Hey, readers, welcome to blog posts by “The Independent Palette.” If you like food, film and music, we’re the ones who can tell you what’s out there in New York City in the independent genre. Here’s a little bit about each of us:
Queen: I enjoy politics, reading, listening to music, discussing philosophy and watching any film starring Johnny Depp. I am currently looking for a job or any other way to make money. I will begin to write another short film, shortly. I love Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Bill Maher If anyone is planning on going to Ireland or Scotland… can I come? I am not a fan of Ben Roethlisberger or Michael Vick. My favorite quarterback is Peyton Manning and my favorite baseball team is the New York Yankees.
Sabrina: I like discussing anything from film to vendor food, and indulging in all that in between too. So it’s awesome that I get to write for edit the Arts & Style section of The Ticker. I also critique theatre on a regular basis for tdf.org on their “plog” (play-blog). And I’m a concert junkie with a wide variety of music favorites. I love to travel too and my first stop was India, then Bangladesh, and I’m still looking to book the next one. Until then, I look forward to my posts in “Writing Culture: Food, Film and Beyond.”
Alexandra: I do not typically follow independent films or fashion so I look forward to keeping this blog this semester. My major is journalism and creative writing and I want to be the next Katie Couric or Barbara Walters. I am the features editor of the Ticker, Baruch’s independent student-run newspaper. The type of articles I like writing the most are profiles on people. I am looking forward to adding food, film, and other art related subjects to the list of things I know about and I think keeping this blog would help me achieve that.
Ashley: I am very passionate about food and cooking; it has always been a constant highlight in my life. In my opinion, the best thing about living in New York is that there are always new food places to try that are just around the corner or a few train stops away. I plan on creating my own food blog this spring. After I graduate Baruch College, I want to attend culinary school in the city.
Jerrica: I am an advocate for individuality and anything artistic, so I am very excited on this blog about culture. I love art and its forms, especially the art of fashion. I have my own fashion blog, which is just a blog for fun, of photographs I find inspiring, beautiful, and a little talk on fashion itself. However, I am also a huge fan of film and music, two art forms that this blog will focus on. I am looking forward to see what the Indie film genre has to offer.
