I have always loved a good family drama, but the director duo Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert have created an insanely fantastical take on these broken dynamics in their new film Everything Everywhere All At Once, which was released in the U.S. on March 30th, 2022. The duo finds a way to encompass the fragility, rigidity, and complex nature of human emotion through a conversation of the multiverse.

Richmond’s food scene is making a comeback amid the still-lingering pandemic. As former pop-ups like Pizza Bones and Cobra Burger grow into their new brick-and-mortar spaces, others make names for themselves. Daniel Harthausen’s labor of love, Young Mother, is a newcomer to the scene.

On a cold winter day in November, people flocked to the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC to witness something spectacular and special, the Hanifa’s Inaugural Fashion Show called Dream. The brand Hanifa is created by Anifa Mvuemba, a fashion designer based in Maryland. During the 2020 lockdown, she became well known throughout the fashion industry with a 3D digital fashion show called the Pink Label Capsule that gained worldwide recognition.
The newest single from The Dune Flowers, a D.C. based project created by songwriter Tyler Drager, may at first seem like a departure from their characteristic sound. Where songs off their self-titled album rely on clean guitar tones and easy going, catchy ear-worms, “Tired of Being Nothing” employs more electronic elements and experimental production.

This article is intended for readers 21+. The ambiance is the first thing that stands out when you enter. Old soul classics played in the background. The interior was gorgeously decorated by Megan Lee Hopkins, the owner. The decor reflects her personality – inviting, inclusive, and knowledgeable. There was a constant crowd during the 3 hours we were there; I highly recommend calling in advance to reserve a table.

Highlights of the show included a guitar- specifically a newer-model Fender Jazzmaster- being thrown into the audience, cheesy dad jokes while frontman Dominic Palermo fixed his pedals, and yours truly getting right up in the band members’ faces for pictures.
I’ve always had a special connection to Euphoria. Trans representation was hard to come by, and while great shows like Pose existed at the time, there wasn’t any show besides Euphoria that spoke to my experience as a trans youth.

Recently, I had the pleasure of going to see Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho. It tells the story of a fashion student named Ellie starting her freshman year of college in London. After roommate troubles, she rents a room with an elderly landlady named Ms. Collins. After moving in, her dreams at night tell the story of a girl named Sandy, who lived in the very same room back in the sixties.
