    The Kitchen Renovation Project: What you need to know before you start

    “What does an average person need to know before they get started on doing a kitchen update or renovation?” Well, it just so happens that I have a few ideas in mind that I can pass along as part of my own dealings in this matter. I will tell you that I am in no way claiming to be an expert on the subject. However, I can certainly give the general public some thoughts on…

    Closed Off Circle Volume 2: Michel Gondry & Mood Indigo

    Corey Wagner My first exposure to director Michel Gondry was his 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind , for which he won an Academy Award (Best Original Screenplay, as one of the co-writers). The acting and Gondry’s unique visual style help sell the movie’s unconventional take on the romantic-comedy. After that he wrote and directed the equally surreal The Science of Sleep in 2006, another movie I am very fond of. At this…

    Closed Off Circle: A Film Blog, Volume 1: Introduction

    Corey Wagner My first idea when I decided I wanted to do this blog was to just delve in and begin discussing movies/directors right away. As I was outlining the first post in my head, I kept thinking about footnotes and asides that would further explain where I was approaching the movie from. Then it hit me: just make a post about your biases, views on film, controversial opinions, viewing history, etc. Now if someone…

    Staff Selfies: Courtney Hatley and Lee Ann Wells

    Courtney Hatley      Courtney Hatley can almost always be caught with a video camera in her hand, lugging heavy equipment around, or hunched in front of a very, very big screen, as she is our resident videographer. When she’s not making you look good, she’s typically found buried under mountains of genealogy research and local history ephemera. Courtney’s favorite author is probably David Foster Wallace, but as an amateur internet enthusiast she reads most…

    So You Wanna Be a Librarian?

    John Beemer “Why would you want to be a librarian? Sitting around reading all day—that sounds like the most boring job. Aren’t libraries dying, anyway? And don’t you want a career that pays better?” I’m sure most library workers have heard these questions dozens of times. I know I have. About midway through a master’s in library science, I’ve almost gotten used to the quizzical looks and smirks that accompany questions like, “What on Earth…
