So, it’s Mother’s Day, at least in much of North America, and a few other places. Mexico, where my mother lives, celebrated it on Friday, as their Mother’s Day is always on May 10th, instead of being the second Sunday in May, or seventy-third day after the first dark Tuesday, or whatever. But, anyway, it’s [...]
Coffee has been part of my life nearly as far back as I can remember, my earliest experience of it being the “coffee-milk” my mother used to make for me by spooning teaspoons of her thick, black, brew into my class of moo-juice from time to time. It is precisely because of this that I [...]
There are cities around the world that don’t require the addition of the state or country name to define them. Paris is one; New York and London are others. Tokyo, Singapore, and Rome are part of that illustrious list as well – and each of them has its own cachet of sophistication. One other iconic [...]
If you’re a geek like me, our Man of the Moment, Eddie McClintock needs no introduction. He’s the man who plays Agent Pete Latimer on the SyFy original series Warehouse 13. He’s also a husband, father, dog-owner, and – as most of the best people are – still in touch with his inner ten-year-old. Recently, [...]
A decade ago, I hadn’t done a lot improv. I mean, I’d done some in school, and had done some street theatre as an adult, but if you’d asked me about my future, spending several years in a professional improvisational comedy troupe would not have come up. But then, neither would have being a regular [...]
April is National Poetry Month, at least in the USA, and the eighteenth is the day we’re supposed to acknowledge the poems we carry in our pockets. Most of my clothes don’t even have pockets, and the only poetry I write is not for public consumption, but I’ve loved poetry since I was young enough [...]
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been madly in love with rain. At the first taste of ozone in the air, the first sub-sonic rumble of thunder, my brain comes alive, my heart starts to pound with anticipation, and my feet begin to tap a staccato rhythm on the floor. Maybe I’ve watched [...]
Life has an interesting way of throwing people together. I first met Kymm via her LiveJournal writings for the annual Holidailies meme, in which bloggers attempt to post daily during the month of December. Kymm first met me, however, via Sage Tyrtle’s QN podcast, and for the better part of a year or two, we [...]
Ever since I was a child, I’ve come alive after dark, as if my creative self is clicked on in tandem with the turning on of lamps. I’ve never been the type to bounce perkily out of bed to sing along with the morning birds, but in the wee hours of the morning, in that [...]
When you’re an only child (which I was for most of my life, as my stepbrother didn’t come into my life until I was nearly twelve (and he was nearly thirteen), and didn’t live with us every single year between then and either of our high school graduations) finding people to play games with can [...]
Smart, savvy, sensational, Sara Lindsey has been all over our movie screens this year. With another film coming out just after Christmas, it’s clear this young woman’s career is quite a Promised Land. She spent some time telling us about her life onscreen and off. Sara, I know you’re just a few years out of [...]
Actor and educator Mary McCann just closed a run of Harper Regan, in which she had the title role. She graciously answered our questions about life on small islands, in big cities, and in independent theater companies. Mary, please tell our readers a bit about who you are, and where you’re from. I know you’re [...]
While much of the world – at least the western world – is caught up in preparations for Christmas, for Jewish people today is the first day of Hanukkah (though technically, last night was the first night, as Jewish holidays begin at sundown the night before the calendar date), the centuries-old (it pre-dates Christianity by [...]
Actor, producer, international man of many talents… Roberto Aguire may not be a household name yet, but we’re certain he will be all too soon. He took the time to answer our questions about film in general, and his involvement in the soon-to-be-released Struck by Lightning, in particular. Roberto, IMDB says that you have dual [...]
While everyone around me is in the throes of decorating for Christmas, I am not. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I love to decorate, change my decor for every holiday, and have boxes upon boxes of Christmas “stuff,” but this weekend I’ve been busy relocating my writing space. I should explain: My husband and I [...]
Whether it’s guesting on CSI or playing a guitarist in an MTV dramedy, Inbar Lavi is anything but Underemployed. In this interview, the actress tells us about herself, her character, and her worst non-acting job. Inbar, please tell our readers a bit about who you are, and where you’re from. I know you’re from Israel. [...]
The little girl climbed into the old man’s lap, and rubbed her small, soft hand against his grizzled cheek. “I like your whiskers, Grandpop,” she told him. “You do, do you?” was his affectionate reply, accompanied by a gentle tug at one of her braids. “Yes,” she said. “They make you look handsome. Like a [...]
When I first heard Shana Tucker’s music, I emailed Roxanne and said, “If you don’t interview this woman, I will.” We decided to join forces since we both love music but have different perspectives on it. (I spent a good chunk of my childhood studying the cello myself, so I’m always eager to hear how [...]
