Philip Seymour Hoffman: Trying to Hold Mercury
Huffington Post - about 3 years
This piece, I originally wrote for NoTofu.com, the online presence of the up-and-coming avant-garde print magazine, NO TOFU. It went live on NoTofu.com this morning. Here it is again, with a few small edits I added. Thank you to those who belong to or are connected to the LAByrinth Theater Company for participating in making this story happen. If you came up in the New York theater in the 2000s, as I did, and cut your teeth in tiny, but respected off-Broadway houses, like the Rattlestick, the McGinn/Cazale, 2nd Stage, LaMama, you hoped, you prayed, to even approach the outskirts of the orbit of the planet-sized talent of Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman. Already a disciple of his work, ever since seeing his heartbreakingly perverse, self-loathing performance as "Allen" in Todd Solondz' 1998 black comedy, Happiness, I subsequently attended his every film, to marvel at how he shape-shifted like mercury -- in roles such as Rusty, the dignified transvestite in Joel Schumacher's Flawless (1999) ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
The National Council of La Raza celebrated its 14th Annual ALMA Awards on Friday Sept. 27 with a brief but star-studded event at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Stars Eva Longoria and Mario Lopez hosted the event that celebrated the civic work and activism of Latino celebrities in the U.S. as well as their contributions to the arts. The hour-long celebration saw stars such as Robert Rodriguez, Rosario Dawson, Carlos Santana, Tony Plana, and others receive awards for their work promoting noble causes in the arts and for their work in advancing the roles and positive perceptions of Latinos in the arts and media.

The 'Dexter' Gang Says Goodbye
Huffington Post - over 3 years
SAN DIEGO — There weren't any kills at the final panel for "Dexter" at Comic-Con, but there were some tears. "Dexter" actresses Jennifer Carpenter and Lauren Velez held back the waterworks as they expressed their gratitude to fans gathered inside the San Diego Convention Center for the pop-culture convention. "You're the reason we show up every day," said Carpenter, who plays Deb, the conflicted sister of loveable serial killer Dexter Morgan. "We want to do right by you because your standards are high, and you deserve good work, so it can't be a wrap until we're all here together, especially for those who waited to be in this room." Many of the "Dexter" devotees had camped out for a chance to see Michael C. Hall and the rest of the cast, who finished production on the eighth and final season of the Showtime drama last week. "Just as you all waited in line and are here for us, we have been here for you, and we are here because of you," said Hall. The panel ...
