    Galen Todd's hip pop art
    When Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg and DJ Diplo are paying visits to South Florida concert venues, so is Galen Todd, bearing a paintbrush, a canvas and free access to paint his hip-hop heroes. Once a month, Todd treks to Fort Lauderdale's Revolution Live, the...

    Dunbar begins football preseason with interim coach
    Anyone looking through the fence as the season's first football practice was about to get underway Wednesday at Dunbar's East Baltimore field saw a bunch of guys in helmets and shorts and T-shirts tossing footballs, stretching or just talking....

    Matthea Harvey's 'Tabloids' mashes word pictures with imaginative art
    True story: A teenager saw me with Matthea Harvey's new book of poems as I sat with it in a café and asked if she could look at it. She was the scowly sort, angry tattoo on her shoulder, who I thought was going to ask me if I had a cigarette; not,...

    Robin Williams: Five performances to remember
    It wasn't his first film to do so, but the 1989 drama "Dead Poets Society" reminded millions that Robin Williams was an actor as well as a comic maelstrom as well as a star. The man introduced to those same millions a decade earlier in "Mork & Mindy"...

     Shakespeare dissed by Ira Glass

    Grant Park premiere honors composer's longtime love affair with Chicago
    Unless I miss my guess, no American city has done more to advance a composer's international reputation than Chicago has done for William Bolcom in recent decades. Under two successive regimes, Lyric Opera of Chicago has commissioned and premiered three...
  • How Robin Williams Inspired a Generation to Seize the Day

    It was "Dead Poets Society" that did it. That was the movie that pushed me over the edge from casual moviegoer to full-blown film junkie, the one that sent me back to the video store night after night looking for my next fix, desperate to discover other...
