October 2nd, 2012 by Jordan Hernandez

Tuesday, October 9 at 7:00 PM
1711 N. Charles Street

Filmed in more than twenty states, “The House I Live In” tells the stories of individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs. From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, the film offers a penetrating look inside America’s criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy. David Simon, creator of The Wire, will introduce “The House I Live In.” The film will be followed by a conversation with the director, writer and producer of “The House I Live In,” Eugene Jarecki, and Judge Andre Davis, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. The House I Live In is the winner of the 2012 Sundance Festival Grand Jury Prize for Documentary. This event is co-sponsored by the Maryland Film Festival and is part of OSI-Baltimore’s Talking About Race Series which continues to explore the many different facets of this complex subject. This event is free and open to the public.

Alex vs. Bread Pudding

Picture 1 of 1

Alex successfully defends her title at Hampdenfest 2012 by speed eating her way through an innocent piece of Cafe Hon’s amazing bread pudding, complete with caramel sauce and whipped cream. She toyed with the other competitors to make them feel like they had a chance and then crushed their hopes like they were little bugs. All hail Filiohno! And keep away when she’s hungry!

Sports Saturdays: The Last Stand for the Baltimore Orioles

September 29th, 2012 by Anthony Santiago

As the MLB season comes to a close soon, the Orioles are looking to extend their time at Oriole Park just a little longer. This weekend, the Orioles will be playing Division Rival Boston Red Sox.

Currently, the Orioles are in the heat of it all by being a game and a half back from the New York Yankees for first place in the American League East.

This homestead follows an incredible week for the Birds. They won six straight in a row in extra innings. The heart and fight that the players are giving happen to be so enduring for Baltimore natives and Oriole fans who have not had the opportunity to see a postseason game in more than 5 years.
