It is obvious that I’m a fan of Game of Thrones. I have written character descriptions, comparing many of them to beer, and then more beer. I have practiced ways of proposing to Daenerys Targaryen, with or without dragons and with or without clothes. I got involved in a photoshop contest. But, it wasn’t enough. I needed more. Luckily, I found a cross-dimensional device that could very well help me get to Westeros, a place which my feeble nerd brain believed was not in the past, but in some weird, linear past where stunted men ran around screwing hot women, where political leaders were corrupt and suspicious, where Sean Bean would survive a movie or season. So with my hover-board, a photographer, a bit too much alcohol consumption, and a few hours in the desert surrounding Las Vegas, Nevada, I bring to you my trip to Westeros.

For the past decade, our human lust for apocalyptic destruction and despair has been described with one word: zombies. Zombies have taken over literature with such Pulitzer Prize-winning novel such as The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance. They have had a resurgence in film, from remakes such as Dawn of the Dead to more recent flicks such as 28 Days Later and Zombieland. Now zombies have even taken to television, as AMC released one of the most graphic, yet poignant series to grace general cable: The Walking Dead.

No, I am not a fan of the re-released versions of Star Wars as a result. It wasn’t until this 3-D release, however, that I began to fully understand the method behind all of these Star Wars releases. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense that the blame for the re-re-re-re-re-release of the Star Wars series didn’t really fall on the shoulders of George Lucas. It fell on ours, the public.

Little Women the Musical is slated to be experienced during the next two weeks in the greater New York Metropolitan area at The Secret Theatre, I, for one, am excited, with no resemblance to the online predator meme of pedo-bear. Promise.

In the world of the entertainment industry, the artisans that usually gain the most attention are the ones that are always in your face: actors and actresses, directors, lead vocalists… Behind the show, however, are the artisans that make sure the attention-getters look and sound good: soundboard mixers, cinematographers, set designers, costume designers, and make-up and special FX artists. Without these individuals, we would be forced to submit to one-frame, monophonic sound film where you can see the zippers on the backs of monsters. It is with this respect for the artists behind the scenes that a recent web-series, Art Creature, has take its cue from.
