Print Reviews

A Defense of the Constitutions of Government of the United State

Excerpts of Adams' writings about government and its contract with the populace tickle Carl F Gauze's fancy this time around.

Copper Press

Music magazines are one of Matthew Moyer's ten favorite sublime pleasures in life (write in for a list of the other nine). But, at present, his magazine-buying situation had grown pretty grim--until Copper Press saved him from the horror of Rolling Stone. Turn it up, bring the noise.

It's In The Book, Bob!

Ben Varkentine has read Bob Eubanks book. So you don't have to. You're welcome.

Kirsty MacColl: The One & Only

A new book shows a good part of why the late singer/songwriter was so much more than "The token daughter and the token wife" she ironically declared herself in song. It's not as good as a new Kirsty album, but what would be? Ben Varkentine's got a personal stake in this one.

The Jefferson Bible

Our Thrid President re-writes the Bible, removing all the miracles and mysticism. Carl F. Gauze is left distinctly unmoved.

Never Coming To A Theater Near You

In this lively book, film critic Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times complies a selection of “smaller” films that audiences may have missed in the theaters, and presents a brief case for each of them in hopes that it will spark a trip to a nearby video store. Ben Varkentine makes book on it.

Screen Reviews

Polar Express

A beautifully animated trip to the North Pole restores a boys faith in Santa, and Carl Gauze's in computer animation.
