Learning from a Rock Star’s 20,000th Day

20,000 Days on Earth defies easy categorization. We are taken on a journey through the life of iconic, post-punk musician and polymath Nick Cave in what, on one level, documents the everyday sights and sounds of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds laboring their latest album Push the Sky Away in its incubation stage. But, it is also layered with surreal dramatic scenes where Cave plays an abstraction of the character and the real person “creating a world,” narrating the script from afar.

Obamacare, Art, and Price Gouging

America is risk. That is the heart of this country, the implication of our collective Dream that we are taught to ascribe to as children. America is freedom. Freedom is risk.

DNA Galleries vs. Oklahoma City Thunder: The Metro’s More Important Success Story?

I am certain that Dylan and Amanda Bradway, owners of DNA Galleries, love the Oklahoma City Thunder and don’t relish a competition with the metro’s darling NBA team, but that won’t deter me because 1. It amuses me, 2. I think their similarities and differences serve a larger point on the future of our state, and 3. DNA is celebrating six years with a group art show opening tonight that features painted skulls.

X – The Lost Generation

Millennials are reading more than us. The Pew Research Center announced that  “88% of Americans under 30 read a book in the past year, compared with 79% of those age 30 and older.” This shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema

Don’t think of this as sixteen Polish films you know nothing about, rather this is Martin Scorsese revealing to us some of his best magic tricks. The Oscar-winning director is an obsessive fan of cinema, proudly bearing his influences in his own films such as “The Departed”, “Raging Bull”, and “Goodfellas”.
