Crowdfunding Campaign Highlight: BRASS RIBBON CINEMA

Saturday, March 31, 2018

Get help with your film or movie Crowdfunding Campaign

  KICKSTARTER FEATURE:

BRASS RIBBON CINEMA:

Fishtown's Neighborhood Movie Theater!

Attn: Philly,
Fishtown is missing a movie theater. But there's a plan, they just need your support!

Like most of Philadelphia, Fishtown is in the midst of a great revitalization. The neighborhood has changed so much even in the past few years. Coffee houses, ice cream shops, restaurants, bars, bakeries, art galleries, and glorious, GLORIOUS pizza — all within walking distance, BUT the nearest movie theater is way across town. 

Brass Ribbon Cinema contacts Miguel Luzon, Mairobi Luzon and Adam Cramer

Enter Miguel Luzon, Mairobi Luzon and Adam Cramer - two people with a dream and one with the perfect space.

WHO WE ARE

Brass Ribbon Cinema is the vision of siblings and Fishtown transplants Mairobi and Miguel Luzon - "Forgoing the usual upsells and glitz of a traditional big-box theater, Brass Ribbon Cinema is first and foremost a community movie theater. Our mission a simple one: To provide Fishtown and Kensington with local, awesome, and reasonably-priced cinema. We do what we do in order to get to the heart of why cinematic experiences matter. We believe that film and community can go hand-in hand as means of finding common ground through shared stories and shared experiences".
Some of what you can expect to find at Brass Ribbon Cinema:
Kid-friendly sing-along matinee (because who doesn't still have Frozen's “Let It Go” replaying in their heads?). Adult-friendly drink-along BYOB movie nights (take a sip every time the camera unnecessarily focuses on a gear shift in “The Fast and The Furious”). Free First Friday special screenings. Classic/remake double features. Concessions partnerships with local restaurants. Specialty screenings for independent artists. Free on-screen advertising for local charities and nonprofits. These are just a few of the ideas we have to make Brass Ribbon Cinema a Fishtown favorite.

Motorcycle Museum in Philadelphia - Liberty Vintage Motorcycles

WHERE YOU'LL FIND US

We are delighted to have found a location that we feel not only suits the needs of a fledgling movie theater, but is also a Fishtown landmark. Adam Cramer of Liberty Vintage Motorcycles has been kind enough to let us lease half of his glorious garage to be renovated into the future home of Brass Ribbon Cinema.

We connected with Adam through a community Facebook page. Adam had put up a post looking for a tenant that would make use of half of his Garage in a way that would be fun, and would add value the neighborhood we call home. It didn't take long for us to fall in love with the space, and after meeting Adam and hearing his story, we knew we had found the perfect location.

PhillySpotlight: AND WE EVOLVE - Liz Funk Interview

Thursday, March 15, 2018

And We Evolve Vintage Fashion Philadelphia

Tinsel & Tine's Spotlight on Philly's “revolved clothing” Shop

Interview with LIZ FUNK

Proprietor/Fashionista/Business Woman

behind

AND WE EVOLVE


by Le Anne Lindsay, Editor


Diane Von Furstenberg once said, “I didn’t always know what I wanted to do, but I knew the woman I wanted to be.” Like DVF, most of us are still trying to figure out what we want to do. But what if we had the tools, the mindset, and the community support to experiment with how we want to show up in the world? Welcome to And We Evolve - Liz Funk.

If you're a long-time Tinsel & Tine reader you may have seen me post stuff about PHLBloggers and The Blog Connect Annual Conference (April 28-29, 2018) it's great to be in the trenches with other bloggers, but it's also a great way to get to know about new businesses and happenings in the city, as companies reach out to us with invites and offers.  Which is how I virtually met Liz Funk of And We Evolve a new sustainable fashion company & community in Philadelphia with a showroom about to have its official launch March 31, 2018 and an online women's vintage fashion shopping site up and running!

T&T: I love how you came up with an alternate term for vintage or thrift shopping "Revolved" it's a wonderful spin. How did the term come about? 

Interview with Liz Funk of And We Evolve
 LF: Thank you! One of main goals with starting And We Evolve is to bring the many benefits of shopping secondhand to a larger audience and give secondhand an upscale rebrand. Frequently, when people think of preowned clothing, they think of musty thrift stores, or all the clothes jammed on the racks at Goodwill, or perhaps even a negative experience they had with Buffalo Exchange or Poshmark. So, we wanted to create a new category: #revolved clothing. At And We Evolve, we only sell new or like-new clothes (and, of course, vintage clothes), and we really curate what we put on our racks so everything is unique and special or intensely useful. We sell brands from “Banana Republic and up,” meaning Banana Republic and designers that would be considered a step up from Banana Republic. We want people shopping to feel like our collection is only the gems. When someone wears #revolved clothing, we want them to feel that #revolved is a badge of honor, and that this item is especially special. And that’s true! What’s so cool about #revolved clothing is that it adds such a uniqueness to your wardrobe.

