logo

Earlier this month, as he and his friends were having drinks in San Francisco, Cory Althoff was bemoaning the fact that he’d need to cut his night short if he wanted to make it back to his own bed in Los Altos. It was either that—or, if he wanted to stay out… » Read More

Movies

'Big Eyes'

You can't fight cute. That much is clear in Tim Burton's mid-1960s comedy, Big Eyes—which follows the reign of the highly marketable art of Walter and Margaret Keane. For a few years the pair were among the most famous artists in the world. Millionaires and movie stars lined up to purchase paintings by the Keanes, who specialized in figures of children, mostly girls, with vastly oversized, pleading eyes—great black vacuums, in which glowed gibbous-moon crescents of gold. Burton has a valuable collection of these waif paintings. » Read More

'The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies'

Bleary visuals, a blearier narrative and a stage groaning with characters in search of a stopping point É The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies is the keystone in the arch between the two trilogies. The masonry is shaky: obvious little-person stunt doubles in the long shots, billions of winged animated critters churning up the leaden skies in the final battles. » Read More

The Arts

'The MeshugaNutcracker'

Here's the premise of The MeshugaNutcracker! in a nutshell: It's December, and eight residents of the little Jewish village of Chelm are presenting their annual Chanukah pageant, a collection of songs and vignettes celebrating the Festival of Lights, with tunes lifted from a certain Christmas-themed Tchaikovsky ballet. But their director has disappeared with the props, leaving the actors—each of whom has the IQ of a bagel—to improvise. » Read More

'Stoned Moon' opens at Stanford

The elegant curvature of a great egret, juxtaposed with the rigid and towering white Saturn V rocket. Both share at least one similarity beyond their chalky pallor-the ability to spring from muggy terra firma of Florida's Atlantic coast and soar heavenward. This shared capability is just one way of interpreting the images shown in "Sky Garden," one of the many prints in Robert Rauschenberg's Stoned Moon series, which chronicled the 1969 Apollo 11 mission. » Read More

Features & Columns

The Analog Advocate

Brian Hartsell stares off into the distance, focusing on nothing in particular, allowing himself to get lost in the music. "Monk's Mood," the first track off Thelonius Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall, is still spinning when he comes to. The waves of sound weave their way through and around the particles of dust, which hang in the air, illuminated by the shafts of lingering daylight sliding through the venetian blinds. » Read More

Rich Jacobs' Move Photography Invades Seeing Things Gallery

After slithering into Seeing Things Gallery on a Friday afternoon, I am surrounded by aging punk musicians, photographers and skaters. In most cases, each person here is all three. Owner Jai Tanju is banging nails into the wall, prepping for his latest exhibit: one of Rich Jacobs' Move Photography shows. Some of the work is up, while more of it sits on tables ready to hang. In many cases, the artists are half-academic and half-punk, meaning, I immediately feel a sense of belonging. » Read More
