Shoreline Theater gets an Upgrade

Bigger, better and more exciting images will soon be exploding onto the screen in SCC’s theater as a new projector and digital soundboard arrive.

In a fast moving world of digital movies and digital sound, new technology is needed not only to keep up with the times, but also to help lead the way in education. SCC is attempting just that with the installation of a brand new, state-of-the-art digital movie projector and digital soundboard. SCC’s theater manager John Nold has been at the forefront of the digital revolution that has come to SCC.

Do you do the Transgender Dysphoria Blues?

“Transgender Dysphoria Blues” is the most important piece of transgender media to come out in years.
Trans people rarely show up in popular media, and when they do, they are often presented as jokes or treated in a horribly offensive fashion. Even when they are treated with some amount of respect and dignity it is usually in media written by cisgender people, played by cis actors, and marketed to cis people. Trans people are not often allowed to tell their own stories.

When standing ovations attack: the cost of over-celebrating

Standing ovations are supposed to signify when something truly extraordinary was just witnessed. But what does it mean when everything gets a standing ovation? Is anything special when everything is special?

Chances are we’ve all seen it: a play, musical, concert, opera, movie, etc., comes to an end and, whether you like it or not, everyone around you has risen in applause. It’s as if this thing was so good that they couldn’t contain their excitement to their seats, and must erupt to their feet for proper exaltation.

Teaching a Robot to Love

For all it’s intense action, “Chappie,” Neill Blomkamp’s latest sci-fi blockbuster, would be right at home in Isaac Asimov’s “I, Robot.” Rather than another grandstanding tale of humanity’s destruction at the hands of machines à la “The Terminator,” “Chappie” tells the remarkably human story of a sentient robot who must find its purpose and confront its own mortality.

Shoreline’s Opera Workshop is a Unique Opportunity and Experience

Every year Shoreline Community College has the distinction of being the only college in the Puget Sound region that puts on a full scale opera production with the Opera Workshop.

The workshop features 25 students who auditioned during the fall quarter, and will culminate in three nights of performances, from Feb. 20 – 22, in the SCC Theater. Under the music direction of SCC Instructor, Charles Enlow, students get to interact and learn hands on from professionals before performing in front of an audience.

Ebbtide Book Club

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for a good book to read that is a little off the beaten path. It feels like young adult (YA) literature options are getting more and more limited.
