There was I Do! I Do! in the 60s, and then there was the off-Broadway Daddy Long Legs, and a Good Company Players production of Daddy Long Legs is onstage at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater through September 12.

BritBox is an extraordinary streaming option for Anglophiles, and one of which I have been a member for a reasonable fee that you can choose to make monthly ($6.99) or annually ($69.99) for a discount. For several years I’ve enjoyed their extensive library, updated regularly, with access to decades-old favorites or “fresh out of lockdown” TV shows, mini series, and movies to meet my every mood: comedies, dramas, mysteries, or nail-biting police procedurals.

E3 is the most exciting time of year in the gaming world. Unfortunately, this year’s E3 was overall lackluster and disappointing. Because of this, I will only be talking about two of the conferences, the best conferences: the Xbox & Bethesda conference and the Nintendo conference.

Do you know what “serendipity” is? The word was coined from a Persian folktale, The Three Princes of Serendip, whose heroes succeed by luck and accident. It’s those little instants when things in the universe fall into place. Synchronicity. Chance. Happenstance.

The Academy Award-nominated film Minari (2020) tells the story of a family of South Korean immigrants who try to make it in the rural United States during the 1980s. There have been very few stories like that told on the big screen, but the truth of the matter is that there are so many accounts of immigrants coming to this country for a better life and to live the “American Dream.” They come from all walks of life and represent different cultures. That is one of the things that makes this country amazing.
