Pappa Tarahumara: Eat. Sex. Disguise. by Luke Allen Feb 1, 2007

The fight of the grotesque monster consumer, endlessly Trying to be the "Face of the Times".Appropriation extraordinaire, the disguise of the modern amusement facade. The face book, in an endlessly repeating mirror hung on the skin to watch wilt as it's passed over by another trend. The three sisters embodied the rushing, frantic, always changing culture eaters of the ever modern consumer lifestyle. Trying to find sex or to use sex, to find food or to use food. They needed and they wanted, but I am not sure exactly what they wanted. Maybe they wanted it all. The elusive all.

Pappa Tarahumara: blog finito by Jessica Jobaris Feb 1, 2007

Vaudeville dolls, unsexy mime, cartoons and hypnotic flash-dance, with fart effects. What more could an audience ask for? Maybe less digression, although i debate and doubt myself, thinking maybe digression was the point. This futile topic about how modern woman can integrate in society sans sex or in full acceptance of her sex is just a round table discussion that moves in that order.. repeatedly around and around. The Buffoonery, cartoon soundtrack and overused placating innocence were the re-occurring cliche themes I saw, and maybe I'm not diggin' enough.

Inside Arts article Jan 26, 2007

A version of the following article was published in the Jan/Feb 2007 edition of Inside Arts Magazine. The topic? What will my job be like 50 years from now? When the New York Times announced earlier this fall that the Metropolitan Opera would begin broadcasting live performances in movie theaters in North America and Europe, it was curious to note that this was not the first time the Met had used such a strategy for reaching audiences. In 1952, approximately 70,000 people in 27 cities saw Carmen in movie theaters.

Historic moment for Seattle - Olympic Sculpture Park Jan 16, 2007

Seattle is so freaking lucky. The new sculpture park is opening this weekend and it is totally breathtaking. I had a little sneak preview a few days ago and feel privileged to live in a town that supports art with such a fabulous, accessible, beautiful and environmental outlook. Chris Rogers (OtB's Board President) was the project manager for the park - he and the rest of the visionaries who advocated for and supported this project should be commended.
