    Almost Famous - It's never been easier to start your own (fake) band

    At a Guitar Hero tournament a few months back, one kid complained to me that Expert Mode is "too easy." Then he demonstrated the game's secret Hyper Speed mode. My pupils nearly ruptured at the sight of him as he navigated the light-speed stream of c...

    Trite Christmas - Our design columnist wouldn't have it any other way

    I've made a career out of carping about what an unsightly city we live in, and bitching about our hellish, nine-month-long summers has become my avocation. But in December, I find it hard to be cranky about anything, because the weather here is idyll...

    Kerry McCue - Remembering the cone with the curl on top

    She's no princess, but Nearly Naked favorite Kerry McCue (starring this week and next in that company's Metamorphoses) is as close to stage royalty as we have around these parts. Royalty that used to work at Dairy Queen, that is. I knew I wanted ...

    Cellar Beware - They obviously should not have gone in the basement

    The Girl Next Door (Anchor Bay) If the horror of Saw was a poblano pepper, this here is the habaero. Derived from Jack Ketchum's infamous novel, sometimes word-for-word, The Girl Next Door -- based on a true story -- is a sort of Hostel meets Sta...

    Future Shock - Mass Effect is riveting -- and a bit aggravating, too

    For a game that's considered Microsoft's premier 360 title this holiday season, it's amazing how sloppy Mass Effect is. Graphical glitches distract from otherwise fascinating character designs and alien vistas, constant stops and stutters lengthen lo...

    Greek Tragedy - Wake him when it's Ovid

    I'd been looking forward to Nearly Naked Theatre's production of Metamorphoses ever since they announced it as part of their lineup two seasons ago. Back then, the folks at Nearly Naked wisely postponed the show once they realized that its elaborate ...

    Reviews and Previews of What's Running Now

    Seussical: This cheerful tuner based on the much-loved books of Dr. Seuss screams to be seen by -- dare we say it? -- kids of all ages, even those who haven't yet met Horton (who heard a Who) or visited the Jungle of Nool. Childsplay's version, which...

    Fired Up - A breakthrough for breakables

    We wasteful Americans adore plastic. Cups, plates, and vessels don't require cleanup after use -- we can just pitch them and ignore the environmental ramifications. That makes breakables downright retro. It's no wonder that ceramics has experienced a...

    Wednesday Surprise - Good art in Chandler -- who knew?

    Maybe I'm just a sucker for scandal, but it wasn't until the recent squabble over the Downtown Chandler Artwalk that I became jazzed to drive out there. The East Valley Art Guild used to be in charge of the monthly event, held on first Wednesdays but...

    Mural, Mural on the Wall - Paint and suffering

    When they painted over the Rose Johnson mural outside Paisley Violin, I was bereft. I doubted I'd find an outdoor mural I liked as much; I'm a Rose fan from way back. There's something about her brightly colored, solemn-faced figures that I can't get...
