J. K. Rowling and the perceived omissions


By the time that you are reading this, dear friends, I expect that vast swaths of the population will be parsing J.K. Rowling’s latest edition to the Harry Potter canon, it being the script for the stage production of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” taking place 15 years on from the events in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. While there may be Witches and Wizards galore contained within there will be no Wiccans or Pagans attending Hogwarts. 

Ms. Rowling is on record regarding the religious affiliations of her innumerable characters, and they are, in the main, from the expected Judeo-Christian spectrum encountered in most Western countries, with a few following Vedic practices. Seemingly, No God and Goddess worshipers need apply (expecting Hinduism). 

Leo: Expect us all to look towards you for confident leadership

Leo (July 23-August 22): So, your natal Sun offers an abundance of riches of these next two months. Expect us all to look towards you for confident leadership. Your Sun and Moon being trine Saturn put you at the helm, oh captain!

Virgo (August 23- September 22): You may find that your energy is at a lower ebb than usual these next two months, as your Moon is badly aspects to Mars. While in any race you may find yourself a laggard, at least Venus lends to you an attractive grace at the rear of the pack.

Libra (September 23-Ociober 22): August Might be something of a muddle for you. While your physical prowess is at its peak, it will seem difficult to do or say the right thing at the right time. It's a matter of too little slightly too late. Your chances improve in September, but don't be smug about it.

Scorpio (October 23- November 21): While you are often ahead of the curve, and what you do or say confounds others, the world is ready to embrace your peculiarities this time around. You're a regular Pied Piper.

Female impersonator Carl Max gives back to the community


“What’s in your soul is in your soul.”  Whitney Houston


When female impersonator Carl Max walks into a room as Whitney Houston, you are transported back in time. With his style and grace, he brings Whitney alive again. During his performance, hearing her powerful yet angelic voice, reminds you of what she was to many of us.

Out In Jersey writer Cora Berke sat down with Carl to talk about his career and his passion for what he does. He began performing in Atlantic City over 20 years ago in the Rendezvous Lounge. The iconic drag queen Sandy Beach saw him and said Carl would be perfect as Diana Ross singing Billie Holiday. After performing as Diana Ross, Carl went on to perform in La Cage aux Faux at Bailey’s in Atlantic City, skyrocketing his career.
