Eye Candy For Mojo

Mojo is the first play Jez Butterworth wrote. It is currently on show at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London. The cast is made up of an illustrious list of young actors. Colin Morgan, Ben Wishaw, and Rupert Grint are the names most leaping out. The play is more limping than leaping. The eye candy factor is definitely more powerful than the script.

Richard Wagner's Tristan and Isolde

Richard Wagner's opera Tristan and Isolde (variously spelled as Tristan and Isolda, Tristan and Yseult, or Tristan and Ysolt) is the Romeo and Juliet of German opera. The mere mention of the names gives the connotation of unhappy lovers in a secret relationship with an unhappy ending. There are many versions of the story available that almost everyone has at least some idea of what is going on which makes it one of the ‘easier’ works by Richard Wagner to watch and actually know what is happening on stage.


Homosexuality Grounds For Granting Asylum

Homosexuality may be a reason to grant asylum to fugitives coming to the European Union. This was decided by the European Court of Justice. Three men from African countries had filed charges against the Kingdom of the Netherlands for recognition as refugees with the right to apply for asylum. Their home countries are known to punish homosexual acts with heavy prison sentences or even life imprisonment.


Refusing to Grow Up: Justin Bieber

2013 has not been the year for Justin Bieber. From beginning to end, he was intent on living his bratty phase to the fullest, probably something he missed doing at 15. Now, you would expect him to grow up, but he just showed that he is not yet ready to behave like a 19-year-old.

Intersex Children Allowed in Germany

Tradition demands that a child is born as a boy or a girl. Tradition ignores the fact that one in 2,000 children is born with characteristics of both sexes in varying degrees. Germany's government and parliament have listened to these people. It is now to become Europe's first country to allow babies with characteristics of both sexes to be registered as neither male nor female. There are good reasons for doing this, and some consequences that have yet to be sorted out.
