BlogDH Presents: The Process: 410[GONE]

Ever seen a show at Brown and immediately wondered: “What did they have to do to make that?” Fear no more. BlogDH presents The Process, a new video column in partnership with Sock & Buskin that highlights the rehearsal process of Brown mainstage productions.

The first installment is for 410[GONE], the last show of the mainstage season. Erik Ehn, chair of the theatre department, brings this poignant and powerful play by Brown alum Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig ’05 to life. 410[GONE] is a tragicomedy that explores loving past all limits and loving to the point of non-attachment, as a Chinese American brother and sister navigate possible histories and possible futures in the face of a sudden, catastrophic death.

410[GONE] opens this Thursday at 8:00 p.m. in Leeds Theatre. Performances are on April 2-5 and 9-12, Thurs – Sat @ 8:00 p.m.

Get your tickets here, in person before the show, or in advance at the Brown Theatre box office in the Leeds Theatre Breezeway. First years and transfers get into Thursday performances free.

Music by Lizzy Callas ’15.

Take-home midterms are easy, right? You’ve got all your notes and can complete the test on your own time, so how bad can it be? All footage shot during an actual Middle East Studies take-home test. Narrated by the voices in my head.

BlogDH Presents: Guys getting drunk and reading Cosmopolitan Magazine

One fall evening, a group of Brown University seniors sat around a kitchen table in an off-campus apartment, casually drinking before a night out on the town. A Cosmopolitan magazine had been left on the counter by one of the female tenants, and it wasn’t long before one of the guys spotted it. He opened to a random page – sex confessions – and began to read, periodically pausing to gape at the absurd stories.

In case you are unfamiliar with this top-notch publication, Cosmopolitan is known for its unfiltered and often-absurdly unrealistic sex and relationship tips. Sure, it may be marketed towards a female audience, but who is to say that our male counterparts would not also benefit from the magazine’s wisdom? The logical next step to this enlightening process was to recreate the experience, but this time with anti-freeze Fireball and a BlogDH videographer at hand to document the entire event.

Behold: Guys getting drunk and reading Cosmo.

Some of you may have recently seen photos of the rare and outrageous pizza cake floating around the internet. This delicacy is exactly what it sounds like – layers of pizza stacked on top of one another, meant to resemble a layer cake. We here at BlogDH are all about #internet and insane recipes, so we decided to conduct a BlogDH “Epic Meal Time” experiment to see the pizza cake in action. Try out the recipe for yourself.
