The Illustrated Version of “Alice’s Restaurant”: Watch Arlo Guthrie’s Thanksgiving Counterculture Classic

Alice’s Restaurant. It’s now a Thanksgiving classic, and something of a tradition around here. Recorded in 1967, the 18+ minute counterculture song recounts Arlo Guthrie’s real encounter with the law, starting on Thanksgiving Day 1965. As the long song unfolds, we hear all about how a hippie-bating police officer, by the name of William “Obie” Obanhein, arrested Arlo for littering. (Cultural footnote: Obie previously posed for several Norman Rockwell paintings, including the well-known p...

Comics in National Building Museum's CANstruction competition

 by Bruce Guthrie I spent much of Sunday at the National Building Museum watching the CANstruction event. As the sponsoring group AIA | DC (the Washington Architectural Foundation) explains it: Canstruction is a nationwide program that aims to raise awareness about hunger. In DC, Canstruction is organized by the Washington Architectural Foundation as a creative design-build competition that benefits the Capital Area Food Bank through donations of canned goods. Teams from architecture and ...

Blood House – review

Director: Tony Manders Release date: 2021 Contains spoilers It is a shame that Blood House, a microbudget film, works poorly because we don’t get many vampiric building films and I really wanted it to work – even at a budget level. Unfortunately, as we’ll see, it is an overly long film that really does outstay its welcome. I need to add also that I don’t think revealing the house as vampiric is too much of a spoiler as the trailer actually states it will “feed off your fears… your pain… your b...

Everything We Know About The Live-Action Snow White Remake So Far

For over 25 years now, Disney has been steadily churning out live-action remakes of its classic back catalog, with patchy and often dispiriting results. I'm going to come right out and say it — I have hated every single one I've seen so far. It's not in some bitter "Disney ate my childhood" kind of way, because I wasn't a huge fan of Disney movies even as a kid, apart from "Pinocchio" and "Aladdin." It's because they're all so flat and soulless, and no amount of expensive CG can replicate the im...

Eyes Wide Shut Ending Explained: No Dream Is Ever Just A Dream

Stanley Kubrick's final film "Eyes Wide Shut" is loosely based on Arthur Schnitzler's novella "Traumnovelle (Dream Story)," and transfers the action from 1900s Vienna to the late 1990s in Greenwich Village. Kubrick was notorious for his grueling shooting schedule and the psychological games he played on actors in order to get out their best performances. According to Vanity Fair, Kubrick's "theory was that once his actors bottomed out in exhaustion and forgot about the cameras, they could rebuil...

Psychedelic Alice in Wonderland Remix 'Wonderland Recoil' Trailer

"How did I get here?" "Just retrace your steps, it's what I do when I'm lost…" An early promo trailer has debuted for a peculiar genre mash-up film titled Wonderland Recoil, made by Danish filmmaker Shaun Rana. The film is premiering in December this year at the Psychedelic and Film and Music Festival in New York. Rana describes the film as "a futuristic & surreal take on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland - with a genre mix of sci-fi / cyberpunk & fantasy." Heavily influenced by John Carpe...

The 13 Best Exorcism Horror Movies

Exorcism horror movies have bewitched the public consciousness ever since the release of William Friedkin's "The Exorcist" in 1973. The colloquial Old Scratch remains an enduring horror protagonist, a reach that extends even further on account of his legion of similarly evil foes: Bathsheba in "The Conjuring" and Paimon in "Hereditary," for instance, both of whom are in league with the Devil ... and remain no less determined to create Hell on earth.The remedy for a demonic presence, both cinemat...

Ich nahm die Pille gegen Regelschmerzen & wurde davon suizidal

Triggerwarnung: In diesem Artikel geht es unter anderem um Depression und Suizidgedanken. Das erste Mal, als Mariam*, 29, mit 16 die Anti-Baby-Pille verschrieben bekam, sollte sie ihr bei ihrer schmerzhaften, schweren Periode helfen. Und obwohl die Pille diese Beschwerden linderte (sie bekam einfach gar keine Tage mehr und litt demnach auch nicht mehr unter Schmerzen), waren ihre Auswirkungen auf Mariams geistige Gesundheit überwältigend. Mariam entwickelte Panikattacken, die sie über drei Mo...

