I would hazard a guess that "It blowed up real good!" would be a good description of the end of the show.
I am not even going to read the original post by Hugh. It doesn't matter. Hugh, if you ever read this, please don't care about what envious people think. It's clear from your interviews and from your posts that you're a good guy. Nobody said you'd have to be perfect and always write the right stuff, or always be politically correct. Thanks again for the good reads ;)
I watched It's a Wonderful life outdoors at a neighborhood screening in the freezing cold and got a little metal bell to prove it.
Has anyone actually ever watched It's A Wonderful Life? I think that's just a thing people say they do.

Thanks, Courtney, for writing this article about Sarah's show.
I've had a number of questions already this week from friends and art lovers about Sarah's work, which is sometimes difficult for people to get into - particularly in Charleston with it's small contemporary art market. But I think you understood what we were going for in the gallery when we installed her show, which was to show her process alongside her finished works.
Sarah and I have talked over the years about how to display her work so people could better understand her process of abstraction, taking defined objects, like Georgia O'Keefe's hair bun or an ice cream cone, and repeating them until they take on a life of their own. The paper pieces in the show are here to buy (of course) but also as reference for the larger works that take those familiar elements she loves and obsesses over and pushes them further from their original form to create a new visual dialogue. Her recent residency at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, from where this entire body of work is curated, produced great group of paintings and mixed media pieces, and the smaller "messy" installations here were our way of recreating her head space.
For those City Paper readers and art lovers who are new to abstract art, and those who already know Sarah's work, you can visit us between 9-5 Monday through Friday in Avondale. Art exists to be experienced, so feel free to stop on by.
A fine book that tells the story from inside out. Mc Master was and is the biggest criminal in this story...a genuine sleaze.
Cool '58 Ford with Cool Gal!
I think You are right, and a movie more about the sisters would have been better. You had me until here:
"it simply falls a little flat"
I think it was a great movie, and while I think more time developing the sisters would make a good movie too, It was great as it stands if you just stop and consider that:
-The movie emphaisized sisterly love as the driving force rather than romantic love, which I think may be a Disney first.
-Despite the screentime being mostly devoted to snow, a reindeer, a male character, and a female lead, It was actually about THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO SISTERS WHO DON'T KNOW HOW TO BE SISTERS.
-It was a damn good movie in a time when most movies fail the bechdel test altogether.
I liked it.
I agree with you.
Please state all perspectives of the story, and keep this work up.
"Local at heart girl". Nice, that's what Yankees say
The weather here sucks balls.
As long as they fix this, I don't care what else they do:
Sounds like a bunch of nobodies to me.
So much fun! Going back this weekend with more friends!
I guess because a show about five heterosexuals eating a quiche just wouldn't have worked or been nearly as funny. The real question is why you feel threatened by it. It's a play. Come see it. You might enjoy it.
Why do lesbians rate extra attention in the media? How about "5 heterosexuals eating a quiche"? Hardly newsworthy. But LESBIANS!! That's somehow suppose to be special, even magical. Why? I'm just saying.
"We cannot fault Disney too much for putting profit over making a social statement."
Yes. Yes we can.
Excellent article. Very insightful. We cannot fault Disney too much for putting profit over making a social statement. They are a business. Overall, they do well balancing mass appeal and meaningful themes. But your article deftly raised the question of whether they have swung too far toward the former. Thanks for a thoughtful article.
