An open letter to the Telegraph: On 5th August 2016 you published the following article: The 50 best shows to see at the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe (link attached.) The article should function as a handy paired-down guide for those who don’t have time to flip through the festival catalogue of over 2000 shows; instead it reads as a love letter to well-established names, and a slap in the face to smaller companies. The article was published on the 5th of August . Some shows have previews on the 3rd, yet many do not. The majority of fringe shows don’t start their runs until the 6th, and some not until the second or third weeks of the festival. There is simply no way you could have seen all the acts listed before publishing your recommendations. Alistair McGowan’s show doesn’t...

Hello, I was going to make a video but I decided that an open letter would be easier. I am a huge fan of Arrow. I am an even bigger fan of Olicity. Regardless of what people think, I am NOT here to talk up the Olicity fandom and/or make the fandom look like saints, that is not the point of this open letter. I'm here to talk about the bullying within the Arrow fandom and how it keeps being encouraged. Today, Stephen Amell responded to a guy who made a video to complain. (This is NOT the first time Stephen has replied to hate). Anyways, Stephen encouraged this guy to keep on sharing his opinions. I would totally be fine with this if the video this guy made was reasonable or respectful, but he wasn't so I'm going to share my opinion. This guy, the one who Stephen encouraged to...

Dear Kajol, Today on your special day I decide to write something for you who are someone very special in my heart. I think the first thing I should say is I love you, because I do. Yes, I have said it many times but no amount of words could ever describe the love I have for you... It's your birthday and you are still as beautiful as the first day I saw you 18 years ago, in fact more beautiful. When I first saw you I honestly didn't know you were going to be this important to me. I'm so glad you were born, because you brighten my life and fill it with joy. Today is the day you were brought into this world to be a blessing and inspiration to the people around you including me. Every single day, you amaze me with your personality, your thinking methods and your ability to make...

It's 1982 Michael Jackson's Thriller album just dropped. I'm five years old and from the first beat I instantly became his biggest fan. I hounded and annoyed my mom like any good five year old could and she finally got me the cassette tape. The only music I owned before that was Christmas with the Chipmunks which I played with no cares if it was Christmas or not on my Sears and Robuck record player. So now with my Fisher Price tape player in hand and the greatest album of all time I retreated to my playroom to be alone with the King of Pop. I lived and breathed Michael Jackson. I started a club at school, I rocked a replica Thriller and Beat It jacket, my room was adorned with posters and trading cards of Michael. Any time he was on tv I had to watch it no matter if it was past my bed...

An Open Letter to Corinth Theatre-Arts Hi. My name is James Strachan and I have been an active participant in Corinth Theatre-Arts on-and-off for the better part of 18 years. Over those years, I've done many things for this theater. I've been in countless shows. I've assisted in many productions. I've filled roles at the last minute. I've served on the board. I've even co-hosted the Maggies. The Maggies. The prestigious awards that put a neat little bow on a CT-A season. The awards that pat those of you on the back that have demonstrated spectacular performances, shows, or technical prowess in the past year. The awards that have, for so long, snubbed me and my hard work. For those of you that don't know, I have never won a Maggie. Despite all of my hard work, effort,...

Re: Faked Moon Landings Surely (?!) an artist, such as my father, whose profound degree of artistic integrity is self-evident, whose political/social consciousness is manifestly present in nearly every film he made. Whose highly controversial subject matter literally put his life at risk, and yet he continued to make the film’s he made … don’t you think he’d be the very last person EVER to assist the US Government in such a terrible betrayal of its people?!? There are many, very real conspiracies that have happened throughout our history, are happening presently, I’m only too aware of the dreadful manipulations perpetrated by governments, secret services, banksters, the military-industrial-complex etc.. But, claims that the moon landings were faked and filmed by my father? I just...

By the way you can call me Jelay for short, 25 years of age from the Quezon City Philippines.

Please spare a few minute and read it till end. I am not supporting Mr. Salman Khan for what he had said…. What he said is wrong but each person has a different way of interpretation. The actor had even clarified later and tendered an apology. Today I happened to Read an article .. Haryana gangrape survivor sends notice to Salman, seeks Rs 10 crore damage A survivor of gangrape from Hisar on Saturday has served a Rs 10-crore damage notice on him while asking him to tender a public apology over his alleged remark about rape victims. I as a human being would just like to say or ask few thinks… Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution makes the “right to freedom of speech and expression” a fundamental right. Before I put my point I would like to say that No being on earth...

June 27, 2016 Dear CBC News Broadcasters, I, like many of your viewers, often have CBC News on in the background as I’m focusing on other tasks. I think a lot of Canadians would agree that much of your material makes great background noise. Last night marked the season six finale of Game of Thrones. Likely due to my divided attention, I must have missed the introduction of your guest and I hope I missed your announcement of “major spoiler alerts”. Either way, the segment went forward and the season finale of Game of Thrones was ruined for me. Admittedly, I’m furious about losing the surprise and emotional journey that this episode certainly would have brought me. What I’m more furious about is that you chose to broadcast a summary of arguably the biggest reveals and plot...
