(SNN) - In our last quarterly review, we happily celebrated The Sage’s first birthday by featuring a sampling of work from all of our talented writers. As we move forward in 2014, our Sage Satire issue will keep entertaining with more of that creative, wacky humour, the kind that gets the reader wondering, “Now, where did that come from?” Our writers will also continue to question what’s going on in our complex society with their serious, and often sobering, commentary for the Sage Opinion. If you are a fan of OpEd, you might often question what writers have conveyed. If you do, then we’ve hit a nerve and that’s a good thing. Healthy debate over serious societal issues is often a catalyst for actively dealing with those issues
Sage Entertainment Embraces Pop Culture
In addition to the Opinion and Satire issues you have enjoyed since launch, we’re very excited to introduce our third issue, the Sage Entertainment, which is sure to appeal to those readers who love exploring the world of pop culture. From movies to web sensations, our Sage contributors are keeping an eye on celebrities, pop icons, and all things that bring us hours of entertainment. Sections from our new Entertainment issue currently cover Movies, Television and WebCelebs. Also, in the Living section, we look at those icons that are currently with us. Articles in the Passings section pay tribute to those who have left us.
Soon to come will be a Music section with a focus on interesting content from the music world. Look for pieces on singers, songwriters, musicians, bands, etc. Serious or satirical, these articles will appeal to the music lovers among us. As we grow the Entertainment issue, look for contributions from our seasoned Sage scribes as well as new writers with a special interest and expertise in all things music, from the highly commercial to the more esoteric.
Even More New and Cool at The Sage
Speaking of new writers, we are very proud to introduce our newest contributor, Kris Keppeler! Kris is a voice-over artist, film actor and live theater performer. We are thrilled that she has joined the Sage team! Take a look at Kris’s witty work in her latest article, Woman Gets Hair Transplant For Her Legs. It’s a hoot!
Writer Ed Toolis has been busy keeping a careful eye on popular issues in a new series, Another Snippet From Fox News…in case you missed it. With foxish flare, Ed gives us a humorous, running commentary on popular issues in true Fox News style. Ed’s latest Fox snippet covers minority rights. Read it and laugh!
Ed keeps his wit sharp with his other new series, The Sage Headline News, an enjoyable, quick read of more snippets of news in headline form. Take a look at some of Ed’s funny headlines here. You’ll find yourself searching for more crazy quips in the series after reading this piece!
From snippets of the written word to snippets of video, The Sage’s John “Cork” Corcoran Jr. entertains us with clips from the The Old Coot and The Geezer Show, a VLOG that features Cork and his friend, Dan Roth. Cork, a former film critic, and Dan, a former actor, talk movies, Hollywood, and all things entertainment. Their insightful, at-ease commentary gives Sage readers a refreshing look at the world of entertainment through the minds of seasoned veterans from the industry. These guys know their stuff!
