It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it, but it’s a party! And you’re both talking to other people and you’re laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes. But…but not because you’re possessive or it’s precisely sexual but because that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad but only because this life will end. And it’s this secret world that exists right there in public unnoticed that no one knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s…that’s what I want out of a relationship or just life, I guess.

Helen Castillo truly made it work this past season of Project Runway. The New Jersey native, often clad in all black, designed standout pieces—from a chic, minimal look inspired by a pair of shoes, to a form fitting, vibrant gown for a modern Southern woman. Though Castillo was eliminated in part one of the season finale, she’s just getting started. We caught up with her to talk her fondness of black, her journey in fashion, Tim Gunn and her dream client.

From plastic spoons to Scotchka, to see ‘The Room,’ is an experience that is hard to describe, because it is both magical and bizarre, and changes with each occurrence. The 2003 cult film was named the the ‘Citizen Kane’ of bad movies by Entertainment Weekly. This year, ‘The Room’ celebrates its tenth anniversary with sold out midnight screenings nationwide (some with appearances by the mysterious director/actor/icon Tommy Wiseau).
There’s a mythic element to ‘The Room’ and this month one of the film’s stars Greg Sestero (who plays Mark), released The Disaster Artist, a book he co-authored with Tom Bissell, about his experience inside the ‘greatest bad movie ever made.’ We caught up with Greg to talk about the staying power of the film, his venture into writing and life with Tommy Wiseau.
