    Tangelico and A Cube with a View Bring the Avant-Garde to Life

    A door slams. A man in a black unitard angrily stalks onto a bare stage, carrying a bar stool. He sets the stool down, then spends the next several minutes moving the stool from place to place and doing the sort of limbering and breathing exercises a...

    In "No Better Place" at Bentley Gallery, Is Thomas Skomski Making Art about Death or Chronicling the Death of Art?

    Scottsdale's galleries are proof positive that in a recession, art is one of the first luxuries to go. Longtime residents Victoria Boyce and Leslie Levy closed their doors in 2009 and went online. A dozen or so smaller galleries followed. One Scottsd...

    Senator Linda Gray Seeks to End the Tax Break Benefiting Historical Homeowners, but Will She Change Her Mind When She Sees the Dilapidated, Unloved Homes?

    Ugly Trellis House is finally gone. This large, ramshackle 1920s bungalow, kitty-corner to my own, has been glowering at me ever since I moved into the neighborhood seven years ago. I could see its beauty, but I had to look hard, past the cheap, u...

    Not Even a Sock Puppet Can Save Nearly Nakeds Fuddy Meers from Over-Acting

    I found that if I squinted, I could pretend I was watching a master acting class led by thespian Debra K. Stevens, and not a failed production of David Lindsay-Abaire's Fuddy Meers. It was easy to keep this little fantasy going because Stevens -- who...

    Jen Urso Exorcises Her Personal Demons In White Space at A.E. England Gallery

    Frida Kahlo and Pablo Picasso created art inspired by their own personal tragedies. They took a risk, because personal pieces are often so intimate that audiences can't relate. Local artist Jen Urso successfully overcame this challenge -- and the dem...

    Van Buren Street: Phoenixs Former Main Drag Is Now Just a Drag

    Editor's note: This begins an occasional series about Van Buren Street. I'm obsessed with Van Buren Street. I spend way too much time thinking about this once-bustling thoroughfare, which rather quickly became -- and stayed -- a miles-long punch l...

    Keep Drinking

    It has been annoyingly, painfully obvious to me for the past decade or so what my New Year's resolution should be: I ought to quit drinking. But for serious boozers like me, knowing that you "ought" to quit is right up there with politicians knowi...

    Stop Exercising

    I don't exercise. And I don't mean I've allowed my membership to the gym to expire. I'm not talking about how I should really increase the distance I jog every other day, or that the daily "fun" activities I've planned to increase my heart rate ha...

    Quit Your Job

    When I resolved to quit my "day job" last year so I could return to freelance writing full-time, a few of my closest friends were flabbergasted. I knew what they were thinking: I was crazy for leaving a decent, stable job with advancement potential i...

    Give Up Positive Thinking

    Florence Foster Jenkins was Glorious, Phoenix Theatres Take on Her Life Is Not so Much

    Those of us who get our kicks collecting recordings of people who can't sing (my current fave: Telly Savalas' 1975 vinyl opus Who Loves Ya, Baby?) already knew about Florence Foster Jenkins, a tone deaf old songbird beloved by fans of the absurd. And...

    Let Your Kid Get a Tattoo

    Tattoo shops have a certain intimidating charm. Despite Rancid and Disturbed (punctuated, thankfully, by the occasional and soothing Pearl Jam or Green Day tune) piped in through the sound system, they are orderly (even if Arizona has virtually no ov...

    Be a Girly Girl

    The modern woman can be a real moron. And when it comes to relationships, I've definitely been one. I've spent the past 12 years getting myself into (and out of) serious relationships. And by "serious," I mean I dated men I cared deeply about a...

    Only a handful of days remain until the end of the Naughties, which means it's time to look back on this massively madcap decade. And, frankly, it's been something of a downer. While sci-fi flicks promised rocket-powered cars and orgasmatrons by now,...
