House Obsession

BY Laurie in Boob Tube

Why is this show so good? No matter what else is on, I will immediately dig into any episode, especially since it seems like it 's always on, airing on about every channel except PBS. Hugh Laurie is peculiarly attractive to me, even tho he's totally not my type. Just re-watched the episode where House gets shot and that other guys' balls explode on USA, and now I can just flip to Fox for more episodes, this is good tv, people, and plenty of it. photo by Michael ...

Eggman at the Whitney

BY Laurie in General

If you happen to be in NYC anytime soon, check out the William Eggleston retrospective, Democratic Camera at the Whitney , it's pretty inspiring. Long known as the godfather of modern color photography, his pictures capture the beauty in the mundane suburban South of the 60's and 70's. The show is up until January ... Read More

From Russia with Love

BY Sarah J. in Artsy

Why am I writing to you about a comic called Battlefields? It's not just because of my deep and lasting love for the work of Garth Ennis, creator of Preacher, among many other excellent comics. It's because The Night Witches , a three-part miniseries, is the story of an all-female fighter pilot squadron in the Soviet Union during World War II. And yes, it's based on a true story. These women were given substandard planes and flew only at night, and faced ... Read More
