A Play in Progress

Shameless Hussies

Review by Sean McQuaid

Shameless Hussies isn't a play-not yet, anyway. It is, however, a play-in-progress, and January 14 saw a relatively early draft of the script presented at the Arts Guild in a staged reading, one of the latest in a series of Playwright's Cabaret presentations produced by TheatrePEI.

If I can slip into first person for a moment, I may as well be open about

A Respectable Crop

A Visit with Dice Mob

A look at the rap scene in Charlottetown

by Kelly McClean

It seems that every time you turn on MuchMusic, you see a rap artist doing his or her thing-driving a big car, wearing fancy jewellery, and surrounded with lots of dancing women. Up until recently this genre of music wasn't represented here on PEI but now seven young Charlottetown men are taking it on.

Dice Mob (Eric Broadbent, Tom Biggar,

From C Major to Sea Captain

A Cultural Life
by Joseph Sherman

Ashley MacIsaac might be bowing a different tune if he were a Midshipman aboard H.M.S. Surprise (frigate, 579 tons, 28 guns) under Jack Aubrey. A subversive sailor risked keelhauling 200 years ago. Jack and his physician/naturalist companion Stephen Maturin, while plying the Nelsonic seas between Minorca and Nova Scotia, and when becalmed or otherwise between naval

Poetry is Discovery

Poetry is Discovery
Profile: Brent MacLaine

by Lee Ellen Pottie

Reports of a new book of poetry being published never make the headlines of the six o'clock news, and hardly ever make a wave outside the small literary circle of poet aficionado/as. But I swear this time is different: Signal Poetry Editions of Vèhicule Press in Montrèal is publishing Wind and Root by Prince Edward Island poet, Brent MacLaine-his first

There's No Time like the Present

Country Prose
by Charlie Hansen

The new millennium has finally arrived and the world hasn't changed dramatically, contrary to the ominous predictions of many soothsayers, naysayers, and others prone to predict doom and gloom. We've all survived splendidly, and the world shall continue to revolve around the sun. I'm not one to gaze into crystal balls or read tea leaves-I only have one eye that works

Music Opens the Mind

by Andrea Ledwell

A recent article in the Globe and Mail discussed a study on the possible influence of music on the brain, specifically for problem-solving skills-yet another study showing the positive impact of music in our lives.

This particular five-year study with children showed that keyboard training in music (i.e. piano lessons) improved skills that require mental imagery. The results of
