Deliver Us From Evil

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 30, 2007

... to care. And why should they? They think that it is every person’s God-given right to stand on a street corner with your buddies with guns, drugs and other illegal paraphernalia and shoot someone who happens to walk or drive by. The ACLU does not care one iota about the rights of the shooting victim – so long as the gang’s civil rights aren’t violated. What has America come to? I’ll tell you. America has become a spineless bunch of thumb-sucking crybabies. Sure there are those of us who still believe that America is a good and decent nation, but more ... (more)

NBA Free Agency Free-for-All

By dsnyder, published on Jul 6, 2007

...deal worth 24 million dollars with the Toronto Raptors. For anyone who says that is too much for a white guy with a sick three point shot, I think Bryan Colangelo knows what he’s doing. Kapono used the time that Dwayne Wade was out this year to shine, and lead the NBA in three point shooting percentage. The Raptors young talented roster should be a perfect fit for the type of distance shooting he showed off last season. Rashard Lewis is reportedly on his way to Orlando for a fat maxed out, $75-million, contract. Playing alongside Dwight Howard, they form one of the best front... (more)

King Kong Movie Review

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 25, 2007

...and work is scarce, people still crave their entertainment. Either through vaudeville or the movies. Which is what brings together struggling actress Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) and maverick director Carl Denham (Jack Black) Denham needs an actress quick for his new movie which he’s shooting on location. Ann’s not too sure as Denham is sorta reluctant to specify where they’re going but he promises riches, adventures and a chance for Ann to work with the writer Jack Driscoll (Adrian Brody) who she idolizes. It isn’t until Ann and Jack are aboard the... (more)

Tiger is Human After All!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jun 18, 2007

...after all. He’s not invincible. He’s capable of choking like anyone else. The man is infallible. Woods can get rattled. He can be had. Angel Cabrera hit all the perfect shots when he needed them most to hold off Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk by a stroke on Sunday at the U.S. Open, shooting a 1-under-par 69 at an unforgiving Oakmont and giving Argentina its first major championship in 40 years. For the second straight time in a major, Woods played in the final group and couldn't get the job done. Woods squandered birdie chances with his wedge and his putter, and Furyk paid... (more)

Meet the Bastard Children of the Neo- Modern Art Movement

By Venditto, published on Jun 7, 2007

...a wee bit of what I saw: I Shot Andy Warhol By: CORY ARCANGEL The basis of this piece is the classic Nintendo game Hogan’s Alley. A game originally released in 1985 and designed to be used with the Nintendo lightgun. The object of the game was to shoot gangsters while not shooting innocent bystanders. Well, this dude reprogrammed the game and titled it “Shoot Andy Warhol”. The title screen shouts out the name at the viewer. Then the next screen, just like the original game gives you simple instructions: “Shoot Andy’s Only”. Then it... (more)

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 6, 2007

...rate Las Vegas magician performing under the name Frank Cadillac. He’s not flashy enough to play the big rooms. He mainly works the small lounges where the losers nurse their drinks while trying to figure out how to tell their wives they’ve lost the kid’s college fund shooting craps. Cris deliberately stays under the radar because he does have a gift that is akin to real magic: he can see two minutes into his own future and tell what’s going to happen to him before it happens. He uses this talent to rake in some extra cash at the blackjack tables until one... (more)

Young SF filmmakers bring a fresh take to science fiction

By pennylane986, published on Jun 5, 2007

...sphere, we want industry people to hear these names,” Nottage said with enthusiasm. Some of the equipment they plan to work with is new in the industry, so its rental rates are set high and products are in high demand.

Heart of the Argos’ budget is set around $50,000, a number that will... (more)

Spider Man 3: Movie Review

By DLFerguson, published on May 24, 2007

...to Eddie Brock so that Eddie can become the villain Venom in the last 20 minutes of the film. What else was good about SPIDER-MAN 3? Topher Grace was really good as Eddie Brock/Venom. Peter Parker’s hilarious badass strut down a Manhattan street to a James Brown song while finger shooting the babes who give him these incredulous “He’s gotta be kiddin’” looks as he passes by. Rosemary Harris as Aunt May as she walks off with every damn scene she’s in. The scene where Flint Marko is trying to pull himself together after his accident and recover... (more)

A Photographer in the Big Apple: Justin Ouellette

By Fantomas, published on May 16, 2007

... much-needed artistic inspiration, I stumbled onto a photoblog which immediately caught my eye as one of the most soulful I had encountered up to that point. Intrigued by the unique photographs, I grew curious about the artist and thus discovered Justin Ouellette. A renegade photographer still shooting on film while the world around him turns digital, Justin is now a rare bird capturing the sights of Old New York in that Old New York style. After two years of distant yet fascinated observation, I finally decided to contact Justin to learn more about him and his artwork. This article is a... (more)

Barkley Bashes the Bay Area

By Ed Attanasio, published on May 3, 2007

...on his way to Alcatraz, in a jail cell or hanging out hugging guys in the Castro. The Cities by the Bay are mad, but what they don’t realize is that they’re playing directly into Barkley’s plans with their reactions. Barkley makes his money saying outrageous things. By shooting from the hip and going against the grain, he has established a reputation for being irreverent and controversial. That’s how he gets his name in the press. TNT loves it, because Barkley takes the heat and they get the ratings. Let’s face it -- the NBA playoffs this year... (more)