T&T: Although the majority of shopping is done on the And We Evolve website (andweevolve.com), women can visit the Philly showroom by appointment...
1) How long did you have the online store before adding the showroom at the Loom? 
2) Are you a Philly Native? If so, where did you grow up? If not, what brought you to Philly? 

LF: We soft-launched the company online November 1st. We moved into the Loom September 1st, and we really only opened our doors to the public a few weeks ago, for our Galentine’s Day party. It took a really long time to sort our inventory, categorize everything, figure out what racks we wanted to use, and get the space into the shape. Starting Saturday, March 3rd, we’re open to the public every Saturday from 12pm-5pm. With our Official Launch Party & Membership Kickoff happening on on March 31st.

I’m not a Philly native, no. I grew up in upstate New York, in Albany. I went to college in New York City and spent most of my twenties in New York. I had visited Philadelphia a number of times in fall 2016 and I really, really liked it. So when I started thinking about moving last spring, with “higher quality of life” as my main criterion, Philadelphia seemed like a great fit. I took a leap of faith and I moved here in June last year, and I am absolutely loving it. This is such a warm, vibrant city, full of people who are so creative and driven. I’m a huge fan.


Visit the And We Evolve Showroom in Port Richmond Philadelphia
 
T&T: Obviously, you have a love of fashion and clothes, is this a passion that became a business, or did you study fashion and merchandising?

LF: This is a passion that became a business. My prior career was as a freelance writer and speaker. I wrote about entrepreneurship, women’s issues, career happiness, and mental health, and I spoke at colleges about anxiety management for high-achievers. I also did a lot of marketing consulting for early stage startup companies.

LF cont: I’ve always had an interest in secondhand. I remember the first thing I ever bought secondhand, a black strapless dress from a thrift shop in the East Village. It was 2007--I was a junior in college--and the dress was $2. It was thrilling. I was hooked. I shopped secondhand as a hobby from then on, and I developed an interest in having a secondhand store or an “upcycled fashion” store after college. Around the age of 26, I stopped buying things new from stores, and built my wardrobe from vintage shops, secondhand stores, clothing swaps, and estate sales. I always wanted to start this company, but I was always waiting for the idea to gel in my head or waiting to feel ready. Realistically, I was never going to feel ready--I just needed to do it. Moving to Philadelphia, meeting my business partner Alisha, learning that Alisha also wanted to start a secondhand clothing company-- all these forces came together in a very motivating way.

T&T: Tell me about your partner and partnership

Alisha Ebling, co-proprietor of And We Evolve Vintage Clothing
LF: I co-own the company with Alisha Ebling, who is a writer / grantwriter and an ardent environmentalist: we met at a Girl Develop It class in June of 2017. (Thanks, Girl Develop It!)

LF cont : If I’ve learned anything so far from And We Evolve, it’s about how important the buddy system is. In our careers, we’re generally charting our path on our own. As a freelancer and self-employed person, I worked pretty independently and made virtually all the choices around my work on my own. I can’t overstate how valuable and comforting it is to have a partner. You have someone to bounce around ideas, you have an accountability partner, and you have someone by your side during all the peaks and valleys of entrepreneurship.

Alisha is very well educated on how damaging fashion production is to the planet. She’s also one of those people who is extremely passionate about a topic and has a distinct viewpoint, but she speaks about environmentalism in a way that is so gentle and articulate and fact-based, you’re leaning in and ready to agree with her, without her telling you about any of the gory stuff that’s happening to our planet or to the meat we eat. - And We Evolve can be a stepping stone for women weaning themselves off of fast fashion. If someone learns about what goes on behind the scenes at H&M, or Zara, or really any major apparel company, and they want to stop shopping at those stores and creating demand for these retailers’ products, we’re here. Our message around fast fashion is: Wear revolved clothes so there is less of a need for retailers to make new clothes. It’s okay to wear Zara and H&M-- as long as it’s recycled Zara. As your budget allows, start to incorporate sustainably and ethically-made pieces into your wardrobe. Or, just keep shopping revolved, or supplementing your wardrobe with revolved pieces. 

And We Evolve vintage clothing membership

T&T: Tell me more about the social & female empowerment aspect of And We Evolve

LF : Together, Alisha and I have a very strong position on empowering women. We want to help women be intentional around how they show up in the world. Some women express themselves through their clothes. Some women express how they want to feel through their clothes. Some women want to feel better about themselves, and they use clothes as a tool to raise their vibration. Or, if someone doesn’t really care about their clothes or their “look,” they can be intentional in the sense that they can make socially-conscious, informed decisions about where they shop.

