            A few things that you should know, gosh darn it: • If you're involved with some sort of New Year's Eve/New Year's Day event—a musical event, a special dinner, anything—and you think there's a chance that we don't yet know about it, then drop what you are doing right now.…

        Our DVD reviewer's advice on what to stuff in your loved ones' holiday stockings
          
            by Bob Grimm
          
          
          
            I always like getting movies as gifts. The way I see it, getting something like Iron Man 2 on Blu-ray is huge, because that movie cost hundreds of millions to make—and it's all packed onto that little disc.…

        First Friday Shorts: The Loft Cinema, Friday, Dec. 3
          
            by Jimmy Boegle
          
          
          
            The Loft Cinema's First Friday Shorts event is one of the most consistently interesting evenings of entertainment around these parts—even when the short films playing on the Loft's big screen are awful. In fact, things tend to be a lot more fun when the films are awful.…

        ATC's Woody Guthrie production shows off the pleasing power of words and music
          
            by Sherilyn Forrester
          
          
          
            If you know anybody out there who harbors skepticism about the power of words and music to please, to help interpret the most brutal of life's blows, and to draw folks together by exploding the illusion of our differences, kindly escort them to the Temple of Music and Art, where Arizona Theatre Company has mounted an irresistible production of Woody Guthrie's American Song. You will experience a spunky distillation of the spirit, the simple eloquence and the good-natured energy of Guthrie.…

        by Gene Armstrong
          
          
          
            Initial descriptions of For the Ghosts Within focused on the fact that revered British art-rock musician, singer and composer Robert Wyatt was taking on jazz standards, a move that sounded intriguing enough. But that simple label doesn't begin to scratch the surface of this daring, adventurous album, a collaboration among Wyatt, saxophonist/composer Atzmon and violinist/composer Stephen.…

        The 'Chronicles of Narnia' franchise seems to be dying before our very eyes
          
            by Colin Boyd
          
          
          
            Without going too deeply into the history of the Chronicles of Narnia movie series, it is necessary to point out that The Voyage of the Dawn Treader represents the franchise at a crossroads, and examine why, three films in, the seemingly can't-miss money machine has reached such a low point. Decades ago, when C.S. Lewis' books were all the rage, it was impractical to think of films like this.…

            The news is all over the lamestream media: An international team of investigative journalists has infiltrated Santa's Workshop. They exposed elven hordes working 16-hour days in sweaty, converted bomb shelters under Santa's petulant, avaricious younger brother, Dick Claus—with only two 10-minute breaks per day and watery hot chocolate to sustain them.…

            Dear Mexican: Why can Aeromexico fly through any kind of weather to get to and from the United States, whereas domestic airlines cancel two days of flights due to any little ice sprinkle or heavy wind? For two consecutive winters, I've had flights—from Chicago to Houston to Leon, Guanajuato, on Continental Airlines, then Chicago to Dallas to Leon on American Airlines—canceled with a call I received while getting the suitcases packed!…
