Just Because: Ben Wright

I have been wanting to do a feature on actor Ben Wright ever since I started FH. In the early 90's I listened to the Into The Woods soundtrack constantly and loved that I got to see the show via the PBS television version. I kept putting off posting about Ben hoping that I might track down some great image or he might appear in a new movie, tv show or stage production. Sadly I think Wright has left the business. His last Broadway credit is the 1996 production of State Fair and with the exception of playing 'Angry Man' in a 2008 short, Wrights last film credit was the 1994 Penny Marshall flick Renaissance Man.

I love Wrights vocals and Jack's few songs are some of my favorites. Into The Woods is a show in which the soundtrack is almost better than the actual show. The lyrics to many of the songs have so much meaning and say so much they cannot possibly be captured with just one listen. If anyone knows what Ben is up to please shoot me a line. If you have not listened to ITW you should, the entire cast is superb and Bernadette Peters' Children Will Listen is magnificent.

For Karl Smet color is not just about what the visual. For the Brussels based photographer color is about sensation. It is rare to find an photographer whose site matches the same level of creativity that is displayed within his images. Karl's categories are as much about the what color represents as it about the color itself.


For many dark is a downer. I however love to surround myself with deep blues, blacks and greens. My real estate agent differs but white and yellow rooms depress the hell out of me. Although I wear bright colors I am not so fond of looking at them. Many institutions, hospitals in particular, go to extreme measures with brightness and color to hide their actuality.


Since everyone sees color slightly differently we all identify to certain colors in our own way. It is interesting to ask yourself what certain colors mean and if this meaning effects what you choose you wear and keep around you. Does green mean growth and rebirth or is it jealousy or maybe cash and success. Red can be desire and passion or hate and anger. Does grey make you calm or is it connected to something dull and lifeless?
