Greg Laswell: Touring Through Toledo

Brianne Joggerst
When his wife left him without notice, Greg Laswell, an indie-pop artist with a sound reminiscent of Matt Nathanson, turned to music to cope with his loss. The resulting album, Through Toledo, shares his story of grief and loneliness with smooth vocals and soothing melodies.

Although most of Laswell’s lyrics are melancholy, he expertly contrasts this tone with an upbeat sound.

A license to thrill: Shyamalan's suspense is killing us.

His work has scared, confused and angered millions. Since the 1999 release of The Sixth Sense, M. Night Shyamalan has introduced a line of suspenseful supernatural films with tension and winding plot lines.

Shyamalan was born in India and raised in the Philadelphia area. All six major films by the 35-year-old screenwriter and director have been set in Pennsylvania. His interest in filmmaking began when he was 8 years old and stemmed from his love for Steven Spielberg films. By the time he was 17, he had created 45 home videos.

Countering the culture clash: A young woman journeys from the middle east to the mideast and back again.

She dreaded telling her mother about her tattoo.

The two-inch butterfly stains the ivory skin on her upper left shoulder, its delicate blue and orange wings pulled back in mid-flight. Conceived at Hollywood Rebel Tattoo Parlor in Columbia, the butterfly now lies dormant, wrapped in a cocoon of T-shirts and sweaters, shielded from any judging eyes that might condemn it.

Tattoos aren’t exactly common among Palestinian women in the Middle East. But then, Reem Alhamid has never really fit in.
