The story of how Fussy Coffee at Science Park came to be named is a joke between David Negreiro and his brother-in-law and business partner Joe Ballaro.
On one level, it’s a tongue-in-cheek riff on how pretentious some coffee shops can be. On another level, it’s about the two men’s love of a good coffee after a meal.

The images themselves are unassuming, small and faded. It can be like that at the birth of a new medium, a new technology. And thanks to the Yale Center for British Art’s absorbing special exhibit, “Salt and Silver: Early Photography 1840-1860,” we get a sense of what it was like to be present at the creation, to be there for photography’s first hesitant steps, and then, like a gifted child, its astonishingly quick spread across the globe — full of promise and already containing the seeds of the medium’s future. It connects to now in a flash.

In The Saddest Day, a man looking for his brother is helped and accosted by a man wearing a cheerleader’s outfit. In Steeping, a detective who keeps getting beaten up on the trail of an investigation doesn’t know how much he’s being played — until he does. In G.R.C.E., a space explorer runs into trouble on his mission. And in Friendly Advice in a Coffee Shop, a woman and a man try to renegotiate a relationship, but their cleverness keeps getting in the way.
They all have a few elements in common. They have characters named Grace Broha. They have cheerleaders. They have the line “let me tell you something.” And most of them were made in New Haven — all of them as part of New Haven’s chapter of the 48 Hour Film Project, now in its eighth year and going strong.

First there’s just a chiming guitar, picking out plaintive, atmospheric chords. A second guitar unleashes a denser set of notes on a splash from the drums. Then the rhythm falls in as both guitars and bass take off into a hazy splendor. Even when the drums double-time it for the chorus, and the vocals bounce on the lyrical hook — the “high” in “somewhere high” stretched out to hah-ee-yah-ee-yah-ee — the song’s sunny fog doesn’t disperse.
Clocking in at only 3:02, Witch Hair’s “Somewhere High” is a song that feels over too soon, which in this case is a good thing. When it’s done, you can just hit play again.
