It is better to have a bad plan than no plan.—Garry Kasparov

It is a little ironic: We plan our vacations months, even years, inadvance, right down to the teensiest detail. We plan our wardrobe—the number of skirts or shirts we need, their style, color,and size. And we plan our social lives. But...

For those who never studied ancient Greek and/or Roman theatre (theatre history was one of my favorite courses in college), Deus Ex Machina, translating "God in the Machine," was the introduction of a deity or improbable element into a play to resolve the entanglements of the plot.

I used to be terrified about what other people thought. I kept my opinions to myself and tried my best to remain neutral on topics, even when I had a strong opinion, because I feared people would judge me. To me, the worst thing in the world would be someone thinking I’m stupid.

I know this may be... Read more of this blog post »

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice The Art of the Film by Peter Aperlo
I did not see BVS in theaters, because once I heard that Zack Snyder would release an R-rated version of the film, I thought, what’s the point? Man of Steel was a good movie, the destruction porn did not bother me as it bothered some people. I understand the comments and criticism of both Man of... Read more of this blog post »

Apocalypse
by Gabe Redel


In a small tomb
dug underground
a trapped man sits.

With his arms outspread,
stretching from wall to wall,
and his neck bent
under the ceiling
he fights
to keep the walls from caving in.

What once was alive in him
has become his surroundings.

His arms and shoulders throb
