Fortune Telling

Before Oksana Marafioti was 15, she had touched the Siberian tundra and the Mongolian desert, enjoyed the privileges of performing royalty in Russia, and suffered the indignity of being labeled a “gyp” at school. Then her family moved to America,…

Music, Reviewed Weezer


If not for an album called Pinkerton, Weezer might be regarded simply as longtime purveyors of goofy Top 40 singles. But with that scrappy 1996 follow-up to their smash-hit debut, "The Blue Album," Rivers Cuomo and company made one of…

Savage Love

Simmering below the squeamish elder-care euphemism "uncharted territory" is a fearful awareness that when it comes to dealing with the growing army of senile parents, we have no idea what the hell we're doing. Tamara Jenkins plumbs the depths of…

Best Sushi-on-Acid Experience Without Actually Having to Be on Acid
