Guest Blogger: Megan Minutillo Creates Because It’s A Beautiful Thing

Megan and I met about a year ago through our mutual friend, Michael Roderick. We are New Yorkers. We are artists. We are Libras. We hit it off in a second. We bonded over our mutual love and respect for art, specifically theatre. However, we have both crossed the beautiful line of this crazy world … Continue reading Guest Blogger: Megan Minutillo Creates Because It’s A Beautiful Thing

TBB: The Pawn Broker, They Call Me Q, No Strings Attached

Everyone needs a vacation. Even though I did do some work (on the beach is not a bad place), I did manage to turn it off for a little bit. While away, I learned some useful nuggets of information: 1.

Guest Blogger: Jp Vigliotti’s Curious Mind Leads to a Musical

There's also a part of me that thinks that the scandals of yestercentury would make a good E! True Hollywood Story or Vh1 Special. When I … Continue reading Guest Blogger: Jp Vigliotti’s Curious Mind Leads to a Musical

First Fridays with Valerie G. Keane: You see that crack? That is how the light gets in.

June was both a glorious and enormously rough month. I have emerged from it feeling rather raw and tender and open.  And sometimes, perhaps this is a necessary and good place to be.
