C2SV: Christian Rich, Producers Of Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples, Performing At The Continental

Scratch Bros.: Production duo Christian Rich have produced for artists from Lil’ Kim to Vince Staples.

Though they may not enjoy the same level of recognition as some of their name-brand peers, production duo Christian Rich certainly have some serious behind-the-boards bona fides. Beginning with their first major production credit on Lil’ Kim’s 2003 album, La Bella Mafia, these two brothers—born in Chicago and raised in Nigeria—have lent their… » Read More

Darcy James Argue To Debut Conspiracy Theory-Themed ‘Real Enemies,’ At Stanford’s Bing

Connecting the Dots: Renowned jazz composer, Darcy James Argue, worked with Slate writer Isaac Butler to create ‘Real Enemies,’ a multimedia meditation on the history of conspiratorial thinking in America.

False flags, chemtrails, second gunmen and perpetual surveillance.

'The Walk'

When viewed in IMAX and 3D, The Walk is positively lethal. Technical wizard Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump) directs material treated in James Marsh's 2008 documentary Man on Wire-the true account of the French acrobat Philippe Petit's tightrope walk between the World Trade Center's twin towers. This ultimate high-wire act, performed 110 stories up, was a free, illegal show for the morning crowds. » Read More

'The Martian'

Epic and yet surprisingly playful, Ridley Scott's adaptation of Mountain View author Andy Weir's best seller, The Martian, contrasts the vastness of space with the intimacy of a DIY podcast. It begins with a Martian tempest imperiling the Ares III mission. Astronaut Mark Watney is speared by flying debris. He's presumed dead by his fellow crew members on the Hermes as they hastily evacuate the red planet. » Read More

Artists Including Me: William Wegman

In an untucked, partially unbuttoned, red plaid shirt, William Wegman looks as if he's just left his studio to oversee the final installation of Artists Including Me, now on display in the San Jose Museum of Art's capacious upstairs salon. Curators circle around the artist like the ardent, independent geometries that float around a Kandinsky canvas, each one unique and vibrant in their own right. » Read More

San Jose Stage Company's New Production of RFK

A plaque in San Jose's St. James Park marks the spot where, in 1968, Robert F. Kennedy delivered a rousing speech to an audience of 10,000, shortly after announcing his candidacy for U.S. president. By June of that year, shortly after winning the California primary, he was dead from an assassin's bullet. » Read More

C2SV Preview: Better Living Through Video Games

In the summer of 2009, Jane McGonigal was strong and healthy. She'd been a runner for years, trained for marathons and was working on her first book, Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World. It was just another ordinary day, and she was in a hurry—rushing around her apartment, when she dropped some papers on the floor. » Read More
