#VegasStrong

With what the cover and several of the inside pieces of this month’s issue are about, it seems rather frivolous to be writing about virtual shopping, but nonetheless, that’s what this month’s piece, Clicks or Bricks, is about.  Continue reading

Wonder Gal | David Magazine

David May 17 CoverThis month, for David Magazine, I take a look at the new Wonder Woman film starring Gal Godot, as well as a brief history of the character and her creator. Of course, while you’re there, you might want to check out this related article about women in the Israeli army (of which Gadot herself was a member a few years back)

At the same time, there’s some interesting commentary happening at The Mary Sue about the lack of advertising and promotion for this film.

The Honey Do List | David Magazine

Yup. This month I tackle the “The War Against Domestic Grime,” which “is Chronicled on Our Refrigerator Door.”

PS: Rasa disagrees with this list, insisting everything should be done if not daily, then at least three times a week.

Home Ice? | David Magazine

So nice to see my old buddy Skids writing again. This time he’s taking on the idea of a major league sports franchise in the Las Vegas Valley. You should give it a read.

This piece started as a look at unusual wedding dresses. While researching, I tapped my friend Adriann for information. Turned out, she was story.

Here’s a fascinating look at wedding dresses, what’s current, and how to get the mall set to wear Penny Dreadful couture!

Games People Play | David Magazine

Many years ago, back when I still lived in Vegas, I would hang out at Denny & Lee Magic shop on Saturday mornings with a bunch of great guys (who also happened to be magicians). One of them was Timm Metivier, who, a year ago, decided to open his own shop – not magic, but one for board games.

Here’s a little story I wrote about it for David. Source: Games People Play | David Magazine

Rabbi Abraham Zacuto and the Astrolabe | David Magazine

15731830_1394489910585063_3400966232016091909_oMy boss, the publisher of David Magazine, has this wonderful way of working. If I happen to be traveling somewhere, he knows something about the history and sends me on an adventure to write a story for an upcoming issue. This time, I was in Portugal, so he sent me in search of Portuguese Jewish history. The result is at the link below. Enjoy!
