Come 'Homo For The Holidaze' With This Quarterly Queer Performance Showcase
Huffington Post - about 1 year
If you're in New York City, there's only one place where you can find yourself going "Homo for the Holidaze" this weekend. Sunday, Dec. 13, will mark the holiday edition of queer promoter, performer and nightlife aficionado Earl Dax's quarterly performance series "PUSSY FAGGOT!." Throughout the many shades and hues of queer performance in New York city, events like the ones curated by Dax and resident host Penny Arcade are somewhat rare. "PUSSY FAGGOT!," named after a drunken insult once hurled at Dax by a fellow promoter, brings together performers and influencers from a number of different scenes with a special focus on intergenerational and intersectional community building. "I'm always striving to get people together that you wouldn't typically see in the same room," Dax told The Huffington Post. "There are so many niche communities in New York, which is great, but I like a heterogenous mix of homosexuals, dykes, misfits, queers, trans and gender-variant folks and cool s ...

(R)evolution in Berlin: Colette's New DO Rides the Surfgeist
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
The collapse of the quantum wave predicted here in 2013 and announced here as a quantum EVENT during the 2015 Berlinale couldn't be complete without Spring Fever! Colette Lumiere the multimedia artist and innovator of the Colette Maison "Living Tableau". The Colette new "DO" erupts at the West Berlin Hagn Coiffeurs as the missing Third (Machen) to Heidegger's "Sein und Seit!" This endlessly-copied artist knows no bounds of time or space. Colette was born in North Africa to mixed ancestry, raised in France and has been characterized by social gadfly Anthony Haden-Guest as "a gauze-draped pillar of the New York art world." As she is being revived by a new generation seeking the authentic feminine repressed by 20th century feminism, the 2015 Artist in Residence @ Stiftung Starke brings her Laboratoire Lumiere to the once divided city...

Cosplay and Friends
CNN - over 3 years
My first experience with The Doctor was in college. Well, maybe a little before college. The summer before I started college (June - August 2008), I went on a sizable family bar/bat mitzvah tour in Israel, and one of the places we stayed was a kibbutz. As my brother and I were relaxing in our room, I flipped on the TV to see The Tenth Doctor with a horse on a spaceship ("The Girl In The Fireplace"), and I almost knew what I was watching, as if it was deja vu or preja vu. My brother wanted to change the channel, but we had to head out. Zipping ahead to college, I had a decent-sized group of friends, some from the dorm hall, others from the radio station and extracurriculars, others from classes, and some who overlapped between those categories. I consider two of those friends, Matt and Katherine, to be instrumental at getting me into 'Doctor Who'. The curly-haired Matt was a geeky man-child who always carried a Sonic Screwdriver in his messenger bag, along with a card game or two and h ...

Mink Stole and Penny Arcade in <i>The Mutilated</i>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
If you could mate John Waters with Charles Ludlam, the offspring might be Mink Stole and Penny Arcade, lead performers in a new production of Tennessee Williams' "The Mutilated." First seen in 1966 as a one-acter on Broadway, coupled with "The Gnadiges Fraulein," the program entitled "Slapstick Tragedy," the play has been relegated to a theatrical dust heap. Seen in its new jazzy production under the fine direction of Cosmin Chivu at the New Ohio Theater, "The Mutilated" resonates with familiar Tennessee tropes and showcases these over-the-top performers in a New Orleans demimonde, imaginatively on the same streetcar line as the Wingfields' in Glass Menagerie. Celeste Delacroix Griffin (Penny Arcade), a boisterous and bosomy prostitute, is just out of prison and out of luck. The more financially self-sufficient Trinket Dugan (Mink Stole) aches with loneliness. Bringing home a sailor to the hotel room she occupies, she's prey to his nasty, drunken behavior that hews close to Streetcar ...

Click Right Here, Folks, For The World's Largest Exhibition About 'King Of The Freaks' Johnny Eck
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Johnny Eck once walked to the top of the Washington Monument on his hands. He couldn't have done it any other way; he had no legs. Eck was born in Baltimore in 1911, healthy despite missing the lower half of his body. In 1923 or 1924 -- accounts vary -- he and his twin brother Robert, who was fully developed, were plucked from the audience of a magic show to leave school and join the circus-world themselves. The plucker, described as "an unsavory manager" who "would plague him for years" in Eck's 1991 Baltimore Sun obituary, nonetheless set the so-called “King of the Freaks” on an irreplicable life path: "I was a performer, walked a tight rope, worked on trapeze, juggled -- I did everything," Eck recalled in the book, "America's Forgotten Folk Arts." Eck relished life among society's fringe elements. "I met hundreds and thousands of people, and none finer than the midgets and the Siamese twins and the caterpillar man and the bearded woman and the human seal with the little fli ...

