    End Times - It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

    I was walking out of Trader Joe's last week when an extra-smiley man in a tie-dyed dashiki stepped in front of me. "Would you like to invite Jesus into your life to be your Savior and Lord?" he asked, beaming maniacally. "Actually, no," I replied....

    Suburban Pall - Unfinished symphonies

    Colin Chillag's paintings at Modified Arts make you feel like you've seen them before, in an earlier life. The one of a grandmotherly woman holding a baby is eerily familiar, as is the one of the middle-aged couple standing in front of an elaborat...

    Art Scene - Current shows

    Puppy Love - Nintendogs' charm will win over the most jaded of gamers

    It's ugly to watch a grown man gush over a puppy. The kissing. The cooing. The "widdle-doggie" talk. Embarrassing stuff. So it was with trepidation that I approached Nintendogs, the cuddly dog-rearing sim for Nintendo DS. A million and a half peop...
