Two for Tuesday: Two...

Social media provides a place for us all to be heard. In our joys and grief, we share, we express and we make our point. We see the poignant–like Jim Carrey’s response to the death of the bright creative light, Philip Seymour Hoffman: Dear Philip, a beautiful beautiful soul. For the...

Two for Tuesday: Two Different Movies, One Message Jan14

Two for Tuesday: Two...

I love movies. Like–I love them ferociously. I believe in the power of film to not simply entertain and inspire, but to perhaps even change an audience’s paradigm completely. With that in mind I bring you today’s Two for Tuesday. The two films Don Jon and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty are...

Throwback Thursday: Dick Clark, Daft Punk and Everything In Between Jan02

Throwback Thursday: ...

Happy New Year Our Space Readers! I can hardly believe that it is 2014. Dang – the years keep ticking by! I can remember celebrating New Years Eve with Chicago’s music countdown on WLS all the way back to 1977 when Kansas’ “Dust in The Wind” was in the lineup. I...

Throw Ho Ho Back Holiday Movie Thursday Dec12

Throw Ho Ho Back Hol...

Now it’s just starting to get suspicious. First I was given technology repeatedly as a topic perhaps to feature my aged ignorance, and now I am consistently offered these Throwback opportunities as if I can ONLY really discuss things of bygone years. It’s okay Cassandra–-I am not offended. I...

Throwback Thursday: ...

As a person who is passionate about the arts and entertainment, I am convinced that we can change entire generations through the arts and all forms of “entertainment.” Certainly there is entertainment that is far from influencing for the greater good. The stupid crap on Disney channel comes...

Trending News Monday...

For some, the immediate response was panic, near terror. Hearts and minds began to race at the possible implications as millions scrambled to try and reach loved ones. Were they okay? Were they victims of the isolation, too? It is Halloween time – and well, for some, would their most...

Throwback Thursday: ...

It’s Throwback Thursday here at Our Space, and guess what, I am writing about technology. Again. How does this happen? It seems statistically unlikely that the two times in a month that I post, I am allotted the same topic. It’s like a cruel joke. Nevertheless, let me start by...

Two Tech Talk Points...

Tech Talk This is what I get for starting this whole Our Space business–getting stuck as the old lady in the crowd to talk about technology. I am of the generation who still writes texts in whole sentences and at least tries to make sure that everything is grammatically correct. I don’t...

Throwback Thursday: ...

Hey, Our Space readers! Welcome to Throwback Thursday where today we are tackling the topic, art and design. Those of you who have been around for awhile have often heard me say that regardless of our advances in technology, aside from any app or program that can aid the process, creativity...

Two for Tuesday: Bot...

I want to take you on a rabbit trail. It seems to me that the best creative, the most interesting discoveries, often happen quite on accident. Such is the case with this Two for Tuesday. My assignment was to write an article about art and design. And it is. But then, it’s something else too....

Fun Friday: The Best...

I took the liberty of changing today’s theme from Funny Friday to Fun Friday. Let me tell you why… I am not feeling very funny, and, honestly, there is nothing more excruciating to endure than forced humor. While I may not be feeling funny, my desire for FUN is at a peak. It’s...

Throwback Thursday: ...

I’m super excited to be bringing you a Throwback Thursday. I was committed to the Funny Friday “Punk’d” thing for a while, but I am ready for something new! If you haven’t watched the videos from our Punk’d series, you should. They’re fun. Something else that’s fun– as the oldest member...

Funny Friday: SJG &#...

Alas, we’ve reached the SJG “Punk’d” season finale: #SeriousGeorgeGetsPunkd. Little did Will know that when he went whining to Ebonne about the utter lack of April Fool’s Day pranks at SJG, he’d opened a can of good-humored, unsuspecting worms and released them...

Funny Friday: Seriou...

It’s Friday, and, of course, here at SJG that means it’s time to laugh. This week for our Funny Friday post, we wanted to prove that no one is exempt from a good prank. When someone is in a position of leadership or renown in some way, it should be expected that they are susceptible to all...

Funny Friday: Let th...

Here at SJG we have Thirsty Thursdays a couple of times a month. We have, at times, broadened our fun to include Wet Your Whistle Wednesday, Stop the Madness Monday, TGIF Friday, but never Tuesdays. No, never Tuesdays. We have our limits and standards after all. So on the last Thursday of...
