Experiencing Nirvana

POMPANO BEACH (CBSMiami) – Redeveloping communities into thriving business hubs takes a lot of time, hard work, and yes, even some mentoring from experts.  One local mentor-mentee duo uses their expertise to transform neighborhoods, one city at a time.


As an emotionally distraught Kurt Cobain teetered atop a perilously high stack of amplifiers and threatened to throw himself to the floor of a Rome nightclub, Bruce Pavitt was too shocked and scared to think about the camera in his pocket.

Pavitt, co-founder of the Seattle-based record label Sub Pop, had just arrived in Italy in the winter of 1989 to join the tail end of a 42-day European tour that included one of his top up-and-coming bands, Mudhoney. But the more immediate purpose of Pavitt’s trip with Sub Pop partner Jon Poneman was to check on one of the opening acts, a little-known trio called Nirvana, and reports about the fragile mental state of its 22-year-old singer and songwriter.

Boy George on Gay Wedding Cakes and Getting Along With Culture Club




Boy George is calling from Australia, where he’s finalizing filming as a coach on that country’s seventh season of The Voice. He's purportedly on the phone to discuss his and Culture Club’s upcoming summer tour with the B-52's and Tom Bailey of Thompson Twins, but he has something else on his mind: wedding cakes.

Earlier in the day, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who, citing religious objections, refused to make a cake for the wedding of a same-sex couple. George has kept tabs on the decision from halfway across the globe and is disturbed by the decision, but he questions the ruling with the kind of winking irreverence the world has come to expect from him over the span of more than three decades in the public eye.

At the Park 3400 luxury apartment project in Davie, drones flew over the construction site to obtain 3D images of the area.

Current Builders, the Pompano Beach-based construction firm, intends to use the visuals to help its client keep abreast of how each building component is being installed, step-by-step. When the project is completed, the images will be used to help market the 259-unit complex.

The construction firm also created a virtual mock-up of interior finishes for the apartments, using an iPad gaming engine that provides instant changes to selections of counter-tops, cabinets, back splashes, fixtures and appliances, to help managers and interior designers choose what they want to install in each residence.

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) -Darius J. Manuel plays many roles.

At the Florida Children’s Theatre in Fort Lauderdale, he’s a teacher and director.

But he’s also a student.

Shari Upbin is Darius’ mentor. She’s helping him prepare his monologues for a competition next month.

“Darius is the kind of actor that he gets himself into the gear. And he does it. It grows. I keep using the word passion. That’s what Darius has,” Shari said.

“I simply just breathe and I think about the given circumstances,” Darius explains of his artistic process. “I think about what these extraordinary playwrights have given me.”

Darius started acting when he was a sophomore at Dillard High School.

Shari has been in the entertainment business practically since birth.

“That’s what I do, my whole life. That’s all I do. And I am so passionate about the arts,” Shari said.

New Times Interviews Photographer David I. Muir about Reggae Reel Exhibit

Pompano Beach Cultural Center Celebrates Reggae With Photo Exhibit and Concert


David I. Muir has a favorite among the 26 photos that will be on display during his upcoming exhibition, "Reggae Reel: Moments in Music." It’s a picture he snapped of incarcerated reggae artist Buju Banton sitting onstage at Bayfront Park Amphitheater in 2011 when the singer was out on bail. Muir (not to be confused with ABC World News Tonight anchor David Muir) couldn’t have asked for better lighting or a better spot by the stage. And the intimacy of the moment struck a chord with the longtime reggae concert photographer.

Travel Pulse Magazine named The Pompano Beach Amphitheater the #1 Outdoor Venue in the state of Florida.

The 3,000 seat venue was featured on their website and on MSN's website which ran the story.
