    It’s Friday night at Jacques Underground and Sam Coren, the guitarist of local band Sleep Crimes, is shredding on her yellow Gibson SG special.

    Robin Williams found dead of apparent suicide

                            By Mary Whitfill, editor-in-chief On Monday afternoon, Robin Williams, actor and comedian, was found dead at his home in Tiburon, Calif. A statement issued by the police department in Marin County, Calif. suggests that the death was an apparent suicide by asphyxia. His publicist, Mara Buxbaum, confirmed that Williams had been suffering from depression. Williams was best known for his roles in popular films such as “Dead Poets Society,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Jumanji,” “Aladdin” and “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won the supporting actor Oscar. Most recently, he stared in the CBS comedy “The Crazy Ones” along side Sarah Michelle Gellar. In addition to his Oscar, William’s was the recipient of four Grammy Awards and two Emmy Awards for “Carol, Carl, Whoopi and Robin” and “ABC Presents a Royal Gala.” Two of Williams’s most recent works are in post production, “Merry Friggin’ Christmas” and “Absolutely Anything,” in which he voiced Dennis the Dog. “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” the third film in which he was slated to play Teddy Roosevelt, is currently filming, and the sequel to “Mrs. Doubtfire,” had yet to begin production. Williams got his start in improv comedy at open-mike nights after graduating from Claremont Men’s College and spending time at The Julliard School in New York. His first major role came from “Happy Days,” where he guest stared in 1978 and sparked spinoff series “Mork & Mindy.” In 2004, Williams wasRead More

New film brings women’s self-defense to light

Aug 17, 2014

In a softly-lit building with exposed brick, local film producer Nuria Ballmer watched the actors simulate self-defense techniques on set. These are easy moves, Ballmer said, that even her children learned in karate lessons, but she never had the opportunity to learn. Ballmer said that women’s education hasn’t changed much, in the sense that women are still not taught how to handle dangerous situations.

The flags along Forsyth whip lazily back and forth in the late afternoon breeze from the harbor while the summer sun slides down the sky, like the ice cream slowly dripping down the side of a little girl’s waffle cone. She’s standing next to the reflecting pool with her dad, watching her reflection ripple and giggling as he makes faces at her in the water. She wants to hold his hand, but hers is covered in vanilla ice cream. She licks a sprinkle off her pinky before it falls onto her pants and smiles up at her dad in triumph – it doesn’t matter that a few drops have already made their way from her chin onto the collar of her pink polo.
