Unedited Footage of a Bear

From “Unedited Footage of a Bear”

“Unedited Footage of a Bear,” Adult Swim’s new 4 a.m. short sounds like it will be just the thing to unwind with after a super late night of who-knows-what. And for about 30 seconds it delivers — you’re just hanging out with a cute bear. Then you’re interrupted by an ad for allergy medicine. From there, things get pretty dark, pretty quick. But if you keep your eyes open, you may notice that this nature-video-turned-ad-turned-psychological-thriller was completely Baltimore-made. Read More →

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Dec 17, 2014 10:22am

As we’ve chronicled a number of times before, we’re huge fans of This American Life alumna Sarah Koenig’s new podcast Serial, which centers on the murder of a Baltimore high school student in 1999.

Chris Davis Approved for Adderall Use

In a very casual phone interview on 105.7 The Fan, Orioles manager Buck Showalter spoke on several topics — from which of Santa’s reindeer Showalter most resembles, to watching the Army-Navy game, to whether it’s politically incorrect to be proud to be an American. But the most interesting tidbit — the sentimental Nick-Markakis talk notwithstanding — was about Chris Davis. Read More →

On The Wall with Renaissance Fine Arts: Comfort & Tranquility

Comfort & Tranquility

Two different viewpoints on a tranquil and comfortable bedroom from our expert consultants that will inspire the way you look at art and the world around you.

This light filled space provides an inviting atmosphere. The padded headboard, plush rugs, and chocolate hued decor create a cozy bedroom accented with modern design touches. A serene work of art will only amplify the effects of this relaxed bedroom.

This bedroom is very modern, tranquil, and quiet. Robert Farber’s “Seeing Montana” portrays an image that evokes feelings of nostalgia and home, while inviting the viewer into a seemingly private space- a perfect finishing touch to this sleepy nook.




Eric Abrecht employs a subdued and calm inducing color palette within his piece, “Cielo XIV”. The subtle allusion to the sky and clouds provokes both intrigue and repose, making it the perfect piece to provide a lovely dreamscape.
