I received an e-mail from the South Orange Performing Arts Center (“SOPAC“) with the subject line “Free Stage Fight Demo Friday Night.” I was initially confused but intrigued at the same time, so I found out that they’re hosting an event with Rick Sordelet, who is known as a “Fight Director,” meaning that he works […]

I was recently doing some furniture shopping, and had my attention grabbed by this large scale imitation Gustav Klimt, hanging over a white leather sofa.

I was walking around South Orange (NJ) today, when I happened upon this unexpected duo sitting in the front window of Ye Olde Curiositie Shoppe on South Orange Avenue. We’ve got a very bored-looking gargoyle seated next to a somewhat nervous or anxious rat. You can tell that it’s a rat because of its skinny […]
