    Park and Wreck - Will defacing the Civic Center be the mayor's legacy?

    Last month I wrote a piece about the Civic Center Conservancy in which I implied that the group's members were a bunch of clowns ("Civic Circus," August 10). In the weeks since, I've really come to regret that metaphor and feel a little guilty. After...

    Fantme Afrique - Laboratory of Art and Ideas at Belmar

    Monkey Trials - Super Monkey Ball Adventure takes a wrong turn.

    What could be more fun than monkeys trapped in plastic hamster balls? That's the strange philosophy of Super Monkey Ball, a puzzle series that debuted in 2001. Much as with Marble Madness, the goal here is to cross the finish line without falling o...

    Turning Tricks

    I Am a Sex Addict (IFC) Caveh Zahedi has made a movie of our times -- a strange mix of self-absorption, shamelessness in the pursuit of fame, and sex. Most shocking of all is that it works. Part fiction and documentary, confessional and comedy, the...

    The Shlock of the New - The New Play Festival offers one hit, two misses.

    Making theater where there has been little or no theater before -- the small towns east of Boulder, for example -- is an exemplary activity, and finding new plays to produce is doubly so. But the process is also highly risky. It takes thousands of sc...
