Stodgy is Sexy is a documentary project that studies our culture and the fact that we have moved from the 80's, aka the "ME" decade to our current position which, for the most case, points to a general lack of ostentation and more toward conservativeness.
Basically, the idea is that our cars are getting less flashy, people are offended by overspending, and fiscal intelligence is considered attractive. I know I've seen this, even in Jersey.....
The webisodes, put out by Caid Productions, will come out on a rolling basis, and users will be encouraged to upload their own content as well as vote on interviewees for future webisodes.

The Joan Angela D'Alessandro Foundation will hold a fundraiser at The Sports Place, 600 Bradley Parkway, Blauvelt, New York (2 miles south of the Palisades Mall) on Sunday, March 14 from 4 to 7 p.m.
There will be mini glow in the dark golf, basketball, soccer and arcade games. Children will have an opportunity to win door prizes. Tickets, available at the door, are $20 per person and $65 for a family of four. For more information check the Foundation Web site at www.joansjoy.org or contact Rosemarie D'Alessandro at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-664-9140.
The Foundation is set up in memory of Joan Angela D'Alessandro, the 7-year-old Brownie Scout who was assaulted and murdered by her next door neighbor. The goals of the Foundation, which is nonprofit, are to promote child safety and protection, advance victims' rights and help abused, homeless and neglected youth. Joan's legacy lives on through the Foundation.
The money raised from this event will go towards the Foundation's annual effort to provide Great Adventure season passes for the youth of the Passaic Teen Center and the Youth Haven in Paterson. It will be a great afternoon.
