A Meridian Wedding

Okay, so I lied. I promised that by this time we'd have a new website/blog in operation but you what what happens to best laid plans. Hopefully by this time next month we'll be a little closer to that goal. And so we beat on, as F. Scott, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Out With the New...

A belated happy new year to you all.

This might be the last post on the blog, a journal we dubbed The Dark Slide many years ago in a nod to a long lost piece (and much maligned) of photographic equipment.

Come Fly with Me

Alan Wirth loves to fly. Meg Fromuth spends a lot of time at 37,000 feet on business trips to Africa. If you only read this far you'd probably conclude these guys were made for each other, which is true.

Only the Dead Know Brooklyn

So what's with the title? A bit of a downer for a wedding blog, no? Well, Only the Dead Know Brooklyn happens to be the title of a short story by Thomas Wolfe, written in 1925 for the New Yorker, which begins, "Dere’s no guy livin’ dat knows Brooklyn t’roo an’ t’roo..."

This past summer, when so many folks were anxiously waiting for the release of The Hangover Part II, a little, unheralded movie came along and pretty much stomped it into the ground. Let's face it--Bridesmaids was funnier, more disgusting (if that's a good thing), and touchingly bittersweet.

Let's Hear it for Hogwarts

Sarah McCalla and RJ Johnsen didn't actually get married at Hogwarts Academy, home to Harry, Hermione et al., but since this is the summer of the last film, and since St. Albans School has been open for a century now and has that long communal table look down pat, it almost feels like they did.

Philadelphia Freedom

Despite their last names, it may come as surprise to learn that neither Wendy Li or David McElhoe is Jewish. (I kid, needless to say, probably because I am.) But when their band launched into the Hora late in the evening at Stotesbury Mansion in Philadelphia last month...

School of Art

The great sixteenth-century Italian artist Benvenuto Cellini once wrote, "The art of sculpture is eight times as great as any other art based on drawing, because a statue has eight views and they must all be equally good."
