One of Curiosity’s principals received a message a few months back claiming that he’d won “Six Hunderd Million Dollars” from the European lottery and forwarded the embarrassing scam to the entire company for a good laugh.

OTR and the Old Days

I am embarrassed to say that I have lived in Cincinnati all my life and while I currently spend a lot of time in the “new” OTR, I have not been terribly immersed in the history here. That all changed a couple of weeks ago when I went with a group of family and friends

Happiness, Epicureanism and Thomas Jefferson

Epicurus (307 B.C.) believed that pleasure is the greatest good, but the way to attain such pleasure is to live modestly and to gain knowledge of the workings of the world and the limits of one’s desires. This led one to attain a state of tranquility and freedom from fear. That is Epicureanism. Hedonism is

The Five Truths of Moving (in your twenties)

In three days, I will be moving for the fourteenth time in my twenty-five years of existence. I’m by no means a expert in the art of moving, and I’m aware that homeowners with families probably have a totally different experience of the process than I do as a perpetual renter and recent college grad.

Tell the Truth

People think I’m a cynical person. They tell me I always look at the negative aspects of life and dwell on the inadequacies of the situation, the people around me, and myself. I don’t see it that way, but if enough people tell you something you have no choice but to wonder. I believe I

Why Curiosity Worked for the Fab Four

Sitting here today and looking back on what the Beatles accomplished in just six short years, it seems as though there would have been no possible way for them to fail. They had all the perfect elements that every successful team needs: brilliant people (especially the songwriting skills of John, Paul and George), amazing talent,

Basement Explorations

I was recently going through some old files in a box in the back of my basement. There was manila file folder simply titled “poems.” Inside the folder were pages of poems and other narratives that I had written sometime between the ages of 15 and 25. I am now 30 years older, and it

Production Designer Heather Davis’s Curiosity Day

For my first Curiosity Day (a day spent doing something you’ve never done before), I decided to go ‘geocaching.’ It’s essentially treasure hunting for adults, and I was instantly hooked! I got my camera equipment ready and set out to find as many treasures as I could before it got too dark. I filmed the

The Making of Krampus—Everyone’s Favorite Holiday Goat Monster

When Krampus first called Curiosity, he was just your average European holiday goat monster that beat the daylights out of naughty children for a living. He needed a new image, a new message, clothes, dental work, rebirthing therapy—look, he needed a lot, OK? In the end, a few of us agreed to help him out
