The Sweet Face of Evil

Any overeducated, Prius-driving, lefty cultural elitist worth his daily $10 coffee drink knows that America spent eight catastrophic years in the grip of a wicked puppet named W. The privileged faux-Texan flaunted his village idiocy, not caring whether people knew…

Dick Cheney, You're Under Arrest!

Say what you want about Code Pink -- we can always count on its members to keep it real and, well, colorful. Remember when the activist group glitter-bombed former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty as he signed books in San Francisco?…

Muslim Photographer Surveils His Own Life in a Post-9/11 World

Wearing garish green flip-flops and sporting dyed yellow hair, Hasan Elahi is standing in the Intersection 5M gallery and talking about his work. And talking some more. And talking even more. Elahi regurgitates minutiae about a taco he ate in…

Howlin Rain Responds to Being Used by Dick Cheney

 Arthur magazine's Jay Babcock hipped me to the fact that when former VP Dick Cheney spoke to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Feb. 18, he used as his rile-up-the-troops entrance song "Dancers at the End of Time" by none…

The Son Also Rises

Sitting in the back of the restaurant at New York's überchic Royalton Hotel in an orange polo shirt and khakis, Oliver Stone looks out of place among the bedheaded hipsters otherwise casing the joint (unless, perhaps, he's instigating his own…

Flight of the Monkeys

In their dubious quest to appease every last parent from the Bible Belt to Berkeley, the namby-pambies at Pixar, Disney, and other studios have forgotten that fairy tales are supposed to be scary. In addition to the all-important moral, children…

Do you find that trivia nights suck the life out of you by exposing, incrementally, one question at a time, that you have the memory of a bucket? Fortunately, What's Your Answer?? Comedy and Trivia Night could care less if…

On Your Mother's Grave

In America, profanity is thought to comprise 13 percent of all adult conversation. Swearing is, in fact, so commonplace we take it for granted, quickly employing hackneyed oaths such as shit, fuck, son of a bitch, and goddamn to drive…

Our critics weigh in on local theater

Glengarry Glen Ross. Who'd ever think the inside world of a small real estate office would contain such colorful dialogue as: "Ever take a dump that makes you feel you slept for 12 hours?" Leave it to David Mamet to…

Surge This

Masterfully edited and cumulatively walloping, Charles Ferguson's No End in Sight turns the well-known details of our monstrously bungled Iraq War into an enraging, apocalyptic litany of fuck-ups. One may have already heard some or all of the absurd, shameful,…

Making a Killing

The San Francisco Mime Troupe's latest political comedy has plenty of wit and insight that would have been better served by trimming its excess plot. The story at the heart of this play is one of individual responsibility — will…

Why is Jello Biafra San Francisco's Sacred Cow?

Outspoken former Dead Kennedys frontman, Jello Biafra, made a none-too-rare spoken word performance at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco last night. And while I'm not quite sure what I was expecting, I certainly wasn't hoping for a…

Not long ago, videogames were about collecting coins and rescuing the princess. Now you're more likely to gun her down in a drive-by. Or eat her alive. Welcome to JAWS Unleashed. You're a pitiless great white, hungry for human flesh.…

Wild Pitch

Boys are oiling their mitts, men have started playing hooky, and Dick Cheney just one-hopped it like a pussy. Yes, baseball season is in full swing, and our dip-juice cup runneth over. Normally, this is cause for heavy titillation --…

If I could find two words to link several otherwise very different productions I've seen over the past few weeks, they would be "Dick" and "Cheney." From The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee to Voyeurs de Venus, playwright Lydia…

Songs of Freedom

Clearly a lot of time and effort goes into selecting the music for Democratic and Republican campaign events. The two camps must have teams of people sitting around long boardroom tables, eating Chinese food and wearing out boomboxes till the…

When Pigs Fly

The best part of When Pigs Fly -- a deliberately goofy, gayer-than-thou musical that did well off-Broadway in 1996 -- comes when the shrill, tall birdbrain of a guidance counselor, Miss Roundhole, spins offstage in an ecstasy of petty rage.…

Mister Smith Goes to Obscuristan

Mr. Smith Goes to Obscuristan consists of the same lefty agit prop satire the Mime Troupe has offered for years, sugared with a few good songs and one hilarious dead-ringer performance by Ed Holmes as Dick Cheney. Otherwise it's blissfully…