The Principles of Team Success, Part 1: Purpose

The longer I am in the real estate business, the more I am convinced that teams are the future of real estate. We know the benefits of a successful team model: greater stability and success year over year, improved work-life balance, and a more satisfactory client experience. But getting a team off the ground is a process most agents aren’t prepared for. That’s why it’s critical that new teams have proven principles of success to guide them forward. This short series is going to address the key ...

The Best Keira Knightley Movies Ranked

Keira Knightley is the queen of the past — she is probably the one name most associated with period films over the last 20 years. In fact, it's easy to forget that Knightley is only 36, as she has both been acting for so long and also played brides in two movies ("Love Actually" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl") while still aged just 17. While historical films, especially romantic ones, are very much Knightley's specialty, she has broken out into contemporary-set film...

22 Mysteries, Thrillers, & Suspense Novels for July

July is a good month for fans of suspense, with the publication of all kinds of genre books from dark psychological thrillers to fun cozy mysteries. The titles listed here are just a handful that caught my attention. I find it hard to resist a good crime novel, and it was difficult to limit this post to just 22. Note that I have read only a few of these books, and most of the short descriptions have been taken from the publishers’ summaries. Audiobook information is provided when available. Tha...

Every A Nightmare On Elm Street Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Ranking franchise films is a challenging task because it forces you to consider different permutations of the same premise, spread out across time, with different actors and directors. "A Nightmare on Elm Street" is my favorite of the big three horror franchises (sorry, Jason and Michael), and while each film brings something unique to the table, not all of these entries are created equal.It's impossible to discount the contributions of legendary film writer and director Wes Craven, who stepped ...

How to Help Students Be the Best Version of Themselves

There’s a lot of talk about how living in challenging times can help students develop resilience. But sometimes adults forget that it’s not just facing adversity that builds resilience—it’s facing adversity with support. According to Harvard’s Center for the Developing Child, “The single most common factor for children who develop resilience is at least one stable and committed relationship with a supportive parent, caregiver, or other adult.” Educators can be that “other adult.” The question ...

Gardens of Tohono Chul Park, Tucson

My Tucson sojourn took in terrific meals at restaurants like Cafe Poca Cosa and Feast. There were wonderful hikes in sublime desert settings,  and gardens, of course! My timing was perfect to catch full bloom on the ornamental, evergreen trees, Sophora (aka Calia) secundiflora, at Tohono Chul Park located on the city's Northwest side on Paseo del Norte. Common names for the showy beauty in the photo include Mescal bean, not to be confused with the Agave used to make mezcal.  Another monik...

Gardone, Italy - André Heller Botanic Garden

Hibiscus Sugar Tip .. One Sweet Shrub!

I've always been dotty about variegated foliage. Combine splashed leaves with a flower that's so alluring and it's difficult to imagine one lovelier. I'm over the moon about this stand-out shrub in Alice's Garden. Hibiscus 'Sugar Tip' offers a delicate white tracery on its leaves, while the petite blooms with their colorful centers are sweet additions to flower arrangements. The double frilly flowers are subtle, about 1 and 1/2 inches wide with an eye-catching vermillion center.  It'...

The Best Netflix Original Horror Movies Of 2021 (So Far)

Netflix has an extensive lineup of movies and TV shows, but head to the site for some creepy content and you'll find the offerings slim. Those looking for a wide variety of spooky classics will be dismayed to go to the horror section, sort by year released, and only find the catalogue to go back as far as 1990's "The Exorcist III" (which is nonetheless outstanding, go watch it). Where the streaming service shines is in its original content, bringing fresh films from a variety of storytellers aro...
