What nominee is most deserving of an Oscar?

lt sueMatthew  McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club. I never appreciated his work before but I found him very credible and just enjoyed the role.

Sandra Bullock is deserving of an Oscar for Gravity. She's a fantastic actress, she's been in the game for a while, and she works really hard.

lt meganKristin Scott Thomas as The Invisible Woman because she was just frickin amazing the way that she decided to become invisible, and then realized that she could not live a live of invisibility. She figured it out. It was kind of a painful way, but she learned that she was never going to be number one in Charles Dickens’ life.

lt harleighLeonardo DiCaprio, Wolf of Wall Street. Extreme Bacchanalia of drugs, alcohol, cheating people out. People loved the movie, and perhaps even loving the bad wolf of Wall Street himself. Always an enjoyment, always a treat to see Dicapio, Wolf of Wall Street  was one of the best films I've seen all year. Good luck, Leonardo!

Week of Festivals: Full Moon, Lantern Festival, Purim, Holi

It is a week of many different festivals along with a full moon, all occurring simultaneously. Thursday Chinese New Year celebrations end with the Lantern Festival (at full moon). Thursday is also the Pisces Solar festival (full moon), Purim (Jewish Festival) and Holi (Hindu New Year Festival). Sunday, March 8, Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. The festival of Purim celebrates the freedom of the Hebrew people from the cruel Haman (a magistrate) seeking to destroy them. Esther, the Queen of Persia, who was secretly Jewish, saved her people from death. The sweet cookie hamentaschen celebrates this festival. Friday, March 6, is Holi, the Hindu Spring Festival celebrated after the March full moon. Bonfires are lit the night before, warding off evil. Holi, the Festival of Colors, is the most colorful festival in the world. It is also the Festival of Love—of Radha for Krishna (the blue-colored God). It is a spring festival with singing, dancing, carnivals, food and bhang, a drink made of cannabis leaves. Holi signifies good over evil, ridding oneself of past errors, ending conflicts through rapprochement (returning to each other). It is a day of forgiveness, including debts. Holi also marks the beginning of New Year. At the Pisces Solar festival we recite the seed thought, “We leave the Father’s home and, turning back, we save.” Great Teachers remain on Earth until all of humanity is enlightened. The New Group of World Servers is called to this task and sacrifice. Sacrifice (from the heart) is the first Law of the Soul, the heart of which is Love. This sacrifice saves the world.

What would make Santa Cruz better?

A lot more outdoor activities such as outdoor movies and concerts, food and art festivals, and more multicultural activites. Emmanuel Cole, Santa Cruz, Bicycle Industry Product Developer

 

Thomas Fogarty Winery

When looking for a bottle of something to have with dinner, Gewürztraminer 2012 is not the first wine to come to mind. Given the popularity of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir—to name but a few—Gewürztraminer sits low on the totem pole.
