Cee Lo Green – The Lady Killer

November 11th, 2010 by Amanda Nolan

Cee Lo Green, more famously known for his work as one half of Gnarls Barkley, is back with his third studio album, The Lady Killer, which dropped November 9. Ever since the first single from the album, “F*ck You” (or more appropriately titled “Forget You”), was dropped, the music industry was abuzz about Cee Lo, with good reason. The Lady Killer proves to be an album worth giving a listen. Cee Lo transcends the R&B label, with a sound that strikes as being more alternative. This isn’t Gnarls Barkley, and you won’t find anything similar to “Crazy” on the album’s fourteen tracks; however, that does not matter because The Lady Killer offers that great Cee Lo sound.

Theater Thursdays: Centerstage

November 11th, 2010 by Amanda Nolan

Baltimore Centerstage, the head of Maryland Theater, is now showing ReEntry, a powerful and heartwarming play involving the return of a Marine soldier to a life he left behind. Directed by KJ Sanchez, this acclaimed new play seeks to get inside the mind of a man who is trying to adjust going from battlefields to backyard barbecues. Sanchez took special attention to stories from real soldiers, and she used the material she gathered as a basis for her play.

Baltimore’s Centerstage prides itself in offering intelligent, bold interpretations of modern and contemporary plays, so ReEntry will definitely have the audience enraptured from the very beginning. Read the rest of this entry »

Wacky Wednesday: Edgar Allan Poe Gravesite

November 10th, 2010 by Allison Ebner

Author Edgar Allan Poe is highly revered in literature, the nation, and particularly his hometown of Baltimore. In fact, so revered that his gravesite attracts many on a typical drive through the city.

Poe was originally buried in 1849 in an unmarked grave. Today, that is far from the case. The marble monument is both unmistakable and unavoidable. The granite base itself measures 6 feet on each side. A bust of Poe sits atop the base, inscribed with the dates 1809 and 1849 and Poe’s name along the bottom.
