Act 3

Well, somber ending. I looked up the author, and the play of course. It was originally made for puppet theater. Explain some things, I will say that. I am glad a live action, Kabuki style play of it was made after the puppet version, because my god I can not take puppets killing themselves out… Read more Act 3

Acts 1-2

I love Japanese, well culture in general honestly. The media, the customs, it’s all great. That said, this is the first sort of play, novel type thing I have read of Japanese origin. Like it so far, samurai stories of any kind are pretty good. That said O-San´s dad seems like kinda a dick, thinking… Read more Acts 1-2

American Sunrise I liked as well because that is where the cynical things come into play. ¨We are still America. We know… Read more Joy Harjo

Ted Talk

It was disturbing and frankley eye opening to see these names and crimes hidden about Black women. I had no idea it was such a rampant problem, and honestly it’s even more relevant now because of the Brianna Taylor fiasco. It is almost like the media favors tragedies that are more trendy and well sell… Read more Ted Talk
