A couple of paintings in my sketchbook - the whole sketchbook is filled with trips to Anna Maria Island and nothing else - from 2014 to 2019.  Time to start another! When we arrived at the house we were renting, we unpacked and put things away, put away groceries, and then walked out to the canal and sat on the dock for a while.  For the first time ever, we saw 2 manatees swimming right by us!  It was great to see them.  But that was it for the trip, as we had a bit of a cold spell that chase...

The Quiet Death Of A Legendary Paris Bookstore (And The Rising Rents That Are To Blame)

Inside the last days of Le Pont Traversé – and the economics of a flashy Paris encroaching on the heart of the literary city. The shop is especially known for its poetry. “A few months ago, a gang of young women came in looking for female poets like Marceline Desbordes-Valmore and Yanette Delétang-Tardif—considerably lesser known than their male contemporaries, but now revived thanks to French bloggers writing on poetry ‘Their enthusiasm is extraordinary,’ marveled Josée. ‘I feel that when youn...

BWW Review: Donja R. Love's Absurdist Drama one in two Demands Attention For Black Gay Male HIV+ Realities

When you consider that the two best-known plays by American authors dealing with the AIDS epidemic, Larry Kramer's THE NORMAL HEART and Tony Kushner's ANGELS IN AMERICA, are both decades old and set in the 1980s, it's no wonder if playgoers tend to think of the crisis as something of the past which is now primarily under control. Even Matthew Lopez's current, THE INHERITANCE, though set in the 21st Century, focuses on the loss of gay men of that preceding generation. [Author: Michael Dale]

Which 2010s Shows Need a Revival in 2020s?

With the roaring twenties fast approaching, it's time to reflect on all the shows that made an impact on us over the last decade, and on what we would like to see on stage in the decade to come. The 2010s gave us some groundbreaking new shows - Hamilton, Hadestown, Waitress - incredible revivals - Oklahoma, The Color Purple, Pippin - and breakout stars - Ben Platt, Alex Brightman, Cynthia Erivo, just to name a few. So many shows that graced the stage in the 2010s made lasting impact on audiences...

How Are Two Small Canadian Films Making A Splash In Hollywood?

Partly it’s by letting Canada be Canada. “While movies and TV series are shot across the country, the Canadian locations rarely stand in for themselves. Toronto might be New York. Or Vancouver is meant to be L.A. It’s less common to have uniquely Canadian stories — and cities — stand on their own.” – CBC

Gediminas Pranckevičius

Gediminas Pranckevičius is a Lithuanian illustrator who works in the fields of advertising, book and album covers, gaming and children’s books. He has a jaunty,energetic style rendered with nice touches of lighting and texture. His website is divided into sections by project type. I particularly enjoy his the imaginary landscapes in his “Secret place” section. Pranckevičius has videos on YouTube and Vimeo, some of which show his process. He also has prints and other items avail...

Broadway Remembers Jerry Herman

Everyone from Harvey Fierstein to Chita Rivera has something to say about the man who deeply understood his craft. Betty Buckley, who played Dolly Levi in the 2018-19 national revival tour of Hello, Dolly!, said, “The lesson for me in doing the show — and I owe him a debt of appreciation — was that joy is a choice. It’s not something you wait to happen to you. You choose it, and you work really hard to sustain that commitment.” – The New York Times

The French Government Has Offered Concessions To The Paris Opera Dancers Who Have Been On Strike

The massive strike, in its 24th day and spread throughout the country, went viral last week when dancers and the orchestra performed selections from Swan Lake in front of the Paris Opèra. “The special retirement plan for the Paris Opera, which allows dancers to bow out at age 42, was introduced in 1698 by king Louis XIV — making it among the oldest in France.” – France24

Vampires Are ‘So Over’ Right Now, But Their Return May Be Imminent

They’re so early 2010s, basically. But culture is cyclical, or so it appears in tastemakers’ plans, and – according to a vampire literature scholar – “updated versions of these monsters cycle in when we don’t know how to confront something as a society or when we need to find a metaphor to help us understand a situation.” – HuffPost

A Powerful Professional Organization For Writers Seems To Be Imploding

Or is it self-immolating? In any case, when the RWA suspended writer Courtney Milan, who had spent years on its ethics committee and pushing for more inclusion and equity, for calling a book “a racist mess,” a boulder of anger, past racist treatment, secret committees, and a board exodus started rolling down the RWA’s hill of money and influence. Will the organization – 40 years old and at the forefront of a billion dollar industry – survive? (For more, here’s a complete timeline of what’s been...

Kelly Fraser, Singer Who Gained Fame For An Inuit-Language Cover Of A Rihanna Song, Has Died At 26

Fraser “wrote or translated songs into Inuktitut, an Inuit language, [and] a key aim was to ‘use pop music as a platform to strengthen her language,'” her producer said. “She also wanted to make the music as accessible to as many people as possible, he said, so she mixed English and Inuktitut in her recordings and blended traditional Inuit sounds and themes with contemporary pop.” – Seattle Times (AP)

Trump’s Trade War With China Is Harming American Authors

In a country not exactly known for the free flow of ideas, delays and freezes in publishing have changed what’s available in China. “Publishing industry insiders describe a near freeze of regulatory approvals, one that could make the publishing industry reluctant to buy the rights to sell American books in China.” That freeze may be thawing, or may not be – but in the meantime, U.S. authors and publishers have lost a major group of readers. – The New York Times

Distilling The Essence Of Princess Margaret

How Oxford – And JRR Tolkien, And CS Lewis – Turned English Curriculum To The Past And Kept English Fantasy There As Well

While Cambridge cut out its medieval requirement, Oxford – under the influence of Lewis and Tolkien – doubled down. That weirdly influenced the fantasy all over the English-speaking world. “At the moment that the British Empire is waning, you see this rise of children’s fantasy literature, which is set in these kinds of precolonial worlds, but also imagining these new vistas for exploration and the pleasures of exploration and colonization, encounters with indigenous peoples—but cloaked in a di...

Lee Mendelson, Producer Of The Charlie Brown Christmas Special, Has Died At 86

Of course he did many other things in a long life of TV producing – many of them Peanuts-focused – but “A Charlie Brown Christmas” was one of the first and biggest and certainly, along with his lyrics for “Christmas Time Is Here,” Mendelson’s most enduring contribution to Christmas in the United States. He died on Christmas Day. – Washington Post

What’s Disney’s Plan For ‘Star Wars’? Don’t Look To The Movies To Find Out

Look to streaming, of course, to lead the way. “Lucasfilm and Disney are now in a perfect spot: The Mandalorian is a success, Star Wars is ripe for more experimentation, and Disney+ is a new sandbox that will allow for similar experiments. The future of Star Wars won’t only live and die by big event films like The Rise of Skywalker; it’ll succeed with a consistent run of weird and fun Star Wars shows.” (And don’t forget the books, comics, games, ad infinitum.) – The Verge

Things Newspapers Will Teach You Regarding Web Design

It is extremely difficult to be a part of all the latest trends associated with web design. There is no denying the fact that web technology is improving constantly and developers have several ranges of features that they can use for their advantage. This is responsible for creating an innovative and forward-thinking space. However, web designers must understand that almost all art is known to have ancient masters. In the case of the websites, it is undoubtedly the newspapers. When you decide to...
