            Natalie Portman will break your heart and freak you out as Nina, the unhinged ballerina striving a little too hard for perfection in Darren Aronofsky's harrowing and hallucinatory Black Swan. Portman tears into this role with such raw power that you'll wonder whether she will have anything left in the tank for future films.…

            Some 5,000 years ago, the ancient Irish built a mound tomb at Newgrange, in the Boyne Valley, a couple of hours north of today's Dublin. From the outside, the giant structure looks like a green hill, a grass-covered hillock rising up from the broad valley.…

        by Gene Armstrong
          
          
          
            From its first track, it's clear that with his latest disc, Bryan Ferry is intent on re-creating the intoxicating sound and love-hangover mood of Avalon, the last studio album by Roxy Music. The percolating synthesizer groove that courses through "You Can Dance" is a pumped-up version of the motif that kicks off "True to Life" from that 28-year-old recording.…

            Lodge on the Desert has always seemed like one of those hidden Tucson gems that natives like to keep in their pocket, showing it off to visitors on special occasions and holidays—though we rarely venture there by ourselves. The kitchen and hotel underwent a massive $15 million renovation in 2009—and the kitchen was the subject of an arson fire in February 2010, which caused an estimated $100,000 in damage.…

Baldenegro is considered a legend in the local Chicano movement—and luckily, he's still around to set the record straight about what happened on Aug. 15, 1970, when a group of Chicano activists took over the city-run El Rio Golf Course.

            If you're a critter, you'd best steer clear of Varmint Al. Hailing from Bethel Island, Calif., the self-proclaimed "coyote hunter" runs a website crammed with pictures of the snarling creatures and spiced by lurid accounts of these wild but often urban-dwelling canines attacking humans.
