Re: “The life and romance of Gene Wilder

Wow. This makes me want to go watch all of his movies! Have always loved him when I happened to come across one of his movies. Now, I think I will go back and see if I can find a few on purpose. Thanks Kevin. This article, as is true of your previous works, was very enjoyable to read and makes me go check out what you found interesting enough to write about. Not sure the above made sense. But to be clear, thanks! Great one again. Vicki McGillivray

Re: “Are Pay What You Will nights beneficial to theater companies?

I actually agree with both sides of this argument. I, as a student, have only been able to go see many shows because of reduced or PWYW events at theatres both in my hometown and on Broadway. Those reduced prices have allowed me to see shows I definitely would not have been able to see at full price. I do also agree that PWYW events bring in more people that might not usually go to the theatre. Whether it's because of lack of funds or simply uncertainty, removing the monetary pressure on these people makes the theatre less intimidating and more accessible.

On the other hand, I do think that these types of things can bring people to the theatre that will not enjoy or experience it in the way it was intended, and could potentially hurt their future views and expectations. When the cost of something goes down, people have a tendency to see it as lesser, consciously or not, because to them it physically has been devalued. I think it's good to give people an opportunnity to be proven wrong, but I don't think that's possible in every case.

Re: “A look at Charleston's theater scene today

We're certainly working in the audio drama space - plays for the ears, that require no theatre space, just a web link published in iTunes and Google Play, to produce/perform works by local playwrights and performed by local actors. It doesn't put people in the seats (there are no seats), but it does give an outlet to create and entertain beyond our borders.

Re: “Pregnant Kathryn Dennis spotted filming in downtown Charleston

Sorry to disappoint all the negative un romantics out there.....But Sir Thomas Ravenel
And Lady Kathryn Denis are still the most handsome and beautiful couple
in the Kingdom of Charleston.....They are equally royal, brilliant, stunning, elegant
and in love with each other.....just their timing is off as Lady Kathryn has wisely
noted .....Sad to to see the proverbial "onion" peeled away highlighting the disappointing others in the cast. They have displayed disloyalty, inappropriate
behavior, rudeness , lack of character and certainly a lack of Southern Charm!
Long live and Prosper with many blessings to Sir Thomas and his Lady Love
the beautiful and wise Lady Kathryn who is the most educated mannered and
Charming of them all....

Relevant and insightful on so many levels and leads to the most significant ritual of all--Who are you? What do you embody? How do you manifest your dignity as a human being? How do you grow beyond and determine how the others see you? Can't wait to see the exhibit,

Re: “1970's Colossus: the Forbin Project is more relevant than ever

Colossus: The Forbin Project is perhaps my all-time favorite movie. I say this not because of the subtle and intricate yet fascinating and explosive good story you reveal in your interesting review, but because of the intelligence and power of Colossus and its ability to take control.

Artificial intelligence presently is growing rapidly and many smart people are concerned about the possible outcome so creatively and devastatingly portrayed in this film. So it is both timely and valuable that you have now uncovered and have again revealed Colossus because the story serves as an example of the way AI despite good intentions is a Pandora's box.

I'm not speaking out of fear for the future of humankind. The truth is quite the opposite. I work in artificial intelligence and I see it's the evolution of human intelligence. So I'm comfortable knowing the futures described in Colossus, Terminator, I,Robot and other films where the computer as you say "cause misery" is possible, highly probable, and will continue to be the subject of fascinating and fun films.

In fact, Colossus:The Forbin Project is so great a story that it is planned to be retold in an upcoming movie directed by the very talented Ron Howard. I'm enthusiastically looking forward to that big production and release because there are indications the script will include the entire Colossus trilogy!

You see, after Colossus takes over the world the story continues. Brilliant author D.F. Jones also gave us The Fall Of Colossus, and Colossus And The Crab to complete and dramatically end this amazing tale. Each of the titled paperbacks are still available online at Amazon and Ebay after a search of the author's name. I strongly suggest you obtain copies if your enjoyment of the film equals your curiosity to find out what happens at the end.

Yes, it is quite relavant. These days, I carry Colossus: the Forbin Project around with me all the time. I put it on my iPad and my iPhone so I can watch it anywhere and anytime to be deeply reminded of where AI and my work might be going. I think that first part of the story and that film is extraordinary so I'm glad your keen interest and your good work led you to it.

Well referring to the one on my wall, they are not all Caucasian on the current calendar. Maybe you should have bought one instead of complaining ImFromHere.

Re: “Charleston art galleries grapple with alcohol licensing following the Palette and Palate Stroll

Simple,rather than include the spirits in the price of the ticket, just ask for "DONATIONS" to attend the event. Voluntary donations.
You are not selling spirits, you are giving it away.
