The opening announcements for Martial Arts at Towson University were brief; the audience was advised that the show contains “gunfire, smoke effect, brief strobe effect, and a Russian playwright.” That’s just the beginning. As part of the New Russian Drama series, Yury Klavdiev’s play has been translated and brought to life in the Center for […]

Not a Fan of Facebook

I’m not a fan of Facebook. For many people, Facebook is social glue; a social networking magnate that ties disparate groups and individuals together, sorted out in a neat little (and aesthetically pleasing) package. I admit that it can be difficult living without it. I know that I’ve sacrificed social opportunities by being out of […]

Catching Up with Oscar

I have been uninspired this week, despite having lots of free time. I’ve been trying to catch up with this year’s Oscar winners. I enjoyed Up so much that I’ll be getting a copy of it. Up In the Air too, though I don’t need my own copy. Both had some emotional moments and the […]

New Jersey is home of cheap gas ($2.49/gallon) and expensive cigarettes ($6.80/pack), two metrics I use to mentally calculate inflation and cost of living. I recently spent a weekend vacationing there with some good friends. Rather than taking the infamous New Jersey Turnpike and paying an absurd amount of money to deal with lead-footed drivers, […]

Life Can Turn in a Instant

I’ve made a decision to alter my path. It is incredible how life can turn, twist, bounce, reverse, and send you looping around on your way to an unknown destination. One day you’re thinking and progressing a certain way and then the next you’re a changed person. The catalyst to these changes can be something […]

If someone breaks into your Maryland home and sustains an injury, they can sue you. They might even win. If they die, I suppose their family could sue you as well. I don’t understand it at all. Not that there wasn’t already a law preventing that sort of lawsuit from being filed, but that a […]
