We don’t have children, so sometimes we forget to write about the many activities that Montgomery has available for young ones, particularly in the summer. (Note: If you are interested in covering the array of child-friendly events around Midtown, check out last week’s post about how to write for our site). That’s why we wanted […]

   “The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted; beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien I have long been a lover […]

This month I helped plan a surprise party. We had a dozen guests and wondered what restaurant would best accommodate that many on a Saturday night. Someone suggested Yokohama which they said had private rooms you could reserve. This seemed like a good idea; we love Japanese and most of us had never been there. […]

It has been a few years since we wrote about our favorite local “weird noise maker,” Jeff McLeod. Back in 2015, we talked about the diverse set of musical projects from McLeod that drove us to go see a performance at The Sanctuary (432 S. Goldthwaite). Before that, we were writing up his confrontational and […]

Studio Ghibli Comes to Montgomery

Studio Ghibli Comes to Montgomery

The first Studio Ghibli film I experienced was Spirited Away after it won Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards in 2003. I was instantly enchanted by the multiple worlds created by filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki filled with lush visuals and complex characters. This was a different kind of animated movie; it was profound and […]

The Cloverdale Playhouse’s production of August Wilson’s play Fences opened in Montgomery the same weekend as the National Memorial for Peace and Justice. This is a momentous moment for our city, a call to confront the horrors of the past and to push forward towards change. Wilson’s plays have been awarded multiple Pulitzer Prizes for […]

“The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot ever fence it out.” -J.R.R. Tolkien Our current production at the Playhouse, August Wilson’s Fences, is one of our biggest undertakings yet. It is not our largest cast, nor is it our most intricate set (though the set is quite […]
