Headed To SXSW
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"Before Midnight," "Don Jon's Addiction," "Upstream Color," Joss Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing" and news from John Sayles, Joe Swanberg, David Gordon Green and Jeff Nichols will screen at the 2013 South By Southwest Film Festival. Those films join the previously announced premieres of the Steve Carell comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" and the horror reboot "Evil Dead" on the SXSW lineup. “It’s an incredible privilege to sift through so much exciting work, and every year brings new surprises. Though trends emerge after the fact, not consciously while we’re programming, much of this year’s program embraces love and the need/search/desire for connection,” Janet Pierson, SXSW Film Conference and Festival Producer, said in a statement. “Many films reflect importantly on our culture and include intimate looks at iconic figures, and we’re lucky to have a plethora of hugely entertaining and audience pleasing films.

ShowPDX at Design Week Portland
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
One of the most interesting and eclectic shows to kick off Design Week on Tuesday was the ShowPDX furniture exhibit, a showcase of more than 60 unique and unconventional pieces by regional designers. First mentioned on MOD here, the exhibit is a biennial event that was launched in 2002 to create a platform for an often overlooked industry to gain some recognition. If you didn't make it yet, don't worry, the show will be running through the 27th, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12-2pm and 4-6pm, and Saturdays at 10am-2pm, at their show room at 1233 NW 12th. Some of the pieces I found the most interesting were made from repurposed items, like the Cooperage, a wine barrel-turned-table by Chris Bleiler at Fix Studio, and the Vintage Drum Tables, a totally rad series of, well, tables made from vintage drums, by Randy Rooker at Artisanworks. Some of my other favorites include the raw and minimalist Elm Nightstand, which is basically a polished tree-stump with a metal drawer on the side, by ...

The characters in Hal Salwen's "Denise Calls Up" are all looking for love. And probably some of them would find it, if only they had the time. But they're busy doing nothing, techno-yuppie style: fiddling with laptops, juggling call waiting, chatting on car and cell phones, sending faxes instead of showing up in the flesh. Lying around in pajamas,

A Fractious Old West in a Modern Moral Universe
NYTimes - about 23 years
The Old West has rarely looked as opulent as it does in "Tombstone," the director George P. Cosmatos's retelling of the Wyatt Earp story. In this capacious western with many modern touches, the Arizona boom town and site of the legendary O.K. Corral has a seedy, vaudevillian grandeur that makes it a direct forerunner of Las Vegas. The streets may
