Ah, Facebook: The Online Community... PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mark Castellano   

Ah, Facebook: the online community where colleagues, friends, long-lost acquaintances, friends of friends or long-lost acquaintances, and perfect strangers find and "friend" each other based on their real or perceived affinity.

Once "friended", you then have access to each other's web pages, and consequently to each other's lives, quirks, photos, jottings, oversharings, and mental disorders, as well as to those of the ever-expanding universe of their friends' circles, thus increasing the likelihood that you will either embarrass yourself or be embarrassed by someone whose life would never otherwise intersect with yours.

Waiting, dreaming PDF Print E-mail
Written by Donald Asher   
So, it's been a couple of weeks since I sent material to the casting folks of the TV series Criminal Minds. Haven't heard anything...yet.

That's not unusual. The entertainment industry works on its own schedule, and that's okay. Aspiring actors should never, ever set expectations --other than ones of rejection.

My philosophy is I try to start with rejection, and if something positive happens -- like a call from my agent -- then that's a small first step.

And I have realized that things happen when you least expect them...not just this business, but life in general.

Fans Honor Kurt Cobain’s 44th Birthday Through Song PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dannielle Davis   

In what would have been his 44th birthday on February 20, fans around the World are continuing to celebrate Nirvana front-man Kurt Cobain’s life through his music and lyrics.

16 years after his death, musicians and fans continue to show deep admiration for the Guitarist’s in-depth lyrics and emotionally-charged vocals contained with each song including the tracks “Polly” and “Smells like Teen Spirit.” In the Live!Tonight!Sold Out! Video album, containing footage from Nirvana in the early 90’s, Cobain stated, “…I just think that lyrics that are different and weird and spacey paint a nice picture. It’s just the way I like art.”

Cobain’s vivid descriptions were particularly evident in the lyrics contained in Nirvana’s track for “Polly”. The song’s lyrics detail the true story of a girl who is continuously tormented and sexually abused by her captors, only to free herself from the horror.

Few plays have said it more poignantly than Lt. Weinberg’s dialogue in A Few Good Men, now showing through Feb. 27 and again March 4-6, at the Public Theatre on Center Street, presented by the Community Theatre of Little Rock.

“They beat up on a weakling, and that’s all they did. The rest is just smokefilled coffee-house crap. They tortured and tormented a weaker kid. They didn’t like him. So, they killed him. And why? Because he couldn’t run very fast.”

A Few Good Men is about the kind of bullying that takes place at work. In this play, it happens in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“Bullying should never be an accepted practice,” Frank Butler, Director, said. “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
