    BACKSTAGE GAS

    What's funny? High-density theories on the nature of humor have clogged the arteries of many a fathead. Henri Bergson thought humor resulted when human behavior began to resemble the predictable repetition of machines, while Sigmund Freud saw humor a...

    FREEDY AND HORACE

    So there I was driving down Van Buren on my way to work, mind numb as usual, when I saw it. It was huge. It was grinning. It nearly made me lose control of my vehicle. It was Linda McCartney. Well, a billboard with her picture...

    A BLOSSOM SPILLS THE BEANSROBIN WILSON ON SUCCESS, SONGWRITING AND PERSONAL WATERCRAFT

    RECORDINGS

    Laurie Anderson's latest is more of what she does most. She's again putting out experimental, highbrow hoo-ha, spewing words in big spaces between beats. Occasionally, she'll try to force a melody, and it almost works on the almost American gothic "M...

    WIPE OUT

    It is Sunday as I write this, and when I stepped out of my house at the crack of noon, I found more than just the Arizona Republic waiting for me. There was a roll of toilet paper in a plastic bag hanging from my doorknob. (Wickeder wags t...

    MR. HOWL - ALL POETRY AND NO MUSIC MAKE ALLEN A DULL BOY; GINSBERG'S BOX PROVES HE'S ANYTHING BUT

    In 1955, Allen Ginsberg came like a banshee into the public eye with his poem "Howl." Filled with rage, honesty and raunchiness, the work immediately brought down the guillotine of U.S. censorship and made him a hero of the poetic underground...

    ALL THE WAY LIVE

    It was 10:40 p.m., and still no sign of any aging Kiss fans sporting painted cat faces. Nor would there be, but then again, maybe the sight of 35-year-old guys with beer guts and Kiss tee shirts should have been spectacle enough for one night. A...