Users can play PlayStation 4 or Wii U through the Xbox One
Yahoo News - over 3 years
One of the stranger stories that has been circulating for the past few months is the Xbox One’s supposed ability to run virtually any HDMI-compatible device through its HDMI input, even the consoles it will be competing against over the holidays. True or not, there had to be a catch, but according to an interview at the Penny Arcade Report, this might be a genuinely feasible way to add a console to your living room setup without taking up another HDMI port on the television. Jeff Henshaw, Group Program Manager of Xbox, said that “[i]f it puts out HDMI, it’ll work just great,” and any potential lag will be imperceptible to the human eye. Although PAR asked specifically about the

New skill-based casino slots play for video gamers
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Slot machine manufacturers are rolling out a raft of games inspired by the penny arcade, hoping to attract middle-aged gamblers with a dose of nostalgia and the promise of finally cashing in on all those hours spent in front of a screen. A Centipede slot machine to hit casino floors soon is more than just a clever licensing deal, or a sign of gambling's cosmetic change from one-armed bandits to touch screens and digital music. Bodies swaying around a joystick, they maneuvered their character on an overhead screen, dodging spider attacks and shooting at creepy insects amid a flurry of "pew pew" sounds. Nevada regulators have seen an uptick in the number of slot machines incorporating skilled bonus rounds, according to Gaming Control Board engineer Joel Eickhoff. Advocates who work around gambling addiction worry the shoot 'em up bonus rounds could hurt "escape gamblers," who use wagering as a narcotic to forget about real world dilemmas. In 10 years, millennials who played Grand ...

Yahoo News - over 3 years
Microsoft had more good news for independent developers at the Penny Arcade Expo. Speaking with Joystiq, portfolio director for digital games at Microsoft Studios Chris Charla confirmed that indie games self-published through Microsoft’s ID@Xbox program will be supported regardless of their payment model, including free-to-play games and games with micro-transactions. This will allow for a much greater range of titles than were previously available on the Xbox Live Arcade, bringing the program more in line with Steam’s wide variety of content. Independent titles will also have Achievements and can be used in conjunction with Kinect and SmartGlass. Microsoft is intent on convincing both developers and gamers that the Xbox One will be just as indie-friendly as the PlayStation 4.

MiniTime: 8 Uncommonly Cool Children's Museums
Huffington Post - over 3 years
(photo: Paul Specht/Boston Children's Museum) While plenty of adult museums offer specific exhibits with kid appeal, there is a whole genre of museums that take child-friendliness to a much higher level. These institutions are specifically designed to engage the younger set through hands-on, interactive exhibits that literally turn learning into child's play. Compared to theme parks, whose admission fees can be pricey, the best children's museums are typically a relative bargain. And more good news: finding a good children's museum is pretty easy. The non-profit Association of Children's Museums includes well over 200 members throughout the United States that together welcome more than 30 million kids and parents annually. Among the scores of wonderful kid's museum out there, here are 8 standouts that have wowed us recently with their ability to innovate, engage, and expand their offerings.

Breeding Ground
The Portland Mercury - over 3 years
Conduit's Dance+ is a breeding ground for new ideas. by Jenna Lechner CONDUIT'S SECOND ANNUAL Dance+ series is a curated performance series featuring artists from the West Coast and Texas. It's a two-weekend show with different programs each weekend, and last weekend's first round of shows—a diverse mix of dance, heavy on duets between women—was a mixed bag. Standouts included Subashini Ganesan and Michelle Fujii's Omoide Ananda II, a beautiful merging of two distinct traditions: Japanese drumming (by Fujii of Portland Taiko) and south Indian classical dance (by Ganesan of Natya Leela Academy). The two perform solo, rhythmically cued by one another, and in unison. Ganesan is lyrical and coy, Fujii overtly confident and joyous. More colloquial movements came in the form of Jessica Hightower's piece, Problem of Bias, which at times felt like a penny arcade, the dancers moving like marionettes. In a more absurd vein was the confused ...
