November 2015 - The Sports Connection - Joe Quesada

We all know Craigslist as a place to shop for used video games and the like, but did you know a few lucky people find their dreams on Craigslist? Joe Quesada did. He answered a simple ad in 2007 looking for pro-wrestlers. Before he knew it, he was learning how to fall and take a hit as safely as possible. In 2008, he framed his first pay day from pro-wrestling, a five-dollar-bill. This is not a hobby you take up for the money. You take it up for the love of wrestling. Hours, months, years of continual training go into being a pro-wrestler. Accidents and injuries are part of the experience. Joe has a scar in his shoulder from one wrestling event with friend, Donny Amsterdam. In the same event

November 2015 - Now Showing - The Martian

It was date night for the mister and me and he was adamant that we see The Martian. He just read the book, loved it, and needed to see if the movie would hold up to what he read.

November 2015 - Extras - Nutcracker on the Rocks

The holidays in December are a time to hold up traditions, like going with family members to watch The Nutcracker. But aren’t all traditions, like rules, meant to be broken, or perhaps, at least bent? Shari Greenburg of Keshet Dance Company bent the rules on a classic when she dreamed up a way to showcase different music and dance styles with her Nutcracker on the Rocks. “My vision was to create a modern classic out of the traditional gem. I chose rock and roll music and incorporated a range of dance styles to infuse the production with a fresh, high-energy feeling that would be engaging for audiences of all ages,” says Greenberg. Keshet Dance Company, which brings together both professional
