Trivium Takes Local Talent & Tours the World
Interview by Andrew Winninger / Photos by Andrew Winninger + Courtesy of Trivium
Much of life is being in the right place at the right time and that’s what happened for Paolo Gregoletto. He grew up in Pompano Beach, going to St. Coleman’s and eventually Cardinal Gibbons in Ft. Lauderdale, playing in bands both in and out of school along the way. That’s where we met, actually – high school jazz band.
He was one of those kids who you knew could be something if given the chance: god-given talent and a work ethic to match; not to say we didn’t do our fair share of screwing around in Mengerson’s 6th period jazz class. Anyways, it culminated with Metal Militia, a local favorite who’d frequently play haunts like The Culture Room and The Chili Pepper back when it existed. Unfortunately the local music scene wasn’t strong enough to support a career and who really wants to be known as the best metal band in Ft. Lauderdale? So he was forced to make a choice between the safe bet in college or giving his dreams of becoming a rock star one last shot.

Angela Yungk: We wanted to start out with your music career, and say congratulations on your Grammy win! Tell us about how it felt to get the award.
Malcolm-Jamal Warner: Thank you! Well it’s funny—when I first got the nomination the first thing that my mother said to me was, ‘Look baby, it only took you twenty years to get a nomination!
The Magic of Margaret

Jessie Prugh: The narrative of your unconventional life reads like a beloved underdog story—a young Korean-American girl, that against all odds, was true to herself and paved the way to her own success to become a star. What possessed you to put yourself out there and do stand-up comedy at the ripe young age of 14?
Margaret Cho: I needed to escape being a child. I have had a long history of abuse, and at that point I was done with being a kid. I knew that I wanted to be a comedian, and I had dreams about it—very vivid ones that are exactly like what it feels like to perform now. On stage, nothing bad could happen to me because I had witnesses. I love that little brave girl I was. I am grateful.
A Conversation with the Illustrator-Turned-Actor.

Angela Yungk: We know that you started your career early on as an illustrator—how did you get started in the visual arts?
Michael Emerson: I moved to New York, when I got out of college, hoping to be an actor and I couldn’t figure out how to do it, and after a few years of knocking around and having retail jobs I thought, ‘there must be something I can do as a creative outlet for myself.’ I had always been able to draw pictures so I took some weekend courses at the Parsons School of Design and I guess I was just arrogant enough to go and try to make a living out of it, which is what I did for quite a few years.
The Art of Podcasting: Over 10 Years of the Medium
By Adam Kerry
Earlier this year when “King of All Media”, Howard Stern, went on a “podcasts are for losers” rant during his Sirius radio show, his listeners most likely fell into one of three camps: those that agreed, those that disagreed, and those left asking,“What exactly is a podcast?” The fact remains that most people have never downloaded a podcast despite the nearly doubling in popularity since 2008. The podcast medium is growing along with accessibility. Anyone with a smartphone or computer can access hundreds of thousands of podcasts anywhere, ranging from general comedy, celebrity interviews, sports talk, human interest stories, all the way to ultra specific niches like episode by episode analysis of the 90’s children’s horror anthology series Goosebumps.

7 Must-See Museum Exhibitions

The history of Florida can be traced back to when Native Americans first began to inhabit the peninsula as early as 14,000 years ago, bringing with them the culture of crafts and decoration and display as evidenced in South Florida archaeological digs. It is likely that these tribes also were the first collectors, assembling items outside the protective, homesteaded man cave, only to later pile organic stuff inside to later sort out their findings like seasoned curators into recognizable categories. Whatever the motivation, these primitive documented gathering practices sank slowly and deeply into their double-spiral DNA, which have been passed down to modern day cultures that have kept the collecting bug alive and well. Florida is nicknamed the “Sunshine State” due to its warm climate. The combination of great weather, sandy beaches and a tropical paradise has continued to attract vacationers from around the world and a growing number of permanent residents since the early 20th century. Until the invention of Freon for air conditioning and DDT for pesticides, winter months were tolerable only for short visits. Now, Florida is very much a full-time, year round community that last year surpassed New York State in population, and as a result, there’s been an amazing surge of expanding museums and cultural institutions that for the most part are located along the eastern coastline, from Palm Beach to Miami.
THE INSIDE OUT PROJECT
“JR exhibits freely in the streets of the world, catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors. In 2006, he created Portrait of a Generation, portraits of suburban “thugs” that he posted, in huge formats, in the bourgeois districts of Paris. This illegal project became “official” when the Paris City Hall wrapped its building with JR’s photos. In 2007, with Marco, he made Face 2 Face, the biggest illegal exhibition ever. JR posted huge portraits of Israelis and Palestinians face to face in eight Palestinian and Israeli cities. In 2008, he embarked on a long international trip for Women Are Heroes, in which he underlines the dignity of women who are often the targets of conflicts, and created The Wrinkles of the City. In 2010, his film Women Are Heroes was presented at Cannes. In 2011 he received the TED Prize, after which he created Inside Out, an international participatory art project that allows people worldwide to get their picture taken and paste it to support an idea and share their experience.”- www.insideoutproject.com
