When it comes to Pee-Wee Herman, either you get it, or you don’t. As a die-hard fan who was 11 when his Saturday morning children’s show hit the airwaves, I was nothing short of obsessed when I heard he was re-mounting his original 1981 stage production on Broadway this fall. And when I finally got to see it for myself, the experience literally took my breath away. A Technicolor fantasia of anthropomorphized furniture, freaky friends (of the human and ... Read More

It’s never quite shaken that reputation of being Vegas’ developmentally disabled cousin, no matter how many entrepreneurs have descended upon its carcass. So it was almost cheeky that Perez Hilton chose this destination ... Read More
The last time I wrote about Promethea here I'd just gotten my hands on the first Absolute volume, and it had blown my mind."It's less a narrative than a trip, fables layered on top of stories and characters' identities shifting into dreams. If Watchmen is Moore's Ulysses, then Promethea is Finnegans Wake and it demands the same experience--stop trying to make it make sense and just let it wash over you and enjoy the ride."The second volume arrived last week, ...
