    It’s a Sunday night, and I’m plowing through the latest AP Literature response paper. Sentence by sentence, I’m feeling good; the most brilliant nugget of analysis begins to flower in my mind… And then the serenity shatters. A sonic boom. It sounds like the boiler exploded, but the cul...

    Five o’clock in the morning and the phone was ringing. Bleary-eyed, Colin rolled over in his bed and reached out toward the night table with a groan. He missed a few times and slapped the wooden surface; eventually, he grabbed hold of the device and placed it against his ear as he sat up and yawne...

    FOR JUSTIN G. She sits alone in a bookstore café on the corner of Robertson and Dandelion, craving a divergence from her hectic life. A man enters the shop and plops down on the adjacent stool, simultaneously writing in a ledger-book. Her eyes dart for a glimpse. His black hair is streaked w...

    At a table for two outside the Ristorante Barbarossa, Rupert sat alone, sipping water from his glass and watching the cars as they passed by. A tall, handsome waiter approached. “Are you ready to order, sir?” “No,” Rupert said, smiling up at him, “I’m expecting someone. She’s run...

    I believe it was Sunday the 21st – yes, it was a Sunday, I’m sure of it – when tragedy struck on the set of Scintillation. Scintillation was a dangerous film to film, you see, for it details the life of a young author named Briant – but it’s not dangerous because it details the life of ...

    Here’s a little ditty for a dark November night: I could’ve died this summer. On my commute to work one early August morning, I turned a blind curve and encountered a truck barreling toward me on the wrong side of the road. My body reacted before my conscious mind could catch up; in the span ...

    On Thursday, March 31st, my uncle’s kind-spirited, witty and wonderful father David died suddenly in the early hours of the morning. Three days later, my family and I traveled into Manhattan for his funeral. It was my birthday. Of course I didn’t say anything to the mourners. They were there ...

    On a desolate two-lane thoroughfare in the middle of rural New York, a McDonald’s sits across the street from a Burger King. Strange, I know. One would think that fast food restaurants selling the exact same products would try to stay as far away from each other as possible. If you’re the o...

    For as long as we’ve been capable of philosophizing, we have searched for an answer to the world’s greatest existential mystery: the meaning of life. Go ahead, take a stab at it. You won’t be the first, and you certainly won’t be the last. The thinking man has tried to get a grasp on the ...

    There's a wonderful irony to the fact that the current epicenter of social culture was created by a sociopath. Director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin magnify this paradox to unnerving effect in “The Social Network,” a film that sympathetically yet caustically captures the recent...

    I don’t understand: what does Freddy Krueger have against teenagers? He seems to have a fetish for slicing up young adults rather than regular ones. And for that matter, so do most evil undead horror villains. Jason Voorhees kills naked teenagers in a lake. Michael Myers impales drugged-up teenage...

    My alarm rings each weekday morning at 6:30 AM., and then again at 6:35. It takes approximately four minutes for me to muster the strength to push myself out of bed, provided that I don’t immediately slip back into unconsciousness. I then pop out my retainer and commence my two-minute tooth brushi...

    Precious was the first movie ever to win both the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival. It’s a genuine crowd-pleaser, a work that can appeal to any population nationwide. Which is ironic, because it’s one of the most disturbing...

    Hearing your 9-year-old sister spout a graphic sexual euphemism is never really a pleasant experience. I’ve got to imagine it wasn’t any less painful for my mom to hear either. But it happened anyway, and it wasn’t the only time that I’ve heard some alarmingly vulgar expression fly out of my...
