  • Abstract Exhibit 'Cardinal Points' At Pearl Street Gallery

    Abstract Exhibit 'Cardinal Points' At Pearl Street Gallery

    A traditional landscape has a horizon line, and all of Lindsey Fyfe's little paintings conform to that rule in a minimalist, stripped-down way. As Fyfe's canvases get bigger, however, she tosses aside the rules. She lets her instinct, her arm and the "velocity" of the paint take over, resulting...

                      "Time Chasers" came out in March 1994 and impressed no one. The cheesy thriller told the story an average Joe who turns his airplane into a time machine, then must fight evil henchmen who want to exploit his discovery. A movie this bad is what RiffTrax is made for. RiffTrax, founded by "Mystery...

                              Crossing the Thames River on I-95, you can't miss a submarine-shaped billboard proclaiming Groton the "Submarine Capital of the World." That's no hyperbole.

                                      I admit it. I'm a pierogi snob. I like the ones my grandmother used to make at her church and the ones my friend buys me at a local shop near her home. That's it. So when a colleague suggested we have lunch (specifically, eat pierogies) at Staropolska in New Britain, which serves homemade Polish...

                                      'Jersey Boys' Remains Fresh, Swoon Worthy

                                      The musical "Jersey Boys" has been around for more than 11 years. To put that into perspective, that's about twice as long as the entire initial hit-making period of The Four Seasons, the group that the show is about. The Four Seasons charted 24 Top-30 hits between 1962 and 1968. Then came a fallow...
