    Body Language - Show says it with figures

    Bored Games - All the beer in the world can't save Mario Party 8

    Everyone's got a different sense of what makes a killer party. For kids, maybe it's whacking a piata and overdosing on cake. For adults, it could be sticking a beer bong down your gullet and declaring yourself Mayor of Schlitz City. But since 1999, ...

    Wicked Revelation - Playing well in Peoria

    I guess I've been asleep on the job. I knew that Theater Works had, at last, moved into its new, permanent digs at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts (which I know! sounds like the punch line to some kind of joke but is really sort of swel...

    Theater Scene - What's running now

    Bat Boy: The Musical: Although Nearly Naked Theatre's production benefits from Damon Dering's darkly comic, crafty direction and from a pair of performances that help elevate it from high camp to something closer to art, Bat Boy is ultimately a music...

    Beyond the Norm - Photos are off the beaten Arizona highway

    Several years ago, I moved to Chicago. Most of the friends I made had never traveled west of Omaha, so they liked to tease me for being a cowpoke from Arizona. One so-called pal wondered if I missed my pet tumbleweed. Another asked if I grew up next ...

    Branching Out - New little world of wonder

    Elf Life - Shadowrun is fresh, exciting -- and on its way to being obsolete

    Once upon a time, the world breathed magic. Some believed this magic should belong only to the powerful, while others felt it was for everyone. So all the world's beings went to war. The first battle took place in Brazil, where a lone elf with a snip...

    Father's Day - Remembrance of things paint

    Growing up in South Dakota, Brian Boner remembers being surrounded by hummingbirds. "They were everywhere," he says, "and if you stood very still, they'd come right up to you and buzz around your face like you were a giant sunflower." It's a memor...

    Little, pink weasel-cats making sweet love atop bulbous greenery. Such is the kinky world I entered at "Renegade Clay: 5 Views from the West," at ASU Art Museum's Ceramics Research Center. The title's a little overdramatic and silly (Renegade? Ca...

    Car Lust - Take a ride with Forza 2, the greatest car sim ever

    I was driving home from work the other day when it occurred to me that, despite being college-educated and reasonably intelligent, I have no idea how my car works. I know the gas goes in, because I do that part. But after that it gets fuzzy. When the...

    Bat's Entertainment - Biting satire from tabloid trash
