The ancient Greek story of Orpheus and Eurydice is ancient and well-known – but this isn't it. The couple is married, Eurydice dies, and Orpheus looks back… but you’ll have to see the opera to know what happens in between!

Interview with PALM PILOT!
Palm Pilot is a band composed of LaGuardia’s Aiden Berglund, Rain Johannes, and Laszlo Horvath, and well as Eleanor Roosevelt High School’s Charles Mitchie. They just released an eponymous album, ‘Palm Pilot’. As a “puzzle-pop” band, this group derives influences from modern and contemporary art, math, shapes, and social issues. Together, they combine splashes of color and sound to create a “sonic equivalent of biting into Gushers candy.”
Interview by Charlotte Force
As August 11th approaches, we remember the life and accomplishments of Robin Williams, who tragically committed suicide almost a year ago. Joana Seifter has written a great review of one of his lesser-known movies, "The Fisher King". Check it out here:
New poem from Katja Stoke-Adolphe: Snowglobe
When I’m out on a clear day, and the sky seems to bend like a blue umbrella fading to grey out in the distance, I feel like I’m in a snow globe, and the sky that covers me is glass. Some might find that scary, but to me it would be reassuring because if I’m in a snow globe it must be held in someone…

Planet Panic: Earth Day Benefit Concert | Music News
by Charlotte Force
The back room of Branded Saloon is an intimate burgundy space with neon signs and pseudo-gas lamps. It’s a dark room, even on days when the sun is smiling, with velvet curtains hugging the jam-packed people around a low-rise stage. It was the venue of Planet Panic!, an Earth Day benefit concert organized by Thomas Warner Perriee and Venice Ohleyer. For three hours, seven excellent bands played excellent music, as a projector screen hung in the back screening The Lorax, psychedelic cartoons, videos of nature, Alice and Wonderland, and dream-like fractals.

NEW SECTIONS TO CHECK OUT!
There are always things to discover at LaG Mag - we've recently added a playlists section, called the "Mixtape", where you can go and listen to LaG Mag's 8tracks playlists! New playlists include "The Smokey Pub" and "Dancing Shoes On".
Also, in our re-branded "Culinary" section, you can find food reviews, and a new column called "Discover an Ingredient", where we explore the wonders of cooking and the history of different culinary materials. The first installment of this is called "Chocolate: A Temperamental Mistress".
LAG MAG AND POETRY IN SCHOOL
- Ms. Hasegawa and her classes have written haikus that have been posted to the website already. There are more to be added!
- Mr. H has assigned a spoken word project to his students. When they perform, they will have the option to be filmed for posting on the LaG Mag website (Mr. H has promised extra credit for this).
In the future, it would be great to collaborate with the entire language department to have poems written in French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese, and post the poems of those students who choose to share their work.
Mr. H has also shared a desire to organize a LaGuardia poetry festival in which students would share spoken poetry. We plan to encourage this idea and collaborate with the powers-that-be, so stay tuned for progress on that!
FUN NEW STUFF ON LAG MAG!
We've added an ART PAGE where you can submit things like watercolors, canvases, prints, etc. in addition to our SKETCHBOOK page, which concentrates on the pages of people's art journals.
We've also added a HAIKU COLLECTION on the poetry page from Ms. Hasegawa's 8th period class.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADDING YOUR HAIKU IN JAPANESE
Message me with the haiku in japanese, the english translation, your full name, and your japanese section/period and you will be added to the article.
