Desiree Akhavan's first feature film, Appropriate Behavior, written and directed by and starring Akhavan, is generating major buzz. Akhavan was kind enough to make time to sit down with me on the day of her premiere at Lincoln Center. It's safe to say I don't think I've ever laughed this much during an interview.
I've been aware of Studmuffin NYC by Kyle Brincefield for a while, and I've been seeing his brand blow up this year. He was kind enough to hang out with me for a while, so I ended up with far more interview than space allows. Please check out the slideshow to learn more about all the things Kyle is working on right now.
I had the opportunity to come across Thomas Hill, the current grand slam champion of the D.C. youth slam team. His piece is featured in this video from the D.C. youth slam that happened back in February. Take a moment to take in the brilliance of this poet's work and check out more of his stuff on the interwebs!
