"The Directors Chair Island Arts Expo" was a great success!!!!
I loved every minute of it and the week flew by. I want to thanks all the performers, filmmakers, artists and Crew. Without all of you, this event would not have been possible. Most of all I want to thank CTV and Kenny Graham. He has been a rock through all of the craziness and it is he who kept me going.
As the directors Chair Festival winds down, I find myself thinking about what it means to be an artist on Staten… Continue

I thought this was America, where people have a say in what happens in this country. I guess I am much too naive in believing that. The people spoke twice by voting for term limits. Billionaires decide they know what is best for us and decide to lift that ban. How is Doomberg going to guide us in NYC through this financial crisis when he was in office during the whole debaucherous raid on our banks, housing and retirement savings? He didn't stop that from happening. I read the articles and I… Continue

This past weekend Lance Reha of Lake Films had the premiere screenings of his latest three movies. It was invitation only and the place was packed. Everyone was excited to see his latest efforts. First up was Dylan's Tree which featured Frank Albanese who is always great and gives a chilling perfomance here. Rocco Cherichella gives a credible turn as Dylan. Dylan uncovers a family truth that may be interlaced with his bloodline. Next up was Bullet, which proved to be the most intense of the… Continue

There is a great show playing at Snug Harbor called The Irish And How They Got That Way. The performers are great. The singers and musicians are topnotch. I just saw the show yesterday and really enjoyed it. If you would like to see a talented group of performers put on a really good show, right here on SI I might add, go see this. You won't be disappointed. I think it is playing this weekend and next so go check it out.

Posted this on SicoLab and Myspace as well, but might as well share the love on this website, which is looking pretty nice!
Basically, the College of Staten Island is having a battle of the bands to pick an opening act for the Ingrid Michaelson show on OCT. 29. Seems like a great gig for any local band, as she should draw a bit of a crowd, right? I've attatched the application form for bands, DUE FRIDAY, to my… Continue

Some thoughts about Sarah Palin
I would like say something about Sarah Palin. Before I do I want to make clear my position on the abortion issue. I have the greatest respect for those who are pro life. I believe that the vast majority of them act out of feelings of compassion and a true reverence for life. My problem is seeing the issue made a political football, used by pandering politicians to garner votes. That said, about Ms. Palin. She has defined herself, in no uncertain terms as… Continue
