5 Key Things You Need to Consider Before Starting an LLC

An LLC is a type of business structure with the liability-protection perks of a corporation and the flexibility and tax benefits of a partnership. When you form an LLC, you’re taking responsibility for the profits and losses of your company while also shielding your personal assets. LLC owners are known as members and there can be as few as one member (a single-member LLC) to numerous members. Whether you want to launch an IT firm, marketing agency, restaurant chain, or fitness center, an LLC...

Mars Hill Church and The Trinity Church: Is Past Prologue?

In August 2014, 21 former elders from Mars Hill Church brought formal charges under the bylaws of the church against Mark Driscoll. Recently, I have been listening to people talk about their experiences at The Trinity Church in Phoenix. To quote Yogi Berra, it feels like deja vu all over again. For those who complain that I am unnecessarily bringing up the past, I will reply with Shakespeare that, at times, past may be prologue. The charges are linked below; those who are currently involved or r...

Shakespeare’s Birthday Just Went By, And He Barely Seems Older At All

Charles McNulty on the Bard in 2021: “Shakespeare’s characters keep drawing us back because we want to understand them more fully. They leave us with an impression of unfinished business. Just as no one in our lives can be fully known, so the figures in his plays reveal only so much about what they think, feel and believe.” – Los Angeles Times

"So, Walter Mondale shows up in heaven the other day, and I’m all eager to talk to him because I’m kind of a political junkie — see Richard III — but before I can say anything..."

"... he’s like, 'So?' And I’m like, 'So, what?' And then he goes, 'So, did you really write them?' And I’m like, 'Write what?' And he goes, 'Your plays.' And I’m like, 'What is this, some kind of Grant’s Tomb trick question? Of course I wrote my plays. Who did you think wrote them? Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford?' I say that as a joke because Edward de Vere is a moron — I once asked him to borrow a codpiece, and he gave me an actual piece of cod. But then Mondale is all, 'Yes, I actually hea...

Going out on a limb

Etymologists traditionally deal with two situations. They may face an impenetrable word, approach its murky history from every direction, and fail to find a convincing solution (or even any solution: “origin unknow,” “the rest is unclear,” and the like). But equally often they deal with a group of words that seem to be related, and yet the nature of the relationship is hard or impossible to demonstrate. Demonstrate is a more appropriate term than prove since proof is a rare commodity in etymolog...

Do you worry too much? Stoicism can help

Stoicism is the philosophy that nothing about the world is good or bad in itself, and that we have control over both our judgments and our reactions to things. It is hardest to control our reactions to the things that come unexpectedly. By meditating every day on the "worst case scenario," we can take the sting out of the worst that life can throw our way. Are you a worrier? Do you imagine nightmare scenarios and then get worked up and anxious about them? Does your mind get caught in a horribl...

With Theatres Closed, Regular Folks Have Taken To Doing Play Readings On Zoom

“Over the past year, as many theaters worldwide have remained closed, online play reading groups have arisen to fill that dramatic gap, with more or less prowess — on Zoom, on Skype, on the audio-only app Clubhouse. Some participants merely read their lines, scripts in hand, others act them out. Many clubs stick to Shakespeare and affiliated classics, but plenty range more widely, integrating contemporary plays, Star Trek episodes and film scripts.” Some stage professionals have started reading...

Four Ways Teachers Can Help Students Develop a Conscience

Conscience. It’s that little voice in our head that tells us the right thing to do, tapping into the side of ourselves that is innately good and kind, helping to silence the side that isn’t. When we listen to it, we feel peaceful, knowing we’re doing the right thing no matter how hard it is. When we don’t listen to it, well, that’s another story. “There is no witness so terrible and no accuser so powerful as conscience which dwells within us,” wrote Sophocles 2,500 years ago. Whatever the cen...

Master of the Revels

In the English royal household, the Master of the Revels was responsible for overseeing royal festivities (aka revels) and stage censorship. An important role in the time of William Shakespeare, which turns out to be a key DTAP (Destination Time And Place) in Nicole Galland’s follow-up to The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O., aptly titled Master of the Revels. Galland had collaborated with Neal Stephenson on the first book, but took this sequel on by herself. I’m always curious about how authors collab...

Bringing down the house, and the bookshelf, during a Zoom performance

Mine was small role, and yet it was not. There was nothing small about the JFed Players Community Theater Ensemble’s virtual production of “Studio System,” a charming musical comedy written by Mary Gatter and her collaborator, Larry Wuest. It was a good Pandemic project since the rehearsing and filming would be done entirely at home. That meant that each of the cast members had to set up a makeshift home studio and interact with each other via Zoom. As in “Which way do I turn my head to talk to ...

‘What If Shakespeare Wrote Shakespeare, But Someone Else Wrote Him First?’

That’s how one scholar summarizes the theory that the plays of William Shakespeare were written, yes, by the glover’s son from Stratford-upon-Avon — but adapted from scripts and prose works by the courtier and Latin translator Sir Thomas North. Here’s a look at the evidence. – Smithsonian Magazine

A Long-Lost Soviet Adaptation of The Lord of the Rings Resurfaces on YouTube–and Tolkien Fans Rejoice (1991)

When Peter Jackson’s The Fellowship of the Ring came out in 2001, it heralded a cinematic adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy that would, at long last, possess scale, production value, and sheer ambition enough to do justice to the original novels. This set it somewhat apart from the version of The Fellowship of the Ring that had aired just ten years before on Leningrad Television — and hasn’t been seen since, at least until its recent upload (in two parts) to Youtub...

Five Life Changes to Become More Supportive

Last week I had an eye opening chat with one of my favorite people, Shelley Benhoff. You can watch it on YouTube here. I asked Shelley about her advice for girls and women who are interested in a STEM/tech career. I also asked her for advice to guys who work with women in STEM, and how they can be more supportive. This has really been on my mind lately (as I was getting ready to talk to her about it), and I just can’t stop thinking about it. I recently woke up with some very specific ideas I th...
