Most of us are familiar with the Dorian Gray classic story, a novel originally written by Oscar Wilde, full of hedonism and corruption.  Many variations of the story have been used in movies etc. but the underlying tale is that of a man who sells his soul in an effort to keep that which is most precious to him, his youthful looks and immortality.  A painted portrait of Dorian bears his true reflection and for every year and every sin, the portrait ages and becomes disfigured, all the while Dorian retains his youthful vanity.  What happens during his extended lifetime becomes the tale which has been explored through many scenarios down through the years.  Read More…

I met K. Douglas MacRae way back in the day when online fandoms consisted solely of mailing lists and IRC chat rooms.  Attending a Convention in Toronto, Canada, a small group of fans had come together to celebrate the original La Femme Nikita television series.  Although I was a Committee Chair for the Con, I was new to the fandom world and didn’t know much about the process of television production and behind the scene responsibilities. While checking in VIPs during the pre-event setup, I met an energy-filled production guy by the name of Doug.  Read More

A music critic I am not, but I do know what I like when I hear it.  That being said, there is a wide range of sounds that appeal to me which cross many genres and repertoires.  When launching At a Glance, I knew music was something I would include through feature interviews and discussion.

So to start us off on our first music interview, I’d like to introduce a band whose sound I really enjoy.  Evora is a five piece group originating from Dublin, Ireland.  They have just released a single and music video titled Tell Me Your Name from their upcoming album, Hurry Up Before I Die.  The album is in final production stages and will be out soon!  Read More

To dance.  To be able to leap through the air, stand on pointed toe and pirouette, and then gracefully float across a stage.  I have dreamed such dreams.  But in my waking hours, it is blatantly obvious that those types of movements for me personally, will be relegated to remain in my dreams.  Ah, but there are others, more blessed than I, who have that rare and impressive talent.

Teagan Lowe is one such individual.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Teagan for a while now.  She is petite, beautiful and everything you’d think a ballerina should be.  She is also strong, funny and an avid coffee drinker who happens to get distracted by shiny sparkly things.  Agreeing to chat with us, she graciously shared about her life in the dance world, the path she has traveled, as well as her goals and dreams.  Read More
