WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Don't Hate on 275

Some things are best in small doses. For instance, I hate reality television, but for some reason I can’t turn away when America’s Fattest Crybabies is on. I also recommend hanging out with Northside hipsters in the smallest amounts possible. Now, I’d like to add Worst Week Ever to that list.

The fall might be the only time of year when the weather starts getting cooler, but people in Cincinnati spend the entire year being totally cool. Here’s a list of 50 reasons* why the Queen City is cooler than ever this fall. *In no particular order. Be cool, man!  

King Makes a Comeback

We here in the CityBeat music universe just got word that thanks to a vote last month by City Council, $950,000 of a capital improvement program allocation earmarked for Evanston will go toward rebuilding King Records Studio a few blocks up from its original location at 1540 Brewster Ave. While the recently placarded historical site will continue to stand on Brewster, council plans to acquire three properties around the corner along Montgomery Road with the intention of transforming them into an all-in-one facility housing the King Records Memorial Hall.  

Chicago Food Tour

I always forget that East Coast-style culture is a mere five-hour drive from here because we have Chicago. Geography is a technicality. In Chicago, you get your “coast” (waves high enough to surf), your fashion (more gladiator sandals than you’d find in Pat Benatar’s garage) and, most importantly, your food (Chicago’s pizza will always win out over New York’s).   

Timecrimes (Magnolia)

2007, Rated R

I wish that I didn’t have to review Timecrimes. Not that I didn’t like it — quite the opposite. This Spanish sci-fi thriller is one of the most original films released in years. Why the hesitation? Simple. In order to experience this intense mind-fuck puzzle to its fullest, confronting it blank is essential.  

Fringe ... What We Need in 2009

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 18, 2009
Although there’s still a lot of winter chill in the air, my thoughts are already turning to the Cincinnati Fringe Festival, our annual theatrical treat that I think of as the kick-off for summer. It usually happens in late May and early June, just before the solstice, so it’s a reminder of good things to come. The sixth annual Cincinnati Fringe is set to open on May 26; performances will continue through June 6. Organized by Know Theatre of Cincinnati, the Fringe has become a much-anticipated annual component of our performing arts scene.  

Pushing My Buttons

After I read Larry Gross’ “Looking for the Joy” column (issue of Dec. 10), I ended up shaking my head as tears came streaming down my face. He has this way of pushing my buttons.  

Straight, No Chaser

CityBeat convenes a bourbon tasting panel

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 19, 2008
Tom Waits, George Thorogood, Charles Bukowski, Mike Figgis, Ray Carver and even W.C. Fields have portrayed bourbon as the “binge drinker’s best friend.” But store shelves are now packed with small-batch, artisanal American whiskies — selling at prices that rival the best single malt scotches and finest cognacs.
