I can still remember when I first heard Armored Saint's awesome 1984 debut, March of the Saint. Purely epic. And yet, listening to their latest stuff, it seems they've only improved.
San Jose's growing indie and punk scene is both prolific and polyamorous. Case in point: Rex Goliath. Featuring members of the Record Winter and Color, Rex Goliath already have a solid three-song EP, How Many Bullets?

All throughout the ’90s, Gustaf Fjelstrom kept his head down—playing bass in the background of local power trio Maximum Indifference. It was a role he was used to. Most of his musical life he has acted in supporting roles, playing less popular instruments. He played bass for his high school jazz band and… » Read More

There are two wolves fighting in Brad Bird's Tomorrowland—inside the movie's premise, I mean, not actually on screen. Which wolf wins? The script includes the haggard anecdote of the wolves named "Hope" and "Fear," putatively told by a wise old Cherokee but in truth cooked up by Rev. Billy Graham. » Read More
Canadians may feel this matter keenly, but some consider beavers the world's most boring animal. Boring is relative. I'd personally consider Michelle Rodriguez scowling at flying automobiles boring, as opposed to a real favorite, the dam-building extravaganza Beavers (1988) originally filmed in IMAX back when Christopher Nolan was but an ambitious film student. Beavers is a hypnotically relaxing film, and its waddling stars never fail to induce zen-like calm. » Read More
Glass art rarely gets its due, in comparison to fiber, ceramics, clay and other sculptural methods. Most of the time, glass is relegated to utilitarian contexts or decorative shlock, which is why several galleries around town have curated glass-themed shows in conjunction with the Glass Art Society Conference hitting town in a few weeks. Everyone involved—both at the conference and gallery levels—is trying to shatter the idea that glass is simply decor. » Read More
Thoughtful, surreal and magical, the latest exhibit at Empire Seven Studios-Cinderscape, by Oakland-based artist and designer, Jaime Lakatos-explores the devastating impact humans have had on the natural world. Lakatos' art is both disturbing and familiar-all dusted with a touch of fantasy. Her sculptures of animals are brooding, dark and sometimes ambiguous. Some are spotted with patches of real fur; others support stuffed birds on their backs; all feature a texture reminiscent of charred wood. » Read More
It starts with a nagging twinge, right at the base of the skull. Barely perceptible at first, the sensation grows stronger, emanating from somewhere around the medulla oblongata-that most primordial region of the brain-before spreading throughout the entire cranial cavity. From there it seizes hold of the chest and lodges itself in the pit of the stomach, before radiating outwards to the limbs. The entire body soon begins to tremble and it becomes clear what it is at last. » Read More
Right now, approximately 50 pieces of glass art fill the Carmen Castellano Fine Arts Gallery at San Jose City College. Just one of many glass shows already installed or about to be installed around San Jose, this one comes with a catchy title: Sparks: California Glass Networks 1960s to Present, the Glass Movement Catches Fire in California. » Read More
