The title “There Is No God” hardly suggests a bright sunny song, but nonetheless Mrs. Magician translates such an existential crisis into a fun, driving pop tune. It makes sense: the San Diego band is taking garage-rock and surf-pop into newer, much darker territory. Right at the opening line in the song,… » Read More

In the documentary Marlene, Dietrich herself phoned in some last interviews to director/actor Maximilian Schell, while refusing to be seen on camera because "I've been photographed enough." Mark Mori's labor of love documentary Bettie Page Reveals All also doesn't show us the iconic model as she was in her last years, but we hear Page narrate her life story. In hundreds of pictures Page looks at us levelly under her straight, lustrous black bangs. "I'm an illusion," Page says over the phone, age having hoarsened what must have been a honeyed Southern drawl. » Read More
It's narratively fractured, and only in moments does the familiar WWII metaphor emerge. That happens when raffish boatman Bard (Luke Evans, proving that a mullet can be workable) tries to warn the medieval-Baltic city of Laketown of the flying wrath to come. (He gets no help from the city's poncy, gouty Master, played by Stephen Fry.) Yet The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a huge improvement over An Unexpected Journey—it's a well-filled smorgasboard without much starch. » Read More

Here's a small sampling of shows and activities going on around downtown » Read More

As you read this, a transition is occurring on multiple levels. On the macro level, the San Jose State University Art Department is celebrating its centennial. That is, through various institutional moniker changes at the university level, college level, department level and concentration level, a 100-year continuous milestone of instruction has now been reached. » Read More
Freakin' hipsters. I've only just met him, but already Hamilton is so over me. When I walk in, he's sitting near his "study"-an armchair, desk, globe and house plant. I reach out to pet him, but he arches back and hisses before darting behind the fake ficus tree. Only after I ignore him for a beat and retreat to the couch does he spring up to his mini navy-and-white polka dot armchair and drape a paw over the armrest. He glances at me, the intruder, with his patented more-dapper-than-thou gaze. Fine. » Read More
