You hear the tapping sounds on a ride cymbal, the strums of a guitar, then chiming in is a funky bassline, accompanied by a second riff from a guitar, this continues on and builds up until you hear a guttural and primal scream shouting, “Are you ready?” These are the rhythms and lyrics stitched to the song “Blind,” that belongs to the band, Korn.

My father was a good man. Tall and lanky, kind and good humored. He truly had a dog who loved him. During the four short weeks my dad bravely fought a losing battle with Stage 4 Lung Cancer, Miss Cocoa never left his side. When we brought him home from the hospital, I thought Cocoa was going to implode from excitement.

In the culinary world, the term “secret menu” by definition is exclusive knowledge that’s unknown to the majority of the public. It is known only to those select few who are aware of certain items that are not on the everyday menu of their favorite eateries. It’s very much a VIP thing. Well, here in the Central Valley, there’s a secret menu of food out there from an establishment that is gradually gaining attention through word of mouth.

Going Rogue.
In zoology, it’s an elephant going against the herd and attacking man and animal alike. In politics, it means breaking party lines and going against the rules. In Fresno, it’s having a good time, going to a bunch of shows in the Tower District in March.

A languid tear rolls down the young man’s rugged face.
“My daughter loves these videos,” says my friend, holding her phone in front of my eyes. “She’s transfixed by the feeling.”
That was the teardrop of an idea that became my one-woman play, Freeloader in the House of Love, which opens on Friday, March 6 at 6:45 at Goldstein’s at the Fresno Rogue Festival. The show won the SOLD OUT Award at the San Francisco Fringe and BEST STORY Award at the Boulder Fringe.

Suppose you were an Englishwoman in 1922, vaguely unsatisfied with your marriage, and you saw an ad for an Italian castle for rent for the month of April? Wouldn’t that intrigue you?

Growing up in a very religious Orthodox Jewish family, I didn’t know any non-Jews until I got to college. However, I was lucky enough to have an uncle who made me watch Sunday morning televangelists. He thought it was ludicrous, absurd theater, and I sat there transfixed and inspired. As a kid, I would jokingly lay hands on and provide healings to my friends.

Rogue Festival Preview: The Magic of Eric

by Eric Hiett


At the age of 7, I, Eric Hiett, became fascinated with magic. Owning a couple books, I was able to put a show together to perform before some friends in the neighborhood. My first real show was when I was twelve and in the eighth grade and performed before the entire school. Everything went wrong and ended up more as a comedy show than a magic show. I continued practicing magic and when I entered college, I was performing before fraternities, sororities, and other college organization.
