UVa. men’s soccer rolls past George Mason, 3-0
Augusta Free Press - over 4 years
The Virginia men’s soccer team controlled possession throughout as it rolled to a 3-0 victory over George Mason Tuesday evening at Klöckner Stadium. The Cavaliers (2-3) handed the Patriots (4-1-1) their first defeat of the season while snapping a two-game losing skid. “I think it was a good performance for us against a solid George Mason team,” Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch said. “I think Mason is a playoff team. To be honest, we have been playing this level of soccer throughout the year. I think tonight we took some chances, we finished our chances and we were pretty resolute in defending. I think our perseverance and belief in ourselves showed through tonight.” Virginia received goals from each of their starting forwards, Ryan Zinkhan (Jr., Fredericksburg, Va.) and Darius Madison (So., Philadelphia, Pa.), while Brian James (So., Sunrise, Fla.) came off the bench and scored UVa’s second goal. Madison tacked on an assist on Zinkhan’s early goal. The Cavaliers dominated p...

Skulls, Scores, Swains and Swells - Only SF Opera Tells
Huffington Post - over 4 years
They ate chocolate skulls at the opening of the San Francisco Opera.  There. Now that we have confirmed that the opera opening is a ritualized tribal gathering, we can let you in on its secrets: the grandiloquent greetings, the frothy frocks, the swaggering swains, the delectable delights. And the magnificent main event of Mephistophelean music. And let you know that good prevailed over evil. Guests were welcomed to a green-carpeted City Hall adorned by celebrity party personage Colin Cowie. This was Cowie's first turn as decormeister for this particular party, and he made sure to summon a spectacle. Following the theme of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," the rotunda of City Hall was bathed in emerald light, ringed with trellises and topiaries and adorned with all manner of flora and feathers. In the North Light Court, all-too-lifelike garden statues held their pose and human butterflies flitted amongst the air kisses and champagne bubbles. Cocktails and dinner were desig...

David Finkle: First Nighter: Tina Howe, Alan Zweibel Take 59E59 Theatre's "Summer Shorts" One-Act Cake
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The old saw about saving the best for last is honored during Summer Shorts 2013 at 59E59. The Series A post-intermission, entry is Tina Howe's goofy "Breaking the Spell" about a princess who isn't Sleeping Beauty but who's nevertheless been sleeping for 100 years. The Series B post-intermission entry is Alan Zweibel's touching "Pine Cone Moment" about two widowed seniors who share new-found love through their computers. The loopy Howe piece, totally unexpected in light of her delicately intense previous work, has the King (Michael Countryman) of an unspecified fairy tale land concerned that if he finds no one is his kingdom (or elsewhere) to awaken sleeping non-beauty daughter Christabel (Crystal Finn) by the end of the final week, a witch's curse will go into effect and the realm's entire population will die. With the help of his Poor Wretched Fool (Evan Shinners), also known as PWF, he's watched thousands of would-be saviors troop through his snoozing daughter's ch...

Garrett Goodman: How Local Media Earn Extra Through Events
Huffington Post - over 5 years
Local and regional media houses are using their events strategies to earn extra revenue and build their brands. Is this alternative profit generator worth closer consideration from struggling news outlets? Here are some things you might not know about editorial events: The Economist has a global operation devoted to organizing conferences that pulled in £10 million last year. The Chicago Tribune will produce more than 100 events this year, with up to four happening in a week. Swedish regional newspaper Norran was able to double sponsorship revenue from one client through events. Philadelphia startup Technically Media generated 40 percent of its revenue from events this year, up from only 12 percent last year. Commercial Benefits to Reaching Out In a recent look at efforts of news organisations to extract revenue from audience engagement, I highlighted one use case focusing on events from Swedish regional newspaper Norran.

Ones To Watch - Funeral Suits
Clash - over 5 years
These four Dubliners aren’t lacking in passion: “It’s hard for ordinary people to understand that this is our fucking life. It’s not whowe are, it’s whatwe are,” says multi-instrumentalist Brian James. “If we do get a bad review or even if someone says something a little bit negative I personally just fucking flip out,” he continues. Thank God this is a Ones To Watch piece then. They formed four years ago, using a disused office block as a studio. There the band crafted their sound, fusing distorted guitars and throbbing synths together in a powerful eardrum assault. After recording an EP Brian emailed esteemed producer Stephen Street, who has previously worked with The Smiths, Blur, and The Cranberries. “I just went on his ‘fan email’ section [of his website] and then a year-and-a-half later we’re walking out with an album,” he explains. And what an album ‘Lily Of The Valley’ is. Each member is proficient with many instruments so there are few limitations. ‘Colour Fad...
