Re: “Get featured on City Paper cover, receive nomination for big-deal award

Congratulations on the nomination.
Good luck. This is an extremely high honor for anyone in the industry.

I wonder if the city paper could run another more in depth article on her. I'd love to read about her experiences, how she got where she is and if she is a native of the holy city. We love to push the talents of our own :)

Re: “Seventy years after enlisting in Hitler's army, a German soldier revisits his experience in this documentary

Dresden was destroyed immediately prior to Germanys surrender.....Fifteen year olds were not taken into the Wehrmacht....there was no time or effort...and barely any weapons for the Volksturm call ups of old men which had been recent as well. Boys of his age were used to assist antiaircraft batteries...and please...lose the soundtrack...

Re: “Obama's inaugural poet Richard Blanco to speak at School of the Arts on April 22

Richard Blanco is okay, but President Obama's first inaugural poet, Elizabeth Alexander, is superior.

Re: “Mt. Pleasant's Babs Tarr joins the Bat Family and helps give Batgirl a much-needed Veronica Mars makeover

I was fortunate to see a screening of "She Makes Comics" by Park Circle Film Society and she exemplifies what they were talking about in the documentary. More and more women are coming back into comics and that is a great thing. The differing perspectives are pushing comics away from the fanboy anatomically impossible characters to real characters and much richer story lines. It is great to see this happening in the medium and when I put on my comic book shows I have noticed a big and refreshing change in the attendees from a dozen years ago when it was just a boys club.

Re: “The crew is back in an extended trailer for the second season of Southern Charm

Wow, talk about an attack from someone with no credibility!
Susan Kent Cooke was 31 when she married 74-year-old Jack Kent Cooke for 73 days (do the math - he was 43 years older than she was), and got pregnant so she could work around the prenuptial agreement by hitting him up for child support, even though she had promised not to get pregnant. She then sued him for $15 million!!
Then Suzanne Martin became "Suzanne Kent Cooke" -- she took his last name AND his middle name just so everyone would know WHICH Cooke she had been briefly married to.
Have you ever heard of any other married woman doing that?
Every fact she cites about Pat Altschul is wrong. Pat has been on lots of serious boards like the Metropolitan Museum, Rockefeller Brothers Fund (Hudson River Trust), and the Gibbs Museum. She has enormous credibility, unlike "Suzanne Kent Cooke".
Good grief.

Re: “On the cover: Phillip Hyman’s Walter Scott piece

As someone who has known Phillip personally for many years, I can say that publicity is the last thing he was looking for. It's almost impossible to believe but there are some people on this planet who are not solely motivated by their own greed and advancement.

Re: “Theater review: Marie Antoinette fails to emotionally connect

I couldn't disagree more with this review. The script is smart, funny and accessible. Ms. Graci's immaculately choreographed transitions from scene to scene were a joy to watch. The performances were spectacular, especially Ms. Haring's tour-de-force turn as Marie Antoinette. Although he rightly praised the gorgeous, inventive costumes, the reviewer missed the finer points of the scenic design and completely ignored the stellar lighting and sound designs, both of which were among the best I've seen at Pure. Scenically, the design takes inspiration from Philippe Starck's Louis Ghost Chairs, crafting everything from tables to archery bows in clear acrylic. Like the script, it presents historical details in a modern aesthetic, while metaphorically nodding to the fact that Marie is without privacy and perpetually on display. The sound design also plays with the anachronistic aesthetic, setting the action against French covers of pop music that infuse the show with a sense of playfulness and rebellion. The lighting design continues the theme with clear acrylic footlights adorned with fleurs-de-lis, using them to ominous effect in a design that evokes time, mood and place effortlessly in the confines of a black box space that is extremely difficult to work in. This show is smart – really, really smart – and an absolute joy to watch.

artnold, Why would a company that publishes something want publicity?

The real motivation behind this piece is publicity.

Re: “On the cover: Phillip Hyman’s Walter Scott piece

I like the piece, but I did immediately associate it with Trayvon Martin and not Walter Scott.

I'm just being honest. Good job on creating it.

Re: “Columbia City Ballet brings Jonathan Green's painting to life this Saturday

I love ballet so much! The people, the uniforms, the tutus, the show, the story - they're all really beautiful! I love to buy my ballet uniforms from www.energetiks.com.au - they always have new models and they're all really cute! It's not expensive as well. Try to visit that site if you're looking for some ballet uniforms:)
