Pirates steal the show

By Eve Gleichman | March 19, 2007, midnight | In Entertainment »

Between their witty banter, over-the-top story lines and outrageous humor, Gilbert and Sullivan had "high-school-production" written all over their work. And good thing director Kelly O'Connor scooped the opportunity right up; with the hilarious "Pirates of Penzance," she, along with the cast and crew, nailed it all. Hurrah, hurrah!

Bowfire is smokin'

By Eve Gleichman | Jan. 29, 2006, midnight | In Music »

"First Impression of Earth" isn't quite out of this world

By Eve Gleichman | Jan. 18, 2006, midnight | In Music »

Well, one thing is for sure. After their last two nearly identical releases, The Strokes needed a change-up, and they needed one badly. It's not that there was anything wrong with what their sound, but by the 2003 release of "Room on Fire," it was clear that the next album would need to be more innovative and distinguished if these guys wanted to keep their fans close.

Blair ties New York school for most Intel semifinalists in the nation

By Eve Gleichman | Jan. 11, 2006, midnight | In Local »

All the president's men redux

By Eve Gleichman Alex Hyder | Dec. 6, 2005, midnight | In Features »

By now, you've probably heard something on the 6 o'clock news about a scandalous mess going on just across the Beltway. You've most likely read about it in your Washington Post, heard about it over the radio on your way to school and perhaps even talked about it in class. There has been a lot of clamor and hubbub about a case regarding New York Times journalists, investigations in Africa, uranium, undercover CIA agents and more finger-pointing than a Three Stooges film.

Follow your nose to the Red Dog Café

By Eve Gleichman | Nov. 29, 2005, midnight | In Restaurant Reviews »

By instinct, you may be reluctant to poke your head into any restaurant located on a street with such an unappealing name as "Grubb Road." But at the Red Dog Café, the cuisine does not merit association with the unfortunate address and certainly deserves some attention.

"Rent" kicks off a season of love

By Eve Gleichman | Nov. 28, 2005, midnight | In Movies »

It was only a matter of time before revolutionary rock-opera "Rent," was brought to the silver screen. Director Rob Marshall did it magnificently with his "Chicago," a production which earned six Academy Awards. And while director Chris Columbus may have trouble boasting the same for "Rent," the film doesn't do the Broadway musical anything short of justice.

A wicked "Harry Potter"

By Eve Gleichman | Nov. 20, 2005, midnight | In Movies »

The step up from a PG to PG13 rating was the first clue to a likely quantum leap of intensity with the 4th Harry Potter film in the series. But a movie so powerful that you can detect the heart rate of the person sitting next to you through a firm grip of their hand is another story, and one that is a reality with "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."

Making the cut

By Juliet Garlow Eve Gleichman | Oct. 30, 2005, midnight | In Print »

Okay, it's official; we have lost our trick-or-treating rights to old age. Instead of opening our hallowed plastic pumpkins for a handful of candy, we're opening our eyes and ears to disapproving looks and deep sighs from the neighbors who now toss the bite-sized Snicker bars - the ones that that should have gone to the kids behind us - into our bottomless bags. Our scavenging is on the brink of pathetic, and our lame endeavors show through our questionable made-from-whatever's-around-the-house costumes.

Senior class shirts delayed

Give us a break!

By Eve Gleichman Devon Madison | Oct. 12, 2005, midnight | In Op/Ed »

Remember that awful Diflucan commercial with the middle-aged women running up and down escalators in distress, all to the beat of the nauseating "Gotta Go"? theme music? Maybe you don't; after all, its infamy did put an abrupt halt to the annoying advertisement, and we haven't really seen much more of that campaign from the bladder fixer-upper. But now, whether wanted or not, we Blazers can't help but wonder why we constantly find ourselves singing the catchy jingle during the school day.

Weathering the storm

By Eve Gleichman | Oct. 6, 2005, midnight | In Features »

"New Orleans is no more." Senior Carl Fortenberry recalls the words his mother spoke the morning of Aug. 28 when Hurricane Katrina, a category four storm, hit Algiers Point, New Orleans, washing away the only home he had known for the past 18 years. By the time Katrina struck, Fortenberry had already left behind his extended family, his friends and his life to drive with his mother to Little Rock, Arkansas. Now, he is a student at Blair struggling to begin a new life.

Solid "Plans"

By Eve Gleichman | Sept. 12, 2005, midnight | In Music »

In 1967, the Beatles came out with "Magical Mystery Tour," a film that is still often described as something only a true Beatle fanatic could appreciate. The production is totally over the top, containing flashy scenery and performances which strongly suggest the combination of hallucinogenic substances and boundless imaginations. Among the wacky performances included in the film is a cut from the jazz-rock-comedy group, the "Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band," featuring their parodist, "Death Cab for Cutie." In the song, the group narrates a taxi accident, in the style of honky-tonk, turning an otherwise grim story line into a comedic routine. The song was made even stranger with the Beatles' decision to synchronize the audio with a striptease act by 1960's icon Jan Carson.

Black's Bar and Kitchen: Off the hook

By Eve Gleichman | Aug. 23, 2005, midnight | In Restaurant Reviews »

Not often does one find sixteen varieties of fresh oysters on the menu of a somewhat hidden restaurant in the middle of a busy town. At Black's Bar and Kitchen, these fresh oysters are only a fraction of the seafood options on the menu, and the rest is equally impressive. The bill may not be easy on the teen wallet, but it sure seems worth it when you're served some of the freshest seafood in town.

A "noteworthy "album

By Eve Gleichman | Aug. 1, 2005, midnight | In Music »

With eleven years of establishment and six successful albums, InToneNation (ITN), Blair's student-run a cappella group, has made quite a name for itself. In this case, the name is "Leave a Message After the Tone," ITN's seventh and most recent release. The album is a live recording from May, complete with nineteen tracks which demonstrate the group's strengths and show their potential for the future.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Potter party

"Chocolate-covered frogs and Hagrid's Hot Cocoa!" a sign advertised in a very crowded basement. A daunting figure stood behind the counter, dressed in an ominous cloak and a painted white face, serving small children clad as wizards, witches, elves and even…You-Know-Who.

The White Stripes deliver

By Eve Gleichman | July 11, 2005, midnight | In Music »

"No I'm never, no I'm never, no I'm never gonna let you down now," Jack White promises in "The Nurse," a single from The White Stripes' latest release, "Get Behind Me Satan." He was true to his word. Though Jack and Meg White have held onto a reputation for producing unusual music, this eccentric pair has created an album that is truly in a unique world apart from any of their other releases.

"Aperture" opens eyes

By Eve Gleichman | July 11, 2005, midnight | In Books »

Aperture. The word, in this case, means a scope of some of the most imaginative pieces Blair students have to offer. This year, the literary magazine includes one hundred and four pages of poetry, prose, and even sheet music, paired with artwork and photography to make for a truly inspired and cohesive work of creativity.

Spoon-fed quality

By Eve Gleichman | June 8, 2005, midnight | In Music »

As 10:30 p.m. rolled around on June 3rd, the 9:30 club in Northeast DC was filled to capacity. The headlining act was Spoon, a band which began on an independent label, and has steadily gained notice since their premier on the popular teen television drama "The OC." Not only has the group undergone several facelifts since their first album release in 2002, but their recorded sound has become very methodical and calculated, and I was interested to see how this would translate on stage.
