As the crisp air and fast falling leaves make the presence of fall known, it is clear that Halloween has almost arrived. Aside from all of the macabre ambiance, one question still remains: “What am I going to be this year?”
Ang Lee’s most recent project, “Taking Woodstock,” explicitly caters to a certain market, yet its draw is relatively comprehensive. It is based on Elliot Tiber’s memoir and set during what is arguably one of American culture’s most defining eras – the late 1960s during the Vietnam War.

Even though we are nowhere near January and the start of 2010, back to school is a perfect time to make some new resolutions. All the latest fall clothes are just beginning to hit the stores, and chances are that the money from your summer job is burning a hole in your pocket, screaming that wonderful phrase, “Back to school shopping!”
