    Go Climb a Tree - Michael Jackson and other childish things

    Here we are, on the brink of a messy, bloody war with Iraq (again); the economy is in free fall (again); our leaders are clueless, conservative assbags (again); and yet North America is obsessing instead over some passing TV amusement (again). Deep ...

    Stop Time - Eadweard Muybridge and the Age of the Image

    History, like evolution, or flying an airplane, seems to consist not of gradual changes but of long periods where nothing much happens, punctuated by brief, terrifying moments where the shape of things to come is largely determined. The years 1860 t...

    Sex & Death - Manuel Pardos love affair with mom

    Look at the paintings of Manuel Pardo, and you'll hear Esquivel. It's too bad Cal State Fullerton doesn't have marimba beats echoing around its Main Art Gallery. "Metaplasmic" demands not a stilted museum hush, but rather a big, ridiculous cocktail ...

    Vanishing - Existential anguish in a ray of light

    Blow Job - UC Irvines The Day Maggie Blew Off Her Head

    Fucking Barbie. For years, she has filled little girls' heads with impossible standards of beauty, fueling negative body images and wild fantasies of winning the Miss America pageant. How come we never see the darker side: the obsessive dieting, the...

    The Joy of Nothing

    It's tempting to think that when Samuel Beckett reached his own existential abyss, he neither screamed in terror nor laughed at the absurdity. If his life imitated his art, a wry grin creased his face, a belch escaped his lips, he thought momentaril...

    AnAlmostInterestingMoment - Cathy Rigbys husbands Late Night Catechism

    My first hint that I was maybe not the right guy to review this production came when one of the producers--Cathy Rigby's husband, in fact--walked onstage before the show and announced to the season ticket holders that the final show of the season wo...

    Same as the Old Boss - Curses of the New Economy workplace

    Image from No-CollarNow here comes a story of Generation X--whose badge of honor was that it never got a chance to be innocent--losing its innocence. And, as the Plimsouls, that great early '80s band used to sing, that's the oldest story in the worl...

    Editor! Editor! - Shaving Saving the World

    Saving the World is a baffling piece of theater, and not just because it's built on a framework of self-referential jokes, nonsensical plot devices and wink-and-a-nod humor. No, it's confusing because of playwright Jason Burkett's muddy politics and...
