be events that are happening here in Boston. Summer is winding down, but there’s still plenty to […]
