Nate Hill has been sewing together body parts for the last six months, but not in a Silence of the Lambs people-jacket sort of way. He's an artist using animal parts to create a life-sized female body for his newest project, called E.V.E. (Earthly View of Eden). The companion to his A.D.A.M. Project will be on display in a Halloween show at The Silent Barn. What better way to celebrate the holiday?

I couldn't find anything BUST-y on the racks for the past couple of weeks, and I know you gals were missing me, so I picked up this short graphic novel that came highly recommended by a couple of friends.
Suburban Glamour is an indie-rock fairy tale, not an entirely original story but a fun one. Jamie McKelvie's art is what really distinguishes this book from other changeling stories--it's bright-candy-colored and good enough to eat, with a foxy rock'n'roll ... Read More

Guest of Cindy Sherman is a compelling documentary about a guy who falls in love with the most influential female art star of our time, Cindy Sherman, and gets lost in the relationship. It's about art fame and the seeming inadequacy of being the 'plus 1.' Paul H-O has made both a touching boyfriend movie, and a scathing portrayal of the art world, with great footage from the 90's art scene.
I think like alot of people, ... Read More