Plus Size Designer Fashions in Philadelphia


T&T: I was glad to see the clothing seems to range from X small to XX Large. Can you tell us how you come by most of the fashions?

LF: I’m a size 18, and making preowned and vintage clothing available to plus-size women was a given when we were starting the company. We have full inventory (i.e. we can create multiple full outfits for various occasions from our inventory) in sizes ranging from 00 to 20.

LF cont:The vast majority of clothing is donated to us by friends and people in our professional network; virtually everyone has clothing that they’ve barely worn or that no longer fits them, that they’re eager to part with. We’ve been really blessed that so many people were eager to clean out their closets to help us build our inventory and our first collection. We also acquire vintage and high-end designer items from going to estate sales on the Main Line. We are actively looking for more plus-sized clothing, especially in aspirational brands.

Designer Vintage purses, shoes, hats and coats in Philly

T&T: "Phantom Thread" was one of my favorite movies of 2017, all those post 1950 gowns are sheer dress porn! So glad Mark Bridges won the Oscar. Do you have a favorite movie based on the costumes?

Costume favorite Todd Haynes "Carol"

 LF: I love the Todd Haynes movie "Carol", starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. It’s set in the 1950’s, and Cate Blanchett is a well-to-do woman who wears stunning 1950’s outfits: dresses with cinched waists, high-waisted skirts with full skirts, brooches, scarves, and incredible coats. I am a coat gal-- I really appreciate a dramatic, unusual coat. Carol is coat porn.

T&T: That's so great that you say that, I wrote a post leading up to the Oscars on all the nominated Costume designers and in my opening paragraph I talk about not liking the movie "Carol" except for the fact that the fashion was so memorable!

T&T: What are your favorite restaurants, bars, or coffee shops near your showroom in Port Richmond? (The LOOM 3245 Amber Street, Loft 5-4-C, Phila 19134) 

LF: To be honest, when we’re at the studio, we’re go-go-go. When we’re done for the day, we tend to retreat back to our neighborhoods. I live in Fairmount, and I have a number of favorite spots. Kansai on 19th and Spring Garden is really, really good sushi. Jack’s Firehouse on Fairmount has really good brunch. And naturally, I love the OCF Coffeehouse right across from the Penitentiary.

90th Academy Awards Recap and Highlights

Tinsel & Tine Recaps & Archives
The 90th Annual Academy Awards

By Le Anne Lindsay, Editor

(Note: embedded social media will not be visible to those receiving  Tinsel & Tine via RSS Feed)
 

THE HOST

Jimmy Kimmel hosts the Oscars 2nd year How did he do?

Jimmy Kimmel handled his monologue with the kid gloves type humor necessary in this very sensitive climate. Pandering to the #metoo #timesup and inclusion movement in a way that wasn't too cloying. I bet he and the Academy producers were wonderfully surprised the whole Jet Ski bit went over better than they would have imagined - at the start of the show, Kimmel offered up a Jet Ski (worth almost $18,000) and a trip to Lake Havasu in Arizona as a prize for the Oscar winner who gave the shortest acceptance speech, an incentive for keeping their statements brief. "I will be timing you. I have a stopwatch," Kimmel said and behind him, Helen Mirren as the most elegant Price Is Right girl ever. As winners would come up to collect their gold statue, they'd either mention they'd try to stay in the running for the Jet Ski or announce they know there's no way they'll be a contender. At the end of the night, Phantom Thread costume designer Mark Bridges was the big Jet Ski winner.

RED CARPET PICNIC

As always, I started shopping and cooking too late on Sunday to truly be ready and set to watch the E Red Carpet at 5pm.  In fact, at 5:30pm I pulled out my ice trays to find them empty! And had to make a run to the closest gas station to grab a bag of ice.  This year, I tried a This Pinterest Recipe, for Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie but used regular ground beef, where the recipe calls for Bison.  It came out pretty good, I added carrots, colored peppers and a little bacon to my beef mixture.  The problem was, my sweet potatoes were still a little hard in places even after I pre-cooked and whipped them.

 
And per usual here's our red carpet picnic snacks & cocktails
 
Oscar Party Food

BEST & WORST OF THE RED CARPET

Every year there's a trending color or style on the red carpet. I'm sure the stylists somehow make it known and agree, but is it an actual memo?  Last year so many gowns displayed a plunging neckline, one year it was varying shades of yellow, this year was crisp and clean white attire.

