    Take your pick of pace at the tip of Mexico's Baja California

    Seth, Daniel Clowes think inside the box
    If you can imagine a bricklayer who's had it up to here with bricks, or a pastry chef who's frankly a little ambivalent about the whole flour and sugar deal, then you get Daniel Clowes. He works with words and pictures, but he's pretty suspicious of...

  • Taking note of music books

    Taking note of music books
    If writing about music is like dancing about architecture, as Elvis Costello and others have sneered, then what does that make reading about music? Well, fun, for starters. Although Bowker Market Research reports that music books have steadily comprised...

    Can the arts get smart about the smartphone?
    Shulamit Ran likes her ring tone. "It's a harplike arpeggio going up and down," says the Chicago composer, who won the 1991 Pulitzer Prize in music for her "Symphony." "It's very gentle. It's fun, and it's very delicate." And the tone, which came with...

    An auction house does clumsy art-shtick
    Odds are you won’t be bidding at Christie’s special contemporary art auction Monday night in New York. With estimates running as high as $12 million for a 1985 multiple of a Jeff Koons aqualung cast in bronze, which would helpfully drag...

     Sarah Horn: Part of a Bowl-ful of talent
    Before the Earth stopped turning so that everyone could halt their lives and watch the confused, gyrating choreo-ethnography that was Miley Cyrus' appearance at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, you might have stumbled upon a viral video of a very...
  • Kingsley Guy: After four decades, a fond farewell

    I headed south from Cleveland in 1976 for a job at a small daily newspaper called the Sun Sentinel. I planned to work there for a couple of years building my journalistic resume before seeking a position on a big-city publication. I soon realized,...
