    The Prince of Egypt: Fact vs Fiction

    The Prince of Egypt: Fact vs Fiction

    The Prince of Egypt will always stand the test of time as one of the best animated films produced (Oscar award winning for Best Original Song for 'When you Believe') that doesn't come under the Disney umbrella. The Prince of Egypt was Dreamworks' second animated film and grossed over $208 million worldwide. Not bad for a film pitch that was initially rejected by Disney!

    The Great GI Joe Heist

    The Great GI Joe Heist

    The summer of 1987 continued to yawn over Minnesota. It was a bright and sunny Friday at the Fairmont Family Splash n’ Play. Walk Like An Egyptian was playing over the PA system again. Some grumbled that that song would never go away but then when the post-solo break came up, everyone whistled along. The pool was roiling with splashing, screeching children. Their exhausted parents lay cooking on vinyl deck chairs. A bored lifeguard fought to stay awake in a high wooden chair at the pool’s edge. Behind the dying palm trees and bushes, a crime was being planned.

    Anonymity in Art and Literature

    Anonymity in Art and Literature

    Personality and identity in a piece of art shapes the resulting work — but so does anonymity. What if all art in any form was anonymous? Hard to imagine what we would think of Andy Warhol’s work without knowing anything about his personal life or who he was. It’s hard to separate his personality, lifestyle and social circle from his art — one fed off the other.

    Playing the Cards

    Playing the Cards

    Glastonbury, UK, is a town as much known for the magical, mythological and mysterious as Salem, Massachusetts. There is a real Druid college there, and every year they crown one among them as their Chief Bard - one who can advance their cause with the gifts of story and song. There's a Bardic Trial every year - think a rap battle or a poetry slam, but with more flowing cloaks and crow feathers - with a theme announced by the outgoing holder of "The Chair" (In most places where these traditions still live, the Bard's "Chair" is a figure of speech; except in Glastonbury, of course, where there is an actual chair made of solid metal. Because of course there is).

    The Oddly Colored "Black" Anime Characters

    In a world that caters to people of lighter skin tones, anime and manga falls short to the global norm based on European beauty standards and a lack of dark-skinned representation under positive light. Anime like Naruto and Bleach are very good at showcasing darker skin tones, yet one of the two will be a good part of the article’s topic down below.

    The Curious Sorcerer

    The Curious Sorcerer

    Blistering winds flow through the wind. Cherry blossoms fill the air. Memories of when I was filled with euphoria. Excited for the next moment or phase in life. When a pandemic started and the isolation began, something started that wasn’t intended to. A reunion that became a complicated relationship.

    76, Clancy's journey, an excerpt from the story.

    76, Clancy’s journey is a work of fiction. Happy reading. Here's an excerpt. Listen to it on the podcast too. While he was still looking around and behind the car. With his head out the window. Debbie was to have said in a low tone of voice, “what took you so long?” Clancy, with querying surprise in his eyes. Pulled his head back inside the car. Looked across at Debbie who was now looking outside by way of the window on her side of the car. Clancy could not see her full facial view, nor her eyes.

    The Devaluing of Literature by the Digitization of Books

    The Devaluing of Literature by the Digitization of Books

    The rise of e-books is something that is already impacting the world of literature. The digitization of books is devaluing literature because it is taking money out of the pocket of professional authors. It allows nonprofessionals to publish work at the same value as a professional, and also makes it to where you can buy a classic piece of literature for less than its worth. Though digital books are easily accessible and more affordable, they put a negative look on classic literature. In this digital world, we now live in, everything can be found and bought online. Not having to go out and wait in a line is appealing. However, thinking about this from an author’s perspective, e-books hurt their royalties. Buying a digital version is much cheaper than buying the hardcover or paperback book.

    Is Bojack Horseman an allegory of Tennessee Williams?

    Is Bojack Horseman an allegory of Tennessee Williams?

    Though much of the satire throughout the series can easily be traced back to real life (for example, Mr Peanutbutter's campaign for governor being a parody of Trump's presidential run), a perhaps more subtle yet still remarkably clear allegory throughout the show's existence is the striking similarities between Bojack Horseman and the life and works of Tennessee Williams.

    The President and the Pin Up

    The President and the Pin Up

    When the name Marilyn Monroe is mentioned, two images are likely to come to mind; the skirt blowing scene of Billy Wilder's Seven Year Itch (1955), or the infamously breathy rendition of 'Happy Birthday' sung to John F Kennedy by Monroe in 1961. Both pop culture moments capture the image often associated with Marilyn; that of a beautiful, flirtatious woman who oozes sex appeal and knows how to use it. This image, though indicative of the Golden Age of Hollywood and the bombshells who thrived in it, is only a small part of the complex character Monroe was, and has largely damaged her reputation.
