KEITH HARING AT THE DE YOUNG

A quick look at the de Young’s massive new Keith Haring retrospective, The Political Line. Focusing on Haring’s more deliberately political works, the pieces take on consumer culture, technology, sexuality, and racism head on, and span the length of Keith’s short but prolific career.

A couple weeks ago Oscar introduced me to George Carlin. I didn’t even know who this cat was until he came on the stereo. So I can only begin to put you up on his contributions to the world of comedy. But from what I can tell already, it seems like George Carlin’s brilliance lay […]

It’s hard to know what to do when you see numbers like this. I guess it’s one of the dangers of living in such a massive, developed country. What kind of context could you possibly have to place a figure like 43.6 million in? How do you address a systemic problem that’s rooted so deeply […]

DO YOU NEED TV?

Apparently, more than half of Americans don’t think so. According to a telephone survey conducted by The Pew Research Center, only about 42% of the people polled considered a television set to be a necessity. Just as important, that number has seen a sharp decline in the last few years, falling from 52% last year […]

Austin-based artist Erin Hanson is a self-described Recovering Lazyholic, using the term to title her collection of work, on display here. She […]

Having come of age in the midst of one of the most senseless wars in recent history, it’s hard for me not to be biased about our government’s foreign policy. I’d say I was “skeptical” about the claims that oil played no role in our decision to go to war with Iraq, if I wasn’t […]

WHAT MOTIVATES US?

Challenging the notion that humans are motivated by monetary rewards, Dan Pink presents a variety of studies that have tested this question to find out what truly motivates humans. I know, 10 minutes is kind of crucial, but this is one of those, “and after that I never thought the same again” videos. A paradigm […]

Amanda said, “science never ceases to amaze me.” And quite frankly I couldn’t agree more. Shit’s just hella fascinating. I think in our busy busy lives we (or at least I) don’t give science/the world/people the amount of time they deserve to really be understood.

By Matthew McDermott Once we’ve gotten our priorities straight regarding reducing the massive amount of oil we use in transportation – largely because we’ve built our communities into places where most people need to drive rather than walk, bike or take public transit -there’s another conceptually big issue that needs to tackled: What to do […]
