  • Bob Stanley's 'Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!' is crazy in love with pop music

    In 1954, Bill Haley shook, rattled and rolled. In 2003, Beyoncé went crazy in love. That's two pop stars, among the biggest of their time, using similar language (and similar grooves) to describe more or less the same thing. But think of all that...

    Henry Phillips makes baked spaghetti, and the video is amazing
    Could comedian Henry Phillips be the next Emeril Lagasse? Nope. Not in anyone's lifetime. But this new video of him making baked spaghetti is amazing.  "I've found that if you have a really good saute pan, you really don't need someone to share your...

    Wikipedia pops up in bibliographies, and even college curricula
    All through high school, Ani Schug was told to steer clear of Wikipedia. Her teachers talked about the popular online encyclopedia "as if it wasn't serious or trustworthy" and suggested it only be used as a tip sheet. Imagine her surprise this spring...

    Obama has no foreign policy [Letter]
    I suggested to Funk & Wagnalls (I guess I should really tell Wikipedia, too) that the editorial regarding President Barack Obama's foreign policy be listed as a good example of "sycophancy" ("Obama at West Point," June 1). President Obama's foreign policy...

    'Mr. Magoo's' creator gets an overdue spotlight
    I remember first stumbling upon one of John Hubley's animated films when his Oscar-winning 1959 short "Moonbird" screened here last year. It returns this weekend in a retrospective featuring seven other Hubley shorts at the Siskel Film Center, which is...

    Tim Howard bends over backward to put World Cup effort in perspective
    It took goalkeeper Tim Howard years to become an overnight sensation, so he wasn't overwhelmed by the effusive praise he received for his acrobatic performance Tuesday in the U.S. World Cup team's round-of-16 loss to Belgium. "I just keep my feet on the...
  • Review: 'The Hundred-Year House' by Rebecca Makkai

    Review: 'The Hundred-Year House' by Rebecca Makkai
    "What is the opposite of memory?" asks a character near the end of Rebecca Makkai's second novel, "The Hundred-Year House." "What is the inverse of an echo?" Fate, of course, is the answer; history spelled backward, with the causality swapped to make past...
  • Emily Gould's 'Friendship' details lifestyles of the lost and spoiled

    In spite of its deceptive title, Emily Gould's new novel, "Friendship," offers a vivid exploration of the missed connections and overwhelming isolation of modern urban life. From the first few pages to the last, Gould's central characters, Bev and Amy,...
