Vic Ruggiero Of The Slackers Playing Cafe Stritch

Fifteen years into his solo career Vic Ruggiero is still finding ways to keep his material fresh

And sometimes it takes a while. “I wrote a song back in 2000,” Bronx-born singer and songwriter Vic Ruggiero says. “I’m telling you—I was on stage last year and it was the first time I ever understood one of the lyrics I wrote.” Such a breakthrough explains Ruggiero’s focus… » Read More

Review: 'Ex Machina'

The latin phrase "deus ex machina" describes a theatrical device in which an actor in the role of God appears on stage to neatly wrap things up. It's artistically primitive, but it still exists in evangelist Christian films. Alex Garland's science fiction film Ex Machina-a masterpiece if ever I've seen one-seemingly clips the God from the equation in depicting a bad demiurge of a high-tech tycoon. » Read More

Review: 'The Water Diviner'

Essentially bad, but certainly engrossing, like an unusually well-researched supermarket novel, Russell Crowe's feature-film directorial debut is full of visual scope and rich color. Shortly after the end of the Great War, in 1919, Connor (Crowe) is an Australian farmer from Victoria state who has the gift to witch out water. After he is widowed, Connor decides to use his penchant for finding things hidden underground to discover the final resting place of his three sons-killed in Turkey at the battle of Gallipoli. » Read More

'Brian Wall: Squaring the Circle,' Features Recent Work from Sculptor

More than any other media, sculpture has undergone a transformation from striving for the most realistic representation (statues and busts) to virtually whatever an artist can put together in three dimensions, using whatever materials he or she chooses. As a result, Jeff Koons can amass a boat load of flowers, Fred Sandback can stretch yarn from ceiling to floor and Felix Gonzalez-Torres can heap a pile of cough drops in the corner and call it a sculpture. » Read More

Review: 'Once' at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts

Behind the Scenes at the Valley's School for Chefs

It's 5 o'clock somewhere—I'm guessing within swimming distance of the Azores. But there are no tropical beaches here and I hear no wine specials in Portuguese. It's about eleven in the morning and I'm quietly enjoying an early happy hour at the International Culinary Center in Campbell. Located in a fairly large, nondescript brown box on the corner of San Tomas Expressway and Hamilton Avenue, the South Bay's premier cooking school shares digs with a Gold's Gym. I couldn't help but smile as I spied the poor saps from the parking lot, doing their leg bends and arm swings behind tinted windows, torturing their bodies while I was about to gulp wine and demolish an assortment of fine meats and cheeses. » Read More
