Event Reviews

Audioslave

After postponing the original show date to make history in Cuba, Audioslave finally arrive in Orlando to play an intimate venue in the midst of their arena tour. Jen Cray decides the wait was worth it.

College Music Journal's 2005 Music Marathon

Once again, New York City signals the end of summer with a non-stop CMJ Marathon. Tracy Fay gives us her highlights in this roundup.

Foo Fighters and Weezer

A post-grunge double header, with Foo Fighters and Weezer. Jen Cray is awed.

Pennywise

SoCal and NYC hardcore invade the Sunshine state with Pennywise and H2O turning Orlando's House of Blues into one large mosh pit. A drenched Jen Cray reports.

System of a Down

System of a Down fuse rap/metal with bold political opinion, and The Mars Volta are just bold, period. When the two bands tour together you've got one hell of a package deal. Jen Cray ignores the politics (mostly) for an unforgettable night.

Learn how to use a circle template to express the essence of human despair. Brian Heater did, and he's a better man for it.

Screen Reviews

A History of Violence

The hippies had it all wrong. Sometimes, you just gotta bash someone's face in. At least that's what Ian Koss thinks after watching David Cronenberg's latest.

Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning

Seven years of loving volunteer work produces an excellent Star Trek parody. Carl F Gauze thinks it's about time.
