News, Your Humble Narrator Train of Thought: A Long- Standing Philosophical Experiment Is Put to the Test on the Streets

Mission District venue The Lab is intentionally blank. With no signage out front, no decorations on the white walls and no stage in the main room, the unadorned space funnels all attention to the performance inside. This August, a large…

Cheese puffs and sexual pokes

I've walked into the Monk's Kettle multiple times, looked around at the wall-to-wall people, and decided on other, less packed venues. But last week some friends and I decided to put our names in the hat and ford the hour-long…

Heckled to Death: The Mystery of a Good Joke

I love mysteries, preferably British ones with asexual detectives who have odd personality quirks. My entire Netflix queue consists of what my roommate calls "tea and death," disc after disc of various murders that take place in England. I'm fascinated…

Having a baby seems like a never-ending series of hard questions: “What if I don't like my kid?” The eternal “Is that normal?” Or “Is it OK to eat the placenta, as long it's cooked?” And on and on. Then…

Pot's for pussies

I'm an eight-at-a-time Netflix junkie, which means either I'm a cinephile or I have no life. Or both. Anywho, a documentary on the site caught my eye the other day. It was called Nietzsche and the Nazis. I put that…

SSRI-ay Cap'n

Of the small handful of people whom I consider personal friends in this town, I know three who are on antidepressants (as am I) and a fourth who takes this thing called SAMe, which is an herbal antidepressant that apparently…

Electrelane

Alert the pretension police, get out the Sartre Memorial Billy Clubs, load up the hogwashed paddy wagon: Electrelane's second album, The Power Out, has artsy-fartsy nightmare written all over it. On the disc, the Brighton quartet sings in Spanish, German,…

Now Showing!

Buzz around town had it this play features serious and extensive dancing, and the buzz proved true: Mary Carbonara has bravely salvaged Howard D. Hain's story of Friedrich Nietzsche's mental decline with her competently choreographed dream sequences. Unfortunately, the script…

REAL ASTROLOGY For an Unreal World

Aries (March 21-April 19): One of the ultimate challenges many Aries face is how to synchronize their two ruling archetypes: the lover and the warrior. It's a daunting task: trying to be true to the tender, generous instincts of the…

REAL ASTROLOGY For an Unreal World

Aries (March 21-April 19): The ancient myths don't tell us, but I'm guessing Hercules was an Aries. Like you, that heroic pioneer scared up more adventures in one lifetime than most people do in 10 incarnations. In fact, what you've…
