Orange Lutheran sculpture: What is the meaning of it?

Almost 200 Orange Lutheran students joined together to create the 28-foot-long hanging sculpture “Wave of Hope.” The piece, made of CD fragments, wire, poultry fencing and climbing rope, was designed by the school’s advanced sculpture and ceramics class and built over a three-month period. Its shape was inspired by the word “hope.” The artists who helped create the piece share their thoughts on its meaning.

Creepy Kellyanne Conway Goes Fatal Attraction On ‘SNL’

A smoldering anger, a knife, and a twisted Kellyanne Conway. The “Saturday Night Live” remake of the slasher/stalker movie “Fatal Attraction” with Kate McKinnon playing Donald Trump’s advisor isn’t pretty.

McKinnon’s Conway will not be ignored by the press.

‘Star Wars’ Droids Star In ‘Friends’
