WED ? 14 Since most classes aren’t in session during midsummer, now’s as good a time as any for TCU to put on A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare’s hallucinatory farce set in an enchanted forest populated by fairies ...

Cecil Touchon’s show at William Campbell is fired by the idea that new styles and trends have swept the art world so fast that we haven’t been able to keep up.



This Movie Is Kick-Ass

It’s also a psychotic, satirical ode to superheroes.
KRISTIAN LIN
How do I describe the awesomeness of Kick-Ass? I could say this is the superhero flick that Watchmen desperately wanted to be, but that doesn’t quite cover it. I could call it a comic book fan’s dream come true, but then I...

Get Out!

Big Ticket
Spring is officially here, even if it came in with a blast of snow last week. This week’s weather should be nicer, in time for all of us to enjoy a nice crop of outdoor events.



St. Elsewhere?

Last Call
For the sake of some jokes, I spent half the morning trying to think up reasons why I don’t like St. Patrick’s Day or, as I like to call it, 24 to 96 Hours of Blarney Baloney. Truth is, I couldn’t think of any good ones, ...
