Arts Vanity: An Ode to Crimson Arts Production Night

As a final love letter to production night, I present: a poem composed entirely of quotes from closeouts emails — a record, a relic, a portrait of this odd, exhausting, crazy, wonderful thing that is Crimson Arts.


Arts Vanity: In the Mood for Films

Arts Vanity: Bad Queer Art: A Sampling

I have decided to come clean: There have been points in my life where I have indulged in some bad queer art. Sometimes, at the end of a long day, I just want to cradle the $3 lesbian flag that I got from some horrifying Target pride sale.

Outgoing Social EAL / Unofficial Film EAL / EAL’s Corner Executive Connor S. Dowd has been a social experiment conducted by truTV in association with the “Impractical Jokers.” Don’t tell him that we told you or else you’ll ruin the prank.

Arts Vanity: Help! A Pitch About 'Glee' Took Over My Crimson Identity

I fear that my legacy in the eyes of the 151s, the 150s, and even, woefully, the beloved incoming execs of the 149th Guard has become inextricable from one horrible, wonderful television series about a high school show choir in Ohio.


Arts Vanity: How to be the Quirky Best Friend in a Trashy Rom-Com: A Comprehensive Guide

Arts Vanity: Confessions of an 'ARTPOP' Apologist

You read the title, you know where this is going, and you know what I am about to say. You may disagree with me. You may want to argue with me.
