Private Time: The Violence and Absurdity of Selfies

At a time when the selfie is ascendant — when its practitioners include the Pope, Barack Obama, and Kim Kardashian; when Oxford Dictionaries named "selfie" 2013's Word of the Year — it's worth remembering the genre's art-world progenitors. They helped…

Bouncer: Reaffirming the Social Contract at Cotter's Corner

Cotter's Corner is a dive that sits at the corner of Cotter and Mission streets in the Excelsior. By most accounts, there is never anyone inside, which might explain why the bartender bent over backward to accommodate our party of…
