Superhero in real life

I have been waiting for this for years: a superhero movie where the actions of the superheroes have consequences in the real world. They always leave a wake of crashed cars, bursting fire hydrants, exploding gas stations and toppling bridges behind them, and never go back to clean up. But

Saturday, Dec. 22: Beatboxxx XXmas Special

We knew this girl in college who dressed like a certain pop star we all knew and loved; she was what we punkers called a "Madonna-wanna." We ended up hanging out with this miniature pop star replica, spending endless hours watching her do this dance at house parties.  How'd she

Pirate cuisine

Pirate food on the high seas tastes like crap. Food holds often flood, rotting our flour and sugar. We heavily salt our vegetables and meats destroying all flavor, so Cook needs lots of spices, which he keeps under lock and key, to improve the taste. After weeks at sea our

From th’ Garden

I was standing by the pool outside the Museum of Glass Thursday noon, enjoying the new sculptural installation, Mirrored Murrelets by Joseph Gregory Rossano, when a pair of pirates burst out of the pool like breaching whales and trussed me up with rope so old it was sprouting barnacles. “Measure
