Denison in the Blogosphere (2/11/11)
We’re always hunting down interesting Denison-related content on the interwebs, and, periodically, we’ll share the best of this content with you on TheDEN. In today’s fix of Denisonia, we’ve got one alum debuting his new play in Columbus, another blogging and drawing monsters, and, amazingly enough, some disgruntled Packers fans?
ESPN First Take
As you probably already know, roughly 400 ticket-holders had to give up their seats at the Super Bowl, due to safety concerns. Anna Rusch ’10 was among the jilted Green Bay fans and, along with her father Wayne, recently shared her experience on ESPN First Take. While at Denison, Rusch, an economics major from Washington, D.C., captained the soccer team and was an Academic All-District, Academic All-Ohio and three-time All-North Coast Athletic Conference soccer selection.
Available Light Theatre
Here’s something different to do this weekend. Take your valentine to see Hum by Ohio playwright Sebastian Hawkes Orr ’07 at the Available Light Theatre. The drama weaves a math lesson, a backyard monster, a letter from a long-forgotten ex-girlfriend and a road trip to Ohio Caverns into a search for meaning in the face of terror. The play runs through Feb. 19.
A Voice from the Wood
Ross Wood Studlar ’04 draws comics featuring robots, frogs, turtles, guinea pigs, and giant monsters and is the author of The Raven and the Crayfish. The Homestead alum and studio art major also has been a park ranger at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, telling Native American legends and stories from science and history. Check out his blog A Voice from the Wood: Living Dinosaurs for his drawings and musings on environmental issues, outdoor life, and more.
