My favorite albums of 2007

I noticed recently that the Internet, music festivals, movies, television shows and even commercials have replaced radio as the place I find new music. Should I be embarrassed to say that I bought a song because I heard it on a commercial? In the past I think I would have

The never-ending war

An Iliad by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare, not to be confused with The Iliad by Homer, is a one-person, one-act play, and it is as powerful and as intense as anything you're likely to see this year. Peterson and O'Hare's An Iliad will be performed two nights only in

Getting into the holiday spirit

Now that the season has finally begun, with the temperature dropping, the rain (and potentially snow) clouds rolling in, leaves on the ground and an earlier-than-preferred sunset; it's time for the holiday activities to commence!

Creature comforts

The autumn and winter seasons are made for eating. It's the law of nature. Biology courses were never my strong suit but I think it's a thing ... right? As the days get shorter, we are trapped in a perpetual darkness, chilled to the bone, and craving for something to

The gift of art
