The Kids Design Glass exhibition at Museum of Glass should not be reviewed in any critical way. It should, however, be applauded with gusto. This is a delightful show and a wonderful program.

SLOUCHING TOWARD UTOPIA: Conscious alienation

As artists, we often cordon ourselves off from the world in the name of creativity. It's easy to do - to pass off our own, deeply ingrained alienation as some sort of heroic individualism. When contrasted against the sort of pap that passes itself as "community", or "leisure," the dandyism

You've seen one. If you're lucky enough to have been psychoanalyzed at length, you may have seen plenty of them. A Rorschach Test. The inkblot thing - "Look at this image and tell me what you see, feel, sense. ..." A butterfly? A bullwhip? A butthole? A bag

Choose your adventure

No matter how jaded I sometimes feel about music, there's always something that comes along and takes me completely by surprise. I think the last thing to have that effect on me was St. Vincent - known for jarringly jumping back and forth from pop to folk to crunchy space-funk.

Having turned 21 a mere 10 months ago, I certainly can’t consider myself a bar aficionado (despite some impressive efforts). However, after stepping into Bob’s Java Jive a few weeks ago and entering its still, hushed atmosphere, I knew something was amiss. My friends and I came to see a

I woke up this morning and wrote six pages of strangeness. I’ve done this every day for six days now on the advice of an author — Julia Cameron, an award-winning journalist, screenwriter, director, filmmaker and self-help guru. Her book is called The Artist’s Way Every Day: A Year of
