Classical violinist Sarah Chang discusses music, early life

(02/03/16 11:01pm)

World-renowned classical violinist Sarah Chang started playing the violin when she was four-years-old. At age six, she auditioned for and was accepted to the Pre-College Division of the Juilliard School in New York City, which played a major role in her musical development. By the time she was eight, she had debuted with the New York Philharmonic and quickly became known internationally.

"Anomalisa" (2015) enlightens the everyday

(02/01/16 12:00am)

After three years of intense craftsmanship, Charlie Kaufman returns with his unique blend of cerebral revelry and metaphysical, sympathetic protagonists in his 2015 film “Anomalisa.” After his meta-cinematic, surrealist style reached its apotheosis in “Synecdoche, New York”(2008), Kaufman tempers his typically impenetrable psychosomatics to create the most accessible and haunting film of his illustrious career.

Confessions of a gallery attendant

(02/01/16 12:00am)

You wonder about us every time you head to Hinman to pick up the basic life necessities you ordered off of Amazon because CVS is basically in a different country. You make uncomfortable eye contact with us while you’re fast-walking towards the tender queso wrap that you’ve been dreaming about since breakfast. You’re dying to know what our job actually consists of, who we are and whether or not we just saw you checking out your reflection in the glass. So today, in an unprecedented step, I will bridge the gap between the mysterious elite glass box-sitters and the general Dartmouth public: I am a Hopkins Center for the Arts gallery attendant and these are my confessions.

Book Review: ‘Of Gods, Royals and Superman’ (2015)

(01/26/16 11:01pm)

Alumnus Tom Maremaa ’67’s most recent novel, “Of Gods, Royals and Superman” (2015), might hit a little close to home for some of his fellow sons and daughters of Dartmouth — it follows Christopher Reed, president of the fictional fraternity Quad Alpha, after his expulsion from the College on account of his brotherhood’s especially creative methods of ensuring their new members’ loyalty, a practice colloquially referred to as “hazing.” The Dean of the College tells Reed that he has six months to “do something great” if he wants to stand a chance of graduating with the rest of his class — so off he goes to “save starving children,” a phrase tossed around by probably every single character to whom he explains his situation. I, for one, immediately thought he should travel across the country; first, with the cast of a Mark Twain drama troupe and later, the film crew for a Superman remake, before settling down and working in a restaurant for a few months to really learn the value of hard work. We can take bets, if you want.

The Harlequins perform musical revue in Bentley Theater

(01/24/16 11:22pm)

This past Saturday an ensemble of students known as The Harlequins performed a self-produced musical revue in the Bentley Theater. Aptly titled “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Bentley” (a reference to the Stephen Sondheim musical “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”), the revue was an intimate affair in which the cast, solo or in pairs, sang selected numbers from classic musicals such as “Grease” (1971), “Sweeney Todd” (1979) and “Seussical: The Musical”(2000).

'Joy' (2015) is too busy to find its core, features usual suspects

(01/24/16 11:20pm)

David O. Russell returns with his usual suspects — Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, who co-starred in “Silver Linings Playbook” (2012) and “American Hustle” (2013) — for another hyperactive, improvisational dramedy in “Joy” (2015). The film is loosely based on the real life story of Joy Mangano, the New Yorker mom turned inventor and entrepreneur known for her household designs such as the self-wringing Miracle Mop and no-slip Huggable Hangers.
