Why I Still Love The X-Files

Why I Still Love <em>The X-Files</em>

Chances are, you’ve had this experience: You loved something (or someone) deeply, intensely. It was a part of your world, a part of your heart, so much a part of your daily life that you sort of forgot how special it was. You forgot to appreciate it. You forgot to be grateful for it. And […]

‘Everyone is Always Playing a Role’: Q&A with Noni Hazlehurst on <em>A Place to Call Home</em>, Australia, and Acting

If you’ve linked to this page from the story at the Huffington Post, click here to find where the Q&A left off. I’m not keeping track, of course, but I have to tell you, this Q&A is among my favorites so far. After chatting with Noni Hazlehurst for forty-five minutes a couple of months ago (I waited to […]

<em>The X-Files</em>, Aliens, Comedy, Podcasts, and Spiders: My Super-Long Q&A with Dean Haglund

All right. Let me geek out here a little bit. Back in the day, that day being the late 90s and early 00s, when The X-Files was in its initial airing, I was a huge fan. And I still am. I still think it was one of the best shows ever made. So about a year ago […]

“I Couldn’t Imagine Doing Anything Else”: Q&A with <em>Poldark’s</em> Ruby Bentall

I’m so delighted to have had the chance to interview a number of the fabulous actors who are starring in the BBC show Poldark, an 18th-century British drama based on the first two Poldark novels by Winston Graham. (Poldark aired in the U.S. on PBS). Here I continue these interviews in a Q&A with the lovely Ruby Bentall, who plays Verity Poldark, […]

The Passerine Project: Bridging Brooklyn and Afghanistan Through Song

It’s easy to take for granted the things we’ve never been without. If we have two healthy legs, we don’t think about what it means to be able to run and walk and jump. If our lungs work well, we don’t give a second thought to being able to breathe. But what about story? Those […]

“I Want to Be Challenged Every Day”: Q&A with <em>Poldark’s</em> Heida Reed

  If you watched the BBC show Poldark this year (which aired in the U.S. on PBS), you’re not alone; the 2015 remake of the 1970s hit series is attracted huge numbers of viewers around the world, all of whom are eagerly awaiting the second season of the show, set to air in 2016. And, of course, one of the things […]

“Work Hard, Stay Humble, Be Kind”: Fashioning a Dream and a Positive Message

  “Fashion doesn’t always have to scream. Sometimes it’s just a whisper, softly telling the world that I am here and I am beautiful.” ~ Love & Bambii Britney Keeler thought she was going to be a physician. Instead she’s an entrepreneur of a fashion line with a message of kindness and a goal to […]

Nuts for Tourism: Q&A with the Banff Squirrel on Twitter and Visiting Banff/Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies

Twitter can be an odd place. You might even say that sometimes it’s downright nuts. And that’s just fine for the Banff Squirrel, who runs one of the most engaging and entertaining tourism accounts on Twitter. Tweets from @Banff_Squirrel, the account for Banff Lake Louise Tourism, are written by a squirrel that popped up–literally–in 2009 (see […]

The Reckoning, the Rumble, the Revolution: Brené Brown’s <em>Rising Strong</em>

Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending–to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, Yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will choose how the story ends. Brené Brown, Rising Strong “No one could […]
