          Two firefighters are posing inside of a giant wooden frame. Wearing helmets, boots and thick fireproof suits emblazoned with neon green tape, they're fully at their leisure in a color photo at MOCA. One leans casually on the other, and they gaze pleasantly at the camera from inside their shadow box. With the firefighters reduced to the size of action toys, the piece looks like an optical illusion or a clever bit of Photoshop work. It's not, though. The artist,…

          The Republicans running state government struck back against the federal Democratic health-care reform plan last week. At the behest of Gov. Jan Brewer, lawmakers let the federal government know they were ready to sue over the reform plan, arguing that it costs too much money, and it's unconstitutional to require every Arizonan to buy health insurance. Political posturing aside, lawmakers took no steps to actually deal with the ramifications of the health-care makeover—namely, that the state will have to re-establish…

          With the good comes the bad. It's this weird cosmic equalizer—like when you meet a really good-looking woman (good), and then she tells you that she was a cheerleader in high school (bad). I've been noticing examples of this good/bad phenomenon more and more often. For example: • It's GOOD that Kentucky didn't make it to the NCAA Final Four in men's basketball. I've hated Kentucky since I was a little kid. I remember sitting with a bunch of my…

        At 2 1/2 hours, 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' flies by, thanks to tension and a compelling narrative
          
            by James DiGiovanna
          
          
          When I see that a film is more than two hours long, I'm usually unhappy at the prospect of pretending to watch it so I can make fun of it in the newspaper. But The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is so well-constructed and fast-paced that it sped by as rapidly as a two-minute YouTube video of babies laughing at Glenn Beck. The film (and the novel on which it's based) was released as Men Who Hate Women, or some…

        There's much to learn from this college-oriented collection of social-action writing
          
            by Christine Wald-Hopkins
          
          
          Deep in the seventh chapter of this 10-chapter anthology of activist writing, instructor Judith Tannenbaum quotes a student from her San Quentin prison poetry class: Say how ya' doing / Outside world? / Do you remember me? / I'm the intricate part / Missing from the whole / The one y'all decided to forget. That notion could represent much of the writing in this gritty new collection, the clear purpose of which is to allow the marginalized to clang on…

          An Emmy Winner Chimes in Regarding the F-35 I used to live in the (military) over-fly zone and very often would see two to four jets in close formation low over the city. Common sense might suggest that one plane at a time would be both safer and quieter ("Stealth but Not Silent," March 25). Speaking of this, I quote Chris Reynolds, a former air-traffic controller and an alleged opponent of the F-35 in Tucson: "According to acoustic experts, one…

            by John Schuster
          
          
          TV STATIONS APPROACH 911 TAPE DIFFERENTLY It's a local television-news paradox: How do you separate yourself from the competition when you're basically reporting the same stories? As much as they attempt to market themselves as unique—KVOA Channel 4 is "4 Tucson," while KGUN Channel 9 is "On Your Side," and KOLD Channel 13 is "Live, Local, Late-Breaking"—in the end, they're working off the same template while covering pretty much the same material, and presenting it more or less in the…

          It's a sunny Saturday morning, and Ezra Roati is working in his yard. A small group of people work along with him, digging, building and planting. Mounds of dirt and rock are piled high, and the sound of a power tool fills the air. This isn't ordinary yard work. Roati and crew are "planting rain and growing shade." This is an expression Richard Roati, Ezra's father, uses as we talk in the front yard. They are members of the Watershed…

          Kimberly Reed's 20-year high school reunion offered her a chance to reconnect with her family in Montana—and redefine a relationship with a brother she hadn't seen in more than a decade. Her older brother Marc remembered and idolized her as Paul McKerrow, the star quarterback for the Helena High School football team, and the young man who was voted "most likely to succeed" by his senior class. However, Reed has a much different memory of the years before she underwent…

          When Scott Stockholm and his partner, Donn Mann, moved to Tucson from Indianapolis about four years ago, they were concerned about the lack of creative and fun social networks for gay men in Southern Arizona. They were introduced to Jeff Glebocki, who had also just moved to Tucson; Glebocki came from Cleveland, where he helped start G2H2, a monthly happy hour and networking event for gay men. Therefore, the three decided to bring the G2H2 formula to Tucson. For more…

          Amanda McBroom's life was changed by a traveling production of a musical revue. The first national tour of Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris came to San Francisco when McBroom was, in her words, a "straight, legit actor." Brel's music would soon change the trajectory of McBroom's career, influence her personal life and define the music she later wrote. Jacques Brel was one of the most famous singers and songwriters in France in the 1960s. His…

        by Gene Armstrong
          
          
          Skip Heller is a musician with many personae: soul-jazz revivalist; film-score composer; Latin dance-band leader; producer of albums; and singer-songwriter practicing bluegrass, alt-country, rockabilly and Bakersfield-style honky tonk. Because of his voracious appetite for making music of all kinds, he's been compared to Sun Ra, John Zorn and Frank Zappa. That sort of genre-hopping may be creatively appealing, but it might also confuse fans with minds that are less open. Heller isn't unaware of this, slyly titling a best-of collection…

        From the visuals to the storyline, 'Clash of the Titans' is a huge letdown
          
            by Bob Grimm
          
          
          The original Clash of the Titans had spectacular moments, the most memorable one being Medusa's lair, but it was mostly a campy mess, and a modern remake seemed like an inviting proposition. Had producers decided to make the picture in 3-D before Avatar's mega-success, we might've had something that was at least visually fun with this remake. Instead, filmmakers decided late in the game to convert Titans to 3-D in post-production. The result is a poorly executed story coupled with…

Heron, who was coming to terms with the fact that she was a lesbian, was in her late 40s and had recently left a Catholic convent; some friends invited her to join them at a commune in Oregon. While it didn't prove to be the best example of communal living, it was enough for Heron to realize that she liked much of what the counter-culture movement offered. After…