White Trend on the Red Carpet 2018

My favorite white look was my idol, Jane Fonda, flawless as always. It was terrific seeing both she and Helen Mirren my other ageless idol, presenting on stage together. Margot Robbie's dress was okay. Such a shame she really didn't shine at all this awards season, not just on the red carpet, but the buzz around her was so low for someone nominated for Best Actress again and again for her role as figure skater Tonya Harding.  Timothée Chalamet simply should have worn a white shoe, maybe black laces if you wanted some contrast, but these black loafers were not the right choice.

Mary J Blige and Laura Dern in White Oscars 2018

I liked both Mary J and Laura Dern's white looks, except I wish Dern's didn't have that strange seam down the front.

My Picks for Best Dressed
Tinsel & Tine's Choice for Best Red Carpet Look Oscars 2018
Gina Rodriguez (Annihilation) in a stunning Zuhair Murad gown and 
Betty Gabriel (Get Out) in a bluish green gown from Tony Ward's Fall 2017 Couture collection.



My Picks for Worst Dressed

Emily Blunt in Schiaparelli haute Couture Oscars Red Carpet 2018

Emily Blunt in Schiaparelli Haute Couture was trying for whimsical fairytale, but succeed in presenting a serious mess.

Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph to Host Oscars 91

Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph were a hoot presenting together, twitter starting asking for these two to host next year. But what was up with Rudolph's choice of gown, 
does she have eczema over half her body?

SPEAKING OF TWITTER

Oscar Winner 1962 Rita Moreno wearing Same Oscar Dress in 2018

Many of us were feeling amazed that Rita Moreno could still wear the gown she wore to accept the Best Supporting Oscar in 1962 for West Side Story! But I didn't understand such mixed reviews about the movie clips celebrating 90 years of movies as montages, viewers seemed to either be enthralled with them or felt they were a complete waste of time.


WINNERS

Oscar Ballot for the 90th Academy Awards

I got 11 categories out of the 24 correct. I could have gotten 14 because I knew Frances McDormand & Sam Rockwell “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri” along with Allison Janney, “I, Tonya" would win as they'd been winning all Awards season. I voted against them because as good as they were in these roles they were really over the top and mainly comedic characters. Where Willem Dafoe "The Florida Project", Richard Jenkins "The Shape of Water", Laurie Metcalf "Lady Bird" & Mary J. Blige "Mudbound" turned in these wonderfully subtle performances, they weren’t flashy, but in my opinion more difficult and more Oscar worthy.

Definition of Inclusion Rider Oscars 2018

That being said, I did appreciate Frances McDormand's acceptance speech - "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: "INCLUSION RIDER."  For anyone who hasn’t had a chance to Google this yet, It's a stipulation that actors and actresses can ask (or demand) to have inserted into their contracts, which would require a certain level of diversity among a film's cast and crew.

Big Congrats to Jordan Peele on his Best Original Screenplay Oscar

For best original song I thought it was going to be the self-empowerment power house “This is Me” from "The Greatest Showman", it was even the anthem during the Olympics. But I'm happy for Songwriter Robert Lopez who is now the first person to become a “double EGOT” with his Oscar win for co-writing (with his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez) “Remember Me” from Pixar’s animated film “Coco.” He has an Oscar for “Let It Go” from “Frozen, two Daytime Emmys (for songs in the children’s TV series “Wonder Pets”), Three Tonys (score for “Avenue Q,” book and score for “Book of Mormon”) and three Grammys (two for “Frozen” and one for “Book of Mormon”).

The Shape of Water Best Picture 90th Academy Awards
Click HERE for Tinsel & Tine Review

Think I'll wrap this up and skip to the biggest awards of the night - Best Director and Best Picture. As I predicted and hoped THE SHAPE OF WATER is now a Best Picture winner along with its writer/director Guillermo Del Toro - Of the 90 films awarded Best Picture, 64 now have also been awarded Best Director. The last was the 87th Academy Awards when Alejandro G. Iñárritu won Best Director for "Birdman" which won Best Picture. Before that, at the 84th Academy Awards Michel Hazanavicius won Best Director for "The Artist" which won Best Picture. So it seems to skips a year or two and the last 3 directors to win this distinction have been foreign born.

As much as I enjoyed "The Shape of Water", which I chose as Best of 2017, I do kinda think it won mainly because it was the safest choice that fell in line with the sentiments of the moment, among the nominations - it satisfies the whole inclusion movement, since del Toro is Mexican, it’s has a female lead with a handicap, you’ve got your bases covered there. Much of the film is not just a love story, but a love letter to the film industry. And the Academy usually likes to reward those with at least 25 years in the biz.

26th Annual PHILADELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL Coverage (Oct 19-29, 2017)

Tinsel & Tine's Look at : The 26th Annual PHILADELPHIA Film Festival By Le Anne Lindsay, Editor POST UPDATE #PFF26 DAY 1...

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Eater Philly - All

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

CITY OF GOLD

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE

Food n Film: THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
