Remembering Evangeline  

Posted In All Things SG,Blog

As many of you already know, Evangeline tragically died in a car crash earlier this year. Known outside of SG as both Lauren Brook Matyis and Ari Said, she was just 25, and is survived by a 4-year old daughter, Avigail Jerusalem Matyis.

It’s always especially sad when we lose one of our own. Below, two members of our community that knew and loved Evangeline – filmmaker Michael Charron (a.k.a. SG Member: MichaelElder), and artist, actress and SG Tatian – remember her vibrant, creative, talented, generous, and loving spirit.

R.I.P.

Our condolences go out to the family, loved ones, and friends she left behind.

(A trust fund has been set up for Evangeline’s daughter – see details at the footer of this piece.)

Life Beyond the Bar Scene: Unsettled

Life Beyond the Bar Scene: Unsettled

Driving down the quaint streets of Chatham on Cape Cod is always a reality check for me. The gorgeous colonial style historic homes with vast lawns and wrap around porches lay quietly by the sea, so perfect in their rustic yet modern décor, looking as though a horse drawn buggy would be a better fit in the driveway rather than a SUV. I have always wanted a home like that. I want something old fashioned by the water, somewhere were I can drink sangria on the porch with my husband and look out at the sea. I could stare at these houses forever, just dreaming of a life that right now, seems so out of reach.

I left a seaside town to move to the city, traded the ocean in my backyard for a concrete ocean and non-stop traffic, horns and sirens. Constant college party screams and shouts lull me to sleep instead of the waves and the cry of seagulls. Instead of tasting salt in the breeze, you might get the occasional AC water drip from the apartments above you. I am used to this city life now, and I do miss it when it’s gone, but I can’t see myself retiring and settling down here forever. For me, right now, this is what I have convinced myself I need. This city has always catered to my single needs. Even when I had a boyfriend this city did nothing to help “us” live a quieter happy couple life. We’re late nighters. Our only consistency in life was the same bar stool we would sit in after work. We had no place in a place like the Cape. We didn’t belong there, we belonged here in this tragedy.

It’s a much different story than just city life vs. country life. To me it’s like two different worlds. Move me to one of those houses on the Cape without me feeling like I’m completely done with this city bar scene and I would be lost. My only question –– is it going to be enough? What am I waiting for? More money? The perfect person to bring with me? If I wanted that life so badly things would have been different. I could have moved home to Rhode Island this year but I couldn’t do it. I was supposed to move to San Diego this September, but the thought of leaving Boston just became too horrifying for me. It was just easier to stay, to keep doing what I’m doing. Why stir the pot when things are pretty much alright the way they are? This city has become the ultimate enabler, allowing me to live a crazy life from which I want no rescue.

Fiction Friday: Marco and the Red Granny – Part 18  

Posted In Blog,Fiction

by Mur Lafferty

SuicdeGirls presents the final installment of our Fiction Friday sci-fi series, Marco and the Red Granny, which is brought to you by SG columnist Mighty Mur a.k.a. cyber commentator Mur Lafferty.

Since it’s Marco’s last stand, we’re not going to give you a recap as we have in weeks past. If you’ve missed any chapters, you’ll find links to them all after the jump. If you’ve not been reading, you really should. It’s an action-packed sci-fi adventure that’ll blow your mind, and leave you pondering the ramifications of corporate and/or government controlled media, entertainment, and art long after you’ve hit the last line. For those who’ve kept up, we hope you’ve enjoyed the ride. Keep fighting for freedom of expression, and trust that ultimately the pen (and the programmer) will always prevail against the sword.

“Never try and be what you’re not”
- Marco Pirroni

Marco Pirroni is a legend in his own time. Now some of you may be saying “But I don’t know who the fuck Marco Pirroni is?” Well you may not know his name but you’ve heard his music. Pirroni was major part of the punk scene in the late ’70s in his native England. He first played with Siouxsie and the Banshees in 1976 along with Sid Vicious and later he joined Adam & the Ants penning five number one singles. Since then Pirroni has worked with dozens of other musicians but he is forever looking forward and never backward. His latest band is The Wolfmen where he has teamed up with another ex-Ant Chris Constantinou.

It was the comic world that ruled geek news this last week as San Diego Comic Con was in full swing. Major players from all realms of nerdom gathered to share their latest updates. With such a huge event, I can’t possibly cover all the announcements, but here’s a full recap for your convenience.

Marvel Studios made a good call releasing Captain America: The First Avenger along with all the con hype. It took the box office this weekend making $65.1 million, but still shy of Thor’s $65.7 million opening weekend. And while Comic Con may have helped boost Captain America’s sales in America, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 continues to enchant the rest of the world.

Out of all the videos released at this year’s Comic Con, the trailer for The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra was one of the most anticipated (see above). The brand new video gives just over a minute’s look at the world of Avatar some 70 years after Aang.
