Hello,I hope that your spring sucks as much as mine does. I started a blog, Fear and Dread, Guilt and Shame. This Wednesday is very special because it's BACHELORETTE BLACKHOLE! There was an article in the Jersey Journal about it last week, so there's probably going to be a lot of guidos and old people there.It's a bachelorette party because I'M GETTING MARRIED! Dancing Tony MIGHT strip for us. He's being shy, but that's nothing a little drugs and harassment won't fix!BLACKHOLE WEDNESDAYJohn F.

Mana Fine Arts is pleased to host Mother of God: A Wonder Women Project presented by _gaia. The exhibition and residency explores notions of feminism, spirituality, historical iconographies, and contemporary art practice. The show brings together nine emerging artists from the New York/New Jersey area, invited to participate in the six-week residency at _gaia studio in Hoboken, New Jersey. The exhibition aims to examine and critique the societal, personal, and collective experiences of feminism and the history of organized religion.
The mother of a deity is an apt topic for a _gaia residency, sharing a consideration for feminism in all aspects of society. In critiquing the dominant role of biblical stories in western art, the Wonder Women residency remained committed to exploring feminism in this context. Many of the projects developed for this exhibition embrace a visual history that addresses Mary?s indispensable position in the pantheon of biblical characters. An instrumental part of the residency was the collection of texts brought to meetings each week.?Letter to a Christian Nation, by Sam Harris and?Erring: A Postmodern A/Theology,?by Mark C. Taylor, among other texts were both a catalyst and inspiration for discussion. By critiquing religious structures, the resident artists opened a dialogue about the existence of one all-powerful, all-knowing god, the gods and goddesses of polytheism and a universal understanding of motherhood.
Mother of God coincides with the year long Feminist Art Project. The purpose of the Feminist Art Project is to bring public attention to the significant and continuing impact of women and their art on all aspects of contemporary art practice, highlighting their international influence, and guaranteeing their inclusion in the cultural record, past, present, and future.

Classic NOIR Cinema At The Loew's Jersey - This Friday & Saturday, M
Posted by: "solan"
Tue Mar 27, 2007 8:45 am (PST)
Ask someone off-handedly what to expect in a Hollywood block-buster,and they are likely to include Technicolor and a happy ending. Butmovies of the Film Noir genre belie this – they are black and white,dark literally and metaphorically, with characters that are deeplyflawed if not outright criminal, and they don't have happy endings.Yet some of the best known films of all time are Film Noir. And threeof the best Noir movies will be shown at the Loew's on March 30 & 31.Double Indemnity – Friday, March 30 at 8PMStarring Barbara Stanwyck, Fred MacMurray, Edward G. Robinson.Directed by Billy Wilder. (1944, 107mins., B&W, Paramount. Predatesrating system, but may not be suitable for children.) Double Indemnityrepresents the high-water mark of 1940s film noir urban crime dramasin which a greedy, weak man is seduced and trapped by a cold, evilwoman amidst the dark shadows and Expressionist lighting of modern cities.There will be a brief introduction to the film, and a Q&A sessionafterwards by Charles Stanton, devotee of and expert in the Film Noirgenre.Out of the Past – Saturday, March 31 at 4PMStarring Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Kirk Douglas, Rhonda Fleming.Directed by Jaques Tourneur. (1947, 97mins, B&W, RKO, Predates ratingsystem, but may not be suitable for children.) Out of the Past is soperfect a Film Noir that it is considered practically a textbookexample of the genre. Robert Mitchum, who was cast after both JohnGarfield and Dick Powell turned down the part of Jeff Bailey, wonpraise for his first starring role. Kirk Douglas and Jane Greer as thelethal femme fatale both also turned in great performances.Sunset Boulevard – Saturday, March 31 at 7:30PMStarring Gloria Swanson, William Holden and Erich Von Stroheim.Directed by Billy Wilder. (1950, 110mins, B&W, Paramount. Predatesrating system, but may not be suitable for children.) In itscinematography, style and dark outlook, Sunset Boulevard is classicNoir. But the film's main characters are not the detectives, gangstersand typical vamps who inhabit most Noir movies. Instead, the moviepresents the users and used in show business, and is a scathing satireof Hollywood and the cruel fickleness of movie fame. Director Wilderturned Hollywood history back on itself by casting silent film starGloria Swanson as aging silent diva Norma Desmond and the great silentdirector Erich von Stroheim as her. There will be an introduction and discussion of the film by Dr. FosterHirsh, Professor of Film at Brooklyn College and author of 16 books onfilm and theatre including "The Dark Side of the Screen: Film Noir."Dr. Hirsh is also the host for American Film Institute tributes in NewYork.Each screening is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors & children 12 yearsold and younger. Combo discounts for two or more screenings areavailable.
