Cirque Goes to the Cinema: Review

Cirque Goes to the Cinema: Review

The circus, silver screen, and symphony collided in a kaleidoscope of artistic expression at Belk Theater in Charlotte, North Carolina. Scores from famous films – including Rocky, Titanic, and Star Wars – served as a backdrop for aerialists, contortionists, and strongmen. These scores, however, did not fall into the background. Charlotte’s Symphony masterfully set the tempo and mood of […]

The Great Pumpkin Waltz

The Great Pumpkin Waltz

Here’s a poem for today The Great Pumpkin Waltz A gust of cool wind blows through the air along a path of trees Their looming branches getting caught in the breeze Pairs of leaves fall off in innumerable waves Journeying across the sky catching the sunlight flying to their destination on the ground Each gust is […]

Weird Theater News: Willy Wonka, Amy Schumer, and Basketball Musicals

Weird Theater News: Willy Wonka, Amy Schumer, and Basketball Musicals

About a month ago, I read the funniest headline of my entire life. It is, and I quote, “Weird Al, John Stamos, Finn Wolfhardt to star in Willy Wonka Concert.” To this day, I am convinced this casting was concocted in some fever dream or an alternate dimension. It is a work of modern art. […]

On this late summer day, just over a year ago, Charlotte managed to make national news – for all the wrong reasons.  This was the day that the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott brought Charlotte to the forefront of our attentions.

Album Review: Hard EP by The Neighbourhood

By now I’m sure most people have heard of the band, The Neighbourhood, which formed in Cali, back in 2011. If you haven’t heard of them, then I’m sure you’ve heard of their chart-topping song “Sweater Weather” from their debut album, I Love You., back in 2013. Then, the band established their Indie Rock sound and continued […]

“The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue”

“The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue”

I have just finished reading perhaps the greatest young adult novel ever written; at the very least, it is the greatest one my eyes and imagination have traversed. Even after completing the book, remembered waves crest in my mind’s eye, carrying a load heavier than the ships described in this novel. Flashes of banditry overtake […]

Tierra’s Met Adventures

Tierra’s Met Adventures

I recently got to paint the streets of New York City red as I explored the city on foot (and by Uber) last week. One of my last stops was the Metropolitan Museum of Art at Fifth Avenue, which is honestly my dream location in terms of where I would like to work in America after […]
