Crowning glory is a book that is a social experiment combined with a memoir. It started when I bought a long, red wig one late night on eBay. When I put the wig on I felt transformed into a fiery, sexy and bold woman. When I wore the wig out into the world, people reacted to me very differently. Men and women both stared. One man threw his briefcase down on the ground, kneeled and asked me to take him home with him. I got a lot of attention. And I admit I loved it. I started wondering what it would be like if I had the same long hair, but different colors. How would I feel as a blond or brunette? How would people react to me?

I decided to find out and concocted a 5-week long experiment where I would live the life of a redhead, a blond, a raven-tressed woman and brunette, plus the last week was me with my own hair. I even hired an accomplice/spy to accompany me at all times and record data, like stare stats. The book is about the experiment and the adventures my spy and I have along the way, plus it is the story of my struggles with bi-polar disorder and how the experiment helped me heal in ways I couldn’t have predicted.

“Woody Allen: Reel To Real” is the most comprehensive discussion of Woody’s film art to date, covering everything he’s ever written, directed, or otherwise acted in. It also responds to five decades of Woody-related criticism — both in print and online — before turning the tables on the director, himself, to dissect his opinions on art, life, and philosophy, and what they mean for his films.

Hailed as a “seminal” and “revolutionary” work (Dan Schneider, Cosmoetica), “one of the most significant pieces of film archaeology you could come across” (Dan Slevin, FishHead Magazine), and “the most far-reaching analysis of Woody Allen’s career so far” (John Greco, Twenty-Four Frames), it will be updated once a year with new essays, articles, and reviews. These updates will sync automatically with all purchased copies.

Alex Sheremet is a poet, critic, and novelist from Belarus. He graduated Valedictorian from the Macaulay Honors College in NYC. “Woody Allen: Reel To Real” is his first book-length publication.

Pop-Culture – Undead Obsessed: Finding Meaning in Zombies

Undead ObsessedUndead Obsessed: Finding Meaning in Zombies
By Jessica Robinson
Publisher: Booktrope
Published: October 2014

Jessica Robinson’s obsession with zombie films started when she was in junior high. Horror films are a great lens to examine concerns society has about modern science. Let’s face it, when it comes to horror movies, science has a bad reputation. Blind ambition, experimental serums, and genetic experiments are often blamed for the giant monster terrorizing the city or the reason aliens are taking human prisoners or the cause of the dead rising from the grave to consume living flesh.

Using film, literature, and interviews with experts, Robinson examines how zombies portray real-world fears such as epidemics, mind control, what may or may not exist in space, the repercussions of playing God, and the science behind the fears. Robinson’s goal is to explore how zombies become a metaphor for our fears of science and what could happen if science gets out of hand.
