Out of Darkness, Into Light

Cambridge Youth Minister Spreading Fire with "Stay Lit" Album, Message of Positivity

Karlos Cobham Stays Lit for Jesus

Poverty. Prejudice. Climate change. The threat of nuclear war. “There’s a lot of darkness going on in the world,” said 28-year-old Karlos Cobham.

But for the Barbados native turned Cambridge youth minister, there is an opportunity for hope.

“What if we, as one people, were to keep our lights on instead of complaining about all the darkness? What if we were to shine our lights and take our light into dark places and eradicate the darkness going on,” Cobham asked.

Big Works in Small Spaces at the Chandler Gallery

Where you’d typically see the big, bold letters of “Greetings From…” or an endearing “Wish You Were Here,” there are stunning oil still lifes, surreal portraits or a textural collage made entirely of green circles.

Summer of Hell

The Rebuilding of Wellington-Harrington

I made the mistake of googling my opening line “everything happens at once,” and became completely distracted with the physicists' theory that “The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening

Vally D is a Comedian

I haven’t seen the most comedy of anyone ever, but I have seen a lot. I’m a tough audience and that is not because my standards are too high, but more a reflection of America’s descent into mediocrity. That being said, I consider Standup Comedy to be one of the hardest art forms out there.

Subject:Matter

An Interview with Choreographer/Director Ian Berg

It was one of those nights. I didn’t want to leave the house. The snarled, rude, rush hour traffic, coupled with a lack of parking in Central Square, confirmed my mood. I was asked to film a tap dance performance at the Dance Complex, and the thought of banging metal shoes on a wood floor was not conducive to my bad mood. I was braced for agony.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.
