Week of October 31 © Copyright 2013 Rob Brezsny ARIES (March 21-April 19): Once when I was hiking through Maui's rain forest, I spied a majestic purple honohono flower sprouting from a rotting log. As I bent down close, I inhaled the merged aromas of moldering wood and sweet floral fragrance. Let's make this scene your metaphor of the week, Aries....

AMAZING GRACE

By Bronwyn Ison The beauty and richness of the classic song, Amazing Grace, is endearing and iconic to me. Countless renditions of the song have been performed. It never seems to fail that my eyes well up with tears and my heart sinks every time my ears consume this song. Add bagpipes and you might as well bring on the...

By Eric the Red (Eric Robertson) Our desert’s music scene is an ever-changing landscape, with bands sprouting up like desert sage, and dying just as quickly.

AGED ACTORS IN ACTION

By Robin E. Simmons ESCAPE PLAN If you miss old-school, 80’s style action dramas with iconic leads, look no further than ESCAPE PLAN. There’s no deep meaning here. The big (?) draw is watching Sly and Arnold share the same screen, and they do in numerous scenes. This complicated prison-break thriller from director Mikael Håfström was mostly shot on a great...

Beer Economics

By Haddon Libby I don’t know about you but the whole government shutdown, debt limit manufactured crisis was like white noise to me.

Week of October 24 © Copyright 2013 Rob Brezsny ARIES (March 21-April 19): "I’m greedy," says painter David Hockney, "but I’m not greedy for money -- I think that can be a burden -- I'm greedy for an exciting life."
