“If you were to name the man in the moon,” I once asked my children, “what would you name him?” “David,” answered my daughter, who was cultivating a white-hot obsession for the actor David Duchovny. “Igor,” said her brother, who had recently discovered the joys of Stravinsky.

Karol Franks Photography

Our ex is a surfer. He came to it late in life, after having desired, dreamed, ruminated, planned, budgeted, and procrastinated for years (eons, actually). But finally he found the right board, the perfect wet suit, the exact leash and he was off, the only black man amongst a sea of white boys. Luckily, some […]

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Anthony Marra explores the extraordinary circumstances of war that bring both tragedy and humor, often in equal doses, in this complex tale of the Chechen wars (yes, there were two) that captures the fragmentation of war.

Greg Critser Cartoons

There is, apparently, a happy marriage between food, politics, pop culture and watercolor, as evidenced by Greg Critser’s artwork that adorns the walls of Euro Pane 1 on Colorado Boulevard. The Pasadena artist displays a knack for revealing absurdity as well as creating it, as each of his simple, brightly colored and simple featured comics […]

Among the Missing: David Pritchard

He began as a jazz/rock guy touring Europe with the Gary Burton Quartet in 1969. Through the decades and over many “albums,” Pasadena native David Pritchard has evolved and refined his talent. According to a review in Textura, Pritchard shifted to a “more classically influenced acoustic style” that was then “splendidly documented on Among the […]

Elemental: Light

Elemental: Light

The funny thing about light is that you can’t really see it. You can see the things that make light, like the sun, the light bulb overhead, or the fire in the fireplace. You can see other things like leaves, rocks, rooms, cars, and buildings because of the light that bounces off their surfaces into […]
