Wando High students to take part in National School Walkout against gun violence on March 14

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 16:45:00 -0500

Students at Wando High School in Mt. Pleasant are planning a walkout in favor of stricter gun control laws on March 14 following a shooting at a high school in South Florida that left 17 students dead last week.

The walkout will coincide with the National School Walkout, an event sponsored by the national Women's March organization in which students are encouraged to walk out of their buildings for 17 minutes, one minute for every person killed at Marjory Stoneman-Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. on Wed. Feb. 14.

Jonathan Hudson, an 18-year-old senior at Wando High, says he is working on organizing the protest with fellow senior Lauren Insinger, 18, and one teacher.

"Our aim is to stand in solidarity with our fellow students in Parkland, Fla. and ask those who represent us both on a state and national level to step across the aisle to discuss school safety and gun safety," Hudson wrote in an e-mail to CP. more…

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 15:52:00 -0500

Local artist, taxidermist, and founder of design company Sisal Creative, Becca Barnet, is (clearly) a woman of many talents. In addition to the work she does for her own company, Barnet has lately been the designer of some pretty cool posters for the Charleston Music Hall. more…

Wellness Wednesday: A few tips for getting over the hump

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 15:45:55 -0500

Mid-week slumps happen to the best of us. Monday we grab our cold brews and face the world without a hint of trepidation — by Wednesday we need an IV of coffee and an extra 24 hours in the day. This Wednesday, or, hell, any Wednesday you're ready, recharge your batteries with these healthy, energizing food and drink options and then relax into a few calming activities. Let's make hump days happy again.

The Garbage Pail Kids Movie is one film you should not waste your time on

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 14:45:00 -0500

It's been over 30 years and I still don't understand why a film like The Garbage Pail Kids Movie exists. I remember wanting to see it during its brief run at the Pinehaven Cinema 6 and finally seeing it a year later on VHS. I enjoyed it somewhat I guess.

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 14:05:00 -0500

This morning, City Paper broke the news that that Charleston Wine + Food had announced a "Public Board Meeting" set for tomorrow, Thurs. Feb. 22, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. to address "a personnel matter."

Not three hours later, the Post & Courier reported that Randall Goldman, the CEO of Patrick Properties Hospitality Group and festival board member, filed an injunction request on Tuesday to stop the group from meeting, alleging that as a public body that receives government funding, the W+F board is in violation of the state Freedom of Information Act. more…

I’m an 18-year-old female. I’m cisgender and bisexual. I’ve been in a monogamous relationship with my cisgender bisexual boyfriend for about a year. I’m currently struggling with a lot of internalized biphobia and other hang-ups about my boyfriend’s sexuality.

2018's Charleston Jazz season — its 10th, by the way — is in full swing, starting this Sunday with a stellar lineup of concerts through December. And the best part is that you can still save 10 percent on each CJO concert (in honor of their 10 years, duh). more…

Stegelin: Too soon or too late to discuss guns?

After Another

How can we confront the horror of mass shootings when we refuse to look at them?

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

What happens when a bullet strikes a body? Yes, we know the basics: it enters and it exits. If the person being shot is a bad guy, it kills them on contact. And if the person is a good guy, they either shrug it off like one would a bug bite or they are able to deliver one last heartfelt soliloquy.

Saying no to sexism is the easiest thing you'll do today

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

Last week the Post & Courier ran an article, "Swipe Right: Managing the rhythms (and algorithms) of modern dating in Charleston." Before I even read through the piece I thought to myself, "Damn, bold move. It's really hard to write about dating."

Blotter: E.T.'s one phone home

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

Police reports presumably written by aliens: "commonly referred to as a 'blunt,'" "engage in fisticuffs."

When Mavis Staples says you're black, you're black

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

The title track of the great Mavis Staples' new album, If All I Was Was Black, is a stunning song. Over a raw, gritty R&B track that hearkens back to the early 1970s heyday of Al Green and Sly Stone, Staples, still a strikingly powerful voice at the age of 78, rides the song's infectious groove, asking "If all I was was black/ Don't you wanna know me more than that?"

DIY arts-music venue Tua Lingua makes a move

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

The best way to describe Tua Lingua is "Tua Lingua." The music venue/art gallery/place of perpetual experimentation has been a singular concept since its creation in 2014

With its unorthodox flavors, Tu can't be pinned down

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

Let's get real: Tu is cooler than me, and odds are it's got one up on you. That's okay though. As we all know, being seen with someone a little out of your league just improves your own mystique.

Instant Gratification demonstrates the lasting appeal of instant film

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

Ashley Jones still has the Polaroid camera that her parents gave her when she was young. She's held onto the first photo the camera took as well. Many years later, when a friend gave her an older model Polaroid, the pictures it produced gave her more than images. The camera built a new connection to her photographs.

Miller Gallery's latest exhibit embraces political messages and human connections

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

Gallerist Sarah Miller believes that art will change you, even if you don't believe it yourself. In her latest curated show, Miller has culled three seemingly disparate artists and works for one cohesive theme. "Art opens your eyes to different ideas, it sends a message without words," says Miller.

Village Repertory Company tackles the one percent in Dry Powder

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

The plot of Dry Powder, a 2016 play by Sarah Burgess, is relatively complex, largely because it deals with the world of high finance. A private equity firm president named Rick commits a social faux pas by throwing himself an extravagant party right after a series of massive layoffs at a grocery store that the firm invested in.

Remembering and recreating Muhiyidin d'Baha

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 04:00:00 -0500

During a Feb. 1 panel on the first year of Trump's presidency at the College of Charleston, the conversation turned to acts of defiance that, while in the present seem radical, are likely to go down in history as pivotal moments on the frontline of a cultural battle.
