Later that year I got myself a Desert Storm air fare and headed to Paris, where I got to ... Read More
  Emily Rems has already done the job here of explaining why all the Sex and the City haters need to get a grip, but that’s not what swayed me to go see this. Maybe because I was expecting to hate it, or maybe because I was in an opening night audience full of women shouting things at the screen like, “damn, girl, work that dress.” Or, “oh no she dih-n’t!” But when the credits rolled, I wasn’t ready for it to be over. ...

   The name Lego came from two Danish words meaning "Play Well". Founded in 1932, who would have imagined the staying power of that first Automatic Building Brick? But these bricks are made for building and that's just what they'll do. Sixty years later, building on its successes, the company lent the Lego name to the first feature length direct-to-discount-video-bin Lego film - The Adventures of Clutch Powers - released this past February. Unless ... Read More

Sword of My Mouth

BY Kelly McClure in Artsy |

I learned of Sword of My Mouth, the post-rapture graphic novel by Jim Munroe and Shannon Gerard through a vanity prompted fluke.

I sent in my picture and received a portrait back the very next day, which is shown down below. Making actual contact with one of the authors of the ... Read More
