reviewed Green Day: American Idiot. December 19, 2008
Album cover
First of all, let me begin this review by saying that I'm not a diehard Green Day fan. I've always been more of an "old school" punk fan. And Green Day's usually too commercially accessible …

reviewed Metropolitan Museum of Art. October 31, 2010
I often tell people, there is no greater museum city in the world than Washington, DC and having done a lot of traveling, I am pretty sure of what I say. But my favorite art museum? It has to be the Met.    …

Nosferatu, the Vampyre
**** out of ****    You know a classic film is close to somebody's heart when, to the Americans, it is foreign; but to the person describing the film, it is native - and yet the person …

reviewed El Norte. August 04, 2009

Self-portrait of Norman Rockwell
I am by no stretch of the imagination an art afficianado.  Frankly, I have no eye for art and for the most part have precious little interest in the subject.  Yet since I was a child I have …
