Movie Review/David Nestor

Greg and Earl are childhood friends who make cleverly titled film parodies of classic films. Some of these include: Anatomy of a Burger, Senior Citizen Kane, The 400 Bros, to name a few. This can be considered an homage to Michel Gondry’s “sweded” films in Be Kind Rewind; in which case there are also several scenes of stop-motion animation that can also be found in his work.

Phyllis Carol Agins/Fiction

THE ALTAR     by  Phyllis Carol Agins   Bella knows what she is running from. One failed marriage, two dramatic love affairs. A third abortion that was almost too late when she might be tempted, at thirty-nine, to keep this, maybe her only-chance baby. When she’s as empty as her womb, she decides to teach English anywhere the world wants to learn it.   She fills out applications and sends full-size photos.

Crime in America/Jim Palombo

When I first encountered Merton’s thoughts I was struck by his focus on the imbalance/inequality between ends and means that, for me as well as many others, was an issue in our society. In other words, the links between opportunities, unequal social conditions and deviant-criminal behavior that could be gleaned from his tenets were more than obvious.

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
